#introduction
Hi Everyone, I’m McGriff. I find introductions awkward even if it’s virtual so apologies in advance.

I came from Twitter to see what it’s like and I’m liking it so far. Like many people there, we can’t share a lot because we need money to feed ourselves and our families so anonymity is the only way we can interact.

I’m interested in #auspol #government #politics #crime #legal #Autistic #ADHD #disability #history #antiques #vintage #japan #korea and #covidscience (not coatsworth like hacks)

Any hot tips on and Chinese and Korean historical dramas are greatly appreciated

Also #cats and #claycrafts

Bonus points if you swear and are actually funny

Thanks :)


"The checks and balances of democratic governments were invented because humans themselves realized how unfit they were to govern themselves. They needed a system, yes. An industrial age machine.
Without the use of computing machines they had to arrange themselves in crude structures that formalized decision-making. A highly imperfect and unstable solution." — Helios, Deus Ex (2000)

#Introductions

Hi! I’m Ellie. I work for a women’s rights group doing #policy work and public education primarily about legal rights and how to navigate systems. I’m #progressive leaning and very interested in state and local #politics.

I am an adopted person and I serve as the spokesperson for Vermont Adoptee Rights. We were instrumental in passing a significant #adopteerights bill this spring that will restore all VT born adopted peoples right to obtain their own original birth certificates. We are now turning our attention to Massachusetts.

I love #Gardening, #Cooking, #baking, #kayaking, backyard birdwatching, and playing the #piano.

New hobbies of mine include #Embroidery and trying (very slowly) to learn the #cello.

I have adorable pets and will likely share photos of them, photos of my garden, and #LandscapePhotography. Sometimes, I’ll share my thoughts about politics and about living as an #disabled #adoptee.

The bad thing about "our"elected politicians is when they don't keep their campaign promises.

When he starts a war it is always in the "name of peace and justice in the world". His problems are automatically those of the world and anyone who does not take a stand for him becomes an enemy who must be punished. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=4eimT8EA2dU #politics #democracy #colonialism #diplomacy


#belarus #politics

The democratic rebellion against the fascist regime in Belarus is about two months old now.

People still protest every Sunday, still in impressivly large numbers.
ten thousands of people are detained, several have succumbed to their torture wounds.

Several sources to follow the resistance:

#introduction I'm both new here and a veteran. I signed up for Mastodon back in 2017 but it wasn't nearly as exciting as things seem to be now! Crazy what can happen if the right asshole buys your favorite social network. Anyway, I'm into #tech #food #politics #news #baltimore and #culture

If you can find where all of those things intersect 👏 🙌

Would love to find more people in those spheres where we can share and discuss
