Don't blame me, I voted for the other guy. (Politics General)

  1. What the fuck?
  2. Electronic voting only sounds cool if you don’t think about how it will actually work. Once you think about the implementation, security, tampering, anonymity and all other problems, you realize it’s a nightmare. Ditch the paper for everything, but keep it for elections and referendums.

Speaking of the Chinese. The Chinese military action in the south china sea has been going on for a while which mostly is just them trying to intimidate P-8 Poseidon ASW aircraft in international waters
on a serious note they did intercept a Australian P-8 and performed a hazardous maneuver. I’m not sure if damage was done to the aircraft but I doubt ingesting shards of aluminum is good for the engines

Oil hit a 6 month low, and if the Iran deal pans out, we could see sub 90 a barrel, and possibly even a return to the mid 70s a barrel it was before the price climb.
Lower oil prices take time to translate into lower gas prices, but those have all trended downwards too, with the national average sub 4 (even lower if you take out California, the outlier, which it then drops to somewhere around 3.60ish).
It will also take time for this to propagate throughout the market. Lots of price increases are “baked in” to older purchases, but soon you’ll start seeing declines.
It will be interesting to see if Biden does any student loan forgiveness before the end of August. The impact of such forgiveness on inflation is mixed. If the market keeps cooling, then it won’t have much of an impact either way. If the market heats up again, freeing up that much debt could have similar effects to the stimulus and pick inflation back up.
If I had to guess, I’d say the former is more likely. There are no current economic indicators that say inflation will gain speed again.

Restarting repayments for school loans would be a death sentence for Biden, especially before the midterms. Really at this point there’s no reason to not cancel them

Whatever helps your America hating chin sleep at night. Never mind that fact that the same Constitution this disfigured jaw puppet says right there in the 14th Amendment that you are in fact disqualified from office if you start up an insurrection against your country.
But then again a Republican, let alone a Fox News host not respecting the law of the land is unsurprising.

Liz Cheney has lost her primary reelection by an almost 30 point margin.
Cheney chose country over Trump and the GQP didn’t like that.

Yet she will remain on the Jan 6 commitee as a representative till it’s end.
I have no respect for Cheneys, they’ve used the right wing propaganda apparatus to cover for their atrocities and disgusting worldview for generations, but now that it’s been hijacked by fascists, it’s time to no longer give any fucks.
Burn this shit down to the ground until nothing remains.

Do the excessively rich really deserve all their money? Most of their money comes from the labor of under-payed employees and the hoarding of wealth is not just a danger to America, but China and the whole world as well. Companies keep bragging about record profits while refusing to give their workers livable conditions. There is nothing left to eat, it’s time to eat the rich. I’m not an economist, I don’t know if we should raise minimum wage or tax the rich more directly, I just know that the rest of the world is on fire right now with what’s currently going on.
“For reference: For a 5-day work week, that’s 21 work hours per day.”
This is dystopian, I refuse to work that long, even if I starve under a bridge. I’m getting a sleeping bag shaped tent for 20 dollars. My mom is moving into a trailer without me, and thinks I’m just going to magically start making 1200$ a month (I make like 300$). Not her problem i guess, I’m almost 30. I could always go to Peacecorp (they take people at the end and middle of the year) and actually have something for my resume besides drawing porn i guess.

Seriously, fuck California! Fuck you and everyone who lives there! Fuck your almonds! Fuck Hollywood! Fuck Disneyland! Fuck Gavin Newsom! Fuck your high taxes and high cost of living! Fuck your far-left politics (including your hate-boner for guns!) I could go on…!
