@Spiggitzfan Are you OK? We're seeing talk of a terrible wildfire in TX and people being forced to evacuate, high winds, and over 200,000 acres burning. Please be OK?

I'm old enough to remember when surge pricing was called by it's other name - price gouging.

Good luck Wendy's - I hope you go broke soon. 👋

Wendy's CEO announces surge pricing for menu. Here's what you can expect.

@Professor_Stevens @helplessduck @mmiasma @metropia EVEN if you live in a food desert, you CAN (and should) make a trip once a month for stuff you can buy in bulk, just so you can keep these ghouls from feasting on your living flesh.

@helplessduck @mmiasma @metropia NO IT ISN'T. It isn't going to become the new normal, because you are going to gather 60 friends and go to Wendy's and tell them you'll only order lunch if you can negotiate a group discount. Or, better yet, boycott Wendy's and other fast food joints and start making food. Do it with your friends so you can each take turns at providing sandwiches or wraps or whatever for lunch.

Going downstairs to roast some pig. It may take some time. There's WRANGLING to be done! Yeow. I'll be back sometime, honest.

@KatM Hopefully, falling-apart tender. It got a great, brown crust, tho! Patting it dry makes all the difference!

@KatM I was vegetarian for a while. It made me really sick (I have a blood deficiency which I didn't know at the time). My doctor said she could give me iron & B-12 shots in the ass every week, or I could go out and eat some meat. Here I am, 50 years later, roasting pigs.

Fucking Washington Post:

Biden prevails but strong showing from ‘uncommitted’ voters; Trump defeats Haley

is the headline.

Haley won 30% of the vote.
"Uncommitted" won 15% against Biden. Yet, Biden's getting a "but strong showing," while Haley's getting a "defeated by Trump."

The mass media is definitely in the tank for that Fetid Weasel, Trump.

So. Since @taylorlorenz is now out here attacking, misquoting, deadnaming and dishonoring dead transchildren on her next clout chase to fame, it’s time to get into the predatory and delusional behavior across Clubhouse and Twitter that got her FIRED from NYT. I was there. I saw it first hand. She tried it with me. It failed. So now it’s time to tell the story.

Because what you WONT do is attack and disrespect #nexbenedict and not have me stand on business with this btch.

Fucking Arizona, man. They tryna pass a bill to let ranchers SHOOT TO KILL undocumented folks.

Now, we ALL know what this means. It's open season on brown-skinned folks. I mean, you'd have to TALK to me to know I'm not one of THOSE BROWN PEOPLE YOU'RE ALLOWED TO SHOOT. And I don't think these people will be doing any talking. Fuckers.

@GhostOnTheHalfShell @BurrLand01 That's what colonizers mostly do. Kill you while you're sleeping, whether it's slow death from starvation/malnutrition or the quick death by bullet. Y'all still doing it, too. Wherever you think we can't see you.

Mt. Everest is laden with waste left by climbers — Nepal's Department of Tourism estimates that there are nearly 140,000 tons. Now, some of that material is finding its way to Tharu craftswomen who combine discarded ropes with moonj, a traditionally harvested wild grass, to make boxes and mats. NPR's Tanka Dhakal explains more about how the program works, and how its organizers hope it will grow.

86% of #Indigenous people in America live outside reservations, often in cities like #Denver, #Seattle and #Portland, where they resettled following the Relocation Act (hi 👋 ).

Indigenous people comprise 2.6% of America’s population, but in 2023, they accounted for 3.9% of those experiencing homelessness. And the #housing inequity is worse in Western cities.

But building affordable housing for Natives is tricky.

@Toastie My friend, I am so happy and grateful that this is happening. All of us should be paying you rent for this land that we are living on. Your ill-treatment by the colonizers is a horrible price to pay for your lives. I am striving to make things better for the Native people I know. I hope everyone hears your words and and responds to them. Preferably with a payment of rent.

I'm in a Bloodywood taste-my-boot kinda state of mind. Nex Benedict's death is bothering TF outa me. Today I read about him/them on the 19th:

https://19thnews.org/2024/02/nex-benedict-oklahoma-lgbtq-community-resilience/

Apparently, they preferred he/they pronouns. Being Native and trans means that this child suffered from unbearable pressures, bc while their family and people accept transgender individuals, the white society of Oklahoma does not. Chaya Raichik is also involved in this hatefest.

thepoliticalcat,
@thepoliticalcat@mastodon.social avatar

@hannahshouse2 The article reflects Nex's preference for he, him pronouns, although he also accepted they, them pronouns. This person went to Nex's family and spoke to them and Nex's trans friends to get an accurate picture of who Nex was and what they would have wanted.

@drupalchix Too easy to blame something abstract that can't argue back. We're all bad actors when we want to be. The Ten Commandments (or however many the religion with the most has) doesn't work in real life, and people really don't know how NOT to impose their idiot authoritarian tendencies on each other. I sure af do it all the time, and I think of myself as a conscious being living a considered life. For all the good it does.

Inspired by @kcarruthers , I did a Zumba routine online. I lasted 15 minutes the first day. It was so confusing because of all the steps. I did the routine again yesterday and got to 20 mins. I’m going to keep going until I can do the full 30 mins 😊 It’s fun!#exercise
