We must restore our democracy so that a radical minority can no longer drown out the will of the people.
✅ Expand the Supreme Court to rebalance it.
✅ End the filibuster to codify Roe.
✅ Fix the Electoral College so popular-vote losers like Trump can’t stack the courts again.

This mirrors my experience with outsourcing software development.

Institutional knowledge and long term working relationships are key. Both take years to develop.

this article is really worth your time palladiummag.com/2022/06/09/wh

Today is @ThurgoodCat’s 7th gotcha day.

He’s celebrating like a cat.

So… is Thomas going to vote to end Loving v. Virginia?
RT @ewarren
Clarence Thomas made it clear: right-wing extremists aren’t stopping at abortion. They’re coming after marriage equality, contraception, & anyone who doesn't live & look like their idea of the ideal American. But the Supreme Court won’t get the last word—the American people will.

With clarity, brilliance, and receipts, my personal hero and dear friend @michelebgoodwin powerfully shows why the Constitution protects reproductive justice contrary to Alito’s faux, deceptive history. nytimes.com/2022/06/26/opinion

And if you are a lawmaker who, in the time between the leak & ruling, spent more manpower on a fundraising plan than a policy response, then I highly recommend rethinking your priorities.

Our job right now is to protect people. Doing so will drive the vote more than browbeating.

Here’s the sad thing for me as a lawyer. I can never again view the Court as an institution for reasoned, independent, apolitical — at least quietly apolitical— judgment. Today the veil was ripped away, and willingly. Brazenly.

Generally, I think software/data engineers and businesses have been far too blithe about the risks of collecting lots of data. This should be a wake-up call. When data becomes potentially incriminating, we must find a way of not collecting or not storing it in the first place.

RT @martinkl
When users enter sensitive data into an app (eg. period trackers) and it’s stored unencrypted in the cloud, the app developer looks increasingly irresponsible. Local-only or local-first software with p2p data sync and/or end-to-end encryption needs to become the default. twitter.com/mattblaze/status/1

AOC is right: Democrats need to start offering a specific plan for how they plan to get majorities in the Congress; where they need them and by what margins. No more vague platitudes, God Bless America songs and donation boxes linked below.

RT @JoyceWhiteVance
Remember how there were DHS & FBI bulletins about the risk of violence when Roe was reversed? Turns out it's not the peaceful pro-choice protestors law enforcement needed to be worried about. Same blind spot as before. twitter.com/jenrourke29/status

RT @Sabina_Matos
@JenRourke29 Jennifer, I am beyond words that this happened. Women and women of color running for office are too often harassed and attacked simply for standing up for other women and women of color. We cannot stand for attacks like this. We won’t give up.

Excellent thread 👇🏽

If the Dems follow @AoC’s playbook, they get my support
Here’s how Dems can + must do more than wait for an election.

Let’s start w/ why:

- 7 of the 9 justices were appointed by a party that hasn’t won a popular vote more than once in 30 years

- 1 of those seats was stolen

- Several lied to Congress to secure their appointment…

Charge him. Prosecute hard.

People that are willing to break the law and have no self control have no position in office, and yet, many of them run for office and succeed. twitter.com/billbartholomew/st
