As usual, the poor get hit hardest by progressive policies.
Obama created DACA by executive fiat. Trump wants to end it by the same. I've yet to see a plausible explanation of why the first is legal and the second isn't. The arguments seem to amount to "Trump said the wrong magic words."
This has nothing to do with my opinion of DACA, only with logic and consistency. If I've missed something, let me know.

Veterans' Day and Memorial Day are getting to be the hardest days to get through online. The Left and Right alike go wild telling us how the warfare state protects our freedoms and we ought to be grateful. I've already blown up at one person. Maybe I should just stay off all discussion forums (except this one :) for the rest of the day.
Cops record being given criminal orders and resign rather than carry them out. Kudos to them for having a spine.

Police and FBI are investigating flyers in Hartford, CT, and a university president has threatened legal action. As far as I can tell from the news story, the flyers contain no threats or illegal content. The story doesn't say what charges the cops are planning to fabricate.

New Hampshire has discussed moving to Atlantic Time to get rid of this Daylight Saving Time nonsense. Cats would agree.
59% of New Hampshire Republicans like Tulsi Gabbard. I'm sure that's almost entirely because Hillary Clinton hates her.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
