An ongoing anti-democracy insurrection.

If you haven't yet listened the Rachel Maddow's segment from last night please do: youtu.be/CqassXP6HAU?si=ACSa-D

Maddow correctly frames the issue as defense of democracy, and reminds us the insurrection in this country is in full swing. Powerful billionaires and the GOP are at this very moment actively engaged a well coordinated broad based effort to elect a criminal insurrectionist, put an end to democracy, and transform the US into a fascist kleptocracy.

"As with Boeing in the late 1990s, Apple is financializing; it now spends twice as much on stock buybacks as it does on R&D, and that’s because it faces no meaningful competition that forces it to innovate. For sure, Apple has fantastic development capacity, as illustrated by the Vision Pro, but it increasingly degrades the quality of its own flagship product - the iPhone - for the purpose of maintaining its market power." @matthewstoller thebignewsletter.com/p/why-the

I think the laypeople are being confused and made to believe it is over their heads.


It worked.

Google Search can be baaaaaad. Do they even try anymore? 🤷‍♂️

Happy Apple Vision Pro preorder day!

A bipartisan map in #Michigan that will give Blacks more voting power in #Detroit in state legislative elections has been approved by a bipartisan commission tasked to do so. The next step is for the courts to approve the new maps. michiganadvance.com/2024/02/28

As long as I live, I will never forgive Mitch McConnell for both causing irreparable damage to the Supreme Court of the United States, and not voting to convict Donald Trump.

Numerous people, including Fani Willis, one of #Trump's prosecutors, have been forced to go into hiding because of the rampant mob violence that Donald Trump is fomenting.

Fascinating to see the Times slowly trying to come to grips with the way they’ve been played by Moscow.

It takes them seven paragraphs to get to the fact that the allegations against Biden were (passive voice) “made up.”

Not till paragraph twelve does the real protagonist appear: Russian intelligence. It’s a Russian disinformation operation. Let’s see if we can say that out loud. masto.ai/@Nonilex/111984017335
