You’ve captured the Libtard’s perfectly! Thanks Branco. Hope your day is blessed.
Kinda looks like that Burny supporter has been enjoying the benefits of capitalism, the way he’s hanging over that chair.
Suggested Subtitle: Che wiz! Know bias here.
It’s why I have several honestly fake facebooo accounts.
I thought everybody knew that the Online giants slanted the news. Remember that not only do Google and Microsoft read all your emails – they actually own them. (Read your user agreements).
There was a reason Hillary hired a Google bigwig for her campaign. They are mining all the Google emails to understand what people are saying about her and the competition. This also allows them to target email ads much more effectively.
It’s funny what you can accomplish when you read people’s mail.
It’s been awhile since I’ve read the Google agreements, and they certainly do change often enough, but the last time I read them Google does not “own” your content. They do have the right to display it and process it in various ways, but you maintain the ownership rights to your content. Granted the terms are confusing and even somewhat contradictory, but it seems to me like they’re covering themselves with the rights that they need in order for their services to work the way they do.
So it’s important to understand the context of what their services do. And one of the biggest things they do is targeted advertising, and that targeting involves many forms of very sophisticated “big data analytics” which includes various forms text analysis including sentiment analysis where they can determine “what” or “who” you’re talking about and, to a certain degree of accuracy, “how” you “feel” about it.
So, can they target ads at you based on the content of your emails? Yes. Could they, in theory, sell a list of “people who hate Hillary” to the Clinton campaign? Probably. Could they steal the details of your invention out of your email and patent it themselves? No.
FBS Funny But Sad. Never used Facebook myself, but I can see this happening other places, like Yahoo. TY AB.
My son lived in a house with 5 others a mere mile from the Google plex. Four of the five worked for google. After one week I had dubbed it the hive… my son could only take the hive mindset for a couple of months and returned to a seattle suburb which, by comparison, has more of us without hive mentality. But I quit posting anything thought provoking on facebook or the internet. No one’s mind was ever changed.
“No one’s mind was ever changed.”
You are so right. I had the same realization and it prompted my retirement from the use of “social media.” Facebook and the like are largely “echo chambers” where people go to get confirmation of their existing beliefs and biases. And the largely anonymous nature of them makes it easy for people to quickly fall back into ad hominems and other nasty attacks rather than actually engaging in meaningful dialog and debate.
This blog is one of the very few places I post anything online any more, and I do so because LI users (mostly) engage in real dialog. It was sad to see it devolve into a cesspool over recent months due to the election. Hopefully it will recover to what it was before we all got Trumped.
Not to call Branco intellectually lazy, but this was too easy for a wit like his.
Please do one of the all the idiot conservatives who still use facebook, twitter, amazon and all the other companies comprised of mainly people who would just as soon see us dead for our viewpoints and create policy reflective of that ideology.
Hell at least people are standing up against Target.
That may involve a self-portrait on my part. 🙂 … BTW Thank you, I think.
Libs that think like Andy have really changed the finish line for everyone, including you.
So, relax sir. You can now have someone else do your self-portrait.
I’ve got some stick drawings I can do of you if you are interested. And if the libs complain, I can play the victim and say they are humiliating and degrading me by pointing out my poor drawing skills and talent ( something that clearly will never happen to one as talented as you are ).
Either way, it’s a win win.
Why would you give your dollars, your personal information and your patronage to a company that hates your beliefs? Oh and don’t think there isn’t a giant liberal bent in the hiring patterns there either (which might explain the actual absence of black people at twitter).
The libs are right about voting with their dollars. When a company chooses to publicly insert themselves into the arena of public policy, the cost/hit in patronage is a factor.
The info you give to these companies is painfully more personal than buying chicken or a hot glue gun.
Ben and Jerry’s could be made of urine for all I care, I’m not buying it.
Libs have used boycotts successfully to change how business does business today. There is no disagreement there I hope.
Amazon lost 99.9% of my business when they pulled the confederate flag. I won’t say “never again” but I try hard to buy anywhere else first.
You can still buy a confederate flag from this place.
I just read a piece on a Republican comic and how difficult it is to be a standup comic in today’s PC climate. He described how it is impossible to be “Edgy” and a liberal at the same time because there are many topics that liberals cannot cover because of PC. For the liberal comic Republicans and conservatives are fair game. But anything to do with race or abortion is taboo. It shows us all, along with your cartoon, that there is a vast leftwing conspiracy to use every available force against us. ALL media is controlled by liberals and the motive is always the same, money.
