Incarceration should be reserved for those who cannot, by any other means, be dissuaded from harming others.

Justice is making the wrong thing right, making whole those who have been harmed.

Prisons are about punishment, not justice.

They must be abolished.

On this day in 1775, British police shot several people while confiscating weapons of war from private citizens, including African-American man Prince Estabrook.

Republicans responded by condemning Estabrook as "not a law abiding gun owner" and started the hashtag.

Democrats responded by criticizing the police for racist enforcement of gun laws and calling for more gun control.

Democrats sowing gun control laws: Haha fuck yeah!!! Yes!!

Democrats reaping gun law enforcement: Well this fucking sucks. What the fuck

Republicans when Democrats sow gun control laws: Well this fucking sucks. What the fuck

Republicans reaping gun law enforcement: Haha fuck yeah!!! Yes!!

Breonna Taylor was my sister.
George Floyd was my brother.
Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nichols were my father and mother.

My name is Duncan Lemp.

I aim to misbehave.

What if we required ID to vote, but that ID had to be a vaccine passport

This is a brilliant compromise that both Republicans and Democrats can support

Opinions I am super not interested in include, but are not limited to, calls for children to be sentenced to death or life without parole, especially from folks who were arguing last week that people shouldn't be cancelled for doing bad things as teenagers

the left has decided that the perpetrator of one crime is morally white

the right has decided that the victim of one crime is morally white

and their entire response is based around what color people are

because their intent is to divide the people and set us at each other.

CRIME: *occurs*

THE LEFT: as soon as I heard about this crime I knew they were white

THE RIGHT: *angery noises*

CRIME: *occurs*

THE LEFT: okay hand me your script, it's time to switch

THE RIGHT: as soon as I heard about this crime I knew they were black

The government should not be in the business of telling children who they can or can't play sports with.

If we hadn't incorporated youth sports into mandatory government education, this would not even be an issue.

I want trans men and trans women in sports.

I want performance enhancing drugs in sports.

I want prosthetics in sports.

I want surgical enhancements in sports.

I want cybernetic implants in sports.

I'd finally start watching sports if it was that badass.

Some people have knowledge that's deep and exhaustless on the topic they study, like a well.

Others have knowledge that's broad and expansive on a variety of topics, like a lake.

I have knowledge that's shallow but gets everywhere and makes a mess, like an overflowing toilet

your royals: racist, imperialist

my royals: support equality for all species, fight to overthrow empires

The only good thing Joe Biden ever did was accidentally blurt out that Obama supported marriage equality, which forced the administration to start supporting marriage equality in order to save face.

So of course he apologized for it.

The United States ought to have the same minimum wage as other advanced countries like Denmark and Sweden.

For centuries, the American tradition was for the progressives to support wars, and for the conservatives to oppose them.

Now, whether or not someone supports a given war is more likely to be determined by partisanship.

Whose sin was greater?

George W. Bush for making conservatives forget they hated war

Barack Obama for making progressives remember they loved it

Taxation is the price we pay to live in a wretched hive of scum and villiany

Hats off to these two brave officers in , who broke from the . It takes incredible courage to do the right thing, knowning the punishment they will inevitably face.

The world needs more good cops like these.

Conservatives are mad that people fleeing northward in search of freedom are breaking the law by illegally crossing a river and I don't know if they're defending our modern immigration system or the Fugitive Slave Act

The conditions under which you may use violence in self-defense or defense of others against civilians and against government agents are the same.

Dennis Tuttle and Kenneth Walker did nothing wrong.
