Hong Kong should be free. So should Kurdistan.

Yang was right on the money when he said the best way to fight back against Big Tech is the ensure that our personal data is our personal property. He said our data is worth more than oil and if companies make money on our data, they do so with our permission and we share in the profits.

The Democrats are CUTTING OFF THE MIC of the Republican Whip when asking about the secret impeachment inquiry.The House won’t vote, they won’t let republicans participate, and now they won’t even talk about it. The American people deserve transparency, not secret political trials.

I think a good way to convey the threat of surveillance, big tech, and lack of privacy to the average person would be to have a comic book of superheroes trying desperately, but being unable, to hide their secret identities because of the vast amount of information that is available to pretty much anyone.

I think Tulsi Gabbard is great, but I just don't think she's radical enough to win the nomination. She'd make a great Secretary of Defense or Secretary of State maybe.

Elizabeth Warren: Let me be clear about this...*continues to talk around the answer*

Happy Day to the many Italian-Americans whose contributions have been vital to the growth and prosperity of the US.

"Many Italian-Americans observe Columbus Day as a celebration of their heritage, and the first such celebration was held in New York City on October 12, 1866. The day was first enshrined as a legal holiday in the United States through the lobbying of Angelo Noce, a first generation Italian, in Denver."

no art updates recently. my city (Quito) is currently under curfew and militarization after 12 days of protests and violence that has paralyzed the streets.🙃

please keep my country in your thoughts.

I'm surprised they don't have an emoji for Native Americans (the Continent as a whole).

TIL Canadians have a Thanksgiving. I think that's really awesome. Happy belated Thanksgiving, Canadians! 🇨🇦 🍁 🦃 🥧

I’m not sure I have words for the level of relief one feels after FINALLY getting the long over-due final entry in a series sent off to the publisher. I’ve been floating through this entire weekend.
