Is this a good alternative to reddit? by IamCleaver in SaidIt

[–]TheAmeliaMay 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

The issue that I had with reddit are ludicrously complicated posting rules on each subreddit and absolutely ruthless deleting of threads.

Most subs on SaidIt don't even have a list of rules, and most of the ones that do just copy one or more site-wide rules.

3/4 of my threads got deleted for arbitrary reasons.

It's actually against site-wide rules for a moderator to remove your posts unless:

A. it breaks site-wide rules or is off-topic, or

B. the sub has been removed from s/all and clearly lists the rules in its side-bar

You can contact u/d3rr if you think someone has violated this rule. M7 seems to be back (even if he's ignoring me) so maybe you could talk to him too, IDK, I quit being an admin a while back and quit paying attention to who's doing what.

Is this forum good place to start controversial discussions?

Yep! You're allowed to have any kind of opinion you want, so long as you don't promote violence (which people have gotten away with too). I'm pretty sure whatever you want to talk about is allowed.

So an admittedly imperfect system should be able to administer the death penalty?

Ideally, no, but the solution is to just fix the system. We could temporarily suspend it until the system is fixed, but you have to fix it to do that in the first place, so it seems unnecessary.

Like I said in the post: no one in the right mind would suggest legalizing every crime just because the punishments are misused.

Not a Zionist, though; he basically said to pay taxes to Caesar in Mark 12:13-17. For obvious reasons, the Zealots (who were the closest thing to Zionists back then) didn't want to do that. Also, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't approve of Israel's treatment of Palestinians; see Mark 12:31.

Why do we subsidize the defense of wealthy First World nations that can easily afford it?

I think the US would have a score of 4.2 using this metric, which means only six members of NATO (shown on this map) have a higher number: Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Norway, Finland, Estonia, and Lithuania. Spain, the Netherlands, and Czechia all have a score of half (2.1) or less.

If they expect our support: they should at least have a 4.0. To be honest, we should leave anyways, since the Cold War's been over for decades and Russia already owns Europe with its oil exports, so they really have no reason to invade. Maybe they'll screw up Ukraine, but why should Americans die for Ukraine?

And then they turn around and call us baby killing monsters.

And they're the ones pushing abortion...

Capitalism already creates artificial inflation to the point where next to no one can survive on the minimum wage, and it ain't like we can't tax the rich for once or privatize money pits like Amtrak.

Capitalism and fiat currency is the reason for inflation, not helping the poor — although I'm sure your daddy told you that as he handed you free money so you'd never have to work a day in your life.

Did you know milk doesn't naturally contain vitamin D? They add it in as a way to try to convince people to buy more of it. Also, most human beings are lactose-intolerant, so it obviously ain't necessary enough to warrant it's own section on the food pyramid. It's also super fatty, so you should really try alternatives unless you want to gain weight.

There are so many crazy conspiracies like this that are true, but no one really talks about.

I never understood the "Feed the Children" foreign aid charity. Why would you want to save a bunch of kids that are going to grow up to be terrorists and kill your children or grandchildren.

I'm against foreign aid because American taxes should go to American citizens — especially when so many of our own are in poverty — but you shouldn't blame the children of terrorists for their parents' crimes. I agree on the policy, but not the sentiment.

In this case do we really need more useless eaters that reproduce indiscriminantly and on the taxpayer's dime.

Calling children "useless eaters" pisses me off, to be honest. Everyone was a child at some point in their life, and all children under a certain age are innocent — or at the very least incapable of understanding their sinful actions — so to say they don't deserve to eat is pure evil. No child should be punished because their parents are too poor or neglectful to give them lunch money! And people like you claim to support family values? What a joke. Fiscal conservative? More like fake Conservative!

We're talking about abortion, not alcohol.

You're going to be constantly fighting an uphill battle to get people to agree to both prohibiting alcohol and accepting transgenderism.

In Arkansas, most people are pro-life and anti-alcohol; we have more dry counties than every state other than Kentucky and the Prohibition Party does the best here out of any state.

Most people have never met an LGBT person, and tend to be respectful, even if they disagree. They'll be more willing to accept me when they realize I share most of their political views; a major reason the right is queerphobic is because they can't find any common ground with us, but they can with me (even if I'm a unicorn in this regard).

Musky just has a personal vendetta against me, and thinks his mental break-downs somehow affect me beyond arousing amusement or apathy, depending on the content of each, individual rant.

For some reason, he randomly mentioned me in a comment thread I had nothing to do with just to hurl an insult. I might block him if he continues to harass me; he's clearly gone insane (likely from his alcoholism) and is no longer the same man I once called my friend.

Anyways, this conversation is done and I'll just ignore him if he tries to continue it.

What a load of crap, they choose to work at the company.

Libertarians always say this, as if workers not wanting to be unemployed means everyone can pay slave wages. You pretend like they can just apply for a job at a competitor and suddenly get better wages, hours, working conditions, etc. The cereal industry is an oligopoly, so there's little real choice for workers or consumers.

Furthermore, workers have a right to ask for more pay. The decision is still up to the employer, so I don't see what you're trying to get at. Do you want to make the minimum wage $0.00 so you can pay your employees a few pennies an hour while you horde all the wealth?

When I see this crap I can understand why company's hire illegals.

You're this close to realizing that Capitalism is a degenerate economic system.

Avg. Base Salary $83k/ year or $22.20/ hour, $9k Avg. Bonus. Production Operator $18 hr, Machine Operator $21 hr

The averages are misleading, since a lot of people make less than the average. The link you gave at the bottom says the minimum pay for a Packer or Laborer is $8/hour — which is less than the minimum wage in deep-red Arkansas.

Also, IDK where they're getting these numbers from; they just say:

When PayScale has limited employee submitted data, we estimate pay ranges based on a broader set of relevant profiles

Which means nothing.

[–]TheAmeliaMay[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

School lunches will never be good.

It's better than starving. I know first-hand how crappy it can be, but I'd rather eat a piece of square pizza that tastes like card-board than go all day hungry.

Far better to get families to learn and provide healthy food on the cheap which suits their kid's individual needs.

Some of them can't, because they're poor, or won't, because they're too busy shooting up meth. I've known a lot of kids who relied on free school lunches (back when they were determined by income) and plenty of kids who were denied free lunches, but couldn't afford to buy them.

In neither case is it the child's fault, in neither case should the child be punished, in neither case should the child go hungry. I know way too many children who had to go hungry for one reason or another, and it pisses me off when people say they don't deserve to eat.

But that's difficult and dosen't give liberals instant good feelz.

And it leaves kids hungry.

And no, not everyone who supports this is a Liberal; there are plenty of Conservatives, like me, who actually care about family values rather than shilling for billionaires — yanno, the people pushing abortion, open borders, and other liberal agenda.

It also highlights which kids are being abused and neglected which upsets the notion poor kids fail due to finances alone, we can't have that.

So you're fine with kids starving just so you can own the libs?

Or skip the issue altogether and move to a more sensible form of voting.

Fuck abstinence and the stupid horse abstinence rode in on. You can't deny human nature and humans are animals and animals love fucking.

You have to deny human nature if you want to be united with God. Worldly desire is what ties us to this plane of existence, and worldly desire will be what drags your soul into the fires of hell — only desire to be one with God shall set you free of the cycle of suffering and death.

And drinking.

Your premise is dependent upon conservative families producing conservative babies. I don't think that's correct.

The chance of becoming a Conservative is higher if you're raised in a conservative house-hold or community, even if most young people are far-left Democrats. Regardless, that ain't even my premise; my premise revolves around electoral votes and House seats.

We've had education systems turning kids into liberals for basically the entirety of history and yet there's still conservatives.

There's increasingly less Conservatives — especially in positions of power — and most of those who remain are obsessed with economic Libertarianism, at the expense of social Conservatism.

A lot of Liberals become conservative over time, too; either they change their views or their goals are achieved.

No amount, or lack, of baby murder will change that either way.

It's less about decreasing the number Conservatives and more about decreasing the number of Liberals in conservative states who contribute to that state's EV/House seat count while having no ability to affect the outcome of elections there.

Although less unwanted babies translates into less future crime

That ain't how crime works. Most crime is caused by:

  1. Urbanization,

  2. Parental incompetence,

  3. A culture of immorality, or

  4. Poverty

Abortion solves none of these. Urbanization can only be solved by encouraging people to move to rural areas. Parental incompetence can only be solved by promoting responsibility, abstinence, etc. A culture of immorality can only by solved by social Conservatism and the destruction of the ultra-liberal billionaire-class. Poverty can only be solved through welfare and economic growth.

Is enough to tell you he's a left-wing shill account. Everyone should block him right away; u/Jesus already proved these kinds of people make more money the more you comment on their posts.

Yeah, it's insane.

I know there are many people in the LGBT+ community who can't stand this crap, maybe even the majority

So'm similar is the issue of abortion. Publicly, most LGBT people support abortion up to the moment of birth, but in private: I've known many who consider it to be murder — even Libertarians who consider it a violation of their NAP.

The reason for this secrecy is that they fear being ostracized by the "community" after already being ostracized by so many people on account of their queerness. I've said it before: the LGBT "community" has become a cult, where anyone who disagrees with the leadership is shunned.

I, however, refuse to remain silent about my beliefs.

Electoral Votes Should Be Proportional – Amelia May Johnson by TheAmeliaMay in politics

That's why it says "should be" instead of "are." You can click the title to read the article.

The current system wasn't intended by the founders either; they wanted us to select electors, representing Independent candidates, who could then vote their conscience. The Tenth Amendment, however, allows states to change anything the Constitution doesn't talk about — which means they can bind electors or allocate them proportionally. They can't, however, opt out of having electors.

This system was ingenious back when traveling to your state's capitol would take weeks; if a candidate died, or if a scandal erupted right after the election, electors could just vote for someone else. Today, though, it's quite outdated — and the founders knew this time would come, which is why they allowed for constitutional amendments.

What I propose doesn't need an amendment, since states can just choose X electors from one party and X electors from another, but it would be ideal, since it would change the system nation-wide and prevent inconsistencies.

I've been doing that on the Internet here and there. I posted a rant to YouTube a while back about how they're trying to put black and brown stripes on the rainbow flag to represent non-white people, which is woke and stupid. There's also a version with a hooker symbol on it, which sounds like a right-wing meme, but it was created by leftists, LOL.

it puts India alongside America which it is not

India is anti-CCP; they have conflicting territorial claims and the CCP supports communist rebels there. They also hate Pakistan, which is an Islamist theocracy that created the Taliban.

This naturally makes it an ally of the United States, which also hates the CCP and Pakistan.

anti Anglo-British Empires

Just because they don't like the UK doesn't mean they don't like the US. We don't want to colonize them like the Brits did (and we also broke away from their Empire).

and leans Russian and did during the Coldwar

India only signed a treaty with the USSR once Nixon — a secret Communist installed after another Communist assassinated JFK under suspicious circumstances — sided with Pakistan and the CCP. The US, under JFK, had previously supported India during their border dispute with the CCP.

Regardless, the Cold War ended a long time ago. The US now considers India a "Major Defense Partner," India bought $3B worth of military equipment from the US back in 2020, and they signed an intelligence sharing agreement later that year.

More info.

India and Russia have pretty good relations (68% of the Indian military's equipment came from Russia), but that doesn't mean they can't also have good relations with the US.

One thing is certain, though: if Russia sides with Pakistan or the CCP, India will completely ditch them in favor of the United States — that's literally the reason they "sided" with the USSR in the first place (although I doubt they would'a went to war against the US if things went hot).

and is now part of Brics.

BRICS ain't a military alliance; it started out as an acronym just to refer to a few countries Goldman Sachs wanted to invest in. They like to pretend like they're an economic pact like ASEAN, but they ain't actually done very much.

Also, it'd be retarded to pretend like Brazil would ever go to war with the US.

Cool to find another WIAH viewer here...

His theories make a lot of sense, in my opinion; he relies on a lot of statistics and makes logical arguments, as opposed to emotional ones.

PS: you can post his alternate history videos to s/alternatehistory, which I forgot I made until just now.

Modern transgenderism seems to treat the first kind of story are real already. Transgenders seek to enjoy a technological transformation. This seems unwise and ill judged.

The problem really is modern transgenderism — or more accurately: liberal transgenderism. LGBT Conservatives tend to act much better than LGBT Leftists.

Perhaps you will be able to change your sex in 2321, but the technology isn't here yet.

Most transgender folks don't think they can change their sex — it's usually cisgender Liberals who say crap like that (and usually only on the Internet) — and a lot of us, including me, don't want SRS.

I don't know how you're define "sex." Most transgender people who want a "sex change" just wants SRS, which means a fake vagina or penis.

Very few actually want to be able to sexually reproduce as the opposite sex (especially transgender women, for obvious reasons).

Pretty much no one wants to change their chromosomes, since there ain't really a reason to — they affect how your body develops, but I don't think changing them would suddenly change all your physical traits.

The only sane way to proceed is to picture yourself as the protagonist of the second kind of story. Does anybody even have to know about your personal disaster?

Your story says she's a real woman who got put in a man's body, so why should she be forced to behave like a man? Can she not live her life as she always have, but just adapt it to her new anatomy?

I'm transgender and not an SJW, so maybe you'll like me.

posted here because Reddit don't like it when you talk shit about their favorite crowd

Reddit's partially owned by the CCP's Tencent, which should tell you all you need to know about why it's become a censorship cesspool.

r/Neoliberal thinks I'm a Fascist for some reason, LOL! I never posted there, but SJWs have a tendency to sniff out stuff to get offended at. These same people would call me a Communist, if I started talking about codetermination, though.

While I'm normally fine with transgenders as a whole, I'm not fine with the ones who are such a whirlwind of indecisiveness and of destructive qualities to themselves and others around them.

As a transgender woman, I've found it quite difficult to be friends with other trans-folks, for these reasons, and political correctness — especially in regards to abortion, for some reason. The LGBT "Community" seems to care more about baby-murder than they do about actual LGBT stuff.

They're just broken people who refuse to sit down, recollect themselves and figure shit out by the day. They just want everything by a fingersnap of a notice.

Most LGBT people are Liberals, and this is how pretty much all Liberals act.

Jokes aside, I've met plenty of trans-folks who act like that. Most LGBT people think supporting each-other means supporting each-other's flaws, which breeds toxicity.

I don't even think they're transgender,

A lot of transgender people are just going through a phase, which is why I've always supported banning SRS for minors (which my home state of Arkansas finally did). I think it should be 25 for bottom surgery, though, since that's, on average, when the brain is fully developed.

On the Internet, a lot of "transgender" people are just doing it for attention or out of some fetish. There's also shills and bots who claim to be trans. Most LGBT people on the Internet are quite toxic, but it gets better in real life.

Because I feel that those that aren't treating transgender and their transitioning as seriously as others, don't deserve to be in that crowd.

That's my opinion, pretty much, which offends both the left and the right (most of my opinions do, to be honest).

Don't read my CSS code, it's so disorganized right now, LOL!

99% of it's work-arounds since the theme I used doesn't let me customize much, but it's a good theme, so I didn't want to change it. I was originally gon'o write my own, but it's a bit too complicated, and I wanted to focus on writing articles first.

Mexicans own guns too! Also, plenty of Mexicans were unhappy with Santa Anna's military dictatorship other than Texans — especially the Liberals (the left-wing political faction at the time).

The only people offended by this are the people who want to take it.

Yep.
