Huh. Fascism is on the rise everywhere. The planet is being destroyed by greedy billionaires. People are struggling to pay for food. There are wars and genocides. But he thinks the ugliest danger is “gender ideology”, whatever that is.

And he says it erases differences. If “gender ideology” is being a non-bigot about gender, then that respects differences. What erases differences is forcing everyone to conform to only two set gender stereotypes.

It’s saddening that dogma prevents him seeing how dramatically advances in understanding and respect for gender have improved so many people’s lives. And it’s disappointing to see him align himself and his church with forces of oppression.

Now punish the corporations proportionately for the damage and destruction they have caused.

HP wants you to pay up to $36/month to rent a printer that it monitors (arstechnica.com)

HP launched a subscription service today that rents people a printer, allots them a specific amount of printed pages, and sends them ink for a monthly fee. HP is framing its service as a way to simplify printing for families and small businesses, but the deal also comes with monitoring and a years-long commitment....

Maybe they’ll be kind enough to offer an ad-free subscription that doesn’t waste ink and paper for just $10 more per month.*

*Ink credits expire at the end of each month and cannot be rolled over. Use of ink exceeding the monthly plan will be billed at premium rates. Using the printer means you agree to the current week’s privacy policy, a copy of which will be printed on request at the customer’s cost. Privacy policy printing credits are not included in the monthly plan. All materials printed via the printer, and all derived works, remain the intellectual property of HP Inc. Users of the printer, and their descendants, are the property of HP Inc. Bypassing print limit restrictions will be punishable as terrorism. Other terms and conditions may apply. This deal is subject to change; pray we do not change it further.

It doesn’t sound like a particularly bad breach but they didn’t disclose it very quickly, which never works in a company’s favor. I use Nord VPN still. I tried Mullvad for a while and it was good, but I found Nord did a better job at getting around geoblocks, and was cheaper. I use Mullvad’s browser with it though.

Proof would be something, because their word is not trustworthy at all. And the onus of proof is on the IDF. They’ve killed more than 30,000 people in 4 months. They’ve destroyed half of the homes in Gaza and destroyed the hospitals. They’re keeping the people under siege, starving them of food and water and depriving them of medical care. Are we supposed to believe the IDF is being careful and conscientious? The evidence is before the world’s eyes, despite the IDF killing a good number of the journalists reporting on it. It would be quite in keeping with all this for the IDF to have killed the people in this news story as well. And even if there was a stampede, was it caused by the IDF opening fire? If so, they still killed these people.

Israeli troops ‘fire on people waiting for aid’ as Gaza death tolls hits 30,000 (www.msn.com)

Kamel Abu Nahel, who was being treated for a gunshot wound at Shifa Hospital, said he and others went to the distribution point in the middle of the night because they heard there would be a delivery of food. “We’ve been eating animal feed for two months,” he added....

ExxonMobil is suing investors who want faster climate action

But sure, the lack of climate action is the public’s fault and Exxon would love to help but has its hands tied.

I have talked with friends about beef. On the one hand, the beef industry is a terribly cruel process producing a relatively expensive food that’s significantly contributing to climate change and destruction of forests. By eating less of it you’d save money, reduce animal and human suffering and protect the planet. On the other hand, it’s tasty. Many people will listen to the problems and even acknowledge them, but changing their eating habits is another matter.

“… and also fuck my own children and their descendants.”

That’s the bit that puzzles me, but I guess the answer is either

  1. they mistakenly think climate change will spare their rich descendants, or
  2. they’re so pathologically selfish they can’t muster up any real concern for their own children and grandchildren.
floofloof,

They don’t really believe they’re shooting at Hamas. They believe they’re shooting at subhuman animals. This is the genocidal mindset.

The IDF says Palestinians were hurt by “pushing and trampling”

How irresponsible of the starving Palestinians not to file out in an orderly manner while being shot.

floofloof,

Israel is responsible for making these people desperate enough that they get trampled in a rush for scarce food. Israel also admits it opened fire on a crowd of hungry civilians. Nothing about this makes the IDF look anything other than very bad.

Privatize the profits; socialize the losses. Good old capitalism.

Good mini PC for around 100€

My current setup consists of a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4gb RAM and a 1tb external SSD. I’m thinking of getting a used mini PC for around 100€ to replace that tho because it would give me a lot more power and especially RAM (I currently need to use an 8gb swap file). My plan so far is to get a used mini PC that’s quiet, has a...

The N100 has a reputation for decent performance and good power efficiency at a cheap price. It’s a basic quad core CPU with only efficiency cores (no performance cores) and no hyperthreading, but it comes with modern codec capabilities. It will certainly give you more power than a Raspberry Pi for everyday tasks, but don’t expect to do anything too demanding with it. If your needs are basic an N100 mini PC seems like a good option.

Many things are cheaper in the USA than in Europe or Canada. The downside is the USA’s poor healthcare, public services, workers’ rights and justice system, and (probably) having to live under proper fascism soon.

floofloof,

I cannot believe our government would sit idly by and let this cockamamie scheme just unfold and go, “Damn, I guess it’s technically legal.”

That sounds like exactly the kind of thing the Democrats love to do.

floofloof,

Oh no, not irreparable injury to a completely useless and environmentally damaging industry! Better keep causing irreparable damage to the planet instead then.

floofloof,

Better keep voting for governments who are determined to make it worse then. Why do so many Canadians want better public services yet vote Conservative? There seems to be a disconnect.

floofloof,

Woodfin was reacting to the state Senate’s approval this week of a bill that would also bar public schools from affirming “a divisive concept,” such as teaching that “slavery and racism are aligned with the founding principles of the United States” and that “fault, blame, or bias should be assigned to members of a race, color, religion, sex, ethnicity, or national origin, on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, ethnicity, or national origin.”

White supremacism has been a guiding principle of US government since its founding. These thin-skinned Republicans just can’t bear to be told their heritage isn’t perfect. Ironically, this is typical of white supremacists.
