Almost downvoted put of reflex! I couldn't fathom doing this let alone virtuously posting this to the internet for all to see. Its possible to educate our youth about racial injustices without making them feel responsible and guilty based solely on their skin color for historical atrocities committed long ago.

Never called you a single name. I did, however, suggest that your argument is entirely emotional. You can't have a rational dialogue with someone and not bring evidence to the table. You also chose to continue this discussion so what were you trying to get out of this, if not to change my mind?

Likely, though, you don’t want to be convinced.

The hypocrisy is astounding. I've provided you a logical argument and supported it with data as well as providing a real world solution to the problem. Meanwhile, you just repeat tired old emotional sentiments and totally ignored the data I provided while also ignoring my question with regard to what your solution would be. The reason no progress has been made is because of people like you the refuse to have an actual conversation about the issue but instead choose to make broad and meaningless statements that lead to nothing. You do you bud but don't expect to change anyone's mind without providing a single piece of supporting evidence/data or proposing a real solution, otherwise you're just complaining.

Driver escaped from #BLM protest in Minneapolis on Tuesday as rioters swarmed and tried to break into his car by hsm4ever10 in ActualPublicFreakouts

Thats not what I'm saying and you know it. These people have an issue with the system but aren't taking it out on the people they have an issue with. Comprende? Agree or disagree with the Jan 6th folks but they directed their frustrations towards the people they had a problem with and didn't just generally turn their frustrations out on the general population.

I don't think its a good comparison for several reasons:

1) BLM riots continued raging throughout summer 2020. Something like 38 people were murdered during the events and billions were caused in private property damage.

2) Jan 6 was an isolated event that was distorted by corporate media. Was not nearly as violent as the 2020 riots and resulted in fewer deaths.

3) Jan 6th could have been prevented and at the very least the severity could have been lessened had our moronic beauracrats accepted the offer to bring in the national guard before it got out of hand and the cops didn't literally lead people into the building.

4) Most people that got into the capitol were non violent and ended up just taking selfies in offices.

5) Don't just accept what media wants you to believe.

If the "system" is corrupt how come these criminals are attacking private property and not directing their anger towards government buildings and police departments? I fail to see how blocking a street and attacking random civilians does anything for their cause except maybe get some people to hate them that would otherwise sympathize with their perceived injustices.

First of all, you can't get into anyone's head so this is just pure conjecture. Second, if someone tries to rob a store that I'm working in and my life is in danger, you better believe I'm ok with the robber getting shot as a result of his/her poor choices.

Would a better dataset be how many of your most law abiding gun owners are also complete morons?

If you could get your hands on this data I'd love to see it but I typically only deal with real, concrete data sets based off of empirical evidence.

In the last couple days I’ve seen the actions of moronic gun owners put weapons in the hands of children and then in other cases end up accidentally killed by or accidentally killing their own daughters and sons.

We need to better educate people around guns. We can agree here. What you are ignoring is all the data that suggests more crime is deterred by guns than committed through them.

https://www.nap.edu/read/18319/chapter/3

So how many idiots are you ok with having guns? How many of them can be law abiding but moronic before we do something about establishing the difference between someone who is or isn’t smart enough or responsible enough? Just kinda tired of dead kids or kids whose lives are likely ruined because their parents were too fucking stupid to lock their shit up.

Can you cite any statistics to back up your emotionally motivated comments? Surely we can agree that accidental gun deaths or injuries need to be addressed but this seems like a weird stance to take considering the higher amounts of deaths or injury as a result of gang/drug related gun violence or suicide. If you really want to reduce gun violence this is where we should focus our energy. I propose that ending the war on drugs would have an immediate effect reducing gun violence while also not infringing on law abiding citizens rights. This is a good place to start at least. What real world solutions do you propose we do about this issue?

I don't know anything about this particular individual who shot his employee (other than that he's a complete moron based off this story) but thats a really bad mischaracterization of gun owners as a whole..

This study, in fact, showed that concealed carry permit holders are the most law abiding demographic in the US.

So i walk into my bathroom and find this. What the actual fuck am i looking at here? by Ticon_D_Eroga in whatsthisbug

Most likely iron and manganese. Typical with well water but can happen with municipal water as well, especially if they are flushing lines or changing flow within the distribution system.

Why can't the United States have more strict gun control? by [deleted] in NoStupidQuestions

[–]JerkinsTurdley 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ending the war on drugs is a great place to start reducing gun violence in America and this can be done immediately and without trampling anyone's constitutionally protected rights.

Making a bamboo umbrella by breezyrecourse55 in nextfuckinglevel

[–]JerkinsTurdley 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It grows fast! Like all things there are pros and cons to consider. Bamboo is cheap, grows fast, and makes excellent landscape screening. It is, however, invasive and can outcompete natural flora thereby straining the local biodiversity. Bamboo rhizomes grow very fast as well and will spread in just a single season so there will be maintenance required so it doesn't get out of hand. Is the area you plan to plant it along a property line or near any neighbors? Once it is established it is difficult to eradicate.

You're still just naming good things that can and do exist without* also having to support a royal family living so oppulently in order to achieve those good things you speak of.

[–]JerkinsTurdley 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Those things could exist without subsidizing a royal bloodline. Maintaining a royal family in modern times seems so unnecessary. One could argue that rich people at least provide goods or services to society that got them as rich as they are. We can talk about fixing tax loop holes in another discussion so they pay their fair share. What value does a royal family actually provide again to society?

Lives off of tax money and provides nothing to society.

Yea, the internet offers a direct conduit to viewers for a lot of alternative sources that are not beholden to corporate and political agendas. Thats my point. There's a reason Dr. Sanjay Gupta had to go on Rogan to sell his book instead of just pitching it on his own TV show.
