OptimisticCynicism: Wait a sec - a legit reform in this year or protest? What the hell is wrong with this world?


Electing Democratic governors (and legislatures) can cause crazy shiat to happen.  Why I hear they elected a Democratic governor in KY and they got healthcare.

Virginia has been killing it.   Sweeping common sense gun reform including limiting handgun purchases to one a month, allowing authorities to take away guns from those deemed at risk to harm others or themselves, require reporting of lost or stolen guns, allow gun bans in public spaces, and increase the ability to regulate storage and possession to local authorities.   And increase penalties for child endangerment and those with protective orders violating gun bans.

They've decriminalized marijuana, made LGGTQ a protected class, gotten rid of Lee-Jackson day, allowed local authorities to determine their own monuments, made election day a holiday, banned conversion therapy, and gotten rid of restrictive abortion laws.

They've also put into place an insulin price cap.

Damn proud of my state finally getting it's shiat together.

Knock-knock.

Who's there?

Police?

Police who?

Yeah, we have to announce ourselves now; we can't just barge in and shoot everyone any more.

Another victory for Venezuela-style socialism.


Yes, because only rich white Americans deserve healthcare. Everyone else needs to go off and die, somewhere else

My staunchly republican grandfather lived in Wytheville.  Sadly he died last year at the ripe old age of 100, but even he had had enough of Trump's sh*t and was planning, for the 1st time in his life, to vote D.

His brother and his niece, OTOH, are Floridiot Trumpers who, had they not been after his money, would have disowned him for the about-face.  The breaking point came when he pointed out to his brother that they were both the original anti-fascists and took a really unpleasant holiday in Europe over 70 years ago to fight fascists, so he couldn't understand why his brother was now a fascist himself.  Ever tried to stop a nonagenarian punch a  centenarian?  It's pretty easy.

Anyway, I used a point I gleaned from Fark to effect change in a radical Trumper.

Pinnacle Point: I first read that as no-knock weddings.


Isn't that the pre-shotgun wedding?

I have been repeatedly and credibly advised on multiple message boards that any police violence and misconduct only occurs in Democrat cities run by Democrats and it's all their fault. So this must be fake news.

The same people also claim that police violence and misconduct doesn't actually exist because if the cops kill anyone they obviously were resisting and deserved it.  So clearly there's no need to ban no knock warrants anyway.

/s/

To clarify, no-knock warrants were ended for drug warrants. They can still burst in unannounced for other types.

Giving people healthcrae isn't stigginit, and so therefore bad, maybe.

You should try finding old blackface pictures of more governors. It apparently leads to results.
