Today the "entertainment" press is clogged with stories of which celebrity homes have burned, and which are next in line to be consumed by a wildfire tearing through the Pantsuit fiat-affluent left coast stronghold of Malibu. A number of washed up has beens long out of the paparazzi eye including Martin Sheen suddenly found renewed attention as "missing" persons for evacuating without press escorts.
Sixteen Canadian women working as estheticians face "human rights" complaints over their refusal to wax scrotums (archived). The complaints have all been brought by a single complaintant selfidentifying as a "trans-woman", and the complaints have all come with a settlement demand to drop the complaint for a four figure amount of Canadian dollars. The cost of defending against the complaints at the "human rights" tribunal is expected to incur five figure Canadian dollar liabilities. The recipients of the complaints are specialists in attending to women, and they insist that waxing balls is outside their professional scope of practice.
Two weeks into the effort to capture the local cannabis market launched by a criminal organization referring to themselves as the "Canadian Government", they are without product to sell (archived). New actors in the cannabis market aligned with this upstart Canadian cartel are failing to keep up with demand for the most easily cultivated crop of of commercial value ever developed. Physical store fronts are reducing hours and closing for much of the week as they face a complete absence of any product to sell. The shortages are not of any particular kind or grade of cannabis in a way that suggests misreading demand in a selective consumer market. The shortages are of any weed at all.
The winners in this situation are the black and gray market actors satisfying the market they have long supplied in the face of a coordinated bullying campaign to rob them of their livelihoods. As this situation continues, the new Canadian cartel is faced with four options:
- They surrender their failed efforts to be a cartel, admit their mistakes, and open the market up by tossing the rulebook.
- They reach out to the people they tried to squash in a spirit of friendship and hope their efforts are met with forgiveness.
- They continune their effortful ignoring of the black and gray markets in the end writing off their own cartel play as a public health service achieving a Uruguay situation.
- The claws come out and in the name of revenue "legalization" is made more oppresive by tax agents than prohibition ever was.
It is still early in the game, and there is little information on how this criminal organization which decided to get into the drug trade is going to play the collision between their plans and reality. However, persons at risk if the claws do come out are advised to maintain their operational security without relaxing simply because "legalization" is the word of the day. It is necessary to remember the enemy is indeed a criminal organization that decided to attempt capturing the local drug trade.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is begging China to "act like a normal nation" and avoid capturing developing nations in a debt trap leading to decades of pain widely distributed around the world (archived). This appeal seemingly crafted to tear at the heartstrings is void of a certain necessary context: Trapping developing nations in debt and amplifying their pain is the US and EU's schtick and they would very much like China to step back and get out of their way.
Chinese foreign investment isn't always without controversy where it occurs, but it tends to have a transparency the old IMF scheme lacked. Raw materials for otherwise inaccessible finished goods is a rather kind deal compared to what was on offer before.
A leak of 120 liters of liquid helium in a medical facility lead to massive failures of Apple iDevices including phones, tablets, and "fitness" tracking bracelets (archived).
Germany's Angela Merkel has begun advertising her plan to escape her ruinous political career in these changing, great again times. Her exit will begin this December where she will not seek another term as chairzher of her party and continue through 2021 when she will not seek another term as chancellor. Of course she could lose the chancellorship earlier if her coalition collapses under the weight of the messes she wrought.
Gab, a twitter alternative that welcomes all comers,1 has lost its hosting after the Pantsuit made a fuss over one of their anti-Trump users trying to shoot up a ceremony celebrating the Jewish Covenant of Circumcision (archived). The shooter happened to have an account on Gab where he was likely radicalized into terrorism by US "law enforcement", and an ISP calling itself "Joylent" decided they couldn't continue taking Gab's money while the media was talking about Gab. Paypal joined in and decided they couldn't handle Gab's money.
In this world where Bitcoin exists with the Republican, Pantsuit resistant, PizarroISP running, there is little reason for people interested in publishing with censorship resistance to resort to heathen solutions open to all comers.
While Gab insists they are a "free speech" alternative to Twitter, they crack down on "illegal content" in a disappointing buy in to Pantsuit insanity. ↩
