Welcome!

I encourage people not to post links like that, and to put as much content in the title as possible, but in the end it's pretty subjective what constitutes a "click-bait" link and I'm not sure it's worth the time and resources necessary to police that. We mostly let the votes decide, and saidit's community values information over click-bait :)

Dr Phil Exposes Pedogate On Mainstream Media by TheWebOfSlime in TheWebOfSlime

Who is this woman? This is amazing they're even touching this subject. The cynical side of me thinks this is a limited hangout. Pretty shocking video if this is all true...

I kind of agree with this comment too:

this is a psyop meant to demoralize the masses and bring civil unrest to usher in martial law. of course this stuff happens but the question is why are they televising this on mainstream media when we all know who owns the media. they don't just want you to know its happening but to think about it as well

Or this could be a real leak. I did read comments saying that after this episode they stopped airing Dr. Phil in the Netherlands

After years of speculation, IDF chief admits Israel supplied Syrian rebels with weapons by salvia_d in WorldPolitics

The US and Israel have been funding and arming ISIS and Al Qaeda for years. But most Americans have no idea and might even find the idea to be preposterous because of the constant media hatred of these groups, so they can't fathom they would be aiding the enemy. They of course do this because they want to overthrow Assad more than they want ISIS to be defeated, and ISIS is a tool to overthrow Assad to conquer Syria.

In the US when you are automatically registered for the military draft, they send you a post card informing you about it, and a Gillette razor.

Gillette has been embedded in agenda-driven top-level policy for some time now.

Petition to declare George Soros a terrorist reaches threshold for White House response by SundogsPlace in SundogsPlace

Well it's because he can nation-hop whenever he gets in trouble, and also because he's almost certainly paid a lot of people off who might otherwise go after him.

The community will reject them, they'll be redirected to voat where they'll be more comfortable, and if necessary more drastic measures can be taken to protect the site.

This one is not bad! No drastic changes to the font, and adding the speech bubble around it, not a bad idea at all. /u/d3rr what do you think of this logo? I think we'd have to see a digital version before I can really make any critiques though. I would probably change the "D" to be more like the current "D" though. The way it is now it looks a bit like "sadit" from a distance. We don't want to be sad lol

The other one is fun, but it doesn't match the feel of the site imo. This site deals in serious content so it should have a somewhat serious look.

Nice cat :)

The biggest problem with changing that truth is that millions of people's livelihood depends on the very machine that is crushing them.

That's a good point, and if you think about it there's almost no other way it could grow to such a size than by using this strategy.

The War on Populism by SundogsPlace in SundogsPlace

[–]magnora7 3 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 0 funny4 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

People are only afraid of populism because it is seen as leading to fake leaders. As if the only politicians who would make promises to actually help the public, would also be the most corrupt.

Although I can't really blame people, after seeing what happened to communism, which is supposed to also be "for the people" but almost always ends up in an authoritarian regime with way too much power because everyone trusts them too much, and they abuse it. I see communism and populism both sharing this fatal flaw...

But honestly to be against populism is to be against democracy. Populism just means "what is popular" and that is the whole point of democracy.

Can you Make Money on Ebay? by bogdanmilanov in business

[–]magnora7 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

15 years ago it was easy. Now... it's tough. Plus with the ebay/paypal merger, they'll mess with the money transfer. I used to sell items on ebay and one time I sold a $400 thing and the guy said he never recieved it even though I shipped it... paypal immediately sided with the buyer and I wasn't even allowed to explain myself or try to fix anything. They just shut down my paypal account, locked it, and in turn locked my ebay account that I had spent 2 years developing good seller ratings for. For someone stealing $400 from me.

That was the last time I used ebay or paypal. Fuck them to hell. Even if you can make money, they can (and will) pull the rug out from under you for literally nothing, with no recourse on your part.

I think science education was supposed to do that. The scientific method and all.

Also the buddha said "Do not trust anything, even if I say it. Verify it and test it for yourself."

So that idea is definitely out there, but I agree it could use some bolstering in the popular culture.

Congress Needs to Cancel Trump’s Blank Check for War by dcjogger in politics

[–]magnora7 4 insightful - 1 funny4 insightful - 0 funny5 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

The president has no authority to strike Syria without congressional authorization.

That ship sailed like 30 years ago. I agree, but at this particular horse has been beaten to smithereens.

But this blank check for endless war undercuts the Constitution, and that is just one of the reasons Congress needs to step up now to challenge Trump’s scheming to launch unauthorized military strikes against Syria.

Just like the democratic congress did against Bush, and the republican congress did against Clinton... It never ends. No progress is being made. Party politics is not a useful way to drive forward anti-war policy, since war seems to be one of the ideas congress can come to a consensus on, which of course relates to how these politicians get their funding.

I agree with the article, aside from the obvious pro-democrat bias. But it smacks of naivete. It seems to be written by a person who thinks that if we just play the party politics game harder we will move in an anti-war direction.

But in reality, the democrats are more pro-war than the republicans these days! https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-01-12/us-military-occupations-now-supported-far-more-democrats-republicans

The author seems to be still caught in the team vs team football game, rooting for one side, not realizing the military-industrial complex is funding both sides and voting for one of the main two parties will not end this.

I imagine I would be frustrated if it weren't so typical of modern news media.

Yes it is similar to cars now that have all these complex engine covers to deter people from working on their own vehicles. I think things should be designed to be easily serviceable, but apparently this isn't as profitable.

Black-boxing things in a way that they're inaccessible for service creates "secret knowledge" that can be leveraged for profit by the repair industries, or by the company selling you a new model because it costs more to repair the old one than buy a new one. Companies know this and use it to the max.

In a true fair market, these bad business practices would eventually put them out of business. But in this modern world of shifting technology, monopolies, and how easy it is for a company to pull a scam and merely re-brand with a new name... this type of obfuscation is apparently highly profitable since it seems almost every big company is doing it.

I'm going to be very honest with you here, I don't think we want to go in a pixel-art direction with saidit. People have already complained that it looks outdated and unpolished, and the pixel-art look (especially if not done absolutely perfectly) would just play in to that. We're really looking for stuff more modern and visually friendly to the widest range of users, like I said. I appreciate the effort, but this isn't the right direction sorry.
