White evangelicals with dangerous theology about adoption (among other concerning ideologies) once again circling international disaster like vultures, picking off children in plain sight. Sickening.
This story gets more hair-raising and disturbing. He apparently referred to some children as his "prospective daughters," and refused to let Polish doctors see any of the children. Shea himself has already begin the adoption process for 2 of the orphans. https://t.co/UeS0qU1QwR

Two good reads today: — on why America can’t get anything done anymore — on why actually yes it can fullstackeconomics.com/why-america-ca… noahpinion.substack.com/p/us-state-cap…
There are definitely rich and powerful people in this story displaying arrogance and decadence but I don't think it's the ones this person thinks they are. (Hint: rich and powerful people don't live in dorm-style apartments.)
This is the kind of blatant arrogance, decadence, and contempt by the rich & powerful--and their handmaiden politicians (@Scott_Wiener) that historically have caused revolutions. Ugly smug flaunting of power and politicians' grimy obeisance. @AOC https://t.co/Kix9qQXJHi

It's unfortunate that we got Trump instead of Arnold as our celebrity president.
I love the Russian people. That is why I have to tell you the truth. Please watch and share. https://t.co/6gyVRhgpFV
The Chicago bears accidentally making an inflammatory, sectarian statement about Irish politics is maybe the funniest NFL team post since the Raiders Derek Chauvin post.
Bosnia and Herzegovina was party of Yugoslavia, which was never part of the USSR or the Warsaw Pact. This is sabre-rattling beyond the borders of the former Russian empire. (The political fig-leaf of "it used to be ours" doesn't apply here. Blatant aggressive encroachment.)
BREAKING: Putin’s regime threatens the nation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, saying that if they choose to join NATO they should expect Russia’s “response” to be just like the Ukraine invasion. RT IF YOU THINK THEY SHOULD JOIN NATO BEFORE PUTIN CAN ATTACK!

Cool new report from on NJ + VA results: Turnout shifts were large, but persuasion shifts were much larger! Keeping this in mind next time I worry I'm being too finicky in the wording of a message test. civisanalytics.com/blog/2021-va-n…
Ahh, another degrowther op-ed by someone who thinks economic growth is defined as growing use of natural resources. 🙄
Editorial: Are there limits to economic growth? It’s time to call time on a 50-year argument https://t.co/u6x3kTofek
Just hard-core WTO fans here? https://t.co/SaiQ762yKF

I think one thing that people unfamiliar with the region might not have picked up on is just how diverse in class terms the Ukrainian resistance is. Imagine images of U.S. resistance where both the rednecks and the hipsters are carrying anti-tank weapons.
