The Wednesday Politics Thread Did Some Self-Care

I took a self-care afternoon yesterday , so I am hoping that when this post goes live today I am feeling refreshed and energized. And I hope you are also feeling refreshed and energized as well. If you are able, taking some time to focus on yourself and your wellness can make a huge difference. Let’s see what kinda stuff was happening on Februarys 15th in PT and Avocado past:

2022: Giuliani agreed to cooperate with the January 6th committee. Canada took steps to regulate crowdfunding and crypto. Gun manufacturer Remington settled a liability lawsuit with the families of Sandy Hook victims.
