15 April 1934 | A Dutch Jewish boy, Herman Ruzhaner, was born in The Hague.

In September 1943 he was deported to #Auschwitz and murdered in a gas chamber.

So, Microsoft is silently installing Copilot onto Windows Server 2022 systems and this is a disaster.

How can you push a tool that siphons data to a third party onto a security-critical system?

What privileges does it have upon install? Who thought this is a good idea? And most importantly, who needs this?

Historically speaking, Russian disinformation has weaponized all.

For example, one motivation behind Democrat support for the 1965 Voting Rights Act & other Great Society legislation was to thwart Russian efforts to use the disaffected & poverty-stricken during the Cold War.

You can't build NATO using moral high ground arguments, while keeping Jim Crow.

Thwart poverty, & you thwart fascist movements.

"Chain migration" is the BEST kind of immigration. You want people who move to you country to have a local network and support. You want new immigrants to bring their family, and the economic activity they generate and the value they add to communities to be in YOUR country.

I can't believe we let them use it like a slur. It's good and do it more.

What? They brought their elderly parents? That's good for US and for them (the new American we want to be successful and happy.) RIGHT?

If Melania was allowed to immigrate under an Einstein application, then followed by her parents, then that means the GOP are okay with chain migration.

Right?

If we look at the immigration pattern of Republicans, there will be innumerable examples of chain migration or siblings following a relative or children following a parent

It's so common, it went unremarked until the GOP were funded into making it into an issue by racist megadonors like Tim Mellon

The fact that every mainstream news site is now locked behind a paywall is a real boon for the spread of misinformation, because very few right wing sites have paywalls — which means their disinfo and propaganda can spread much more easily. Paywalls are a slow motion disaster.
