Not a lot of details in the bipartisan 10 senator infrastructure bill. No new taxes, about $1.2T (although Wapo is saying $1T). Nice middle ground number. Looking forward to what's in the bill, guessing some of the more pseudo infrastructure stuff has been dropped.

I appreciate the effort and this will give Biden a relatively out for bipartisanship.

It is disappointing that they couldn't agree on at least a small bump in corporate tax, not sure Biden is going to be too keen on that.

If the rapture had been presented like this in Sunday school I might still go to church.

And she's apparently a supporter of the proposed bill judging by the writing on her shirt.

Also, Dr. Tenpenny could not be more perfectly named if one tried. And of course she's monetizing hedr patriotic resistance to tyranee:

My wife's doctor is also a bit crazy like that, maybe not quite as much. That COVID is taking a much higher toll on mental health than physical, since none of her patients have actually gotten COVID. (spoiler alert: people don't make an appointment 3 weeks out to see their family doctor if they can't breathe and have COVID). And she's going to stop wearing a mask because she's done with it. I can't believe that doctors think like that.

Netanyahu officially gone as Israel's leader. Who knows how long that will last as crazy as Israeli politics seems. I'm also concerned that the guy replacing him for 2 years decides he's going to stay longer and put the guy who is supposed to replace him in jail.

There's only one endorsement that matters, Trump.

NEW NC Senate GOP primary poll (Ted Budd internal)

Pat McCrory - 45%
Ted Budd - 19%
Mark Walker - 12%

That changes to

McCrory - 27%
Bud - 46%
Walker - 8%

after being told Budd was endorsed by Trump.

McCrory is the former governor, so you figure a lot of that 45% was soft and based on nothing more than name recognition.

But that's still a pretty stark change.

With the whole G7 conference and the Russia Summit. One thing I hope Biden really goes after is ransomware and the people behind it. We really need extradition treaties or something to help bring these guys to justice. Any country knowingly sheltering them should be boycotted.

My company has had several of our customers hacked and even one of our suppliers. Our operations have not been affected but it feels like a matter of when and not if.

Dems pass HR1 in the House, GOP and Manchin say no.

Manchin releases a plan that cuts some of HR1 and adds nationwide voter ID.

Stacey Abrams says, sounds good.

GOP says no because it's a Stacey Abrams plan.

Can't wait for these dumbasses to blame the AOC or whoever for losing the Senate and House in a couple years.

Joe Manchin is going to bring back bipartisan politics. You just have to be patient.

As a CISO at a large global industrial manufacturer I would love that to happen. But am not holding my breath.

I didn't realize Netanyahu is still living in the PM's residence and has refused to leave.

In Ohio they can now take away your SNAP benefits if you have more than $2,250 in checking and savings or if you drive a vehicle worth more than $4,650.

The cost in people & resources necessary to constantly track that kind of minutiae can not possibly be worth the 'savings', right? Practically goes without saying that those efforts would obviously be spent on regulations & oversight for corporations and/or the super wealthy, rather than the super poor.
