Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Ok, so if we changed the statement to say, "The mainstream media is the enemy of the people", would that be more palatable? It's not about palatable. Anyway, variety of opinion is what makes the world go round. I would say, "the media is deeply flawed, as are most things." If your mother says she l...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Moda (and maybe others), you need to spend some time overseas. It really opens your eyes to the problems with the American press. I've had extensive stays in both the Soviet Union (i.e. pre-breakup) and Kenya. In the USSR I was traveling with a Moscow native, and got to see some samples of Pravda (...

Re: Ally bank website and other problems

I can log in on a desktop, and did so yesterday, but I no longer use the app. Previously, I was using the app on an ipad mini, and I thought it was weird that I could use my pin to log in without my password. One day, the check deposit-via-image-upload feature stopped working and I wrote to customer...

check this video out which shows an eerily similar setup between 2018/early 2019 and 1990/early 1991.
Why are similarities in technical analysis invariably "eerie?" O0

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

And I would say that you are naive. Do you think the press is performing this vital function just from the goodness of their heart? (dual)No, not at all. Although I do think there is no shortage of journalists who are passionate about journalism. They don't say to themselves, "I'd like to go into t...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I frankly don't understand anyone who has a romantic view of "the press." It really is a joke in many ways. I'm not sure what you mean by a romantic view, but...take it all away and see if you miss it, imperfect as it is. Speaking of Piper tho... has anyone seen "They Live?" I absolutely have to se...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

The press are the tools of big business. I really don't understand how you can't see that the press are the enemy of the people. If force-feeding us propaganda lies doesn't make them our enemy, then I don't know what would. I am not speaking sarcastically, ironically, metaphorically, or anything ot...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Today I learned that Linda Sarsour's surname means "cockroach!" I learned this from Linda Sarsour herself.

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

This isn't the Left eating itself, per se, but I don't want to give "eating Omar" its own thread. That's not warranted. ILHAN OMAR ACCUSED OF SUPPORTING AIPAC AFTER CRITIQUING ASSAD US Representative Ilhan Omar tweeted support for the Syrian people who revolted against the regime of President Bashar...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

its also unbecoming that the media has managed to achieve a negative reporting rate of 92% regarding the president compared to a 0.7% rate of reporting on the economy (which seems to be doing well)... trump may be the least presidential president with the how and why of his twitter postings, but th...
