Flat Earth Media / Re: Flat Earth Conspiracy Love Song
« Last post by mahogany on June 22, 2024, 01:55:38 AM »


FES was mentioned in this video description: "What do you get when a Flat Earth Society member and a Jet Propulsion Physicist fall in love? A MUSICAL, of course! Watch all the way through to see if these star crossed lovers can find common ground and put aside their massive differences."


Just a correction to your above statement: FES (Flat Earth Society) was not mentioned in the video. It wasn't about a Flat Earth Society member and a Jet Propulsion Physicist falling in love. What was mentioned and what it's about is a Flat Earther with a Conspiracy type paranoid mindset and a Jet Propulsion Physicist falling in love.

Trump says CEOs who aren't with him should be fired.  Because threatening people who don't whorship him is totally a normal thing. >_>

"In two long Truth Social posts on Tuesday quoting a Wall Street Journal article,..."

Seems Trump didn't say it...he quoted the paper.

The paper was relating the news that corporate tax rates under Biden would be raised from 21% to 28%.

It seems the author(s) of the article are the ones who believe CEO's should be fired if this happens.

I believe the CEO's should be fired if it happens.

Why did you cosign a lie?

Is it just normal for you?

As Honk said, you didn't bother reading Trump's post.  Here, I circled the part where he said it then quoted an article.


You're not a good fanatic if you haven't read all of his posts.

Flat Earth Community / community question

Hi! I would like to ask a question if I may :)

I was thinking about the usage of social media and the way it helps us get in contact with other people. And I was wondering if there is a difference in feeling of community now vs without the extensive use of internet? So do you feel like you belong to an online community or more an offline community? and did social media have influence on this?

If you had taken the time to follow the links in the article instead of just assuming, you would have seen that no, the WSJ were not the ones who called for anyone to be fired, Trump was.

I don't think this is even especially newsworthy. It's a dog-bites-man story. It is interesting, however, how regularly Trump fans convince themselves that he's one of them, a common man up against the elite, when he so regularly demonstrates that he's entirely on the side of rich people and big business.

Maybe, but that's the most recent figure I found, taken from one of his arrests last year.

Which means nothing more than Trump claimed to weigh that much. He's obviously lying, just like he's obviously lying about his height. Trump's height and weight won't be accurately recorded unless he's actually convicted and sent to prison.

Fair.   So... 1 1/2 trumps?

The fact that you guys had to post a video which starts with Trump in the middle of a story discredits your claim.

Biden's gaffs are a continual stream of national embarrassment.



Nobody is denying that Trump was in the middle of a story. Like I said, I don't think it's a big deal that Trump is entertaining his followers as a rally with nonsense about sharks and batteries, but simply pointing out that he was in the middle of a story doesn't actually address the primary criticism of his story being completely bonkers.

It's also pretty funny that you're complaining about missing context, and then you link to a video that's just a compilation of various isolated verbal stumbles taken from a number of Biden's speeches. You could make anyone in the world sound like an idiot if you compiled every "um" and "uh" they uttered over the course of a week into one video.

All true, but the hypocrisy of them lapping up his incoherent rambling while claiming Biden is in cognitive decline is worth noting.
The truth is they're both in cognitive decline - and why wouldn't they be at their ages?
The fact that one of them is going to be US President for the next 4 years (unless they die or become incapacitated in office, which is fairly plausible either way) is making most people's head spin outside of the US, and maybe in the US too.

It's frustrating to a lot of people but the fact of the matter is that the majority of Americans seemingly have no problem whatsoever with having ancient people elected to positions of power. I wouldn't trust an 80 year old man to drive his own car; I don't want him driving the country.
