  1. Come to think of it, my grandfather didn't thank us for his funeral either.
  2. No real need to defend any candidate anymore. Affairs, murder fantasies, DIUs, mean boss; who cares? Rs are in no position to throw dirt, but they will. Trump is no position to belittle and demean anyone, but he will. It's a charade that is boring to keep up with. Morality has been checked at the door. Whoever is that last person standing at the end of the process has my vote. As long as the D's don't elect a narcissistic sociopath crime boss like Don Veto, I really don't care who it is at all.
  3. Andrew Gillum encapsulated it best in the DeSantis debate, “I’m not calling him a racist. But the racists believe he’s a racist.” Whether politicians like DeSantis, Trump and King have the same hatred in their hearts or merely espouse these beliefs to pander to racists for votes is another question. Neither is healthy or helpful for society.
  4. Wow. This is the crux of the problem. Politicians like this get voted in by people. I have no idea who that is, but I'm sure a segment of this politicians supporters rationalized their vote by claiming other reasons for their support. They are the problem and perpetuate the normalization of hate by giving legitimacy to horrible ideas.
  5. Gotcha. I don't know about this persons digital footprint or what his personal Facebook page was like, but I can only assume if he wrote a manifesto that his Facebook page and overall online presence was littered with hate. Again, not familiar with Facebook, but I'd image there is a TOS that can easily be written to ban users who engage in certain speech and have algorithms monitor for breeches and zap access to their services. But to your point, it will cost Facebook in users, which will cost in profits, which will cost in falling share price. Twitter removed 9 million users; fake accounts and bots spewing disinformation and hate speech. Stock got crushed. People of certain political beliefs outraged they were being targeted. Although far from perfect, it seems that Twitters attempt to focus on the health of their platform over metrics that effect their value, like MAUs and DAUs, is a step in the right direction.
  6. Wouldn't policing their platform help profits? I honestly don't have an answer for this since I don't use Facebook, but I find it hard to believe there are pedo pages or sex trafficking pages on Facebook, but maybe there is.
  7. Yeah, there is no putting that genie back in the bottle. Social media is basically the internet, and there are darker corners than mainstream platforms that will always exist. Improved policing is needed to drive radicalism out of the mainstream, back into the darkness. I've always believed terrorism should be treated like pedophilia or other abominable crimes. If a persons digital footprint can be traced to such material or if a person has that material in their possession, it's a crime. I don't really think it should be a gray area, but I suppose there are plenty of people who casually traffic in racism and hate that think it's their right. As shocking as these events are when they happen, it shouldn't be surprising. We live in an environment where hatred and racism are normalized. Until people make the hard choices to reject that, this is the world we've all created.
  8. Bell has been going as the 7th/8th RB taken in early FFPC drafts I’ve done. Seems about right with potential for upside. I can see 2016 type Bell numbers in a full 16 game season with the Jets.
  9. and Trump refuses to go under oath to clear it all up since he can't tell the truth for some reason.
  10. neocons super hard for a war. same mo as Iraq. just lie about stuff and make it happen.
