Corporations are people… except when those people need to go to jail.

I didn’t say it was, but it’s adjacent, and based on the vote % it seems like most people don’t have an issue with a meme about IT.

In a major win for the DOJ Boeing has agreed to a plea deal to avoid a criminal trial. As part of the deal Boeing agreed to a slap on the wrist after which they will be legally required to admit to being very naughty before they can resume committing crimes.

The New Jersey Attorney General has decided on Friday not to renew two liquor licenses at former President Donald Trump’s New Jersey golf clubs following his conviction on all 34 felony counts in his criminal hush money trial.

“The New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) has an obligation to maintain integrity in the alcoholic beverage industry in the state,” said a spokesperson with the New Jersey Attorney General(NJAG).

There’s nothing wrong with the headline and the subheadline does not walk anything back. The liquor licenses were not renewed, and a final hearing is scheduled for July. Turns out, the problem with journalism in the 2020s is that you just need to read the article. Go figure…

As I said:

It sucks that this is where we’re at as a country… but “old guy” vs. “old guy who wants a fascist dictatorship” should not be a fucking struggle for voters.

He’s old, it was his bedtime and instead we asked him to go to a debate. He did just fine, and there was nothing incoherent about it.

Seriously. Unlike Trump, who spent his entire Presidency ranting on Twitter all night and golfing all day… Biden probably goes to bed early both because he’s old and because he spends his days actually doing his job. The debate performance was disappointing, I get it. But the media acting like he’s being Weekend at Bernie’s Dianne Feinstein’d around D.C. is ridiculous. It sucks that this is where we’re at as a country… but “old guy” vs. “old guy who wants a fascist dictatorship” should not be a fucking struggle for voters.
