An innocent questioner came to me asking "Why do you start [see chart below] at 2021?"

And it stumped me. Because I've studied Steve Morgan's tweets enough to know he's touted "$3 trillion" since at least 2018.

So, why DID I start at 2021? Quite simply…
2/🧵
…I had Morgan's more recent #guesstimates in front of me when I first decided to "chart the math."

Really, though, his multi-trillion $$$ guesstimates date back to 2016. And they're not … exactly … "scientific," if you know what I mean:
3/🧵
Morgan's original multi-trillion $$$ #guesstimate waffled as it [d]evolved from 2016 through 2017 depending on whom he cited:

On MLK Jr day, consider this proposition:

"MLK Jr was a blue piller."

Harry Truman desegregated the armed forces in 1948

All that was needed "going forward" was enforcement of the laws in place.

Instead, MLK Jr was used to sew dissent and unhappiness.
The Elites don't want humanity raceless and unified.

The same is true about gender. We continue to hear about the one in a million edge case where a woman is discriminated against. Cases that could be quietly handled in a court room.

Discontent is profitable. Harmony is not.

Is this snark or legit “not all White people” in *my* TL in the year of our Queen Betty White’s 2022?! 🤷🏾‍♀️🧐 #DyingOfWhitenessWithJonAndJane
Asked & answered. 🙄💅🏾☕️🧾🌴 #ScreenshotsAreForever #Bloop
I can assure you you’re roasting your own self, dear. 🥴 Deplorable and unexamined White privilege are a CHOICE, they go together like PB&J.

Bon, c'est pas de gaité de cœur, mais il va encore falloir faire mon Viktorovitch sur ce thread du patron de Binge France. Mais ce ne sera pas un thread sur la linguistique, parce que j'y connais rien.

Dire que ce sujet est insignifiant, c'est ne pas saisir les enjeux, que vous y soyez favorable ou non.

Accepter ce pronom, et donc l'autodétermination de son genre quel que soit son sexe, implique deux changements radicaux, quasiment anthropologiques

Le premier est accepter que le genre est une "identité en soi", indépendante du sexe. Or le genre, on ne sait toujours pas ce que c'est. C'est donc normal que les gens s'interrogent avant de signer

Ici les def actuelles du genre, aucune ne correspond à ce dont il est question :

I will now fully defend @jonathanreiber's assertion.

Notice his key phrase: "a measurable economic impact on the American population."

This measurement derives from the fact #ColonialPipeline itself chose to shut down its operations "out of an abundance of caution"...
2/11
...so we can rightly say "computer security #hysteria led to a measurable economic impact on the American population."

But ... have there been UN-measured impacts?

Certainly!

I can cite my hilarious audio column from exactly 20 years ago today:
3/11
I consider it a first -- a true first! -- that we can measure a real economic impact from computer security #hysteria.

Now we have a cyber attack on the world's largest meat supplier. And it won't surprise me if @JBSCareers shuts down all operations "as a precaution."

Let's talk about how the 2,000pp "House 2.0 antivirus experiment" was in fact an intelligence report (aka "INTSUM") on the global #antivirus industry.

It began in 1999 after I'd revealed the existence of "EIS," later renamed "ADVEIS." It was an #antivirus rootkit...
2/22
ADVEIS stood for "Antivirus-Dependent Vulnerabilities in Email Infrastructure Security." I developed it in the late 1990s while working at A.G. Edwards & Sons building the U.S. brokerage industry's first SOC.

I gave a public lecture on ADVEIS, then dusted my hands of it.
3/22
But ADVEIS had rankled the #antivirus industry.

This led IBM bigwig David Chess to call my office.

I admit it: Chess is the one man I never beat in a philosophical match.

"So, Rob: you got root access from every AV company's products. What are you going to do *next*?"

Sorry to leave you hanging there yesterday, Smithsters. There's just a lot going on in this chapter!
So we return to #AdamSmith's many grievances with the very idea of the mercantile system. (IV.i.14–45) #WealthOfTweets #SmithTweets
People worry too much about the supply of cash money. It’s easy to import more and you can always use barter instead, if things get really tight. Also, paper money is a thing! (IV.i.14–15) #WealthOfTweets #SmithTweets
But everyone complains about a scarcity of money. That’s usually because they can’t get credit, or are big spenders. Or it can be caused by overtrading. It’s not about how many coins are around, but the ease of getting them. (IV.i.16) #WealthOfTweets #SmithTweets

@cheeseflavor #ahem Raitt, for sure, but I have a Rory Block I'll send you ...
Whenever I taught Intro to Lit or American Lit, I did a unit on the #blues. Here's one I always liked playing in class: Hattie Hart's 1934 "I Let My Daddy Do That."
So I play Rory Block's cover of this 1934 song by the great Hattie Hart to college students & I ask them about her sly use of humor to talk about sex & a man in his 40s looks startled & says, "Wait. It's about sex?" #OBoy
