so they do that - they seize all three

usership plummets because…

meanwhile all the folks from fb/twitter/google see the writing on the wall, go out and build three new platforms, and fix the, er, questionable stuff from before.

people flock to them (work with me) because right on their front pages they include a ‘one button’ migration tool (they’ve got the internals to the public trust you morans)

don jr gets his wet dream from the last thread

the only people left on the ‘public trust’ sites are ‘trump supporters’

lawhawk  Aug 30, 2018 • 12:59:39pm

The point of taking on tech companies is that Trump wants to control the flow of info.

He doesn’t want people to see his lies, criminality, and misconduct for what they are.

He wants to limit access and cow critics into submission and silence.

Those who control the info control the universe (riffing on Dune).

What amuses me is he genuinely thinks he will somehow be able to control tech companies that are massive, international, and basically run their own online economy. Like he thought he was going to take on Amazon. Really? Let’s take on Google and Apple too and see how that works out.

The only people that can control these companies are their users, who may simply choose to go somewhere else. The international user base of Google is not going to flinch at a little fly like Trump jumping into the soup to drown himself. He has no idea how the tech world operates.

Let’s see him go after the energy sector next. Oil and gas. They’d eat him alive.

Trump has said twice this month that car companies are moving back to Pennsylvania.

San Francisco high school placed on lockdown after student ‘accidentally fired a gun in the restroom’

forget the ‘accident part’

…after a student got a fucking gun from somewhere / someone, took it to a school, got it into the school, carried it around the school, and was only found out when he negligently, carelessly, lost total control of it and discharged it

if the gun belongs to the student, then hang ‘em. take away his future, his finances, his freedom and his 2a rights. he’s totally irresponsible.

if that gun legally belongs to any other person, hang them
take their future, finances, freedom
IT IS THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE THE SECOND BIGGEST PART OF THE PROBLEM
if they cannot control their weapons at all times (the absolute minimum requirement for any responsible person) they should NOT be anywhere near guns.

the BIGGEST PART OF THE PROBLEM is every other gun owner that doesnt do anyting about these people who literally dont know where their own weapons are.

In any event, the moral of the story is: if poll after poll shows you within the margin of error, GOTV becomes more important than ever. Even the ever-sobering Sarah Kendzior says that overwhelming turnout can be enough to defeat gerrymandering, suppression, etc.

It would be great if O’Rourke won this Senate race and then ran for President in 2020. He kind of reminds me of President Obama in terms of swagger, charisma and empathy. We need someone who can electrify the electorate, get out the vote and overwhelm Republican voter suppression tactics which I expect to be in full force by 2020.

Unfortunately the Bernie Brigade is unrepentant.

Ted liked it in 2016—for a while anyway:

Cruz was telling Anderson Cooper during CNN’s Town Hall event how much he enjoyed Los Angeles’ artist Sabo’s unauthorized image of the Texas-senator-as-gangbanger: Shirtless, defiant and covered in tattoos, a cigarette dangling from his lip…

When the Texas Tribune raised questions in September about the Cruz campaign’s association with Sabo — given the artist’s prolific use of racial epithets, sexual imagery and profane language — Sabo himself seemed puzzled. “I honestly still don’t believe my name is on that site,” he told the political news website. In last week’s interview on CNN, Cruz said the Sabo poster helped his campaign connect with young voters.

Or at best, ignored. Wilders thrives off of attention, and to make himself into a hero for “Western civilization”.

Ideally I would have brought up their outdated “blackface” tradition that they still cling on to, but I don’t want Wilders any more attention to his antics.

Rudy’s “counter-report” is nothing more than an attempt to placate trump. Toss trump a bone to keep him happy and to show that Rudy is really working hard to get trump off the hook.

off a hook he isnt even on yet - he hasnt even been charged with anything

no one in this country, including the president, has an inherent right not to be investigated

Bus accident with multiple fatalities in New Mexico near the Arizona border. Awful.

Some info:

MCKINLEY COUNTY, N.M. —

What happened?

The New Mexico State Police Department says a Greyhound bus and semitrailer collided Thursday afternoon.

Where did this happen?

The crash happened on westbound I-40 near Thoreau. Traffic is being diverted at mile marker 53.

How many people were on board?

Greyhound said a total of 47 passengers were on board during the time of the crash.

Were there any fatalities?

Officials said multiple people were killed in the crash. There are also additional victims who suffered serious injuries and were taken to hospitals.

A spokesperson with the Gallup Indian Medical Center said they received a total of 37 patients.

The spokesperson said up to six of those patients were transferred to other hospitals that are trained in trauma care, including a baby.

Other hospitals in the area haven’t released information.

What caused the crash?

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.

Where was the bus traveling?

It would be great if O’Rourke won this Senate race and then ran for President in 2020. He kind of reminds me of President Obama in terms of swagger, charisma and empathy. We need someone who can electrify the electorate, get out the vote and overwhelm Republican voter suppression tactics which I expect to be in full force by 2020.

The following book came up as recommended reading (while looking at denier take-down comments); I have no idea if the book will be good or bad, but it seems to be an important subject:

Exterminate All the Brutes

In a chilling and controversial book, Swedish author Sven Lindqvist recounts the grisly history of nineteenth-century European imperialism and its connection to a legacy of genocide. Moving through present-day Africa while tracing the routes of British conquerors, Lindqvist tells how armed troops massacred 11,000 Sudanese (at a ‘cost’ of only forty-eight British deaths) in 1898 and how the King of Ashanti was made to kiss the feet of British officers in 1896. Lindqvist doesn’t stop in Africa, writing of the extermination of the Tasmanian aborigines and other atrocities inflicted on native people. He then connects those acts with those of the Nazi regime, showing how rampant imperialism sowed the seeds of the Holocaust. This is a moving account of the forces of history.

Do I really have to check? Gotta be a lie, and how do you even measure something like that?

This has been bugging me. The guy running against Ted Cruz, do you pronounce his first name Bee-toe or Bay-toe? I’ve been using the latter.

You got it right.

I’m all about second chances, and people can change. But I’m really suspicious about a few of the never-Trump right wingers. Joe Walsh is one.

The enemy of my enemy can still be a complete fucking asshole I want nothing to do with.

re: #291 Charles Johnson

There is no unique metric. If you go by GDP, every non-recession year is the best in history until the economy grows a couple percent the following year. You could argue that seven of President Obama’s eight years featured the best economy in history by that standard.

Hello all. Figured I drop by and say hello. Lurking more, saying less, but I was In Philly today with my girl moving some of her things into an apartment in Mantua.
She’s entering graduate school and I could not be prouder of her.
And this weekend they are having the Made In America gigantic concert on the Parkway in front of the Art Museum.
Hoo, boy.
It was starting to build, and the traffic was bonkers.
So we unloaded some things and went to my first Mega Ikea store.
HUGE.
And not only that, it was so big they had an Ocean Liner parked nearby at Pier 82.
SS United States

It is moored there and looks like this.

SS United States 8-30-2018

Closer view of SS United States

Not in the best of shape…

Going back down Monday to finish up. Party should be over by then.
Maybe.
Have a great Labor Day weekend.

Trump just loves his rallies. Wonder if he’ll pay for private rallies after he’s out of office.

He’s bragging that there are thousands of people outside the arena that didn’t get in. That’s always a big lie.

I would suggest you take some time off (hours even) no phone, computer etc. We need you to stay sane. I did it a few weeks ago, it was nice. We are running a marathon, not a sprint.

That SS United States must be some kind of griftomatic. Somebody keeps raising just enough money to pay for the dock and pretending to try to restore it. If you got a close up view you would realize just how preposterous the notion of rehabbing it into some sort of hotel/casino would be.

Perhaps take a short mental health break and let someone you trust moderate and run LGF while you’re away. Because Trump does something idiotic every other minute, you probably wouldn’t want to be away that long though. Sigh.

“Unscrupulous golfing” was well known. No point in trying to buy that info back.

I was looking for an article that appeared in, I think Golf Digest, about a round to review a Trump course and Trump took multiple yard-long gimme putts and mover mulligans that allowed. The author said that he didn’t want to write about that stuff, but instead focus on the course, which was very good. But Trump got mad when he heard that the score he claimed for himself wasn’t going to be in the article.

Anyway, it’s now pretty clear that Trump was never upset about Obama playing golf—and it’s possible that he didn’t resent a black man playing golf as president, though I’d assume that was part of it—it’s that he thought he would be the bestest, greatestest, golf-playing president ever if he could get elected. And with his game, just like the election, the only way to do it was to cheat. And his particular psychology told him that cheating is not cheating because you already believe you’r the best. Be Best.

I like to think they’re finger-to-the-wind types, hoping they’re in time to blend in with the crowd when it turns our way.
