    Some people just want money and power. They don't care who they have to make a deal with.

    I put these tech folks in the same category as the "movie stars". Who cares??? Bill Gates will get in bed with who ever it takes to make himself more money. He could care less about the rest of us.

    This morning after breakfast I'm sitting there and began to think my kitchen table was in cahoots with China.
    corrosion adds flavor

    my coffee cup
    my breakfast dish
    the toaster

    oh, and the phone I took these pictures was made in China. I've heard money managers say that if we stopped trade with China the value of the dollar would drop 25%...that's above my paygrade but I do know the hip bone is connected to the thigh bone.

    Your kitchen table doesn't collect personal info and monitor your behavior. Tic Toc does.

    The CEO of Reddit, who has strong Leftwing biases, hates Tic Toc. He described as fundamentally parasitic software that is always spying on you.

    Apple recently caught Tic Toc apps on iPhone snooping around for user's info.

    It's basically a Trojan horse from our buddy, and Whinie the Poo doppelganger, Xi Jinping.

    Naturally, China denies such allegations, and now Tic Toc is looking to become a US company to help alleviate suspicions. As if becoming a US based company somehow proves your loyalty to the US and America values.

    EDIT: another interesting article about Tic Tok and how evil it is:

    I believe I've been compromised using this device, but you are always more right.

    And imagine China’s outrage if this was American company doing the same thing to them. I know I can’t avoid Chinese products as a whole but I certainly choose another product even if it’s more just to avoid Chinese manufactured products when possible.
