IDK about election interference in July, when neither major party has any ground game in the election. You can't interfere with people knocking on doors and putting out yard signs if almost nobody is doing that. We will see how this pans out as time goes on, though.

I do worry about escalation tonight, though. When I've participated in protests and watched live streams of them, the police always seem to be the most viscous at the end of a demonstration. It's like a climax at the end of a performance, put on by psychopaths. They want to kettle and brutalize demonstrators on their way home, not when the demonstration is at full strength on the steps of a capitol building, with old media cameras everywhere. That makes me worry that the feds will try to inflict maximum damage on their way out, between today and tomorrow, when they are supposed to leave. Watch the streams tonight for things that might 'slip under the radar' of the big media outlets.
Actually you can interfere now by interfering with the postal system.

I love the protests so much.

I get so upset, so angry, so enraged, so depressed at the constant deluge of outrages I just don’t know what to do. But then I see the protests on Twitter and it gives me so much hope. The tears come and the rage melts away.

Y'all are not going to like this, and the only reason I'm posting it here is that his thread has undergone three different name changes.

Two men die in separate shootings in Minneapolis

Violent crime as in murder, rape are up 95% from last year. I don''t think I need to tell you that much of this is on my back doorstep.Meanwhile that City Council that called for not just defunding but removal of the police force is using taxpayer dollars for their own personal 24 hour around the clock security.

Those of us left here are dealing with police that don't wanna do a single thing except pick up dead bodies and a city council that protects themselves, but doesn't give a fuck about the rest of us. Yeah, I mean that.

Can we get some adults in the room, stat? Thank you.
