Is that guy really trying to tie this to "cancel culture?"

Some people don't think, they just throw random words out there, hoping someone is confused enough to think they're trying to make a point

Other differences:
Liberals accuse conservatives of things such as conspiring with foreign governments to win elections, and putting lobbyists in charge of regulatory agencies, and other such nefarious politicking.

Conservatives accuse liberals of being Satan-worshipping cannibal pedophiles who run secret child trafficking rings out of pizza parlors.

Other differences: liberals accuse conservatives of racism or racist policy decisions, conservatives that don't believe in Satan-worshipping cannibal pedophiles think racism is as real as Satan-worshipping cannibal pedophiles.

It's amazing that someone makes a rant like that, using the term "bitch ass liberals," yet thinks he's the reasonable, rational, intelligent, and "adult" voice in the room.

We're not 23 year olds. I'd wager everyone here that you're accusing of sticking their hands in your pocket pays more in taxes than you do. And I'd wager that, other than the bad tax plans Trump approved, your taxes don't increase under Biden, because you're middle class.

The salt mine here never fails. I hope you guys are ready for four more years.
HAHAHA, what reality do you think you're in?

You just wait and see. I'm not the only one saying this, but if this is a shock to the system, go ahead and screencap this.

You're in good company with Trump, his family, Rudy Giuliani, OAN, Jacob Wohl, and literally no one else.
Don't screencap this, just make a gentleman's bet. If Trump gets 4 more years, I'll never post here again. If he isn't President next year, you agree to the same.

Deal and bookmarked. I'll even ask Blue to cancel my account.

*edit* I don't want you to stop posting, this is all in fun.

Blue, go ahead and cancel my account (to prevent me from posting here). True to my word.

It was all in fun, as you said. And none of us remembered.
Although, I still say it's hysterical if you just create Linthat23, or some variation.

But don't go.

I never use phone cases. I did crack one, sadly the first that I didn't have insurance on, but only one.

The whole flagship design concept is kind of busted. You build a phone to be as thin as possible, with glass on both sides. The result is something that doesn't have as much battery as it should, is heavier than it should be, and is fragile. I much preferred the build of my Nokias. Yeah, sure, polycarbonate is considered lower end, but it was built like a tank and difficult to damage, it was lighter than glass, and it wasn't as thick as a case while having more internal space for a larger battery.

I've considered the S21. I have an S10, but they'll give me $550 for it in trade in, plus a Verizon value, making the S21 with the increased internal storage about $250. Probably how much my current phone will decrease in trade in value over the next year.

But the good camera features that I'd want are in the Ultra, which is too big imo, and the S21 has no real boosts yet loses external storage and the headphone jack, two things I use daily. Probably not upgrading after 2 years of this phone, for the first time in 20 years.

If we repeal Section 230, then I would have had cause to sue Blue for the time that Cutter's death threat to me was up.
Yeah, it came down when reported. Yeah, Blue then took steps to increase the mods. But any of us seeing anything would be cause, as Blue would lose protection from lawsuits.

It's a mess we wouldn't want. It would inevitably lead to most places simply removing messageboards. I'd place good money on these coming down. If Blue was suddenly considered publishing what we say here, that would be a risk. Best case for small boards would be to require a mod to approve everything before it's posted. Even then, would you trust volunteer mods? They're not the ones at risk of lawsuits.

Just saw this tidbit about bitcoin:

Five hundredths of a percent of bitcoin investors control over 40% of all bitcoin, and just under half a percent of all bitcoin investors control over 5/6ths, or 83%, of bitcoin.
Take away the estimated 2.7-3.7 million bitcoin which is thought to be "lost" and there isn't much left. If accurate, that would seem to be a major issue for a "non-centralized" currency...

So it's diamonds, with an artificially limited supply to increase prices. A cartel

Sean Connery is dead, and so is Bond, imo. I loved Casino Royale with Craig as Bond. I think it's the best Bond film ever made. I thought that all of Craig's Bonds since that one have waxed measurably worse, however. It's too bad, but all things must pass.

If you really want to laugh so hard that you lose your lunch, try giving the first "Casino Royale" with David Niven a half hour of your life. I don't think you can watch much more of it than that...;) It really, really stinks--and that is nowhere near the criticism it deserves. As a "parody" it's so bad--more of a parody of Green Acres, imo. But if "Oh, dahling...how are you, dahling?" is your cup of tea, and you liked Za-Za Gabor in Green Acres--then you will probably like David Niven's "Casino Royale"...;)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061452/

Thank goodness the first Bond Novel, Casino Royale, was nothing like this movie--or we may never have heard of James Bond!

Agreed. Casino Royale is the best Bond movie. The other Daniel Craig ones are, for me, unwatchable

Everyone here is a cultist. You just don’t grasp the concept of ideology. You push it every day on this board. Supporting free-speech is now far-right. I don’t see Gab working hard to silence anyone. Cheers.

Funny how the people who yell loudest about free speech don't actually understand how the right to free speech works.

I was banned from the Donald and conservative on reddit. And libertarian. Seems that conservatives love banning, as well.

Twitter is a sewer, comparatively. AMZN is dead wrong about this. The country is getting very tired of stupid censors waging war against freedom of speech. Let them all move to China if they want to surrender their rights so badly. The Chinese will be happy to take theirs away.

Again, in China, you can't argue with the government. If you're telling Twitter they can't, you're the one trying to turn us into Communist China.

US democracy did just fine for a few hundred years before socially irresponsible media.
You can chart the decline of political discourse and the rise of wack job violence with the rise of social irresponsible media. As they are now, allowing any and all speech that would be illegal or never published by any press, or other medial outlet, they are a cancer. Nothing good has come from socially irresponsible media, except stupid cat pictures and inane 'here is what I am eating drivel.'

This mass moron infestation will continue to be a serious threat to civilization until 230 is revoked and social media platforms fall under the same rules as other media.

Well said. The cancel culture promotes ignorance and stupidity, imo. They enjoy banning speech they lack the ability to debate. They would have fit right into the old Soviet Union, the USSR. Hopefully they will share its fate.

No, Walt, it wouldn't.

In the USSR, like in China now, if a businessman (did such things exist in the USSR?) were to go against the will of the government leader, he'd disappear. Like Jack Ma did.

In the US, we have capitalism, where a businessman doesn't need to give special treatment to the President. You can call this communism all you'd like, but it's capitalism, through and through. You calling it otherwise comes across as if you simply don't know the difference and describe everything you dislike as communism or socialism without truly understanding.
