  1. there's a different arguement which works to allow the bakery to not put the two gay people on the cake but still force the platforms to allow people: the big companies are using both the status as a platform and as a publisher to their benefit even though they're mutually exclusive, force them to choose the liability of a publisher or allowing everyone as a platform

    ps the bakery thing, they didn't say they didn't want to bake a cake for them, it was solely about the little dolls on top, also the couple specifically looked for a bakery which didn't wan't to do that to mine some outrage

  2. It’s called legalism. It allows tyrants to make all political opposition and free people into criminals. Tyranny has crept in like cancer and the only treatment is justice administered by honorable men and women. Corrupt, political courts promote and protect tyrannical and unconstitutional acts.

  3. Snowden's question to Joe about "what warrant typically means" was just a simple way to allow joe to participate in the convo. I am sure Snowden hoped that he will just give a simple answer and allow him to elaborate, but of course Joe just keeps going. I swear Joe doesnt even understand what is goin half the time.

  5. How many black communities were constructed well after the end of slavery? Early in the 20th century there was a HUGE influx of blacks moving from rural areas such as in the Carolinas, to Urban areas like North Philadelphia. Of course since then thanks to immigration policies, new ghettos have been created in places like Minneapolis and the Somali community.
