Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Linkee-poo AWOL

"The US Senate has voted to overturn Internet privacy rules introduced last year by the FCC – and to prevent the FCC from passing any further such rules in the future." Tell me that there is no difference between the parties again. That one never gets old. (Grokked form Dan)

"'It seems to be, and correct me if I’m wrong here, but virtually every case of voter fraud I can remember in my lifetime was committed by Democrats,' (Steven Curtis the former chairman of the Colorado Republican Party) told KLZ 560." Are you going to be surprised that he's the only one being prosecuted in Colorado for voter fraud during the 2016 election? If so, you haven't been paying attention. (Grokked from Fred Clark)

"In his second hastily called press briefing on Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) did little to quell a storm of speculation he kicked up hours earlier by divulging that the intelligence community 'incidentally collected' information about President Donald Trump and his staff during the transition… Nunes did offer a few new concrete specifics to reporters gathered outside the White House, where he had just briefed the President. These included a firm assertion that Trump’s own communications were caught up in intelligence community reports that were 'widely disseminated' among intelligence agencies—a claim he hedged on earlier this afternoon." Read that line about briefing the president. He hadn't even shared this with his committee first. Separation of powers my ass. That's straight up ass kissing in an attempt to curry favor. Jesus, people, there's an entire press corps in Washington DC watching what you do. Well, I guess he figured he couldn't just call the president, as that would probably be recorded. Oh, and our intelligence agencies acting on FISA warrants investigating foreign intelligence operations intercepted (legally) "Trump’s own communications." There's a whole shitload of dots to connect there.
