Civil Disobedience 101

Good job. If you are going to break the rules to make your point, this is one admirably civil way to do it. Arguably this was a “publicity stunt,” but so are most of the daily speeches by politicians running for office, and they’re often quite hateful and destructive these days, unlike this protester.

I’ll let others speak here, first there is this, and also then there is that. Both statements are both reading.

What Emptywheel Said

The latest on an incredibly under-reported and suspicious case. Why did the FBI kill Ibragim Todashev?


Texas is a very big state and like Oklahoma, they wrote their law so broadly it invited legal attack. A ban in any form is unconstitutional, but this made it much easier for the judge.

Gov. Rick Perry decried Wednesday’s ruling, saying it is not the federal government’s role to overturn “the will of our […]

Surgeon General Nominee Blocked For Telling the Truth

Gun violence is a public health threat. And Rand Paul is rapidly becoming the most annoying jerk in the entire US Congress, trumping people like Ted Cruz and Paul Broun.
