    Biden still locks kids in cages

    At no point did I blame them.

    Biden still locks kids in cages

    Whoooooosh! Someone argued to me that borders opening allows the current migrant situation, and your defense of that is that refugees are legal? I really think you may have missed the point in a big way here. The point of that phrasing was not to moralize the actions of migrants, it was to...

    Biden still locks kids in cages

    You think closed borders were preventing a crisis of illegal immigration?

    Biden still locks kids in cages

    And by total coincidence I'm sure, once the US friendly regimes are out of power, people begin fleeing the countries.

    Biden still locks kids in cages

    Pretty confident you're thinking of someone else. Sure, but you're not talking about current day Guatemala. The current migration crisis out of central America has decidedly occurred after the era of US interventionism in the region. People crossing the southern US border aren't fleeing US bombs.

    2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic (Vaccination 2021 Edition)

    Having options is a good thing. Having different manufacturing costs, storage requirements, distribution methods, etc allows for different solutions to be enacted where and when they are better suited. Like, if everyone was copying the vaccine that needs ultra-cold storage, we'd be having even...

    Biden still locks kids in cages

    Did you even read the post you were responding to? They were explaining to you that hotels are cheaper because they are a worse solution, that the united states isn't just shoving people in rooms with beds, the facilities for children especially have recreational, educational, and medical...

    Probably not getting a minimum wage hike.

    That's fine. I'll concede that to you. If it's alright with you, I'd be happy to agree that minimum wage changes would not likely hurt rural areas, but nor would it necessarily solve any of the current problems at all. Which is perfectly congruent with my original point, that the argument about...

    Joe Biden backs away from a public option.

    a) I never said anything like "conservatism is the real punk rock" b) Agema is the one that used the term "unpragmatic progressive", and I actively rejected it c) If it wasn't already clear, I greatly care about meanings and origins of terms. I don't want to call someone a "cultural marxist" if...

    Joe Biden backs away from a public option.

    You're really gonna make your stand on "if someone isn't speaking to my ideal vision, they aren't talking about reality"?

    Probably not getting a minimum wage hike.

    That isn't what I said if you're trying to pick at my specific words. That also isn't what I meant in the context where my point was clearly "the middle of nowhere thrives by making more than minimum wage rather than depending on it". Stop trying to find ways to call me wrong and actually engage...

    Joe Biden backs away from a public option.

    Again, I'm talking about reality, and not your delusional idealized vision of what should be. The reality of self-governance isn't what you wish self-governance would be. That's not a problem with my argument.

    Biden still locks kids in cages

    Holding children in facilities is more humane than any available alternative. It was in the last administration and it is in this one too. People were so excited to blame Trump for "concentration camps" that they threw all sense out the window.

    CPEC Is off to a fine start

    Seriously though, that didn't happen. Fox News and Republicans did not lose their minds over it, and the single person of prominence who used the concept as effectively click-bait had their show taken away for doing so.

    Joe Biden backs away from a public option.

    I'm describing the single reality of self-governance. Places with representative governments do not act with even a vague unified vision of what should be. They flutter around back and forth with the dictates of the times. That is reality. I'm describing real phenomena. You are only describing...
