  1. 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 both are terrible shitty people and have been around far too fucking long and the entire rest of the world fucking hates muslims
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. At this point anything the Democrats should do should be to get Republicans on record voting against it.
  10. Bush didn't, but there's a reason Trump was called a "fox news president." Because that shit was churning in the background. I mean this is from 2015 but there was large conservative media bias between the 90s and 2008 or so. Jon Stewart was considered novel during his time because he was pretty much the antithesis to that right wing media apparatus. Unfortunately, the fake news shows in his wake aren't as novel and aren't as in hostile a media environment to their opinions. Regardless, anyone who was against Iraq or Afghanistan wars were vilified. Look at the Dixie Chicks; hell, Taylor Swift said that she didn't start doing politics publicly until basically the Roy Moore election because of how hard the Dixie Chicks were shit on for expressing anti-war sentiments. So no, it wasn't Bush. But there was clearly a greater 'patriotism and freedom' initiative going on after the 911 attacks, and it's something we can easily look back at now as the most blatant display of jingoistic bullshit ever. Flashback to when NYT and WaPo were pro-Iraq War. I'd say Trump did a better job of preventing us from falling into authoritarianism than Bush did, by this weird ass metric of the Bush administration basically forcing us all into war.
  11. The effects of Trump's foreign policy is yet to be seen. Trump also upped drones and bombings with significantly less oversight. He emboldened China and basically fucked any chance of leverage for the TPP. He basically let China start moving in on African countries to help their infrastructure. The shattering of ties and trust is bad and we won't see the results of this near apocalyptic mess for years.
  12. The evil is gone!!!!! Now we can finally stop reading twitter to figure out what the fuck our president is thinking. We can just yell at him to do shit instead
  13. Yep. Our currently 2-3 worst presidents are given shit because of the civil war they let happen. I think this is going to be exactly the same idea.
  14. one of the greatest, in fact. It's not even that he's terrible right now either (he's nowhere near as bad as final season Manning), it's just the balls dont have the zip they used to, and for someone who relies on anticipation and tight window throws it's finally basically hit its limit.
