He's welcome back, as is Iwog.


I'm pretty certain that after what you did to him iwog is never coming back. What was it he used to say? Voting for Republicans has consequences? Well in your case treating people like this has consequences.


wtf?

Iwog and his crew have committed 90% of the disruption here in terms of insults. I should know I’m the one constantly seeing the posts in moderation.

Sniper takes the bulk for the other side of that fight but he’s one person and guess what, he’s actually been trying to follow the rules recently.

Iwog never fucking left that’s a fact. He’s been posting anonymously for months and many others have been as well. He even created a one-off account “Toddthebod” which he immediately used to trash the website.

All of those guys are welcome to post. But you guys have got to behave. It’s been what... 4 months now since these rules have been implemented? You guys are still crying like babies about it. The one fucking rule this place has you guys constantly fail over and over to follow.

So you bitch and moan that you’re being silenced somehow and about “free speech”. This isn’t a free speech issue, it’s a maturity issue.

Eh I kind of agree with WookieMan. I'd say 99% of the comments I nuke in the moderation queue are "anon" comments that are a bit flamey.

That being said, I think anons should at least lose the ability to like/dislike threads. Give them some incentive to register.

Hollywood is incapable of producing a good movie at this point. Anyone Original or creative has been accused of heresy against the Liberal state, and defamed and ran out of town.

I haven't watched TV other than about 10 to 20 minutes to put me to sleep as I try to find something interesting on Netflix. I fall asleep scrolling through tiles I'm not interested in watching.

I took my TV out of my office in 2012 and haven't looked back. I have a TV in the Living room the wife watches or the grand daughter binge watches Curios George on.

There was a time I would have thought it would be inhumane to make someone go without TV. Now it's damn near inhumane to make them watch.

My Bar is pretty fucking High at this POINT!

And it takes a hell of lot more than a movie that isn't even out yet, and NPR dragging out Civil rights Veterans from the Civil Rights era movement. Hawking about how this movie is right up there with Rosa Parks. And then NPR has on some Pompous Peter O'Toole British asshole talking about it like it's relevant ART and not the propaganda pile of shit that we all know it is! Because dumb Americans think Brits are smart of course! All of this posturing and not one of those Idiots on NPR saw the god damn thing. Fuck them!

Most of Hollywood are going to need a new job before this is over. It's worse than I originally thought

Hmmm, 7 trillion over ten years.

Certainly a lot better than Obama's 10 trillion over 8 years, right?

Breaking your own rules i see. Aren't we not to speak of the other users?


Yes, I can do that. Not trying to insult BAO, just saying what happened so the other users know that his mangled posts are his own doing and not a bug or anything I did.

He's welcome back, as is Iwog. Everyone is welcome. I don't ban people. (Well, I did one time.)

My hope is still that patrick.net can be a place for civil discussion of issues without getting personal. It's quite a challenge, isn't it? Maybe people are just hard-wired to see others as "on my team" or not, and to hate every individual "not on my team" no matter what.


I can only speak for myself as I don’t play that left right team nonsense. It’s apparent that the way that the OG Troll CiC was handled over the years (free reign to attack all the free thinkers) followed up by the 180 where we abandoned Free Speech, and replaced it with biased moderation with a Strong Right slant, rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. Most still don’t seem to understand wtf even happened, and you’re not willing to explain. So the response isn’t so suprising to me, actually I’m not sure what anyone else expected.

Free Speech is very valuable. I’m glad that those at the wrong end of the stick haven’t simply laid down silently. It gives me hope for the future.

The Last Jedi was a clusterfuck of epic proportions. It’s hard to top Episode 1 as shittiest Star Wars movie, but Disney fucking achieved it. Congrats mother fuckers, you out crapped fucking Jar Jar Binks.

But the critics slobbered all over TLJ, presumably due to approval of all the damn social engineering.

I’ll reserve judgement on Black Panther, but the critics have ZERO credibility at this point.

They should do something together, with Obama wearing a turban and biting Michelle's titanic ass while Jamie Dimon sodomizes him.

Why is nobody thinking here?

Maybe fascism might be the best thing for America now that Ds and Rs have betrayed us all repeatedly over the last 40 years and hard working people have lost so much such as access to healthcare, housing, education, retirement, jobs going to countries willing to inflict hardships on their workers families and destroy their environments.

I feel the principle difference between D and R is that D will betray their promises, but R will sell you on betrayal is exactly what you need. Ok? Ok I would have been activist against Clinton after voting for her because she is basically one of us and she is proven highly competent in governing and administration, but the corruption is entrenched no question about that. We are a country looking to be at war forever and its for the sake of the stock market and the elite corporations (banks included of course) that essentially govern our nation.

I am retired but it saddens me deeply to see the country that we have left for our working population to deal with. We have lost so much, while corporations have gained gained and gained some more and all the time tricking us to hate the poor and the immigrants as if it were them that caused our misery. We have an EXTREMELY OBVIOUS and oppressive propaganda industry keeping us divided in hate, fear, jealousy, bigotry, greed, resentment, rage, all those low class passions that keep us from using the intelligence that we all possess.

WHO HERE IS TALKING ABOUT THE OP?

That wasn't iwog, that was me. My account was deleted and all my comments removed. When patrick says he's only blocked one person, he's lying because he blocked me also.

I'm semi-retired already. The stock market has been good to me in spite of the recent bumps. I don't quite have enough to live in the San Francisco area for the rest of my life, but starting to think about cheaper places.

Good question.

The real solution is the imprisonment of business owners who undercut US wages and labor law by employing illegal aliens.

Not fines, always imprisonment.

Patrick,

a 100K fine per illegal would go a long way towards decreasing budget deficit and enforcing the existing laws. However, it will never happen as Big Business which has both R and D in its pockets is interested in cheap illegal labor. Arrest 212 and deport...2121 will jump over wall the same day. There will be only token arrests to satisfy Trump's electorate (see! we are doing something!vote for us next time!) while in reality nothing will change.

I sometimes suspect that the recent obsession with racism in the press is a calculated strategy to keep us all divided so that we cannot effectively oppose elite domination of politics:

The right answer is to unify as Americans, and stop talking about race :
