Re: Who will file the first Harris birther lawsuit?

Coming 'round the curve it's...: https://twitter.com/LarryEKlayman/status/1294831809432297472 I may (and did) mock Larry's capitalization. But I think there's a decent chance that the Tweet has all those capital letters because it's cut-and-paste from the section heading in a complaint he's draftin...

Well, on the bright side I've got more twitter followers now than I did during the Obama birther years. On the down side, I've got more twitter followers now than I did during the Obama birther years.

Re: Who will file the first Harris birther lawsuit?

I think Josh Hammer's decision to publish Eastman's article* stirred things up enough to make litigation much more likely. *Based on Hammer's twitter bio, Hammer is a former Claremont Institute alum. He did not disclose that Eastman is a former coworker - or, more likely, boss - anywhere that I've s...

Re: Vice President Timing/Picks - Joseph Biden 2020 - With Poll

I think Duckworth would make an outstanding VP, but I do think there's more of an issue there than with other candidates. She and Cruz are in the same position as far as I'm concerned. Because of the way the laws were written at the time of their births, while they acquired citizenship at birth, tha...

Re: Live Coverage - Protests In Multiple Cities Over George Floyd's Death -- Moving Toward The White House 5/29 Onward

I'm a bit behind in the thread - missed the first dozen or so pages, so apologies if this has been posted already - Greg Doucette has a twitter thread collating police brutality videos (and some related things) over the past week. The thread has gotten so long that it's broken the twitter threading,...

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

Yeah, if Trump's EO had been an anodyne statement that the CDA should not be viewed as covering editorial content, that would have been neutral enough to make his point while giving Twitter room to back off from moderating his tweets. The over-the-top EO, which went after a specific Twitter employee...

Re: Section 230 - Safe Harbor - Social Media Executive Political Theatre Order

I respectfully dissent.

Legally, it's toothless. Politically, provision after provision are timed to provide additional talking points through the election runup. The intent is both to stir the base and to ensure that the social media companies don't push back on outrageous claims.

Re: Section 230 - Safe Harbor - Social Media Executive Political Theatre Order

Legally, I think it's mostly meaningless, but getting to that conclusion may be expensive for the socials - especially if Barr decides to try to bring some deceptive practices actions.

As a further shattering of the norms of governance, it's pretty dramatic. Even by Trumpian standards.

I'm pretty thoroughly exhausted. Still trying to put my routines back together after getting my ass out of the UK on March 16th, which was, by my rough approximation, 3 years ago. Took a 3-day weekend from the PhD work, which means that I worked on 3 fewer days than normal. (Normal = 5 full days, pl...
