I am glad Fat Nixon is addressing the important issues facing America today!

Crumbling roads. Nope.

Health care costs soaring. Nope.

Tuition becoming unaffordable. Nope.

Making sure Skeeter can post outright lies on Facebook. You betcha.

Better watch out Rcade, can plonks be safe from this?

Good, get these idiots on a government list. That'll scare them back into the holes they crawled out of.

I am going to file a complaint against Rcade for censoring Illegitimate President Bucket of ----.

Here's your complaints:

Trump's Blocking of Twitter Users Is Unconstitutional, Judge Says

When Trump blocks users on Twitter, he does it himself, DOJ lawyer says

And how many NDA's has Trump forced people to sign?

Conservatives have been complaining for decades because the vast majority of Professors, and PhDs for that matter, favor progressive thinking. This is because a liberal mind it is a natural consequence of a superior disciplined mind filled with truthful facts. This contrasts sharply with most conservative minds full of fake facts. But conservatives want you to believe this is an unnatural condition caused by a liberal biased press, which the finest trained minds in the country are unable to think past.

This is a another version of that same idiotic complaint.

I go into left-wing and right-wing pages and argue with people. I like to argue, so sue me. I argue abortion with righties all the time (including directly with Ben Carson himself on his page once)...they go unhinged usually for a short amount of time but I've never been banned. I argue climate change with lefties...instaban.

In the case of Occupy Democrats, as soon as I started posting rather benign comments arguing their suggested primary strategy, someone from a California IP address hacked into my account to poke around, I'm guessing to collect dirt, and I was banned from posting further.

I post things about ideas I support on the left, some of my more conservative friends will argue, no big deal. When I post things about ideas I support on the right, friends disappear off my friends list.

The people running the show behind the scenes on the left, not always, but tend to be less tolerant of conservatives than the other way around.

Bayviking: There is plenty of fake news/egregious bias on both sides. I'm fairly moderate and I track both sides and there's some straight up -------- floating around. I'd cite a specific example, but I'm probably already inviting a slew of personal attacks just by mentioning I had an argument about climate change.

Fox News lemmings and MSNBC lemmings are the same thing.

Frigging stupid and targeted at cry baby extremist righties - i.e. the Trump base. It isn't the government restricting their speech which is what free speech protections are for. It is a Private capitalist company and frankly they seem to be now attempting to do the right thing. It is a Private service. They are free to determine what speech they allow on their properties. Capitalism am I right? Oh but wait it isn't great to be a capitalist under the GOP now is it?

Conservative minds are fear filled by nature - it is science. Progress isn't in their vocabulary because of that.

This is OK for you until private companies ban making cakes for gay couples. Just wonder about the political savvy here, oops, political hypocrisy.

From your view point don't blame me for conservatives creating precedence. Also they are not denying them as a class. They are doing things like banning hate speech, bullying, spreading fake new, etc. - Doesn't matter what your political persuasion is. It just so happens conservatives mostly fall in that lot. Find a way to say it civilly and don't lie and you have no problem.

If it proves to be effective this is smart politicking.

Wouldn't it be great if we had a President who spent his time trying to make the country better rather than rank self promotion and politicking?

WELL YEA.....makes sense.... remember....

These are PRIVATE systems/servers.

They are always OPEN till they have enuf traffic to support advertising... only then can they censor...

There are TONs of clones around looking for traffic. They just love controversy as it drives traffic to their sites.

In the end, you'll see thousands of Twitter, Facebook, Google and so on versions for each political group.

Then I predict we will have a dedicated Internets for every type of group through built in VPNs on the PC motherboard. You'll only see websites dedicated to just that group.

You can go for weeks on these Internets and not be pissed off by controversy... You'll be meeting and talking to people just like you... without having to deal with Internet trash...

WOW I just thought one that up... actually a damn good idea...

Are you saying Being Gay is as bad as Advocating for the Extinction of an Entire Race of People?

Didn't think that post through, did you?

Yay, another tool that will be used in the biased form of whichever party is in office. Hooray!

So having a list of triggered right wing snowflakes when a democrat is president is a bad thing why?

#21 Well it could be useful to monitor who will be the next school/synagogue/planned parenthood shooter.
