Elon Musk has definitely said and done things I've disagreed with over the years, but pledging to reverse Donald Trump's Twitter ban isn't one of them. Freedom of speech includes speech you disagree with and speech you find offensive, whoever that might be from. Equal rights includes equal right to be offended. Well done Elon. Sorry for link to the B.B.C. again https://www.bbc.com/news/business-61399483.

That one action created two competitors to twitter. The company has been run as a social project instead of a business.

I'm looking forward to the changes Musk will make. I'm guessing 40% of the work force will be fired, most of that in management.

They pay ONE lawyer $17 million dollars a year to censor people and promote the left's narrative.

Don't worry. Starting a world war with Russia, destroying the global economy, and transgender education will solve all of that!
What, me worry? I've been saying all along this would happen. Have you got a solution besides Trump? Are you personally prepped? :unsure:

“I am not going on Twitter. I am going to stay on Truth. I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth.” -Trump
We'll see, we'll see...

I never said Trump was the solution. But I'm not using him as a distraction from reality either - I have the Johnny Depp trial for that. We have actual people in charge now, the so-called adults, who are driving us to the brink rather than trying to correct course. So, it's fine if you want to forget about that and focus on Trump as an escape - but at least recognize it as such. Otherwise we may as well be discussing Amber Heard's crying skills and how they will end the world.

Trump has the same attitude toward Ukraine as the the environment... somebody's else's problem.
Really don't know what you are talking about. Especially regarding Ukraine. But if you're happy with the war machine running things and a semi-mobile dummy in the White House, that's fine.

When Ukraine asked for weapons, Barack Obama sent blankets ( non-lethal aid ) because he wanted Putin's cooperation with Iran. Joe Biden extorted Ukraine in exchange for favorable treatment by the USA.

Trump sent weapons to Ukraine.

Democrats in the house got angry with Trump for trying to force Ukraine to admit they had been extorted, held a show trial and impeached Trump.

The Senate refused and found Trump not guilty.
--

Trump's America first policy would not have allowed the state department to use Putin as a negotiator with Iran. Without tacit support from the Joe Biden, Putin would not have invaded Ukraine, imo.

You need to quit trump cold turkey .

I see that Trump hasn't been mentioned for a whole week... must be a record from up north!

It's sad when people obsess over one person, a kind of myopia that clouds everything else.
I remember asking about Roosevelt (FDR) when I was in grade school, and my father kind of grunted that he wasn't great. He obviously hated him, but didn't prattle on about it. Even the grunt was a surprise for me, because we were taught (brainwashed?) that he was the greatest president in the history of all mankind. He even served 3 terms. He was on our coins! He ended the depression, we were told...

There weren't masses of people cursing out that Roosevelt every time a strong wind knocked out their phone line 20 years later. Awful as he was, and he was a truly awful president, they had lives.

I feel the same when people rattle on about Obama, Bush, Clinton... They are not the problem - they are just the symptoms.

Occasionally we get a leader so monumentally bad, or good the media can't can't help or stop them.

I think they tend to be exaggerated either way. We have semi-conscious nursing home patient and (when he had a functioning but still inferior brain) former racist and deeply corrupt pol there right now, and the country is still being run by the same cabal. That cabal prefers the masses focus on the personalities out front. It keep us from asking who is really running things.

That said, the public will never ask those questions, They'll vote the whole cruise ship down sh#t creek, and then blame the entertainment director when they arrive at the bottom.

The media enforces a political narrative but in Joe Biden's case the lie is just too blatant. Obama was a communist sympathizer and "decolonizer" but the economy ran well enough, and the changes were small enough the media could pretend he was the "greatest president ever".

i agree we have a mentally and morally compromised politician being run by the radical left. The democrat party has left most of America behind but and media is unable to hide it.

The presidents "emergency" trip to Wisconsin is an opportunity to demonize the "white" party and keep Hispanics and Blacks voting as they are told. The media can still enforce that narrative because most minorities identify as victims.

Joe Biden is still a racist. The democrat party functions on racism and accusing others of doing what they do. The democrats just changed the focus of their racism.

and the country is still being run by the same cabal. That cabal prefers the masses focus on the personalities out front. It keep us from asking who is really running things...

There is a difference between republicans and democrats but politicians are allowed to spend their careers in congress. They now cover for each other
