Cancellation is a move I haven't seen called for and makes sense from both the individual level and for small businesses, the majority of small restaurants that closed will not be able to pay that often extortionate rent on their premises, and even when they come back they will be operating at half capacity or less if they enforce distance rules.

That makes me hate him slightly less, actually. Bc yeah, the thing the pausing of rent leads to is unpayable amounts of debt, esp bc a lot of jobs that were lost just aren't coming back.

It's alright, he'll back to his usual self in a few days, saying stuff like this:

Listen here Jack, I'm gonna set you straight. I'll only say this once so listen up, Fat. This virus isn't going anywhere. Let me repeat myself, this virus isn't going anywhere. Back in my day we didn't call it covid whatever; we called it the "Shanghai Shivers". OK, here's the deal, Slick. I used to know a guy, went by the name Cornflake Jackson. Ol' Cornflake used to play guitar down at the pool hall. He caught the Shanghai Shivers one year and let me tell you, if Cornflake Jackson says, "It ain't no thang" you can take that to the bank, Buckaroo. That's how I know you're full of shit. I'd punch your daughter straight in the mouth.

I mostly hate cringe, but I'm liking this.  Because it's fucking horrible.

Someone leaked a copy of Trump's dumbass social-media executive order about https://news.yahoo.com/looks-trumps-draft-executive-order-114822607.html

Yo I sincerely hope he breaks the Internet though. Just like the economy shut down for a few months. No new content on youtube, twitter, etc -- it would be great. "Everybody just read old posts until we get this sorted out."

also, the president of the united states getting banned from twitter should be on everybody's bingo card

Of course, that just means both FB and Twitter will be legally obligated to correct Trump's misleading posts on both platforms.

I'll probably come back around to bitter laughter/horrormirth later.

I still need to put together those bingo cards and it's on there now.

This looks like theater to me at this point I was digging through relevant Twitter threads and he doesn't even have the authority to make the FTC do at least one of the things he wants them to and sect. 230 isn't about freedom of speech directly.

One of my friends is a civil rights lawyer and I'll see if she has anything interesting to say.

I had difficulty following the draft, since I found it a melange of political rhetoric and actual directives.
However, two of its criticisms of social media were with respect to taking restrictive actions inconsistent with their terms-of-service, and providing inadequate notice of infractions.

Trump's recent tweet "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" was in violation of twitter's policies, and was flagged as such.  It seems to me that, should Trump post another inflammatory twit, then any decision by twitter to ban him would be entirely compliant with the draft executive order.

No, it’s most likely just the soul leeches turning over their shifts as the pupae become adults escaping into the ethereal field to torment the dreams of children, and their larvae prepare to roost in her spinal column again.
