A couple new to me things here:
*27% of white evangelicals believe in Q Anon.
*Something called Patriot Church formed last year in Knoxville, TN.

NPR: Disinformation Fuels A White Evangelical Movement. It Led 1 Virginia Pastor To Quit.
npr.org/2021/02/21/969…
27% is astonishing, but I'm surprised it's not closer to half.

Looking for a wrist brace that would keep me from clenching my fists in my sleep. Any recommendations?

I don't think I need anything expensive. I don't have neuropathy or arthritis in my hands. Just... My hands are hurting because I wake up with clenched fists.
I was looking at some options on Amazon, and some of them look like they would be too flimsy to keep my hands open.

So that's why I'm asking.
I know magnesium is recommended. It doesn't help me stop this.

I recently found out that a fundamentalist Christian family I knew growing up was stockpiling weapons during the time I knew them and basically preparing to be the next Ruby Ridge, and they kept this from my family and we were still hanging out with them then.
I didn't know, but I mean... I don't think we were safe, and my parents would have definitely reacted negatively and taken us away from that if they'd known, and *I* would definitely have distanced myself from them a lot sooner.

I don't know how to deal with this information.
One of them was recently outed as a Proud Boy and fired from his job as a cop, and I guess I'm only now coming to terms with the fact that they were trained to become terrorists as children.

Wait, so...

The White Contingent is mad that Ted Cruz left his dog to be cared for by a security guard because they think the dog deserved a vacation in Cancun, do I have this right?
I feel like there are actual human concerns to consider here, but go on about his dog.
"If people are cold, the dog is cold" is not the good and unproblematic content you think it is.

The question when listening to Political Gabfest is always, "Which one of these white people is going to take the most ghoulish position?"

It's usually David Plotz, but this time it's Emily Bazelon, who is stridently anti-teachers' union on the matter of schools opening.
I spoke too soon. It's David and Emily, both of them.

John Dickerson, who usually doesn't have an opinion, is arguing against them.
John was insisting that teacher vaccination be prioritized, and Emily kept arguing that the science doesn't bear that out!

Whoa. Deodorant under boobs is a game changer. I can't believe I never tried this before.
If I ever helm a podcasting empire, I'm starting a podcast on the struggle to find a bra that fits in any size in America called Bra'dcast pronounced "broadcast."
I'm having productive bra-related ideas right now because all of my current bras are hurting me, and it's hard to think about anything else.

Also, I'm tired of sewing the wires back into every Panache Envy for them to hold only a couple weeks. That bra costs $80. No more.

I can't believe people are still eating at indoor restaurants.

A local coffee shop owner told me they had to close indoor dining recently because people would come and sit for hours with no masks and just...slowly sip their coffee.

Who is doing that right now????
Why would you do that???

This fucking country is going to lose so many more people, it is just breathtaking.

And people are going to coffee shops to hang out???
It's definitely not just Trump people. It's a lot more than that.
