Some university denied admission to some guy who had been a stupid teen. THIS IS NOT NEWS. THIS IS NOT IMPORTANT. If you feel compelled to take sides in this abusefest, I suggest a therapist. There are far worse things out there, where people are suffering actual harms.

@BenjaminStyles777 So those are your gatekeepers. I do much the same on twitter.

@gmcgath For impeachment proceedings and in aid of oversight of the executive branch it should be able to subpoena. Not so sure about other functions related to its role of making laws.

People have rights that must be respected...unless the government decides that it is too much trouble to respect those rights. texasmonthly.com/news/border-p

I won't waste more time explaining that "we can't have open borders because we have welfare" is nonsense. People can look up the numbers for themselves; America will be bankrupted, not by immigrants, but by citizens' unwillingness to pay for the government services they demand.

Those who advocate violence toward those who have not aggressed are not libertarians, no matter WHO they would see harmed. They may play at being libertarian, but it is a mere pose, a mask for evil.

Idiots: "The news is all manipulated; you can't believe any of it."

Same idiots: "This news report PROVES...."

This is what conservatism has reduced itself to: Damning Americans for being unwilling to parent the rest of the world. The Tree of Liberty is not refreshed by the blood of outsiders, but of *patriots*. Let those in other nations win their own freedom.

As those who have followed me awhile probably know, I have "shrugged", meaning that I will not support this profoundly rights-violating society. To effect that, I contribute as little as possible to society in general and limit my income so that I need not pay taxes. 1/3

So if you or someone you know needs an inexpensive Unix/Linux/Internet programmer or admin, a consultant, or a writer (yes, I do documentation!), drop me a line. A tweet is fine, as is email; my gmail username is the same as my twitter handle.

RT's would be appreciated! 3/3

In spite of my near zero income, the last yearish was quite comfortable. But all good things must come to an end and, if I'm to avoid returning to life in a tent, I need to up my income a little. This is good news for anyone who needs to hire a computer guy on the cheap. 2/3

From the very beginning of my acquaintance with your tweets, impressing me with your arrogance, your conceit, and your selfish disdain of the timelines of others, I had not known them a month before I felt that you were the last account in the world whom I could RT. twitter.com/indiend2/status/11

There once was a tweet from Nantucket
Whose pun was so bad they said “suck it!”
Still in the reply
The pun wouldn’t die
So they threw up their hands and said “fuck it." twitter.com/sandyt0es/status/1

It is an ancient Twitterer,
And he stoppeth one of three.
'By thy bloodshot eyes and trolling cries,
Now wherefore tweet’st at me?

The DM’s doors are opened wide,
And I am loved therein;
My friends are met, the jokes are set:
May'st hear the merry din.'

The unwillingness to engage with trolls does not prove one a snowflake, it proves that one has developed the skills needed to recognize trolls and the self-discipline to not get trapped by their manipulations.

The article referenced in the quote is a good intro.

Liberdon

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
