Looks like the civil police in Brazil don't understand the purpose of a gun range. Stupid.

Issue regarding the pornographic rule by HorseMeat in SaidIt

I think for Saidit to not end up where Reddit and Voat have, some boundaries have to be drawn. In addition to the debate pyramid, pornography is one of those boundaries set by the developers (who have not been profit driven) to help set the tone of discourse.

I support not having porn on Saidit.

Yea, no active pages of any type, but very lightweight - could be used to archive a lot of information.

April 19, 2019 Topic- Is Illegal Immigration a Financial Drain on the US Economy? by SecretlyHistoric in PoliticalDebate

[–]fred_red_beans 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Perhaps OP is only looking to answer the question of illegal immigration and it's financial impacts, but I have to consider the context of the question. Is it a drain or a benefit? Hard to tell really, as it's illegal and off the books. However, we do know that it in no way compares with a 716 Billion dollar US "defense" budget.

For instance, Venezuela is a country of people with a democratically elected leader who want to stay in their own country, yet the US government is pushing for their own agenda. To say that we need to block immigration to the US because of the financial impact yet also say that we should use the US military, which has a far higher economic impact, to "help" the people of Venezuela is hypocritical in the least.

Also, should a community, nation, region, tribe, what have you - have the right to sovereignty and the right to refuse individuals in order to preserve their own culture and values?

I am personally not too concerned about illegal immigration and it's effects upon my livelyhood, I am however concerned about the US and NATO bases plastered across the world and their foriegn wars and interventions causing mass immigration.

These are my thoughts, hopefully not too off-topic.

Saidit keeps getting nonsense frontpage generalizations about liberals so I thought I'd help balance it out with some Conservative Paradise by EndlessSunflowers in conspiracy

But eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind

Agreed. This is why I believe it's better to debate specific ideas or topics rather than argue broad generalizations. People are always going to have differences in opinion, knowledge, and perception. I think by listening to another's point of view and attempting to understand, one can at least accept and perhaps find some commonalities. By making broad generalizations and characterizations it makes it harder to learn from and communicate with each other.

Conservatives are nazis?

I don't think this is a fair characterization of conservatism and just feeds the into the right vs left paradigm of divide and conquer.
