7 Things: Democrats/media downplay Durham report; LGBTQ+ protests hits State House; and more …

7. Those who are concerned about artificial intelligence and its future impact on our society got another reason to be concerned as Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) used AI to deliver his remarks to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The AI did not serve in Vietnam either, but did not lie about it, so it is not a perfect technology, yet.

6. Huntsville absolutely plummets on the list of “Best” cities to live in the United States from No. 1 all the way down to No. 2, with Green Bay(?) taking over that top slot. Mayor Tommy Battle should resign in shame. Other Alabama cities ranked as well, Birmingham was at No. 80 and Montgomery came in at No. 94; Mobile was the last Alabama city at No. 115. Green Bay?

5. The Alabama State House has passed a bill that would require phone manufacturers to activate a porn blocker on cell phones and rejected a substitute that would have required porn sites to use age verification for their sites in Alabama, as some other states do.

4. U.S. Sen. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) excoriated the Secretary of Defense and told him to “cut through the politics” and move Space Command HQ to Redstone Arsenal. Other leaders continue pleading with President Joe Biden to ignore the politics and move Space Command HQ to Alabama.

3. Lt. Gov. Will Ainsworth announced he has the support of 100 of 105 lawmakers in the Alabama State House of Representatives and 35 of 35 Alabama state senators as sponsors for a “bill that cuts the state sales tax on groceries and begins the process of abolishing it altogether.”

2. Adult Alabama Democrats protested for the right of parents to change the gender of their children and for obese men in women’s swimsuits, covered in sequins, to gyrate in front of children in libraries, public schools, and bars. They will lose this fight.

1. The media and their Democrats don’t seem to keen on accepting the results of the Durham report and will continue suggesting that former President Donald Trump is a Russian asset. If Republicans did this, they would be fact-checked and the media would declare these opinions to be a threat to democracy or something.
