Swiss people voted to allow gay people marry or adopt children. I still can't understand why something as personal as this should be up to other people to decide. That's why democracy sucks.

still hard to believe that i dated someone when i was younger whose favorite fictional character was batman, should have seen the red flags 😔

i wanna see batman get his ass alley-whooped by a group of disgruntled low-wage ex-employees.

Imagine if Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos decided they were going to use their wealth to build a private control center for their surveillance networks, hire an engineer form Lockheed martin to make them specialty weapons, pay a cosplay artist to make them a funny suite, and then start doing vigilante patrols to attack the marginalized.

That's why Batman sucks.

Reading so much thoughtful and challenging stuff today.

Mutual Aid, A Factor of Liberalism: regenerationmag.org/mutual-aid

"Proclaiming “solidarity, not charity!” doesn’t actually put you in a position of solidarity with the people you claim to fight for, solidarity isn’t about service, it’s about reciprocal defense of each other because we are in the same social position. It also means “skin in the game”, you’re all in it together. ..."

If I create some pre-built meshtastic devices with nice cases would people in Portland be interested in buying them for ~$50 (that's cost)?

It's a little pocket size radio, with a battery that lasts 9 years, and if the grid ever goes down (or just for fun), you can: turn it on, connect up your phone/computer, and chat with other people on the network with a range of miles.

That perspective change might not seem like a big deal, but there is a subconscious thing that happens when you see things from the cops perspective. You start to make sense of a situation as if you were the cop. If you are watching a cop from outside, then you see them through a lens of someone on the street.

bodycams 

filming the police has arguably resulted in more cops being held accountable, but that has always been with the camera pointing at the cops not the cops pointing cameras at the public.

Bodycams build a surveillance database for cops who can selectively decide to release info to the public. Yes there is FOIA, but that process rarely results in a timely release of unedited video. Even then it's all from the cops perspective. It puts you in the shoes of a cop.

pdx / vaccination clinic for outer SE 

There is a vaccine clinic on 09/22 at the SE campus of PCC. If you show up you get a visa gift card ($100 for first dose / $50 for second), and food boxes are available if you need some groceries.

If you are already vaccinated and can give someone a ride to the site to get vaccinated you get $50 (you could also give this to the person who is getting the shot if you don't need it).

The world would be a better place if the press never showed up or wrote about leftist actions. We should bring back screaming "fuck corporate media" and maybe photo bombing photographers pictures with obscene signs or something to make their "content" unusable.

goddammit how many times do i have to say it, just because i’m pointy doesn’t mean i’m straight

Pro tip for copwatching or really just daily life: get comfortable speaking the phrase "I'm not interested in having a conversation"
