Or maybe you follow him around saying dumb s--t that he then busts you on. If you have demonstrated no consistency in a position, expect to get called on it.

Allow me to translate Snowflake.

"Pepsi reads my ridiculousness multiple times a week and he keeps on correcting me, making me look foolish. He seems to have turned it into some kind of game, one I'm getting my head caved in at. I wish he would stop making me look dumb. It's ruining my cred in the intellectual dark web thread. Now let me go find someone with an opinion on a subject that I can post to represent mine so I don't look silly."

You guys should definitely pile-on Cliff continuously like a bunch of hyenas. It definitely gives you the moral high ground here...

I hate it when people use my post history against me!!

I want my post history to be like a Simpsons episode. No matter where we end the day today, tomorrow I want a clean slate.


Actually I think it was Cowman or cowperson or whatever that beefy guy was called who had some good advice once. "Posting an opinion is easy, defending an opinion is hard".

Could not agree more. It's so easy to just post stuff in the moment without thinking. But my god what a ton of work it is to defend that opinion six ways from sunday. It takes time, effort, brain power etc.

That's why I'm a poster, not a defender. Ain't nobody got time for that.

/s?

I’m with wastedyouth. What this forum needs now is healing. We need to ignore the falsehoods and dishonest opinions put forth in the past and move forward, listening to each other to find a common middle ground.

Again, think critically. All red flags are not created equal. Merkel can raise a red flag and we can see that it's somewhat out of touch. Would she really be the first politician on earth to hold an opinion of something that might not be well-informed? Or, it suits you, so appeal to authority it is? On the other hand, some alt-right MAGA supporter can raise red flags which can be wrong for entirely different reasons. Who is lumping them together? Is it easier to pretend people are?

On that same wavelength, someone can raise concerns about Social Media and still miss what makes those concerns valid or come up with the wrong concerns. As I posted early, "questions" and "concerns" are a fart in the wind if that's where they end. "Engagement in society depends on that infrastructure"? Or your comment, "they're more like utilities that have secured quasi-monopolies?" Really. After a never-ending assurance that only 20% of people Americans use Twitter, even less daily, it's really just young white collar people, it's niche, a narrow slice, etc etc, you now believe it's more like a utility and nod along with a post calling it essential to engagement with our society?

Yeah right.

Again, there are issues around social media. At very least, every single one being brought up at this moment is using the banning of Trump, Parler, and those that incite violence and exist solely to sow hatred as a jumping off point. Even the growing calls to have them regulated, a big part of this is because they allow #### like this to happen, it's not based on "oh no what if they do this to someone else!" it's "why do they allow these things for so long."

So to say it has nothing to do with Trump... lol.
You need to insert political terms into your order like, be liberal with the pickles, give me the red ketchup, and don't be conservative with the fries.

Oh please, maybe if he'd stop whining incessantly about Pepsi having some sort of obsession with him.

Both Cliff and Pepsi post in threads of the current events subject matter variety, they both generally have contrasting viewpoints, and they both tend to willingly engage each other in an argument. If Cliff doesn't want someone to quote things he has said that contradict a position he holds, then maybe some bloody consistency is in order?

I'm just amused at how many people say "conservatives can't communicate" while communicating on Fox or whatever medium they're communicating on at the time.

Also it seems a bit of bait and switch since they've swapped out violent speech for just speech in general.

Parler didn't get banned because of conservative viewpoints...

I don't think it counts as following you around if quote me and I respond. Good effort I guess, really effectively curbed the conversation in your favour, but not sure that's how it works.

Imagine where we'd be if my dumping at McDonalds post was just left in peace, the perfect, beautiful metaphor it was.

If the next post is complaining about “thanks” being handed out, then I hit the CP bingo today.

The government is restricted from infringing on an individual's 1st amendment rights. Citizens can take whatever action they like. Since corporations are people (stupid, I know) they have the freedom to make the same decisions as a private citizen and can limit the freedom of expression of those who work for them, or use their services. What happens in the private sector is different from the public sector. Public sector employees must comply with the law AND uphold the constitution. Public sector employees only need worry about complying with the law, and then only to the extent to which they can bend it or not be caught breaking it.
To hear this perspective verified by a lawyer, along with other interesting context (only 45 second video)

Really? That's the approach you're going with? You both are engaged posters on this forum who OFTEN partake in the same threads, and you're going to whine about being stalked and replied to?

Not the poster I thought I'd be saying this to, but here we are; you need to grow a thicker skin. Wow.

In honour of this thread, today I decided to wear this tshirt I bought just before the election in November:



Buy it, and other cool non-trump related designs, here.
