Russia To Disconnect From The Internet As Part Of A Planned Test

      The reason for the experiment is to gather insight and provide feedback and modifications to a proposed law introduced in the Russian Parliament in December 2018.

      A first draft of the law mandated that Russian internet providers should ensure the independence of the Russian internet space (Runet) in the case of foreign aggression to disconnect the country from the rest of the internet.

      In addition, Russian telecom firms would also have to install "technical means" to re-route all Russian internet traffic to exchange points approved or managed by Roskomnazor, Russia's telecom watchdog.

      Roskomnazor will inspect the traffic to block prohibited content and make sure traffic between Russian users stays inside the country, and is not re-routed uselessly through servers abroad, where it could be intercepted.

          Today, I was re-elected Precinct Chair for my own full two-year term as Precinct Chair, WCDP Precinct 10-02. It was a good meeting, we welcomed a few new hands, and several old hands...grateful to see all those who showed up ready and committed to turning Wendell, Wake County, and North Carolina blue!

          We today also elected the first African-American to hold a position as an Officer in our Precinct, I was very pleased that she stepped up.

          We selected Delegates to the County Convention and CD-2 Convention.

          This year we will be concentrating on further building our Precinct with volunteers, and the leaders of our future, and recruiting good candidates to run in the Municipal elections - last time, 2017, we had no Democrats on the ballot! I refuse to accept this, by the numbers, my Precinct is 43 percent D, 28.3 percent R and 28.3 percent UNA/Indep. and 0.4 percent other minor Parties.

          But it does not look that way from the ground level, when we have no Democrats even running in our Municipal elections, as was the case in 2017. We got work to do...and I am grateful to be chosen by my fellow Precinct members to lead in this effort.

          I congratulate all of my fellows who were also elected officers, one was a returning member, like myself, and two new faces.

          More Chickens Coming Home To Roost. Tax Cut That Isn't A Cut At All!!

              Taxes make up probably 70% of government income. Problem: Government is administered primarily by the wealthy, none of whom relishes parting with any of their hard earned millions and billions. "I earned it. It's mine. I'm not giving it away. And that's that!!"

              The federal government could soon pay more in interest on its debt than it spends on the military, Medicaid or children’s programs.

              The run-up in borrowing costs is a one-two punch brought on by the need to finance a fast-growing budget deficit, worsened by tax cuts and steadily rising interest rates that will make the debt more expensive.

              [MN note: Friends, despite Trump's grandstanding and bluster, China economics is the least of America's financial worries. There are nearly 200 countries in the UN, and America does business with most of them at some level. America's beef with China is that China is doing too well for Washington's comfort. China's workers and China's government are united in China's growth and development, while America is a house divided, thanks largely to Trump's mismanagement of America, Inc.]

              I am a Republican voter. I just did our taxes.



              The @GOP tax bill cost my family THOUSANDS of dollars this year on our return due to changes, thereby hitting us with the LARGEST tax increase of our lives.



              We are middle-class homeowners, and you raised our taxes.



              Infuriating!

              I have to pay $2000 MORE in taxes this year! What happened?? I voted for you and thought you were fixing this, not making it worse!? I thought I would get money back this year!?

              Voted for you . Family of
              2 hard working N.Y. cops. Did taxes for years we would pay more and get a refund at the end of the year to help pay debt . First time in 30 years We had to pay more in Federal
              Taxes. I’m disgusted

              @POTUS thank you for screwing the middle class with your tax reform. I have never in my life, I’m 49 years old, had to pay into the IRS until this year. We have a combined income of 150,000. The middle class voted for you. I will not make the same mistake twice.

              @RepDonBacon I just finished my taxes and we’re paying an extra 4k this year since exemptions are gone. With a High D HC plan, this has not been a good year. I voted for you twice now. What’s the plan?

              @realDonaldTrump I voted for you, and believe in the things you are doing, but you screwed us middle class with taxes. I can’t itemize or anything. How about a flat tax and get rid of earned income credit. Some don’t earn income but get more back in taxes for having baby’s.

              I voted for you the first time but after you screwed me on my get tax break I won’t vote for you again especially after I started on my 2018 return it’s a joke the taxes you are keeping from a working person good luck in 2020



              — Shelby Kuh (@ShelbyKuh) February 2, 2019




              I voted for @realdonaldtrump, but that unfortunately that means I have to pay higher taxes.



              — Joshua Curtis (@dcjchris) January 26, 2019



              Worse tax return I had in a decade! I admit I voted for @realDonaldTrump but he has officially lost my vote for 2020.



              — A9N7G3 (@973angie) January 23, 2019



              Wait til you file your taxes. Middle class just lost half their return. Lowest refund I have ever had and I am 50yrs old. No wall and now this tax reform sucks too!! Starting to doubt Trump. I voted for him and trusted him too.

                  Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a product of Bush2 , March 2003, Iraq invasion era, that false pretense, an aspect of the surveillance state, rationalized and authorized as a hunt for terrorists.

                  Let's pause to mention Edward Snowden, that invisible man, who was he exactly?

                  In 1933 or thereabouts, the SS, etc., was rolling, their targets, so called subversives, Jews, any suspect in their eyes. This bureaucratic entity, ICE, reminds some of us of that possibly creeping historic lesson: Locking up asylum seekers and calling them criminals, where does it end?

                  The surveillance state is a dangerous game. Who ICE takes away next, who knows?
