So much for free speech on X; Musk confirms new users must soon pay to post

The fee, likely $1, is aimed at stopping “relentless” bots, Musk said.

@arstechnica If it were to stop bots, it would require payment after a reasonable limit is reached.

The U.S. Army has deployed its new Typhon midrange ground-based missile launcher to the Indo-Pacific region for the first time, for joint military exercises in the northern Philippines — a move likely to unnerve China. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2024/04/16/asia-pacific/politics/us-midrange-missiles-philippines-china/

@thejapantimes This is a big deal and an escalation in the South China Sea. This provides anti-ship and land attack cruise missiles out to 1,000 miles and supersonic anti-ship missiles out to the extent of the Philippines economic zone. China’s move.

Runyan50,
@Runyan50@newsie.social avatar

@youronlyone @pilipinas @philippines @thejapantimes This only speculation, but it seems this placement in the Philippines keeps China on their back foot regarding the Spratleys. If they use real violence against a ship there, they will be attacked by both subsonic and supersonic missiles simultaneously. Those missiles could be fired by the Navy, but this ostentatious placement by the Army is a line in the sand so to speak. The Tomahawk’s ability to hit the Chinese mainland is a bonus.

Re: People posting fake eclipse photos to Facebook, I just posted this in a friend's thread: "The incredible thing about this thread is not only that the photo is an old Photoshop composite, but that so few people can bestir themselves to scroll up even one or two responses before posting either 'Beautiful!' or 'It's AI!' (It isn't.) If you think that's not why Trump is still in a position to be elected president, you underestimate the sheer power of laziness in great numbers."

Unfortunately, some Dems have sold out to corp. interests too. It's shameful:

Based on timing -it appears that the meeting was intended to thwart the antitrust efforts, at the behest of regulators’ corp. adversaries. The presence of both Massie & Correa is intended to signal that both parties have concerns about antitrust enforcers’ approach, particularly on the HSR proposed rule, sources explained. & the effort seeks to indoctrinate staff into that mindset.

Clarence Thomas ruled in favor of Citizens United. Harlan Crow and his family's political contributions then went up 862%. Then we later find out Thomas let Crow take him on lavish trips, buy his mom's house, and help fund his wife's conservative nonprofit. See how this works?

Historians 20 years from now, if there are allowed to be any, will smack their heads over and over about how screamingly obvious it was that Trump is a long-cultivated Russian asset who delivered just what the Kremlin wanted on a silver platter - including SCOTUS and Congress. And unless he's STOPPED and THROWN IN PRISON, the Putinized GOP will finish the job of finishing America. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2024/apr/03/trump-media-es-family-trust-2022-loans

    The price of asthma medication has soared in the U.S. over the past decade and a half.

    The pharmaceutical company Teva sells QVAR RediHaler, a corticosteroid inhaler, for $286 in the U.S.

    In Germany, Teva sells that same inhaler for $9.
