So The New York Times just be running straight lies for war, eh? Like it mixes it with some truth and left-adjacent voices so it's kind of seen as a both-sides space. (https://jacky.wtf/2024/4/oVWH)

Short term rentals win on location, but real hotels definitely win on beds.

@BlackAzizAnansi I'm sorry you have live in an HOA.

That shit is evil.

@BlackAzizAnansi feel like people are better at living together in denser areas. I've never had a problem, but pretty much everyone I know in an HOA has.

Sucks enough dealing with zoning BS. Definitely don't need someone else telling me how I can paint or what I can grow.

This is irresponsible, and the data we have actually shows it won't erupt in violence. Despite Jan 6, there have been multiple other threats of violence, like the mar a lago subpoena, and literally nothing has materialized. They're making violence MORE LIKELY by making folks thinks other people will participate.

Not that we shouldn't be ready. And find out whose side your local cops are on.

@BlueDot Yeah there are definitely some planning and there may be some who try something. Nor do I not think folks should be ready.

I do think it's unlikely that unless they're all convinced that there's going to be millions out that they'll actually go, though. It's kinda the catch-22 of fascists. They're all fucking cowards, they tend to only show up if they think they're gonna outnumber everyone else.

Drive them back into their holes and they shrink.

I think we need to start making fraudulent voter challenges illegal. Especially at scale. Like, come with a bunch of bullshit YOU'RE the one that ends up in jail.

I'd really like someone to write up a study of whether Biden's excellent work on student debt relief is translating to any appreciable vote bumps.

I feel like all the people who used to make a big deal about this (Berners) have been quiet about it, but instead of quietly appreciating that he's gotten a lot done they've quietly switched to calling him genocide joe.

My hypothesis is that you have to do good works because they are the right thing to do, and then do whatever politicing you have to do to win votes. That contrary to the consistent lefty claims that doing good things for people wins votes, there is basically nothing you can do to satisfy a lot of folks.

@kevinriggle It's not that I hear people still whining, it's that I don't hear people giving him credit and talking about how this makes it more likely they'll vote for him.

I don't think this has actually helped him politically, is my point.

And it definitely, definitely should've.

The Washington Post learned about the 'plan' that Trump has/had to end the war within 24 hours, based on anonymous sources familiar with the matter. Trump’s plan reportedly involved pushing Ukraine to cede Crimea and Donbas to Russia.

@noelreports if that's trump's plan, that's Putin's plan for a pause for a few more years before attacking again.

Culture is the wealth of the poor.

To sing and dance, to make music or craft stories costs nothing and yet it enriches the one doing it, and often others.

Culture flows from lived experiences, struggles, yearnings, wishes, hopes and dreams.

When you're born rich, there's no struggle, no yearnings, no wishes unfulfilled, no hopes to inspire you, no dreams to achieve. Rather, your life is basically, "That there, that thing, I want that, do you take AmEx, wait, I'm bored with it already."

qkslvrwolf,
@qkslvrwolf@mastodon.social avatar

@angiebaby I have a personal hypothesis that you need to have some stress and want some things you can't have in order to be mentally healthy. Especially when you're a kid, but also life long. I think this is why most wealthy people, and especially generationally wealthy folks, have so many mental illnesses.

Hello! We want to show Cryap. We already wrote this, but our previous fedi.software instance was shut down without warning, so we had to create a new account. Please follow again if you have followed before.

Cryap is a federated social network written in Rust, which is under development. It can federate with Mastodon, Pleroma and other ActivityPub compatible social networks! We will be glad to new contributors.

You can find out more here: https://codeberg.org/cryap/cryap
