Link Love

I can’t believe this. Tom Cotton is running unopposed. WTF is wrong with you, DNC? (Apparently they had one, but he dropped out AFTER the deadline. Jerk.)

Things you can to do support the black community and promote anti-racist efforts in Portland.

Here’s information on an amendment in congress that you can call to support regarding the federal crackdown on protests (it takes away their funding).

Here is detailed information on mask policies and the ADA.  Well worth the read if you’ve been following the right wing attempt to pretend to be disabled to somehow cheat the system into not wearing a mask at Costco or whatever.  Or if you own a store etc. Just good information all around.

Here is information from IPUMS on how to protest ending the 2020 Census early.

If you are unemployed or otherwise struggling, Ipickuppennies has concrete suggestions for what to do and where to get help.

Remember this crazy story?  It gets crazier.

Alternatives to wrapping paper.  (We pretty much just use gift bags and tissue paper that we’ve been gifted or really nice ones from shopping at fancy places.  I keep them in a cupboard in the great room.)

    We’ve been reusing tissue paper and gift bags for years because I hate the waste of disposing of them after a single use. It’d be nice to switch to cloth but I think there’s always going to be a use for gift wrapping for people who you aren’t close enough to to do a cloth bag exchange with. I don’t have a good / cheap enough fabric supply to do that. Also I’d have to hand sew my bags!

    Mostly focused on this for the moment because everything else is just too much bad right now but I’ve been simmering over a lot of these items all week.
