Pretty sure Clyde knocked back some tequila last night. But more importantly I’m happy to report that our party lasted til about 3:30 am neither Gavin Newsom nor the cops showed up. At one point we about 30 people sitting around the fire with everyone taking a minute or two to introduce themselves and say what’s on their mind. It was a truly diverse crowd in the best sense of it, with liberals, conservatives, MAGA people and Biden voters. (Plus white people, black people, asian people, gay people and straight people, but I don’t care about that sort of stuff!)
Barely anyone was touching their phone all night so I didn’t get pics but we had lots of folks you guys know from the show including Peter Boghossian, Karlyn Boreseynko, Dr, Drew, Melissa Chen, Chris Rufo, Faisal Al-Mutar, Nick Gillespie and some others.
I’ve got a bit of a headache and lots of cleaning to do, but feeling pretty inspired that we can still get together and break bread (or drink tequila) with friends and nobody left angry even though the conversation sometimes got hot.
The theme definitely was America is worth saving and that we all can be part of the solution. Our work is cut out for us.
Anyway, hope you all had a great night too and have a relaxing weekend in front of you...
Facebook has upheld Donald Trump’s suspension but will revisit the decision in six months. (Ridiculous for many reasons including that more coordination for January 6th happened on Facebook than anywhere else...including Parler.)
Curious if you guys are even on Facebook anymore. I see lots of messages from people who have deleted it or just don’t use it. Are there any features that you miss which we should incorporate here on Locals?
A big welcome to all the new folks who joined the community today! (And yes I’ll be signing those cards and mailing them out to you ASAP!)
While we do plenty of politics and culture around here it’s also a lot of pet and food pics. And since we have so many new members today it seems like a good time to start a pet pic thread. Here’s Clyde...now everyone introduce your furry friends!
