Molder of young men

I really don’t know what goes through some people’s brains sometimes.

Dude’s been fired, to no one’s surprise.

    Wow! Gotta wonder if he cleaned out his bank account with political donations before the election/getting the boot. No doubt he’ll forego unemployment insurance and his $600 federal check because… socialism.

    Social media and the media is turning the entire population into radicals. It’s not good for the Country no matter your political view.

    Watch Black Mirror on Netflix. One view of how social media and technology will impact the future. It is not a pretty picture.

      Don’t get this take. Haven’t the radicals always been there and we just didn’t know it?

      25,000 nazis showed up to Madison Square Garden in the 1930’s.
      That number or more marched on Washington in full KKK regalia in the 1920’s. All happened before twitter and facebook.

      I like transparency. Show us who you are so we can act and not live in denial.

      The guy was just fireable before the tweet, UTC just didn’t know it yet.

      Now they do. I say “good.”

        I think the argument would be that there would probably have been a lot more than 25,000 at MSG if there had been Twitter in the 1930s. There have always been radicals and there have always been people at risk of becoming radicalized. Social media simply makes it much easier for dangerous messages and misinformation to reach those people. And when the message is repeated in such great numbers, so ubiquitously, such things become normalized and more acceptable. That’s a problem for the nation, and it’s one that’s difficult to solve because government should have absolutely NO role in fixing it. I’d rather have ten million people out there spewing this crap than have the government trample on the First Amendment to try to stop it. It’s up to the companies who run these services to take control of the messages that they are complicit in spreading. I’m happy to see them finally taking steps to do so, but there’s more to be done.

          It’s all about the money in the end. They will continue to do so only if it continues to be financially attractive to do so.

          The social media companies can do what they want with content. I wince a bit when I think about how they draw their lines, but its their company. They shouldn’t be sued because terrible people post terrible things however.

          I suppose that I just disagree with the idea that social media has created anything worse than where we’ve been since the fairness doctrine was scrapped. Is a circle jerk loop of citizens spewing nonsense that much more corrosive than what John Stewart complained about when he went on Crossfire? “Infotainment” and politics as blood sport is more of an enemy than random people posting dumb stuff imho.

          At the end of the day I’m not so sure society is better off if this guy thinks “fat albert” and goes about his day because he has no way to share it with the world. I also don’t think that these platforms are creating any more radicalization than before.

    Time for a pet peeve: If the best you have is to call her fat and gap toothed, you haven’t got much. She knows both things and doesn’t care. Meanwhile, she is smart and working hard and succeeding. It’s easy to make a joke that amounts to a 5th grade playground retort, and it is hard to actually do work to oppose her. The smart ass remarks just make her work harder, and you have done nothing to advance your position.

                  Chief, you can’t be that naive. I’m saying that most women ( or men ) dress in a way to make their body the most attractive possible. Most people feel that an overweight women shouldn’t wear a dress like Ms Dreyer as on. That’s not misogynistic. You feel different. Whatever.

    Why anyone has a Twitter or even Facebook account is utterly beyond me. Do people truly have that big or fragile egos combined with such little discipline that they have to tell the world about every emotion they have at any given time?

    With all that said, I’m actually kind of glad guys like him utilize social media, so they can expose themselves to the rest of us of what total idiots they are.

      I’ve never tweeted but I used FB for several years as a way to catch up/keep up with friends from the past. I took it as “social” media. But over the past few years it became more of a sounding post/echo chamber and I finally had enough. Deleted my account last spring and really haven’t missed it, except for the few friends I now have trouble tracking down. But sadly, I’ll pay that price to not listen to distant relatives or (former) friends rant weird/dangerous conspiracy theories.

        I have an account but need to edit it. There are some groups (“A**hole Boaters of Lake Lanier is one) that I use to find local services. I’ve found some really good deals on the marketplace, especially on used equipment.
        OTOH I have to scroll past the “What America needs now is Jesus bet you ain’t got the balls to share this” posts, and the far right “I stand with Donald Trump, he’s the greatest that ever lived. Bet you ain’t got the balls to share this” posts, and my far left High School English Teacher (who didn’t think it was funny at all when I pointed out Faulkner was kind of a pervert), and now some far left friends who are woo-hooing and high fiving each other, last but not least old friends I went to school with that grammatically mangle the English language badly enough that I think “I don’t remember you being that dumb”.
        And kittens. Fucking kittens. Especially the one hanging off a limb with the caption “Hang in their Fridays coming”. (Yes the misuse of there is intentional)
