“School books about Martin Luther King Jr. are too “divisive,” claims a conservative group at the center of a Tennessee book ban battle. A story about the astronomer Galileo Galilei is “anti-church.” A picture book about seahorses is too sexy.

Conservatives are the original cancel culture.

“The court papers, which were initially filed late last week as a motion in a defamation lawsuit brought against the campaign and others by a former Dominion employee, Eric Coomer, contain evidence that officials in the Trump campaign were aware early on that many of the claims against the companies were baseless.

The Retro Gaming Market Is Being Exposed…


….

“This week massive questions are being raised at companies that grade video games such as Wata, and sites that deal with auctioning these games off for massive prices. Are they working together in pricing out the average gamer from the retro world? Let’s try and find out! Thanks for watching!”

I stay off of eBay because of this sort of thing.

I’ve encountered enough of these sorts of “auctions”, where it seems “dead” [as in, nobody is placing bids]…the current amount is an enticing bargain…and yet, moments after you place your own bid, you’ve suddenly been “outbid” by another person…and if you outbid them, you’re bid is quickly rendered obsolete, again, and again, and again…

…You just know that someone is setting out there, watching this “auction” like a hawk, with no personal intention of buying the item…they just want to keep pushing the “winning bid” up…or, more to the point, forcing you to pay as much for the item as they can get out of you [if you honestly want it that bad].

It’s an unethical, dubious scam.

I’d rather just buy from an ethical dealer at fair market value, than screw around with this sort of BS.

Unhinged Man THREATENS Doctor Over Unproven COVID Treatment…

“Like other medical workers in her state, Carvalho is exhausted and exasperated,” BuzzFeed News’ David Mack writes. “Idaho currently has the lowest vaccination rate in the country, and the number of vaccine doses administered hasn’t been climbing significantly — but infections have. As of Saturday, there were 686 patients hospitalized in the state with COVID, 180 of them in ICUs. That’s hundreds more than what flooded hospitals during the previous surge in December 2020, before safe and effective vaccines were widely available.”

It should be said…”sex trafficking” is legally defined so broadly, that what people get convicted over may not be the very worst things you might be inclined to imagine. I just thought this should be understood. Legal terminologies often make things sound very bad, regardless of the nature of whatever is being prosecuted.
