KKKlanadian Border Services seizing @subMedia merch as "seditious material" definitely makes an argument for punk mail

Also I'm curious if they targeted particular stuff or if it was just "oh these guys, let's toss it all in the bin" bc you know i want the extra-seditious merch

maybe there's a "officially declared seditious by the KKKlanadian government" fundraiser in here somewhere

On Friday, "July 29, 2022, about 40 people opposed to 'Cop City' disrupted work at a Brasfield & Gorrie (B&G) construction site in Atlanta, GA." (video too big to upload but available at nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553)

"@brasfieldgorrie is the general contractor building the Atlanta Police Foundation's Public Safety Training Center, termed 'Cop City' by critics." (nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553)

"The disruption took place at B&G's work site for the Georgia State University Convocation Center, which is unrelated to 'Cop City.'" (nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553)

""Hey, Brasfield & Gorrie, know that until you drop your contract, we'll continue to come to your places of work and to your homes and try to get you to do what's right," yelled one of the protesters during the work disruption." (nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553)

"After dispersing, seven protesters were arrested by Georgia State University Police. They remained in custody overnight and at this time may still be awaiting bail." (nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553)

"In September 2021, Atlanta’s City Council approved the proposal to construct the 85-acre police training facility within Atlanta's urban forest for a hefty $90 million." (nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553)

"On May 17, law enforcement from several jurisdictions, including SWAT teams with rifles, conducted a raid on the burgeoning autonomous zone within the Atlanta Forest, arresting eight people and destroying six treehouses and other protest infrastructure. unicornriot.ninja/2022/police-" (nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553)

I have a peach tree but the crop is destroyed every year by insects. I stuck a bird feeder by it, and now birds hang out there and eat all the insects. Perfect 🍑 this year.

How many friends have to be banned from twitter before your average leftist will consider moving

Wired headphones are far better than wireless.

Just got notice that they went from stage 2 of water conservation to stage 5 and a boil water notice.

if your water company needs to increase restrictions due to people unwilling to just not water a lawn means its a good day to let it die.

Usually I'd advocate burning it but due to drought conditions that would cause a bigger problem.

raising mushrooms in a drought might be unsustainable 

I'm feeling like raising mushrooms in a drought might be unsustainable. Their logs take a lot more water than plants. The mycelia has to grow a web through the entire log, which has to stay wet by watering if there's no rain. In this summer heat, that's up to twice a week and up to ten minutes!

So Twitter has suspended my account for an older thread about mental health, in which I said that supporting people who are suicidal means recognizing that suicide is a legitimate option rather than stigmatizing it or pressuring them to pretend they're okay. It was about support with dignity and they banned me under their rule against inciting suicide. They can't tell the difference between bullying high schoolers and saying out loud that certain feelings are legitimate. More stigmatization.

retelling this story with some words changed:

there is a book fair. it is an anarchist book fair. a place for anarchists to share books. but one day someone else turns up: a tankie. the anarchists don’t want to cause a scene so they let it go. what does one tankie matter anyway? except, the next time they run the book fair, the tankie returns. this time the tankie brings a friend. now there’s two tankies. still, the anarchists don’t want confrontation at their book fair, so they let it go. the third time the anarchists run the book fair, the tankie returns, this time with another friend, and each of those friends brings a friend too. there’s a lot of tankies been coming to these book fairs, so most of the anarchists that would come, don’t come anymore. the few anarchists who are left look around and see that now there is a book fair. it’s a tankie book fair.
