Quoted @Tracinski

Just realized that 2026 will be the 250th anniversary of the Founding. To create the first society based on individual rights and have it last a quarter of a millennium is an awe-inspiring achievement. But my god what a parade of sackcloth and ashes it's going to be.

Optimistic take: Pfft, we still have six years to turn things around. That's forever! Pessimistic take: LOL dude thinks civilization will still exist in six years https://t.co/l1pFMxIvA8

YOU: This debate between either “lockdowns” or doing nothing is a false dichotomy that- ME: So you reject science and want to murder old people? YOU: No, I actually support the current measures and- ME: Oh I see, you support authoritarian communism and hate liberty.

From Barr's confirmation hearing: “Q: Do you believe a president could lawfully issue a pardon in exchange for the recipient’s promise to not incriminate him?” Barr: “No, that would be a crime.”

Under Barr’s own standard, described to me under oath during his confirmation hearing, the Justice Department should investigate. https://t.co/SpHunJh4ll

@Tracinski All specialized Twitters are slightly worse than general Twitter. All the groupthink and infighting (and there's somehow always both) you get from normal bubbles just gets layered onto the background awfulness of Twitter.

Objectivist Twitter is somehow slightly worse than regular political Twitter.

To put it another way: Sure, Andrew Cuomo is responsible for thousands of nursing home deaths, but mainly because he took so long to get serious about Covid, not because of his nursing-home policies.

The best way to avoid nursing-home Covid-19 outbreaks is to avoid Covid-19 outbreaks, period https://t.co/HSlGDQT6qL

If a bunch of high-profile liberal writers & artists signed a letter in support of democracy, how many on the left would oppose it? (They should actually do this, it will be clarifying).

Do you think we should tell @DonaldJTrumpJr that there’s a typo on his book cover? He means “the Democrats’ defense of the indefensible.” https://t.co/SVSEiThDjn

@AviWoolf @aaronsibarium That was the single most amazingly inconsistent thread ever. It went from _Destroy your capitalist overlords!_ to _Your capitalist overlords can fire you for anything you do and you’ll like it!_ in, like, four tweets.

“I believe that the president has learned from this case...The president has been impeached. That’s a pretty big lesson. I’m voting to acquit...I believe that he will be much more cautious in the future.” - Susan Collins What does @SenatorCollins have to say about Roger Stone? https://t.co/PbLuFrAgOP

Unprecedented, historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president.

@Tracinski Strange new respect for the Hollywood blacklist, apparently.

Another brilliant piece from ⁦@davidfrum⁩ the Republican Party needs a future and this could be the blueprint. David Frum: The Republican Party Needs Liberal Values - The Atlantic https://t.co/8wPWfUB6QF
