furries on furry / Re: your most hated thing about furry.

One big issue I dislike about furry and try to change  is how  furries  deal with  the younger and older members  outside the demographic. We had  and incident  at anther fur group shunning  and insulting and elderly member. Then I feel general (not   specifically adult  like meting at a bar) furcons  should serve the whole community. I do not by banning under 18 reason about insurance but    lack  of social skill of  20 - 30 somthings  leaders  to deal with those outside the peer group. For  me a  a Christian is  an 18+ 21+ con is usually a red flag to stay away. My only  only experience  with  18+ multi genre  convention is people getting drunk and acting  immoral is they want to. The idea of  adult does not mean acting as a mature  adult.

If I was  running a con my policy is  leaders  will serve the  community, young and old  or get out and if you do not like kids ruining around then I can suggest stay home of find a bar.

I agree. Many furs when they get interviewed by certain media go about how furry is welcoming. But to who? Seems old furs like me seem to be ignored by the younger furs who don't talk to me and only seem to stick to themselves.

We needed to weld stuff in the prototype shop. The factory tool room is busy, so I found and set up an old welder that was sitting in the corner. It took a lot of finagling, but eventually I got all the setting right and could make a decent weld. To paraphrase my boss:

"Wow, that thing actually works?!"

I spent my day at a local animal rescue centre, playing with a 7 year old female malamute named Kimba.

My friends are adopting a 7 year old male eurasier from there (a super-fluffy, medium-sized Spitz breed from Germany) called Kronus, and have their home visit to check their house is suitable on Thursday.
As with all new inventions the use of electronics should allow for
backups that can replace devices that provide what we need
to survive. Like water, waste removal, food, transportation,
and heating our. personal environments.

Currently we are not doing these things. So any disaster that
shuts down power and or communication will put our lives at risk.

It's a catch 22 because the electronics cut costs, but providing
backups would remove the cost savings. This would be an
deterrent to advances in electronics. So we have to decide if we
want to put those in the future at risk or not. Unfortunately it's
likely big business and the rich who will decide. As we know
their decisions follow the money, not our lives.

The immigration problem continues. Trump is trying to blame the
Democrats even though the GOP controls both houses of congress
and Trump is there to  sign any bill they may create. So Trump has
no legitimate excuse to blame the democrats. He  won't admit those
GOP who run congress won't agree to pass any bill he wants. It's
easier to just blame the democrats who won't help him.

The Trump administration is claiming the kids they are ripping from
their parents are being treated very well. They might be treated well
physically, but not mentally. Tiny kids are screaming and crying with
not even a offer of condolence by anyone. I don't know about anyone
else, but I can remember being that age. I would  have learned to hate
under these conditions. It's this time in ones life we learn how to care
and have sympathy for others.

All the Trump administration is doing is creating hundreds oif not thousands
of future people who will hate the united states. They may not even be able
to love anyone, much less care for others.  So if they come here as adults
they may be the criminals Trump claims all immigrants are.

We can lie to ourselves and say it's the parents fault. we can claim it's drug
dealers using kids to get across the boarder though this is extremeely rare.
Trumps lackies will use any excuse to support Trumps orders, no matter how
wrong or cruel they are.

Trump and his lackeys claim they are following the law, but it's nothing but
a policy created by the Trump administration. It has nothing to do with
a law. It's just Trump wanting to please the far right who voted for him.
There is no excuse to separated parents from their kids when they ask
for asylum in our country. Yet Trump wants it done.

Some may think they are supposed to respect the president, in the case
of Trump there is no cause for respect, much less the GOP.

After world war one many people felt they were disadvantaged by
minorities and immigrants. So fascism reared its ugly head.
America n the 1930's was filled with hardship for many people . High
unemployment fed fears that immigrants would take jobs. So when
Jewish children tried to escape fascism in Europe the US government
 sent them back to die in concentration camps. Now we are turning
people away who are only trying  escape being killed by gangs we
sent back to their country in the first place.
When world war 2 started the US government put Japanese Americans
in camps. Leaving their property unprotected. Even German Americans
were treated unfairly.

We are all immigrants or descendants of them in this country.  We should
feel shame when any one is treated like we are treating people trying to
escape tyranny  in their own country. Namely Latinos from Central and
south America.

The Supreme Court struck another blow to voting rights. They allowed Ohio
to remove people from the voting roles if they didn't vote for two years. This
puts a disadvantage agains the poor and minorities.
