Simplification has a rule:
1) Make the thing unnecessary
2) Then get rid of it.

Don't throw away the crutch while you're leaning on it.
This has relevance to every #No<thing> hashtag. If you reduce or eliminate a need, you can reduce or eliminate a practice or role.
Maintaining unneeded practices and roles is waste.
Anytime you recognize that you're not leaning on the crutch, it might be time for step 2

From 2015–before #metoo #churchtoo #silenceisnotspiritual. #THIS is most white-male-centered narcissistic drivel I have ever read in my entire life. @JohnPiper claims scripture is his authority then offers no exegesis of any text. “Principles” instead. 1/ desiringgod.org/interviews/sho…
Teaching “principles” rather than teaching excellent exegesis is a narcissistic tactic of control. ANYONE can claim the scripture says ANYTHING when they leave the scripture out. Brings followers into close relationship w/ leader, but leaves them not knowing Jesus (The Word). 2/
What .@JohnPiper did here was unbelievably manipulative. Demonstrated #ZERO submissiveness to scripture. Has nerve to guilt/shame women into “submission to scripture” then offers #NONE. Only offers his own “principles,” which scripture would drop-kick. 3/

¡Castelloneo espontáneo! Puesto que está disponible online, me pongo a livetuitear el primer episodio de "Los perros duros no bailan", la nueva xenoficción (?) de Arturo Perreteverte.
"... en aquel tiem­po pesaba cincuenta kilos, medía setenta y cuatro centímetros de las patas a la cruz..."

Perros eruditos que conocen el concepto de kilogramos y de centímetros.
"Agilulfo —un podenco flaco, filósofo y culto que sabe de estas cosas— asegura que nací para el combate; que soy un guerrero antiguo con una es­tirpe gladiadora tan vieja como la historia de los hu­manos."

Agilulfo le dice que es un alma antigua, que lo ve en su aura.

Alternate History:

Weiss: Immigrants they get the job done
Crowd: Hey she's not an immigrant (also misquote)
Weiss: Oops, sorry, my bad! #delete

#TheEnd
Like sure, sometimes people refuse to accept apologies. And sometimes apologies aren't enough if there's a pattern of behavior showing a lack of incremental improvement.
But mostly, when folks say, "oops, sorry," it ends things. Especially these days, when folks have shifted from the patterns of #hasjustinelandedyet. There's an attempt to give people space to "oops" their way back.

¡Atención! Da comienzo este hilo castellonense sobre Ready Player One de Ernest Cline, en compañía del gran Cthulhu.
Auspicia este hilo: @frauwaz. Lean todos su cuento en la antología "Cachava y boina" de @edcerbero.
Los preliminares incluyen recomendaciones del libro, entre las cuales no me resisto a citar la de John Scalzi. Espero que no sea una descripción literal de lo que me espera.

1. FACT CHECK: Dreamers DID NOT break the law. They were brought here BY THEIR PARENTS as children. They are not responsible and should not be penalized for someone else’s wrong. #basicethics #nosoullesspolitics #TruthMatters #DreamActNow
2. FACT CHECK: Dreamers DO PAY TAXES. Under DACA Dreamers are able to work, pay taxes, Social Security, build businesses, pay business registration fees, etc. #TrumpShutDown pitting Dreamers against “tax paying Americans” is ignorant as hell. #nosoullesspolitics #DreamActNow
3. FACT CHECK: Who is holding whom hostage? #TrumpShutdown is holding America hostage—trying to force us into #humansacrifice ritual: “Choose white children over brown immigrants. Dems said #NO! #ShutItDown #WeSeeYou #DreamActNow #nosoullesspolitics .@chuckschumer @NancyPelosi

1) Given the recent indictment of former uranium company transportation official, Mark Lambert, perhaps it is worthwhile revisiting the December 21st back-story to how AG Jeff Sessions announced his intention to reopen the investigation therein.
2) DECEMBER 21st, 2017 – Well, it would appear AG Sessions has instructed the DOJ to follow something similar to the basic investigative outline CTH recommended on 11/23/17 regarding #UraniumOne. When Katica discovered the FOIA documents an investigative trail
