(Also mention on page of common racist fuckery that you might remember from the news.)

"This summer, Chikesia [Clemons] is running for Prichard city council. Prichard is a poverty-stricken city of 22,000 people, one-third whom live below the poverty line, including half of the children. The median home values and incomes are half the Alabama state average..."

I have another small art project on the back burner. If you're comfortable with languages besides English, I'd love your help with it:

What's the most coherent and/or poetic way to translate the following sentence:

"Will the rose survive?"

I know online translators exist, but they're not always sufficient.

Thanks in advance. ☕

US Pol - "Friendly Fascism" 

Without anti-militarism (or anti-interventionism) your anti-fascism is doomed to be as frail and hollow as a blown-out egg. :(

Neolib trolls are so weak that they can't even take 2 mins. to put 1 damn thing in their YT accounts. JFC. How hard is it? Grab a badly-miked Korn clip from 2001... Footage of gulls stealing jimmies off a tourist's vanilla cone... Paula Deen in her terrible Scarlett O'Hara cosplay. Anything. Show me you care, you hopeless dinks. 🙄

I know there are cats out there who get upset if their human moves a folding chair 1' across the room. But El Sid watches me switch stuff around so I can sweep the floor, and his whole shtick is, "Neat. How can I best exploit this in order to have myself some big fun AND make the human lose her silly mind for DAYS?"

“Tick Tock 2” - Square w/watery, streaky leaf-green background. Pink square over it: pinched to look like an unfolded kerchief. Watery pinks over it w/piped edge. 4 green leaf round “tokens,” one at ea. corner. Diamond shape inside in off-white has bust of a 1950s male figure in a pink-checked shirt & dk. hair. His 3/4-view head/face is mostly obscured by 2 opalescent copies of a white clock face showing 20 after 8.

US Pol - Eugenics 

Wow. That scrotum-faced Yuppie Left-punching toad who runs Vox is bonding w/a RWing counterpart while they weep about how we're not out-breeding the Chinese. Who's surprised that this would become a thing, after decade upon decade of Dems coddling fetus-worshipers in their own ranks? Not to mention twiddling their thumbs as state after state lost any real access to abortion? 🖕

im a filthy gremlin because cleanliness is next to godliness and I hate god

uspol, rent 

hey, if you live in an area where the rents have been hyper-inflated? might want to hold off on signing a lease, especially if they're offering bullshit "market" rate rents.

check what's actually being offered in your area, and weigh that against your needs.

this is on top of negotiating your monthly rent due to covid

My boss: "Jonathan C., you CAN'T call in sick to work just because the cat won't let you finish sweeping the floor!!"

Me: "Oh, yeah. Just watch me! Power to the mammals!"

"Oh, wow. Now the kitchen stools are *right up against* the row of hanging coats! I'm gonna' jump up here and try to climb the coats and reach the ceiling and-- oh, wait. I just ripped the lining out of that barn jacket and fell down. Well, whatever. That's cool, too. Now let me try again and see if I can bring down the whole rack. Yee haw!" 🐾

"How dare you go to my main page, find out my account is completely empty apart from my generic Neolib trolling of your channel, and call me a troll! I think it's YOU that's the real troll! Waste your life debating my warmed-over Brock-ian bullshit right now or I'll cry! I mean it!!"

Get down if you can

It's the last day of summer. Fall equinox is tomorrow. :pinkleaf:

uspol / RBG 

sorry all. The news this morning is a love fest for RBG, and it's making me mad. At least they called out the fact that she:
* supported building pipelines
* supported deportation of asylum seekers
* only had one Black staffer
* called Kaepernick's kneeling protest "dumb"
* is a product of the progressive movement in the 1940s and '50s
Still, this newscast is too much and making me have opinions

instance block recommendation, zoophilia 

paws.moe

another pleroma instance with wide open federation

and as a fun extra bit, the people running it keep talking about dog-fucking? Which, even assuming they are just "shitposting", is just a bit fucking much, isn't it

US Pol - Protests, Fash, Mythos 

Dems rely on L.E. as their "impartial" arbiter. All the while L.E. slides its own fascist mask a little further off w/every passing month. But sure. I'll put my faith in Dems lol

Dem Gov. Brown's reaction (or lack of it) to the GOP walkout in Salem just before COVID hit is super-instructive in this regard. Dems don't grasp/don't care that their reliance on law-and-order shit cancels out their own professed ideals. They either can't or won't confront this dilemma.
