Was he the guy in the hallway complying and begging for his life?

Disagree. We're still in the stage where civil disobedience will work.

Thousands of people being arrested (while being peaceful) will be effective.

We're not at the cartridge box stage yet.

This quote isn't accurate. The gist of it is accurate but the quote itself is pieced together.

Monticello.org does a great job combing through the data. They show the sources and they aren't Snopes.

I'm not worried about him losing the vote. I'm worried about who counts the vote.

Great book. Highly recommend everyone read it before it gets put into the memory hole.

That's wrong brother. That's really wrong. But also really funny.

We're catching up with Newsweek. We may pass them in the next week or so. I never thought we would climb so high.

Alexa measures the relative traffic of websites. Google, Facebook, Alibaba, Reddit are TOP 100 sites.

The primary measure is by country as top sites in China or India will be considerably different than in the US.

It's hard to believe that The Donald would become a major news site world wide but then i didn't think it could be one in the US either. We have cracked the TOP 500 in the US meaning that we have similar reach to Newsweek.

You may have contempt for Newsweek (I certainly do) but its brand has been around for generations whereas TheDonald is barely a year old.

If The Donald reaches the TOP 1000 internationally it will mean we are a player in international news. It would mean that there would be a significant amount of traffic from other places coming here to get their news.

The Republicans are at 210 with three still undecided. We'll still be 5 short unless there's changes in the count due to ballots being thrown out.

Now we need to prove it court, and hopefully in the court of public opinion.

The key portion of Section 230: “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”

So now we need to ask what is a publisher? A key component of a publisher is that he has editorial control of the content.

So, the question to be asked of these companies: are you a publisher (in which case you are liable for EVERYTHING displayed by your company) or are you a distributor in which case you have no editorial control

It's not.

Network neutrality had to do with access to the "pipes". This has to do with content moderation.

A publisher has editorial control of the content and is therefore responsible for the material.

A phone company is not held responsible for the illegal conversations made by people using their phone lines.

This is the distinction between publisher and distributor.

If Youtube claims to be a distributor then it does not have editorial control over the content.

I live in Brooklyn. Ain't no neighbors or bars to go to have political discussions.

You're 100% correct.

The Donald is now a player in national news and politics. We're only a few behind Newsweek. They're at something like 460.

I would like to see some state subreddits (so to speak) as for example.

Guess I'll have to limit myself to where i can drive?

Canada, US. There's nothing much to see there. Right?

It'll be a shame if this happens: that you need a vaccination to get a passport. I guess a black market in phony vaccinations and "stamps" will arise.

"In Australia, the boss of Qantas, the country’s largest airline, said that once a virus vaccine becomes widely available, his carrier will likely require passengers use it before they can travel abroad or land in Australia.

Qantas Chief Executive Alan Joyce said he’s been talking to his counterparts at other airlines around the world about the possibility of a “vaccination passport” for international travelers."
