If you believe is a true ->
Elvis is living in your bathroom & I'm a white woman too.

Israel is a entity.

You're a fool to believe anything their PR or US govt PR says.

Your choice to stay a fool though.

The Nevada Current telling it like it is in #headline and lede:

Trump, RNC promise ‘aggressive’ election interference in battleground states

"Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee on Friday announced a “100,000 person strong” program designed to harass #election officials and their employees and discredit #democracy in Nevada and a dozen other states."

But hey, at least we still have the Single Market™, amirite?

🇺🇸🇺🇦 As the U.S.-approved aid bill for Ukraine makes its way to the president's desk, I'm reminded of a painting by Ukraine's folk art heroine, Maria Prymachenko 🌻

🌻 On my recent humanitarian volunteer trip to Kyiv and Kherson, I learned about Maria Prymachenko (1909-1997), a renowned Ukrainian folk artist. Her vibrant works serve as a powerful symbol of Ukrainian resilience.

Disheartening seeing so many cosplay militarized trucks in AZ with trump/anti President Biden messages. Black, lifted w/black US Flag sticker, gun sticker & hate message. Just saw one with vanity AZ plate H8B1DEN. Emailed MVD to ask if H8tRUMP was ok.

To them the US means hate/violence often with cross/christian sticker (cause Jesus preached violence/hate).

I think many Biden supporters don't display for fear of intimidation. Hope it's not like this everywhere?

If you’ve arrived at the conclusion that Dems and GOP are “two sides of the same coin” and that America is just as vicious, corrupt, and lawless as all the rest, then you’re doing the fascists’ work for them.

Which isn’t to say that America isn’t rife with injustice—both in the present and past—nor that our record of engagement with the world is beyond reproach.

It’s only to say that the world is complicated and not everything exists on the same moral plane.

“I don’t understand why everything is so fucked up and we seem incapable of fixing any of it!”

This is because you believe you live in a democracy when you actually live under capitalism.

(And it is functioning exactly as designed.)

PS. Not your fault; you’ve been taught your whole life that the two are complementary when they’re diametrically-opposed.

At long last, the U.S. House of Representatives has passed a bill funding further military aid to , by a vote of 311 to 112.

Among Democrats, the vote was 210–0;
Republicans: 101–112.

Why Speaker Mike Johnson did this now rather than in February, resulting in a loss of thousands of lives and significant territory for Ukraine, has yet to be adequately explained.

Is plagiarism inherent in AI's (lack of) ethics?

The case of Jürgen Schmidhuber's pioneering work on neural networks plagiarized by Bengio, Hinton, and LeCun, by Jürgen Schmidhuber:

Image credit: Jürgen Schmidhuber, with color touches by me, outlining clues contained in this highly informative (but probably intentionally left flat) sketch by the author.

Its all Big corps are cutting, copying and pasting other people's work and they are doing it without compensating the folks that are actually doing or did the work.
The are creating a new set of laws just for themselves. The theory is that when you steal enough stuff from enough people it becomes normal, expected and OK.
See playbook chapter tRump, rule 1; anything done while concentrating wealth is OK.

Can anyone find a link to this statement on the web? It's not linked in the Guardian piece, and all web searches are giving me is news media articles, many of which don't even mention it.

In a democracy, it's not the role of government to decide for the public what's information and what's "misinformation" or "disinformation". That's for a free press and public debate to determine.

In this context, Xitter is a printing company serving millions of one-person newsletters. Printing companies should not be censoring the newsletters they print on a government's behalf.

What Xitter's recommendation algorithms are amplifying is a separate issue.

Hey folks:

Looks like I'll be on Velshi on MSNBC tomorrow at about 10AM ET talking about violent GOP rhetoric and its impact.

Because being a historian of late 18th and early 19th century political violence has far more relevance than it should have...

Introducing our weekly review of 2024 election coverage, 'Good News, Bad News.'

With only 200 days left until Election Day we all need to start asking for coverage that uplifts and defends democracy.

Here's how it works

Each week, we’ll compare our pro-democracy election coverage guidelines to recent election coverage to highlight which newsrooms are standing up for democracy and which aren't.
