Well, now that I’ve got my spiffy new burner phone set up (it’s so our weekend, evening, and early morning shifters can call me without me giving out my phone number … I’m so exciting) … I can finally get back to the very serious task of making silly t-shirts.
Los Angeles police officers tampered with voice recording equipment in dozens of patrol cars in an effort to avoid being monitored while on duty
An inspection by Los Angeles Police Department investigators found about half of the estimated 80 cars in one South L.A. patrol division were missing antennas, which help capture what officers say in the field. The antennas in at least 10 more cars in nearby divisions had also been removed.
“LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and other top officials learned of the problem last summer but chose not to investigate which officers were responsible.”
If you blame Native American communities for their poverty, remember that the entire continent was stolen from them.
If you blame Black American communities for their relative poverty, remember that Black Americans were stolen from a continent, trafficked, and enslaved for nearly 300 years.
Tell me again about how your family ‘started from nothing’ when they immigrated. Didn’t they start from whiteness? Seems like a pretty good start.
The American Dream required dual genocides, but tell me again about fairness and equal opportunity. Tell me about democracy, modeled after the Iroquois Confederacy. Tell me your proud heritage, and I will show you the violence that made it so.
News: Fear replaced communal atmosphere in Donetsk’s Jewish community as armed men handed out a leaflet Passover eve calling on Jews register their religion and property with the interim pro-Russian government or face deportation and loss of citizenship.
I’m scared of what would happen after they register…
I googled it. Multiple news sources are covering this. This is actually happening. This is terrifying.
My first thought is that this would lead to something bigger. I don’t know if it would be on the scale of the Holocaust, but registering of Jews was an early part of it.

Modern English - I Melt With You
In other news, surprise me. Successfully elect me president. XD
Like you can totally vote for me. That would be ok. But I think we all understand I’m unlikely to win.
However, we could totally pressure the candidates to swear they’ll all do exactly what I promise to do if I become president. It’s much more likely to succeed and, even if it doesn’t, it will raise a huge amount of awareness and potentially open other avenues for justice.
So, let’s do the thing, ok?
I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn’t know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.
