You Can Do It! [DOT 28/7/21]

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Hope you are having a good week so far. Better than these guys at least…

Blue Lives Matter, Unless They Are Brown

He told the panel a woman in a pink MAGA shirt then yelled, “You hear that guys? This n***** voted for Joe Biden.” Dunn said that the crowd of around 20 people joined in screaming, “Boo, f****** n*****!” Dunn continued, “No one had ever, ever called me a n***** while wearing the uniform of a Capitol Police officer.”

These guys did their job…

‘This is how I’m going to die’: police tell panel of trauma of Capitol attack

…this asshole could pretend to do his…

I’m not 100% sure what is going on here but I think it’s probably funny. Cuz he’s a dick.

Hope she takes care of herself!

The kids are alright.

These boys found turtles squashed on the road. Now they spend their days helping other turtles get across.

Have a great day!



  1. Here’s a little factoid I just came across. The NYC subways are way down from their peak ridership. Sill, at about 2.5 million riders per weekday, that’s greater than the populations of 14 states and the District of Columbia. Recently (prepandemic 2019) the subway was averaging about 5.3 million per weekday. That’s greater than the population of 28 states and the District of Columbia. If you figure that the vast majority are making roundtrips the number of actual human beings goes down by half, but 6 states and the District of Columbia have a population of less than 1 million.

    As someone who holds an unused Metrocard from 2019 I want Congress to introduce a bill whereby NYC subway riders get their own 2 Senators. That’ll probably happen around the time DC gets its own 2 Senators.

  2. That first quote says alot, Dunn continued, “No one had ever, ever called me a n***** while wearing the uniform of a Capitol Police officer.” 
    Meaning it’s commonplace when wearing street clothes?
    HBO documentaries is breaking me. First Woodstock ’99 and now Ronan Farrow on Harvey Weinstein.

  3. It’s disheartening to see the number of men commenting on social media how Simone Biles “gave up” on her team.  These are the people we largely trust to coach our daughters and granddaughters.

      • They are so fragile. WhAt iF BreTT FavRE quIt in tHe MiDDle oF the SUPERBOWL!?!?!?

        Nah, bro, he just was taking literal handfuls of Oxy and sending pics of his dick to unsuspecting women. That seems better. 

        Same with Michael Phelps, who got caught drunk driving (IIRC) and smoking pot and now shills for online mental health resources. 

    • Here is an interesting twitter thread about Simone Biles and “the twisties”


  4. I heard two quotes on yesterday’s episode of Marketplace, both related to how fucked up this country is, but from different stories:

    “Other countries have social safety nets.  The United States has women.”

    “I make more money working 20 hours a week as a bartender than I did working 40 hours a week as a teacher.”

    Unrelated:  last night I realized that Simone Biles uses the Royal We.

    • My wife just hired a media specialist to work in her library from a local public school system. Moving to a city-owned library from the school system doubled her salary. And she, being very frank, is clear that this job is vastly easier than her former job. 
      I’m just going to stop for one moment and note that my salary is currently double what this woman is overjoyed to make at the library. So she was making a quarter of what I make, and I don’t make that much. She was well below the local poverty line, working in a school system with children in a library. And she’s good at her job. It breaks your heart. 

    • One of the dismal things about the debate on this issue is the way so many business reporters fail to rub two brain cells together and do basic math.
      They credulously accept corporate spin that they are trying hard with signing bonuses of say, $500 for fast food workers.
      Do the math and you realize for someone working just half time for only six months that comes out to just $1 an hour. For someone lucky enough to find a full shift who lasts a year, it’s 25 cents an hour.
      Workers are smart enough to see how little this means. Business reporters are not.

      • FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK that guy. Someone want to point out the recoil for me?

        “It’s all fake, because you never these little ladies someone blow the smoke from the gun’s barrel.”

      • But, PS, if they *don’t*, the vapors from these unheard opinions will just build, and build inside them, until the forces become so great, that these poor, POOR men might simply explode, from the lack of their release….just like a really bad fart–only verbal!
        And they really don’t wanna cause that kind of scene…
        Or mess!!!
        (Or at least, that’s what I assume will happen, since so many of them just have to let it allll out, alllllllthe time!😉😈)
