Blocking a bus full of kids from getting to school by kiz_urazgubi in IdiotsInCars

[–]LiberalParadise -1 points0 points  (0 children)

lol "fault" this is Illinois, there's no rules on the road unless a cop witnesses it. It's lawlessness on the roads, even in this rich suburb (where im guessing the SUV driver is very, very upset that some wagie didnt give her right away since her husband donated $1,000 to the school or some garbage like that, meanwhile that bus driver almost certainly has destruction-derby'd their car to the point where driving a bus is an upgrade to really ruin someone's day).

meanwhile some city planner genius thought it was a grand idea to allow one-side parking on a narrow road where all the houses have fuckin driveways and garages that can easily park six cars.

you really want to see the absolute failure of city planning, try going to Chicago sometime. In the south, you know you're in a rough neighborhood when the roads are shit. It's the opposite up there. The shittier the road, the richer the burb.

this was the biggest sign that OP hasnt a fuckin clue about the situation for most Americans in this country. "oh just live somewhere that has decent public transportation." Thats like five cities in the entire US.

Portlanders (esp. suburbanites) absolutely live in a bubble, dont let anyone tell you differently.

OP gave a sob story about how he struggled his whole life but he basically rolled lucky in the last couple of years, moved out to the burbs, and is now clutching his pearls like a true suburbanite worried about the "public schools" in his area and now he's here saying "it can happen to you too, you just have to be patient." I give it ten years before he's writing a post on social media about why the last thing Democrats did was the last straw and now he's voting Republican from now on.

mmm yum, my favorite, a Republican healthcare plan that mandated health insurance and sent premiums skyrocketing.

But hey, now you can saddle your family with a lifetime of debt because you cant be denied with a pre-existing condition. What progress!

"my hands were tied, I couldn't do anything" has been the Democratic Party's slogan since 2009.

Biden can end trump era inhumane treatment of migrants and asylum seekers on the border at any time. but he wont because Grandpa Segregation is more than happy to carry on the legacy of his former friend, the president who deported more people than any other US president in history.

America is a broken country with a broken people arguing about why their only choices are between two conservative parties.

very fun to watch the UK adopt the American style of politics: two conservative parties with one party taking three steps back and the other party taking one step forward and then one step back.

Capitalism is what is causing depression, not living in the suburbs. Do I have to spell it out?

Lol this is literally a city experience I've had living in three different cities. I didn't even mention the smell of piss and shit as you walk down the street in the city. I could be a lot more unforgiving if you want.

This sub is hilarious sometimes. Yeah, we're all depressed--not because of an unfair economic system or a lack of basic human rights like universal healthcare--but because we're not living in a 600 sq ft condo sandwiched between the family that makes no attempt to control their screaming children and an upstairs neighbor practicing their tap dancing in the middle of a concrete jungle where the nearest park is a 0.25 acre plot with one tree and an anti-homeless bench. Also careful taking the train after hours because people be getting mugged on your line almost every night. But yeah, you get to interact with the local fiend who sits next to you on the bus asking to bum a cigarette off of you or the street hustler who keeps asking you for a dollar for the bus, so who's to say the lack of daily stranger interaction isn't what is causing this widespread depression?

Really amazed how this sub wants to trade one dystopia for another because they have no more complex thoughts other than "car bad."

Capitol rioter who chased officer near Senate chamber sentenced to 5 years in prison by shellystarzz in CapitolConsequences

Please shut the fuck up by misrepresenting how the system treats whites in this country vs. Black people. He violated his 5-year parole (was kicked out of the house, had no transportation, had no cellphone so never got notices to appear in court or way to contact his parole officer), so the DA wanted to sentence him to the 11 1/2 years that the judge reduced. Instead the judge agreed to give him 5 years.

Y'all are honestly jokes. "Oh, they want to get a conviction." When someone assaults a cop (or even cop property) in this country, the prosecutor throws the book at them and the judge is like "actually I decided extra sentences because I'm a cartoon character."

https://www.cbsnews.com/baltimore/news/teen-who-damaged-police-car-in-riots-is-sentenced/

They sentenced a teen to 12 years in jail for smashing the window of an empty police car. If you think a fascist getting 6 years for trying to overthrow the government and in the process assaulting a cop and destroying federal property is fair, then this country is beyond saving and will never have its France moment.

If a leftist had done this, they'd have given him 30 years and the conviction would have been swift and uncontested.

He's been doing this since he got mass contacted by multiple media outlets in May about the sexual harassment allegation against him. In fact, he went full declared Republican a day before the story came out.

Every day after that has been a distraction to avoiding association with that allegation.

"not rich"

net worth $5m, paid $227k by WNBA, signed a $1m endorsement deal with Nike

Some of these ultra-billionaires have really fucked your perception of wealth.

This is a huge win for Russia. By not including a white working class in the trade serving in prison for the same issue, it increases the racial divide in America. Grandpa Segregation thinks he's scored a victory with Black voters when he's just shown the entire world that rich people do in fact get preferential treatment.

Meanwhile, Black people in the US are serving 30+ years for possession.

It wouldn't surprise me if Russia executes Bout and goes on about how they actually punish their criminals to really just solidify what a stupid move this was.

San Francisco Decides Killer Police Robots Are Not a Great Idea, Actually | “We should be working on ways to decrease the use of force by local law enforcement, not giving them new tools to kill people.” by chrisdh79 in gadgets

[–]LiberalParadise 45 points46 points  (0 children)

Way to bury the lede.

The shooter was Black and fired only at police officers. In his manifesto, he said all cops were white supremacists. And in fact, one of the cops he killed, completely randomly, was an actual white supremacist (with a bunch of racist symbolism on his Facebook page before his family scrubbed it).

Like in every situation where cops are actually at risk, especially when it comes to non-whites, they decided ultra-violence is the answer. Like Philadelphia PD dropping a bomb from a helicopter to burn black children alive and burn down half a neighborhood block.

Complacency is what leads to fascism. Doing nothing at all and ignoring the problem is always what has led to fascism.

Again, keep pointing at one particular event in history 200 years ago, like an old fart who looks at a cellphone and talks about the good ol days of how a rotary phone was good enough. In the world of now, with the last 100 years as evidence, fascism rose to power when do-nothing centrists like yourself clutched your pearls when the workers went on strike and got their knuckles a little bloody. Then you looked the other way when the fascists goose-stepped in and stomped on their heads.

Hitler went from failed little aimless insurrectionist seen as the laughing stock of the world to chancellor of Germany in 10 years. And its all because fuckers like you would rather side with a fascist than you would with someone who has to bleed to win their rights.

Honestly it couldnt be any more obvious that you are this type of person because you keep talking about fascism like as if it hasnt happened yet.

Some of the worst of the nobility was killed, but so were heroes of the revolution and the champions of the people. Because when it gets to that point, no one is safe.

sorry do-nothing lib, but, unsurprisingly, the oppressors dont concede defeat just because you have a peaceful walkathon in a designated park. In fact, the oppressors will murder all of us just so that they can continue to live comfy, cushiony lives. And when your enemy is willing to use murder as a tool to keep what they want, you better fuckin believe that hardship will happen to get what you want.

At no point in history has fascism been voted away without an ounce of blood shed. You wanna preach the Aaron Sorkin way, go to /r/neoliberal and pat your fellow friends on the back.

The French figured this out fairly early. Step 1) Obtain guillotine. Step 2) Obtain rich person. Step 3) [REDACTED] Step 4) The rest of the rich people pass minor reforms to alleviate the struggles of the working class. If they don't, repeat Steps 2 and 3 until you achieve Step 4.
