Re: They Used To Say Politics Has No Place In Business...
Is a private internet company engaged in interstate commerce?

Is this private company using the common public square which is the internet?

Clearly we can't have a working principle that foreign countries (Russia) influencing American presidential elections is a major crime, while having foreign owned social media companies influencing American elections.

Something has to give.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77357261


That's correct too.

The irony of liberals in America yelling "Russia, Russia, Russia!" when they've generally not minded a possibly outside influence of ultra-liberals of the former Soviet Union making businesses like Facebook and Youtube even more Pravda-like in tactics and ethics, goes straight over many people's heads.

Much less how the debasement of American culture by homegrown liberals is doing a better job in trashing this nation that Joseph Stalin could have only dreamed of.

Indeed, about Faust... what's interesting is how free will is always tantamount... just like how truth must out, free will is always required, even though how it is done often does not seem fair or straightforward... like this move to take away funding options from inconvenient internet voices.

I think that if the Christians on GLP start to pray about this issue, some even better form of funding will step up...which may come in the form of another controlled vendor, but it will happen.
 Quoting: in spirit and in truth


i think that christians on GLP need to explain why it is okay for Trump to be an adulterer who cheated on his wife with a porn star and playmates

kinda breaks one of the 10 commandments does it not?

thou shall not covet another mans wife?

and how about all this talk of family values amongst christians… since when is it a good christian family value to cheat on your wife with a porn star a few months after she gives birth to your son?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75061471


Are you not familiar with the story of the adultress woman who the Pharisees brought to Jesus and asked him if she should be stoned for her sin of adultery?

Jesus' response was 'let he who is without sin cast the first stone'.

Are you suggesting that Christians should follow Mosaic Law rather than the teachings of Jesus Christ?

...because that is just dumb.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 71611133


no I am suggesting it makes no sense for christians to think a man who admitted he purposefully walks in on young women getting dressed at amiss america pageant because he can get away with it because he owns it, and a man who admitted he would sleep with his daughter if he could, and a man who bragged he can sexually assault women a and get away with it because he is famous, a man who admitted he paid off a pornstar he cheated on his wife with so his wife would not find out, I am suggesting it makes no sense why christians would support a man like that who calls himself a christian

everybody sins right, but the whole idea about a religion is you are supposed to abide by the moral standards established by the religion you claim to serve.

otherwise why not just do all kinds of immoral things and say hey forgive me
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75061471


The 'walking in on naked teens' thing is disputed. More contestants say it did not happen that say it did happen. TRUMP may have said he did that, but his critics also say he lies all the time, so he may have just been expressing some male bravado (haters would call it 'lying').

He didn't exactly say he would sleep with his daughter 'if he could'. He was complimenting her and made a comment that if she wasn't his daughter, perhaps he would date her. That's not even a sin by a broad definition.


He told Billy Bush he 'grabbed women by the pussy' but I haven't heard any legitimate claims he actually did it. It was 'guy talk'. I'm sure I have said similar things to other guys for a laugh. Again, haters would call it 'lying'. Guys chalk it up to guy talk.


TRUMP never admitted to sleeping with Stormy Daniels or that he paid her off. He admits to reimbursing Cohen for paying off an accuser. That was a pretty solid business deal considering BJ Clinton paid Paula Jones $750,000. I'm gonna go ahead and call YOU the liar on that claim.

Who should Christians have supported? Hillary? :laughs:

you choose your political views, you do not choose your race.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75061471


Tell that to liberals who want to make the GLBT as somehow similar to race-ethnicity, even among homosexuals who have straight relationships during one part of their life, same-sex relationships during another part of their life.

However, I agree that free expression cuts both ways. So private companies can either submit to public opinion or go against it. It's their choice.

All the more reason people in general have to start focusing on one another's political orientation (not their racial, ethnic, national, sexual, gender or religious one) when dealing with today's America.

That's why last year's Congressional hearings on bias and censorship in social media and the internet were such a joke. The idiotic liberalism/leftism of people and companies wasn't even discussed or emphasized.

Then a national discussion needs to occur that points out that liberalism, because it often takes a shit on honesty, rationality and integrity, is anything but "I feel your pain."

 Quoting: CSnow


I agree those people are ridiculous. Believing you are a kitty cat, does not make you one.

beleiving you are a conservative or a liberal, is just a belief that can change, it does not define who a person is despite how much people want it to. You can believe something for your whole life and believe that belief defines who and what you are, and then after 60 years change that belief and drop it entirely and believe the exact opposite

this isn't really politics... it is religion... the left has convinced people that speech should not be free... that speech can cause harm to others or enable others to cause harm because it implicitly can support bad behavior...

somehow the idea that speech should be controlled and governed has been made mainstream... people are afraid to allow it, to be a part of it, to show that they actually think for themselves... I always wondered how the Jews in the Old Testament could have experienced God directly and then only a two or three generations later lose everything...fall off into paganism and eventual enslavement... our fallen condition it prone to this...

it is wrong-mindedness... it is insanity... but most of all it is a strong delusion due to increased godlessness and the consequences that play out...the creep of darkness into light.

I do have stock in Twitter and many other social media companies. I do share in their success when the stock price goes up. I share in their failure when the stock price goes down.

The Constitution - specifically the First Amendment - provides Americans with the right to free speech. If a public company like Twitter restricts that right, the government ensuring their right to free speech is not socialism.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 71611133


how is twitter restricting anyones free speech? All the people kicked off twitter sure seem still able to speak freely and tell people they were kicked off twitter

all the people kicked off twitter are still free and able to say whatever they want, just not on twitter.

it is no different then being kicked out of bar for talking about politics the bar owner does not care for. You get kicked out of the bar and not allowed back in, but you can still say whatever you were saying, just not in that bar

and cool you own stock in twitter and benefit from it… the stock holders of twitter are NOT the public of the globe or the US. SO you may have stock, but how many of say the 300+ million of the US do? How many of the people of Canada do? Or Brazil?

x number of twitter stock holders do not equal the mass that is the public of the planet.

and if you are so against twitter banning people and think i tis wrong, then sell your fuckin stock otherwise you are fucking hypocrite who has a problem with how tiwtter does business, but no problem taking profit from how they do business
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75061471


For starters, I am not declaring that Twitter cannot suspend accounts. It is a question that is likely to be resolved thru the courts.

...but if Donald TRUMP can't block people from his Twitter account because it is a 'public forum' then it stands to reason that Twitter should not be banning any user for that same reason.

You claim Twitter is not violating anybody's right to free speech because they can still have free speech elsewhere. How does that not apply to Donald TRUMP blocking users?

Courts already ruled on TRUMP blocking users and declared he cannot block them because it is a PUBLIC FORUM. If it is a public forum, then Twitter should not be banning users.

Twitter may argue that 'violations of TOS' are the reason they are suspending people - but IMO they are clearly not enforcing the TOS fairly and evenly.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 71611133


donald trump, or barack obama, a president using twitter, obviously does nto have the same issues as the average citizens. That should not even need to be explained… everything a president does, gets treated different… they do not shut down streets when you or I drive to work and get a motorcade procession speeding us to our job… but they do for presidents. And that is just one obvious example why a sitting president should not get the same treatment as the citizen.

the idea would be the president is the servant of all the citizens of the US, that is the theory on paper anyone right. So no politician be they president or governor or senator can say they will not hear the voice of any of the citizens they work for. So the same applies to trump on twitter as it would any place the public can address a politician, it would be unamerican to say a politician working for all americans will refuse or block the voice of any of those people.

as a politician you are a public servant and therefore, again, on theory on paper, hear every single person who has something to say to you if you make yourself available in spaces where people are.


twitter is considered a public forum, but currently it actually is not. A public square would be provided by a government, by a city, a town, a state, a country. SO far, that is not who provides twitter to the public. It is provided by people who built and created it and started a private company and were able to profit from that service they provided and then took the private compnay public and sold stock, but again that still does not make it a public forum the way a park is a public space… the government provides parks, public spaces that are free for all to use

once twitter is something the government provides, then and only then is it an actual public forum and then and only then would it actually be censorship because the government is saying this or that person is not allowed to say this or that… if a private business says we do not like it when you say these things, please leave… they get to do that the same way you get to kick out a person if they walked into your bar or business and started talking about politics that you do not care for.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75061471


Apparently you are claiming Twitter can deny rights to anybody because they used to be a private company and still should retain all the rights of a private company even though it is publicly owned, but TRUMP's page (that HE BUILT and GREW thru years of his tweets) on that private company's website is a public forum so TRUMP can't censor anybody.

There is all kinds of legal issues to resolve with that situation. Personally, I would think any person, public servant or not, should have the right to use social media and maintain a personal page that is not open to all members of the public. If Pelosi has a Facebook account she uses for family and friends should she be forced to allow all FB users to post on her personal page?

I can understand the @POTUS page being public, or an @SpeakeroftheHouse page being public - but disagree with the courts that TRUMP's personal twitter account should be a public forum.

Not what the courts decided, so that really opens up a while slew of issues that have not yet been addressed.

Even if it were a completely private company, that does not give them the right to deprive people of rights granted to them by the Constitution. That is basically arguing that the Constitution does not apply, and in fact, no laws should apply, because private.

It doesn't work that way.

"In the real world, fascism is when the corporations and governments work as a single entity, and you can wander around with your fucking gun all you want. In fact, you'll have to wander around, because the government/corporations took your house and your car, and no one will hire you.

At which point you'll be arrested, not as some big anti-government hero by jackboot thugs, but for stealing bread to live on, by a perfectly normal cop who's just doing his job
, a job that absolutely no one except you disagrees with, so when you shoot and kill him you're getting the electric chair and no one thinks you're a hero at all.

There are different types of totalitarian governments, and assuming a fascist one operates like a communist one is faulty. Fascist governments don't put troops in the streets...they work with corporations to make sure 'the wrong sort of people' do not have any economic power, and do not have anywhere to peddle their ideas.

Modern fascist states don't even bother to kill those people, and pretending they're going to show up in some stormtrooper outfit and start a gun battle with you is insane. They'll show up with a court order to evict you from your home because you failed to pay your mortgage, because pressure came from the top at your company to let you go. Or they'll just sue you and ruin your finances."

You "can" still vote for Hillary? Maybe you didn't mean to make her sound as somehow not any worse than Trump, but maybe you did.

However, if you believe Hillary is not much lower than Trump, that means you don't think a sleazy liberal is necessarily any worse than a MAGA-favoring Trump.

You then go out of your way to slam Trump's Christian orientation. You make the allegations raised by women against him as what? About as serious and credible as the allegations against Bill Clinton. The ones enabled by his wife?

Who should Christians have supported? Hillary? :laughs:
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 71611133


you had not heard any actual claims he did it…? there have been like 16 women claim he sexually assaulted them. Trump said he would sue them all after the election, and then never did sue them

I never said christians should support hillary, she is a war criminal, which IMO is worse then being an adulterer womanizer.

THe point is not a christian must choose one or the other, it is the fact that christians defend trump as a good christian and that he is doing gods work and god chose him and he is a saintly man. Trump pays christianity lip service and panders to christians, two corinthians… tells you everything… dude has never read a bible and is in no way shape or form a christian

you can still vote for him over hillary, but lets drop this trump is a good god fearing christian doing gods work bs, because he clearly is not as any true christian would not hesitate to point out

even in this exchange you feel compelled to make excuse and defend away his transgressions against women… or were all the women liars trying to get fame and go on tv by having to admit they were assaulted by a politician… where in the bible does it say disregard any comments that paint a politician you like in a bad light and accuse the people making the comments of being liars?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75061471


Women make false accusations all the time, even if #MeToo tards pretended this doesn't happen.


I didn't follow every claim by every woman, but there was like a 14 year old who claimed TRUMP raped her - but she didn't even know it was him until she was watching the Apprentice one day and she really didn't have a compelling story. The suit got tossed.

There was an Apprentice contestant who claimed he sexually assaulted her, but she had previously been advocating family members to vote for TRUMP and invited him to her restaurant opening. When he declined, then she claimed she was a victim. Sorry, gonna call BS on that one as well.

There is also have an ever changing definition of what sexual assault actually IS. IN the 80s if you asked a woman out 5 times and got turned down you were just considered a horn dog at worst (or a billionaire Playboy). Today - SEXUAL ASSAULT!

I'm not going to condemn a person for some infraction decades ago that wasn't reported as sexual assault but suddenly when it becomes politically or financially advantageous to make a claim of sexual assault a torrent of allegations ensues.

For starters, I am not declaring that Twitter cannot suspend accounts. It is a question that is likely to be resolved thru the courts.

...but if Donald TRUMP can't block people from his Twitter account because it is a 'public forum' then it stands to reason that Twitter should not be banning any user for that same reason.

You claim Twitter is not violating anybody's right to free speech because they can still have free speech elsewhere. How does that not apply to Donald TRUMP blocking users?

Courts already ruled on TRUMP blocking users and declared he cannot block them because it is a PUBLIC FORUM. If it is a public forum, then Twitter should not be banning users.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 71611133


A judge will twist himself into a pretzel depending on whose ox is being gored or not. Various judges will do exactly that in order to argue Trump can't adjust Twitter features to filter out users he doesn't like, while arguing that Twitter can adjust features to ban customers it doesn't like.

When selecting Supreme Court justices in the past - if not still today - probing exactly how liberal or conservative they are, and specifically using the words "liberal/leftwing" and "conservative/rightwing" when screening them about that, has been frowned upon as bad form and bad etiquette. How come?

Trin is absolutely right. To prove the fact that we are allowed to hear only what they want....remember when Trump was first elected and he used to do fireside tweets? Our president talking directly to us....no interference. Well? What ever happened to that?? It's almost like he's not allowed to tweet anymore. I only hear clips from the news. I never trust any news anymore.

None of it is settled until SCOTUS rules on it IMO. I didn't really agree with the decision the judge made regarding TRUMP's feed - but if that ruling is upheld then I think it presents bigger issues for Twitter and other social media platforms.

...and we haven't even brought up whether Twitter is a publisher or a distributor. That may affect legal rulings of everything.

Re: They Used To Say Politics Has No Place In Business...
Now a days they say you can't do business unless you adhere to our politics.

This is just crazy.

It used to be that a business would intentionally NOT choose a side (at least publicly) because they didn't want to alienate half of their customer base..

But now?

They are saying, "Your money is no good here".

It's fucking discrimination is what it is.

You couldn't do that to a black man or a gay man..

But a man who practices free speech, protected by the United States Constitution?

That's fair game.

We'll allow discrimination against he who dares speak against the propagandized main stream agenda...

We really are in uncharted territory here guys.

They control everything, the media, the payment processors, advertising, you name it they control 95% of the market in it.

Sure you can go underground and use 2nd and 3rd tier alternatives but by that time you've been marginalized to such a degree that you're out of the game.

And that's what they want..

They want us out of the game.

They want to limit our sphere of influence and prevent another propaganda failure like they had with Hillary Clinton in the last election.

These people are dirty rotten scumbags who hold no moral compass yet pretend to be the most moral among us.

It's really fucked up what this world has turned into.

As is often the case, a ruling will depend on how leftwing or rightwing a judge is. There may be some non-ideological overlap about social media, in which a liberal jurist will see eye-to-eye with a conservative jurist, and visa versa. But political bias will still play a big role in how Twitter, etc, is treated.

Is a private internet company engaged in interstate commerce?

Is this private company using the common public square which is the internet?

Clearly we can't have a working principle that foreign countries (Russia) influencing American presidential elections is a major crime, while having foreign owned social media companies influencing American elections.

Something has to give.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77357261


That's correct too.

The irony of liberals in America yelling "Russia, Russia, Russia!" when they've generally not minded a possibly outside influence of ultra-liberals of the former Soviet Union making businesses like Facebook and Youtube even more Pravda-like in tactics and ethics, goes straight over many people's heads.

Much less how the debasement of American culture by homegrown liberals is doing a better job in trashing this nation that Joseph Stalin could have only dreamed of.

See for me, banning AC's was a way to 'get control' of the content here and avoid another PayPal like issue.

But lets be honest, that's totally capitulation and exactly what they want.

It's a bit odd that a few days after I decided to allow AC posting again this happens..

I won't give in again.

I'll find a way to fund this site that they cannot touch.

If I have to I'll put this bitch on the dark web.
