Happy #Newstodon Friday! I'm sharing my latest for @TexasObserver. During Covid, millions of Texans benefited from ‘Pandemic Medicaid,’ now that program is about to end.

"Advocates are very, very concerned right now. Families aren't even going to know what's going on. They're just going to lose coverage and show up at a doctor or a health center, and be told ‘Oh, you're not on Medicaid anymore.’” -- Jana Eubank of the Texas Association of Community Health Centers

I'm going to jump into #Newstodon Friday to recommend the #podcast Alphabet Boys, about #FBI infiltration of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. The first season, about a #Seattle snitch, is called "Trojan Hearse": https://alphabetboys.xyz/

In 2012, one of my first big stories as a journalist was breaking a story of undercover cops infiltrating and entrapping activists at Occupy Austin. I've seen firsthand the harm provocateurs can cause.

Wow, this really is the definitive text about #ChatGPT & Co.

You Are Not a Parrot
And a chatbot is not a human.
And a linguist named
@emilymbender@dair-community.social is very worried what will happen when we forget this.

By
@lizweil@journa.host

"
#LLMs are tools made by specific people — people who stand to accumulate huge amounts of money and power, people enamored with the idea of the #singularity. The project threatens to blow up what is #human in a species sense. But it’s not about humility. It’s not about all of us. It’s not about becoming a humble creation among the world’s others. It’s about some of us — let’s be honest — becoming a superspecies. This is the darkness that awaits when we lose a firm boundary around the idea that #humans, all of us, are equally worthy as is."

The Supreme Court ruled last year that if a state subsidizes private education, it cannot disqualify some private schools solely because they’re religious.

The ruling is at odds with a provision in the #Vermont Constitution, which states that residents can’t be required to support religions they don’t believe in.

What have we come to? "Catholic bishops of the United States have written to senators to express “alarm” at the ERA, warning it would have “far-reaching consequences” with “negative impacts to the common good and to religious freedom.”

What #freedom is lost by #equality or #religious freedom by acknowledging that #women are equal, #human beings? This is #colonialism not #democracy. #newstodon
