Organizations that I felt the need to comment on (more often on the negs than the positives). But there's good/bad in all.

Summary
These are just good/bad or ugly (or a little bit of all) that I felt the need to comment on. I tend to write (vent) more on negative organizations, or aspects of them -- because their PR or others usually do a good job of fluffing up the good, thus balance requires the negs. Or I just need to rant cathartic. But I do get the balances and the positives as well.

Anti-American • [18 items]

  • Alt-Economics - These are alternate-reality economics that Fake Economists (usually leftist polemics) tell each other and their base. AKA Leftonomics. Never blame on malice that which is more easily explained by incompetence. But when you are an "expert" that knows the facts and repeat the fabrications anyways? Then malice (dishonesty) is all that's left. They know better.
  • Alt-Equality - There is inequality and injustice in the world and our nation. But America is in the top handful of countries in the world as far as tolerance and diversity. But the progressive left is addicted to "progress" (change), not balance, or knowing when to stop/slow/moderate. So they exaggerate the wrongs, and exaggerate the delusion that if we give up enough liberty, Democrats will fix it.
  • Alt-History - There's real history, and there's "politically correct" alternate history. If you believe any of the left narratives, without understanding the context, whole truth, what they're leaving out or just lying about, then you don't know real history. I first learned this in 5th Grade, and my life was never the same.
  • Alt-Liberty - Two different Americas: one that's striving for more liberty, and another that's striving for less. Since it's hard to convince people that less liberty is good, they distort meanings and pretend the opposite is true, "you can't have liberty because of corporations, the rich, etc", you need to take Liberty away to make things more fair and free.
  • Alt-People - There's real people, and the popular/left version of people that often have very little in common. Very little. Events/actions omitted, others imagined, we often live in parallel universes. And if they prefer the myth to reality, we will remain that way.
  • American Exceptionalism - American Exceptionalism is about the first modern Democracy, the first Constitution and Bill of Rights, recognizing that Humans have rights and grant governments temporary power and not the other way around, the least imperialistic, the most charitable, we fought wars to free others, creating more of the world's innovations, first to go to the moon, and so on. That's not jingoism, that's history.
  • Betsy Ross Shoes - Nike rolled back Patriotic Americana Shoes, with the Betsy Ross flag, because Comrade Colin Kaepernick didn't like them. These shoes had an American Flag, created by an abolitionist, and Colin claims he isn't againts White People or the American Flag, but he protested them out of existence anyways.
  • Black Conspiracy Theology - I'm not black, but my Step-Dad is and I lived and worked in black communities. I saw the disenfranchisement, distrust, and their gossip circles and echo chambers. (Rumors and conspiracies over facts). And the DNC either starts, fosters or panders to many of these wacky views of America or the world, feeding the hate/unrest for votes.
  • Black Lives Matter - The truth is the KKK has a history of less violence and influence than the BLM since BLM was founded. BLM tries to make martyrs of Black Felons, undermine our criminal justice and advance criminality, instability, and racial division. The ultimate goal is destablization of democracy, so more Marxist redistribution (injustice) can be advanced.
  • Dumb Democrats and Evil Republicans - Democrat know they want to help people; so they think anyone who doesn't like their ideas on how to do so must be evil. Republicans know they want to help people; so when Democrats call them evil (or greedy, racist, etc), and they know better, they know that Democrats are just stupid. Republicans know Democrats are dumb, because Democrats think Republicans are evil.
  • Is the left Anti-American? - Is the left Anti-American? Yes. Does that mean they're less American? As citizens? No. As patriots? Yes. The left doesn't really love America as it is, or its history, even the term (and reality of) American Exceptionalism drives them batty. They love America for the potential to turn it into something they could be proud of: the Progressive USSA.
  • Nike - Nike decided to go all corporate slacktivism with a variety of efforts that don't seem to work out well for them. I certainly don't disagree with their right to hold a stupid opinion, but while we should all have free speech (and expression), we shouldn't have freedom from the consequences of those stupid opinions.
  • North Atlantic Treaty Organization - While this organization served a purpose, you can't make people care about things that are good for them. So Europe got fat, lazy and complacent about external threats. They both relied on the U.S. to provide their defense, and resented us for our patriarchal role. But that doesn't mean they're mature and ready to step up on their own.
  • Politicizing Sports - Progressives seem unhappy when anyone else is happy and patriotic. They see some injustice in the world (real or imagined) and they feel compelled to lecture and spoil anyone else's good time. Nothing demonstrates this more than the recent politicization of sports, alienating much of the audience, trying to ruin it for everyone.
  • Adam Schiff - Schiffty Schiff is full of Schitt. Obnoxious, Liar, Idiot. His professional career will be defined by trying to undermine our Democracy through Scampeachment and the idea that we should deny due process and invent crimes to oust political enemies and thwart the will of the people. Is there anything more Un-American than that?
  • The Star-Spangled Banner - Post-modernism is the idea that everything is flawed and should be remade in a progressive (usually Marxist) image, starting with language. They found a rarely heard 3rd stanza of the Star Spangled banner and a line mocking the British for impressment sailors. But it used the old colloquialism "hireling and slave", and ignorant assume racism.
  • Toiletgate - AOC goes to a border facility and claims the agents were "physically & sexually threatening towards me", and that the women in cells had to drink out of the toilets. It was exposed that she screamed at agents, and the toilets had integrated fountains.
  • War - America is always wrong in War, unless Democrats started it and mismanaged it. If there's a way to twist or distort the History against America, chances are there'll be a ton of anti-American (Soviet) and Democrat supporters. Russia called them "useful idiots", but I'm unconvinced of their usefulness.

Organizations, Bias • [18 items]

ACLU
New ACLU Logo 2017.svg
A once reliable non-partisan Civil Liberties organization, they devolved to align with the DNC over civil liberties. You can't be for minority rights and not for individual rights, as the smallest minority is one... yet, when given the choice, they often choose collective rights over individuals, support racism to fix racism (affirmative action), and ignore parts of the constitution they don't like.
Bloomberg
Bloomberg.png
A privately held financial, software, data, and media company headquartered in Midtown Manhattan, founded by Michael Bloomberg in 1981.
CNN
FNN.png
1980 Ted Turner started CNN to put his left center spin on "the news", along with his later marriage to Hanoi Jane Fonda. He wanted to be the 24 hour, more left version of the already left of center news outlets like CBS, ABC, NBC, and rather than fill airtime with deeper stories, he'd use far left op-ed fluff.
FactCheck.org
Factcheckers.jpeg
Annenberg's FactCheck.org is another far-left front posing as a non-partisan fact checker. They take money from Facebook, then spin stories/facts left, giving Facebook cover for censoring "disinformation" aka uncomfortable truths they don't like. History shows that FactCheck.org was partisan fraud for a long time back.
Huffington Post
HuffPo001.jpeg
HuffPo is a mockery of new journalism. The rules to get published seem to be (1) be popular (2) be wrong on everything you post (3) be sensitive to any corrections (4) have a flock of trolls. They are proof that popularity has no correlation to quality of information.
NPR
National Public Radio logo.svg
State dept. and Air America in the 1930's was infiltrated by communists. McCarthy showed that they never left, they just moved around. NPR is evidence that this is as true today as it was back then. I listened to them for years on my commute, and could count a few times a day they did leftist spin, and can think of no examples of them taking a conservative or moderate position.
New York Times
NYTbullshit.png
A never great News Agency has become a shadow of their former self: admittedly biased by their own Ombudsman and editors. Occasionally good content can't make up for their more frequent bad, or their willingness to deceive, commit lies of omission, or present things in a biased way. (Never trusting their readership with the whole truth).
Occupy Democrats
Occupy-Democrats.png
They exist to take things out of context, lie, distort, and feel that any means to their ends is justified (of furthering the power of government over the people). At least based on their actions. If you can't look at anything they post, and find at least 10 things wrong with it, then you're not qualified (critical thinker) to have an adult discussion on any topic.
PolitiFact
PolitiFact logo.svg
They have a long history of (a) cherry picking data to fit a leftist narrative (b) oversampling the right (selection bias) (c) being pedantic to find excuses to correct the right on technicalities or to excuse/ignore the left on much broader/worse errors (d) not correcting errors when found (e) attacking those that point out the errors. They're a partisan mouthpiece for the far left, pretending to be non-partisan.
Politico
POLITICOLOGO.svg
Left-of-center John F. Harris, and the slightly less left-of-center Jim VandeHei got funding for a DC tabloid journalism (rumor mongering) on the DC set. Sort of what HuffingtonPost was to Hollywood, but only for DC. Like reddit or twitchy; lots of crap but they allow turds layers from both sides, and you can find some treasures in the sewage.
SPLC
SPLC Logo.png
The Southern Poverty Law Center is a far left site created to fear-monger for money. Their platform is used to attack anyone on the right, and by their own standards, they would qualify as a hate-group... if they applied their standards to themselves.
Scientific American
Scientific American logo.svg
A left biased popular "Science" magazine that occasionally lets a good article or two past their woke staff. They do have stuff worth reading and I read it. But if there's a bias, it'll always be left.
Snopes
Snopes (website) logo.png
Snopes was created by California couple Barbara and David Mikkelson to covert alt.folklore.urban newsgroup into a website. Despite a cabal of liberal editors, most of Snopes isn't that bad... but mostly fair is synonymous with unfair, and it is far from the paragon of objectivity some pretend. Virtually all errors or biases lean left, thus all sources that rely on them lean the same way.
The Atlantic
TheAtlantic.jpg
A far-left magazine that occasionally lets a good article or two through. I had some hope when they hired the prolific conservative intellectual, Kevin Williamson, but then they fired him for thoughtcrime of having once written a pro-life article, showing that they do not value diversity of thought at the Atlantic.
USA Today
ChainsawBayonet.png
USAToday has a long history of dumb, and they should have been renamed USSA (United Socialist States of America) because that seems to be their bend/lean. But here's an example of their dumb.
Wall Street Journal
WSJ Logo.svg
Wall Street Journal used to be a New York finance paper, that became another paper. They have a little better reputation as a centrist paper, but they're still in New York, thus they're kind of hit or miss. Some good reporting, some bad... some stuff to irk both sides. They often provide counter-balance to the NYT or WaPo. But have their misses too.
Washington Post
WaPo.png
A once great paper, now a liberal fake news rag that looks more like Bezos Blog (or the DNC's blog) than an objective Newspaper. To be fair, WaPo was always walking in the Grey Lady's (NYT's) shadow, and Jeff Bezos acquisition didn't change much... now that the NYT in the mud, it's no surprise that WaPo is crawling in the sewer. Here is a partial list of falsehoods, embarrassments, and mistakes.
Wikipedia
Wokepedia.png
Wikipedia is both hit and miss, with a lot more hits than misses. I reference it a lot, because most articles are pretty good or good enough. But a few are very biased, and virtually all bias leans far left. Usually it's more lies of omission and not offering both sides. So they are referencable, but the most interesting stuff is often omitted, or in the talk section.

Facebook
FacebookStandards.jpg
I want a social network that gives me control of what I see and share. Zuckerberg thinks ruthlessly stumbling on to lucky timing is the same thing as being really smart, and the world would be a better place if he ran it. Dunning-Kruger gets inflated by narcism and being surrounded by yes-men. Then he got political, and made him an enemy of Democracy.
NFL
NFL Woke.jpg
The NFL used to be all about a football monopoly. Then the most ignorant players started rising up to politicize the sport. Instead of recognizing this would alienate the audience, the management went along. And the ratings, viewership and love of the sport, all decayed -- which is what the Marxist puppet-masters wanted all along. Nothing above the state/party and remaking us into the USSA.
NPR

Tech, Organizations • [10 items]

Adobe
Adobe logo and wordmark (2017).svg
These are a few articles (stories) on my experiences as an Adobe employee for couple of decades. I like the company and the people. All companies have quirks, these are some of the amusing or memorable experiences/observations. No slams, just more journaling life experiences.
Amazon
AmazonLogoCube.png
I was neither advocate nor foe of Amazon, but they converted me to foe through censorship and new CEO's douchebaggery. I was OK with better selection at lower prices, but their fees/costs of shipping killed some of that. Then their censorship, partisan sponsorships/politics worked against them (for me).
Apple
Apple logo black.svg
A list of various articles and topics of discussion around Apple. Since they're a secretive company (and I've been an insider), I tend to avoid opining on a lot of things about them, out of respect for their desire and right to control their own messaging. So I tend to only focus on the trivial for a reason.
Belkin
Belkin.jpeg
Belkin/Linksys/Wemo: American manufacturers of consumer electronics: including routers, iPod and iPhone accessories, mobile computing accessories, surge protectors, network switches, hubs, (USB and computer network) cables, KVM switches, racks and enclosures, and other peripherals.
Facebook

Zuckerberg thinks ruthlessly stumbling on to lucky timing is the same thing as being really smart, and the world would be a better place if he ran it. Dunning-Kruger gets inflated by narcism and being surrounded by yes-men. Then he got political, and made him an enemy of Democracy.
Google
GoogleEvil.png
In 1995, two 20-something Ph.D. students from Stanford were looking for something to do their dissertations on, and decided that they should focus on a Web crawler. They found funding, a revenue stream based on advertising, and became a Unicorn (a multi-billion dollar company). Their saga from College Dormitory Culture to anti-American Corporate hate-Cult began.
Nextdoor
NextdoorLogo green.png
Thought geo-local, no-anonymity, and dictatorial moderation would make a different type of Social Media platform. And it might, if it wasn't run by leftist asshats from SF. As it is, just a bunch of wokescolds censoring and irritating people in most markets. The false civility and double standards of leftist PC thought-police who couldn't make it at Twitter.
Open Offices
MissCubicle.png
Planners decided that if Google/Facebook/Twitter succeeded in spite of a horrendously distracted working environment, then everyone should suffer. Corporate America (especially Tech) started shifting to Open Office to the annoyance of tech workers everywhere. This was sold as "more collaborative", but distracting is more accurate.
Tik Tok
Tik Tok Logo.png
A short-form video platform owned by Chinese company ByteDance, founded in 2016, with lots of pranks, stunts, tricks, jokes, and entertainment. Since China has laws allow it to spy on users, this causes concerns for people in the Free World (Americans). For example, they could track soldiers locations, or backgrounds and metadata can reveal secret information.
Wink
Wink Logo.svg
American software and hardware company that does smart home devices. During the middle of a COVID pandemic they went from paid to subscription only, with 7 days notice to customers. Pay the extortion or their products became useless. Users were going to be irked either way, but the way they handled it was guaranteed to cause maximum irritation and alienation
