    So Matthew Mconaghuey (and don't pretend like YOU know.how to spell it off.the top.of.your head: I'm obviously a die hard Texan/fan of Texana, and he's one of our finest exports, and even I forget how to spell it) ...

    Anyway, is it just me, or did Mcconaughey just give his first campaign speech?
    And, for the record, I cried my eyes out.
    But he's definitely in full politician mode.

    I'm obviously biased. This is a man who was arrested for playing bongos in Austin, on mushrooms, without any clothes on. He's a fucking state treasure.

    But I THINK he's got the chops! I think he'd run as a liberal Republican, or a conservative Democrat.

    Basically, I think he'd be a "third way" candidate. So. McConaughey 28?


    @allegate , I am SO fucking tired of our symbols being repurposed.

    "Come and Take It" was a big, badass deal during the Texas Revolution, and had absolutely NOTHING to do with any gun rights bullshit.

    Rather, it's an exciting bit of Texas history that assholes have now taken away from us.

    And I mean, same with Don't Tread On Me. (edit: except it's a USA thing).
    I was gonna order a DTOM shirt with the OG flag, from $6 dot com.
    But then I realized it had become some sort of right wing bullshit.

    Hell, I've felt weird celebrating 4th of July these past 6 years.

    Here's how I always remember:

    Mc: as in McDonald's

    Con: as in "con" duh.

    Au: as in the chemical symbol for gold

    Ghey: as "grey" but with an h instead of r.

    huh, how about that.
    Michael Fanone is an American law enforcement analyst and former police officer. He is a CNN on-air contributor. Fanone worked for the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia from 2001 to 2021. He was injured during the 2021 United States Capitol attack. Fanone had joined the United States Capitol Police after the September 11 attacks.


    she really needs to be in a Democratic leadership position soon.

    I love this:
    If banning them outright seems like too extreme a solution to be politically palatable, here's another option: Reclassify semi-automatic rifles as Class 3 firearms.

    That would mean that someone wanting to purchase an AR-15 would have to go through a background check, fingerprinting and review by an official from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives -- a process that takes anywhere from 12 to 16 months. And since Class 3 weapons can't be purchased by anyone younger than 21, it would solve the issue of emotionally unstable 18-year-olds buying them.

    A Class 3 firearm reclassification would also make those who are approved to purchase these weapons subject to an annual check that they are complying with federal regulations regarding secure storage of the firearm, and to confirm their licensing and other paperwork is up to date. All of these hoops and hurdles are sure to reduce the civilian demand for these weapons.

    Uvalde school police chief says he didn't think he was in charge of the mass-shooting response and assumed someone else was

    Arredondo told The Tribune that he did not think he was in charge of the multi-agency response that day, though Department of Public Safety officials had previously described him as the commanding officer at the scene.

    He told The Tribune he took on the role of a first responder instead because he assumed someone else would be in control of the wider response. He did not say who he thought that would be.

    "I didn't issue any orders," Arredondo told The Tribune. "I called for assistance and asked for an extraction tool to open the door."

    Looks like the guy is from Highwood, which is just north of Highland Park.

    Guy is Robert “Bobby” Crimo, a rapper known as Awake the Rapper.

    The vid that was online is gone, YouTube terminated the guy’s account.

    Also, his words make almost no sense at all.

    Surprise, surprise, the suspect is a Trump supporting MAGA douchebag. Lots of pictures of him at Trump rallies and wearing Trump flags like a cape circulating online.

    I saw tons of pics of this kid and didn’t see any of those.

    Only pics of his face with tattoos and shit.


    This is the kid’s Dad:

    Highland Park is like a bastion of liberalism. You can’t get any more liberal than Highland Park. It’s one reason why we like it, here; we’re in an echo chamber.

    His Twitter follows no conservative related accounts. Only liberal like Barack Obama, Kamala Harris and Joe Biden. It is highly possible he unfollowed accounts/followed accounts prior to the attack because he knew people would look.

    This guy seems to be well beyond the "unhinged Trump supporter" though... even if he was into Trump, I don't think this is a fair representation of his influence. This is a sick person.

    He apparently posted a picture of himself draped in a Trump flag with the word "spam" below it, and then showed up at a Trump rally dressed like Where's Waldo... it's like he's trying to message something, but has no idea what it is.

    Yeah.

    Here’s a good Chicago Tribune article:

    https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/...aj4-story.html

    If it’s paywalled, lemme know, I’ll paste it here.

    He’d been planning this for weeks. The Honda Fit was his Mom’s car.

    One of the dead was a 78-yr-old who lived in Mexico for 6 months a year and was handicapped and confined to a wheelchair. He didn’t want to go to the parade, but his family didn’t want to leave him at home alone.


    He also filmed himself at the Waukegan airport when President Biden arrived on a smaller version of Air Force One and left in a motorcade.

    This morning, our Mayor said she used to be this guy’s Cub Scout leader. She said he was a good kid.

    “It’s one of those things where you step back and you say what happened? How did somebody become this angry, this hateful, to then take it out on innocent people who literally were just having a family day out,” she said.

    How do people keep asking this question over and over again when it's so painfully obvious how they've become indoctrinated by the far right into believing all their bullshit conspiracy theories and white supremacist bullshit.

    It's easier than actually doing something.
