Hot Damn, you can be funny! I like it ( I do not always see it, keep it a secret, ok, bro?)
EDIT: Might be on topic. If you are a racist, does not say you are white. Just saying you are a socialist?

One thing Bush 43 got right, "the soft bigotry of low expectations".

Another Black Man Has Died in the Home of Democratic Donor Ed Buck

Quote:
The body of another young black man has been found at the West Hollywood apartment of Ed Buck — a prominent Democratic donor who allegedly has a fetish for drugging sex workers — reports Wehoville.

Buck, a white man in his 60s, was investigated previously by authorities after the death of Gemmel Moore, who died of a methamphetamine overdose in Buck's home in July 2017. Since Moore's death was classified as an accidental overdose, numerous young black gay men have alleged that Buck has a fetish for shooting drugs into black men he picks up off the street or on hookup sites. Moore had written about Buck injecting him with dangerous drugs before his death.

Typical. Another typical Democrat: degenerates with no ethics, morals or values except lies and hypocrisy to satisfy their own appetites, all the while ranting and waving their hands about helping others and the common good. Horse shit.

With all of the furor coming from the Patreon bans, the deplatforming of conservative voices, the deplatforming of Gab, etc etc... a common thing you hear is that this is not the government doing this.

However, Operation Choke Point seems to be the underlying reason why the banks and credit card companies are putting pressure on Patreon & social media to deplatform, or else.

on Lawful Re-use of Scooters

Quote:
Every now and then we have to remind someone that it's not illegal for people to report facts that they dislike. This time, the offender is electric scooter rental company Bird Rides, Inc.

Electric scooters have swamped a number of cities across the US, many of the scooters carelessly discarded in public spaces. Bird, though, has pioneered a new way to pollute the commons by sending a meritless takedown letter to a journalist covering the issue. The company cites the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and implies that even writing about the issue could be illegal. It's not.

hey! wrote:

Bird sent a "Notice of Claimed Infringement" over this article on Boing Boing, one of the Internet’s leading sources of news and commentary on social, educational, political, artistic and scientific development in popular culture. The article reports on the fact that large numbers of Bird scooters are winding up in impound lots, and that it's possible to lawfully purchase these scooters when cities auction them off, and then to lawfully modify those scooters so they work without the Bird app.


How without a Harley sound? We have to IP that shit. Not to say anything about the article said, just saying someone leading the pavement ahead.

Sounds optional and pretty much related to the "Reputational Risk." lol @ China's fledgling social credit system.

And no first amendment lawsuits yet?

Way ahead of you. I've got a bank account in Hong Kong that allows me to transfer between 5 currencies at any given rate with no charge, I can also switch to physical gold/silver and have that deposited in an anonymous physical lock box for me.

Although, I dont think any HK banks will do business with American nationals anymore so have another passport ready. Otherwise it's very easy to set up.
