    I love you west cost liberals. It’s a fact when liberal says it and spins when it comes from anyone else.

    I don't care about money anymore, I'm retired and have enough, no investments, I forego interest on my savings because I don't want the government to know what I've got, it's all cash and coin that I've squirreled away

    your attitude seems pretty good to me,.. beats the shit out of screaming, "the sky is falling" like so many do

    Then think of this. Harris-Biden will kowtow to Big Tech and won't put any legal pressure on them to stop censoring posts and tweets. No pro Biden tweets at all have been deleted while they freely delete and cancel accounts of anybody who says anything Mark Zuckerberg or Jack Dorsey disagrees with. By default they are murdering the first amendment right to free speech.

    In Scotland a law was recently enacted that anything anybody says that they call hate speech can be imprisoned even if it is said in their own home to a family member, That is where we are headed unless somebody puts a stop to it. Who decides what is hate speech and what is not?

    Joe Biden already owes Big Tech big time. In a year or less it will be Kamala pigging out at the feeding trough.

    could be, probably not,.. that's mostly overblown speculation, it seems to me

    my ballot came in the mail last week, I don't mail them back, I'll fill it out on tuesday, the courthouse is two miles away, there are red white and blue, mailboxes around it,.. I always drop my ballot off there, I know it will be counted, not lost in the mail, and it gives me that I did my duty feeling

    Baton Rouge has always been a shithole from a crime perspective. Antifa hasn’t always occupied Portland.

    See the difference?

    And no you can’t find a city in Texas occupied by Antifa.

    But my point to your point about guns is that it doesn’t make you an extremist to own a gun or carry. I don’t open carry and I don’t go to places where there is the possibility for shit to go down. Still, I carry in my house and in my truck. Just good sense these days.

    nah, its ok they censor. its their site and their right to censor. we can just move to another service. there are alternatves.

    i think ultimately there will be social media aggregators and we will be able to follow/subscribe to people on various services. like trump could leave twitter and could be on the competing service called parler. there are many alterantives, like another called mastodon which runs on distributed nodes that cannot be all shut down.

    Parler isn't nearly as big as twitter. If the goal us to reach as many people as possible you need to have access to the biggest platform. It's like if I could afford a Ferrari but they tell me I have to drive a Ford.

    I never even heard of mastodon.

    Look at twitters stock. I bet they stop censoring at some point. Their recent “ban” hasnt set well with investors it looks like.


    Also, they are bleeding monthly users. Not sustainable.
