Ya, pluto has a bunch of free crap live. All sorts of crap. Hope you like sean Connery as James Bond  ;) . "Tubi" is the biggest free on demand app(that has some live shows too). Between HD antenna, tubi, and pluto you have a LOT of "free" tv with isp.

I downloaded it (pluto) to my xboxone back in late December, and back then, there was a James Bond channel, but it had some of the Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan ones too, perhaps the two Timothy Dalton ones as well. But I got enough of James Bond movies watching the Encore and Movie Channel channels that play them all the time. And it looked like Pluto discontinued the James Bond channel on January 1st. I think they replaced it with some Cinemax channel that plays Cinemax shows like Californication, etc. I watched a couple eps of that, wasn't as god-awful as I thought it'd be, might actually have to download and watch the whole series at some point.


quoting from that story:
Twitter announced a new civic integrity policy this month that states that users may not use its service "for the purpose of manipulating or interfering in the elections or other civic processes."

I mean how can anyone look at this situation objectively and honestly and say that this isn't political bias? For 4 years, you had Group A all over twitter claiming that Russia aided Trump in stealing the 2016 election, and antifa ran absolutely fucking AMOK on there promoting their "let's break windows and burn shit" get-togethers, and that was all "hey, it's free speech",... but when similar shit is said by Group B once a Group A president wins the spot, suddenly it's "oh no, you can't say that, you're interfering with the election and spreading lies."

Doesn't matter what side you're on in the argument. The most important thing going on here is that someone is attempting to dictate WHAT YOU CAN SAY. I don't understand how people in Group A can shrug it off so casually that this is happening. If it can happen to Group B, what makes you think the govt and big corporations can't impose the same oppressive freedom-stiffling shit on Group A?

Because if you take that "rule" and apply it literally,... then pretty much ANYTHING that talks about politics could be considered to be an attempt to manipulate someones perceptions about "civic processes". And they're already sort of doing this by beginning to ban antifa accounts that have become critical of Biden since the election. And in my opinion, that's a recipe for more violence and destruction. These people have already proven that they're willing to come out in numbers and destroy shit and face off with the cops. You try to silence them and sweep them under the rug and they're gonna act out the best way they know how... because nobody can ignore a city block on fire.

All this shit began years and years ago when they changed campaign finance rules and allowed corporations to donate unlimited funds as if they were "individuals". It's the corporations feeding money to these politicians that are imposing these things, not the will of the people.

I dunno what the fuck happened to the Democratic party since Bush left office, but I used to think it was the Republicans who were gonna sell this country out to the corporate assholes.

Was flipping through shit on the PlutoTV app this morning, looking through "news" channels, came to BlazeTV and saw the Glenn Beck show on. I almost never watch him, but since I discovered this PlutoTV thing, I often flip through the decent selection of right-leaning news channels just to see what they're talking about. Usually its the same ole same ole boring shit. Today it was this:

So even with the massive upswing of border apprehensions in 2019, the final counts come still come down to 1,552,003 border apprehensions and 2,044,904 visa overstays.

Holy fucking sheep shit, are you THAT blind that you can't read your own statement right there?

The number you quote is "Border APPREHENSIONS" versus documented visa overstays. Have you accounted for SUCCESSFUL illegal border crossings? Google that shit. There is no "official" count, for obvious reasons. The ratio is over 10 to 1. In fact... well over. :shifteyes:

Around 900-something mexicans died crossing the border last year. That's about 3 every single day. They don't count towards "apprehensions" either. And probably 5% of them were packing product trying to swim across the river, or twisted/broke an ankle trying to walk, so they coyotes execute them and make their friends carry the dead persons load. Marijuana, they don't truck across the border as much anymore. Believe it or not, they've moved production HERE already. In the vast national forests on the west coast, the cartels have set up hundreds of small but condensed and hard to detect grow operations. They've made these same poor bastards crossing dozens of miles of craggy desert in the dark trek for MILES AND MILES through the woods with bundles of PVC pipe that they use to divert water from faraway streams to irrigate the plants. Being a game warden and forestry service worker is already kinda dangerous, and MUCH more dangerous in the wilderness of Northern Cali.

Why are there so many wildfires in California? Because the forestry service is HUGELY underfunded. Why are they chronically underfunded? Probably because Cartel fronts that wash their money and legitimize their presence here in the US are using their wealth to persuade things in that direction. Not that it needs much help. California has had serious budgeting problems for a long time now, and the morons balancing the checkbook don't prioritize dumb shit like a bunch o' fuckin' trees... or having enough water... not when they have bonuses to worry about accounting for.

1, I don't know where the hell you heard that the majority of illegal immigration comes from work visa overstays, but that is absolute bullshit. No. Not even close. Where do you live? They must not have much actual diversity where you are. In parts of Gainesville GA where I'm at, you'd think you were in fuckin' Tijuana. All the signs in Spanish for miles. I've worked right beside these people, been friends with them, and know their stories. So don't try to tell me these people are the minority. Hell no, they ain't.

2, Sinaloa often uses clandestine tunnels in bordertowns, but Sinaloa isn't the only group operting. They do indeed move considerable amounts backpacking it on folks crossing on foot at night. Some drown trying swim carrying all their shit PLUS what the cartel coyotes have loaded onto them. They find the bodies all the time.

Drug traffic is one problem among MANY. Healthcare, etc. Personally... They are PEOPLE, and they take up space. It takes 2x as long to get anywhere in Atlanta as it did 15 yrs ago. The population is out of fucking control. I'm sick of sitting in bumper to bumper backups even on WEEKENDS! It's not rush hour, WTF man!!!  It's BULLSHIT! Go the fuck home!

Allow me to highlight the most important part.

An approach that doesn't cripple our economy and actually targets the worst polluters/perpetrators of the world.

And like he said...

Anyone that doesn't view it like this is getting sucked into the fake news shit slinging show.

Nobody is denying the science that proves that CFC's kill the ozone that protects us. Saving the planet is great. But people gotta work and put food on the table. Kinda the same shit with covid. Yeah, it's bad, it's killing people. But bills don't stop coming just because people are getting sick. We gotta work to live.

Ok, but why is a wall the most-effective way to spend money on border security? What alternatives are there and are they more cost-effective?

Because... walls/fences are sometimes high and hard to climb over. That's why they put them around prisons. I can't believe someone has to explain the concept of WALLS to you.

Don't ask anyone else here what is the more cost effective method. What, am I supposed to formulate your fuckin' argument FOR YOU!?! You're the one obviously arguing against it. How about start with WHY you're against it, and go from there, cupcake.

As for why I think it's the most cost effective method... you put up a fence once, you pay for it once. Maybe every so often you have to maintain it or repair it. If you design it right, that cost can be minimal. The alternative would be to MASSIVELY patrol every mile of border with men. You have to pay the men a salary, you have to pay for their insurance, you have to pay for the gas they burn in their vehicles while patrolling the area, and that's an ongoing never-ending expense. You don't pay a wall a salary. Cost effective.

Retire the tunnels, Sinaloa. Cocaine caravans, come on through!

If they were actually progressive they'd begin with taxing miles flown on private jets. But by all means, screw the middle class. Anything to stifle freedom. "Oh you bought a 4 cylinder? That's cheating!!"

My folks grew up in the suburbs on the northeast side of Atlanta. When they got married, they moved a ways out from the Atlanta suburbs to raise a family in a better neighborhood. In the mid-2000's, they moved AGAIN, even farther away from Atlanta to escape the crime and bullshit that keeps on spreading outwards. And I ain't all that keen on living as far out of Atlanta as I do. By now I've gotten used to all the long trips, ...but since moving up here, going ANYWHERE is a fucking pain in the ass half-the-day affair. The nearest walmart is about 40-45 minutes away. 45 mins there, 45-60 minutes shopping, 45 mins back, that's almost 2 and a half hours out of my day. So believe me when I say this... I don't live here because it's fucking convenient. I live here because I don't want some shithead robbing me and my old lady at gunpoint like they did to my bro and his old lady in our old neighborhood before he moved in with me years ago. And they wanna tax me for it? Fuck you, tax the assholes in the city that were stealing all my shit before I moved away.

Yeah, and pretty sure blacks are effected by diabetes at a higher rate than whites. You BLM race-baited no-life activist twerps voted for him. Enjoy the indigestion from all the bullshit you've been fed.

Hell, let's keep voting for Democrats for the next 30 years straight. Maybe we can bring back slavery. :oops:

No, we'd rather see more of your great Biden memes, corky.

Cuz you're sure as hell not gonna talk about how great his policies are... Because they aren't... Not that that kinda shit interests you anyway.

Trump was a disaster for Covid. Biden, and any Democrat, frankly, will correct that. Fauci himself said he feels liberated now that he can actually let the science speak instead of worrying about ruffling Trump's feathers by contradicting him.

He left riot curtailing to the states. They hated him so much that they felt it preferable to watch the wackos burn it all to ground than to ask Orange Man for federal assistance. They put personal and partisan prejudice over the welfare of their contituents. Covid vaccine rollout. Again, not the federal govts role to FORCE states to figure out a logistics and distribution plan. States failed. Put the blame where it is due. Trump talked it up all summer how the military was going to be utilized to rapidly distribute the vaccine. No one else did their part to cooperate and assure that would happen. Instead, they deploy the National Guard to DC to protect the Inauguration from an imaginary "insurrection". They could mobilize the military for one and not the other. Ask yourself why.
