Notably: We’re still not getting along, and it’s 31 years ago that the brutalizing of Rodney King set off the rebellion in Los Angeles. Calling them “riots” is one of those euphemisms, either lazy or tendentious, that the media play right into, or perpetrate, to the delight of the elected and their minions in business, or vice versa. The word riot is reductionist to the point of absurdity. It’s defined as “a violent disturbance of the peace by a crowd,” as if it just happens, out of the blue, like lightning on a summer day. The word reduces its participants to criminals, their acts to wanton acts of random destruction. TV viewers in the plush comforts of their La-Z-Boys in Nebraska like nothing better than to devour the reduction whole, because it all stops with the act visualized on TV. As with most things on TV, there’s no backstory, no context, though it would take a split second to remind the lazybuoyed that by that definition the Tea Party in Boston harbor was a riot, or that the entire American Revolution was a riot the Americans happened to win, so they could call themselves victorious rebels (the way the Lost Cause wishes it could have called itself). Easier to reduce the already-marginalized and mis-colored to mere rioters. Makes it easier to boot the odd Black and transgender legislator out of the chambers. Aren’t they rioters? Isn’t that what Florida law now criminalizes?

Oddly, rightward-leaning justices have come to see the suppression of evidence as a method of punishment, not protection, a measure to curb particular officers misconduct, not to preserve defendants’ rights. Justice White made this cramped argument in Leon, saying, “Penalizing the officer for the magistrate’s error, rather than his own, cannot logically contribute to the deterrence of Fourth Amendment violations.” But the officer didn’t have probable cause to get a warrant in the first place; why should he be absolved? And what is to deter the sloppy magistrate? When the judge is also wrong, couldn’t he use a little correction? The Court’s solution is to punish the violated citizen for the judge’s error.

This event will also have local authors (with their books for sale), and panel discussions on various topics. Come on by, say hello, and support our wonderful library.
Pat Stote says
Please, I can’t get myself to believe this “rematch” is going to happen. I’m hoping for some kind of a miracle. It’s still a long time away. We can only hope.
Can't believe it says
I can’t believe you actually printed a cartoon showing how incompetent Biden really is. For those who voted for him, still defend him and plan to vote for him again, I hope you are enjoying the high gas prices, high grocery prices, paying off someone else’s student loan, when you had to pay for yours, paying higher prices for a mortgage if you have good credit, to subsidize those who do not, being told you have to buy an electric vehicle that you cannot afford or charge, our dismal reputation across the world, as he allows China, Russia, North Korea and other countries to humiliate us on a daily basis, support his ridiculous energy policies that have zero impact on global warming and climate change (when China and India continue to pollute the planet), your daughters or grand daughters competing against men in sports, and having to share a locker room with boys. And the latest thing from the head of the department of energy, to have all our military vehicles which defend us and other countries around the world, be electric by 2030, and of course buy the batteries from China. When will you realize the demise of our country, all for the hatred of Trump? If Biden was a surgeon, would you let him operate on you? If he was an attorney, would you hire him? Be honest with yourself, he is the worst president our country has ever had, and it is well past time for a change. Don’t let him continue to destroy our country, our freedoms and our reputation as the greatest country in the history of the world.
Biden is doing a job while the Republicans are distracting us with mind blowing, foolish nonsense because they do not have any plans to help us.
No you can’t:
Gas prices are high, but have come down. We will always be at the mercy of places like Saudi Arabia and Russia if we continue to rely on fossil fuel.
High grocery prices are simply large corporations gauging us. We keep hearing how bad it is by Republicans, yet go out and see all the people at Lowe’s, Home Depot and Publix. They are still spending money, and the companies are taking advantage of it.
From Snopes regarding higher fees for good credit: “Rumors that U.S. President Joe Biden was pushing for, or had introduced, these changes were not supported by evidence. Moreover, the White House rejected that claim. There was no congressional measure or executive order related to the changes, and, based on our research, Biden had not publicly commented on the FHFA’s decision to change the fee structure.
Paying off student loans should be the responsibility of the borrower. However, I believe the loans should be re-evaluated as these loans have been proven to be predatory. No one borrower should be completely pardoned. I paid my full college off with no help.
No one is telling you that you must buy an electric vehicle. You still have your gas stove and washing machine as well.
Trump praises Xi Jinping as he admires Xi for being President for Life. Trump admires Kim Jong Un, who is still testing nuclear warheads over South Korea, and brags he can hit the U.S.. Trump admires Vladimir Putin, and chose to believe him over our own intelligence. That’s as about as bad as it gets for us in the world, with the exception that Republicans are holding us hostage over the debt ceiling which is a loan already taken and used, which ceiling was raised three times by Trump, which Trump added 25% debt to in just four years.
I’m not even going to discuss the absurd culture wars the Republicans are throwing out there to stay in the news. DeSantis is pulling stunt after stunt after stunt to take all the oxygen, and intelligence out of the room.
A big difference between Biden and the Republicans is, Biden is working and Republicans are bitching. Biden doesn’t talk about himself constantly like Trump does. Ego extraordinaire!
Change the channel.
Right On Laurel! Unfortunately, posting actual facts seems to be completely wasted on many of the brain washed FOX “cult” members. Maybe, just maybe a couple of more ‘open minded” people will start to do as you suggested and change the channel to PBS, the BBC. . . and “read” factually credible articles on the Associated Press web site. All we can do is continue to point to the factual truth. . . I know I will.
The demise of our country came under the vile and corrupt Trump – a lifelong con man and crook, totally unfit in temperament, character, competence and intelligence to hold the office.
Biden was handed a shit mess and for those of us not in the cult, is doing a more than adequate job of cleaning up the mess.
Do you smell the alternatives offered by the Republican Party?
