Hillary Clinton Returns: ‘I’d Like to Be President’ by useless_aether in politics

She's going about this all wrong. She needs to simply state that she identifies as president. Then, we would all have to accept her as president or be culturally insensitive jerks. It's socially not allowed to be so insensitive, therefore she would gain the consensus because we would all recognize her as president.

Anti-mask laws

A PEACE OFFICER MAY DETAIN A PERSON WHO IS WEARING A DISGUISE TO VERIFY THE PERSON'S IDENTITY AND TO DETERMINE IF THE PERSON HAS COMMITTED A PUBLIC OFFENSE. This bill was signed into law in March of this year in Arizona. I didn't dig deep enough to see if this part was amended (I had saved it while researching something else back in February).

TIL: The CIA can remote-control cars and cause "accidents" suspiciously similar to dozens experienced by the establishment's political enemies. by HibikiBlack in conspiracy

Haven't read the article yet but was thinking....last year I bought a new car. I've never owned a brand new car, I had a 2006 prior but it was costing more to upkeep than it was worth so I traded it. My old car had no bluetooth or any type of connections, but my new car has all the state of the art type stuff. I thought it was odd though that I can't turn off the radio. I can mute it, but it is always on. Meaning, it is always streaming something since I have xm and I usually link my phone. It maybe nothing, but does anyone find it odd that on newer vehicles we can't completely disconnect with a push of a button? I did some cursory searching and you can disconnect by disabling some wiring, but it is troublesome, at least a bit.

Maybe I am paranoid, I don't know. But I do leave all electronics behind when I run, walk the dogs, or go into stores.

Who believes in conspiracies? New research offers a theory by The_In-Betweener in ConspiracyHeadlines

"Hart hopes the research advances the understanding of why some people are more attracted to conspiracy theories than others."

Once they know why we are attracted to conspiracy theories, they will make sure to limit that attraction. This study is a conspiracy. /s

But seriously, who funds these studies?

I guess if I got the tax breaks that Bezos gets, I'd be committed to the government too.

Amazon is also dipping it's toes in the pharmacy/drug delivery industry and is starting it's own healthcare (aimed at it's own employees, but is rumored to have bigger aspirations). I don't know if I want them to have the keys to my front door....

I think this decision probably caused a lot of distress for you and u/d3rr.

It's a little like the laws in place that hold restaurant owners responsible for patrons that drink, drive, and cause injury to others (and themselves). While the owner may not force the customer to drink or the bartender to serve them, the owner can still face charges for the injury inflicted by that customer because they provided the venue. Fair? Not really, but if your name is on the building you have to cover your ass, or find another profession.

If someone out there uses the grey market in a way that results in any harm, this venue will go down. And unfortunately, some “someone” always does in these kind of situations, eventually. While striving to provide a censorship free platform, you can't leave the door open to possible future litigation, otherwise your message will be totally lost. Say the site becomes successful and exposes news and truth that may not be positive towards those in positions of power, it would be too easy for them to shut it down and shut it up.

I think it stinks that the world operates like this, but this is the world we live in at the moment. I support your decision, and would do the same.

So well said.

Research gives you an understanding of the system, how it works, and how to identify problems. Once problems are identified, solutions can be planned. This is an empowering process, even when the majority doesn't see it but you do. Moving towards a solution just feels good, letting the problem be your guide does not.

I do enjoy your posts and have gleaned insight from them, though I often don't take the time to comment. Thanks for putting information out there!
