    U.S. Politics: Moscow Mitch

    Those don't look like they are in the spawning phase. ETA: Some checking suggests this particular incident was caused by a fishing accident rather than increased temperatures.

    If the global economy is fucked can it at least wait until after Canada's election? I don't need something that will help the conservatives get power happening.

    Or it's a sign that there have been so many shooting in the US now people can't keep them straight.

    Holy fuck, now they're projecting about projecting. It's projectception.

    Silly it may be, but it does seem to be getting to him. So I support it.

    u.s. politics: sundowning on the american empire

    Way I see it, if anyone ever again mentions how the need their guns and the second amendment to protect from government tyranny, the only reasonable response to that is now to punch them in the face. We've got a prime example of actual government tyranny and the kind of people who used to spout off about fighting government tyranny aren't just not doing anything, they're actively supporting it. On another note, I've gotten a pay raise recently and so wanted to donate to an organization that works on these issues. The ACLU seems the obvious choice but I wanted to know if anyone had any other suggestions?

    So, harsher measures against "illegal" immigrants have quickly moved into abducting legal immigrants, and people who were born there on the grounds they have dark skin. Also killing people who were sent to countries they never lived in and couldn't speak the language. Now Trump is calling for the death of "mentally ill" criminals, no points for guessing where that will lead. Look I've hit Nazi Germany bingo here, can we skip the appeasement step and just go straight to invading them?

    A guy who thinks that students should avoid sociology, anthropology, and English lit because of neo-marxist corruption, and the guy who thinks that people will be able to sell their houses if sea level rises. Some real intellectual heavy weights there.

    The USSR engaged in several pogroms against Jews. Pretty sure they weren't all that fond of capitalism. Funnily enough (not actually), many of those who fled Russia settled in Germany trying to escape that persecution. The Nazi's then used that to stoke antisemitism. Oh it wasn't all Jews, just those foreign refugees. They're the bad ones, they're causing crime, and taking native German's jobs. And mostly, they aren't integrating into German culture. Didn't take very long for it to go from just the refugee's are the problem to all Jews are the problem. It can also be addressed, at least in part, by not giving easy access to guns, because suicide is also an impulse issue, and if people don't have access to a fast and reliable way of killing themselves they aren't as likely to kill themselves. I know people who are still alive because they didn't have guns. Better mental health would be great, it's not going to stop a guy who has yet to be diagnosed though. Sounds like a pitch for a bad movie. Chinese hackers vs Russian hacker in the battle for the fate of the US. And you're not sure who to root for. (China I'd be rooting for China)

    There's some really horrific shit in the dark parts of the internet (8chan, etc) combining mass shooters with the worst parts of toxic gamer culture. And yes these sick fucks rank mass shooter on a higher kill count = higher score basis. That's not the fault of games themselves anymore than football riots are the fault of football existing, but it's really fucked up.

    No, they're just going to scapegoat the mentally ill. Even though there's absolutely no evidence any of these people were.

    What should be done... about climate change

    Similarly, similarly, were we to subsidize these products, or hell just remove the subsidies we give the other side. this switch could happen much faster.
  13. Given the complete lack of standardization in police training in the US who the fuck knows. After that whole "police have no duty to protect" thing I'm still shocked you allow those fuckers to have guns at all. Why the fuck would you want to arm a large group who considers their own safety more important than others?

    Are you really this stupid? Legal immigrants and just straight up US citizens are already being arrested by ICE. ICE has had it's power massively increased which will only exacerbate that issue. And the US president just recently told 3 people born in the US, and a 4th who's been a US citizen for 19 years to go back to where they came from. This isn't an unfounded fear, this is shit that's already happening. It's not demonizing anyone to point out the shit they are actually doing. Like did you not see the post about the 13yr old who's carrying around a copy of his passport in the hopes it will protect him from this shit?

    US Politics: Culture Club

    Make sure to include the various non-white US citizens that were also locked up. Remember, the Republican focus on "illegal" immigration is just a starting point.
