Sounds like a fake excuse. Their partnering with the evil US Government lapdogs like Microsoft, makes me think the concern was less about technology progression and more about intended unethical application of the technology.

This heavily falls on my preconceived assumptions though:

I suspect machine learning and AI have been used to subvert democracies for more than a decade already and what we are being shown of AI, now, is 15 or 20 year old technology, which has simply been retooled for, less public manipulation/democracy control (foreign and domestic), and skewed more towards public consumption. We'll give you a small bit of our technology, but only after we have used it to oppress you for 20 years or so. This is the general governmental pattern (whom takes control of all new technology with security implications).

You will always have a hard time passing off media innuendo as DOJ actionable legal convictions and court action. (A hard time, not impossible, as we see in various court circus court proceedings) Pretending that the President caused Jan 6th by pointing out the many serious sworn accusations and legal mischief of the election, is an intellectually dishonest joke..rather than holding the people accountable for Jan 6th, who stonewalled investigations, refused to review election problems, and mislead the public about the large volume of evidence. Refusing to investigate, hiding evidence, and refusing the normal legal procedures to address such problems, led most of America to lose confidence in the the people who made the election concerns public.

I remember CNN reporting on "Trump's big lie" and Ruddy going to court challenging election fraud. CNN made fun of his huge stack of evidence....while declaring that he was intending to overthrow the election without evidence...

I suspect the Orwellian Ministry of Truth forbade news companies, under threat, from reporting on the huge election fraud or efforts to legally address it, without calling it "unfounded" , a "lie", or "without evidence", even while clearly there is a mound of evidence.

FBI arrests Miami Police officer accused of stealing cash and drugs during traffic stops by Drewski in PoliceMisconduct

[–]SoCo 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I was involved in a police attack, from local cops who did this.

Me and an acquaintance was pulled over. They were sure there would be drugs. They searched the vehicle because they driver wasn't properly licensed. We had no drugs, but we wished that we did, as this pissed the cops off real bad and they spend the next hour beating us. The driver was beat while handcuffed behind his back, by what must have been the most pussy-ass police sergeant ever. While he did that, his other officer beat the other guy's head of the cop car, who was with us, and the third officer kept a gun pointed at my head. The driver was the only one able to sue. He won an undisclosed amount.

During the process of making testimony towards the lawsuit, I learned that the city that employed them, openly knew this gang of cops routinely jacked people for drugs and money and had been doing so for many years.

The city paid the lawsuit. The police officers were fired and hired somewhere else promptly, with no loss to themselves and little concern. I think I read that the same cops ran some kid over killing him while chasing him in their cruiser, not too long later.

Because many like diluting things based on race: The sergeant and one officer were white, and the one with the gun to my head was black (he didn't beat anyone and said he was supporting his sergeant). All three of us, whom they assaulted are white. It doesn't seem that race played a role in these actions.

They've got to ban giving to the poor, because the government officials can't pocket and misappropriate the money, if it doesn't go through their tax system.

A currency with no backing, or backed only with debt, is more like a time share club. Especially when the government and inter-banking intermediates, can loan to each other and themselves at a fractional-reserve, whim, controlling supply, inflation, and value.

Since you labor for that value, they are siphoning off your labor against your will. It is just slavery with extra steps. One can never be free with an un-backed currency, whose supply is not fixed or algorithmic.

US Senate passes stopgap bill, averts government shutdown — for now by ansar in WorldNews

[–]SoCo 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Republicans forced Democrats to vote on just the budget, giving a stop gap bill. The Democrats are still keen on continuing to force a government shutdown if they don't get billions of tax payers' dollars for Ukraine. This was the only reason of contention, holding up the funding bill, and risking shutdown.

Every year it is the same thing, Democrats demanding partisan pork or insane nonsense....then they get their weaponized media to trick the world into thinking Republicans are causing a government shutdown if they refuse to pass a bill with their pork. This is a common trick they do. Pelosi even pulled it for the first Covid bill with checks. Nothing like delaying the Covid support money for an extra week or week and a half, just to get a news cycle or two of "Republicans are blocking the Covid bill", which Democrats blocked, copied, and submitted as their own already. Pelosi's political trick delayed money to hospitals and other critical Covid response and her dirty political trick can likely be measured by how many deaths of Americans it caused.

BLM Activist John Sullivan “Jayden X” Found Guilty on All Seven Counts for his Actions on January 6, 2021 by zyxzevn in corruption

[–]SoCo 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

He wasn't charged at all, until very very recently.

This guy was running the Proud Boys at the time of Jan 6th, by force. The Proud Boys had amassed a large number of non-member volunteers and organized them in a chat room (Discord or something). This guy was with them in person during their planning, but he burned them. He coup'd the chat room and convinced them to go to a room he controlled and took over. He was frequently suggesting destruction, insurrection, and violence. This was very much against the Proud Boys' interests, whom were very dedicated to protecting protesters and did so with very meticulous planning, which left a ton of documentation and evidence of their innocent intent. Yet, Sullivan turned states evidence on the Proud Boys after leading them into the Capitol. Sullivan's own urging of violence was used as the only evidence that the Proud Boys had violent intentions, except for the other undercover who infiltrated them....

..The CIA dude (the crypto scammer guy who avoided all charges), who sent them lame "plan" for taking over the capitol. It was an obvious joke plan that should have been wrote in crayons. The Proud Boys leader guy was in a relationship with this under cover cop lady, who introduced them to this crypto scammer guy. He had a little crypto fame and a lot of followers, which was their interest with him. They were working on a plan to get him to help them get some donations for free t-shirts for underprivileged kids. This guy had been involved in a huge crypto scam, where everyone but him got 20+ years.. His crayon joke plan was referred to as "1176 returns" and used in court pretending that this crypto scammer giving them his crayon plan, meant they were guilty intention of doing those things and supported the joke plan. This crypto scammer was deposed by the courts about it and admitted to writing up this plan for treason. He made a scene during the questioning that seemed like something he read in some cloak n dagger spy book, rolling around on the ground and yelling about a cramp in his leg. He also admitted to working with CIA in so many words. The court gave him a softball questioning with special privileges and let him go. He was not charged.

The Proud Boys leader was very strangely banned from protesting, at all, at the time. Oddly, no one raised the question of how abnormal or unethical, or down right UnAmerican that banning a black person from their right to protest is, regardless of legal accusations. 100's of Violent rioters from 2016 were released on that ethical premises of not wanting to oppress their rights to protest. you can see, there is MUCH more to this story!

This Jayden X had to give money back by the court long ago and the large media companies lied to the court telling them he was a journalist. He repeats this now, but that was a lie they came up with, CNN The Today Show or whoever it was, who paid him for the picture, to avoid racketeering charges for doing so. They were paying for the fruits of a crime.

There has been a large increase in measles outbreaks in the US since Biden took office and opened up the border. Of course, the weaponized media is blaming the couple percentage point drop in vaccination during Covid, which doesn't add up. There is always huge efforts to hide medical outbreaks coming from illegal immigrants.

We have to remember that the 2016 US measles outbreak was an anomaly. A huge nationwide outbreak started from an unvaccinated Ultra Orthodox Jewish community in New York, which ultimately resulted in more than a thousand infections in the US, across many states, spreading to mostly school aged kids, including 142 fully vaccinated people.

Americans refuse to quit eating meat by UncountablyInfinite in whatever

Non-Rich Americans refuse to quite eating meat and so that the rich don't have to stop eating it or destroying the environment.

There has openly been a pre-planned strategy to cause water and food scarcity through multiple avenues. Fake reasons are easy, they don't require expending your limited use trick: slaughtering the animals due to real or perceived viral or other contamination concern...

...Why? Because you can only use this trick fully once. Then all the meat production gets moved into sealed factory farms. since bird flu and most viral concerns, come from farm animals' proximity to wild animals. Most wild birds are immune to, but carriers of, bird flu. Ducks, geese, and other wild animals are thought to be responsible for spreading bird flue to farms. Once locked in a sealed building, these farm animals would be better protected from both natural source of bird flu and intentional nefarious infection, making this a one time big trick.

This also ends the methane argument.

The moronic faulty logic about transporting the meat-based food, processing it, and land usage to sustain it, is just bonkers. Like, what do they think happens to their vegan food? Their comparing pound-for-pound wheat to meat is also stupid as fuck. 2 pounds of meat sustain a person for much longer than 2 pounds of wheat (they didn't say if it was processed or not).

"Lab grown meat" will always be bug-based, even if they pretend it is not. Remember that.

First planned small nuclear reactor plant in the US has been canceled, despite massive subsidy...but it is not from 'renewables dropping' (see comments) by SoCo in news

[–]SoCo[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The Nov 2020 article by the same writer, clarifies that jumping ship from investing in the project was due to the very tight financial feasibility of the project and the difficulty it has competing with natural gas.

That article also mentions that the US Department of Energy had planned on fully buying the reactor to be build on the Utah power group (UAMPS)'s site, having their national lab run and evaluate it, then eventually giving it to UAMPS. But now it seems the US Department of Energy, instead, plans on contributing $1.3B (or $1.4B depending on where you read) over 10-years to stimulate the new technology's development. Arstechnica additionally suggest, "that would be dependent upon annual renewals of the funding by Congress during that decade, which is yet another risk."

What it doesn't mention clearly, however, the crucial detail that this dumping ship from the project really ramped up after the project declared that it would be 3 years behind schedule and costs would climb an extra $1.8B (to $6.1 billion)!

The 2020 Arstechnica article suggests the 3 year schedule delay, and I'd assume the cost increase with it, rose due to the project needing to be larger to be worthwhile:

"Separately, to reach a target price for the power that is expected to be competitive with natural gas, the project has been made larger and its completion delayed by three years."

My Conclusion: it sounds like this will likely push forward one way or another, despite the friction and paltry federal investment. At worst, the technology's roll out will take about another decade or so to get going, due to the extra costs of being a new technology, devastated economy, and the technologies need to mature to become financially competitive with cheaper alternatives (still mostly natural gas) at a scale that doesn't cost too much.

On a related note:

My state of Illinois just has sent a bipartisan plan to approve a mini-reactors funding plan in the state. It has passed the House, the Senate, and has been sent to our fat-ass Governor Pringles to sign. The bill's critics (AP suggests they are"environmentalists") seem to complain that the technology is a decade or more from being ready, but the bill's sponsors suggest that makes the timing perfect, as the "federal permitting process [could take] as much as eight years".

Unfortunately, we don't really have good data for these areas. They are basing these projections on projected future changes from the projected 1979–2018 baseline stats, which they stitched together mostly from prediction models, despite this being the period just after the mini ice age scare of the 1970's ended and the mild weather and low solar activity making for a decade and a half or two of extra cool weather. If starting your chart from the uncharacteristically cold period, it always looks like the temperature is going up. Yet, here, they didn't even had that data and projected using computer models from Hawaii. They then considered this a solid base line, and further projected from there....garbage data in; garbage data out.

The computer models also rarely handle monsoon seasons well, if at all, which is critical for this area, as the concern is the monsoon season being slightly mild for a few decades, a blink of the eyes and merely statistical noise, when 'climate' is considered. This area is expected to have very wet periods and very dry, in seasonal cycles, which vary across this very huge area.

CO2 being important is a joke. They stick to it, because it is easy to control, manipulate, make wild speculative measurements of it, and they've already laid out a flood of propaganda pointing the finger at mention of this being offset by our increasingly cutting down forests and killing all ocean life.

Yet, we are covering the whole earth in a concrete blanket and trying our best to ignore this cause. This is so much of a problem, that we no longer have ANY reliable surface temperature readings. The USGS array of surface temperature weather stations have been embarrassingly > 90% out of specification since like 2014. These stations a worthless for surface temperature, and out of specification faulty stations, if closer than 30 feet from any building, concrete, road, or structure....these are heat trapping features...yet nearly everyone that could be observed, was found to be actually in a parking lot, next to the hot air blowing part of air conditioner units, next to buildings, on concrete platforms....and on top of natural hot water springs.

After the latest embarrassment, again after another ~10 year round of proving it to be even worse, and down to like 98% bad station... they never fixed it. Instead, they went with deception and added a bunch of new temp stations, but then declared use of a hand-wavy algorithm to make the new temp stations match the old bad data.

So, you must remember, WE DON'T KNOW THE ACCURATE TEMPERATURE OF EARTH and haven't for 30 or 40 years.

This guy was an out of work actor, who dawned an iconic costume, and had a history of infiltrating many political protest groups (suspected of antifa fascists, BLM, and others), he had a US Navy background, was from Arizona, and refused to eat non-organic food in jail.

The first thing he did in court is nonsensically suggest Trump told him to do it....

Sounds like a paid informant to me, designed to be the publicity focus hood ornament, used to keep your attention while the hundreds of other law enforcement+informants steered the bipartisan civil uprising against ignored election concerns, into the desired result of a peaceful protests that appeared bad, leaving the weaponized media to do the rest, by being forbidden from calling it a protest, bipartisan, about election concerns, or mentioning the amount of people who were there.

Instead, they were required, likely under government duress based on the Twitter Leaks, to report it as only Trump supporters, exaggerating reports of violence, only about changing the election results, and repeating the megaphone affect of projected group motivation, mind-reading and guessing without evidence, that the entire public protesting wanted an insurrection/coup. This is the standard gaslighting one-and-only-trick, which never stops working.

Since protesting always intends to inform about issues, express displeasure in government past and future actions, and pressure government to change......this set a president for declaring all protesters insurrectionist any time they protest the government.

Now, all protesters who urge for government change, which the FBI/DOJ and others don't like, can be imprisoned for the brand new insane interpretation of law, deeming protesting a felony for obstruction/insurrection.

Between conspiracy and obstruction charges, the US justice system has been diluted to no longer require proof beyond a reasonable doubt of crime or intent. Obstruction can never properly be defended against, as you can never testify your own state of mind, especially with hard documentation eluding to proving this, as this is technically circumstantial evidence. Yet, the prosecution submit evidence eluding to your state of mind, then flat out dictate what your state of mind was with anything really supporting it.

Fascism is empowered when normal stuff, like protesting, is deemed illegal, but them selectively enforced. Never trust bad laws that are simply not enforced. This is a danger to freedom. Bad laws must be removed or fixed.

He didn't mention her part blocking Covid funding, the first round with checks, for a week or more. It was reported by her own cheer-leading media that she gave the nod for the Democratic Senators to block the Republican (and likely bipartisan) Covid relief plan at the last moment. They pretended that the Republican's Covid plan was wrong for wanting to alleviate companies from liability, while the government was urging critical companies to go back to work. They also wanted to weasel in some extra money for Democrat cities.

So after blocking the Senate Covid relief, the Democrat majority House under Pelosi put out the same bill, with some nut job extra crap no one would accept tacked on, more than the extra handout to states. Of course, the Republicans rejected it. Pelosi held out for a whole week or more, while her media reported that 'those horrible Republicans were blocking Covid relief.' People suffered and died while Pelosi held out long enough for that to hit the news cycle twice, knowing they will easily re-write history there. Then after the hold out, she cut all the extra crazy stuff off the bill, until it was almost exactly the same Senate bill, submitted it, then of course the Republicans accepted their own bill, despite it be re-labeled as a Democrat Covid relief bill, and it sailed through.

The whole, 'why are you blocking this virtuous bill, with crazy stuff added on no one can except,'....seems to be a common trick. Today's Democrat government shutdown threat if they don't get their way about giving more American money to Ukraine, which is being blamed by the media on Republicans, seems just another form of the same trick.

This article doesn't disprove "my point" at all, that is ridiculous.

My only point was adding a decade missing and misrepresented context to why this government action the article is describing is bad, doesn't help the environment, hurts the already crippled supply chain for critical needs, and is not even feasible. They would need to immediately make emergency exceptions as they learn of more stuff they forgot, when blanket-banning bad sounding things we already slammed with strict regulations. It would be like Biden full blanket-banning just learned leaded gas wasn't good for everyone.

Perovskite is a mineral, but it is also the name of a whole very large group of minerals, describing the crystalline structure their bonded atoms make, of which Perovskite proper, was the first discovered by a Russian by the same name.

Basically, there are Perovskite forms of many different minerals. My vague understanding is that they are usually multiple minerals merged, then crystallized into a new Perovskite version and that there are several that naturally form.

They've been refining use this stuff for similar purposes since at least the 1990's. They've gotten even higher efficiencies, but they were ridiculously too expensive. This new spin on the approach is important, because it gets most of the efficiency, but makes manufacturing it actually affordable....(if everything works out like it seems)

Motorist shoots dead two environmental protesters blocking a road by Zommy in news

[–]SoCo 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The article describes the man not shooting until approached violently by each individual. The first was holding a potential weapon. The second, likely startled him, approaching him shortly after shooting the first, where the man would be rightfully afraid of being attacked by others. This is the main focus for determining self-defense: an immediate perceived danger, which is obvious in both instances as described.

I don't know if Panama is like driveing through East St. Louis, but I have done that before. You don't stop at stop signs or stop lights. If hooligans get in your way and box you in, then you are getting ready to be robbed and murdered. You either get out and start blasting, or hit the gas and plow through them. Your life is in danger. You are only safe while in your car and your car is moving.

This whole article is a lie anyways. It's only purpose is to fool people into thinking these are environmental protesters. They are not. This is a lie to coverup a large protest against government oppression and fleecing of the country by foreign companies coming in to mine copper and other minerals, the local environmental impact that they will endure from it, and the corruption of government officials who allowed the foreign mining companies.

Yeah, I've read the article and dozens more on the same topic, since Obama pulled his stunt. The article strait up lies by saying the Trump administration "undid those" those restrictions. The courts undid the illegal Obama Admin rule. It doesn't mean Obama's intentions weren't good, just they were not accomplished legally through democratic methods.

The water contamination that they are talking about happened between 1950 and the 1980's, where the military based poisoned its people, not really manufacturers. The article dishonestly makes it seem like water contamination is still happening, happened recently, and that factories poisoned military personnel, which isn't true.

This chemical is MASSIVELY regulated now. People who use it typically wear exposure cards. It is treated more strictly than nuclear materials ... to some degrees.

It is just an attempt to mislead the public, pander fake virtuousness, pretend to erase Trump actions, all while hurting Americans and driving prices up. People are much more submissive, when desperate and struggling.

This article tries to act like this is a Republican problem, because of the board members, yet the board members ultimately ignored the citizens, so they have to go.

This was an initiative from the infamous, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who said the investments "will shore up our status as the global hub of mobility and electrification ... We will work with anyone and compete with everyone to keep bringing supply chains of batteries, chips, and electric vehicles home to Michigan."

The bigger problem, is that the Democrats who run the state level government caused this. This kind of thing had bipartisan support until recently, when China linked concerns became prominent, such as Chinese companies trying to buy land near military facilities. Michigan has supported these types of Chinese company deals for the last 30 years, especially within their state's car manufacturing industry. Over $460 billion has flowed between China and Michigan in such deals over the decades.

The Democrat majority Senate Appropriations Committee approved the $175 million to support Gotion Inc., along with a 30-year tax break valued at $540 million, incentives worth about $38 million from Consumers Energy, and two grants totaling $175 million. This was approved after all the Chinese company concerns were known. All 6 Republicans on the committee voted against this, but only 3 Democrats opposed it, while the other 10 Democrats passed it on party lines, 10-9, despite knowing the concerns.

“Extremists in the Michigan GOP have spent weeks promoting baseless conspiracies that only work to block the thousands of good-paying, American jobs Gotion plans to bring to our state,” Michigan Democratic Party Chair Lavora Barnes said in a statement, calling the effort “scare tactics.”

This little township's local board members approved accepting it, likely enticed by the large number of proposed high paying jobs, yet, obviously, this was against their residences' wishes. Board members at this local level rarely align with either political party strongly, but this whole township is strongly Republican, so they are Republican by default.

Is this the beginning of the end of the war in Ukraine? by Drewski in Antiwar

[–]SoCo 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Ukraine is a "send-off".....

Like when you are jerk in high school and trick the mentally slow kid into trying to kick the meanest, biggest, baddest, guy in school right in the balls...then sit back for the show.

You've sent the "send-off" sucker off on a mission that is destined to fail...

While the baddass is curb stomping the slow kid and broken teeth are flowing from the river of blood, you lean down and yell, "you've got him! Your winning, don't stop now!"

Ukraine is the slow kid. They have been financially broke and economically desperate for well over a decade. The US and the UN are the school yard jerks. We've been feeding one dollar bills to Ukraine to do things for our entertainment and benefit. Eat the 8+ year old rock-hard gum from under the seat for $2. Financially wear down our opponent-nations with futile war attempts.

The UN gave Ukraine tons of money to do lame green energy stuff, which throws away the generated electricity. It's only EU taxpayer money and throwing it away like this props up the green energy scam and money laundering system.

It was called a feed-in-tariff (“FiT”) and it was adopted in 2009. Under the FIT policy, energy produced from renewable sources could be sold to the "guaranteed buyer." Ukraine jumped on this financial opportunity and created their own state-owned green energy. The guaranteed buyer was Euro taxes paying for excess clean energy, at market value, even if it cannot be used and was wasted. By the end of 2019, this became unsustainable, and the policy couldn't afford to pay the guaranteed buyer part anymore. By 2020 Ukraine was weened from this free Euro tax money for generating extra renewable energy that no one could use.

The financial crisis snowballed and the US got together with Ukraine to begin public talks about a potential offensive against Russia. We spent a few years pumping money into them, training them, trying to prop them up with a newly created arms manufacturing industry. Broke, and desperate, Ukraine prepared for a send-off mission; to Kamikaze our opponent-nation, Russia, in efforts to inflict a minor financial weakening for us. It would be great publicity for their new arms manufacturing and the upcoming war flea market extravaganza to be held in India.

This also gave cover for destroying the world energy trade, completing the plan to cripple oil, which is a well entrenched market that is extremely hard to make money in, while opening up a new market, which was easy to profit from, scam in many ways, and milk tax payer money incentives, even without a viable product or company plan.

This dual use market-shift also puts large financial pressure on the public, with the hopes of bankrupting and hastening the death of many poverty stricken 'useless mouths to feed,' and squeezing the rest into submission for more rampart losses of freedom, control, and privacy.

We, the US and UN, are planning at tossing massive amounts more money at Ukraine to 'rebuild back green,' as if we haven't done enough...

The irony and hypocrisy, is lost to these people., as well as 1st Amendment trampling and thwarting of legal equal protections. The bill was signed by fake republican governor Rauner, who was simply another corrupt Chicago Democrat who ran as a Republican.

Not really. His testimony destroyed their case, which the judge already corruptly ruled on, making the whole charade look even more stupid. This led the Judge to cut off Trump's testimony many times and force Trump to not completely not answer questions most questions. The Judge told him to be "concise", but he was. The unprepared prosecution was asking very technical business finance questions, expecting a "yes"/"no" answer, but none of them were yes/no questions. Trump has been a business man a very long time and educated the court on how their assumptions were totally wrong and the whole case was a farce. This visibly upset the Judge. Then the judge started yelling at Trump's lawyer like a nutjob for doing her job. Just more entertainment from the clown show.

Using the public's hate for Fox News to remove all Journalism rights in the US continues, as court considers sanctioning for not divulging source by SoCo in news

[–]SoCo[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It has been a long road cultivating this hate for Fox News. It started more than 20 years ago. Fox was miles above all other sources in ratings and all the other sources got together and began relentlessly mocking and bullying Fox News. The public was primed for decades with the notion from its competitors, that Fox News was misleading, for not reporting the spin the other news outlets were all colluding with.

It took a very long time and the public still largely wasn't convinced. When Disney bought in to Fox, with a small non-news portion, everything at Fox News changed. You can't risk the mouse's money by reporting in contradiction to the bully news. Their collective attack would be bad for the brand association. So, Fox News became empty fluff, simply repeating the echo chamber of collusion, using the megaphone affect to manipulate the masses into walking off a cliff like lemmings.

Yet, a good straw man to attack is worth its weight in gold to a fake news site profiting on outrage. Now they continue to beat the dead straw horse, even though it will cost them their own journalistic freedoms. They don't care, they stopped doing journalism a decade ago. They profit from pushing state propaganda and mass collecting private data of users who go to their websites for information.

Brooke said the grand mal seizure happened because she was drinking too much water for her show and was low in sodium.

The public has been blindly and repeatedly urged to drink more water and eat less sodium, urged that this reduces health risks. Yet, low sodium has long term systematic health impacts as well. Our, white-lie and mindless true-isms targeted to the dumb, approach to public medical suggestions is seriously flawed and dangerous.

It reminds me of when my Moderna Covid vaccine gave me serious health problems and an immune disorder, which continues to cripple me years later. While nearly dying from this immune disorder, my concerns about my new found acid reflux damaging my teeth led me to brush too much and too hard damaging my teeth. When I brought up the concern with dentists, they mindlessly told me the true-ism that you should always brush more and can't brush too dentist that wasn't a moron recognized that I was in fact damaging my teeth from brushing too much and helped me regulate my brushing in more safe manor.

Quite frankly, we would be back to the stone age without it....but of course, we'd just fall back to less efficient and more dangerous methods and chemicals, instead.

I'm not sure we could make very many things out of metal without it, at least not precision machined parts. Plastics, adhesives, X-ray film, and ton of chemical manufacturing require it. They all have alternatives, which we've previously stopped using because this was the safest and most efficient.
