    NBA SUSPENDS SEASON UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

    I'm down with the NBA starting on Christmas. Actually, I'd like for it to start a week (or two) earlier, to give the players a few games or so to get used to playing again and then have a full day of games from coast to coast from 12 pm Eastern (11 am Central) and ending at like 10 pm Pacific time. It would be a cornucopia of games, an NBA bazaar if you will. Don't have any college FB bowl games on Christmas so the NFL and college FB will be out of the way. Great way to kick off the NBA.

    What are you watching in place of sports?

    Yes, I am aware of the the Patriot Act. Here's what i am trying to make you aware of. There are numerous people including myself who feel that the Constitution was never written for people like my ancestors and we weren't included and there is ample evidence to support this. So some may say, we didn't have Constitutional Rights in the first place and that's why so many figures of authority (politicians, judges, law enforcement) have treated us a certain way over the years. They have justified it in their own heads so they treat us a certain way. So trying to tell a group of people who feel that way, that if they don't do such and such, they may lose something that they never felt that they had in the first place, probably ain't going to work. Do you understand? It's like going to some country and finding a group of people who are beaten and isolated from society and saying "hey guys if you don't take actions, A, B and C, you MAY be beaten and isolated from society" They will probably scratch their heads and say, "we're already being beaten and isolated from society". Laying out consequences of what may happen to people who are already living those consequences, probably isn't going to change their behavior or get them more interested in the topic that you are discussing. As far as the War on Drugs, i am very well aware of the W.o.D. and the impact on the Black community in the U.S. as this has been something I have been railing against and telling people about since I was a teenager in the 1990s. Let's just say I am very well versed on that subject and leave it at that. To me, it's just further evidence that the rights of certain people do not exist or at the very least, the government will find ways to subvert those rights. I don't disagree with what you are saying as far as rights can be taken away, what i am saying is, there are disaffected populations who feel their rights have already been taken away or those rights never existed in the first place because people of authority routinely violate those rights. It's hard to tell people who are already living the consequences that "hey, if this happens, this may be the consequences" They are living it already. As far as the surveillance and technology, private companies are already tracking and surveilling people. They have convinced us as consumers to buy products for convenience which are nothing more than bugs to listen in on us. We traded our privacy for convenience through technology a long time ago. I will say though, that they may try to do things to a larger population which would affect more people. With that beings aid, good conversation, but let's get back to bball or what people are watching, i'm not trying to get into socio-political conversations on this board (although i have but I prefer to keep it light)

    I was disappointed in the The Scheme. I thought it would have more meat but just remember, I was the first on the board to tell people about Tiger King!

    News from Tillery

    Can you change the title to "Tillery Rumor" or something. That's just him blowing hot gas. Even if there is an iota of truth, I don't trust ole Ron Ron anymore....his brain is warped.

    You don't get it. Private technology and big data companies are already doing that. Are you as paranoid and upset with private technology companies as you are with the government? I'm not apathetic. I'm realistic. All of this stuff that people are so afraid of the government doing is already being done by private technology companies and they are making money off of you, off of your location, off of your private data. I'm more upset with that than i am the government. And what makes you think they aren't giving that data to the government? THEY ARE. There is no privacy anymore. If you have SIri or Google Assistant or Google Home or Amazon Alexa, it's listening to everything you say and do. Everything that you do on your computer is tracked, everything with your smartphone is tracked. These web browsers (Google, Microsoft) share your data and search results with Facebook, Amazon, etc There is no privacy and these technology and big data companies know more about you than you know about yourself. As far as police go, lol. i'm a Black man in America. That's been happening to us.

    Meh, they're already tracking us and selling our info anyway. I saw someone complaining about the U.S. Census and how the gov't was trying to do such and such with our data and that person won't participate. My reply was Amazon, Facebook, Instagram, Google, YouTube, Apple, Microsoft, ect already have tons of your private data (including your location at all times as well as cc info) but you're worried about a few questions from the government? Be prepared to begin a crystal meth habit if you watch this. Your life will never be the same.

    This a function of more testing. Not trying to ignore the severity of it but I think Memphis like the rest of the U.S. has done more testing in the past few days than the previous weeks combined or something. Obviously people need to take precautions but I think the numbers we are seeing is because we are having more tests done and detecting it more.

    Hmm, i may have to check out Deadwood. I remember it but never watched it.

    You don't think they haven't already done this to some degree before this has even happened? I would assume they have. Not trying to go back and forth but I think some of our perceived freedoms or civil liberties are just that, perceived. Although I do think we have it way better than most other countries.
