    Re: Debates


    Becoming the minority?! Half the current supreme court has been installed by presidents elected by a minority of the population. If trumps nomination goes through we will have a majority of the court appointed this way.

    The concept of Biden "court packing" is so disingenuous considering that is exactly what McConnell did in '16 by refusing to vote on Garland. We rode through the 2016 election with a 8 person court because one man elected by the people of Kentucky. You and I had no say in that. None at all.

    Trump brand republicans are a shrinking minority. Bush (both H and W) and Regan era republicans are supporting Joe Biden in droves. How many times in history have we had something like the Lincoln Project? The distaste for trump even within the party is so strong that all trump has to do is tweet at the Lincoln Project and they suddenly raise another $1M to run ads against him. That is unprecedented!

    If you are a republican party faithful, look again. The party isn't what it used to be.

    Conversely look at Joe Biden. He isn't the extreme leftie trump makes him out to be.

    This is a real thing, there are some folks that think YouTube was a primary driver of Trump's win in 2016.

    Like all social media, YouTube is designed to be as addictive as possible, the more people glued to it the more money they make. They want to serve up another video as soon as the first one is done so you don't close the browser window.

    Originally, the algorithm for the next video was "similar to the one they're viewing, but slightly more popular". The idea was that if the video had broader appeal, there would be a higher chance the viewer would be interested. However, this led to the so-called "Gangnam Style effect". Since Gangnam Style was the most popular video on YouTube, if you watched forever you'd eventually get to it. Along the way you'd end up seeing tons of stuff that you'd seen before and didn't care about.

    So sometime around 2013-14 they changed the algorithm so the next video was "similar to the one they're viewing, but slightly more obscure". This actually made YouTube far more addictive, because people were now seeing stuff that they'd never seen before, allowing them to delve deep into their specific interests. The problem was politics, and more specifically conspiracy theories. Someone would start the evening trying to understand the details of the Whitewater scandal, and by the end of the evening they were watching videos about Hillary sprouting horns and devouring children in the middle of the night.

    Because of this algorithm change, crazy conspiracy theory videos have increased viewership YouTube by some ridiculous factor, and there's legitimate concern that large numbers of people are voting based on what they're watching.

    How about some of us conservatives search out news. Waiting for hard hitting questions from the media or investigative reporting doesn't happen in the world of NESR. Call it the Fake New Swamp effect. Enjoy a sample.

    I guarantee you youtube didn't take down any video of that.

    And a compounding factor is the amount of content made to appear as though it's coming from some regular-joe individual but it's really propaganda from either a political org or conspiracy group.

    Propaganda. Some black guy shows a old video showing Biden hugging KKK members and celebrating his defeat of school integration. He must have used actors.

    Here is some of that propaganda. He never said this. It was dubbed in. By a conspiracy group funded by a political org. What he really said was all Americans are good people and should live healthy prosperous lives.

    And Trump is the divisive one.

    No, I was too busy whipping my back with rusty razor wire because a debate chair apparently has (shock/horror) an opinion!

    Trump won this one easily. Biden's team is running around this morning trying to clean up the end of oil comment by Biden. Wonder how people will get to the track to race their electric bikes? More important to dump Trump cause you don't like his not a career politician style.
    Who built those cages Joe? Poor old man needed that DNC girl to save him when Trump was crushing him.

    You could have written that before the debate, because you are that deaf from having your entire head up Trump's dumper.

    Once again showing your ignorance.

    No federal backing for oil producers = Oes noes, no oil!
    Defund the police = Oes noes, no police?

    You know what I took away from Joe's oil comments. I took away that he told the damn truth, whether people like it or not.

    Republicans are crowing about how it alienated some voters. He fucked up because he should have lied, right?

    And you say Trump isn't the politician. He's a lying pathetic sack of shit and he lost the debate by a fucking mile.

    11 more days. He is imploding before our eyes.
