It's a steadily declining influence

2017-11-01 23:51:41 UTC

Is it? Because it was recently put into a bunch of states.

2017-11-01 23:51:46 UTC

Not the other way around.

2017-11-01 23:52:09 UTC

That's interesting. Do you have a source for that?

2017-11-01 23:53:18 UTC

It might've been in Louisiana.

2017-11-01 23:53:25 UTC

Gonna have to look it up again.

2017-11-01 23:55:47 UTC

That would make sense

2017-11-01 23:56:10 UTC

Not a threat to national security though

2017-11-01 23:56:14 UTC


2017-11-01 23:56:44 UTC

Now who's on the wrong side of the fence?
It not being related to national security doesn't make it any less of a problem.

2017-11-01 23:57:14 UTC
2017-11-02 00:14:56 UTC

To me it does

2017-11-02 00:15:06 UTC

National security is my primary concern

2017-11-02 00:15:22 UTC

Shit. Then why not give up all your rights then.

2017-11-02 00:15:45 UTC

It's easier to secure the nation if no one has any rights.

2017-11-02 00:20:38 UTC

It's not necessary

2017-11-02 00:21:13 UTC

And I would argue against the long-term security of an Authoritarian state

2017-11-02 00:24:43 UTC

I don't understand what religion and national security have to do with eachother, good or bad.

2017-11-02 00:28:44 UTC

A global caliphate would certainly compromise national security

2017-11-02 00:36:16 UTC

But the original issue was religion in the United States

2017-11-02 00:38:42 UTC

No it was a comparison between religion in the US and radical Islam

2017-11-02 00:43:13 UTC

Soyaman went on to make that comparison to try to reinforce his point, and while I don't agree the two can be compared, I think the original issue still stands that religion in the United States still poses many problems even if they aren't necessarily threats to national security.

2017-11-02 00:44:44 UTC

I agree with that

2017-11-02 00:44:53 UTC

I'm no fan of delusion

2017-11-02 00:51:33 UTC

I conceded the point that it's not a comparison to radical islam.

2017-11-02 00:57:58 UTC

I know you have, I'm not trying to assign viewpoints to anybody. I'm just going back over what happened and trying to untangle the topics here, since they were getting a bit muddied together.

2017-11-02 01:03:22 UTC

Religion poisons everything

2017-11-02 01:05:18 UTC

I agree 100%

2017-11-02 01:06:16 UTC

Unfortunately religion seems to be symptomatic of a deeper flaw that is faith

2017-11-02 01:51:12 UTC

i think religion is a symptom of humans natural tribal desire for heirarchy combined with the best explanation of the universe a bunch of stone age people could create, thats been perpetuated throughout history by the mutually beneficial relationship between religion and state

2017-11-02 01:51:54 UTC

I guess I mean mostly in its current embodiment

2017-11-02 01:52:00 UTC

there literally wasn't anything close to a better explanation available, there are probably more atheists alive now than in the rest of human history

2017-11-02 01:52:12 UTC

Once the statist and scientific aspects have been replaced

2017-11-02 01:52:29 UTC

its an empty hull of blind faith and god of the gaps arguments

2017-11-02 01:52:34 UTC

There are still foundations of wishful thinking, i.e. afterlife

2017-11-02 01:54:35 UTC

creationist arguments after you boil off the long dead bullshit you're just left with "look how pretty the sunrise is" etc and misuse of the words "chance" and "theory"

2017-11-02 01:55:29 UTC

Masturbating to their own awe

2017-11-02 01:56:35 UTC

i had an interesting chat with an ex-atheist catholic traditionalist on poldare and basically all his arguments were based on a fundamental denial of objective truth in favor of his feels

2017-11-02 01:56:59 UTC

much along the same ideological lines of early fascism, unironic feels before reals

2017-11-02 01:58:42 UTC

A tenuous comparison imo, but devaluing logic and reason is contrary to any productive system of thought

2017-11-02 01:59:24 UTC

his justification was decidedly vague shit like "experiences i couldnt explain" etc

2017-11-02 02:00:19 UTC


2017-11-02 02:00:26 UTC

God loves those gaps

2017-11-02 05:03:05 UTC

They had some pretty good prop

2017-11-02 05:04:27 UTC

some gr8 b8 m8

2017-11-02 05:05:06 UTC


2017-11-02 15:08:29 UTC

tax policy highlights its a good start but the need is to take a swing at the corperate tax rate

2017-11-03 12:12:39 UTC

There's a certain irony behind Trump being ridiculed for being so egotistical when so many Dems are willing to throw their own party under the bus for a few extra minutes of fame

2017-11-03 12:13:20 UTC

Hillary's entire book (and refusal to *go away and let the Dems regroup*), Donna's "it wasn't *my* fault!" expose` and so on and so on

2017-11-03 12:15:03 UTC

Let them the sooner they go away the better

2017-11-03 12:55:51 UTC

they won't.

2017-11-03 12:56:40 UTC

Hillary will carry on doing her thing whilst the rest of the party will maneuver to position themselves behind the next frontrunner

2017-11-03 12:57:05 UTC

In which case Donna's article makes sense if she's trying to get back in the good graces of the Berniebros

2017-11-03 12:57:50 UTC

Because he'd get some serious traction if he showed up for the 2020 primaries

2017-11-03 13:00:45 UTC

If they have sense they sould run Tulsi Gabbard

If she stfu about $15 per hour, she could even win

2017-11-03 13:57:06 UTC

That is for the general election

2017-11-03 13:57:25 UTC

You got to throw people a bone in the primary

2017-11-03 15:20:22 UTC

that is a fair accessment

Need to see what happens next year first. Kid Rock for Senate!

Tulsi's religion might be an issue for some but she probs wouldn't get those votes anyway

2017-11-03 17:10:55 UTC


2017-11-03 17:12:28 UTC

2017-11-03 19:24:26 UTC

Partisan hack is the most fitting description

2017-11-03 19:25:01 UTC

that's such a

2017-11-03 19:25:06 UTC

description though

2017-11-03 19:25:29 UTC

edgy hipster descriptions or bust

2017-11-03 19:25:30 UTC

If the shoe fits...

2017-11-03 19:25:47 UTC

Shoes are racist

2017-11-03 19:26:37 UTC

Cenk told me that thinking racism is funny is another form of racism

2017-11-03 19:26:39 UTC


2017-11-03 19:27:03 UTC

Surely dem whitefolk came and stole them from the ancient Mesopotamians

2017-11-03 19:27:34 UTC

Destiny told me that assuming someone is joking about racism is racist in of itself

2017-11-03 19:27:37 UTC


2017-11-03 19:27:43 UTC

Oh shit

2017-11-03 19:27:52 UTC

Did you just assume my humour?

2017-11-03 19:27:58 UTC

I thought saying I wasn't racist is racist

2017-11-03 19:28:05 UTC

fuck off racist

2017-11-03 19:28:11 UTC

I think mentioning race at all is racist

2017-11-03 19:28:14 UTC

If you're white

2017-11-03 19:28:16 UTC

goddamn racists everywhere

2017-11-03 19:28:21 UTC

But also being colorblind is racist

2017-11-03 19:28:30 UTC

what about white with 1% turkish

2017-11-03 19:28:49 UTC

Turks can't be racist

2017-11-03 19:29:16 UTC

I watched Valley of the Wolves

2017-11-03 19:29:21 UTC

they are super-not racist

2017-11-03 19:29:43 UTC

I'm saved, but I am also a saracen. I must crusade against myself. Deus Vult.

2017-11-03 19:30:02 UTC

Uzbecks are related to many ethicities

2017-11-03 21:32:25 UTC


2017-11-03 21:32:29 UTC

he is not a "PoC"

2017-11-03 21:32:36 UTC

fuck that

2017-11-03 21:33:00 UTC

she is probably calling him PoC just because he is muslim

2017-11-03 21:33:09 UTC

The Uzbeks are a Turkic ethnic group;

2017-11-03 21:33:16 UTC


2017-11-03 21:33:35 UTC

2017-11-03 21:33:39 UTC

2017-11-03 21:33:54 UTC

2017-11-03 21:33:57 UTC

I don't give a shit about his skin color tbh

2017-11-03 22:08:03 UTC

the funny part is.... you can do a quick google search to see how muslims behave

2017-11-03 22:08:22 UTC

quite a few people talking about shitty stuff that happened in saudi arabia

2017-11-03 22:08:22 UTC


2017-11-03 22:08:38 UTC

they keep pushing this shitty ideology

2017-11-04 01:20:14 UTC

I mean. If we’re gonna look at this logically, we have to think back to how traditionalist the Uzbek’s culture was.

Muslims in the Western world that have adapted to Western society well aren’t the problem.

2017-11-04 01:22:06 UTC

The fundamentalist, the extremists, those are the ones we have to keep a closer eye on.

2017-11-04 01:23:11 UTC

Honestly if there was a system where we can check to see how people from traditionalist countries handle being in such a progressive(by comparison) country are coping.

2017-11-04 01:24:56 UTC

The Left doesn’t think that far deep past β€œoh u can’t critique poc bc bigotry”, which is hurting our country. Obviously.

2017-11-04 03:11:50 UTC

ask them to draw Muhammad when they enter the country

Old Soviet joke:

2017-11-04 21:08:00 UTC

Capitalism, Socialism, and Communism are sitting around talking. Socialism says he needs to do an errand and goes off. Three hours later he returns carrying a small package.

2017-11-04 21:08:11 UTC

β€œWhat took you do long?” asks Capitalism.

2017-11-04 21:08:21 UTC

β€œI had to buy some sausage, and there was a long line,” Socialism explains.

2017-11-04 21:08:30 UTC

β€œWhat’s a line?” asks Capitalism?

2017-11-04 21:08:36 UTC

And Communism inquires, β€˜What’s sausage?"

2017-11-04 23:47:38 UTC

Maybe they will scream at the sky...

2017-11-05 16:51:27 UTC

I was curious so I did a bit of research into the allegations that the CIA pumped drugs into LA, found out it's basically bullshit. First off, that's not even what the original article series claimed, second three outlets responded questioning the validity of the claims it did make: The New York Times; The Los Angeles Times; The Washington Post. Here is an article written by the Executive Editor of the outlet that originally released the series, taking responsibility for poor practices which allowed the article to contain misleading characterizations https://web.archive.org/web/19971119070955/http://www.sjmercury.com/drugs/column051197.htm

2017-11-05 16:56:22 UTC

The argument that the CIA funneled cocaine into Los Angeles via the Contras in the 1980s, so as to cripple the black community, is commonly used to characterize he United States government as being explicitly hostile and oppressive towards black americans.
