The #January6th Committee/Hearings are probably not what you're hoping for. They amount to a confirmation that Republican privilege comes first, in America, even though disagreements over "by how much" have erupted into violence. https://www.mattkuhns.com/2022/06/january-6-committee-hearing/ #January6thCommittee
Feline Emergency: How may I direct your call?
Cat: Everything is under control here, I just called for a chat - everything quiet your end?
FE: Yeah, you know how it is - we're only here because we didn't want dogs to have something we didn't. No cat actually needs us.
Cat: True. Hey, did you hear the one about the dog who did an entire job interview with an ear inside out?
FE: That was a good one, classic dog move.
Cat: Oh, gotta go - the puppy has got his head stuck in a tissue box, so I'm gonna take a swipe at his tail while he's distracted.
FE: A cat's gotta do what a cat's gotta do, have a good day.

I do love the #wnba
And I respect tf out of the proud political advocacy
But it's tremendously saddening listening to the hopelessly naive ideas, this evening, not because they are specific to the WNBA but precisely the opposite.
It's a reminder that, despite small spreading skepticism, a popular conviction persists that the political system is functional. That the people can "push past the blockage" and will e.g. gun safety policy into reality.
The US political system, itself, IS the blockage.
My intended left-side banner is on the right side, and vice versa, but probably I'll just shut up and not make noise about it 😂
