  1. Not yet, but doesn't sound like he will be cooperating. From the BBC... In a statement, attorneys for Mr Sussman - who is a partner with the Perkins Coie law firm - argued he did nothing wrong. "Any prosecution here would be baseless, unprecedented, and an unwarranted deviation from the apolitical and principled way in which the Department of Justice is supposed to do its work," his lawyers wrote. "We are confident that if Mr Sussmann is charged, he will prevail at trial and vindicate his good name." https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-58591969
  2. Don't people usually plead guilty when they make a deal? It doesn't sound like he will be pleading guilty in this case.
  3. There is a difference between Russia spreading misinformation on the internet vs hacking the election. I don't believe that Russia hacked the election, but they did try to influence it via misinformation campaigns on the internet. I dont believe the affected the outcome of the election, though I know others have claimed that. This will happen in all elections going forward and is something all democracies will have to figure out how to handle. I absolutely believe that there is a chance of fraud with mail in ballots. There are processes in place to deal with that risk. There has been no evidence to suggest that there was widespread voter fraud due to mail-in ballots. This was confirmed by William Barr. You seem to be implying that mail-in ballots are not valid ballots. They are just as valid (and count the same) as in person ballots.

  5. Google, Bing, Zillow all show a house at that address. Clearly big tech is in on the coverup. On another note, Google autocompleted the address for me. How many people have searched it already? Lol.
  6. If your software can't handle the source code being released then it isn't very secure in the first place. Security through obscurity is not a good policy. All election software should be open source. That being said, probably not good for the lawsuit against him.
  7. All I know is that I probably would have soiled myself in that situation, so I'm pretty comfortable with it being classified as being accosted. It certainly doesn't rise to the level of clickbait for me. If the headline had been "Wait until you see what the Taliban did to this female reporter", then that would have been clickbait.
  8. I generally agree most headlines are clickbait, but I don't agree. Multiple times in that video they were charged/surrounded by Taliban fighters. Plus she was told to cover her face. I consider that "accosted". Put yourself in her shoes. For the record, here is the definition of accosted. "approach and address (someone) boldly or aggressively."
  9. Much respect for her. Jaw literally dropped when she challenged a Taliban commander on whether Islam mandates women to cover their face. https://www.cnn.com/videos/world/2021/08/16/taliban-afghanistan-take-over-ward-pkg-newday-vpx.cnn
  10. Nobody forced her to fly back. She did that because she didn't want to quarantine. There is no such thing as Covid detention facilities in Canada. She would have had to quarantine at a hotel for 3 days waiting for test results. These are reasonable requirements to prevent the spread of Covid-19. I do agree that they should accept proof of antibody tests. Also note that the 3 days quarantine requirement was just lifted if you have proof of vaccination.
  11. I really enjoy the schtick of saying "I'll give $5 million to anyone that can prove me wrong" and then never believing any evidence that proves him wrong. 😆 That whole interview is pretty classic.
  12. https://www.politico.com/news/2021/08/02/trump-gettr-social-media-isis-502078 This is seems like a pretty negative consequence of not having a solid moderation team/policy for a social media network.
  13. Fair enough. My point is not that it doesn't happen, but that it is pretty rare and certainly isn't worth basing an argument on.
  14. This is not what I've experienced. Many people want to continue working at home full time, and many people want to get back to the office. Either way the people that are vocal about it are also very consistent about it. I've not experienced this weird flip flop that you describe.
  15. I took indoctrination 101 but it was mostly focused on beer drinking and embracing the teachings of Mao. Must have been before they added arson to the curriculum.
  16. Thanks. That's how I learned my nunchuck skills as well. I'll look up those tutorials.
  17. I never got any arson training when I went to college. Must have been too long ago. Dang it.
  18. https://covid-101.org/science/how-many-people-have-died-from-the-vaccine-in-the-u-s/ "Between December 2020 and July 19th, 2021, VAERS received 6,207 reports of death (0.0018% of doses) among people who got a vaccine, but this does not mean the vaccine caused these deaths. Doctors and safety monitors carefully review the details of each case to see if it might be linked to the vaccine. There are three deaths that appear to be linked to blood clots that occurred after people got the J&J vaccine." "After careful review of the additional data, doctors have decided that there is no evidence at all that the vaccines contributed to the other patient deaths." They don't really specify how many deaths have been directly attributed to the vaccine, but it sounds like only 3 deaths are confirmed to have been caused by the vaccine. There have been over 6,000 deaths reported (but not necessarily verified) so I assume that is where the number came from.
  19. Imagine refusing to run pure nonsense ads. It's almost like Fox News is part of big tech.
  20. Fair enough. Im sure there are many cases of that. I guess my main concern is forcing blacks to live in one area, and non-blacks o live in another. Ghettoization of American cities has been pretty disastrous imo.
  21. I dunno. Do you have any examples?
  22. This sounds an awful lot like segregation. ETA: I actually think it is an interesting thought experiment. Just pointing out that it is basically going in reverse.
  23. Ideally, I want to vote neutral but had to go with a little more praise. Nobody would be criticizing her if she tore an ACL and had to drop out, but because it wasn't an injury you can see then she is going to be criticized by many. She should be treated the same either way. I give her credit for doing what is best for her and not continuing on just to avoid the criticism.
  24. As far as I know, there was no blame assigned to individuals. It was about bringing to light the experiences of the victims. There were also 94 calls to action to help the reconciliation process.
