Why protest, though? The economics are purposely terrible for USA manufacturing. If they're doing rainbows and openly supporting the destructive administration, then sure.

I was going to make toothpaste but found decent looking fluoride-free and with apatite no less, which rebuilds enamel. Been growing spearmint and things for essential oil extracts, need to set those up.

ROFL the WORST customers for IT support are: yep, docs. Whether medical docs or academia docs, they're the diametric opposite of technically astute. PhDs haven't meant anything useful since before Galileo.

Terrorism, especially if funded by foreigners, would definitely qualify one for enemy combatant status, though. Treason by elected officials, if they have mandatory meetings with foreign agents such as, oh I don't know, AIPAC maybe...

But more fundamentally, if the people engaging in activities against the country and its Constitution are illegally occupying a capitol, would that not be an invasion, and/or if they engaged in a coup, don't these both independently qualify people as enemy combatants? I think they get there multiple ways, honestly. The low level tools cheating in the polls and with the ballot counting are probably not enemy combatants, but it would have been fun to see them squirm in military court.

Normally, nitter.net would work in place of twitter or x.com, but recently there's been something with certificate registries all over, coincidentally only blocking free speech sites, imagine that.

Danes need the ivermectin. The rest there need all the normal recommended vaccine schedule and boosters. Anyway, when the power is cut off and they freeze, they'll recall their deserts fondly.

We're trying growing in bags this year until we can clear proper space, learned that they don't drain as well as promised... Looking very droopy right now. How did you do that last year, what are you doing this year?

Taking a harder look at all things soapy, do you all realize they've diluted detergents and soaps with more and more water while raising prices? Bars of real soap, especially made with actual oil, fat, etc and natural essential oils, are hard to find in box stores. They converted to cheaper gel things, and then the genius of foamy stuff because we're apparently too lazy to lather, which nets then 4-5 TIMES more money, because there's a simple secret! If you save one foamy soap bottle, put 1/4 of a good soap gel and then top off the bottle with water while stirring lightly to dissolve (DILUTE) the gel. VOILA you've made one gel soap into 4 (or 5) foaming soap bottles!

But step back from these a minute- turns out a lot of people turned to making and selling handmade soap during the plandemic. Find your locals at the farmers market, check their ingredients for natural good stuff, and enjoy long-lasting skin health. And then- hear me out- find a crochet person at the same market, probably selling towels and washcloths and plushies. Ask them to make Soap Savers, little cotton pouches to hold soap bars and bits, which double as scrubbers that foam up nicely, and exploit every last bit of that excellent soap bar.

Back to natural clean stuff, getting healthier, and bankrupting evil corporations all at the same time.

Depending on which laptop exactly, as he seemed to have abandoned more than one, didn't the possessors make backups for safety? Mac the repair shop guy and Giuliani, who each had legal possession of one of them, should have copies in their own control and with lawyers. Nosy Apple people certainly would have looked in their cloud as well. Cloud just means "other people's computers,) so handing your stuff over to strangers is about as safe as it sounds.

So that not everyone needs to click all the way through:

"Toxic legacy of forever chemicals lingers in Australian tap water

Changes to US tap water standards have called into question Australia’s aqua resources as historical test data shows contaminant levels way above what is allowed stateside.

Analysis by The Sydney Morning Herald shows particular chemicals have been found in the drinking water of up to 1.8 million Australians since 2010, including in Canberra, Queensland, parts of Sydney, Newcastle and Victoria.

Those particular chemicals are “forever chemical” pollutants; perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which have been linked to cancers in young people and firefighters. (What? They left out 'puppies'?)

The chemicals became ubiquitous since development in the 1940s, making jackets waterproof, carpets stain-resistant, frying pans non-stick and were used in firefighting foam.

In 2023, manufacturing multinational 3M reached a $10.3bn settlement with US public water bodies in the face of more than 4000 lawsuits filed against 3M and other chemical companies.

They are forever chemicals because in effect they do not break down and accumulate in the human body.

The World Health Organisation deems PFOA as carcinogenic to humans and PFOS as possibly carcinogenic to humans and connected the forever chemicals to increased cholesterol, immune system suppression, hormone interference and developmental issues in children.
