... On the other hand, gta 5 was a god damn masterpiece. Even one the xbox and ps3 it was smooth. I noticed right off the bat that there simply wasn't any performance dips. Even when big explosions happened. Even when your mission took you on the train and one view had you viewing the side of the train and the other had full on streaming landscapes behind the character, it still stayed 30fps!

... It's absurdist to think places like parler should/could/would/ will exist ever again. violent hate (in any language) is not Speech protected in any way,
and certainly not the Constitution.
The U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that hate speech is legally protected free speech under the First Amendment. The most recent Supreme Court case on the issue was in 2017, when the justices unanimously reaffirmed that there is effectively no "hate speech" exception to the free speech rights protected by the First Amendment.

We've entered a phase of partisan politics where it's more important to hate the other party than it is to like your own. In these circumstances, it doesn't matter who your candidate is, just so long as the other team loses.
In August, Senator Kamala Harris spoke to former comedian Stephen Colbert about the riots that rocked the country throughout the summer. Harris gleefully said that "they're not gonna stop," come the election. "This is a movement, I'm telling you," she said.
Colbert noted that media just wasn't covering these riots by the end of August for some reason, and Harris seemed to think this was a problem.
Harris nodded, "Right, that's right," she said. "But they're not gonna stop. They're not gonna stop. This is a movement, I'm telling you. They're not gonna stop. And everyone BEWARE, because they're not gonna stop."
"They're not gonna stop before election day in November, and they’re not gonna stop after election day. And that should be–everyone should take note of that, on both levels.
They're not gonna let up," Harris said with pride, "and they should not. And we should not."
The August 30 interview came after 30 people were killed in the intensive rioting from May through August, and billions of dollars in property damage was reported.
