Politics thoughts 

I’m so relieved. The stress I’ve been feeling these last four years, especially as the election approached this year, is starting to ease.

However, I know if Biden is just a plain neoliberal that will shift our politics rightward to “cross the aisle”, we’ll be in worse shape if leftists don’t organize.

People are falling for these right-wing nazis because they’re tired of our government failing to help real people, and the nazis, in addition to the racism, put on a convincing enough con. If we want to prevent the nation from being conned like this again, we must shift into organizing to help real people, and to drag people away from falling into the right.

We still have ICE camps to close and thousands of people to release

We still have to work towards defunding the police as a path to abolition

We still have prisons to empty

We still have a planet to save

And we still have people to house, feed, and provide medical care for

im so tired of people in the foss community talking about how important freedom is, yet they are using gab or promoting other far-right bullshit. thats the opposite of freedom. we have to fight for every persons right to be free. until then, there is no such thing. if your in to that kind of bullshit, please unfollow me and tell me so I can do the same!

I refuse to consume content from someone that want to kill antifascists, someone that got wallpapers of nazi symbols or someone that uses and promotes gab. where are all the good linux/floss content creators?

No surprise, Firefox appears to have Google set as the default geo provider for location services for some installations.

You can change this manually to use Mozilla's location services via `about:config`'s geo.provider.network.url by updating the URL string to:

location.services.mozilla.com/

Or even a hard-coded longitude/latitude.
