We badly need a democrat, progressivist or hell, any kind of politician who’s willing to declare republicans terrorists. I’m not fuckin’ joking here; the republican party at this point deserves to be declared a terrorist organization and are an active threat to democracy.
Unfortunately, two problems.
  1. There are some Republicans that don’t think like that.
  2. That’s only gonna motivate Trump even more, possibly give him ammunition.
I also vaguely remember biden calling them semi-fascists at one point or something like that.

I know it isn’t entirely related, but it kind of reminds me of when Biden said that he wanted to make peace with Republicans, even after Jan. 6th.

or Reddit, and i think mastodon is getting some traction from people switiching over from twitter.
Shit, you’re right. I comepletely forgot about those two—especially Reddit.
I guess you could use other platforms for disability mutual aid but we don’t hear about those cases as we do for Twitter in terms of scale.
Smaller scale or not, they have the potential to cope with what Twitter handles. The platform has already gone to shit before Musk took over, and under him, it’s likely only either going to succeed or fail incredibly, and considering how it’s going now, it’s going to fail before being completely remade in a way that could very well be different from both Twitter under Musk and Twitter before Musk.
I am speaking for myself on this one, because I, myself, am mentally disabled. And frankly, speaking as someone who is mentally disabled, myself, the neurodivergent zoomer and gen alpha
You ever think about the white Republican who tried to post the, “as a gay black man” excuse but forgot to change accounts? I think about that sometimes.
Then you’re an even better practitioner of self-deception than I thought, because it actually is the case that I have a mental disability, and one that is compounded by others, at that.
High functioning autism, heavy ADD/ADHD, and (now well-managed) OCD. That’s me.
Or maybe you just want to remain in denial about it, convincing yourself that I am actually lying about it, every step of the way, even though I am not?
this irrelevant response that you just brought up completely out of left-field, set it on fire, and throw it straight into the garbage bin where it belongs.
Such hostility. Since when did I bring up an irrelevant response? I thought we were on the topic of why Twitter should stay up, being used as a platform for disabled mutual aid.
Even if it had something to do with Twitter, I know for a fact that you did bring out of left-field, because:
-nowhere did I ever mention anything about people with disabilities using that website, to begin with,
-and more importantly, this is more likely than not quite possibly an attempt to be contrary to me, simply because my stance on how Twitter doesn’t deserve to exist for how full of shit it has become, and the utterly negative impact it has on us as a society and culturally-speaking dosen’t seem to fit right in to your worldview, even though you, being a extremely stringintely amolst-self-described authoritarian hardcore socialist and total anti-capitalist, would’ve supposedly have zero rationale to defend a private corporation
All of which is why it seems to me that you attempted to utilize an argument you pulled out of left-field that’s based entirely in actual inconsequential whataboutism to manipulate the conversation for your own convenience. Which is anything but appreciated.

I’m just glad it took NFTs for that house of cards to fall.
Crypto used to be an interesting exercise in speculative and alternative currency. But then those damn monkeys happened and now people see the scam for what it is.

Yes.
For those who were worried if Ye was a Nazi, I got some bad news. He just appeared on Alex Jones’ show.
“You’re not Hitler, you’re not a Nazi, you don’t deserve to be called that and demonized,” Jones told Ye,
“Well, I see good things about Hitler also. I love everyone,” Ye said in response while wearing a fully hooded mask on the set of Jones’s show. “And Jewish people are not going to tell me you can love us, and you can love what we’re doing to you with the contracts, and and you can love what we’re pushing with the pornography” while also condemning Hitler, he added, saying “you can’t say out loud that this person ever did anything good, and I’m done with that.”
“Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler,” Ye continued. “Also Hitler was born Christian.”
As the show headed to a commercial break, Jones told Ye he had a “Hitler fetish,” to which Ye responded, “I like Hitler.”
Ye also said he does “not like the word evil next to Nazis” after Jones pushed back on some of his assertions, saying, “I love Jewish people, but I also love Nazis.”
As Jones was visibly uncomfortable and Fuentes watched with a grin, Ye pulled out a bottle of Yahoo chocolate drink and a small net he indicated represented Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, mimicking him in a high-pitched voice saying, “We have to control the history books. We have to control the banks. And we have to go and kill people.”
So yeah. Ye does loves everyone! Especially Hitler! But not Jews. Jews are worse than Hitler.

“Also Hitler was born Christian.”
From what I’ve heard, Hitler used Christianity as a rally flag rather than being one himself.
And got to love how even Alex Jones is uncomfortable with all of this. Imagine if this causes Jones to rethink his life and confess to all his crimes after realizing this is the party he has been sucking on all these years.

That’s probably the worst part.
Ye is genuinely gifted at his art. He’s not some nobody punkass who thinks swastikas makes him edgy. His talent and fame mean he’s an inspiration for millions of impressionable youths needing a hero.
So imagine how much betrayal, or worse, continued inspiration, he is towards his fans while he’s on his “Hitler is my Lord and Savior” tour.

In other news, the House of Representatives has passed 2 legislations on the upcoming Rail Worker Strike.
The first one was that Congress would engage in strike busting is the workers did it. Yep that’s right, the government will force you to work at gunpoint if it has to. Literally. Good thing we abolished slavery but not really, amirite?
The second one was that Rail Companies would be forced to provide their workers with a 7 day paid sick leave in their contracts. Literally the entire thing the workers have been threatening a strike over.
Now both legislations go to the Senate for their vote. The first one, the Slavery Is A Strong Word bill, is sure to pass. The second one, the Literally Only Thing Workers Are Asking For bill, is not expected to reach the 60 votes needed.
Joy.

Chinese citizens reporting to the Corona camps
Looks like the CCP is beginning to deal with those who are protesting the lockdowns. Including beatings. One camp being built at Guangzhou has 90,000 isolation pods (and another was set on fire). And yeah they’re welding/boarding shut doors on people’s houses again.
And it turns out people were able to organize the protests thanks to Apple’s Air Drop app. All it took was one call from the commies and Apple blocked the app in China, so now the protesters don’t have a secure communication.

Some European Union leader was talking about “100,000 dead Ukrainians”, and the Putinist mob went out spamming that number to force people to surrender to Russia.
I did read before that this number actually included wounded soldiers, so it’s an inflated troll spam.

Update: As expected, the Senate passed the legislation to make the upcoming Rail Strike illegal.
Also expected, the 7 day paid sick leave legislation passed with 52 votes…but was 8 short of bypassing the filibuster.
So yeah. Pinkertons are gonna be back in business on the 13th.

That’s not very nice to suggest they are lying without anything to back this up.
Once again, despite the obvious flaws in fiat currency, the alternative should not be to invest in environmentally devastating magical beep-boop bucks.
Crypto can go proof of stake (normal energy use) instead of proof of work (humongous energy use). But the problem is that crypto was meant to be a currency, but people are treating it like an investment, digital gold.

In many European countries saying this shit would be borderline illegal.

I don’t understand. 7 days of paid leave a year that requires a paper from a doctor is not that much to ask. And if someone is sick, they are not doing their best work anyway. Unlike for example raises, it shouldn’t be a big blow to these companies.

Oh it gets dumber the more you learn about it. The rail companies offered several different contracts, including one that gives like an immediate 11% pay raise that is retroactive, meaning not only do they get a raise going forward they get several thousand dollars immediately upfront. The unions rejected them, saying “We just want sick days.”
Someone did the math on the companies total earnings for the years and even showed that giving the 11,000 or so rail worders a full 7 days off for sickness would only cost the companies like 2% of their yearly profits. Not total revenue, their profits. But the companies refuse to give them that.

@MethidMan, @Meanlucario, @Dustcan
This is what I don’t understand. They are dealing with mass protests and yet they cling to this tiny, insignificant thing and are even offering things that would cost them more. Surely, 7 days of pay is less than 11% of yearly pay. And it’s not even guaranteed that an employee will use all 7 days. I can comprehend mistreating people for company’s gain, but I can’t comprehend mistreating people for company’s loss.

The sad part is even if they do lose money from it, they’ll find some loophole that allows them to pin all the blame on either the workers or the consumers, while they get off scott-free and ready to perform their next scam.
It’s a common tactic that the capitalist pigs in charge of these specific companies always use. The only time they ever actually LEARN from their mistakes is when they f##k up so badly that they’re on the verge of bankruptcy.
