America would collapse if Trump slips back into our White House the chaos would be at a level not seen in America would just confirm America is no more
Folks this election is serious and we must reelect President Biden.
This is something that is very apparent when viewing American politics from the outside. Everything is so dramatic, and the drama fuels conflict and chaos. Journalists typically love drama. It’s more fun to write about than reading policy documents. But in reality, people lead better and happier lives when politics is boring and driven by careful policy. In truth, you want to live in boring times. Boring politicians are good. If you want excitement watch a movie.
JIC anyone has any doubts about the danger that comes from the right to the trans community. This is disgusting and terrifying.

What they really mean is RSS makes us wish we were dead because the fucking fans are worse than vegan crossfitters who just discovered both firefly & THHGTTG.
(The latest item is a book/series I have never read because I don’t have to, as for over 40 years I have had that series quoted at me at such length that reading it would be redundant. It made me wish I didn’t need towels. Ever.)
Especially because you refuse to try to understand why people think RSS is dead.
You might need to immigrate. Wonder how you'll be received.🤔
Republican speaker Mike Johnson no longer wants a border deal.
Mike Johnson no longer wants Putin to lose in Ukraine.
And now, Mike Johnson criticises Joe Biden when he is bombing Iranian-backed militias in Syria and Iraq.
Has COVID-19 mutated again and become personality changing???
I read this just now and love it. So many houses round our way with pointless outdoor lights shining for little reason.
'The Five Principles for Responsible Outdoor Lighting'
- All light should have a clear purpose
- Direct light only toward where it’s needed
- Illumination should be no higher than necessary
- Apply lighting only at times when it is useful
- Use warmer-colored lights where possible
Vinyl collectors: I love vinyl. Sure it’s inconvenient, but it’s worth it because the sound quality is better than Spotify.
Also vinyl collectors: I hate 45s! Sure they have better sound than LPs, but they’re so damn inconvenient!
Unexpected quality-of-life improvement tech feature: computer display with multiple inputs that switches the destination of its built-in USB hub to the active input source. It's fucking great.
My only gripe with it is that this monitor has only 2 USB inputs while it has 4 video inputs…
Trad Wife memes are always like a traditionally attractive skinny blonde woman in a white dress, in a field of flowers, holding hands with their immaculate children. The text always says something like, Why are you working a job, instead of doing your true calling? This is Godly Motherhood!
This how I know these are made by people who have never been around children, or possibly even women, and also never had to worry about money.
Google’s leaked “key goals for 2024” are unfalsifiable bullshit:
“1. Deliver the world's most advanced, safe, and responsible AI.
Improve knowledge, learning, creativity, and productivity.
Build the most helpful personal computing platforms and devices.
Enable organizations and developers to innovate on Google Cloud.
Provide the world's most trusted products and platforms.
Build a Google that's extraordinary for Googlers and the world.
Improve company velocity, efficiency, and productivity, and deliver durable cost savings.”
This is not a surprise, though. These “top level goals” for BigCorps tend to be unfalsifiable, so they can claim to have hit all their goals next year no matter what happens. The real goals that have pass/fail criteria are usually not publicly (or even widely internally) published.
“A Leaked Memo From Google CEO Sundar Pichai Comes Amid Employee Discontent.”
Now that y'all have seen the differing career impacts, media coverage of, and societal reactions to, Black women being accused of plagiarism (Claudine Gay) and white women being accused of plagiarism (Neri Oxman)...
you can understand why I say that widely used automated plagiarism detecting software that advertises a false positive rate of 1%🤦🏿♂️, is devastating for Black students.
Another flavor of: in a racist country, being falsely accused has devastating consequences
The struggle to prevent the civil war and to defeat fascism will not be easy. But we will fucking win.
Republicans can team up with as many fascists, Nazis, and Confederates as they want. But just remember: they have built themselves a coalition of factions who historically always fail.

Let’s imagine that you’re a farmer.
You work a little plot of land. You own this land as what we would call “private property.”
That means it has a single owner (you) and it’s unencumbered (no one else has a claim on it). You can exclude whomever you want from it. It’s yours to do with as you please, including giving it away or selling it. Your claim is permanent and you own it outright (you don’t owe anyone anything for it).
Luckily for you, you grow enough food on this little plot to take care of yourself, just like all your neighbors do on their plots.
So far, so good, right?
