Ohio is not Appalachia.
  • This also isn’t a matter of opinion, Appalachia has been defined by Congress as 423 specific counties; you’re either in one of those counties or you aren’t. That said, some of eastern and southern Ohio is considered part of Appalachia, but not the part JD grew up in.

  • Parental-rights law impacting school notification, transgender policies
  • In an email to WyoFile after the meeting, he added that “as a result, how to handle issues surrounding kids that exhibit transgendered behavior has been left in the lap of school boards or, if they fail to act, superintendents, principals, teachers and school counselors.”

    🖕Get fucked, the job of the state is not to monitor children for signs of gender nonconformity.

  • Why did no one tell me that blue jays are kind of big?
  • It’s funny how birds you’ve only seen in a guide book can seem like they’re ’supposed to be’ a very different size than they actually are! I always think shore birds are going to be bigger than they actually are. The first time I saw a willet it was enchantingly small.

  • interested in getting a tattoo of a fractal. How difficult would this be to do?
  • Are you okay with some of the fine details getting blurred or faded in the long term? Depending on where the tattoo is it can fade before too many years, and it will inevitably have some fading no matter how well you take care of it. The biggest things that will fade a tattoo after it heals are UV exposure and friction.

  • No puppies were harmed in this analogy

    Washington prisons delayed nearly a third of all inmate release dates last year, costing taxpayers millions - InvestigateWest
  • All the prisons listed in the article are state prisons, the prison problem in the US is only somewhat impacted by private prisons; the vast majority of prisoners (>90%) are in state or federally owned facilities. States make and save a shit ton of money through slave labor, they don’t necessarily want or need a business poking their nose in it.

  • And they were ROOMMATES!

    you can set your watch to it
  • For my money those charts will look very different after the next debate.

    There’s also not a combination of words that’s going to convince me leftists criticizing Dems are going to kill America. Even if Trump gets elected, you are missing every potential lesson if what you take away is “leftists too mean.”

  • you can set your watch to it
  • This is doomerist, have y’all slept through the abortion measures being defeated in deep red states? All Harris has to do is campaign on abortion—something Biden refused to do as a Catholic—and the election is fucking won

  • you can set your watch to it
  • Any good faith criticism of the Dem candidate should be obvious in its criticisms that R policies are inherently worse. For example, Harris’ record as DA is worth criticizing, but any bad decisions related to imprisoning people are going to be a million times worse under Trump, as Project 2025 shows.

  • you can set your watch to it
  • We’re electing a president, not a monarch. Nobody is above criticism, and there’s a weird segment of people who act like criticism from the left exists only to help the right.

    Like, I actually saw someone say we shouldn’t do it because it’s too nuanced for the average voter, and sorry but I don’t do paternalism like that. If reading criticism of how a candidate isn’t far enough left makes you vote further right, that’s a basic political literacy problem.

  • I finish so many little tasks this way

    Weed and furry rule

    Alt text: a one panel comic drawn in the style of The Onion’s Stan Kelley that says “shelter from the storm”; three rain clouds that say “resurgent fascism”, “irreversible climate change”, and “impending economic collapse” are raining on a furry character, who is cheerfully whistling because they have an umbrella labeled “weed and furry porn” that is keeping them dry. Similar to The Onion comics, a smaller character representing the artist is in the corner, saying “weather proof.” The artist is CritterDome
