Maybe the Libs can consider reparations to the families of the 350,000 Union troops who died in the war.

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez falsely accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's former chief of staff, Josh Holmes, of running a bot network.

"If you notice a lot more trolls on social media re: politics, it's [because] Mitch McConnell's former Chief of Staff helps run a multimillion dollar operation to have bot accounts manipulate online discourse," Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter

How could you tell ?
Everybody on Twitter sounds like a bot.

Vermont House Passes Bill Legalizing All Abortion

"Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry a pregnancy to term, give birth to a child, or to have an abortion," the bill reads.

It passed by a vote of 106 to 36.

The bill would also strip unborn children of any rights or recognition of their personhood by the state.

"A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus shall not have independent rights under Vermont law," it reads.

Jane, in Firefox, I always leave my JOM tab open.

If Typepad logs me off, I sign in as usual using typepad. Once signed in, I look for the left=facing arrow in the upper left of the screen. I click and hold on that arrow.

That lowers a menu of past pages. If I select the page just below the sign in page, I'm right back to the page where I was before having to sign in -- but, happily, it shows me signed in.

Never fails and only a minor inconvenience.

No workaround required for me.

I use Chrome on my PC (with Adblocker & Killfile running), and Safari on my iPad.

I think I have only been logged off two or three times since this started.

The few times I have had to login, I always use the Typepad options since I don't use Twitter or Facebook or those other things.

Same with me, OL, but I use Brave, which blocks ads natively (and doesn't allow Google to track your browsing history). I think I've been logged out once or twice. No idea why.

Old Lurker

I was with Conrad Black right up to his first sentence of his final paragraph:

"Without realizing the proportions of the emergency, America has survived the greatest constitutional crisis since the Civil War."

I think the jury is still out on that and we will not like the verdict if the two tiered system of justice is seen to survive much longer. At the moment it is alive and well, and there is no visible evidence that it is changing.

Paul Manafort Could Face New York Charges If Trump Pardons Him - Bloomberg

New York state prosecutors have put together a criminal case against Paul Manafort that they could file quickly if the former chairman of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign receives a presidential pardon.

New York County District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. is ready to file an array of tax and other charges against Manafort, according to two people familiar with the matter, something seen as an insurance policy should the president exercise his power to free the former aide. Skirting laws that protect defendants from being charged twice for the same offense has been one of Vance’s challenges.

The Hill piece on Kraft is shameful. First the headline is that Kraft is "charged in a prostitution ring," which sounds a lot worse than just solicitation. Then the lead paragraph is "Robert Kraft, a long-time friend of President Trump and owner of the New England Patriots, faces charges in a prostitution sting...."

So "ring" gets changed to "sting," but of course the important thing is to link him to Trump.

As near as I can find there are 235 Democrats in the US House. If 223 have signed a statement saying they care more about illegals than Americans; that must mean that only 12 care about legal Americans over illegals.

My ex used to run a daycare in our home (she still does, only it's now my ex home), and would get occasional visits by state inspectors. It's no problem, they just make sure the adults are really there in the allowed kid/adult ratios, numbers of kids don't exceed the allowed max, place looks safe and and kids look like they're being taken care of ok. If they didn't do this, lots of home daycares would surely break the rules with some ill effects. I don't see why it's a problem for home schooling.
