My grandpa had 7 kids, worked as a plasterer through the 60s then spent a good chunk of the 70s unemployed before getting a job at the steel mill. He absolutely lived by “if it’s yellow let it mellow; if it’s brown flush it down” to keep the water bill low. When he died he had north of $100,000 in stocks and bonds and Read more

I HATE the Tiny Homes trend. How is living in a trailer a new thing? Bitch trailers have been around for forever. They have fucking parks of them.

I feel like it can only count as hypocrisy if you think his and her faults are similarly weighted. Like, yeah, I wish she hadn’t been dumb enough to think using a private email server wouldn’t bite her in the ass, but no I don’t think that’s anywhere near as bad as anything Trump did.

She’s only facing jail because she refused to accept a plea. They didn’t set out to throw the book at her, that’s why they offered pleas to everyone.

In what world is portraying women and people of color (always) in a particular way not real? I’m sorry are the show writers and directors and producers also fake? How deep does this go? Am I even real? Is my CAT real?!?!

While I’m heartbroken that my tip about the official bills bar in DC stating on their website that they’re closed on Sundays didn’t make it on to billspin, this is still some good billspin content. Read more

Except did you click the link and read how US Soccer plans on the women’s team making more money than the men’s team and they're still being paid four times less?

Sure. It’s within her right to kneel. It’s in his right to be a disingenuous dick. It’s in our right to call him out on it. All in the house that Jack built.

I wish that social media person the best of luck in their search for a job and I hope they find one with a better company that deserves them.

True. Although to be completely honest, I’m not completely against mandatory minimums.

Know. But my source citing would be legislative history across the past 50+ years across the 50 states. No offense, but too much effort for an internet comment.

That’s ~true~. Which is to say it’s true in the way we speak about it but it’s not true in the way it’s treated in law. Force would be an element separate from the penetration. Which of course is why we’ve ended up with statutes that require an element of violence (other than the penetration, eg hitting, choking, Read more

Prosecutors have a wide degree of discretion in choosing how to charge defendants with or without mandatory minimums on the table. I don’t understand how mandatory minimums increase their discretion. Read more

I agree there’s valid reasons to oppose mandatory minimum sentences in general but I highly doubt your possibility. I made a longer comment later in this thread but this sentencing discrepancy really tracks the way laws have evolved (or not) with our evolved understanding of rape.
