AstridWipenaugh,

I got the Eufy S330 doorbell/keypad lock. The kids have their own pin and can lock/unlock without a key. I get notifications when they use it and can remotely lock/unlock via my phone. It’s been fantastic for us.

AstridWipenaugh,

SCOTUS can say that your constitutionally protected right to privacy doesn’t extend to your health. So yeah, they can say whatever they want now. They have destroyed any semblance of credibility they once had.

AstridWipenaugh,

Fortunately for them, Drumpf is dumb enough to break the few laws we do have so they don’t need to reign anything in to get him.

AstridWipenaugh,

Just like every other time… 🤡

Secret Hamas Files Show How It Spied on Everyday Palestinians (www.nytimes.com)

The Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar has for years overseen a secret police force in Gaza that conducted surveillance on everyday Palestinians and built files on young people, journalists and those who questioned the government, according to intelligence officials and a trove of internal documents reviewed by The New York Times....

AstridWipenaugh,

Shlomo Brom, a former deputy to Israel’s national security adviser, told the New York Times that an empowered Hamas helped Netanyahu avoid negotiating over a Palestinian state, saying the division of the Palestinians helped him make the case that he had no partner for peace in the Palestinians, thus avoiding pressure for peace talks that could lead to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. (source)

Damn those anti-israeli national security advisors.

AstridWipenaugh,

Why do you insist on conflating funding a terrorist organization with cash with providing humanitarian aid via food and medicine?

AstridWipenaugh,

I’d agree with that, but calling it privilege is a bad name. Because how do you implement equality when dealing with privilege? You take from the privileged to level the playing field. So when you apply that to being privileged because you aren’t being discriminated against, the solution is to remove that privilege? So… do more discrimination so everyone is equal?

When you instead identify those that are oppressed and those that are not, the solution to equality is to remove the oppression. So when applied to our situation, remove the discrimination so everyone is equally not discriminated against.

AstridWipenaugh,

Heh Lemmy is just left of center so it seems better. You’ll reconsider your position when you meet the tankies.

AstridWipenaugh,

You know you fucked up when it’s the ADL telling you your pro-Israel rhetoric has gone too far.

AstridWipenaugh,

That’s actually really interesting!

TL;DR they gave the coast to the Ottoman Empire hundreds of years ago for free because they were tired of fighting invaders from the sea. Free protection in exchange for cities they weren’t able to defend anyway.

AstridWipenaugh,

Kids these days are lazy shits. All you have to do to earn $1,000,000,000 by 30 is drop out of school at 15 and work full time 40 hrs/wk with no vacation days. It’s tough, but it’s possible.

Oh forgot one part: hourly pay needs to average out to $32,051/hr and have exactly zero expenses for 15 years.

AstridWipenaugh,

We twisted them two extra times. Oh wait… It’s lefty tighty, right?

AstridWipenaugh,

The author apparently hasn’t been paying attention the last 8 years. Republicans are most certainly not going to come to the realization that Trump is unfit for office and suddenly decide to run a new candidate a couple months before the election. They have no play but to double down on Trump.

Hamas official says group would lay down its arms if an independent Palestinian state is established (apnews.com)

A top Hamas political official told The Associated Press the Islamic militant group is willing to agree to a truce of five years or more with Israel and that it would lay down its weapons and convert into a political party if an independent Palestinian state is established along pre-1967 borders.

AstridWipenaugh,

Returning to the 1967 borders is a nonstarter. Israel has stolen a LOT of land since then so it would mean evicting entire Israeli settlements. Not that I disagree with doing that, but Israel would never agree to it. It would be like the US giving good land back to the native Americans; it’s simply never going to happen.

AstridWipenaugh,

They were just trying to protect everyone from dihydrogen monoxide poisoning. Bibi saw a Facebook post about its dangers.

'Vortex Cannon vs Drone' - Mark Rober shows off tech from a "defense technology company that specializes in advanced autonomous systems". That seems bad

I’ve enjoyed Mark Rober’s videos for a while now. They are fun, touch on accessible topics, and have decent production value. But this recent video isn’t sitting right with me...

AstridWipenaugh,

Destin works for defense contractors and he’s never been shy about his interest and involvement in weaponry. He has a bible quote at the end of his videos. I seriously doubt I would agree with him about pretty much any politics and definitely not his personal beliefs, but he keeps his channel pretty strongly focused on the episode’s subject without bringing his personal views into it. He seems to do the channel because he likes geeking out about nerdy stuff and wants to share that love with others.

I personally feel that the knowledge he’s sharing is more important than knowing we probably disagree on some things. If he starts including prayer time or turns his channel into military porn, I’m out. But his channel is a positive influence for now, IMO.

Rober is different. He acts like cool science bro that worked for NASA and wants you to think he’s Bill Nye or something. But he seems to be doing it for views and to push the stuff he’s selling. He doesn’t seem genuine. He’s at risk of turning into a prank bro channel if his quality goes downhill.

Do you also support “just say no to drugs” and abstinence only sex ed? Screens, as a concept, are not literally the devil. It’s unmonitored and unlimited screen time that’s the issue.

E: Damn y’all are dense. “Just say no” was a failed messaging campaign from the war on drugs. The alternative isn’t “say yes to drugs”; it’s actual education about drugs so you know what they are and the actual dangers they can pose. The “just say no” campaign taught that weed was a “gateway drug” and that everyone that tries the devil’s lettuce will start using cocaine, amphetamines, and there’s a 100% chance you’ll become a homeless junkie and die of an overdose. It was about as ignorant as you can get.

AstridWipenaugh,

I never said that. Sounds like you’re projecting.

AstridWipenaugh,

I mean, that seems fair. It’s a beer event. Like really a beer event. You can come and go as you please, so just go for a walk if you want to blaze.

AstridWipenaugh,

There’s a song about how it feels when you get your royalty check. I think that’s what it’s about… Cannibal Corpse - Meat Hook Sodomy.
