US pol, mass shooting, mass panic
This country is becoming unliveable. Someone hears a car backfire in a public space and everyone goes running for cover thinking it's another lone wolf terrorist.
mass shooting thoughts
Mass shootings and terrorist attacks terrify me, and have terrified me since I was a teenager. 9/11 and Columbine happened within a few years of each other... and to me they kind of swirl together into this pervasive sense of fear in social spaces. That extreme violence could just erupt around me at any moment if I’m out and about. I often daydream about what might happen and how to protect myself.
I’m terrified of mass shootings.
us pol, rant
They should make a tv show about America.
Every episode, a horrifying crime is committed. The main characters, investigators, slowly and with great difficulty piece together exactly what happened, who did it, and why they did it. And then at the end of the every episode, the investigators are do not arrest or prosecute the criminal for political reasons, and the last 15 minutes are spent arguing about it.
That is how modern American politics work.
Okay... I’ve been avoiding discussing this topic here for weeks, but I just have to say, this is brewing up to be the scandal to end all scandals. There are accusations out there around a number of major political figures of several different political persuasions across several countries. Epstein is shaping up to be the Rasputin of the post cold-war order.
I’ve prepared for fediverse fascists, grifters and spam accounts via
1) being on a small, well moderated instance with people I mostly trust
2) making sure only people I approve of can follow me and see my non-public posts.
3) avoiding following people who aren’t flooding my feed with news about them
complaining about mobile games
Videogames are my escape from this shit. I’m really tired of everything I enjoy or do to relax being turned into yet another vector for corps to cojole me into buying their products.
Free to play was a great idea, back when it was optional, limited to a few different kinds of games, and there were alternatives. But now even full-price games are implementing these incredibly stress inducing and frustrating mechanics and I’m... fucking fed up.
