The signs aren't looking good. Do you get joint pain before certain types of weather?

I haven't heard this one from him, this is great! It reminds of Johnny Cash in the best ways

Yes, but usually it only happens because something that shouldn't have caused a negative reaction, does.

I'm not a lawyer, but I'd imagine that would also be banned. You'll have to see if you get a notice from the agency

A group of several corporations and fascists within Trump's circle have created a plan called Project 2025, in which they will circumvent democracy and establish the president as a dictator going forward in the event any Republican is elected to the presidency.

That's exactly what a non-compete is. Your job can no longer stop you from quitting and working for a competitor.

18% of all working people in the US are under non-competes. This is a huge deal.

Bro I bet AFV would have cut a deal for a couple hundred bucks. I can't imagine their viewership has done well with tiktok and youtube

This one is a cover of a song written by Joe Hill. The IWW still publishes the little red songbook, which has this song in it!

This is a legendary classic, covered by dozens of leftist artists. While I prefer studio recordings generally, hearing an entire crowd singing this song gives so much more weight to it. I also really like this (admittedly it's mostly a meme) edit with rifle fire to really drive home that we would not have our labor rights today without these brave workers literally fighting with guns for better working conditions.

Harry Simms was an organizer for the NMU, a communist union that had been organizing in Harlan county, Kentucky during the events of Bloody Harlan. In fact his death, as described in this song, reignited militant labor into more violent action against the capitalists. Eventually the UMW won the hearts and minds of the workers while beating back the capitalist union busters, but the NMU was a crucial part of the story in supporting workers and their families after getting kicked out of company towns.

I don't need the context of the situation to know either statement is true. If the guy had something with sex workers, I'd need more context to actually criticize those actions. As it stand though, sex work is fine, billionaires are bad, and billionaires supporting fascist genocides makes me wonder why we aren't drawing and quartering.

Sex work is fine. Billionaires supporting a fascist genocide is not.

I suppose I'm cheating a bit by posting Pink, but their leftist messages are popular for a reason!

You know that part of Huckleberry Finn where his dad goes on a racist tirade? That was actually criticism of poor whites being ok with their shit conditions simply because they could look down on black people. Twain was based as fuck for his time period.
