It’s not news that Elon Musk took ownership of Twitter yesterday. But the impacts of what that means are likely not visible to all Americans. And that’s exactly how Twitter has always wanted it. Anyone who expected this to improve under Musk’s ‘guidance’ was fooling themselves. Elon made it PAINFULLY obvious that he and Twitter are willing to allow racists and NAZIs to flood the platform with the N***** word and pro Hitler memes and tweets, but NOT willing to allow a DECORATED VETERAN WHO, AS A CONSTITUENT, IS UNHAPPY WITH THE SHITTY, SHITTY, SHITTY JOB THAT LAUREN BOEBERT IS DOING in her district, to say so.
You don’t have to look for long to see what I mean. Reports of racist and pro-NAZI tweets flooded the internet last night. Here are just a few:
Elon Musk and Twitter allowed the racism and the NAZIsm to permeate and remain on the platform for hours. Some reports suggest that a few of those tweets ARE STILL UP AND LIVE on Musk’s new Fascist toy at this time! Meanwhile, DECORATED VETERANS with legitimate concerns about how THEIR CONGRESSWOMAN IN COLORADO’S THIRD CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT is harming veterans and INTENTIONALLY FAILING to represent Democrats in her district, were IMMEDIATELY FLAGGED as violating the “hatred” policy.
Here is my tweet, which earned me a 12-hour ban. Even though I’m a constituent. Even though I’m a veteran. Twitter, and Elon Musk, felt that it was more important to allow RACISTS and NAZIs to have free speech, but SILENCED veterans like me who dared to speak up. This was my response to Boebert’s idiotic whining rant about the diesel fuel supply:
Telling Lauren Boebert to go “SIT ON A CACTUS,” an OBVIOUS bit of sarcasm, was somehow MORE HATEFUL than all of the ‘Heil Bitchler’ and N-word hate, vitriol, and VIOLENCE that spilled forth from right wing accounts. The mere fact that I’m NOT a Republican makes me a threat to them. Never mind their ACTUAL VIOLENCE.
Please, share this post. Put this on BLAST! Elon Musk MUST NOT GET AWAY WITH THE NAZIFICATION OF TWITTER!!!!!! Or America, for that matter. Help me fight back!!!

Laura Ingraham, a Fox News reporter known for her dishonesty and lack of integrity being carefully rolled up into a pseudo-Christian mess of commandments-smashing behaviors, has managed to get Twitter to discriminate against liberal veterans who dare to mention that her character profile isn’t compatible with the teachings of Jesus. This is further proof that Twitter is biased against The Left, practices inconsistent application of its own rules, and willfully and blatantly violates the rights of U.S. veterans. Anyone who doesn’t agree with Laura or Twitter, is silenced. Case in point:
I was baptized and confirmed in the United Methodist Church (a Christian church that worships Jesus) here in Grand Junction, Colorado, in middle school. Laura Ingraham does not have a unique claim to Christianity. She cannot claim harassment along religious lines, simply because another Christian mentions Jesus to her. PERIOD.
As a decorated veteran who served during two Republican wars to protect the Constitutional rights of all Americans (even hateful, brainless cads like Laura), I take exceptional offense to this unequal application of “rights” which allows a hateful shrew to enjoy her speech, while a decorated veteran is shut up. Repeatedly.
The simple truth is that most of what Lauren vomits up on Faux News is decidedly UN-Christian. As is pretty much the entire platform of the Republican Party. They have opened their arms and welcomed NAZIs, violent extremists, murderers, wife beaters, truth deniers, and the lot. You can fill out an entire ream of paper with the list of evil-doers to whom they have made their party a home.
But stand up to them on Twitter, and Elon Musk will have you suspended. So much for free speech.

This will come as a surprise to nobody, but Elon Musk and the Republican Party couldn’t care less about freedoms. Freedom of speech in particular. This photo proves that Twitter will continue to operate with bias against THE LEFT while protecting and supporting VIOLENT TERRORISTS on ‘the right.’ Fuck Elon. Fuck Twitter. Fuck the GOP!

I finally did it. I dove back into 3D design. And, of course, as per my norm I did so by picking a project that had less than a day left before the final deadline, and shortly after a new, full-version release of Blender was published, with which I had zero acquaintance when I began. So, naturally, I failed. =-/ I’l chalk it up to a learning experience.
The project was for the Master Builder’s competition on Upland.me. The models themselves are fairly simple, so in a way it was a wise place to pick 3D modeling back up. But not with less than 24 hours to learn the new software AND copy a building from scratch. I actually got pretty close. I completed the design of the model. I would have had to still bake textures for each of the 4 required mesh, upload the model to a preview site, make thumbnails, reduce the triangles to below 10,000, and then upload to Upland.
But hey, not bad for a first try, right? And a new competition kicked off this week, with several days remaining! =-)
This is actually a few days old now, but it’s my first video on TikTok to do well in quite some time, so I figured I had better post it here:
