More on my experience and thoughts on the web than seemed helpful to put into my #introduction

Exploring Mastodon, feels a bit like the pre-MySpace/Facebook/Twitter online world before the largest corporations took control and monetized us all, when we had our local or even online days with WBS chat and the like.

Liking it so far, appreciate the rules of the qoto.org instance

Thanks for the welcome, #@freemo Here's my .

I'm...
• a dad of a handful of kiddos, married, living in Colorado.
• a Christian in the Anglican tradition, and suppose I'm an unaffiliated conservatarian.
• a reader, working through the great novels as well as easier/fun books and nonfiction.
• a card and board game player and am happily teaching more to my kids as they get older.
• short on free time. I enjoy a philosophical pipe as I read and/or reflect, and occasionally get my guitar or bow/arrows out to learn new skills.
• a software developer... and have been for a very long time, now in the world of APIs and cloud development (CRM/SFDC).

Democrats being irate and mad at blacks voting GOP to the point of screaming is nothing new.

Historically, Democrats have always been mad when their slaves went off the plantation.

This is well done and very Republican. Joe Biden: Our nation was founded on a simple idea: We're all created equal. We've never lived up to it — but we've never stopped trying.

Biden Campaign Refuses To Release Cognitive Test Results

Joe told reporters that he’s been “tested and am constantly tested” for cognitive decline... Biden never actually said what any of the results were.

I'm old enough to remember a press conference a few weeks ago when Trump said he'd been tested for COVID-19, and reporters shouted demands to know the results. Not the same if you're Biden

Was just told by mall security that sitting and reading my book (any book) while I wait for my son is not allowed. Sitting and waiting is allowed. But not reading a book. Covid rules make so much sense. So now I'm standing next to the only seating in the mall reading my book standing up. That's fine, apparently.
