Jack Dorsey Blocks Donald Trump on Twitter

 Bravo, Twitter! CEO Jack Dorsey deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for (belatedly) doing this, as nothing could improve the world more than mitigating the most loathsome internet troll ever. It should have been done 10 years ago when Trump was spreading the racist birther lie about President Obama, but now is better than never. (FYI: With his account permanently closed, Crazy Donald actually tried using the @POTUS handle and was quickly shut down!)

From the best president we never had 

We all needed this! 

And this! 

I stole this from my friend Richard Hicks! 

What a shock that #BlueLivesMatter types don't give a rat's ass about law enforcement 

The punishment for being incredibly stupid should not be death 

The art of the deal

Yes, Virginia. There is a Seditionist in the White House 

 Neera Tanden, Biden's pick for budget chief, defends progressive credentials, deletes old tweets

Are we sure smart people also fall into cults? 

 I guess a misspelling is a lot better than those "Camp Auschwitz" and "6 Million Is Not Enough" T-shirts 

Skarekrow: It's not like they showed any signs of ill intent like that. No one raised gallows and a noose or wrote "Murder the media" or anything. Wait, both those things happened? Well, it's not like they found explosives ... 

Knock me over with a feather ... 

The ghost of Laura Branigan wouldn't have to issue a statement if Trump could just exercise some self-control 

It gets better, Lindsey 

Reminder: 11 more days of tyranny ... but not sure of the official Civil War II start date

"The punishment for being incredibly stupid should not be death" As my spouse says, "There is a great price to pay for lack of awareness." And this woman paid it along with the woman who climbed through the window and was shot. So, too, will the price be paid by those who are being identified from the many photos, particularly the ones they posted themselves on the internet.

Being "incredibly stupid" and part of a mob doesn't make one immune to the consequences. It's sad that her family tried to talk her down from the Qanon conspiracies she adopted but failed. They led her to a rampaging mob that she happily was part of. Look at the joy on her face as she carried the "Don't Tread On Me" flag, glad to be part of a riotous mob.

Once we have made a decision, we have little control over the unintended consequences. That's why being aware of what they might be BEFORE joining the mob is a good thing to do.
