To be clear: I reserve exactly the same amount of tooth & claw for left-wing authoritarians as I do for right-wing authoritarians.

From tumblr: "I made a big poster full of historic Personal Computers from Japan, its available from my shop (linked below) should you want to pick up a print :)"

I'm not able to relate to people who hate the cold

I'm originally from a tropical country and everyone there seems to just... not appreciate the benefits of a good snow storm. It's hot in New York and I could really use a few feet of snow right about now

New leaders, new era: US-Israel relations reach crossroads

The relationship is critical to both nations. But leaders are constrained by domestic politics.

Bennett leads a shaky coalition of 8 parties from across Israel’s spectrum, whose main point of agreement was removing Netanyahu.

Biden faces eroding support for Israel among Democrats, and a progressive wing focused on Israel’s half-century occupation of land claimed by Palestinians.

I'm literally gonna have to compile some shit from source because every single alarm clock application I've looked into is either abandoned or useless for my purpose, which is a very very very very very very simple need to play certain audio files at certain times of day -_-

why the fuck in the year of our lord 2021 is it SUCH A FUCKING TASK to find a fucking piece of software that will reliably play an audio file on linux at a certain time of day

seriously, I get that i'm a lil bit the asshole for even paying enough attention to comment let alone actually commenting....

...but like....

...these people are all clearly well-to-do and this country is 100% incubating a Hunger Games type scenario complete with the horrible fashion right now and I'll be damned if I'm not gonna roast elements of that decay process from time to time :shrug_riko:

I've been resisting commentary but there's an all-American retired couple across the way (firefighter+teacher) whose MANY adult kids come down w/the grandkids on weekends in up to eight (8) near-identical crossover vehicles

anyway a 30something one of them just went for a walk with the patriarch, 3 toddlers, and a bulldog named pork chop, while unironically wearing a head to toe white leopard print pantsuit which she definitely paid unironic money for

so, commenting moratorium over I guess

uspol, health care 

I could be dead without the Obama Medicaid expansion, so it is one I do remember and chalk up to the Democrats.

uspol, health care 

I think that's it, in a sense.

I roast the Democrats plenty and with good reason, but damn if getting the camel's nose under the tent wasn't Obama's plan, and it fucking worked.

‘Obamacare’ survives: Supreme Court dismisses big challenge

The justices, by a 7-2 vote, left the entire Affordable Care Act intact in ruling that Texas, other GOP-led states and two individuals had no right to bring their lawsuit in federal court. The Biden administration says 31 million people have health insurance because of the law, which also survived two earlier challenges in the Supreme Court.
