I finished my first of hopefully many microscale #legomoc of #chicago . This is Daley Center Tower / Plaza, complete with blue line tracks and station, pedway, and picasso sculpture :)

stay alert: scammers have been offering to pay you an hourly rate in exchange for you doing tasks for them -- this is a TRICK! They're paying you much less than you're making for them. do NOT fall for this!

Me: actually, this song is critical of the US and that's why it's kickass

In which Lori Lightfoot gives $600m MORE to the cops chicago.suntimes.com/city-hall

Mayor Lori Lightfoot didn’t quarrel with the $600 million price tag when asked Monday how she plans to pay for it.
“If you check our budget, we’ve been tucking money away for this, little by little, every year. So we feel prepared to manage the expense that will be incurred. And we can give you more details later,”


Although Chauvin was rightfully convicted, this does nothing to prevent more people from being murdered by police. Every day, it becomes more clear that abolition is the only solution, and that is still not even on the table for policymakers. We need to force it on the table.

How many more have to go before amerikkka wakes the fuck up? How many more 13yo kids? Burn this shit to the ground.

looks like proudboy chuds are coming to my city in a few weeks. also imagine having the name dick schwets

US politics 

So journalist who was at the capital jan 6 was getting interviewed on npr. Long interview, mostly forgettable, about the far right and media coverage and terrorism laws. Whatever. End of the interview, the guy asks her "what part of being at the capital jan 6 will stick with you?" She thinks for a long moment. Then she starts to talk about this argument between insurrectionists about breaking windows. One of the guys is yelling "don't break property, this is the people's house." So he sees her and her microphone and come up to her and says "this isn't what we came here to do, we didn't come here to break property." So she asks "well, what did you come here to do?" And he says he came there to execute members of congress, four at a time, on the gallows they erected. This is the perfect distillation of far right politics. Don't break a window, we're only here to kill people.

zoomers watching the original charlie and the chocolate factory for the first time: man can you imagine if chocolate companies actually used slave labor. would that be fucked up or what
the nestle corporation, sweating nervously: haha. yeah. can you imagine.

The FBI is visiting leftists/anarchists across the country, claiming they're trying to 'help prevent violence' and their targets 'aren't in trouble.'

*Never talk to the feds or cops. Ever.*

Nothing you say will help you or your comrades. Don't even talk to them about your enemies. They'll know you're a rat who is willing to talk and they'll come back to you for more, as often as they want.

Fuck the feds. Fuck state repression. Fuck the state.

Why do we expect the people storming the capitol with Confederate flags yesterday and the government officials who incited it to get punished any more than the actual Confederates after the war?

“But the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work. We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.”
