Grew up in Southern California patronizing burrito stands on the way to the beach in areas that experience rapid first-generation immigrant growth. Being friendly with the girls eager to offer free food and phone numbers, learned how easy they acquired SSN's for non-citizen employees. Call to a cousin, and their new employee is on payroll. Learned the casual disregard for law in these populations. Each family seemed to have half their cousins as non-citizens who knew how to sign up for numerous benefits programs (fraud), and shared step by step with one another how to go through the process. In one case a cousin was arrested having sex with a minor in a public park with a loaded handgun under the drivers seat, and deported. A week later other cousins had traveled to visit family back home and had brought him back into the US. When you and I pay taxes and look at the ever growing cost of everything -- we're subsidizing the systemic fraud California policy invited in.

As President Joe Biden tries to save his $3.5 trillion overhaul plan, Press secretary Jen Psaki describes the White House's role in negotiations like TV show. "Maybe the West Wing, if something good happens, maybe Veep if not." (Sept. 29)

Plays into the common gossip that the Democrat faction in Washington literally see themselves LARPing they're in the tv show West Wing. The verbal blunder reinforces that gossip.

Frustration is almost always the result of an unmet expectation. The sugarcoating and unreasonable promises made cause these harms. That and a cocktail of strong hormones producing the equivalent of teenage puberty mood swings. There's a narrative handhold useful there to bludgeon those who treat this demographic with kids gloves.

Twelve former top U.S. national security officials are urging Congress to hit pause on a package of antitrust bills in order to consider how breaking up tech companies could harm the U.S. in its competition with China, according to a letter obtained by Axios.The big picture: Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and former Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats are among those arguing that imposing severe restrictions solely on U.S. giants will pave the way for a tech landscape dominated by

I presume these are the same 12 intel officials who insisted Russia interfered in the 2016 election. Who presumably are ex-intel officials because they retired to move to lucrative payoffs in consultant positions in US tech firms to lubricate the fascist merger of Corporate and State.

In an exclusive interview, Lt. Michael Byrd, who shot Ashli Babbitt, said he opened fire only as a “last resort” after the Capitol rioters failed to comply with his commands.

Imagine the reaction if the Christchurch Shooter gave interview and claimed, 'I saved countless lives!"

ZeroHedge - On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero

The Carnegie Mellon University professor quote at the end is gold. It's the complete inversion of what we observe in pirating trends since the advent of the internet.

Provide a reliable service, designed for minimum steps to pay and watch, and list for a reasonable price and consumers pay. Apple settled that conversation with the success of its music store.

When a painful and irritating process to find and access the content a consumer wants to watch and pay exists, then the population flows to the less irritating option.

There's a long-standing view in the entertainment industry that the customer base they're targeting must be bullied and harassed into paying them for content no matter how many flaming hoops they put in the way to do so. The entertainment industry is a business. Laws of nature apply to them, they must meet customer needs and what they are paid is tied to how well they are meeting those customer needs. The entitlement drips out of the out of touch statements and lobbied for laws since the time of Napster.

Carnegie Mellon University professor and piracy expert Michael D. Smith added: “Pirates behave like consumers do. If you make it sufficiently hard for them to get something free, they’ll pay for it.”

Mother-of-four Samantha Willis, from Derry in Northern Ireland, passed away with Covid on Friday in Altnagelvin Hospital after giving birth to her daughter Eviegrace, her husband Josh Willis said.

Fat. Unvaccinated is not the correct descriptor. Health compromised fat woman dies of the coof is the story. We know fat people and old people have compromised immune systems at risk from this thing. No surprises here.

The China model -- fake numbers. Very early on China was caught fabricating a 'turn around' narrative. When analyzed the margin of error disappeared in the day to day number. This revealed they were lazy in their fabrication, data professionals spotted the linear trend they used to tell the story of recovery. Was bullshit. Caught in the lie, China returned to reporting accurate numbers for a couple days. Then stopped. They simply haven't let the rest of the world peer into their country. We have no idea what the true numbers are. We do know the for profit incentive they had to give the appearance they had beaten it and their manufacturing had not taken a hit.

US is just as bad for just as political reasons. The flavor the US politicians took as to over-state the numbers as justification to modify election methodology and crack down on large numbers of people.

That's not much of a threat when it is clear the war will be fought through the courts. This is a hill to die on.
