So, the Houston shooter was a Nazi. 

I am shocked.

What an unusual twist!

What was making me laugh was the byline that was something like "deadliest shooting since feb '18". You fucks can't even manage six months good-ish behaviour.

Had a helicoptor circling around outside for about the past 30 minutes.  Guess someone important was finally murdered by an idiot on this road or something.

 I am, today, extra-bitter about all of the bogus apocalypse predictions from 2012 forward.  :rogpipe:

We're having the referendum on abortion today. We have a clause in our constitution saying Mother and child have equal rights to life. This blocked abortion completely in Ireland, and had a side effect that a woman has to literally be approaching death before doctors will intervene to end a pregnancy (they let a woman get septicemia rather then perform the abortion to save her life and she died which sort of triggered today's vote).
I've voted yes to remove this clause, because I trust women to know when they need an abortion (for whatever reason, not just health). But I suspect this is probably the last time they could call this referendum and have a high chance it wont go through.

Good luck. Somehow I have a surprising amount of Irish or Irish-adjacent content on my Twitter feed, so I woke up to a ton of posts about this.

Have fun throwing eggs at the American anti-abortion activists who have decided to go to Ireland to, uh, tell the Irish what they think they should do.  Huh.  Well, that's always worked out well historically, foreigners telling Irish people what to do.

That has actually been really funny, we have staunch anti abortion die hards in this country, and even they were out for blood when they found out foreign money was behind posters and foreign canvassers were coming in. It triggers the "800 years" reflex nationalism that at this point has become genetic.

There's talk of charging them on filing for a holiday visa under false pretenses, they may all end up with a criminal charge.

Not much in the way of sleep last night.  I feel as if I am walking around with Chris Christie strapped to my back.  :(

Okay, now that's just lovely.

I read that dual-citizenship and other overseas Irish are flying back for the vote.

Yes, 50k people left since 2007 because of the economic crises a lot are flying back, and there are loads of duel nationality who live abroad who are eligible to vote if they lived here in the last few years.

That has actually been really funny, we have staunch anti abortion die hards in this country, and even they were out for blood when they found out foreign money was behind posters and foreign canvassers were coming in.

Okay, now that's just lovely.

Part of it is that fear that's there since Russia/Cambridge Analytics/Facebook meddling with elections theres bean a reactionary fear to any money coming in from overseas to push an agenda, the anti-abortion side have been propped up by the US, but the same reaction would be there for any nation trying it. There were also semi-professional anti abortion canvassers flown in, they are the ones who might get charged, I don't agree with charging them with a crime, but I also don't agree with paid scabs being flown in.

I'm sure the pro-choice side were doing the same thing but they were either better at hiding it, or didnt get funded as much.

I should clarify, the scabs who might get charged were 8 people who've been here for the last month going door to door. None of the people flying home to vote are.

I finally got myself decent employment today! I'll be working in a local bakery just a few blocks from where I live. It's through a staffing agency right now but after 3 months of good work they should hire me in.

It's been almost two years since I last held a real, well paying, full time job. It's third shift so I'm going to be doing A LOT of adjustment for the next few months, but I'm finally getting back to being able to take care of myself again after years of crippling depression. This is a huge step in the process of my recovery. I'm excited!

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Advice for working graves:

1.  Go to bed the moment you get home.
2.  Don't drink coffee until midnight.
3.  Forget all about alcohol.
