Workers > Billionaires

Congress is, yet again, looking to sneak through a very dangerous bill that will do tremendous damage to the internet. All in the name of "children's safety."

Is there a weather Mastodon? I am obsessed with weather and will miss the immediacy of being able to check stuff on Twitter. What are you guys suggest? By the way, the two other channels on cable are truly a joke. One of them was founded by being capital and the other one is owned by Byron Allen and they have absolutely no interest in ever knowledge in climate change. it’s weird. #Weather #Storm #Thunderstorm #Noreaster #hurricane #wildfire #flood #mudslide
