Robots are taking over farms faster than anyone saw coming, as the first fully autonomous farm equipment is becoming commercially available, meaning machines will be able to completely take over a multitude of tasks.

So tell me why we need migrants again?

RIO DE JANEIRO - Danilo Gentili is one of Brazil's most popular - and most offensive - comedians, with a late-night talk show and a massive Twitter following. A typical Gentili joke might speculate about this man's sexual orientation or deride that woman's weight. But a burst of tweets against a congresswoman - at one point, he implied she was a prostitute - proved too vulgar for Brazil's legislators, and in 2017, he was ordered to delete the offensive tweets. So, in characteristic response, he tore the order into pieces and rubbed them on his genitals in a video that went viral. In the view of the Brazilian judiciary, Gentili had gone too far, and this month a court ordered him jailed for six months. The judge found that Gentili's action was "intended to offend" and "never to be confused with a simple piece of spontaneous humor." Gentili has cast himself as a martyr to political correctness: "I never imagined one day being sentenced to prison for protesting against censorship," he tweeted. He is appealing, and legal analysts say he's unlikely to see the inside of a cell. But the line between offensive and criminally offensive has become a central issue in Brazil today, as the nation's institutions - including its new president - test the boundaries of the freedom of expression. Brazilian law, which is largely modeled on the U.S. system, includes in its constitution echoes of the First Amendment's guarantee of freedom of expression. But a criminal provision that allows penalties for those who "disrespect" public officials opens a loophole for censorship. That loophole, combined with a culture of high-level rule-dodging, has yielded several recent incidents that have provoked the concern of Brazilians and international observers alike - and created strange bedfellows in support of free speech: Gentili's defenders...

Glad to see people with huge balls fighting for free speech.

So surprising. (Not) This is why they're pushing to deplatform their competitors (same as Vox). They're getting their butts kicked.

Trump won Ohio in 2016, and with his personal intervention aimed at returning auto industry jobs to the state, voters will likely follow him again, says Scott Jennings. Donald Trump may have just taken Ohio off the table for 2020, he writes.

It looks as if Ohio is in the bag for Trump. Virginia seems like a great candidate for a flip. Even if Trump loses Pennsylvania and Michigan he has the EV votes.

The former vice president is crushing the Democratic field in the nation’s third-largest state.

Articles like this makes me think that Biden will win the nomination. Personally I think the Dems should write off 2020 and let the crazy left get the nomination and then let them crash and burn.

As Facebook tries to ban extremists, the president amplifies them.

So apparently Laura Loomer is a right wing extremist.

Frank Caramagna also resigned as Elmwood Park's mayor after authorities say he interfered in the 2017 mayoral election.

One more example of vote rigging and manipulation. Remember, there are people out there who don't think that voter fraud occurs. And, if it does, it's not done by Democrats.

The federal government is charging a Massachusetts judge with obstruction of justice after she allegedly helped an illegal alien escape.

So, let me get this straight, a judge thinks it's ok for citizens to pick and choose the laws they want to obey. Yeah, right.

Ok. And I will too. If you, as a Muslim, want apostates killed then I don't want you here.

If you think atheists should be killed then I don't want you here.

If you think gays should be killed then I don't want you here.
