Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Face Bored edition

Well, we all know what social media mavens the Freeperati are, amirite? I mean, with such media giants as Parler, ONAN, and all?

The ones who actually have Facebook accounts, and don’t spend every other month in FB jail, were anxiously awaiting this outcome :

Facebook Board Readies For Its Biggest Decision Yet: Whether To Reinstate Trump
NPR ^ | 5/4/21 | Rachel martin

Posted on 5/4/2021, 12:40:30 PM by 1Old Pro

Facebook created the Oversight Board a year ago to make final calls on the most difficult decisions the social network makes about what users can post. Each case is decided by 5 members of the 20-person board. They consider Facebook’s rules and international human rights principles and seek out the views of outside experts and members of the public. In the Trump case, the board received more than 9,000 public comments. The final decision must be approved by a majority of the full board, and Facebook has agreed to abide by its ruling.

The Trump case is the biggest test so far of the board’s legitimacy: whether it’s seen as independent from the company that created and funds it, or whether it’s seen as a cover to let Facebook duck responsibility.

Break them up. There should be no “control” over free speech. Reasonable expectations perhaps, but no banning.

Technically our Government cannot censor people . So how to get around this roadblock when it wants to bury annoying truths ? Simple, give certain companies special favors and allow them to become monopolies in return for said companies to do the censoring for them.

“Break them up. There should be no “control” over free speech. Reasonable expectations perhaps, but no banning.”

Should private companies be allowed to develop their own policies or not. Conservatives argue a bakery should be allowed to refuse to bake a gay wedding cake. It would be hypocritical to make that argument and at the same time declare Facebook shouldn’t be allowed to set the rules for use of its services.

Should a motel be required to allow pets in the rooms? Should an over 55 community in Florida be required to allow families with children to purchase and inhabit homes?

I agree with you. I think if the government seizes control over who Facebook and Twitter are allowed to censor and ban, what’s to stop them from forcing FreeRepublic to allow bad posts to go without being removed or to allow trolls and other undesirables to continue posting indefinitely?

I think if you don’t like the website, find another. I don’t like Facebook, so I left it. I never liked Twitter. I do like FreeRepublic. Not everyone does. They should find somewhere else; not get the government to force FR to let them be a problem here.

BREAKING: Facebook Announces Decision NOT to Reinstate Donald Trump’s Account Conservative Brief ^ | 5/5 | Carmine Sabia Posted on 5/5/2021, 8:09:38 AM by TrumpianRepublican

The world’s preeminent social media site, Facebook, has made its decision on whether to allow Donald Trump back on its platform.

The answer came on Wednesday when the site’s Oversight Board ruled that Trump will stay banned from the platform.

Access to Facebook is seen by many as crucial to Trump’s chances of victory if he decides to campaign for president in 2024.

Too Good for Their Voters

George H.W. Bush is too good for the Republican National Convention. Let me repeat that. George H.W. Bush, whose pardons ended any chance of anyone being punished for the Iran-Contra cover-up and whose government denied for years that any veterans suffered as a result of the first Gulf War, is too good for a Republican National Convention at which Donald Trump will be nominated. (Donald Trump’s policies, at this point, have killed exactly nobody. Can’t say the same for Bush the First.) You know who else is too good for the Republican National Convention? George W. Bush. You might remember … Continue reading Too Good for Their Voters

Annual Fundraising Drive: TEN YEARS MAN

We are ten years old. We are in fourth grade. We need new corduroys and school supplies. Ten years ago this weekend, Holden and Tena and pie and I decided we'd had a stellar time guestblogging over at the Crack Den while Atrios was off, I dunno, becoming famous and respectable, and we'd set up shop here at this web site that I had that was basically some password-protected Buffy fanfiction and ranting about people who don't turn their radios down at the drive-thru window at Taco Bell.  Those were, of course, good and awful times.

How can I miss you when you won’t go away, Willard?

The guy who tried to make history by becoming our first robot President is back in the news. And he’s still saying stupid shit: Among the things Romney thinks might have actually changed the election appears to be his own comments. He repeatedly referenced his own “mistakes” in the CNN interview. He said he “regrets” his comment about 47 percent of Americans refusing to take responsibility for their lives. He said of Clint Eastwood’s empty-chair moment, “Clint didn’t hurt my campaign, I hurt my campaign a couple times.” He said dealing with the press is hard. “Jokes, for instance, will … Continue reading How can I miss you when you won’t go away, Willard?

I really hope people stop obsessively trying to discredit polls.
They aren’t gospel, but in the last two elections they have been fairly
accurate, and if anything, slightly republican leaning.

Go back and
check the RCP final poll average for the 2010 Senate races – 20 of 23
correctly senate seats picked correctly. Of the the 3 that were
incorrect, 2 dems won instead of the predicted republican, and the last
was Murkowski beating Miller in Alaska. And obviously, polls were better
than GOP cheerleaders this time as well.

The dumbest thing I hear around here is “no one polled me.”

Well, faithful friends, the moment we have all been waiting for is here – let’s suit up and hit the airlock, cos the Freeperati are buzzing like an electric razor on its last legs.

Sarah Palin to Announce Today on Bob&Mark Show?
HillBuzz ^ | Sept 16, 2011 | HillBuzz

“The Bob & Mark Show” broadcasts out of Anchorage, Alaska, with hosts Bob and Mark on KWHL.[Click here for a link to their site, where you can listen to the broadcast LIVE! ] In the final episode of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” on TLC — which Governor Palin herself produced and had complete creative control over — the Governor promised to let Bob and Mark know, on the air, when she decides to run for president. Since the Governor personally chose to have that bit included in the episode, there has to be a reason for this. “The Bob and Mark Show” broadcasts Monday through Friday.

She should probably wait a few days and let the tabloid book about her draw some more heat.

But then Friday’s are always good for good news. Screw up the Journalists weekend and make them cover you’re news cycle. Then she’ll be the talk of all the talking heads on Sunday.

I don’t buy it. If she were goingh to annonce, ashe’d certainly want to do so in a more splashy wat than on a dinky radio show. (No offense meant to the show.) but wouldn’t she at least pick Rusd Limbaugh’/s show, if not calling yogether a full media scrum of all the Network and cable news channels?

Do you really doubt if she were to call up all the news media, foreign and domestic, and say she was making a big announcement in 24 hrs at (X) place, that every single one of them wouldn’t have a news team there at the ready? Ahead of time, to get the best position they could?

Amazing What Happens When You Win

Obama back at 50: When President Obama arrives back in Washington this morning after his Hawaiian vacation, he’ll be greeted by a rare bit of good news on the political front.
