I think the audiences are real. Just pliable. IDK about Maher specifically, but you used to be able to sit in on the Tonight Show easily.

So... there's definitely a pyramid with an eye on it on the dollar. Why are we drawing other random lines through it looking for more symbology? The symbol is right there in your face.

Besides, they don't have to put a Star of David on the dollar for me to know who controls the money supply.

You're downvoted ,but this is just socialism. I don't see why this surprises anyone. National Socialists are socialists. I'm sure "Stormcucks" realize that.

The only thing Congress will readily agree on is taking your money and giving it to their friends. "Bipartisanship"

Eh, that's dumb. Vampires were around long before our modern conception of left vs right. Drinking blood is based on actual occult practice, which has been done in all kinds of places (it's not that clever). Vampire bats have leaked into pop culture, but I don't think those bats exist in all the places that have had vampire myths. Vampires are distinctly based on humans.

Generically, the fear of the undead comes from the fear of being buried alive, the fear of ancestors' disapproval, and just the fear of death. Of course, zombies are cannibals, based on another very real human practice.

I don't get why we have to talk about the 1st amendment when the problem isn't Big Tech's ability or lack of ability to speak their mind. The problem is that they have virtual monopolies and that they clearly collude -- against their users and against competitors. That should be, and probably is, against the law on the grounds of monopoly or racketeering.

Start enforcing anti-trust on the biggest corps in America. Duh. Somehow Microsoft got in trouble for forcing people to install Internet Explorer (without preventing them from installing Firefox). That seems a lot less harmful than what, say, Apple is doing today. Apple won't let you install any unapproved software. Google bundles all kinds of their apps with Android.

Microsoft should have been broken up. Software would be a lot better, today, if they did, and I think their shareholders would have been better off, too. Monopoly stifles innovation. There's a good reason it's illegal.

Sort of illustrates the problem with Democracy. People can vote based on whatever, whether they're sophisticated or not. I know lots of bleeding heart Republicans, too. Know nothing about policy; just think Trump is a rude, bad man, and diversity is our strength.

I don't think you're supposed to cite any encyclopedia as primary source material, especially at the college level.

If Brittanica was an amalgamation of stuff that was written in books, Wikipedia is an amalgamation of the garbage that's written in the MSM. They even state No Original Research, so you can't use a first party source. You have to use some media outlet that's not on their blacklist.

How come they never talk about Chinese disinformation?

If this were a police-suspect situation, tricking the suspect into admitting their crimes, such as by, I dunno, putting on a disguise and asking questions, is a perfectly legitimate tactic. The police use informants all the time who lie about who they are.

AirBnB were pioneers of what I call the "damn the torpedoes" approach to running a tech company. In other words, do something fraught with peril. What to do about the obvious problems that will occur? Absolutely nothing. Let it happen. If anything, you just be ready to get sued. Draft a policy. But "do" nothing.

More males being born is natural. I'm not sure you nailed the reason, though. To account for the early death rate of men in a hunter-gatherer state, the ratio would have to be WAY higher than 1.03-1.06. I think the mechanism is a slight increase in viability of male fetuses vs female?

On the one hand, I love to see a fool and their money parted. On the other hand, there's now at least two more black women living in white neighborhoods.

Proud to say I never found either of them funny. The kind of conservatism that Stewart made his bread and butter of mocking is worthy of mockery, though. I still remember when they were trying to ban Doom.

Probably some time during the Obama presidency. Remember, he still ran opposed to gay marriage. Before he was for it.

Conspiracy theory, to fact, to "you're a bigot if you don't like it" is a pipeline and a matter of PR.

I'm not sure I like this analogy. Minors can have children. No one, even their parents, can force them to have an abortion or to give up the child for adoption.

According to him, yes. Not that I have any reason to doubt it. I'm just saying the net worth of Trump is not something clear cut or that he is abundantly clear about.

Sounds like he just drove to the nearest place with niggers? IDK disprove me.

Nah, just the opinions they want you to have. I noticed CNN doesn't even bother to segregate the Opinion pieces any more. I don't see why WaPo does.
