Dorsey Is Leaving Twitter In Good Hands: Another Anti-Free Speech Zealot

Dorseydevil.jpg

He built the damned place, so it is no wonder that it will carry on without him as a bastion of authoritarian, leftist-fluffing, media-manipulation.

Twitter CTO Parag Agrawal will replace Jack Dorsey as CEO

Agrawal was also previously tasked with finding a leader for Project Bluesky, a research project Twitter launched to establish open and decentralized standards for social media platforms. Dorsey had previously said Bluesky will help social media companies collaborate on how posts are promoted to users and will give users more control over the content they see. Bluesky could also make it easier for the social networks to enforce restrictions against hate speech and other abuse, essentially helping them share the load at a lower cost.
Ah good! COrpOraTIOnsAREourFRiendZ.

All that hate speech is cutting into our screen time. We barely have enough time to buy stuff through the links and be marketed to by the advertisers using personal information about us.

Are we not safe? Of course we are! And of course: NO MEAN TWEETS!

You know I think I've finally come to it. The euro-influenced culture of the US is the enemy. It is not coincidental it is mainly made up of white people, however it is not entirely white.

Advocating a culture that WILL NOT BE SLAVES TO THE STATE, is therefore white supremacy regardless of race.

Grossly overcharging advertisers and selling meta data to companies. I question whether it actually makes much of a profit, though.

I'm pretty sure that metadata stuff is of very little actual use. In theory it seems brilliant but I question how effective it is for sales and advertising.

This isn't 1978 where you had to watch the ads on the 5 channels (one UHF and one PBS). People actively go out of their way to block, avoid, fast forward, and delete advertising, and even if they have to see it, they don't pay attention because they have a phone to look at instead.

What you are saying is that the banks are all bankrupt in all but name, and the only thing keeping them from collapsing fully is that all the creditors (depositors essentially) are letting them kite checks.

Posted by: Kindltot at November 29, 2021 02:50 PM (P9T5R)

Banking (that is borrowing and lending and not merely a safe with a stack of bills) creates a system of ious where depositers are acting as lenders and the bank is the middleman creating loans.

"As if I had the money back in a safe. The money's not here. Your money's in Joe's house...right next to yours. And in the Kennedy house, and Mrs. Macklin's house, and a hundred others. "

72 As the Americans learned so painfully in Earth's final century, free flow of information is the only safeguard against tyranny. The once-chained people whose leaders at last lose their grip on information flow will soon burst with freedom and vitality, but the free nation gradually constricting its grip on public discourse has begun its rapid slide into despotism. Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.

76 It's also worth noting I suppose that fractional reserve lending doesn't originate with the federal reserve, which is a banking cartel. Fractional reserve lending is what we would normally consider to be banking and has been around for a long time. The alternative is "private banking" where loans are done person to person. If you want to get a loan to buy a house, you'd need to borrow from your neighbors or friends who have the cash.

109 I recently had to fill out some online paperwork. One of the sections required you to enter your social media information (twitter handle, facehole link, website, instagram site, etc). I of course left it blank, because, well, I don't have any of those things. The form automatically kicked me out and back to that page, because there was no option for "I don't use any of this bullshit." I had to contact HR and get them to advance it for me manually. The HR rep was pretty accommodating, and told me that they don't actually check that stuff, it's just part of the form software. I had to explain to her that I wasn't being stubborn or paranoid, but that I genuinely don't use any of that stuff. She said I was the first person she'd encountered with that situation.

And that is precisely WHY I don't use any of that stuff.

About a month ago, I suggested that given what we know about Russia collusion, Trump and the FBI/CIA/Twitter/Wash Post etc. Maybe we should think again about what happened to Nixon, and question what we know.
Someone here wrote back. Shut up Mike. Nixon was an arrogant corrupt asshole.
Then catching up on this mornings JJ report. I see a Spectator article, which basically says what I said. That things might not be so clear about Nixon. That there are a couple books that wonder if he was railroaded out of office. And all of this is important, because it is what they did to Trump. And what they will do again.
So I just want to say, if that guy who commented on my post is here? Fxck you! I know you will not feel stupid because you are an arrogant fxck. But you should.

Investment "banks" functioned very similarly in the US. Think Dodd-Frank either made that illegal or cut back on it a lot.

The best way to approach it is to assume its going to crash, so you buy out as much as your original investment then let it ride and pull out some as you want once in a while from whatever gains it pretends to have made.

Its one of the more evil things the left does. They go back and censor, delete or try to discredit information, then claim that that information isn't real or cannot be relied on.

Take, for example, the 100+ million or so proven killed by Communist dictators in the 20th century. Wikipedia literally has that article flagged for possible deletion because "the supporting information is unreliable".

Go try to find info about how the Nazi Party was a huge fan of Sanger's Eugenics and thought they could create a superior race of more evolved man by weeding out the undesirables. Its extremely difficult to find both because search engines won't get it and the articles are being deep sixed. Why? Because it makes Planned Parenthood look bad, it makes Darwinism look bad, etc.

I started dabbling in crypto early this year just before the mega crash. As of today still up 12.8%. My main impetus was to have a place to store assets where big brother cannot lay a finger on them. That means a hardware wallet only I control, no online accounts other than for buying then moving it. While I am fairly pleased with the return so far, even with all the downturns, I would not suggest anybody put money in there that they cannot afford to lose. Think the jury is still out on if this is a flash in the pan or the real deal.

I laugh when Brits had the term soccer. They are as uneducated of there history as many here. They invented the term, they invented the sport, take some pride in yourself.

In my educated opinion, the UK hatred of the term soccer comes from these reasons.

1) anti-Americanism
2) they legit don't know the basic history of their own sport. They have major soccer shows on today that use the term in the title.

3) and this is the real one. It is all about people who wanted to make the Brits into Euros, It goes back to the E.U. And today a guy in CHile, a guy in Ghana, and a guy in London call it "futbol". Even still I don't care. In this country, we never did.

Government oversight is the only solution for creating a monopoly, without the Gov stomping on fingers, the members of the cartel will start cheating on each other and the cartel will break up and the monopoly will be lost

Baseball just needs to enforce one simple "old" rule. The strike zone. Nothing above the belt is called a strike anymore. So guys wait for the low pitches that are in today's strike zone. That gives them their best opportunity for the perfect launch angle swing. They either swing and miss because they guessed wrong on a breaking ball, get a called strike because they guessed wrong on a breaking ball, hit a long fly ball for a "loud out", or hit a home run. Gone are the days of situational hitting and "hit 'em where they aint".

A more traditional strike zone puts more balls in play. Also speeds up the game.

Back when G. Gordon Liddy had a radio talk show, he had the authors of "Silent Coup" on (usually) every year on the anniversary of the Watergate "break in", and they would talk about the book and some of the substance of it.

Hint: John Dean was kind of a nasty, lying bastard. Nixon had no idea what Dean was up to, but reflexively defended him when the "break in" came to light. If Nixon would have thrown Dean under the bus and let the FBI have at it in terms of investigation, the outcome MAY have been different.

382 The Indian Bar Association is reporting that murder charges have been filed in India's High Court against two billionaires responsible for the AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine, Covishield, for the murder of a 23-year-old man who was injected with the shot. ...

According to corporate news sources, Adar Poonawalla's company produces not only the COVID-19 vaccine Covishield, but also over 50% of the world's vaccines that are injected into babies.

Honolulu, which proposed an "ambitious" rail transit line with an estimated price tag of $4 billion in 2006, has seen the costs reportedly balloon to $11.4 billion. As Vartabedian noted, Honolulu's problems "signal the kind of cost overruns, engineering challenges and political obstacles that have made it all but impossible to complete a major, multibillion-dollar infrastructure project in the United States on budget and on schedule over the past decade."

A total of 978 specimens were provided by 95 participants, of whom 78 (82%) were fully vaccinated and 17 (18%) were not fully vaccinated. No significant differences were detected in duration of RT-PCR positivity among fully vaccinated participants (median: 13 days) versus those not fully vaccinated.

Clinicians and public health practitioners should consider vaccinated persons who become infected with SARS-CoV-2 to be no less infectious than unvaccinated persons.

398 Current cryptos have flaws. They are slow and expensive. Doing a bitcoin transfer could take 30mins and costs around 3 dollars to do a transfer a bit oppressive if you want to buy a coke. Litecoin is better at about 2-6 minutes to transfer but still if you are waiting in line for a coke that's a long time to wait for confirmation. Ethereum seems to be taking these weaknesses seriously with their sharding and proof of stake plan. However they like bitcoin have oppressive transfer fees for small transactions but it will take time to see if their model, which won't be fully implemented for a while, pans out. Oddly of the current popular coins Doge with its 1-3 minute transfer time and $0.50 transfer fee is currently kind of front runner.

If you go to the US Mint website they have silver eagles for $67. Which is $45 over spot. So I don't know how the metal sites get their coins to sell, if I did, I would be getting them the same way.

477 >>>I don't see how any new currency works with "transfer fees". There is no transfer fee with cash.

There is a glitch that you have to physically carry it and actually hand it to the person who wants it, which means also you need to get it. Most people don't "cash" their paycheck they deposit it. Which then every withdrawal of cash to keep yourself in greenbacks costs money. The way most folks are today they may not even carry cash or carry very little, and small transfer fees are associated with whatever you buy via debit. So the idea you can do your own electronic transactions and not have to constantly worry whether your bank is going to cut you off for a blog post you made, or hand over your transaction history to the feds or your CC number gets compromised and you go through the "replace the debit card" drill....again. Cryptos with all their drawbacks have substantial features in this authoritarian electronic world.

Posted by: sniffybigtoe at November 29, 2021 03:47 PM (UuD2k)


All credit transfers have a cost, that runs about 1.5 - 2.5%, that is the merchant fee you get charged some places. It has to do with clearing the payment via electronic balancing through a clearing house, documenting it and the cost of having money on hand to satisfy any pay out. The big cards are their own clearing houses, and they serve the banks as well, Western Union is as well though they need the transmission and employee overhead as well as the cost of having actual folding cash at each end in reserve.

Strike is a crypto service on the Lightning network that El Salvador is using for global crypto use, and it has minimal clearing costs as it is organized PTP, and no requirements for cash holdings since that is all done on the consumer end. (it is the Uber of credit transfer)
If it works and spreads it may kill the big cards, which may be why Hillz is so against it.

513 Credit payments through the big cards do not clear immediately, they are credited and then wait for call backs or defaults. In essence they are loaning money to the receiver until the payment is cleared and credited. There is lag in there, and the cards have to make both the cost of clearing it and pay for the risk of "loaning" money temporarily on each transaction.
