Hellooooo Mspsocial! Nice to meet you! I'm Josh. I like reading, gaming, and many other things.
Here are the living beings that depend on me, Kentucky cat and Louisiana cat. Kentucky is from Kentucky, has no teeth, and enjoys chasing her toys. Louisiana's origin is unknown, but that was her name at the Minneapolis shelter so it seemed like fate. She enjoys waking me up in the morning to feed her.
I'm Josh and trying to figure out how to be a lawyer.
I have two cats, Kentucky and Louisiana.
I post about the Court, USPol, puzzles, my cats, and whatever media catches my fancy.
Well fuck it. They're interesting to me, and if you want a relationship with me, you're going to get 'em.
Made a conscious effort to call my mom yesterday and talk with her for a half hour. I made a list of topics and then when she asked about them, I talked about them. Talked to her about playing D&D, which I never did before. Going to continue to do that because one thing I am not good at doing is telling her about my hobbies and interests, because I think I was told (either through her or my dad) that they weren't interesting.
Listening to an interview where they were talking to 18-20 year olds about who they were voting for. Trump supporting 20 year old, if the only thing you can say to the interviewer after they ask why you're supporting Trump is to hesitantly say, "He supports me . . . values. And the Electoral College gives me a voice," I'd hazard you value you little except anti-democracy.
USPol, FLPol, Bloomberg
So glad we have to depend on the largesse of billionaires just so people can access their basic right to vote.
Anyway, I hope these 32k people aren't stopped from voting for other bullshit reasons.

USPol, Mitch McConnell
Me: I've gone back in time to edit the Constitution to explicitly stated that people named "Mitch McConnell" cannot be Majority Leader.
Bitch BcConnell: Today I'm blocking two new bipartisan bills from the House because I feel like it. You've been Bitched out, Dems!
Me: Oh no I made him more powerful and sassy.
Republicans have no incentive to behave in a conciliatory or compromising way with Dems. Bipartisanship? Civility? Fuck off. Those things don't get them votes, it doesn't get them money, it doesn't get them power. Until it does any of those things, it won't happen.
Power understands power. I guess I'm a supervillain now.
It's about power and it's going to remain about power until something breaks, sorry. Maybe it's pessimistic of me, but we're in a death spiral and I don't think there's a way to pull out of it before the crash.
Yeah sure, what a reasonable plan. Sure glad we have so many reasonable actors. https://time.com/5891217/ginsburg-scotus-raw-power-principles/
