All the tech companies donating to Democrats.

Surprise surprise.

Those “donations “ are probably the only thing keeping Democrat lawmakers from breaking up Big Tech.

Most "big tech" would never have been successful without crooked politicians and coke money. Silicon valley was funded with mountains of coke. I do not have a source; I grew up in silicon valley and have known more than a handful of what we now call elite billionaires. Many were still doing coke in the early 2000s and many told me stories about how the industry never would have been possible without drug money.

Funny how you can have all the money and power in the world and still be nothing more then a drug addict like the rest of us

Even for the average non-rich guy starting a tech company. A little Adderall goes a long way when you are already willing to put in 18 hour days and just want more out of the time. A good portion of engineers and engineering students I've met have used "performance enhancing drugs" at one point or another during college. As one said, "I got my EE thanks to caffeine, nicotine, and amphetamines." Drugs are all over tech at every level, it's no different than a lot of other industries, just more disposable income on average.

It’s basically meth.

Ewww, ditch the meth (Adderall) and get Modafinil.

It's a nootropic, non habit forming, and has very few interactions with other meds.

I like it over Adderall because my mind is sharp, but I'm not all "speedy methy" feeling. The come down for me on Adderall requires at least 6 beers.

Modafinil is great and no wacky comedown or issues sleeping.

Humans are not made to look at numbers. We are made to look at words.

I think that is a big part of it. You don’t need addy to read a novel, you kinda do to read a math textbook at the same page per min rate lol

The increased focus helps with anything. Ever crammed for an exam. Take this pill and that same study time now gets you an A instead of a low B because you were actually paying attention to the material the whole time. It's never been my thing, but I can definitely see the appeal. If I wasnt well aware of my addictive personality I'd probably have used it as a means to an end at some point.

I know plenty of people who are more numerically inclined than linguistically. They usually end up being engineers or math guys. Makes sense.

1
KrellKrypto 1 point ago +1 / -0

But they don’t communicate with numbers.

They don’t say 100101010 to say hello.

That was more my point.

We are wired to need abstraction to understand. A computer simply needs numbers to understand

Because they've left God. They think they're God or should be.

This is what is coming next. The Transhuman movement, mRNA, robotic limbs, brain chips.

Listen the Harari or Klaus Faggot. This is their 4th industrial revolution. They are all on board, which will give Silicon Valley and the corporations unimaginable power. This is why they're in bed together. Their interests align.

It is evil. Harari even said Christ is "fake news". These people are Satan's army.

robotic limbs

I hate to be the AKSHULLY guy, but what's wrong with robotic limbs? We have a sizable chunk of veterans who lost their limbs in war and are disabled because of it. They are ideal candidates for these to get some of their function back for their lives.

Do you mean prosthetics people might use to replace perfectly working limbs with "cybernetically enhanced" ones?

4
Jammyjams 4 points ago +4 / -0

No, you're not wrong. These things could really be used for a ton of good. But the people at the helm will certainly use it in a harmful way.

Everything they do is to control human behavior. Look what facebook turned into. They ALWAYS use technology for evil because they are evil. These people really do worship Satan, Molech, and Ba'al, etc. They use it to play God.

Those robotic limbs might need to be connected to a central chip in your brain, which controls your behavior. Robotic limbs could definitely be used for good, especially for vets who've been injured. I just don't trust them whatsoever to use it innocently and purely for goodness.

1
WhitePhoenix 1 point ago +1 / -0

You're not wrong either. It's a catch 22 situation for vets unfortunately.

2
Jammyjams 2 points ago +2 / -0

I do see a place in which there is some sort of review committee for vets who need these devices. There must be proper oversight on technology.

What we've seen with censorship and silicon valley is fucking sickening. Hopefully things will get done when MAGA comes in.

Correndo 26 points ago +26 / -0

You get these ratios when out of touch techies that have very little interaction outside their bubble have a myriad of strange, borderline illegal evaluations and tests, and "team interviews" to slectively hire new people.

Source: Worked for an optics company that's legitmately revoloutionizing optics technology. I left because of the contracts with Google and Facebook (before Meta).

They forgot to make me sign an NDA. 😁

They were developing optics for what we now know as the Metaverse, and Google is still secretly working on Google Glass.

Oh are they really now? I remember when those stupid things were released for the first time. I also remember the term invented for the idiots who wore them and acted like asshats in public.

Correndo 8 points ago +8 / -0

Google Glass was rightly rejected by the public, but they were ahead of their time.

Now that AR is a thing thanks to games like Pokemon Go, eyewear like Google Glass can make a comeback if it's marketed under AR. I predict it will make a comeback for gamers and government agencies.

Gaming is being used to sneak in some seriously alarming government and corporate powers the general public doesn't know about yet, like monitoring play styles, voice recordings, etc. to build detailed psychological profiles for marketers, and "marketers" if you catch my drift.

Freedom requires eternal vigilance a very wise man once said.

Edit: Btw, what were the Glass wearers called again? I completely forgot. It was years ago and so short lived.

Good thing I don't play stuff online (except 76) and don't have a mic or cam attached to my computer. That's probably the least I can do...but yeah I have heard of companies building profiles so they can make lifelong addicted spenders out of sheep.

Wow, I thought it would stick in the lexicon for a while. They were called "glassholes".

The rich people in silicon valley are not the innovators and inventors... they are the corporate fat cat bureaucrats. They are the Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. They are the ones who steal the innovations and inventions and sell them to the world and make all the money from it.

So when we see these donations, it's mostly coming from the top assholes with "fuck you!" money. Everyone else is too busy struggling to feed their family under the DNC's crushing economy to be able to donate money to any campaigns.

If you are in Big Tech, the Democrats do things like hire 87K IRS agents to make sure you never have any competition from a small start up company.

1776timesinfinity 7 points ago +9 / -2

This graph doesn't represent tech companies donating to political parties. It represents employees of those companies, who are almost uniformly highly educated and residents of major cities and would be expected to be largely Democrats regardless of who their employers are.

you’d be fired as soon as a woke coworker looked you up and saw that you donated to a Republican.

If that's true, can you explain why employees of each company listed made donations to the Republican Party?

2
GorillaTactics 2 points ago +2 / -0

A plausible explanation is that those few are in positions that are relatively immune to that petty behavior for now. Certain management or very difficult to fill position. Only speculating

-1
1776timesinfinity -1 points ago +1 / -2

I mean, it's not as plausible as the idea that there is simply a small minority of Republican donors working throughout tech companies who assume no one's going to bother looking up their political donations and are aware it would be illegal to fire them on their basis.

It makes sense. All the huge tech companies are located in very liberal areas. Most liberals in tech agree with their views. Almost all the conservative tech bros I know got out of the city or started their own businesses doing consulting.

So, they're going to 'reinforce' the farce.

Reminds me of this, a lot:

"The handshake between business and labor was just one component of a vast, cross-partisan campaign to protect the election–an extraordinary shadow effort dedicated not to winning the vote but to ensuring it would be free and fair, credible and uncorrupted."

Stupid boomer Republicans have been sleeping on the internet long enough. When we take both houses of Congress and the White House in '24, it is long past time to ruthlessly crack down on social media with an iron fist, utterly enforcing free speech and open source algorithms to prevent any scale tipping with regard to what posts get broadcast to what audiences. If any companies are found attempting to influence elections by showing swing voters more leftist content than conservative (and let's be honest, the problem will never be in the other direction,) their execs go to fucking prison.

This is how the inner cities did it. Screened who their candidates voted for before deciding to hire or fire. Slowly you only have like minded Democrats in charge and no way for a Republican to even get hired. They do this with CCW's in blue cities too. You donated or know a Dem in charge? You get your CCW. Voted for the opposition? You get delayed and ignored or denied forever.

Reading

News at the Daily Caller

In short, they announced that they are going to erase evidence of election fraud and promote the tweeters they want.

People at TheDonald should know better than to promote Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Amazon by putting content there exclusively, using them as primary platforms, or linking to them and sending traffic to them unnecessarily.

We need a moderation system which only shows links to those platforms after review to ensure that they are not frivolous.

The Twitter alternative which is most free by design is
ActivityPub federated microblogging

Truth Social and Gab copied software for ActivityPub microblogging and crippled it by removing the federation feature. The goal of that is to create a more captive user base. Don't let yourself be treated like livestock. Join any of hundreds of free, networked, ActivityPub microblogging servers.

basically companies should be forbidden from making political donations. Of course then there's nothing stopping the leadership from doing it on their own as private people...even if there's a max donation limit, they'll just launder the money through intermediaries and still donate the same amount just under the names of other people in small amounts each
