This is the same technology that’s being used by Israel to sort Palestinians for murder in Gaza.

Let that really sink in.

Now remember your local police department is salivating over it too.

Oh, and fascism is on the rise globally.

Petitioners in rural Ohio tried to get support to raise the minimum wage which WILL HELP POOR WHITE PEOPLE, mind you, and got harassed out of several counties because they had Black people working with them.

Happy belated white people independence day, though.

“‘If it’s hot outside, we can raise the price of water and ice cream. If there's something that’s close to the expiration date, we can lower the price — that’s the good news,’ said Phil Lempert, a grocery industry analyst.”

Imagine saying the first bit and ending it with “that’s the good news.”

The Phil Lemperts of the world are the reason we can’t have nice things.
