echsellentlizard:

This is also because every time someone does address disability, they don’t seem to address any of the ones with high-tech treatments. Like, for example, access to SAFE dialysis and insulin (and insulin paraphernalia).

echsellentlizard:

If your utopian vision for the future doesn’t meet the needs of the disabled population, then it’s actually a dystopia and you should probably go back to the drawing board.

And yes, this is about the current obsession with banning “single-use plastics”.

The revolution must be accessible

IN THIS HOUSE

WE LOVE AND RESPECT

TOM NOOK

He’s also not a landlord in the traditional sense; He doesn’t buy already established properties. 

He builds them. 

Tom Nook isn’t a landlord, he’s a housing provider who sells you homes at cost with zero interest loans and no down payment.

Me: *Removes my cat from my lap to do something else.*

My cat: Father is…evil? Father is unyielding? Father is incapable of love? I am running away. I am packing my little rucksack and going out to explore the world as a lone vagabond. I can no longer thrive in this household.

The way that a lot of people visualize ‘the revolution’ to be would kill hundreds of millions of disabled people

I’m really specifically talking about leftists who are romanticizing and equating the apocalypse with revolution. If your version of ‘revolution’ doesn’t account for those who can’t breathe on their own or need access to sterile environments it’s a fucked up vision. Disabled people deserve to be a part of this world and the reality of it is that in order to seize the means of production that would enable people to stay alive we can’t just topple society in its entirety. Envisioning a state of total apocalypse as a paradise does not do marginalized people justice, it just means that we die while the rich and able live.

We can have our revolution and keep the people who fight for it the most alive if we care to.

THAT’S EUGENICS

The last time I left my house was 17 days ago and on that day I walked past a man who was sitting in his car with the windows open and as I walked past, someone on his radio said “now sports! sports is, there are no sports”

That was the last day of Massachusetts

A spider’s web is part of its mind, new research suggests

Researchers are slowly coming around to the idea that spider webbing is an essential part of these creatures’ cognitive apparatus. The animals don’t just use their webs to sense with; they use them to think

It’s part of a theory of mind known as “extended cognition,” and humans utilize it too. For instance, we might like to think of our minds as contained in our heads, but we rely on a number of structures outside of our heads (and even outside of our bodies) to help us think. Computers and calculators are an obvious example. We organize our living spaces to help us remember where things are, we jot notes, and we take photographs or store mementos.

But these examples pale in comparison to how a spider’s thinking is interwoven with its web. Scientists are discovering that some spiders possess cognitive abilities rivaling those of mammals and birds, including foresight and planning, complex learning, and even the capacity to be surprised. It’s enough to make you consider whether “Charlotte’s Web” could have been a true story.

The crux of these newly discovered cognitive abilities of spiders comes down to their webs. We’re finding that if you take away a spider’s webbing, it loses some of these capabilities.

Scientists Say Your “Mind” Isn’t Confined to Your Brain, or Even Your Body - Quartz - Pocket

why stop at spiders?

Is this why tarantulas and such are such dummies?

THANK YOU for actually putting the specifics in our view.

Democrats hate the poor and the working class.

People need help and she pulls out a laundry list of unrelated bullshit.

What the actual hell is her problem?

None of this is unrelated, which y’all would know if any of you understood what the bill is actually aiming to do: provide relief for the current situation and prevent this from being needed in the future.

So let’s go through this a bit:

  • The elections-related stuff is aimed at reducing the risk of transmitting diseases and viruses by enacting a federal mandate for states to expand voter access to safe and secure vote-by-mail, same-day voter registration, and early voting. Increased access to both vote-by-mail and early voting is a way of decreasing the amount of people showing up at one time to vote on Election Day (and therefore providing a hotbed for germs to spread). And one of the ways that safe and secure voting is assured? Conducting election audits.
  • The “postal service bailout” is designed to keep our postal service working properly so people can stay home (and thus reduce community transmission of the coronavirus) while still having safe and prompt access to things they need. Having a prompt and functional postal service is ESPECIALLY important for those who have to completely quarantine and cannot leave their homes.
  • The pay equity clause is designed to ensure that workers/employees that come from marginalized backgrounds will not be disproportionately affected, left out, or fired as a result of the relief bill. It’s placing a CONDITION on businesses and companies (which is a part of ANY loan, relief package, or grant) to say “if we’re going to give you this money that you want, you HAVE to treat your employees fairly and equitably.”
  • Likewise, the corporate board demographics clause is designed to give employee and worker representation on corporate boards so that employees have a say in how the business operates (most importantly, in how they treat their workers). This is not a ridiculous condition considering that not listening to their workers when they want to be paid fairly and treated well is one of the reasons we’re in this mess in the first place.
  • The collective bargaining IS, in fact, designed to help people during the COVID crisis. Some of the HUGE issues that keep getting brought up in this crisis is the lack of paid sick leave, the lack of paid family leave, the refusal of companies to adequately protect their employees from harm, and the chronic underpayment that low-wage workers face. Basically: companies screwing over their employees in both wages and benefits, which leads to a workforce that CANNOT AFFORD to take two weeks off from work to stop the spread of a fucking pandemic. Ensuring collective bargaining rights gives workers some power over this situation and can help prevent something like what is currently happening from happening again in the future.
  • The emissions and climate-related issues are for the companies, not consumers. This is a bill that is casting a wide net and is dealing in relief for both companies AND consumers AND employees. The bill deals with families struggling to pay rent AND businesses that need to have more transparency in their business dealings. This isn’t an either-or bill. We can walk and talk and chew gum at the same time. Being more transparent about their business dealings, including how said dealings affect the climate, can help prevent solvency issues in the future. And once again, those bits are conditions for businesses receiving aid (which again, is part of any loan, grant, or relief package). 
  • As staff of a community newspaper, I’m sorry but was Congress assuring that our potential retirement compensation is protected during a pandemic when newspapers are shutting down left and right and many of us are being indefinitely laid off because of rapidly decreasing ad revenue (due to the state lockdowns) somehow abhorrent to you?

It’s amazing how much cherry-picking people like OP will do on a massive, comprehensive thousand-page bill and not actually take into consideration what the bill is actually designed to do and engage in some basic critical thinking and connect-the-dots on how those things help those currently affected and hopefully prevent such measures from being needed again in the future.

thank you! i was so fucking confused by these complaints. the closest to bullshit-unrelated is definitely the airline emissions one, and even then putting conditions on how our good corporate citizens can use their free money rather than writing them a blank check is a more left-wing goal

especially with the executive branch run by trump, it’s not Congress’ business to just…throw money in a general direction and hope for the best. the way legislation works is an absolute hot mess, but expecting pelosi to fix that in the middle of a crisis sounds like the real unreasonable distraction

like, the original tweetthread sounds like a republican wrote it, but the tumblr complaints swung far left on the same note without a pause, and i was like O.o?

All of this, but especially the collective bargaining bit.  Have you seen the thing about how Amazon warehouse workers won paid time off recently?  THAT IS THE POWER OF COLLECTIVE BARGAINING.  It’s huge.

oh thank fucking god i thought i was gonna have a stroke from the sheer bullheadedness

Yall remember the term “paperclipping” from social studies?

democrats: *attempt to hold corporations accountable for destroying the planet, rigging elections, and leaving workers to die the moment it’s convenient*

democracy: *takes time to pass laws, especially laws that actually help people*

galaxy brain motherfuckers: wow democrats are hateful and useless
