I still think Trump should have offered Sanders a spot in his cabinet.

2018-01-09 22:40:54 UTC  

He'd have instantly and horribly crashed the entirety of the media narrative against him

Bernie seems like a well meaning dude but his policies just wouldn't worj

2018-01-09 22:42:53 UTC  

Like, I wish the Dems would go back into Trump's twitter history and point out the... I think it was *five* times Trump praised single-payer healthcare? They could actually corner him into a position to actually maybe get it done, or make him out to be a liar about that, but in order to do that they themselves would want to have single-payer healthcare, as well.

2018-01-09 22:43:20 UTC  

Many don't.

2018-01-09 22:43:30 UTC  

He says he supports it but not Obamacare. Dems won’t budge on the Obamacare issue.

2018-01-09 22:54:24 UTC  

Obamacare is an abominable piece of legislation

2018-01-09 22:54:43 UTC  

At the same time I do agree with the goal of single-payer healthcare

2018-01-09 22:55:01 UTC  

With the option for people that want private insurance to do so, without being required to pay tax for SPH.

2018-01-09 22:55:28 UTC  

I don't think Obamacare even is single-payer, at least not in the same way that it single-payer exists in every other modern western nation.

2018-01-09 22:55:35 UTC  

No, it isn't.

2018-01-09 22:55:38 UTC  

Or even any kind of socialized healthcare, for that matter.

2018-01-09 22:56:03 UTC  

Yeah, we have medicare, but that only applies to certain people, if I remember.

2018-01-09 22:56:36 UTC  

I don't make enough money to afford healthcare in the US, myself, but at least now I'm no longer in danger of being fined for not being able to afford it. lol

2018-01-09 22:57:21 UTC  

"Can't afford healthcare? We'll just fine you and make you pay us money that you don't have."

2018-01-09 22:59:18 UTC  

Here's to hoping I don't get seriously ill or have a serious accident, or else I'll get slapped with a medical bill I'll never be able to pay off. lol

2018-01-09 23:01:03 UTC  

Sorry, didn't mean for that to turn into the mini rant that it did.

Welcome to 1984?
(I didn't think this belonged in Breaking News so I'm posting it here. let me know if this is better in Tech)

2018-01-09 23:38:41 UTC  

I’m not surprised about this at all. Plus isn’t it pretty old news?

2018-01-09 23:39:09 UTC  

Hello! ^_^

2018-01-09 23:53:16 UTC  

I think the functionality hit today? the DC article is posted as today at least

2018-01-09 23:53:32 UTC  

They been skewing for a long time though

2018-01-09 23:54:05 UTC  

I switched off google after running some searches in DDG and Google side by side a few months back

2018-01-09 23:55:33 UTC  

I use bing

2018-01-09 23:55:47 UTC  

It's pretty centrist and I like the rewards

2018-01-09 23:56:07 UTC  

I switched about six months ago because of the fact checking and doctored search results but it’s good that they are bringing it up again.

2018-01-09 23:57:41 UTC  

I use DuckDuckGo

2018-01-09 23:58:19 UTC  


2018-01-09 23:58:47 UTC  

Ditched most of google besides youtube.

2018-01-09 23:59:18 UTC  

I'm still figuring out what I like to use and not, but have overall cut out pretty much anything google related except for YouTube and Hangouts.

2018-01-09 23:59:25 UTC  

I don't even use Facebook/Twitter.

2018-01-10 00:00:23 UTC  

Facebook I deleted a while back. Have twitter still but for non political stuff.

2018-01-10 00:01:08 UTC  

any stories in detroit?

2018-01-10 00:01:14 UTC  

going to be there on the 13-15

2018-01-10 00:03:27 UTC  

Same... I still use Google Docs. Haven't found a good alternative for it (yeah, there is Office online, but Google's is better IMHO). Stopped using Facebook and Messenger last year. I don't post to Twitter, I only read sometimes. Can't dump Whatsapp yet, just too many people use that.
Haven't actually deleted Facebook yet, because I need still need it to logon to some sites. 😕

2018-01-10 00:11:40 UTC  

What happens in detroit really?
