In a Better US

This is the way the police should treat drunk belligerent assholes--even ones that get a bit violent.  Not taze them, slam them into the ground, kneel on them making breathing difficult.  Just stay calm, laugh rather than getting angry.  (And yes, there's at least one racist asshole in the comments claiming cops in the US can't do this because of black people and desegregation.)

I Hope This Conclusion is Right

This is a great tear-down of Timmy's play time at the Fed and Treasury.  It ends rather optimistically and I really hope that is correct.  It does seem that Democrats are moving away from corruption (while the GOP is ready to hop in and scoop up the leavings).  Still, one Senator Elizabeth Warren does not a movement make. The Democratic party (and, frankly, the US) needs more of her.
