I aint hating. The two shows that come maybe sorta close to the American experience is Futurama and Bobs Burgers. But I got no hate on Simpsons. I would like to think that someone who works at a nuclear plant and someone who works part time might be able to afford what the Simpsons has got. Maybe that’s what they should have? I dunno. 🤷♂️
One side is based on commodity and tangible goods.
The other side is based on services and finance.
China’s capability is more material.
Another is lousy with fictitious capital and if reports can be believed; they are running out of ammo so fast that fighting industrial warfare has exposed their weakness as not being able to keep up.
It’s Bitcoin and youtube videos vs. Assembly line work and bullets. 🤷♂️.
Unless the USA has some ungodly unfathomable stockpile of weapons that matter… 🙄 They might. But the F35 is one hell of an expensive ruse to get their enemies to believe the west is weaker than they are.
Just keep asking them how the US military and the western intelligence community benefited them.
Ask them the connection between their lives improving and the recent middle eastern adventures.
How did the war in Vietnam benefit them? How does embargoes on Cuba, DPRK, and Iran directly benefit them.
When was the last time US military violence made women and minorities safer overseas?
Ask for concrete examples.
Then when they get into talking shit about China; remind them that despite Russia reforming to liberal democracy; Russia is now more OVERTLY engaged in war with the west more than they were as the USSR. Ask them if they think they would be any safer if China reformed or if they think it would be better that a much more hyper nationalist and hawkish party in China took over through “fair elections” and if they think it would be good for the Chinese government to be overthrown by our spy programs. Because the Mujahideen was our friends until our friends decided to kill 3 to 4 thousand Americans and drop some buildings on our heads.
This is actually pretty normal. Female personnel become pregnant and militaries do have maternity clothing.
“Why is it camo though?”
Because it’s cheaper and easier to get from a single reliable supplier. Also…it is a war. Being in camo may be slightly helpful in the event a pregnant military person might have to get moving in the face of danger.
This isnt an indication that the ukraine is so desperate they’re sending out pregnant people into the meat grinder.
Dude… What the shit?
You know… There comes a time when you start seeing numbers next to dollar signs and conclude that idiots are just pulling numbers out of their ass.
What part of that trillion is even real???
They were removed and moaning about sending billions to the Ukraine but you just found a trillion dollars in the couch cushions for MORE military shit?
…This shit is straight up fake. THAT money aint even real.
Im not suggesting that I have the synthesis between protection from terroristic speech and free speech.
I cant come up with anything that would satisfy the liberal notion of free speech.
So I can only say this. It really doesnt matter what social organization or structure you find yourself in. One way or another; anyone can say fighting words. Anyone can say something that invites confrontation from various agents both private and public.
There is no material, functional way to have free speech unless we get to a point where ALL speech is powerless to affect change one way or another.
Free speech is an illusion. There will always be fighting words. There will always be speech that requires one set of folks to act.
So while I sympathize with Medhurst in this instance; I cant bring myself to imagine future societies would tolerate mass lies of agitation and political wrecking.
If you want to see the epitome of free speech, then look at Fox News. That’s a perfect picture of free speech. Ask yourself if it’s worth it. Ask yourself if you want something like Fox News in your future.
I got another way to deal with libs.
“If you were serious about anything you say, you would be talking to a recruiter about enlisting so the Russians can kill you instead of trying to make me feel bad about supporting China or Russia. Hail Satan.”
I will never convince them otherwise. Maybe the horrors of a Russian volley will change their mind.
Man… That’s a shame. And it doesnt bode well for national security. Not a good idea to codify such things; giving minorities and excuse to be separatist and take the side of the west.
Again… Cuba is the example in my view. Cant have bullshit idpol color revolutions if everyone is included in the revolution. Ya dig?
I hope I live to see the day where America understands that ANY shipments or trades or bargains with Cuba gets fucked with between Cuba and the rising world; then Russia and China will push the fucking red buttons and delete this capitalist orb into the phantom realm.
I want Cuba to get EVERYTHING they deserve and more. And I want the US navy and coast guard to be fucking pants shitting terrified at the mere thought of what would happen if they tried sanctioning or embargoing Cuba.
The revolution will win! IN OUR LIFETIMES!!
My mind went straight to me getting text messages from the DPRK.
