I don't agree with doxing people, even ones as heinous as this couple. It just doesn't change anything. He even said in the article he'd do it again, but keep his mask on.
The journalist should have taken the video to local LE and pressed charges against everyone in the video. If the local police wouldn't pursue the case, then she should've taken it to the next level, all the way to the feds if necessary. Anyone convicted would've lost their jobs anyway, without the death threats. washingtonpost.com/national-se

Biden Plans to Restore Alaskan Forest Protections Stripped Under Trump

The Tongass National Forest, in southeastern Alaska, is home to more than 400 species of wildlife, including nesting bald eagles, moose and bears.

The forest also plays a key role in combating . One of the world’s largest carbon sinks, its trees and soil absorb and store millions of tons of carbon dioxide that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere, where it would trap heat and add to global warming.

The administration says it will “repeal or replace” the rule that opened up more than half of Tongass National Forest to logging.

One thing I agree with Joe Manchin on and I hope he's serious. People in middle class tax brackets paying 20-40% income taxes while we let Jeff Bezos launch himself to space while there's a lack of affordable housing and infrastructure is crumbling is absurd.

Revisiting the 2017 tax scam would be a good idea and Republicans hate it.

Hey! I'm back y'all. I have to break from social media for my mental health now and again, especially when life is overwhelming.
My only baby just graduated high school and we're navigating the maze of financial aid right now. Whew! It's a lot y'all.
One thing I've thought about a lot recently is people saying let's boycott X corporation and support local businesses. But what if your local business sucks too? My local hardware store, where I've shopped for 20 years, didn't enforce a mask mandate and treated me like 💩 when I wore a mask. So now my choice is Lowes. Wut? How does that help? I mean, I gotta buy mulch from somebody. Folks who need delivery service will probably use Amazon or Instacart so it seems the logical answer is to advocate for the worker's rights for fair wages, health care, retirement and what not.
Anyway, love you guys, hope you're all fat and sassy, as my grandma used to say. 😘

The game was getting intense, and then, out of nowhere, a kitten found its way onto the poker table.

Not as a prize, it just decided this well lit table with it's warm felt top was the perfect place to curl up for a nap.

"Is this one of your's?" the counselor asked the android.

"It is not," he answered.

"Well, I fold," said the doctor.

"I'll fold too," said the engineer.

No one on the starship wanted to wake the cute kitten up.

So much for the 'Russia hoax' hoax.

And one for some background.
