Still need a “THAT’S SO METAL” air guitar reaction.
I know, right?

I mean, having a government agency looking into the deaths and ongoing protections of the country's citizens. What are we, communists?!

The Sunday Times (UK) has a write up on Hunter Biden ''s book that, for those who can read it.
From their tweets it looks like a good review. Don't read all the replies if you don't want to get sick.
There's a lot of support there, but also people trying to smear yet more filth.

Yoga continues to stay forbidden on Alabama's schools, because conservatice christians fear that practising it might help spread hinduism. The ban is in action since 1993.


And if you might think now that this is an April's fool joke: no, it's not. This New York Times' article about it is from 13rd of March 2021.

“Guided imagery”? That’s not exercise. It’s not even yoga. I think he’s confusing yoga with something someone told him about transcendental meditation, or something.
I guess t’ai chi is out for them too. ZOMG it’s Chinese!

From the article:
It also says that public schoolteachers cannot say “namaste,” a greeting often used in yoga, or any kind of chant.
For heaven's sake. It's a formal and respectful Hindi greeting, that's all.

And yes, if you're a Hindu, then yoga can be part of a spiritual exercise. Or it can simply be regular physical exercise, same as it is for anyone else.

From the Not Surprised category...

Big restaurant chains are telling investors that a national minimum wage hike wouldn't be a big deal—even as their corporate lobbying groups in Washington fight plans for a $15 minimum wage.

"We share your view that a national discussion on wage issues for working Americans is needed—but the Raise the Wage Act is the wrong bill at the wrong time for our nation's restaurants," the National Restaurant Association wrote in a letter to congressional leaders in February. "The restaurant industry and our workforce will suffer from a fast-tracked wage increase and elimination of the tip credit."
The following day, a top executive at Denny's, one of the association's members, told investors that gradual increases in the minimum wage haven't been a problem for the company at all. In fact, California's law raising the minimum wage to $15 by 2023 has actually been good for the diner chain's business, according to Denny's chief financial officer, Robert Verostek.

This is what extreme right-wing ideology has brought us: A Supreme Court Justice I feel comfortable claiming to be much smarter than.

The US Supreme Court today vacated a 2019 appeals-court ruling that said then-President Donald Trump violated the First Amendment by blocking people on Twitter. The high court declared the case "moot" because Trump is no longer president.

For legal observers, the ruling itself was less interesting than a 12-page concurring opinion filed by Justice Clarence Thomas, who argued that Twitter and similar companies could face some First Amendment restrictions even though they are not government agencies. That's in contrast to the standard view that the First Amendment's free speech clause does not prohibit private companies from restricting speech on their platforms.

Thomas also criticized the Section 230 legal protections given to online platforms and argued that free-speech law shouldn't necessarily prevent lawmakers from regulating those platforms as common carriers.
I agree with Thomas that it's unprecedented to have "control of so much speech in the hands of a few private parties," but the truly effective answer to that is to commandeer Twitter and Facebook and a few other social media platforms and nationalize them, treating them like public utilities. And that would be a difficult thing to do both from a multi-national perspective, and hahaha Republican ideology.

Also of note: The Supreme Court has officially ruled that Donald Trump is NO LONGER PRESIDENT.
