    Responding to Don’s post in the previous thread: not wrong at all, to ask if they had firearms.
    I would have done the same.

      What the hell? Is this a democracy where the free press gets to ask tough questions of our political leaders or is this an autocracy where the press is told what to ask and when to shut up? We have to make a choice and so does the MSM.

      Ha, thank you for highlighting this thread. It emphasizes what I alluded to earlier about the outreach to the African American community in Alabama. Mr. Jones’ campaign was originally constrained by a shortage of resources. However, the outreach increased once more resources were available. Whatever happens in the election tonight, I have deeply thank all those who sent Mr. Jones contributions. His campaign will be an asset for building an infrastructure for other campaigns in Alabama

    ‘You are being programmed,’ former Facebook executive warns

    A former Facebook executive has criticised the social network for ripping society apart during a question and answer session.

    Chamath Palihapitiya, who worked as Facebook’s vice president for user growth, was speaking at an event run by the Stanford Graduate School of Business on 10 November in which he described feeling “tremendous guilt’ in helping the company attract two billion users.

    His comments echoed remarks by Sean Parker, one of the early pioneers of Facebook, who spoke on 8 November, saying the social network provided “a dopamine hit and a social validation feedback loop, that exploited a vulnerability in human psychology.”

    //

    Palihapitiya referred to a Facebook blog post in October which said an estimated 10 million people in the US saw Facebook adverts from Russia before and after the US presidential election. The blog said most adverts focused on “divisive social and political messages” on issues like immigration and gun rights.

    There was “no civil discourse, no cooperation, misinformation, mistruth and its not just an American problem, it’s not just about Russian ads,” explained Palihaptitya. “This is a global problem.”

    Russia has denied trying to influence the US election.

      I’m sure there might be some validity to this argument that’s being made by former Facebook executives. Throughout history entities have spent billions upon billions to get a desired result through advertising because advertising is a very effective tool. But I’ll say it once and I’ll say it going to my grave, for some reason, Russia through Facebook hasn’t been able to convince black women to vote against their own best interest. And why is that? Not even Spock with his Vulcan Mind-Meld could trick black women into voting against their own best interest.

      No its not the biggest political story of day because the normalization of the absurd has taken hold. If p***y grabbing didn’t influence the masses, certainly a President accusing a Presidential candidate of willing to exchange having sex with him in return for a campaign contribution isn’t going to influence the masses. It is where we are, and we didn’t get here over night. We got here by giggles and smirks when Trump said Obama wasn’t born in America. We got here by granting the absurd an audience.

    First exit polls come in….

    CNN’s exit polls show Roy Moore winning white voters 70-27%, Doug Jones winning black voters 95-5%.”

    Roy Moore is winning college-educated whites 59-37% and winning non-college whites 78-20% (per CNN exit poll)

    Moore/Trump…wins white folks across the board…something that Ta Nehisi Coates spoke of in his piece “The First White President”

    In an upset, Democrat Doug Jones is projected to win Senate seat in Ala. race roiled by misconduct allegations against Roy Moore

    The Associated Press projected that Jones, a former U.S. attorney, defeated Moore, a controversial former judge, in a major upset. Moore faced allegations that, decades earlier, he had pursued romantic relationships with girls in their teens when he was in his 30s.

    Jones’s victory in the special election is a seismic defeat for the GOP, President Trump and Trump’s former chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon. The result will narrow the Republican majority in the Senate to 51 to 49 — and will place that majority in greater peril during next year’s midterm elections.

      On sad note, I wanted to convey my deep condolences for the sudden passing of your Mayor. I have friends in San Francisco who loved and respected him.

      • December 12, 2017 at 11:01 pm

        OMG, YES, and it’s just so wonderful!!!

        There is a very definite sadness hanging over SF. Mayor Lee was a very humble man who worked day and night to make this a better city and he did. He cared passionately about affordable housing and secured over 17K new units, raised the minimum wage to $15, dedicated himself to improving the lot of the homeless and just generally was a very, very kind person.
