In a highly anticipated State of the Union address, President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech on Tuesday night, outlining his administration’s vision for the future and setting the stage for the upcoming election....

They are either incredibly ignorant of current and past events, anarchists who want to see the world burn, GOP operatives, or Russian sympathizers. I block most of them when I read their self righteous B.S. If it wasn't Israel it'll be some other issue that they pontificate and spread doom and gloom about. You can always tell who they are by their unwavering stance and how they believe that they are positively correct.

There were more deportations from the Obama administration than both the Trump and Bush Admins. Clinton deported more people than any president before him back to Grover Cleveland. Obama had over a million more people deported in the 8 years he was in office than Bush had in his 8 Years. The bs right wing talking points are easily proven false and there is plenty of evidence to prove them false but once the idiots hear something they latch on to it and believe it no matter what. The only difference between right wing immigration policies and left wing immigration policies is the left wing tries to treat immigrants like human beings and is easier on those seeking asylum.

Funny I just reread your comment and saw you mentioned something about treating people like humans I agree and that's my point also.

Debating with you isn't worth my time based on your post history. Here is a WP article about the differences between Obama and Trump relating to your post and mine.

‘Kids in cages’ It’s true that Obama built the cages at the border. But Trump’s ‘zero tolerance’ immigration policy had no precedent.

I doubt there would be any companies that own the refineries that would stay in TX at the risk of losing all the business they do in the rest of the US. TX would be a dystopian nightmare to live in if they did leave the US. No national company is going to stay, all the military bases and defense industry would be gone, no products will be delivered from other states for as long as it would take to figure out passports and immigration back into the US, the airports would no longer have FAA oversight, and a million of other small things that get taken for granted in everyday life would be gone. Companies that are US based have a responsibility to work in their shareholders interest and I can't see any rational shareholders wanting to leave the entire US market for the shithole TX market.

Edit: I replied to the wrong comment but it kind of fits so I'll leave it.

A kid just did it tonight at level 155 - Fractual161 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lN18RxSgDZ4&t=3363s I think that time stamp is right around when he did it, if not look around the middle of the video.

I retired in 2019 and spent months tracing accounts and reporting fake accounts to facebook and never had one account removed from my reports. I found the Dorr brothers alt accounts and exposed their astroturfing various gun groups and anti-quarantine groups that acted like local grassroots groups for a large number of locations. A Washington Post article (and several other news orgs picked up the story) was published after I contacted a reporter about what I found and handed over the evidence I found. Facebook didn't remove one single group or account linked to the Dorr Brothers.

The point I'm getting to is I just had a post of mine removed two days ago for "Cybersecurity" reasons. The post was made in August and was nothing more than me explaining Project 2025 and contained quotes from the Project 2025 manifesto. No links and in no way could be a threat to anyone's security. Facebook is anti-democracy and a threat.

Right to work states are anti union.

Here's the AFL-CIO's take on right to work AFL-CIO

I used to be a union member in a right to work state and we had no union contract or protections until a democrat majority was voted in to the state government and passed a law allowing public safety unions to collectively bargain a contract with our employer.

I was just thinking earlier that there are two groups in congress that are advancing Russia's agenda. The ones actively working and following Russia's plan and the fucking idiots who have no idea what they are doing. I also think Greene falls in the fucking idiot category.

Yeah I do the same thing. Took the free cs50 classes from Harvard online because I was bored one night and wanted to learn Python for some reason.

The problem is the GOP voters are idiots. Low - No information voters whose entire political education is based on cherry picked and planned sound bites. Most don't know they are voting for the end of the US or fascism but they sure as hell know they are voting to "insert fear mongering sound bite". They eat this stuff up since it hurts someone else. No other political party in the US capitalizes on keeping idiots entertained.

Meal planner and shopping lists are a gateway drug. Next thing you know you're 30 topics deep with embedded webpages and items in a database, planning world domination one step at a time.

In all seriousness, I started using notion because I have ADHD and needed something to keep me on track then I really over did it and have lists and planning set up for most of my daily life and I share it all with my GF who uses it for all of her notes.

I've settled on using wsl2 on a windows machine. I run Ubuntu and kali in wsl as virtual machines on my main windows computer. I was an early user of linux and bsd but have found it's just plain easier to run day to day on windows.

I run both Ubuntu and kali simply because I haven't been able to make sound work correctly with Ubuntu on wsl but it works great in kali, plus kali has all the pentesting stuff so I can play around with that in my free time.

Congrats on the neat gift! Only thing I saw on the site was "fits books up to 15" tall". I'd assume the sides are around 1/2" thick and the over hang of the roof is around 1.5" - 2" on each side. The bottom is probably 1/2" thick also so subtract that from the outside dimensions given on the website and you should have a rough idea of what the inside is unless they have some additional support inside that we can't see from the pics on the website.

I have been wanting to put one up for quite a long time but live in an area where I'm afraid it would become a drug stash or an invitation for trouble. I still might do it someday because I think it could help someone and that would outweigh the downsides. I hope yours gets a lot of use!

I'm not sure if they would be classified as influencers but have you ever fallen into the rabbit hole of youtube reaction channels? I fell into it because of a band I like was being heavily reacted to on youtube but I quickly noticed there is a cycle of right wing propagandists like Tom McDonald and other music type people who get featured on these reaction channels. The majority of the reactors I watch are black but they sell their souls for the traffic they get from what I assume are mostly bots that watch and comment in support of the right wing propaganda.

The first time I watched one of those reaction videos I was awestruck by how the reactor was so agreeable to the theme of "I won't apologize for being white". I know it's only tangibly related to the topic here but I have been bothered by it and wanted to share and see what other people think.

I am convinced the reactors or paid to favorably review this stuff.

That's crazy! I like aviation but the track record of airshows has kept me from going to any the last few years.

The other posters have given good info. I just wanted to add to try setting the fan to on instead of auto so it runs all of the time. This will help keep the air moving in the house and might help keep it cooler. Also make sure you check the filter and change it if you haven't yet. See if your energy company offers an energy audit. that will tell you if you have leaky windows, doors, or insulation problems. I have shitty insulation but with the ac fan running all of the time I can keep the house @ 70 - 72 on a 95 degree day.

I'd also consider getting a second opinion from another HVAC company, you could have undersized ductwork or another problem that the first company isn't acknowledging.

TIL that after psychologist Timothy Leary was sentenced to prison, he had to take a test that he himself created. He used his knowledge to be assigned to a lower-security prison and escaped. (en.wikipedia.org)

On January 21, 1970, Leary received a ten-year sentence for his 1968 offense, with a further ten added later while in custody for a prior arrest in 1965, for a total of 20 years to be served consecutively. On his arrival in prison, he was given psychological tests used to assign inmates to appropriate work details. Having...

It's fascinating how some of that generation have turned out. My parents are in their mid 70's and are on an edibles kick right now since they "are to old to be smoking". Their neighbor is the same age and has bought into the whole war on drugs and just about every other bit of propaganda authoritarians have put out in the last 50 years. The neighbor is a good source of daily excitement and stories that my parents like to tell us when we see them.

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.

Your comment is on the nose.

I have had many arguments with people over the fact you shouldn't want to shoot someone over property. I'm a gun owner but I don't carry a gun and I don't believe a life is worth less than property. The amount of people I know who carry a gun and have said they would shot someone for stealing is incredibly high and troubling.

I don't know if it is a direct result of the daily dehumanization of ethnic groups and criminals we are bombarded with all day long everyday or if it is much more complex but there is a real problem in the US when large groups of people don't value other people's lives.

I never said anything about condoning criminality. I said valuing property higher than life isn't right. I said this in another post a few days ago but I'll say it again. I live in a high crime area and I am sick and tired of people stealing from not only me but my neighbors and from businesses that support the community's needs. That doesn't change the fact I think it's morally repugnant to want to kill someone for property theft.

If we invested more in community building and opportunities along with courts and police departments upholding the law we would have less of these types of crimes. Where I live the police stopped policing because they got mad after several officers were charged with the murder of a kid they arrested. In my eyes that makes them the same as the people stealing from the community. The courts here rarely convict juveniles so the kids know they can get away with just about anything.

While I say I live in a high crime area I also know that overall in the US crime rates have been declining over the years especially violent crime rates.

The top photo was taken (I suppose by a satellite?) with a polarized filter and the bottom photo looks like a drone shot without a polarized filter. The polarized filter will make the water appear more blue and 'see through' the non polarized photo shows the sunlight and smoke reflecting off the water.

I am quite unsure what any of this has to do with the fact you can look at both photos and see clearly that most of the buildings are burnt to the ground in the second photo. Does the lack of a polarized filter in the second photo indicate that those buildings really didn't burn to the ground?

It's a nation wide thing I'm pretty sure. We have the same crime rings here that do the same thing. It's known as the homeboy shopping network around here. They steal it all then have other people (usually a girlfriend or hanger on) sell it on social media sites or on the street. I regularly see household cleaning items for sale in bundles on local facebook groups. I was just at Home Depot tonight and the woman at the self checkout told us that just before we came up to check out 4 people walked right out with full carts. It sucks and it costs all of us.

My neighborhood has been having a crime wave all summer and it's all 11 - 15 year olds committing the assaults, shootings, and thefts. The police say that is who stole our car and they have no hope of ever catching them and if they do catch them they won't face any real consequences. The police gave up here both because they are apathetic but also because the police murdered a guy a few years ago and are mad several of them got charged with his murder so they stopped policing. I've had to call 911 about 15 times this year and when I could get through the average response time was over an hour.

I have been lucky to live in all types of areas but I know people who have never lived in an area like this have this belief that everyone is good and deserves a chance. I no longer believe that. There are plenty of people that will harm you, steal from you, or kill you and not waste a moment thinking about it.

Almost all of the people on my block work hard for their stuff also and it kills me when one of us lose it to people who steal it from us.
