  • I think the viewpoints I am seeing on being a conservative are generalizing an entire population just as from conservatives have towards liberals. You have conservatives that do questionable things, but liberals are not innocent either. Look at antifa, to ignore that is ignorant. Can we come to the conclusion

    I think the viewpoints I am seeing on being a conservative are generalizing an entire population just as from conservatives have towards liberals. You have conservatives that do questionable things, but liberals are not innocent either. Look at antifa, to ignore that is ignorant. Can we come to the conclusion no one should be censored? That thats the point of the freedom of speech and it is the peoples decision to listen, to monopolize opinions and beliefs is censorship. To be fair most big organization do have conservative bias but not all are even conservatives and vice versa, when the truth is everyone with influence small or large are afraid to voice their potentially oppositional and controversial ideas, because from both sides they will bash their beliefs and hurt business if it doesn’t follow their (usually mainstream) paradigm. So even if they share your ideas or are in opposition, due to the impact of having a political beliefs that can hurt business they must conform.

  • This is quite funny, why does anyone especially the Guardian, that if the election was rigged in Trumps favor then why on earth would they talk about it. Also I don’t know how Trump will handle this, but the last time when he met with Korea and how it played out, should give a slither of hope. But he

    This is quite funny, why does anyone especially the Guardian, that if the election was rigged in Trumps favor then why on earth would they talk about it. Also I don’t know how Trump will handle this, but the last time when he met with Korea and how it played out, should give a slither of hope. But he is the president, and that doesnt mean bow down it just mean we keep our eye on him just like I did with the last president. While I’ll admit I wasn’t a big fan, but I still give credit when credit is due. In short don’t read this with bias, read some other articles, even if they don’t align with your political belief. The more sources the more refine the story becomes, but do hope the best with our relationship with Russia, we’ve been enemies for too long. Pressing propaganda that there’s still a need to be afraid of them, its tome to leave the Cold War. Lets hope this is a turning point in history, don’t just doubt everything sometimes you’ll see good and progress when and where you’d least expect it. Lastly knowledge is power, use it

  • I don’t see why this is such a pressing issue. Does race or racism change the pizza? Does racism mean less African Americans wont be able to eat there? No! He said a word associated with a negative light due to its history and for whatever reason we as a generation who has never experienced true discrimination

    I don’t see why this is such a pressing issue. Does race or racism change the pizza? Does racism mean less African Americans wont be able to eat there? No! He said a word associated with a negative light due to its history and for whatever reason we as a generation who has never experienced true discrimination of separate but equal or the life under the laws of Jim Crow, but seem to feel compelled even after about 85-90% of what legislation can actually control with law, we feel a deep pain with that word. From my experience observing myself and others if I said any word with a negative connotation someone will be offended, but with this word because of its history makes it a socio-political controversy. People do know the F-word was used to say that a homosexual should be burned at the stake and while dying being called the F-word, but that word doesn’t cause public controversy, in facf most people don’t know its dark origin but use it frequently in public conversation. Meanwhile we must be careful about saying the N-word. My digression race is man-made geopolitical term to compartmentalize people leading to division of people, because we love to show difference hate. I believe in culture not race, all race tells someone is what continent your ancestors came from. Since race as a whole has no one culture, it is arbitrary to identify with it and let it divide us as human beings.

  • I love technology, my xbox, my mac, the phone I’m commenting from. But I also think we are going to far in the waters of technology. We are beginning to make machines that really could take over nations if not the world. AI’s would act like a government or generals, robots would follow their command

    I love technology, my xbox, my mac, the phone I’m commenting from. But I also think we are going to far in the waters of technology. We are beginning to make machines that really could take over nations if not the world. AI’s would act like a government or generals, robots would follow their command and with robots with advanced capabilities man would falter. Creating something which cannot be controlled is literally playing God. We were somehow created with the intellect we have and for the most part it has all been in the name of destruction. WMDs, biochemical weapons, lasers (yes look it up it was banned by the Geneva convention). So do we really think making humanoid robots, especially sex robots that could create a west-world or blade runner scenario.

  • I dont think this is an issue on who is wrong or right, all presidents essentially operate under the same rules. Without being too humorous “don’t hate the player hate the game.” All presidents were and as of now can still pardon themselves? This means every president, at least as far back as Reagan

    I dont think this is an issue on who is wrong or right, all presidents essentially operate under the same rules. Without being too humorous “don’t hate the player hate the game.” All presidents were and as of now can still pardon themselves? This means every president, at least as far back as Reagan this has been allowed, i think that should be our true focus on this subject. If all we do is point fingers at which presidents got close to pardoning themselves or even the ones who never had, still had that political option. To me it is the existence of the option rather than who is using it and for what purpose, anytime someone needs to be pardon for anything should raise eyebrows. Question is when and why does this option exist.

  • Honestly not getting political but I know Andros, Greece at least on that island they bury people and return about 7 years till we more or less become dust. Ashes to ashes dust to dust, then have the ashes in a container in a mausoleum which allows more heroes to be buried and still recognized for going

    Honestly not getting political but I know Andros, Greece at least on that island they bury people and return about 7 years till we more or less become dust. Ashes to ashes dust to dust, then have the ashes in a container in a mausoleum which allows more heroes to be buried and still recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty.
