Because this is the most important thing in the world right now, Donald Trump has decided that it's time to ban TikTok, though it is unclear how or when he plans to pass the ban, most are suggesting it will be through executive order. So, if you like your quirky little videos, get your fill now because the TikToks is going bye bye soon!


(just avoid social media in general...seriously...)

This doesn't surprise me because at this point United States is Rome while Trump in Nero playing his fiddle as we all burn and die.

India already did it. I am shocked people want to use the app knowing that it has been collecting data for China. I mean iPhones have been detecting this. It isn't any secret. I guess online fame is more important than privacy to a lot of people. Oh well.

There truly is no such thing as privacy for if the government wants to know something about you or big business they will find out.

There are ways to protect yourself though. Most people either don't know about them or don't care.

I don't think people realize how much their data is worth on a collective figure. I mean they sell this information to businesses for a huge profit.

Even the protective ways really aren't enough, truthfully. Honestly, most don't care because they are worried about other things in their life and selling data is meh to them.

I think, if people knew they wouldn't care honestly because it is meaningless to them and because of consumerism more or less

On a side note, Trump should have been like "I fully support TikTok. It is the best app. It is the greatest app in the world. Using this app shows you agree with me." and at least half the country would have uninstalled it. lolol

Capitalism is good when people are aware of how it works and businesses are kept in line. The issue is that a lot of people don't know how it works and too many businesses are not kept in check. This is why like 10 companies own so much profit and stock on the market. They should make it where a business can only earn so much before it has to be broken up into smaller businesses so you have a more fair market across the board.

Oh well. I will just focus on not overspending myself and teach my kids not to. That is all you can do. I mean people have become millionaires earning less than 100k a year by budgeting their money right and not buying outside their needs.

Yeah, this is more about China being able to sell data for money vs the US being able to do it.

He summed it up well for anyone who is curious. They don't like other countries using us, they want to use us themselves! lol

Also, companies are trying to buy a share in TikTok within the US to keep the app alive. So we will see what happens.

Backing away from an immediate ban, Trump said on Monday if Microsoft or another "secure" and "very American" company doesn't buy the U.S. leg of the Chinese-owned operation by Sept. 15, the wildly-popular video app will cease operating in the U.S.

"I set a date of around Sept. 15, at which point it's going to be out of business," Trump told White House reporters. "But if somebody, and whether it's Microsoft or somebody else, buys it, that'll be interesting."

Tiktok is making people dumber and China is profiting off of their stupidity. But now, don't ban it yet. Let Bill Gates collect some of that thot hoe in training cash.

I just want the app to be banned, not because it is from China or it is being used as spyware but because we don't need any more social platforms that encourage people to be more stupid.
