"Why is this happening?" Matt asks.

Well gee, the causes and effects are most apparent. The real question is why did you expect to be not surprised?

It's sickening what happened to these little girl in Chicago and everyone who loved her. I can't believe the helmet didn't protect her. I am shocked! I thought they were magical.

White nationalists arrested in Idaho… but you tell us the police don’t ever stop any crimes? Hmmmmm.

Any Stranger “writer” that types something about the stock market is utterly hilarious. “Capitalism is bad when the market is up!” “Capitalism is bad when the market is down!” You’re trying to wish your socialism wet-dream into reality. Sorry, you’re outta luck.

So are the cops still useless? Seems they were on the ball this weekend. Maybe the "Pride" committee will revisit their most obnoxious stance and let cops share the true meaning of pride by being welcome to march in uniform.

"So are we about to enter a recession now, or what? Well, chances are that if you are capable of understanding that question and taking any meaningful action based on the answer, then you have already done so and you don't need some two-bit local blog to explain anything to you."

Self-awareness is the first step to something something...

@5, 6: they responded to a 911 call and pulled the van over; they had units in the area already. so impressive.

@4: you're a callous dick. you know what bike helmets are for, and their limits.

10

I guess we should be grateful no one in this well regulated militia was sharp enough to suggest loading the uhaul in a more secure location

11

Why didn't that Chicago mother stop her bike upon seeing the obstacle, and walk the bike and her kid around it on the sidewalk for safety instead of blindly darting out into traffic? So sad.

Obstacles are not an infringement on common sense.

@9: Well, then. The cops should have not pulled them over if it was not old-fashioned detective work from the very beginning. Really had to dig deep for that didn't you?

12

Bollards preventing parking/protecting bike lanes would have prevented the death of a 3 year old a few days ago, caused by a truck blocking a bike lane.

Good for Germany. Meanwhile we can't take a train north of Seattle.

@11: do you ever read what you're about to post back to yourself? you should sometimes.

Again enjoyed today’s hearing because it isn’t a rehash. I’m learning some astounding things, and Trump is clearly looking like the psychopath/narcissist mad man most knew he was. He was refusing to listen to trusted advisors who told him, “Mr. President, it’s over.” And all his claims of election shenanigans were being shot down one by one. He was saying (and had alluded to this before the election), “I’m not winning, therefore something must be corrupt.” Glad this is getting an official airing. I fear those who should be watching, aren’t. To all you Trump supporters (still), today’s takeaway is this: He was way, way more interested in injecting doubt into our government and its electoral processes than he was in discovering the truth.

About lesbians and U-Hauls, remember when the Tea Party was just cranking up, and they were calling themselves “teabaggers”? Weeks and weeks went by before someone told them, “Uh…dat means sumthin’ else.” And when they were told what the alternative definition was, they blinked three times in horror, and ran into the house to watch Hannity. They also stopped calling themselves that. People on the far right do not know camp. Any one of those turds in Idaho, if they heard the old joke about what a lesbian brings on a second date and got it, would be considered a scholar amongst his/her peers.

Don’t get too excited yet over that pretty weak gun control bill. I see it as Republicans shaking and fluffing that area rug before asking the Democrats to come stand on it, then snap-pull. “See?” they’ll say, “Damned ol’ Democrats can’t get nothing done.” BTW, did anyone see that ad from Trump’s Save America on the Sunday news shows? Democrats wasting time on a witch hunt while they should be tackling gas prices and inflation. Showed Biden slipping on Air Force One’s air stairs, and ends with a still of Trump rigidly saluting something. Really sickening and I wonder if it doesn’t violate the Standards of Good Broadcasting. I saw it both on CBS and NBC, but it looked pure Fox. Maybe even too over the top for Fox.

Unless we get churches out of our government locally all the way to federally (Mass at the Supreme Court), I think we’re headed back to the days where if you need an abortion, you have to travel to where you can get one, and as safe as we LGBT+ are feeling these days in some places, and assured in our newly acquired recognitions, I see returning to a dangerous past insofar as if you are gay, you’ll have to move to where your friends are. Don't you think religion is behind all that shit?

Countable you're likely to just Go for it.

he'd been setting it
up since day fucking one
when he declared 2016 Rigged

A Jan. 6 panel member
says Trump raising money off
bogus election claims was ‘the big rip-off.’

… the House panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol also made the case on Monday that his false claims amounted to a fraud perpetrated on his supporters.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren, Democrat of California, wrapped up Monday’s session by laying out how Mr. Trump’s campaign, a related political action committee and his allies raised $250 million by claiming they were fighting widespread election fraud at a time when they knew there was none.

“Throughout the committee’s investigation, we found evidence that the Trump campaign and its surrogates misled donors as to where their funds would go and what they would be used for, so not only was there The Big Lie, there was The Big Rip-off,” Ms. Lofgren said. [caps mine]

“Donors deserve to know where their funds are really going. They deserve better than what President Trump and his team did.”

they're all
Late.

Just had to join the chuckle about how useless our police are ... until they prevent a terrorist attack on Pride. Pride essentially BEGAN because of a terrorist attack BY the New York City Police Department upon gays. (How soon we forget.)
