Price gouging
  • No I agree... but ultra-wealthy business owners historically raise their prices during election season when a Democrat is President to try to get people to vote Republican so they can acquire even more wealth.

  • Now no one goes
  • I could see Republican congressmen saying the same thing. It wouldn't surprise me one bit.

  • Comer blasted Biden for email aliases — after doing same to hide Chinese weed fumble
  • Fair... but even I love my coke zero. The kind of coke they do though seems to make them sniff a lot when they talk.

  • Price gouging
  • There is one way you can vote everyday, and that is with your wallet. If I see you buying a Tesla... I'm going to assume you want Trump to win. Where you spend your money matters.

  • Kari Lake's election challenge lawyer suspended from practicing in Arizona
  • The same Kari Lake that admitted in court that she was a liar? These Republicans will say anything until it comes time to actually show evidence in court, then they admit they have nothing.

  • Man banned from The Las Vegas Sphere after lighting up a bong during a Phish show
  • Okay... I get how others around him may have not liked the smoke, but when it comes to drugs... why is alcohol accepted?

  • Comer blasted Biden for email aliases — after doing same to hide Chinese weed fumble
  • They need Trump to win so they can keep getting their coke (and no not the kind you drink).

  • Rabbi coming thru with the language of fellow nerds to put things into context...
  • But sir, just because we (Israel) killed thousands of women and children prior to the war isn't relevant as to why they attacked us.

  • Justice Clarence Thomas Acknowledges He Should Have Disclosed Free Trips From Billionaire Donor
  • If Democrats win Senate & House in 2024, they better freaking make it a priority to change the laws about Supreme Court justices.

  • Trump judge alerts lawyers to social-media post from ‘juror’s cousin’ saying a conviction was in the bag
  • Furthermore, it is expected that the comment "my cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted" will be the Trump legal defense teams' strongest argument on appeal. (Parody)

  • Trump Threatens Public 'Breaking Point' If Jailed. Schiff Says He's 'Inciting Violence'
  • I'd honestly love to see a new trove of his supporters getting arrested and locked away and then apologizing with crocodile tears.

  • A Holocaust museum cut a survivor from its speaker's list — for protesting the war in Gaza
  • For a long time Holocaust education has been more about getting sympathy in order to commit more genocide, but nothing to do with learning to prevent it.

  • California sheriff quips he’s ‘changing teams,’ urges support for ‘convicted felon’ Trump
  • Riverside County... Is that also known as Meth County? Explains why people vote for him..

  • Sanders reups vow to boycott ‘war criminal’ Netanyahu’s address to Congress
  • I am very much against Trump, but merely talking about Biden supporting genocide which is truthful shouldn't trigger you so much. Be mad at the Democratic party if you don't like people talking about the truth. The only reason you are scared of Trump winning is because of stupid decisions by the Democratic party, not because of people telling the truth about Biden.

  • Sanders reups vow to boycott ‘war criminal’ Netanyahu’s address to Congress
  • Democrats are too scared to stand up to Israel. If you get on their bad side then they'll label you as an antisemitic and fund campaigns with that message. Israel requires people over the age of 18 to join their army, including cyberwarfare operations like Unit 8200.

    A lot of people when they view social media they don't try to make their own judgements, but instead look at the top comments to try to form an opinion. They want to be able to fit in and believe that social media is a good indicator of what is the correct way to think about something. Since Israel frequently targets social media, the top comments regarding subjects that impact a persons opinion on Israel are usually crafted to support Israel.

    Biden knows standing up against Israel would likely destroy his campaign. However, in this case, his support for Israel and genocide is likely to result in a close election that may end up ruining his campaign as well. The best option Democrats have is another candidate, but they know they'd need someone strong like Bernie and they are also bound to their corporate donors, so they'd rather have a Trump win than present a candidate that is more progressive that would impact their donors who they are loyal to.

  • The kids are alright
  • That is her phone background. She likes Pennywise so much she is trying to look like him.

  • [rule] of law
  • Look at what they said and did in regards to Hunter Biden, and what they say and do now. They are total hypocrites that don't believe any rules apply to them, but only to other people.

  • X planning town hall with Donald Trump as Elon Musk reportedly gets cozy with the former president
  • None. Musk can't be President so he is willing to try to make a deal with Trump where he sucks his dick to control the office.

  • Anyone else have their account terminated or got through to support?

    About a month ago I got a notification that my subscription had been refunded and then another email that my account was terminated:

    > You are receiving this email because we have identified suspicious activity on your account. In order to protect our platform, we have refunded and canceled your subscription. You will no longer have access to ChatGPT Plus service.

    This was after using the service for two months. I emailed and sent them a message almost immediately since I could prove my identity, but they haven't responded back in almost a month. Their customer support appears to be non-existent.

    I keep wanting to sign back up, but I'm still pissed about it. I'm guessing it is because I used a virtual card when I signed up and they don't stay active for very long so I have to create a new one for each month of service. Usually I just get a failed payment notification and update my payment info with a new one which pulls from my bank account.

    It sucks not being able to use the service though because it was so helpful at helping with programming tasks and Bard isn't nearly as good. Has anyone had any luck getting through to support?
