Banks are not sentient and can't do anything. Who runs the banks?

The thing is, phones were made for idiots. The people who can successfully navigate installing a third party app aren't the problem.

This is ALWAYS what happens to foreign aid, if the receiving country's government doesn't steal it first. Even with Puerto Rico, which is a US territory, entire warehouses of aid and countless pallets of bottled water stacked on a runway went wasted after hurricane Maria.

Dear god I hope if such a situation happened the President isn't wasting his time with Twitter.

That isn't true anymore. There are times busier than others, but there is no time it isn't busy.

The problem is the parks are crowded as fuck. They are actually too inexpensive.

Is there any verification that this is even true, besides Rabbi Shmuly?

Uh, no. As I understand it, the child exploitation accounts are getting cleaned up so they're probably pissed about that.

Ask them to explain the phrase "backed by" and what they think that means.

The reason straight couples get those incentives is because straight couples produce children. Not that long ago, it was expected that the next step after marriage was to have children, as a rule not as the exception. It is, in fact, the very purpose of marriage to create a foundation for a family.

Gay couples do not reproduce, therefore gay "marriage" is pointless and there is no reason to receive any incentives.

In the same way that the largest child porn website operator is the FBI. Making a problem worse so they can look like heroes.

That's racist. How are black people supposed to afford 8 dollars?

Twitter is fucking stupid and most people don't even use it or have an account. The only reason we know anything that goes on there is people spread Twitter diarrhea on other social sites, or post Twitter diarrhea on sites like this one, or the mainstream media disproportionately reports on Twitter diarrhea in order to construct an illusion that opinions on Twitter represent real life. We shouldn't give two shits about free speech on Twitter because a site beholden to advertising can never allow free speech anyhow. We should be focused on reducing its influence altogether, not attempting to make a more palatable diarrhea. I celebrate that Elon is ruining their little propaganda machine, but my enthusiasm for the Twitter overhaul ends there.

He broke the rule every big tech company has somewhere in their TOS: we don't need a reason.

The actual rules are just for show. Keep reading and you'll see something along the lines of "any reason or no reason at all."

Elon has already stated "Freedom of speech does not equal freedom of reach," which is word for word an ADL talking point. He has floated throttling "offensive" content so that it doesn't spread, kind of a soft shadowban.

Everything doesn't have to be boolean. We can appreciate people when they are doing cool/funny/based things even if we don't agree 100%.

Whites didn't have fewer children out of duty. It's due to an attack on our culture on many fronts.
