Amateur photographer. Mostly I take photos of birds, but also stuff that isn’t birds. Don’t steal my photos.

No, it’s just the corporate feudalism we live under. I guess that’s pretty bizarre itself, though.

Please explain Idaho, Alaska, Wyoming, the Dakotas, Utah, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, and West Virginia then. All of them are filled to the brim with some the dumbest people on Earth.

Waukesha County is by far the most conservative in the state, and has been playing a massive role in destroying our state’s democratic process for a few decades now.

Another fun fact about it is that they’ve been trying for years to glom onto the Lake Michigan watershed, which, geographically, it is not a part of. They want to straight up take our water, which they do not need, in exchange for nothing whatsoever of any real value.

Why would the state patrol possibly want to do anything about this? Cops are cops, and cops protect each other from perceived enemies.

Group of up to 50 people shoplift about $100K worth of luxury items from L.A. mall; used bear spray against guards (www.nbcnews.com)

Between 30 to 50 people swarmed the Nordstrom at the Westfield Topanga Mall in Woodland Hills, making off with thousands of dollars worth of luxury handbags and high-end clothing, an LAPD spokesman told NBC News.

Stealing from wealthy corporations is an extremely valid and morally acceptable form of protest. Hell, it’s a morally good thing to do even if it’s not meant as a protest.

I’m not going to defend assaulting the guards, though, except in the case of self-defense. Store security guards have no business using force against shoplifters, and most company policies align with that fact.

Who actually gives a fuck about corporate property being destroyed? These companies commit more theft from their workers than all other theft combined. They objectively deserve this.

You know someone is a shit person when they equate income with value as a human being.

Even if that were a valid take, almost every working poor person contributes more to society than nearly any rich person does, and would therefore still have more human worth.

Feel free to explain why it’s not objectively a good act to steal from the entities that themselves commit the overwhelming majority of theft, intentionally, systematically, and forcefully hold the majority of the worlds working population either in actual slavery, poverty, or at least unjustifiable and extreme financial insecurity that technically isn’t poverty because government definitions of poverty are patently absurd, and and who are actively and knowingly driving us towards towards the collapse of the environment and the greater part of biological life itself.

I’ll give you a hint: you’re actually just wrong by any standard that values human life in any way.

Visiting a burning, inhospitable hellscape where people are actively dying and the rest are having their entire lives destroyed, and doing it for fun because “well, we’ve been planning it for a while, and want to go somewhere as a family and can’t come up with anything else exotic enough for our standards on short notice” is incredibly trashy and selfish.

They sound like shitty people, honestly, and I hope they have an awful time.

I genuinely don’t care. Using the location of ongoing mass human sufferring as a tourist destination is disgusting and entirely indefensible. “I couldn’t get a refund” is not a valid excuse.

This is happening in the wealthiest nation in human history. The government has an unquestionable obligation to provide relief for these people. Suggesting that keeping the victims of this disaster in the area and going to work while their homes are still burning is an acceptable answer is revolting. Fuck this disgusting “but what about the economy” attitude.

I’m not rich at all. I’ll never be able to afford to retire, much less drop everything to go to fucking Hawaii on vacation. I’m just not a shitty person with no empathy.

Having effectively unlimited resources and the unbreakable power and control over the rest of us that comes with it sounds pretty elite to me.

Our institutions have been a joke for almost 250 years.

Good. Sustaining an economy that exploits and disenfranchises the majority, or even a significant minority, is indefensible.

MostlyBirds,
@MostlyBirds@lemmy.world avatar

Uh, no. I don’t even know how you came to that conclusion. Low unemployment means a smaller pool of people to fill open positions.

How could anyone seriously come up with a take this stupid?

“It’s ok that the state murders peopl for fake crimes as long as the people not being murdered don’t mind.”

You’re a fucking psychopath.

This is only a temporary promotion. Tge price is not going to stay at $99/night, and it’s not an alternative to rent, but in addition to it. This is not permanent housing, they’re fucking hotel rooms.

Hard to tell, honestly. Too many people saying shit like that unironically these days.

If you think simply working your whole life isn’t enough to deserve a comfortable retirement, you’re a despicaple sack of shit

I have a hobby so I shouldn’t get to retire? Oh, fuck off. People like you made this country to worthlesd shithole it is today. I genuinely hope you lose everything.

The judicial system strongly disagrees with you on that one.

Although I wish Reddit will soon rot and I’m an atheist, we all know who the people focused on criticizing only Islam are.

A large number of them are former muslims who managed to escape from oppressive islamic regimes, and are now outspoken activists against an evil ideology.

I prefer the company of people who are either neutral about religion or hates them all equally.

That’s pretty stupid on your part either way. Neutrality towards religion is simply complicity. “Hating them all equally” is absurd and simple-minded, as every religion differs wildly in the level of harm it does. Islam and christianity are objectively the most harmful religions in existence today, and to focus your disdain on the one that you have the most experience with or poses the biggest threat to you is entirely reasonable.
