The landscape is definitely changing. It's quiet, but something does seem to be happening. At the very least, Red shaming stopped being an effective firewall while no one was paying attention.
Lee Carter sang Solidarity Forever to celebrate victory. The Democrats are still busy rending themselves apart, and that opens the door to the left hijacking more of their ballot lines.
Locally, two of the three city council candidates I supported won. The one I was most excited about managed to net herself a four year term. Went from being the fourth place vote getter in the primary to second in the general.
- I say all of this to say that while I have not identified as a democratic socialist in the past, I would be honored to have the support of the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. To me, being a socialist means acknowledging, confronting, and demanding reparations for social inequalities in no uncertain terms.
Lee Carter, one of the people politico used for their "Could America’s Socialists Become the Tea Party of the Left?" bit?
It's not all riding coat tails of the Democratic party either. Ginger Jentzen straight up ran on the Socialist Alternative ballot line and did pretty damn well.
170,000 caps in the waste of 2019.
Spotify really doesn't do them justice. It's kinda like what I've imagined Pfunk shows being like. George Clinton & co. have played here twice in the past five years and we've missed them both times because of family.

I hate buying shit online. Especially when it gets shipped via my work.
I've seen so many boxes of fasteners get destroyed during shipping. Hardly anyone packages them stout enough.
As it is, I've already got an air shipment that's Late By Day because it sat for 20~ish hours in our flagship facility thanks to "operational conditions". My 1 meter aluminum extrusions are coming in a different shipment via fucking ground service, so I give it 50/50 odds that they're bent.
On the other hand, I had one package come via amazon's private vehicle delivery drivers. Took less than six hours to reach me, shipping was free, the box was pristine, and the lady was stressed as fuck.
