Iran is probably going to be part of the New Axis, unfortunately. We should have gotten them on our side when we had the chance.
#BREAKING: @JakeSullivan46 announces today that the U.S. has intelligence that #Iran is preparing to provide #Russia with UAVs for use in #Ukraine and to train Moscow on how to use them.

Any real YIMBY should proudly NIMBY suburban sprawl especially over greenfields.
I may be a YIMBY, but I don't like the new suburbs being built out in Bethany, OR. Yes, Portland has a severe housing shortage. But it's farcical to build single family homes on farmland 30+ mins from downtown. That maximizes commute times, infrastructure impact, climate impact.

Imagine being unable to grasp that the cost to build housing and housing affordability are related. We don’t just advocate to make building homes less expensive. We want a public builder. We want to house every homeless person as a right. We want TO to do so much better.
Ever heard developer say: “That tax/fee for my project was just right.” Me neither. YIMBYs r a combination of ppl on the Real Estate industry payroll & ppl too dumb to know that the only folks who say these things r being paid. Developers r laughing at them from their yachts. https://t.co/OxxtFhek0i https://t.co/xkWzITY1iw

Lots of people dunking on this, but I think it's a great idea. Getting a large number of people to reduce their meat consumption is probably way more effective than getting a very small number of people to cut meat out of their diet entirely.
