Obama Terrifies The Kochs By Taking The Citizens United Fight To The States

While addressing the Illinois General Assembly, President Obama did what the billionaires and special interests fear most. He took the Citizens United fight to the states.

If this is moderate, what does extreme look like?
 
No one who cares about the US' long-term viability as a world power and "land of opportunity" should be fooled into thinking Kasich is a moderate. He privatizes everything he can, ignores the Establish Clause whenever he thinks he can get away with it, and his policies and priorities put everyone who isn't an 8-digit-income campaign contributor or political crony at risk.
Funding issues, charter scandals, a drop in the state's education ranking — and more.

This is a net benefit to humanity.
 
Here, you can see the Pirates of Penzience hailing from Kazakhstan to proudly report having almost completed Aaron Swartz's great work of turning Wikipedia into gold publishing the sum total of human knowledge.

This was a game changer. Before September 2011, there was no way for people to freely access paywalled research en masse; researchers like Elbakyan were out in the cold. Sci-Hub is the first website to offer this service and now makes the process as simple as the click of a single button.

As the number of papers in the LibGen database expands, the frequency with which Sci-Hub has to dip into publishers’ repositories falls and consequently the risk of Sci-Hub triggering its alarm bells becomes ever smaller. Elbakyan explains, “We have already downloaded most paywalled articles to the library ... we have almost everything!” This may well be no exaggeration. Elsevier, one of the most prolific and controversial scientific publishers in the world, recently alleged in court that Sci-Hub is currently harvesting Elsevier content at a rate of thousands of papers per day. Elbakyan puts the number of papers downloaded from various publishers through Sci-Hub in the range of hundreds of thousands per day, delivered to a running total of over 19 million visitors.
How one researcher created a pirate bay for science more powerful than even libraries at top universities.

Oi! Now that's exiting news! I'll start keeping tabs on this project.

Two sides of the same populist coin, pandering to extremes.
 
// Beyond railing against the wreckage, the other commonality between the two big New Hampshire winners is in the nature of the cure they offer. Let the others propose carefully budgeted five-point plans. Sanders and Trump offer magic.

Take Sanders’ New Hampshire victory speech. It promised the moon: college education, free; universal health care, free; world peace, also free because we won’t be “the policeman of the world” (mythical Sunni armies will presumably be doing that for us). Plus a guaranteed $15 minimum wage. All to be achieved by taxing the rich. Who can be against a “speculation” tax (whatever that means)?

So with Trump. Leave it to him. Jobs will flow back in a rush from China, from Japan, from Mexico, from everywhere. Universal health care, with Obamacare replaced by “something terrific.” Veterans finally taken care of. Drugs stopped cold at the border. Indeed, an end to drug addiction itself. Victory upon victory of every kind.

How? That question never comes up anymore. //
This season’s politics of fantasy have their roots in the Obama presidency.

Naturally, this doesn't count because they're "establishment" progressives, amirite?
 
Well mostly anyway. Congressional Progressive Caucus Abandons Bernie | GO BLINDLY
Candidate Bernie Sanders chose to make the Presidential election about a label called "progressive." Over the past few years, the label has been associated with the Occupy Movement, Anonymous, Edwa...

This is absurd.

(And, yes, it swims, too.)
 
I know a short clip of the Sherp ATV from Russia has been making the rounds, but there's a longer video that you simply gotta see. All I know is that THIS will be the vehicle to have during the zombie apocalypse.

Introduction
  1. If what I say is unclear, try taking it at face value. I tend to be blunt.
  2. If it still makes no sense, consider that I have a dry, sometimes dark, sense of humor.
  3. Maybe you're not the one who's supposed to understand.
I speak only for myself, not anyone else. I do not seek to insult, but I recognize that it's sometimes a foreseeable consequence, and I'm ok with that.

Some of my posts are political. You are free to respond, even if you disagree, but I have zero tolerance for bigots. Not only will I block you, I will report you for violating the ToS.
