White County Inmates Given Reduced Jail Time If They Get A Vasectomy - NewsChannel 5 Nashville ( http://tinyurl.com/y9tjez24 )

Quote
Inmates in White County, Tennessee have been given credit for their jail time if they voluntarily agree to have a vasectomy or birth control implant, a popular new program that is being called “unconstitutional” by the ACLU.
 
On May 15, 2017 General Sessions Judge Sam Benningfield signed a standing order that allows inmates to receive 30 days credit toward jail time if they undergo a birth control procedure.

Russian censorship law bans proxies and VPNs
It's also requiring that you link your phone number to chat apps.


Quote
President Putin has signed a law that, as of November 1st, bans technology which lets you access banned websites, including virtual private networks and proxies. Internet providers will have to block websites hosting these tools. The measure is ostensibly meant to curb extremist content, but that's just pretext -- this is really about preventing Russians from seeing content that might be critical of Putin, not to mention communicating in secret.

Well, lets be honest here, VPNs are going to be banned for people not hacking on behalf of the Russian state.

There will be loopholes, and people will find them.  Without a Great Firewall of China style system, you can only do so much.

“Do you worry 100 years from now someone’s going to try to take that memorial down like they’re trying to remake our memorials today?” Kilmeade asked Zinke, who is attending a ceremony in Shanksville on Monday.

“Well I’m one that believes that, you know, we should learn from history," Zinke replied. "And I think our monuments are part of our country’s history. We can learn from it.

“Since we don’t put up statues of Jesus, everyone’s going to fall morally short. And I think reflecting on our history, both good and bad, is a powerful statement and part of our DNA.”

If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

Ted Cruz likes twitter porn

http://www.newsweek.com/ted-cruz-twitter-porn-clip-fervent-speculation-ensues-663267

Huh, even presidential almost-nominees subject themselves to pornographic mediocrity.
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature. If you're reading this, let the world know tha

You can't get out backward.  You have to go forward to go back.. better press on! - Willie Wonka, PBUH

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

I think society's optimal response to this kind of bullshit is to call their bluff and instead of taking the statues down start putting up commemorative statues of people who either deserted and/or stole supplies from the confederate army because that's history too, and it's worth commemorating. (on a similar note we also need statues of axis deserters)

Also someone needs to spin the last part as Zinke promoting idolatry

I feel weird that I'd rather have Luthe Strange in office than Ray Moore, in that I'm agreeing with Trump.


Or is having an unhinged assbat in the senate somehow better than a guy that will rubber stamp Trump's whims?

What does Trump find so objectionable about Moore?  I mean, his views aren't that far from Trump's, if he's posting Britain First videos.
