tf is Matt Damon doing hawking crypto on the teevee. theyre just going to keep fucking this chicken until we all have no choice huh

VC and IPO cash can buy a lot of Damon. "Fortune favors the brave" is basically going straight after the 'here, hold my beer and watch this' crowd.

Few things are more cringe-inducing than talking to a good friend you haven’t talked to for a while and hearing them say “hey, you into bitcoin?”

Twitter has nuked Marjorie Taylor Greene's personal account, which was the one she was using to spread anti-vax propaganda, racism, and all the other things she stands for. Her "official" account, RepMTG, still exists but it's pretty anodyne.

“hey, you into bitcoin?”

In re the origin of this month's thread title, it's interesting to have a candidate for high office specifically endorsing bitcoin when the crypto marketplace abounds with choices. His opponents should brand him as "anti-competition, anti-capitalism and anti-American".

The problem is, even if he does it, does that become the trigger for Manchin to switch parties, and now we have GOP majority and no filibuster? Like, that could happen by the end of the month.

I don't think Manchin is interested in changing parties, but who knows

Karl is correct. Trying to shame J6ers will move exactly zero votes. The people who already like those candidates will still like those candidates. Perhaps even more! But they still only get to vote once.

The people who already hate those candidates will still hate those candidates. Perhaps even more! But they still only get to vote once.

how do only 10 percent of Democratic voters have unfavorable views of the party? I've voted for Democrats my whole life and always had an unfavorable view of the party. (Tho I don't consider myself "a Democrat," maybe that makes a difference in surveys like this.)

I looked at the crosstabs, and the most significant gap (within Democratic voters) is among age groups: Democratic voters 65 and older approve of the party 90%-4%, while those between 18 and 34 approve 69%-18%.

In other Crenshaw news, a guy I went to high school with (nice fellow then, religious, dabbled w/the Promise Keepers, sang a Three Doors Down song at the talent show & who is now an anti-vaxxer pushing the big lie) is running as Republican for Congress, and thanks to gerrymandered redistricting, has been moved from running for an open seat in a hard R district (wherein the primary <is> the election) to having to primary Crenshaw, who had already declined to endorse him in that other race.
