Twitters' 'report a violation' form includes

Three guesses what kind of 'disrespectful or in disagreement' is going to be used to ban people?

The University of Michigan-Flint: SJB Central, it seems.
The University of Michigan-Flint has launched a website where "students who experience any form of bias or micro-aggressions whatsoever" can tattle on members of their community.

In a campus-wide email sent Tuesday afternoon (and shared with the Washington Examiner), UM-Flint staff announced the new website and encouraged students, faculty and staff to begin reporting. They can even do so anonymously.
Ok, so use it: every student who's of conservative or libertarian bent who's insulted, belittled, and otherwise made uncomfortable or threatened by some leftist professor or SJW, report them.  Every time, every word, every action.

And if the university fails to act on your complaints, that just might give ammunition for a discrimination suit against them.

So Venezuela is now one more socialist paradise with no toilet paper(or much of anything else).  And it's our fault, of course.

"We used to produce rice and we had excellent coffee; now we produce nothing. With the situation here people abandoned the fields," says Jesús López, in reference to government-seized land that sits idle. "Empty shelves and no one to explain why a rich country has no food. It's unacceptable," adds the 90-year-old farmer from San Cristóbal, on the western state of Táchira, bordering Colombia.
Well, hell, Jesús, that 'government-seized land' ought to be a clue.
For Oliveros, an additional cause for the shortage of basic food staples is the decrease in agricultural production resulting from seized companies and land expropriations. "More than 3m hectares were expropriated during 2004-2010. That and overvalued exchange rate destroyed agriculture. It's cheaper to import than it is to produce. That's a perverse model that kills off any productivity," he says.
Socialism: working as it always does.

By the way, next time someone starts on the wonderful socialized medicine systems of places like Sweden,
The trend continues, with the English-language The Local reporting last week that "One in ten Swedes now has private health insurance." The site also says, "More than half a million Swedes now have private health insurance," though that seems to refer to the growth in the number of policies, with many more of the country's 9.5 million people actually covered by private insurance.

Why the growth? From The Local:
"It's quicker to get a colleague back to work if you have an operation in two weeks' time rather than having to wait for a year," privately insured Anna Norlander told Sveriges Radio on Friday. "It's terrible that I, as a young person, don't feel I can trust the health care system to take care of me."

In a separate article about Sweden's shrinking welfare state, The Local also noted that "visitors are sometimes surprised to learn about year-long waiting times for cancer patients."
You'll note that they've also been cutting WAY back on all the happy-socialism crap; because it was ruining them.

The CDC slipped-up and presented some uncomfortable- for the 'ban guns' people- facts.

Twitter is irrelevant in today's world. Truly they are. It's designed for snarky disagreement, and now they're limiting the snark.
