Into The Weeds: Longform Political Discussion

Here is this weeks forum for long-form political discussion.

GROUND RULES:

  • Embeds are fine but make sure they can facilitate discussion deeper than “Oh that’s neat.” or “Oh that’s bad”
  • TLDR Policy: While everyone is heavily encouraged to read the articles, tweets, bills, studies in full before responding you can still feel free to post excerpts especially if they contain something specific you want to talk about
  • Jokes are going to happen but try to keep them in the snark while making a larger point mode and not just a quick one-liner

OPTIONAL TOPICS:

  • The Supreme Court is about to go voting on People’s right to get an abortion. The prognosis isn’t good for the constitution’s continuing protection of abortion. Vox’s Ian
  • Any Other topic you want to talk about this week
