Link Love

#2 has been stuck in various airports this week.

There’s a hate loving politician in Maine who is no longer running unopposed.  Donate to Eryn Gilchrist, his opponent, here.

Domestic terrorists kill black victims in Austin.

NYTimes Conservative columnists get paid a lot to blather on about the same thing over and over again.  Also, they still don’t understand free speech.  Not that that matters because it’s easier to write something stupid for lots of money than to actually do research and know things.

A whole thread of pictures of teens in Boise, Idaho protesting.

Boston students protest in the snow on a snow day.

This post is 8 years old and still true.

    Apparently, donating to Eryn Gilchrist is difficult or impossible, because she’s running as a “Clean Election candidate. Under state law, that means she must gather at least 60 qualifying contributions of $5 to qualify for the ballot. It also allows her to collect up to $1,000 in seed money. The rest of her campaign expenses will be publicly funded.” See https://tinyurl.com/ybjpr8tx . Which is a bit aggravating, because I’d love to support her campaign, but maybe there will be other ways, even remotely (and it’s certainly not to say we shouldn’t support those local Democrats — just a bit removed from her actual campaign…)

      Irritating. When I put the link up, she’d just announced. Also, since then, the Republican candidate who said those awful things has dropped out and been replaced by a different Republican, at least according to huffington post.

        Yes. Seeing her opponent drop out is delightful, and — eh. I mean, yes, I’d like to support her campaign and may try to find other ways to do so (writing postcards?), but public funding for elections is a good thing, too, so … (yes, OK, I’m oversimplifying on the public funding as it’s not happening in a vaccuum, but it’s not something I’m going to complain about).

    The real benefit of coffee is the reduction in the murder rate.
