You can take your bullshit opinion and cram it as far up your ass as you can get it. Don't let me see this shit from you again. Next time is the last time. If you like this forum, you damn well better heed my warning, because even one more comment like that will get you booted. Try me. The entire world seems to be against President Trump, who is the savior of this nation. Well, the rest of the world can hate him and misinterpret or just plain old twist his motives, but you aren't going to do that kind of thing here. Period.

Trump haters crash and burn here. It doesn't take too long and I delight in removing them. Tick tick tick, genius...

Morpheus quote buddy:

You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

My belief is that, outside of "your right to swing your fist stops at my nose" and one's duty to protect those who cannot protect themselves: Individuals must decide for themselves.

Assuming His existence as a given: God will judge me. All others are simply opinions, which I may choose to adopt or disregard as I see fit.

Unless, of course, I'm forced at the point of a gun. And even then: Acquiescence does not necessarily mean agreement.

The number of things I've seen in my years that one or another entity has declared "bad" or "evil" and tried to get, or got, banned, is staggering. They have run the gamut: From comedic political satire (The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, Married, With Children), to books and movies (The Satanic Verses, The Passion of the Christ, Gone With the Wind, The Catcher In The Rye, Tom Sawyer), to games and toys (remember Jarts?), to the disciplining of ones progeny (e.g.: corporal punishment), to historical and religious artifacts (Buddhist statues in the Mideast, Confederate statues here), to firearms and internal combustion engines.

I guess it must be some kind of human imperative to attempt to enforce one's view of morality on their "fellow" humans.

Circling back on this, I have to disagree.

I dumped Netflix a while ago, but still have Amzn Prime. Every time, I go on their Prime video page they are plugging movies completely unrelated to my tastes or viewing history.

Worse, every single freaking time I log on to my Audible account, Moochelle Obama is front and center. 90% of my audiobook purchases are history books. Why is Audible (an Amzn company) plugging her book to me?

But, most egregious is my local library. They have a great selection of ebooks you can borrow and download onto a Kindle. I usually check out murder mysteries (Robert Crais, Harlan Coben, Michael Connelly, etc.) But, if I search for a book which they don’t have, their site cheerfully suggests some alternative titles - usually some pro-gay propaganda. What’s up with that?

Yeah, and I just loved the fact that NetFlix has an "LGBTQ" section. Fuckin' garbage.

Where's the "H" section? You know, for inclusivity. You gonna leave out most of the planet?

Horseshit, pal. Pure horseshit. You think my viewing habits are steering "black empowerment" crap or black lives matter garbage to me on Netflix? Or my reading habits has encouraged recommendations on Amazon like "White Fragility"? Get your head out of your ass, Einstein. This is 100% pure propaganda.

I don't recall seeing that in the suggestions presented to us. Ok, perhaps occasionally and we just filter out out? Dunno. Seriously: I simply don't recall it. I think if it was a regular thing I'd have noticed it.
