Please help us in Ohio. We have a special election Aug 8 to drown democracy and need help to drive turnout to vote NO on their scheme to make it almost impossible to get citizen led issues on the ballot.
Please go to postcardstovoters.org and choose the Ohio campaign!
WE NEED YOU!!
This will help protect choice in November! The August election is a way for our corrupt Rs to subvert democracy.
Game help, please. Dad is stuck in hospital in US & bored out of his mind. I’m in UK. Need a turn taking game (like words with friends, but he hates word games).
He loves traditional games like dominoes & cards, but would like something new. He’s very unwell, anything complicated will go in the bin. His vision is ok, but tiny text will be a problem. We both have an iPhone.
Retoots with helpful hashtags very appreciated thank you, I don’t know what to type
Doing some research and came across this image. For those not aware, curb cuts were first installed en masse after the large number of injured veterans came back from WWII. #accessibility

@markmetz @lednabm John Malcolm, a former Atlanta-based federal prosecutor who is now a constitutional scholar at the conservative Heritage Foundation. “That’s it. It’s very broad. That doesn’t mean it’s appropriate to charge a former president…”
Just why would it not be appropriate to charge a former president? Nobody is above the law. If a former President is suspected to be a criminal, then he should be charged, arrested, and tried in court. If found guilty, he should be sentenced and punished.
In fact, I would argue that as a former President, he is the MOST appropriate person to be charged. Politicians are supposed to protect the public interest, and if they are not, then they should be exposed and face the consequences to make clear that this is a national of laws.
Someone found a part of a #Mastodon on the beach here in #California (no, not a Mastodon server, the original elephant-like things) https://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20230602/p2g/00m/0sc/016000c
You know. Today really cemented why even though I've had a bluesky invite for several weeks now I haven't used it
See. Today some pro life asshole came in and started concern trolling me. And then I found out he came from an instance of Christians who were all very sad their chicken sandwich place wasn't bigoted enough against gays anymore
And despite the fact that I'm just a user the things I could do to keep myself and my community safe were
1. Block the guy and his entire instance
2. Notify my server's mods so they could decide to silence or defederate (they did)
3. Make a post recommending other users vulnerable to their bullshit instance block them
4. Recommend that mods/admins from other instances silence/defederate
In essence, I encountered a problem on the fediverse and could take decisive action to protect myself and others by having the problem yeeted into the void. One minute I had a problem, the next myself and many others didn't. You just don't get that anywhere else
You lovely people want to know who voted which way?
Because I like you best, here’s a WaPo GIFT LINK
BU President whines about dissent, calls it "cancel culture"
Read an article today about why Americans think alcohol has health benefits and it's apparently another "well the French are healthy and they do X so it's healthy to do X."
So here's your periodic reminder that France (and Italy, and Sweden, and Japan, and basically every country you've seen in a "this country is so healthy, what's their secret?" headline) has universal health care.
The secret is access to health care. It's always access to health care.
