the state can destroy this business

Just vote for people who won't. We can't solve anything without voting the Democratic-Republican establishment out of office, and keeping them out.

You want to distribute the profit, but what about the debt?

This doesn't really relate to the public financial companies, but here's my idea:

  1. Pass a balanced budget amendment like every state except Vermont

  2. Cancel debt owed to Communist China and other hostile countries

  3. Lower interest rates on the debt

  4. Severely cut federal spending, and relegate it to its constitutional powers

  5. Raise tariffs and taxes on the wealthy

The Roman Republic used to have two consuls.

I'm not entirely sure why you mentioned this.

Yes, but we could separate them from the government by giving each citizen one voting share — that way, corruption in Congress and the Presidency wouldn't effect it as much, and the profit would all be distributed as a dividend, rather then being funneled into government programs. Also, this would be done largely at the state-level, with the federal bank only having limited powers, such as printing money.

There's a major difference between how Democratic Presidents act in office and how literal Communists controlled by the CCP act on the Internet. Even then it isn't about strength, but rather who controls the website. Moderators get to control which group dominates, and it's usually the left.

Honestly, both parties have been weak since the Roosevelts. The reason establishment Republicans hate Trump so much is precisely because he's aggressive; the GOP isn't supposed to do anything, their job is to keep the Democrats from doing anything.

The Democrats's job is to either offer legislation people like so it can be struck-down by the GOP or to propose "compromises" that people don't like, but will allow them to ignore the issue for years. That's why establishment Democrats didn't like Bernie: he wanted to actually get stuff done.

Trump and Bernie are both pretty weak, though. Trump couldn't even ban a Chinese spy-ware app (TikTok), and Bernie didn't even make demands when he dropped out and endorsed Biden.

I've always had little chicken pox scars on my cheeks

Dang. I've just got a lot of acne scars that take a long time to go away... They're easy to cover up most the time, but sometimes there's just no way to do it.

Light eye makeup and lip stains or balms (the texture is neat and helps create a distraction from stress instead of just biting at them; looks pretty)

I don't like using too much eye make-up either, but I'll put on some eyeliner and mascara. I've never used lip-stains, so I wouldn't know. I've been using purple lip-gloss, but I'm not sure how I feel about it. The color is subtle, though, which is nice; it seems like lip-stick would have too much.

Skin problems usually get worse with foundation anyway, it creates a vicious cycle of clogged pores and bacterial chaos.

Yeah, that's why I don't wear it that much, and try to wash it off as soon as possible.

Gov. Hutchinson signs Stand Your Ground and Voter ID bills into law by TheAmeliaMay in Arkansas

  • The "Stand Your Ground" Bill is now law

  • A voter ID law targeting provisional ballots is now law

  • Governor Hutchinson voiced support for a hate crime bill

  • He criticized the new federal stimulus bill being debated

  • He stated support for a bill to allow the legislature to end a state of emergency declared by the Governor

  • A pro-life bill to ban most abortions in Arkansas will reach his desk soon, but he hasn't stated whether or not he'll sign it

  • He established a task force to examine how utilities performed during the snow-storm

the 'radical right', who are traditionally the loudest and most aggressive in a network

I'd argue it's the radical left, because left-wing extremism has become the norm on websites like Reddit. The only reason you notice the alt-right is because they aren't as common as the alt-left — and usually what's considered "right-wing" is anything a step to the right of Karl Marx. I'm a Centrist, and they think I'm basically Hitler.

Reddit and other sites will delete disinformation and misinformation, partially because much of it is pushed by highly organized, well-paid propaganda companies, shills and influencers, in order to manufacture consent

Yeah, they'll get rid of misinformation they don't like, but nine times out of ten they remove content with the express purpose to manipulate the narrative and push an agenda.

It seems like a great idea until the President randomly becomes a psychotic, Communist dictator, and Congress is full of Karens trying to make cutting in line a felony, meanwhile the Vice President is too busy getting black-out drunk to ever show up. That's hyperbolic, but you get the point.

Don't get me wrong, I literally proposed Supreme Court Justices be randomly selected, however, I also said the pool should be elected and appointed, because we can't have some random pedophile getting on the court and ruling that child molestation is now legal.

Sortition also makes politicians unaccountable. You'll see a trend of politicians doing something heavily disfavored of by their constituents the term before they're set to retire. Furthermore, there would be no mechanism for political change, just random people with no idea what they're doing, and not a single care in the world for what the People want. These are actually good things for judicial offices, though, since it makes them more impartial.

It's really fucking annoying, you can't even swear anymore.

Mhm. You can't say certain words either, like Nazis, which is why I said "Not-sees".

Because of EU YouTube also forces you to provide identification in order to get past age restricted videos now

Never happened to me.

which is just insane to me.. and some people actually advocate for this sort of thing.

It sounds like a good idea on paper, but YouTube gets to decide which videos are age-restricted, and more often than not: it's based on politics. They restricted a bunch of PragerU videos, but refused to censor Vox videos on the same subjects.

What would be a good idea, however, is to specifically target pornography — but that shouldn't be done at the website-level, because it would be a breach of privacy. Instead, I propose blocking it at the ISP-level (you have to be an adult to buy Internet, so no ID is required), and requiring people to manually enable pornographic websites in their router's settings. You could get around it if you wanted to, but the point isn't to prevent the content from being accessed, just to make it harder to do so.

The YouTube comment section are probably the least brightest bunch of people though

True, but Redditors might be slightly dumber.

I had my comment on a video automatically removed once, even though I didn't say anything that would trigger the robots, and the guy who uploaded the video had to manually approve it. I had the same thing happen on a few of my videos too, so I turned filtering off entirely.

And the YouTube moderators do occasionally remove comments, but Google is so stingy that they won't hire enough employees to actually moderate, instead employing an army of robots that almost always get it wrong. Just about every major YouTuber has had at least one of their videos removed by the robot for no reason.

I actually recently got kicked off my discord Cripplingalcoholism server for having a relationship that isn't gender normative. Not even like I'm drastically bending social norms, my wife just makes more money than I do. That still invokes feelings of disgust.

Yeah, it's kind of similar to that. People tend to expect humans with penises to make more money than humans with vaginas.

I really love the word ain't.

Ain't you from Texas?

Growing up my teachers liked to say "ain't ain't a word,"

That's Yankee imperialism for ya. Empires always impose their language upon their colonies in order to strip the natives of their identity — that's what the federal school system was designed to do. The only way to save the South is to restore our tenth amendment right to educate our kids.

but it's a nice southern touch if you ask me.

It's not simply a "southern touch", it's a protest against imperialism! Honestly, if I had to choose one word to symbolize Dixie's struggle for sovereignty, it'd be "ain't".

Gillette made shaving your legs a thing to sell razor blades. Seriously.

Yep. Hard to argue that's a bad thing, though. I personally shave everywhere just because it makes me feel cleaner, lol.

Make up is just about attracting a mate, lots of animals do it too.

I don't think so. Married women wear make-up, asexual women wear make-up, etc. It's just about looking presentable. And even then, it doesn't explain why right-wingers think it's only for humans with vaginas.

Thanks, I guess. Obviously, people have to have sex to make babies, I just don't like it.

Transgenderism is quite simple: society expects people to behave in certain ways according to whether they have a penis or a vagina, even if the behaviors are entirely unrelated, but some people behave differently than the expectation.

I ain't sure how certain behaviors became associated with genitals, such as wearing make-up and shaving your legs, but others make more sense: women have kids, so naturally they take care of them, and that leaves men with the responsibility to work.

They probably mean feminine behavior — but I honestly wouldn't even say that, since liberal women ain't all that feminine. If I had to choose a single word to describe how liberals behave, it would be "animalistic".

What woman would kill her own baby? What father would allow his child to be murdered? No real woman would have an abortion, and no real man would allow it — but animals are savage, they often kill their own babies for little or no reason, and that's exactly how Liberals behave.

BREAKING: 62% OF AMERICANS Want A THIRD PARTY, Democrats Have LOWEST MEMBERSHIP EVER, JUST 25% by NewsJunkie in politics

[–]TheAmeliaMay 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

My initial concern was with the claim that only 25% identify as Democrats, which is absolutely false.

Oh, I misunderstood what you where saying. It seems obvious in retrospect. But yeah, that part's a lie — or maybe they're just using another survey with different results, but considering the domain name... they probably just pulled the number out of their ass.

regarding those who would be happy with a 3rd party, I am in that category

Ah, same here. I actually made s/ThirdParty a while back, but haven't posted there in a while.

and think Bernie could have won on that platform.

Mhm.

The reason he's not run on a 3rd platform is because it takes votes away from Democrats, who would have lost the popular vote in the past two elections.

Yeah, the Presidential election is heavily rigged in favor of the major parties. Third parties can do well locally, though, given they have adequate leadership — which they almost never do.

I was an Independant voter, but changed to Democrat after the abuses of the second Reagan term

I feel really young (because I am).

(taking money from Social Security, Iran/Contra, borrowing from China, establishing lobbying as an official channel and thus money in politics &c).

Yeah, Reagan was pretty bad. On top of that, he caused the 2008 recession by deregulating anything that moved. Yet he still won in a landslide...

Ross Perot helped Clinton win with only 43% of the vote (Bush 37%, Perot 19%).

Perot still managed to get a huge share of the vote. His major failures where:

  1. Forming the Reform Party too late

  2. Not getting name recognition first

So it is a good question, but needs qualification with the historical numbers: are we ready for a 3rd party?

We're always ready for a third party, but third parties aren't ready for us. What I mean, is that every current party is incapable of winning elections, because they have poor leadership and the wrong goals.

Honestly, I think third parties should ignore federal politics. It's a waste of time and resources, because you'll never even get five percent of the vote until you have momentum, and the only way to get momentum is to go local. It's a lot easier to run for and win local elections, especially in "safe" districts, where the other major party won't even run a candidate (like mine).

I'm honestly considering making a state-level political party. It seems crazy, but it's worked in the past: the Farmer—Labor Party of Minnesota, as well as the Readjuster Party of Virginia, managed to secure near complete dominance over their states for years, despite having very little to do with national politics.

I hope that made sense. I'm really tired right now, should probably be going to bed.

Here's a better source.

Just because you lean Democrat, or even if you consider yourself a Democrat, that doesn't mean you don't want a third party. I'm sure AOC would leave the Democratic Party if a socialist party became viable, and Trump supporters would flock to the Patriot Party if it was formed.

Matter of fact, the sources states the following:

Independents are usually much more likely than Republicans or Democrats to favor a third political party, but in the current poll, Republicans are nearly as likely as independents to hold this view, 63% to 70%. That represents a dramatic shift for Republicans since last September when 40% favored a third party.

A pretty sizable majority of people who consider themselves Republicans want a third party — only three points away from two-thirds.

For a few months, when I was about eleven or twelve, I lived in a house with a one- or two-inch gap between the wall and floor that just went right outside — and that's legal! (I think; not legal advice) I remember dropping my 3DS stylus under there one time, and my mom was not enthused about crawling under the house for it...

I'm starting to like this Gazaway guy. He voted for the "Stand Your Ground" bill, as well as HB1368, which was an anti-corruption bill that failed by one vote. My representative voted for both of those, and he better vote for this bill too.

Before you doxx whatever IP addresses you have attributed to me

You literally posted a picture of yourself on infogalactic with your name and address as the caption. I don't think it's possible to doxx you any more than you've doxxed yourself.

All of his IP addresses do list his city as their location, though, if that counts for anything.

I've used almost twenty IP addresses across five ranges (I think, not sure how to count them)... but that might be because I've moved three times since making my account (long story) — and I'm pretty sure one's my phone's data.

Arkansas Legislature Passes "Stand Your Ground" Bill, Now Goes To Governor by TheAmeliaMay in Arkansas

Took months to do it, but they finally got it out of committee by one vote, and it passed in both chambers by a land-slide. I'm fairly certain the Governor will sign it.

They call the bill "controversial", but really it was just crazy Democrats blocking it. They only have around one-fourth of the seats in the House, yet they have nine out of nine-teen of the seats on the House Judiciary Committee. Who allowed this to happen?

You want me to slow down, and that's what I want, but he wants the entire site destroyed. He's no longer an innocent bystander, he opposes any kind of reform I propose, simply because I proposed it — and he opposes it not with truth, not with logic, but rather with lies created specifically to cause turmoil.

I thought he'd at least try to be reasonable when trying to convince me of his views, but he's gone off the deep end with lxxxviii, loki88, mega16, specialsauces, bobbobbybob, and the others who seek the demise of SaidIt. I'm really disappointed, because I liked him.

If he truly believed me leaving is the best for SaidIt: he wouldn't be concocting lies to those ends, now would he?

No, it doesn't. It literally says I'll only ban him for advocating violence, which he didn't do.

The comment wasn't removed, and the user wasn't banned.

I meant that you and u/bobbobbybob interacting doesn't seem that valuable to this being a conducive environment.

It isn't; bob's sole goal is to drag discussion down the Pyramid of Debate. But there has been one positive aspect: his behavior and motives are now widely know.

you to come up with some crazy ass story about how I'm with some weird group...

You advocate for them, thus you are for them. You serve their interests, rather than the site's, whether you intend to, or even know it.

Maybe take a break from the internet for a few hours or something

I do plan on taking a break.

Then why do you comment? Why do you not flee back to 4chan? The answer is simple: your goal is to divide the user-base and ultimately destroy SaidIt — this has become apparent; you have allied yourself with the enemy.

We are witnessing the elimination and distortion of free speech protections right before our eyes. You are very wrong.

The last time I checked his comment wasn't removed, and he wasn't banned. You're just another astroturfer pretending like saying a lie enough times makes it true.

Saying that you admire Hitler is NOT ADVOCATING FOR VIOLENCE.

Strawman; I never said that.

Simply saying that you admire a person does not mean that you approve of everything they did in their life.

no, i dont track anything.. i do see a little notation in a dos prompt window on my screen when somebody hits that page.. it is just a mock up page for now..

Oh, huh.

dont you know that when you use tor that i cant see your ip address? because when you use tor browser, your page request bounces to one server and then another and then another and then it hits me... something like that.. so i just see the ip address of the most recent server in that sequence of hops..

That's why I opened it in TOR. I'm not sure if onion links even work in normal browsers, but I won't take the risk. Brave should automatically open them in TOR mode, but it doesn't.

f i told you that i maybe have only days to live, and that i am trying to not lose my mind in the process, would you believe me?

I think you alluded to that when we first met. Are you bipolar, btw?

You appear to be being defensive

The correct word is offensive. I'm not the one investing all my resources into a single attack, and then becoming desperate when it doesn't work.

you've mistaken my cynical view of the Reddit shelf-life for my desire to see it collapse.

That's not why; you're trying to foster division and spread lies.

You're the reason it's collapsing currently.

Even though it was actually started by the ironleft folks, to which Magnora can attest. And didn't they attack when I was gone? Hmm... what a coincidence...

but doing this shit where talking about some positive aspects of Hitler, whether they exist or not, all without mentioning "Jews" gets you banned for "advocating violence"

I never banned anyone for supporting Hitler. I banned two people for repeated name-calling and advocating violence, and have since reversed both bans.

I also banned the 'Americans' bot a gazillion times, but I don't think anyone's upset with that, lol.

I explicitly like what magnora has been doing and don't want this website to collapse.

You're fucking up royally.

You know he told me you'd do this, right? He said you and the malicious entity you represent would attempt to divide the admins against each other — and is this not what you, and the others, have been working towards?

I just think the Reddit model is doomed to inevitable schisms specifically because of what you're doing.

No, because of what you're doing.

I hereby declare the collapse of this website imminent.

Because you're working towards it; that was your goal since the get-go.

Advocating violence is against site rules; I didn't write the rules.

You explicitly said, "I will, however, charge you for advocating violence if you do so, so be wary of that."

Advocating violence is against site rules. I didn't write them, btw.

He then said, "I admire the fuck out of Hitler".

That isn't advocating violence; he's allowed to say that, and was allowed to.

He asked if he could express his admiration for it and then he expressed his admiration for it.

Yes, and he didn't get banned for that, now did he?

You said you would charge him for advocating for violence.

Advocating violence is against the rules, so yes, if he ever does that, which I don't believe he has: he'll be dealt with.
