Some of this sounds sensible to me. Private cram schools and tutoring companies create a market for human futures, profit from it, and in the process destroy many a kid's childhood.

Yes, and however Texas and other GOP gerrymanders.
I believe that a bipartisan effort is needed to make the redistricting process less partisan.

Good! Blue states such as Illinois are doing the same thing.
Wouldn't it be better for democracy if nobody did this gerrymandering? I'm for nonpartisan commissions. What about you?

I'm all for nonpartisan commissions to draw electoral maps. Some states (such as Michigan, California, Idaho, Colorado, Washington, etc.) do this already. It's a healthier way.
What do our Republican friends think of this idea? Are you in favor of nonpartisan commissions?

Republican state Sen. Joan Huffman, who authored the maps and leads the Senate Redistricting Committee, told fellow lawmakers that they were “drawn blind to race.”
Hispanic voters tend to vote for Democrats. The Texas GOP redraws the districts to disadvantage Democrats. So even though Sen. Joan Huffman can claim that the GOP is not discriminating directly against minorities, they are using statistics about minorities' voting tendencies to win an unfair advantage.
So she's being disingenuous at best.

constant and repetitive Trump bashing
This is a news story about Trump filing a lawsuit in order to hinder an investigation into an attack on the electoral process. For his own benefit, not the country's. The same Trump who has a decades-long track record of scams and deceit. The guy who got impeached twice.
I think one would expect a fair amount of animosity toward the man.

So why is he suing to keep public documents secret if he is innocent?
Trump followers will simultaneously argue all three of the following:
--Donald Trump is not corrupt. That's a liberal lie.
--And what's wrong with being corrupt if it keeps libs in their place?
--And what about Nancy Pelosi, Hunter Biden, and James Comey (the "rouge" cop). Everybody is corrupt.
Then the thread successfully gets run into the ditch.

Not what their sworn statements say. Funny, the DOJ and that genius Psaki when asked don’t want to elaborate….hmmm…
The defendants' sworn statements claim their due processes were denied? Is that evidence?

Legislation the GOP has no interest in even discussing.
because Democrats are in charge of all branches of government and can do anything they want without even one Republican.
That wasn't your point. You were saying that "the media" (by which I take you mean the entire universe of liberals) is using January 6 as a distraction. Which I demonstrated not to be true.

not giving them due process
This is false. None of them have been denied due process. You keep pushing this idea without a shred of evidence.
Just a media way to avoid the real problems of inflation, supply chain, crime, lack of job creation, the economy, the border, Afghanistan, etc.
The Democrats are trying to pass legislation that attempts to deal with a lot of the problems you list. Legislation the GOP has no interest in even discussing. What the GOP is mostly focusing on is the Big Lie (since DJT is still ranting about that), the tyranny of mask and vaccine mandates, critical race theory, transgender bathrooms, and the war on Christmas.

Hmm. And why are we reading about these "beliefs" in an Associated Press story? That's another myth: that Cult 45 voices are being silenced.
Let's go back to the story, bass. Scalise says a number of states didn't follow the Constitution. Can you specify why?
My prediction? No.

“I will devote my body and soul to overcome the national crisis together with the people to pioneer the new era so that we can pass a bountiful Japan to the next generation,” said Kishida.
You know, it takes more than words to do this. When the Japanese electorate hears such statements, it just smacks of more BS, whatever Kishida feels in his heart of hearts. I hate to be pessimistic, but I am. There are just too many structural barriers, too little political will, and too much apathy among the public.
Decades of it.

"The United States is heading into its greatest political and constitutional crisis since the Civil War," Kagan wrote.
I don't hold much respect for neocons, but Kagan's piece in the WaPo is really on target. The GOP has gone full throttle on subverting the ideals of American democracy. It's plain as day.

The photo says it clearly: Syukuro Manabe, USA.
Like most of the Nobel laureates born in Japan, Manabe did his groundbreaking work in an environment where thinking outside the box is valued more than kissing one’s senpai’s hiney.
But the J-press will herald this as another award for Japanese superiority.

silencing any opposition opinions
There is absolutely no evidence that social media companies are "silencing" conservative voices.
Rather, far right nationalist and populist movements have flourished with the help of social media. These movements rely on outrage and grievance clickbait, which are also what drive social media platforms. The crazier the content, the more clicks and views it gets.
Trump was booted off Twitter because his violations of the terms of agreement became more and more egregious, not because his ideas were "conservative". If Twitter was really that much into censoring Trump's wisdom, it would have done so four years earlier.

You may also want to ask yourself why right wing pundits like Ben Shapiro dominate political content on Facebook. Right wing "news" outlets like The Daily Wire, The Blaze, Breitbart News, and The Western Journal consistently get more social media engagement than The NY Times, the WaPo, or CNN. Doesn't sound like a conspiracy to silence conservatives to me.

It's so simple. As a company, Twitter has the right to block him.
