💛 “Love One Another (2024)”

Let’s stop the denials, the what-aboutism, and the gaslighting and get about the real business of dismantling racism and extending the love of Christ to everyone.

Well, today we returned our 11 foster puppies to the SPCA so they can be readied for adoption down the road! We had them for 6 weeks until they were weened - 11 puppies from birth to 6 weeks was an experience- fun to play and snuggle with them but a heck of a lot of work caring for 11 poop machines 😂😂😂❤️! So long little ones…

    @keith @Jaden3 I feel terrible that my fellow Americans are likely to give us the hideous choice between 2 old codgers with significant mental degradation - one is actually evil, so it looks like it’s my only choice to vote for the Dem

    Welp, Linux Mint LMDE just does not like my hardware. I couldn't successfully get through updates due to "Unknown key type PC_SUPER_LEVEL2" errors popping up all over the place, breaking GRUB and some other things. I decided to give Pop!_OS another whirl on this machine.

    As a reader, do you prefer when people give you random books as gifts, or do you prefer getting a gift card to a bookstore (so you can pick the book)? Just curious.

    Unless I’m asked about a specific book, I prefer the bookstore card 📚

    One of the most conservative Democrats in the House, Jared Golden from Maine, has apologized for opposing a ban on assault weapons in the wake of the deadly shootings in his state. It shouldn’t have to take a tragedy in your own state to come around, but we welcome Rep. Golden in the fight to ban these weapons.

    @georgetakei we cannot ban them without confiscating them, or it doesn’t work

    Mark Meadows just flipped.

    Ex-Chief of staff Mark Meadows just flipped.

    Ex-Chief of staff Mark Meadows who exchanged texts with 34 members of congress to overthrow the government then later burned piles of evidence just flipped.

    He testified under oath at least three times already

    2x before the special counsel’s office
    1x to a grand jury

    Trump suspected Mark Meadows would flip on him

    Hey look, Trump was right about something!

    Here is the HK side of the story..

    US Republican Senator Jeff Wilson arrested over carrying gun into Hong Kong, barred from leaving city.

    Carrying arms without a license is punishable by up to 14 years in jail and a fine of HK$100,000, but cases heard at magistrates courts see a maximum jail term of two years for a single offence.

    Police were called when Wilson and friends started acting out like Ugly Americans making threats outside of the courthouse.

    14 years 😂
