Attention all blind and visually impaired #voters in North Carolina: As of a few moments ago, it has become possible to cast your absentee #ballot in a completely accessible way. It uses the same tools many registered voters will use to request a mail-in ballot. Just go to the North Carolina absentee ballot portal and push the continue button under the top section, the same way you would request a printed ballot by mail. Only once you look up your voter record and begin filling out the request form, you will add an email address and tick the checkbox that indicates that you need an accessible ballot. If you have already requested a printed ballot, as long as you haven't returned it, you can still submit a request for an accessible ballot. Once your request form is submitted, you will get an email letting you know when your accessible ballot is available. You can go back to the same portal to mark your ballot at that point, but you will use the third continue button under the section that will tell you that you can mark an accessible ballot if you have requested one and it is ready. This could take several days to be processed, so go ahead and submit your request. You will need to have a witness present according to North Carolina law, but they do not need to see or mark your ballot for you, and they can be blind or visually impaired as well. The ballot instructions will tell you the requirements for your witness. Primarily they must be at least 18 and must not be an employee of a care facility or an elected official, unless they are a close relative .., but the exact and correct information is in the portal. This is a game changer for North Carolina, and perhaps for the rest of the country as well, especially in light of the pandemic. Special thanks to Disability Rights NC for helping to make this a reality.

It is now possible for blind & visually impaired #Voters in NC to vote using an accessible absentee ballot. Use the absentee portal to request your ballot, & tick the box that says you need an accessible ballot. You will get a link by email.

Watch this stirring eulogy of KKK Exalted Cyclops and Kleagle Senator Robert C. Byrd, delivered by presidential hopeful @Joe Biden just 10 years ago. Very cringeworthy. And some think he will make a better president than @Donald J. Trump despite this. Just one reason #WhyImGreen #RideTheGreenWave #NeverrBiden #NeverTrump #H20

At least two people won, Jo Jorgensen and Howie Hawkins. There was at least one more winner as well, at least on my NC ballot. The winners were the ones who weren't allowed to debate the two losers.
Who won tonight's debate?

If @JoeBiden is worried about Healthcare being taken away with Trump winning, he should focus on winning issues like #MedicareForAll ALL. Unfortunately, he still is fighting for Private Healthcare that profits off of us getting sick #Debates2020

.@JoeBiden, @realDonaldTrump, Democrats, & Republicans are ALL complicit in the tax laws we have today where the rich & powerful benefit by paying little-to-zero taxes while the rest of the working class get gouged. Remember, this is class war, not blue vs red. #Debates2020

Today is #NationalCoffeeDay, and we have the perfect soundtrack for your coffee break! Whether you want songs about coffee or songs to set the mood while warming up with a cup, we've got something for you. How do you take yours?

Without Jo Jorgensen and Howie Hawkins, it's not even worth a moment of my time. Seriously, it seems the corporate bosses who really run the show love uninformed and misinformed voters.
TONIGHT: President Trump and Joe Biden will face off onstage at the first presidential debate.

I finally got my 2020 Census questionnaire completed, but that website is a hot mess. First, like it's 2005 or something, they tell me "For best results, use the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari." Internet Explorer? Really? The fuck? It actually surprised me just a little that they didn't tell me to use Netscape Navigator. I only have Firefox and Chromium, which is the open source Chrome installed, although I could use Epiphany or Midori if I thought they could work. So I started the questions with Firefox, which is my primary browser for most non-work-related stuff, and it is supposed to be compatible with the website. Wouldn't you know, just over halfway through, I get a message that says "For security reasons, this session was terminated. Every response is important. Please try again using another browser or device." So I figured I was maybe taking too long to fill out the questionnaire and started over, rushing through the questions this time, although still doing my best to be sure that everything was correct. Same problem, but just under halfway through this time. Yeah, they stopped me earlier than they did the first time. So on to Chromium, which is the browser I use for work, where I get stopped again at the same place, just under the halfway point, with the same message. The fuck? How could my response be so important that they don't really want it after all? So with only a day left to complete my census info, I had to say fuck it and just respond over the phone. Fortunately I was able to speak to someone fairly quickly, and now my household is officially legal for the next 10 years, assuming we even have a planet left by then.

The one sticking point for me personally has always been the race question. I never answer that one anywhere, or at least I check the box that says "other" or similar, and the last time I had to go somewhere and fill out the census questionnaire in 2010, I think I did it at the public library, and the person who helped me fill out the questionnaire just wrote in what I look like, which of course is the same thing they did on my voter registration. Not at all what I wanted then, not at all what I want now. Fortunately, the representative told me I could in fact refuse the question, which I did. It came to me a little too late though that instead of refusing, I should have simply answered with "some other race" and had "non-conforming" written in the box next to it. After all, I can certainly say that I am racially non-conforming, which is probably the way I will answer that question in 2030, assuming anyone is here to care. I guess maybe I should have done this over the phone much earlier, but now I don't have this thing hanging over my head anymore, which is the good part I guess. I probably should see what I can do to fix my voter registration now, since I really don't want that question filled in the way it is there either. They still have to let me vote I would think, unless maybe I should wait until after the election to try to change that, since a pending change may cause my ballot to be rejected. If there's any chance of that at all, I guess I'll just need to wait.

Really, why can't we be 100% pro-life, starting before birth and going on up through adulthood to the natural death of the body? Pro-life must mean pro-health and pro-peace. It must be anti-abortion, but also anti-hunger, anti-death, anti-war, and most definitely anti-insurance, which takes more lives than it saves.
When pro-life = anti-masks, pro-gun, anti-immigration, anti-universal healthcare, and pro-death penalty you really have to wonder what kind of life weโ€™re advocating for.

The Democrats have taken the Green Partyโ€™s Green New Deal slogan, divested it of real content, and abandoned it altogether in the 2020 Democratic platform. Donald Trump may call climate change a hoax, but the Democrats are acting as if its a hoax.โ€ฆ


Stop them dead cold. Join the #Fediverse and leave big corporate tech in the dust that they made for themselves.

Facebook's foray into virtual and augmented reality is a bet on where the future of online social interaction is heading. It's also a plan to make sure the company owns a big piece of whatever platform ultimately supplants the smartphone. AXIOS

Retweet if you follow @Howie Hawkins and @Angela Walker and make their follower counts go through the roof! Tweets and follows aren't votes, but they do count.

Why vote for Dems if they donโ€™t support ANY policies we want i.e., Med4all, end wars, legalโ˜˜๏ธ?

What kind of ...?
Buying stock does not make you a business owner unless you have enough accumulated wealth already to buy a majority stake, which is a ton of shares. Only the richest CEO's and executives have enough money to buy enough stock in a company to even get a seat at their table. With a few shares of stock, you really have nothing. No vote, no decision making power, not a damn thing except a bad decision that you made to gamble away your hard-earned money and the regret that comes when the market collapses. No. The quickest and best way, the only way to become a business owner is to start your own business. It's that simple.
The fastest way to become a business owner is to buy shares of stock.

The ideal situation for an authoritarian is a society where its citizens have rights and could have power but are terrified to use them.

You're supposed to know the game is rigged, you're supposed to know corruption is rampant, and you're supposed to feel demoralized.

All it really means is that Disney can sell anything at any price and brainwash us into buying it. Die, capitalism, die!

Democracy doesnโ€™t exist when an entire party is removed from the ballot. This is beyond reform.

Meanwhile, corporate censorship at Facebook is certainly on the rise. Breaking up facebook isn't the answer. Leaving it is. Join the #Fediverse and kick corporate censorship to the curb once and for all. If Facebook had no users, and if all their users migrated to the small independent sites that all talk to each other, social media would look very much different and the world would be a much better place. Talkabout is just one example of such a small and independent social site that respects your freedom, but there are thousands more. Join Talkabout or find your own best fit.
Facebook is failing in the fight against disinformation because it would undermine its own business model to conduct effective content moderation. That's why the only way forward is to #BreakUpFacebookโ€ฆ


Listen black people, do NOT become a guinea pig or a lab monkey for the COVID19 vaccine.

The fact that black people die disproportionately relative to COVID19 in terms of the preexisting conditions and preexisting disadvantages, has nothing to do with whether you should volunteer to being used as a COVID19 lab rat.

Leave the testing of the vaccine alone. How are they going to know if the vaccine works unless they deliberately infect you with the virus?

If you know systemic racism has already put us at a health disadvantage; if you know they are not going to know if the vaccine works unless you are infected with the virus, what is going to happen to you if the vaccine doesnโ€™t work? It means if the vaccine doesnโ€™t seriously or fatally harm you, the infection will.

It means if you are black, you have a better chance of dying as one of the COVID Guinean pigs. Weโ€™ve seen this movie before. It is a horror movie that we should not allow to be replayed or rewound.

While the NFL runs propaganda about how they care about Black Life, they are still actively blackballing Eric Reid (@E_Reid35) for fighting for the Black community. Eric set 2 franchise records last year, and is one of the best defensive players in the league.

Someone tell me why exactly this census thing is still needed when it's plain to see that the U.S. government already tracks every single person living in this country and already has all the information requested on the census form. In fact, in my state, it's possible for anyone anywhere to look up my voter record, which actually has more information on it than the census even needs.
In America, everyone counts. And the #2020Census is how that great promise is kept. Respond today online, by phone or by mail and help inform hundreds of billions in funding for education, health programs, and more. Shape your future. Start here at

The voter suppression by the Democratic Party is really getting out of control.

Democrats know full well that about half of green party voters would not vote but for the green party being on the presidential ballot. Trying to keep the Green Party off the ballot is an attempt to stop those people from voting.

It is voter suppression.

Biden supports maintaining the military industrial complex, the profiteering of healthcare, and the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure.

Despite differences in vanity rhetoric, Trump & Biden are both on team capitalism.

African/Black people are being told to make a choice between the right-wing, white supremacist Trump forces & right-wing, white supremacist neoliberal democrats. But some of us come out of a tradition that says we fight both. We don't make choice between the fox and the wolf!
