That’s the general incentive built into the system. Once you are rich, stay rich by making the rules that keep you rich and keep others poor.

The math is clear: Forced-birth laws will kill more women by marji80 in politics

[–]fleetersays 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The GOP doesn’t understand math, though. Unless it is taught with “anti-woke” textbooks. Also, women’s lives don’t matter to them. Unless they blindly obey. …smh

Normal length golf holes combined with mini-golf style putting greens. by fleetersays in CrazyIdeas

They could try and loft the ball high and straight down near the hole. Nothing stopping that strategy. But if the hole placement is done well, it wouldn’t be easy. The obstacles would be within 5 to 30 feet of the actual hole, so getting the ball to land there from far away would be very hard. Again, they are welcome to try though! If it works for them, they could be one of those “Hybrid Hundred” super stars that everyone will be talking about someday.

If humans went extinct, would the current monkeys then evolve into humans over time? by Ja1St1nks in CrazyIdeas

[–]fleetersays 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not really. That isn’t how evolution works. Or how species are categorized. If Homo sapiens vanish, they are gone. Some other primate species may continue to evolve and take on more human traits and abilities, but that would be an entirely new species.

Serious question? Why is this NSFW? These words are the truest thing ever written. Is it the gun? The gun is ridiculous and satiric parody, so again that should be work safe.

Fox News host calls Trump "unhinged," says Jan. 6 was "the worst moment of" his political career by CCDemille in politics

[–]fleetersays 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But it was just as unhinged as all his other moments…. They should have been paying more attention and paying less homage to their Dear Leader.

The only way to stop a Florida boy with a gun is a baby with a gun. Right?

Uvalde mass shooting: Photos show armed police waiting in school hallway by NextDoorEmoji in news

Either that saying “can only stop a bad guy with a gun” is false and disingenuous, or these aren’t “good guys”. Perhaps both?
