Nobody is surprised by a dictator firming up his dictatorship.

Xijinping did it recently in China, now big boy shoes are on in Moskva.

Sad day, but really not that new in news. The whole government being forced to resign. That's a blow. Makes US of A look almost democratic

Virginia to enact gun control statewide in wake of democratic majority.

Antifa to march alongside gun rights supporters.

Canadian neo nazi and others arrested for planning to start a race war at gun rights rally.
>https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/01/17/virginia-gun-rally-3-more-suspected-neo-nazis-base-arrested/4499733002/

Might be interesting to see what happens. I find the biggest surprise being nazis trying to start a race war at the US capitol, not sure that is going to work out well. Glad I'm not going to be anywhere near that shit though, recipe for disaster. Like that guy that got arrested trying to set off fireworks at an armed rally. Kinda feel bad for moderate and left wing gun owners, the media is latching on to the crazed doomsday preppers and 14/88 crowd. Good to see antifa allegedly planning to stand alongside them.

This sounds like it went great actually. I honestly thought it was going to be a shit show. Who would have thought that neo-nazis would be kicked out of a rally in an ex-confederate state while they are allowed to hijack similar rallies on the progressive west coast.

I'm actually surprised at how sensibly progressive the Appalachian area has been, I imagine this is the Richard Ojeda crowd. I guess being held up as mascots for how plutocratic bureaucracy screws the every man then being screwed by a plutocrats who take control of the bureaucratic system can make an impression on people.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-48969432

>A US police officer who was fired after shooting dead an unarmed man was temporarily rehired so he could apply for a pension, local media report.

Warning, don't watch my OP webm if you don't want bad vibes. The man behind the gun was fired from the Mesa PD and later acquitted of murder charges. He was then re-hired for a period of 42 days so that he could submit an application for medical retirement based on accidental disability, namely PTSD from the murder in webm related, thereby qualifying him for a lifetime monthly pension if approved.

As a resident of Arizona this case shocked me, as did the footage, and as soon as this scumbag's pic popped up in the news I recognized him. It was in fact the OP image I used when I made the original thread about this incident.

It just goes to show that once again the rules do not apply to those with power, or those they favor.

Truly disgusting and abhorrent. I am very upset by this.

Bernie laid out the details for the most comprehensive plan yet to legalise weed and end the drug war. Plans include:
>legalize marijuana within 100 days of taking office
>nominate AG and HHS secretary who will work to end drug war
>vacate and expunge all past marijuana-related convictions, including those still in prison
>protect marijuana industry from being controlled by big corporations
>incentivize nonprofits
>institute market share caps to prevent consolidation and monopolization
>invest profits into communities hit hardest by drug war

The DNC still has too many grouchy old fucks in it so they are going to cheat Bernie again so that they have a mainline corporate shill like that senile fuck Biden. 100% gonna see CNN give Biden the debate questions again, the DNC hire a Debbie Wasserman-Schultz again, fix the DNC again, and lose to Trump again. In the meantime, Ginsburg is going to kick the bucket and so might Breyer both being in their 80's.

This next election if it goes to Trump could easily mean a Supreme Court that is 7-2 right wing and left wing respectively.

I agree 1000%. People in Silicon valley are absolute worst sort of Capitalist scum imaginable. Silicon Valley is people like Bezos. They deserve being violent purges. Thing is, companies like Alphabet get it, alphabet agency huh get it? fuck man, is federal LEO and spook sense of humour lame are themselves some of worst possible things to happen to humanity. It is ensuring the new Totalist State under Capitalist hegemony and all is part of military industrial intelligence complex.

>While construction salaries are decent

Ha, that'd be a good joke but sadly it hits too close to home. I make fucking nothing and can run dozens of different kinds of heavy equipment, drive loaded tractor trailers carrying oversized loads, and fix nearly anything on a job site including structural welding and I make 15 fucking dollars an hour with no benefits or time off right outside a major fucking city. Get a taste of the real world for once.

Let me say it again, CONSTRUCTION FUCKING SUCKS! Get a fucking college education, don't smoke dope and drop out of school, and get a white collar job. That is the best life advice I can give anyone. I bought into the "noble tradesman" meme and didn't go to college thinking I would make bank in dying trades. They're fucking dying because they are bullshit. It'd be easy to rhyme rob and steal than fuck around with braindead drunks and junkies who steal your shit while you work or nearly get you killed while Mr. Foreman sits the truck and sleeps in air conditioning only to stroll around and bust your balls for no fucking reason. Fuck construction and trucking and welding and every other trade. It was all a lie.


And to your later point, most everything across the US is moving towards a larger subscription service because people who buy shit and keep it are the enemies now. We've evolved and found that making people not only buy something and then keep paying for it is the best way to extract profits. Farm equipment has gone this way, you spend 300k for a tractor and then spend tens of thousands fixing simple shit since it is all DRM soft-locked. Textiles have gone this way, anything bigger than a Singer sewing machine granny had is leased. Car have went to this model, you have loss leaders in the actual sales of small cars but then turn 50 and 100k dollar pick up trucks but then murder both consumers on repairs. For example, on a many GM vehicles you have to drop the entire fucking engine to change spark plugs or remove an entire row of seating to swap the battery. In my industry, Caterpillar leases nearly all of their machines that are moderately new and then the old machines they jerk you around, treat you like shit, scoff and finally after hours of phone time offer you parts for fucking astronomical prices. Video games are little more than RNG gambling and a money siphon.

Follow some of the 2030 vehicle companies profit projection models, Ford is looking to turn the automobile industry into a live subscription service where you don't own any single vehicle, they all just buzz around autonomously like drones and you get a random car like Byrd scooters when you need one.

>Literally everything is going to a model where you buy in for a retarded price tag and then have to keep paying for the luxury of using what you fucking bought. Capitalism is exceptionally efficient in making the most diabolical way of siphoning money away from the consumer as quickly as possible. And the consumer fucktards are too god damn complacent to fight it, probably because along with the models is endless propaganda to get you to buy into the shit. I can't count the number of times I've called people out on their mindless consumerist horseshit and then they've fought tooth and nail to reject fiscal sense and responsibility. Just stop fucking buying shit from shitheads.

It is like some insane national Stockholm syndrome with everyone's wallets.

And again, fuck construction and trades in general.

I have previously posted about how this would make a great public transport system when you have a full self driving network. Such a network is a natural monopoly due to the decision making and planning involved, it's safer and more effective if it knows how every other vehicle will behave.

But we will get a private version that costs more, has to go slower and still has many more accidents.

yeah i agree now, i mean at this point this is entering YouTube atheist dunking on creationists/flat earthers/truthers territory

Nothing will be accomplished, it doesn't make you look smart to argue with dumb people. There's no honest misunderstanding here or some sort of dialectic to synthesize, just like creationism, flat earth, or any other kind of religious lunacy. The facts are clearly laid out, you can't make people see it, you just have to fight misinformation at the source, which thankfully our educational system has been and continues to be at least moderately successful at this according to research

https://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2019/01/17/generation-z-looks-a-lot-like-millennials-on-key-social-and-political-issues/

and it doesn't matter that some people might answer how they're "supposed" to instead of what they think, the fact that they aren't even comfortable admitting prejudice on an anonymous survey I think is really telling of how our culture is shifting as a whole

Misinformation on social media will be the death of us though if the companies aren't broken up, regulated, and nationalized though, we've far from won but it's a promising start

http://www.milwaukeeindependent.com/syndicated/afghanistan-papers-new-investigation-reveals-public-deception-campaign-u-s-officials/
>A major “Washington Post” investigation released on December 9 is a confirmation of the peace movement’s message that “there’s no military solution in Afghanistan.”

>That assessment is according to Paul Kawika Martin, senior director of policy and political affairs at Peace Action, replying to The Afghanistan Papers. The report exposes how top officials spanning the George W. Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations waged a deliberate misinformation campaign to conceal the total failures of the 18-year war in Afghanistan.

>The bombshell from investigative reporter Craig Whitlock “broadly resembles the Pentagon Papers,” and it is based on over 2,000 pages of notes from interviews with a federal agency that “bring into sharp relief the core failings of the war that persist to this day” and belie comments by officials “who assured Americans year after year” of progress made in the war.

>The paper obtained the cache of documents following a legal battle that lasted three years and included two lawsuits. The documents came out of a project from the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), an agency now headed by Obama-appointee John Sopko. That project, entitled Lessons Learned, was meant to assess “the U.S. reconstruction experience in Afghanistan.”

>They revealed that officials continually misled the public about the war’s success, there was no strategy, their efforts fueled corruption, and the U.S. was clearly losing ground as well as tens of thousands of lives and at least $1 trillion.

>The trove includes transcripts and notes from over 400 interviewers between 2014 and 2018. SIGAR blacked out names of roughly 85 percent of interviewees.

>“It was impossible to create good metrics” about the troop surge, one unnamed senior National Security Council official said in a 2016 interview. “We tried using troop numbers trained, violence levels, control of territory and none of it painted an accurate picture.” They added, “The metrics were always manipulated for the duration of the war.”

>Ryan Crocker, who was the top U.S. diplomat in Kabul from 2011 to 2012, said in a 2016 interview, “Our biggest single project, sadly and inadvertently, of course, may have been the development of mass corruption.”
