Israel presents: Detention without trial for Arabs only
  • As with our dentention centers on the US/Mexico border, we'll only see select portions of this after they've "addressed the issues" innate to putting people in holding facilities.

  • I have long held a theory that so much of the superficial orthopraxy demanded by various activist movements is intentional and designed to disrupt or retard actual action.

  • How can we best get involved and support the cause?

  • Majority of Hispanics Support Mass Deportations
  • With over a century of vocabulary and terminology around these kind of social issues, it does get confusing in a hurry. That's why I try to stick to plain language and popular terms whenever possible.

  • Majority of Hispanics Support Mass Deportations
  • Exactly. Everyone's on the list, eventually.

  • Also called Millenarianism, it refers to the belief that a major change/end of an age/apocalypse is inbound.

    A lot of folks felt this way when the year 1999 rolled around and the "new millennium" began. For some it only got worse after September 11th 2001.

  • That may in part be an intended consequence. A permanent underclass benefits all mainstream politics in the US.

  • Majority of Hispanics Support Mass Deportations
  • American politics have become a death cult. Millennialism had a much deeper impact on this country than I recognized at the time.

  • Majority of Hispanics Support Mass Deportations
  • The issue is that once the government has the infrastructure and networks to round folks up en masse, they can round groups of folk up en masse. That net will never be precise, so plenty of folks will get pulled in who shouldn't. That net can also be directed where-ever the powers that be decide, which is a real threat to liberty and justice for all.

    And that's before we get to the part the ethics and issues behind our immigration policy in the US.

    As a capable but lazy user, how much would switching to Arch frustrate me?
  • As a Mint user who just starting test-driving Arch: once you get through the installation the switch isn't at all difficult. Now,t hat having been said, the installation can have some frustrating moments depending on how you go about it.

  • WireShark on Linux Mint?
  • Ah, thank you!

  • WireShark on Linux Mint?
  • "Good" is such a strong word. There's a lot to take in here so any advice as to where to start would be appreciated!

  • Just figured out how to run it with root privileges, so the big thing is down. Thank you for responding!

    Just installed it via package manager and I'm trying to get my brain around it. Anyone out there have any experience or tips for running WireShark on Linux Mint? Thanks so much!

    US "underprepared" for bird flu outbreak, epidemiologists warn

    In short we've learned nothing, done nothing, and will be caught flat again. If you're not ready, get ready, because no one is coming to save you.

    US "underprepared" for bird flu outbreak, epidemiologists warn

    The time to prepare for the next pandemic is now. We may not see a massive health risk to humans per se, but disruptions in our food systems, our supply chains, and our ability to gather in groups may be inbound.

    Just in time for an election!

    FTC Warns Car Makers Regarding Privacy

    The regulator is warning OEMs to respect data privacy or it will get mad.

    Connected cars’ illegal data collection and use now on FTC’s “radar”

    It's not quite enough for me, personally, but this is a small step in the right direction.

    I think that the real "down near the metal" solution is to own a dumb car, but those are getting thin on the ground . . .

    Farmers Hiding Bird Flu Cases in Cattle from the FedGov

    Dairy farmers don’t trust the federal government to prioritize their economic needs and have become increasingly polarized following the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Farmers Are Hiding Likely Bird Flu Cases in Cows From the Federal Government

    This has a real "hide the zombie bite from your friends" feel to it, albeit on a much grander scale.

    Farmers Are Hiding Likely Bird Flu Cases in Cows From the Federal Government

    Folks with cattle are likely hiding bird flu cases from the fedgov. I suspect this will be used as a justification for expanded action against the disease.

    Anyone familiar with the "No Trace Project"?

    www.notrace.how No Trace Project

    No trace, no case. A collection of tools to help anarchists and other rebels understand the capabilities of their enemies, undermine surveillance efforts, and ultimately act without getting caught.

    I've just been clued into this and I'd like to know if anyone can give me an idea of the quality of the information contained therein. Thanks in advance--I hope you're well today!

    Title says it all--a fellow bricoleur just turned me on to the No Trace Project and I'm curious to know if anyone else here has looked into it and the quality of the information therein. Thanks in advance!

    Metro South Trash Cam: A Tangible Manifestation of the Contemporary Condition

    www.oregonmetro.gov Metro South trash cam

    Watch garbage flowing in and out of Metro's transfer station in Oregon City, just south of Portland.

    It's hard for me to explain in words how disturbing I find this. Here's a manifestation of how we as a culture see "stuff" and how we relate to the material world.

    Tell me about your projects?

    I've been slowly converting all of my outdoor lighting to solar and adding more rain barrels for my garden. This got me thinking--what are the rest of you working on? I'd love to see and hear about your projects if you feel like sharing them.

    Thanks in advance, I hope you're all having a wonderful day!
