We have a lot of new people at democracy.town this week. Hopefully you read the “about this server” page before you signed up. Our primary purpose here is to discuss politics from a progressive/liberal perspective. Mostly American, but we have members from other countries too.

We do have some fun. We like sci-fi and movies and Caturday. We enjoy Effin Birds graphics (a lot!). But our server can barely handle the traffic this week and our regular users haven’t been able to get in. This isn’t the bird site or a personal blog.

@TonyStark pays for the server and takes donations from those who offer. If you want to donate, you can look at the about page.

Different instances have different vibes. If ours isn’t yours, we’re happy to show you how to migrate your account to another server. joinmastodon.org will help you pick a good fit.

If you have questions, tag me, Tony, @SteveRogers, @MJ, or @SpiderMan.

@MariaHill Yet another person with no relevant experience trying to go straight to an office she’s not qualified for.

By the way, what the fuck is “triple confirming?” If you actually confirm something, which she didn’t, once is good.

@MariaHill @Pepper Republicans don’t have anything except being upset about a person who dresses like a normal human.

Fellow Pennsylvanian here.

Crudité and 10 bazillion houses aside, voters here are angry that Oz has no policies/solutions to any problems.

Fetterman will be our Senator.

Here’s a take on the dumb health complaints.

@TonyStark Oz at his Bethlehem rally: I live closer to here than Fetterman.

Fetterman at his Bethlehem rally: Because Dr. Oz lives in Jersey!

He thinks Pennsylvanians are dumb. Yeah people usually vote for people from their own part of the state in primaries and if you're running for governor it's smart to have a lieutenant governor from the other side of the state like Shapiro and Davis, but no one from either the Lehigh Valley or Philly is going to be fooled into voting for Oz because he bought a house in a rich Philly suburb. He's a creep who lives in Jersey. No offense to cool people from Jersey.

@TonyStark I have to say I really don’t understand all the fuss about his clothes. It’s not like a person can’t wear a hoodie and then wear a suit when it’s appropriate and not get things done. Just saying. 😅

@AgentCarter_SSR @TonyStark It's not too late! You can register here up to 30 days before the election and we have lots of job openings. 🤣​

Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate, Kari Lake, is an election denier, which is reason enough not to elect her. She also can't read a bill, the most basic requirement for a governor, since she should presumably understand what she is signing into law or vetoing.

@Melinda I’ve heard that. It sure seems that way. You wonder who influences who and where it comes from.

@TonyStark
Same tactics as Conservatives in the UK. It's like they are singing from the same hymn sheet.

@brothersoul Sorry to hear it.

The last administration over here was known for that. And a few more.

A small percentage of people hold almost everything. It’s unsustainable on every level.

@TonyStark The EXACT Same on this side of the pond, where they're making cuts For the Rich...

And fuck all for poor people. And calling it a win, why the pound drops to it's all time low. It's disgusting.

Fetterman is one hundred percent focused on every Pennsylvanian and their wellbeing from education to healthcare to infrastructure to wages to public safety. There is no daylight between how he will vote and if those votes will benefit the majority of Pennsylvanians.
Since Oz isn’t a Pennsylvanian, maybe he doesn’t know that but he sure does seem like a 😂:fetterman: :fetterman2: :fetterman: :fetterman2: :fetterman: :fetterman2:

Oz does not want to talk policy, because he would lose.

Oz also doesn't know the people of Pennsylvania and it really shows.

Dr. Oz peddled green coffee extract on TV as a “magic weight loss cure” and raspberry ketone as “the number one miracle in a bottle to burn your fat.”

The hallmark feature of both supplements was to enlarge Dr. Oz's bank account while shrinking the bank accounts of people he took advantage of.

Dr. Oz is also a fake resident of Pennsylvania as most Pennsylvanians know.

John Fetterman is an AmeriCorps volunteer, has a Master's Degree in Public Policy, was a long-time mayor of Braddock, PA, and is the current lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania.

Fetterman is a well qualified public servant. Dr. Oz is a fraud.

The Fetterman campaign probably should just hire Dr. Oz. His comments sure make him sound like he really wants to vote for the guy. :fetterman2:
