Appeals could go on for a long time. The conviction might be overturned. But if he's put in with the general population in prison, he might wish somebody would just go ahead and put a knee on his neck.
Nelson's defense strategy, and he still can't pronounce "Fentanyl." Duh.
great head of hair, studio tan,
if I were hitching in the Everglades
and you pulled up, Id be afraid.
I wouldnt climb into your minivan,
your swampmobile, O Florida man.
Id wait for a ride with an honest trucker.
Anyone but you, you sleazy fucker.

national reaction against Coke, Delta, et. al. is having an effect.
We are strongly opposed to this bill and others like it. As a Texas-based business, we must stand up for the rights of our team members and customers who call Texas home, and honor the sacrifices made by generations of Americans to protect and expand the right to vote, the Fort Worth-based airline [American Airlines] said in a statement. Michael Dell, founder and CEO of the Texas-based Dell Technologies, also came out against the bill, tweeting: Free, fair, equitable access to voting is the foundation of American democracy. Those rightsespecially for women, communities of colorhave been hard-earned.
The article goes on to say that the reactions of other Texas businesses (SW Airlines, AT&T) is more tepid. And there's this "howler" from Lt. Gov. Patrick.

This is a moving article, apt at any time in our country. In 1999, Time Magazine named "Strange Fruit" song of the century. [Edit: My apologies for forgetting the link the first time.]
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Black bodies swingin' in the Southern breeze
Strange fruit hangin' from the poplar trees
The haunting delivery by Holiday would forever be engraved on the souls of those who heard it.
Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the tree to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop
If Sen. Warnock's full speech has been posted already, my apologies. If not, it's a must-see.
And this time the repug SOB is facing felony charges.
I'm finding Tom Hartmann very educational reading every day. So thanks to the DU member who posted something from his site a few days ago.
This time, he further examines the war Reagan waged on the middle class, using tax law. For example, we're being taxed twice on some "income" and being taxed on tips, which aren't income at all.
Hartmann urges a return to pre-Reagan tax policy.
"Fox News isnt slated news. Its not even fake news. Its simply not news. It is a Trump-flavored circus show that chased NewsMax down the rabbit hole and, unfortunately, caught it.
"On a casual inspection, that would seem to be working out fine for Fox News. After all, it has averaged around 1.3 million viewers since Biden moved in, compared to 1.1 million at MSNBC, and 0.9 million at Americas home for inconsistency, CNN. But thats not really the comparison Fox News deserves. After all, over 10 million people watched each episode of Bull last year, and at least that show tells you what youre getting, right there in the title"
The article centers on Faux running a box with Talker Snarson commenteng on President Biden's speech. Needless to say, I didn't watch it. But it sounds like a new low.
