That's 90% of the only good scenes from that movie.

XD

I did it for me. If anyone else laughs, I'm happy to extend it.

> 1 in 20 is 5%. That's a lot, comparatively, according to the 1.4 million estimated transgender in America the article says. 4 free articles left btw

1.4 / 325.7 ~= 0.4% of Americans. Where are you getting this 1 in 20 number from?

Aaron, email quoting doesn't work. :P Use <quote name="Aaron Bolyard" src="https://www.allegro.cc/forums/thread/615770/1039699#target">1.4 / 325.7 ~= 0.4% of Americans. Where are you getting this 1 in 20 number from? </quote>.

I can't do math. :/ 1 in 200. Still comparatively large enough for the right wingers to get worried about some trannie eye groping women in the bathroom.

Use a little variety for freaks sake ;O Those can't be the only moves in the movie.

That was the joke. :P

Have you ever seen a "10 hour repeating clip" video on YouTube?

Those can't be the only moves in the movie.

There was maybe one other real combat scene in the entire movie. But that would involve actually opening a real video editor instead of literally just pressing "skip back and skip forth" in VLC. :)

And you thought the liberals were crazy.

They're both complete assholes.

The left has been the party of riots, violent protests, and identity tribalism for decades. And because they got away with it for so long, the right-wing has created their own group of violent authoritarians who believe in identity politics. (If there can be a black lives matter, why not a white lives matter?)

It's a reactionary response to the left's decades of under-handed "we get you fired for disagreeing" tactics.

- Trump being elected was one of those reactions.
- Getting liberals fired for their own medicine of saying racist jokes on twitter is another reaction.

Liberals are being treated the same way they've treated conservatives forever.

You opened pandora's box, now you get to reap the results.

And I speak as someone who is technically, a full-on liberal. Weed++, gay marriage++, pro-(legal)immigration, etc.

You opened pandora's box, now you get to reap the results.

You make it sound like "liberals" are a hive mind singularity who all share the same thoughts and ideas and agree on everything, and all move in the same direction, and all attack the same targets. Which is absurd given that you consider yourself to be liberal and you disagree with a lot of what so called "liberals" have done. The same is true the other way around. "Conservatives" are accused of acts as if they're a hive mind and they all do the same thing and all support the same ideas. These are very broadly defined groups that encompass large swathes of people that agree on some ideas and completely disagree on others. It's barely useful to even give them labels, and certainly never useful to point fingers at the label unless your goal is to distract everyone from the debate and derail anything constructive that might have been underway.

Drop the labels. Dividing the country (or world, for that matter) into a few boxes and placing blame on the entire group for the actions of a subset of them is unfair, unproductive, and unintelligent. The media likes to use these labels because it gets people upset, and that increases the popularity of their work, which increases their cash flow. It's politics. And politics aren't useful for solving problems. Politics distract people from the problems so we forget there is even a problem to be solved.

Most of the media is completely bought and controlled these days. They are not honest journalists doing their best to give unbiased accounts of what is happening. They're puppets on strings doing their best to keep everybody distracted so that everybody will continue to be easily controlled.

I can relate to both sides of the political spectrum. When I do those biased surveys to guess where you land I'm usually pretty close to the middle, as I would bet most people are. Most people are not extremists. Most of us just want to live our best life, and insofar as it doesn't interfere with that want others to be able to do the same. It's mostly emotion that causes people to move towards one or the other extreme, and often it's after being chased there by some puppet master with a snake tongue.

If we want to improve the world we live in we need to stop playing by these house rules and instead insist on playing a fair, inclusive game. We need to honestly seek out the truths, no matter how they make us feel. And we need to always be open to being wrong. The world is not black and white. Sometimes the answers are a little bit fuzzy. And that's OK. If we're honest to ourselves, and honest with others, we can still arrive at good decisions that fairly represent us all.

The whole "veteran" praise thing has me confused. I mean, sure, world war veterans had little choice and suffered big, and it's shameful that we didn't take good care of them. After that, it gets a bit more fuzzy. The so called cold war was perhaps another excusable exercise, and I guess for Vietnam the US government was still forcing people to go, but it seems beyond that it's pretty much just people volunteering to go kill people because they have a fetish for guns. It's still shameful that they aren't well taken care of when they return suffering from what they endured, but it's also kind of shameful that they signed on to do evil in the name of their government. It's shameful that they're still patriotic to a fault instead of speaking out against the government that commanded them to go and terrorize people. And that's not universally true. Plenty of them recognize the evil that they represented and do what they can to speak out against it, but the majority are still proud to a fault.

"Veteran" loses a whole lot of meaning when your loses are some thousand maybe and their loses are some hundreds of thousands. At least, as far as I'm concerned. I don't think that war is a good solution to the world's problems, and I don't think that we should glorify the people that choose to sign on for these acts in a time of relative peace. I don't think recent wars have accomplished anything productive, and have done far more harm than good. I have no "veteran fetish". I don't think that we should praise a 35 year old in 2018 for serving overseas. Some of them are certainly messed up from it, but I'm sure they screwed up a lot of other people too while they were over there.

I don't think we should throw bottles full of piss on them, but then I don't think we should throw bottles of piss on anybody. And I don't think we should be any more upset if a bottle of piss is thrown on a veteran than if a bottle of piss is thrown on anybody else. They're not "defending" the nation anymore. They're terrorizing far away lands. It's more likely that they're attracting terrorism than accomplishing anything productive. And if my home was terrorized by a powerful foreign land I think it would motivate me to pick up a rifle or strap a bomb to my chest too.

But then again, there you go saying "they" and "them" as if there's some conspiracy or some massive group of evil people coordinating attacks against your own kind. The world is full of dicks. Many of them are American. Many of them are not. Many of them are American military (kind of attracts dicks, just saying). Many of them are civilians. Many of them are teenagers or early 20s that think they knew what the world is all about, but are in for a rude awakening.

Around 26 or 27 I started to realize that I didn't really know as much as I thought I did. I started to realize that no matter how genuine our intentions are there are a whole lot of different ways to experience this world, it's almost never black and white, and there are a whole lot of people that have every valid reason to oppose you that you do to oppose them. Live, and let live.

So sure, throwing a bottle of piss on a veteran in a wheelchair is a shitty thing to do, but based on all accounts I've read about the wars of late it seems the veterans themselves stand (or sit, as the case may be) a long, long way from innocent. It's pretty horrific to see some leaked video of American forces in Iraq. The civilian death-toll is insane. There are simply too many people on all sides trusting in a figment of their imagination and raw emotion to guide them through life. I don't think that that should be rewarded. I think that it should be condemned.

Everybody makes mistakes, and I'm far from perfect myself. I ultimately do my best to not judge others at all because people in glass houses and all of that. And pointing fingers and placing blame doesn't really solve any problems either. It just further divides us. It's best to seek to move on, find common ground, and work together towards a better future. So what if some stupid people throw bottles of piss on veterans in wheelchairs. Those individuals should be held accountable to the extent that we're able to fairly do so, but it must stop there. You cannot extend it to everybody that partially associates with them. That is playing god.

If you don't support the VA and disavow the military industrial complex then you hate veterans, too.

see how simplistic I can make things too

re: liberal media, see Manufacturing Consent by Noam Chomsky. tl;dr: media has an audience and aims to entertain the audience while profiting and benefiting the elites; Fox News targets your conservative grandpa while CNN targets your city dwelling progressives neoliberals but in the end they all benefit the same people and hurt everyone else. The difference in politics is not economic, only social.

So while we fight over who should be marginalized and who shouldn't, the wealth divide increases to a point where society cannot bear it.

Also re: civility, I find it hilarious how socially progressives and socialists and all "far left" are supposed to be so civil while the right / conservative aren't held to the same standard. Case in point: this thread. I can be misgendered and that's ok but god forbid I say "fuck you".

I respect our veterans, but I don't respect our leaders. No way am I going to volunteer to be in Bush's army, or Trump's either. If you can't trust your commander in chief to be held accountable and responsible for his actions and to avoid war except where war is the only option.

However, I have tremendous respect for our veterans. My Grandpa served in the Navy during World War II, and lost his hearing from the deck guns on a battleship. My nephew in law is in the Army. I respect their decision to commit their life to the defense of this country, and I respect the sacrifice many of them have made.

But I would never join the Armed Forces if I can't trust the President to use his power responsibly. Now if say China came and attacked us, I would fight, even though I don't believe war is justified except in self defense or defense of the weak.

A justified example : Taking out the LRA, the so called 'Lord's Resistance Army', would be justified in my opinion. Likewise as Al-Qaeda was, and so is ISIS. They only terrorize people, and subjugate women.

Anyway,

Elizabeth Warren for President 2020

I can be misgendered

I don't recall a single person actually intentionally calling you by anything except "Aaron." Only disagreeing with your worldview, and disagreeing isn't not an attack and never will be--for the same reason you can disagree with us and not worry about being called a bigot.

And I've been "misgendered." I've had old WW2 vets intentionally call me "Christine" and make a point of it. They were a-holes. But at no point do I feel like my life has been held back, or I've been denied success or happiness. A-holes exist and they don't neatly fit into categories of "bigot or not". There are tons of a-holes (probably even more) who never use "bigoted terms" but are still complete a-holes. So I don't understand why I should give special attention to an a-hole's meaningless attack, just because the attack fits into a special category. An a-hole is an a-hole and I'm better than them.

The fact you and I can discuss you being "misgendered" calmly, kind of implies it's not that big of a deal. Though, if you've been directly hurt by it, I do apologize as hurting you was never my intent. As you've seen in plenty of my posts, even though I fundamentally disagree with you politically on many points, I've never done anything but wish you the best.

I seem to remember a certain comment (not in this thread) about pulling your panties up and not being such a girl. The same sentiment still lurks. It's hard to have a serious discussion with someone when they attack you like that.
