  • Turtle soup

  • Ex Redditors of Lemmy what made you come on over? What happened at Reddit that you made the switch?
  • I've found Thunder to be a great replacement with some modern, gesture and UX friendly enhancements. Raccoon for Lemmy is pure magic and I highly recommend it as well, but the UX and UI are more modern and has less of that RIF, old-school forum thread scroller vibe.

  • 'Every Single Senator Should Be Supporting' Sanders Bid to Block Massive New Arms Sale to Israel
  • Us economy is driven by the military industrial complex. Taxpayer funded defense "aid" is given to countries, only for them to turn around and buy american weapons with said aid, thus funneling the money into private pockets. Legislature "pork" was/is notorious for kickbacks to local manufacturing plants for various military equipment. The entire scheme of "global defense" that the US has pushed over the last 70 years has been driven by the desire to monopolize military production and sales on a global scale. Sanctions are imposed on countries which otherwise agree ideologically with what the US professes are its ideals because those countries purchase arms from the US competitors, while notably hostile countries like Saudia Arabia are propped up bc they are good for business. Israel aid is given to be spent on US arms. The US doesn't give a shit how countries use their arms, as long as they're buying. Without the military industrial complex, much of the domestic economy would likewise grind to a halt. Hell, the US military is the biggest domestic employer. The system is simply not set up for a massive paradigm shift like that, though imo it's going to have to happen eventually because the current, unsustainable system is reaching it's last leg and starting to topple over.

  • Gotta say, I've been enjoying this saga. I'm curious to see how it wraps up

  • A World War I veteran is first Tulsa Race Massacre victim identified from mass graves
  • Do you get off on having the absolute worst takes on every single thread, or are you legitimately that stupid?

  • Migrants say border agents continue to throw away their belongings like medicine
  • Are the caravans in the room with us right now?

  • Pelosi moving behind the scenes to get Biden to reconsider presidential run
  • So who in the Democratic party gets to play kingmaker?

    The same party insiders who've played kingmaker during the last two primaries

  • Biden Confuses Kamala Harris for Trump, Zelenskiy for Putin at NATO Summit
  • Absolutely agreed that he's miles better than the alternative, and if forced to vote for him I will, but it's not a good look for a party that markets itself as a sensible alternative to the dumpster fire that is the Republican party.

    The man is clearly too old for the job and no amount of shining up the turd will make it anything other than a turd. Sure people will hold their nose and vote for it, but at the end of this whole thing, either way we're all covered in shit. And the thing is, it doesn't have to be that way.

  • Biden Confuses Kamala Harris for Trump, Zelenskiy for Putin at NATO Summit
  • Because it's clearly more than a fucking speech impediment or random words he misspoke a few times. People have eyes. No amount of spin is going to change the reality that he's an elderly man whose brain is slowly fucking degenerating in real time in front of our eyes.

  • My best friend, who recently became a Navy pilot
  • Raises the question: does Lower Decks count as an anime?

  • Awww, he's so cuuuuttteeee!!
  • One reason we like the remote thermostat is it allows us to adjust the temp automatically for house plants depending on temp and humidity.

  • How young voters can impact 2024 election
  • By actually showing up and fucking voting?

  • Isn't defederating with lemmygrad being as censorship as USSR is accused of ?(NO SIDE TAKEN, READ BEFORE COMMENTING)
  • What is the value in hearing opinions that denigrate your existence and way of life? Why would that make one close minded? You have finite amount of time, resources, and mental energy to devote to the content you engage with. Why spend it on content that you consider antagonistic, toxic, and stress-indiucing?

  • what are you excited to watch this weekend (June 21)
  • I'm right there with you. Gatwa is quickly growing as one of my favorite doctors. His charisma and chemistry with Millie are off the charts.

  • The meaning of life
  • No such thing

  • Untitled, Oil on Canvas
  • Love the texture added by layering the red onto the blue background instead of the other way around. Even more so the use of directionally of brush to create a sense of dynamic movement and momentum, and the fact that you worked outsode in so the eye is drawn texturally in that direction through the layering

  • Judge rules that federal agency can't enforce abortion rule in Louisiana and Mississippi
  • Absolutely. "Oh we can't enforce federal healthcare mandates? OK, well, we sure as fuck can choose and enforce who gets federal tax exemption status, so get fucked"

  • Lethal Weapon 5 | Mel Gibson confirms he's directing
  • He means Lethal Weapon 7, right? We already have 5 and 6

  • Just Watched Cloud Atlas (first time)
  • It's a wonderful production. There are tons of little details and ways the characters and actors and souls connect through time that make it enjoyable on rewatch as well. And that score... spectacular. If you liked the movie and like reading, you may enjoy the author's follow up book The Bone Clocks too. It's less high-minded than Cloud Atlas, but carries a lot of the similar writing tone, style, and charm
