Ever wonder why the universally despised John McCain used to win his primaries and general election in AZ, term after term?

“After extensive consultation with experts to gather feedback on child protection initiatives we proposed last year, we are deepening our investment in the Communication Safety feature that we first made available in December 2021,” the company told WIRED in a statement. “We have further decided to not move forward with our previously proposed CSAM detection tool for iCloud Photos. Children can be protected without companies combing through personal data, and we will continue working with governments, child advocates, and other companies to help protect young people, preserve their right to privacy, and make the internet a safer place for children and for us all.”

Apple’s CSAM update comes alongside its announcement today that the company is vastly expanding its end-to-end encryption offerings for iCloud, including adding the protection for backups and photos stored on the cloud service. Child safety experts and technologists working to combat CSAM have often opposed broader deployment of end-to-end encryption because it renders user data inaccessible to tech companies, making it more difficult for them to scan and flag CSAM.

Where does it say in the Bible that the only thing you can celebrate about God is written in the Bible?

Oh, I've read it through cover to cover once, and am working on a second time. I usually read a chapter or two every couple days while relaxing at night.

Christmas is not pagan, sucker. I am sorry you fell for such blatant atheist Jew propaganda.

They will continue as best they can until the very second the NDAA is signed by Biden (which is how the mandate will be rolled back, it's "must pass" legislation that has all sorts of shit rolled into it). Then it will take a lawsuit, or members contacting their member's of Congress, to get them to knock it off.

I find it hard to believe my nativity set is satanic.

Just as people are saying "white anti-government violence"...where? And as the FBI gets grilled for pulling agents off kiddie porn or corruption cases by Congress to investigate non-existing white supremacists, in short, that narrative was shown to be nothing but hot air. Now they are now "connecting the dots" with the NC attack to this one, and there is this "soft target power grid" problem that has existed forever, even when there were jihadists around every corner in the Bush years who never thought to shoot up the power grid.

With GOP control of the House, this is the result. However, recruitment is so low that the Dems aren't going to go to bat to stop the roll back. GOP says they get a win, which is only kinda, sorta, is.

"Irish democracy" is the way to go at this point, till the shooting starts.

And yes, I'm sure most of us saw that in other news sources but moved on. I'm well aware that people here know about this common tier shit you're talking about, thus I only try to post stuff people might not see. I suspect others are the same.

The night before another wave of anti-regime protests, 1,200 Iranian university students were stricken with "vomiting, severe body aches, and hallucinations" because of food poisoning, the Telegraph reported Tuesday.

Students at Kharazmi University and Arak University experienced the symptoms last week, according to Iran's national student union. At least four other universities are also reporting mass food poisoning, the Telegraph reported.

"The severity of the students' condition has sent them to the hospital," the student union wrote on the instant messaging site Telegram.

Students had planned the protests in honor of Iran's Student Day.

The poisonings come as Iran faces some of its largest anti-regime protests in years, many led by students. Protests began in September after the Islamic dictatorship's morality police killed a young woman for wearing an "improper" hijab. While one Iranian official said Sunday that the regime had shuttered the morality police in the wake of the protests, Iranian state television has denied the claim.

Iranians on Monday launched a national labor strike in opposition to their country's Islamist regime, Reuters reported.

The national student union scoffed at Iranian authorities' claim that "water-borne bacteria" caused the food poisonings, saying that the government intentionally poisoned the students to thwart protests.

The poisoned students have few places to turn. University clinics have "closed or suddenly run out of electrolytes" used to treat dehydration from food poisoning, the Telegraph reported based on the student union's statement, while "female students have been told to remain inside their dormitories."

I mean, I support Russia in this war and hope they win, but it's hard to deny reality that Russia invaded. They should have done a counter-coup or some shit maybe instead. But, here we are.

Your right, it is a fairly simple perspective that a military crossing another country's border constitutes an invasion, but then again, that's what "invasion" means. You're saying that the invasion is justified, through various means, to include an attempt at redefining commonly understood terms, and I don't really disagree with any of that except the last part. It's still an invasion, just like if you call a dog's tail a 5th leg, it's still a tail.

I mean, Russia invaded. Hard to deny that. Sure, the 2014 coup, and ethnic Russians getting offed by militias, and NATO expansion, etc. etc. etc. means they kinda had it coming.

But borders have to mean something, eh?

They were still +4 or +5 Dem districts. In short, the better cheaters win.

The election of 1876 had so much fraud in it that both sides participated in, that it resulted in the Compromise of 1876 because the whole thing was a mess.

We had a period in this country with reasonably clean elections. With punch hole voting card machines and some limited reforms from the late 1960s (the 1968 Dem convention in Chicago was a spur to many of these reforms), such as voter roles on record and eliminating same day registration. The result was that all it took was 3-4% of Democrats voting for Reagan and he wins a 49 state landslide.

Ever wonder why we don't have landslide elections anymore? Even 2008 wasn't a landslide. Last "landslide" election was 1994 and the GOP taking Congress. It's not the voters, it's the voting systems. These landslides were all prior to electronic voting machines in 2000s and onwards. Coming out of the Dems losing FL in 2000, both parties pushed electronic voting machines, which are now everywhere, with the obvious consequences.
