Now far be it from me to speculate as to why the context is assumed, but if I am to interpret this logically I am forced to presume the issue with "public safety" is tied to some quality undocumented folks are all presumed to possess.

Can we talk for a moment about the idiocy of old white men from developed nations who try to lecture the rest of the world about overpopulation without once addressing how they could be the solution? independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-n…
Like seriously, fuck David Attenborough’s opinion here. It’s the apotheosis of colonial paternalism. I mean are we really going to blame the developing world for problems that are clearly traceable back to western colonialism?

Also, she got to go inside

I’ve been thinking about this because one thing I’ve noticed is how every random person I’ve talked to this vacation has given me an unsolicited opinion which ultimately reveals some support for white supremacists.
Oh sure, they may not LIKE white supremacy. They may even hate the groups that marched in UTR. But always they profess to me some sympathy with fascism’s core tenets.

(THREAD) So now that the dust has cleared on the BronyCon announcement I feel like I have to give my hot take.
I mean, all the cool kids are so here we go.
I cannot tell you how many tweets I’ve seen either asking or answering the question “is the fandom dying?” And I can’t tell you how much I think that’s the wrong question to ask.

The last bidding war is literally between Batman and The Joker. It’s over the moderator’s hat. The ENTIRE auction is coming to Batman’s aid.
The “Justice League” takes the stage. #GalaCon2018

Yesterday I took to the land
Today I take to the water
I got to see a feathery friend too
He probably would have mauled me.

My office door has a frosted glass window in it, which means people are constantly standing less than 5 cm from the glass trying to peer inside.
Most likely people who are lost, I’m guessing.
I’m thinking about posting a sign outside: “The person or thing, you are looking for is not inside this room. Look elsewhere.”

Seeing all the police orgs in front of me right now reminds me of a line from one of my favorite songs: “You’re talking a lot, but you’re not saying anything.”
Also, I understand I have a naturally loud voice, but when I’m whispering to my friends, I don’t think that gives you license to angrily give me the hand symbol for “time out,” old white ladies.

🎵Oh city what a pity you don’t understand
You really seem to lack in respecting our demands
And council always claims it’s just out of their hands
Y’all need to change, council
Oh what ya do council, do council, you make me blue council🎵
Anyway, I’m here early and I have some brain droppings to leave.

So the ACSB claims they’re not voting on the dress code tonight??? We may have to return when these folks meet in August.
Okay, the ACSB agenda just says “info” on the dress code item. Not “action.”
Also they’re reading a ACHS climate survey saying that incidents of reported bullying dropped this past decade. I’m worried this is going to be used as backing to ignore the speakers tonight.

So I would like if I could to tweet something kind of weird, but I swear I'm going to try and make something of it so here I go...
I cannot get myself to believe in the existence of hammerhead sharks.
This is especially weird for me, because I have seen them.

CW for just general gross-ness in the attached messages.
So I'm late to the party here but I do want to point out how in 3 DMs Jason has managed to create a microcosm of fascist beliefs.
Same place, same reason.
Some signs are quite specific.

I’m coming to love the low-grade fear in the eyes of officials when they see a room full of activists staring them down.
I love it, and am confused by it. Like, what are they afraid of?
Like… are you afraid that I’m going to yell at them? I mean, I AM, but is that really something to be afraid of? That’s part of being a public official.

I’m 30 minutes early for the RWSA board meeting, which means I have plenty of time to sit alone in a big room stewing in the juices of my own thoughts.
Let’s see where this takes me.
I know that water resources really don’t seem like a big issue in context of everything happening right now. What with the injustices being doled our by the federal gov’t right now, and the sheer pain of many marginalized communities.
But it matters to me.

You have faith in the system. You believe that people really want to play fair. You hope that by playing by the rules you can win the game.
You’ve forgotten that the people who can write the rules are also playing the game.
I feel like that’s a big part of the calls for moderation. That rules provide “order” and that opposite of “order” is “chaos” so any rules are preferable to the alternative.
