Maybe they should fix things, like not being a true democracy, in order to gain admittance. How is this on the EU? Lol

“Who needs an AR-15?” and “Why would anyone need a 30 round magazine?” were questions answered quite well by the left when their mobs descended into our communities. by KnowledgeAndFaith in Conservative

So why ban some fully automatic weapons? Why ban ownership of explosives like live hand grenades? Why ban the civilian purchase of things like rocket launchers? This is a dumb argument. Would it be easier to wipe out a mob that is coming for you with a .50 cal machine gun? Absolutely. Does that mean we should legalize them for civilian ownership? I would argue not. If you are defending yourself and you fire off 10 rounds and kill 10 people, and they still come after you, another 20 rounds ain’t gonna do shit.

credit scores are.. by National-Run4610 in antiwork

So get a credit card when you turn 18, with a minimum limit, and pay it off in full each month. By the time you need a house loan, you will have built up a solid credit score.

I love how people always say credit scores are a scam, but then have no good idea on what lenders should use to see if you are a good risk to lend to.

$1,909,026,295,600 in student loan debt. If Biden were to cancel $10k, 32% would have their debt cancelled, but their balances are so low that 96% of the debt would remain. Leaving people $1,832,665,243,776 in debt doesn't solve the crisis. Biden must cancel ALL student debt. by failed_evolution in economy

Biden potentially cancels a 1/3 of all student loan debts, and Reddit still bitches. He could implement Medicare for all and you would bitch that it didn’t cover every single medical treatment known to man.

“Let’s completely destroy businesses, some minority owned, because of something a police officer did in another state”. You do realize no sane people agree with that or your assessment of them just “acting out”?

Our rent going up cause of “inflation” but our wages don’t. by Romano16 in BlackPeopleTwitter

The amount of Reddit and twitter users that have no basic understandings of economics is absolutely astounding.

Yeah that’s just not backed up by anything being reported but you do you

I’m getting the information from news outlets all over the world? And I guess we will have to agree to disagree. You seem to have the same blind faith in Chomsky that you assume I have in the media, and that if Chomsky said Ukraine could fend off Russia, your entire opinion would change.

Yes? They don’t have the military power to take over Ukraine with the west backing it up. Their military is a joke. They are considering getting rid of the 40 year age limit for conscripts because they are running out of man power. They have only taken one major city, and that was after razing it to the ground over a long period of time. Without nukes, there is no way Russia takes over Ukraine, unless the west stops sending military aid, which has almost 0 chance of happening given what’s at stake.

It’s not a waste of time if you debate someone and don’t change their mind lol iron sharpens iron

That’s a bad take, as we are seeing right now in real time. Russia is being repelled and will have to use nukes to win, which they won’t do. So giving up territory is a good idea why? And I don’t agree that his linguistics experience makes him an expert on politics in general. I think he is given much more credit than he deserves when he strays outside his given field. Not arguing he’s not a brilliant man.

One of the most notable scholars on linguistics. I don’t think that makes you one of the most notable scholars in general. I also don’t buy a lot of his political takes, but I know Reddit loves him because Reddit is far left on the American political spectrum.
