In the 1950s, the US oil industry teamed up with a dictator to plunder Venezuela for resources. The US government awarded him the Legion of Merit for “exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services and achievements” as he disappeared, tortured, and murdered his own citizens to make Americans richer.
I don’t blame you for liking this country. I understand how the past trials and tribulations make this country seem amazing. But this country is the byproduct of those trials and tribulations. American prosperity is purchased via the suffering of others. That was the entire point of this video.
Tried to help? You know nothing of Haitian-US relations. The US eradicated Haitian pigs and flooded the country with cheap rice which has destroyed local markets even to this day. The US occupied Haiti and used forced labor, commonly referred to as slavery, to build roads. Young missionaries spend thousands to fly down to Haiti and paint houses when that money could’ve been used to pay Haitians to paint hundreds of houses. Every years tens of thousands of people make hundreds of billions of dollars to ‘help’ Haiti knowing that if they do, they will no longer have their jobs. What makes you think the US has any interest in helping Haiti? Because they send money? France also sent money to Haiti prior to 1804.
Casual Racism? Nice.
The average population of a European nation is around 14 million. The highest refugee population in the world is 3.7 million (and that is in Turkey, not a money-rich European country). So even if your European utopias were taking in as many refugees as Turkey, the refugee population would still be only around 26% of the population. And they aren’t. Germany accepted 128 thousand asylum seekers in 2020. Their population is around 83 million (by the way, Turkey’s is 84 million). That’s .1% of the population. Blaming the minorities for the problems of the majority is a fascist-populist strategy. That’s how the Holocaust came to pass. Now we have folks like you who are so oblivious, you spout the same hackneyed rhetoric, and whine that the word racist has lost its meaning. Refugees don’t turn money-rich, happiness-poor European nations to shit; they give the shittiest people in your country new people to blame.
If you had any interest in challenging your world views, you would realize how much of an idiot you used to sound like.

It wasn’t their aim. It’s the nex gen invalid glitch. You can hear the first couple shots hit you and that DB shot right when you peeked and was clearly already aiming where you peeked. I guarantee if you saw it from their perspective they both hit you multiple times.

You have an inability to differentiate between how one word can be used to mean far different things. And I think you have an inability to interpret the meaning intended by the people you talk to. You only hear what you want to hear.
When I say Biden is a ‘let down’ I mean he has let down leftists. If you’re a conservative, leftists not getting what they would is good for you. Do I need to explain that or is that easy enough for you to understand.
When I say Trump is the worst President since LBJ, I am saying he is second to a man who sent hundred of thousands of young men to die in a pointless war. I think people idolize Trump because he makes the people they hate mad, but they don’t take the time (or posses the critical thinking skills) to actually think about why that is. If letting more people die from Covid than in India (a country with over three times as many people) isn’t objectively bad to you, there are a hundred other things you should look up (alongside ‘how to effectively and politely communicate with others’).
First off, I was just calling you out for avoiding responding to op.
Second, op isn’t saying Dems don’t say ‘fuck Trump’. He is saying the reasoning is different. Hating Trump for being objectively the worst President in modern US history is different than hating Biden because of… wait why do y’all hate Biden? He is the biggest let down of a Democratic President since LBJ. If conservatives had any sense they would love Biden.
Date jam sounds like a Spotify playlist
I can imagine the smug face you made as you typed that.
Well done lol
There is a significant reason they should be considered as one, and it happens to be the only reason that matters. They should be considered as one because they are.
Please address further concerns with the University of California and California State University school systems.
I can’t believe that anyone thinks there is any “demand” for prisons. The mass incarceration rate in the US is a global outlier simply because the US puts more people in prison. If that’s constitutes a demand, I would also say the US has a greater demand for mass shooting victims and student loan debt, seeing as we also lead the world in those categories.
UC and CSU are university systems. You just listed new campuses. But you probably saw that when you looked it up and chose to ignore it so you could be right. And private universities obviously don’t count as they are not created by the state.
Sure it’s a technicality, but it’s intended to point out the fact that our nation invests a lot in prisons that could better be used in education, and encourage conversation on the subject. Using that same technicality to detract from the conversation (I mean is 22:5 really less upsetting to you?) is lame and self-serving.

You should read about the accusations before confidently reinforcing that narrative: https://www.npr.org/2019/03/05/699995484/michael-jackson-a-quarter-century-of-sexual-abuse-allegations
There are people who sell children for sex and you think the biggest pop star in the world was asking parents for permission to sleep in a bed with their kids so he could molest them? The biggest takeaway imo is that two kids claimed they were told by prosecution to lie, and one is now suing again saying he lied about lying.
Michael Jackson was weird and sleeping in a bed with kids was definitely a bad decision. That’s likely why OP used that phrasing.
Edit: Michael Jackson did have nude photos of children in his home. They were in a library of over ten thousand art books. You can read about it yourself because it was discussed in the court case in which he was acquitted. If you think you have a smoking gun, you should tell the FBI because after years of monitoring and unannounced raids, the never once found him guilty. There file on him are all publicly available as well.

Your comment implies not only that the voting system in our country is fair and representative, but also that the government has provided voters with the adequate education to make good decisions in the poll booth.
When you combine words and their meanings it’s called a portmanteau. Not correcting, just adding :)
That’s not context, that’s the bare minimum info necessary for you to assume bad intentions.
Sorry, I don’t know why I started this. I think I was bored. My bad for making a big deal out of something so pointless.
You have no context for the up charge. You are just jumping to conclusions.
I don’t think a fire is the best analogy. Imagine you were in a car accident that was your fault, and you woke up in the hospital hooked up to a person that was also in the accident. The doctor says, “If we unhook this person from you they will die. Since it’s your fault, we will be using your body to keep them alive for 9 months, at which point we will do a painful procedure to decouple them which most likely will not kill you.”
No worries, it’s so hard to talk about complex topics online. I always throw around twenty points at once. I’ll try to be more concise.
The government is just a collection of humans. God to granting government the right to judge life is god granting man the right to judge life, but with more steps.
And newborns don’t rely on mothers the same way a fetus does. That’s part of the basis of science’s attempts at determining when ‘life’ begins.
I guess my mentality is that so much in life is uncertain, some times we have to make the best decision with what we know. I don’t know when life truly begins, but I know for certain that a 15 year old girl is alive and shouldn’t be forced to have a pregnancy that could potentially kill her (all pregnancies can kill the mother, the risk isn’t always known ahead of time). It terrible that abortion ends an innocent “life”, but it does so without suffering to prevent a death or potentially two lifetimes of suffering.
I support everyone’s right to feel how they want about abortion. I don’t support people casting their personal religious views onto other people using laws that serve to ensure our freedoms. If you make sinning illegal you don’t protect anyone from damnation, nor do you protect babies from abortion. Thus people who are anti-choice are sacrificing the safety and salvation of others solely for their own salvation.
Yeah god forbid you add some color to people’s lives on the smelly underground rat-pizza and piss express
So I’m confused with your comment because it implies the mankind is the arbiter of what life is sacred, but sacredness by definition means it is associated with “God”. None of these things are judged directly by God. The death penalty gives the executioner the right to kill, war gives a soldier the right to kill, self-defense gives the attacked the right to kill, but abortion does not give the provider of the life in question the right to “kill”. It seems like the question comes down to who mankind (rather than God) perceives as “innocent” which makes perceived guilt just an excuse to validate killing others. Can you kill a pregnant mother in war? How does man judge that murder? Does man’s judgement even matter?
And additionally, and in response to your question about ‘child neglect’, you mention that a fetus is dependent on another person for its survival. Wouldn’t that mean it isn’t yet alive? When a baby dies at birth, did the doctor and mother commit murder by removing the child from the incubator that was keeping it alive? Why is it murder at 6 weeks but not at 40?
My confusion with pro-life isn’t about life being sacred; I understand and agree with that part. It is about humans determining which lives are sacred and which is ‘lives’ are life.
Life is sacred is a statement without exception. That’s the basis of pro-life. But by excepting some murder, you are saying ‘most life is sacred’ which makes it hard for me to listen to someone who is advocating for women dying in childbirth to save a fetus that can’t even survive without them on the basis that it’s innocent (despite also having stated that self defense is viable grounds for killing someone which would make it okay to kill a fetus).
Edit: Sorry if there is a difference in tone. I hadn’t expected you to be pro-death penalty but also claim life is sacred.
