‘Like an Experimental Concentration Camp’: Whistleblower Complaint Alleges Mass Hysterectomies at ICE Detention Center

quote [ Several legal advocacy groups on Monday filed a whistleblower complaint on behalf of a nurse at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center documenting "jarring medical neglect" within the facility, including a refusal to test detainees for the novel coronavirus and an exorbitant rate of hysterectomies being performed on immigrant women. ]

What the actual fuck???

"“We’ve questioned among ourselves like goodness he’s taking everybody’s stuff out…That’s his specialty, he’s the uterus collector. I know that’s ugly…is he collecting these things or something…Everybody he sees, he’s taking all their uteruses out or he’s taken their tubes out. What in the world.”"

Life is Short

quote [ Life is short, as everyone knows. When I was a kid I used to wonder about this. Is life actually short, or are we really complaining about its finiteness? Would we be just as likely to feel life was short if we lived 10 times as long?

Since there didn't seem any way to answer this question, I stopped wondering about it. Then I had kids. That gave me a way to answer the question, and the answer is that life actually is short. ]

I came across this the day before Chadwick died so it was still rumbling around in my head when I read it.

On Segregated Suburbs, Trump Says the Quiet Part Out Loud

quote [ Targeting HUD’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, the president said on Twitter that enforcing housing desegregation would have a “devastating impact.”( ]

I can't tell if this continued all in on racism is a good polling strategy or not. I guess if your plan is to cancel elections then...

Files Appear to Show Gerrymandering Specialist Unconstitutionally Used Race Data to Draw Voting Maps

quote [ A North Carolina court on Tuesday struck down the state's legislative voting maps, reasoning that the current maps "do not permit voters to freely choose their representative." The court's decision hinged on evidence acquired from the computer records of Thomas Hofeller, the recently deceased GOP operative and godfather of modern-day gerrymandering, who spearheaded the state's efforts to redraw voting maps. ]

Shocking! Shocking I say! Totally unexpected!
