And people still don't think the Communists have taken over?

No. They have a good portion of state houses to go. And good luck with that out west. We tend to be more libertarian, and will buck. Bet on that.

I am. but I must note every state has it's liberal/leftist contingent, too. It's as if the borders were designed that way.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Sure. It's largely city folks. It is seldom you find a Conservative minded city of any size. That Babylon thing going on I think.

Meh.  We may have our differences at time, but I take @Weird Tolkienish Figure at his word about how he voted.  :cool:

Of course they are listening. The Alexa people said so.
Read an article once where the Alexa operators described some of the extreme stuff they hear.
Most of it was disgusting. Everything from weird sex, to bathroom noises, to child abuse.
The funniest Alexa story to me, was the commercial that would broadcast loudly, "Alexa! Order (product name) now!"
Obviously it was shut down very quickly. But it did work. Alexa ordered it.

Ask Alexa if she is spying on you.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Obviously Liberals are idiots and they seem to have no understanding of history at all.
The Left may think that this new "Stasi" will only go after Trump and his supporters.
They could not be more wrong. Once such an infrastructure is formed, every single citizen is a target.
The Stasi is not a directed operation. It is omnidirectional, targeting and surveilling everyone.
These fools have no clue what they are asking for.

And yes, the new American Left is the rise of the Fourth Reich in every conceivable way.
They think that the new Jews (Trump supporters) will be the only victims, just as the Germans did in the 30s.
However once this starts it is indiscriminate.
Any German citizen could be executed or sent to camps for any reason at all.
And showing how Liberal you are will not save you.

With totalitarian regimes, there is no safety. There is no 'Get out of jail free.' card in the deck.
Once you are targeted for any reason whatsoever, you will be declared guilty and you will be gone,
no matter who you are.

Yep. But those who think this is good to get at their 'enemies' anyone who doesn't agree gushingly with them), are blind to the monster they are creating, or think it will do their bidding. Trotsky, Beria, even Che found out.

@dfwgator

The saddest part of this is I strongly suspect the majority of Americans under 30 can read that and think it is a good idea,and would be honestly shocked it was Communist policy.

They SAY they only listen when the device hears the wake word. However, I've noticed, on numerous occasions, that ads I see on the web seem to be tailored to conversations I had in audio range of one of these devices. It's happened enough times, in situations where I hadn't searched online or taken other actions that might influence the ads, that I am very confident they are listening to mine ad words.

Well, that's kind of circular, ain't it? It has to be listening to hear the wake word, right?  :cool:

Well, what they are saying is that the device has the ability to detect the wake word locally, and only sends audio to their servers after it hears that.

It really is crap for the most part. The only exception is when they're remaking some older movie. You can also clearly see the influence of Chinese money if you look for it.
