There aren’t very many people in this world as evil as Alex Jones and whatever happens won’t be nearly enough, but with that said, at least there was today

I used to watch his dumbass on Austin Public Access TV 25 years ago, while I was still in high school. He was a running joke then among the other shows on the network and among local people who had way too much time on their hands. It is comical how big he became.

She saved carried interest but added a tax on stock buybacks, so on balance it actually generates more revenue than it did previous. It's also just good in general because **** stock buybacks.

So in the past few days:

- Kansas votes to protect abortion rights by a larger margin than Trump won in 2020 (obviously good for Dems, and likely establisment Dems especially)

-Moderate Dem beats Progressive Dem in MI-11 incumbent v. incumbent primary royale

-Build Back Manchin looks set to pass barring Parliamentarian or House craziness.

Vini hasn't posted in over 2 days. Anyone checked to make sure he's properly hydrated??

Verdict: Alex Jones owes $45.2 million more to Sandy Hook in punitive damages. That's on top of $4.1 million in compensatory.

That's $49.3 million to two Sandy Hook families. Two more trials after this.

Unanimous verdict (what's required for punitive damages).

eat literally all of the ****, *******


only thing that sucks is he's prob like 99% to have knocked down to peanuts on appeal, as nothing good ever happens

Lol **** Alex Jones with a rusty spoon. Maybe this comes down a bit on appeal, but he's going to get ****ed to shreds by the never ending list of trials. The real worry is he'll try and pull some odd bankruptcy nonsense and avoid total ruin somehow.

In other news:

Warnock vs. Walker averaging Warnock +5, Fetterman vs. Oz averaging Fetterman +9 and Tim Ryan up over JD Vance by 10% in newest poll. Turns out the worst thing for Republicans is being seen.

seeing one twitter lawyer saying that punitive damages are capped at $750k in texas, so it's gonna get knocked down to $4.1M compensatory + $750k punitive

Want another bite of that **** sandwich?

Of his two remaining trials, one is in Texas, and the other is in Connecticut, where he's already lost. CT has some of the dumbest punitive damage laws in the country: it limits them to "the costs of litigation and attorney’s fees."

Dude is going to get off far lighter that he should, even considering he'll still likely owe $20M+ when the dust settles.

ya and someone was saying that per previous disclosures he makes like $2-3m/day or something

(so, really shitty that everyone is reporting this $50m number when they all know it's not)

Good to see both parties coming together in bipartisanship on the one thing they both truly love most: denying people healthcare.
