Good morefternoon, all - anything happening?

It appears a police officer has also died as a result of Wednesday's "events".

The Journey of Ashli Babbitt


It's quite disturbing where the lies and psychological manipulation employed by Trump's backers has led. The woman who was shot was one of the Qanon believers. She thought she was saving America from a paedophile conspiracy. Her journey from Obama voter, through Hilary Clinton "pizzagate" credulity to full-fledged belief that the entire Democratic Party are a paedophile cabal is the same as I have been hearing related by my hairdresser whose sister lives in New York. If I hadn't heard this stuff first hand I probably wouldn't believe a regular person could be sucked in by such batshit crazy stuff but the reality is that the people behind it really know what they're doing and after Trump's gone they're still going to be out there, manipulating people through social media to who knows what ends, and that isn't a very comforting thought.

Something has to be done about sites like QAnon, though that is easier to say than actually do.

Good morning.

I see Lozza Fox is going for the crank vote - even Betty De Vos has resigned - but no, nothing to do with Trump at all...

Wonder how many cases - and even deaths - there might be because the government made schools open for a day this week?

A Senate GOP aide told me that many Senate Republicans now face a situation where the QAnon people threaten them for not reelecting Trump while some people on the opposite end of the political spectrum are also making threats saying they enabled him for four years.

After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.

I'm dissatisfied with our economic system. It's inefficient and people suffer having to accommodate it.

I highly recommend reading The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin.
