It is nice that CEO’s of companies took the time to write about us small folk: https://int.nyt.com/data/documenthelper/1699-gun-control-letter-to-the-sena/3258ed616a016f80dfa3/optimized/full.pdf#page=1 Sure, lets give MORE power to our corrupt law system. While we need a solution, let us simple folk figure it out.
The world would be a better place if more people spoke up.
I need to read this when/if I get a chance: https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/hot-planet/shut-up-franzen/
This can’t be good heh: https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/10/asia/japan-environment-minister-fukushima-water-hnk-intl/index.html
I was watching/or reading something yesterday. I think that it had to do with the fact that the white-house has no obligation to allow press access to them, and how it has always been a ‘rule’, but not a law.
Right after that, I was watching a video, and they mentioned that for X to happen the entire government chain of command would have to be corrupt, and that we should not need a law/etc.
It has me thinking about law, and the fact that entire chains of command, from the bottom to the top are corrupt. It is a politicians paradise right now, and it seems like it is just going to get worse and worse.
The trickle of social media that I read now, is already filled with political marketing. We are electing a product, sponsored by corporations, and paid to attack our values. I would rather elect a homeless person, living on the street (at least they know what reality is), then elect another politician as president.
If you do not know abut this, the big deal was that once you were on the list, there was no way to get off. Sucks that lawsuits decide some of America’s laws, especially a law like this: https://news.slashdot.org/story/19/09/05/2030200/federal-judge-says-terrorist-watchlist-is-unconstitutional
Flexible screens are awesome, but can you imagine the guy trying to convince the team that we should go back to folding phones?: https://mobile.slashdot.org/story/19/09/05/2210237/how-samsung-fixed-the-galaxy-fold

Feeling a bit run down today. Baby had me up at 1, but I do not think that is it. Seems like some work stress is growing.
Do you think the Chinese government will run over there citizens again like they did last time?:
China has had enough time to build enough camps to house the million that are protesting now. It has gone on for months, and they just may arrest them all. Either that, or this may just end up like occupy wall-street, where it is just taken as one big joke, and the media helped dissolve it.
Nothing like classifying protesting as a terrorist act. Here is an info-graphic that I saw this morning about there demands:
That last one is a big demand. China can fake the rest, but to setup a democracy? Well I guess every third world government fakes it. Why can’t China? Anyways, I figured I would try and help spread the word. We all need to be watching China right now.
This one is funny. https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2019/09/senator-mark-zuckerberg-should-face-the-possibility-of-a-prison-term/ Sure, Zuckerberg is the real issue. Anything to remove the focus from the spying that the government does. Or the court cases that the FBI pushed to make it legal in the public eye.
Bill this morning, done. CC providers do not care to lower interest. I had quicken setup in a win vm, but it never seemed to work good. I think they migrated over to web based…but I do not know. I was going to look at some budgeting applications. YANB, etc. Need to be able to sync between Android devices.
