Since today is Net Neutrality Day and all that, I'm just going to repost this link to one of the first posts I made about Net Neutrality, seven years ago. My stance has not changed between then and now, except maybe to say that I feel like regulations to keep big corporations from shitting all over Net Neutrality are even more vital today.

A pretty good read.

(EDIT)

Again, the perpetual quandary: Is it worse to actually be a racist, misogynist, homophobic, antisemitic, anti-Muslim, idiotic shitsmear on the underwear of humanity? Or is it worse to merely pretend to be a racist, misogynist, homophobic, antisemitic, anti-Muslim, idiotic shitsmear on the underwear of humanity to the extent that nobody can tell the difference at all?

I still don't have an adequate answer for this, except for "it doesn't really matter which is the case, because it's abominable in either case."

Here is the article on which the Twitter thread is based.

Hell, at this rate, maybe I should just bring the Trump tweets tag back. ¬_¬

This is his response:


Banal, worse than useless, GOP talking point bullshit behind cut )


Just to note, I never once mentioned "Obamacare" in my message to him. All I said was that I urged him to not support the horrendous AHCA, especially given all the dubious secrecy surrounding it.

So, once again, same as before, Senator Tillis has opted to toe the GOP party line and be a part of the problem rather than the solution. I sincerely hope he is voted out of office the next time he is up for election, but then again, knowing this fucking state, he'll probably be reelected. *weary sigh*

So, after James Comey said that Trump lied, the White House response was that Trump is not a crook.

"Media Criticism From 'a Proud Deplorable'"

In case it wasn't already clear, this right here is what sane, Trump-opposing citizens of the United States of America and the rest of the world are up against. The fact that these irredeemable idiots are supposedly proud to be called "deplorable," and, in fact, call themselves "deplorable," tells you pretty much everything you'll ever need to know about them. Words mean things, after all, and these dumbasses are indeed 100% absolutely accurate when they call themselves deplorable.

Seriously, even if Trump himself came out and said, "Yes, I'm a traitor and, yes, I stole the election with the help of the Russians," and then started playing video involving himself, his children, and Vladimir Putin, all of them performing the contents of the worst Aristocrats joke you've ever heard, it wouldn't matter at all, because these goddamned unrepentant asshats would still shriek "FAKE NEWS!" and "WHERE'S THE PROOF?!" and "PROUD TO BE DEPLORABLE HERPITY DURRR!"

Once again, as I've said numerous times in the past, the sheer stupidity, grievous gullibility, incredible ignorance, and horrendous hatefulness of these militant morons never ceases to astonish me. You think I'd be fucking used to it by now, but my befuddlement that these people can be so goddamn terrible (or, hell, that they can continue to exist at all) grows with every passing day and every example of their asininity that I witness, such as the above opinion piece.

This is the "war room" shit I'm referring to, if you hadn't already heard about it.

(If you'd rather view this in the original Twitter, just go here.)

I'm going to embed my tweets below, but if you'd rather read it on Twitter itself (where it'll probably be prettier), here is my Twitter thread response to this other Twitter thread (as retweeted by [personal profile] tokoz's [protected] Twitter).


Huge Twitter thread behind cut )


This is, of course, assuming that we still actually have a chance to pull the emergency brake on this runaway train before it sails over the cliff. This is assuming the original thread above isn't correct about the GOP allowing Trump to somehow get away with something utterly, ridiculously, irreversibly[1], abjectly asinine, like getting rid of any further elections altogether.

[1] - Well, not irreversible in the sense that the rest of the country would let him get away with it, of course. (Civil War 2.0, anyone?)

I say with no exaggeration whatsoever that anyone and everyone who uses the Internet in any way for any reason needs to watch this video.

Also, visit the following page, click the "+ Express" link, and leave a comment: http://www.gofccyourself.com/

Now, that should redirect you to the following: https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/search/proceedings?q=name:((17-108%29%29

If it does not, just use the second link.

I recently sent messages via their websites to Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr and to House Representative Mark Walker concerning the Trump FCC attempt to destroy Net Neutrality, undoing the good work that President Obama had put into place supporting it.

This is the response I received from Senator Tillis:


Stupid bullshit behind cut )



In other words, to put it bluntly, Senator Tillis has opted to be a part of the problem, rather than the solution. I don't know why I was expecting otherwise. As such, as I did in the past, I will be voting against him again the next time he is up for reelection in 2020.

"This is an all-hands-on-deck moment for every American."

As I said on Facebook: We've long known that this was coming, but that doesn't make the ass it sucks any less encrusted.

Let me just say this, yet again: Fuck Donald Trump. Fuck all of Donald Trump's lickspittles. Fuck everyone who still supports Donald Trump even a little bit or who still think he's somehow doing a good job.

And, most importantly in this case, fuck anyone and everyone who is benefiting in any way from this destruction of net neutrality.

Russian-Owned LiveJournal Bans Political Talk, Adds Risk of Spying

This will be my final LJ post. Once I've exported my LJ entries out to xml or whatever (assuming I even end up bothering with that) Already exported all my entries to XML, and while it was tedious as all hell, it was nowhere near as difficult or time consuming as I thought it would be (though apparently some things will be lost in the export, like pretty much any lj-embed, i.e. Youtube videos, etc., which is bull fucking shit, but oh well), I will be deleting this journal I will probably just leave this here until it gets deleted on its own, unless I am given a more compelling reason to go ahead and delete it myself, though once I migrate everything that I can to a new site, wherever that may be, I'll probably never use or even look at this one again, and will likely just go ahead and delete it at that time.

(EDIT) And I've already started the import process to Dreamwidth. (/EDIT)

I appreciate Pat's attempt to be as diplomatic as possible, but I fully agree with Ian on this issue, as is usually the case.

For the record, and for what it's worth, watching the above video is the first time I've ever heard of the game in question or that JonTron had anything to do with it. My interest remains near to zero, either way (and I similarly have never played nor had much interest in playing Banjo-Kazooie games either), but I have to say that if the company making the game is willing to piss off a bunch of Irredeemably Toxic Shithole-types and Trumpster fires by removing JonTron from the game, then more power to them.

Also, I think it's another relevant opportunity to post this again:
