Looks like the unmentionable Soros is in the news again. That right wing @TheEconomist discussed this just last week and I wanted to bring it up. A quick thread. economist.com/node/21791409?…
Of particular interest is this *logarithmic* scale, famous for pretending things are in the same league, when they’re not. Let’s transform these coordinates, shall we?
You already see Bloomberg and Soros are in a league of their own.
I eyeballed this chart, and translated it into arithmetic terms. You see Soros and Bloomberg overshadow everyone else combined. (no idea where Tom Steyer is in this chart).
Let's expand this to include the top Republican donors in this chart.
You see that they eclipse all other donors when you combine both election cycles.
What's unique about Soros, however, is Bloomberg seems to limit his campaign contributions to legislative seats. Nothing is off limits to Soros. He loves to back DAs, which then back Antifa. What's the point of legislating, when you can decide what gets enforced?

Silicon Valley used to be a cradle of creative mavericks. How did they become so authoritarian? My attempt at a thread.
Twitter used to declare itself "the free speech wing of the free speech party." Google's motto was "don't be evil." Such slogans have gone horribly wrong, leaving people with various theories - CCP manipulation, deep state ties, media contracts.
All of these theories have some grain of truth, but they don't arrive at the heart of the issue.
Which is that even internally, these companies have been purging their old school creative rebel workforce, and replacing them with woke children.

Okay. Thread on scale, Coronavirus, and the big scary Twinkie.
Diseases have a lifecycle. Once the genie is out of the bottle, it’s assumed it runs through the entire population. The only question is when. This is your basic graph.
The original doomsday estimate of 2.5mil deaths was on the assumption everyone would catch Corona, and apply the 1% fatality rate.

Bayesian math concept: a test with 99% success rate, on something that hits 1% of the population, is no better than a coin toss. mercurynews.com/2020/03/21/her…
To clarify: run this test on everyone in the population. What are the chances your answer is right in any one instance? Answer: flip a coin.
Take this a step further. Say 1 in a million people in USA (330 million) has coronavirus. You apply a test, across the board, with a 99% accuracy rate.

California’s politics make a lot more sense once you figure we’re basically a colony of China at this point.
I’ve been learning a lot of law enforcement terminology these past few years. Do we have “probable cause”? No. So we make no accusations.
But we do have “reasonable suspicion”. And that’s enough to ask pressing questions.
1. We've seen a lot of foreign investment in coastal residential property the last 20-30 years. Nobody inhabits it - which has turned many communities dark. How much of this is from China? Who's been courting this investment?

And I say that in all earnestness.
I *like* Issa. I've met him, I know people who've worked with him. But this is beyond the pale.
Let's talk about what a staunch supporter Issa was.
Issa was such a staunch Trump supporter, his reaction to Trump's 2016 victory was to RESIGN FROM THE HOUSE (CA49). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darrell_I…
