Just like George Carlin said about the pro-life conservatives “They're all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you're born, you're on your own.”…and 192 House Republicans proved him right when they voted against the Baby Formula Bill
"62% say a third party is needed, up from 57% in September." – @Gallup@twitter.com
So, our response to: "Why does the #ForwardParty exist?" is:
The DeSantis admin's attacks on journalists like @JuddLegum@twitter.com and businesses like @Disney@twitter.com are frighteningly reminiscent of Castro's repression of the free press and freedom of speech. https://twitter.com/JuddLegum/status/1525096905176502273
Nothing quite like the tact and grace of an @NHGOP@twitter.com State Rep on the steps of the people's house. Say hello to @SusanDeLemus@twitter.com engaging peaceful protestors this morning. #NHPolitics
Does anyone really think these are the 2 best choices for the country? The two-party system has to change.

Our update on Google has finally been rejected.
Google asks us to provide credentials because #Fedilab cannot be used without them.
We appealed from this decision. It is technically not possible because login form is through a browser and not through the app. Also, there is no solution to specify the instance in their process.
We will keep you informed.
So #CPAC wants to elect the guy that lied to his followers in order to get them to invade the capitol. I fear our future.
Every toot has "language: en" or "language: de", etc. in the metadata that comes with it, so do any #Mastodon clients use translate.fedilab.app to translate into language of choice?
So I was listening to the radio last night when the DJ was asking people if they would take a pay cut to continue to work from home. And that just struck me as backwards. For those of us working from home for the last year, at higher productivity (at least according to our management at my company), why should we take a pay cut?
If a company has office space, and hasn't had people there for a year, they've saved on electricity, heating, cooling, and cleaning. To say the least.
Installing modified software on devices is an essential software freedom guaranteed by #copyleft & gives the #RightToRepair. Denver Gingerich explains how GPLv2 protects this right.
