prime Minister Trudeau I support you but why did you break your promise of electoral reform? that was a huge mistake. First passed the post is a broken electoral system. ask America. although they may have a different view.

yes have empathy toward misinformed morons who insist upon personal freedoms that literally kill ppl. Be gentle toward these same dummies who fight for gun rights at the cost of mass shootings. Be the bigger person always, even as they force you to carry a baby you don't want + won't let you safely deliver a child you DO want. Smile, refrain from name-calling as they regulate how + with whom you may have sex. BE NICE to those cruel turds who won't just trust that ppl know their own genders.

I absolutely cringed when that woman said that it's fine for the prose to be shoddy — that it needed editorial notes! — because "the story is just that good!" This is such utter rubbish and does a disservice to discerning readers who want quality content. I wouldn't mind romance in general, and romantasy in particular, if the writing weren't typically so juvenile. But I guess I'm in the minority since so many readers seem to live for this subpar trash. I suppose we all have guilty pleasures.

The reason the government hasn’t done shit about Boeing can be summed up in one word, not a 35 min podcast, it’s Capitalism.

my concern 4 deaf would b that they may b overwhelmed w/ noise they not use to hearing. imagine having rush hour noise constantly in ur ear? forced upon you? that would be sort of cruelty placed upon patient. Now the volume of noise Ctrl would be a concern what if it fixes but is too loud? no way to turn that off I guess one can apply hear buds to block noise but yeah thing of concern for young n deaf who can't really express as they may not have grasp at languages just yet. what we may view as blessings may be curse for young patient.

In the captivating exploration of the complex emotions around travel on Vox's latest episode, the concept of a "vacation rental" emerges as a potential remedy to the tumultuous landscape of contemporary travel. Amidst the conflicting desires to stay and explore, a well-curated vacation rental could offer the perfect balance—a home away from home that provides comfort and stability while still satisfying the innate wanderlust. As Vox's Allie Volpe and The New Yorker's Agnes Callard delve into the intricacies of travel, the notion of a carefully chosen vacation rental stands out as a key element in making the journey a bit more manageable and fulfilling. https://blissbythesea.org/
