Collusion and subterfuge.
Maybe you're too tweaked out to catch the subtleties.
The Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision came out today. 5-4, in favor of a second-rate corporation cynically claiming "religious freedom" to support their erroneous assertion that contraception is the same as abortion. Don't be thick. They don't really believe that. That's just what they knew would work with the court.
Remember. It's a culture war. They declared it. And they will. Not. Stop. Ever. Until we are all slaves in a dominionist fantasy. This is yet another wedge to open the door wider to theocracy. Rationalists, secularists, and intellectuals can pretend that it's not war, pretend that it's a complicated issue that can be educated or respectfully tolerated.
But it's not complicated. It's very simple. They are plainly wrong, and they are quite simply rotten to the core.
They will never rest, and they will never fight clean. They will change every statute, they will stack every school board, they will subvert every voting process, they will buy every public servant. They will not stop until we are united under one particular sharia of one particular Abrahamic desert club. When will you accept that your complete submission and subservience is their only goal? Will you take the gloves off then?
If you're not one of them, then you already know that anti-vaxxers are today's village idiots. This post is for the already-vaccinated adults.
Background info on my new piece, Overlord.
"Wah wah-wah womp Obamacare."
I'm mostly writing this for students who need this information to turn in master-quality videos at the end of the semester, but maybe it'll be useful to others.
ISP's don't want to "build" shit. They want to throttle down everything except the parts they hold hostage in an extortion scheme.
Great show coming up in Ann Arbor on May 2.
I hereby promise all future students that I will never, ever use any educational technology that violates your rights like this does.
To schools, Adobe has shouted "screw you!" from their rooftops.
BREAKING: South Carolina legislators are debating a bill that will cut all state funding to the University of South Carolina in reponse to several assigned history textbooks that refer to enslaved African laborers prior to the War of Northern Aggression.
"There needs to be academic debate," said Rep. Larry Smits. "There's plenty of evidence out there that these workers were actually called 'Happy Helpers.' President Pastides needs to force these professors to teach the controversy and assign books that refer to plantation owners as what they were—job creators."
The bill is expected to fail on a technicality. During the debate it was revealed that there are no state funds to cut.

OK, y'all. I did try to make this obviously satire. If only the real article linked at the bottom wasn't so crazy, the satire wouldn't seem so possible.
Today I was taking notes longhand.
Isn't transmission oil a dark, blackish color?
First and second class art forms, too much or too little focus, and initial accusations against the accreditation industry.
"Local" and "homegrown"

These are a few (just a few, so you don't get overwhelmed) examples of visualizations in urban design for my MART 210 class. They're very different from each other, there's no single way to do it.
Remember, your job is not really to be an effective urban designer. Your job is to show that you could create the visuals for an urban designer.
In this week's post Cooper and Marx up the ante. Things are not as they are being presented.
While I think about three Justices are total partisan proto-fascist hacks, the reaction by the Left was simply nonsense.
