Apple Talk / Re: Introductions, Part VI: Welcome to Our PD Party
« Last post by bpseudopod on Yesterday at 08:48:42 pm »
1.  Who the hell are you, and how did you find this place?  You're a cop, right?  Yeah you are.  Or you're wearing a wire.  I can smell that shit, and you are most definitely some kind of spy for government agencies that never heard of us and wouldn't care if they did.  Fess up.
Chill, chill! Chill. Brad sent me. You know Brad, right? Brad's cool. He wouldn't have sent me if I wasn't cool, right?
Like most of the others, I read the PD, thought it was dank, then fucked off for like half a year being an edgelord. Then, I came back, read the BIP, and thought, "Huh." Then I fucked off for a couple more months and realized this place had a forum, and that evidently it was the only one that wasn't dead as a fish on a beach or on Facebook.

2.  Why on Earth would you join a religion that worships a Greek God...And not just ANY Greek God, but the one all the OTHER Greek Gods thought was a troublemaker?  You're just asking for it, you know.
I want it, baby. Give it to me like I'm a FinDom hooker and you're a rich businessman who uses his low self-esteem to get off.

3.  Do you know any good recipes?  Because we have a section for that, and I'm trying to learn to cook.
I already posted the only one I have, and it's by no means a good one. Good luck.

Hi everyone!

I think that the fundamental problem of our new era is discovering how, in a world of mass communication, to get someone, or many ones, to shut the fuck up.

Back in the day, you could, in fact, fight ideas with bullets. In fact, this was very easy, because ideas would inevitably sprout in one area, then take a good decade or so to spread as people slowly walked from place to place and spread it. You could, conceivably, strangle an idea in its cradle with sheer manpower. But suddenly, once trains happened and people could discreetly be halfway across the country in a week, this became very hard, because someone could stir up trouble in one place, disappear, then suddenly pop up somewhere else to cause even more trouble. And then you have a movement, and that movement can move fast. As of the last decade, you don't even have to get out of your thinkin' chair. Post your hot opinion on Tumblr and half the world will see it in short order.

It was around this time that liberalism and the virtues of debate started to get popular, in part because anti-liberals suddenly found themselves unable to make the liberals shut the fuck up. The liberals, with dubious logic and usually citing no sources whatsoever, claimed that, to make someone shut the fuck up, you have to convince them that they're wrong. This, clearly, was a ruse, because people have been arguing about everything for the entire history of mankind, and that's basically never worked. But, with circular logic, they convinced everyone that they must have a point, because nobody can get them to shut the fuck up.

It took the last century for people to get that you can't beat an idea out of existence, and, look at the n00b playing prophet here, it will take this century for people to get that you can't argue it out of existence, either.

So, if you can't use brute force, and you can't debate about it, us folk of today are faced with a question:
How do you get someone to shut the fuck up?

I should clarify, the scabs who might get charged were 8 people who've been here for the last month going door to door. None of the people flying home to vote are.

Yes, 50k people left since 2007 because of the economic crises a lot are flying back, and there are loads of duel nationality who live abroad who are eligible to vote if they lived here in the last few years.

That has actually been really funny, we have staunch anti abortion die hards in this country, and even they were out for blood when they found out foreign money was behind posters and foreign canvassers were coming in. It triggers the "800 years" reflex nationalism that at this point has become genetic.

There's talk of charging them on filing for a holiday visa under false pretenses, they may all end up with a criminal charge.
Okay, now that's just lovely.

Part of it is that fear that's there since Russia/Cambridge Analytics/Facebook meddling with elections theres bean a reactionary fear to any money coming in from overseas to push an agenda, the anti-abortion side have been propped up by the US, but the same reaction would be there for any nation trying it. There were also semi-professional anti abortion canvassers flown in, they are the ones who might get charged, I don't agree with charging them with a crime, but I also don't agree with paid scabs being flown in.

I'm sure the pro-choice side were doing the same thing but they were either better at hiding it, or didnt get funded as much.

We're having the referendum on abortion today. We have a clause in our constitution saying Mother and child have equal rights to life. This blocked abortion completely in Ireland, and had a side effect that a woman has to literally be approaching death before doctors will intervene to end a pregnancy (they let a woman get septicemia rather then perform the abortion to save her life and she died which sort of triggered today's vote).
I've voted yes to remove this clause, because I trust women to know when they need an abortion (for whatever reason, not just health). But I suspect this is probably the last time they could call this referendum and have a high chance it wont go through.

Good luck. Somehow I have a surprising amount of Irish or Irish-adjacent content on my Twitter feed, so I woke up to a ton of posts about this.

I read that dual-citizenship and other overseas Irish are flying back for the vote.

Ok, wanted to check.  It felt familiar.

Not much in the way of sleep last night.  I feel as if I am walking around with Chris Christie strapped to my back.  :(
