Thinking about politics...
🧵 (1/34)

Quote (from Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll):
"The most curious part of the thing was, that the trees and the other things round them never changed their places at all: however fast they went, they never seemed to pass anything. “I wonder if all the things move along with us?” thought poor puzzled Alice. And the Queen seemed to guess her thoughts, for she cried, “Faster! Don’t try to talk!”"

@dynamic What a load of self-indulgent crap. If you had actually bothered to do some basic reading, you would know that Sanders was a Russian asset, a useful idiot. He talks the talk but has NEVER walked the walk. Even Medicare For All was an idea he STOLE from John Conyers, who first introduced it in 2003, and every subsequent year. Bernie stole the idea and never gave Conyers credit, bc stealing from POC is all he's really good at.

Time to go to snoreland. Wow. Interesting day, today. Cold as fuck, foggy, the tomato seedlings are like, "What do you MEAN, get watered, you asshole?"

I guess tomorrow is feed and water tomatoes day. Roasted some salmon tonight, gonna throw it in a pasta salad with some fusilli, cherry tomatoes, olives, capers, spinach and lettuce. I need more veggies.

Have a lovely weekend, y'all. I'm'a pass out now. It's been a day or something, na?

Oh, geeze, imagine that. It's not the immigrants causing problems. It's the assholes mad about immigrants!

Ah, geeze, I'm in so much pain again. This is how bad it is. I'm really happy about the fact that I did not wake up screaming from the pain. OK, this is how SICK I is. I think this is hilariously funny. 😂 😂

Two days in a row I did not wake up screaming. This means I MUST be feeling better! Yay! 😂

@lovelylovely Thank you, darling, but I know there are so many more who are suffering much worse than I am! Happy to be a reasonably healthy 80+ oldie who can still walk around, garden, and cook good food!

@oldrawgabbit It's really not that bad. When it's bad, I wake up screaming, and I get these double-strength NSAIDs. I take them for a few days, exercise, apply ice and heat, stretch, and, voila! Everything works fine again! For a few days, anyway.

It's funny as hell now, bc I KNOW it's never gonna get better, so I might as well be amused by it. 😂

@lovelylovely Girlfriend. As a brown person, I KNOW when they get done killing Black folks, they are coming for me and mine. I don't lie to myself about that shit, not for one day. ALWAYS an ally.

I can now read this. It's only HSK 1 level, but the joy of being able to read Chinese when I couldn't last year is 😭
One step at a time!

This article on ‘man or bear’ was surprisingly great

@skinnylatte Rather naive, I think, in a culture that classifies anything female as a thing to be used for various purposes. Labor, emotional, sexual, or other, certainly. But I think slavery guides the treatment of women in America as it does not in any other country.

@PalmAndNeedle That you should take a flying fuck at the MOOOOON? I dunno, what the fuck is your problem?

thepoliticalcat,
@thepoliticalcat@mastodon.social avatar

@newro @skinnylatte Please get yourself a copy of Isabel Wilkerson's wonderful book, "Caste," and read it. And when you're done, you can read her next book as well. You really need to understand the American version of chattel slavery. Every Black person in this country has white relatives. That should tell you plenty about the role of Black women in chattel slavery.

Dear friends, if any of you loves chickens and is willing to take in this flock of hens and their rooster, it would be a great kindness.

@DisposableHero Juju just about to start watching The Sopranos with us. He's not into sports, he just likes to watch people chase each other around in cars or kill each other. 😳

A genuinely thick fog is consuming San Francisco -- quite a rare event in these times. I'm standing outside accumulating moisture in my clothes and hair. #sanfrancisco

@annaleen It's been cool and foggy all day here, and I don't think the daytime temps got above the high 50s. Fog rolled in as soon as evening hit. We're now surrounded by a ginormous cloud of fog, up in the East Bay hills.

ORCAS AND DOLPHINS DO NOT BELONG IN CAPTIVITY!

Keeping , and other cetaceans in is cruel. Depriving them of the vast open spaces and social bonds that they would normally have in the wild, and confining them to small, concrete to perform tricks for dead fish is highly unethical for these complex marine mammals. No matter how sophisticated the enclosure, no man made facility can ever hope to replicate the wild world of dolphins and whales.

@anna_lillith This is COMPLETE bullshit. Dolphins are intelligent creatures like us, and should not be forced to participate in OUR therapy without consent. First, figure out how to understand their language, and get their informed consent. Then you can try to sell us this godawful bullshit.
