This summer has just been the worst. Super humid all throughout, and somehow always the highest temperature and humidity during the week (when I'm walking to work, so I'm soaked when I get here), then cold and either overcast yet still humid, or just rainy on weekends, when I'd actually be able to go somewhere and cool off.

We will soon all miss the days where american companys were pro american values and pro american bill of rights.

Its a race to the bottom and not in a good way.

Its open borders but not open internet. got to love the way lefties think. mainly because its all about votes, power and destroying america. illegal aliens good, non leftist controlled speech bad.

Though in this instance its supposedly "anti-trump" rhetoric. For the most part its leftists who dont give a flying fart about the constitution and hate the USA who are causing most of the problems. even in this referenced article the focus at the beginning is on "extremists" who no doubt this leftist author thinks are only people on the non Marxist side of the fence.

anything a leftist does is perfectly excused because everyone who is not a leftist is a "nazi racist".

look into the southern poverty law center and soros funded internet mobs and how they are a direct attack on Americans freedom.


Dude, you literally railed AGAINST open internet with Net Neutrality. You personally. You, as in the guy posting here, kept calling an open internet "trash," and yet now you want it because Alex Jones was banned for violating rules by harassing the parents of dead children?

The only people being banned are harassers, not "conservatives," unless those are one and the same. Weirdly, to some of you, they are.

Dude, everything you just posted is alt-right. It's literal alt-right bedrock. It's in the alt-right Bible.

You're alt-right. Next, you'll be complaining about antifa. You're defending Sargon and Peterson - that's de facto alt-right.

Or a populace that takes control and thinks a 227 year old law is responsible for needless deaths.

I'm curious, the founders considered this well, what would you change and why?

"A well regulated militia": In working order, able bodied men trained in the use of modern weapons.

You blame the weapons, I blame the governments.

I mean, for one, they had no clue what the future of weaponry was. They neither foresaw automatic weapons, or really any weapon that would let an individual mow down 58 people from a hotel room, nor did they see advancements in government technology. You tell me what a well regulated militia of civilians with AR-15s will do against the modern US military with tanks and, predominantly, unmanned drones that can take you out without you having a clue you're being targeted, all without having a single human being within 1000 miles of you.

Furthermore, it's pretty vague, no? What does "well regulated" mean? Does it mean the government is regulating private militias? State government? Some other body? And how does it work? In our military, weapons are usually kept in lockers, does this mean our towns should hold everyone's guns in a locker in case they're needed? Does any of this have any bearing on the right to carry in public, or conceal and carry?

Ad hominem fallacy, not addressing subject.

Yet you think not calling everyone a pedo is letting MSNBC tell you what to think.


You get that you're not really showing off any intelligence with your posting here, right? And not making coherent arguments? Perhaps you're an intelligent guy who thinks deeply about things, but you come across as a guy with an axe to grind against society, for reasons unknown, who likes to throw things together even when they have nothing to do with one another.

If you're interested in Sargon, who has definitely harassed people, to the point that even Joe Rogan called him out on it, and Jordan Peterson, who isn't using science but hiding racism behind pseudo-science, sorry, you're not liberal. You're being indoctrinated into the alt right. This is how it starts. Those idiots sound reasonable via video, but if you stop and think you realize they're lunatics. They're race baiting and hiding white nationalism and dated heteronormatism behind flawed science.

It's no coincidence they're poster speakers for the alt right and incels. That their audience is almost entirely undersexed, undereducated, underemployed white males. They're gateway alt right. They say the same as the rest, but try to tone down their rhetoric. The media didn't just decide these guys have a rotten message - their message is rotten. I just don't get how someone can say "I'm a liberal, but that Jordan Peterson guy is a-ok. Life really was better with women barefoot in the kitchen! "

Chicago is actually pretty far from the top of the list of gun crime per capita.

In any case, that guy just listed where 80% of our population lives.

Jordan Peterson is a lunatic, and absolutely fuels hate speech. He's argued that women were never oppressed in history, that there's no such thing as Islamophobia because it's rational to discriminate against Muslims, that the bedrock of a decent society is a heteronormative two-parent family, etc. None of this is hate speech itself, but it absolutely fuels it. It gets quoted in hate speech, it has led to violence against his critics by those turning it towards hate speech, and he knows this. He's careful about what he says to walk a line but give ammunition. He's a horrid person.

Also, c'mon, "REEEE." Are you a GamerGater? Will you call everyone "cucks" next? As pointed out, you're also focusing solely on the extremes. Stop reading TumblrInAction and focus on what's actually happening in society, not some fringe existing just on Twitter.

False.

https://n.pr/2o4lUVM

Exception, not rule. And I don't think we're comparable to Brazil in many ways other than gun deaths.

Here are the countries of the world listed by amount of gun deaths per 100,000:
Honduras
Venezuela
El Salvador
Swaziland
Guatemala
Jamaica
Brazil
Colombia
Panama
The United States
Uruguay
Montenegro
Philipines
South Africa
Paraguay
Mexico
Argentina
Barbados
Costa Rica
Peru
Nicaragua
Serbia
Finland


Do you see how high we are? And how far down we need to go in order to reach another nation with comparable institutions to ours?

I think rape jokes are awful and really just dumb to make. I've said it to some of the people here that routinely make them.

However, he made these quite some time before Disney hired him. He apologized for them before Disney hired him. This wasn't a Roseanne situation where he made them while under contract, defended them repeatedly, and had none of his coworkers stick up for him. He made them a long time ago, disavowed them and said he felt they were inexcusable and he was embarrassed about who he was when he made them, and virtually all of those working with him came out and said he'd changed from then and it wasn't representative of who he was today.

If we don't let people have jobs after they repent and grow, we can be in trouble. How people handle things from the past matter, as does who sticks up for them.

We'll see what this means for the likes of Deadpool, which certainly loves its rape jokes but is now a Disney property (keep in mind, also marketed to a slightly different audience than GotG.)

Also interesting that Disney has no issue working with Rob Lowe today, a man once found himself in the center of a sex scandal for having sex with a 16 year old.

The TV thing doesn't surprise me much. My parents watch hours. They're unemployed, but TV is just something always on for them. Which means they're constantly telling me what shows they love and asking me if I watch them (given that they're retired, they watch very different stuff than I do. That generation basically understands cop shows/movies, and that's about it.)

My girlfriend and I watch next to none. We'll put something on when we eat - may be something streaming, but is rarely live TV. Live TV doesn't operate around our schedule making it unappealing. If I finish cooking dinner at 8:17, are we supposed to wait 13 minutes for something to start? We generally watch 30 minutes of something, so waiting 13 minutes would already mean we'd have to increase our viewing 50% to see something in its entirety.

We rarely watch hour long shows because we don't want to sit on the couch silently for 60 minutes. We'll do a 30 minute show, and sometimes go 2 or 3, but it allows us to control our time better. Sometimes we don't want another 30 minutes and end up watching 10 minutes of puppies trying to go down the stairs for the first time on Youtube. But, in total, we're usually under an hour a day of any video time.

I mean, it has to be bullet-spongy, right? It's an RPG. You take down numbers. Some guys you fight are a Level 8 and you're a Level 7, so they take a lot of damage. Later, you may find them again when you're a Level 20 and kill them with one shot.

The autoaim gun doesn't bug me, either. They said it was the top tech in the world. Most of the time, you have a normal gun.

As for it feeling like any old action RPG, I mean, in video, The Witcher 3 looks like any old medieval action RPG. It's why it took me so long to play it. When you watch it, you see some gruff guy having stupid conversations (when you have no context) with dirty looking peasants about their lost pigs, then you see him rolling around with a sword in his hand, swiping at looters and casting spells at them. Didn't seem any different from a few billion other generic games of the type. You needed to spend some time in the world to see why it was so superior, but even then, it wasn't the mechanics, it was the polish on an ancient formula.

totally disagree with the temp ban on 3d printing gun parts. afaik you cannot 100% build a 3d printed gun from a 3d printer, there are essential parts that cannot be printed.

Some plans have a 6oz piece of steel, but that's solely due to regulations.
Other guns just have a small steel firing pin. The rest is 3D printed. That firing pin would be pretty easy to sneak past any security.

I'll pass on all the NC-17 garbage. It doesn't add to the unfolding story. Its only purpose is to shock the senses in variety of ways.

The complaint people had about GoT, though, was that those scenes added critical information to the unfolding story. Exposition is generally flashbacks, which can be expensive, or it's dialogue, which is boring. HBO, in the first seasons, put that dialogue into brothel scenes, so you had naked women as you got some rundown on a huge amount of background.

If you need a break from how depressing this all is, you can take your mind off of it by laughing at Milo crying about being a victim while claiming he's not making himself a victim while not realizing that being treated like an asshole while acting like an asshole to the point that you brag about being an asshole isn't unfair. Bonus points for him comparing himself favorably to Mike "No such thing as date rape" Cernovich and Alex "Gay Frogs" Jones.

This is a post in response to people being angry that he took their money to fund monthly videos but, rather than posting videos, he's posting $7.5k dinner bills. Instead of apologizing, he tells them that he's given up so much and it was all for them, not for him, everything he's done was for them. Like take their money and not give anything back. That was a sacrifice he made.

I know it's off-topic, but this kind of "misery" helps cheer me up and distract from the actual misery of this topic's event.
