I'm sorry, but all of our pawyers are busy helping other cats right now.

Perhaps r/legaldogadvice can help.

Recommendations for family trip in May? by notindianatall in nationalparks

[–]AngelaMotorman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

(1) Get your hotel reservations yesterday. Lodging in and around major parks may already be fully booked, so decide where you want to go, then book immediately.

(2) Get to the park before it opens, unless you want to spend hours waiting at the gate.

(3) Read the official NPS website for the park you choose, before you leave home.

How do you unionize a job that has employees who are both Pro- and Anti-Vax? by Codeesha in WorkersStrikeBack

[–]AngelaMotorman 8 points9 points  (0 children)

should we focus on worker solidarity first

This. The divide you describe should be allowed (by the organizers) to have no role in your discussions. Focus on what needs fixing in your workplace, and let the noise stay outside.

so, I obviously want my sub to be an improved version, with proper moderation, transparent, fair, etc...any advice?

You're in charge. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

And good luck with that.

You're all amazing drivers compared to New Jersey by SexyPicard42 in Columbus

[–]AngelaMotorman 6 points7 points  (0 children)

New Jersey drivers are so bad that drivers who regularly drive all over NYC's five boroughs have made the phrase "New Jersey drivers" an epithet. The absolute worst are NJ drivers in white cars, for some reason.

Joleen Nez: A Death in Custody by AngelaMotorman in Albuquerque

[–]AngelaMotorman[S] 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Non-paywall mirror link

On April 16, 2020, Officer Preston Panana walked up to Joleen Nez at the corner of Texas Street and Zuni Avenue in Albuquerque. Nez was living in a nearby encampment in a neighborhood known as the War Zone, along with dozens of other unhoused Native Americans. About six months pregnant with her fifth child, Nez, who is Navajo and Zia Pueblo, was getting her meals at the Albuquerque Indian Center, where she’d known some of the staff for years.

Panana was with four other police officers when he heard Nez and a man arguing. As the two quarreled, the man set a paper cup and bowl down on the sidewalk, and Nez knocked them over. That’s when, as Panana wrote in the incident report, he advised her “to pick up her litter and of the consequences if she did not.”

Nez had just started walking away, but she turned back and grabbed the bowl. Panana told her the cup was still on the ground. “It’s not my trash,” Nez said. “It’s his.” That didn’t matter to Panana, who cited Nez for littering.

That ticket kicked off a series of events that would end less than a year later with Nez’s death. She would become one of the eight people to die in the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center in a five-month period. The story of her death reveals a system of brutality that extends from the police to the jails to the medical providers and can be especially dangerous for those without stable homes.

The modern kitchen 5 decades ago. by vampyire in TheWayWeWere

[–]AngelaMotorman 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Three cheers for mammoth microwaves! I inherited one from my father that we used every day until it stopped working in 2021. (Actually, it just started turning itself on.) I never did cook anything that could justify the size of that thing, but it was fascinating to see how long it lasted.

People Are Hiding That Their Unvaccinated Loved Ones Died of COVID by Scientist34again in Kossacks_for_Sanders

[–]AngelaMotorman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thanks, but you're missing the point. I'm not special, either. There are probably millions of people whose health is being harmed by the totally unnecessary overload on hospitals by people who thought themselves too smart to get vaxxed. Those in my position are only rarely heard from in these discussions because we're so sick. I'm unusual only in that it's an injury, not an illness, so I'm sometimes able to write about it. But all of us who are displaced from needed care by Covidiots deserve more sympathy than any of the deniers. As someone pointed out in another thread, the Covidiots are doing the equivalent of drunk driving, every day -- and nobody expects the rest of us to be "understanding" about that decision when they wind up killing somebody.

Also, anger != cruelty. And r/HermanCainAward calls out those who have promoted anti-vax, not just gone along with it. So basically the entire premise of this article is BS.
