Rudy’s law license was “suspended.” It could be reinstated, but more than likely WILL be revoked.

And the audits have to be random
Maricopa has a paper trail.
The republican party should foot the bill to replace those voting machines, not the Maricopa County taxpayers!
I hope that they will replace them with all mail-in ballots.
recruit youth to be election officials...?

I think we need to start referring to the supremely corrupt court.
voting software should be open software
On voting SW, I used to work for the manufacturer of the largest, most complex commercially available product on the market - passenger airplanes. Every bit of SW was available for review and certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. O
I'm pretty certain that SW was a lot more proprietary than a program that can count in whole digits. I agree the SW should be open.
BECU is open to more than just boeing folk now

USAIVA, Rich Stevenson
What is critical race theory. Very fussy concept to me. Still.
Please raise you hand “under reactions” if you have a question.
@Rich - I will ask that for you.
From Rebecca: CRT is an analytical tool for examining all of the many influences on the racism that has become systemic.
From Rebecca: How can you sue a tool like CRT?
As I understand CRT is an analytical tool for examining all of the many influences on the racism that has become systemic in the U. S. and beyond.
I just attended a webinar today with Kimberly Crenshaw.
Wouldn’t CRT apply to any “race” — not necessarily just to African-American members of the “Black” race.
Critical Race Theory: An Introduction (3rd edition) - https://www.degruyter.com/document/doi/10.18574/9781479851393/html
Freedom Foundation has chapters in many states. It is almost entirely funded by the Koch organization.
Critical Race Theory refers to white people. The white race. It refers to the efforts of the white race in the US to fashion a legal system favoring white people.
WASA - WA Association of School Adminisrators
Washington Policy Center has bought full-page ads in the Seattle Times and Spokesman Review opposing CRT.
CRT is NOT a theory. It is based on facts and laws; it is based on analysis of the legal system. Race, in the US, is a legal construct.
That is what the 1619 project, first episode, looked at.
Karen, civil war is coming. I dont think there is any way to prevent it.
Great meeting, folks. Sorry, but I must leave. Until next time!
For a lot of people, "the other" are people not in their town, city, or community, and it is easier to fear people you do not know.

Wouldn’t it be nice if next week it were raining for Happy Hour??? Must leave now.
Great discussion on CRT:
Yes, Jeremy…. Great conversation about CRT.
In the words of the great philosopher, “Guilt is worthless!” B. Midler.
Yes, good point Damita!
Very important point, Nick. I urge people to take vacations in Eastern WA and take time to meet people and chat with them socially.
Russia had slaves, Britain had slaves, France had slaves, Japan had slaves, etc
more shitty messaging from the left
full spectrum American history
Very true Mike Weisman -- slavery is as old as the ages - people raiding & enslaving each other.
our slavery is unique in tying slavery to the mother and other ways
Russia abolished slavery in 1870. Japan had slaves until the end of WWII.
Power and wealth came from controlling slaves. Now it comes more from controlling corporations
