If you are white and you get offended by the word "cracker," if it makes you angry, you have perpetual small dick energy.

I don't make the rules.

Super excited! My co-workers and I have just scheduled a meeting with organizers. We're a small shop, in a reddish US state that's "right to work," and we're owned by a big corporation based in Texas. Seems like we've got an uphill battle on our hands, but I'm beyond thrilled to be moving forward.

Sorry to be vague, this is the only social media I'm 90% sure my work doesn't see, but I still want to be cautious. I'll be sharing updates as to how it goes here.

While this is a tiny ember of good, make no mistake about it, the GOP and Evangelicals know that abortion bands do not have popular support and have never had it. That this referendum in Kansas was allowed to happen and then failed has taught them to not let the people vote on it.

They want Christian fascism and minority rule. Popular sentiment and actual democracy only get in the way of their rise to power so they will suppress it whenever and wherever they can.

this is about orson Welles' 1938 antifascist production of Shakespeare's Julius caesar. fuckin lmao

"She misspoke"
Yeah, she certainly did! She said the quite part out loud... she then went on to quote Hitler after she won.

It's not a dog whistle if you're literally shouting it from a podium.

Was told so many times. I was exaggerating or hysterical when I pointed out that the capitalists want to use Christian Dominionism to gain better control over the nation. I have been told I've read too many dystopian fiction novels. I have been told it's just a fringe of the right making the rest look bad. I've been told it's only one election, "both are as bad as one another."

Well here we are.
It's just out in the open now.
No subterfuge, no filter.

With cheers for a theocratic dictatorship.

So, Space Man is big mad that Bird Site essentially will not do a thing that they're not contractually obligated to do. His window to request info like this passed long before he formally made any request. He & his lawyers know that fact, so they're throwing a fit to distract. He could be on the hook for up to one billion USD if he backs out of the deal. Call it a hunch but, based on his previous dealings, I'll bet 5 USD he gets Tesla to pay the $1b.

‘No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens

With the rise in mass casualty events in the US, everyone needs to know at least some first aide. Knowing first aid can save lives and/or help you give better info to 911 operators before paramedics arrive.

In Australia, schools have more than one door. They also have folks struggling with mental health issues. They also have societal problems. They work on all of these things. We should work on all of these things.

But as far as shooting deaths go, it's one thing. It’s the guns.

Australia confiscated 650,000 guns. Murders and suicides plummeted:
In the wake of the killing in Uvalde, here’s what America can learn from Australia’s response to tragedy.

So many insider Trekkie jokes to make in so little time!
Mirror Janeway transporter cloned an army of Tuvixes to conquere the Delta Quadrant. Then she, as an aspirational Empress to the Terran Sectors with her chef enforcer Grand Admiral Harry Kim, finally returned to the Alpha Quadrant to destroy her enemies with the heads of thousands of Borg drones tied to the saucer section of the ISS Voyager... they also had a manic telepathic Kes knocking Starships from the skies of unfortunate planets.

Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!


Asides of #hashtags there are also #groups on the #fediverse. They are a nice way of forming a community not limited to servers or instances.

I'm following a number of them on Guppe; @plants and @mastobikes.

It's easy to start a new one, just mention it and then go to the page and follow it! Here's a new one I'll start following: @nature
