They're selling fixtures at Twitter today. I'm wondering how long it is before he moves it to Texas (or Florida).

Considering who it's from there's probably a curse attached to it.
Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. - Karl R. Popper

Maria Ressa has won her tax case in the Philippines. She's not out of the woods yet (the government filed several cases against her), but this is a good sign:

Now that George Santos is denying that he stole from a GoFundMe account for a dying dog, as well as that he was a drag queen in Brazil, should his stage name be changed to Miss Liza Lott?

More documents have been found.   It's getting to the point that every time I open Google news, another story about more docs is posted.

It's quite maddening. Some of the documents found earlier were from Biden's days as a Senator and then Vice President. Which makes me wonder what other former Senators and such have documents in their position and more importantly, how are classified documents handled by the Archives and how do they get into such a mess as with Biden? If classified documents are so serious, why weren't these Biden documents known to have existed and gotten back. Don't they even use barcodes for these things?

I mean, if the Trump situation wasn't so serious, this news with Biden wouldn't even be news because he's handling it the way one should, informing the archives and following lawful procedures. But the OPTICS at present are horrible. And, of course, the "news" can't leave it alone because the spotlight is ON. It's so infuriating because it's possible any course of action against the evil orange cretin might be delayed or not even acted upon because of it, I fear, and once again he'll slip through the justice system.

Madness!

Emphasis on mad. I'm pissed off!  >:(

I can't remember where it was, but it seems somewhere not too long ago I read something about the many different levels of "Classified" there are. Of course the public will never know what's in any of these documents, Trump's or Biden's, because, well, they're Classified.

Now they've found documents in Mike Pence's home.

I expect they'll find Pence's situation perfectly understandable, and Biden's as the crime of the century.
