About Me

Angry and tired. And tired of being angry. Still in The Struggle.

Thanks for calling me irrational.

I’ll say it again: I agree with him. Prisons are needlessly punitive to most of their prisoners and also serve as advanced criminal training camps. Police are out of control (and spare me any “not all police” bs) and emotionally and intellectually incapable of handling most of what they encounter while protecting property rather than people. The system is beyond broken and needs to be dismantled to be reborn in a more humane, just, and restorative system.

Thank you for this post.

I don't understand why so many "liberals" seem to think policing as it stands today is a fantastic institution that can't be challenged. It's a killer combo: lack of imagination and white supremacy. A literal killer combo as "because it doesn't affect my white ass, I don't have to spend time imagining why and how it's not working for others" as Black bodies are incarcerated and killed by police and the current criminal justice system.

Do you buy new clothing in the US?

If so, then you, too, are paying companies who "engage in questionable business practices which exploit workers including kids." My former job was writing up reports of companies who were engaged in in just these kinds of practices, it's definitely not just Nike. Same goes for computers - if not the finished product, certainly the parts, and almost definitely the parts that contain toxic chemicals.

Misleading headline.

Fuck yes, we'll turn out. This isn't 2016. Trump is reviled. They will turn out to vote him out, which is enough for me right now.

What will end their future support will be if Joe does not aggressively seek prison for Trump and Barr, if his administration does nothing about reinstating racial justice and voting laws, and if the party weakens New Green Deal goals in favor of monied lobbyists.
