Biden to call for 5% cap on annual rent increases, as he tries to show plans to tame inflation
  • I would think tax law could make it completely untenable to own residential properties as rentals and give federal tax breaks to developers that build affordable housing? I’m sure there could also be federal grants to cities for easing zoning restrictions. Not sure how much of this is possible.

  • OpenAI reportedly nears breakthrough with “reasoning” AI, reveals progress framework
  • It's the Elon Musk narrative making we've been seeing over and over again. It's hype. They're about to run out of input data because they've sucked up everything they could. The Internet is being fed a bunch of bad results that come from LLM produced output which enshittifies the Internet further. These companies are burning cash and grid energy while the world burns. Unless there's a spectacular breakthrough, this can't keep going on much longer.

  • Netanyahu says ceasefire deal must allow Israel to keep fighting until ‘all goals achieved’
  • There's a British medical journal called lancet that estimates the deaths at 186,000. Remember. The death counts stopped changing much in like February or March because Israel destroyed the Gaza Health ministry which is responsible reporting.

  • Biden loses his train of thought, calls Harris 'Vice President Trump' in solo press conference
  • Straight up witnessing elder abuse. My grandfather was getting so old that he was making basic mistakes while driving. We took the keys away because he could hurt someone.

    The fact that they're allowing this man to humiliate himself and this country over and over again speaks to the cruelty of the people who are still covering for this.

  • Sotomayor Offers a Preview of What Trump Could Do as President
  • Are we really still talking about how Clinton being one of the least popular politicians to run for president took it upon herself to tank a must win election? Really? I need this talking point to find its place in a grave. This is stupid.

    Everyone knew Trump was a trainwreck. Clinton was so unpopular that people stayed home. She snubbed key states against campaign advice. She sucks. And she lost democracy for the US. We didn't owe Clinton a vote. Clinton needed people to vote for her. She didn't do enough to earn the votes. I voted for her begrudgingly. But Democrats turned their knives on Bernie harder than they did against Trump. And it turned a lot of people off from voting. At least Biden did some semblance of appeasement for the left populist wing of the Democrats in the first election.

  • The US will pay Moderna $176 million to develop an mRNA pandemic bird flu vaccine
  • If we were a reasonable country, we'd have a research arm of the FDA that was employing scientists/chemists to develop drugs for the most basic health needs of its citizens and dispensing them at cost to keep drugs affordable but developing cures versus disease maintenance drugs. It was something that Elizabeth Warren proposed in 2016 that was absolutely the right thing to run on.

    But we live in a hellish American landscape where our government does absolutely the bare minimum amount of support for those in need. And does so begrudgingly.

    Hilary Clinton Endorses George Latimer in Challenge to Unseat Jamaal Bowman

    If you need a clearer example of how the Clintons are opportunist scumbags that will use race to get elected in one breath and throw minorities under the bus if they don't agree with their horrific world views.

    can you imagine an American grocery chain standing up to their vendors?

    French supermarket chain Carrefour has slapped price warnings on products ranging from Lindt chocolates to Lipton Ice Tea to pressure suppliers such as Nestlé, PepsiCo and Unilever to cut their prices.

    The difference between European countries and America is becoming so stark. Anyone reading or watching global news has to see how backwards this country is and that it’s only getting worse.

    It’s about time that Intuit was called out for their scam. Hopefully, the attempt to stop the federal tax filing will get dismissed as well.
