I wonder what the Venn Diagram is between "no, I do not own an Amazon Alexa" and "no, I do not own any printer manufactured after 1998"

small personal update, politics thereof 

I really do think a comprehensive & compassionate social safety net in the USA could potentially spark a golden age (in the Civ sense) if given enough time to get set up and refine the technique of actually helping people out.

I feel like my entire experience since 2012 has been molding me into more and more of a Berniecrat type. I dunno.

if I do ever have "disposable income" again, a much bigger percentage of it is going to get donated to agencies that I find are effective at helping out people who are in a jam. I definitely gave back when I had money, but not enough.

now granted I had to ring the bell pretty hard at the community health center before all this started happening, but when I've been poor before in other places, none of this bureaucratic machinery even *existed* to help anyone, or if it did, it didn't really function, and you were more or less on your own to navigate all of it, with plenty of pitfalls along the way.

I just have to reiterate how much better social services are where I'm living now compared to where I've lived before.

I still don't know what will happen in a couple weeks, part of that's on me because I'm working thru issues in contacting friends who might be able to help.

however. it is honestly so relieving to get calls on a quick turnaround time from various agencies making sure that at least I'm not hungry, and that I could get a ride to the market if I needed.
