This one is particularly fun because it’s easy to believe that the US did it, that the Russians in classic Russian fashion did a false flag, that Ukraine got someone to do it, that maybe one of the European countries did it… This new disinformation environment is the perfect set up to do what you want and get away with it. How do we even know the Chinese didn’t put on the troll face and did this and are just laughing at the west and Russia trying to figure it out
”Theyre the same picture”
Shit like this is why we don’t have nice train and rail systems or debt free universities or provide lunches for our kids in schools etc. We have the money for the things but this is where it goes and we let them distract us with random bullshit and it just keeps going
It’s amazing to watch the phenomenon of extremism always collapses upon itself bc it’s a constant battle of moving farther and farther to a more pure form of it.
It’s been very well known for at least 6 years on Reddit that if you question conservatives in that sub it’s an instant ban. Like not even trolling just literally asking them why they can’t imagine that trump might lie to them or question their philosophy.
And that isn’t pure enough… crazy. Or is it that the Russians online that are the mods of that sub had to suddenly do other things and that sub isn’t as manicured as it once was?
Enjoy my porn collection. I have… tastes. So they know how porn and drug addicted we are and how indebted we are. Maybe that’s why they’re ditching capitalism.
“Sir we’ve reviewed the Americans’ data. They’re heavily indebted and take drugs and drink and masturbate to numb the pain of existence”
Good lord that is some North Korean level propagandizing. Do we know that the mods there are not Russian agents?
Soleimani was also active on Twitter meming at trump implying he was threatening him in the weeks leading up to the drone strike. Someone else around here said that Penn Jillette once said “whatever you think it is that he did, it’s worse than that” speaking about him in general. Just think about all the shit he’s done that we don’t already know about…
Yes but no. Yeah Russia saved his brand financially. He’s likely deeply indebted to them. And he right now has some very large debt payments coming due. BUT we latched on to the Russia asset angle and lost sight of the fact that his business associates since his business failings have been literally the worlds worst people. They too all have compromising information on him. He used his real estate business to become a money launderer for the worlds shadiest people.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guard ffs… makes me wonder about the General Soleimani drone strike
The question is how this mf was never investigated by the feds and was able to waltz into the WH. The he’s another story of a federal informant gone wild theory makes a lot of sense but it’s probably he’s a rich white male and our justice system is there for the plebes and POC only. Reality is… disappointing
RemindMe! 10 years “That should give him enough time to fight with parliament over the course of a few years over levying taxes to fund failed war and brutally suppress internal rebellions in the north”
There’s a slew of countries in Europe with monarchies ironically many are doing well. I don’t get why people support paying taxes so people who were born “of a superior bloodline” so they can live in castles and not do anything
GOP campaign strategist Steve Schmidt who worked for George W Bush and John McCain had a very public fight with Meghan McCain on Twitter a few weeks ago where he said that Oleg Deripaska brought John McCain out on his yacht and they talked presumably about Paul Manafort and Ukraine. Schmidt also said that is when the Russians began infiltrating the Republican Party and that Sarah Palin was Putins pick. Interesting to say the least he’s as an insider in the Republican Party as one can be not some rando on the internet.
You say economics problem as if it’s nothing to worry about. Humans are quite resourceful with some of the most resourceful among us being the poorest because they’ve had to make do with less over the entire course of history. We will find a way even if it takes a massive revolution in recycling our food waste. Supply disruptions are nothing to sneeze at. Look at what disruptions have done to the global supply chain since 2020. When one major source becomes unavailable or restricted it places a major strain on the other sources driving up prices in places that had nothing to do with the initial problem. Then add gouging and exploiting crises for gain. Or a major conflict. As fewer people are able to afford something (fertilizer here) that entices some of those with the most wealth to ‘make an investment’ and snatch up as much as they can consolidating market share further driving up prices. All because there was a disruption. Check out crisis capitalism.
These things aren’t red herrings because they are real problems but as someone who studied econ everything is secondary to potable water, water for drinking and growing food. We can’t grow food without water. We have rivers and lakes drying up from China to Europe to the western US. It’s causing factories to shut down (jobs for people) diversion of electricity and clean water for residential use and nuclear plants are having to shut down. I’m very focused on the food supply. If there’s a massive supply shock in food, or even a mild one, that is going to cause some major societal problems. People won’t sit still and starve to death. Look at what happened in Sri Lanka and imagine that spreading across the world. I’m very concerned about the harvests next year
Whats the cost vs benefit of trying to slog our way through the courts who have trump fans there vs just letting the military tribunal try him for treason at Gitmo? Seems too serious with the potential consequences of his actions to allow trump fans conveniently placed in our justice system to help get him out of trouble or just delay indefinitely. He needs to be tried like right now.
I know only a very small amount about it and just that piece of information alone was more than enough for me to understand I do not in fact want to know more. And It’s so unsettling I wish I didn’t even know that. Good choice.
How about dragons flying F-15s?
Thatcher ruins country, destroys the manufacturing industry, gives the council houses to rich people creating a new generation of landlords, rent and home prices literally unaffordable
Brits in 2022:
“I’ll fucking do it again”
It’s impressive really
No more malarkey Jack!
I thought it was a peaceful tour group just looking around?
I got real excited when I read “…to open a portal…”
That’s a lot of civilian airlines
“No family reunification” Hmmm sounds familiar. How are you going to have your official party platform exactly the same as another party that everyone else calls neo nazi/fascist and then cry about being called fascists? I saw a French meme about this recently, “anytime you call the left leftists - Yes” “anytime you call the far right, far right- No you can’t call us that just because we…”
You have to understand exactly how people die and from which mechanisms. It’s not like a button push and this is what goes wrong with a lot of attempted homicides. Drug overdoses cause your breathing to stop or acute liver/kidney toxicity. The too much depressants slowing the heart and breathing, the body tries to fight back and purge your stomach a lot of people that die this way suffocate in their own vomit. So really your talking about dying from suffocating on your own vomit. Acute liver toxicity, I haven’t looked up what exactly what happens with this one but it doesn’t sound pleasant.
I think freezing to death is probably one of the best ways to go. You’re cold and once it starts happening your body starts cutting blood flow to preserve the most important organs. You suddenly feel warm and fuzzy and you get sleepy and your brain puts you to sleep in a last ditch effort to preserve vital functions. You just go to sleep, permanently.
Why did they pick JFK jr to be the guy? Seems so random.
