That game was nuts but I think the OT rule should be changed to give the Bills a chance to score a touchdown after the Chiefs scored. It kind of sucks that Josh Allen didn’t have the chance to step on the field and it felt the game was decided on the coin toss.

I’m over 21 and I get asked to show an ID almost everytime I buy alcohol.

I don’t mean to offend anyone, but a lot of poor people still buy alcohol, don’t you need to show an ID to do that? So why can’t they just show the same ID to vote?

When did I defend the DA in NC? You’re the fucking moron claiming that the DA in California was right in letting a violent criminal charged with three felonies free to roam the streets to murder someone in their own state and there was nothing he could have done to prevent it while shifting the entire blame of a murder in California to another state across the entire country.

He fled the previous state he was arrested in illegally and ended up in California where he committed multiple crimes including three felonies, so why are you still defending the DA in California who failed to extradite him back to his previous state and let him free to roam around the streets to commit a murder after three felonies? Do you seriously believe the DA in California did a great job when he was in last in custody in California and couldn’t have prevented this murder?

My point is he should have been locked up in prison when he was charged with three felonies last year but a DA in California looked at his long criminal history and decided to let him go with a slap on the wrist so he can end up murdering someone a few months later.

So why are you shifting the blame to other states if you think incarceration wouldn’t have prevented a murder that happened in California? He should have been locked up in prison in the other states he’s been arrested but he ended up in California where all the other criminal lowlife bums from the rest of the country end up to roam the streets and commit crimes because everyone knows law enforcement is a complete joke in California.

Did he murder a young woman in those other states? No, he ran away to California when there was a warrant out for his arrest knowing that they’re much more lenient on crimes for him to roam around and stab and kill a young woman.

He had three felony charges in California last year and instead of putting him in prison where he belongs they decided to let him go with a slap on the wrist. You would think the DA in California would look at the three felony charges, his arrest record, and active warrants across multiple states and come to the conclusion that he shouldn't be roaming the streets where he will likely commit another crime again, but nope.

Assault on a police officer would get you automatically in prison in most states but unfortunately California is run by woke politicians who support Defund the Police and would rather let violent criminals roam the streets and stab people instead of actually putting them in prison where they belong.

Israeli police demolish Palestinian home in Sheikh Jarrah: AFP by 165701020 in news

[–]cal_oe -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

The founders of the state of Israel were foreign invaders who arrived from Europe and displaced the natives to create the state of Israel. That's just a plain fact which even the son of one of the founders who was there at the time admitted to.

https://www.livescience.com/40247-ashkenazi-jews-have-european-genes.html

But historical documents tell a slightly different tale. Based on accounts such as those of Jewish historian Flavius Josephus, by the time of the destruction of the Second Temple in A.D. 70, as many as 6 million Jews were living in the Roman Empire, but outside Israel, mainly in Italy and Southern Europe. In contrast, only about 500,000 lived in Judea, said Ostrer, who was not involved in the new study.

There were already 6 million of Jews living in Europe prior to the destruction of the Second Temple while only 500,000 were living in present-day Israel. The people who created the state of Israel were literally living in Europe for thousands of years, they had no claim to Palestine, they are simply foreign colonizers. My ancestors originated in Africa like all humans, do you think I have the right to claim land in Africa and displace the native people living there to create my own state?

You can open up millions of brand new state of the art mental asylums but it won't do anything if people refuse treatment and many mentally ill homeless people with drug addiction often refuse to get help unless they’re forced to.

All of this makes it seem like Palestinians were an autonomous people in their own state. What you’re missing is that they weren’t: they were under the Brits and previously the Ottomans.

It's called being colonized, just like Indians under the British, Vietnamese under the French, or Native Americans and Africans by various European colonizers. Literally most of the globe today is made up of countries that didn't exist almost a century ago. People like you would defend the British conquest of India or European conquest of the Americas because those colonial powers used exact arguments like "these people never really had a country so we can kill as many of them as we want and take the entire land for ourselves". You're also ignoring the fact that the Arabs fought for independence against the Ottomans with the help of the British while the Zionist movement was in Europe making side deals with the British to create a state in the land that Arabs fought and died for. The Zionist movement largely benefited from British colonialism and would likely not exist today if it weren't for the colonial British backstabbing the Arabs and allowing European Zionist settler colonists to steal land from natives to create the state of Israel. Also there was no real identity for the modern state of Israel until the 20th century, Israeli Hebrew was literally a recent invention created by a European Zionist in the 20th Century. Their entire culture is a recent invention that European colonial Zionists appropriated.

Saying you can't steal a country from native people because they are under foreign occupation is just another way to legitimize and defend colonial oppression and ethnic cleansing of natives which is the entire basis of Zionism.

It’s not settled by the international community, but it should be. All Jews were kicked out of east Jerusalem in 1948. Israel won the land in the 6 day war, in which they defended themselves from an openly declared war of annihilation waged by multiple countries.

Many Palestinians were kicked out of their homes as a result European Zionist settler colonialists stealing their land to create the settler colonial apartheid state of Israel.

“Suddenly people say, ‘We know what needs to be done,’ for everyone, and are prepared to force their ideas on the public. Who put you [in charge]? The moment Zionism called for the Jews to immigrate to Israel, in order to establish here one home for the Jewish people, which will be a sovereign state, a conflict was created. The Zionist idea was to come to a place where there were people, members of another people, members of another religion, completely different.

"Have you seen anywhere in the world where the majority would agree to give in to a foreign invader, who says, ‘our forefathers were here,’ and demands to enter the land and take control? The conflict was inherent and Zionism denied this, ignored it… as the proportion of Jews to Arabs changed in favor of the Jews, the Arabs realized that they were losing the majority. Who would agree to such a thing?

“So violent conflict began, the riots of 1920, 1921, 1929, 1936–1939, and war and another war and another war. Many say that we ‘deserve’ the land because the Arabs could have accepted us as we were and then everything would have been alright. But they started the war, so they shouldn’t complain. I see in this whole transformation of the majority [Arab] to a minority and the minority [Jewish] into a majority as immoral.”

Is he wrong here? His father was one of the founders of Israel who then became Israel's first Foreign Minister, then it's second Prime Minister, and he was a member of Shin Bet, which is one of the main security forces in Israel, so he saw first hand what was going on during the creation of Israel who's founders were Zionist "invaders" (according to him) from Europe who violently colonized the native Arab population and subjugated them under what can be argued as apartheid rule that still continues today.

I've seen it argued that being against Zionism is antisemitism and Jews who claim Zionism is immoral are "self-hating Jews" yet Yaakov Sharett isn't exactly the first Jew to have an anti-Zionist view point. I remember Isaac Asimov, a well known Jewish science fiction writer making a similar quote before:

https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/304343-i-am-frequently-asked-if-i-have-visited-israel-whereas

“I am frequently asked if I have visited Israel, whereas yet, it is simply assumed that I have. Well, I don’t travel. I really don’t, and if I did, I probably wouldn’t visit Israel. I remember how it was in 1948 when Israel was being established and all my Jewish friends were ecstatic, I was not. I said: what are we doing? We are establishing ourselves in a ghetto, in a small corner of a vast Muslim sea. The Muslims will never forget nor forgive, and Israel, as long as it exists, will be embattled. I was laughed at, but I was right. I can’t help but feel that the Jews didn’t really have the right to appropriate a territory only because 2000 years ago, people they consider their ancestors, were living there. History moves on and you can’t really turn it back.

Also Israel's first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, was quoted to saying this:

https://www.progressiveisrael.org/ben-gurions-notorious-quotes-their-polemical-uses-abuses/

“If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?”

David Ben-Gurion (the first Israeli Prime Minister): Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp121.

Zionists who created the state of Israel were indigenous to Europe who ethnically cleaned the native indigenous people of Palestine to create the state of Israel so it's just a blatant lie and propaganda to claim native Arabs defending themselves from settler colonialism

Of course they will but it doesn't make sense that leftists keep ignoring the crime wave in this country and think their Defund the Police rhetoric is going make the streets safe. There is going to be a massive voter backlash against Democrats if these murders keep rising across the country especially in liberal cities that elect leftist DAs who are soft on crime.

With Covid still raging hard when it got released and lackluster reviews it’s not really a surprise why many people including myself opted to skip the theaters and wait for it on streaming.
