After feeding a Muslim man nothing but pork sandwiches for days, they are deporting him because even though he had all his paperwork in order and is married to a US citizen, just being picked up inappropriately by ICE gets you sent back now.

    I’m wondering if anyone can pursue legal action against these antichoice nitwits for attempting to practice medicine without a license (e.g. that bag of bullshit, non-existent “procedure” to remove the ectopic pregnancy from the fallopian tube and implant it in the uterus… old white men are trying to pass a law regarding a medical procedure that would be considered malpractice)?

    Also, I’m kinda in love with this economist right now:

    Thanks also for the “how to lie” link. I also hate when people talk about the magic of compound interest without mentioning the anti-magic of inflation. Nevertheless, I have totally fallen for the 4% rule (-of-thumb). I was pretty happy to see that the average real return of the S&P 500 s1871-2018 is 6.64% and not just, like 1.5% or something. I went down a bit of a rabbit hole with that blogger.
