    I'm mystified why you think these two things are related in any way.

    I just don't care enough to judge whether it's dumb or not. It isn't for me, and that's fine. If this was wealthy white idiots pushing for it, then yeah this might be just silly virtue signaling. But it isn't. So, whatever.

    Sh-t sh-t sh-t our swing voter is upset. No one tell him that Biden has endorsed the Native American tribe credited for inventing modern day lacrosse to fly under their tribal nation’s flag at the Olympics in 2028 for lacrosse. That’s even more meaningless and hurtful to native tribes who haven’t yet forgiven the United States for the slaughter and removal of their people because they also made this request as well. Strawmen are big in some of their cultures though, so I’ve heard.

    I'm sure they'll miss you.

    I hate to engage a disingenuous troll, but I don't get the big deal here. It's one small, very specific area, where they're putting secondary signs in native american languages. They aren't rolling it out city-wide, and certainly not state-wide.

    Is it a poor use of city funds? Maybe? But easy for us to judge as white dudes, isn't it?

    This likely means something to people that aren't you or me. It doesn't impact us in any way. It isn't likely to be spread anywhere outside this section of one small exurb.


    So please, explain to me how this is indicative of people losing their minds?
    Cause Drew is bugged by it. Don't do things that bug Drew. Then everything will be ok.

    Plus, it's a fun language. Let's put diacritical marks on every letter!
