Do I have this straight ? As a conservative, are you prompting the president of the United States, a government employee, to us his power to ''take down'' privately owned business concerns? If so, that sound's like what most conservatives call socialism.

I was reading a post on ATS and googled qanon...6 pages later and still nothing to his site, just the MSM conspiracy clips.

I stopped using google after i worked there as a contractor. They are fascists

Imagine what would happen if twitter was ever taken down? Trump would go critical mass.

But it would be entertaining if Trump had to publicly speak his tweets, hearing him covfefe on live TV would be a delight. I dunno about google, they have read my emails (wrote to my grandmother about my busted vacuum, got spam about vacuum sales) so I changed to a different email provider. However it is a useful tool as very few people have the encyclopedia Britannia in their bookshelf.

If people are worried about privacy, you can get back at google the Van Morrison way. Google search the most incredibly obscure niche porn you can conjure up and repeat for an hour, if a million people did that at the same time the googlebots wouldn't know if to send you ads for synthetic tentacles or erotic My Little Pony plush toys, and perhaps the servers might melt and the admin might take the hint.

An added bonus is if your spouse catches you searching for porn, you can use the excuse "I'm fighting the system!"

Trump IS right and I hope he starts holding these companies accountable for the lies and deceit they spread.


So you are hoping that the president of the United states, a government employee, interferes with how private enterprise conduct they businesses???? I thought those who support Trump were against government over-reach.

That's a good point. You're right. And to be fair, the traditional left used to oppose big business.

Thanks, I had never heard of data farms. So I turned to Yahoo to look them up focusing on Google. I read four pieces and could find no information on our taxes paying for them. So I specifically looked for ''tax breaks for Google server farms'' and what I found was this.

That STATES, not FEDERAL tax breaks are being offered for Google to build in their states. Oregon, Washington etc are doing what states and cities have always done, offer tax breaks for companies to bring jobs to their areas. If you have information on federal tax breaks that are offered would you point me in that direction?

If there are not federal taxes being cut for these ''farms'' then are you suggesting that the federal government, ie Donald Trump, step into how states decide to arrange their own tax structures?

Google has become a criminal Enterprise attempting to overthrow our country. Even before I was a conservative, I lamented the crimes and intrusions of Google's spying. There was a time in the USA where breaking up giant companies that had become defacto monopolies was the honestf thing to do. That time will hopefully return again soon. Monsanto, alphabet, Amazon, even Facebook need to be stripped apart and sold off to minimize their seditious influence on Americans.

Well, the ''left'' is a graduated slope. There are leftists that are totally anti-capitalism. There are also leftists that embrace capitalism but hold that there needs to be regulations on it. Both of those positions on the scale recognize that capitalism itself has nothing to save itself from monopolistic development other than ineptitude. To this end, the first group wants to do away with capitalism. This group has almost never gained any traction in the US. The second group want regulations, imposed on capitalist enterprises to prevent them from getting to that monopolistic size and power.

I do not try to speak for ''all'' leftists as all those leftists do not speak for me. I recognize that capitalism has won the war of economic supremacy in this world today and our only hope of this whole world not becoming one big corporation owned by only a handful of elitists is to temper the power allowed them. In that I hold little hope especially when conservatives who have traditionally been in favor of supporting the capitalist system 100% begin to support government interference in capitalist enterprise all the while continuing to denounce those on the left who support something very similar.

Pretty sure you don't know what the word 'monopoly' means in context to what you're complaining about.

You should try the same approach with "those who support Trump".

And I agree with you here. But as I have pointed to in earlier posts, this was a position held by leftists, not rightists. Rightists have traditionally held to the sanctity of corporate enterprise.

I agree with you, corporations have been set loose on the world but it is not the ''real'' leftists who let them do it. It was the phoney leftists who only wore the cloak of liberalism all while with their ''conservative'' counter parts profited from the bribes the corporations doled out to them.

And from my point of view, this is the doing of corporations, While more and more conservatives are coming to realize that it is the corporations that are threatening us all, it is real leftists that have know it all along. Those corporations are all happy to be thought of as socialist in the minds of arch rightists for one simple reason, that they do not come to realize that those on the left, and themselves have so much in common that should we join together and work against this corporate fascism we might have a chance of taking them down. But no, we seem to be at each others throats instead of fighting against the real culprits like

And if I catch your drift here I agree that too many on the ''left'' do not treat ''those who support Trump'' with any respect. This is a childish action reached by all to many from both sides, seeing the mote in the eye of others all the while not recognizing the log in their own. Both of those sides need to clean it up and begin respecting the large similarities they share.

In case you have not noticed, I do not often use words like leftist or rightist. Very rarely do I even describe people or actions as liberals or conservatives. I judge things and formulate my opinions on a case by case basis. I will often use words such as 'communist, traitourous, seditious, anti-american' especially when discussing the second amendment And those who seek to destroy it, specifically the Democrats as a party (not as a collective of people).

That may sound like the same thing, but typically I am referring to specific politicians of the party and not Joe or Jane Democrat. So it is not.

Does that clarify my position a little better, or should I elaborate further??

Google search results for “Trump News” shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED

It's always somebody else's fault.

It's not them Don it's YOU.

Yep, it is hard to not use those generalized classifications. This is why I try to remember to put ''xxx'' around them when I use them. Those classification force our minds into the ''us'' and ''them'' blocks that are so easily manipulated by the forces that seek to control ''everyone''. Of course there are many who have allowed themselves to be played into those little boxes of ''us'' and ''them'' hence I do use those words ''rightist'' and ''leftists'' in my own attempts at communication.

Over the years my perspectives have been greatly influenced by both the extreme right and the extreme left and in those periods found the ''us'' and ''them'' to be paramount to the collectiveness of both.

Your perspective should only really be influenced by those you speak with and encounter IRL. You know nobody on the internet is sincere since ever and rarely do you have a discussion with the same personality as you would have with that same person IRL.

I have actually said it many times, this alleged division of the country is mostly limited to the internet. Normal people IRL are not tearing each other's heads off over political situations and circumstances in public at random. Then again I speak with hundreds of different people from the general public every week, sometimes in a single day. I am just not seeing g this polarization acting itself out in reality on any kind of scale of significance.

Again I agree. My two closest friends and confidants are both Trump supporters, yet none of us are aggressive past the point of circling back in any conversation to a point of agreement,leaving the differences to the side in favor of friendship.

Unlike you though I do not have access to so many in the general public, yet I find that most prefer to leave all of that divisiveness aside as well.

My mind still boggles at how the internet was touted as such a great boon to humanity. What a joke that has become.
