Here's how much profit Big Oil raked in last quarter: Shell: $9.1 billion Chevron: $6.3 billion BP: $6.2 billion Exxon: $5.4 billion They’re not raising prices to cover their costs—they’re raising prices to pad their profits.

This is no surprise to us. We hear about these horrid and violent encounters all the time from Black/Middle Eastern youth and young men. A thread below how the policing system by design cannot eliminate those racial disparities as suggested by Chief Bell. ottawacitizen.com/news/ottaw…

Every empirical study of Twitter has shown a right-wing bias: "Our results reveal a remarkably consistent trend: In 6 out of 7 countries studied, the mainstream political right enjoys higher algorithmic amplification than the mainstream political left." cdn.cms-twdigitalassets.com/…

So I presented a whole thread of scientific evidence, but if you like anecdotes better: I once had an entire network of far-right accounts creating imposter accounts using my image — with a bullet hole through my forehead. It took over 6 months to get them taken down.

It's intentional disinformation, it's organized lies to fabricate fear and distrust
Oil is a global commodity and priced on world markets. Anyone blaming their political opponents for high oil and gas prices are naive

Please don’t misrepresent what that was about. Cell phone companies are ALREADY collecting that data. Health Canada simply purchased it.

So let me get this straight: 70% of Americans support Roe V Wade, yet, the 30% who oppose it get to set policy?

Post-vaccination infections DO NOT mean vaccines don’t work. Remember, they are preventatives, NOT cures. One can still contract COVID once vaccinated. As long as that vaccine is preventing you from facing severe disease and worse, it IS working and doing what it was designed to.

I don’t see a difference between the trucker protest supporters who feel we don’t have “democracy” because they weren’t getting their own personal wishes fulfilled and those who make the same argument over PR. I’ve heard the exact same rhetoric from the left. Exactly the same.

When RWNJ (Right Wing Not Journalists) like @TristinHopper start spewing lines like how Liberals are snowflakes, just remember they will block anyone for pointing out they are wrong

Actually, human rights aren't limited by borders, so yes we very much do. Maybe you should start keeping your own opinions to yourself, it may mean you won't have anything to publish again but, trust me, no one will notice.

I've been sitting here safely in a Blue state not understanding why my elected officials are still playing nice. I want to see the most strictest gun laws ever; insurance, lockboxes, home visits, 98% tax on ammo, limit on magazines. If red states can go nuts so can blue

May is Mental Health Awareness month. I was saddened to learn this morning of Naomi Judd’s passing due to mental illness. So many people are fighting battles with their brain chemicals. We know not what others are going through. Be kind.

Friends - stop reading about covid. Me - it's a once in a lifetime global event that affects everyone's life and long term health, including children. I wanna know everything I should know to protect myself and others and it is bizarre to me that you & others don't do the same.

Honestly. Civilians are dying in Ukraine. Children are starving in Yemen. And the people protesting in downtown #Ottawa still have the guts to demand “freedom”? In a country with health care, public education, social services and a democratically elected government?

Them: The COVID-19 vaccines don’t work. The majority of hospitalizations are fully vaccinated. Me: Base Rate Fallacy would like a word with you.

I don't know about you, but I am creeped out that Elon Musk is one of only 22 accounts followed by Putin's official Twitter account @KremlinRussia_E, and that Musk, on a Whim?, just bought this social media platform.

If we let popular belief overrule science people would still believe the earth is fla... ffs

Pythagoras theorized the earth was round at around 500 BC and Eratosthenes proved it around 240 BC. Yet here we are. So is anyone surprised that this anti mask argument is still going on? Look I get it, your tired, but don't ignore the science for convenience.
When someone who makes 50k/yr spends 50k every year (living paycheque to paycheque) they 100% support the economy. When a billionaire spends a million a year and makes 2 million every year, they are draining the economy by 100% every year. That's why we have inflation
If you're going to preach about how billionaires should spend their money, you might consider doing it from the food bank or shelter where you are donating your time. All of us have a role to play. Are you doing your part?
