WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- President Donald "Duke" Trump has now pulled off his "sheets" and has finally exposed himself as to what we all have been saying and writing about for the past year and a half. A lot of our reviews and readers just could not understand the stories that we were talking about. Now you know for good or bad.
Only the people that were there with the expressed reason for starting violence for the sake of just starting trouble. Remember this picture? We told you that some day this picture will be a very hard piece to get over.
General Robert E. Lee was a traitor. He along with Jefferson Davis, et al., should have been tried for TREASON and hanged. They caused the deaths of over 500,000 persons. They wanted to continue the practice of selling and owning other persons. The love of FREE LABOR.
President Trump and Mr. Bannon loves chaos and has vowed to destroy the United States of America. The people who voted for Trump for one thing -- and ended up with something else.
Yet 65% of the Republican Party will continue to support this Nazi President.

China Asked for a Playlist of Canadian Music. Here’s What I Gave Them.
A weird thing is happening in China. After decades of refusing to pay for things like CDs (not to mention aiding and abetting rampant copyright infringement by supporting the biggest counterfeit and bootleg market in the world), the country’s music fans seem to be willing to pay for streaming. The ability to conveniently access millions of songs on demand is stomping out piracy in a country known for ripoffs.
Eric de Fontenay runs a project called Canadian Sounds in China which maintains some playlists on a couple of streaming sites. (Here’s an example of the kind of stuff they post.) He asked me to put together a collection of Canadian music for sites like Netease Music and QQMusic.
Easy, I thought. But once I started, I realized how difficult this task was. How do you sum of the musical personality of an entire country in just 40 songs? And how deep should I go? I mean, we gotta consider the audience and their knowledge of us, right? Even after spending a couple of hours on this thing, I still wasn’t sure whether I got it correct.
Turns out it was pretty popular. On Netease, it ended up with 1,800 followers and 250,000 plays. Nice to see Canadian music traveling well, innit?
Here’s my full list:

Facebook created a censorship tool for the Chinese market

Who cares about a trivial thing such as human rights when there's money to be made, right? Clearly not Facebook; the largest social network in the world has decided that it really needs access to the Chinese market, so it created a censorship tool to hide posts that the country's government doesn't want its citizens to see. However, Facebook won't actually do the censoring, it will just give the tool to Chinese authorities and let them do it.
For those of you who don't now exactly what we're talking about, the Chinese regime likes to hold a very tight grip on the information that gets to the regular citizens, so major services like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, YouTube or Instagram are being blocked in the country. Of course, China is a huge market and there are a lot of money to be made there, but most companies would rather keep their image from being associated with such things. Just so we're clear, as far as we know, Facebook hasn't yet given the censorship system to the Chinese government, but even the fact that such a tool was developed says a lot. Furthermore, according to inside sources, this is just one of the social network's plans to get accepted back into China.
