I think the whole Brandon thing is funny, especially how the NASCAR announcer had no clue. Lets not let politics ruin a sense of humor and irony.

"NEW YORK - The phrase 'Lets go, Brandon' can be traced back to an Oct. 2 NASCAR race at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama.

Driver Brandon Brown had won his first Xfinity Series and was being interviewed by an NBC Sports reporter.

The crowd behind him was chanting something. The reporter suggested they were chanting "Lets go, Brandon" for the driver."

I'm going to ignore the rest. Now NASCAR has dealt with the problem, by adjusting the mics that are used, and ambient background audio. Last race I listened to, it seemed they had a bit of stock crowd noise, playing behind the interview. A repeating soft cheer, like you would hear when someone is introduced. Once again, technology adjusts for the times and specific situations.  :)

Yep, even Biden is cracking jokes about it, as we can see in that clip.
Self-deprecating humor is reserved for intelligent people.
Great to see this type of humor again, after a gap of 4 years filled with childish name-callings!

I'm not American, so I consider myself objective - though you can never be really objective.
I'd recommend to burry all your hate and viewing as many trustful sources around the world as you can. If you do that objectively, that might dramatically change your mind and improve your mood. Hate is driving this world deeper and deeper into a crisis and unless we start understanding that we are in all this together, that won't change.

Thank you for a positive observation.

I'll add that the President has become more of a figurehead type leader than the one who makes the decisions that run the country. Sure a very important person for timely issues, but blaming whoever it is for the economy, a war, some new law, or other matters that The President doesn't control, is just divisive politics. What I mean is, the President is influential but the House  and Senate control much more, and the Supreme Court monitors what the other three try to do.

January 6 Senate Committee Hearings.

Not sure where to put this, but seeing this was a former political thread, I am most interested in knowing others opinions. In particular, if you are a moderate, independent, or previous trump voter - have these televised committee hearings changed your opinion of trump, and/or how you will vote later this year?

Also, other recent events, such as the overturning of Roe v Wade, and the recent Republicans drive to tilt courts against climate action.

ETA. Or will it be down to the economy?  (bringing it back to the original thread theme)

Video not available in Australia. But I agree with you that it most likely won't have an effect on right wing extremists or those who only watch Fox News.

Maybe this one: https://youtu.be/sjoI85MoXjM (or you could try to circumvent country restrictions with a VPN).

Spoiler alert, some of these cult followers suspect that even Fox News is part of some anti-Trump conspiracy! Imagine that!  ;D)

So much anger down there (watching from Canada here). What frightens me is what happens there often gets reflected up here at some point in some way. Just so much anger and nothing about compromise, bridge building, or anything from anyone (it seems from the outside looking in). I was reading that 1 in 3 Americans see violence as a perfectly acceptable option for change of government. (WaPo Jan 1, 2022)

As for the economy, if Trump (or a Trump-lite alternative) wins, it'll be bad news for Canada for a while. He uses tariffs instead of words. The only saving grace I see from the far right is they are prone to cannibalism. Remember Mitt Romney used to be "far right" but is now considered moderate even though his views haven't changed at all.

$9 to $4,000 a ticket !!!  Ivanka clone, Nancy Pelosi was responsible for the insurrection, Obama is still in the basement. A juicy conspiracy theory is far more believable than the truth!

Thanks to the incompetent idiots in charge, we're on our way to a recession.

I anticipate that many companies with either start downgrading or cancelling their microstock accounts from sites like SS and AS.

My SS sales has dipped in the last few weeks. Less big sales and less daily downloads.

Just brace yourselves for what's to come and stop supporting people who are economically illiterate.

I wonder, have you been watching the actual Trump conspiracy which culminated in Jan 6? Maybe stop watching Fox ("News" LOL) and get some actual information about what's going on in the real world.

I really don't know Annie.
I was the one who start the topic "off-topic" and my guess is that probably was removed by some moderator.
Maybe some people did not like and report it.

I care about people and my concern was genuine about what was happening in the news. And I know this is a forum about microstock but despite being an off-topic subject like this one, it didn't seem very democratic to end it.

Yes, Evaristo, I remember you were the one who started it, and that it was in the off-topic section. Personally, I think every major news topic is a subject for microstock, and not so off-topic. Smart people would be out there already shooting the protests, signage of family planning clinics, even things like pregnancy test kits, etc. These type of threads can give people good ideas for what to shoot that's in current demand. And as for the arguing that comes up in these threads, then the moderators can always delete just the offending posts, as had been done recently in another thread. I'm with you. 

Infographs about how the USA judiciary system works, abortion rights word clouds, signage and head office buildings of all the companies who have offered their help to women, state and supreme court houses, are just some of the things that come to mind. In other words, all of the things that came up in that thread can make good stock. Illustrators could have a field day.

(I have a feeling that it wasn't Leaf, the main moderator, who is usually very tolerant. I was wondering whether someone put it in the 'garbage'?)

Political debates are often censored or taken down here after a while. I can understand why leaf deletes the threads when they get too off the rails and personally I am not complaining. He didnt create this forum to have to moderate political debates and its his his house, but I sometimes wish they were still about.

If some of the old ones were up people could see some of the lunacy that has gone before and maybe not bother engaging with extremists or even exterminationists.

I mean there were people on political threads literally lamenting that NATO prevented their country from the genocide of Muslims because now there are mosques everywhere or spouting the most insane Q anon conspiracy theories you can imagine (great replacement theory, great reset etc).

There is only one moderator who can do that, the site owner. From the past, there are no other moderators. It's his site, he has that right.

When the discussion stops being point and counter-point and becomes personal attacks or lopsided, biased insulting attacks, (from opposing sides of the opinions) there's a high probability that it will disappear.  8)

A juicy conspiracy theory is far more believable than the truth!

Yeah and I can never understand why? Seemingly intelligent people, will get fooled and spread the disinformation, as if it's factual?

It strikes me odd that people blame politicians for whatever goes on in the FREE MARKET economy.
Yeah, people are mad because of the very high inflation and yes the fed tries to tamper that
down with higher interest rates.
Republicans of course blame the Democrats for the only reason that Democrats are in power.
Now in November it really bothers me that Republicans will take over the Congress and exercise
power. Biden is not a particularly strong President, he has to be pushed into doing things, so Republicans
will run all over him. Trouble for the Republicans, who have never cured anything, they will find themselves
dealing with high inflation, the Ukraine war and a shrinking economy and with attacking human rights and liberty.
Two years later Americans will be seriously mad at the Republicans and vote in Democrats.
So it goes it's an endless and silly blame game.
Neither party has much control over anything, so they blame the party in charge.
Me? Because of the 6 January insurrection, I consider Republicans to be traitors. Any American that supports a guy
that attacks and denigrates American veterans, our fallen soldiers and disabled warriors, along with the handicapped
is not an American at all and is actually a piece of rotten rat feces.
But that's just me.

My best thanks Uncle Pete for sharing this info. It wasn't exactly my idea when I made this topic. But I agree that there were times when I also felt that things could get a little more tense.

Either way, I do respect choices of moderator.

Sure as the Sun will rise and set again tomorrow.  :)

(although it's really not, it's the horizon moving because the Earth spins, but one thing that makes them the same is politics is nothing but viewpoints and spins)
