We're almost there now. My son had an old barn blow down by a small tornado, then, about 10 months later, he had a few shingles blow off of his house roof. The barn paid out at like $15,000 and the shingle claim was like $1200. He just found out that his policy won't renew because he had 2 claims in a year. The agent told him he should have paid the shingle claim out of pocket after the fact. My son asked, "why didn't you tell me?" No response. He went to another insurance company and they told him the same thing. His current policy expires in May and after that he's screwed. And this is in Ohio. He'll probably find insurance but the premiums will be out the roof. 2 acts of god, things he couldn't control and they treated him like a multiple DUI offender. I've had my insurance with the same broker for 50 years and I never heard of this before. It's like you get one strike but the second one will get you cancelled. I think they're forcing people to pay smaller claims out of pocket in order to keep insurance for the "big one". These bloodsuckers are no better if not worse than our so called health insurance in this country,

The war on Gaza, backed by the West, is a demonstration that the West is willing to cross all lines. That it will discard any nuance of humanity. That it is willing to commit genocide. That it will do everything to prevent international organizations to intervene against this. That it is willing to eliminate everyone and everything that resists it. Those nations who commit themselves to multi-polarity should steel themselves for what might be visited on them.

We, the adult American people are guilty. We allow the psychopaths running this country to commit these atrocities. Until we decide enough is enough it will continue.

Anything Joe Rogan is pirated as well as most big time sporting events. Whatever is popular get's stolen. I've seen whole videos stolen but more often it's pieces of a whole video. Which to me is almost as bad. If you watch Rogan you'll see how careful he is not to post someone else's content. I think it could be a weapon but it's definitely a bunch of lazy lowlifes capitalizing on other people's work and also greedy youtube not wanting to enforce their own policies.

If nothing else SOTU laid bare the utter fraudulence of the Biden presidency. It is harder to make the case of lesser evilism or holding one’s nose to vote when the betrayals are so blatant. Claims of moving Biden to the left or holding feet to the fire were always made by the cynical to the naïve. Both the con artists and their targets have a lot of explaining to do when Biden used the SOTU speech to appeal directly to the Trump voters we are otherwise told to view as deplorable.


BIDEN'S BIBI PROBLEM (Seymour Hersh) by RandomCollection in WayOfTheBern

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

On October 7, the prime minister was in the middle of a widely publicized criminal trial on fraud, breach of trust, and bribery charges that, according to Israeli media, he was destined to lose and face potentially more than a decade in jail. His administration was repeatedly warned by its intelligence services, and America’s, that Hamas had been training for months for a cross-border attack on a group of lightly defended kibbutzim a few miles away in southern Israel, with a goal of seizing IDF soldiers as hostages from a lightly defended nearby intelligence unit. That mission turned into the carnage that horrified Israel and the world. The IDF’s failure to respond to the intelligence was Netanyahu’s fault, in the sense that the buck always stops at the top.

I have no doubt Netanyahu and Israeli intelligence knew about Hamas's plan. They let it happen in order to give a reason to remove all Palestinians from Gaza, one way or another. How many times have we seen this shit happen in human history, and of course, the US's 911 and it's aftermath?

And funniest of all, stop dumping billions$$ into the Ukraine blackhole? This shit makes my head hurt.

Ralph Nader: Good News — Big Opportunities on the Horizon by RandomCollection in WayOfTheBern

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

Nader made it clear that he won’t be formally endorsing Biden, still supports third parties in principle and personally praises likely Green Party 2024 candidate Cornel West, but he has little hope for the party’s chances as a whole in the upcoming election.

“I know the difference between fascism and autocracy, and I’ll take autocracy any time,” Nader said in a telephone interview with the Post. “Fascism is what the GOP is the architecture of, and autocracy is what the Democrats are practitioners of. But autocracy leaves an opening. They don’t suppress votes. They don’t suppress free speech.”In an interview with The Washington Post released Monday, former Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader said he is supporting President Biden’s 2024 reelection bid.

"They (meaning democrats I assume) don't suppress votes or free speech". My guess old Ralph hasn't been paying attention. Who's actually the "most fascist" party these days? Note: I have nothing but disgust for the GOP but today, IMO, they're heads above the dems.

He definitely fits the bill for being a kleptoparasite. Now we need to work in the lying part.

Pathological lying was first identified in 1891 by psychiatrist Anton Delbrück. He gave it the Latin name pseudologia fantastica (sometimes spelled phantastica). Pathological lying is also known as mythomania and morbid lying.

Edit: Mythomaniac kleptoparasite - a lying thieving leech.

I have to agree a little bit with this but probably for a different reason. As long as we continue to use computers in our elections, whether to vote on and/or to count the votes, I firmly believe there is no integrity in the process. And yes, I do believe there is rigging. But if we go to paper hand counted ballots, like most other modern and not so modern countries, we could restore the lost integrity.
