Hitting a moving train with artillery is pretty impressive.
⚡️ High-precision HIMARS strike destroyed a train of more than 40 cars that arrived from Crimea carrying troops, equipment and ammunition to Kherson region. The train's cargo will never kill anyone. Glory to Ukraine!🇺🇦

Fire Depts do this all over US with crosswalks, bike lanes, lane reductions etc. Its not a demonstrable risk thats why these are advisories, not orders. If it was a risk the marshall would order you to take it down. They ask you cause the chief just wants to drive everywhere
SFFD emailed us last Thursday, via the SFMTA, and asked us to move all community signs and plants from #PageSlowStreet. While we know this will be a detriment to the safety of those who use #PSS, we're complying, and looking for folks to adopt/reuse current signs. We hope to 1/4

LOL at your percentage changes. Here's a graph of the absolute numbers. (source: mercatus.org/system/files/h…) Call me "dishonest", will you?
That's EXTREMLY dishonest @Noahpinion ...and ur smart enough to know it. The # of teachers and their salaries are...fairly flat while the number of students is slowly rising. The spending increase is almost entirely due ADDING NEW ADMINSTRATIVE STAFF, not salary increases. https://t.co/OykLheGY9o https://t.co/7J1M0lR30B

You might call them, oh I don’t know, “death panels.” https://t.co/4DRUpqw2Ti
In red states, hospital ethics committees now decide when pregnant patients are close enough to death to justify an abortion. Here's how these panels make life-or-death judgments where abortion is illegal under all but the most dire circumstances. https://t.co/jzcNOPv03Y @Slate

This is fascism, and it's important you be able to recognize the imagery. Nostalgia for a simple past - with a focus on religion and family and children - brought back by genocide. That's fascism
