Re: what symbols?
Someone else had a shirt with "6MWE" on it (for "Six Million Wasn't Enough"), so definitely Nazi.

It looks like "sedition" fits the bill better than "treason":
"If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, **or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States**, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both."
Leftpondians of a certain age will remember "Girder & Panel" sets which were great for quickly building skyscrapers and city scenes in general (then destroying them with other toys);
Then there was Riviton, which was great fun, but was recalled when two kids choked on the rubber "rivets":
Spain said recently that they'd be favourable to Scotland joining the EU (as long as it's an independent country fist):
From the article:
"In all, the ad is saying that healthcare is personal to Joe Biden because his son died; that as a father, he believes the best and most legitimate way to honor his dead son’s legacy would be to implement further incremental regulatory reform, along the lines of what Barack Obama did; and that people who disagree and think that radical reform is necessary—among them, presumably, the 80 percent or so of Democrats who say it’s important to nominate a presidential candidate who supports Medicare for All—are dishonoring his son’s legacy. A hell of a pitch!"
If I were voting it would be for the Greens, as only they are offering M4A.
I suspect that Debian/Devuan (and Slackware) will continue to support 32-bit for a long time yet (Debian still supports PowerPC, 68k and SPARC, after all!) which is why I generally recommend antiX, MX Linux or Refracta on 32-bit machines, and EXE or Q4OS for those who prefer KDE3-style retro looks.
Probably something with a Core2Duo or equivalent CPU, that can handle at least 3 or 4 Gb RAM and an SSD, so what would have been a high-end machine around 2007 or 2008. Laptops of that era often have decent (non-chiclet) keyboards, too. I have a couple of Pentium M (i.e. single-core) machines from 2006 that (IMO) are just about acceptable (running Linux) but whose limitations would probably not be tolerated by most users today.
Got a black Macbook 2,1 for €20 a couple of years ago, fitted it with a new battery (another €20 from Aliexpress) and Librebooted it (it's one of the few machines that can be modified entirely in software). Currently running Trisquel Lite to keep it fully "libre". Lent it to my daughter as an emergency PC for university, though she complained about the weight...
Of course, as it's libre, there are no drivers for the webcam (a plus in my book) but you can easily attach one via USB if necessary.
The only problem is that it gets hot quite quickly - some people have drilled holes in the underside in front of the internal fan to improve ventilation, but I haven't been that brave yet.
The "ever closer union" was implied in the first bullet point in the government's 1975 referendum pamphlet, as well as explicitly stated in the Treaty of Rome, so we were obviously OK with it then:
"The aims of the Common Market are:
To bring together the peoples of Europe.
To raise living standards and improve working conditions.
To promote growth and boost world trade.
To help the poorest regions of Europe and the rest of the world.
To help maintain peace and freedom."
"Determined to lay the foundations of an ever closer union among the peoples of Europe"
