    Cheating, Inc.: How Writing Papers for American College Students Has Become a Lucrative Profession Overseas
    In some sports doping is discouraged by retaining blood samples for many years. I’d propose schools and universities set up digital storage systems to do the same thing for reports of all kinds. Future detection technologies may improve, and university students might be cautioned that third world authors might someday blackmail them for their cheating. Fifty years ought to be about right.

    The Problem With Our Climate Debate Is That Only Democrats Are Showing Up
    Better one side show up than nobody at all. If the problem gets no exposure at all, our chances are just about zero.

    When the State Enforces “Straight Pride”

    There were 18 protests alone targeting Drag Queen Story Hour events, in which drag queens read to children and their family members at local public libraries.

    Call me old fashioned, but I don’t think Drag Queen Story Hour at the public library is a very good idea.

    What Even Is Spotify?
    I’m pretty sure it’s not anything of interest to me. I want to own my copy of the music, not rent it. I have the same ideas about books.

    Reference this article for the campaign against Jeremy Corbyn in the UK.

    But sympathy for the Palestinians is not antisemitism, and those who stand in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle and its dead have no reason to apologise for doing so.

    Oh yes it is! Especially if the people who buy ink by the barrel define Corbyn as antisemitic because he sympathizes with Palestinians. The Zionists are on the verge of making one of their historic land grabs. They got Trump on board with recognizing the illegal annexation of the Golan, and the transfer of the capital to Jerusalem. If Pelosi holds off a little bit longer on impeachment, and Corbyn can continue to be rendered helpless, the next batch of West Bank thievery is going to happen. Those Zionists do not give a damn about what happens to Jews in other places so long as their own plans proceed smoothly. How well this will work in the longer term remains to be seen:

    Last Time a Jewish State Annexed Its Neighbors, It Disappeared for 2,000 Years
