Chatbots to Save Democracy

And how does Making America Great Again make you feel?

Donald is bored. He has no blog anymore. The Southern District of New York is after him, and there's just noplace for an alternate-reality guy to vent. Only the dumber members of the GOP return his calls, and Marjorie isn't that fun to talk to. He needs interaction and drama and chaos somehow. However, we need democracy.

To prevent the inevitable clash, I propose we dumb ELIZA down a bit to his level of conversation and let her keep him busy. He could have as many ELIZA followers as he wants. Just keep it unplugged from the internet and we're good to go.

Doh. I posted something political.

The latest news from Neptune [xenzag, Jun 03 2021]


       On this one, I'm with [bigsleep].   

       Don't get me wrong; I'd be quite happy to see old Donald go to jail: however, hating Trump is a distraction from, not a contribution to, making the world better. And it's certainly not an original idea.

       The last laugh is with Trump as he's set to become the new president in August. (link) Apparently millions of uncounted Trump votes have been found hidden in a cave in Utah that were being guarded by a race of two headed liberal zombies sent from Neptune. The combined forces of the NRA and the Big Boys Of Golf have broken through the salt packet barricades, and the alien zombies have fled back to Neptune along the special Covid vaccine light beams created for them by Bill Gates. (big happy croissant)

       undisguised rant with an extremely light dusting of flour [-]

       What Bigs? You don’t like a political discussion that’s thinly disguised as an idea? Well bust my buffers.
RayfordSteele, Jun 03 2021

       Well, A knowledgeable devil advocate chatbot to talk about and make you think about your politics, in "private", seems a good idea.

       there's so much saving of democracy from both sides going on, I'm actually starting to get worried.   

       I'm just imagining (and drooling) -- a world with no fillibuster   

       Social Security and Medicare is privatized in 2000 (or maybe in 84?)   

       Obamacare repealed in 2016?   

       Wall allocation to Trump's request in 2016?   

       Abolish the department of education? why not?   

       Those would be a few, but who cares -- if you can never lose another election, why worry about yin-yanging laws every two to 6 years -- it's not really an issue? Besides, Elizabeth Warren has a plan for that

       We don't negotiate with terrorists.   

       When the GOP decides to stop using quasi-terrorist tactics, we'll talk. But until they decide to actually govern and bargain in good faith, we're done. I'm done playing Mitch's bitch.

       Wasting away again in Mar-a-Lago-Ville.
Searchin' for someone to sex'lly assault.
Some people claim that there's a V.P. to blame,
But I know... it's Dominion's fault.
RayfordSteele, Jun 06 2021

       Is there a polar opposite to the whole kit 'n' caboodle that is politics? I am starting to yearn for that.

       A hermitage?
pertinax, Jun 07 2021

       the only party that can be for fully ending the filibuster is the party that expects to never lose another election.   

       Well, maybe Manchin will add to the fun and switch parties, that would be pretty funny.   

       It just happened -- just -- that Obamacare survived cause McCain wouldn't vote for against it. It's as if you're convinced that it's inconceivable Trump or one of his minions could win in 2024, but you want to rush and take out any limits on what the gov. can do.   

       Of course you retain the Orwellian ability to be completely against ending the filibuster as soon as power changes. You keep it in the same place where you keep your 100% conviction about how Mitch's minions play up the Wuhan lab for political gains, and the dossier is Putin's compromat.

       There are better vehicles of good governance by compromise beyond the fillibuster. It is a monumental time-wasting exercise that I never cared for. It may have protected some things I agree with, but the same could be said if the entire Republican party got sick from cancer. There are better processes to research and/or create.
