US Erection 12 *AND* 16 *AND* 20

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Is Russell Wilson black enough to vote for Biden?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

More lies from Joe

“Yesterday, former Vice President Joe Biden made a comment about the NAACP’s endorsement,” the statement by Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP, said. “We want to clarify that the NAACP is a non-partisan organization and does not endorse candidates for political office at any level.”

Deep state, isn't that just another word for constitution?
All the checks and balances to prevent a rogue president from becoming a dictator?

"Instead of standing there and teaching a cop when there's an unarmed person comin' at 'em with a knife or something to shoot 'em in the leg instead of the heart is a very different thing."


THIS is the best Dems have to offer?!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well at least he didn't cut a nose-hole in his mask today.

^ Yup, that's what they get for editing/censoring and it's about frigging time!

They can't have it both ways and now they're gonna pay. :thumbs:

C’mon! You both know - they didn’t edit, they didn’t censor.
They just added warning labels.

What’s the big deal? Record companies have been doing that for decades. :|

What I don’t understand though is how you North Americans can accept the bleeping of words on TV and radio.
Now that’s censorship! :evil:

OK, I’ve only bothered to watch the first five minutes, and Jimmy Dore (whoever that is) is already wrong on several counts.

First of all, his comparisson to a bookstore. Fine. Now is a bookstore required by law to carry any book anyone has written?
No, they’re not. They carry the books they want to carry, and no author can sue them for not selling his/her book.

Secondly, if we start treating social media like publishers, you cannot sue them for censoring what you wrote, as Jimmy Dore suggests. That is not how it works. A publisher decides what they want to publish. They do not have an obligation to publish things they do not want to publish. They can, however, be sued for publishing things that are unlawful, like eg slander or hate speech or instigating crime. This means they would have to police everything posted, and in case of doubt better censor than risk litigation.
This would mean social media would stop function the way we are used to and expect it to.

Thirdly, the president can’t really change this by executive order. It’s a legislative matter and must be handled by congress.

Finally, Twitter or Facebook censoring what you write on their platforms is not a violation of free speech. When you signed up to their platform you agreed to a set of terms, that you read very carefully and then agreed to. Including that they can remove content you post, and that if you violate their rules they can close your account. If you want to say things that do not meet their criteria, you are free to do so elsewhere.

In theory, treating social media platforms like publishers, is actually not a bad idea. There are many benefits, and we would get rid of a lot of fake news, slander and rumour mongering.
In practice it won’t work though. There are like 300,000 new posts per minute on facebook. If all should be vetted before being published..... it just isn’t doable.

A simple solution for Twitter, Facebook, etc, would be to move their operation overseas though, so that they would no longer be subject to US laws. I’m sure Sweden would be happy to host them, and our freedom of information, freedom of press and freedom of speech acts that go back to 1766 are pretty strong. :drink:

In fact, Facebook, Google and Microsoft already have a lot of their servers here.

He's not telling them what to do as I understand it Per. He's simply proposing to remove their legal sheild, subject to congressional approval.

You'd like Jimmy better on this current police brutality I think Per, he's all over Trump. Check it out:
