  1. specifically heres a nice spot for it https://www.theatlantic.com/shadowland/
  2. didn't trump aggressively go after student loan debt -- during a pandemic -- and charge interest the only actual reasons to vote for brexit - profiteering - spite odds are you're in the latter boat and it definitely informs your politics
  3. Yes. I am fully aware of this. I'm not an idiot. This is the first time I've actually seen protests and consistent media pushback. "making no attempt to not sound jaded" has been you for like the entire time I've known you. it really comes off a certain way and dismissive when you've been so consistent about it. Am I reading too much into that statement? Quite possibly. But I mean, when you've been so persistent in this regard, I'm really just expressing my annoyance. You can mind it or not, I really don't care. I'm not asking you to be indignant. How could I possibly? I'm fairly certain you're some white guy and you don't feel an existential crisis anytime Islam's brought up on the news, even tangentially. And I mean this in the least dismissive way possible, since I know you know for a fact that I feel this way about the modern world. But, there is a very sharp contrast in a lot of what's happening, and you always seem to push back on new ideas right off the bat instead of investigating or questioning. That's pretty much your MO as soon as you walk into any thread or discussion here. And I mean, it's fairly obvious why at this point anyway: Likud need a coalition. They need a coalition with the far right. What better way to get support from the Jewish equivalent of a Nazi party?
  4. I just get annoyed that 'x person cares' 'oh it's always been happening.' pretty common from you. Its always so condescending. Like ppl shouldn't be angry lol, you're allowed to have reignited anger though without people pretending it's new though. But I suppose considering how entrenched it is universally, getting current leaders out of office. Except I don't think we will cycle out leaders fast enough. Progressive and young leaders in the US do not look the other way I mean even this year is the most pushback on the narratives I've seen in a while.
  5. Biden has sent aid to Palestine ftr it was just 3 orders of magnitude lower than Israel. But yeah that lines up with what I know. The extremist Zionism is a very strong faction in the US and for whatever reason wants to force the rapture.
  6. I'm being visceral but also I don't care much, one of the journalists said they lost a decade of work in that fire p much. Pretty sure the Likud is trying to consolidate their coalition anyway. Also, eclipse, there's Myanmar on top of China... And the Modi government is definitely full of Islamophobic nationalism. The Jewish side of the US is actually quite split; it's basically Orthodox that's pro-Israel and everyone else is anti-Israel. Pretty much the reason why the mayoral primaries in New York clearly took a side. Also have no time for Tryhard outright being jaded everytime I post about shit that sucks. What's the point of this subforum then?
  7. but in the end this is the way i see it palestinians don't get anxiety apparently israel has nukes it's 2021 and the world is basically reset after a pandemic and israeli people attacked people in a mosque hamas and netanyahu and the likuud both are all terrible shitty people and have been around far too fucking long and the entire rest of the world fucking hates muslims
  8. I'm basically a little too heated to give a proper intro topic, but given the victim blaming from the Western Media and politicians alike Very fucking difficult to not make this thread. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-57053074 Basically, a load of Palestinian Muslims praying at Al-Aqsa mosque were attacked by police in the middle of fucking Ramadan, killing 20 people (including 9 kids) and injuring 300 more. This is quite literally a fucking war crime and I view the western media as concern trolling when Palestine did not take the attack sitting down. Forcing Muslims to go to war as Eid is approaching really makes me viscerally wish the instigators within the Israeli government would go to hell in a snap, but I don't have faith that anyone will enforce that kind of justice. West hates it when Islamic populations get too big anyway.
  9. There really hasn't been much news outside of the passage of the stimulus (I got my stimmy). How's everyone feeling about the administration in general? Seems like filibuster reform is gonna happen eventually, but it won't be entirely removed.
  10. Question: what news do you consume? If your answer is nowhere near along the lines of Fox News, British tabloids or similar right wing bullshittery, then you definitely don't fall under the category within the statement I made. Furthermore, if you're not American, you too are not the target of my statement. To further compound to that question, do you agree with gay marriage? Pro-capital punishment? Are you pro-choice or anti-choice? etc He was mentioning particular viewpoints rather than placing everyone who is "right wing" in the same tent. He tried to halt deportations for his first 100 days. A federal judge struck it down. It sucks that if you're not paying attention to the news, you don't really know the limits of executive power and then you blame everything on the president. Because I'm starting to learn a lot more of them by the day. im a brown person and im a hilda simp too it all works out. I also haven't lived in Ellicott City in any way, shape, or form since 2014, since my permanent address is in Laurel now and I've been living in Tucson since 2014... you'd think I would update my location (cuz uh that's been my set location for like 12 years now), but I don't feel like fixing it. Two important elections in a row and I didn't change my voting registration to Arizona. Pretty dumb in retrospect, but at least we made it to 2021. And I'm going back to permanently live in MD after I graduate anyway.
  11. Does empathy cause neurosis? (kind of a joke) I mean a good chunk of things are people being satisfied with stuff how they are without knowing why they need to change, and complacency (and the right wing media) builds narcissism. Nice to see another MDer in here, though.
  12. While the senate is something we can talk about -- they actually pretty much completely failed in Maine, for one example, and I definitely think they could've tried harder in Iowa -- the house seats that we lost in 2020 were considered to be relatively miraculous acquisitions in 2018. Let's not get ahead of ourselves. The only rumblings I've heard that could justify the witnesses is the fact that the witnesses were not necessarily reliable or had reliable information. I dunno though, I would've loved to see witnesses but I also would much rather see monthly payments and weed and healthcare The Republican side of the impeachment was mostly a sham and you gotta wonder if we should mentally screen our politicians for sociopathy lol. I also just didn't watch any of either impeachment trials, but I also don't feel like I missed out on history cuz it was just obvious that former president cocksucker was going to get acquitted by his army of cock holsters in the senate
  13. I have a feeling that later this year will be a bit of a slowdown in terms of legislation -- or maybe, more specifically, we will find ourselves a lull soon -- and then election year is when they go balls to the wall. Manchin's view of the filibuster is still a little troubling.
  14. I know the main reason it's been brought up was in reference to the fact that the win should be by a margin greater than around 537 votes or whatever the margin was in Florida. Because Republicans have actively been trying to undermine democracy for 50 years. This is really par for the course imo. Good summary of 2000. I was about to turn 8 when all that was happening, so I just remember sitting in bed with my family watching the 2000 election results, and the news showing Bush/Gore anytime we visited somewhere else.
  15. At this point anything the Democrats should do should be to get Republicans on record voting against it.
