Yeah, some of them, if not a lot, will be penalized, due process and all.
We can do something. Keep putting out the truth and encouraging people to vote to get the people in government who support this out of power and participating in demanding change. It's stuff the main people here post about almost every single day.
They think they can successfully suppress the vote of the rest of us. We have to continue to defend democracy and make sure we stop them by staying on top of issues in our states and joining efforts to protect and expand the vote.
I needed a little #heroesresist in my day. Thankful you all are still here. The stinkweed on top of the dungheap my be golfing in Florida, but the root cause Republicans are still power grabbing nationwide. The danger from their 50 year methodical gambit is far from over.
Thanks for being a part of us, my friend.

Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are forging ahead with a backup plan after the Senate parliamentarian ruled out the minimum wage:
They're only remorseful because they've been caught and are being held to account for their actions. Absent that, they'd still be out there, encouraging the violent overthrow of our legitimate government. Throw the book at them.
Capitol riot defendants facing jail have regrets. Judges aren’t buying it:
Fantastic news. Puts teeth into rejoining the Paris Agreement. Use of coal will die of its own unecomonic weght.
If we were to have the industry rather than society pay for the actual costs associated with the damage caused by fossil fuels, the whole enterprise would have ended in a heartbeat, decades ago. This is an excellent, and ridiculously overdue, first step.
