It is the absolute height of entitlement for bigots to try and control how their targets define themselves. (See also: blood quantum, "ADOS," and about 150 other examples.)

Thanos is a deranged, evil, obese, bizarrely-colored authoritarian villain who causes mass suffering and is obsessed with his own daughter & ultimately dies defeated and despised. So, sure. Over to you, Legal Dept

Absolutism like this coming from the government is always worrying. The core problem with statements like these is the idea of "what defines a criminal". It's an idea that changes over time, as laws, culture, and our understanding of morality changes.

Apparently this is in preview, only works for white listed domains. Feels like a game changer if MS can deliver it.

DOJ has done it again. A handful of people from New Jersey were released last month after serving 19.5 years, thanks to the crack retroactivity provision in the First Step Act. Today, on the 30th day of their freedom, DOJ filed appeals to send them all back. Disgraceful.

Trump gave a $1.9 TRILLION dollar tax cut to the wealthy. That is 200 TIMES more money than the cost of food stamps for 700,000 people he just cut. That is 40 TIMES more money than the cost of FREE PUBLIC COLLEGE. We have the money. The problem is we're WASTING it.
