The more left or right they go, the less liberal they become. Politics is a circle with a dirty authoritarian bottom.

That moment of doubt when the monitoring system reports the host down. That host that was supposed to be cancelled so should be down. Right, that one, wasn't it, that was supposed to be cancelled? For sure?

Identity politics has a lot to answer for, including Trump as POTUS. But one of the pernicious elements of if it is how it takes words to describe extremes and broadens them to include many things that said words should not be used to describe.

All too often the people talking about progressive and acceptance of others are not very accepting of the others they don't like/understand/empathise with.

Kinda thing that gives "liberal" a bad name, but it's not liberal at all. Liberal means something. Literally[1].

His story is about a dog's loyalty for the man who gave him a home. Every morning he would walk with his person to the train station & wait there for him to come home in the evening. One day, the man died at work & never returned, but for years, the dog still went to the station & waited for him

So later on there's a match happening. In a sport that's popular internationally. Being played at an international level. Will @Spoutible be showing the scores of that live, or is the platform entirely US-centric?

@Helenfeguson gun reform, in the US? Long overdue. Though looking at stats for gun ownership by household, it's clear the culture is a major factor in the US gun death issue, and that's harder to address. Do people need guns lying about their house in a civilised society? No. On the other hand are

When you know a company has had way too much exposure to the US: when they have titles like "associate director" and the role is at least 3 tiers down from being actually senior.

If you can't handle other people having different beliefs than you there are 2 easy options: stop interacting with people or get into your own special bubble and act like other beliefs are just wrong (regardless of evidence, the degree to which they are value or (another) faith based etc.).

Buying compost ahead of the growing season. Large UK DIY chain has a recommended (peat free) variety at a good price. Add 20 bags; this goes over the weight limit for free delivery, adding £1.50/bag delivery charge.

Inclusive includes an acceptance of differing points of view, and that identity includes all manner of things, including, for example, beliefs that others do not share - and that those can be conflicting. The very basis of liberal thinking is based on that; based on the idea of acceptance -

Dear people of Spoutible

There are other countries out there, other elections. What happens in those other elections can and probably will play a part in your own election. Even if your election is in the USA. Before the POTUS elections will come the UK national elections, and the outcome of those

The problem with an IT strategy around "best of breed" is at best it involves a lot of money and a lot of change management, because "best" is a moving target incumbents often fail to keep hitting.

In the worst case scenario it costs a lot of money to buy and even more to escape #lockin
