Black Friday Shut Down
Today I do laundry. Family is coming into town and we are going to celebrate two birthdays this weekend.

I think I tried once to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving and it made me a holiday hater. It's a good thing too considering the mayhem published in the Daily Mail.

The smiling faces, strangely engineered shopping carts and some day-glow yellow vests in the photos of the Daily Mail article suggest that this is a British contrivance of the growing U.S. nightmare of commercial hooliganism.

Happy Thanksgiving

I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Especially those suffering who are fawned over for the holidays so the rich can appear be magnanimous, then left to be marginalized and blamed for their circumstances for the rest of the year.

You Are Being Played By Those Crying "Fake News!"

Yes, you are being played. Especially those of you who are upset about Hillary losing the election.

The main-stream media is crying wolf, or more accurately crying "Fake News!" Making mountains out of mole hills. Most of us know this already.

For the most part they are blaming Russia or people in the Baltic states, which makes my B*s*t meter ping at maximum.

They are trying to blame Facebook and Google, attempting to shame them and other social media outlets into censoring users. Facebook and Google do not create the content, they are merely the medium.

You don't see gun manufacturers and gun store owners going to jail because people used their guns to commit crimes do you? So why should Google and Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, or even 4chan be held responsible for any of their content?

There are some other more realistic reasons behind this outcry about "fake news:"

For instance, some Establishment Democrats would like to distract the public from the way they treated Bernie Sanders during the primary. Bernie could have won the election, based on the primary polling numbers.

Some Establishment Republicans and Democrats would like to reign-in and have complete control over communication on the Internet for their own ends.

The Establishment would love to over-regulate media on the Internet to make it less appealing to the public.

Obviously the corporate owners of the main-stream media want to vilify if not completely destroy the alternative Internet media, because they refuse to accept that their main-stream content is stale white bread at best, and at worst, completely deceptive and literally, physically unhealthy corporate propaganda for humans and the environment.

So when you hear on CNN's Reliable Sources, stories about fake news and all its chicanery, think about who is really being served by whining about it.

All you need to do is verify a story with at least two other sources from different or opposing perspectives to weed out the false reporting, which for the most part is just troll humor.

The best part about this is you can find out who the main-stream corporate cronies are who are trying to pass themselves off as alternative media by looking for reporting on "fake news."

Personal Update

Things got too expensive in Washington State so I moved back to Illinois. I'm still decompressing and getting organized. I shed my car, my apartment, my car insurance, cable and utility bills, so my expenses have dramatically improved.

Soon I'll need to get a new car and insurance. Maybe a 4 door sedan or a 4 door truck. Once you get a truck everyone will want you to help them move something so maybe I'll just get a Smart Car. Definitely not one of those Lada cars that always seem to show up in crash videos on YouTube.

How To Qualify Free Speech

Despite claims that money or any kind of speech is free speech or that the debate over what qualifies as free speech is still open, it's easy to qualify speech by simply holding speech accountable to the rules of debate and to the rules of logic. People who fully understand Critical Thinking are the only people who should speak.
There should be legal consequences for anyone speaking outside the parameters of these rules, not violence. What are the legal consequences of Illegitimate Speech?

Some More News

I collect articles this way so it doesn't look like I'm spamming social media with individual posts.
I only made it about half-way through my sources page for these.

2016 Primary Recent News and Future Sources

I thought I would take a proactive approach this time and dig up some potential news sources for the Democratic Primary coming up on June 7.

Before the June 7 Primary there is Washington State, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, The WA Primary is apparently only aesthetic.

Here are some recent posts and potential local sources. These are long-established sources, so you should still look for social media posts by actual participants.

How News Was Spun About The Nevada Democratic Convention

You can easily tell bias when a news outlets says "Hillary Wins State X, Bernie Claims Victory in State Y" or "Bernie Wins State X, Hillary Claims Victory in State Y."

The real hardcore gas-lighting of the public can be found in direct insinuations, or even more clever tacit insinuations such as playing the victim or expressing fear from a group you just deliberately incited into a rage.

Here is a table of stark differences between fact and false propaganda.
