Double posting again. My bad.
You would be able to see most of your family, however you need a passpport. And he wouldn't be "closing the borders" he would be building a wall to keep people from getting here illegally. He wants to boost LEGAL immigration.

Also Bush wouldn't be bad. He stands apart from his dad and brother and overall helped Florida. The only thing bad about him is that he stands for common core.

its not just Paris, all over France, hostages are being held, at least 26 dead.

In Lebanon, suicide bombings, about 30 people were killed.

In Baghdad at least 18 people have been killed, 40 people wounded at a suicide bombing at a funeral.

And meanwhile, an extremely powerful 7.0 magnitude earthquake has struck the coast of Japan, a tsunami warning has been issued.

I'm not religious, but my heart is with every single one of these countries.

Philippines


Typhoon Lando was a recent storm that hit the Philippines and gave a ton of damage, especially to the Aurora region. A lot died, a lot still missing! Worst part is, a lot of electrical wires tumbled down and a lot of houses had no electricity. Due to corrput government officials, there are still people who aren't safe.


An earthquake is about to come according to professionals in the Philippines. Recently, minor earthquakes have been hitting the Philippines, mostly between 4.0 - 5.2 and the only major one came from 2013. The 7.2 earthquake in Bohol and Cebu. Until now, remarkable places are still broken, families still have no homes and some are still missing. In a prediction, NCR (National Capital Region) will have an approximate 7.2 earthquake anytime. Let's all hope it won't be too much.


It's been 2 years since Typhoon Yolanda/Hayan hit the Philippines, but people are still starving. In a news article last September, the plan to help the victims was an EPIC FAIL. The person who took in charge of the donations didn't give the food instantly, so all the donations were expired and rotten. The house plan for Yolanda victims worked, but it was insufficient for the victims and many are still homeless. As of date, there hasn't been news but people are still missing, starving, dying, homeless, and suffering

So far only France has declared war against ISIS. The US may or may not get involved with the war. Many US politicians are saying we should go to war against ISIS, but congress (who gets the final say on going to war) hasn't voted on the issue yet. At this point a third world war is possible, but unlikely.

Would you guys make this topic if the same thing happened in Pakistan or Afghanistan? Would people set the Pakistani flag as their profiles and stuff? Then why are you all being so paranoid over one small attack in Paris? All of us were snoring during that attack in that school of Peshwar. Did we care about those innocent children who died that day? These deaths are common in the Middle-east. How many of us care for them? Huh?

I am still mad over the fact that hardly anyone noticed the murder of about 180 CHILDREN in APS school in Pakistan. Firstly, children died. Secondly, the casualties were more than the Paris incident. Not to say that I don't condemn Paris Attacks, but this is pure hypocrisy.

And nobody even realizes that the Taliban just has a major victory.

OK, the reason Paris is getting the media and not other countries is not because it's "developed" or "better than the other countries", it's because most people tend to forget what happens in the countries or the media misses out, and because the attacks happened so fast in the span of a few hours it's most likely to happen. Also, there are more reporters in Paris, making it get to the media quicker.

Also, Israel is not gnocchi. They are a country too. Besides, without Israel, a major religion would not exist and there wouldn't be a major part of the history we have today.

Turning a blind eye and "missing"the issue by the media has a huge difference, and I am no ready to believe in this lie yet that the media misses out every single frickking issue from the less developed country.

It's more of an issue about bias in the media rather than prejudice. There are many forms of bias in the media, and one of them is the omission of stories. If an issue doesn't fit with the agenda of a news source than it won't be reported on that particular source. The media are bias because many news sources are targeted towards a certain group of people, and reporting news that particular group of people want to hear is how the media maximizes their profit. It's an issue of business/profit, not prejudice.

Title: Re: 2016 US Election
Post by: AskJoe on December 08, 2015, 05:24:57 PM
I agree. Thankfully he won't be able to "ban all muslims", since it would be a violation of the first amendment, "Freedom of speech, religion, press, and right to assemble and petition the government", so the US Supreme Court would rule such action unconstitutional. If he wanted to take such drastic action he would have to get a new constitutional amendment passed which requires a 2/3 majority vote in both houses of congress, and ratification by 3/4 of the states, and there's no way that would happen. Hopefully this makes people realize why Trump shouldn't be president.

- Considers freeing the markets a top priority
- Wants to lower taxes and make them flat
- Supports abolition of minimum wage
- Supports the USA PATRIOT Act
- Supports looser gun regulations
- Was arguably the leader of the 2013 government shutdown
- Is even more conservative than Trump on immigration
- Believes all LGBT same sex marriage and civil unions should be banned
- Supports Kim Davis' blatant ignorance of the law heavily
- Is against net neutrality
- Compared environmental activists to flat-earthers
- Has received MILLIONS of dollars in donations from oil and gas industries
- Has created a plan to "carpet bomb [ISIS] into oblivion".

Even if he were to get voted in, he's from Canada. He cannot be elected President.

Not supporting LGBT is fine as a personal opinion, but discriminating them like this is to much.

New poll up. And here's a nice little summary of Huntsman's political views:

Huntsman is known for a business friendly, conservative fiscal policy with tax cuts and a flat tax rate. Huntsman also plans to eliminate corporate taxation on overseas corporations and reduce the corporations tax to 25%. The Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank, praised Huntsman's economic policies.

Although Huntsman is pro-life, as expected from a governor of Utah, he has expressed major support for same-sex marriage.

Huntsman believes in alternative energy and stopping greenhouse gas pollution. He also defended evolution and global warming against comments by such conservative governors as Rick Perry.

Huntsman believes that an alliance with China and diplomatic talks between the USA, China, and North Korea will end the bomb threat. Huntsman also supports Israel.

Huntsman believes border security is needed, but also believes that the country needs more legal immigration and supports the DREAM Act, as well as public college and healthcare for immigrants.

Donald Trump wants to ban Santa Claus from entering the country. "This guy flies into our airspace and Obama does nothing," he shouted down the phone to me. "He's a foreigner, we know nothing about him -- no-thing -- and his elves are stealing jobs from American workers. We're gonna build a wall around the North Pole and it's gonna be huge. Huuuuge."

Trump honestly can't be president. When a new president is inaugurated they most agree to protect the integrity of the constitution, which Trump can do truthfully. His proposed actions as presidents such as his plan to "build a wall" or to "ban all muslims" are violations of the 14th and 1st amendment respectively.

It's probably going to be Bernie vs. Trump in my opinion. If this is true, Bernie will probably win.

This is not meant to be a joke.
I am guessing almost all, or all, of you get to school in a "normal" way. You walk. You ride a bus, or drive there. But some kids walk to school in dangerous ways. Look at these kids going to school in Sumatra:

(https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/09/3c/79/093c795d6642dc67196e14d6bd77b8f6.jpg)

This is horrible. I just want everyone to know that stuff like this exists.


Title: Re: Meanwhile in Sumatra...
Post by: Abu on February 23, 2016, 05:26:16 PM
Exactly. And what happens if they fall? Even if they can swim that water is dirty, with infections. And it has dangerous animals in it. And from the jungle, well it's a large fall. And once again, dangerous animals.

And they do this all for SCHOOL. This is how bad kids want to learn in developing countries. While we sit here (and this includes me too) just going like "ugh school is boring".


Title: The Sentinelese People (and other strange places)
Post by: Abu on February 23, 2016, 05:44:25 PM
You think all of the world is discovered. No, not really...
Meet the Sentinelese. First of all, they know there is a world outside of their island. As do many of the "undiscovered people". But they choose to stay there. Just clearing that up. They live on Sentinel Island in the Andaman Island chain, administered by India.

Now, these people are believed to have been descended from the very first people to leave Africa thousand of thousands of years ago. Their culture is barely documented for a reason; they keep firing arrows at people who come close to the island. And they have killed people. In 2006, two fishermen's boats strayed close to the island. The Sentinelese killed them and buried them in shallow graves. A documentary was once made about these types of people. Except when they tried to go to this island, the director had an 8-foot arrow shot through his left thigh. They do not want to be contacted by us. This is clear.

(http://northsentinelisland.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/sentinelese-helicopter-meeting.jpg)

They have secrets we don't know. Their language is extremely unintelligible with any of the languages of other Andaman tribes that have since been shown the modern world. They appear to have been living on their island without outside contact (although it is obvious they know there is a world outside of them) for thousands of years. They can run extremely fast, there is a video somewhere of people trying to contact them. They still live an active lifestyle, and their speed might be compared to an Olympic runner. And...they survived the 2004 Christmas Eve Tsunami in South Asia. Whereas places such as Sri Lanka were devastated without even being in the main path of the tsunami, the Sentinel Island was in the direct path of the tsunami. When a helicopter passed by the island in the aftermath to check on them, they were greeted by a barrage of arrows. They were obviously alive and well. If only we knew how...

(http://northsentinelisland.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/North-Sentinel-Island.jpg)

In the late 20'th century the Indian government funded many expeditions to their island. After the first few which ended horribly (in one of them, they threw gifts to the island which were buried as their boats were shot repeatedly with arrows), the later few were a bit more friendly. When the islanders saw them coming in these later ones, the men simply aimed arrows and waited while people threw gifts such as fish, coconuts and metal at them. Women and children would excitedly run out and collect these gifts, but after time passed they would become more wary and the men would start shooting arrows without a head, as if a warning to say "your time is up".

(https://41.media.tumblr.com/9106275e6998e0e8dd645f0d4c3d8728/tumblr_mg32i0n1tf1qatg4xo1_500.jpg)

The Sentinelese do not want to be touched obviously. But is this a good thing? In previous cases, uncontacted people were decimated by diseases they never even knew existed. Their lives could change for the worse as they realize that they can never go back to a simple lifestyle of hunt, eat, gather, build, sleep (and repeat). They probably don't even know what India is. But one day, with the rising sea levels, we may have to find a way to get them off the island. The island is completely untouched by modern man. This is how our world looked like before civilization:

u guys only discuss the idiotic republicans...
Even though that is not true, the chances of a Republican president are currently higher than a Democrat president. It is interesting to see who will get the nomination since it has been hazy since the beginning (although now it's starting to look like Trump will get it). Since the beginning it has looked like Hillary will win the Democrat nomination.

Trump has donated to the Clinton Foundation before. He also used to support abortion and still supports Planned Parenthood (minus the abortions). I think he used to support gay marriage..not sure though. I bet he's only running as a republican cause he knows there's a better chance of winning.


Title: Re: 2016 US Election
Post by: AskJoe on March 20, 2016, 01:08:20 PM
u guys only discuss the idiotic republicans...
Our next president will likely be a republican president, since our current president is a democrat, so the republican primaries are more important than the democratic primaries. Clinton is almost guaranteed to win the democratic primary. The republican primaries are less clear on who will win. In fact with each primary it seems more and more like the GOP primary will come down to a runoff election between the top two candidates. Trump is predicted to win, but there is still a chance he may still lose.


Title: Re: 2016 US Election
Post by: AskJoe on March 20, 2016, 02:16:10 PM
In order to win Trump needs 53% of all remaining delegates, Cruz needs 78%, and Kasich needs 104%. Based on these statistics a runoff election between the top two candidates seems likely. In the democratic primary Clinton needs 34% of the remaining delegates, and Sanders needs 67%. Since Clinton is doing so well the democratic primary can be over as soon as next month. The GOP primary will last until the last day of the primaries in June, and will likely need a runoff election to determine the presidential nominee.


Title: Re: 2016 US Election
Post by: AskJoe on March 20, 2016, 02:37:19 PM
There are 6 winner take all states left in the GOP primary: Arizona, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, New Jersey and Delaware. Whoever wins in those states gets all the delegates for that state. If Trump wins the majority of the states he will probably win, if Cruz wins he will be competitive with Trump. If Kasich wins the majority of them, a runoff election would be almost guaranteed. The Arizona primary will be Tuesday, and it is a winner take all state, Cruz seems to be the favored candidate in southern states, so he will likely win in Arizona. Trump, would have the advantage for the remaining winner take all states.

Bernie Sanders has almost no chance of winning. In order to win the democratic primary he'll have to win 67% of the remaining delegates which likely won't happen.

He tells me that trump only says that to get the support of the dumb side of America, which is A LOT of people if u ask me, but it shoes that he is against illegal immigration and all...

Kasich has dropped out. Trump is now the only remaining candidate in the republican primary, and since he needs less than 100% of the remaining delegates, he now wins the entire primary automatically. He will likely be the republican nominee, but of course nothing is final until the presidential convention in July.

I don't support Trump or Clinton, and will refuse to vote for any one of them. I will most likely choose to vote for a third party candidate, exactly who that will be, I don't know at this point. Trump is racist, and I refuse to support a president who is racist. Along with his racist remarks he has proposed several suggestions that aren't just discriminatory, but also shows a lack of knowledge of the US constitution such as his proposal to ban Muslims, or to build a wall on the southern border to stop Mexican immigration. Sure none of these will happen due to the unconstitutional nature of the proposals, but that's not the point I'm trying to make. The point that I am trying to make is that Trump is racist and has shown a lack of responsibility in upholding the integrity of the US constitution, the document that would have kept America running since the birth of the nation for 240 years come July 4, 2016. Trump will not "make America great again", and is better off staying in business rather than going into politics. He is a businessman, not a politician. Which, along with telling it like it is, is the only reason Trump is so popular and managed to win the Republican primary.  Unfortunately, Clinton isn't much better, meaning our only hope is for a third party candidate to be elected to office. 4 or worse 8 years of Trump or Clinton wouldn't be good for America.

I don't support Trump or Clinton, and will refuse to vote for any one of them. I will most likely choose to vote for a third party candidate, exactly who that will be, I don't know at this point. Trump is racist, and I refuse to support a president who is racist. Along with his racist remarks he has proposed several suggestions that aren't just discriminatory, but also shows a lack of knowledge of the US constitution such as his proposal to ban Muslims, or to build a wall on the southern border to stop Mexican immigration. Sure none of these will happen due to the unconstitutional nature of the proposals, but that's not the point I'm trying to make. The point that I am trying to make is that Trump is racist and has shown a lack of responsibility in upholding the integrity of the US constitution, the document that would have kept America running since the birth of the nation for 240 years come July 4, 2016.

Trump is not racist at all. If he were, there wouldn't be people from all groups supporting him, especially the Hispanics. In fact, Trump is the main person who is getting the Hispanic vote. The crowds at Trump's rallies are enormous.

I know Trump is not perfect, but he is the only person who wants to put America first, which is what being the leader of a country is mainly about. A country has no obligation to take care of and protect anybody else, except for its citizens. It's constitutional and even an obligation for the US federal government to put the American citizens first, not illegal aliens. It is the taxpayers who pay the government's salary. The same applies for the governments of other countries.  

There is a difference between legal and illegal immigration. If somebody wants to become a citizen, they need to come in legally.  Originally, immigration was meant to bring in people who would benefit the host nation. A country is similar to a house in many ways. Would you let any random person come into your house?

Do you lock your doors at night, especially if you have a gate surrounding your house? That's how a border works for a country. A border for a country works the same way as a door does for a house. Open borders increase the chances of criminals coming into the country. Just as how an open door gives robbers easier access to a house.

It's not fair for people who become legal citizens the right way when illegal aliens are allowed to become citizens instantly just by coming in. Mexico is taking advantage of the open borders to dump their criminals into America because the Mexican government does not want to deal with them. When the criminals of a certain race cause trouble, it makes the honest and hard working people in the same race look bad. This will lead to real racism. Keeping out illegals is not racist at all. Illegal aliens can come from anywhere. They are not just Hispanics. If Asians were to come into the USA illegally and caused trouble, I would be in favour of deporting them, even if they share the same culture as me.

There is a wall on the south of Mexico. If people came into Mexico illegally, they would be imprisoned, especially if they caused trouble. China also has the "Great Wall of China".

Islam and Muslims are not a race. There are Muslims of all ethnicities, even ones with fair skin (example: Omar Mateen). Trump's proposal when it came to Muslims was a temporary ban until the government can figure out how to vet them properly.

The bottom line and truth is: Being allowed into a country is a privilege, not a right.

Several of the previous presidents have been career politicians. I'm afraid that career politicians can become out of touch with reality after a while. I'd rather not have another career politician running the country, especially not a criminal such as Hillary Clinton.

If anyone wants to talk about racist presidential candidates, the truly racist person running is Bernie Sanders. He said this comment about white people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6IlGoeDIUQ.
I couldn't believe what I heard. I still do not want to believe it...

Almost 117 years old, Emma Morano is an Italian women who is one of the 10 oldest living people in history and currently the oldest living person.

She was born in 1899 and is the last person. The next oldest person was born in 1900. It's so sad soon everyone born in the 1800's will be gone :'(

Revered by the Thai people, being their head of state for 70 years, he has overseen Thailand become a beautifully developed country.

He died peacefully after suffering

Give hope to the Thai people who have entered a year of nationwide mourning. Hundreds of thousands of which were wearing the lucky colour in Thai culture pink outside his hospital, awaiting for him to get better.

Do you really need a president that thinks like this though. The only good idea I've seen from Trump/Pence was repealing the Johnson amendment, which would give nonprofit organizations a say in political matters, without fear of losing their tax exemption status. Clinton is the less of the two evils, though that's still evil. I support neither Trump nor Clinton.

Clinton supports things like making all the social security numbers non-privatised.

She also supports a thing I forget the name of but it would make whites trying to get into university very tough.

But I don't like that he's racist, sexist and Islamophobic. He can't ban Muslims but he still has the hate.

The risk of something happening to Trump, and Pence becoming president, is much scarier than a Trump presidency.
The amount of electoral votes are proportional to the population IIRC
The number of electoral college votes in a state is equal to the number of representatives of congress (both house & senate) in that state.

Okay the only thing I like about Trump (which is a major one) is his America First policy. If anything, it means less interference of America in other countries, especially Middle Eastern ones that are in a bad shape thanks to Bush and then Obama. However, this is not on the poll...

See, the wall is a good idea in theory to prevent immigration, but it's going to be so expensive and resource wasting and time consuming...that the cons outweigh the pros.

1. Technically, the wall will actually range somewhere between a 15 foot wall and a heavily reinforced fence. He has just been exaggerating a little.

2. We already have around $20,000,000,000,000 in debt, and the interest rate is $3,000,000 per minute, so I don't think you can do too much more to it.

3. Trump is going to use the new Mexican tariffs to pay for the wall.

4. Do you think we'll just build a wall and let it sit, hoping that the Mexicans are too afraid to cross it? No! We will have guards protecting the border as well.

Overall, the wall is not as daunting as you might imagine.

Google always has one simple paragraph at the right. Or, if on phone, just read first paragraph of Wikipedia.

In this case:

"The Republic of Cyprus occupies the southern part of the island of Cyprus in the eastern Mediterranean. The island (and capital city Nicosia) is divided with Turkey to the north. Known for beaches, it also has a rugged interior with wine regions. Coastal Paphos is famed for its archaeological sites relating to the cult of Aphrodite, including ruins of palaces, tombs and mosaic-tiled villas."

Right
This island was owned by the British till 1950
Then Cypriots rebelled and they became independent in 1959
British were so angry that they designed plan Attila
A plan which had as a purpose Turkish invasion to the isle
On July of 1974 Turkish people invaded to the northern part with parachutes
From then
54% Cyprus
46% Turkish Cyprus

Title: Re: Manchester Concert Explosion
Post by: Faiz on May 23, 2017, 01:05:49 AM
Travel bans would not have stopped the spread of ISIS as they could just have come from the countries from which travel is not banned e.g. Afghanistan or Pakistan. The best way to stop ISIS is to stop it by its roots - That is, to stop the hateful extremist ideologies that are followed by ISIS. But when Canada takes in hate preachers, when UK allows people like Anjem Chaudhary to reside in it -- stopping ISIS seems impossible. However, travel ban won't be effective. More travel barrier and extreme vetting could be a much better way.

They claim to be Muslims and doing it for Islam, aren't they? You can say that the ultimate aim and goal of ISIS is NOT helping Islam and I agree, but an average ISIS fighter does not know that.

What is Covfefe? I've never heard of such thing and it doesn't make any sense. I bet this has turned into a meme/trend. Memes were never funny & trends were never interesting either. They become immediately viral and I don't get the point. Because they're funny/cool? Nope, not to me, at least. Yes, you can see my avatar being a "meme", but that was not the purpose. The purpose was that the scene was in one of my favorite episodes.

Why do people always make a big deal on Trump's smallest mistake?

Because people think it's funny. They have no sense of humor. There's nothing right or wrong with it and it's nothing something to deal with either.

Title: Re: Capitalism or Communism
Post by: Abu on July 05, 2017, 04:48:52 PM
Stupid question. Can someone explain the differences between the two?

The main difference is in the economy style.

In communism, the economy is strictly controlled by the government so that everyone receives what they need. People can almost always pursue which job they want because doctors, teachers and engineers will receive the same pay. It will be just enough for everyone to survive. Also, the government splits up all resources.

If you have a small job like a summer job you're exempt obviously, though.

Capitalism is like America's system, where corporations control the economy completely.

If you prefer communism over capitalism, you are a communist.

I'm not sure if you're trolling or just have no idea who I am, but I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt. In addition to almost 7 years as a confessed meme addict, I have moderated the largest meme forum on the Internet (at over 2 million subscribers) for over a year. You think I don't know memes? In that time I have removed over 400posts for not following subreddit guidelines. In addition to my moderation responsibilities I am one of the most active writers on knowyourmeme.com. You think I don't know memes? Then how do I write articles about them on a site called knowyourmeme? Several mainstream blogs have contacted me to ask about the recent meme phenomenon and each has been thankful and enlightened with what I had to tell them. It's not just limited to blogs though. Several companies have asked me to review their meme ads to avoid a failure like Toyota's meme commercial. Just last week a major food company contacted me with a paid offer to help them on a new ad campaign. I declined when I researched the company and saw that they had contributed money to socially conservative groups. It's safe to say that I am one of the world's foremost experts on memes and in fact there is no one I can think of that has a meme resume as impressive as mine. So please tell me, what are your qualifications to say that I don't know what a meme is?

Several mainstream blogs have contacted me to ask about the recent meme phenomenon and each has been thankful and enlightened with what I had to tell them. It's not just limited to blogs though. Several companies have asked me to review their meme ads to avoid a failure like Toyota's meme commercial. Just last week a major food company contacted me with a paid offer to help them on a new ad campaign. I declined when I researched the company and saw that they had contributed money to socially conservative groups. It's safe to say that I am one of the world's foremost experts on memes and in fact there is no one I can think of that has a meme resume as impressive as mine. So please tell me, what are your qualifications to say that I don't know what a meme is?

This has nothing to do with capitalism vs communism.

No, that's currently, Manila's would be 32.2 on average in 2100.

Remember that this is without the humidity, which usually makes temperatures up to 10-15 degrees warmer

The only problem I personally have is people who say they are transgender but...don't do anything. They might just change their hairstyle or maybe wardrobe but otherwise they are the same person. I'm sorry if this offends anyone, but I personally think if a person is transgender then they should...well, actually attempt to be the other sex ("sex-change operation should also be free).

That's unrelated though.

Sex is what you're born with, gender is what you mentally feel

What I mean is, people who change their gender but not their sex.

I don't think it's "bad" or that transgender people must change their sex to be recognised as the other gender like in some countries, i just find it odd as to why people wouldn't feel different in both.

Post by: Abu on August 11, 2017, 07:05:40 AM
After North Korea had successful missile strikes tested and celebrated them, Trump said he would possibly bring down "fire and fury" the likes of which the world has never seen before, which led to Kim Jong-un threatening to fire nuclear missiles at Guam, a US territory and island of over 150,000 people. This led to Trump recently saying the USA is now locked-and-loaded and ready to fight.

This is a very frightening incident in today's world, but what is your opinion on it?

Nukes won't happen.

C'mon now.

If they do, Trump does it and I doubt that.

NK won't do it purely because they have no main targets.

If we are speaking purely of US of course. Japan and SK can be targeted, but they there is a chance something will be done before then. If NK does action first, They will be destroyed within 24 hours. If US does action first, Then who knows.

This is true as well. He has actually helped North Korea advance technologically and solved many issues of poverty that crept up when Kim Jong-Il was in power.

Inadvertently he is creating the environment for a revolution by allowing university students to go to China, where they are able to see how the regime must be toppled.

Nuclear war is not happening.

Highly unlikely.

NK's use of Nukes would essentially take their destruction time of 24 hours to 2 hours.

Kim Jong is just an idiot, but not idiot enough to actually use Nukes.

He won't make a point with the usage of nukes whatsoever.

If NK strikes first, they will be eradicated.
If USA strikes first, Then who knows.

As for NK country, The whole country is brainwashed and in ruins, So I don't know what goes with the citizens.

America has connections, America has strong alliances and enemies and is always in the spotlight, and a supposed global leader for most things (although it's been changing recently). Whatever happens in America tends to have a ripple affect on the rest of the world.

Neither of them should be bombed because everyone is, in theory, equal and should not have to endure their homes and health being destroyed. But you asked for a difference, so there you have it.

I'm paraphrasing a video I watched...

The U.S. can stop the missiles unless they wait until the last minute. Trying to shoot a warhead at the last minute is like trying to shoot a penny with a BB gun that is falling off the Empire Stat Building.

True. However, it's probably due to the fact that they want to worry about their own country and not others that much. It's a bit disappointing but it sort of makes sense as to why there's even news about celebrity rumors, and that there's no news about anything in Africa besides someone from the USA helping them (or charity).

We’re both Libertarians! We’re just not in the same “economic scale”, whatever that is. XD
Yep, and we're both near the centre. I'm just left-leaning and you're right-leaning, that and I'm slightly more authoritarian.

Nothing wrong with libertarian values per se, but anarchy is rather impractical and problematic. Especially Anarcho-Communism. There must be some sort of authority to supervise over the equitable sharing in a socialist system.

When you get results there is something that says "Economic Axis - (number) Social Axis - (number)". If I have that I can put you on our forum chart.

Trust me. You don’t really expect where you’re at until you see these. I mean, I thought I was leaning a bit to the left, but the test said otherwise.

Although, don’t trust the test 100% as it doesn’t have specific choices to choose, like slightly agree or agree unless of (something).

Right wing supports economic freedom, capitalism. This is when you can have free trade, start your own companies, etc. but this means that the rich are much richer than the poor.

Left wing supports government-controlled economies, like communism. Everyone gets a similar amount of money so it’s equal, but your own businesses more or less cannot be formed.

Authoritarian supports traditions and less freedom in your social lives , and the farther up, the closer you get to dictatorships

Libertarian supports freedom of choice in your lives and as you move further down, you approach anarchism (no government)

There is currently an active shooting happening at a Walmart in Colorado. Police are still searching for the shooter, and there is currently no information on how many people the shooter has hurt, so far.

lol

another sad news:

Missiles were intercepted yesterday in the capital of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh, which is literally in the centre of the whole country.
The sad part is how the government wasnt able to stop the missiles while they were travelling across half the country across the borders with Yemen

The sadder part is the reason behind the missiles which was the war between SA and Yemen
Overview: Theyre fighting cuz of religion against their own religion as both Yemen and SA are Islamic countries but they belong to different "factions" which is the reason behind the war

That might be true in some cases tho
Actually, if guns were banned, the illegal trade of arms would increase
For example, despite drugs being banned in countries, there are common cases of people being arrested for drug use

IMO, there are logical arguments to both sides so meh just let the government decide it cuz its not like theyre gonna listen to the general public anyway

Apparently the shooter was only allowed to buy a gun, due to a mistake made by the US Air Force. Had the mistake not been made the shooter would never have been able to get his hands on a gun. The government should be more careful not to make mistakes like this, especially if it could cost the lives of others'.

Censorship at its peak
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait have advised their citizens not to travel to Lebanon and urged those who are in the country to leave as soon as possible.

Saudi Arabia's official news agency SPA quoted a source in the foreign ministry on Thursday as saying: "Due to the situations in the Republic of Lebanon, the official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the Saudi nationals visiting or residing in Lebanon are asked to leave the country as soon as possible.

"The Kingdom advised all citizens not to travel to Lebanon from any other international destinations."

Only hours later, Kuwait and the UAE also urged its nationals to leave Lebanon immediately. 

Bahrain - an ally of Saudi Arabia - had already ordered its citizens to leave Lebanon on Sunday, with the Bahraini foreign ministry issuing a travel advisory that cited "safety considerations".

Leave of absence

Lebanon has been on edge after the sudden resignation of Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, who announced his departure while on a visit to Saudi Arabia on Saturday.

His whereabouts have since been unknown. However, officials told Al Jazeera on Thursday that Hariri may be under house arrest or temporarily detained in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

Lebanon's Future Movement party, which is headed by Hariri, demanded on Thursday that the prime minister returns from the kingdom immediately in its sharpest statement yet over his leave of absence.

"The return of the Lebanese prime minister, the national leader, Saad al-Hariri, and the head of the Future Movement, is necessary to restore the dignity and respect to Lebanon at home and abroad," said a former prime minister, Fouad Siniora, in a statement read on TV.

Al Jazeera's correspondent in Lebanon said that the country's President, Michel Aoun, would soon call for assistance from the international community, the Arab League, the United States, the United Kingdom, China and Russia - to help uncover the reason behind Hariri's unexpected resignation.

Reuters news agency reported on Thursday, citing a senior Lebanese official, that the Lebanese government has not received Hariri's official resignation papers, and as such still considers him as prime minister. The official added that the restrictions imposed by Saudi Arabia act as an "attack on Lebanon's leaders".

Riyadh has denied that the prime minister is under house arrest.

'War declaration'

In his November 4 resignation, Hariri implicitly blamed Iran and its Lebanese ally, Hezbollah, for his decision. In his speech, he said that he suspected there were plans to target his life.

His father, Rafik Hariri - who also served as prime minister - was killed by in a bomb attack in 2005. Many of Hariri's supporters blamed the bombing on Hezbollah, which denies it was involved.

In his address from Riyadh, Saad al-Hariri said Iran planted "disorder and destruction" in the country and meddled in the internal issues of Lebanon as well as other Arab countries.

Referring to Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran, Hariri said, "Iran's arm ... has managed to impose a fait accompli on Lebanon through the power of its weapons" in the last few decades.

"They have built a state within a state," Hariri said from Riyadh.

His unexpected move also stoked fears of an escalation in the regional divide between Iran and the Gulf states, primarily Saudi Arabia, with Lebanon on the front lines.

Thamer al-Sabhan, the Saudi minister for Gulf affairs, said on Monday that Lebanon's government would "be dealt with as a government declaring war on Saudi Arabia" because of what he described as "acts of aggression" committed by Hezbollah.

In an interview with Al Arabiya, Sabhan said Hezbollah was involved in every "terrorist act" that threatened Saudi Arabia.

"The Lebanese must choose between peace or aligning with Hezbollah," he added, without offering details about what action Riyadh might take against Beirut.

Hariri, a leading Sunni politician, has been in office for less than a year, but previously served as prime minister between 2009 and 2011.

Oh and the Saudi Crown Prince arrested like a lot of the Saudi ministers and princes; basically some of the most powerful people in the country saying it was an action "against corruption" so the conditions are quite harsh and theyre having an internal conflict which may not be so internal after a while

It does sound really bad
...and it really is

but honestly i dont feel it since Ive been living here for almost half of my life (the half that i actually remember) so im pretty used to it

But I think people misunderstand and spread rumours
Its not like girls cant even step outside of the house
You see women going around all the time
The restriction isnt even abt the country itself
Its more abt the religion; Islam was founded in SA and its holiest place (The Ka'aba in Makkah) is in there
In Islam, its mandatory for every girl to cover herself and wear a hijab and so you see a lot of women completely hiding their face
And as much as I know abt Islam, im not a Muslim as a matter of fact so Im not forced to do that

As a matter of fact, SA only forces every woman who has reached puberty to wear a black gown called an abaya which is now even stylized with colours and designs so I dont have any other restriction upon me

And as most people know, every newer generation is more liberal than the previous one so people are way less conservative now

Sound good?

Well, these people have "support" that will not stay "quiet"

Not to mention that he is known to be the current king's (King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud) favourite son and is resented by other relatives cuz he has acquired so much power at the age of just 32

All of this -> Internal conflict

Lets not forget Saudi is also currently at war with Qatar

It’s restricting our civil rights not to be allowed to take drugs.

If someone KNOWS the harm in taking them, then it’s their choice to kill themselves early with drugs. Policing it and arresting people for it is costing the government billions in all countries with tough drug laws.

As long as people don’t take drugs in public property anyways, because then it’s unsafe for other people. But if you know all the risks and still choose to take them in the privacy of your own home - your decision.

Private property = your house.

If you want to smoke in your home then you can. If you want to smoke in public then you can’t, because as you said you are now violating other people’s civil rights and harming the environment.

bleeping hell, bleeping hell, bleeping hell

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/21/technology/fcc-net-neutrality.html

For those of you who don't know, basically, the FCC wants to end net neutrality, which if that happens, it will allow companies/ISPs to have more freedom w/ regulating websites, mostly the big popular ones like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc (make it slower and more expensive if you wan't it faster). That way, there can be more competition between various companies so the big site businesses can compete and try to make more money based on consumer patterns due to regulation on popular sites.

Right now, we have pretty much "free/equal Internet" which restricts these ISPs from regulating and charging more on certain sites than others so yeahh...

Again, this post is mainly directed to people living in the USA, but anyone should be aware of this.

Ugh, why do companies have to be THAT greedy?! >:(

Tbh, I agree with this. ^^^ I believe people are naturally born with at least a bit of greed. Even when people claim they are 100% selfless, in their head, they probably really want something, but they will then reject that idea from their head.

Okay, I’m not sure if that made sense. XD

It will become far more prominent.

Also, the USA is not known for randomly checking in on what random people do unless they have a criminal record or are suspected terrorists. With the abolishment of net neutrality, expect it to become much easier (and far more likely) for everything you do to be tracked.

I'd google Edward Snowden if I were you to learn more about this. He was an NSA whistleblower in 2013, and he released documents that showed that the NSA was spying on random civilians all the time. IIRC one of the first ones that was released was proof that the NSA buying phone records from Verizon.

Like I still dont understand what it is but what ik is that its a bunch (bunches) of extremists that are going against the police and the government and that the government didnt take much action until this point where they called the army

Pakistan is so random, im not even kidding

Protests and commotions are regular things

No, that would be a good thing because during the Spanish Civil War (during Franco’s dictatorship) some communities broke off to become villages without real order, and they all worked. They lived hidden from the dictatorship regime of Franco while still saying connected to the modern world. If something like this happened to a few areas of Pakistan it would be beneficial, could possibly have conditions like in the first world even.

No, I mean that even if they took over the country some reclusive villages would stay peaceful and become self-dependent without hierarchy, like an anarchy-collectivist society. You would be able to find peace there even if the government was overrun by totalitarian fundamentalist fascists.

This rant may be a little mature, but honestly I do not care.

Many people, especially famous people, have recently been fired or "shot down" due to reports of sexual harassment. Now, some people have. However, many people today lie about being sexually harassed, or take things out of proportion to make is sound sexually harassing. Now, Matt Lauer was recently fired from the Today Show, a show he has hosted for two decades. Now I am not sure if he truly sexually harassed a fellow worker, but they shouldn't fire him until he is proven guilty. Or Donald Trump. What seems like hundreds of women have claimed it, but they were found to be false, Some people think there is no harm in lying about being sexually harasses, but trust me, there is.

This is a personal example. A very kind man I know was recently accused of sexual harassment. The employer put him on unpaid leave for about 18 weeks, and he still is on unpaid leave. A kid spread rumors saying he sexually harassed him. However, after months of investigation, he was found innocent. However, the man's life is ruined. If he gets fired, nobody will hire him. Because when they search up his name, they will see is was accused of sexual harassment.

This world has become a terrible place. I wish people weren't idiots and state the false accusations.

The FCC has voted to repeal Net Neutrality, with a 3-2 vote.

However, I’m sure half the country will now be calling Congress, who can actually stop this under the Congressional Review Act. This let’s them nullify actions taken by agencies like the FCC. They just need a majority in the house and the senate (and 83% of voters support net neutrality)

Netflix has already given support to the millions of consumers outraged with this vote, and state they ar very disappointed with this. They will help in the legal battle against this horrendous decision.

What seems like hundreds of women have claimed it, but they were found to be false, Some people think there is no harm in lying about being sexually harasses, but trust me, there is.

This is a personal example. A very kind man I know was recently accused of sexual harassment. The employer put him on unpaid leave for about 18 weeks, and he still is on unpaid leave. A kid spread rumors saying he sexually harassed him. However, after months of investigation, he was found innocent. However, the man's life is ruined. If he gets fired, nobody will hire him. Because when they search up his name, they will see is was accused of sexual harassment.

This world has become a terrible place. I wish people weren't idiots and state the false accusations.
I know this post is old but that's awful. I feel so bad for him  :'(

Lusamine is just being delusional.

The idea of capitalism is not at play here.

Its the idea of democracy, the people did not want Net Neutrality to end, yet the decision of few outnumbers that of all of us.

That is not capitalism,It is democracy.

It also shows how democracy has fallen off and how it is exploited.

The idea of ending Net Neutrality came from the decision from a person working in the FCC,which is a part of the government, which later fueled the idea and eventually lead to what could be the possible end for Net Neutrality.

This is government based and related to decision and choice, or democracy.

Capitalism influences, but it is not a deciding factor, If democracy was actually fueled by people's belief, No matter what capitalism did, We would still have Net Neutrality.

No country today is purely communist or capitalist, even if a lot of them (like North Korea, for example) tend to lean towards one end of the spectrum more than the other. But yeah, every country should have SOME balance between the two.

- Scientists have found a way to successfully rebreed sections of the Great Barrier Reef.

- Once Amazon's new headquarters is finished, it will include space to shelter 200 homeless people.

- The snow leopard has been taken off the endangered species list.

- HIV/AIDS is no longer Africa's leading cause of death.

- Honeybee populations have increased by 27 percent.

- Conservationists agreed to plant 73 million trees over the next 6 years in the Amazon rainforest. New Zealand's prime minister wants to plant 100 million trees next year.

- Even though it doesn't really seem like it, crime has decreased by 2.7 percent this year.

- Child labor rates have declined by 50% since 2000.


And now, some local news.


- An Ohioan nine-year-old gave up his XBox to buy blankets for homeless people on Christmas.

- A Chick-fil-A opened last Sunday to feed passengers who were stranded in the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta airport after it experienced a massive power outage that caused the cancellation of hundreds of flights.

- A man in Tennessee opened up his house to an 89-year-old Navy Veteran.

All women deserve the right to go about their daily lives WITHOUT harassment. Unfortunately, society has led to catcalling being the norm. Men expect women to do as they say and harass them, whether it is forced or sexual or even non-consensual. The past year, 2017, has seen women stand up to this and SUCCEED! #MeToo is the best thing to come out of 2017. Let's continue to build a world where NOBODY will be scared to go outside.

Because they never became a political entity, no. Intend to? The ones I am talking about, yes, probably, since they actively advocate for the discrimination of men and the ways they go about this sound an awful lot similar like Hitler's beginning of the Jews, before the concentration camps. These are extremely rare of course. They're not real feminists.

Have you seen white, straight males get hate just for being white, straight males anywhere? No, apart from the extremist attention-seeking Tumblrinas who then get hate themselves.

Meanwhile women are subject to violence just for being women. It may not be all men who do this, but yes, ALL women are subjected to misogyny.

While not blatantly discriminating, the amount of men in this topic who refuse to sign because "everyone" is not in the topic title is pretty bad. The reason why we should have individual movements? Because if it was just "stop being mean to everyone", then nobody would listen and nobody would feel like a part of it.


Title: Re: International Day AGAINST Violence On Women
Post by: Lovaho on January 21, 2018, 01:45:35 PM
yeah but its not even subconsciously discriminating, people were just suggesting that women are not the only ones receiving discrimination as there are other groups of people getting discrimination too. it's not discriminating women at all.

It's true that having individual movements would help people listen because "stop being mean to everyone" is broad, but it is also the very form of equality.

My condolences to the community and friends and family of the victims. My following statements are in no way, shape, or form meant to disrespect them, or anyone who has been affected by crime committed with a gun.


Many people use tragic events such as school shootings and mass shootings as a way to promote a ban on guns in the U.S.A. I honestly believe guns should be legal. However, there needs to be stricter standards people need to meet in order to purchase a gun. For example, they should take tests to see if they have any physical or mental problem that could result in gun violence. Also, gun shows should be for display only, not actual selling and purchasing of guns. Anyone can walk into a gun show and by a gun with no background check or ID in many cases. Or it should be illegal to make your own guns, unless you have a special permit. As far as I know, you don't need a permit to privately make your own gun. And guns should only be allowed to be sold at certain stores. Many independent stores easily sell guns without getting background checks on people.

So yeah, the U.S.A. really needs to improve on who can sell or make guns and who can purchase them.

Once again, I'd like to wish my condolences to anyone who has been affected by the very tragic school shooting in Florida. May God be with you all.

that’s the 18th occurance of a gun being fired at a school this year in America - 6 deadly shootings involving death, and some other attempts. How is that possible? How is that allowed? it’s February 14th.  It’s not like anything will happen either, we will just see ‘thoughts and prayers’ and Congress will do nothing. Other countries, once these events occur once, they implement new gun control laws immediately, and it never happens again. But America just seem to keep letting their children get shot at school. No guns in the senate, but guns allowed in schools, cinemas, museums? It makes no sense, and the gun used was just dangerous, it doesn’t have any purpose other than a weapon of murder. I just don’t understand.

This is disgusting that Congress is doing nothing about this, this is literally the 31st school day of the YEAR and there's already been 18 school shooting attempts. It's horrifying that these things are basically ALLOWED to happen and all we get is 'Thoughts and prayers with the families of those lost in the tragic shooting'.

Here is another statistic

Since 2013, there have been 291 school shootings.

That’s about 1 a week.

But it’s ok we will ban kinder eggs because they are far more dangerous than guns.


Another stat:

1.4 million Americans have died in all wars they have taken part in since they became independent
1.5 million Americans have died from guns (outside of war, so homicides and mass shooting should etc) since 1970.

...

Yes, I am very happy to see that people are actually pushing Congress for change after this. In a way, perhaps something like this is what was needed for some ignorant lawmakers to finally see the issue.

There are far too many ignorant Americans, mostly Republicans, who find it perfectly acceptable to say "thoughts and prayers" and then purposely pretend that the issue doesn't exist. Even worse are the people who say; "this isn't the right time to talk about gun control", "if more people had guns this would not have happened", or "good kids with guns can stop bad kids with guns". So ignorant and horrible. America needs SOME FORM of change. If only more Republicans were like iRossome.

I’m pretty Conservative, as shown by my political compass. And it is absolutely horrific what happened in Florida yesterday. And a security guard, who tried to protect the students, was completely unarmed. I believe that to prevent school shootings, we should allow school staff, to carry their firearms, if they are properly trained, and haven permit, so they can protect their students. Which school do you think a shooter would target? The completely unarmed school, or the school where some teachers have guns. They would obviously choose the unarmed school. We need to properly protect our students. I have a teacher who is a former police officer, and I feel that if he could bring a firearm to the classroom, in. A holster, he would properly protect his students, as a properly trained gun owner. I give out my heart to the family of the victims from this horrible event, and I hope that our public education system will be more wise from this terrible occasion.


Title: Re: Our World Today
Post by: LogicallyLogical on February 16, 2018, 10:40:46 AM
Teachers don’t want guns. Teachers want these maniacs to not come near the kids they teach. It still baffles me as to how the AR 15 is so easily available - it is literally only good for causing destruction and death.

I know people say ‘oh it’s the person not the gun, criminals will find a way’. What’s the point in having any laws of that is the case? It’s an irrelevant argument anyway as the gun was obtained legally.

in conclusion - the us government has no clue, teachers don’t want guns, the arguments against gun control are ridiculous

In other words, the Deep South Republicans continue to prove that they care about their feelings and money more than education, equality, and actual people problems.

Active discrimination against the LGBT community is more common in the Bible Belt and Northern Conservative states. As society grows more tolerant of LGBT people things will get better.

Good, the only scenario I find abortion acceptable is if the mother will die if they give birth. If you can't take care of a child, give them up for adoption, my brother is adopted, it's not a bad system, don't kill your baby, give them to someone who can't have children, so they can have a baby to love

You're correct if the pregnancy is late, but if someone finds out, say, 15 weeks into their pregnancy something is keeping them from raising a child then aborting it is fine. It is not even a life.

And yes, "I don't think I am ready" when you discover it is perfectly acceptable.

If someone decides "I don't feel like it!" by the time it could be born, NO.

I respect your opinion, but I feel that any fetus is still a life, by abortion, your completely crushing the chances of someone getting to do something with their life, but not letting them have one at all.

Unconscious human life doesn't mean anything, and for the life is life thing you can also add in for example, the beef industry. Conscious, alive animals are put in inhumane conditions just so people can have their burgers, how come we care more about something barely alive than something that is already alive and has a wonderful life ahead, but is killed without mercy

During another presentation from a guest speaker, the man said that women on average in the U.S. take more personal days off work than men. And somehow, him saying that is sexist!

This is really barely even comparable. You don't abort babies at 35 weeks old. You abort fetuses when they are not living things. It's actually quite offensive that you are comparing the lives of people who have been murdered because of gun laws to mothers choosing to abort fetuses for reasons that 99% of the time make sense. Try to compile a lengthy list of someone saying in the latter half of their pregnancy "I am killing my baby because I don't want it anymore!" and then we can compare the two.

I agree that the first two instances are dumb... Why are people getting triggered over facts? Why do they assume they directly correlate with sexism? Why are people so protective of their identity in this context? Who cares if you're shorter? Why get mad over it?

As for abortion, a fetus never went through the same things as a real fully developed or developing human. It's never been exposed to the outside world and has never experienced anything a normal human would. Why should they be put in the same level as a human if they've never interacted with anyone or anything in the first place? Just being a fetus doesn't give a fetus the status of a human. People will sympathize on others who suffered from school shootings more than a fetus dying from an abortion because the fetus life can never be as rich, tangible, and impacting as mature human life.

You’re serious? Fetuses feel pain, and footage shows that the fetuse attempts to escape the abortion when it happens, it’s inhumane and wrong, fetuses are not part of the mother, so it’s not her body, her choice, it’s another human being

They do not attempt to "avoid" the abortion. They cannot think or feel pain.

Meanwhile, someone writes on an elementary school wall "Kill Kyle and Mikey" (my brother and his best friend), showing that children are hardly educated properly on serious matters like murder.

And a child in Mississippi shoots his sister and kills her over a video game controller, which clearly insinuates need for guns to not be as easily accessible.

Obviously the second matter is more intense than the first, but they're still concerning on multiple levels

fetuses are not part of the mother? have you been to health class? the fetus relies so much on the mother to fully develop into a baby by being literally a part of the mother. it's a parasitical relationship.

Security guards with guns are alright in schools, because they were trained in law enforcement
Teachers on the other hand, they were taught to teach, not serve as protectors and gun wielders


My teachers were thoroughly trained on how to protect us if we have a school shooting. Students at my school are also taught how to fight of a gun man (or woman... #GenderEkwalitee). While I do agree not all teachers should be able to carry a gun, but honestly, some are. I would trust about two thirds of my teachers with guns. But the guns should be locked away from the students.

Sorry about the double post.

In my opinion, games that are Rated M should be strictly advised to not let kids play them. Some of those games teacher gun violence, sexual harassment, etc. Grand Theft Auto is a big example! It upsets me when I here 7 years olds on my bus talk about shooting a guy, then stealing his truck on the game. This is honestly a factor in school shooting. Some kids are taught it's okay by the game.

Armed security guards can't react to violence taking place in a classroom but a teacher can. I didn't read the article about the guard stopping the school shooter but I'm pretty sure it was all because of luck since they had to be near the school shooter to be able to stop any further casualties (again I didn't read the article so I don't know how it went). Teachers outnumber armed security guards usually but giving them guns will cause panic to students. They'll only be able to effectively use the gun if they're always readily accessible. A teachers job is to teach and they won't do that effectively if they have to carry a gun around all the time. Students will probably be too paranoid to focus in class.

This is the problem I have. Always shifting the blame. Always something else. No Guns = No shootings. Let’s not pretend this isn’t true, because it works in every other country. The games do not ‘teach’ these things, they are merely included. If someone decides to shoot a school up, it’s peobably because they hate someone there, have serious mental health issues, or they are just a horrible, horrible person.

Yes, because 6 year olds are known for being reasonable

btw I don't think outright banning guns is smart at all. You can't say it will work because it worked in other countries because USA isn't other countries. Also, logistically it would be very difficult to actually enforce, and if someonr really wants to get a gun they would probably be able to through illegal methods. I'd start with background checks for buying guns but I'm not exactly a politician

I don't want teachers to have guns. Something like pepper spray might be better.

Regarding Trump and Mueller, things are going downhill for Trump. If Trumps orders Rosenstein to fire Mueller, then it is likely that Trump would be convicted for obstruction of justice, because Mueller is investigate the collusion between Trump and Russia. If Rosenstein refuses, or Trump doesn't fire Mueller, then Mueller will continue to find evidence about Trump and Russia.

The House of Representatives goes up for re-election in November, and a third of the senate, and it is very likely that the democrats will have a majority, so Trump won't be able to get anything dumb passed.

The violence ended 65 years ago, but the war unofficially went on. This also meant that the border remained closed off to nearly everyone, and the two countries were against each other. By officially ending the war and removing the DMZ, the two Koreas are a step closer to unification. Even if they won't reach that, they are now going to be more comfortable with each other and much less aggressive. Hopefully, this will last!

Dividing up Jerusalem would not be an option as the bone of contention is the Aqsa Mosque, which still would remain under control of a certain country. The best solution IMO is the 1949 plan, with Jerusalem being an international city managed by the United Nations.

The historic meeting between Trump and Kim Jong-un has been done! I think that the events went well. Trump didn't start any arguments (the worst he did was make some very peculiar jokes), and apparently Kim Jong-un has a great personality and will be invited to the White House.

Negatives: THREE FREAKING CALIFORNIAS!!!!! Why though? Like West Virginia became a separate state because we were anti-slavery while Virginia was, but there is no good reason for there to be three Californitas.

But then this one non-Liberal man calls a specific news reporter scum, and his account got locked until he promised to delete it. It's ridiculous how the Twitter employees have a bias for those who are Anti-Trump.

I've never heard any say she showed it to the children. She wore it when she could've worn ANY other jacket. It was simply distasteful. It may not have been intentional, but it still has some impact. All this does is distract everyone from the real issue, children are still torn apart from their families. :/

And why does it matter if Jenna Ortega wears that jacket? She cares about the issue. I'm sorry your world is crumbling because people are obviously unhappy with the message being sent out by the wardrobe of the FLOTUS.  :blank:

While you are correct the main issue most people now have is how this jacket has sparked outrage and the real issue has been forgotten - whether you like her or not, Melania Trump successfully convinced Trump to begin drafting legislature towards ending the separation of asylum seekers at the border. That is a good step for America but it is being overlooked by a jacket worn in, admittedly, rather poor taste.

Also, some dumb Disney Channel star who is never heard of is apparently wearing a jacket that say "I do care, and you should too" to the Disney Award show, and I find it dumb. Melania does care! Do some research instead of reading CNN article titles!

If you want, I can point out all the flaws in your many arguments and end it with "Do some research instead of reading FOX News titles!" (which would accomplish nothing) My point is everybody's biased, so don't insinuate that everyone who cares about a moral issue but got some facts mixed up is an idiot.

EDIT: Anyway I wasn't trying to be mean, I just got a little hot-headed since I was already in a bad mood. I think what I said is still reasonable though.

I think it is to protect our satellites, space stations, and etc from attacks. But he doesn't want it to happen right now. It was an idea for the future, in case terrorists or other countries try to destroy our space stations and satellites.

Have any of those been attacked yet? And what would they be attacked by? Most countries don't have a space program or the money to afford one too.

How are terrorists going to get into space? It's not like you can just get a rocket and BOOM, you're in space and now we can destroy space stations (there's only two by the way, the ISS and China's Tiangong-1) and even in the future, it'd most likely be extremely expensive.

Studies have found that the amount of unarmed African Americans shot by police is dramatically smaller than the amount of unarmed African Americans shot by armed African Americans every year. Media only shows instances where police shoot unarmed African Americans, and it makes it look like all police officers hate African-Americans. However, they rarely show instances when people kill police, unless it is apart of an active shooting or an act or terrorism. For example, two police men were murdered in a diner on their lunch break by a group African-Americans, and no major news sources reported on it. Most major news outlets today only show stories to make group of minorties, as well as everyone else, fear for their lives.

Please note that I'm not saying all African-Americans are evil. I'm just showing an instance where the roles switched. Second, I'm not saying their is no racist police officers. There are, unfortunately, some racist police officers. But 99.99% of police aren't racist.

You are both correct, and incorrect.

Your first paragraph is correct. The USA has a tendency to group people by race. The "black" community has become its own worst enemy, constantly fighting over what it means to be "black". This makes no sense in the first place, and it's only worsening racial relationships.

And yet, racism in law enforcement is a major issue in the USA. Racism in general is, which is unfortunate. I would not say that the majority of officers are racists, but there are quite a large minority. Definitely not 0.01%. For examples, you can look at the recent string of 911 calls by Caucasian Americans for "black" people doing normal things; having BBQs, selling water, mowing lawns, or going to a pool.

That's different though, I mean the ideology of letting yourself submit to anything that happens because "the world sucks anyways".

See someone racist harassing a person? Ignore them, the world is a bad place and there are just more racists.

Just because their are racists in the world doesn't mean the world is racist.

Does anyone ever talk about a group of African America teenagers who assulted a man for wearing a MAGA hat? Certainly not the news. There is a double standard when it comes to racism. It seems like mainstream media only report on white people being rude or racist to minorties, but rarely report on minorities being rude or racist to white people.

Thankfully this is not a major issue in the USA. We should be happy it is not because if it were then it truly would be a problem that people support ISIS. However here is my dissemination of this video.

1. PragerU is notorious for being extremely biased towards hardline right-wing policies. Many of their "studies" on race or sexual orientation, etc.  have been proven to be objectively false. This video could have been set up. If it isn't then it is extremely likely that they selectively chose who to show.

2. Assuming it is not set up, nobody seems to actually be cheering for the ISIS flag as you said that they were. People were laughing at him holding the ISIS flag. Anyone who have compliments said them extremely sarcastically, not with enthusiasm or genuine love for ISIS. Perhaps PragerU did not have any good examples of people supporting ISIS so this is the best that they had.

3. Many young Americans have perfectly good reasons for disliking the USA. Your nation (and most of the Western world) has meddled in other country's politics unnecessarily for an extremely long time, as some of them noted. In fact, since the USA overthrew Saddam Hussein leading to ISIS, the USA indirectly caused ISIS to exist.
