    It sounds pretty black and white to me.
    As you pointed out, this is straightforward contract law. Did he buy a service? Yes. Did he sign a document agreeing to that service? Yes. Were there conditions he agreed to in order to use that completely arbitrary and voluntary service? Yes.

    Agreeing to venue ahead of time by accepting the terms of service/membership is a solid strategic move for the future defendant. In this case, you can bet your Trump University Law Degree that Google and Facebook's attorneys put in near bullet proof language to compel any and all disputes to be required to take place in California.

    Done and done.

    You could probably make some serious side cash cozying up to Trumpkins and betting against Trump with them on law suits. Probably wouldn't get paid, but who ever does when it comes to those dipshits.

    You don't get to be as SLAPP-happy as Trump without winning an awful lot of legal disputes. It's both weird and telling that his win rate plummeted upon becoming President.

    Normally, one would expect the opposite.

    That's right. A conspiracy of of leftist elites are tricking millions of Trumps votes into not getting the Covid-19 vaccine......by telling them to get the vaccine. That....is the level of delusion we are reaching huh? I mean, I think alot of us know we would reach this level eventually, but I thought it wouldn't be at least until the next election and the deaths really started affecting the Republicans in the races.

    I guess this guy is just laying the ground work earlier. The story has to make sense.
    "I can't get vaccinated because liberals would be smug about it" has to be the most ratbrained form of logic I've seen in quite a while, Christ and Allah.
    You're not "playing devil's advocate", you're making someone who is likely speaking from personal experience defend themselves against the shitty and oppressive opinion you're too embarrassed to admit you actually believe in. It's you. You're the devil.

    It's like literal toddlers. You tell them not to do something like put their hand on a hot stove, and the dumber ones won't listen and will want to try it themselves, maybe to "prove you wrong".

    It's kinda disturbing how similar the mentality of these folks is to literal toddlers, almost like they stopped cognitive developed at a very, very, very, very young age.

    How much do you want to bet they stopped developing at the point the lead poisoning/opiate addiction kicked in?

    Considering most of these clowns appear to be Boomers or early Gen X, there's probably a correlation.

    Most, not all. Hehe. Some are kids of those morons who never learned to think for themselves. They parrot the same BS and spend all their time watching Joe Rogan and Ben Shabibo.

    Nope. Mainly because the so-called "social justice movements" that Boomers have historically supported have always been fundamentally selfish in motivation.

    It is an actual generation of sociopaths: to them, America has always been an exploitable resource from which they can extract value rather than a society or community.

    Ugh my mother and aunt are like that.
    I swear the older they get the more like toddlers they become.
    My mother will even put her fingers in her ears now when she doesn't like what someone is saying.
    When she does that I always say, this is the face of republican politics!
    So really that doesn't surprise me.
    Fucking playground antics.

    I think Reagan had a lot to do with contributing to the "I got mine, jack" selfish mentality of a lot of boomers.

    Yeah, it’s like they saw Wall Street when they were kids and thought Gordon Gekko was a hero to be emulated.

    Milkshake brings the Proud Boys to the yard
    And they're like "He's going to court"
    Damn right, he's going to court.
    He could plead out...if they reduce the charge.

    Yes, Florida Man Daniel Scott, a literally branded member of the Proud Boys who goes by "Milkshake", probably because he's white and unhealthy, plead not guilty to ten charges, most of which involve the multiple cops he assaulted during the murderous insurrection. Prosecutors have said they're open to a plea deal, but the FBI seems to have evidence that he pulled one of the Capitol police into a thick crowd of rioters, so even if he does plead, he's going to jail.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Quick double-header to start the day.

    1) Trump went on an interview during which he said, yes this is uniquely Trumpian, that (a) he ignored everything Fauci said (leading to hundreds of thousands dead) and (b) he would not run in 2024 if his doctor told him. Contradictory to the core.

    I will point out, I had predicted earlier that Trump could choose not to run in 2020 once it was clear he would lose, by making up a health reason. Well, that didn't happen. But it looks like that excuse might play out in the 2024 runup. If Trump knows he can't win -- for example, Arizona -- the "healthiest man to ever run for office" and his 300 pounds of fatass bulk could still use that reason.

    2) The NYTimes reports that they had an informant in play during the murderous insurrection. Yep, they had a Proud Boys member. Apparently he's been testifying as to motive, and has been saying that the attack was not pre-planned...which, yeah, means it was inspired by Trump's speech. Actually, if I knew the entire thing was not pre-planned by any attendees, I would feel a little better about it. I might even stop calling it "murderous insurrection" and swap to "manslaughterous insurrection". Hey, it's still a serious fucking crime. For which there's an FBI informant. Good luck with those plea deals, Proud Boys. Y'all got narced.

    I would love to see the scenario where Trump backs out at the last minute leaving the republicans with no candidate for 2024 LOL

    Yeah, Trump being the nominee in 2024 then leaving would be a bigger problem than if Trump suddenly decided in 2020 he was feeling great but his family was worried. In 2020, Pence would have taken over. If in 2024, Trump has won the nomination and has called everyone else China-loving cuck RINO traitors then leaves, what's left of the Republican Party would just flat-out abandon Trump's VP (won't be Pence), the Party of Trump would collapse, and the Senate would go 65/35 blue.

    I like this quote:

    What if the next time around, the Democrats lose the presidency and start a riot? I guess you think that would be all right in light of what you did, right?
    That's a judge, sentencing a guilty-pleading manslaughterous insurrectionist.
