guns 

Hello, are you a member of a marginalized group? Do you want to learn some gun basics? I’ll teach you if you want. Exchanges will be conducted via encrypted email only. If you live close enough, I’ll pay for some range time too. I am not an expert by any means but I know a fair deal and I think I am a good teacher.

Please note that this offer isn’t open to cis/het white men, and also that detractive direct action (i.e. violence) isn’t the only way to revolt against the forces of oppression.

Here’s a question for my fellow white folks and retail/service workers:

Are you nice to black kids you meet in public?

Even the ones who are “misbehaving”?

Just wanna say, maximum respect to all the cane and crutch users out there. I threw my back out over the weekend and was leaning on a baseball bat to get around my house, and that makes everything so damn complicated.

If anybody ever gives you shit, you have my permission to beat them with your mobility aid.

AW YEAH ITS GOOD BUDDY DAY!

BE SURE TO WISH YOUR GOOD BUDDIES A GOOD BUDDY DAY, TODAY!

Municipal Adhesives on kolektiva just ignored two of these very simple asks by sending me a request from their “brand” account, and then responding to my public post with a DM without asking. So I blocked them. This is like super basic shit and not hard to follow. They were also just a little bit shitty about it.

Consent, people, consent.

For the record, this is what it says: “I am unlikely to accept your follow request if: a) your account is institutional/non-personal, b) you have no pronouns or other info in your bio, c) we have never interacted before. Please ask before DMing.”

Pretty bloody simple.

If you’re thinking about sending me a follow request, read my frickin bio and do the math. Maybe save us both some trouble.

@municipaladhesives hi there. Did you read my bio before sending me a follow request?

@travisfw hi. What possible reason would you have for sending me a follow request?

@ajroach42 Hey could you queue up a couple hours of talking heads on mountain town radio

53’ semi trucks should be banned from driving inside city limits.

So since tooting this, I read State and Revolution, and I have a slightly more nuanced take.

One of the fundamental purposes of the *bourgeois* state IS to ensure the consolidation of capital into as few hands as possible by enabling the exploitation the working class as much as possible. HOWEVER, there’s no reason a “proletarian state” i.e. a highly organized system of need fulfillment would also. In other words, “governance” is not inherently obligated to capital.

ivermectin and conversation around it 

It appears there is some evidence that ivermectin can cause sterility in humans with testes.

This is not an opportunity to joke about weeding out the gene pool or whatever.

That’s just straight up eugenics and nazi shit. Keep it out of your mouth and out of your mind and ideally out of your heart.

Racists and other bigots are such because they materially benefit from it, and they enjoy being cruel, not because they have “inferior genes.” Those don’t exist.

fuck cops and fuck Atlanta city council 

I wonder if Lenin knew just exactly how right and correct he was when he wrote that every single public official should be subject to recall at any time for any reason by their constituency.

Just imagine how much that would change the political landscape.

fuck cops and fuck Atlanta city council 

So Atlanta city council just passed their resolution to demolish the Atlanta forest to build a massive training facility for the cops, who killed two people last week.

They passed this despite seventeen hours of public comment, over 70% of which was against building the facility, and protest demonstrations outside literally every council member’s home while they were on video call voting on the matter.

Yes, of course, May Day is superior in every way to us federal Labor Day. However, I will use any opportunity I can to raise class consciousness.

All power to the people of the working class, by any means necessary.

The Politics of Everybody by Holly Lewis 

“Assigning low value to women, racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, and gender non-conforming people is also a literal lowering on the labor market. For this reason alone, solidarity with women, queer and trans people, immigrants, black people, and the disabled should be the task of all who are on the side of labor.”
