More gov’t censorship and control over social media…

“The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.” - Malcolm X

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” - John F. Kennedy

“I and some colleagues came to the conclusion that as violence in this country was inevitable, it would be wrong and unrealistic for African leaders to continue preaching peace and non-violence at a time when the government met our peaceful demands with force. It was only when all else had failed, when all channels of peaceful protest had been barred to us, that the decision was made to embark on violent forms of political struggle.” - Nelson Mandela

jimmydoreisalefty,

Thanks for the write up!

IMO, in general, the more important policy would be to protect our data from domestic companies and gov’ts, as regular citizens.

Our data being collected from domestic companies and gov’t agencies infringes on our rights, while also being a closer threat than foreign gov’ts, lookingat this from regular citizens view.

Gov’t, contractors, and military personnel already have their own way of protecting themselves from foreign countries. Using secure devices and connections, while following their own policies.

In the end, it seems to be pointing toward Tiktok Ban so not sure how well this will go.

jimmydoreisalefty,

Ah, thanks for explaining your point of view!

I see the gov’t and domestic companies being a way bigger threat than foriegn gov’ts and companies.

Our gov’t has way more control on our media and what we see and hear.

Propaganda from your own gov’t is a much bigger deal. Once you start criticizing and questioning why the status quo has not changed over the last many decades/half century.

This being: more endless wars, more bailouts required for banks, more policing, and more medical debt, more mental health problems, more student debt, and it continues…

All while people are not experiencing an improvement in their day to day lives, it seems.

All in all, I may be in the minority, when it comes to this topic; when talking about the issues that are caused by all of these systematic problems we will continue to face in the future.

Stay hopeful and keep learning!

jimmydoreisalefty,

Ah, humor, thanks for trying to make this bleak topic a bit more enjoyable with some comedy!

The Playdate handheld is a year old and now has over 400 games for it. Now that I’ve lived with it for a year, has my opinion changed? And what are some of the good new games for it?

Short Summary

  1. Metal Jesus reviews the Playdate handheld, highlighting its unique design with over 400 games, an analog crank for gameplay, a black and white screen, and high build quality.
  2. The device’s price has increased from $180 to $200.
  3. A recent OS update introduced a game catalog for easier access to curated games.
  4. Showcased games include “Grand Tour Legends,” a cycling game utilizing the crank for pedaling and energy management.
  5. Other games mentioned are “Skew,” combining elements of Star Wars’ Trench Run with Flappy Bird, and “Real Steel,” where players control a thief collecting loot while avoiding traps.
  6. “The Botanist” is a Sci-Fi visual novel with interactive sections and 3D effects, while “Carve Junior” offers complex controls in a snowboarding game.
  7. “Legend of Etag” is described as an old-school Dungeon Crawler with grid-based movement and real-time combat.
  8. “Crunky” is a simple yet addictive game focusing on left or right movement to collect points and survive.
  9. “Fusion” involves managing a fusion reactor by strategically combining numbers to control objects in a chamber.
  10. The speaker appreciates the Playdate’s storage capacity and simplicity but hopes for a backlit screen in future versions, viewing it as a niche product for those seeking a unique gaming experience.

Nice to see coverage on this, Sabby Sabs has been talking about this for a good amount of time.

Is Trump Gaining Black Voters? [31:18 | Apr 15 2024 | Sabby Sabs]

Not to forget to mention some of the support from HBCUs Trump may recieve.

She mentions article below early on in 31min video on black support:

Biden losing support among Black voters in swing states: Survey [Lauren Sforza | 04/11/24 | The Hill]

thehill.com/…/4587742-biden-losing-support-among-…


For some, the conflagration 6,000 miles away has already changed their vote, edging out domestic concerns such as the economy, inflation and crime. Others say that the war in the Middle East, which has already cost thousands of lives and has a region on the brink of famine, mirrors other tragedies afflicting people of color — and that Biden’s support for what they see as a moral disaster should have consequences at the ballot box.

Where these voters ultimately land could play an outsize role in who occupies the White House next year. Pennsylvania is one of a handful of battleground states that both Republicans and Democrats see as pivotal to winning the presidency. In 2020, Biden won the state by just over 80,000 votes, including a 4-to-1 ratio in heavily Black Philadelphia. But there are signs that the coalition that elected him is fragmenting.

But as the Gaza war has raged on, Biden and other Democrats have faced protesters at virtually all of their public events, over the Palestinian death toll. In Scranton on Tuesday, after Biden gave a campaign speech on tax policy, the president’s motorcade was met by protesters chanting, “Biden Biden, you can’t hide. We charge you with genocide,” and “Welcome home, Scranton Joe — make sure Gazans have a home also.” Demonstrators also shouted at Biden as he visited his childhood home.

About 9 in 10 Black voters in Pennsylvania and other key states picked Biden over Trump in 2020, according to exit polls and comparable surveys, but a March Wall Street Journal poll of voters in seven swing states found that 68 percent of Black registered voters would “definitely” or “probably” vote for Biden in the 2024 election, while 20 percent said they were likely to vote for Trump. Numerous national and state polls this year have found similar results.

In 2015, she and other founding members of Black Lives Matter issued a statement of solidarity with Palestinians. “We don’t have to take a lesser-of-two-evils approach,” Abdullah said. “Lesser of two evils is still evil.”

The workers include parade performers, character actors and support staff at Disneyland and an adjacent theme park, Disney California Adventure. More than two-thirds of roughly 1,700 eligible workers signed the petition to seek an election through the National Labor Relations Board, the workers said, noting that a vote will likely be held in May or June,

Most of the more than 35,000 workers at the Disneyland Resort, which includes the theme parks, already have unions. Parade and character workers announced their plans to unionize in February under Actors’ Equity Association, which represents theatrical performers at Disney’s Florida theme parks.

Union membership has been on a decades-long decline in the United States, but organizations have seen growing public support in recent years amid high-profile contract negotiations involving Hollywood studios and Las Vegas hotels. The NLRB, which protects workers’ right to organize, reported more than 2,500 filings for union representation during the 2023 fiscal year, which was the highest number in eight years.

In California, Disney’s cleaning crews, food service workers, pyrotechnic specialists and security staff are already unionized. The company has faced allegations in recent years of not paying workers a livable wage for Southern California, despite raking in profits. Wage issues have even wound up in the courts.

Parade performers and character actors earn a base pay of $24.15 an hour, with premiums for different roles that can vary widely, workers said. Until January, the base pay was $20 an hour.

Do you take pictures with GPS tags on?

Hiya, so quickly wondering wether you have enabled this or not. Obviously it’s not great for privacy, but it also seems very nice to have for image cloud solutions, so that images can be sorted based on location. Are there any good solutions for this? I’d like have it enabled, but also afraid of sharing images with sensitive...

jimmydoreisalefty,

Thanks for reminder!

jimmydoreisalefty,

Yes, I don’t think some people on this community care as much, when it comes to location sharing with cell phone manufacturer and apks that have access to that data.

Not fully off grid all the time.
