    I support the Timberwolves so I'm used to whatever the Kings are going to throw at me

    I'm really excited with the prospect of having a portuguese in the nba for the first time. Anyone here follows college basketball? What chances do you think Neemias has in the current Kings squad?
  • I got the Janssen vaccine, but I'm reading in some places it's the least effective against the new variants. For those following this closer than me, what are the chances of me being required to get another shot in the near future?

    My trumper uncle just posted "we're supposed to listen to these guys who have been paid by cnn in the last few months?"

    Weird, most other gooners I know are not optimistic at all and think we'repretty shit atm.

    I don't know why you keep bringing up the word conspiracy. It doesn't apply here at all. Do you think saying powerful people use their money and influence on the media to make themselves and their businesses look good is a conspiracy? Is saying...

    It just strikes me as strange that you seem to see Bezos as two different people. Amazon Bezos is a businessman who spends truckloads of cash lobbying to further his interests even if that hurts a lot of people, many of whom are his employees...

    Does it really seem so farfetched to you, knowing how he conducts himself in his other businesses, apparently taking advantage of everything he can? With the WaPo he's just a good samaritan? I don't buy it. Saying ruthless businessmen do shady...

    But you agreed it's impossible to prove it one way or another, or did I misunderstand?

    What is that even supposed to mean?
  • maniak replied to the thread Facebook, Amazon etc.....
    If it's impossible to prove one way or another, why do you chose to believe he doesn't interfere? In previous posts you said he was a business man who takes advantage of what the system allows him in order to profit. Now that he owns a newspaper...

    These lefties and their cancel culture.
  • maniak replied to the thread Facebook, Amazon etc.....
    Oh c'mon of course they are. Just because the law allows Bezos to be a cnut, it doesn't mean he has to be one. He chooses to be one and so it's fair to criticize him for it. You seem to be suggesting voting is the only moment of civic...
  • maniak replied to the thread Facebook, Amazon etc.....
    You seem to be saying that because most people are not well informed and don't participate in the democratic process as they should, it's somehow ok if they are taken advantage of by a savvy and ruthless businessman because he's just using the...
  • maniak replied to the thread Facebook, Amazon etc.....
    That's not true, plenty of business people pay their employees decent wages and give them good working conditions. Bezos doesn't, so he should be criticized. Democracy isn't so simple as you're making it out to be. There are plenty of issues in...
