Posted in: Musk floats paid Twitter verification, makes himself board's sole member See in context

as someone with a follower count of well over 350, Its an issue for the likes of me, not the avg Twitter user with hardly any followers.

This is the funniest thing I've ever seen on this website.

that is very true but at the same time there are those who unfortunately develop opinions and beliefs based on hate, lies and falsehoods who then propagate the agenda. My mother had a way of dealing with bad language when I was a young lad, a bar of soap in the mouth. The consequence still resonates every time I wash my hands!

I'm sure that must suffer twice a year.

no one wants THAT viewpoint allowed. Clearly.

Twitter isn’t free speech if you have to pay to use it. Now it’s not feee speech if you can’t post racial slurs?

Try again, I guess.

What are you talking about?

“Bloomberg reports that Elon Musk’s Twitter has frozen some employees’ access to tools designed to enforce the site’s content moderation policies, curtailing the power of employees to ban accounts, remove posts, and other acts of censorship, in what the outlet says “curb[s] the staff’s ability to clamp down on misinformation ahead of a major U.S. election.”

so if nothing has changed what are they screaming about?

They're literally talking about things that have changed, and you're asking about things that "haven't changed".

Are you literate?

good. cause even CNN is admitting the inevitable.

OK? I don't think you're understanding the fundamental difference. When "my side" loses (and, to be clear, I don't like the Democratic Party, but it is the least bad viable option), I accept it. You guys don't.

that will be happening in the USA in 6 days. Hope you enjoy hearing what they have to say.

Sure. I may vehemently disagree with the way people vote, but I believe that people voting for their leaders is vital. I would never say, for example, "in China they have Presidents for life. Maybe we should think about that here".

How much does this all cost? Democracy is a failed experiment. Next is Brazil, now Venezuela election is forgotten, for now.

What would you suggest in exchange for democracy? Why is "the people having their say" repulsive to you?

This person is awful. But I am opposed to the state having the power of life and death over anyone. Life in prison, IMO.

The IRS accepted all the returns. Why would Congress need to be involved in this?

You’re never gonna believe this, but; Congress is a co-equal branch of government.

Posted in: Trump asks justices to keep tax returns from House committee See in context

there has to be some basis for the initial accusation. which there is not, other than partisan politics.

There is a basis. The government noticed numerous discrepancies in his tax filings, which have been confirmed, multiple times, by courts. Are discrepancies a crime? Not necessarily. Sometimes people make mistakes. We all do. But if you’re consistently misrepresenting yourself to Uncle Sam in a way that benefits you, it looks less and less like a mistake.

Posted in: Trump asks justices to keep tax returns from House committee See in context

doesnt someone have to prove you committed a crime first?

Yes. so if you can present evidence that would disprove the accusation, you'd be in the clear. If the evidence confirmed that you had committed a crime, I suppose one might try to keep that evidence hidden. Hm. I wonder if that tracks with this story.

why are you starting out with the assumption that a tax related crime was committed that needs to be disproven?

I'm not.

Oh yeah, Trump. Witch Hunt.

There's a huge difference between Trump and witches. Witches are cool.

Posted in: Trump asks justices to keep tax returns from House committee See in context

dont you need the tax returns to try to find crime?

Yes. So if no crime has been committed, your tax returns would prove it.

Do you know what evidence is, and how it works?

After President Joe Biden took office, the committee renewed the request, seeking Trump’s tax returns and additional information from 2015-2020.

Witch hunt.

The "Party of Law and Order" once again saying that investigating crime is bad. Shocker.

And yeah, I know what the retort will be here. “If he’s a crook why isn’t he in prison?”

Yup!

Could you square this with "lock her up"? Spoilers: you can't.

Posted in: U.S. midterms and the 'election deniers' threatening democracy See in context

the term "election denier" will expire in less than 2 weeks when losing Dems once again deny their losses.

Do you think that the "losing Dems" are going to storm the Capitol, threatening to murder elected officials? If so, will you be willing to accept your mistake if they don't?

Perfectly fine to say, huh?

The truth usually is.

threat to democracy is the 19th most important election issue and 38% think Biden is the threat- not Trump (45%).

80%+ agree the media is the primary threat to democracy.

80%+ of who?

Well, it took all of 24 hours for the protest to fizzle out. One protester, who glued his hand to the floor, was worried about getting blood clots in his glued hand and called off the protest. As he whined, "My health is of course paramount". Shows the level of conviction, or lack thereof, that these clowns have.

"Caring about your personal health is incompatible with caring about the state of the planet" - someone very smart, probably

Doesn't matter really, put them in Jail, and deny bail as they are a risk to the Public, and that is what Jail is for.

"Soup on a painting is basically the same as murder" - a very cool, smart and not maladjusted person.

Honestly, the right's obsession with identity politics is baffling to me. Like, you're the kind of people who say, "Hitler was a vegan - so surely you agree that all vegans are Nazis??". And, like, no.

is there any action she can take to be any "less fascist"?

Not being a fascist would be a pretty good start.

or is it just a label that you want to apply regardless of what she actually says or does?

Nope.

They are also incapable of committing crimes by themselves.

Yes. Again, objects, by their very nature, lack agency.

Yet nearly the entire case of this racist killer was presented in the media as of the “SUV” did it not the driver.

The SUV was used as a weapon. Do you dispute this? When someone is stabbed, do you say, "leave the knife alone"?
