Breitbart was among the first to figure out that just floating a story out on the Internet long enough would result in it getting picked up my mainstream outlets and being treated as if it had some actual merit.

And this has gone on to become the dominant political art form of the 21st century…

If NPR had a modicum of ethics, instead of doing ‘the right thing’ by saying ‘we acknowledge that Facebook is one of our financial contributors’ when covering news of it, they would do the RIGHT thing and say, ‘Facebook is NO LONGER one of our contributors’.

Severe storms threaten Mid-Atlantic on Monday after Sunday’s tornado swarm in Missouri

More than a dozen tornadoes were reported in Missouri and Illinois on Sunday as severe storms swept across the Midwest. Southeastern Missouri was hit particularly hard as multiple strong twisters struck after dark, causing major damage. Despite the damage, there have been no reports of serious injuries or fatalities.

On Monday, the same storm system was barreling toward the Ohio Valley, and is set to spawn a new round of severe weather from the central Appalachians to the Mid-Atlantic, including Asheville, Raleigh, Roanoke, Richmond and Washington.

The storm originated from the Pacific Ocean and produced heavy rain in the Pacific Northwest and Northern California late last week before ejecting east of the continental divide over the weekend. It spawned a zone of low pressure over the central states drawing in warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico. The system also tapped into strong high-altitude winds, intensifying the storms and helping several rotate.

and finally the portioning into vac seal bags.

We are in S Illinois and had a hell of a storm come through last night. Window rattling thunder boomers, 2” plus of rain. I’m hearing of a tornado 20 miles north of us that flattened some farm buildings, no injuries. Power never went out here.

Facebook’s senior executives interfered to allow US politicians and celebrities to post whatever they wanted on its social network despite pleas from employees to stop, leaked internal documents suggest,” the Financial Times reports.

“Employees claim in the documents that while Facebook has long insisted that it is politically neutral, it allowed rightwing figures to break rules designed to curb misinformation and harmful content, after being stung by accusations of bias from conservatives.”

Part of the solution is building an internet that doesn’t rely on shitposting to generate clicks to generate money. Instead, it is designed to boost trust & reliability; much like how newspapers/TV used to filter out the screeching loonies, rather than give them prime space

Not sure who Max Blumenthal is (ideology-wise), but I get the distinct echo of trollery here, in him citing Noam Chomsky: Chomsky is one of those archetypal RW boogeymen: hardly any of them can seriously articulate anything he’s written or pronounced, but they know that he’s an infamous radical and left-wing icon, so therefore useful mainly/only as a foil for formalized Outrage.

That said, I agree with Chomsky - public health (especially in a pandemic) ought not to be victimized by abstract BS about “freedom”. Viruses don’t know or care.

I find aerial archaeology absolutely fascinating. I’m always blown away when Time Team, for instance, finds an old Roman villa that’s under 3 or 4 feet of dirt. How is it, I think, that in the space of 1500 years, the floor of that villa wound up under 4 feet of dirt? it just goes to show the inevitable long passage of time, where the walls fall down, or get leached by other builders elsewhere, and the floor gets covered by dirt because England has mostly been an agricultural country (well, hell, almost every country has mostly been an agricultural country), and I imagine every time some farmer and his plow work an adjoining field, loose soil would get kicked up by the wind and another fine layer of silt would contribute to covering over the mosaic floors, or the foundation stone.

“…The problem is that the constant coverage allows anti-vaxxers a platform to spread more misinformation, as they relay their unsupported reasons for refusing to get inoculated. From the Journal’s nurse article: “Some believe the vaccine’s development was too rushed and are worried about the possible unknown long-term effects on their health.” One nurse insisted, “The government shouldn’t be telling us what to do.”

The Journal made no mention that the government for nearly a century has “told us” to follow speed limits and to vaccinate our children for mumps and measles if they want to attend public school. Yet today’s newfound anti-government radicals never objected.

Some reporting includes caveats that none of the anti-vax rationales are supported by science. (For example, getting vaccinated has no impact on the ability of women to get pregnant.) But more often than not the relentless attention presents the job-quitters as common-sense, thoughtful people.”

There are places, like Sweden, where you, if you have a communicable disease which ticks all the boxes (mandatory testing on suspicion, mandatory contact tracing, danger to society, danger to public, and, of course, notifiable), you can get forced into care if you as an infected person behave in a way which seriously endangers others. Sort of like 5150, but for physical diseases.

A Muslim Arab American high school student was left “in shock” after a teacher responded to his question about math homework using the term “terrorists.” According to WABC, the teacher from Ridgefield Memorial High School in Bergen County, New Jersey, made the insensitive comment following a question from Mohammed Zubi, a senior student, regarding his math work. Zubi had asked his teacher if he could finish an assignment at home on Tuesday.

“He responded saying, ‘We don’t negotiate with terrorists,’” Zubi told WABC. “So I look around in shock, there’s people laughing, and there’s other people in shock, and I turn around and ask my friend, ‘Did he really just say that?’ and she said yes.”

One of the big issues with Typhoid Mary was that she continued to work as a cook. As soon as she was busted, she went somewhere else and got a job as a cook.The fact that she infected at least 53 people and killed at least 3. might also have had something to do with her being quarantined.

Mary Mallon (September 23, 1869 - November 11, 1938), also known as Typhoid Mary, was an Irish-born cook believed to have infected 53 people with typhoid fever, three of whom died, and the first person in the United States identified as an asymptomatic carrier of the disease pathogen, Salmonella typhi.Because she persisted in working as a cook, by which she exposed others to the disease, she was twice forcibly quarantined by authorities, eventually for the final two decades of her life. Mallon died after a total of nearly 30 years in isolation.

I have no idea of the ideological context of this confrontation.

What I see in this video is that enough members of the congregation went after him to intimidate him from trying to be physically violent. I seems to me that the pile-on reduced the fighting and possible injury.

The age and maturity of the congregation members who responded also probably reduced the amount of injury the dude in blue had. Although I would guess that he took a few well deserved hits.

My last thought is that the dude in blue, being larger and in better shape than most of the congregation seems to have thought that he could intimidate everybody. And he backed down when he realized that they were not going to allow him to bully them.

According to the podcast, he is an absolutely terrible person. I never watched Person of Interest but the podcast mentioned an African American actress with whom he was supposed to have an affair during one season, but he strenuously objected because he believed that people who were white should not be involved in relationships with those who were black. So her role was substantially diminished.

I did wonder if he had some serious disability or brain damage because it made it clear that he could not memorize any lines at all and that he had to read from a script for all his scenes.

I had always liked him as an actor but am totally done with him now.

Mark Zuckerberg reportedly helped reinstate a video that falsely claims abortion is ‘never medically necessary,’ caving to complaints of Republican politicians
——

Among The Facebook Papers is an internal memo that alleges Zuckerberg was directly involved in a 2019 decision to reinstate a video that falsely claimed abortions are “never medically necessary,” according to documents reviewed by the FT.

The inaccurate post was originally removed by a Facebook moderator, leading to backlash from Republican figureheads, the report says.

Facebook’s decision to put the post back up was one of several examples cited by employees who claim executives intervene in misinformation removal “when they see that they could harm powerful political actors,” according to The Financial Times.

I’m guessing they thought he wanted nothing to do with them because he was gay and they had abused him over it.

When the discovery of more than two dozen bodies stashed under John Wayne Gacy’s house near Chicago was making headlines all over the world in the late 1970s, Francis Wayne Alexander’s family in North Carolina didn’t think much of it. The way they saw it, Alexander had cut off communication with them because he wanted to be left alone.

Then came news this month that for more than 40 years, the man they knew as Wayne was known as Victim #5 in the city where he had gone to start a new life. They were told that DNA tests on the remains of one of the half-dozen unidentified victims of the notorious serial killer were Alexander’s.

“They just loved him, but they thought that he wanted nothing more to do with them, so that’s why there was never a missing person’s report,” Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart said at a news conference Monday announcing the latest victim identification.

I should be able to laugh off the fact that a lawsuit filled more than a year after an election is sad. Would be hilarious if these people didn’t have guns and an urge to burn it all down. Fuck Lidell and Fuck Bannon. Jail is too good, but I will settle for it.

I think that come this Thanksgivings families can put aside their differences and in a show of unity matter, come together and laugh at Mike Pillow.

Ran across an odd gun today on the Henry website: Henry Garden Gun .22 LR smoothbore.
This is a specialized gun for the little .22 shotshells, aka “rat shot,” that can be fired occasionally from almost any .22LR rifle or pistol. As they point out in the blurb, firing shot through a rifled barrel will eventually erode the rifling though. The Garden Gun is essentially the same as the well-known Henry lever-action .22, but without the rifling. I think it could also fire normal .22 ammunition but accuracy, and possibly muzzle velocity, would be terrible. Like all Henry guns, it is a little on the pricey side ($436 MSRP). It’s interesting though and I’m sure there is someone somewhere who would have real use for it.

This is exactly who they are and what they want.

I lost my family and friends to this bullshit and I am about ready to punch a motherfucker over this kind of shit. They are doing it on purpose and they will not stop until they are stopped. This isn’t normal shit and it won’t go away by being nice. They aren’t going to have some revelation where they realize how fucked in the head they are. They like this, they want us to hate and fight and even kill each other.

This is from an email from the ACLU:

This new policy imposes strict requirements on adult content websites that use Mastercard’s credit card or payment options - including pre-approval of all content before publication. The stated intent of this is to prevent child sexual abuse material and other non-consensual content. But the policy only applies to websites that host adult content - despite all available evidence indicating these problems proliferate across the web.

So in reality, all Mastercard’s policy really does is threaten sex workers’ access to the financial services and online platforms that they depend on for safety and livelihood - making them even more vulnerable, especially those who are trans women of color.

As Daily Kos covered at the time, Rachel Levine, an openly trans woman, made history when she became the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services assistant secretary earlier this year. Levine has a long, impressive work history, including serving as the Pennsylvania health secretary during the COVID-19 pandemic. She recently became the first female four-star officer with the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps when she was sworn in as an admiral. And of course, Republicans couldn’t handle it.

One example? Republican Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana unleased a nasty, transphobic tweet saying the “title of first female four-star officer gets taken by a man.” This is transphobic because Levine is a woman regardless of how she was assigned at birth. It also matches the recent Republican obsession that trans folks are “taking” things from cis girls and women (like sports scholarships). In a pleasant turn of events, Twitter has locked Banks’ account over the tweet, as reported by The Washington Post.

A federal judge has dealt conservative figure James O’Keefe a legal blow, ruling that his group’s undercover operations against a Democratic consulting firm can fairly be described at an upcoming million-dollar trial as “political spying.”

Making matters worse for the right-wing star, the judge cited O’Keefe’s own book as evidence against him.

CNN: “President Biden has spent a significant amount of time away from the White House, particularly on weekends, since his January inauguration. Including last weekend’s trip to Delaware, Biden has taken 35 personal trips and spent all or part of 108 of his first 276 days in office at one of his Delaware homes or at Camp David in Maryland. That includes partial days, like Friday — when he spent the day at the White House and departed in the evening.

Best rando:

Nearly every day the Washington Press Corps
report that President Biden is meeting with
legislators, medical experts, economic analysts — and not a single Nazi rat bastard traitor amongst them.

On Stephen Baldwin: not fair to portray someone willing to appear on camera with a gun as anti gun. Holding a gun has responsibility even if it’s a prop and the holder has an affirmative duty to treat it as loaded unless both ammunition loading system and chamber explicitly checked. Holding a loaded gun do not put finger on trigger until ready to fire at designated target with an understanding of what’s behind the target. Screw him

re: #197 gocart mozart

Douthat had a very powerful column about his nightmare descent into chronic illness, in his case Lyme disease. It is quite clear that, like all conservatives, he would have been dismissive of these ailments if one had not struck him; they have difficulty empathizing with someone who has problems they themselves have not experienced. Now of course, it is not just fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and Lyme disease, but also Covid-19 long-haulers. And the suffering may be lifelong. I seldom have any respect for Douthat, but in this case, he deserves our sympathy.
