  1. There is a lot of talk of welfare cheats and bums.  O.K., how much truth is there to this - and how much is it jerks "rubbing it in" to those who were unsuccessful in life?  Myself, I think a lot of people made bad choices and need to grow up and start with a winning plan.  However, though, while they are getting their game back in order, they need to be respected.  Anyway, though, if people are on welfare, it's really rude to comment, even with the fact that "taxpayers" front the bill for food stamps etc..  People should just mind their own business, at least in personal dealings with others.

    Come on.You're implying conservatives care about the poor?Also that's my point. Sometimes a fetus will die any way so they save the mother at least.This shit ain't easy to deal with.My mom was 84 when she died. She was around before Roe v Wade.It was as fucked as you can imagine. She was pro choice. Also abortions won't stop if they're illegal. Just a lot more women will die.Which I'm sure the christians will pray for when they're dead.I'm done here. I've said my piece.

    The fact the fetus will die anyway isn't always the case.  Maybe it's not even the most common case.  It's simply murder to terminate pregnancies.

    We can't be supportive of wrongdoings even if the nation is a big contributing factor to the world's economy. I just pray the war doesn't go out of hand. 

    Hopefully Putin will cave in.   However, there is a lot of Russian pride and saving face at stake.   It's a very likely scenario that they become like North Korea for a few years or a decade.

    However, the population has had extreme exposure to the west for 30 years.  That's gotta have a big effect.

    Grunge had no substance.

    What do you mean?  Well, the haters of hair bands are saying a similar thing.  I don't know. It seems like a lot of glam metal, hair metal, whatever you call it - was about hedonism, not about anything serious.

    I grew up on a small stock farm. We mostly focused on Holsteins and Belgians. We did buy some hogs every year to butcher. We did the same with our own beef. It was hard work, but I loved it.

    My dad had a large hobby farm. Myself, I raised chickens for 4-H.   It was a lot of fun and also sometimes helping with dad's farm.   Anyway, though, it was just for recreation.

    Sounds like you're reading a bunch of religous propaganda.I seriously doubt the situation you are proposing.Either that or some key facts are missing from your story.These situations are never as simple as anti choice people say.There have been situations where the woman will die if the fetus isn't aborted.Do some research on women's health instead of half ass scenarios.

                           To think conservatives are pro life is a joke. Otherwise they'd at least allow billions more in welfare. You know, when a 14 year old gets raped and is forced to have the baby like they'd prefer.Not many 14 year olds can make enough money to support herself and a baby.Nope they bitch about welfare cheats with just a touch or sometimes a lot of racism.And yes this should be directed or made somewhere else.

    Well, call me crazy, the people who weren't aborted are at least still alive, even if they supposedly are very poor or something.   Well, a baby is totally innocent.  However, it's debatable about people who are struggling in life, not to sound insensitive.

    We're with Mediacom. It's not a bad server. Just expensive as hell. I pay about $115 every month for it. I was forced to upgrade to unlimited bandwidth a couple years ago, because we stream shit all the time (I'm a YouTube addict) and @Rain Dew plays FF14 all the time. So between streaming, YouTube, and FF14, our previous plan just didn't give us enough bandwidth. I wish it did, because it was only $50 per month.

    Myself, I use shared hosting because my forum is in a baby stage.  I might upgrade to some reseller thing once it gets bigger, since the hosting doesn't have a VPS or dedicated server option.  Have you ever used shared?

  8. As of right now, I don't have enough faith that Russia's side of the story is true - and to most people in the world, it seems like a Nazi blitzkrieg invasion of Ukraine.  However, though, in disciplining Russia, the world runs into serious problems

    Well, for one thing Russia has nukes that can demolish the US, not like with North Korea.  Also, the nukes can be given to Islamic terrorists.   Finally, Russia can bring down the economy of the west with it and also cause, indirectly, a famine in many very poor nations dependent on wheat and fertilizer.

    However, some say we must always side with right and discipline wrong.  Nonetheless, there is reality.

  9. Well, Christianity is about faith, so it's never been about proof anyway.  However, why do people need proof of everything?  Can everything be proved?   Anyway, some scientists have talked about things that seem very Biblical.

    That's a great idea, but unfortunately no one is willing to pay for it, whether they have the money or not. Also the manpower to clean up things like this is severely lacking. Not enough people are willing to pitch in to clean up and recycle. So to get enough for the rocket to even matter would take decades. and by that time the amount of trash that we would need to launch would have tripled at least. Garbage Island is the size of two Texas's. It's enormous. Yet we're doing next to nothing to clean it up and dismantle it. Sure there are groups that clean up trash on land and at sea, but their efforts are all but futile. If I could I would be right out there beside them doing it. Unfortunately though, I can't help. Except donations, but I don't honestly know who to trust and whether or not if the money goes to cleaning up or into someone's pockets.

    Burning it is one idea.  However, environmentalists are against global warming.  However, how much pollution would it really be? Surely, people burn the same amount with cars over a year or more.

    I read that bill Senate Bill 669 in Maryland. First off, this would be better discussed in the abortion topic so it doesn't derail this education topic. But I've read the republican talking points and they are throwing accusations out there with no substance. The bill will protect the mother from failure to act in perinatal death which includes the 7 day period after birth of a fetus that survived an abortion. You guys are trying to make it sound like 'parents are killing babies!' You guys don't give a shit about pro life, not when the fascists you support are prone to racially motivated genocide and are anti civil liberties. 

    The idea of "surviving an abortion" is so disgusting it should be thrown in with Nazi medical experiments.  A baby survives an abortion - and even then, nobody tries to save it.  It's sickening.

    I live in rural Texas deep in the country and I am surrounded by hate. Sometimes people feel comfortable enough around me to talk their racist bigotry talk. They say things they wouldn't ordinarily say in public. But behind closed doors you get to see how they really feel.

    Well, I always find it funny that most right-wingers it seems, believe anyone who complains about racism is weak.   Now, I'm not saying I am left-wing, but I can understand where people are coming from that are alienated by this ethnocentric viewpoint.   Well, I remember this meme on Facebook, where it shows 9/11 and says something like "Remember" and then a black with a whipped back and says, "Get over it".  This was sarcastic, of course.

    Miyagi and johnny, Miyagi, well that’s known, but johnny shaped a bunch of losers into the most feared fighters in the valley, got rid of asthma, gave a kid confidence, redeemed the cobra Kai name, and is really passionate

    You mean, Johnny wasn't a bully?  Well, I'm not an extreme democrat, lol, but those kids pushing Danny's bike off a cliff was extreme and that was just one incident.  Well, of course, cops are never called, cause that would make the film so boring - unless the situation lead to more fights, lol.

  14. The worst I experienced was in Korea and oddly enough, the worst I experienced in America was the fact I traveled there.   All sorts of people in my area, you'd think would hate blacks, but actually they hate Asians.   That's what it seems like.  I was called an Asian lover (Well, another word was used) very rudely and quite often.  People seem to think all Koreans are North Koreans and all Asians are the slant-eyed enemy.

    Note: This racism was so bad, that it made me think twice about openly being friends with blacks, but oddly enough, nobody cared about it.

  15. I can't see any major differences in any of them, free or paid.  Well. paid software has got more stuff "out of the box".  However, with free software like MyBB and phpBB mobile ready now - without modification, why pay for software?

    They are nowhere near the middle when they vote for scumbags. Who you vote for says a lot about your morality. They are just as guilty looking the other way while their leaders are traitors, racists, fascists, conspiracy mongers, and liars. Just as guilty voting for them,  and just as guilty as committing acts of bigotry themselves by supporting those psychos. I get it that republicans don’t like democratic policy and how they whine about civil rights. But damn, republicans would rather do away with democracy, put people’s lives at risk through open hostility and racism, have a civil war, commit treason, and have complete totalitarianism rule rather than to compromise with democrats. The middle is not the far right. Do you support Mitt Romney? He is the middle conservative type. The only other middle conservatives are the two on the Jan 6 committee, Cheney and Kinzinger, who the republicans are trying to ban from their party and censor. That’s all the middle conservative has got. Other than that, Andrew Yang is forming a third party that middle conservatives really should look into. I also like Andrew Yang and I hope his third party can develop into competition with republicans and democrats. If you want middle and hate democrats, then Yang is definitely the moral high road then to get sucked into republican fascism. 

    There is recently a bill in Maryland supporting non-criminal prosecution for letting newborns die.  Now, tell me, who is on the right side of things?  Who is evil?

    I try to, but the sad fact is that all too often, what we recycle ends up in a landfill anyway. It's a good idea to at least try. But I don't have a whole lot of faith in it. Especially when you look at our oceans and the millions of tons of plastic floating in them. Garbage Island is a real problem that needs to be addressed.

    This is what's happening right now:




    That's very sad.  I don't see why we can't rocket that trash to space.  It would be worth the fuel.

    So you obviously fail to see and are probably denying the fact that Russia is the oppressor of free speech. If a country has a justification to fight another country, they won’t block social media access. Russia has just expanded their crackdown of free speech by passing a new law that will jail anybody for 15 years for saying 'war' or 'invasion' and that includes the press. All reporters now have to stop their live broadcasting out of fear of the new law. So Russia just went dark. 

    Tons of people in the USA and abroad disapproved of W. Bush's invasion of Iraq, but there was no supression of freedom of speech.   Well, this is America and other countries get away more with bossing their citizens around.

    Just ask someone you know about their thoughts on interracial marriage.

    Actually, most Americans approve of interracial marriage.  Of course, some large sub-groups hate it like African-American women who resent whites taking their men etc.  Anyway, I see mixed couples and mixed kids all the time.  Nobody is making a fuss about it and this is southern Appalachia.

    Whites hate blacks. Blacks hate whites. Whites hate Asians. Asians hate whites. Native Americans hate whites. Whites hate Native Americans.

    Well, it's kind of like with how cattle are slaughtered.  I try not to think about it.  Anyway, if you know how to deal with things correctly, you can avoid a lot of racial conflict.

    Are you fucking serious? Your kind committed terrorist attack on the capital, you're pushing white washing of education, you pass voter suppression bills, you're pushing religion into public schools, you make terroristic threats, you attack Democrats and liberals in general, you remove the LGBTQ+ community from even being fucking people, and you ban libraries from having books that you would object to.

    There are even some assholes that are trying to get history books banned because there are images of ancient Greek pottery with nude people on it, so they are calling it pornography.


    Conservatives are fucking idiots, lunatics, and fascists. They hate democracy, and support dictatorship under a racist moron. They are actively doing everything they can to destroy what is left of this country. The USA is long gone. We are the SA, or just America, as we're no longer united.

    Some conservatives are more of the "South Park" type or Schwarzenegger type, while others are maybe semi-white supremacist or religious supremacist.  I'd say most are somewhere in the middle.

    A big issue that comes to my mind and sharing is how a lot of times minorities can't get houses because they are least likely to get approved of loans from banks, real estate are less likely to sell them a house in certain districts. Because if they get housing in rural or suburban counties, it will mess up racist gerrymandering lines which are purposely drawn by republicans to leave out ethnic minority votes. If minorities move into those districts, it would give them stronger voting representation that republicans are completely against. The AFFH, Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing, was put in place from Obama as part of the 1968 Fair Housing Act to help fight against housing discrimination, and Trump immediately went and removed it when he was in office. 

    Republicans also believe in trickle down policy, where they keep protecting the wealthy in hopes that the wealthy will share, which never happens. 

    Job discrimination and the fact that there are very little non white, non female top corporate positions, and very little non white, female top government positions, all have an impact on wealth distribution which always provide bare minimum funding if any to certain communities. For example, Biden was forced to drop some things from the infrastructure bill that would help some less privileged communities because republicans simply have racist backbones and absolutely will not pass anything that helps minorities, unless of course there is a big package that further helps their greed and corporate power. 

    The wealth distribution of bailout money under trump unproportionately helped his favorable causes compared to other companies. Even farming bailouts from Covid as well as the failed China trade war were again unproportionately given to white farmers instead of black farmers. Granted, there are a lot more white farmers, but many black farmers currently never received funding. Biden passed a bailout package to help black farmers, and the white farmers sued the administration saying the bill was racist because it was going to black farmers, so the funding got squashed. The black farmers should have sued the trump administration when he left them out of bailouts. 

    But improper wealth distribution is a part of systemic oppression and government/corporate interests taking priority over the interests of the common people. 



    I doubt if much racial discrimination exists.  It's more class discrimination these days - and certain groups have a lot of poor people within them.
