    The ABC is being slammed, yet again. This time for their most recent episode of Q&A, where sexologist Nikki Goldstein suggested socially inept people could benefit from sex bots. “I feel like there are people who really do struggle to have these intimate connections,” Goldstein said. “I’ve interviewed people before that go to brothels, and they feel that the only way they can have this girlfriend experience is to be paying for it. They don’t necessarily want to be there.” “Now when I think of sex robots and where we’re going with A.I. technology, I feel like that’s the perfect...

    Frankly, as soon as Google began engaging in censorship and manipulating search results, they should have been shut down. They received millions of taxpayer dollars illegally and unconstitutionally through a CIA-front group to get started. As such, they should be held to the same restraints that the federal government is concerning speech and while they are not those who may legislate, they should be those who are not allowed to censor. Recent court documents are now revealing just how Communistic Google actually is as they have now stated that free speech is “disastrous” for a society. In a statement filed...

    The communications giant rejected a political ad from Tennessee Republican senate candidate Marsha Blackburn because “it shows Democrats in a bad light.” The ad shows Democrat mobs engaged in several incidents of violence and threats of violence. Google did not dispute the truth of the content. Google CEO Pichai Sundararajan explained that “truth is not a defense against bad manners. Pointing out some else’s faults is not the way to start a beneficial dialog. The criticized party is not usually motivated by criticism to modify his behavior in the direction desired. Rather than allow Ms. Blackburn to waste her money...

    On Sunday, Marsha Blackburn, who is running for the Senate seat vacated by empty suit Bob Corker against Democrat former governor Phil Bredesen, held a rally with recently discovered conservative rock star Lindsey Graham. This was the day after the massacre of eleven worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue and Blackburn asked for a moment of silence. That isn’t what she got. Naturally, as Republicans have been pushing the “Democrats stand for mobs not jobs” theme (FACT CHECK: True since at least 1968), Blackburn cranked out ads showing the flower of the Democrat party in full bloom All was well until...

    President Trump visited Pittsburgh Tuesday to offer condolences following Saturday's massacre at a synagogue... If the polling data is any indicator and if one assumes its a bit biased towards the Democrats, the Republicans will certainly improve their majority in the US Senate in the mid-term elections with some losses in the House likely. Convicted Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger was found dead in a federal prison in West Virginia beaten "nearly beyond recognition"..... Word today that the United States is pressuring Saudi Arabia to agree to a cease fire in Yemen's civil war... The "Sunday Express" in the...

    Twenty year Freeper anniversary. I joined up during the corrupt Clinton years. It was also the time I stopped watching TV news because I was tired of being lied to , tired of the endless sucking up to RAT leaders , tired of Hollywood idiots pontificating as if their celebrity status made their worse than worthless opinions worth listening to, and , most of all , just plain tired of being tired. It was during this time I learned how to photo-shop with free software made for Linux: GIMP. It’s available for Windows as well but after years of...

    Has anyone purchased an "Education version" of Corel Draw Graphics Suite? (Not the "Home and Student" version, which is a separate product.) I'm trying to find out if activating and using it is as simple as having a valid .EDU email address, or if there are more steps involved. I looked in various FAQs on the Corel site, but I couldn't find this question explicitly answered. Kind of a longshot asking here, but I know FReepers are knowledgeable about a wide spectrum of things. Thanks.

    Another MAGA Conservative kicked off Twitter. I was on Twitter posting and retweeting today for the first time in many months as a result of the arrest of the Florida False Flag bomber. (Yeah, I'm calling it a False Flag operation because Sayoc sure isn't a good MAGA pro-Trump Republican is he?) Anyway, I did a bunch of tweeting and retweeting today (and did a pretty good job of flaming libs if I don't mind saying so) but was locked out due to "unusual activity" on my account. I then had to do the identify stoplights and cars test to...
  • Eyeing Foxconn, Manufacturing Gig Platform FactoryFix Expands in WI

    Foxconn’s planned $10 billion electronic display factory in southeastern Wisconsin could be a boon for local workers vying for the potential 13,000 jobs. The facility could also be a headache for other area manufacturers, possibly sparking a heated competition for engineers, electricians, machinists, and other skilled laborers. The talent war could also spell opportunity for organizations that help employers find and hire such professionals. Patrick O’Rahilly, founder and CEO of FactoryFix, believes his company could be well positioned to capitalize on the Foxconn effect, if and when it materializes. FactoryFix is a Chicago-based startup that has developed software to connect...

    There are plenty of cloud providers that are equipped to bid for the Pentagon’s contract This year, hackers seem to be having a field day accessing our personal data. Google exposed hundreds of thousands of users data on its Google+ social network. Facebook was attacked and hackers gained access to the personal data of some 30 million users. Yet, these strikes pale in comparison to what is perhaps the most serious concern: Chinese manufacturers has been installing micro spy chips inside servers. This recent discovery raises many red flags as to China’s ability to hack into our secret government computers...

    Blockchain has taken the corporate world by storm. The little known technology that powers Bitcoin has exploded into the global development space, and the market for blockchain jobs is tight. A recent report from jobs site Glassdoor revealed how quickly the need for blockchain professionals has grown.

In August of 2017 there were 446 open jobs that related to blockchain, and in the same month of this year, that number surged to 1,775. The rise in open positions has occurred...
  • Is "Statistics Shadowbanning" the Latest Big-Tech Salvo Against Conservatives?

    So that's Big Tech, advancing little minds and big lies--and inviting big destruction With perhaps the most significant midterm election in decades nigh, big tech’s censorship of conservatives has kicked into high gear. And while Facebook’s recent purge of right-leaning pages is obvious and has made news, perhaps just as destructive is the stealth censorship. A good example may be the report of WordPress’ “statistics shadowbanning” of Whatfinger News. Whatfinger is an increasingly popular news aggregator that is run by military veterans; it’s like a non-establishment version of Drudge, only more comprehensive, more conservative, and more interesting.
