From the Fusion article: “The emergency contraceptive levonorgestrel—aka Plan B—was available in the United States for nearly 15 years before the idea that it wasn’t effective for women above a certain weight started getting attention.”
That should bother you, a lot. Neither the US government (which is currently controlled by people who want to own women) nor the manufacturer have done their jobs in making sure people know this, much less creating a better product.
If you or someone you know is a potential user of Plan B, please read and spread this information.
It’s worth reading this April 2000 post from Joel Spolsky on the programmer impulse to discard the current app to build a better one, and potential consequences of allowing this impulse to dominate. It’s as relevant today as when he wrote it.
The New York Times presents the case of a well-known right-wing propagandist who generates false stories that are taken up by Breitbart, Limbaugh, and the rest of the hate machine and used to cast doubt on facts harmful to the right, in this case sowing doubt about Comey’s testimony on Trump’s obstruction of justice.
This fits the definition of treason to me. These propagandists are working for Russia, whether paid by Putin or not. As with Trump, the GOP led government is unlikely to take action against these traitors because it helps keep them in power. Party over Country is the GOP mantra.
This Slacktivist post is excellent food for thought. It’s appropriate to assess the impact of a life once it’s over. In Ailes’ case, this could start with a list of his evil deeds against individuals and generations with his sexual predation and use of fear to bring our nation to the brink of destruction.
