Everyone in each subset of the population does suffer yes.
But think about the facts that single white men are the least appreciated group when it comes to handouts from others. Think about the fact that men aren't allowed to show emotion. Think about the fact that if a man talks down to a woman its seen as a abuse, but a woman talking down to a man is perfectly fine. Women control all of the power in the dating market. Women have the option of marrying "up" where they can sit in their shitty barely-more-than-minimum-wage jobs and if they marry a guy who is wealthy enough they will live just fine. Then if they divorce the guy they get half of his assets in the divorce and probably possession of any children involved as well.
I am sure you have a difficult life as do millions of other women. Especially in third world countries, women have it incredibly difficult. But here in the US I work in a female dominated environment (I'm literally the only male in my whole department) and the amount of entitlement I hear is ridiculous. I'm struggling to make ends meet on the meager salary they pay us, while these girls gab all fucking day about their hundred dollar hair apppointments, their trips every two months to resorts, brag about their brand new cars, and whatever stupid bullshit they bought on Amazon last night.
Why would the person in charge of Hillary Clinton's tech team post on Reddit asking for advice about how to clean hard drives of criminal evidence?
These people have been committing crimes and lying about them so long, and going unpunished for so long, that they forget what evidence is. They don't realize that taking a laptop in for repairs and then leaving it there and then having your name come up in the news repeatedly may raise some red flags.
They will claim toxic masculinity, but it's a subtle admission that women have it easier in the modern age than men do. If male privilege was a real thing they believed in, then no parent would ever want their male child to give up that advantage.
Imagine being that lawyer. You have Hunter Biden as a client and Day One you ask him "is there any physical evidence out there that someone might be able to get a hold of and use against you?" Hunter says no.
Then this story breaks. The lawyer was probably saying "fuck my life" at that point.
What's interesting is they had these emails and photos forever and waited until now...some will say October Surprise. I'll say it comes right after Melania's so-called "good friend" reveals secret taped phone calls. Maybe Trump figured "you know what, you wanna play dirty, let's play dirty."
"Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group – excuse me, excuse me, I saw the same pictures you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name."
Later answering another question in the same press conference:
"I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists because they should be condemned totally"
I will never understand the people who do this. My number one rule is to assume that anything I write to someone will be shown to someone else in the most negative manner possible. Maybe that's pessimistic, but it has probably saved my ass in the past. I won't ever trash talk anyone in an email or a text message. All it takes is for the person you are emailing to have a falling out with you and suddenly everything you said is public knowledge.
You would be surprised at the hard work a lot of people go through in order to not actually do anything meaningful for society. Had a teacher once who told the story of a student who cheated on a test by writing notes on the back of a water bottle label and bringing it into class that day. That's some serious creativity and a lot of effort to avoid doing something like...studying and trying to retain facts.
History is filled to the brim with rich and powerful people who went too far in order to get just a bit more money and fell face first into a pit of scandal because of it. Watch "The Smartest Guys in the Room" one day. It's about the Enron scandal and they have these guys on tape saying and doing some seriously twisted and complicated things to keep their company from tanking. CEOs making millions who could have just leveraged their experience and gotten an executive job elsewhere before Enron collapsed went to MASSIVE lengths to avoid having to do any actual work.
I have to wonder if someone else didn't bring in the laptop, either doing a favor for Hunter or in an effort to expose information on it. Did he live in Delaware at the time? Either he was way coked out of his mind and completely forgot it existed or he had some associate drop it off in the middle of the day and the associate was too lazy or negligent to remember it.
I will never understand the sheer greed of politicians. While still inappropriate, it would be far more reasonable and explainable for an elected Senator to pull some strings and get their family on the board of directors for some local company in their state / district and have them set up with a cozy little 150k salary for doing nothing all day. Most Americans would be annoyed about it but they wouldn't do much about it in the long run.
No instead they have to go for the big game. Hunter Biden can't fuel his coke habit on only 150k a year so they have to go further and get him a multi million dollar gig doing nothing by pulling strings with corrupt foreign governments. So then a huge scandal like this leaks and causes them all to scamper into their hidey holes and lash out in fear.
Its not difficult to avoid scandal and difficult situations as a politician. Just don't be fucking corrupt. Too bad that's a fantasy in today's world.
Pretty sure it was calculated to be released after Trump pressed Biden for answers regarding Hunter at the debates. Since Joe is trying to claim the Hunter scandal has been debunked by the major news outlets, you can release this bomb to show he is flat out lying about it.
Too bad that 80% of Americans will never see these leaks.
People fucking freaked out when he said we had nuclear subs off the coast of North Korea, acting as if it was some major national security leak. We probably have at least one nuclear sub parked off the coast of every major foreign power, and even if we didn't the thing could be in port at San Diego and still potentially hit North Korea with the range that modern missiles have.
The dying words argument is proof that the left lives in a fantasy world. We live in a world of rules and laws. My dying words could be that "nobody should ever fight again" but that shit ain't happening.
It's bad enough to have justices advocating from the bench. Now we have them advocating from the grave.
I'm in a decent position financially but if Biden wins and decides he's going to shut down the entire economy again then my industry is gonna crash. We are already struggling even in a "semi" post-COVID world. Had to lay off something like 25% of our workforce already.
And if my specific industry crashes then there will be hundreds of thousands up to a couple million people across the US who will be jobless. I will never forgive the Democrats for practically throwing people out on the streets all for a flu with a .02% death rate (and along among the most elderly and sick population).
Sometimes I like to believe that there is a little kernel of truth somewhere in the news story that they just blow up into whatever narrative they want to tell.
But deep down I know they just straight make up bullshit.
You're being a little bit sensitive about that. The show is called iZombie and it's based off a comic book. She was accidentally turned into a zombie because one bit her and so she has a craving for brains. Because of this she "inherits" the person's memory, and because she works in a morgue examining people who died of suspicious causes, she starts helping the police department solve murders.
It's a very goofy crime drama show that doesn't "glorify" cannibalism in any way. Not exactly compelling television to be honest, but it's like one out of a thousand other zombie or cop drama shows out there, just combined into one.
They literally cannot see it. If you were to show this video to them, they would find 200 minor discrepancies in it and call it a conspiracy theory and write it off and move on with their day. Their brains have been so perfectly trained to the point where anything anti-Biden is met with a knee-jerk reaction with "right wing conspiracy, Orange Man Bad, racism bad!"
The guy who "voted for Hillary last time, but has voted Republican in the past." What the fuck does that mean? The guy had to be at least in his 40s. Means he probably threw a vote for Dubya when he was running for re-election and didn't even look into the election.
Or he votes Democrat almost exclusively downticket but randomly votes for the Republican candidate for Secretary of Agriculture or some shit.
Ever since I watched The Office I cant take it seriously when someone says "close your eyes and imagine what it was like."
Also sort of an outdated terminology in our modern world. Why would I close my eyes to try and remember something when I can just search for the video of the event online and relive it?
No it didn't teach us jack shit. Are we going to shut down businesses and our entire economy everytime a novel virus escapes into the world?
The next time another pandemic comes you will have half the world's population saying we don't need to do anything because Covid was a scam, and the other half will want us all to lock ourselves in our rooms for months all over again.
Same reason that the majority of "trans" people go from being men to women.
Joe would ask way better questions too.
"Mr. President a lot of people are concerned about Antifa and the ongoing violence what do you have to say about that?"
"Well its concerning Joe and my administration is there all the governors need to do is ask, Joe, but they have to ask, you know that."
"I do, I do....did you see that guy accidentally hit that moose with his car? Holy shit Jamie pull that video up."
The pre existing conditions argument is stupid to begin with. First of all, there may be a lot of people with "pre existing conditions" but that's not the same as being uninsurable. Only people who have chronic AND severe problems would be considered uninsurable by a company.
And second of all, why shouldn't people who drain more out of the system have to pay more into it? I understand it sucks to be born with a genetic illness and have to pay more insurance, but you're also costing everyone in the market more money. Its the sad reality we have to deal with and until we find to train doctors as easily as we train fry cooks, healthcare will never be entirely "affordable" to everyone.
