    Term limits will do more good than "age limits."

    So would removal of parties AND special interest groups (if you leave one, it doesn't help with total reform).

    Age limits don't save us from the Gaetz, Greenes, & Weiners.

    I will take term limits first, although.

    Without public funded elections, term limits will just mean those with the biggest corporate backing will win.

    Yes of course he will appeal. Any lawyer would. And there is the sentencing phase. So things could still could go bad.

    Super League is imploding, Derek Chauvin was found guilty, and I got my first COVID vaccine.

    Today truly was a good day.

    Guilty on all 3 charges, justice has been served.


    I hope this sends a message to all policemen, I will say this as a big comic book fan, with great power, comes great responsibility.

    We need the police to protect us but we also need to rid society of bad cops abusing their powers, especially to many people of color.

    God's speed George Floyd. May you rest in peace. Amen.

    Just saw that. As Tami said, there is a strong possibility of an appeal and retrial thanks to Maxine Waters but at least it's an uphill battle for the defense now.

    To be honest, I didn't expect that outcome. And yeah, while appeals are to be expected, at least Chauvin didn't get off scot free as I feared he might.

    What did Maxine Waters do that was so terrible? Wasn't the jury sequestered when she spoke out? Did they even hear what she said?

    Don't get me started on Waters! That fucking hag potentially gave Chauvin's lawyers an opening with her horribly misguided, ill-timed and stupid as hell comments.

    The judge himself said that what she said could create the circumstances for the whole trial being thrown out and a retrial. She called for more aggressive protests if Chauvin was found innocent. Uner the circumstances, that's equivalent to the Trump garbage that could only mean violent. Anyway, the Judge in the trial was the one who said it while refusing to go as far as to call a mistrial.

    I don't know why but I'm surprised you agree with me on that.

    Worse, it caused people like Nancy Pelosi to claim it was not a call for violence which immediately caused Conservatives to point out that the Dems are doing the same thing they say the Republicans did when, in both cases, it was blatantly an incitation to violence.
