I heard Bill Maher used his first day back to dump on Biden

and suggest we should keep trump. When will Bill Maher move to Fux Nooze. That's where he belongs.

Just got an idea about a new congressional caucus

called "Dumbasses in Congress"

Of course Marjorie Taylor Greene would be the Chairperson. The Freedumb Caucus members would all be in automatically.

Coerced, censored, shut down: How will Supreme Court manage social media's toxic sludge?

from USAToday


WASHINGTON – Looking back on it, Philip Cohen takes a measure of pride in the fact that he was blocked by the former president of the United States. But in that moment in 2017, when Cohen pulled up Donald Trump's feed on what was then known as Twitter and realized what happened, he didn't feel smug or vindicated. He felt muted. "I was honestly shocked," said Cohen, a sociologist who was blocked after repeatedly posting criticism of Trump's tweets and who responded by suing the former president and claiming that the move violated the First Amendment. Cohen said his snarky posts were like "carrying a sign at a protest – but with a much bigger audience."

Though the Supreme Court dodged Cohen's appeal in 2021, the justices now have another opportunity to decide whether public officials may block Americans on social media. It's one of several cases pending at the high court with potentially enormous consequences for the way Americans interact on the internet. Legal experts say the Supreme Court term that begins next month could also be the most important in decades in determining the extent of the government's power to regulate the online content.

At stake in one set of cases is whether the First Amendment shields social media platforms for their handling of controversial voices and views. The question is critical as Facebook, YouTube and X play an ever growing role in the lives of Americans and democracy. Yet another case questions whether the Biden administration crossed a line when officials pressured the platforms to remove posts dealing with COVID-19 and elections.

WTF Alexa!!!!!!

Jesus H Christ. Alexa, who only notifies me when a storm's brewing or I have a delivery just blipped in to tell me Hunter Biden was indicted. WHO THE FUCK CARES? And why is this more important than every shitty thing these republicans have done and are trying to do to destroy our democracy? She never makes a peep about that! Not even a peep about Dump or his a-holes. How fucking weird is this country going to get? The shitty ass wisconsin repuglicans just voted to remove a non-partisan election official. I guess that doesn't rank up there with a dumbass weapons charge for Hunter Biden. This fucking country is so twisted now.

Anyone have the echo show? Does it keep showing crap from Fux Nooze?

For those that don't know, you can go into your Alexa app and change your news source. I could not believe it defaulted to Fux Nooze. Amazon should change that to make you select a news source instead of just feeding you bullshit. This page shows how you can change your settings.

Saw the movie Soylent Green again

I remember seeing this in the mid 70's. It takes place in 2022 lol. Sadly, watching this movie struck some parallels to what is happening today. The biggest thing is the homeless people all over the streets. Big cities are starting to mirror that. If we keep going the fascist route I am afraid we'll get very close to how society was depicted in that movie. The only difference would be that repug fascists wouldn't even try to feed anyone, they would just let people starve.
