Since Trump's TV induced Tweet about flag burning, there's been an edit war at Wikipedia over Hillary Clinton's involvement with a bill that would ban flag burning. Currently, it reads:

Quote

The Flag Protection Act of 2005 was a proposed United States federal law introduced in the United States Senate at the 109th United States Congress on October 24, 2005, by Senator Bob Bennett (R-Utah) and co-sponsored by Senator Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.). Later co-sponsors included Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Thomas Carper (D-Del.).[1]


But there's been an attempt to replace her name with someone named Bob the Tomato. Or something. In any case, if you're tired of Wikipedia, there's new online encyclopedia called Infogalactic: Planetary Knowledge Core.

Quote

Infogalactic is an Internet-based, free-content encyclopedia project that is a dynamic fork of Wikipedia and improves upon the online encyclopedia's model of openly editable content. Infogalactic's pages are interlinked in order to connect the user to related pages with additional information, and are categorized in a variety of ways, including Relativity, Notability, and Reliability to allow the user to prioritize his personalized perspective.

Infogalactic is written collaboratively by volunteers who contribute and edit without compensation. Anyone with Internet access can create and make changes to Infogalactic articles, except in limited cases where editing is restricted to prevent disruption or vandalism. Users can contribute anonymously, under a pseudonym, or with their real identity.

The foundational principles by which Infogalactic operates are very different from the Five Pillars of Wikipedia. These principles are known as the Seven Canons of Infogalactic.

Infogalactic does not share the highly centralized structure of Wikipedia or the ideological dogma of the Wikimedia Foundation. The primary requirements are for the information contributed to be true, relevant, and verifiable, rather than cited from a so-called “published reliable source”, since experience has proven how reliance upon the latter can be easily gamed by editors and administrators alike. There is no culture of notability, ideology, or deletionism at Infogalactic. The addition of perspective filters and two levels of Context and Opinion to every page means that the average editor's contribution is much less likely to be deleted for political reasons or fall victim to edit wars over controversial pages.

Infogalactic is designed around the idea that the user should be permitted to decide what information is relevant to him, not 500 ideologically-driven thought police.

Infogalactic is genuinely committed to becoming the Planetary Knowledge Core. In practical terms, that means corporate and autobiographical information is welcomed, so long as the information contributed abides by the principles laid out in the Seven Canons. Advertising, marketing, and sales-related materials are not allowed, but employees are encouraged to provide factual information such as locations, open hours, and contact details on the relevant page about their company.


If you're sick of Twitter banning the Right for saying things they disagree with while allowing the Muslim Brotherhood free rein and suspending the accounts of users who expose pedophiles, there's Gab.

How different is Gab? They're not a Social Justice platform:

Quote

Mother Jones to Andrew Torba of Gab: "I’d appreciate if you could grant me access to Gab so that I can observe and interact with the alt-right. I’d be interested in interviewing you about your motivations for creating Gab."

Andrew Torba: "Wait your two weeks. We don't interview with fake news sites."


If you're ready to leave Twitter, want an alternative in addition to it, or have been wanting to use something like it but not Twitter, follow me at @MrNaron.

There's also a new browser that doesn't share your meta-data called Brave. I've downloaded it, but I don't have much to report about it other than the fact that it imported my Chrome settings before I could blink.

Now all we need is a Facebook alternative because its never been tried before.

World's Shortest Movie Reviews
American Sniper: Bradly Cooper=Best Actor
The Arroyo: Had a Pureflix feel to the acting, but well shot. Great conservative movie.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies: As usual, the third installment is the best--having an ending really helped.
The Maze Runner: The perfect metaphor for moving to Detroit.
Dumb and Dumber To: More jokes. Cruder jokes. Someone gets hooked on crack.
Snowpiercer: Joe Biden's idea of heaven. Everyone on the Earth living on a train. Captain America admits he was going to eat Billy Elliot.
Hunger Games: Catching Fire: This is what the world would look like without college football.
Interstellar 2001:A Space Odyssey with a soul. You will get very thirsty, so hydrate before viewing.
When the Game Stands Tall Proves my theory that it's worse when you win.
Guardians of the Galaxy Make a fun adventure movie about space and make a ton of money. Who knew? I mean, besides that Lucas guy.
Blended I don't get the "Billy Madison is genius, Blended is crap" review. It's as good as any other Sandler movie.
Mom's Night Out Hilarious. You will laugh unless you drive a black BMW and watch sunsets at the golf course.
The Amazing Spiderman 2 This series is still better than the Toby McGuire one. I actually cared if Gwen Stacy died.
Odd Thomas I understand the critics who didn't like the uneven tone. Way uneven. Still worth watching on Netflix.
Star Trek Into DarknessGood movie. Please, for the love of tribbles, let old Spock die.
Grown Ups 2 Critics, attack. Whatever you want to say about this one, I'm okay with it.
Thor: The Dark World Still very, very good. But I'd like an entire Thor movie set just in Asgard.
