A person cannot just say whatever one wants in a public setting. There *are* federal and states laws against certain forms of speech. Here in the good old USA free speech doesn’t mean *any* speech. If you’re on a high horse about this you may be on the wrong horse.

I figure you can say anything for which you’re willing to accept the consequences. πŸš“

tcr! tcr! · Jan 8, 2021 at 9:22 pm

Exactly this ^^^

Do what you what but you might end up in jail, or worse: suspended on Twitter.

So many have no idea what a Terms of Service is and how it relates to free speech.

tcr! tcr! · Jan 9, 2021 at 7:41 am

Totally. Too many people on the internet act like it’s their god given right to act like an asshole, regardless if violates laws or whatever platform’s policies they’re using.

I often wonder if people would talk the way they do online if they were in the grocery store. Because if they did 1- they’d get kicked out of the store, 2- banned from said store, and 3- possibly face legal action.

But now that I’m typing this out loud, I’m sure the current president is the same in real life as he is on Twitter. So yeah, he most likely would be kicked out of the grocery store. And then some moron would yell “BUT FREE SPEECH!!”

You can’t call in a bomb threat to a school, you can’t tell fire into a crowded theater. You can’t verbally assault someone. Say whatever you want, but there can and should be consequences sometimes.

Kevin Ketchum controls What’s Happening

tcr! · Sep 21, 2018 at 10:08 am

In lawsuit, Elburn company claims Facebook page secretly favors advertisers

In its lawsuit, Patriot Heating and Cooling argues Kevin Ketchum gives preferential treatment to advertisers on the “What’s Happening” pages — for which Ketchum serves as administrator. The site has more than 100,000 members in Aurora, Batavia, Campton Hills, Elgin, Geneva, Naperville, Elgin and St. Charles.

The suit argues that Ketchum has intentionally deleted posts from community members that are favorable to the competitors of Ketchum’s advertisers, let a disparaging post about Patriot stay up on the Facebook page, thereby hurting the company’s reputation and future business, and has engaged in a deceptive practice by taking ads without disclosing this information.

This is from 2017 but still good. I’ve had my own run-ins with Ketchum and his “What’s Happening” Facebook groups.

Actively deleting recommendations if they’re not on his advertiser list is pretty shady when most group members think it’s community page.

He clearly hasn’t grasped the rule of using the verbiage “sponsored content” or “paid content”

tcr! tcr! · Sep 21, 2018 at 3:40 pm

Nope. He’s definitely grasped the concept of the delete button though… πŸ˜‰

“Pensions are bullet proof”

O.J. Simpson Could Take Home $25,000 a Month When He’s Released From Prison

O.J. Simpson was granted parole Thursday — meaning he will be a free man as early as Oct. 1.

But what will Simpson’s life be like when he gets out of jail? Simpson still owes tens of millions of dollars in the wake of a 1997 civil lawsuit, in which he was found liable for the wrongful deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, and ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages to the survivors’ families.

Even so, Simpson will probably be quite comfortable financially when he is released from jail, thanks to pensions that may pay out more than $25,000 per month — funds that aren’t subject to seizure by creditors.

First Muslim woman judge found dead in the Hudson

First Muslim woman judge found dead in the Hudson

Judge found dead in Hudson River was ‘force for good’

A pioneering judge, who became the first Muslim woman in US history to serve on the bench, was found dead Wednesday — washed up on the Manhattan side of the Hudson River, sources said.

Her husband later identified her body. Sources said it showed no obvious signs of trauma or injuries indicating criminality or foul play, and that her death appeared to be a suicide.

“She was a pioneer,” he said. “Through her writings, her wisdom, and her unshakable moral compass, she was a force for good whose legacy will be felt for years to come. I was proud to appoint her to the state’s highest court and am deeply saddened by her passing.”

After reading the article a couple of times it just doesn’t sound like she would be the type to commit suicide. You never know about people of course but considering where a good vocal percent of country seems to be regarding Muslims I doubt if she just jumped in the river to do herself in. Do people really do themselves in by drowning?

***Originally there were a lot of words here that made light of the fear of drowning. I probably shouldn’t do that. I have been able to swim and completely unafraid of drowning since I can remember. You’d have to be hellbent to drown yourself. If you learn to swim you’ll wonder why you waited so long. People can float. That is not my arrogant opinion.

Now flying, on the other hand, is harder. I’ve had the power of flight for quite some time and it comes in damn handy. It’s kinda hard to teach though. I always end up with these Nervous Nelly types for students and when it comes time to soar or sink, they practically always disappoint me.
“Why do we have to start way up here on the 7th floor? Can’t I just go up on the roof of the garage?”
You’ve never heard such whining.

For art’s sake! Photoing neighbors with zoom lens not a privacy invasion

For art’s sake! Photoing neighbors with zoom lens not a privacy invasion

An artist who hid in his apartment’s shadows and deployed a telephoto lens to photograph his neighbors through their glass-walled apartment is not liable for invading their privacy, a New York state appellate court has ruled.

The appeals court called it a “technological home invasion” but said the defendant used the pictures for art’s sake. Because of that, the First Department of the New York Appellate Division ruled Thursday in favor of artist Arne Svenson, who snapped the pics from his lower Manhattan residence as part of an art exhibit called “The Neighbors.”
