  1. Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway! 2:40 PM - 24 Nov 2017 ----------------------------------------------------------------- TIME‏Verified account @TIME 40m40 minutes ago The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6. 2,786 replies 16,363 retweets 32,737 likes
  2. America's Gun Culture...

    Giffords group asks web hosts to shut down ‘ghost gun’ sites "A gun control group founded by former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords asked two web hosting companies on Friday to shut down websites selling parts and machines that help make untraceable homemade firearms known as “ghost guns.” The Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence asked the providers that host GhostGunner.net and GhostGuns.com to disable the websites for violating the hosting companies’ terms of service. The sites sell kits, components and machines that help create homemade semi-automatic weapons. It’s legal to build a gun in a home or a workshop, and advances in 3-D printing and milling have made it easier to do so. The kits can be purchased legally for a few hundred dollars without the kind of background check required for traditional gun purchases......... https://apnews.com/7b9214aea1b147fc8cf5f780cd791d4d/Giffords-group-asks-web-hosts-to-shut-down-'ghost-gun'-sites?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP

  4. "Without net neutrality, the incumbents who provide access to the internet would be able to pick winners or losers in the market. They could impede traffic from our services in order to favor their own services or established competitors," the letter said. "Or they could impose new tolls on us, inhibiting consumer choice." The signatories said they're worried these actions could hinder the ability of new entrepreneurs to start a business and have a global reach — shifting the focus away from the quality of their ventures to whether they have the "capacity to pay tolls to internet access providers." https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/backlash-building-over-plan-gut-net-neutrality-n823436?cid=sm_npd_ms_fb_ma

    Journalist Investigating Trump And Russia Says 'Full Picture Is One Of Collusion' ".... there was a very determined effort by the Soviets to bring him over, and that moreover, his personality was the kind of thing they were looking for. They were looking for narcissists. They were looking for people who were kind of - dare I say it - corruptible, interested in money, people who were not necessarily faithful in their marriages and also sort of opportunists who were not very strong analysts or principle people. And if you work your way down the list through these sort of - the KGB's personality questionnaire, Donald Trump ticks every single box....... .... the sources who were right on Ukraine were behind the Trump dossier. And the FBI knows that. The U.S. intelligence community knows that. And that's really why they take Steele pretty seriously. I mean, like any intelligence officer, his work is not perfect. He's not infallible. There may be some errors there. But broadly, I think people in British and American intelligence think the dossier is correct, which means that Donald Trump is compromised. .... https://www.npr.org/2017/11/21/565654507/journalist-investigating-trump-and-russia-says-full-picture-is-one-of-collusion
  6. The new poll tax is sweeping across the South- Hundreds of thousands of Americans are being denied the right to vote because they are poor "...In nine states, Republican legislators have enacted laws that disenfranchise anyone with outstanding legal fees or court fines. For example, in Alabama more than 100,000 people who owe money — roughly 3 percent of the state’s voting-age population – have been struck from voting rolls. This is unconstitutional. In 1964, the 24th amendment abolished the poll tax, a Jim Crow tactic used to bar poor blacks from voting.......... https://www.salon.com/2017/11/24/the-new-poll-tax_partner/

  10. Black Friday otherwise known as....

    The Black Friday frenzy officially begins today. But many say the thrill is gone. "...Before Black Friday became just another day of discounts, it was the largest shopping day of the year. For decades, customers lined up at the country’s shopping malls and big-box stores clamoring for deals they couldn’t get the other 364 days of the year. It was a frenetic hunt — that sometimes led to mass hysteria — for discounts. There were stampedes in stores and arguments in the aisles. But that madness has died down in recent years, as more Americans opt to quietly buy big-screen TVs and discounted sweaters from the comfort of their homes. Snagging the year’s best deals no longer means forgoing Thanksgiving dinner to stand outside in the snow — https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/the-black-friday-frenzy-officially-begins-today-but-many-say-the-thrill-is-gone/2017/11/23/0a1b5f5e-c62c-11e7-aae0-cb18a8c29c65_story.html?hpid=hp_hp-top-table-low_black-friday-11am%3Ahomepage%2Fstory&utm_term=.64ea0deca030&tid=sm_tw
  11. Black Friday otherwise known as....

    "One of the biggest recent movie franchises in the country is “The Hunger Games,” in which the ostentatiously wealthy people of Panem’s capital rule over the poorer districts from which tributes are selected each year to kill each other in a violent media spectacle. It’s a grotesque display in which the lives of the impoverished are offered up as entertainment for the comfortable. It’s hard to see the film and not think of the way TV news has covered Black Friday. Consider the jocular hosts’ grinning affect as they relate news of brawls throughout the country in this clip from Fox & Friends First today, for example, or how numerous Web sites will round up the best brawl videos.... ... the former clip comes complete with a pre-roll ad for Black Friday deals. In other words, videos of the type of violence that takes place on Black Friday are being used to sell the shopping holiday back to us, the capitalist serpent swallowing its own tail. ........ https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2014/11/28/black-friday-brawl-videos-are-how-rich-people-shame-poor-ones/?utm_term=.e76d04328fe1&tid=sm_tw & WHY do news broadcasts air "Best of Black Friday Deals"!??

    Need-to-knows before buying Google Home or Amazon Echo Make sure you consider the uses, pitfalls, and privacy issues before buying a voice-controlled assistant this year "I f you've seen the commercials, you know that Google Home and Amazon Echo – the sleek, voice-activated home assistants that do everything from turn off your lights to read your kids a story – are being touted as the smartest things since sliced bread. With their kid-targeted games, activities, books, and even homework help, what parent wouldn't want one of these devices to replace screens and make life run more smoothly? But as many early adopters have come to realize, it takes work to make them useful. Otherwise, you're the proud owner of a very expensive kitchen timer. And as with any artificial intelligence (AI) technology that "learns" your habits, the gains may not be as great as what you give up to use it. Find out what these devices can do, how well they work, and what the privacy issues are before you introduce one into your house. .... Should I worry about privacy? Absolutely. The privacy and security issues related to these devices are complex, evolving, and potentially very serious (and cannot all be covered in this article). If you have an Amazon or Google account, you've already accepted some of the privacy risks of online life. With Alexa and Home, the same companies that track what you buy, what you watch, where you go online, and even your contacts are right there in your home. And they're listening. ..... https://www.salon.com/2017/11/24/need-to-knows-before-buying-google-home-or-amazon-echo_partner/
