Pinned toot

I don't know if this belongs here or not - it was my cheat project. When we bought our current house we needed a buffet for this niche in the dining room, but couldn't find anything we liked and fit and could afford. So I cheated. 3 custom kitchen cabinets screwed together, and I built the top and base out of a matching maple. I thought it would do until we found something. That was 20 years ago.

Hunter Biden's legal team is on the offensive, demanding state & federal investigations into the dissemination of material from his laptop, & threatening a defamation lawsuit against Fox's Tucker Carlson for allegedly failing to correct false statements.

@PeggyJoan I think I'm going to go with an outfit consisting of:

A skirt precisely one inch above the knee, in the loudest pattern I can find. A high-necked T-shirt with no writing, possibly with holes in - this does not seem to be specified. Men's shoes, with socks. Neon ones preferably. Plus leggings worn as a hat.

When I get impatient that my doggo wants to sniff everything on our walks, I remember that this is his social media and he’s just doomscrolling.

The 117th Congress was Democratic with President Biden signing bills into law. Congress was able to pass a $35 monthly cap on insulin for Medicare patients and some other limited price controls on prescription drugs, but it doesn't help privately insured or uninsured patients. Unfortunately, there's still the filibuster and not even all 50 Senate Democrats (we have 51 now :fetterman2:​) are fully on board with all pharma bills. (The Manchin family has pharma involvement, of course.)

Here comes California to the rescue with a plan to make its own insulin. Insulin is cheap to make but the three big pharma companies keep finding ways to extend their patents by creating new delivery methods. California plans to hire state employees to make the insulin and sell it at cost. (Good state jobs!). California can then sell it to other states. There's precedent; Massachusetts makes its own vaccines.

Pharma claims it likes competition but wait for the lawsuits.

First they came for the Fascists, and I did not speak outβ€”because I was not a Fascist.

Then, after the Fascists were gone, we all had a really great time and things were very cool, would recommend.

It sure sounds like Donald just admitted to the whole Stormy Daniels scandal in his latest bizarre social media post.
And Stormy wasted no time in mocking him for it. πŸ™Œ

America welcomes you, Mr. President.

Good morning, the empty bookshelves in Florida schools keep my head busy, since I'm a teacher with a library in my classroom in Berlin myself. That's a history lesson in front of our very eyes and exactly how fascism started in Germany. Books were banned and then burnt and everyone said, well, I can't do anything, I don't want to loose my job, I don't like it, but... Many little steps were made by many little people who didn't stand up against a new little rule. You know how this ends.

If you have a #NewYorkTimes subscription, you are personally financing the rise of fascism. Please take a moment to reconsider what you are doing.

@matty @resonancewright @KimSJ @RealityGlimpses @golfhaus @NoctisEqui @TheSaanichDaily @therobburgessshow "come almost exclusively from upper middle and upper class" describes a wide variety of occupations, from university professors to NGO wonks to politicians. To break a glass ceiling is to break a glass floor. More to the point, nobody breaks out of the bottom quintile w/o someone falling into it.

We understand that even one day of delay takes someone's lifeπŸ’” Our defenders are not just soldiers, their families are waiting for them at home, who are waiting every day for news that they're alive.
