Youd be called racist lol
I mean, sure. if I recounted it that way.
Sorry I shoudnt be finding that funny
I find it funny, too.
Id cross the street if I saw a group of youths
I think it's funny when people talk about microaggressions like that
knowing that microaggression would've spared me a somewhat traumatic experience.
Dude its easy being virtuous about something that does not affect you personally
Then again theres some retards who still spout it after being burned.
basically, one of them made a hoot right behind me to get my attention, they had circled me. One of the guys that was behind me swung at me
I caught the movement coming from my right side and moved with it.
Like that one who refused to report her rape
oh, first someone knocked the pizza that I was carrying for a delivery out of my hands.
then someone swung
Forgot about the pizza.
waste of a damn ~~Goodfellas~~ Wiseguys pizza.
(You can google these locations to figure out where it happened, lol)
Excuse me! I was wrong!
It was Wiseguys. Goodfellas is a Dallas restaurant.
Jesus those names are synonyms
Yeah. I know.
Fuck me for following my instincts yeah?
I avoid groups of youths, not blacks.
If it were a group of black elderly men id stick to my path.
From that point forward, I was incredibly nervous about anyone passing me for a while.
I still generally carry a gun or a knife in my car with me, out of sight.
As a pizza deliveryman are you allowed to be armed on the job?
I treat it as don't ask, don't tell.
Technically, the arrangement I work under
I'm my own boss.
If they want to dictate whether the second amendment applies to me on the job or not, they can pay my worker's compensation.
But since I'm given no such guarantee, my life and property is in my own hands.
So based man
Id say that if I end up in the us
Pay me less, let me have a gun, and they dont need to pay me comp for injuries sustained.
If only the healthcare there wasnt memeably expensive
It's gotten to that point as a result of government meddling, mostly.
If the FDA weren't operating as a protectionist arm of the pharmaceutical companies, things would likely be different.
One of the main reason medicine is mass produced and STILL expensive is that certain companies have monopolies on treatments.
Some of the standards required for FDA approval are prohibitively expensive, as well.
Does not work. Its a buisness and they charge by how much someone will pay
There are multiple issues with the healthcare system...
That someone who pays is now a corporation, and not just an individual.
Where does the price go?
Price goes up.
Well its the govt, they never got good at spending responsibly
When you buy Health Insurance, you mitigate the risk of illness or injury by putting the financial burden on an insurance company.
As such, you are no longer the customer.
The insurance company is.
Combine that with a mandate that EVERYONE has insurance now
The solutions are few, and they're ethically gray.
Add to that that hospitals pass on the costs to the customer (they don't really give prices, just costs).
You have to consider that there's an inverse to supply and demand, as well.
You've got supply, the hospitals.
But the demand for hospital care is a matter of life or death.
It's just weird that hospitals don't set prices, it's more insurance that does via the way things are handled.
And yet, we've given the health care system entirely over to insurance agencies.
It's even worse that most insurance set prices are based off of medicare prices.
So, indirectly, it's actually priced by government
Also, Medicare often can't even afford to pay it's bills.
Many doctors won't accept medicare or medicaid, because they bounce checks.
It's actually because Insurances set prices to pay better than Medicare.
I need to stop looking at maps of DC.
I'm getting hungry thinking about Wiseguy Pizza, &Pizza, and Cava Grill. -_-
Medicare has the worst rates, but they set them first and the insurance companies base their stuff off of Medicare prices.
Look up English food. That should stop the hunger
ew... greasy food
Delicious greasy food.
You back the fuck away from my Fish and Chips with that 'Tendies' crap.
Ughh the food here looks disgusting
But why does it taste so good
Good summer food:
Is that teriyaki salmon on rice?
nice, juicy, fatty unagi
What's the sauce, though?
Usually a sweet eel sauce
Eel sauce is sweeter than teriyaki
Looks pretty close to a Teriyaki.
I could probably dig that.
That looks fucking delicious.
the salt and vinegar
I went to Virginia several weeks ago for a wedding
Rural virginia. Like, within view of Whitetop Mountain.
Damn thatvsounds amazing. Windy there?
Blueridge or more Tidewater?
oh, not tidewater
It was relatively cool.
But the food there
Dear lord, I don't think I've ever had more bland food.
Whats murican food like?
Besides burgers of course
One thing to consider about the United States
Too be honest id find the food there bland as hell
You can't judge 'American' food by one area.
Everything here is packed with msg and spices
Even our barbeque sauces are named after regions they came from.
If you could get to Davis (or Thomas, I forgot which it was) in WV, there's an artist who sometimes cooks stuff for customers in his studio. It's pretty good if you ever get the chance
I guess so, big place
Actually, I think it was Thomas
You'd have to try Memphis BBQ, Carolina BBQ, Kansas City BBQ, Texas BBQ, etc. etc.
God, can you name the differences?
Skip the Cincinatti Chili though
Well, Kansas City bbq tends to be a bit more sweet
Memphis, I believe tends to be more smokey-flavoured
Texas is known to have a spicy kick
Carolina tends to be a little vinegary
But what you've got to consider about all of this
South Carolina is mustardy, north Alabama is mayonasey
is that the United States is continent-sized.
We don't talk about Alabama.
Cheese biscuits are actually muffins
First time I traveled out of state
I picked this pamphlet up.
Couldn't stop laughing at it.
but I've never eaten at any of those restaurants. You can never be too safe. 😄
Can't tell if it's like assembling Exodia inside your colon or something...
Actually I think I ate at Dreamland BBQ one time, but I was a vegetarian so i just skeptically ate the bread.
Dreamland is actively bad. I don't know why people like it. Then again, I don't like ribs
Granted if I'm in Central Alabama, I go more for the Greek food
Okay, you're going to have to PM me a guide to Central Alabama greek food.
It's more that the region wasn't populated until after the Civil War when Birmingham was founded for steel. All the Greek and Lebanese immigrants decided to not work in the mines and factories and instead made the food. So the long standing food tradition is all Mediterranean. So the old hotdog stands, Barbecue and stuff all have Greek influence
Just an off-topic; there's a few threads on 4chan right now accusing archive.org of changing their archives for the NYTimes. re: their statements regarding Roseanne's firing. https://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/181076362#p181076362
This isn't actually the case. The caption they're saying wasn't changed; they're confusing the metadata snippet used for Twitter, Facebook, Google, etc., with the caption beneath the image. The metadata snippet, which can be found by viewing the source of this archive from May 30th, has remained the same. https://archive.fo/D37Nt
It's still a statement that seems contradictory in light of the Jeong hiring and statements made around it, but nonetheless there has been no memory-holing on archive.org in this case.
@sevvierose Frankly and bluntly, anyone using 4chan as a credible source is probably beyond help.
Certainly. I just thought to share that here.
So, anti-vaxxers and that shit might be fake news.
I made a short video about it.
Baisically the conspiracy I might have figured out goes like this (short summary): The anti-vaxxing movement started by companies that make vaccines
Step 1: Start an anti-vax movement by spreading the word as a blogger that no one knows anything about.
Step 2: Some people that did not vaccinate are now gonna justify their decision with the anti-vaxxing movement.
Step 3: Pay media to fear monger about anti-vaxxers
Step 4: People are now willing to get mandatory vaccinations into law.
Step 5: Lobby and make sure even vaccines that not that many take and don't work as good (for example the yearly flu vaccine, it only works about 50%)
Step 6: Extreme profit because now everyone has to get vaccines and more than they got before, the state has to pay so we can come with bullshit reason to increase the prices and people won't complain because the state pays
What made me think of that you ask?
The number that get vaccinated haven't dropped for the past 15 years or so, yet you never heard from the media that people that don't vaccinate are gonna make shit come back
You sound like vee.
I can assure you that I am not romanian, I am a swede
your gypsy tricks won't fool us Vee
I don't vaccinate personally
I don't vaccinate others, I'm not a doctor
So what happened in Portland yesterday? Last I saw the Police were telling everyone to leave and people were doing so but there's pictures being thrown around on Leftie twitter of someone getting head injuries from what looks like gas round
thats really about the extent we have heard and seen
The narrative that I've heard is that police were fairly competent at keeping the demonstrators separate, the lefties got agitated that they weren't able to stop the righties and started throwing shit at cops. Cops weren't going to take any shit and started clearing out the lefties. By this point people were so overwhelmed by the heat that they lost most of their willingness to fight and just went home.
in other words, pussies
Seen a couple of news flashes about "clashes between Antifascist protesters and police" today but I dunno how credible they are
well its as creditable as the very chat we are in right now
Maybe they should call them what they are
Dude I'm a Commie and I refuse to be compared to those larping Trotskyites
Pffft, kommunists are mad, Real marxism is the way to go
Nah, just trolling
You are pro commie, that does not make you antifa. Im pro equal rights, that does not make me a feminist.
I think what Marx really wanted was complete decentralisation, at least that is how he talks in his literature
I dont think anyone can have any claim as to what he really wanted.
You know, like who owns linux? Nobody, you could say that the community that uses it owns it
He only has that book and has nothing behind him besides being a neckbeard philosopher with a big idea.
But back in Marxs time everyone either worked on or used everything that was produced
That is not to say that he has no value intrinsicly.
What do you mean "that book"?
He wrote many books, his most famous books "Das Kapital" (because it has 4 volumes that are each at least 500 pages) were his most famous
And how many people are aware of that?
Im only pointing out hes famous for "that one book"
Why do you ask? Because authority and employers worked to censor, later prevent people from getting them, later it was big news when the poor censored guy released a new book
That is sad, because obviously they haven't read that book then
How many commies do you think actually read that stuff? Probably around the same proportion of christians who read the bible.
It literally starts with "I will not go through x in this book series because I have already done that countless of times and in many of my previous books"
I agree on that
Its the same really, nobody wants the effort to go through that, but they think they know enough to make everyone think they are the authority on that subject
I will always point out inaccuracies people quote from the bible. And I actually did read the bible. Not these days, its been years
From almost completing the first volume of "Das Kapital", I can assure you he has nothing against the free market
Well, at least not in the first volume, he does mention the free market but only in how it actually fixes value on products and is self regulating
My issue isnt with him. Its the selective memory about what he purports to belive.
What does purports mean?
People know the commie manifesto, not the kapita
Omfg... I hate that book
Worst. Summary. Ever
If someone writes something, I cant say that he beleives that. Im not him.
Same I can say he lies, I am not him. He might, he might not.
What is important is the conclusion people get from it.
Not what the author meant specifically when he wrote that passage at that moment.
Baisically, it's like a summary of atheism like this: we want to rid of religioun in politics.
But said in a way that sounds like you want to masacre religious ppl
That is how weird the commie manifesto is written
but it is after all 60 tiny pages with huge text that summarises thousands of thousands of pages from other books
Now that is fascinating
Its a summary, but a badly compiled one in your opinion?
Well people dont have the time.
Extremely badly in a sense
If it was to at least explain what it means with a lot of shit, it needs at least 3 a4 pages on each thing
Otherwise you could draw a very weird conclusion compared to the literature
For example: We (communists) want to abolish the family. Now, we do not want to abolish it to remover families altogether, what we want to abolish is the family you (the bourgeois) know of.
People take that out of it's context considering it's time and try to apply it in today, in which case they get the impression that here should be no homeschooling and society is the parents
Read other literature where they, Marx and Engels, talk about the family and what they want to change, they explain some fundamental differences between the working classes families and the bourgeois families
Thats the issue if it takes thousands of pages.
TO come to one conclusion
And then crush it down to double digits
and in short, most the points are that the labourers kids should have equall opportunity as the bourgeois kids
And considering that time period, the summary I gave wouldn't work
Then how did it become what it is now?
People forget that a different time period must be considered not only as to why something was worded the way it was, but also why it wasn't worded in a, in our time, better way
How the hell did it turn from empowering the worker to subjugating the population
As you said, ppl are lazy and just read the manifesto
And then someone on top realises if he cherry picks pages from Das Kapital he can get ppl on his side to help him get more power
Jesus its like the koran
I've met communists that are like "I have only read some parts of Das Kapital" and coincidentally it os the parts in which the state is the hero and the companies are evil. Never a single part that praises parts of capitalism
Or that distinguishes percieved capitalism from actual capitalism
He does explain how the free market, on the contrary to how it is percieved, is separate from capitalism
Have you heard of a commie that is part of a big commie group ever say anything like that?
They are always against the free market because it is capitalistic (in a russian accent)
Ive never met a commie like that. You know, one that knows that much. But then again, Im not gonna pretend I read Marx's work
You consider me a commie?
I didnt say that
Like I said I never met a commie that knows that much.
Much like I never met a christian who knows the bible beyond memorizing verses
The people I find more knowledgable on relligion ive met are people who dont practice it as much
I would probably consider myself a Marxist if it wasn't for those that already do. Don't wanna be associated with those shets
As they are more likely to question it
And Id considermyself ancap if it wernt for those who already do
I'd say I am a decentralist
To be honest, govt seizing the means of production does not scream decentralization
The reason real communisms haven't existed is because there has always been a state. They want to rid of the state
But so called communists want to first make the state own EVERYTHING, and then rid of the state. Good luck making someone with all that power give it up
This article basically flat out says younger mothers are no less happy but "have greater gender inequality, the horror!" (As if it is bad that a woman wants to specialize in caring for a child) and that children are part to blame for the wage gap in a more round about way
It also basically says "when money is not the goal, having a family is more important". As if that is a bad thing
Which is true
Yeah, kids are expensive. But like, since when is specializing and family bad things
Since cultural cancer came
When both nazis and commies agree on something, you should take it into concideration. Both of them thought that motherhood should be praised, unlike today when it is almost frowned upon. But they did think very differently about the family and other related stuff
Well, with today I mean todays elite
More or less
i think society got too strict with its standards, forcing a pushback in the opposite direction. Now we are reaching the opposite extreme and the push back is building
dave bautista punches nazis what a hero
GoG3 is gonna tank because of politics. Perhaps not a bad thing because there is some pretty SJW movies coming down the pipes in the MCU
