    1. Ohio Senate Democrats hope the state’s General Assembly follows the lead from Congress and enacts gun legislation that would deal with background checks, age requirements and enact a red flag law in the state

      This hope runs afoul of the #JustPowers clause of The Declaraton of Independence.

      Simply put, all just powers of Government must be derived from individuals, and since no individual may do these things (if they did, they would likely be charged criminally for their violent actions to do so) no one can justly grant these powers to Government.

      Since it fails this test, the proposal is clearly unjust based on the test laid out in our founding documents. No party that consistently proposes imposing violent or unjust policies should be allowed to exist.

    1. Trisha Greenhalgh. (2021, December 27). This is nothing short of scandalous. Unless and until those leading the public health response acknowledge the AIRBORNE nature of the virus and give transmission mitigation advice commensurate with how airborne viruses spread, we will be yo-yoing from wave to wave ad infinitum.

    1. Watching Representative Katie Porter Grill Trump Administration Officials Is Still My Favorite Pandemic Pastime

      watching Katie Porter support repealing the SALT Caps has betrayed me to my core, shattered my hopes for what the Democratic party could be. pretending to speak for the middle class, she's giving an enormously regressive tax cut to the ultra-wealthy, and it's sickening to watch & soils my every memory of her fighting good fights. Incredibly dishonest & tragic, using so many fake GOP style "think of the middle class" ways to sell something that hardly affects them.

    1. In Georgia, which went for a Democrat for the first time since Bill Clinton in 1992 and just elected two Democratic senators — one Black and one Jewish — there have been a raft of proposed voter restrictions.

      This may of stuck out to me purely because I live in Georgia, but Blow's decision to include this in his article is interesting. The democratic victory was determined to be the direct result of increased voter turnout, particularly in communities of color. It is interesting that the legislation he mentions here manages turn this victory into a loss of some sort.
