I am glad she got her money. Fuck Wal-Mart! Are all of them doing this country wide, or just mainly in Alabama?
In a surprise twist, Tucker Carlson defends Chris Cuomo.


No, Tucker. You don't defend your brother if they've done something illegal. And you definitely don't do something corrupt just to cover his tracks
Just
Cop got fired for it. Investigation for possible criminal charges apparently also ongoing.
Psych evaluation is needed for all officers. Just like those that enlist in the Army, Navy, Marines, etc. There was literally no reason for this to happen. I hope the man gets life in prison instead of the death penalty. Though I don't know the state laws of Arizona.

The problem will be that psych evals don't help if you don't make changes to the decision-makers beforehand. Otherwise, you end up with the current group of assholes using the psych evals to ensure all new cops are also assholes. We already have proof that they purposely weed out potential recruits who do too well on the entrance exams as an example.

Okay just chiming in to ask, is that definition of full actually what's being argued here? Is Crimson literally asking a for a referendum on every state decision. Because several pages ago I posted what I meant when I was arguing for direct democracy (seriously this argument has been going on for so long you guys). Is it possible you guys are just talking past each other? Because for me when I say, "full direct democracy" what I mean is to entirely replace the system we have now and have NO "representative" democracy.
This conversation didn't actually start between Crimson and myself; it started with Gergar12 here advocating for "universal direct democracy", and explicitly against both capitalism and socialism. He then clarified here that what that entailed was getting rid of almost all hierarchies (including vesting some people with political power via elections). Only exceptions he noted were for military, student-teacher, or parent-child hierarchies.

It's that contention I began to argue against, and then Crimson began to argue against me. I have specified over 10 times now that I am not against referenda existing. I am against "full" or "universal" direct democracy.

Yeh I think you were being trolled
No.

This video has got nothing to do with a company. It's just masks. But, apparently wearing a mask makes you a communist


You can listen to the rest if you want. Most relevant stuff is in the first 2 mins

Just because the UK doesn't have this particular nonsense, doesnt make it not true of the US. The US is far closer to ideological rants of Iran than it is to the UK (i.e. making up shit so they can cancel people's speech.) Communism is just everything they dislike. It's got nothing to do with reality.

Edit: Just this last paragraph I really want to reinforce. A decade or two ago, when you wanted to disparage something, you would call it gay. Did it have anything to do with homosexuality? Of course not. It's just a way to denote something is evil and wrong and needs to be excised from the community

Um the PEPE suggest that's somewhat of a joke account / parody.
You'd be wrong. It's been confirmed the poster is doing this unironically.

No, Dwarvenhobble insists that conservatives are always stable and rational in their statements, so it obviously must be Communist.

Who by, the poster themselves who are likely just adding to the trolling?

Nope, I've never said that. I've said so called progressives are becoming increasingly less stable

No reason to not take them at their word. You got proof otherwise?

Plenty of people play a bit online on twitter and based on just the account avatar alone they were using I'd suspect they weren't telling the truth but doing a long form bit.

So conservatives actually can be ducktits crazy?
Yes, but I've not seen it embraced or excused to nearly such a degree by people as the more crazy self proclaimed progressives which generally sees a lot of attempts to deflect or just dropping down to personal attacks rather than actually acknowledging them

Man if you're in America, in the future your just as fucked as the rest of the world. If covid won't get you, climate change will, if climate change won't get you a civil war over ideology will, if that doesn't get you, corporate goon squads, in a class revolt will, and if all of those don't get you, nuclear war could.

And for the first time I can't really fault Joe Biden for this, he ended drone strikes in Iraq, and Syria, and lowered them elsewhere, he's buying a government fleet of EVs, yes he's no FDR, but congress is full of too many assholes to do anything right now other then business as usual, and I guarantee if a progressive win or someone who is a racist fascist wins its civil war. If it's not the conservatives, it's the corporations, if it's not the corporations, it's the corrupt politicians. I also doubt that New Zealand will be safe because every billionaire going there will paint a giant bullseye on there for people to commandeer ships, and go there.

I am still making monthly donations to the national DSA, but I am not optimistic anything will get done even if put a billion dollars on the DSA. Because then the other size will spend ten billion. ( I don't have a billion dollars I am just giving a counterfactual)


Optimistic about what, if you are in the middle east you are screwed due to climate change, ditto for Central America, South America's slash, and burning of the rain forest, South America will become a proxy battleground between US and China, and will see fights between left, and right. North America isn't faring any better, the US is heading towards the troubles like in Ireland, and faces a whole host of problems like Florida having a large sinkhole,s no water on the East coast for long periods of time making food prices higher, there are guns everywhere in America, in Mexico cartels still reign, and in Canada, there will be allotted more illegal immigration to it by Americans, and Mexicans due to their safe distance from the chaos down south, but their polar vortex, and climate change storms will affect them as well. If you're in Europe you have Russia to deal with, and higher temperatures, and lots of refugees which will come in increasing numbers from North Africa, and the Middle East, good luck being politically stable. Asia faces a geopolitical crisis and lots of typhoons, and Africa will face lots of water problems like in South Africa, civil wars, and high overpopulation like Nigeria where they are projected to surpass the US's population right now with much fewer resources.

You can't change the world, the current leadership, and elite have dropped the ball, and no destroying their graves in the future or threatening to do so in the future right now won't help. These people have no shame.

LOL at Elon going to Mars, with what resources will you supply Mars.

What we need to do now is simple, everyone compromises. This is to ensure no one really loses. Everyone has to give a moderate amount of action. Wealthy countries have to cut some meat, and consumption from their diet, developing countries have to cut some coal from their energy grids, and undeveloped countries have to lower their birthrates somewhat via non-forceful measures like birth control. Or else the alternative is a lot of death and destruction. And that's not even scratching the surface.

Yes, you cannot buy as much as you want, or power as many factories as you want, or birth as many people as you want. We have had lots of freedom on the individual, local, state, and national levels, and look where it led us.

And before anyone says no telling people in the global south that they can't have babies as much is racists, classist, whatever. I don't agree, they will literally have to immigrate, and trek to Europe, or stay in their countries and die in large droves due to climate change in the future. It's not fair to the baby, and I don't agree that people will just let them in, if even the EU is paying off Liberian warlords to hold death camps for migrants now, I shudder to think what horrible things will occur later.

And yes middle-income countries like China, and India can't just use coal to power their economies like the west, the facts on he ground have changed, and there are second-order effects like people not agreeing to drive less in the west while China and India still burn metric tons of coal willy nilly.

And no the west won't just consume less, they will have to fund lots of less carbon energy projects, and do a myriad of things like agreeing to take in a certain number of people, and so fore.

But that won't happen. China and India will continue to burn coal, the US will continue to frack, the EU will still hold death camps for middle eastern migrants because EU leaders unlike what you think of their PR teams will also be sociopaths like many world leaders.

You've still not provided any evidence to the contrary of what I said.

You're not familiar with Trump cultists then.
