There is a fallacy that "the community" and "the police" need to "come together" so that "both sides" can develop mutual respect. In a democratic society the police are under civilian control and should do what the people say they should do. There's only one side, the people.

Since the @HouseGOP is suddenly big defenders of Dr Seuss, they would do well to see one of his most famous cartoons, given their creation of the #americafirstcaucus today.

"Vaccine billionaires" 🤮 What is wrong with us? How have we allowed profiteering from the death of millions? Sometimes I despair about humanity. #BanBillionaires

KBC’s withdrawal is bad news for workers, communities, mortgage holders & small businesses. Less competition will strengthens AIB & BOI duopoly. We need a new, alternative public banking system that genuinely serves the needs of customers. Full Statement: sinnfein.ie/contents/60531

Hi @ProtonMail, can you give me one good reason I can't pay for your services nor donate using privacy-enhancing #monero? Honestly. Stop forcing me to use instant exchanges to pay for your service in #bitcoin. If it's lack of developers I will personally do it for free. Thanks!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: without Section 230, any online service that did continue to exist would censor more user-generated content—and that would inevitably harm marginalized groups more than others. vice.com/en/article/qj8d9q/s…

Our latest project: pilot projects to get fee-free ATMs, check cashing, and wire transfers at the Post Office 📬 Because it’s ridiculous to get price gouged for accessing your *own* money! Shout out to @SenGillibrand, @BillPascrell, & @RepMarcyKaptur for helping lead on this
BANKING: Rep. @AOC pushes for pilot program for post offices to provide financial services in under-banked communities: "The Postal Service is awesome. Americans love the Postal Service."

Why do any countries allow cross-border travel at this point? This isn't a single-country issue.
So far, 18 people in mandatory hotel quarantine have tested positive for Covid, of which, 4 of those had “variants of concern.” Variants are a threat to any hope we have for a pathway out of this pandemic. Stopping them at the point of entry is vital to our society.

The hashrate of Bitcoin mining pools plummeted in 24 hours. Antpools fell by 24.5%, BTC.com fell by 18.9%, Poolin fell by 33%, Binance pools fell by 20%. The reason is that Northwest China is undergoing a complete blackout for safety inspections.

1000's have no Eircode, many have the wrong 1. Use of Eircode for non postal purposes is restricted by Statute. To find your way beyond your own personal experience have a read!
if @EamonRyan & @1Hildegarde with @Dept_ECC's Officials Griffin, Cronin & King were exercising the oversight required of them by Statute in the Postal Act, then such announcements including Eircode would also have careful related statements included like -
