The phrase butt hurt is homophobic
My ass is irreparable as is my mood.
Doesn' looking forward to get butthurt actually mean that you got buttpleased instead?
What... is happening?
Anal isn't supposed to hurt, so no.
Satirical works about it.
What if you want it to hurt?
A very important discussion on semantics and assplay.
@R.Graves that much was obvious from the beginning. I’m just offering a not-so-hypothetical
Or Thulsa Doom.
Make America Barbaric again.
Make Europe Russia Again.
It's less 'evil' and more along the lines of such colourful words such as "Ignorant", "Apathetic", "Detached", and "Chauvinistic". Most Americans don't want war, apparently don't want foreign adventures, don't want to look bad on the world stage. Most of them think that they have a good grand experiment going.
The problem is that they have no real power, no voice, no real capability to change things beyond the biannual elections they have, and then for two, four, six years the vile creatures they vote in run rampant and unchecked; especially globally. No American President will ever face the ICC, no Senator would ever be knocked down for killing brown or black or even just other white people by their votes and chickenhawk shit. No US government faces anything more dangerous other than 'being voted out of power' for a term or two; and then they crawl right back in when the masses get bored or angry at the other bloc.
Add on top of this the warped and consolidated media and industrial apparatus that supports the government, no matter what, drawing strong lines in the sand, and you get a populace that sees protesting as vile, riots as the most damaging thing in the world, assassinations and violence as unthinkable. For a populace that creams itself at the idea of having guns to 'protect themselves from the tyranny of the gubbermintttt', they don't care what tyrannical stuff the government does to others, or care, and are too pacified to even do something as simple as a colour-esque revolution or be damned enough to maintain any movement of change to the system even with the tools they are given by that system.
When the Dems get back in power, see if they even change anything. I mean real, lasting change, and on the global geopolitical level, not the culture-war trenches of the domestic level. They might bomb instead of invade, they might fight local voting laws, but what do they really change? Do they back off from dictating world affairs? Will they update the voting system? Pass any amendments that update or change the constitution and government? Limit their own power?
Though, in the spirit of fairness, who does? From the PSD in Romania to ANC in South Africa to the CCP in the PRC...the masses are something to always be pacified and ignored an trampled on, never listened to. It's not like Europe doesn't have corrupt institutions, self-serving governments, vile military-industrial complexes or complicit, pacifying media.
But it sure does seem, some times, that they have more of a handle on their necessary evils than the US does.
I’ll agree with the above. I think that my country has its problems, but at the end of the day, it’s my home. I try to make a difference, I march with Amnesty, I vote, but end of the day I’m one man among millions.
It’s why Republicans and Democrats cluster together. Both parties hate opposing opinions and the tribalism this causes makes people move to places where their political views are supported. And when they vote together, maybe they feel like they’re making a difference. Fuck if I know.
What I’m saying is that I won’t go out of my way to join the US military in peacetime or in a foreign war. But in the case of a war on US soil, another civil war, another Pearl Harbor? I’ll be the first man in line at the recruiting office, to fight for my home or the Union.
Red or Blue, we’re stronger together. And while America has its issues, like anywhere else, we need to work together to get shit done. Too bad that won’t happen. We need common ground, but the Left and Right are too busy trying to block each other’s legislation to help the masses. It’s pathetic, but no more pathetic than politics elsewhere, I’d argue.
Grass is always greener on the other side.
Another: Their remakes of foreign movies always make the originals look even better.
Making a strong case for NMA's most passive aggressive douchebag. That's no easy task.
You're misjudging a lot of Americans and giving people in general too much credit at the same time.
Everyone protests when it effects them. Americans are polite in general and don't ask for handout's. Most of the people you see in the streets are people NOT like them for one reason or another.
The radical idealists and such make up a small percentage of the population, while at the same time the economy is not evenly split.
The whole point with our system being setup like this is that it is suppose to be there for Americans to capitalize on in general. However "entrepreneur" is not a personality or lifestyle that fits the working class mentality. We have our industrial Russian bread lines. They are called Dollar Tree, or Dollar General. We have our section 8 housing for homeless.
Americans are quite selfish so electing Donald Trump is an obvious choice. He maintains the idea of working for a living for the working class, while at the same time is smart enough to be able to manage the fucked up situation and how it effects the morons.
They want the hamsters to get on the wheel. It's a good thing especially with these tarrifs with China going on. What happens is that it forces these boomer no working assholes to hire more staff and pump more money into the economy because it's actually cheaper than outsourcing.
So, from what I see right now, with how fucked up this goddamn system is, I really am great with Trump, and we will see with the Democrats. Most of them just smell the money and want a piece of it for themselves, like Kamala Harris and Joe Biden.
Andrew Yang is atleast like Trump where, of course, he can make a lot of money being president. However he's smart and hungry enough to use the system to make more money, and more money, and more and more and eventually the technological take-over that will occur anyways with the top corporate syndicates will force the construction of a welfare system.
The whole idea is to keep it "constitutional" so everything works out.
So we'll see what happens.
@Eshanas is about as informed on Americans as Americans are informed on the average Mexican. Everyone is fed slop from the meatgrinder of media outlets posing as news.
They Live truly was a documentary.
Oh, so most Americans thereof are militaristic, imperialistic, interventionist, and 'evil' assholes? Good to know.
