  1. Looking into the future, does this preclude Trump running in 2024? I would think that having a president that is a major shareholder in an all encompassing publishing platform would be a bad idea.
  2. I have no doubt that Trump will make a lot of money on this. Many startups make their founders/early investors a lot of money regardless if they succeed or not. I would not want to be the person holding the bag in about 6 months though.
  3. "Just two hours after Trump Media and Technology Group announced TRUTH Social, a group of Twitter users managed to access the beta website and make accounts with usernames like @donaldtrump and @mikepence. This beta website isn’t supposed to go live until November, but as reported by Insider, people simply guessed its URL to gain early access." Good start.
  4. Right. I forgot about Frank. And there is GETTR as well. Lots of competition in the free speech twitter alternative space. May the best man win.
  5. Social media needs more competition. I look forward to it. It will be interesting to see if they can actually make money at it. Good luck to TRUTH Social.
  6. To clarify, I meant that they should not qualify based on being a religious organization. It wouldn't exclude them from qualifying based on some other criteria.
  7. This seems like a pretty good argument that no churches should be tax exempt. I agree that the government shouldn't be able to decide what constitutes a real religion, so just don't give any religions (real or fake) tax exempt status.
  8. I don't think the argument (the one presented by Ivan) was ever about feelings. It was about safety. Cis girls being raped or trans girls commiting suicide. I certainly don't want to make that decision because it is horrific either way. I hope we can find a solution that assures the safety of all kids. The suggestion of having security in bathrooms made previously could do that, but probably not feasible.
  9. Well. I am sure that would work for some kids. I know I would have liked to have a private bathroom for pooping when I was in high school. But I think the argument is that if you force the transgender kids to use the "transgender bathroom", you are still singling them out for ridicule. The vast majority of these kids just want to be regular kids, and not be forced to be "the trans kid".
  10. I agree. It does sound horrific. But I think you also have to factor in all the transgender kids that commit suicide. Maybe by creating a world that is a little bit more friendly to transgender people, we can reduce some of those suicides.
  11. I agree that people are stubborn and will never admit when they lose a debate. But that doesn't mean that it doesn't change their mind. It usually happens days or weeks later when they settle down and think about the discussion in a less emotional way. I also understand that there is the very stubborn people and they never change their minds. I think the people that unlikely to change their minds are generally the loudest (and argue the same point repeatedly for days/weeks). So I guess my point is that I think there is a lot of good discussion and debate in this forum, you just have to ignore the noise and focus on the people actually having a decent discussion.
  12. "I’m trying to figure out with the sisters quite where the beef is,” he (Keith Richards) said. “Didn’t they understand this was a song about the horrors of slavery?" I'd be interested to hear his explanation for that. I'm against censoring songs (or any art form) but I don't really have a problem with the band voluntarily stopping playing it. Hard to say they are being cancelled... Pretty sure it's not hurting their bottom line.
  13. I picked number 1. I can genuinely say that I have changed my opinion on a few things and come to respect some viewpoints that are the opposite of my own, based on reading this forum.
  14. I assume he was using this article (or similar) as the basis for that statement: https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/oct/8/more-americans-have-died-covid-under-biden-trump-j/ But it attributes all deaths in January (the worst month) to Biden. Obviously that doesn't make a lot of sense since Trump was president until Jan 20. It is pretty lazy reporting. That being said. At some point this will in fact be true. There will be more covid deaths under Biden than Trump. I am not trying to defend Biden nor condemn Trump.
  15. Were Hillary Clinton or Jared Kushner (I assume you are talking about Jared and not his father) convicted of crimes? It seems pretty extreme to put people to death even if they haven't been convicted of a crime.
