  1. I hope no one seriously believes those ridiculous ratings numbers on Twitter for this funeral. :rotfl: It was an ordinary monday in Canada. No one was talking about this funeral (apart from the media), no one was watching this funeral, sigh of relief from just about everyone that this masquerade was finally over. She was a significant historical figure of the last century by her longevity on the throne, i give her that. nothing more, nothing less. In an ideal world, Canada would change its constitution to finally get rid of the monarchy. The majority of the population  desire it but our cultural and identity conflicts between Canada and Quebec mean that the federal government will never dare to reopen the constitution since it will have to include compromises for province of Quebec. Going back to the excess of everything about the queen we just went through, I still can't believe people lined up for 10, 12 or 14 hours to spend 10 seconds in front of a stranger's grave. :doh:Ridiculous.

    Exactly! This "let's blame ourselves the democrats" narrative needs to stop. Voter turnout has been at an all time high.

    It's not our collective fault that the entire U.S. system was designed to make sure slave-owning states with low "white" voting populations don't lose power. 

    If there are specific swing states / districts where we have lost seats in congress because Democrats decided not to vote because the candidate wasn't "woke" enough, then let's talk about that (we won't because it's not a thing).  

     

    This.

    Since 2016, a slice of American progressives have been spending their time attacking the Democratic Party and their politics instead of devoting their energy to fighting the real enemy, the Republican Party and more precisely its fundamentalist slice which has taken control and is reshaping the country at frightening speed. In a two-party system, the lesser evil to block this movement is to vote and support the Democratic party even though we all know they are not a very progressive party, but in the context of the American political system they are the lesser evil . Anyway, this discussion was relevant in 2016, today it is already too late. The Republicans have reshaped the political system so that they have control and do what they want.

    Oh please. The Catholic Church are the very LAST folks who should be talking about the concern for children. They're just pissed that more and more folks generationally are not interested in the Christian model of the nuclear family.

    Then, there's like over 8 billion people on the planet...more than what the planet can actually provide for (and whose remaining resources are pretty much the basis for all on-going world conflict). Then there's the issue of what we are doing to this planet, and where it's going (politically/climate change/etc.). The last thing this planet needs is more children, particularly those being had just for the sake of it.

    I understand why people who truly want children may want one that's actually biologically from them, but I've always found it incredibly hypocritical that we put all this massive focus on pushing for animal adoption...but that same sentiment is never given to human life. Why not take that sentiment and put it towards pushing humanity, particularly straight people, to actually care for all the children unwanted and cast aside.

    Then there's the issue that so many can't actually afford to raise children.

    This.

  4. In recent years, there has been an alarming normalization of far-right speeches all over the Occident and this opens the door to an increase in these appalling crimes. When I look at the decline of the right to abortion in different countries, of the increase in feminicides, homophobic and xenophobic crimes, I am particularly furious that rights groups and associations allow themselves to be infiltrated by Wokes who discredit and hijack the discourse and the actions of these groups with their trivial issues instead of allowing them to do their necessary work. Acquired rights are recent and without constant vigilance, they can disappear at the speed of light.

  5. No, because Democrats don't want to make sure they lose the next midterm and the next presidential election. No administration has and will seriously touch on this issue, because they are far too afraid of the political consequences. After the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012, it became clear that nothing serious would ever happen about it. If the killing of children hasn't raised enough outrage to put pressure on politicians, nothing will. Mass killings are now part of the United States DNA and are seen as sad but inevitable.

  6. :rotfl:I cannot believe that there are still people to defend the "record" of this disgusting evil man who manipulated the facts, lied continuously, walked hand in hand with the dictators of this world, flouting the laws and democracy a little more every day. Well no, he did not go to war with any country (although his irresponsible twits about Iran and North Korea could have turned out to be a disaster as they ignored any sense of common diplomacy)because he was far too busy stoking the hatred, bigotry and racism of his supporters bringing his own country to the brink of civil war.
