    When I go to that site, it wants me to give them money before proceeding. Do you have anything else? C'mon... first you can't name any lies... then you send me to a pay site... this gets sillier and sillier.

    There's that ridiculous tactic used by the RW again.

    "Ah..so you don't offer evidence to prove what everyone accepts as fact! I win!!"

    It forces them to publish political nonsense no matter what it says

    So, the 2.89 billion monthly users are all just posting liberal propaganda. Pictures of puppies, babies and bowls of soup is just liberal propaganda. Basically anything that is not crazy RW conspiracy stuff is liberal propaganda. Okey dokey.

    Of course people talk about it freely. That's why FB is such an annoying place, and it was even worse when Trump was president and had all his apologists using Facebook to publicly hump his leg all day long.

    You're being silly. Libs are posting lots of stuff that is politically neutral... about their kids, their new cars.... all sorts of stuff.. Not all of it is propaganda, I never said so. Liberal posters, no matter what the subject ... are free to post. They are not the issue here at all. They have the freedom to post what they want. They are able to post anything they want... their accounts are active. The millions of folks who support Trump often cannot post anything about their puppy or their new baby... because their accounts have been cancelled.

    As you say, people can discuss Biden good... Orange man bad" freely. Its the "Trump is a good guy" post that gets your account cancelled... and THAT is what Abbott is fighting.

    Republicans can also win elections. We'll check back with you November next year.

    Absolutely not true. I know liberal posters who have been banned a number of times

    You know that is not true either. Most of my connections are Trump supporters who annoy the crap out of everyone by flooding the place with RW political nonsense. I dont know anyone who has been banned for that.

    No, it won't, and you know it.

    Your posts are systematically dishonest, so I am done with this. Anyone who used Facebook knows you don't get banned for the reasons you claim.

    You have shown that liberal denial of reality is alive and well.

    And he was found NOT GUILTY... so what? Lots of juries have split decisions. It takes unanimity to convict. What's your point?

    I understand that many Democrats will vote for Trump in 2024 just so they can impeach him again... for a THIRD TIME.

    Like the guy said, left-wing wackazoids. There are a lot of those in the GOP. Time to get rid of them.

    Principled conservatives and centrists are not "left-wing wackazoids." Only a right-wing wackazoid would even suggest such a thing.

    Yes - and a funny pic - but it is a serious thing going on - and while masks are an intrusion of sorts - mandatory vaxing is a different kettle of fish.. one based on a whole lot of propaganda - and misinformation - bad science /bad use of statistics . and drastic omission of context in an effort to "manufacture consent" .

    And this is disturbing in a most orwellian way.

    If the 1919 flu pandemic proved anything, it is that government's do not need to wait for consent before vaccinating.

    a valid but kind of meaningless point w/r to the propaganda machine. We all know what martial law is - the question is whether or not it was/is justified.

    The Spanish flue may have been .. not the case here - that I can see.

    An obvious misrepresentation of covid vaccines. Apparently, you think it's okay for you to mislead people.

    Junior can avoid places with faces if he doesn't want to get vaccinated. Home school, no job, no sports teams, no restaurants, no clubs, etc. He has no right to spread the virus to other people.
