It won't work. What makes drunk driving different from any other crime that kills a parent. Just because the people who commit those crimes are more like to have money than say a burglar or mugger that kills someone, is not going to hold up in court. That's the sort of stuff that civil suits are for. You can sue for wrongful death regardless of the outcome of the court trial, though a guilty verdict does help.

Began looking into a new smartphone and decided to look up which company was most ethical. Some are rated as 54% while my phone is listed as 38% samsung. Turns out I had to do some more digging and some of the high numbers for some were what I would consider fluff, not all categories weighed equally, while mine ended up being one of the most ethical in terms of what I care about. I wish they didn't make political contributions but the mostly gave to my party and I wish they had better human rights and weren't in the arms industry but they do openly support the ability to unionize and have an open sourcing of materials, as well as a certified eco-lable. How that translates is another question. I also don't care if my phone is made by nuclear power or not. So for me and what I care about, Samsung is the best company. In other words, there is no way to buy anything completely ethically in a capitalist economy.

I remember Lee Camp mentioned it on Redacted Tonight. He said that was the real reason why Trump hated the company.
Skeptical of Lee Camp, I'm also not thrilled about supporting the CCP. But I will continue to look, I do like worker owned companies, sadly the CCP has an outsized power level in the nation. Vietnam is the communist nation I think has the most free and fair elections in it, and power to the workers. That said I do have a dragon tablet that is easily repairable and already supports the CCP if China wanted to spy on me they easily could do so, so whatever.



Two windmills are standing in a field and one asks the other, "what kind of music do you like?"

The other says, "I’m a big metal fan."

Everyone knows I would take a knee with Colin Kaepernick any day as a man who served 20 years & 28 days in the US Navy during war & peace!

I’ll add to it my shirt I’m sporting today…

The new strain of concern is officially named Omicron, Mask up, wash your hands, reduce contact, get into practice now. Until they find out if it can get around vaccines, act as if it can. We have been given warnings and this was completely preventable if we had supplied vaccines to the entire world. Instead we sat on our hands and let it mutate just like all the scientists were warning.


New England viewed their farmers with corn and pumpkins as superior to slavers with their lavish foods grown by slave labor, and so the pumpkin became a symbol of abolition and Thanksgiving was a New England holiday as early as 1830.

The Thanksgiving pumpkin pie is now a symbol for sweet, sweet national unity. But it was once a hotly contested battleground in America’s original culture war. In the 1800s, the humble pumpkin became a totem of the fight to abolish slavery in America. bit.ly/3nXKnLX






I thought memory fragmentation was only really solved by compacting garbage collectors like in JVM and .NET CLR but there are alternate memory allocators for C/C++ that accomplish this too! Interesting! #programming blog.cloudflare.com/the-effect-of-…

I went to 'the shuttlecock of the Confederacy' to hear what people there thought about critical race theory. I heard about equity instead. businessinsider.com/critical-race-… #SmartNews

I see the morons that infest this country are outraged over more pointless and non life threatening bollocks. Meanwhile the Tories are ramping up privatisation of the NHS, well, everything and surrendering our country to private equity firms. But let's worry about #SexNotGender

We lost 3,300 people on 9/11. As a result we passed the most draconian infringement on the Bill of Rights (Patriot Act). Total gun deaths is 38,000 per year. Today, we're losing 14,000 per week to Covid.

NOTE: There's a brain fart typo in the original post. It should read 14,000 per week, not per day. I've corrected it, but I don't think edits propagate into the fediverse. The good thing is that the error makes no difference in terms of the point I was making.
