"They are trying to steal the vote and will perfect and protect their fraudulent voting system when in power ... You will have a tyrannical dictatorship." a tweet read.

Yeah.  They only arrested north of 10,000 of them.  That like the same as arresting one Patriot.  It's not fair!

Well, it pretty much all translates to, "In the embrace of the great Nurgle, I am no longer afraid, for with His pestilential favour I have become that which I once most feared: Death," anyway.  You ain't missing much.

Republican propagandists intentionally put them in an inverted reality, so they thought they were fighting for our democracy while trying to destroy it. It's standard Conservative LARPing as "patriots", taken way too far.

I read today that they have now charged over 300 people. Keep it up, FBI.

Wipe them out, all of them.

I think if I was granted three wishes, one of them would be that every single person who voted for Trump in 2020 have painful, smelly, and bloody diarrhea every day for the rest of their lives to the extent that they would not be able to keep a job or have anything resembling a relationship with anyone other than a live-in nurse.

Rule #1.  Don't commit treason.
Rule #2.  Don't wear your uniform when off duty.

Both are termination offenses depending on severity.

Just the fact that a lot of the insurrectionist didn't even bother to try and conceal their identity shows they were sure they were protected by the Cadet's words.

If he's upset with people trying to "protect their fraudulent voting system" then he needs to look no further than McConnell - over the past 4 years there have been countless of bills that passed congress about increasing voting security, funding, etc. which all ended up fossilizing on McConnell's desk instead of being brought up for a vote in the senate.

If our voting system is broken, then the blame for that belongs squarely in the GOP corner.

He was later fired for "misrepresenting the company in illegal activities,"

... okay, California has actually managed to surprise me with how strong its worker protections are on this one.

I assume that you can't actually fire someone for committing a major felony in itself until they're formally charged by a grand jury or something?  Kinda curious about the details of employment law that force them to skirt around the edge of the actual issue like that and make it about the company logo being employed in the crime and not the employee committing the crime.

// I'm okay with this as a reason for firing, by the way.  I've been to some BLM and finance-related protests and had I worn a company badge to them I'd have both been expecting to be fired and completely accepting of it when it happened.  I'm just curious why the company has to use that entirely legitimate but much, much lesser cause when "the employee committed a number of federal crimes that add up to something that can colloquially be legitimately called high treason against the nation in which we were incorporated, attempting to destroy the civil entity whose existence our company requires to continue if we want to do business".

Maybe I don't understand bail, but I don't get how someone just coughs up $50k. Maybe I could pull this off if I could tap into a 401k, but my guess is that my wife would let me rot in jail rather than do that.

Bail bonds:

"A judge sets a bail amount. If the defendant cannot pay the bail amount on their own, they can seek help from a Bail bondsman in the form of a Bail Bond.
To post a Bail Bond, a defendant is usually required to pay a Bail bondsman 10% of the bail amount.
The Bail bondsman will then secure the rest of the bail amount in the form of collateral. If the defendant does not have enough collateral, the Bail Bondsman might seek out relatives and friends to assist in covering the bail.
Often times, an additional cash payment plus full collateral is required for a Bail Bond to be posted.

What happens next depends on if the defendant appears in court after being released.

If defendant fails to appear in court:The Bail Bond is forfeited and the court requires the remaining 90% of the bail to be paid. The Bail Bondsman will use the defendant's collateral (house, jewelry, stocks, etc) to pay the court the remaining bail amount.

If a defendant does appear for court:Upon conclusion of the court case, the Bail Bond is dissolved and the collateral is returned to the person who posted it. The Bail bondsman keeps the 10% cash fee as profit."

WhackingDay: Maybe I don't understand bail, but I don't get how someone just coughs up $50k.


They use a bail bondsman.

The purpose of bail is to compel the arrestee to show up at their court date. For this reason bail is commonly set at whatever level is financially inconvenient for the arrestee. If you're flat broke, bail might only be a few hundred dollars. If you're rich, bail might be in the millions.

If you show up at your court date, you get your bail back. If you don't, the court keeps the money and issues a new warrant for your arrest and you're even deeper shiat.

Obviously most people do not have the immediate funds to cover bail up front, so they go through a bail bondsman. The bondsman puts up the money and they make sure you show up at your court date so they can get their money back. They charge a nominal fee (usually interest or a fraction of whatever the bail is) for this and this is how they make their money.

If you don't show up at your court date then the bondsman gets REALLY mad and sends a skip tracer (ie: bounty hunter) after you. There are a lot of TV shows about tracking down fugitives who've skipped bail.
