Anyone with a brain always knew it’d be the Right that would create actual Death Panels.

I knew a guy in North Florida who stole 13 cars in a single month. Last I heard, he was in jail for a very long time.
Much to the annoyance of American friends, I often cite how a middling European economy like Spain without a particularly sterling public sector produces infrastructure Americans can only dream about.
Madrid builds subways at $65 million per mile. New York? $2.6 billion. https://t.co/vscQz9nNs0

Traveling to many other countries feels like jumping 50 years into the future when you come from the US. It’s kind of shocking how bad we’ve let everything get when you see how it could be.
One of the main reasons I absolutely loathe the Fat Acceptance movement is this. I saw a family today when we were out where every single member was fat. The adults, I couldn’t care less. But I felt really sad for the kids who had this inflicted on them with no choice in the matter. They’re fucked for life now because they grew up in such a household.
The Fat Acceptance movement needs to be destroyed. It is a terrorist organization.
This is the other part of gentrification. My aunt had someone try to call the city & say her place was uninhabitable because they wanted to buy it and she wasn't selling. Black homeowners (especially seniors) are often pushed out by the new white neighbors through code tricks https://t.co/0rO8YzJOHR

Very common tactic, not just against Black people, but any poor people in general.
Security policies have essentially killed the user script and bookmarklet ecosystem. Most of the scripts you can find on the remaining sites like Greasy Fork only provide minor improvements.
FUCK YES. This was supposedly done for “security,” but really it was for ease of conning, snookering, and scamming the rubes. It’s all lies that these capabilities were removed to make things more secure. Well, true in a way, I guess: they were rooted out to make corporations and their scams more secure from you.
I was saddened by how even very many “smart” people bought into these obvious perfidies. Hell, the post to which I linked even buys into it even though it’s easily disproven.
Boomers who spent decades prohibiting construction of everything except large single family houses in their communities lament that they can’t find anything but large single family houses in their communities as they try to downsize now. https://t.co/QOpqw7QvFW

Yeah, funny how that worked out, huh?
1) Don’t be a dumbass.
2) Don’t do dumbass shit.
This captures the feel of Bunheads pretty well. It’s so much better than Gilmore Girls, so of course it only lasted two seasons. Dammit. Good show. I only started watching the show because Emma Dumont was in it, but then got caught up in their world and really enjoyed it.
