Despite numerous credulous media accounts that Mr. Ornato would testify that Cassidy Hutchinson's 1/6 testimony was false (because he didn't tell her that FPOTUS lunged at the neck of his driver), Mr. Ornato never provided that testimony. Today, he resigned from Secret Service.
News: US Secret Service Assistant Director Tony Ornato left the agency Monday, sources tell @jamiegangel & @WhitneyWReports. This is a significant departure coming 2 months after Cassidy Hutchinson's explosive testimony before 1/6 committee. https://t.co/8Wzicg5DBl

Don't trust the GDP reports of autocratic countries? This paper compares growth in city lights to claims of economic growth, and it appears that autocratic regimes over-exaggerate yearly GDP growth by a huge 35%! (& the GDP gap between 🇮🇳 & 🇨🇳 is smaller than official estimates)
I feel like people who think there's something uniquely inefficient about government bureaucracies has never had to deal with a private-sector bureaucracy.
You don’t see any windmills in Westeros because the dragons make any promises regarding the rule of law inherently non-credible.
conservatives be like “it’s Biden’s fault that I have to spend so much money on gas” nah, you chose to buy a pickup truck that gets 17mpg and live 81 miles from the office, take some personal responsibility
Literally drove 421 miles twice this weekend. My office is 81 miles one way and if traffic is bad can take more than 2 hours to get there. I have 3 trips this week that’ll be about 300 miles driving. Electric cars aren’t practical right now. https://t.co/oyWnI0Zl4f

Thinking of the HIV patients who paid more than they should have for treatment to bring you this message
I didn’t realize the upcoming Harry Potter game was about crushing what is basically a civil rights movement of enslaved/oppressed/segregated goblins, an anti-semitic stereotype. How did this make it off a bar napkin, never mind to production?
