‘Trump, Trump, Trump!’ How a President’s Name Became a Racial Jeer - The New York Times
‘Trump, Trump, Trump!’ How a President’s Name Became a Racial Jeer “Kids saying, ‘Trump won, you’re going back to Mexico,’” wrote a teacher from Kansas. “A black student was blocked from entering his classroom by two white students chanting, ‘Trump, Trump,’” wrote a teacher from Tennessee. “Seventh-grade white boys yelling, ‘Heil Trump!’” wrote a teacher from Colorado.

WSJ: 72% of large sampling of FCC docket comments supporting Chairman Pai's anti- #NetNeutrality position were faked (not from person named as author) — a federal felony. More evidence of corruption fueling the @FCC decision to take control of the internet from internet users.

A11y Rules Podcast Episode 21 - Interview with Jeffrey Zeldman - Part 1 | Nicolas Steenhout on Patreon
A11y Rules Podcast Episode 21 - Interview with Jeffrey Zeldman - Part 1 Nic: Hey, Jeffrey, we're talking about web accessibility this morning. There's about two billion different definitions of the word. How would you define it? Jeffrey: Right. I would go back to web standards principles like progressive enhancement which say, the web is genius because it allows everyone access to content and to interactivity. And I would say that an accessible site is one that allows anyone, regardless of native physical ability, regardless of temporary physical ability, regardless of device used, or browser, or phone used, to access content. Doesn't mean they have an identical experience. Obviously someone who can't hear isn't going to hear, someone who can't see isn't going to see. Someone using a really old browser may have a simplified layout. But everyone can get to the content, everyone can do what the website promises to let them do. Because basically we've had interactivity since HTML1. Right?

With Jerusalem Move, Trump Sabotages His Own Mideast Peace Process | The New Yorker
With Jerusalem Move, Trump Sabotages His Own Mideast Peace Process “In one blow, President Trump has destroyed not only the chances of any peace but the stability and security of the region as a whole,” Hanan Ashrawi, a Palestinian legislator, said on CNN, on Wednesday. “He has undermined his closest allies in the Arab world. He has given all extremists and nuts all over the world who are ready to commit acts of violence a perfect excuse because he has provoked spiritual sentiments and religious feelings to the point where we don’t know how far the ramifications will go.”

Everybody Hates the Trump Tax Plan - The New York Times
C.E.O.s, living in the real world of business, not the imaginary world of right-wing ideologues, know that tax rates aren’t that important a factor in investment decisions. So they realize that even a huge tax cut wouldn’t lead to much more spending. And with that realization, the rationale for this tax plan, such as it is, falls apart, leaving nothing but a scheme to make the rich — especially those who rake in investment income rather than working for a living — richer at everyone else’s expense.
