Pretty sure the voice on Samoa is motivated by what happened to Hawaii

tacocat  ·  19 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: House Democrats poised to pass DC statehood bill

I don't know that Samoa could do anything about becoming a state but they have weird land ownership laws that would be unconstitutional under statehood and a lot of the locals prefer the system they have

Encapsulating the discourse experience on Twitter is impossible. This post has a backstory related to a different dumbass post by the person quoted

Kinda recently heard this story and sharing because just read it

I'm sure his take on porn sucks ass for multiple reasons

His exchange with Lin Manuel Miranda in 90% baby talk makes me want to never read again.

I also only skimmed it after reading the first paragraph and realizing this is a man who is paid to write

Bernie critics: his base is a bunch of cultists no different than Trump's

Bernie voices an unpopular opinion

Bernie's base: this man is dead to me

Bernie critics: this is cult behavior

Sure. Whatever

tacocat  ·  32 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Internet Archive Will End Its Program for Free E-Books

Uh oh. Theoretical dessert based attack

This seems a little weird but also Chuck Wendig went private which might be the problem

Dropping the only entertaining segment Live PD has produced. When some bro decided to get arrested on purpose

For levity and stuff

I'm not sure I haven't watched one of them in jail

tacocat  ·  36 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: 'Cops,’ Long-Running Reality Show That Glorified Police, Is Canceled

Cops and Live PD are surprisingly popular among people in drug and alcohol treatment and I've never understood why anyone enjoys those shows, let alone people who've been in similar situations

Blue MAGA babey

When your privilege allows your politics to be as important to you as team sports

The new mask trend in my area is wearing it on your chin. Which apparently isn't uncommon. We've had a few thousand new cases since reopening

An XM dj said Pharrell wrote the chorus of Ju$t and it's hard to square that in my head with Happy and the Arby's hat. But respect to him. Failure on my part

tacocat  ·  37 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Minneapolis Votes to Disband Police Department

I successfully used the police to get my dad to turn down his fucking Jimmy Buffet he was blasting out of his outdoor speakers

Other than that I've had no positive experience outside of getting off with a warning, but one of those times it was after being detained and having them search my car because they were bored. I also had another warning that would have ended with me being dumped across the county line if they saw me again.

Did a quick revisit of System of a Down. The first album is not as good as I remember

The second is better than I remember

I just kinda sampled some songs. I think they still hold up. One of the few bands from high school I don't hate

They were mad at him for telling them not to employ racist violence as a strategy and saw an opportunity

The same day Arthur Laffer decides to remind everyone that he's a big brain boy who works for Trump now

The psychology of a person who wants to be a police officer is the psychology of a person who wants to have a legal mandate to inflict harm. They're in hog heaven right now

I don't know if I've told this story here before in as many details but my ex's ex husband successfully bullied her back into a marriage through stalking and property destruction. He found a couple pictures I'd taken of their dogs while at the house he got in a no contest divorce in a group of like 200 pictures on an unpopular photo license website. He committed felony property destruction that included destroying prescription medicine and eyeglasses after finding out I was still in a relationship with his ex wife. He's likely run illegal background checks on me. Just complete psycho shit
