  • Slap lawsuits are just so the rich can suppress free speech of the rest of the people. How the president of the US can openly brag about allowing more of them while being applauded by the same people who worship the first amendment is a perfect summary of American politics.

  • Well, my life was cut to pieces (literally) by Right wing Trump mostly Evangelical weird people in the past 4 years and totally ruined me - literally. So if the right wing opened up the libel laws - I have not yet been able to sue their butts, and I have some PRETTY STRONG CASES like getting my Teaching job cut for religious reasons (stated to me), in a public school system (which devastated my life). Yep - they can sue - I'm being discriminated on the job right now due Disability discrimination - I'm going to have my job cut and won't be able to afford my rent - but do you think I can sue them? Of course not.

  • Perhaps the worst scam in US history is neoliberals’ Russia-gate. They lost to a TV host. Instead of reflection, they latched onto a moronic conspiracy theory for now five years. The Russia-gate hoax and Ukraine-impeachment “entertainment” was concocted by Obama/Hillary/Biden/Pelosi, Schumer, etc. and their intelligence and DNC executives on behalf of their Wall Street and military industry donors FREE Assange - our “freedom-loving” media is totally silent - ask yourself WHY !!

Naturally, they tried to sue me. These days, my state has an anti-SLAPP law that makes it extremely profitable to DEFEND a SLAPP suit, so I say, just try it again, ladies. Just try it.

Therefore I propose that we organize a boycott movement and refuse to buy any products which are advertised this way. Ultimately Google should be forced to sell ISworlds. But until they do, a boycott of advertiser's products is the only way to force them to stop doing this kind of robbery.
