Linkee-poo Sunday

"'A 10% increase in state gun ownership [in a state] was associated with a significant 35.1% higher rate of mass shootings,' the study said." Shocked, shocked I am… I'm sure we'll hear how the methodology was wrong, or they used the wrong statistics or something by the end of the weekend. (Grokked from Michele)

"Trump cheered Patriots to Super Bowl victory with founder of spa where Kraft was busted." Oopsie. Just a reminder that Trump has also been implicated in the sex parties Epstein threw. (Grokked from Joy Reid)

"In response, the U.S. Army added a disclaimer to the call for white papers in a move first spotted by news website Defense One. Without modifying any of the original wording, the Army simply added a note that explains Defense Department policy hasn’t changed. Fully autonomous American killing machines still aren’t allowed to go around murdering people willy nilly. There are rules—or policies, at least. And their robots will follow those policies." (Grokked from Robert J Bennett)

What could be the problem is the president goes to his club and hobnobs with his rich friends? Eventually someone will take advantage of that. Like selling access to the president and his family. (Grokked from Kathryn Cramer)

"Erik Prince, the former head of Blackwater and brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, has acknowledged that he was present at a key 2016 Trump Tower meeting… Prince previously testified under oath to the House Intelligence Committee on Nov. 30, 2017, saying at the time that he had 'no official' or 'really unofficial role' in the Trump campaign and his only involvement in helping was attending fundraisers and placing yard signs." (Grokked from Jim Wright)

Well, that didn't last long. "White House communications director Bill Shine is resigning his position, the Trump administration announced Friday."
