I feel it changing my dna and making me more susceptible to the evil 5G rays, mutating me into a half tree half mollusk type creature. I have already begun to lose my free will and will soon join the Great Horde.


Misinformation about vaccines.

There is a lot of it. Here is a doctor to clear some things up. I hope that if someone who is on the fence of taking a vaccine sees this, they change their minds.


Too much snow.

Anyone have any good experiences? I have recently become interested in investing my money in stocks so I am considering the Fidelity credit card.


Yesterday was a hard day for all Americans.

We will get through it though. There is a first time for everything. Remember worst things have actually happened to this country and in recent history too. I'm sure we can all think of examples.

Why do young people like socialism so much?

Questions are good but if this is more than a rant, the right question must be asked.

I'm in my early thirties, so i count as young? What about elementary school kids?

And what do you mean by socialism? The usa has tons of socialist policies that no one (or at least not most) seem to have a problem with. Public schools, public libraries, social security, unemployment benefits, the government of most states requiring you to have auto insurance if you want to drive, and others i can't think of right now.

Probably you have none of these things in mind when you say socialism, but are simply aping rhetoric that a pundit is spouting who could care less if your child has a basic education.

The only way a debate like this becomes grounded in reality is by talking about specific problems with specific policies. Otherwise both sides are swiming in a sea of idealisti nonesense.

So I'm scared I hurt a snake...

Let me say I am pleased to see a bipedal show such concern for his reptilian fellows. while I am not an expert on snakes, I believe that, if it was hurt, you would probably be able to tell. Bones crack when broken, and you should realize that creatures are usually built pretty tough - snakes spend their whole lives on the ground, after all.

He wouldn't have been much safer living in your store, so I believe you did the right thing. On the other hand, I would offer...what if the snake was venomous? I do not know where you live and if there are such snakes in the area, but your job probably doesn't pay you enough to get treated for snake venom. Animal control may have been a better option.

Solipsism (/ˈsɒlɪpsɪzəm/ from Latin solus, meaning 'alone', and ipse, meaning 'self') is the philosophical idea that only one's own mind is sure to exist.

I think, therefore I am. But why not just, Think. Think. Think. And not bother to assume that I must be the one thinking. Maybe the thoughts belong to someone else. To assume the thoughts that appear in the head on these shoulders as these hands type are my own is just as good as to assume that the sandwhich that these eyes see in your hand is mine just because these eyes in this head see it.

There's a giveness to thoughts though-they're personal, no one else seems to hear them unless I open my mouth, and I can do it at anytime that I'm not asleep. How can the thoughts that I can hear that you cannot hear be yours and not mine? But might as well ask why the voice the deaf man cannot hear when he uses his mouth not be his and not mine when I hear it while it's just we two in the room.

Do you have a plan to vote if you live in the US?

i was considering it .. but my big question is something like will my republican vote count in full blown democrat state?

No matter how you look at it, your vote ABSOLUTELY counts. Here goes:

1. Voting is an anonymous (or public if you want) political statement. Even if you lose, you're letting your political leaders know that you're there, who their constituencies are. These things matter to them. If you don't vote, it makes it easier for them to disregard you. And yes, they care about whether they win by 20 points or if they win by 15 points. So should you.

2. It's not just the President we're voting for. If you want to vote republican, statistically speaking, the odds are you live in a republican leaning district. This means your House representative is probably Republican. Or, even they're not republican, odds are you're in a competitive district. Meaning your vote could decide whether or not whoever your representative is keeps their job or their challenger takes it.

Many if not all states are also having state legislature elections this year as well. So if you care about having more republican members in your state legislature, then you should vote. Keep in mind that even if your congressional district isn't competitive, your state legislature district very well could be.

For example, I live in a congressional district who's had Republican representing them for over twenty years. That guy retired, and now for the first time there's actually a better than 50 percent chance that a Democrat will be elected to it, according to political analysts.

However, my state legislative district is super Democratic and there's very little chance that the Democrat incumbent will lose. The reason is congressional districts and state legislature districts just don't line up the same way, so your national congressional district could be composed on more than one state legislative district.

State legislatures MATTER. You like Republicans? I'm assuming that means you like the idea of charter schools? Do you know who decides education policy for your state? Your governor and state legislature. Even if you don't have a chance to get a majority, having more Republican legislatures will mean a better chance of fighting Democratic policies that you happen not to like.

State legislatures MATTER EVEN MORE THIS YEAR BECAUSE IT IS A CENSUS YEAR. Why is that important? Because gerrymandering, that's why! State legislatures will redraw their congressional districts and the bigger majority the dominant party has, the easier it will be for them to gerrymander the heck outta your state.

3. This is the most important reason: IF YOU DON'T USE YOUR VOTE, YOU LOSE IT. This is not a guess or some far off possibility. This is right now. The less people who vote, the less the governments invests in election infrastructure, and the more likely they are to purge voter rolls.

This happens in some states: Let's say you haven't voted in 10 years, maybe you're not very political or haven't been excited by any candidates in a while. You could literally have your voter registration revoked because you haven't voted in a while. It has happened to literally hundreds of thousands people this year alone.

The lower the turnout, the less polling stations they'll have, and the longer you have to wait to vote. Already in some places in the country people weight over 8 hours to cast their ballot. Would you wait on line for 8 hours to vote? Maybe you would, but some people can't! They work or have kids or are old and just can't stand that long.

That means you not voting is literally keeping OTHER people in your community from voting. It's not fair, but it's how it is.

Vote for God's sake. Jesus wants you to vote. Babies want you to vote. Puppies also want you to vote.

You know what...you're right, I'm an egoist. You were right, and I was wrong (for whatever I did) and I ask for forgiveness. If it is any consolation at all, I will stop posting and never bother anyone on here ever again. Just please, forget about me and move on with your life (lives?). Take care, peace, and love.
