Our democracy is dissolving in front of our eyes. It’s quaint that we used to think the endgame was to horde the wealth. They want our very lives.

This is one of those Supreme Court opinions that sounds like a stupid joke to anyone without a terminal case of lawyer brain. "If you get sentenced to death because your lawyer sucked, actually it's your fault, also it's illegal to present evidence that your lawyer sucked."

I always feel sorry for the out-of-towners and newcomers to San Diego when they learn that May and June are our “winter.” Come back in July!

Walked outside in San Diego this morning. It's legitimately...pretty chilly. It's almost June! Is it always still this cold? How did I not know this was a thing? 😭😭😭

Quote of the month: "It's not my duty as Mayor to make sure you have a parking spot. For me it's the same as if you bought a cow, or a refrigerator, and then asked me where you're going to put them." Miguel Anxo, Mayor of Pontevedra, Spain.

Ummm. I’m no constitutional scholar but this seems like it might violate the establishment clause?

Sooo, an Oklahoma bill would fire teachers for "offending Christian morals" by teaching biology. WTH? The bill would allow parents to sue teachers $10,000 "per incident, per individual." The fine would need to be paid by the teacher "from personal resources" and the

In my grandmother’s memoir The Unforgotten she speaks repeatedly of Nazi officers and officials in the early to mid 30s telling her, in trains, at parties, with 100% conviction, “well, *obviously* we don’t mean you.”

I wanna expand a little more about whether “walkability” is ableist. I spend tons of my personal time pushing for a more equitable and accessible transportation system — the “cars first” crowd we are fighting against are the most *psychotically* ableist people you’ll ever meet

Someone last week shared my four-year-old thread about Lori Saldaña’s failure to tell San Diegans she knew Bob Filner was a predator. I want you all to know that (1) I’m aware she’s currently running for City Council this time, and (2) I stand by my assessment.

<Thread> 1. Check out this ad about the egregious failure of Lori Saldaña to warn San Diego about what she knew about Bob Filner — then proceed to actually endorse him for mayor to advance her own political career.

Elon Musk is really doing an incredible job educating the public about how capitalists end up aligning with fascists to maintain their wealth and limit the power of the working classes.

If one party announces daily in skywriting that it wants to install a White Christian Nationalist dictatorship, and then that party proceeds to get the most votes in the election, and then that party installs a White Christian Nationalist dictatorship, whose fault is it
