Donald Trump Presidential Aphorisms
TechNews "we’re also starting to see tech companies finally begin to grapple with the content that their platforms distribute." Don't make this one of those binary "us" versus "them" tribal things. I submit the media ignores me and you as much as it does them. Several are conservatives. I am, but that doesn't mean me, or a lot of us, want the entire nation to live exactly our way. As for media being monolithic- sorry, I view it as it is. They make varying versions of the same mistakes and have for years. I won't go into that in detail, because I'm exhausted on it. And yes, for the billionth time, I'm including conservative news sources such as Fox News in that. While I am not opposed to the travel ban, I don't necessarily think such things to be left to one man in the White House. I'd be happy with removing some of the executive branch's authority to make unilateral policy on immigration on one side or the other - amazingly happy, actually. But I know I'm fighting both sides on that, because so many like "their President" to have huge powers. I don't, whether it's who I voted for or not.
"Last summer, in the thick of the election, Chris Tolles, the conservative CEO of Topix, tweeted out a response to the political turmoil gripping the world: “Asking for tech to ‘take a stand’ on issues? Look down at the device and out at the platforms enabling the conversation. That’s the stand.”-According to TechNews. You are now ruled by the 1% - these folks all care about their bank accounts, not you or I. The whole cabinet is made up of unqualified or unscrupulous people. Corruption abounds. I feel for folks that felt they haven't had a voice and I hope this guy gets you some of what you are hoping for but I fear he has played you all and you will not be better off because of it. But on the other hand. Trump voters, those in the middle of this country, or in the south at times. Those of use who aren't in big cities. Yeah, a lot of us are white, some aren't, and that doesn't automatically make us bigots.
