I sip my morning coffee as I look out my front window. The neighbors lawns are getting knee high and overgrowing with briar. I mutter, "yes, yes" into my mug as I go full sicko mode.

PDX pol / landlords 

@Byte If you want to go to court, but all the landlord has to do in court is show contradictory evidence. You have to take video of every inch of the place the day you move in (with things to prove the date) and the day you move out. If you go through all of that and can afford to fight it in court for the $2K you are losing, then you probably will get it.

But is that realistic at all?

for those who don't live here, or moved here recently, before the protections were in place it was pretty much a coin-flip if you would get any of your security deposit back at all no matter the condition of the place.

If you moved in and there was an old broken stove, then they can upgrade it when you move out and take your whole security deposit to pay for it.

Portland city council voted today to rollback renter protections that kept landlords from arbitrarily docking security deposits. So, now Portland landlords are once again able to do things like decide that the carpet needs to be replaced, no matter what condition it's in, and quote you 100% of your deposit for their labor.

I need to read it in full, but it sure sound to me like SCOTUS just said that all of what was left of treaties with first nations are thrown out. They are declaring the land belongs to the states, and that state police can enforce state law on first nation land.

Also, they overturned their precedent from two years ago. At this point any decorum about "precedent" is doublespeak.

Nothing short of the abolition of the white supremacist settler state will be enough. Land Back is the only viable policy.

This SCOTUS decision is awful.

The opening to the album, Come Heroine, stuns me every time I listen to it. Then I spend the rest of the album trying to recover, but never being able to. Then the album switches gears and calls itself off for being emo and starts actually plotting to be more than old relationships and take care of friends.

@lunasspecto I'm 100% guessing here, but I think with the feds seizing phones and such from John Eastman there might be some justice department action happening very soon, and the committee wants to say some things before that happens.

@crashglasshouses It's a bit of a rude joke and I was trying to be nice by not pulling it on you "what is ligma" is the trigger of the joke hence the "oh no"

The response is:

"LIGMA BALLS/CUNT!!!"

I always forget that the "Metaverse" is a real thing, and not just failed vaporware that Facebook whiffed on.
