Re: Politics & Current Events

But why wouldn't you just mute or unfriend the people bothering you... We should probably move this somewhere other than the politics thread. Well, I'm working so I'll end it here unless you want to continue to Journalism or elsewhere... I need news, columns, and maybe some opinions from jouranlist...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I mean, Instagram is really only an aesthetic alternative, and certainly not a moral/ethical/political one. Very true, but if I am to keep up with family and friends who live far away, pictures are far less offensive to me on IG. Plus, I really can't overstate how unbearable the whining and lynch m...

Plus, I really can't overstate how unbearable the whining and lynch mob mentality is for me on FB (PSA, Aziz Ansari has a great bit on this in his new stand-up on Netflix) . It ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I get all that, but I can say that I am much more at ease these days not scrolling through Facebook every day and honestly do not miss it at all. For family pics I browse Instagram. Twitter has much the same issues as FB, but rightly or wrongly what makes it more palatable for me is that it's easier...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Between their blatant disregard for personal privacy and their inaction against hate groups and Russian bots, not to mention the constant whining and trolling about everything on there, why anyone is still on Facebook is beyond me. It's a horsefeathering wasteland.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I'd love to see MLB teams in Nashville and Charlotte. It'd be even more horsefeathers to do while I'm there. Not sure if the Orioles thing will pan out, but I think it’s a foregone conclusion that the Rays and Marlins have to relocate. Charlotte and Nashville would be two good markets for them and ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I just don't see how staying in the race where you're polling behind Andrew Yang around 2% is more politcally desirable that taking a shot at a senate seat. The longer he stays in the more he humiliates himself nationally. At worst he makes it competetive enough for the RNCC to spend money there an...

So women’s health issues are being decided by old men who think conception can’t occur during rape, justify incest because it populated the world and a guy who claims he remembers his birth.

Is it me or are things about to get real scary? It seems like the racists have more freedom now than at any other point in our lifetime. If we go into a worldwide recession, it could get really bad.
