|Hi Mike Williamson,|
|Important changes that may impact your monetization and content discoverability are coming.┬á┬áHAVE YOU COCKSUCKERS EVER PAID ANYONE ANYTHING?|
|Starting today, all creators are required to tell us if their content is┬ámade for kids┬áin order to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and/or other applicable laws. To help you comply, we are┬áintroducing a new audience setting in YouTube Studio.┬á┬áOR WHAT?|
|Depending on the amount of┬ámade for kids┬ácontent on your channel, you can set your audience at either the channel level or the video level. For those who are setting at the channel level, it is just one click. I HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA WHAT MY LEVEL OR SETTINGS ARE. I UPLOAD SHIT FROM TIME TO TIME. PEOPLE LOOK AT IT FROM TIME TO TIME.|
|These changes are required as part of a settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and NY Attorney General, and will help you comply with the ChildrenΓÇÖs Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and/or other applicable laws.┬á┬áCOPPA.┬á HOW CLEVER. NOT.┬á YOU'RE THE CHANNEL, YOU HAVE THE LAWYERS.┬á COMPLY AWAY.┬á AND FUCK NEW YORK. THEY'RE FASCIST, ANTI-AMERICAN COCKSUCKERS ANYWAY.┬á VIOLATING THEIR RULES IS A MORAL DUTY. PS: I DON'T LIVE IN NEW YORK.|
|We know that these changes wonΓÇÖt be easy for some creators, and that this required change is going to take some time getting used to. But these are important steps to take to ensure compliance with the law.┬á YADDA YADDA GO FUCK YOURSELF.|
|Please read more below to understand your legal obligations and the impact these choices may have on your channel.┬áSURE, IT'S BEEN HILARIOUS SO FAR.|
|What is changing?|
|Starting today, all creators are required to mark their content as┬ámade for kids┬áor┬ánot made for kids┬áin YouTube Studio.┬áOR WHAT? BASED ON WHAT?|
|Starting in January: we will limit the data we collect on┬ámade for kids┬ácontent to comply with the law. This means we will disable personalized ads on this content (which affects revenue for creators making content for kids), as well as certain features like comments, notifications and others.┬áNote:┬áYou may see some small changes as we experiment and refine our systems over the next few months.┬á┬áSO YOU'RE GOING TO REDUCE INCOME AND FUCK OVER PEOPLE WHO ARE ACTUALLY TRYING TO MAKE STUFF FOR KIDS. GEE, I WONDER WHAT THE OUTCOME OF THAT WILL BE?|
|For a list of affected features, go┬áhere.|
|Why is this happening?┬á┬áBECAUSE THE TRUMP ASSMINISTRATION ARE AS BIG OF CUCKFAGS AS THE PREVIOUS DOZEN ADMINISTRATIONS.|
|These changes are required as part of a settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and NY Attorney General, and will help you comply with the ChildrenΓÇÖs Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and/or other applicable laws.┬áSORRY, I WAS NOT PARTY TO THIS LAWSUIT OR CASE OR WHATEVER. ALSO, FIRST AMENDMENT, BITCHES.┬á I'LL POST WHAT I WANT. IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, TAKE IT DOWN.┬á IT'S YOUR PLATFORM, YOUR PROBLEM.|
|Regardless of your location, we are required to ask you to set your videos as┬ámade for kids┬áif they fall into that category, please make these settings as soon as possible.┬áNO. GO FUCK YOURSELF.|
|WeΓÇÖll also use machine learning systems to help us find content that is clearly┬ámade for kids. But do not rely on our systems to set content for you -- like all automated systems, ours are not perfect.┬áFINALLY, AN ACCURATE STATEMENT.|
|If you donΓÇÖt set your content or if we detect error or abuse, we may set your audience for you. If you fail to set your content accurately you may face compliance issues with the FTC or other authorities, and we may take action on your YouTube account.┬áTHEN THERE'S NO ADVANTAGE FOR ME TO DO ANYTHING, IS THERE? I'LL LET YOU JUMP ON THAT GRENADE.|
|What is ΓÇ£made for kidsΓÇ¥ content?|
|We cannot provide specific legal advice, but according to the FTCΓÇÖs guidance on COPPA, a video is child directed (which we call ΓÇ£made for kidsΓÇ¥) if:|
|Learn more about the factors that determine if your content is considered as┬ámade for kids┬áhere.┬á┬áNAH.|
|We know this wonΓÇÖt be easy for some creators, and that this required change is going to take some getting used to. While we cannot provide legal advice, we are committed to helping you through this transition.┬á┬áIF YOU CAN'T PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE, YOU'RE JUST SOME HELPFUL FRIEND ON THE INTERNET. THAT NEVER WORKS OUT WELL.|
|You can learn more about your own obligations under┬áThe Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)┬áand the tools we are building to support you┬áhere.┬áGO SUCK START A SHOTGUN.|

I only knew Butch by his first time.┬á He was a regular dealer here at the Indy 1500 Gun and Knife show. He looked 65 when I met him in 1995. He looked 65 in June of this year. He was in hospice for the August show, and the cancer reached his brain and killed him in September.
Butch sold gun parts, and knew every part of every gun ever made. You'd hold up a gun.┬á "I need this."
He'd say, "Middle screw for the sideplate of a Smith Model 57." Turn around, open an old wooden drawer on his rack, and pull one out.┬á┬á
You'd hold up a piece you found and ask, "What is this?"
"That's the fore end latch spring for a Stevens Model 94. From the bend, I'm guessing it was 20 gauge."
There's at least a dozen guns here that work because he had parts I needed, and a half dozen shotguns I put together from stripped receivers and parts from his tables.
RIP, Butch. You can never be replaced.
His daughter has taken over the business. I hope she's as successful as he was.

Partly because they've created a society where they have most of it by their flawed definition.
Privilege comes from the Latin meaning "Private Law." So in a literal sense, unless there are laws to some effect, favoring or harming others, there is no privilege. For example, if there was a dedicated driving lane for those of a certain class, that would be privilege. I'd also be part of it and sneer at you inferior drivers, because honestly, that really should be a thing.
Actor, Action, Patient, Agent:
The ACTOR acts out.┬á The ACTION affects the PATIENT, for positive or negative. An AGENT is anyone capable of acting.┬á In a hypothetical extreme privilege society, the PATIENT has no AGENCY and cannot fight the ACTION.┬á Slavery in the antebellum South is a good example of this. Slaves had very little agency whatsoever, and when they did, it was usually through their owner by proxy with no personal say in the matter.
But that's not the world we live in now.┬á The law officially applies to everyone equally. Now, enforcement varies, and it usually works to the advantage of the wealthy and celebrities of ANY DEMOGRAPHIC.
But if, let's say, a cop and a judge decide to charge and sentence two people differently, based on race, religion, political affiliation.┬á The PATIENTS of these ACTIONS don't have much AGENCY to change the ACTORS' intentions. Possibly a better lawyer or publicity can change things, but there's no official strata, no, "Hey, you can't do that to me, I have this card that says ___" (Well, sometimes politicians and cops have such a card. Foreign diplomats do to an extent.┬á But it's exceptionally rare for anyone else.)
"They treated you better, YOU HAVE PRIVILEGE!"
No, I fucking don't. And by claiming so, YOU have just diverted the ACT from the ACTOR to me, one of the PATIENTS. ┬á"You got treated better! You are evil!" Wrong. The ACTORS did the wrongdoing. You and I are both PATIENTS.┬á You are literally arguing that if you get punched in the face and I don't, that it's because I'm the bad guy, not the asshole who's punching people.
Stop with the bullshit claims of PRIVILEGE for the patients of the action, and go after the fucking ACTORS. Because every time you accuse someone else of "privilege" for actions totally beyond their control, you piss them off and make it even harder to go after the ACTORS who cause the problems.

God, what a dumpster fire.
Greta is home-schooled, so the BS claim that "she turned her parents around on the climate" is BS.┬á They had to allow it, feed it, and encourage it. Though of course, they taught her a lot of propaganda. No actual science like the chemistry of carbon sequestration, thermodynamics, electromagnetic frequency absorption, etc.
They claim she's Asperger's, but apparently that's her younger sister. Greta looks more like a victim of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.┬á Just how many wild parties did her "opera singer" mother go to?
Then, she's vegan, which in children is provably damaging to brain development and drops your IQ. Add that to the above, and this teenager is credibly an idiot studying to be a moron.
And what is her message?
"You have to do something."
Sure, kid. This is important to you. You're smart, right? So I assume you've studied something useful and have a proposal on how to reduce consumption? Or increase efficiency? Or reduce waste? Even a fraction of a percent will matter. So, whatchya got?┬á Nothing?┬á Well, then shut the fuck up, the adults are talking.
You see, lots of teenagers HAVE done credible research, into decay processes, efficiencies, even curves and trends. All you've done is whine.┬á And as far as your "stolen childhood," you can go back to it any time you choose.┬á Unlike children who are sex slaves in the third world, forced to fight in tribal conflicts, or work grueling hours in sweatshops to help feed their family. You're just about the single most white-privileged little bitch on the planet. Shut the fuck up, and go to your room. You're not getting dinner.
Of course, that would be a vegan dinner, so there's not much to miss.
I'll point out here that that attitude is TEXTBOOK "liberal."┬á "X is a problem, do something!" "We're doing Y." "Y is all wrong! YOU RUINED MY LIFE!" "Okay, we're doing Z." "CAN'T YOU EVER GET IT RIGHT? DO SOMETHING ELSE!"
And the predictable response is:
"Shame on you for attacking a child."
Well, were people attacking a child, it is true that would be wrong.┬á┬á But that's not what is happening here.
First, if you stick yourself into an adult conversation, as a young adult, you should be expected to be treated like an adult. This means you should have education, presentation, a description of a problem, and a proposed solution. Otherwise, yes, you may get treated like a child.
If a child kicks my leg, they get disciplined. This is not an "attack." It is a response.
The things subhuman "liberal" shitbags did to comedian Mini-AOC, complete to death threats, is shameful. ┬áFabricating an attack on a teenage boy at an abortion protest (And I'm on the opposite side from him), and trying to claim he was the aggressor, and to destroy his future is shameful.┬á
Pointing and laughing at an ignorant, underage troll, who was so carefully imported, scripted, and propped in front of cameras is just normal politics.
Now, Greta and her whole presentation are carefully crafted. I want you to consider this parallel:
There is a short video that shows an Israeli man revving his engine through a group of presumably Palestinian teenagers. What a monster!
Of course, if you view the five seconds before the "Attack," it turns out they were throwing really big rocks at his car and trying to jam the undercarriage with a bigger rock.
If you find the two minutes of video before THAT, you see where they're being coached by an adult, provided with a pile of rocks, and cameras set up to capture this "hate crime."
You can find the same in the former Irish Troubles, in Iraq, Afghanistan, other places.┬á Behind the "hate crime," you find manipulated terrorism, using children as the actors because they're more easily manipulated, and you get to play victim cards for them.
Greta's parents, her handlers, indeed the entire liberal apparatus are terrorists. They are willing to use a child to do their dirty work, attack you for responding to the child, and insist you're the bad guy for not giving them what they want. (And in that latter way, liberals are pretty much like children themselves. "But I waaaaant it! It's not faaiiir! Give it to meeee!")
A smart polity does not deal with terrorists. It exterminates them. It is far past time that civilized society stops tolerating liberal terrorism and ends it.
And it starts by telling Greta Goebbels to shut her face, and her abusive parents to be the ones who are ashamed, and then take her away for her own safety. She deserves better than to be the puppet of terrorists.
And we're going to need a bigger helicopter.
