…more than 400 far-right authors under the guidance of the Heritage Foundation have put together a 920-page blueprint for a Trump dictatorship known as #Project2025, that if elected, his acolytes will use to ride roughshod over the Constitution and create a far-right state.

The plan is to dismantle every federal agency, replacing knowledgeable and dedicated public servants with hard-core Trump loyalists to carry out a radical agenda and create an imperial Presidency bound by no law, seeking retribution against Trump’s “enemies” in the government, the free press, and the public at large. And they are already starting to recruit.

Elon Musk plans to charge new X users to enable posting - but ironically introduces AI to help users write posts. So… try to reduce bots but promote AI generated content? Do I have that right? #X #Xwitter #Twitter https://techcrunch.com/2024/04/15/elon-musk-plans-to-charge-new-x-users-to-enable-posting/

Hospitals that make profits should pay taxes. That, or demonstrate they deserve non-profit tax exempt status. “Many nonprofit hospital systems across the country are failing to provide low-income Americans with the affordable medical care required by their nonprofit status — despite receiving billions in tax benefits and providing exorbitant compensation packages to their senior executives,” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

So… a widening war in the as Iran retaliates for the Israeli attack on its consulate in Syria that killed sr. generals. From Iran’s POV, there was no choice. The attack on its diplomatic mission was/is considered an attack on its sovereign territory, a red line for any country. It had to respond. But the response, so far, has been measured & interesting. So far. launched drones, which were immediately detected giving Israel a few hours to prepare and activate their considerable air defenses. Iran claimed publicly that they also launched ballistic missiles, but Israel has denied that an there is no evidence yet that missiles are involved. A couple of possibilities come to mind. One, fearing a direct war with nuclear armed , Iran has purposely muted its response guaranteeing little or no Israeli damage but giving the Mullahs chance to claim revenge; and two, this response is a feint and we’ll see some unexpected asymmetric response at some undetermined point. I hope it is the former.
