    There's nothing wrong with there being disagreement over what constitutes a recession. However, since I've been following politics, the media has pretty much accepted the two consecutive quarters of negative growth definition and largely viewed efforts to redefine it as self-serving BS. But now that it might impact a president they like (or at least prefer to the alternative), suddenly they're taking redefinition seriously.

    Phil Magness is a solid libertarian.

    Here's another example. The following post that I made violated Yahoo's community standards:

    We know the politically protected need not act with responsibility; consequences are only for those who dare question excuses and instability.

    You like to push Yahoo's envelope. :clap:
    If you could just figure out what words are the triggers you could use other words thst mean the same thing but wouldn't get flagged.
    I would like to see that.

    By this point, I think the Yahoo posting review algorithm works as such:

    If posted by user "bystander," block comment.

    That could work - until some flaming liberal figures out what it meant and flags it to Yahoo's attention for (1) removal of the post and (2) updating of the trigger-word list.

    It's a start, but Licht would have to shitcan the propagandists and hacks. Guys like Don Lemon and many others would have to go and be replaced by real journalists.

    Feels like it should be a passionate issue among fans. Unfortunately, it appears that we are only groping for a solution. It must suck to be unfairly burdened.

    I mean. They live streamed it. There is no “did they?” It’s like trumps twitter confessions to crimes.

    If the church did receive permission surely there is some proof. The church should just show the proof.
    Either way this is amusing.

    There is an article on Yahoo announcing that Biden is ending the "Stay in Mexico" policy. I posted this in the Yahoo comment section:

    "This is why Abbott is sending them north. Y'all love them. You take care of them. It's that simple. But Liberals will find any reason to attack what I'm saying because they are mental. The thing is, I live in South Texas. I've been here my whole life. You Yankee Liberals actually don't like them or you'd be here. But you're not and you'd rather the border states deal with it while you use them as political capital as virtue signaling is your primary weapon. When Trump said Mexico was a sh*thole country, Liberals screamed about how insensitive he was. Now they are saying the migrants can't stay in Mexico because of the extreme violence. Liberals also say the US is violent because of our gun laws but the migrants are safer over here. You can't make this stuff up."

    It was rejected within two minutes.

    I bet it was the use of the word liberal.
    How can ANY person think this is a good idea?
    It has to be Soros.

    I'm trying to figure it out but I can't. It's just so blatant. I'm convinced they have coached them through intermediary activists to ask for amnesty.

    For them to be complaining so much about Abbott sending them to New York shows how arrogant they are. They are calling Abbott a trafficker. They are ruthless people.

    If Biden is on a roll, it's because he stepped on the cinnamon bun he dropped at the breakfast table.

    They proudly announce NYC as a "sanctuary city" - seems like they would be glad to offer sanctuary to the illegals.

    Twitter, Facebook, and I think Alphabet (Youtube) were started with government money and they all employ out of the FBI and CIA. They are private/public tentacles wrapping themselves around us and the very definition of fascism.
