I agree. I suppose I'm moderately cynical, displeased and venting.
I can't be sure, but i think it's through special coronavirus federal funding that they've activated the national guard, not through regular state funding.
So really, it is ultimately the feds doing this, just state governors who are henchmen, doing the bidding of the feds. These governors have had years to try to figure out how to slow the influx of The Blue, and nobody cared.
Ultimately, as we progress and move socialist, the people cannot have weapons to defend themselves. There can be only one master. Once you've relinquished your rights, you don't get them back. I'm fairly certain that's where we are.
People seemingly argue whether there was actually 3 percent who wanted the revolution, if the current times are any indicator that seems about right. I've been really dismayed at the levels of socialist idealism and freedom capitulation from random folks I've been hearing out and about dealing with all this lockdown stuff.
Yesterday I just slightly pushed back on the owner of a gas station yesterday on the idea of locking everyone down, he looked appalled and i know if it were a very soon to be time, he would phone the police on me as i walked out with my purchase.
It's hard for me to believe that's where we are is all. But this is the way of all societies in history. And as Tolkien wrote, "that is not for your to decide, all you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you"

This isn't federal though.
Why shouldn't a state be allowed to expel residents of any state it wishes?
I think this is ok. In fact, i think governors from all states should hunt down any individual who has paid state taxes within the past 5 or 10 years to New York, New Jersey, Illinois, California, Pennsylvania or Massachusetts, seize their assets and send them back to their home state.
I'd have a problem if this were the feds doing this, but states should have the right to determine its borders, including keeping out illegal aliens, including illegal aliens that are residents of a different state.

Oops, just checked again..
That was a partial layout to the original. They apparently modified it slightly. Here's the doc, i haven't had the chance to go through it yet because my state is now in lockdown, and the panic this has induced has made it impossible to get certain staples or other items and I've been searching for them because of this, beyond the obvious toilet paper that everyone has been hoarding for the past 2 weeks.
We are planning on moving away from what was once a considered a moderate or even right leaning state but is now is seemingly just a socialist/democratic stronghold once this is over. Write your governor and tell them to embrace federalism and the idea that they should be able to tell the feds to pound sand. There very well could be cause for needing federalism in the future.

But the real problem is that most of the people don't want their world view challenged. The idea that the access media lies to them and the govt (the U.N., state or federal or others) might be wrong, or worse that the govt cannot save them leads them down a path most of them cannot go. The idea that these entities aren't in control is far too much for them.

I disagree. Where's the rebellion in the streets? Governors in many states have enacted powers to limit your purchase of fuel, food, bullets and guns. No push back.
A lot of ppl are under"shelter in place" rules, cops can now stop you and question where you're going and if they deem it unnecessary, they can detain you indefinitely.

Was that sarcasm? If not, what a bunch of big city DNC public school groupthink talking point nonsense.
Poor people in every country have traditionally eaten garbage... because they're poor.
Climate differences can also adversely affect these people and specifically poor populations because in places that do not have winter, many diseases from insects humans and animals propagate year round. Because of such congestion, bats, rats and other vermin are in close proximity to humans at all times. It's foolishness to think this only happens there though.. In your beloved NYC, ppl might wanna believe the pigeons and rats there are better than other pigeons and rats, but they're still vermin.
But make no mistake, poor white folks eat just as bad, including even people today whose diet includes such wonderful items as liver, giblets, gizzards, chops, caviar.
Amongst the wealthy educated Americans, the diets of poor Americans are largely forbidden because they can afford to eat well and they teach their children that they should. Many of the processed foods, chips, fast foods, and frozen or microwavable meals are in the category of "occasional as needed" instead of "food staple".

Every state governor who believes in freedom needs to be actively limiting the emigration now and in the future of all residents from California, Illinois, new York, jersey and a few others.
The easiest way is to determine if these residents have ever paid state taxes to a state in the list and determine they aren't qualified for state citizenship.
That only slows the influx of incoming socialism, you still have to try to stem the stuff that's home grown somehow.
However, with the new 2 trillion bailouts approved today, i think it's fairly obvious that we are a fully socialized country. Many governors are also fascist, you are required under threat of arrest or indefinite detainment to stay in your house, while bums can wander as they please, state officials can freely go to gyms, auto mechanics and grocery store clerks are considered essential.

Then again, i still think Biden is the perfect candidate for them. He still has many lucid moments, they can wheel him out in front of cameras when needed talking as a centrist or moderate. Yet at the same time, Simone Sanders or others can put forth whatever they want behind the scenes and have Joe sign it without question.
The problem is getting the people to buy in to the fact that Joe is even remotely capable. They're doing the right thing by hiding him under the guise of quarantine. If they're lucky, they can push this thing until June or July, enough for a small break until the next cold and flu season starts.
The people are very willing to be led, as evidenced by the current "pandemic". The problem they're facing right now is that Trump is actually signing and putting forward fairly democratic and progressive policies, and he's also being helped by the fact that unfortunately not nearly enough people are dying due to this black death everyone is fearing right now. On top of this, he also enjoys status as the incumbent.
Most people will likely feel endeared by Trump's democratic and progressive agenda, and will either not go vote against him apathetically or they will choose to vote for him.

Nobody cares about Biden and little girls or little boys for that matter.
People and the media only care if you get caught. See R. Epstein, H. Weinstein, Matt Lauer, etc.
Everyone knows about it. Everyone accepts and even condones it, which is the case in the Weinstein story where women are complicit in sleeping with him as payment for movie roles but after he gets outed, they make claims and assassinate him to help make the appearance of justice and bury the story.
In the case of Epstein, i believe someone ordered his death. The power to disable surveillance systems and buy off the guards makes me believe this was someone in a high position of power likely within the DNC, or possibly both the DNC and GOP.

Joe Biden says he will choose a woman as VP: who will it be? by supertms38 in politics
My guess is someone up and coming.
Micaela Lara Cadena
There's another female in Kansas who's pretty far left
I could also see him doing a klobuchar.
The question is not who he will choose, it's who will his handlers choose. He likely can't figure out which pair of socks to wear. Joe might not make it through the entire term, even if he does, he is just a talking potato reading a monitor.
They've got to have someone with charisma yet still able to be controlled and a fresh face.
I think there's far more reason to be pessimistic.
Our society (and in general the world) has trended toward less libertarian, or even classical liberal ideas over the past century toward more authoritarian governance and group collectivism at the cost of individual autonomy and liberty. The last 20-30 years of which pretty much blew the doors off the first half.
But the sixties were a much more trying time in the USA than now. People complain about gun violence here, the reality is it's petty tame compared to the civil unrest and assassinations that were fairly common at the time. Even the national guard was involved using live rounds at Kent state.
The People now don't know history.. What's worse, the people wanting socialism and the socialist policies espoused by the Democrat party in general were not yearning for it because of food shortages, inequality, or injustice. They desire it while living in decadent quarters relative to the rest of the planet, while struggling with obesity, while having freedom to come and go and say what they please, while enjoying tinder and grindr on their iPhone.
Where i do agree with you is this, there is potential for serious unrest soon. But i don't think more freedom or more individual liberty is what's called for our what we'll get. The People in their slavish thinking now earnestly yearn for the govt to save them. Just as a reminder:
- The govts of new York and new Jersey tell their minions they can't go out after 8pm, they'll turn into pumpkins or something.
- You can't go out to eat, but you can have someone from DoorDash or grubhub go from place to place to place interacting with everyone bringing you food, same with groceries.
- You can't travel, but the airports allowing the flow of certain groups can't be interrupted.
- You can't leave or return to the country, but we're still processing asylum applications.
- You can't go to the gym in NYC, but the Mayor in can, and doesn't think it's a big deal, you guys just need to find a different way to work out.
- the feds are now actively asking companies to get your GPS data, to make sure your "social distancing"
- Duncan Lemp was literally shot in his sleep essentially by state sanctioned armed militia members who never even knocked on his door, cops now can wear masks and train as soldiers.
- as a reminder, if cops acting as army rangers didn't scare you, perhaps any of the agencies that have literally been armed recently, such as the IRS will.
There's nary a word about any of this. It's institutional brainwashing. As a reminder;
We have kids who don't know what it's like to walk into an airport without being molested by someone the govt tells them they must show deference to.
we now have govt PSA's on radio, tv and the internet that advise you to snitch on
most people under the age of 20 have no idea what its like to walk down the street, ride an elevator, drive down the road our walk on the common areas of a assortment complex or gym without being watched by surveillance cameras, where most of them don't see a problem with it.
even though school shootings are no where near levels of the past, kids are trained with active shooter drills, how to hide, how to line up, how to let the cops search them, how to walk around with their hands on top of their heads like all the others.
And, look no further than saidit, where a satire comic from the Babylon Bee is posted making fun of the idea that parents might actually have to raise their own children. The wailing and gnashing of teeth it caused about the unfairness of it and how terrible and untrue it is. So Ironic.
Sufficed to say, I'm pessimistic. Other than a convention of states, i think people are going to quickly give up their freedom. That's man's natural state, and if you look around the planet, we are one of the few where you can teach your dog heil Hitler or criticize your govt and not go to jail. But freedoms require responsibility, and none want that now.

I definitely think that's one aspect.
But i think it's more about control. People are giving up more freedoms now than they did for 9/11 as we speak. Meanwhile even in Italy, where the country is on lockdown and it's supposedly this mass casualty event, the amount of individuals who've died is tiny.
Even Trump is on on this. But don't worry, the Chancellor will return power once this event is over...

I've read that multiple companies , like Toyota and VW their factories are opening back up in Wuhan, China.
So you can't go to church, a concert, or a baseball game, but feel free to go to the airport, bus station or Amtrak. You can also go to the mall, local restaurants, bars or nightclubs.
I believe more and more this is becoming a staged power grab. And if Trump isn't stepping on the rake, then he's certainly involved in implementing the "unleashing the full power of the govt" because he's seemingly all in.
Coronavirus is worse than the flu, but even at a 2-4 % mortality rate, the panic over this is absolutely insane.
I suppose it's fitting that stupid Americans are hoarding toilet paper instead of medicine, dried and shelf stable canned goods, bleach and water. Unbeknownst to them, they're literally and metaphorically full of shit.

That's because in general, the Democratic base doesn't hate them. In fact, it's the embodiment of those principles.
The problem lies with labeling. DT's platform and what he has done (not his Twitter feed) is remarkably similar to JFK or Bill Clinton. Yet Democratic voters would light themselves on fire if they had choose between that and saying out loud that X id's a good policy.
The people who like the policies of Clinton or Kennedy have for the most part already fled the donkey for the elephant. it's one the reasons (not the main one though) Republicans no longer talk about reducing bureaucracy or reducing federal spending.
The people still voting for democrats based on the older DNC party are the folks still visiting reddit because they don't know what all the censorship hype is about or they're too old to know what reddit is. They don't care about the truth, in fact it impedes their ability to watch fun cat videos.

Apparently the republican blue checks on social media are all about the constitution and how this won't stand. They fail to realize the constitution is just a piece of paper. When people no longer view it or the declaration of independence as relevant let alone understand the reasoning behind them, you'll get better use out of it by selling it for toliet paper than a governing document.

We need to close all public schools by x0x7 in Coronavirus
That's terrible. Many of these college students will now go back to their parents homes, potentially carrying the virus to parents/grandparents smaller communities that may not have had exposure.
None of this is thought out at all. It's sheer panic from everyone with any type of authority. The President really needs to address the panic part of this.
Unfortunately, because of the media bias, i don't think it would do any good. About the only way he could get the media to look even remotely objectively is if he endorses the corona virus.

Bailing out banks again.. These execs that run their companies in the ground should be in jail, the politicians that overlook and condone their malfeasance should be stripped in the streets of DC, then tarred and feathered, the administrative agencies and the"experts" they employ should be fired and abolished.
JFK services roughly 2 million passengers a month. 2019 saw over 20 million passengers. Does that effectively shut down the airports as well?
Check the fired for cause vs termination at will.
There's some gray area for sure for your case, it's also state based.
I think it's a matter of what YouTube told you when they let you go. Unemployment will help you sort it out though, and what's more you'll set world wide trend if you're successful.

The problem is most children living in urban and suburban settings have parents that both work. Taking them out of school and putting them in a private daycare is going to be costly and statistically so far children haven't been as affected as geriatric or immuno-compromised individuals.
But, i think airports as well as bus and train terminals are probably the biggest spreader of the virus now. One sick person in the terminal has the potential to delivery the payload all across the U.S..

It's like Obama shutting down national parks for political reasons to make certain groups of ppl angry.
This time, they shut down sporting events and certain social events, yet every airport, bus, and train station is still operational (where ppl can just walk around infecting other travelers). Malls, shopping complexes, museums, etc all still open.
But let's stop the ncaa tourney and NASCAR so that all the ppl likely to vote Trump have to be made to feel as if Armageddon is nigh and Trump is the cause.
I can't stand the guy, but it's all a bit hokey and ridiculous at this point. And i actually think there are some serious issues facing the public regarding the virus, but it isn't Ebola. But the longer countries stay closed up, the closer we get to actual shortages that could have some serious consequences. You know like China not being able to produce enough medication for us.

I'm not insulting content creators by the way. There are some brilliant minds on there. Many of them are literally subject matter experts about a topic(s) or have amazing charisma.
But most of the time, They're doing something not for commercial reasons. Sometimes it's to hone their skills about a topic, or they like to teach, or They're using it as a platform to display their talent or they're using it as volunteer hours, or just to show off.
I too think YouTube is garbage for these policies. I think it's a bit like phase 4 of the MCU, where they essentially say yeh we made so much money we could care less about you any longer.. In fact, from now on, every feature film has to have a SJW theme, and by the way, some of your comic book heroes are undergoing gender transition, and you're a bigot if you say you don't like it.
I really do think it's a case that YouTube thinks it's so dominant and ubiquitous that it can dictate such terms to it's users.
Really? Because saidit exists in the shadow of reddit, which was originally FOSS. It's no behemoth, but it started small and it's growing.
Unless you signed a contract and you're getting a W2 from YouTube and not some ad agency, that's not a job, it's a hobby that until recently allowed for a symbiotic relationship. Greed is as greed does though.
No one said it would be easy. However, Unless someone is directly paying you for your work, not some ad agency money funneling scheme, what you are is an enthusiast who's managed to get while the getting was good.
The web was designed originally for sharing & not necessarily commercial monetization, that's one of the main reasons it's inherently insecure by design. It's also one of the main reasons that everyone wants to curtail it, through net neutrality, through govt picking which tech giants win or lose, through free speech regulation and on and on..
You can literally create you're own vlogs on your device and host them on a computer stuffed in your closet. That's freedom to say whatever you want. Criticizing your govt or showing hours of cat videos. You Might not make a living doing it though, but that's life.
If you make good content the eyeballs will come eventually and somebody will pay you to say an ad for them In your video. If your shit is hosted at YouTube and not in your closet, you must play by their rules. Or you must get enough of your friends and followers to leave & make it worth their time to change their policies.
But they're gambling that you won't. For now they're right. But Myspace was king until it wasn't. When enough ppl get fed up with it, a new one will come (Unless these tech giants manage to get our politicians to stifle any competition which i think they've got a pretty good shot at doing.)
YouTube does post it's jobs; developers, marketers, managers, admins, customer service, custodians, and groundskeepers to name a few. If you're a "content creator", you aren't an employee, you're a user who's an enthusiast about something.

If you're still using YouTube, you clearly don't hate it that much. You just wanna bitch and moan or self loathe and self pity about it.
On top of that, YouTube isn't actively deleting videos. It's demonetizing them and removing then from top results in search.
No you don't have the right to make a living off YouTube ads.
Use an alternate platform, or grab some open source software and create your own.

Please tell me the policy in which Biden is so completely different than Bernie.
In fact, I'd say Dementia Joe is the perfect candidate for a little camels most under the tent if you get my meaning.
Simone Sanders was formerly Bernie Sanders strategist, now she's essentially one of the puppet masters of dementia Joe. She pretty much guided him to the car and answered questions for him the other day, the same way any you have to do with the elderly in nursing homes.
If you think Dementia Joe has anything to do with the Biden campaign, there's ocean front property in Oklahoma that I'd like to sell you.
This is another reason every candidate has recently endorsed him, it's feeding time.
Joe Biden hasn't been close to moderate in 15 years, the past 8 years he's essentially Bernie without the blatant, " I'm a democratic socialist" spiel.
And now that I'm not sure he even knows where he's at half the time, his talking points & diatribes center on what they give him to say. it's the reason he looks like they let him out of a nursing home when nobody can stop him from impromptu speaking public questions.
No, I'd say with Joe, your just getting a Bernie that a lot of people will vote for.

The Indian scientist that discovered similarities with hiv virus initially posted a quick paper citing his discoveries and essentially starting the discussion process.
Because of the title of his paper, a lot of SJW in the community stated this was misleading.
He retracted the paper on grounds that out might be easily misconstrued. If you read, he's under a lot of pressure to "come to the correct conclusions". In similar ways, a scientist or research fellow at places sick as universities cannot do studies which have a certain narrative, lest they lose funding, grants, and peer respect. Topics such as climate and transgenderism are forbidden unless a very Pro stance is taken.

Afghanistan isn't Korea, on any level.
The Soviets at their peak had over 70000 troops in Afghanistan. The U.S. was lucky to have 16000.
I'm not sure why you believe an army of 16000 troops could reign in Afghanistan yet an army of 70000 couldn't.
And no we did do the job. Our job initially was to root out Al Quaeda that had been training in eastern Afghanistan and in waziristan. We did that quickly. And instead of calling it a day, we turned the Taliban, the Mujahadeen, the Pashtuns, the kuchi, and every other small tribe there against us because politicians decided that we should export some democracy there instead of just eliminate the bad guys.
You fail to accept that life isn't fair there, or a lot of places around the world. These are cultural issues, not military ones. We cannot solve these problems with the fist, although you guys feeling the bern must surely try.
Well you can solve them with the fist actually, but are you really willing to do that? You'd literally need to wipe them all out thanos style, and then import new ppl there and refer to them as Afghanis. That's a bridge to far for me I'm afraid.
And if the people want self rule, they Will take it. No one there needs a hand holding, especially for the countrymen who has essentially defeated both the Soviets and NATO allies.
