I think those cave dwellers are a LONG way from understanding multiplication let alone AI.
Wrong as usual.

DOJ is comprised of groups like the FBI, who as we all remember based on the previous hoopla are "non-partisan" they work for the country, are career folks, and don't work for the admin.

Additionally, the "guy" who asked the stupid questions was a Senator, not the DOJ.

Simple facts, you should know better.

You don't get to buy my stuff, if your political thinking is not what I want it to be.

My emphasis is on the fact that many complaining are perfectly okay with companies that help the GOP because "freedom"... blah blah.

Im am actually strongly anti monopoly/ oligopoly, regardless of who they help. My reasoning has more to do with wealth/ income inequality as I believe that would do more to reduce the concentration of wealth than huge tax rates.

Using a Product that has become part of everyday life in the USA as a toy, to take away political power, if you don't eat your peas.

So far, all of the significant, PROVEN instances of domenstic campaign fraud are almost exclusively committed by R's. I live in NC, we know first hand. Georgia can probably back me up here too.

As typical with most things from the Trump base. Look at what they project on others, and you'll almost find what is in their mind, and their playbook.

This all shows again just how phony the Russian collusion narrative is. They say that Google has the ability to manipulate over 2.4 million votes on the low end. Over 10 million votes on the high end. We are being played!!

I honestly think that people don't appreciate the threat that Google, Facebook, and the internet infrastructure near-monopolies present.

Perhaps we just deserve the world we'll end up with.

Oh, I do. Not a day goes by that I do not wish we were back to pre-internet, pre-smartphonophilia days. Hell, I'd even go back to snail mail days.

There you go again, demeaning an entire group of people based on their political affiliation. Yet I suspect you would object to someone being prejudiced and demeaning an entire group of people based on their race, correct?
I might have issues with the current Democratic party because they have radically changed just in the last decade, but I do not assume all are idiots incapable of intelligent thought.
Nor do I use one example of a politician asking stupid questions, and imply all politicians from that party are as dumb.
For example how would you like it if everyone judged Democrats or black people based on this Rhodes scholar;

As to this Google issue, I am sure you would be totally fine with it if it was purposely favoring the Republican party, right?
