Canadians Hit With Huge Tax Hike, As Trudeau Breaks Another Campaign Vow Reader 01/13/2018 (Sat) 01:33:16 Id: 2a95f4 [Preview] No. 5439 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Canadian PM Justin Trudeau performed the oldest magic trick in the book – pay attention to this hand while I do something else with the other – when he quietly increased the amount of tax Canadians will pay by an average of $2,200 per year, while publicly claiming to be working to reduce taxes.

Unsurprisingly, naive liberals have fallen for the oldest trick in the liberal playbook all over again. When will they learn?

A new Fraser Institute report says more than 90% of Canadian families will be burdened with significantly higher taxes once the Canada Pension Plan tax increases are fully implemented by 2025. The first of seven increases to CPP tax — which all workers much pay — begins January 2019.

The study’s co-author, Charles Lammam, talks about the impact on middle-class families: https://archive.fo/96pP2

What was the most surprising in the report?

“Canadian families will endure a significant tax increase and that tax bill will increase over time. The Trudeau government has talked a lot about cutting taxes for families. Based on the personal income tax changes they’ve already put in the case, we’ve found that’s not true for the vast majority of middle class families. But then there are major tax changes set to come into effect, starting next year, particularly the payroll tax hike to fund the Canada Pension Plan expansion. We found that plus what has already been implemented will result in over 92% of all families with children in Canada paying higher taxes and they’ll be paying on average $2,200 more per year.”

Why is this significant?

“The Trudeau government has repeatedly claimed to cut taxes on the vast majority of families and our findings show that’s not the case…The reason why the Trudeau government is claiming they cut taxes because they’re focusing on just one of the many changes that they’ve either enacted themselves or spearheaded as a government. The focus has been on the federal rate cut from 22% to 20.5% — however, the reality is they’ve introduced several other tax changes both to the personal income tax system and they’ve spearheaded with the provinces, CPP, which will result in higher payroll taxes.”

What does a $2,200 tax hike mean in context for 92% of families in Canada?

What happens to the remaining 8% of families?

“Either their tax bill stays the same or slightly decrease. We don’t do the analysis – who the incomes are of the 8%. It’s not something our analysis includes. What I can say is when you look at that middle group of families – these are families with income of $78,000 and $110,000. About 99% in this income range will be paying higher taxes.”

Your report explains that Canadian families could be paying even more. Can you explain?

“In our report, we’ve only calculated two of the major tax changes that have been announced so far. But then there’s others that we do not account for in these numbers. So, for example, you raise the carbon tax. This is a federally mandated tax that will be increasing over the course of the coming years. The potential for an even higher tax bill for families is greater than what we’ve outlined here. There’s also the scaling back of the contribution room of the Tax Free Savings Account, there are also new taxes they’re implementing on small businesses.”

How can Canadian families prepare for this up-shift in taxes beginning Jan. 2019?

“I don’t know if they can. A tax is a forced contribution to the government. I think the takeaway is we have a government that is repeating a claim to Canadians and I think it’s important for Canadians to be aware of what the claim is. And the reality is contrary to what the government is saying.”

I wonder if they kept the corporate tax the same or lowered it?

If they raised it, that would be suicide for their industry because some would come right over to the US where we lowered our corporate taxes. But I doubt Canada is that stupid.

I bet they increased taxes on citizens and covertly lowered corporate taxes in order to compete with US corporate tax cuts. After all, China got so freaked they reduced their corporate tax rate to 0% as long as companies remain over there.

Commies BTFO! White Births A US Majority Again Reader 01/06/2018 (Sat) 19:06:30 Id: fa1d6f [Preview] No. 5208 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The white birth rate in America has staged a near miraculous comeback and was a majority of live births in 2016—reversing a decade long decline—if the figures in the latest National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) report is accurate.

This new report, titled “Births: Provisional Data for 2016,” dated June 2017, although it was only released last week.

According to the report, the provisional number of births for the United States in 2016 was 3,941,109, down 1 percent from 2015.

The general fertility rate was 62.0 births per 1,000 women aged 15–44, down 1 percent from 2015 to a record low for the United States.

Among the race and Hispanic origin groups, the number of births ranged from 9,342 births for non-Hispanic Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander (NHOPI) women to 2.054 million births for nonHispanic white women.

The report’s “Table 2: Births, by race and Hispanic origin of mother” claims that of the 3,941,109 births in 2016, some 2,054,564 were “white” nonHispanic.

This amounts to 52 percent of the total.

…The Hispanic birth rate—one of the biggest drivers of the nonwhite population explosion of recent years—has, according to these figures, fallen substantially.

In 2016, it was reported that the Hispanic birth rate had slowed, and the latest figures may be confirmation of this fact.

More Subsidized Failure: SpaceX Customer Says Company's Latest Launch Failure "Isn't Elon Musk's Fault" Reader 01/12/2018 (Fri) 15:01:06 Id: 7b5f80 [Preview] No. 5407 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Of course it wasn’t Elon’s fault - nothing ever is.

Less than a week after SpaceX’s failure to launch the mysterious Zuma satellite into orbit - the payload, which presumably cost hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars to develop, failed to separate properly from the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that was carrying it - a major customer of SpaceX, Musk’s space-oriented venture that has essentially become a successor to NASA, defended the company, speculated that the blame for the failure lay not with Musk, but with the hacks over at longtime defense contractor Northrop Grumman.

Here’s Bloomberg:

A major SpaceX customer spoke up for Elon Musk’s rocket company, pinning the blame for a secret military satellite’s disappearance on defense company Northrop Grumman Corp.

Matt Desch, chief executive officer of satellite operator Iridium Communications Inc., said that as the launch contractor, Northrop Grumman deserves the blame for the loss last weekend of the satellite, which is presumed to have crashed into the ocean in the secretive mission code-named Zuma.

“This is a typical industry smear job on the ‘upstart’ trying to disrupt the launch industry,” Desch said on Twitter Thursday in response to a news article. "SpaceX didn’t have a failure, Northrop Grumman did. Notice that no one in the media is interested in that story. SpaceX will pay the price as the one some will try to bring low."

As we reported ahead of the launch, which was repeatedly delayed with only a vague explanation, many of the details about Zuma’s provenance and purpose remain a mystery. The job the satellite was intended to perform and even the identity of the US agency that contracted the satellite aren’t known.

Northrop Grumman’s comms department didn’t respond to Bloomberg’s request for comment, and the company has yet to respond to the allegations. Iridium executive Desch later told Bloomberg in a message that he didn’t know for sure what led to the disappearance but was speculating that a dispenser failed to release the satellite, which he said would have been Northrop Grumman’s responsibility.

In summary, Desch’s tacitly admits that his conclusion is based, at least in part, on speculation. Given the federal government’s silence thus far, it’s likely an official explanation for the failure will never be released, despite the incredible waste of taxpayer money that this failure represents.

I prefer to see the US grow some balls, take back positions of power (we can do that legally and civilly) and start changing these fucked up policies.

Why haven't we forced our politicians to stop subsidizing corrupt companies at our expense? After all, that is not capitalism and they know it!

Why haven't we put anti-trust lawsuits to use since (how many years has it been?) Why are we allowing tech companies to become de-facto monopolies when they CAN be broken up through the court system?

As far as content providers, we need to ditch this bullshit! Instead of using Twitter, use Gab. Instead of using Google, use StartPage (or something else). Instead of purchasing on Amazon, purchase products elsewhere. Use a private VPN service, they deserve the money for helping protect our privacy! Go to a local grocery store or farmers market, don't support fast food chains.

Why are we not boycotting these corrupt companies en mass? Why even buy their shitty products or services if they don't cater to our interests? Hit them where it hurts, their bank accounts!

It's like this: we need to get back to self-sufficiency and self-reliance as much as possible even though we still live in a materialized world. And if we do purchase something it should be from someone who doesn't fuck people over. Something of good quality, Made In USA brands. Local ma & pa businesses. Purchase an old car from a neighbor instead of taking out a huge loan for some new digitized piece of shit. Don't rely on others or ask others if you can or can't do something, just do it.

We need to take back our lives, we are AmeriCANS ... not AmeriCANTS.

Evil Twitter Bitterly Responds to Deliberate Censorship By Attacking The Messenger, As More Leaks Develop... Reader 01/12/2018 (Fri) 15:46:02 Id: b2d3a7 [Preview] No. 5412 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Twitter has responded to Project Veritas’ undercover investigation, which revealed employees at the company boasting about censoring conservatives, by attacking the messenger.

“The individuals depicted in this video were speaking in a personal capacity and do not represent or speak for Twitter,” claimed a Twitter spokesman in an email to Breitbart Tech. “We deplore the deceptive and underhanded tactics by which this footage was obtained and selectively edited to fit a pre-determined narrative. Twitter is committed to enforcing our rules without bias and empowering every voice on our platform, in accordance with the Twitter Rules.”

“Twitter does not shadowban accounts,” they continued, despite the fact that numerous Twitter employees disputed this. “We do take actions to downrank accounts that are abusive, and mark them accordingly so people can still to click through and see this information if they so choose… This makes content less visible on Twitter, in search results, replies, and on timelines. Limiting tweet visibility depends on a number of signals about the nature of the interaction and the quality of the content.”

The Project Veritas investigation, which mainstream tech news outlets have ignored, confirmed years of Breitbart Tech reporting on Twitter, which has frequently been accused of censoring conservatives, libertarians, and classical liberals.

In one secretly recorded video, Twitter engineer Pranay Singh admitted to mass-banning accounts that express interest in God, guns, and America, while others explained Twitter’s shadow banning system, which they claimed was frequently utilized against conservatives and Trump supporters.

As explained by Breitbart Tech reporter Lucas Nolan, “Twitter and other platforms such have Reddit have twisted shadow banning from a tool to fight spammers into a tool to prevent tweets and content from spreading naturally.”

“Followers do not see tweets from the shadow banned individual in their timeline, and therefore do not engage with the tweets by responding, liking, or retweeting them,” he explained. “The shadow banned user is essentially tweeting to themselves, unless a follower directly visits their account.”

MOAR LEAKS! Reader 01/12/2018 (Fri) 15:47:06 Id: b2d3a7 [Preview] No.5413 del
In several exclusive interviews with Breitbart, former employees of the company reveal a company dependent on celebrities, hostile to free speech, and silently fuming at President Trump’s continued dominance on the platform. It corroborates the recent Project Veritas exposé of a platform that is hopelessly biased and committed to censoring non-progressive voices.

Our first source, who, like the others, wishes to remain anonymous, described how the company rapidly abandoned its commitment to free speech after former CEO Dick Costolo was replaced by Jack Dorsey, who the source described as “the definition of a social justice warrior.”

The majority of Twitter’s management, says the source, believes the leftist idea that “hate speech is violence.” They “absolutely” believe in the idea that “abuse scares people off the platform,” and that certain types of speech “silence” other speech.

According to the source, Twitter’s Trust & Safety and Legal departments (distinct from the Trust & Safety Council, which is made up of left-wing advocacy organizations), are “more tolerant of free speech than you might think,” but later adds that social justice warriors like Anita Sarkeesian still probably have direct access to Twitter’s upper management.

Twitter employees are divided into three distinct groups, says the source. Hardline leftists like Dorsey and others, and “ACLU-type” liberals who “still believe in free speech.” Lastly, there are workers who join the company on H1B visas, who the source says are “apolitical.”

The switch from Costolo to Dorsey was highly significant, says the source. Costolo focused on user growth, without taking a position on what non-illegal content was disallowed on the platform, whereas Dorsey has placed a higher emphasis on branded content, like a media company, where the style and tone of content should match the image the company wants to project, which the source describes as “welcoming, fun, and safe.”

In other words, Dorsey wants Twitter to be a feel-good safe space, and not the site of political acrimony and put-downs that it is currently known for.

According to a second source, the company openly celebrates when right-wing figures are banned from the platform.

According to the source, Twitter is almost entirely dependent on the goodwill of celebrities and public figures, who are seen as the number-one factor drawing users onto their platform. Getting re-tweeted by a celebrity is seen by Twitter as “the modern autograph.” Thus, confirms the source, the real reason for the suspension of figures like Milo, Roger Stone, and the satirist Godfrey Elfwick is because they offended a celebrity or high-profile mainstream figure.

From a business standpoint, celebrities drive sign-ups, and the site therefore “bends over backwards to please them.”

“Of course there are double standards,” says the source, who agrees that in fights between two public figures, “Twitter will pick the bigger, more powerful celebrity.”

According to the source, a surefire path to a Twitter permaban is for a user to get on the wrong side of a celebrity who has more power to damage the company than they do, and who has the support of “Social Justice Warrior brigades” both inside and outside the company. In other words, left-wing celebrities.

Twitter’s dependence on celebrities has been thrown into stark focus in recent days, as Hollywood tears itself apart over the Weinstein sex scandal. After Rose McGowan, one of Weinstein’s most vocal accusers, had her Twitter account briefly suspended last year, she and several other celebrities promised to boycott the platform.

A third source has also come forward to shed light on Twitter’s culture of snowflake identity politics, which bears a strong resemblance to the culture of other big tech companies.

In August, we reported that Google keeps tampons in their men’s restrooms as a matter of policy, because “some men menstruate.” More recently, James Damore’s lawsuit against Google revealed that the company allowed someone who “identifies” as a “yellow-scaled wingless dragonkin” give a presentation on “living as a plural being.”

Once confined to the crazyhouses of Tumblr and college campuses, the bizarre culture of left-wing millennial identity politics can now be found at the most powerful tech companies in the world.

Julian Assange has been granted an Ecuadorian passport, just one day after threatening to evict him from their London Embassy, according to a report in Ecuador's largest newspaper and confirmed by ZeroHedge.

Earlier today the WikiLeaks founder tweeted a picture of himself wearing an Ecuador football shirt, fueling speculation over his possible citizenship.


— Julian Assange ⌛ (@JulianAssange) January 10, 2018

Ecuador's largest newspaper, El Universo originally reported the news, citing "reliable sources" (translated):

Five and a half years after Rafael Correa and his then Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño gave him asylum in the Embassy of Ecuador in London, where he continues, the director of Wikileaks Julian Assange now has a certificate of Ecuadorian citizenship, with a code corresponding to the province of Pichincha

Reliable sources confirmed that the document number granted by the Ecuadorian civil registry to Assange is 1729926483 and that a passport had already been issued to him . It appears with the condition of "Inscrip.As400", term with which late inscriptions are identified, for which an old database was used.

ZeroHedge verified the registration on the Ecuadorian Internal Revenue Service website, noting "The taxpayer is not registered in the SRI database."

Can you post any proof of that? No? Then why should I believe you either. This is what has been reported, not by the mainstream press, but by independent media platforms.

I have no clue if this is accurate, I however do know that Assange tweeted a new pic of himself wearing an Ecuador football shirt. I do know that Trump was considering having him pardoned. I do know that the US Navy (for some strange unexpected reason) tweeted out "Julian Assange" on their official Twitter account. That I do know.

Calling people names for reporting something is not only childish, its completely counterproductive. Stop trying to be a bad-ass know-it-all and provide some other evidence if you don't believe this report.

There has been speculation that Assange was killed a couple years ago after wikileaks tweeted a 'dead man' hash during an attempted raid against the Embassy (this was in 2016 during the US presidential election campaigns).

I have no idea if Assange was actually killed though because no solid evidence came out after that incident. Still, it looks like Assange has been active, but who knows if thats really him? The whole thing is up-in-the-air speculation.

Many seem to be convinced after the recent tweet of him in the Ecuadorian shirt and the issued passport that was revealed he has fled.


Again, this is what is being reported all over the place, yet we don't know for sure what is true (at least yet). Regardless of Assange working for the DoD in the early 90s, I think he had good intentions when he started wikileaks, he desired to expose what was really going on behind the scenes. I just hope, in this case, he's alright and remains safe if it happens to be true.

Socialist Venezuelan Congress Bans Maduro’s Petro-backed Cryptocurrency Attempt, Prefer Economic Collapse! Reader 01/12/2018 (Fri) 13:34:23 Id: 5c7e93 [Preview] No. 5401 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Venezuela’s democratically elected National Assembly has outlawed the use of a national cryptocurrency known as the “petro” on Tuesday, describing it as an illegal attempt to mortgage the country’s oil reserves.

The country’s socialist president Nicolás Maduro announced the introduction of a national cryptocurrency last month as a solution to the government’s enormous debt burden, declaring that the “21st century has arrived” in Venezuela.

Maduro argued that the move would help Venezuela “advance in issues of monetary sovereignty,” principally through the bypassing of sanctions imposed by the United States.

On Friday, the government revealed that it would release 100 million “petros” in the coming weeks in an effort to raise hard currency, although opposition lawmakers are warning investors that the currency could be rendered worthless if Maduro was ousted from power.

[If ever successful] the currency would be backed by the country’s oil reserves, which represent around 95 percent of its total exports, as well as other resources such as gas, gold, and diamonds.

[Note: This would have provided much aid to recover the collapsed socialist economy of Venezuela! But we all know socialists don't like prosperity or industry.]

The regime hopes the plan will enable it to get hold of hard currency to deal with the country’s worsening economic and humanitarian crisis, that has left the government almost facing a debt burden of around $200 billion while millions of Venezuelans are starving or suffering from serious unattended health problems.

It is also designed hopes to bypass sanctions imposed by the Trump administration that prohibit Americans from dealing in Venezuelan debt, making the government’s access to hard currency even more difficult. It could also help ease the pressure of hyperinflation, which has rendered the country’s bolivar currency practically worthless and forced the government to continuously release higher denomination banknotes in order to keep up with price rises.

Excitement around cryptocurrencies has soared in recent months with the stratospheric rise of the Bitcoin currency, which recently surpassed a value of over $20,000 before dropping back.

Looks to me like Nicolás Maduro now realizes socialism does not work and wants to have an alternative currency that is backed by something of true value. Which is a startling change from former policy. However the Venezuelan Congress prefer to keep the status-quo... the same policies that have created misery and hell for millions of citizens.

I predict the same will happen 20 years down the road, in America as well. Be prepared and remain armed.

It makes sense to prohibit American banks from dealing with Venezuelan debt, its damn risky for our end.

HOWEVER... if Venezuela adopted a new economic policy, created a new currency and backed it by legit value - their own rich reserves - I could see us establishing a trade deal. In fact I personally would LOVE to see that happen, it would be great for both our countries!

Maduro is trying to head in the right direction, but his fucking corrupt-ass socialist govt is prohibiting fiscal responsibility and reform! Until then; until they can fix their insolvency; fuck em!

Facebook Announces They Will Remove News Media Governments Don't Want You To See Reader 01/12/2018 (Fri) 12:34:04 Id: 79e9be [Preview] No. 5395 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In a move that is set to infuriate news organizations that are not deemed "trustworthy", Facebook is set to introduce "sweeping changes" to its newsfeed as early as next week, prioritizing trustworthy sites and removing "clickbait" and unwanted news publishers, while promoting posts from friends and family, the WSJ reports.

Under its new approach, Facebook would evaluate parameters such as public polling about news outlets, and whether readers are willing to pay for news from particular publishers. Such variables would inform its algorithm that determines which publishers’ posts are pushed higher in the feed, one of the people said.

"It is not known how Facebook will decide which publications are deemed trustworthy." (Expect total censorship)

The move would thrust Facebook into an even more active role in deciding what content is acceptable on its site, in other words censoring content it deems inappropriate while promoting news outlets that are ideologically aligned with the organization.

This will only succeed in further alienating an already deeply polarized American population.

Here's what I predict happening: liberals will continue to stick around Facebook, Twitter, Google etc and conservatives are going to start fleeing to other places like Patreon, Unseen and Gab (or just shift over to using image boards like I have).

All this political censorship is only isolating more and more groups of people away from one another. P2P and BT clients will be among two of the only platforms where all users can participate without discrimination. Other than that, the internet will become extremely divided.

Leaked documents posted to 4chan detail an Obama administration plot to incite riots in Baltimore in order to justify martial law in America.

Internal documents belonging to George Soros’ son’s activist group – Friends of Democracy – describe an orchestrated plan between law enforcement and the White House to provoke riots to justify the rollout of nationwide martial law.

Infowars.com reports: According to the docs, the group sought to use the protests over the death of Freddie Gray as a detonator for larger violent demonstrations in the Baltimore area.

“Do not worry about violent action, we have secured limited protections from friendly BWI officials and LE to permit some aggressive activity,” the memo states.

Dates mentioned in the documents, Saturday April 18, 2015 and April 25, coincide with Baltimore riot dates.

The organization also points out an “ideal post-action objective” would be “civil unrest that leads to deployment of martial law-like policies for BWI, creating a feedback loop.” In other words, a domino effect that would spread nationwide.

Events described in the documents have actually been observed nationwide by Antifa and from other Soros-funded orgs.

For example, in 2013 Judicial Watch revealed the Obama Justice Department was caught staging protests in Florida following the death of Trayvon Martin.

A full-page ad in the New York Times last November, secured by the George Soros-backed Refuse Fascism, similarly called for a “revolution” to upend the Trump/Pence regime.

The leaked documents are what is important. They've been reviewed and were reported on already.

Mainstream Media Blackout! Twitter Engineer: If You Like Guns, God and America, You Must Be A 'Russian Bot' So We'll Ban You! Reader 01/12/2018 (Fri) 02:00:27 Id: 86a345 [Preview] No. 5380 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Left-wing and mainstream technology news outlets ignored Project Veritas’ Twitter censorship exposé, which revealed Twitter employees admitting to censorship against conservatives this week.

TechCrunch, the Verge, Mashable, TechRadar, CNET, and Ars Technica all ignored the news, which was only picked up by conservative outlets.

The Project Veritas investigation, which secretly recorded several former and current Twitter employees, including Twitter Trust and Safety Policy Manager Olinda Hassan, revealed the employees discussing and boasting about the ways they censor conservatives, pro-Trump accounts, “shitty people,” and users who express interest in God, guns, and America.

As reported by Breitbart News’ Allum Bokhari on Thursday, “The latest video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas shows Twitter employees appearing to admit that the platform has ‘shadow banned’ users in the past, and applies its rules and censorship algorithms unevenly in an effort to rid the platform of Trump supporters and conservatives.”

Shadow banning is the act of banning a user from a platform without them realizing. Shadow banned users will typically be removed from the public eye, so other users cannot see or interact with them, however since the user is not alerted to the shadow ban, they will not understand why their posts suddenly receive no engagement.


Twitter direct messaging engineer Pranay Singh admitted to mass-banning accounts that express interest in God, guns, and America, during a Project Veritas investigation.

“Just go to a random [Trump] tweet and just look at the followers. They’ll all be like, guns, God, ‘Merica, and with the American flag and the cross,” declared Singh, who was secretly recorded by Project Veritas reporters. “Like, who says that? Who talks like that? It’s for sure a bot.”

This should be headline fucking news everywhere. Social media is censoring millions of American users for voicing their political opinions.

The American media: *crickets*

The silence if deafening.

Facebook Wants Mindless Consumers To Install Cameras and Microphones In Their Homes To Spy On Them 24/7 Reader 01/11/2018 (Thu) 22:07:54 Id: ea3d04 [Preview] No. 5373 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In George Orwell’s 1984, the oppressive rulers of Oceania use devices called telescreens to closely monitor and repress citizens.

Now Facebook looks set to follow in the Party’s footsteps by putting its own firm’s microphones and cameras into people’s homes.

The social network is planning to release its first ever piece of consumer hardware which will be called [will not shill this product].

The device will feature a 15inch screen, a wide-angle camera with facial recognition and microphones to allow voice recognition.

It’s expected to use facial recognition to allow people to log into their accounts without having to type in passwords and will be dedicated to video chat.

The gadget has been designed by a shadowy Facebook department called Building 8 that’s also working on mind-reading technology.

Building 8 is a top secret Facebook division which used to be headed up by Regina E. Dugan, former boss of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is dedicated to military research.

Apart from the potentially grave privacy implications of letting Facebook’s cameras and microphones into your home, there’s another clear fault with the gadget: it costs almost as much as an iPhone or iPad but probably does a lot less.

It makes me sick to my stomach people are so stupid and gullible to buy this crap. I'm almost losing faith in humanity at this point. *sigh*

I lost faith years ago, including you.
Instead of reporting shit nobody really cares about, I'm building tools nobody in their right minds will ever use:

I don't think a lot of people would know how to use those tools if they are too tech-savvy. It would be cool to have a P2P-like client that was an image board creation platform where people could store their own boards and all the info associated with their boards onto their harddrives.

It would need to be easy enough for the average normfag like myself to use though.

You see, this is why I gave up on humanity, esp. you.
Normal people can't into security, and assume is a binary decision.
And you replied from the same ID.
Btw, endchan hasn't restored their i2p proxy, so GL.

Thanks for making me increase its google metrics you dumb cunt. This is what I get from people who think chan users are tools who take everything at face value, the sargoy types who think they're leading a revolution by using 4D mind games.
