Uber and Lyft want you banned from using your own self-driving car in urban areas

Image result for mussolini fascism definitionUber and Lyft want you banned from using your own self-driving car in urban areas
"The rabble can’t be trusted with self-driving cars, and only companies operating fleets of them should be able to use them in dense urban areas.
So say Uber and Lyft, as signatories to a new list of transportation goals developed by a group of international non-governmental organizations and titled “Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities.”
...According to Principle No. 10, the signatories — which also include other companies involved in transportation as a service — agree that autonomous vehicles in “dense urban areas” should only be operated in fleets..."

Park City student admits to releasing pepper spray before Turning Point club event | ParkRecord.com
Image result for shutting down free speech"A Park City High School senior facing 18 criminal charges admitted to releasing pepper spray in the school’s lecture hall last month to prevent a conservative school club from hosting an event.
The 18-year-old student on Friday admitted in 3rd District Juvenile Court to criminal mischief, a third-degree felony, as well as two counts of assault and one count of disrupting a meeting, all class B misdemeanors. 
Judge Elizabeth Knight dismissed the remaining 14 charges. 
The Park Record is not naming the student because he was a minor at the time of the incident.
...The teen admitted during the hearing that he released the spray in the lecture hall “with the intention to disrupt a meeting.”
“I didn’t feel as though it was a very safe thing for a lot of our students to really have in our school, so I decided I wanted to disrupt it,” he said during the hearing..."

"It’s worth noting that even in the Jetson’s future world of flying cars a driver was still required.

That’s because the Jetsons lived in a world where technology may have advanced but the fundamental elements of human nature remained the same. 
Which is to say most humans like to be in control. 
Driving gives us that sense, we can’t control the other idiots on the road but we can control how we maneuver around their stupidity. 
And that may be why we may actually be closer to the flying car than the driverless car.
...I cannot in a thousand years imagine why you’d turn your car controls over to a computer whose guts were built in China and will be, like your laptop, prone to failure at the most inopportune moment…leaving you completely vulnerable.

Why Bill de Blasio is running for president | Spectator USA
"...the grounds on which de Blasio is operating becomes clearer. 
It all stems from the corruption cloud that has long engulfed his mayoral administration. 
Image result for political corruptionPeople might not even remember (if they ever knew in the first place) that he ended up embroiled in serious legal jeopardy for much of his tenure in office. 
...There were two simultaneous investigations happening at the time; both federal and state. 
...Really, all of this just scratches the surface – more corruption-related leaks are destined to surface in short order. 
...All of this gets to the fundamental corruption at the heart of the American presidential election system: it’s become a racket, effectively a jobs program for useless consultants. 
What with the hyper-politicization observed during the Trump era, even the most hopeless candidate at least has a shot to raise significant sums and blow it on sleazy operatives promising that they alone possess the tools to successfully bolster the candidate’s image on TV and the web. 
...In de Blasio’s case, his city-based fundraising operation has already been basically shuttered by the cops, so why not take that same approach to the national stage and see who bites. 
It’s too tempting to pass up, especially if you’re operating with boundless hubris to begin with. 
Reach for the stars, Bill!"

Scientists Skeptical of Anthropogenic Global Warming--Jason Mamford shared a post.
"Most sources ignore the carbon in limestone completely. I want to know of any estimates that you know of, in gigatonnes."
OK I need help here. 
Please tell me the amount of carbon in limestone (in gigatonnes), and where you got that information from. 
This is very important because many people are worried about the amount of CO2 absorbed by the ocean, and claim that will cause "ocean acidification".
The IPCC and NASA simply ignore limestone completely.
It is my contention that over 99% of Carbon is contained in limestone and sediments at the bottom of the sea. It got there by sea creatures dying and their shells falling to the bottom of the sea. 
Those creatures got the carbon from dissolved CO2 from the air.
I am beginning to think there is a conspiracy to ignore limestone. 
They call it "Earth's crust" or "sedimentary rocks" but mostly ignore it completely.

A former undercover federal agent, Wayne Black, told The Daily Caller News Foundation the officials’ blindness to the affair says something about the Clinton probe, in which important leads were allegedly not followed. (RELATED: ‘If The FBI Missed This, What Else Was Missed?’ Strzok Wrote Of Email Probe).
But it also, he said, suggests Strzok used his FBI-provided training in the art of deception to become a cunning liar, a talent turned against his wife, his colleagues and investigators examining his role in the Trump-Russia investigation.

"Paid Agitators? 
Deep State? 
Calvin Coolidge exposes their plan to have “authority over everybody” and “responsible to nobody”.
See the source imagePresident Calvin Coolidge warned in a speech given May 15, 1926, at the College of William and Mary: “But there is another … recent development … the greatly disproportionate influence of organized minorities. 
Artificial propaganda, paid agitators, selfish interests, all impinge upon members of legislative bodies to force them to represent special elements rather than the great body of their constituency. 
When they are successful, minority rule is established. … 
The result is an extravagance on the part of the Government which is ruinous to the people and a multiplicity of regulations and restrictions for the conduct of all kinds of necessary business, which becomes little less than oppressive. …”
Coolidge continued, exposing the autocratic deep-state bureaucracy: “No plan of centralization has ever been adopted which did not result in bureaucracy, tyranny, inflexibility, reaction, and decline. 
Of all forms of government, those administered by bureaus are about the least satisfactory to an enlightened and progressive people. 
Being irresponsible they become autocratic. … 
Unless bureaucracy is constantly resisted it breaks down representative government and overwhelms democracy. 
It … sets up the pretense of having authority over everybody and being responsible to nobody. …”...
