I AM NOT N E T.

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.

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

So that damned underwater spring found it's way to the surface again, right in the middle of an intersection.  It's also come up at an angle, so the water is welling up through the blacktop and running uphill for a short distance, and then down the storm drain.

*watching water run uphill*

Nick:  "What the hell?"

Billy:  "Get used to it.  You work for Dok now, and that's how things are.  Remind me to tell you about the haunted water tank."

Me: "Remind me to tell you both about the robot fucker."

Nick:  "..."

Billy:  "You're not even kidding, are you?"

Me:  "This is all normal, kids."

 :lulz:

The robot fucker was at the observatory, right?
