Our power is out while they're working on stuff over there. I'm not gonna be able to get out for hotdish.

Hey so that house that exploded in St Paul this afternoon is like right near ours, our back door neighbor got hit with something and like we felt the explosion.

The next time you see an old white guy complain about a social program, think about how quickly half a billion dollars was raised for something a handful of people will benefit from.

Do you see it?

The Notre Dame restoration effort having reached 500 million in funds while historically Black churches in L.A. burned down by white supremacists is struggling to break a single million is the perfect commentary on equality and basic decency and respect.

The world isn't broken. People are purposefully keeping it that way.

#Florence, with the revelation of my medical condition, I'm wondering if there's an extra person who'd like to help us continue moving forward.

Working close with me, right now helping to get my thoughts out of me.

"The yields can be tremendous: when I visited, 16,000 pounds of greens were being harvested every week. Output like that is a locavore’s dream, especially in Minnesota, where regional produce is scarce during the protracted, frigid winter. Restaurants, corner groceries, supermarkets, and a major hospital—all located in the Twin Cities—couldn’t get enough of the stuff."

Need a table? Come make one with people. Know how to repair stuff? Be available for people. Need food? Come get it if you live near the co-op, want to help grow food? Come do that. Surely something is already out there? If not, let's Fucking Make It.

So this article is inspiring me to REALLY WANT to start or participate in creating a hyper-local manufacturing and growing co-op. Who's already doing stuff like this in the Twin Cities that i could connect with?

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
