    Okay, let’s talk Hunter Biden’s laptop.

    What is Hunter Biden’s Laptop?

    Short answer: The greatest nothingburger in the history of all American politics. Seriously, it’s nothing. There really, truly is nothing to this story. There is no Hunter Biden laptop..

    Long Answer: The origin story behind this laptop begins when the owner of a computer repair shop in Wilmington Delaware contacted the FBI to inform them that a person claiming themselves to be Hunter Biden dropped off a laptop for…

    [6/10/22 Edit: I just realized it’s impossible to see this if you’re reading on mobile, but in the text where I embedded links attached with sources, much of the time there’s a different link embedded with every individual word, so if you’re on your phone and you’re the type of person who actually checks the sources, just keep that in mind].

    The Suicide Squad


    I think there was a bit of a missed opportunity to further explore how the prison industrial complex is given a free pass to extract often life threatening labor out of prisoners because of the way we culturally dehumanize prisoners. You know, the way we recruit prisoners in the state of California to fight wildfires, while paying them a dollar a day to do it, but there’s no public outcry because as a whole nobody gives a shit about the…
