@dankwraith good to mention also that all face masks are largely useless against any virus they explicitly are for preventing pathogens from you from infecting others. for anyone looking to buy one for casual wear, n95s are hella difficult to breathe through for more than an hour or so at a time lol

LandBack - A Tribe Called Red!🔥
Over the last few years, I've played Triple A titles less and less because while they are getting bigger and shinier, they aren't getting better.
There are a handful of exceptions (Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is AMAZING) but I find my gaming itch has been well scratched by smaller games that actually explore and push narratives in creative ways, even if they are a bit unpolished.
There are just so many games that are worth our time and effort that don't have huge marketing budgets.

this is Jo Ann Hardesty. after years as a fixture at local demonstrations & protests, she was elected to Portland city council in 2018.
in the past year she got the votes to finally pull Portland out of the FBI's joint terrorism task force.
she also tore up a contract between ICE and the Portland Police for use of city training facilities.
her stance is that if they send federal gestapo ass shit to our city expecting local help, they can go pound sand.
i'm luv her.

Pol. US future
If bernie wins and is president, I see the much anticipated US financial crash coming, which has been set on course for at least a decade. The general public, the majority of US citizens will inevitably blame this collapse on the "socialist" policies of bernie sanders. They will continue the "well socialist sounds good in theory.. but we tried that once.."
And the response will be the shift towards a more reactionary/fascist election of candidates beginning with midterm elections
