In the midst of all this naked racism and the popularity of its great Republican purveyor, sheesh…have you read Molly Ball’s piece in The Atlantic? This is sad.
“I remember seeing Muslims around the world celebrating after 9/11,” says Chip Matthews, a 63-year-old retired carpentry teacher in glasses with tinted lenses. So what if it was the Mideast and not New Jersey? “The basic point, I think, is true,” he says…
Barnhill, the man with the “balls” button, says, “Like he says, people have got to abide by the law. And unfortunately, a lot of minorities don’t.”
Donald is tapping into the worse angels of our nature.
“I’m against the anchor babies, and I’m against the Muslims,” says Kathy Parker, a tiny former elementary-school teacher with gold hoop earrings. “We can’t have churches in their countries—why should they have mosques in ours? He is the only one with the guts to speak out and say it.”
This Kathy person is essentially an anti-American. An anti-Constitutionalist. Anyway, in the midst of all this sinister stupidity I’m thankful today for the benign version.
Google deems Bernie Sanders’ economic plan a ‘phishing scam’
Over at Rev. Moon’s Washington Times, political reporter Stephen Dinan has got the Bernie Sanders campaign backed into a corner. The lede:
Democratic presidential hopeful Bernard Sanders’ economic plan triggered Gmail’s “phishing scam” antenna, with the mail system saying the senator’s liberal campaign promises — including lower prescription drug prices and free college for all — sound like frauds.
Forget the ‘who what when where’ of muck-raking journalism. All you need to do to break the next Watergate scandal is click a link in your e-mail and then watch what your computer does next.
“Be careful with this message. It contains content that’s typically used to steal personal information,” Gmail said in a bright red warning box that appeared at the top of a message sent by Mr. Sanders’ campaign Friday, laying out his “Agenda for Working Families.”
Is this Dinan good, or what? Most the rest of us would’ve started slapping our monitors, but he knew better. The Google is seeing right through your facade, Senator.
“A regression in the spam filter’s machine learning framework was determined to be the root cause. The issue affected only a very small percentage of the overall email received by Gmail and it has now been resolved,” the representative said.
Oops. That’s not it.
Ira Winkler, president of Secure Mentem and a cybersecurity specialist, said the campaign likely triggered Gmail’s filters because it included phrases that spammers use to try to sell prescription drugs and by offering things free of charge — in this case, the promise to pay for education at public colleges and universities.
There. THAT’S it. The corruption of debt-free education – whew, good thing Google caught it. Here’s the real-life screenshot Dinan provided:
So, you see? He wasn’t lying. This really did happen in his e-mail, the way he said it did. Meanwhile, after clicking on his SandersScam post, the multi-tentacled Moonie Times opened up three new browser windows in my box (not tabs – windows), including an offer to attend one of those ‘Rich Uncle, Poor Uncle’ seminars, which of course is in no way a scam. As is nothing and no one remotely associated with the Rev. Moon.
