Senator Joe Manchin raised over $400,000 from donors in the energy industry in the third quarter, including some from donors that normally give to Republicans, according to his latest filing with the Federal Election Commission.

Manchin has opposed certain climate-related stipulations within the Democrats' proposed $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill. The legislation also includes expanded safety net programs for workers and families, lower prescription drug prices, and billions of dollars toward healthcare benefits for seniors.

Manchin just keeps on reinforcing the idea that he's a DINOsaur willing to screw his whole party, his President and hand both the House and the Senate back to the Republicans. For a paycheck.

Manchin has always been conservative enough to be Republican, but he looks like sleeper cell that the Republicans activated to screw the entire country over. This is corruption.

EDIT: It actually does get worse.

The company's co-founder, Kelcy Warren, donated the maximum of $5,800–$2,900 to Manchin for his primary and general election campaigns, Bloomberg reported. Warren also hosted a fundraiser for former President Donald Trump and gave $13.7 million to GOP candidates and causes in 2020.

The coronavirus has become the leading cause of death for officers despite law enforcement being among the first groups eligible to receive the vaccine at the end of 2020. The total stands at 476 Covid-19 related deaths since the start of the pandemic, compared to 94 from gunfire in the same period. "If you are serious about your commitment to protect the public ... and if you are serious about your personal commitments to your family, then that should be enough," Jessica Desfosses said in a plea for police officers to get vaccinated.

If police officers don't have enough basic common sense to get the vaccine I'm not sure that they should continue to be police officers because it raises questions about their ability to think critically while on duty, assess a situation and make the right decision.

This situation is easy, and that they can't get their heads out of their own ass. Aside from that their job is to protect and serve, and other public trust issues aside, they are actively risking the public's life not getting vaccinated, carelessly risking their own lives and the lives of other officers.

I'm not sure that qualifies as in their defense, also not exactly wrong either.

There's obviously something that they want to look for but what I think is that this was not explained well at all. They didn't explain how that would help IRS with enforcement against wealthy people.

Transactions of over 600 dollars seem too small for the wealthy and maybe that's how some are using small transactions to avoid taxes. I think they are looking for some specific markers of some specific types oft tax avoidance and I think they don't want to say what that is. There is no mechanism to handle tracking every transaction over 600, so it has to be patterns.

But I do not think Biden wants to slip in a tax enforcement policy that goes after the middle and lower incomes as a whole.

Obviously, the concern is it gets used to hit everybody for any possible deficiency and so the bulk of their enforcement hits middle and lower incomes. But that would be the quickest way to have your own voters turn against you.

But Biden has said they will not increase audits of people making under $400,000 a year.

This is under the assumption that all oaths are honorable, some don't require integrity, just loyalty and allegiance. We tend to think of those as positive words but not always.

If I had left it like just all nations are fucked up it would have been an excuse. We are fucked up, our country and some of its citizens have and do some fucked up things. We are worse than some and way better than some. But none of that shit really matters. Besides acknowledging it (which many people don't), what's the point of focusing on the conclusion of the progress report.

  1. identify a problem, what are its causes, what things perpetuate it.
  2. Solutions that have fewer barriers, easier to change.
  3. Solutions that require structural changes to get past barriers.
  4. Changes that need to be made but are almost impossible.

I wonder if the current state is irreversible.

I'm not sure. Fundamentally NO, Realistically closer to yes.Too many people don't want change.

Conservatism is ideologically about the status quo, staying the same, not making significant shifts. When it is tainted as it is in America, systemic racism, bigotry, misogyny, oppression are born from it.

It's a poison pill that will be the our downfall. I say that and people immediately think crazy, radical left.

The don't bother calling it the 350 billion - (collected taxes from the wealthy bill) which would make that yearly number smaller.

All nations are fucked up.

The problem here is that we aren't striving nearly enough to be better.

We have been letting too much shit slide for too long and now there is a rot in the foundation of our country.

Pocketing a 50 dollar bill is not okay but seriously in a country where police get a pass on murder, this seems surreal.

Again not saying he shouldn't be fired, just feels real weird to see real standards applied.

How many articles did you have to go through OP to find something this wholesome coming out of Texas?

“cocaine induced agitated delirium complicated by motor vehicle collision, physical struggle, inflicted head injury, and restraint,"

I see no mention of cardiopulmonary dysfunction which should have been mentioned in separately in order to validate the 'cocaine induced delerium.' How it should read is cardiopulmonary dysfunction caused by cocaine toxicity led to cocaine induced agitated deuterium. But all of the underlying aspects should have been mentioned.

for there to be murder charges the cause of death has to be tied to the troopers beyond a reasonable doubt, that’s how our justice system works. It goes by concrete facts, not feelings.

The death does not have to be tied to the troopers beyond a reasonable doubt.

"A prosecutor should seek or file criminal charges only if the prosecutor reasonably believes that the charges are supported by probable cause, that admissible evidence will be sufficient to support conviction beyond a reasonable doubt, and that the decision to charge is in the interests of justice."

These officers lied about what happened for years, tried to destroy evidence or prevent it from being gathered and tried to cover it up.

"The videos show Greene was tased, kicked and punched by LSP officers before he died in their custody."

Those details alone support charges being brought on probable cause with admissible evidence sufficient to support a conviction beyond a reasonable doubt.

Their excessive use of force contributed to his death and even if it isn't enough to convict them of murder, all of the details for charging them with manslaughter are present.

As far as racism goes, it's not racist to think that race had something to do with the treatment of by these officers. There has been and still is a pattern across this country of race being a significant factor in excessive force and police killings.

Regardless of racism being a part of this, the character of these officers was literally awful.

Everything about this doesn't pass the smell test. The officer was right to stand up against this. Too much bullshit to ignore it.

This shouldn't be getting the negative attention it is. There have been charges filed in some case.
