  1. Neither. They're both terrible people that represent extreme ideologies that for some reason have become more mainstream. If I had to, I guess Biden is the lesser of the two evils.

    Definitely Trump.

     the Left is too ax-crazy nowadays.

    And Trump isn't? Last I checked it was Trump that's demonstrated he's a danger to our first amendment rights.

  2. @Prince Doopliss Does make good points. All lives do INDEED matter, BUT the All Lives Matter movement is clearly a racist knee-jerk reaction to black people saying "our lives matter too." Even if I think the BLM movement has taken quite a few liberties and to me has really lost their point.

     

    All lives do indeed matter, and saying that is in no way racist, in fact it's quite the opposite. BUT when I say this I do count Black Lives here, unlike the movement who's obvious intent was to obfuscate the fact that injustices are faced by the black community at the hands of the police. But should we also say Male Lives Matter then? After all, they get sentenced to 63% more jail time than women do. And what about LGBT lives? WE are the only one of the top three categorically RISING (between 2017 and 2018) when it comes to hate crime incidences according to the DoJ, and non-cis lives? OURS must matter, too... Since incidents against them rose by an astonishing 37% between 2017 and 2018. We can't just focus on one injustice here. And let us not forget about the disabled either.

  3. @Dabmanz With a few Calm Minds up and using Stored Power or another high powered STAB move, this thing could honestly be a serious threat as a special wall that could possibly go through half a team of Pokemon on its own. If not sweep them, though, possibly confusing them instead. It does have a weakness to physical attackers that could easily be exploited though.

    A fast physical attacker with the right types of moves could pose a serious threat to him.

  4. I don't really care about the Oscars, but I will say that Trump's comment on Parasite's win is quite obviously xenophobic. Also, the Irishman won no awards... At all... Yet they gave one to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood? :huh:

     

    Also, "Gone with the Wind?" Really? That movie is 80 years old... They're for movies made THAT year, and of course leave it to a moron like Trump not to realize that.

    Centrists, neocons and neolibs are to blame for the whole Iraqi ordeal.

    Centrists and neolibs are honestly one and the same in my book. Neolibs just pretend to be lefties when in all actuality they really aren't.

     

    This whole thing is the reason why we need actual left-wing representation in our government. It's pretty much entirely been held by the right for decades.

  6. Lowering taxes (especially on the wealthy as Trump has done) and spending more on the military always equals a bigger deficit, when will these right-wing idiots learn that? I mean that's what got us IN THIS MESS IN THE FIRST PLACE. We spent 16% of our entire budget on the military, in 2015...

    And that was 2015. I bet it's closer to 20% now... :dry: May even be over 20%...

    What's worse is there's people proud of this irrationally large war machine we've built.

    I do like how yo put Iowa and Nebraska as A+ yet these states are extremely conservative. Though we are "right" I guess we are not FAR "right" like Alabama and Louisiana. 

     

    Iowa really isn't that much of a right-wing state the way I see it and Nebraska generally has good stats across the board. I really did not make this list with the intent of playing politics.

     

    Lousiana's problem isn't about right, left, authoritarian, or libertarian, it's crime and corruption. It SUCKS to live there, period. As for Alabama, it's downright inhospitable for LGBT people like myself.

    What’s wrong with DC? Too expensive to live in, horribly humid summer weather, the crime? Or something political related? :huh: 

    DC is very liberal and you rated liberal states quite high, as well as the surrounding states of MD and VA, so I’m a bit confused. 

    Combination of price, crime, bad weather, and it pretty much by default being the most corrupt city in the nation.

  9. When it comes to VPNs, I find The Hated One's video on it rather informative:

     

    His answer in a nutshell is that VPNs are a good idea, but A, you have to really research the VPN you're getting into, and B, you can't just use a VPN alone and think that you're perfectly safe and anonymous. Just using a VPN alone isn't really going to make you all that much safer, because only the traffic TO the VPN is actually encrypted. After that, it could easily be hacked/forced from the VPN. The best thing to do is to layer it with other measures like using DuckDuckGo instead of Google and Firefox instead of Chrome/IE and the et cetera. And also, DON'T. Use. Facebook. I mean he has an entire video on how you can stay perfectly safe and anonymous on the internet, but this is conversation is about VPNs.

  10. Frankly conditional love isn't love at all, at least in my opinion. :dry: I'm not going to stop loving my boyfriend, hypothetically, just because he has doesn't have enough money, we don't do quite enough you know what, or he decides to do something with his life that I wish he didn't. Even if we had to break up I wouldn't stop loving him. :)

  11. Yeah this is totally insane, and it bothered me in school too. :unamused: Especially considering most of the time it's literally ONE person that causes the teacher to decide to do this stupid s***. What's even dumber is that the whole point of a punishment is for it to dissuade people from doing something directly. This whole punishment totally goes against this by lessening and lessening the meaning of itself by its over-enforcement. :baconmane:

    As a California boi, I definitely agree with said state being at le bottom.

    There are VERY few things I like about the state.

    I say Washington is the better California TBH.

    Just now, Cash In said:

    I'm not American, but I approve of the placement of Washington :-P.

    Well, I was born there, and spent my first 11 years of my life there, so I may have a little bit of a bias. :twi:
