I agree with you but
stop prattling on about... health/food
stop prattling on about... health/food
What do you mean here? I'd argue that a proper education on nutrition would help the next generation. Science teachers should be one of several lines of defense against the utterly insane "healthy at every size" consoomer movement. If someone can't begin to explain why it's a bad idea to have a Big Mac for every meal, then I don't think they should be graduating high school.
New York City certainly does have a brand. Ludicrous traffic, loud and polluted streets, omnipresent garish advertisements, violent homeless people, narcissism, unaffordable housing, and a billion copies of the "original" Lombardi's Pizzeria.
Truly NYC is the envy of the world.
Russia: Putin has ties to the WEF. It may be out of convenience, but Russia is still wracked with AIDs, corruption, poverty, alcoholism, low life expectancy, and abortion.
Ukraine: a hyper-corrupt client state of the neoliberal hegemony, and really nothing more than a pawn. Biden, Trudeau, et al couldn't care less about any kind of nuanced ethnic conflicts within Eastern Ukraine, and they've never sincerely cared about the sovereignty of a national border. They just want to make sure that drag queen shows can continue in Kiev.
Brazil: Probably the least dysfunctional BRICS member, but still deeply impoverished. Bolsonaro is probably what Putin wishes he could be, but then again Brazil might wind up replacing Jair with their version of Biden anyway.
India: Hyper-corrupt, hyper-polluted, and hyper-impoverished.
China: It's Airstrip One with a house-of-cards economy. The CCP will happily promote cultural rot within the west if it suits their interests.
South Africa: Hyper-corrupt, fairly impoverished, and wracked with racial violence.
The only good guys in this entire situation are the civilians of either side who just want to live in peace, and the conscripts who don't want to be there. All of these places are, for the most part, dreadful places to live. If we're only talking about earthly kingdoms, then it seems like only a handful of places have their heads screwed on straight. Maybe Poland and Hungary.
True, but it doesn't matter how many they have if they're not going to use them. So far, I haven't seen them use missiles, not even the conventional sort.
If their missile technology is anything like their lackluster air force, then perhaps they don't consider them reliable, or they're worried that Ukraine would respond with NATO-supplied missiles which would almost certainly be among the best in the world. But I'm just speculating.
Their land forces are probably among the best in the world on paper, but their air force is definitely terrible. From what I've gathered, the main sources of their headaches stem from incompetence and corruption among higher officers, and from their technologically-outclassed and poorly-managed air power.
Awfully strange to include the "peace" sign as one of the symbols of the Neoliberal Order here, considering how the Bush-McCain-Obama-Clinton Monoparty adores foreign interventionism.
He has no campaign. He already lost his primary.
Michael Cogbill already lost his primary, and it wasn't even close.
Per Ballotpedia, wthe primary race was called with 50% of precincts reporting with Mikey getting 4% of the vote in what appears to have been a very un-crowded race.
PA-3 is extremely blue and there's apparently no Republican candidate, so the Dem will effectively be running unopposed in Novemeber.
I'm sure you have room, Chris.
After all, Hate Has No Home(tm) at your beach condo.
I'm going to disagree slightly. Shelters are generally (intended) for temporary stays.
Those huddled masses should not be expected to leave. We should fund a high-density apartment complex with full amenities, for indefinite stays. Paid for by Massachusets tax dollars, of course.
Saw another really good suggestion on Twitter yesterday. It went something like this:
Send all of the homeless and injured veterans to the homes of neocons and warmongers.
Kinda hard to hear their "we don't hate immigrants" bleating over the sound of the millions of limousine liberals screaming at the sky for the past 24 hours.
They should be thanking DeSantis for freeing the huddled masses from the... [checks notes] hyper-fascist hellscape of Florida.
You think it's inhumane because housing is too expensive.
I think it's inhumane because I don't think anybody should have to live within a hundred miles of Obama.
We are not the same.
Sorry Kamala, but no human being is illegal. Take down that fence and build some bridges. You have no right to turn away those poor huddled masses. 💅
I said weeks ago that Martha's Vineyard in particular should take in some of the poor huddled masses.
I'd like to think that someone from the DeSantis administration took my advice.
Not trying to pat myself on the back, but I did some layman statistical analysis a while back, to further contextualize just how preposterous those "legitimate" ballot dumps were.
TLDR: even when looking back at the most partisan areas during the biggest landslide elections, no ballot batch of significant size reaches anything like a 95-5 or 99-1 result.
This must be the "Dark winter" that Biden* was mumbling about.
Anyone who went through high school knows that nobody treats women and girls worse than other women and girls.
Does this duncecap think that straight guys are organizing themselves into cliques and gossiping about Becky's ugly shoes?
It's not right that one guy named Frank is the only one who gets to vote.
Remember this the next time some urban bughive dweller scoffs at "flyover country" for having "bad education systems" and "stoopid redneck hayseeds".
Because it functions as a "gateway drug" of sorts. A guy might start by just looking at the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, but in many, many cases, they slide down a slope and start chasing more explicit or extreme content. Just as a drug addict has to take larger doses to get the same high, a person looking at lewd material will not enjoy the same dopamine rush as they did before, and so they go into weirder and darker corners. And as this is happening, the viewer's perception of love and sexuality and the rest of the world are warped.
Dark corners and warped perceptions, including autogynephilia.
That's not to say that looking at one dirty magazine is necessarily going to catapult you into the Bruce Jenner mindset, but you can never be sure where that "slide" will take you once you start down it. I don't believe it's a coincidence that "transgender" people are frequently found defending pornography, or that many admit to consuming it regularly, and I don't think it's a coincidence that the rise in self-reported "transgender" cases has happened alongside the explosion of internet pornography.

Rick Wilson is a political mercenary, and I mean that in the most odious sense of the word.
Go back to 2012 or so, and Wilson's Twitter is filled with instances of him calling Biden an idiot or something similar.
Did anything change between 2012 and now? Did Biden become lucid or have some kind of political awakening?
No, his IQ dropped by another 50 points, and his views became more ludicrous. And now Rick Wilson adores him.
I never had to justify the exact temperature of my home until the Very Serious And Intelligent Statesman Joseph Biden was elected*.
But I guess this is the price of no more mean tweets.
