The NRA being controlled by Russia is something to contemplate. Every mass killing with automatic weapons is an attack on US by Russia. It’s a shooting war, not with Russian soldiers, or drones even, with human American proxies.

GOP State Rep. Flashed His Gun In Dem’s Office, Where Weapons Are Banned

1 Comment

Wisconsin state Rep. Shae Sortwell (R) flashed his gun in the office of a Democratic lawmaker who had banned firearms in the space, according to a Thursday Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report.

Sortwell entered Rep. Shelia Stubbs (D)’s office around early March to discuss legislation for barbers’ licenses with her aide, Savion Castro.

The Republican lawmaker then shifted the conversation to Stubbs’ office sign that banned weapons, telling Castro that the sign was silly and that people should stop being afraid of guns.

Castro says that’s when Sortwell pulled back his coat to show him his handgun.

Assembly Chief Clerk Patrick Fuller spoke to Sortwell about the incident at legislative leaders’ request.

Stubbs told the Sentinel Journal that Sortwell has yet to apologize.

“I was shocked I would have a colleague in this Capitol intentionally demonstrate behavior that is just unacceptable — should be unacceptable — to anyone in this Capitol,” she said.

Emails Show Facebook Is Well Aware That Tracking Contacts Is Creepy

1 Comment

Kashmir Hill, writing for Gizmodo:

Then a man named Yul Kwon came to the rescue saying that the growth team had come up with a solution! Thanks to poor Android permission design at the time, there was a way to update the Facebook app to get “Read Call Log” permission without actually asking for it. “Based on their initial testing, it seems that this would allow us to upgrade users without subjecting them to an Android permissions dialog at all,” Kwon is quoted. “It would still be a breaking change, so users would have to click to upgrade, but no permissions dialog screen. They’re trying to finish testing by tomorrow to see if the behavior holds true across different versions of Android.”

Oh yay! Facebook could suck more data from users without scaring them by telling them it was doing it! This is a little surprising coming from Yul Kwon because he is Facebook’s chief ‘privacy sherpa,’ who is supposed to make sure that new products coming out of Facebook are privacy-compliant. I know because I profiled him, in a piece that happened to come out the same day as this email was sent. A member of his team told me their job was to make sure that the things they’re working on “not show up on the front page of the New York Times” because of a privacy blow-up. And I guess that was technically true, though it would be more reassuring if they tried to make sure Facebook didn’t do the creepy things that led to privacy blow-ups rather than keeping users from knowing about the creepy things.

The Facebook executives who approved this ought to be going to jail.

let the white washing of this man who started out so strongly and with such hope, who devolved into one of the sower of our current pollical mess. A man whom in his later years said many things and voted to undermine and tear apart this county
