Why did you move again, though? I thought resistance.mstn was good. I still don't understand the Mastadon platform that well, or, what is up with it.

It's been something of a nightmare actually. We saw the attack on the Capitol coming a week away. We tried to warn people, but, it didn't work obviously.

There are some major victories on the deplatforming front, but, now, we have Epik and others to attack. Epik hosts both Gab and Parler now. So, needless to say, it is a priority. I am currently looking up their investors and stock holders for strongly worded letters.

When Joe Biden became the youngest Senator after he was elected, many thought he could be president one day. . .

Well, let me tell you, that day was long off, but, that day will be January 20th, 2021.

Cheers everyone.

Americans across race, place of origin and zip code turned out in record numbers to stand with and for each other, despite the pandemic and deliberate barriers from day-long lines to eliminated drop boxes.  

Voters overwhelmingly chose Biden to move forward together toward a better future. Biden will win the total vote, he'll win the Electoral College, and he will receive more votes than any candidate in US history. 

Our work is not done, but we have worked hard. Today is worth celebrating. 🎉

Stacey Abrams lost the battle, but won the war in Georgia.

Mad respect for her.

OK. So yesterday I was 90% certain of a Biden win. Now, this morning, I am 99% certain of a Biden win. We got this one, folks.

If you want to pray for me, that's totally fine. But while you do that, pray also that the other poor patients there will no longer suffer under the horror that is Hospital Basic Cable, and that they are blessed with Netflix instead.

Really, folks, no biggie. They're just gonna, you know, stitch up my innards to stop some bleeding is all. So, I may be there for some time.

Sorry all. Look, I don't want to make a big deal of this, but headed out to the ER in a could of hours.

Not certain that they will admit me to the hospital proper, but, I need a bit of treatment.

No, it is not life threatening.
No, it is not Covid-related.

Just some old wounds that I've ignored for far, far too long, and now I am paying the price for that.

The good news is, that other than voting, my mission was a success and is complete. And I'll likely mail it in from a bed there.

It's a little bit late but here's a resistance.social

Don't sit by if you have an opportunity to help.

So, if Armenia receives arms from France, and Azerbaijan from Russia, we could have a full-scale proxy war between NATO nations.

Russia wants nothing more than simply to make Turkey an Authoritarian ally, for the purpose of Putin's dream: creating a Eurasian Union to rival the European Union militarily.

Show thread

So, while I'm here, I really want to talk about the brewing conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia.

Yeah, things are bad folks. Both sides blame the other for the conflict.

And while Russia and Turkey are backing Azerbaijan, France is backing Armenia. This puts strain on NATO relations, which may have been Russia's plan all along.

Early reports indicate the US knew of Azerbaijani strike 24 hours ahead, but nothing was done.
