Imagine Seattle Taking Action on Climate
Looking at a post-event analysis today from something big that happened a while back, and I'm as always impressed by the clear-eyed blame-free examination of how we went wrong and how to avoid it next time.
Whether or not your policies are "good" doesn't matter in this case, @firstname.lastname@example.org. @twitter has already said that Alex Jones's behavior violates them, but he's still not going to be sanctioned. That tells us something, and it's not good.
Definitely not happy with where our policies are. They need to constantly evolve. Doing that work. Thanks for the thoughtful tweets and push, Mike https://twitter.com/mikecvet/status/1027233395942744…
Trump called Omarosa “that dog” and yet many of us are still waiting for a recording where he explicitly says “nigga” or “nigger.” Fact: Racist whites have been using dog whistles since forever. We don’t need a recording to know that Trump is a racist.
Every time I see this chart I am amazed. ONE in SIX 55-64 year olds owns a second property.
It's the flipside of low ownership rates among the young - they are renting from their parents' generation. The allocation of housing, not just the quantity, matters. https://twitter.com/TheIFS/status/1028964307944595457
Good morning! To encourage Twitter to drop Alex Jones, I just blocked the Twitter accounts of every Fortune 500 company w/ a Twitter presence. Ready to mass block Twitter's most lucrative advertisers with me? There are three quick & easy ways. Instructions are in this thread.
The responses to this tweet are perfect examples of why Alex Jones is a toxic addition to Twitter; it’s not just him — it’s definitely him too! — but his followers and fans that are a cesspit of vile rhetoric and abuse.

A fantastic example of civic hacking to reduce parking tickets due to unclear signage. http://mchap.io/using-foia-data-and-unix-to-halve-major-source-of-parking-tickets.html
The President of the United States states that he hired Omarosa on as Director of Communications despite his view of her as a “crazed, crying lowlife”.
How to know you're talking to a Nazi:
You: I hate Nazis.
Them: Define "Nazi."
Hope this helps. Non-Nazis are never, ever concerned that your definition of Nazi might include them.
Hey dudes. Just a reminder: I 100% stand by every single word of my essay. I made sure it was unembellished, factual, and that I had evidence to back it up in order to protect myself in case of ACTUAL litigation (not a network investigation, where I’m not protected). That is all.
So yeah. Let's stop talking about how calling out men for sexual assault "ruins their careers." Because this comeback took about 1.5 seconds. https://www.themarysue.com/chris-hardwick-talking-dead-return/
Turns out that the landing gear worked. 🎉
Update: WE FLY
“We’re inspecting the landing gear because the push back vehicle was hit by another ground vehicle” rates as a bad sign.
Here’s what the current story is:
“Tragically, a mentally-ill airline employee commits suicide.”
But if he were muslim:
“Potential terrorist hijacker thwarted by fighter jets.”
And if he were black:
“Man puts countless lives at risk after stealing plane for joy ride.”
You are repeating a racist lie. The players are protesting police violence against Black people. They are not protesting the national anthem. https://twitter.com/NPR/status/1027856594770440193
This is the thing that I keep coming back to.
the fact that the “bait truck” [heavy scare quotes. People aren’t vermin] was full of shoes?!?!?!
somehow it just irks me that last little bit. It’s like an extra little sprinkle of racism just added on
I make chunks of the internet, and like some stuff. Rest assured I'm not famous in any meaningful way
