    PMSL@ FB's Burmese to English translation of Xi Jinping: Mr Shithole. Oops
  2. I figure any incursion on personal liberty should require some pretty strenuous justification. There's way too much overreach when it comes to individuals and their personal business. But on the other hand, I can't see how anything approaching an ideal society can ignore the prime directive of sustainability. Or how justice can exist without a system limiting the power of groups and individuals. Of course, some wackos will tell you that's fucken totalitarianism...

    So now the IMF is concerned about wealth disparity... That's pretty cute, after all those decades of enforcing neoliberal policies. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/jan/17/head-of-imf-says-global-economy-risks-return-of-great-depression As Piketty incontrovertibly demonstrated, since R>G, governments not in the business of at least a minimum degree of downwards wealth redistribution are in the business of upwards wealth redistribution. Anywhere the trickle-down con is still in force, we have active upwards wealth redistribution on top of the uncorrected background vampirism. It's a rent-seeker's paradise all over. Decades of bleeding populaces dry, yet the obvious consequence comes as a surprise to so many... I suppose that's what you get for using a fantasy in place of an attempt to actually model reality.
  4. I'm not sure I follow - why would not using social media preclude anyone from a regular diet of quality journalism (which would ensure at least a passing familiarity with that epic scandal)? I'm inclined to think that folks lapping up the corporate propaganda that passes for journalism in much of the mainstream media are more likely to be unaware of it... That factor might be more relevant

    What a joke

    There's a sort of poetry to it that you tend to only find in fiction. It's wild.

    I wonder which bit of 'this user has you on ignore' is too difficult to process. I guess folks who share Trump's NPD couldn't grok it

    PMSL at these turkeys And Jacob Cutler, another member of the group Arpaio organized to "save our kids," has been charged with domestic violence, according to CBS: And what if the Phoenix-area community doesn't want a poorly vetted group that has included child-sex offenders and violent abusers among its ranks hanging around their kids' schools? Too bad, says Sheriff Joe. "It doesn't matter whether they like it or don't," he told ABC News. "I'm still going to do it. I can't imagine criticism coming when they're given free protection." And, because it's Arpaio, the story just keeps getting weirder. The sheriff hired washed-up action hack Steven Seagal to provide weapons training to his crew. In a press conference on Saturday, Seagal defended his qualifications to a room of baffled reporters: "I've put hundreds of thousands if not millions of hours into my weapons training," adding he would do "anything" to protect Arizona's children. "They are our most precious asset," he said. "They are our treasures and we have to protect them." Reality seems to be ripping off South Park episodes...
