Douglas We have entered a new regime and it’s called the American police state.

Use of data-driven risk assessments in sentencing may be heard by the Supreme Court. Karen Neoh/flickr, CC BY In 2013, a man named Eric L.

Loomis’ COMPAS score indicated he was at a “high risk” of committing new crimes. Considering this prediction, the judge sentenced him to seven years. Loomis challenged his sentence, arguing it was unfair to us... more »

Fox News takes misguided left turn at Paris climate exit

Larry Bell at CFACT - 10 hours ago
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell notes that even Fox News' Chris Willace has drunk the Kool-Aid, as he assaulted President Trump for refusing to subject American citizens to the whims of a UN agreement that intentionally targeted the U.S. for punishment. Apparently, there are a large number of Americans who still want to be horsewhipped for the sins of their forebears (which while vile were universal at the time). Wallace, it appears, has joined the Jellyfish backbone crowd.

"The word ‘snobbery' came into use for the first time in England during the 1820s. It was said to have derived from the habit of many Oxford and Cambridge colleges of writing sine nobilitate (without nobility) or ‘s.nob.' next to the names of ordinary students on examination lists in order to distinguish them from their aristocratic peers.” - Alain De Botton

*Brad Pitt Does Stanley McChrystal: When Netflix’ War Movie Stops Being Funny* By David Swanson The new movie, *War Machine*, on Netflix starring Brad Pitt begins as a hilarious and satisfying mockery of General Stanley McChrystal, circa 2009, as well as of militarism in general. Hilarious because of the deadpan sincere idiocy. Satisfying at least to those of us who have been screaming “What are you idiots doing?” for the past fifteen-and-a-half years.

*The Atlantic*'s David A. Graham writes: ... if there is one thing that it is safe to say terrorists want, it is to sow terror. It’s the definition of the term: political violence meant to seed fear and intimidation.... But though Trump pays lip service to wartime leader Winston Churchill—restoring a bust of the prime minister to the Oval Office, for example—he has consistently taken a different approach in response to attacks. Refusal to back down in the face of adversity is not uniquely British. Churchill’s American counterpart, Franklin Roosevelt, famously cautioned in his 1933 ... more »
