People protested peacefully, and nobody listened. Since the beginning of time, people of color have said they have been mistreated by police. Nobody listened to them, Now that everyone has a camera in their back pocket, there is "proof" so people are starting to believe them. People just need to listen. When tens of thousands of people tell you something is happening, listen to them. Believe them. Work to change that. I see the same going on with women. We have been telling people that we are harassed and threatened for hundreds of years. But nobody listened. Or it was "rare." Now that harassment and threats are done online, and there's "proof" people are finally believing us. Just because something doesn't happen to you or you've never seen it, doesn't mean it doesn't happen. Just listen to people and believe them.

In response to a confession. What exactly is the point behind burning an entire country and its inhabitants? How does violence produce peace and justice? How can I end racism by doing anything other than treating people like *people*? I go through life trying to treat people kindly. What else is there? I refuse to protest, I refuse to pitch a fit at the feet of an uncaring government who will use that to manipulate citizens to hate each other. I do what I can- go to work, raise my kids to be kind and caring individuals, and contribute to society in good and kind ways. Never in history has war produced peace. It only breeds hatred and resentment in yet another group of people.

In response to a confession. It is irrational to blame anyone's suicide on anyone but the person who committed the act of killing himself. The final blame lies with no one else.

In response to a confession. I'm sick of it too, but I hope there is non-stop protest until there is peace and justice. If everything has to be burned to the ground to rid this country of white supremacy, so be it. If you don't want for that to happen, start doing something to end racism. We need to win.

All day long, patients bitch at me because our office currently has a no visitor policy. Unless the patient has some sort of documented reason (has a legal POA, dementia/Altzheimers, mentally disabled, etc), they must be by themselves during their appointment due to covid. We've gotten creative with FaceTime and speakerphone. We don't like it anymore than they do. I'm just so tired of being bitched out because "my husband has NEVER been to an appointment by himself!" Well, if the moron Trump voters would wear a mask, stay home, and get vaccinated our state wouldn't be in the red. Until then, we will protect our doctors, staff, and other patients.

The Bernie Sanders meme popping up everywhere is getting annoying.

In response to a confession. I wish we had better options, but I hope oil prices do not skyrocket. We run a vendor delivery business and have to gas up at least once a day. We easily spend $1k or more a month in fuel with just 2 trucks on the road. There are no feasible electric options at this time, although we hope there will be soon. But before then, if gas went up we would be screwed.

In response to a confession. I remember Biden making a promise during his campaigning that he would rescind the permit. When did he promise the opposite? And I thought the US was trying to be more self-sufficient, and NOT buy resources from other countries. If we use the money from the pipeline for US solar and wind power plants (which will give us permeant US jobs, not temporary), isn’t that not only significant better for the environment, but better for the US economy long term? I know this isn’t a popular opinion, but I feel the price of gas should be high. Renewable resources should be cheap, so we have incentive use those instead. The less oil we have, the more it should cost, since it is a limited, valuable.

In response to a confession. Once the pipeline was complete, it would have employed 35 people. Educate yourself beyond Parler. I have family in the absolute middle of nowhere in Eastern Europe. Most of them have never travelled more than 200 miles in their entire life. And they sent me video of them watching the inauguration and celebrating. I don't think you realize how horrified the rest of the world was at our former president. You are too ignorant to know how ignorant you are.

In response to a confession. I would *gladly* exit this disaster train if at all effing possible, but thanks to repub anti-maskers, general American stupidity, and both parties rioting/inciting violence, we aren't welcome anywhere else! Who am I kidding, we're not even welcome here if we don't spout the correct opinions for whoever happens to be listening at the time. Plus, there is a pandemic. I am for America, but Americans are making it damn hard to be for anything but self preservation.
