It's not propaganda, it's basic facts. The Nazis were the "National Socialist German Workers' Party" or NSDAP, clearly a socialist party, and that's reflected both by their party platform and their policies in office. What's propaganda is telling people the National Socialists were right wing. They were socialist identitarians selling the public a victimhood narrative, not unlike a lot of modern socialists. But hey, I guess it wasn't REAL socialism, right? The fuck outa here.
Nazis: that time socialism went so wrong that the left calls it far right.
I'm saying normal people are not well represented on Twitter, but fringe weirdos and nutty leftist political agendas are, so it's not an accurate representation of what the general public thinks. And yes, beyond the people who are actually nuts, there are a segment of people who parrot nutty ideas to get attention and approval.
How many of the opinions you hold are actually your own? If you're like most people, most of your opinions and your ideas about the world are a collection of things you were told by authorities of one form or another. Until or unless you form your own opinions, you are a kind of mental slave, because everyone who gives you an opinion has their own agenda, and you serve that agenda when you adopt that opinion whether it benefits you or not. Sometimes the agenda is simply to benefit you, like most of what your parents teach you, but often it's to benefit other people at your expense.
For example, has raising carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere from 0.03% prior to the industrial revolution to 0.04% now resulted in a climate emergency? If you adopt that opinion, you are serving an agenda that has wide ranging consequences. The benefits are vague and nebulous, but the costs are very concrete. The opinion they give you says the costs are worth it, but are they really? Or is it just an excuse for new taxes and regulations, aka taking money and power from you and giving it to the rich and powerful? If someone wants to take your money and your power over vague promises of a better world, it's probably a good idea to be skeptical, but hey, what do I know? I'm just some random person on the internet.
Trump's charity donated MORE money than it took in, how many charities can say that? Virtually none, they all have "operational expenses" that come out of donations, so only a percentage reaches the needy.
What percentage of Clinton Foundation money goes to real and actual charities? If you define “actual charities not controlled by the Clintons” as “programmatic grants,” then it appears the number is 15%. https://newspunch.com/clinton-f...go-to-charity/
Trump University never really claimed to be a university in the traditional sense, nobody was going there to take applied physics or gender studies, it was a real estate investment course. Trump didn't involve himself as much as he should, delegated authority to people who were somewhat corrupt, but that was less of a problem for students than the 2008 real estate crash. In the early days, around 2005, 98% of students probably were satisfied with the course, the market was hot and there were opportunities to make money employing his strategies. But when the crash hit, even the smartest people in real estate got kicked in the nuts. It would be next to impossible to go out there and be a success in real estate, so naturally people weren't happy. Was Trump a perfect angel in that situation? No, not really, he was trying to make a buck. Was he trying to scam people? I don't think that was his intent, it was supposed to be win win, but the market intervened.
He paid off Stormy Daniels, was it simply to shut her up despite the fact she was lying? It's possible. More likely he did bang her, but it was consensual. In any case, it wasn't raised as an issue until he started running for president, so that fact alone tells me it likely had more to do with politics than anything else.
The Russia shit has been thoroughly investigated and Trump put sanctions on Russia over it, it's not like it's been ignored. Why then is it inappropriate to look into Ukraine's election interference?
Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire
Kiev officials are scrambling to make amends with the president-elect after quietly working to boost Clinton. https://www.politico.com/story/...ackfire-233446
Trump didn't allow the crazy shit that happens in the Middle East to derail America's strategic alliance with Saudi Arabia and NATO member Turkey? What do you expect? He's the president, he has an obligation to maintain alliances he thinks serve American interests.
Biden bragged on camera to withholding a billion dollars in aid to Ukraine until they fired their attorney general who Biden claimed was corrupt, but who was also investigating Barisma, the company his son was inexplicably being paid a high salary by. In subsequent investigations, Barisma was found to be engaging in corruption, unlike the attorney general Biden had fired, who was investigated and found innocent.
Being called corrupt for investigating corruption, that's some 1984 shit right there.
Sadly that appears to be true. Still, if they fixed it things would probably turn around.
Clearly gender dysphoria is a mental illness, your gender is part of your DNA, your chromosomes, you are what you are. That's not to say there might not be a biological component to it as well, we know they put chemicals in the water that turn the friggin' frogs gay. That sounds hyperbolic, but it's a fact that Atrazine is a widely used agricultural chemical that has been shown to cause gender mutation in frog populations and is one of the most common pollutants in US drinking water. Does it mess with our gender too? Then there's bisphenol A, which is found in the linings of cans and has been shown to make epigenetic changes to your DNA, that is, changes you pass to your children, and can affect their sexual development during gestation, particularly boys. I mean, that's horrifying, why is it allowed on the market? But it is. So now we have a bunch of people whose sexual development has been damaged by chemicals, and instead of banning the chemicals and suing the chemical companies into oblivion, they just try to normalize the victims, and the problem goes unsolved claiming more victims every day. This is genocide level shit, and nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. Shut up transphobe, keep the biggest class action lawsuit of the modern era away and let the profits keep rolling in.
"Venice subsided about 120 mm in the 20th century due to natural processes and groundwater extraction, in addition to a sea level rise of about 110 mm at the same time"
"A multibillion-dollar effort to install flood-protection walls that can be raised to block incoming tides is nearing completion"
MOSE (MOdulo Sperimentale Elettromeccanico, Experimental Electromechanical Module) is a project intended to protect the city of Venice, Italy, and the Venetian Lagoon from flooding.
Following the flood of 4 November 1966 when Venice, Chioggia and the other built-up areas in the lagoon were submerged by a tide of 194 centimetres (76 in), the first Special Law for Venice declared the problem of safeguarding the city to be of "priority national interest". This marked the beginning of a long legislative and technical process to guarantee Venice and the lagoon an effective sea defence system.
After multiple delays, cost overruns, and scandals resulted in the project missing its 2018 completion deadline, it is now expected to be fully completed in 2022.
DID the CIA assassinate journalist Michael Hastings?
WikiLeaks’ release on Tuesday of a massive trove of secret CIA documents has reignited conspiracy theories which have swirled since 2013, with revelations the spy agency was attempting to remotely hack vehicles.
“As of October 2014 the CIA was also looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks,” WikiLeaks writes. “The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations.”
Hastings, an acclaimed war correspondent and vocal critic of government mass surveillance, died in the early hours of Tuesday, June 18, 2013, when his Mercedes C250 Coupe apparently lost control and burst into flames before slamming into a palm tree.
Witnesses to the accident, which occurred around 4:25am in the leafy Hancock Park neighbourhood of Los Angeles, said the car appeared to be travelling at top speed and was creating “sparks and flames” before it went off the road.
Just over 12 hours earlier, the 33-year-old BuzzFeed and Rolling Stone contributor had sent an email to colleagues and friends, warning he was onto a “big story” and was under investigation.
“The Feds are interviewing my ‘close friends and associates’,” he wrote in an email sent at around 1pm on Monday, June 17. “May be wise to immediately request legal counsel before any conversations or interviews about our news-gathering practices. I’m onto a big story and need to go off the radar for a bit. All the best, and hope to see you soon. Michael.”
Hastings’ final published article, ‘Why Democrats Love To Spy On Americans’, was highly critical of President Barack Obama and the US government’s domestic spying program, which had just been revealed by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.
Hastings accused the Obama administration and its allies in the FBI and Department of Justice of waging a war on “transparency supporters, whistleblowers and investigative reporters”.
I guess it depends. Most of the skins used in our society come from cattle, so as long as people eat beef, there will be a steady supply of leather and it would be wasteful not to use it.
Of course you're talking about furs, and in general I agree that it's a bad excuse to raise animals. Fur bearing animals aren't well adapted to being farmed, since they are quite intelligent and solitary. It seems cruel and unnecessary for them to live and die that way for such a frivolous purpose.
On the other hand, trapping is one of the few forms of income for natives in remote areas of Canada, and with the push to ban fur they've been largely stripped of that income which had enabled them to live a somewhat independent and traditional life. This is a contributing factor to the pervasive sense of hopelessness many natives in remote villages feel, leading to substance abuse and suicide.

The young are impressionable and firmly within the mental grip of educational institutions, and those who control them. Since educators have for the most part lived within the sanctuary of educational institutions all their lives, most of them have a tenuous grip on the realities of the larger world and are often quite delusional. As such, they're not the people to listen to when it comes to things like politics. Lowering the voting age would amount to an amplification of the delusional ideas of teachers. If anything, voting age should be raised because it takes life experience for people to break through the idiocy they learned in school and develop sensible ideas about the world.
Well technically it's just macaroni, but you know how donut shops sell donut holes? Spaghetti is macaroni holes. [points at head] Think about it.
