It's definitely an empty gesture, complete with banning a few rude but innocuous left-wing subs so they can say they're just neutrally enforcing the rules. Still, the_donald going from untouchable to getting banned as an empty gesture says something about the context beyond reddit.

Even if there was even a remote possibility Mitch McConnell would allow Trump to be impeached, it wouldn't be done by November. The Democrats might try again anyway if Trump gets reelected, but I doubt they bother otherwise.

Paste the url of the image rather than the album to embed it:

I only listened to a few episodes, and the one in the link is the worst of them. Most of them are her interviewing artists she knows, and it kind of has the feel of being a fly on the wall of the coolest retirement home in the world. I've been enjoying it.

There are dozens of peach farms within driving distance of me. I can definitely find ripe ones.

... damnit, now that you said that I want to make peach ice cream.
