At @Howls suggestion, this is a separate thread to discuss the nefarious, unpatriotic and treacherous #MoscowMitch the Russian asset.

Here he is being heckled in his home state of Kentucky...

This came across my FB feed.  I heard he hates the name - so I'm all for it!

Karma's a bitch.

Mitch McConnell fractures shoulder after falling at Kentucky home

Quote

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has fractured his shoulder after falling at his Kentucky home, his spokesperson said in a statement Sunday. The 77-year-old McConnell has been treated and released from the hospital and is working from his home in Louisville.

The big picture: The injury comes as a number of Democrats and some Republicans have called upon McConnell to cancel the Senate's August recess so that lawmakers can pass gun control legislation in the aftermath of two deadly mass shootings this weekend. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded on Sunday that Senate Republicans put an end to to their "outrageous obstruction," referencing McConnell's refusal to bring two background check bills passed in the House this year for a vote on the Senate floor.

I hope he gets a superbug and his arm rots off. Then he gets a cardiac infection and he dies.

Or maybe a chef could see him and decide to make turtle soup. Top Chef did film in Kentucky last year...

Please pardon me and my bad humor. I've been wrestling with creating a resume and cover letter for a job I really want, but it is a career change, and I'm afraid I won't be qualified enough.

You don't like him, do you?

You can do it! I changed careers and it was one of the best things I've ever done.

Adding my well-wishes to those of the others and hope you smash it. Qualifications are more than just your experience and schooling. A huge part is made up of your character and ethics. If you can, try and incorporate them in your cover letter, it just might get you over the edge. 

If you believe you can do it, then you've got this!

"Twitter freezes McConnell campaign account for posting video of protester’s violent threats"

Spoiler

Twitter locked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign account from further activity Wednesday as punishment for its sharing of a video of protesters screaming obscenities outside the Kentucky Republican’s home.

The social media company will not unlock @TeamMitch unless it agrees to remove the video.

McConnell’s campaign confirmed to The Washington Post that its account was suspended. The Courier-Journal first reported the story.

“This morning, Twitter locked our account for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell. This is a problem with the speech police in America today,” Kevin Golden, McConnell’s campaign manager, said in a statement.

The video shows a group of protesters gathered outside McConnell’s Louisville home on Monday. A woman, identified by the Courier-Journal as Black Lives Matter Louisville leader Chanelle Helm, is heard on the video mocking McConnell’s recent shoulder injury and saying he “should have broken his little, raggedy, wrinkled-ass neck.”

She then yells, “Just stab the m----- f----- in the heart, please.” Someone also yells, “Die!”

Golden criticized Twitter for having contradictory standards.

“Twitter will allow the words of ‘Massacre Mitch’ to trend nationally on their platform, but locks our account for posting actual threats against us,” Golden added. “We appealed and Twitter stood by their decision, saying our account will remain locked until we delete the video.”

In the wake of two back-to-back mass shootings in Texas and Ohio over the weekend, the hashtag “#MassacreMitch” name caught fire on Twitter with critics blaming McConnell for blocking stricter gun laws.

A Twitter spokesperson also confirmed the campaign account was locked.

“The user was temporarily locked out of their account for a Tweet that violated our violent threats policy, specifically threats involving physical safety,” the spokesperson said in an email.

The social media company’s rules state that a tweet “may not threaten violence against an individual or a group of people.”

The last tweets on @TeamMitch’s page are related to the incident, but the video itself has been hidden from the public until the matter is resolved.

“These threats go far beyond a political cartoon or a broken shoulder,” the account wrote on Tuesday, “they are serious calls to physical violence and we’ve alerted law enforcement.”

just came here to share the same thing.  I'm frankly surprised.  Maybe someone at Twitter doesn't really care for #moscowmitch and his ilk?

      Did whatever I had change my personality at all?  Maybe a good thing if it makes my asshole tolerance even lower than before.

      My mother's family's farm (in northern California) was the stable touchstone of my childhood, the place we went for many holidays & most summers, if only for a week or two at a time. My mother was a travel enthusiast, my father was in the military, my younger sister & I grew up in the back of a car. Been in every state in the union except maybe North Dakota, spent three months in Europe, three months in Mexico -- all before I was a teen. I realized, as an adult, I don't actually like traveling. It makes me anxious. My mother kept traveling up until shortly before she died.

      This place is much nicer when there aren’t drunk douche nozzles trying to start WWIII with my sister. 

      Last time I was here I brought my sister. There was a drunk douche cannon holding court here. He and my sister took mutual exeception to each other. Well he first then my sister responded.
      We got out of there before he got even dumber since there’s another brewery across the street.  Drunk fucker didn’t follow us and I think some flashing lights a few minutes later were for him.

      On the one hand, my mother did her best to raise my sibling & I secular & liberal/leftish, but on the other hand she regularly shipped me off to stay with her fundie farmwife mother for months at a time. I prolly spent at least a coupla years of my childhood out on that farm where my grandmother did her darnedest to convert me to all the regressive things (hilariously, all it did was push me further into the peacenik thing). I've got a lot more to say about my maternal grama, fwiw.
