Reader and twitter-friend @sewimperfect sent me this great gif, and it brought a topic I've been thinking about to the top of the list.
Thread.
Donkeys bray. If you've never heard one in real life you can't begin to imagine it. Hee Haw doesn't get it.
I think about trying to catch the audio one morning, but usually when I go out first time in the morning I'm pretty deep in the fog myself and can't think about technology.
The gif's not bad. The two sounds are breath-based. Actually the sound is Haw-Hee-Haw repeated some number of times but ending on Hee.
He already has his lungs full, and he bellows: HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAkk

I'm one of the Amazon employees quoted in this NYT article.

I want to add to @kateconger's reporting and provide more context on WHY I decided to take this action and to be so public about it.

Climate change is the issue of our lifetimes. 1/X

As @RevYearwood so eloquently put it, climate change is about "HUMANITY," about justice. It's also an issue of our national security, health, safety, economy. Climate change is changing & will change everything. It's effecting everything we care about. 2/x
From the devastating floods in Kerala, India to the #CampFire in CA, we're living through the climate crisis as it destroys communities and kills people living their lives. It's hitting the most vulnerable among us. 3/x independent.co.uk/news/science/t…

The number one cause of unemployment in Nigeria is our Educational curriculum which in my opinion is designed to produce Job seekers as against Job creators the country earnestly requires and it is further worsened by the stereotype which suggests that students
who are more vocationally inclined are academically deficient.

The long term plan to address this issue is to review our curriculum like i have always emphasized such that every student must learn a vocation/skill as a prerequisite to passing out from the secondary school.
Skills such as programming/coding, sport science, fashion designing, cinematography/music production, catering, carpentry, fish farming, Technology research, public speaking etc should be taught at the secondary school. These skills/vocation should be structured such that

Culture and Books

And now, a few words on this Cardi & Offset sitch while I sit in the sun and body this fro-yo, because making the difficult decision to prioritize your joy over becoming collateral damage of a man's emotionally dysfunctional pageantry miiiiiiiight be slightly related to me moving
We're in a really precarious time in history. Toxic masculinity is being called to the carpet and anyone with sense wants cishet men to engage with their emotions more, lean into sensitivity, see how they're societally programmed; to do all the things they need to do to combat it
But at the same time, we're still so entrenched in patriarchy that modalities for men to functionally do so remain limited, and progress is compromised every time we have to address the ongoing antics of the Leaders of the Ashen Resistance to Progress and their minions

@maggieNYT Let’s use Vietnam as an example. View during Vietnam was that the press was expected to carry the party line & report WH propaganda. WH then blamed press for inciting young people. Pentagon Papers & WaPo told the “truth.” It upset the WH - LBJ & Nixon & older voters. 1/
@maggieNYT When we go back to WWII, WWI & Korea - once we were in a war the Press & Hollywood supported the war 100%. If we were in it - everyone supported it. The Sedition Act was in place during WWI making it a crime to speak against the war. Vietnam vets admit protesters were right. 2/
@maggieNYT GOP & conservative voters can blame Mark Fowler who in 1987 (I was in law school) was Reagan’s cabinet (Communications Director). He was a Libertarian who got The Fairness Act repealed. Goldwater’s GOP staff pal in AZ told me that ONLY thing protecting Reagan from press ...3/

Politics

What have I been telling you for a year and a half? Congress is an algamation of grandstanding ass grabbing *leaking* drunks. You don't give them ANYTHING unless you're ready to see it go public.
Did everybody catch the FIREWORKS at the end of the Clinton Foundations whistle blower hearing?

No?

That's OK. I've cued them for you in the video below.

Rep. Mark Meadows has just walked the 2 witnesses through how long it took US Attorney John Huber to contact them & acknowledge receiving the thousands of CF docs from them.

1 of them then relates just how many LEO & federal agencies they contacted & gave the docs to.

1) Democrats are going to bury their Party for a long long time! These MORONS think this is what the country wants. It is the exact opposite. Independents will be the ones that show the Democrats that they failed in their responsibilities that they elected them to do.

2) Democrats got killed this weekend with two major announcements. The Federal Judge in Texas ruling that Obamacare is unconstitutional. The 5th Circuit is comprised of 18 Republican Appointed Judges (5 of which come from our President) and 8 Democrat Judges.

The case for a Second Referendum, a 9 point logic:

As this gains debate online, can we please spread information (RT if appropriate for you) on a few core points. Namely debunking the myth that a 2nd vote will be identical to the 1st, therefore what is to stop us calling a 3rd?
1. Timing: there is a stark difference between calling a 2nd Ref the day after the 1st, and calling a 2nd one, when you have no trade deals, currency ruined, confirmed interference, social division, peace in jeopardy & millions thumping on the doors of Parliament requesting one.
2. Ideas: In 2016 the people voted with a completely different set of ideas, outlook. and possible outcomes of what Brexit would look like for them, and their families. What they would gain from it, and what they would (or would not) lose. They were ideas, nothing more.
