NVIDIA just announced they are cancelling their TSMC made RTX 2060 due to supply issues. Again, I hope. Nay, I expect severe consequences for the Taiwanese manufacturer's year of lies and deception.
Wtf are you talking about?

Good luck with these. Doubt anything happens, and if it does, they will probably work out in a way that screws joe-average more, and makes the rich even richer.

THE US Congress behaves more and more like the PRC every day.

Ironically, the PRC behaves more and more like the constitutionally limited US government every day.

No wonder the PRC economy is moving forward and America's isn't.
Except the US congress doesn't send in tanks to murder their own students, commit genocide on entire ethnic groups and annex foreign protectorates.

But if they reign in Big Tech their online propagandits won't be able to help Biden steal another election. Surely they don't think CNN can push the propaganda alone?

Ah well there’ll still be the option to take a leaf out of the GOP’s book and turn to outright lying and blaming brown people.

This will never pass. It's all just some and mirrors.
Nuh, Uh! When Donald Trump reascends the Presidential Throne of the U S of A in August, he will ram this bill through Congress as if they were a tawdry, well used, rented, porn star, and he were, "Buck Hardsley"..

“Unregulated tech monopolies have too much power over our economy."

I'll fix it for him.

“Unregulated tech monopolies have too much power over our ignorant."

I agree. We already have thousands of Federal workers who make sure monopolies are not a thing in America. What have they been doing?

Why tirelessly not paying any attention and collecting their paychecks.

With that said, (to the upside :rolleyes: ),they also did tirelessly did nothing steadily through the pandemic, while so many just laid around, unemployed.

Still, I'd rather have Amazon, even if it's a monopoly, than listen to one more piece of the duplicitous bullsh!t that comes out of Mitch McConnell's mouth.

So you, like myself, don't own a cell phone? And couldn't the largest telecoms be considered monopolies? In point of fact they're legislated to be just that, monopolies.

I searched for educational ranking by state. You'll notice that the lowest 10 (40-50) are all southern, and all are RED states.


Scary thought, eh?
