Does no one remember the fact that Reagan was an actor before he was POTUS?

2018-01-08 22:29:07 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  


2018-01-08 22:29:14 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Disregard that, i suck cocks.

2018-01-08 22:30:24 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I'd pay to see that though

2018-01-08 22:31:10 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Oh dear god

2018-01-09 00:02:53 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Shapiro is a man with an excellent set of debate skills, but little to no things of actual value to say.

2018-01-09 00:04:49 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Oh he's definitely a step above buzzfeed

2018-01-09 00:05:13 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

He just pretends his arguments have actual physical value, rather than just being moralist arguments repackaged.

2018-01-09 00:05:38 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

While Buzzfeed just goes straight for the moralizing.

2018-01-09 00:07:19 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Rephrase, because English isn't my first language:

2018-01-09 00:08:39 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

He's able to provide a bit of argumentative backing to his moral positions, rather than just straight up presenting the moral arguments without backing at all. That lets him pretend that his arguments aren't just, well, moral arguments, because at first glance they aren't.

2018-01-09 00:14:40 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Basically my opinion on those two

2018-01-09 00:28:41 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

If someone doesn't know the basis of ST lore, they're literally of no use to society.

2018-01-09 00:57:30 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]  

Ohey, a belgian

2018-01-09 00:57:52 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]  

Stop being a rebellious province, rejoin your just and righteous overlords in the Netherlands.

2018-01-09 00:58:52 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

And limit his movements too

2018-01-09 00:59:03 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

The shoulder plates alone weighed something like 12 kgs

2018-01-09 01:00:02 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  


2018-01-09 01:00:20 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

He also couldn't use lightning due his cybernetic limbs

2018-01-09 01:01:32 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  


2018-01-09 01:01:36 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

His first name is Sheev

2018-01-09 12:32:43 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]  

Do you know da whey?

2018-01-09 15:53:41 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

It's even the case that non-English sources are blatantly stating Demore claimed women simply are inferior to men in engineering, @Timcast

2018-01-09 16:49:56 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

Hell, the production company of the movie being referenced is retweeting the meme like crazy.

2018-01-09 22:40:32 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I still think Trump should have offered Sanders a spot in his cabinet.

2018-01-09 22:40:54 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

He'd have instantly and horribly crashed the entirety of the media narrative against him

2018-01-09 22:54:24 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Obamacare is an abominable piece of legislation

2018-01-09 22:54:43 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

At the same time I do agree with the goal of single-payer healthcare

2018-01-09 22:55:01 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

With the option for people that want private insurance to do so, without being required to pay tax for SPH.

2018-01-09 22:55:35 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

No, it isn't.

2018-01-09 22:58:14 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  


2018-01-09 23:49:07 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]  

Not entirely true

2018-01-09 23:49:15 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]  

Kids are more likely to befriend their own race

2018-01-09 23:49:23 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]  

They're also more likely to bully their own race

2018-01-10 20:21:06 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]  


2018-01-10 21:04:19 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Pack something to protect yourself, Tim

2018-01-10 22:46:41 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  


2018-01-10 22:46:46 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Tim covers cars

2018-01-10 22:51:51 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Then why are you going?

2018-01-10 23:00:54 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I've heard Montana is absolutely beautiful, just, you know, void of all human life.

2018-01-11 00:32:53 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Maybe, maybe.

2018-01-11 01:02:38 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Slightly left, progressive, liberal here

2018-01-11 01:02:45 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I'd vote Trump in a heartbeat.

2018-01-11 01:03:27 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

No, the democrats are neither left, progressive nor liberal

2018-01-11 01:03:42 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

That too

2018-01-11 01:05:32 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I'm left-ish, as in, the wealthy in today's day and age are the nobles of yesteryear, and that means that as well as their privilege, they have duties. *Noblesse obliege* is the French term.

I'm progressive as in, the current status quo isn't the best, and change is needed.

I'm liberal as in, keep government the fuck out of my private life, it has nothing to do there.

2018-01-11 01:07:00 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I'm also borderline absolutist on gun rights.

2018-01-11 01:07:11 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Against immigration from the third world

2018-01-11 01:07:39 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I'm left-leaning economically.

2018-01-11 01:07:58 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I think the rich should be taxed, I also think there should be tax-funded healthcare...

2018-01-11 01:08:17 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

STEM should be tax-funded, outside of that you gotta pay your own college

2018-01-11 01:09:39 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Gender studies isn't STEM, because it doesn't involve hard facts.

2018-01-11 01:09:47 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Basically that

2018-01-11 01:10:21 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I also believe in the tax funding of things like culture, but by that I mean, actual culture and not modern art.

2018-01-11 01:10:54 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Also things like at least government-majority-share, if not straight up nationalized public transport systems

2018-01-11 01:11:21 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I'm this weird as fuck combination of left and right ideals

2018-01-11 01:11:40 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

People like Sargon have been going 'what should our name be as a movement'

2018-01-11 01:11:46 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I like the term 'pragmatic liberalism'

2018-01-11 01:12:09 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

No, no.

2018-01-11 01:12:23 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Classical liberalism is generally considered to be solidly on the right.

2018-01-11 01:12:30 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

At least, in places outside the US

2018-01-11 01:13:17 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I like the term pragmatic, because it indicates people in the movement are willing to hold left wing viewpoints and right wing viewpoints on different issues at the same time.

2018-01-11 01:13:26 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I.E. no ideology automatically holds the right answers.

2018-01-11 01:13:33 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

And liberals, because, well

2018-01-11 01:13:34 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  


2018-01-11 01:13:48 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I.E. in favor of personal liberty.

2018-01-11 01:14:04 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Only in the US.

2018-01-11 01:14:50 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

If you call yourself a 'liberal' of any stripe in the Netherlands, you will be automatically looked on as being right-wing.

2018-01-11 01:15:18 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Maybe extend it to 'Pragmatic liberal centrists'

2018-01-11 01:15:26 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

But 'pragmatic' is the important part.

2018-01-11 01:16:09 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I wish I had a direct line to Sargon, but ever since he got kicked off Twatter

2018-01-11 01:16:23 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

I've tried contacting him on Gab, but he ain't responding there

2018-01-11 01:16:52 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  


2018-01-11 01:16:58 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Anyway, it's 2:15 am here

2018-01-11 01:17:03 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

So I'm gonna crawl into my bed

2018-01-12 00:04:43 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]

2018-01-12 00:21:20 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

The problem being in the US, there actually are only two options.

2018-01-12 00:21:34 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

CGPGrey did a great video on the problems with first-past-the-post voting systems

2018-01-12 00:23:07 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Basically, yes. Unless the third-party can win in their first running, they're guaranteed to never be more than 'voting for those guys is why that person I dislike the most won last time, so I won't this time'

2018-01-12 00:23:26 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

The spoiler effect is real

2018-01-12 00:49:31 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  


2018-01-12 00:49:41 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

It would require a fundamental change to the very voting system used.

2018-01-12 00:49:51 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

From FPTP to something like Single Transferrable Vote

2018-01-12 11:46:10 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]  

>Super sayian Trump

2018-01-12 11:46:12 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]  

Oh dear lord

2018-01-12 16:29:18 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Do you mean, Republic Commando?

2018-01-12 16:42:47 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Karen Traviss is one of the worst writers to ever vomit words onto paper

2018-01-12 16:44:54 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

One of.

2018-01-12 16:44:55 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Not the

2018-01-12 16:59:42 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Literally everything else she wrote can be summarized as 'taking a gigantic steaming shit all over every other part of the setting'

2018-01-12 16:59:49 UTC [Subverse #newsroom]  

Especially her Halo books
