I'm really not a very fibrous being. Maybe some Metamucil would help?

Merry-go-round-'n-round.

The Department of Homeland Security’s head of outreach to religious and community organizations Rev. Jamie Johnson resigned yesterday after some audio from 2008 came out where he told the listeners that the black community had “turned America’s major cities into slums because of laziness, drug use and sexual promiscuity.” He also said black people were anti-Semitic because they were jealous of Jewish people.

This was one of John Kelly's appointments that week he was head of the Department of Homeland Security.

Credit where it is due though, those are 3 pretty decent reasons for creating a slum. A lot of slums get created all over the world without nearly as much fun being had.

Trump just keeps working to alienate his base. Looking to cut welfare, which would have the side effect of putting poor whites in the crosshairs.

News, Fake

Looks like one of those mindless sheep has ruled against the Military Trans Ban, citing that (get this) the administration has a credibility issue. Apparently they don't believe that the administration wanting to ban trans people has anything to do with readiness or national security. I'm going to go on a limb and guess most of the doubt came from 45 insisting he consulted someone, and then all the military advisors pointing out that they had no idea what was going on.

For someone who has such a great mind he sure seems to have an awful lot of trouble with mindless sheep. Shame too, wool is fun.

Also the internet is going to be annoying about this net neutrality thing all day today isn't it?

So far I've not seen much. Just random Subreddits with the same image posted and a, sometimes, title tailored to the sub. Like checking Rick and Morty and it said something about "Rick wouldn't want blah blah blah".

Gloom and Doom (again), and in the end it'll be forgotten. Coworker yesterday says "Oh, check this out, this is what Portugal does, selling their internet sites like cable bundles! This is what we'll have starting tomorrow." Smiley: rolleyes

Yeah reddit is going nuts over it. I guess I'm sympathetic and all, but can't buy into the idea that the sky is falling. Our only internet access is the data on our cell plan currently, "no data charges for this app" kinds of things are fairly commonplace, and speeds are pretty limited, so maybe I don't see the big deal. I've never run into issues getting the information I needed, or seeing what I wanted on the internet, but maybe I'm in the dark and things will get worse. Either way, something, something, first world problems.

Sounds like the perfect time for a whynotboth.jpg kind of post to stir the pot.

On the movie note though the wife took the kids to see Wonder free tickets through the facial deformities charity we're a part of Smiley: thumbsup and said nice things to everyone about it afterwards, so you can blame them for part of the unexpected hype around that movie that's stealing some of the thunder.

Honestly, I liked it. I have seen a ton of people online complaining about the villain, and I had to let them all know that they could have been fighting the common cold, and I would still have been excited to see these heroes together on the big screen.

On that note most movies could use a few more Berserkers frothing in a drug-induced trance and slaughtering everything that moves.

The best argument for net neutrality I have seen...

If FCC dismantles it, and you get internet from Verizon, they may force you to use YAHOO as your search engine (because they own it), but PAY to use GOOGLE.

I've heard okay things about it, but I was wary due to the previous movies and wouldn't have gotten to see it anyway since I became somewhat preoccupied last weekend. And this weekend we're taking a herd of kids to see Coco because, well, Pixar. So, maybe next weekend.

I've seen the Flash Scene™ where Supes stares him down in SpeedForce time three or four times a day for the past week, though. That was neat.

Which is unfortunately where I tune out a bit. I've yet to see anyone make a strong case that this kind of thing is a reasonable possibility. I can buy into the idea that you'll get smoother streaming from a specific on-demand video service, or recommended links from their affiliates, or discounted data usage from certain apps/sites/etc. but the idea that whole sections of the web are all of a sudden going to disappear, or be heavily gated, sounds a bit far-fetched at this point in time.

Edit: to clarify "far-fetched" in that some of the theories sound so bad that I can't comprehend people paying for the service in the first place. Why would anyone pay for something that cut out a large portion of the web? Unless you're getting free internet, or something close, it seems like that'd be a terribly unpopular service.

I like how you attributed that quote to me, when I saw it on someone's twitter and just thought it was humorous. FAKE NEWS!

Also, the joke was that Yahoo sucks, but since you tuned out, you missed it.

To be fair, one dimensional doesn't even begin to describe how thin of a character Steppenwolf is in that movie. I enjoyed the movie for what it was, but it definitely has problems.

Well, yeah, I won't deny the movie has problems. I didn't say it was a perfect film, I said that I liked it.
