As paramedics were rolling Castile onto a backboard, Toran said he saw the gun slide out of Castile’s front right pocket. Toran said he didn’t even have to reach into the pocket to grab it. But St. Paul firefighter Eric Torgerson, a paramedic, testified that he saw an officer reach deeply into the pocket to retrieve the pistol. ~ @KellyannePolls Laughing my #Ossoff ~ Pro Tip to future campaigners: Don’t make a vulgar joke about your last name the campaign slogan. #VoteyourOssoff got old and annoying. ~ The Real Story of the Von Trapp Family ~ Stevie Wonder ~ Something Fishy Happened in Georgia Special Election, Thousands of Voters Turned Away ~ Young Joni Mitchell Performs a Hit-Filled Concert in London (1970) ~ An inventory of Philando Castile’s car: Life, interrupted ~ The dashcam video ~ Why this millennial Democrat’s concession speech sounds like he’s doing an Obama impression ~ John Waters’ RISD Graduation Speech: Real Wealth is Never Having to Spend Time with A-Holes ~ Another question I heard recently has the same answer.

The answer to both questions: All of them. ~ Use-of-force experts analyze Castile shooting video ~ @Kaepernick7 A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled! ~ Yanez juror: ‘Nobody was OK with it’ “It just came down to us not being able to see what was going on in the car. Some of us were saying that there was some recklessness there, but that didn’t stick because we didn’t know what escalated the situation: was he really seeing a gun? ~ Timekeeping as feminist pedagogy ~ Surgeons urge people to throw away that wire bristle BBQ brush ASAP ~ Off-duty St. Louis officer injured by ‘friendly fire’ after police chase of stolen car ~ Philando Castile ~ Yanez juror: ‘Nobody was OK with it’ Minnesota Public Radio is doing an outstanding job of covering the Jeronimo Yanez trial. Today, there is a powerful interview with one of the jurors. If you want to move past the sensational clickbait, there are a few things to learn. ~ Porn, Nazis and sarcasm: How these 3 old rules basically explain the entire Internet ~ Man allegedly shot by motorist while fleeing police ~ murderism ~ People Were Mad At Campbell’s Soup Because Of Their Gay Friendly Ad And Campbell’s Had The Best Response Ever ~ wsbn55894 | Directors of “Waffle House” Group Describe Beginnings, Real Estate, Buildings, Etc. ~ I just got a robo call from the Susan B. Anthony foundation. This is different from the Susan B. Komen foundation. SBAF wants me to vote for a so called pro life candidate. Her opponent was labelled a pro abortion extremist. The #GA06 election is tomorrow. On wednesday, this nightmare will be over. ~ “Propaganda does not deceive people, it merely helps them deceive themselves.” ~ Eric Hoffer ~ Thank you for the phrase *retail politician*.Yes, Hillary was qualified, at least compared to WJC, GWB, BHO, and DJT. However, both HRC and KCH have yukky personalities. While the substance may be good, the style is terrible. And the show business part of politics is important. There is one other difference. Whatever her shortcomings, KCH is famous because of who she is. KCH is not famous because of her husband. ~ @BillKristol “Talk to the elbow ’cause the hand is on vacation” is a favorite way of mine of communicating with the young hipsters at @weeklystandard. ~ The voters of #GA06 are the winners. They have endured the well funded efforts the entire nation. This unpleasant experience will be over tomorrow morning. ~ And when I give you the stupid answer you requested… ~ A recent post is Questionnaire for left-wing hacks. One item: “Are there topics you refuse to cover because doing so would make you a pariah among your journalist friends?” Let the good times roll. ~ the philadelphia flag is ugly it does not represent a population known for having good taste ~ @rickygervais You can walk through the valley of the shadow of death and fear no evil, but an atheist tweeting an opposing view is jolly hurtful. ~ I was listening to a show about the Presidency recently. Someone asked, would you rather have a competent scoundrel, or an honest buffoon. They did not consider today, when the President is an incompetent scoundrel. ~ @realDonaldTrump Since the Obama Administration was told way before the 2016 Election that the Russians were meddling, why no action? Focus on them, not T! ~ @realDonaldTrump Obama Administration official said they “choked” when it came to acting on Russian meddling of election. They didn’t want to hurt Hillary? ~ I enjoyed seeing you last night. When I got home, I remembered that we had this online discussion/argument. At no time, when I was in your presence last night, did it occur to me to mention this discussion. Until I found this comment thread, to make this comment, I could not remember what the discussion was about. ~ @realDonaldTrump Karen Handel’s opponent in #GA06 can’t even vote in the district he wants to represent….because he doesn’t even live there! He wants to raise taxes and kill healthcare. On Tuesday, #VoteKarenHandel. @chamblee54 Replying to @realDonaldTrump With all due respect, this #GA06 voter is not interested in your opinion ~ 1- Don’t tell me what body part to vote off. 2- Do you live in #GA06? If not, mind your own business. 3- If you live in #GA06, be sure to cast your secret ballot. ~ @realDonaldTrump Just out: The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russia. Did nothing about it. WHY? @jamiedupree In this tweet, the President acknowledges that there was election interference by Russia in 2016 ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
