    Pres. Trump has now targeted *every* senior investigator who has touched the Russia probe.

    Evidence shows the memo battle is about Rosenstein, not FISA warrants — he and Mueller are the only people left:

    Reminder that NYT published 21 columns on the threat of political correctness culture on campus in the last 18 months. To my knowledge, zero on the rapid increase in white supremacist organizing on campuses.

    Ford wants to patent a driverless police car that ambushes lawbreakers using artificial intelligence
    By Peter Holley

    Imagine a police car that issues tickets without even pulling you over.
    What if the same car could use artificial intelligence to find good hiding spots to catch traffic violators and identify drivers by scanning license plates, tapping into surveillance cameras and wirelessly accessing government records?

    What if a police officer tapping on your car window asking for your license and registration became a relic of transportation’s past?

    The details may sound far-fetched, as if they belong in the science-fiction action flick “Demolition Man” or a new dystopian novel inspired by Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World,” but these scenarios are grounded in a potential reality. They come from a patent developed by Ford and being reviewed by the U.S. government to create autonomous police cars. Ford’s patent application was published this month.

    Monopoly Now Wants You to Cheat—Just Like Real Capitalists
    America’s favorite board game is reflecting the economy we live in.

    • Ametia says:

      Eighty percent of seats on airplanes are sold by just four airlines. CVS and Walgreens have a virtual lock on the drugstore and pharmacy business. A private equity firm in Brazil controls roughly half of the U.S. beer market. The chemical giant Monsanto is able to dictate when and how farmers plant its seeds. Google and Facebook control nearly 75 percent of the $73 billion market in digital advertising.

      How did we get here though? How did we move from the New Deal economy, which aimed to protect small businesses and empower workers, to a low-wage economy motivated by monopoly capitalism?

      During the fight against big businesses, Franklin Delano Roosevelt made clear that cutthroat competition needed to be curtailed by strong antitrust laws. He labelled business and financial monopolies as “the old enemies of peace”—and built up countervailing powers like labor unions and regulations to stop the concentration of power into the few’s hands. FDR was considered a traitor to his class and a champion of the forgotten men and women of America.
