yesman,

What I want to do will require 2/3 of Congress and 2/3 of the State legislatures.

yesman,

You think that a court that can can step over a constitutional amendment can be tripped up by federal law?

The leftests who seethe at the DNC and Hillary won in 2016, why are they so bitter about their victory?

yesman,

My own impression is that radical Islamism causes wars, rather than the other way around

The irony trap in being anti-religious is that one tends to overestimate the power of faith.

'No Question This Is Dead’: Biden Impeachment Probe Collapses (time.com)

House Republicans reached a critical point this week in their bid to impeach Joe Biden: a closed-door interview with the President’s younger brother James. But the coveted testimony was dramatically overshadowed by another development: The Justice Department indicting one of the impeachment inquiry’s lead informants for...

yesman,

Nobody wants the House to move on Impeachment more than the Biden admin. The Republicans would be fools to put this obvious bullshit in the news-cycle for weeks in an election year. The only witness who doesn’t contradict their narrative is a Russian agent.

Some in the House will push for it anyway. The crazies who don’t have to worry about getting re-elected in their gerrymandered districts, and don’t care about being in the majority. All they care about is re-tweets and bending a knee to the Donald. Impeachment is retribution and retribution is life.

yesman,

Honestly it bugs me that AI generates historical Europeans who are overwhelmingly and astonishingly attractive, by modern standards. The ‘historical accuracy’ crowd doesn’t seem to notice this bias… for some reason.

yesman,

It’s kinda ironic to chastise other leftests for having too much internal conflict.

yesman,

My feeling is that a Trump reelection will be the null result of the American experiment. I expect we’ll shift gears from decline to conflagration that will consume the Constitution, The three Branches, and the Union itself. Best case, we’ll emerge humbled from the ashes much like Germany in the late 20^th^ Century.

yesman,

Lots of good comments about gender hierarchy, but I want to point out one thing.

The entire issue went mainstream when Caitlyn Jenner came out. So in the mainstream, it was framed as MtF. Elliot Page got plenty of attention when he came out. Mainstream culture is celebrity culture.

yesman,

This matter was resolved in the landmark case Grant v. Lee.

yesman,

If Assange hadn’t squatted in that embassy, he’d probably be out by now.

In any case, he lacks credibility as a champion for journalism when he won’t confront the leaders who murder journalists.

yesman,

Raw Story is garbage. Not because it’s partizan, but because it’s lazy.

MAGA freaks out…” is 3 people responding to a fox news tweet identified by their twitter handle, another who’s not even identified that way, and some other rando who doesn’t agree. That’s it, that’s the story.

IDK what kind of sweatshop the reporters working for that outlet are laboring under, but there is nothing in this “article” that couldn’t be hammered out in 10 min on a smartphone.

Just because it’s lefty garbage, doesn’t mean it’s not garbage.

yesman,

IVF results in children being born who otherwise would not have been. These are women who want to be pregnant and give birth. Yet, the pro-life movement is trying to destroy this kind of healthcare.

yesman,

One of the things not addressed in this interview is how the ideology of libertarianism is central to the transition from markets to fiefdoms. All the big tech bros are huge libertarians and that’s not an accident.

And I do think this is a new phenomena unlike classic capitalism. Marx thought that a post-scarcity society would mean more leisure, he didn’t anticipate that that leisure was just another source of value to exploit. Think of reddit selling it’s “content” to an AI company. That content wasn’t produced by coerced labor paid unfairly, it was produced by voluntary labor paid nothing.

Are there any genuine benefits to AI?

I can see some minor benefits - I use it for the odd bit of mundane writing and some of the image creation stuff is interesting, and I knew that a lot of people use it for coding etc - but mostly it seems to be about making more cash for corporations and stuffing the internet with bots and fake content. Am I missing something...

yesman,

I read that one LLM was so good at detecting TB from Xrays that they reverse engineered the “black box” code hoping for some insight doctors could use. Turns out, the AI was biased toward the age of the Xray machine that took each photo because TB is more common in developing countries that have older equipment. Womp Womp.

yesman,

There are few things more satisfying than seeing something on the internet that I’m too young to understand.

yesman,

The funny part is that the stories that follow the “monomyth” the closest are the ones that had authors who studied Campbell.

“Hero with a thousand faces” hasn’t aged nearly as well as Star Wars.

yesman,

They’re still rolling it out. It’s only in preview builds for now, you have to register to basically participate in beta to have it by now, and that’s no guarantee.

yesman,

when the courts operate on the basis of “innocent until proven guilty”.

This is a slogan, a hypothetical that applies to a spherical defendant in a vacuum. In over 90% of all US criminal convictions, the prosecution has no burden of proof.

yesman,

Everyone over 18 then

The IDF has a military detention and trial system for Palestinians as young as 12.
