Politics

I never wanted to get into politics, I’ve enjoyed abstaining for a long time. It had only become complicated when pieces of legislation like the Digital Millenium Copyright Act managed to sluice through the cracks and fuck up my life. Yes, this act directly effects me. Yes, it’s detrimental to my lifestyle. It’s detrimental to my data aggregation habits.

In any case, I’m voting for Bernie for some pretty damned decent reasons. He’s totally opposed to the Trans-Pacific Partnership; a horror-show of 7,000 pages dedicated to NAFTA-esque freebies for exporting U.S. jobs. Bernie also supports net neutrality. Why would he support net neutrality, you ask? Nearly all the momentum that has propelled him in this election originated from free and democratic access to the internet. The idea that I should have to pay extra to AT&T or Comcast for people to access my Twitter feed at a reasonable speed is not only asinine, it’s unconstitutional.

I voted for Bernie in Michigan’s primary. I’m going to vote for him again in the general election, he’s going to be on the ballot. Hillary is a disgusting creature and quite possibly won’t even be eligible for the democratic nominee spot.

I encourage everyone to read Hillary’s emails on Wikileaks.

More Accounts Crop Up

It looks like more anti-Bernie twitter accounts are starting to fill up some choice hash tags mentioned in my previous post. Maybe we can figure out if some of these people are paid shills, or if they’re actually this delusional.

Right off the bat it looks like @CraigCrawlspace is a paid shill or a bot. @demliberalways is also highly suspect. Lastly, @danielsloebey is absolutely a paid shill.

What do you think?

Anti-Progress Sentiments

It looks like there are more “Anti-Bernie” twitter users now than there ever have been. So, now more than ever, I’m interested in watching them. I collected a handful of users active on #NotUsMe, #VetBernie, #VettingBernie, and #BernedOut.

It certainly looks like a few of them are just paid shills.

But, just in case, I’ve thrown together a quick script to convert their User IDs to ID numbers. That way, if any of these anti-bernie assholes ever change occupations (other than bashing Bernie), we can still observe them knowing full well what they’re about.

Note: This is a small sampling of a few hours. If you’d like me to add to my list, just email me at [email protected].

EDIT: I’ve swapped info to include :created_at. Probably more useful.

Trump Deletes Racist Tweets

Apparently Donald Trump unleashed a little racism on twitter before thinking twice and deleting the offending tweets. Veracity of claims shown here has not been confirmed, but I haven’t seen a “Donalt Trump tweet generator” in Spanish, so I’m inclined to believe it.

Trump is Racist 1

Trump is Racist 2
