^ And now for the Most Respected Pollster in the Country, instead of the "Fake News" Poll:

Can someone explain to me why this is okay but Trump is terrible (I think both sides are terrible, personally)?

Burry is the man:

Did Facebook ban these individuals? How about Twitter?

What about Madonna saying she was going to blow up the White House. Or Jerry Nadler saying ANTIFA is a myth. Are they a myth to the people who had their businesses destroyed?

The law/rules should be applied fairly and indiscriminately. Currently they are not.

Big tech is big tech. They are private companies and can pretty much do what they want imo. But they should be clear with their rules and apply them fairly. Facebook banned Ron Paul yesterday. Makes no sense at all. A man who spent his career calling for peace. They didn't even list an offense. I'm not really sure how to reign in the power they wield. Possibly through anti-monopoly laws etc. Generally I'm not in favor of large sweeping laws as they often solidify monopolies or have unintended consequences. But there is something to be said about accountability and addressing how tech companies like FB and Twitter are viewed from a legal standpoint. I think if you are willing to remove data/posts, you become a publisher by proxy. I view users essentially as contractors publicists. Just spit balling though

^Stahley - you missed Dalal's point. he is saying you are a bigot as well as a sexist.

Get used to it - Trump supporter or not - should you not fall in line with the CoBF LEFT orthodoxy - you too, shall be branded.

Wow, now pretending to speak for me, Cubs?

I find Stahleyís hypocrisy amusing in that he pretends to be a reasonable moderate but heís clearly a Trump apologist/deflector.

After the Capitol riots he says is no big deal/Trump years have been peaceful and anyone concerned about Trump is being nuts and people need to turn off their computers.

Then he goes ahead and posts about former President Obamaís comments on race/gender from 5 years ago and a fear baiting meme about Maxine.

So according to Stahley, itís crazy to be concerned about a current President inciting Capitol riots a few days ago while totally reasonable to be worried about a former Presidentís views on race/gender from 5 years ago and Maxine Waters right?

Like I said, heís hilarious. Maxine Derangement Syndrome!

^ Like Maxine says Dalal:

"If you see anyone from that Cabinet, in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and create a crowd, and you push
back on them, and you tell them, they are not welcome anymore, anywhere"


Maxine's words, not Stahley's...but love your imagination Dalal.

Clearly harassment of cabinet members do not affect my day to day life, so I should not care according to some!

Maxine is clearly a nut, but unlike Trump, an inconsequential one (I donít hold too many bank stonks)!

It isn't crazy to be concerned about the Capitol riots. I would say that it's crazy to be concerned about the Capitol riots if not about the other riots over the summer (and vice versa).

All I'm saying is that the left's leaders are more explicitly calling for violence more so than Trump. I voted for Obama in 2008. So it's not like I'm some hardcore conservative.

I will say that Obama's policies is partially what led to Trump's rise. I mean, when a leader has this type of disdain for people, what does one expect to happen?

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2008/apr/14/barackobama.uselections2008

"Obama was caught in an uncharacteristic moment of loose language. Referring to working-class voters in old industrial towns decimated by job losses, the presidential hopeful said: "They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

What is disdainful?  It's spot on.

^ It's the condescending elitist viewpoint at work. Don't live in DC or Coastal corridors? Too bad. You're just a deplorable anyway.

Oh my, clearly some people are still deeply affected by comments Obama made 13 years ago...

Sounds like an incurable case of Obama Derangement Syndrome. Be well.
