OK...regarding voting patterns here's a 'by WW for WW' action I call #FindFive . From now to the 2024 election I'm going to reach out to 5 WW who tend to not vote or think more conservatively. Respectfully discuss key issues, importance of voting, making a plan. Let's shift the WW vote. Just an idea.

This is so thoughtful and and fact focused. Thank you for the time and effort. I hope many more people quote it for boosting.
RobPalmerIRL (he/him/his) @RobPalmerIRLI noticed something in my time line that actually made me angry and had to respond. Somebody straight off said they were proud of their Green Party vote in 2016. That didn't garner the response they hoped they'd get. Let me explain to you WHY third party/protest voting isn't beneficial.10:09 PM - Jun 05, 2023

Yes. I'm fortunate I have the ability to always tip 20% or over. 20% is my bad tip. This is because imo waitstaff issues can usually be traced to bad management or a bad day. I've had both. I know I would be fired in under an hour if I tried to wait tables. Also I loathed Ronald Reagan. #noTaxonTips
J Foster @JFShetaniI always tip 20%, even if the service isn’t great. I figure both the server and I are in the same unbalanced, economic system that requires me, as a customer, to tip them so they can try to make ends meet. The service really has to be bad for me to tip less.09:57 AM - May 28, 2023

A lot of the money in the market involves funds buying with retirement contributions of millions of people. They really would be impacted if those fund values dropped significantly. There's no diversifying against an across the board market collapse. It's happened before, it's painful and ripples.
Benedict Scott @BenedictThere is an assumption that the economy will eventually collapse, but why? Yes, our economy is joke that’s not based in reality, but if the economy is the stock market and stocks are largely only owned by people who don’t NEED that money, who is going to be rushing to sell out to cause the collapse?09:57 PM - May 19, 2023

I feel like they are actually being directly contrasted. Would that be better for you?

Vanilla is a spice, chocolate is a fruit. The mere presumption that they can be directly compared is laughable.

You were mindful and considerate and that counts. I'm sure it made a difference.
Mark Kubert, DC @MarkKubertJust deleted a post before hitting Spout Off. It wasn’t offensive. But I wondered if maybe it could be perceived that way? And so I deleted.09:08 AM - May 11, 2023

If, as allies, we are going to say 'never again' we need to mean it. A false pledge in this matter is very reprehensible.

The purposeful communication work of the GOP and their allies to keep people stressed, angry and overwhelmed interferes with brain and body mechanisms for evaluation, patience, gratitude and empathy. And it's working. At some level we need to find ways to gently disengage people from that cycle.
Jeff H @JaiamiWhy would any compassionate and thinking human being want to belong to a Party whose sole agenda is to destroy the lives of people who don't look and think like they do? #GOPClownShowContinues #GOPCorruption #ShowGQPTheDoor02:45 PM - Apr 23, 2023

Yes! Legalize, regulate, unionize ... sex work is work.
Dave Amiott @DaveAmiottOK, I understand the argument:02:23 PM - Apr 23, 2023
"Sex Work is Exploitation."
But, like, the problem isn't the Sex part. It's the Work part.
ALL Work is Exploitation, unless you're the boss.
We should be supporting and protecting Sex Workers and their customers like we should ALL Workers and customers.

Yep ... I don't want to make people mad but a lot of cishet WW live in the protection of the WM patriarchy with a FU-IGM attitude. I appear pretty non scary so I figure this is a helpful role. And I've never met someone unwilling to let me celebrate their positives with them which is a starting pt.
Kace FruitFace @FruitFacedFruitKaceGood on you. Cishet WW need to be doing this. They don’t listen to me much bc I’m oogety boogety scary masculine non-binary to so many.11:39 AM - Apr 23, 2023
11:48 AM - Apr 23, 2023
With you on this ... and as a white woman my focus is on conversations with white women. I know WW across most of the political spectrum. What I'm trying to do is listen and dig deeper about how to respond in a way that increases empathy and gratitude to open minds to compassion when voting.
Kace FruitFace @FruitFacedFruitKaceTalk to cishet white people and tell them to vote like decent human beings in a majority since the data doesn’t fucking lie and they haven’t since the civil rights act was signed into law. If you wanna talk false equivalencies and all. Blaming the Dem Party is lazy & shows political immaturity.11:25 AM - Apr 23, 2023
