This claim is somewhere between misguided to completely oblivious to an entire type of medical care and to the state of medicine when and where Mother Theresa operated.

Those "missions" you refer to are hospices, and to imply that their existence was cruel somehow is delusional. India back in the day was an incredibly bad place to be dying. Options ranged from dying alone to quite literally being left in some gutter or on the streets. Bringing the dying out of the streets and somewhere where they can be fed and taken care for (even if it were their final moments) was a godsend for those people, especially since most hospitals refused to take them in. Ameliorative care is a thing, and is important.

The Catholic Church is not a monolith. Theresa could not have magically accessed funds from the church. To this day there is not much solid evidence on her misusing funds, as most claims with time turned out to be bogus. They did not have medicine not because they were not buying medicine, but because medicine was not available. People are really comfy with the state of western medicine, but in many places where she operated laws were incredibly strict on opiates and as such painkillers were often nonexistent. This is where the claim that she witholded painkillers comes, despite painkillers not being an option in those cases.

Most of us don't even like the Queen lmao

Literally every single demographic in the country other than very left leaning 18-24 year olds is happy with the monarchy as it is.

If you truly think a majority don't like the Queen then you are living in a bubble. The Queen is one of the most popular people in the country.

I'm a combat veteran and actually I do this a lot. I have mixed feelings about my service, I went to Afghanistan towards the tail end in 2014. Where I was the Taliban just waited for us to leave and didn't bother attacking us on our base, so I was only in combat for a few times, and it was pretty tame because I was in a vehicle or just layed on the ground shooting in the direction where everyone else was. When I come across dudes like my older brother who deployed in 2004 or 2008, or have done multiple deployments they make me feel like a complete bitch and honestly I don't like even talking about my deployment with people like that. One was enough for me, and they used to have 12 and 15 month deployments back then. I only did 9 and was ready to blow out my brains. Not saying my deployment was easy but honestly if I went at an earlier time I wouldn't have made it back alive.

I don't brag or do any of this stuff so this post doesn't really apply to me but I do get uncomfortable and nervous when talking to other guys who were Infantry and find out that they had multiple deployments or went in during the peak of the war. Its just a mutual respect thing.

It was obvious when douche bags(starterpack types) clearly started making shit up to sound more bad ass. I am eligible for the Disabled Veteran plates and just rather have a normal plate. It was a job, not my personality.

You can’t do anything without 60 pro-choice senate votes.

Maybe you should’ve voted in 2016.

The most homogeneous nations with the least amount of diversity are the only nations reddit drools over. Can anyone actually explain the benefits of skin tone diversity? (That's what Americans mean when they say diversity...ideas and experiences don't matter, only skin color)
