@knittingknots2 None of those states are “East Coast,” are they? (Not snark— puzzled)

TRUTH is drowning in American culture.

Between the media’s pigheaded refusal to report unvarnished, unbiased FACTS, the uncontrolled marketing & usage of AI, foreign power misinformation bots, the apparent inability of any Republican or GOP media to speak the truth, and Trump’s incoherent and relentless lies, we don’t know anymore what is factual & what is MAGA’s magical thinking.

Pres. Biden’s Administration has racked up remarkable achievements since his inauguration, but millions of Americans are grimly unaware and will vote accordingly.

🚨We have a responsibility to tell the truth about Democrats’ agenda & Pres. Biden’s accomplishments.

🚨We have a responsibility to tell the truth about Trump’s plans to destroy our democracy, beginning with the US Constitution.

Was just taking a spider outside and five jets flew overhead in formation. Two blue, two white, one orange. I think. Looks like they were following Hwy 24 west-to-east. Fleet Week isn’t til October. What the fuck?

There used to be an air show in Watsonville this weekend…maybe there’s one in the Bay Area?

Perhaps it’s important to say, for those of you not in the same loop I’m in, that my friends & colleagues in Israel are in the streets demonstrating against the war and the corrupt Netanyahu government every day. The families of the hostages are also out in the streets demanding new elections. Every death - Palestinian and Israeli - is heartbreaking.

And for anyone thinking that trump is going to be a great friend to Israel, he’s not. Netanyahu and trump are bit from the same cloth. Both are dangerous.

I just noticed auto-correct screwed up “vidi”
Serves me right for being a smart ass.

I did take Latin and LUVVVVVVED it…great foundation for French & medical/legal work, too. Still remember how excited I was the first day as a freshman in Latin. (8 years of Catholic school behind me when much was still in Latin).

Yours was funnier. 😁

@cynblogger@sfba.social avatar

Just my opinion, but as a tech pioneer from the 1970’s, I think AI in all of its current incarnations should be withdrawn from usage & commercial development halted until all copyrights are respected, no personal images (recognizable faces) are allowed, all deep fake technology banned with significant penalties attached, and the current hot mess cleaned the hell up.

It wasn’t ready for marketable use, it’s dangerous currently, and it will only get exponentially worse if left to grow like the cancer it presently is.

The United States may have never held a presidential election in which the voting public was so badly misinformed. We can blame biased news media, scammers on social media, foreign interference, and politicians who intentionally mislead us. But ultimately, voters must learn to separate fact from falsehood.

Will misinformation decide the 2024 presidential election? https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/4685012-misinformation-2024-presidential-election/

How many "tragic mistakes" does a country need to make in the course of just a couple of months before they re-evaluate themselves?

(Rhetorical question ... expressed out of deep frustration)

@cynblogger@sfba.social avatar

I don’t believe these are “mistakes,” nor do I believe he thinks they are “tragic.”

Interesting how he blithely ignores the right to protest in the First Amendment yet relies on it so heavily for his own hate-filled rants, including threats against jurists & their families.

I'm putting this out there to any speakers. I'm looking to practice my listening comprehension. Looking for some sort of audio in Hungarian that has a transcript, also in Hungarian. I'm hoping repeated listening while following along on paper will help me improve.

They were never "losers" or "suckers." They were great human beings who chose a hard path for many different reasons. They loved their country. They made sacrifices for the person on their left and right.

A person who doesn't even attempt to understand that bond should never be Commander in Chief.

I'm looking forward to teaching at the college level again this fall, in the music department at Wellesley College. Just starting to put together my syllabi for American Popular Music and Sound Art With Electronics. Is there anything you'd wish you had learned about either of those topics in your early 20s?

@cynblogger@sfba.social avatar

Getting this generation acquainted with the music of 1930-1950 would be an eye & ear opener for them.

There were so many times I assumed my husband would never survive the war. So many of our friends died. So many of our friends became widows. I buried him so many times in my mind. And now tonight it’s a gorgeous night and he’s putting steaks on the grill, and our kids are setting the table, and I feel so fucking lucky. I am so lucky. Never forget the families who weren’t as lucky as mine.
