“Blood has become big business in the United States and there is no shortage of big pharma corporations ready to exploit America’s young and most vulnerable.

Oh yes…this is a very real thing in the USA. I do not remember a time, when you were not able to sell your own blood. You don’t get a lot of money for it…but you might get $100 a month, or something, if you can go back enough times over. It’s a lot of getting stuck by needles, though.

But, then…my knowledge of this comes from what I found out, decades ago…so, maybe they’re more generous with the money these days.

Russell Brand RESPONDS To Smear Pieces…

“Actor, comedian and podcaster Russell Brand has lately come under fire from the establishment press in his native England, labeled a “conspiracy theorist” who spreads misinformation and makes wild accusations without providing supporting evidence. Now Brand has used his platform to strike back, posting a video refuting the allegations against him and pointing out that two of his prominent critics in the press write for a paper called “The Independent,” 50 percent of which is owned by the Saudi Arabian government. So maybe not all that independent.

Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss Brand’s penchant for both open shirts and open dialogue.”

Twitter Bans Satirical Website For “Hateful” Trans Joke…

“The right-wing conservative satire site Babylon Bee was recently suspended on Twitter after posting a joke naming U. S. Assistant Secretary for Health Dr. Rachel Levine, who is a trans woman, “Man of the Year. The joke may be hacky and degrading, and a clearly failed attempt at “satire,” but that doesn’t mean a giant tech behemoth like Twitter should have exclusive power to ban anyone’s speech based on whatever the company’s algorithm and executives decide qualifies as “hateful.”

As Jimmy points out, this latest instance of censorship represents yet another step toward granting the tech industry a monopoly over deciding what speech is acceptable and allowed and what will be deemed unfit for public consumption. Is that what we want?”

Yes…That is the common practice for first “offenses” of the TOS…forced deletion of the post, and suspension of posting for twelve hours.

This is a process I was completely denied, for no apparent reason…over an “offense” that remains entirely unclear, as there was never any obvious or intended offense committed on my part…and the stooge responsible refuses to give any excuse for the extreme action.

This is just another example of twitter being stupid, with it’s own “authorities” busy comitting entirely useless and insane acts of disruption and hostility.

They’ve turned the place into a polarized echo chamber of hate, dehumanization and intolerance.

Thanks to feinmann!

“Maryana Naumova, a world powerlifting champion, responds to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s message to the Russian people.

Марьяна Наумова, чемпионка мира по пауэрлифтингу, отвечает на обращение Арнольда Шварценеггера к российскому народу.”

A very powerful response, for sure.

Here is the original video.
