Goddamnit. That means my upstairs neighbor is going to be exercising early in the morning until October?

Thanks to Chase (and everyone else) for the daily updates!
So following the Swedish model, western Washington licks the doorknobs, and eastern Washington drinks bleach, or is it the other way around?

@Lissa
Chas's tweet
says it All.

Put THAT mofo on Sinclair Broad.
If I was a Billionaire I'd MAKE 'em.

Spare a (measly) Billion, anyone?

Nazis love purges.

How in the hell are we going to open up a portion of the economy / outdoor recreation if people can't even follow the one way signs per aisle in the grocery stores? Sometimes I think we deserve this.

"Are digital protests effective?".
Yes, that way 99.9999% of the population will never know it happend.
Now, what will Sawant do with all those signs she printed up at Taxpayer's expense?

13

Why can't Inslee control the camping in Ballard? No social distancing there at all.

14

Wow. Portland's Merc called the overly well-armed far right Capitol Invaders 'Terrorists' although Brownshirts might be equally apropos.

BINGO, Merc.

15

Gotta wonder if the Negroes tried the same Bold Action / armed insurrection would they be met with thermometers -- or billy clubs / mace / sound cannons / Tanks?

I don't understand Karen Pence's claim, is she saying Mike is not an arrogant asshole, he's "only" a moron? For a VP I'm not sure moron is actually better, and anyway the two options are not at all mutually exclusive, might even be somewhat related.

@3: Graciously and politely let the neighbor know it's bothering you and he or she will probably accommodate. Sounds like an issue of being unaware of its impact.

17

[gosh -- Three comments at Exactly the same time!

You can see whose they Liked best].

@15 - i was just about to post something similar...if this was a crowd of black dudes they'd be mowed down.

How very magnanimous of the wealthiest man on Earth to offer to continue paying the salaries for people specifically working for corporate, and thus most directly fueling his vast wealth, currently from their homes. A big "fuck you" to the even larger pool of non-FTE staff that work there by not even acknowledging them though (except, of course, the ones that facilitate work at corporate). But then, I don't think Amazon considers them people in the first place.

@15 and 18

Here in Michigan black folks that break the stay at home order get $1000 tickets, and white folks that bring guns to the Capitol to threaten lawmakers are allowed to "protest" (and to block access to hospitals) without any type of punishment. (unless you consider not being allowed on the floor of the State House with weapons punishment)

22

After this latest round of billionaire giveaways. Each one of us owes $70,000 toward the national debt.

@15:

I think it's a combination of the two: he's an asshole for ignoring the Mayo Clinic's policy, which was communicated to him prior to his visit and which HIS OWN OFFICE forwarded to the press pool the day before they accompanied him on the visit (https://www.businessinsider.com/pence-threatened-reporter-proved-knew-mayo-clinic-mask-rule-2020-5), AND he's a moron for believing nobody would notice or call him out on it.

24

Says Nancy: "I have complete respect for the whole #MeToo movement...there's also due process..."

Talk to Al Franken about that. Oh right, he was a Senator, not in your domain.

25

Those who seek to strike terror in others are themselves continually in fear.

The epitome of white privilege. And Trump's calling them "very fine people." We all know if armed black men stormed the capitol of any state they would all be gunned down and blamed for their own deaths before their bodies hit the floor.

FUCK THE UNITED STATES OF WHITE SUPREMACIST TERRORISM AND ITS STUPID SHITBAG GRAND WIZARD DONALD TRUMP.

Oklahoma City bomber Terry Nichols—the accomplice of Timothy McVeigh—was born and raised in Michigan, and met McVeigh while in the Army. In 1991, he invited McVeigh to join him at the family farm in Decker, where they coordinated the gun sales that provided them with income; it was there, while watching news about the 1993 destruction of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, that the two men first discussed a retaliatory attack on the government. Terry’s brother, James Nichols, was an avid member of the Michigan Militia—though up to his death in 2017 at age 65, James Nichols denied any involvement in the bombing.
