    PMSL@ FB's Burmese to English translation of Xi Jinping: Mr Shithole. Oops
  2. I figure any incursion on personal liberty should require some pretty strenuous justification. There's way too much overreach when it comes to individuals and their personal business. But on the other hand, I can't see how anything approaching an ideal society can ignore the prime directive of sustainability. Or how justice can exist without a system limiting the power of groups and individuals. Of course, some wackos will tell you that's fucken totalitarianism...

    What a joke

    Hands up if you ever thought Trump, or for that matter, those intellectually bankrupt scumbags, the GOP, are worth a damn. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/jan/20/government-shutdown-trump-tax-cuts-trumponomics

    So now the IMF is concerned about wealth disparity... That's pretty cute, after all those decades of enforcing neoliberal policies. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/jan/17/head-of-imf-says-global-economy-risks-return-of-great-depression As Piketty incontrovertibly demonstrated, since R>G, governments not in the business of at least a minimum degree of downwards wealth redistribution are in the business of upwards wealth redistribution. Anywhere the trickle-down con is still in force, we have active upwards wealth redistribution on top of the uncorrected background vampirism. It's a rent-seeker's paradise all over. Decades of bleeding populaces dry, yet the obvious consequence comes as a surprise to so many... I suppose that's what you get for using a fantasy in place of an attempt to actually model reality.
  5. I'm not sure I follow - why would not using social media preclude anyone from a regular diet of quality journalism (which would ensure at least a passing familiarity with that epic scandal)? I'm inclined to think that folks lapping up the corporate propaganda that passes for journalism in much of the mainstream media are more likely to be unaware of it... That factor might be more relevant

    There's a sort of poetry to it that you tend to only find in fiction. It's wild.

    What a joke

    I wonder which bit of 'this user has you on ignore' is too difficult to process. I guess folks who share Trump's NPD couldn't grok it

    What's on your mind?

    PMSL at these turkeys And Jacob Cutler, another member of the group Arpaio organized to "save our kids," has been charged with domestic violence, according to CBS: And what if the Phoenix-area community doesn't want a poorly vetted group that has included child-sex offenders and violent abusers among its ranks hanging around their kids' schools? Too bad, says Sheriff Joe. "It doesn't matter whether they like it or don't," he told ABC News. "I'm still going to do it. I can't imagine criticism coming when they're given free protection." And, because it's Arpaio, the story just keeps getting weirder. The sheriff hired washed-up action hack Steven Seagal to provide weapons training to his crew. In a press conference on Saturday, Seagal defended his qualifications to a room of baffled reporters: "I've put hundreds of thousands if not millions of hours into my weapons training," adding he would do "anything" to protect Arizona's children. "They are our most precious asset," he said. "They are our treasures and we have to protect them." Reality seems to be ripping off South Park episodes...

    Look at this shit. Just look at it. Who knows where to start with you. Forget it

    rude bastards. Must be a full moon.

    Deskside punching bag?
  16. Lol. That 'other nefarious shite' is what I was alluding to. You know, interfering with fucken elections. Mostly via very tightly targeted political ads, almost 100% fake news. They were able to fork out such blatant bullshit because they knew their audience so well.

    A) It was quite obviously part satirical comment, part prediction. Did you miss that or are you just feigning? Two, kindly back that shit up. What "fake news" do I allegedly perpetuate? 0011: This sort of stupid belligerence is why I find you crazy and unlikable.

    What's on your mind?

    Wouldn't be surprised in the slightest. I can't remember enough right now to google it up, but there was that gun-totin' sheriff with the thing for underage girls who Trump and most Republicans were totally fine about, and that other gun-totin' sheriff who ran a concentration camp, who Trump pardoned after the cunt was busted for defying a court order telling him to stop running a concentration camp... You should see how many different results you get if you search Trump paedophile.
  19. I guess you missed the whole Cambridge Analytica thing...

    What's on your mind?

    To be pardoned by Trump
  21. I think that's what I mean, but I could be wrong - the issue I'm having is a cheap telly that often drops out for a few seconds if someone turns on a kettle or something... All I really need is a UPS that only needs to do its thing for a second or two. Is that a thing?

    Some folks hate on the Guardian. That's as it should be. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jan/14/blanket-secrecy-surrounds-australian-weapons-sales-to-countries-accused-of-war-crimes

    Guys, it's ok. We have a safe space

    Right wing douchebags are the real snowflakes. Folks angling for PC are, on the whole, merely trying for a minimum level of respect for everyone. While the peeps who've historically enjoyed cultural dominance are crying about fucken white genocide when they've just been asked to move over a bit to make some room. Piss-ant whiny little fucken children. Can't go five fucken minutes without making up bullshit reductio ad absurdums and trying to shut down reasonable debate with their pissy tantrums.

    Pretty hard to tempt Murphy with piddling stuff like washing and houses when he's got the whole country to fuck...
