Re: General Political Thread

While that's all fine there's still going to be 2,500 troops in Afghanistan assuming that all actually happens. And it'd be more accurate to say Sudan and Israel are normalizing relations rather than being "at peace" as if they were at war. Our involvement in the middle east is a function of Saudi A...

Re: General Political Thread

TIL very many people don't know about "coyote" being a term for human traffickers. PSA: It's not Mexicans riding in on wild dogs. Drug mules aren't actual mules either. It's a major money making operation for cartels, corrupt politicians, gangs, and puts the people being trafficked in life threateni...

Re: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

They're already using their AI to take down everything they can related to disinfo and it's letting conspiracies stay up and taking down debunking videos. It hasn't slowed them down. They're now going to target disinfo saying that the vaccine "will kill people or cause infertility, or that microchip...

Re: General Political Thread

I don't follow German news much. That's all awful. It's been a bad year everywhere.

Re: General Political Thread

What are the top issues in Germany right now? Last story I remember out of there was a minister killing himself due to coronavirus pressure.

Re: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

It should be pointed out that correlation is not causation and "employ proven science" is a weaselly phrase. In fact the politicization of the pandemic and treating science as an oracle that guides public policy comes off as technocratic and authoritarian which people are more likely to resist. That...

Re: General Political Thread

We don't need two Dakotas (keep the bank though), two Virginias, and Wyoming should just be given to the highest bidder. Or just scrap the Senate all together.

Re: General Political Thread

Alright, let's try talking about politics outside of the United States and see if that helps this discussion. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/oct/12/kim-jong-un-sheds-tears-as-he-delivers-rare-apology-to-north-korea-over-failings https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/25/world/asia/korea-kim-jong-un...

Re: [Poll] General Political Thread.

American media hates Trump with a passion. I clicked into this thread and read this just after seeing this lol. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbwXv327zlg Not quite that simple. I'll just say the media didn't give Ron Paul or Andrew Yang coverage at all, but mention Trump every 2 seconds. Do with ...

Re: [Poll] General Political Thread.

He said the GND would fund itself and then said he was against it lol. And really it's not a matter of "want" when it comes to coal jobs. There's more solar jobs than coal jobs, but when it comes to West Virginia and Kentucky that's multi-generation coal country and there's nothing else left for the...

Re: [Poll] General Political Thread.

Why was this thread buried for everyone in the first place, instead of just removal of posting rights for the person who caused it to be buried in the first place? Because this thread sucks. On January 21st it's going back in the hole. It's open because of strange times. Honestly if "freedom of spe...

Re: [Poll] General Political Thread.

Assuming Trump was infected the day he posted then the next 72 hours should show how it will turn out. Days 7-9 are especially important.

Nothing yet. Haven't heard from Quill since I brought this up. I presume he's been busy.

Re: Unpopular Opinions/Free Speech Topic

Here's something I noticed while watching some TLou2 gameplay: I'm cool with highly over-exaggerated violence in games like MadWorld, for example, yet I find the "realistic" depiction of violence in a lot of modern Triple A games extremely off putting, in some cases downright gross. I didn't "enjoy...
