I am very worried about who they are planning on hiring as "Poll Watchers".

SoupBrick ,

This is actually most likely the case. His fanbase typically does not have the highest cunning when it comes to commiting crimes. That, coupled with the Republicans planning hate crimes and the such, probably encourages requiring agencys get warrants before accessing the metric shit ton of data that brokers sell. It would make it harder to gather evidence if another insurrection occured.

SoupBrick ,

Yeh, but then the govt can throw the cost burden on the average citizen instead of constructing and maintaining public transportation. The less money they put towards infrastructure, the more they can use for... allegedly, other things.

SoupBrick ,

Yeh, but then the Oligarchy can get the public off it's back, regardless of the effectiveness. I am sure in a few years when things keep getting worse, they will come up with another "solution" which does not address the root cause.

SoupBrick ,

Give the moderator a mute button and I would watch it. It would be neat if they live captioned the bs trump was yelling about while muted.

SoupBrick ,

The US govt needs to get its shit together and deal with these major quality of life issues. The longer there is no response to massive protests the bigger, and likely, more violent these demonstrations will get. Who this violence will be caused by remains to be seen, but the larger the group of people gets, the easier it is to manipulate with panic/chaos.

Learn something new every day, I guess. Thank you for clarifying that!

Getin' real,

"I was then presented evidence on why late stage Capitalism was directly contributing to the ongoing mental health crisis. Sadly, my hand slipped and pulled the pin on the flash grenade I just pulled out of my bag. Needless to say, the reasoning is still unclear as to why this crisis is occurring."

You'd think the party of Breeding wouldn't go after a bill that would encourage the creation of more workers, but I guess Communism is more scary than losing profits.

We all hate the patriarchy, but chill with the racism.

Bro forgot the /s.

People not watching this is understandable, they probably don't want to drive any traffic to a video with an obviously bogus claim.

SoupBrick ,

The people with the power to enact strong, rapid change will be dead when the worst of it hits. So, why the fuck should they care. They got theirs. It is pretty damn disgusting, the lack of empathy, but there is no short term gain from them acting selflessly.

SoupBrick ,

When someone's existence is based on "faith" (faith that trump is good, faith that the bible was indirectly written by god, faith that jesus was white) logic has no place in their worldview.

SoupBrick ,

Naw, this image has been circulating for a while. Still a good pic tho!

SoupBrick ,

When news sources start saying shit like, "The economy is great, you kids just need to stop buying stuff and save for a house!" "The war in Gaza.." (seems pretty damn one sided to be a war.) "Biden is trying his best to protect women's rights!" (We can tell by the lack of action on the various tracking and criminalization of women's choices in deep red states) People start looking elsewhere for news that reflects the world we live in vs the obvious propaganda we are seeing from major news sources.

SoupBrick ,

E-readers are too convenient, especially with how quickly I go through books.

SoupBrick ,

True conservatives will embrace the Amish lifestyle and get the fuck off the internet.

SoupBrick ,

How about using their shitty opsec to find where they plan to attack and actually defend the property instead of letting the traitors walk right in.

SoupBrick ,

So they are going to put in place some hard data collection and selling regulation, right? Right?

SoupBrick , (edited )

What are your sources saying the reasoning for the bill is?

Which forces Tiktok to sell or be banned, correct? The issue I see is: why not just create regulation for the root problems instead of just focusing on that app? The only reason I can see, is that their priorities do not lay with protecting people, but forcing a foreign business to sell it's IP to strictly American companies. Wether that decision has to do with the intentional or unintentional promotion of the US's direct involvement in the genocide in Gaza or just Big social media companies lobbying for the removal of a competitor, we can only speculate. Both sides are doing their best to push this bill, when have the (R)s collectively banded together to create positive change? The point being, reading the bill is cool and all, but you do have to ask, "Why target a specific company instead of the alleged problems of foreign adversaries getting their hands on our data?" If we had hard data collection and selling regulations, it would not only allow them to ban predatory apps (foreign or domestic) but also ensure sensitive data cannot even reach our enemy's hands.

SoupBrick ,

He is the most intelligent business man on the face of the earth, right?

SoupBrick ,

Imagine having enough money to be that dumb.

SoupBrick ,

My bet: They're probably going to initially go after some actual problem accounts, then once they got the PR out, immediately start using it for bad faith surveillance.

SoupBrick ,

Hmm, looks like all the EPA and FDA got in their budget is enough money to close their eyes and hope for the best.

SoupBrick ,

Imagine taking hostile action against people who have little to nothing left.

SoupBrick ,

I feel like the root of this problem is greed. The only ones who can curb unsafe practices with regulation is elected officials. You know why they don't? Lobbying done by the greedy railroad corpos. A small expense for a larger profit.

U.S. floods arms into Israel despite mounting alarm over war’s conduct ( www.washingtonpost.com )

The United States has quietly approved and delivered more than 100 separate foreign military sales to Israel since the Gaza war began Oct. 7, amounting to thousands of precision-guided munitions, small diameter bombs, bunker busters, small arms and other lethal aid, U.S. officials told members of Congress in a recent classified...

SoupBrick ,

He knows he is very likey to win this next election. Which is why he is ok with funding this genocide. Cause for us it is either elect Genocide or Genocide+. We just gotta keep playing this dumbass political game and hoping for a better future.

SoupBrick ,

But, but, but all the news stations are saying the economy is the best it's ever been! That means there is no economic hardship right now, right? Right?

SoupBrick ,

Lol, watch nations suddenly acknowledge climate change and jump into action when coffee prices skyrocket.

SoupBrick ,

Looks like the prison system is taking their overpopulation problems into their own hands.

SoupBrick ,

Agreed. But that would decrease the profit and govt funding, so not really a viable option for them. Remember, human life is only there to profit off of.

SoupBrick ,

God, I hate this timeline. Why couldn't we get the cool dystopian one.

SoupBrick ,

I feel like this 100% should have been upheld. The reason being that trump engaged in an insurrection, which, according to the 14th amendment, means he cannot run for public office. We have laws for a reason, right? republicans can try to kick (D)s off the ballot, but I would hope they have a damn good reason for it. If not, that is when our court system is supposed to step in.

SoupBrick ,

Well that's even worse!

SoupBrick ,

Actions speak louder than words. Not saying what he did is admirable, but he obviously believed in the statement he was making. Which, to my understanding was standing up against the US government contributing to a genocide.

SoupBrick ,

Wait, are you trying to tell me Fox News isn't a fox observation channel?

Tumblr and Wordpress to Sell Users’ Data to Train AI Tools ( www.404media.co )

this could not be timed worse for Tumblr which is in huge hot water with its userbase already for its CEO breaking his sabbatical to ban a prominent trans user for allegedly threatening him (in a cartoonish manner), and then spending a week personally justifying it increasingly wildly across several platforms. the rumors had...

SoupBrick ,

I mean, I'll take that as a good point in Tumblr's favor.

SoupBrick ,

Ah, gotcha. Thanks for the extra info!
