I care less about businesses collecting my info because I'm among the most difficult to market to. I'm very unsusceptible to tactics that would cause me to make a purchase based on emotion or convenience. Advertising is mostly wasted on me except for informing me that a product exists, and I seek out least marketed goods in general. Boycott any company running "You deserve" ads.



Well, my marriage certificate has "nunya" listed for my occupation. I had no idea when I applied for one that it would go on some official looking certificate. It annoys my wife about as much as it delights me. While individuals can judge me however they wish, the government has no business categorizing me as anything except a citizen of the US. It's appalling to me that I must apply for a marriage license. I'm not asking the government for permission to marry, and I regard their certificate as nothing. I have a natural right to associate and enter into contract how I see fit.
Advertising is only the ostensible reason.

As to the marriage license. You’ll want an understanding of law a great deal deeper than what’s on display. A married couple is a form of person. Not two. To start. It’s not a “freedom of association” problem.

Opting-in would be a nice option.
Ahh, to beard the lion in his lair.

Was this one of those “had to be there” events? The moment of recognition.

Does the John Currey mural depiction of abolitionist John Brown apply as to tenor? That Old Testament moment.

Sure brought a smile to this Texan. (Yuh jus doan mess with cotton mouths, feral hogs and such. Thought ya’ll knew better).

Tesla. Cut the subsidy. Why am I supporting women not my wife re health care, or persons of a high income so they can have this toy? The benefit to society in each isn’t qualified. It’s wishful.

Actually, I was too stunned at the time to say anything. It was taken at a reunion with the club founder from 1984 at a local tavern.

There's been another meeting since though, where I did object to being fed to The Algorithm. The reasoning given was we were in a public place and blah, blah, and my suggestion to denounce and divest Facebook was shouted down.

I'll be back for the April meeting — you bet. They haven't held elections for years, it's a Chairman Lennox fan club at this point. I think they should rename it the iPhone and iPad Consumers Group.

Wear a mustache and some dark shades. Have I said too much already?

Cool

Nah.... sign up for everything you can in his facebook account including $25 donation to some odd ball fringe association or express interest in 7th day Adventists.

Otherwise you become just a pariah to be shunned.

Back to our regular scheduled program.

The President-for-lifes? I wouldn't touch Facespook with his ten-foot pole. Now I think I'd better skip a meeting, in case a contingent from Ecomodder tries to crash the gate.

Here's a nice hit piece on the Model 3 by those obvious shorters at Seekingalpha:

Tesla is ramping up the Model 3 production again.

They registered 7708 new VINs this week: https://electrek.co/2018/04/06/tesla...s-record-vins/

The Bloomberg tracker also shows record weekly production numbers, with a 3 week projection of over 2000 cars a week.
That projection is based on VINs spotted in the wild and has proven to be pretty reliable thus far. It means Tesla must have been building over 2000 cars a week for some time now.

Even so, a 7.708 bump is exceptional. Especially since they've already bumped the VINs by 6500 in 4 steps less than 3 weeks back.

I wonder what they are up to.
Since the ides of March the VINs were put on the road within 3 weeks of registration.
To maintain that relationship they now need to produce no less than 5000 cars a week.

They have to. There are penalties tied to production levels
