Greetin's Wolfpuck Puckwolf

Also more generally speaking, I'm just fucking tired of having to wrestle with the Midwest and the Bible Belt for the privilege of living in the 21st century. Every small step forward we try to take is done with the ball and chain of the South's ignorant bullshit. They wanna live in some imagined mythical Good old Days, I say let them. I wanna live in the future, I want my goddamn jetpack.

This country has been in an abusive relationship with itself for too long and it's about time we got out. There is nothing holding us together as a people anymore and I'm tired of pretending there is.

Well, to be fair, that's also the case in a lot of blue states as well, especially when you get out of the main high density population areas. Or even within them. I always thought Boston was in a good spot until I started paying attention. Then I was like, "oh, we're racist, backward pricks too, we just don't make it obvious by shouting the n word"


But I do call myself progressive (or at least way left of the DNC).

So: the DNC platform has adopted and moved towards a few of the progressive/Sanders ideas, namely: single payer healthcare; universal basic income; increased minimum wage; criminal justice reform; climate change.

I don't think this would have happened without a lot of people loudly asking for it from their local/primary elections. But I could be wrong.

In the "small steps" strategy, this is what would be expected from a grassroots push against the Democratic moderate status quo that currently exists in Congress.

It should be noted, however, that when the Big Bet is on the table, not voting for the "not perfect, but more probable" is akin to voting for the "a shit demon" option.

"The lesser evil is still an evil.
But it's a LESSER evil."

USA (& probably has Stockholm Syndrome at this point.)

It should be reasonable to look at a bad option A and worst case scenario B and say "I'll take A, please, unless you have a viable C that's better than both"

These things are so awesome! I always wanted to build one.

In 5th grade, we had this invention contest. My concept was a rube-goldberg style alarm clock. My idea was that some series of things would happen and then it would drop a wet sponge on your face. I didn't think this would wake you up, necessarily, so much as motivate you to get out of bed before the sponge drops. Anyway, somebody talked me out of it and instead I invented an automatic spaghetti twirler. Which didn't work out well either, it had way too much horse power and the whole experience turned into a Tim Allen style failure

Now I just remembered that Twitter thread you posted and I started laughing again

Well, I'm intrigued

I mean, you're the last person to be asking someone if they're tripping

The only way to ensure all races to be preserved is for everyone to be a little bit of everything

And the only way to permanently eliminate racial strife is to eliminate the false idol of racial purity once and for all.

I will, however, admit that it was a bit hypocritical for me to be talking about this while still criticizing other people's pipe dreams.

Why should races be "preserved"? People reproduce with people they want to reproduce with. People who don't want to reproduce, don't.

You can eliminate the false idol of racial purity by teaching people not to be dumbasses and helping them escape their dumbassery.

You're advocating for eugenics and using a stupid justification for it. Just stop killing people and let them have sex with people who reciprocate that particular desire.

I didn't say anything about killing people. Are you tripping?

How else is a race in danger if going extinct, if not through genocide? You seem to think it's inevitable
