Ruha Benjamin on Race After Technology

Along with my recent theme of #Crime and feckless #Punishment methods we use in the #USA, this episode of #FAIR's radio show #CounterSpin brought together #Technology, #AI algorithms and the erroneous application of #Justice for percieved crimes and deviations from rules. Late in the show (c. 20 minutes) Ruha states and exemplar exposing the #Racism inherent in the design of #Information #Systems used to "fight crime".

This is not a new or #BreakingNews story, but it is something worth repeating until we get our heads out of our asses. A sweet point to listen for in Part II is where they #GiveTheGameAway on the early version of #RudyGiuliani when it wasn't known what a #ShitHead stooge he is.

'Kochland': How The Koch Brothers Changed U.S. Corporate And Political Power

If you have wondered why #America seems so much like a #Monarchy now, this podcast has your answer. "Spoiler", it is a monarchy.
It's hiding behind a for-profit facade of #Political #Theater. The #Koch's own all of us and their #Religion is the #AynRand #Distopia for all but the ultra-wealthy.

@Michael Rupp "Parasites" and "bacteria" only contrast in the parlance of clinical labs where "parasites" tend to denote ...single- or many-celled animals in your digestive tract evidenced through the analysis of feces. Koch's bacillus is definitely not an animal and definitely a bacterium.

What I don't understand is what prompted your question in the context.
I've heard of parasites that have the property of making the host change behavior in a way that benefits the parasite. Like a cat has a parasite present in it's fecal matter that if a rodent gets exposed will become sexually attracted to cat's who eat the rodent and the cycle of the parasites life continues. I might have that wrong. 8(

e.g. the Koch parasite has convinced people with little power to give more power to the Koch's who are taking it away from them.

Ah, I see. In the case of cats that parasite is Toxoplasma gondii which is a single-celled eucaryote (or "animal"). OTOH fungi are known to to similar things to insects.

Just listening to this #Podcast from 2016, you know, from before #Trump was unleashed on the world with 5 infinity stones. This story reveals why plenty of #American's could reject #Hillary #Clinton.

Earth's sacrifice zones: the parts we can't save

An amazing but tragically terrible story on #ClimateChange from The Signal - ABC News (Australia). Do you live in an "expendable" place? Are you disenfranchised by the government that claims dominion over you and your land? If so, you are Royally-fucked. #HeatWave

How President Trump's Friends and Family Rebranded The Swamp - SOME MORE NEWS

So this is what #America's #GOP types have decided they wanted to defend. #Politics are heading to a new low in this world and that's a really low bar. It's like they all read the script for the #Taboo show and thought, 'Remember the good old days of the Dutch East India company?' #Republican's seem to have no soul.

What's this #taboo reference? After watching #MeetThePress this morning it was pretty obvious that they just want to throw the #racist accusation out over and over again instead of talking about the economy, Iran, or #patriotism.
It appears to me that the USA is harboring and/or defending many industries that treat people in ways that the Dutch East India company was when England was harboring and/or defending them. The TV show titled Taboo took a trip into the way the world worked back then. It seems like right now we're regressing back into those ways of how the world worked. I'm not on team fuck all the other people I'll take whatever I want. It's just the morals I decided to live by.

I don't watch the MTP show. I'm not sure how that would relate to this initial post. Depending on what evidence you look at and what your bias is, you could definitely see a lot of racism going on in the current Whitehouse. What's your definition of patriotism? That seems like such a red-herring to throw in this thread that it appears you need to get something off your chest about it.

LOL, sorry, maybe should have added emojis in there. Sometimes I do forget that email, text, posts are not a form of communication but rather just a way to exchange ideas. So, no, I wasn't angry. 😀 And it was a "generalization" that I was using when I wrote "nobody". For example, it's all over the news, Liberal talking points, etc about Trump's "concentration camps". Except "nobody" talked about them when Obama was President. Now, as you note, it really isn't "nobody" as some very few did. However, when you look at those bringing up the "concentration camps" subject, I'd be fairly certain not a single one of them ever brought it up under Obama. Hence, "nobody". Here's a link about generalizations and their usage.

Woa. #America has been shitty to people for a really long time. Stole back the 40 acres and a mule, AND paid former slave holders for the value of the formerly owned slaves! We were a Trump-style country for a long freaking time.

#GDP #Economy #HappinessIndex Economics News Podcast Politics
So true that quality is a better way to live! However, as it's measured, I don't think cheaper inputs to a product or service change the GDP. To avoid double counting they won't measure components made to become part of a final product that a consumer buys; they just measure the price the final product sells at. But, if cheaper inputs lower the final products price they will sell more units and thus raise the total GDP. Is that what you meant?


The theorybiz article has many of the items that I was thinking of, especially the increasing #scarcity. For example, the topsoil in the #USA is being depleted and is a positive in the GDP figures. Increasing the farming quality so that we have no net loss of topsoil should lead to the best possible results in whatever measure is used.

Death & Taxes

I've done my taxes since the only option was paper filing and hand-writing in the numbers. Until a few years ago, I thought the IRS was the problem. I know Accounting firms are the problem. I use https://www.freetaxusa.com/ now.
