I'm reading left people discussing Bernie over on that Bird site, and seeing how willing people are to block or attack each other over minor details is depressing.

Not that I'm even taking sides on Twitter drama... I often find myself agreeing with aspects of both groups, but think people are far too willing to attack each other on a personal level despite the common goal.

I understand sometimes these things just happen, but keep perspective on the powers we're up against.

A situation - I feel like I can be a bit more open on here because I don't have a wide range of followers & people I know on here, but by that same token, there are fewer people on here to interact with. Can't have it both ways, I guess.

At least there seems to be fewer trolls over here.

I'm still torn up over the fact that Cuomo is so openly corrupt, used Democratic party money to mail out fliers implying Cynthia Nixon is anti-Semetic, while people were purged from the voting rolls like it's 2016, and absolutely nothing is being done about it. It's disgusting.

Do you think if we told The Resistance that Russia was behind the purging of the voter rolls in NYC that they'd protest the results of the NY gubernatorial primary? Cause they don't seem to care when Democracy is *actually* under attack.

Dear God, I don't know how I'm going to handle the Nixon/Cuomo results tonight. Preparing for the worst, hoping for the best.

Nervous & excited about tomorrow (I guess technically today). I'll be finding out if my state is going with a corrupt asshole or someone who represents my views. I hope Nixon annihilates Cuomo. The difference is gigantic.

Just a disclaimer - I don't assume that this applies to typical "moderates" who don't necessarily get caught up in politics in the same way. This seems to be the 24/7 cable news crowd. The ones who need a the theater of politics to make them feel comfortable.

But why am I so surprised? These are the same people who enabled Bush in the first place. They only turned on Bush when his numbers crashed. I remember these types of people looked at me like I was crazy when I said that Bush was going to overstep his governmental power. The damage Bush caused only matters to them because they want to feign looking like the were a decent human being. Turns out, they never cared, they just want to look like they care, so long as it doesn't inconvenience them.

Seeing Centrists go beyond rehabilitating Bush into fully embracing him was a chilling reminder of how little human suffering means to them. Not that I didn't know that, but to callously talk about being nostalgic for Bush after the Iraq War & normalizing torture, was a step that I didn't think I'd see so openly embraced. Some Centrists struck me as having a plausible deniability in that they seem to be just mislead by marketing, but there's no being mislead if you miss Bush. You're just trash.

So this is supposed to be a website for horny Bird-Site users, right? Shouldn't it be called tusky instead of horny, you know, what with the Mastadon & all...

...I'm sorry. I Mastadon'ed when I should have Mastadon't.

I can't get over how crazy some of the stuff you can Toot on Mastodon can be!

So I figure this is a good time/place to admit something you normally wouldn't admit on Twitter.

I pee sitting down! Standing is for suckers. Oh, yes, sitting. The great leveler. From the mightiest Pharaoh to the lowliest peasant, who doesn’t enjoy a good sit?

Obligatory first post on a social media platform where few people have fully switched to, complaining about how there's no content.
