It's all just performative bullshit. It's an easy shot for the Dems to make themselves look good to their liberal base because they all hate Trump that much and fall for this performative nonsense all while doubling as something for which they can say "we did something!" when they, in rea...

I mean Congress is capable of doing a lot of things at once, it's not like every Democrat was completely stopped in their tracks to work on this bill. I'd feel a little better about this sentiment if I actually saw things getting done. Afaik the big bad budget bill that's in reconciliation is in th...

Gun control is far from a priority right now. Plus I don't see any of it passing with a 50-50 Senate and an 8-strong House majority when you have people like Manchin and Sinema. Biden has spoken a lot about the topic and just a couple days ago put out a call for Congress to take action on the topic...

Who do you think uses public transportation? Maintaining and expanding public transport is critical for low income households to be able to get to work. And guess what, they don't necessarily have the income for tax hikes, the rich do. Okay. Nobody at any point in this conversation has advocated fo...

Silly point, municipal and personal finance are two nearly completely unrelated things, this is an argument for austerity and you absolutely should not support austerity. No. But I do support funding for the poor first and foremost. If you try doing it backwards your problems will multiply. You tak...

I have increasingly been pushed more to believing Marx honestly had a point about the sustainability of Capitalism by shit like this. I cannot wait for all the bullshit “but it’s so cold” deflections. Which is why it's better to call it climate change rather than global warming. Global warming is b...

Uh, AI is already widespread and even that will bring significant disruptions to the job market –and thus society as a whole– in the next 10 years. What we don't currently have is AGI. But yeah, there is simply no incentive to not develop more advanced AIs. A company that don't put R/D to AI will b...

Fuck him. Had Batista not been overthrown, Cuba likely would've transitioned to democracy in the '90s just like Argentina and Chile did.

And you're not going to accomplish anything by trying to argue with a Trump supporter, depending on how deep they're in. This has been proven since we've had five years of takedowns, explanations, and arguments of all sorts and his support base hasn't budged very much at all. You'd be surprised wha...

You can't reconcile devoted Trump supporters with reality, you can argue until your face is blue. It's a fundamentally unfalsifiable and self-radicalizing position. You're definitely not going to accomplish anything with that attitude. That's an attitude that's dedicated to making the problem worse...
