Then Trump, who is a master and leading the public around by the nose, tossed back some halfassed bullshit that he flat out didn't CARE if it was true, and the Liberals proceeded to go into a full-on nervous breakdown while foaming at the mouth.
I can't wait to see what he does to distract everyone from the Muslim Travel Ban. It will take something truly batshit crazy. At this rate he's going to be fucking a pig on stage to distract us. (Yeah, I know, Black Mirror reference. That blue bear episode hit the nail on the head, didn't it?)
The end game is near: the 1% will have everything, and you will have the clothes on your back, if you're lucky.
Naw, the 1% will need about 5% with military training to protect them and another 5% with technical skills to keep the robots working. Throw in another 9% for 3S (servants, sex slaves, and sycophants) and you have 20% with actual cash to spend. I plan on keeping the robots working.
This is what a slow motion train wreck looks like.
The Chinese will want the United States and Trump to lose face because of what Trump said about Taiwan. Because Obama is still in power, Trump will make fun of him for being a weakling in his response to China, whatever it is. Then, once Trump becomes President, he will have to respond in a way that escalates the problem, to differentiate himself from the "weak" Obama. China will do more of these types of actions to make Trump lose face. Trump will continue to escalate the crisis by tweeting insults to China, because Trump will rather start a war than lose face. Add to this the fact that the Chinese government needs to distract its population from its own failures and corruption, and what is better to do that than a potential war with the United States? This is a perfect storm of stupid, needless crisis, and it will end very badly.
And you're still clinging to this nonsense that illegals won't vote when Obama himself encouraged it and specifically said they wouldn't check IDs.
This is pure fake news. You are a sheep.
When a company controls so much of the screen real estate, this actually moves beyond what they're allowed to censor. Otherwise they can create their own views, tell you what's acceptable, and of course how to vote.
Is your solution to have governments punish companies for not posting everyone's posts? Do you really want the government to have that much power over media companies? Think of the oversight necessary to enforce this law. You would have thousands, perhaps millions of people complaining to the government that these companies aren't posting their content, and if the media companies deny that this content was ever posted on their platforms, the government would have to have permanent access to the servers to monitor if the posts are in fact ever made. Who is to determine how big a media company is before the government takes control of it?
The issue is people will choose to go with whomever filters content they don't like and promotes content they do like even if it is wrong.
Just look at fox entertainment news.
To be fair MSNBC does the same damn thing.
Exactly. And the info bubbles will become info force fields. So you'll have two populations, one that is skewed slightly left of reality, and the other that is skewed to an alternate dimension where Donald Trump is competent enough to be President of the United States. Oh wait, we already have that.
I'm curious how this will butt heads with the First Amendment in the United States
This will not butt heads with the First Amendment of the Constitution at all. These are private companies, they are not obligated to post anyone's fake news.
