Comment Re: Less politics (Score -1, Flamebait) 109

You've become such a far left schill that you don't even realize just how stupid you sound. Being a CEO does not negate one's rights on their own time with their own money. You just don't like his stance and since you're not intelligent enough nor tolerant enough to address the topics in open civilized debate you resort to name calling, banning and censoring.

I'm done with you. You've always been a fucking joke Bruce but now you're a parody of the open source "freedom" advocate you once were.

It falls under participation in politics. Forcing out CEOs who publicly support policies repugnant to the organizations own membership and supporters is good politics. You have freedom of speech, but we have freedom to decline to be associated with you and your speech.

So Mozilla is a safe space? Or is it an echo chamber? Please help me, I can't keep up with the hypocrisy.

Android is shit. Complete and total garbage. You're either stuck with insecure software with it or stuck with Google spyware.

iOS is at least secure but you're stuck in a walled fucking garden with Apple spying on you instead.

Just give me something with the apps I want, without the spying and with security updates, please for the love of God.

This vote and the calls for protectionism in the USA and UK strike me as odd. Back in my day... it was the Conservatives and Republicans and similar parties defending trickle-down, supply-side, trade leads to growth, which leads to prosperity for everyone.

Now there's support for reducing freedom of movement in the UK (and other places in Europe), and for the USA to erect trade barriers. All this time, the official explanation was that international trade was not a zero-sum game, that if there's more trade, everyone eventually gains and that protectionism was BAD. I can't remember if state investment on infrastructure was even worse than protectionism, but in any case it was something that Chicago school/Republican politicians just would not have.

Sounds like now In Republican America, state interventions Trump China?

Trickle down presumes a fair trade between parties. China does not trade fairly. They manipulate their currency and play national favorites, boosting their preferred internal corporations over ones in the US. They also have what amounts to state sponsored slave labor that other countries can't compete with.

Notice China is the only country Trump is focused on, for monetary reasons as well as human rights reasons. China is a shit hole of a country propped up solely by the American economy. Without us they have nothing, so their crying right now is really just music to my ears. Fuck them.
