You can't even view what people post without being logged in. That's the real kicker. What's the point of that?

Banking and leftism goes pretty hand and hand, due to how much the sector benefits from big government corruption.

But it really depends what you are looking for. The south is nice if you can stand the heat. Also I don't know how easy it is for a Canadian to get an American visa (or vice versa) unless your job skills are something really in demand by international employers.

Also if you have enough money (7 figures?) it's not a problem, as most things in life.

So in a few short years when whites are no longer in the majority in the U.S. will the open season on us be canceled?

Somehow I doubt it.

The way this story is framed is infuriating.

What they were doing is completely unlawful and criminally aggressive. The officer had a very real imminent and reasonable fear for his life.

If they're willing to do this to police imagine what they're willing to do to normal people. No need to imagine really - we've seen it.

I'm never driving in or near a big city ever again if I can at all help it. I'll avoid them completely.

The only way to win is to get off the platform they control. They are utterly conniving and duplicitous, and beyond reasoning with. Laws and regulations won't be nearly enough and may even be turned against us.

That you can't view parlor without being logged in does seem like a pretty big impediment to widespread adoption.

The bias is glaring and obvious to anyone with a tad bit of intellectual honesty.

Most won't admit NBC, PBS/NPR, ABC, CBS, WAPO, NYTIMES, AP, Reuters, etc. have left wing bias. We're just imaging it LOL.

I once told my dad to check out http://www.newsbusters.org for examples of mass-media bias. What'd he say? "Who's it funded by??"

Who cares? Who funds the garbage listed above - giant corporations? Like they care about keeping the public informed.

I'm actually surprised the local district attorney hasn't come up with some reason to arrest them yet.

Yes Trump is worth billions to Twitter's market valuation.

If he moved to Parlor millions would follow, including the left. It would instantly create real competition and it would be a big blow to Twitter's dominance of the market.

If Parlor can handle such an influx and gab can't that's a reason to support it.

I'm not currently on either but what advantage does Parler have over gab?

Is it just that it has a better reputation since all the fringe extremists are already on gab?

If everyone started using gab it would no longer just be fringe extremists.

Personally I don't use anything but thedonald.win. I'd be open to using a viable Twitter alternative though. It will be very difficult for either of these to compete with Twitter's network effect, without something major like Trump moving or massive marketing investments.

If Trump wins Wisconsin he wins period. He'll get the whole Midwest.

They get upset if police do not allow themselves to be physically attacked or burned alive in their own precincts.

They're obviously getting desperate as the whole regime is on the ropes.

My girlfriend is obsessed with Golden Girls and I've already mocked her relentlessly over this. Telling her that she better get the DVD box set now since by this time next year most of the episodes will be banned. I'm only half joking when I say that.

I told her it's "problematic" that none of the girls are black or hispanic. She told me that in the first episode they had a black butler. I said that doesn't help her case. LOL

I recently found a conservative women. Pretty nice to not be in an antagonistic relationship. She's more apolitical than anything but that works.

Most people are not going to seek out and watch video evidence and it's not like the fake news media/big tech will allow that narrative to take hold.

Trump tweets impulsively and incessantly and sometimes it upsets crybabies.

Mitt Romney kneels down to communist insurrectionists.

Pretty sure it is the Romney supporters who should be embarrassed.

You need to give your phone number to access it. That's the main complaint I've heard. I haven't bothered.

What's wrong with gab? I don't use it but would if it started to take off.

Situation is pretty grim. No where is going to be able to get the necessary network effect without Trump moving there and making a big show of it. A lot of people including non supporters would follow him.

Aside from that I suppose if one of these alternatives had a billion dollars in marketing funds they might have a shot at breaking through.

Leftists are despicable.

What is the specific proposal?

The premise of "Adding more limits to government power via the bill of rights" is exactly why many founders opposed the Bill of Rights.

The Constitution limits government power, or that was the idea anyway. The "Bill of Rights" just muddies the water. Of course the government doesn't have the power to limit speech or take guns. The federal government has only certain carefully enumerated powers listed in Article 1 Section 8 and nothing else.

Anyway getting any decent Amendment passed among such an ignorant and indoctrinated population would be quite difficult.

Biden can't even speak coherently for 30 seconds. If they think he is going to cruise to victory reciting tired talking points (poorly) than the Democrats have another thing coming.
