Compost is a fantastic tool that can help us balance the . The more we talk about it, the more we can inspire people to start this wonderful habit.

Our habits make us, and talking about positive habits is a good thing in the toxic environment social media can be.

Some have themes like art, politics, literature. Some have a few users, some have hundreds of thousands. Close to 14M users total. All can be connected via the fediverse. Some have created functionality that allows connections to other platforms, like Threads, or that is similar to other platforms, like Youtube.

@futurebird It seems like more people in AI high places should have foreseen the problem. I know many of us down here with the plebes thought it would have an impact.

    You would never find a Republican president onstage with Donald Trump.

    You also won't find his own vice president of four years.

    You won't find his first, second or third secretary of defense.

    You won't find his secretary of states, you won't find his secretary of treasury.
    You won't find Elaine Chao onstage with him.

    You won't find any CIA directors on stage with him.

    You won't find 20, 25, 30 of his top people onstage with him because they all say he is bad for America.

    What a contrast, what a great point for you to bring up.

    I’m exhausted, still. Yet. Again.
    Energy limiting Chronic illnesses are a REAL bitch.
    I had appointments every day last week, plus going to see Al.
    This week only one.
    Next week, five days, five appointments.
    These are all medically necessary or I wouldn’t be stretching myself past the limit.

    Uh-oh. Devout Christians on my FB page are PISSED that Trump is selling bibles. This is their straw. It will be fascinating to watch if its the straw that brings his run down.

    Here’s a sample:
    “As a follower of Jesus I am both disgusted and offended that any politician would sell the Word of God to raise money!!!! How about it my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ? Enough is enough 😡”

    TammyGentzel,
    @TammyGentzel@awscommunity.social avatar

    @JonChevreau I wish I could answer those questions. Many have quoted Mathew 21: 12-13: “Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. And He said to them, “It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of thieves. '” As though this act has tipped Trump into a place of transgression that his other actions did not.

    The funniest thing about Donald Trump is that he is so routinely honest in public—“I will be a dictator,” “there will be violence if I lose”—and yet the majority of people are so concerned about decorum, so terrified of appearing to overreact, that the American political system just plods along as if he hadn’t said what he said.

    TammyGentzel,
    @TammyGentzel@awscommunity.social avatar

    @HeavenlyPossum And among those I know who discount these statements, there are many who say 1. He’s just exaggerating and doesn’t mean any of it; 2. He’s just saying out loud what others say behind closed doors, so why hold it against him; 3. No, it doesn’t matter that it’s all written down in the Project 2025 document because no one is going to allow any of that to happen.

    Long night so far.

    A call from my sister just after midnight that she’d taken mum to the hospital.

    Been holding bedside vigil while sister goes home and gets some sleep. Doctors running tests and whatnot. Morphine for the pain. Machines that go “bing”.

    It’s about 4:30am and mum’s snoring with a plethora of tubes and wires.

    Eyes are heavy. Chair is uncomfortable. The nurses showed me where I could make a cup of coffee for myself.

    Some on Mastodon just love to take a tiny sliver of good news and turn it into doom or cheap shots.

    I’m done w/ people who do that.

    I’m fine with genuine RATIONAL POLITE disagreements or criticism. I have to point that out since I’ve been accused of/blocked for intolerance of diff opinions👈🏼which I’ve always welcomed

    This is about mudslinging, labels, name-calling, misinfo, & disdain for scarce positives & replying w something designed to provoke &/or kneejerk-negate welcome news. Kthxbye.

    TammyGentzel,

    @GottaLaff This cry of “foul,” my opinions are being blocked remind me of politicians and pundits who are “silenced” for sharing lies as though they are truth. I want to say, “Oh, honey, it’s not your opinions that are being blocked. It’s your lies, your misdirections, and your bullying.”
