"Republican Obsession with 'Big Tech' Hands the Dems a Antitrust Club"

I agree with this. If any group is unhappy with Google, Facebook, Twitter, or Amazon, work toward producing a superior alternative. Going after them with antitrust will open an enormous can of worms.

The common thread with all of these bills – at both the federal and state level – is that the best interest of consumers is not the focus. Politicians are seeking political retribution against companies like Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, and Google. . . . 

Once again, this is the logical conclusion when the party that is ostensibly “pro-business” begins to beat the antitrust drum. The Overton window of allowable opinion on the issue shifts dramatically to the left. Once there, the political left can do what it has far more experience doing, over-regulating.

"The tide is turning against the woke-liberal blob that misrules us"

Glenn Reynolds:

Meanwhile, at famed Thomas Jefferson High in Fairfax County, Va., a slate of parents opposed to critical race theory won election to the board. One of those candidates, Harry Jackson, the first black man elected to the board, denounced how CRT is “teaching that white people are inherently racist.” Yes. 

Fight the power. It’s easier than you think.

And Prof. Reynolds could have added some other indications of strong pushback:

John McWhorter: "You Are Not a Racist to Criticize Critical Race Theory".

"Author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie launches a blistering attack on 'entitled' woke social media users 'choking on sanctimony and terrified of having the wrong opinions' amid row with nonbinary transgender novelist".

"Watch this parent absolutely obliterate Critical Race Theory at an Illinois school board meeting".

"That's what you call good chat! Singletons share the VERY creative pick up lines that have won them over when using dating apps"

"Using a cheesy chat up line is the oldest trick in the book when it comes to dating, and is probably not going to impress anyone.

"As such, singletons are now having to be more creative with their pick up lines as they try to secure the attention of their matches on dating apps."


"You Can Have My Mask When You Pry It off My Cold, Dead Face"

By Kyle Smith. Made me laugh out loud.

Masking up every day when I get out of bed fills me with a sense of calm, wellness, and moral superiority. Frankly, I’m not ready for a future in which I just go around the community without a visible display of my self-righteousness. I suppose I could get a Queen Kamala tattoo on my face or something, but that seems impractical. (What will I do when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is president, haha.)
