Patented but Garmin had to file a federal lawsuit for accuracy.

And there are currently multiple lawsuits in different stages of jurisprudence right now specifically about this issue.

NOTE to those concerned: turn your privacy setting OFF.

now the more leftist we get the more authoritarian we become. THAT has actually already begun.
Communism = left-wing authoritarian extremism

Fascism = right-wing authoritarian extremism

Obviously you truly don't know what right-wing is if you think that. There are two scales: Left-Right and Libertarian-Authoritarian. To be a libertarian you do not control social freedoms, to be an authoritarian you want to. Left and right refers to economic policy, which is mutually exclusive from social freedoms that belong to the Libertarian or Authoritarian camp.

Dems AND GOP = right-wing authoritarian

Socialist Party = left-wing authoritarian

Constitution Party = right-wing authoritarian

Green Party = left-wing libertarian

Libertarian Party = right-wing libertarian

Well, since you appear so certain about everything, then go and make an alternative Facebook for those who share your opinions.

Stop using Facebook if you don't like it.

Why do you need an alternative to Facebook anyway. Hell, why do you need Facebook in the first place?

People act as if the world didn't turn before there was social media.

Huh? What do you mean "by the American standard?" If that's just some boilerplate catchphrase, then feel free to consult Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Pinochet, or any number of other far-right authoritarians.

Seems to me this board is the conservative alternative to Facebook.

I use FB and won't apologize for it. It's a great way to reconnect and stay in touch with long lost friends and family. If you don't like it then don't use it, very simple. Complaining about something you don't use on another form of the same damn thing is really kind of lame.
