    John Oliver is the only talk show host that is making it work with no studio audience. He’s still as funny and informative as ever. Thank you John. You’re the bees knees

    Protesters on the run from the law that can’t stay away from the protesting scene and have active warrants = arrested due to their stupidity with social media. What’s the big deal?

    This is not a problem, because if Corona sticks around. We might be able to get around it wearing masks or other fun face covers for kicks and giggles so long as the world stays sick. This tech is also bad because it could become part of a Job Application to find files or things connected to the person. Should the person not wish to turn it over too. That means your last statement would mean, that making a message that shows up stating if this is used in any way but on my profile on Facebook or other such, all such uses step on my legal right to privacy and thus means a lawsuit will be in order if this has showed up, and not reporting to me that said image was found on a Facial Recognition system. Is also a lie to my safety and freedom.

    So John is advocating for defunding the police now?
    I don’t think I can co-exist with the moronic left anymore.
    A secession movement is necessary.

    People in the US: Wow, facial recognition? I’m gonna start wearing a mask everywhere!
    US Medical Authorities: Oh good, you should be wearing a mask right now because of the whole Covid-19 thing.
    People in the US: The government WANTS me to wear a mask? Fuck that, I won’t wear a mask, you fascists!!!
