If cities don’t have cars, then where will the workers live? In houses?!

Burn_The_Right,

Man, I’m glad I bought a Murena Fairphone.

Burn_The_Right,

Is there a way to upvote a comment twice?

Burn_The_Right,

According to every law enforcement agency in the U.S., federal and local, property crime is categorically different than violent crime.

Unless someone was injured or attacked, burning an empty vehicle is only a property crime.

Burn_The_Right,

A house is not an obviously empty car. These two scenarios are not the same at all.

If a person is in danger, or could be reasonably be expected to be in danger, then the elements of the crime obviously change significantly.

There’s a shoe? Where?

It’s almost like the source of our nation’s most pressing problems is conservatism itself.

A plague of conservatism has never been cured by pacifism. Conservatives are doing their absolute best to oppress or kill the normal people. This disease is long overdue for a cure.

Burn_The_Right,

Unfortunately, the conservative Dems have already said they will not allow the filibuster to be abolished. Maybe next term, though, as Sinema and Manchin won’t be with us anymore.

Burn_The_Right, (edited )

The Dems had the trifecta for just 2 years of Obama’s entire presidency. We had the supermajority for just 6 months. The conservatives filibustered everything when we didn’t hold the supermajority. That’s barely enough time to accomplish what was accomplished.

But one more important factor exists here. We (on the left) are not exactly in clear agreement on what specific policy changes need to be made in policing. So, this action will require (probably) months of debates and proposals. When we have trifectas, we usually go after the things we think we have time to actually accomplish (things that already have a clear solution).

With policing, my belief is that the core of the problems come from conservatism. Nearly every act of brutality, racism, xenophobia, transphobia, homophobia, misogyny and other abuse of power comes from conservative cops. The progressives don’t typically engage in such behaviors.

Unfortunately, less than 5% of cops (often less than 1%) in any agency are non-conservative or progressive. In smaller agencies, 100% of the cops are likely to be conservatives. If we were to make conservatism a disqualifying trait for policing nation-wide, we could eventually fix the core of the problem. We would also get support for legislative reform from the agencies themselves as the police who remain would be primarily normal people rather than conservatives. Forcing non-discriminatory behavior from conservatives through legislation alone would be nearly impossible. Conservatives don’t apply rules to themselves, so making more rules will likely not solve the problem. Getting rid of conservative police while attracting progressive police candidates will solve the core of the problem.

Openly identifying conservative ideology as the core of the problem may sound unusual, as normal people are usually too polite to say things so bluntly. But, conservatives are not a protected class and there is no place in a modern culture for their ideologies of hate and bigotry. So, we should speak openly about the problem of giving such people so much power over others. We should be specific in identifying the core of the problem so we can quickly and efficiently address it the next time we have a trifecta.

Greater Idaho movement: 13 counties in eastern Oregon have voted to secede and join Idaho (ktvz.com)

On Tuesday, voters in Crook County passed measure 7-86, which asked voters if they support negotiations to move the Oregon/Idaho border to include Crook County in Idaho. The measure is passing with 53% of the vote, and makes Crook County the 13th county in eastern Oregon to pass a Greater Idaho measure.

The grievance is legitimate, the government completely ignores their desires…

I see your point, but their “desires” are to oppress or kill the normal people, so I just don’t see their grievances as legitimate. Conservatives are furious that they are unable to use legislation to further their conservative values of racism, homophobia, misogyny, xenophobia, transphobia, antisemitism and other conservative bigotry. There is simply no room in a modern culture for hate-based ideologies like conservatism.

We should not legitimize their harmful desires by recognizing their “grievances”. Instead, we should marginalize hate by marginalizing the haters.

In short, fuck 'em.

Are you referring to the $2 billion U.S. dollars that Saudi Arabia gave to Jared Kushner as an “investment” in his consulting company that has never made a profit for anyone before? The $2 billion Saudi Arabia apparently gave Jared Kushner as a gift that may be related to the extremely valuable government secrets illegally stolen by his father-in-law Donald Trump? That $2 billion?

Actually, we can and should. Here’s why…

Russia’s nukes are mostly 40 year old warheads on 50 year old delivery systems. These systems have been maintained by notorious black market scalpers who have somehow managed to sell massive amounts of valuable rocket fuels, nav computers and other unique parts on the black market over the last several decades. We can be sure the launch, guidance and detonation failure rates would be extremely high. High enough that, even without intervention, a long-range attack is very unlikely to be successful.

Now, factor in the decades of aggressive research and spending the west has focused on mitigating nuclear threats, with a high focus on Russian systems. While it’s always best to avoid the attempt if possible, Russia has almost zero chance of posing a serious threat to the west. The threat to Ukraine, however, is a bit higher as they may (smartly) choose very simple delivery methods instead of what we would be able to defend against. But, that still requires a ton to go right and could cause the U.S. or the EU to become aggressive. Putin will do almost anything to avoid that outcome.

So, the smart money on expediting the end to this war and minimizing casualties is to have a policy to almost always call Putin’s bluff. He has a very weak hand and has shown it to pretty much everyone at the table.

Reminder: If you aren’t fighting conservatism, you aren’t fighting global warming.

Burn_The_Right,

Oh, don’t worry. The conservatives still plan to decorate the bridges by hanging gay people from them.

A plague of conservatism cannot cure itself. The disease must be aggressively fought to be destroyed.

Burn_The_Right,

Switch to who? The FTC is allowing them to all become one company.

Burn_The_Right,

Boy, that ICC prosecutor sure got “slammed”. Lots of slammin’ happening over here, y’all.

Burn_The_Right,

On their best behavior just before an election. This all changes after the election.

Obergefell and Loving will both be quickly struck down as soon as this election cycle is over. Get ready.

I suspect they will clarify the decision to specifically exclude application of it to same-sex relationships, finding that “equal protection” cannot include classes created by “personal choice” such as sexual orientation or gender identity.

You know… Standard conservative bigotry. The outright racism and re-segregation happens a couple years later, I predict.

Burn_The_Right,

Sorry the conservative bigots who deny climate change and pretend the water isn’t rising are going to get wet.

There. That’s my sympathetic statement for them. But, no amount of warnings or even pleading with them can ever cause conservatives to do the right thing. The more we implore them to recognize the science, the more likely they are to drown just to upset us.

I, for one, support a conservative’s right to drown exactly as they insist. We should be supporting their decisions for once. Let them face the tides bravely. We should be cheering them on as they sink beneath the waves. 👏 Good job, y’all! Good job! 👏

As for the innocent non-conservatives, we should be rescuing them and getting them to normal states just to get them away from the conservatives. Leave the rest behind.

Burn_The_Right,

It’s almost like conservatives are very bad at governing. Imagine how nice things could be for the UK right now if not for conservatives.

Burn_The_Right,

Slow?

Burn_The_Right,

Bro, what?! Who the fuck can save $1000/month with current rents and home prices? 🤣

I thought you were serious for a second! Good one.

Burn_The_Right,

Conservatism is a vile plague of bigotry, oppression and death. It always has been. There is no place in a modern culture for such a hate-fueled ideology.

Teach your children why it is unethical to keep relations or do business with conservatives. Speak openly about the evils of conservatism. We can exclude hate in our lives by excluding the haters from our lives.

Burn_The_Right,

A liberal? Did you mean to say progressive?
