I like new tech, and old scotch; good stories, and bad jokes; craft beer and cookie-cut cookies.

What else would the party who hates democracy do?

How can anyone support this tactic?

Also: the ruling has already been decided and the new map drawn. Impeaching them all tomorrow wouldn't stop anything.

Now may be a good time for a little data hygiene over on Facebook, since the company itself seems to have some trouble discerning what truly is in the interests of its users.

I just wiped out 20+ apps that had access to my Facebook data for reasons that I no longer deemed worthwhile. A number of these, I didn't even remember signing up for.

And if you want me to just save you some time, here's a direct link to the relevant portion of settings in Facebook:

Done and Done.
Facebook has allowed third parties like Cambridge Analytica to violate user privacy on an unprecedented scale. For now, here's one way you can take control of your privacy settings.

Just days after a mass shooting at a school that took the lives of 17 people-- many children-- CS/HR 157 was passed in the House today in Florida. It "recognizes public health risk created by pornography & acknowledges need for education, prevention, research, & policy change to protect citizens of this state."

Because, of course, they don't have any other public safety concerns right now, right?

Idiots.

Here's your monthly reminder of why we have this problem.

FTA: The United States is one of only three countries, along with Mexico and Guatemala, that begin with the opposite assumption: that people have an inherent right to own guns.

...

After Britain had a mass shooting in 1987, the country instituted strict gun control laws. So did Australia after a 1996 shooting. But the United States has repeatedly faced the same calculus and determined that relatively unregulated gun ownership is worth the cost to society.

...

"In retrospect Sandy Hook marked the end of the US gun control debate,” Dan Hodges, a British journalist, wrote in a post on Twitter two years ago, referring to the 2012 attack that killed 20 young students at an elementary school in Connecticut. “Once America decided killing children was bearable, it was over.”

I need someone who identifies as a Republican to come along and explain themselves. How can anyone be okay with this?

The overwhelming majority of Americans were free of anything that resembled coherent liberal or conservative ideologies — indeed, only “about 17 percent of the public could both assign the terms ‘liberal’ and ‘conservative’ correctly to the parties and say something sensible about what the terms meant.”

I knew I was in a bubble when it came to my obsession fascination with politics, but I didn't realize how much.
