Got my 60-page America in One Room briefing book("let"). We will be discussing
• The economy and taxes
• Healthcare
• The environment
• Immigration
• Foreign Policy

Picking out some subtopics I really want to bust some skulls on like a kid in a candy store.

Taxing the rich, universal healthcare, crisis-level climate action (subplot: what percentage of America will recognize me from the WaPo... lol)

For foreign policy my main policy idea is STOP THE DUMBASSERY.

Also thinking about how to quickly pick out my left-wing Confederates and effectively ally with them to constructively guide the conversation.

I guess they're probably going to spot me pretty quickly so maybe all I need do is be there.

@Pyretta this idea that people through discussion can deliberate their way to good policy... I don't know! But I guess either it works or we prove democracy is a failure, either way maybe that's good.

@earthtopus I'd like to anti-thank autocorrect for fucking capitalizing it, which doesn't help.

@lawremipsum that's the part that triggered the chops-busting, 100%. Antithautocorrect

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.

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.
