If you're ever on the receiving end of relentless political attacks, you can always turn it into a win by going on a Twitter space and sharing your faith in Christ — not Trump or DeSantis — with hundreds of thousands of listeners.


There’s nothing conservative about a debt deal that grants unlimited borrowing for two years that experts estimate will likely exceed $4 trillion.

I will insist on an amendment vote to enact REAL spending caps that lead to a balanced budget in 5 years!

People are so focused.on "tax the rich".

Maybe instead they should be focused on "stop giving the rich all our money"?

Our far left prime minister just pledged 18 billion dollars to Volkswagen for a 5 billion dollar battery plant, in a country of 45 million people. About 500 dollars for every man, woman, and child in the country.

There's homeless people begging in the streets. There's hundreds of native reserves without water. But no, it's the poor poor company founded by Hitler that really needs that money, extracted directly from the middle class and future generations.

Fake conservatives agree to fake spending cuts. Deal will increase mandatory spending ~5%, increase military spending ~3%, and maintain current non-military discretionary spending at post-COVID levels. No real cuts to see here.

Conservatives have been sold out once again!

This is what I woke up to a year ago today, on my way out to go halibut fishing. 😍

Communist regimes were not some unfortunate aberration, some historical deviation from a socialist ideal.

They were the ultimate expression, unconstrained by democratic and electoral pressures, of what socialism is all about:

State ownership at the expense of private property.

Government control at the expense of individual enterprise.

The pursuit of equality at the expense of opportunity for all.

In short, the state was everything and the individual nothing.

I am also excited to hear about the plans for matrix integration with calls. Most of my friernds are not on matrix, so it doesn't affect me all that much, but it is exciting to see the librem5 move ever closer to its original vision.

While I prefer gnome web, I think that switching to firefox is probably a smart move. However, one my librem5, I had to install the mobile friendly addon, that should probably be done by default if the browser is to be the default browser.
I might would also suggest Abrowser from trisquel. It is simply a rebranded firefox.

The problem is, people start to believe the people that they are around. He probably believed the things that he said when he was elected. But after years of being around "experts" he is trusting them and forgetting why he was sent up there.

I have had issues with the cylinder not opening on my judge. It has only happened twice. The second time I took it to a gun smith and had him look at it. He didn't find anything wrong, but it also hasn't happened since.

I first saw this about three months ago. An older couple in my church had passed away and had donated a lot if their things to our church. One of the things donated was an hp printer, that would only print a page that said that it could not print unless you signed up forvthe subscription service.
We threw the printer away.

I like my judge. I am not very accurate with it though.
I definitely prefer my cz-75 when accuracy is needed.

Let Lia Thomas swim by himself. Let Bud Light expire on the shelf. Let the Ford Raptor transition into a girl in someone else's garage. Let Target's tuck-friendly satan swimsuits hang on the rack forever. Raise the cost of wokeness so high that no organization -- no matter how powerful or dominant -- will be able to afford to promote it.

PSA, if someone asks you for contact info (e.g. a phone number) of someone you know, the correct response is "I can't give that to you, but I can give them yours".

It's efficient and adds no round-trips, it's privacy friendly, it's non-awkward and it's social engineering resistant. It's a universally good rule.

And the corollary, of course: Don't ask someone for another person's contact info - ask them to pass on yours.

The threat on the table with respect to the debt ceiling is default on the national debt.

There's no need to default on the national debt.

Let's say your credit card company calls and says they're freezing your card and you can't spend more money on credit. What happens then? Well, you can decide you're going to default and not pay your bills, but for me, that happened, and what I did wasn't defaulting, I cut my phone, I cut my Internet, I cut my food bill, and then I was able to make my critical payments and pay my debts.

At a routine 20 week ultrasound for my middle daughter, Sage, it appeared her head had stopped growing. I was told to come in 4 days later to remeasure, but we were also told also to prepare ourselves for “our options”.

I’m her mother, to keep going was the only option.

It turned out, she spent much of my pregnancy awkwardly sitting on her neck and was born with congenital torticollis, plagiocephally, and mandibular hypoplasia.

Sage required eight years of physical therapy at Shriner’s Hospital, and three months in a baby helmet.

Today, she is a healthy 12 year old honor student with a brilliant mind, and a gift for singing.

You should have yelled back, "That's ok, I just narrowly avoided surgery!"

The donkeys are actually the other side of the political aisle. They chose the mascot themselves so don't blame me.
It is also quite typical for those on that side of the aisle to be offended by somebody with an opinion that differs from theirs and to resort to name calling rather than reasoned discussion.
You did not disappoint.
