Yes, they all line up to fellate the orange con man.

Slurp, slurp.

They want that dumbphuck ronnie raygun on currency and Mount Rushmore, they are just that stupid. And of course, the "liberal media" has piled on with huge amounts of help in this stupid narrative about how popular ronnie raygun was.

No wonder they are trying to do the same for the even stupider, even more divisive and even more awful dimbulb donnie.

You don't really want to see that question answered in the form of their implementation.

The irony is that they are all Abrahamic and even worship the same god (Allah/Yahweh/Jehovah - all the same).

By not doing healthcare and attacking trans, Marge gets to punch down on TWO groups, so it's a win.

Exactly. Pope Alito don't GAF about things like optics or morality or even any kind of internal consistency.

The rules?! Applied to a rich right wing cishet allegedly xtian man like donnie? Outrageous!

That's not the "law and order" we were talking about!

Go back and re-read the quote a little closer. :)

I remember them hyperventilating over CFLs (mostly because Gore backed them, if we are going to be honest). Now that those are to be phased out, I wouldn't be surprised if they now hyperventilate over THAT.

Also:

How the court let that language on the ballot, I will never understand. You read the language, it does not do justice.

Yeah, IMAGINE, allowing people to decide, for themselves, if they want actual freedom. I mean, there is just no justice any more.

Leary said: “LSD is a psychedelic drug which occasionally causes psychotic behavior in people who have NOT taken it.”

I think this applies just as much to something like the Devil's lettuce.

I wonder about them for two key reasons:

  1. Why won't they provide an end to end encryption?
  2. Why won't they give an option to keep that little bubble green?

Seems awfully sus and anti-worker, if you ask me. Most other clients tend to have these as options and have even before Slack crept into the picture.

I'd love to find and watch some gems I've missed. Can others suggest movie(s) they think others have likely not seen, but really should, starting from ~2010 up until today?

Obviously movies like Get Out are not in the "deep cut" category.

I'm not that keen on giving away my data, so it's less about saving a buck, and more about not releasing info about me and what companies I'm reading about.

A lot of these people are boomers. Rushkoff is much younger and I think Gen X. Where are the Gen Y/Z versions? Are there more Gen Xers to check out?

Anyway, who are the next batch of these type of people? Are there websites/forums that follow them?

(This is another in a series of my "High Weirdness" kind of questions. )

I asked a related question here - the one about Boing Boing, Disinfo.com, Dangerous Minds: https://lemmy.world/post/1001839

I'd say somewhere around the late 00's, things like iPhone, FB, Twitter, etc...started to make the web a lot more....homogenized.

It was fine for the old hands - we've seen this kind of thing before and more corporate rule was all too expected. We've been through a few migrations and paradigm shifts already. But we could still use our skills, go to the sites we wanted, curate RSS feeds, find the weird bits of the 'net that were still worthwhile tuning into and keeping the polished stuff at arms length.

But then things like StumbleUpon went away and for more and more people totally new to technology (but born into it) they think social media == "the internet" (Which is a depressing notion, having your entire idea of "technology" being something like BigCompany's tablet/phone connected to BigCompany's data gathering site to mediate your entire online experience.) Blogging became "uncool". And of course, very few people, most especially younger people, seem to know about things like RSS.

I used to use StumbleUpon and then it dried up; has anyone used Mix? Or is there something better to use for discovering the weird and the wonderful?

How do you find the weird corners of the net these days? Where have all "The Others" gone to?
