Bio--the discipline, that is.
Exactly like on the toilet…and cupping his private parts.
Don’t we all need a break. We’ll all hope for something to come out with the current investigations and law suits!
Nonetheless, as a result, his is the tone-setter for the thread, and as former federal employees, I think we should object to that tone.
Michael is not making fun of the opioid crisis, he is pointing out the total inadequacy of Trump’s comprehension of it and the worse than inappropriate ideas he has for dealing with it. As a Trumpista, I guess that whooshed by you without stopping?
Facebook was negligent, but CA was close to (or maybe right on) criminal.
Were you a victim of Cambridge Analytica’s dirty tricks? The fact you don’t know is the problem.
Political persuasion that used to take place in the open, in Congress or on the hustings. Now it is covert. The average person opening his Facebook feed on a smartphone does not know he has been “targeted” as a person who might read about a sting operation involving Ukrainian girls. He may not know that his data inclines to the right, which is why he saw a lot of articles in 2016 about the terrible threat of immigrant crime – or that his data shows sympathies with the left, which is why he kept reading stories denouncing Hillary Clinton as a sellout not worth voting for.
Covert political advertising makes a mockery of election laws in every country that has them. As Turnbull put it so eloquently, the new practitioners of propaganda don’t want their old-fashioned smear campaigns to look like “propaganda,” because if it did, you might ask, “Who’s put that out?” But “Who’s put that out?” is exactly what voters have the right to know. If the Internet platforms won’t conform to that minimal standard on their own, it’s time to regulate them.
Just an excuse to slime Brennan because of his rake-down of Trump a day or so ago. Gus Hall spoke at my college once, and the townspeople went bananas. I have to admit we students got some chuckles from it and were ready with flowers for the protesting townies. They didn’t seem to find that as amusing as we did, but then we were students…
More like insecure individuals who are into authoritarian control than fascist per se. Check out “Escape from Freedom”, Erich Fromm (I was put on it by Canuck some time ago).
Would you call it moody? Or just irregular? You know, bouncing from constipation to diarrhea and back.
Definitely by November, I hope!
Ted is a bit ahead of the game. She hasn’t been confirmed and may not be if Sens. Paul and Graham stand firm.
