The Atlanta Hammers as a new Braves name is catching on Twitter and I don't know if I'm feeling it yet.

Would almost prefers Hanks for the meme value :ninja:

No no no no!!  

Think through this.  If they are the Atlanta Hammers, then people can wave towels in the air to show support.  They can be called “Hammer Hankies”.   

This must happen.

The lawyer is suing to have the courts dissolve Congress AND the Executive Branch, install “Stewards” for each that will govern the country, prohibit Mike Pence and Democratic members of Congress from holding any office, and basically install Trump as a dictator.  Oh, and he wants the court to ban the FBI from arresting him (the lawyer filing the motion).

And, no joke, he cited in the court motion his apparent inspiration...The Lord of the Rings.

K-Pop Stans Hijack GOP Congresswoman’s #ImpeachBidenNow Hashtag

Greene probably assumed her hashtag would attract a groundswell of support — and it did, just not in the way she expected.

By Friday morning, there were more than 100,000 tweets using the hashtag, and the vast majority were sent by K-pop fans sharing photos of their favorite artists, rather than anti-Biden messages.

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/impeach-biden-now-hashtag-kpop-stans_n_600b0a87c5b6f401aea4121a

the dumbest thing is that while they are subverting the trending feature's intent, they are also amplifying the hashtag itself. so the meme still gets into people's head "impeach biden" even if most of the posts are about k pop artists.

This would be glorious...

Some people pardoned by Trump can still be tried, an ex-Mueller prosecutor argues.

Mr. Weissmann argued on Wednesday that the wording of Mr. Trump’s pre-Christmas pardons was “oddly” drafted. The pardons narrowly covered the recipients’ convictions — rather than broadly relieving them of all potential liability for their actions.

Many of the recipients could be charged with more crimes than those for which they were convicted, he said.

For example, he noted, Mr. Manafort admitted as part of a plea deal over reduced charges that he was guilty of other crimes for which he was never convicted. They included 10 counts of financial crimes over which a jury in a Virginia trial had hung, and others offenses like witness tampering that had been laid out in an indictment in a District of Columbia case.

It would be “unusually simple” to bring new charges against him, Mr. Weissmann argued, in part because prosecutors could use Mr. Manafort’s sworn admissions of his guilt as evidence.

Mr. Weissmann observed that other pardons Mr. Trump granted just before Christmas, including to his longtime informal adviser and friend Roger J. Stone Jr., and to Philip Esformes — “the single largest health care fraudster in history” — were similarly narrow. (The texts of the pardons Mr. Trump issued on his last full day in office are not yet public.)

No need to worry guys, the need isn't evident!

"We just passed $900 billion worth of assistance; why we would have a package that big now? Maybe a couple of months from now the needs will be evident and we will need to do something significant. But I'm not seeing it right now," she told Business Insider.

Admittedly Senate procedural rules are not my specialization, but I don’t understand why Dems can’t eliminate the filibuster on the floor and then pass a “power sharing agreement” of their choosing via majority vote with Kamala Harris breaking the tie.  

The irony is that the holdup on the negotiations now is the filibuster.  And the filibuster is the reason they require a power-sharing agreement...any agreement now is subject to the filibuster.  So eliminate the filibuster and then pass it via majority vote.  Take care of two problems at the same time.

they can, they just have to get every democrat on board.
