I'm generally upset with Israel over their treatment of other ethnic groups in the region, and I'm upset with people in our government and other leaders of institutions who support (through many different methods) what Israel is doing. This includes non-Jewish as you mentioned. Trump, for instance, and many non-Jewish Congress people. I'm upset with most of those same people attempting to bring communism into our country as well. We don't need it.

All of that being said, I'm still free to point out that Jewish people have a massively disproportionate amount of power and control as an ethnic group. And I'll keep pointing it out even when it hurts people's feelings.

And if you care about the lives of those teenagers, you leave them out of the fight. I've never sent my children into battle and I never will. There is no point. It looks to me like intentional sacrifice for martyr status. I'm totally fine with an adult doing this, but will never be alright with adults letting their kids go do this. Never will be. Meanwhile I have and will make these exact same statements in person. Not afraid to back any of my words up, and if someone feels the need to bully me in person for having a discussion, that's on them.

And my analogy is still sound, even if you don't want to accept it. Sending kids into known murderers' range of violence will always be the same to me, regardless of the other factors in play. There is no good excuse for it that I have seen so far.

Don't lie or make personal insults when arguing with people. It turns a conversation completely pointless.

Don't take your emotions out on people around you. Explain to them you are having a bad day, and apologize in advance for any "shrapnel" they get hit with from your emotions.

Don't make people clean up after you (unless it literally their job, and even then, minimize the impact) because you are an adult and don't need to live the life of a perpetual child.

Jewish people hold a massively disproportionate amount of political positions, major corporate leadership/ownership positions, and even moreso with media companies. They are supposedly 1.8% of the population yet manage to be represented by many multiples in the aforementioned institutions. That's not an insult, by the way. It's a compliment to their intelligence and persistence, regardless of how much nepotism is involved. They manage to allocate the highest per capita foreign assistance to any country in the world, to Israel; and manage to get more military equipment than any country in the world, to Israel. They managed to get laws against BDS against Israel, and are successfully pursuing laws against the vague concept of anti-Semitism. No other group has that much pull in our country.

You are completely off track here. You don't have any clue what my stance is on Israel if you think I am defending them or excusing their actions. But my point, clear as day, is that if there are a muderous pack of criminals in my house, I'm not sending my kids in. Regardless of who is in the ethical or legal right. Sending kids into slaughter is insane. It's not victim blaming to be confused at why anyone would put children into harm's way, knowing it is harm's way. I think you are just angry and looking for a fight. You won't get one from me. I do my fighting in person.

An easy short term fix would be to reduce the American work week to 35 hours. In a vacuum, that would add 12.5% more jobs to the economy. Companies will be able to lower prices since productivity will increase from the automation. And maybe the gov can steal a little less in taxes from the working classes so we have more disposable income too.

Edit: and new jobs will evolve alongside the automation industry. Just like all technological unemployment from the past created new job fields as well. Also, who doesn't want a shorter work week??

[–]HurkaDurka 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

My understanding is that Bernie doesn't need to have citizenship. He applied for recognition by Israel of his Jewish blood, and if he touches ground in Israel he will automatically be given citizenship, upon request. All Jews can do this (nearly all rich ones already do this) and they know they can show up at anytime with their "I'm a certified Jew" paperwork to get their citizenship.

In other words, Israel is their rescue boat that they all make sure to keep well funded and secured. It's why we give them so much money and military arms.

I Google the claims about the population decline. There are some claims that the population was adjusted after the fact to reflect the imaginary loss of 6,000,000 lives. On top of this, the pre-war stats for Jewish population was pumped up a few million as well. That doesn't mean a ton of Jewish people didn't die or get killed. Just unlikely that the "6,000,000" figure is accurate. Also considering it's use in the past makes it less likely to be accurate.

What's interesting, growing up in the Middle East, we got a drastically different version of the Jewish Holocaust compared to what people are taught in the U.S. Not that killing innocent people is okay, but there were genuinely two sides to that story, and incidents like the Holodmor laid some groundwork for why the Germans were afraid of Russians, Jews, and communists. Most Jewish died from the cutoff of food supply lines (by the Allies) and from diseases like Typhus.

As our obesity rates increase, the percentage we would need to pay would keep increasing. It would probably be at least 15% of our checks right now. And it will grow (like our citizens) every year. I would fully support a national medical system that excluded treatment for obesity/smoking/alcoholism induced disease. But that would be impossible to implement (and a bit immoral) so I'll stick to being on the fence with socializing our medial care.

My wife and I had to wait to have kids until everything was timed as best as we could time it. Her dirtbag sister just decided to recklessly make babies, go on welfare, is now looking at divorce, and is miserable as hell. Everyone warned her. Now, not only do we, as a society, pay for her recklessness, but those kids are fucked.

For sure. There is a ton of work to be done. I played it about a month ago and it was bad. Hopefully it will get more content as well as these types of fixes.

Just getting the posting started. For those of you that hated RDR2 online due to the annoying griefing, this might make things a hell of a lot better. I'm on chapter 6, and taking my time. Looking forward to playing online when I'm done.

Nothing and everything. It's a forum to discuss gaming and the SJWs present day (since it used to be right wingers that waged war against us) war on gamers and gaming. Tons of shit posting. Lots of Japanese culture. Lots of clowning SJWs and man-hating feminists (redundant?).

Like any non-left-wing sub, it is in the cross hairs of the new Chinese overlords. Part of the reason I ditched Reddit and came here.

Especially if it is to protect Jewish people. Things suddenly become bi-partisan. Not for any other ethnicity or group (besides females, to a lesser degree). Things like you mentioned, as well as right wing concerns, just don't matter.

You're such a coward you won't even agree to a bet or to ending your account. I give in though since you are genuinely pathetic enough to believe you are right:

I could go on indefinitely, but something tells me you won't absorb any of this anyway. I couldn't give a fuck about eugenics faggots trying rank the races. They're about as dumb as people that deny that races even exist. Except you already admitted that races have different physical (you said cosmetic, which is still a physical trait, and those traits have numerous impacts on health) traits, so you already conceded the argument and agreed with my original point. That there are natural differences amongst races.

I already did back it up. You just didn't want to accept my answer. You can literally see the differences in races. Proving that differences exist. That doesn't take a source. I could send you a picture of two races to prove that, but I don't need to. You already know you are wrong. You're embarrassed but afraid to quit. Tell you what. I'll drop the bet, and instead, if I provide sources that races exist, you have to delete this account and start a new one. Deal? I'm not submitting to you without some kind of gain for me.

And guess what, hollow cosmetic differences ARE STILL FUCKING DIFFERENCES. You just admitted you were wrong, and are still trying to argue. I'm embarrassed for you at this point. Will you take the deal though?

Too scared to take the bet, huh? That's disappointing. Why don't you admit you were talking out of your ass and that you know races exist.

You need a source that black people have black features and Asian people have Asian features? A source that they have different averages with health and cognitive ability? You could google countless sources and you know it. I'm pretty sure you're trolling though. Tell you what, if you aren't trolling, will you make a bet with me? We each put $10,000 worth of etherium held in a smart contract by a third party escrow service. The service will grant me the total $20k if I provide evidence that races have genetic differences, like you are claiming they don't have. Deal? I'll do the ten second Google search then, but I won't be your bitch who operates at your command when you could spend seconds doing the same thing. Or you could actually contradict any of the claims I made earlier about racial differences, which you never even bothered to do.

Also congrats on being the first person I have ever seen actually argue that races don't have differences. Pretty cool to see the outstanding variety of beliefs people can hold. I hope you take the bet, either way.

I'm not your researcher. You can learn for yourself. But if you're actually making the claim that there aren't genetic differences between races, you might literally be retarded. If there weren't, we wouldn't even be able to identify them as races. In that case, my wife (black) and I (Arab) would be identical and our kids would be identical to us. But instead we are drastically different, and our kids look like a mix between the two of us. Ya know, since they have a mixture of our two genes. And there are even more non-visual differences (based on averages) on top of that. Even if that hurts your feelings. It's the reality of humanity, and all life.

As a general concept, sure, but one company (I know there are a ton more) getting an exemption from the tax gives and unfair competitive edge.

Nice 1984 style revision. Let the real definition, number 3, just fade away. Race is factually a primary determinant of traits. Both physical and mental. This isn't related to superiority in any way. Races and sexes are naturally different, even if nurture has some impact after that...

This, IMO, is the same direction streaming services like Netflix are headed. They just need to acclimate us to the concept. Over time.
