@VeeSquared92 Michaelangelo is my spirit animal. Raphael is my true mentor. Leonardo is my role model. Donatello is my idol. They are society’s indifference personified. The end all, be all of cinematic achievements.

I believe you’re thinking of the labor movement

Quoted@brooksoft

@ebruenig @Olivianuzzi You would never have maternity leave without those women in power.

men voted for women’s suffrage, and some women opposed it! women were not property in 1919 (in this country anyway.)

Quoted@JoeNanney

@ebruenig @Olivianuzzi You’re lucky. Had you been born ~100 years ago, you would have been property, not a person. Either your father or your husband could have dictated your entire life. You might want to read about it. Just a thought.

Quoted@emrazz

Men will never understand the profound relief of a woman seeing a woman in power. You just can’t. You don’t get it.

Not many union members stayed to hear Amy Klobuchar here at AFL-CIO conference in Philly. Place cleared out after Bernie left.

This is cruel, outrageous and a blatant attempt to force the union into submission. It is the type of corporate greed that the American people are sick and tired of. I say to GM: Restore the health care benefits that your workers have earned and deserve.

this is very important. you need to get fries and ask for both regular and spicy ketchup (their ketchup is special.) for the whataburger experience, get a whataburger, but also get a bbq chicken sandwich and a honey butter chicken biscuit and perhaps a couple taquitos

i've not seen this film, but to me beto registers as similar to one of the stoned layabouts you meet in austin who're in town because they go to UT but are suburban nobility from like mesquite

Quoted@matthew_hand

@ebruenig Beto is basically James Spader in Pretty in Pink. There’s nothing to like about that.

With union popularity on the rise, the strike is likely to galvanize massive public support, as the wave of teachers strikes did more than a year ago.

The demonization of the homeless and the vague intonation that someone should "do something" about them are becoming major facets of the conservative agenda and worldview

here's my hot take: usually when people use 'gaslighting' in a public/political context, 'lying' would've been a better word to use, with the addendum that 'some people believe the lies'

I think it’s good to take care of veterans but to each their own

Quoted@DanCrenshawTX

Watching Bernie pander to different groups to get their vote has always disgusted me, but now it’s personal. I didn’t go to war so that you would take care of me, Bernie. I went because I wanted to serve and our country needed it.
