Hard to imagine that a Final Solution existed pre cellphones.

Brookings' article on today's tech hearing. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/techtank/2020/07/29/in-congresss-big-tech-hearing-look-beyond-technology-policy/

I also have a phone call on it tomorrow for cle credit.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

uh oh.
Time to ask Mr TM for a newer thread ....

rse

At the bottom of the piece--

Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are general, unrestricted donors to the Brookings Institution. The findings, interpretations, and conclusions posted in this piece are solely those of the author and not influenced by any donation.

rse, as if a government speech regulator is the answer. (Likely get called a tax, thus constitutional by you know who). Not that I expect Congress to do anything but set up campaign ads.

from the AP story; Floyd died after an officer pressed his knew [sic] into Floyd’s neck for nearly eight minutes.

We change that sentence every time AP runs it because the inference is that the officer killed Floyd. Nothing, of course, about the fentanyl, other co-morbidities, or his past record.

I have written the AP standards guy about it, to no avail ... but you could figure that out.

Brookings' article

rse, you read beyond the second, unprofessional, graf?

Cuomo blames de Blasio’s Rikers releases, anti-cop attitude for NYC crime wave

He's half right. The other half is looking at him in the mirror: Destroy half a million jobs, close down or severely restrict all forms of entertainment and leisure activities, close the schools, what the f*** did he think would happen?

Note the massive goalpost shifting in the ZH piece at 2:42:

although these states (and many others) are now improving by some measures, a major factor in determining state reopening and consumer activity will likely be the level of new confirmed cases, not just the trajectory.

Wherever there's improvement, there needs to be more before giving people their freedoms back.

I saw that last night while looking for something else. Can you imagine some idiot inflicting that on themselves?

I remember voting Republican for the first time ever and thinking, my grandmother is probably rolling over in her grave right now. She basically raised my sister and I and I can't tell you how many times we heard the, "I raised 5 kids during the depression," speech a million times. She worked in the shoe factory's in Marlboro and she was a devout democrat. Pictures of JFK adorned every wall. So I think many people vote for the party that daddy voted for, like a family tradition ignorant of party's platform.

jimmyk

Mrs K, no fan of the Obamas, for some reason read Mo's memoir and thought it was wonderful. I almost sprained a muscle trying to keep my eyes from rolling too obviously. Maybe there are elements of a good story in her upbringing and family, but it's rather clear her path was paved by affirmative action and political connections, not ability or brains.

Rocco

Iggy, is that a mackerel? Terrible food, great bait.

lyle

Plus her claiming victimhood after all that she was handed, jimmyk. FTS

Captain Hate

So I think many people vote for the party that daddy voted for, like a family tradition ignorant of party's platform.

That was the case with me. My father died early in Reagan's first term. I know he was happy he won but that was before the RINO term became popular so I don't know how conservative he really was. I know he voted for Nixon and then felt betrayed by him so it's too bad I couldn't discuss it with him in terms related to the more recent attempted coup.

Michelle is past her Sell-By date.

But then she was when she was "working" in Chicago.

James D.

Ig @ 2:01

I can't even feel sorry for the business owners, because they completely caved to the mob.

The only reasonable answer to such idiocy is:

"Fuck you. It's obviously not a Confederate Flag, and we're not taking it down, and maybe you ought to go buy yourself a history book or a World Atlas or maybe a few brain cells before you crawl out from under your rock again."

James D.

sbw, Michelle never HAD a sell-by date. She's more like a defective product that somehow made it past the quality control in the factory and by the time anyone realized it, it was too late to return her for a refund.

Old Lurker

From ZH: "Here, after several weeks of increased virus spread, nearly 80% of the US is currently in a state with an elevated level of at least 100 per new daily cases per million residents."

That is 1 new case for every 10,000 people.

Almost all of whom will barely if at all know it.

Almost none of whom will die of it or with it.

Who would win a subject matching verb contest: Big Mike or LeBron?

Threadkiller

It appears as though the “tech giants” are not able to block conservative voices to the extent that the Dems feel they deserve in return for allowing the monopolies to grow and exist in their present form.

This hearing is designed to remove the forums altogether in “my ball, play my way” fashion.

MissMarple2

A dem member of my family, who made a successful career in retail management in the fashion industry and who did NOTgo to college (raising 2 children besides while doing this, both of whom are successful) thinks Michelle is the neatest thing since sliced bread, loved her book, and thought she had a great fashion sense (never mind if any of her customers had been presented with some of those get-ups, they would have been insulted.

Retweeted by the President. Link goes to the article (By the Texas Secretary of Energy, I believe):

https://www.houstonchronicle.com/opinion/outlook/article/Secretary-of-Energy-COVID-19-brought-oil-gas-Trump-15394017.php

Headline: Secretary of Energy: COVID-19 brought oil and gas down, but Trump is powering a comeback

(This is from July 8, but since the President retweeted it, I felt like he wanted to emphasize it today.)

We're listening to Biden's remarks on Howie Carr's show. Does anyone really think he will debate Trump?

Captain Hate

Judging from Sundown's proficiency in buying paste selecting a VP running mate, what could go wrong in a national emergency?

Captain Hate

No, Marlene; I think Notre Dame knew it would never happen so why waste money planning for it when there's a financially inept bunch of dumbasses at Crewe to witlessly jump in.

CNBC's story is full of words like 'false' and 'misinformation' regarding these doctors speaking out for HCQ.

Then there's the clincher:

Dr. Simone Gold, the group’s leader, is reportedly a Trump supporter who has advocated the use of hydroxychloroquine on conservative talk radio and podcasts.

Ok, then. I don't know exactly what they said in their presser, but I saw their YouTube video a week or two ago, and it was pretty mainstream. They didn't claim a 100% cure rate, just that it was effective.

Also, if I may say, Dr. Simone Gold is rather hawt.

I know it is a crazy thought but I believe Biden will not select a woman of color but a white guy like Newsom or Cuomo for the electoral votes just so he can claim he came close to winning.

Change my mind:)
