Senate Dems (looking at you, Durbin and Schumer) must immediately open an investigation and haul Roberts, Thomas and Alito in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Enough already.

@Karoli Yes!! The situation is out of hand and we cannot wait around for Roberts to act. He’s just hoping for a GOP win so he can forget about all of SCOTUS’s dirty laundry being exposed. What corruption?

Busy day today, folks, so I'll be posting only when I can.

PODzilla is coming with POD #2 any minute, and picking up POD #1

Meeting with our realtor to brainstorm on selling our HouseWithoutAFingPool.

Our twins will be in from Canada this afternoon to help us schlep furniture into POD #2.

Boring life, huh?

In my household I am the fixit engineer and IT support. My brain just works that way, maybe because my dad’s an engineer and my mom was a computer programmer. But no matter how often I design a solid plan to address an issue that needs fixing, my husband offers an infeasible, alternate plan and then argues with me to defend it.

Most recently, he went with ‘his plan’ that ended up torquing the hinges on my SUV’s lift gate. Now he has to take it in for repair because it won’t shut/lock.

2/2

We had an argument over securing the lift gate while he drives it 30 miles to the repair shop. He insisted on an unworkable solution until I demanded it be secured as I’d planned.

There are lots of things he’s good at that I am not. So why be like this? Why must some men* argue over things they think are ‘male territory’ as if it’s impossible that a woman may actually have a better understanding of the problem/solution? I’ll never bend to that ideology.

*I know not all men are like this.

I can’t believe we’re still trusting tech bros to sell us new “products” after they’ve shown what a buncha reprehensible bullshitters, grifters, and con-artists they all are.

Musk, Zuckerberg, Neumann, Dorsey, Pichai, Bankman-Fried, Thiel, Andreeson, Kalanick, Bezos, Altman… the list is too long.

Let’s stop helping these guys become zillionaires. They’re hastening our demise and we keep buying their crap.

In talking with my dad* about the Israel’s attacks on Gaza and the US government’s continued support for Netanyahu, he responded, “Israel is our only reliable ally in the Middle East. We will stay loyal to them to protect our oil interests [aka: oil companies] above all else.”

That’s not to say we don’t have other interests with Israel, we do - but oil is a big one.

@Lizette603_23 My dad ran the crews that built and fixed nuclear subs during the Cold War. I grew up seeing posters on a family room wall identifying NATO military uniforms, tanks, planes, weaponry, and vehicles - and another poster for the same stuff for Russian and Chinese military.

Some things haven’t ever changed - except that now we have Republicans in Congress siding with Putin. That makes my dad’s blood boil. I can’t even discuss it with him, he gets so mad.

This is an honest question with only sincere interest behind it, but as a straight, white woman I understand my motives may be suspect, especially if you don’t already know me. So here goes…

“LGBTQ2S+” as a descriptive word to include lots of different people is unwieldy (sorry, English major here). Is it bad form to simply say “queer community” now? My favorite cousin came out in the 80s, so he’s an older gay man and may be out of touch. That’s the word he uses. Is it no longer acceptable?

KatM,
@KatM@mastodon.social avatar

@ttpphd Thanks, T.T. I understand there’s no monolith, nor should there be. I want to be thoughtful and supportive, as I have friends and family I love who thrive in their divergent lives. I don’t want to be disrespectful. I just wish there was a more universally acceptable word that doesn’t leave people out or is so difficult to say that one sounds like an ass trying to string it together. “Queer” is a lovely word, IMHO.

KatM,
@KatM@mastodon.social avatar

@ttpphd Thank you for your honest feedback. You may be the only person brave enough to respond to my question. My cousin uses “queer” because he lost friends to AIDS in San Francisco in the 80s. He said the haters tried to make it ugly. So in his view, he’s been reclaiming it for 40 years.

has gotten even worse! How is this possible, ?

Fix your shitty autocorrect! There’s no such thing at “there’re” so quit putting it into my content.

And how come I get a word suggestion as I type, I click on it, and an entirely different word is inserted that wasn’t even one of the options offered - sometimes not even an English word?!

🤯🤬😠😡😤

@peterbutler 😭 It didn’t use to be this bad. I’ve been on an iPhone since the first model. I loved them, even after trying Androids twice, I had to go back. But now? May as well use a flip phone.
