Surely, the less wealthy people that vote Republican will realize what's going on, right?

"Gleba Moagem & Padaria: Friends in Knead"

"Bread may be fundamental to Portugal's food culture, but over the last few years the baked goods landscape in the country has begun looking increasingly uniform, with fake neo-classic franchising playing no small part in its decline."

"The fact that local governments would be expanding their jail populations as just another revenue stream should be chilling to anyone living in these rural communities."

"The guy won’t pay and he won’t listen,"

No, really?!?
Oh, my god.

The unwillingness of some of the country’s most prestigious attorneys and their law firms to represent Trump has complicated the administration’s efforts to mount a coherent defense strategy to deal with probes being conducted by four congressional committees as well as Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.

The president’s chief lawyer now in charge of the case is Marc E. Kasowitz, a tough New York civil litigator who for years has aggressively represented Trump in multiple business and public relations disputes — often with threats of countersuits and menacing public statements — but who has little experience dealing with complex congressional and Justice Department investigations that are inevitably influenced by media coverage and public opinion.

The kicker:

“The concerns were, ‘The guy won’t pay and he won’t listen,’” said one lawyer close to the White House who is familiar with some of the discussions between the firms and the administration, as well as deliberations within the firms themselves.

"Make our planet great again."
Wow, that has got to sting, in some circles! ;-)
Make our planet great again

Today Trump dramatically passed on global leadership from the US to the other countries of the world. Emmanuel Macron is among those willing to take over, saying that scientists and engineers concerned for the future are welcome in France. Here's his speech in English.

"...we plan to have Chrome stop showing ads (including those owned or served by Google) on websites that are not compliant with the Better Ads Standards starting in early 2018." (emphasis mine)

Glad this is finally announced. I'm really excited about this initiative. The current state of web advertising is a race-to-the-bottom sea of crap. Chrome's goal is to make the web better, and we have the leverage to try and find a balance that serves users better while still letting publishers survive. With that power comes the responsibility to try and help. I'm glad we're accepting that responsibility and I'll be looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

Google's number one corporate principle is "focus on the user and all else will follow". Users are not being well-served today. If we can serve them better, they will be happier, sites will be better off, and Google will benefit as well. That's especially important in the long run. Protecting the web is not about next quarter's revenue stream; it's about what happens in twenty years. We are aiming to build a robust web that the world can depend on.

EDIT: And here's the Chromium post about it:

This article is brutal in how it cuts across the BS and exposes it.
One of the best articles in a long time.
