^ The increase in hate crimes is both disturbing and predictable.  It was so obvious that a vote for Trump was a vote for hate.  It's sad to think that people are so easily led down the wrong path, but we know from both history and social science that it's true. People can be led to unleash their worst selves by a bad leader. We have got to get ride of him ASAP.

 

Meanwhile, I do wonder what the numbers would be if we took out the hundreds of calls that Israeli Jewish boy made to JCCs. Should it count if the person who made the calls has a mental disorder and belongs to the very group he's threatening? Maybe it should, I'm no expert, but I do feel a little bit better knowing that these statistics

The FBI released its annual report on hate crime statistics yesterday. The overall number of hate crimes in 2017 was up 17 percent from 2016, with a 37 percent rise in crimes targeting Jews and Jewish institutions, which was highlighted by the ADL. Last year, 938 anti-Semitic incidents were reported, up from 684 incidents in 2016.

 

were driven in part by someone who couldn't follow through without getting on a plane.

Many of today's doctors are absolutely not having it!

Of all the self serving decision Amazon could have made this takes the cake.  Why on earth did they need to choose two of the most expensive rental markets? Well yeah, I know why, but it still makes me sad when I think of the gentrification and housing crunch this will cause. Why not choose places where there is actual land to expand? I suppose Nashville fits that bill, but choosing NYC is just eye roll worthy. Neither NYC nor Virginia/DC should be paying a penny to Amazon.

 

Not living in big cities is a big plus. Maybe it will help make rural areas more blue, too.

Glad I never got too into Avenatti. 

When I read about some of his financial dealings (I posted the article here a few months ago in this thread), he started to look like a shady and unsavory character to me.  Maybe this will weed him out of thinking of a 2020 presidential run.  This should have no bearing on Stormy Daniels, even though I'm sure the GOP is trying to connect the two, somehow.

I'm sorry to hear of the allegations against Avenatti.  However, if this means he's been knocked out of contention for 2020, then perhaps there's a silver lining.

IMPO, he was never in contention. he always struck me as an ambulance chaser and mob-like lawyer.
