Apple is entering the censorship game....

Post by 4t5 »

Apple has removed PARLER , an "open town square" used by conservatives and others, from their app store. I wont be buying an apple product, have an old LG phone, guess I'll keep nursing it along.

Google has already removed Parler from the Android APP store as well. So switching doesn't get you anything there. Big tech has always supported the Democrats.

You can follow most electronic products straight back to China.
LG is Korean.
I wish for you the courage to be unpopular. Popularity is history's pocket change. Courage to tell the truth is history's true currency.

If all these companies are colluding, will they not soon hear from the Feds?

When it comes to quashing conservatives, the Feds approve.

Not to be a PITA, but for now Constitutional is a pretty good stab at it.

sounds good to me. BUT the constitution has no binding legal authority, which is why and how we're where we're at.

I'd like to roll back the cfrs to about 1787 or so, and start with those laws and reformat the "congress" to require, on penalty of death, lawmaking the way it is supposed to be. As long as congress can pass a 500 page bill that no one has read, and appoint unelected federal agents to write regulations as law, then we are a million miles from the constitution. the list of wrongs is long, and, AND we cannot vote criminal legislators out of office. so we're kind of stuck. perhaps a meteor is falling toward the blot spot...

Apple is the most anti everything from their labor practices to making insane profit levels the left is always criticizing.
However every last of one of them have an apple phone in their hand.
Yes I know Apple installs nets to catch people committing suicide working for them as I type on a Mac, hope they don't miss.
Maybe they need some more of that liberal science, since they are on the other side of the world they should fall up.

So much for the new I-Mac I was going to order pretty soon. My current I-Mac is pushing 10yo, and has been nearly perfect. I'll see what LG or SamSung has to offer in a large laptop. :evil:

The problem isn't the hardware unfortunately it's the OS, Mac is linux based and there software is written specifically for their hardware.
Windows is just a virus magnet and designed to "mostly" work anywhere, haven't had a windows box in well over 20 years.

Buy the mac you plug it in, it works, it auto migrates all your c...ola if you let it, anything you plug in works, you don't need an anti-virus program.
I just don't think there is any other sane choice.

I just do not like Apple's business practices any more than I like Microsoft's. Both are as crooked as a bent corkscrew.

Sadly, you're correct. My I-Mac is about 10 years old and while it's slowing down a hair, it works perfectly.

Every 5 years I bought my mom the latest little square thing I could find in ebay. A new monitor here or there... No more fixing the computer every freaking holiday.

I hate Apple but I love my mac. I live in a Linux world using a Windows box is painful so I don't.
Pains are like drama. . Nope

Here in Europe Apple has been censoring hunting related ads for two years already. Trade apps are not allowed to show private or commercial ads for firearms, ammo, reloading equipment or hunting gear or clothing on an Apple device. The ads can still be opened in the IOS browser, however not in the related app, due to Apple policies.

GAB Social app (Twitter alternative) has also been removed from App store.

As a person doing their very best to stay off Fentanyl, I tend to experiment with a lot of drugs, normal opiates are just TicTac's.
Doing this allows me to go to work everyday, not suck a government t...t.

If they HAD to regulate my pain in jail correctly, that might just not be a bad gig for retirement. ;)

So you understand well how some people just want to be off on LaLa land, and others will fight through pain to avoid using that mess.

I've been fighting my well who might be the question for over a year for a replacement charge for my dorsal spine stimulator, I'm tempted to just try my phone charger but something that should be under $100 is $3,700 but it's durable goods and I think the ***'s don't want to eat that cost.

My doctor said it's time to get off Fentanyl it's going to kill you, sounded like good advice but between Lyrica, Gaba, and the like I also have to "experiment" because I can't get these pills but can get morphine (worthless) and all other kind of really dangerous (IMHO) drugs. I just want a ... pill with the right amount I can take couple times a day or whatever, a time release like grelease???

I had a 2 day old Fentanyl patch fall off and end up on my wives leg during the night, all was NOT well.

Fentanyl is a roller coaster with patches, put them one wait a bit they are good for a day maybe two, never three as advertised and it's just not consistent delivery.
Only think good about Fentanyl and I suspect you know this, work up to 50 then it stops working, hurt like .. for a couple weeks after you cold stop and then start back at 12 and work back up to 50 again. Roller coaster #2 and the walk between the rides is rough. I even tried soboxin (sp) nada thing....

I wish that we had better pain relief. Lots of people just don't believe how bad it can be.

If I wasn't F...g nuts, I would be suicidal or at least depressed.
Do I understand, hell yes, pain for 30+ years it's not easy.

I laugh at that Rambo "ignore pain", yeah I can do that.
Like learning the piano just takes a lots of practice.
