Worth mentioning: AT&T has already throttled Facetime (competes with them). Verizon throttled Netflix and Youtube (again, they want cable TV customers). Comcast throttled bittorrent. This isn't a theoretical problem, and now we're saying it's O.K. for them to do it.
I'll never forget what your father did to me...... Forcing onto me, a fresh foreigner, debt enough to buy a house many times. Indenturing me to labor under beasts. I bear no grudge with you, but by your blood ties mayhaps you'll pay for your father's sins.
Not one major media outlet in the US has published a review of #PixarCoco written by a Latino film critic. As @REMEZCLA's film editor, I made it my duty to change that. I asked 4 Latino writers (+ myself) to review #Coco
At least 7000 Haitians fled to Canada (who ended their temp res program last year) for asylum because they were afraid this would happen. There's been resistance about welcoming them around the border and in Quebec.
We are FINALLY taking Marvin to the DMV tomorrow to get his ID. We had to FOIA the Social Security Admin for a document. I'm not kidding. It took four months. My vol just sent a receipt for the wheelchair accessible transportation: $130.
The Lifeline program was created by Regan to provide subsidies for phones and only just began to include internet access in 2016. Internet access isn't a luxury anymore, it should be regulated like a utility.
According to @AjitPaiFCC, low-income homes don't deserve subsidies for affordable #internet access. Scaling back #FCC Lifeline program will be devastating for families in search of economic opportunity & education. bit.ly/2A7qgDk
Wow, this is huge. NBC is developing an Asian family drama (not comedy!) featuring a Korean American family in a "Shakespearean battle for power." And the showrunners are Asian American! hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/nbc-…
Read a comment this morning stating that Maker culture is 80% male and had to laugh. Only if you discount the millions of women sewing, knitting, weaving, and more. But oh right, they're just "crafters." That artificial distinction enrages me. 😡
waiter: ma’am the mozzarella plate is meant for 4 people to share
me: we teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. we say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. you should aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you would threaten t
I spent election night last year watching an attorney for a political party try to run out the clock and prevent hospitalized voters from casting their ballots. It was quite something. huffingtonpost.com/entry/philadel…
POC don’t exist to be abused while a racist learns to not to be evil. Loving your mixed family doesn’t mean you’re not also still harming them or others like them. Slavers had mixed kids & still beat & sold them others w/no problems.
Is @RalphGoodale now on rewind? Over a year ago he promised 🇨🇦 a redress system in 18 months. Now it’s wait for Bill C-59 which takes +2 years according to @liberal_party MPs.
Did someone press rewind? Can we press forward? 🙃
These numbers are stark. GOP precincts with no HoD dem challenger: no #vagov dem vote increase. GOP precincts *with* an HoD dem challenger: 20% #vagov dem vote increase. What's the opposite of coattails.
Today I learned that if you are wearing a panty liner that gives the TSA carte blanche to push their fingers up into your groin and ass. Their machines are now calibrated to alarm for "feminine hygiene products."
