Bleg: Getting out

With the way Google tracks everything and the way the want to ban anything that I like, like gun stuff, what other options are available? I mean, a full service solution for email, calendar, phone, everything. I’ve never cared for Apple products and don’t really dig how they treat their devices or customers. The windows phone and computer combo seems workable but its dearth of comparable apps available is limiting.

Is there anything I’m missing?

Excellent

Military.com:

The Pentagon recently released detailed guidance that allows U.S. military personnel to carry privately owned, concealed firearms on base, a move that the Army’s service chief argued against publicly.

“Arming and the Use of Force,” a Nov. 18 Defense Department directive approved by Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work, lays out the policy and standards that allow DoD personnel to carry firearms and employ deadly force while performing official duties.

If they can be trusted with guns on a battlefield, they can be trusted with them at work.

Things I didn’t know

You can make money and youtube. And, being owned by Google, they’re cutting that out if your videos are gun related.

A gun lawsuit to watch

At 16, a teen was committed to a mental facility because he was thought to be suicidal. At 16, obviously not an adult. At the age of 21, he went to buy a gun. He was denied and charged with lying on the form to purchase. He wants his gun rights restored and is suing.

When those states pass those Firearms Freedom laws . . .

The feds will still arrest and have you convicted:

Two Kansans face up to a decade in prison for making and selling silencers without registering them with the federal government or paying the special taxes. They say it’s allowed under state law. But a federal jury says it’s illegal.

A woman is suing a vibrator company because it’s companion app on her phone tracked personal data while she was, uhm, shebopping.

The future is stupid.

How do you draw it?

FullConceal sells what looks like a pretty derpy idea. Basically, cut the grip off a Glock, add a magazine holder to the front, and let’s make it an 80% receiver so there’s no FFL required. Have a look:

I get trying to make a gun more concealable but when you make it substantially less useful and effective, I don’t think that works.

Self-driving cars

I have one. Only not the kind you’re thinking of. Got the wife a new Earthfucker and it’s replete with all manner of features to assist the driver. Some of these features are pretty cool. Most of them are annoying. On the cool side is the back up camera graphic that can project where the vehicle will end up if you keep the steering wheel where it’s at. This has proven handy for parking the large thing in tight spots. It also has a light on the mirror that lights up if someone is to your left or right. This is also handy, since the large thing has tiny mirrors.

As to the annoying features, it has a mode it goes into for descending steep inclines. This will cause the vehicle to use a lower gear and brake on its own. It will also brake on its own if it senses you’re approaching something too quickly. And, the worst of all, it will beep and the seat will vibrate alerting you to all this. So, when you pull into your garage, all these damn things go off at once. Quite the nuisance. Fortunately, I was able to disable the vibrating and the beeping.

Not to be a fuddy duddy, but it’s the driver’s job to drive the car. Not the computer’s. I like all the features that provide me with information, such as the camera and lights when someone might be in the blind spot. But the actual driving of the vehicle is not something I want a computer to do.

More on fake news

Epitomizing everything about the internet, the study that said “fake news” beat “real news” turned out to be fake news. Meanwhile, the list of fake news sites includes among them sites that are not fake news but has opinions the professor doesn’t like.

The end of racism

I’ve said before that the term racism, like fascism, has lost any real meaning. Both terms are just tossed out at someone the left doesn’t like. You know, Trump is a racist and fascist. Bannon is a racist. Everyone is a racist who is not a lefty. So, the term has lost meaning to many. When I hear the accusation against someone, I usually roll my eyes. That’s not to say there isn’t real racism. But the accusation has lost meaning. Accusations of racism are like crying wolf, I agree.

Meanwhile, here’s some real racism with the added bonus of double standards and low expectations.

Gun registries are bad. Especially during the zombie apocalypse

Dunno who out there still watches The Walking Dead. But this week’s episode featured gun control. Spoiler alert.

Turns out the good guys kept an inventory of guns and who had them. A registry of guns, as it were. The bad guys found the registry and then took all the guns. They even knew there were guns missing because the registry told them. This strikes me as a bad idea in general. Even more so when it’s the end of the world.

Officer who shot Philando Castile will be charged

CBS News reports he’s charged with manslaughter:

Ramsey County Attorney John Choi said Wednesday that after investigating the police shooting death of Philando Castile, the prosecutor has decided to charge the officer who fired with second-degree manslaughter.

My conscience tells me that it would be wrong for me to ask a grand jury to make this decision when I know what needs to be done, Choi said.

He was shot sitting in his car and it was livestreamed on video. Castile had a carry permit. The officer shot seven times.

Mass murderer v. armed citizen

A man with a gun carry permit stopped another guy who was stabbing people. Good.

Life in the future

Facebook and Google will stop selling ads to fake news sites in an effort to clean up the internet. And, as asserted, because fake news allowed Trump to win. Whatever will CNN and MSNBC do. I kid. Sorta.

I really doubt facebook’s commitment to that. Because there’s a lot of that stuff that comes through the app by shares or ads. A while back, I used to be able to hover over the offending post and select “hide all from”. I did this for sites like GatewayPundit, WesternJournalism, Conservative National Enquirer*, Vox, sites that have Truth and Patriot in them, homeopathy, and many others I can’t recall. That feature is now limited and I assume it’s because these sites are paying for that.

Policing that should be your own responsibility.

The future is stupid.

* Seriously, guys, I’m not going to be an ad partner. Stop emailing.

Because they haven’t been up until now

The Paper of Making Up The Record is going to change and be all honest and stuff:

As we reflect on this weeks momentous result (Hillary losing despite their shilling – ed), and the months of reporting and polling that preceded it, we aim to rededicate ourselves to the fundamental mission of Times journalism. That is to report America and the world honestly, without fear or favor, striving always to understand and reflect all political perspectives and life experiences in the stories that we bring to you

Could have done that all along.
