Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

The hand-eye coordination improvements from gaming has been shown by studies to make for better surgeons, though. :thumbsup:

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

Yes.

Links between violent video games and actual violence have been trying to have been found since the 90s outrage over Mortal Kombat. There's no causal link at all.

If anything, a few...

Re: The One and Only 2020 Downballot Races Thread

Agreed. Doxxing is posting people's private personal information. Home address, kids' school, personal phone number, work phone number (not public), place of work (not public), etc.

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

I'm worried Biden is the new John Kerry. "Hey, let's run someone white, old and safe!" Unfortunately Kerry came across as a touch boring, too. With a long record for Republicans to swiftboat him...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

It'll end up happening in Jan or Feb 2020 under a Democratic president and fox news / Trump crowd will scream "see the markets hate Democrats, look what happens".

Just watch.

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

Put that way, it sounds awful.

But I'd gladly pay health insurance money in taxes instead and have no fucking copays, deductibles, wrangling about stuff being covered or not, random bills you...

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

My wife has a.dual-major psych/CJ undergrad, a grad degree in Social Work, and a grad degree in Educational Leadership (degree 2 was because she couldn't find work, really, in red rural MI). She...

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

Yeah, he's doing a great job.

The 5 milliseconds the moderators are allowing for answers is kinda ridiculous. I feel like even the less windy candidates don't have time to really answer much.

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

He's Black and born in america. How is that not African-American?

It's not fucking "hereditary-decendents-of-slaves-American". It's "AFRICAN-American"

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

I mean, he was also obviously a bit flustered and had to wing a response to this. Her attitude "he's an Other, not an American, and a scary terrorist" was the subtext, which is what McCain responded...

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

If we're not gonna try for some of the rust-belt, no free-trade middle of the road folks that flipped to Trump, Warren is the best shot, I think. She really seems good and honest and...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Hilarious.

Not sure if the Trump people don’t realize this can be found out easily, or just don’t care. Probably the latter. Small print is there for their CYA.

Bingo
Why go with O'Rourke for the middle when you could go with the safe middle with Biden?

Him running made more sense before Biden got in.

Re: On white supremacy, minority relations, and how to protest

My wife and I tried to watch it at some point in the early 2000s while watching through some classics and got bored and turned it off. \_(ツ)_/¯

I’ll gladly watch some Kurosawa though.

Re: One & Only Illegal Immigration Thread: Part IX

This is what I never really understood about it. Growing up in rural MI (village of < 1k people, and a lot of years in the neighboring small city at ~40k) there’s so many angry racist types that rant...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Bernie was pretty straightforward about this in the last debate.



So, more taxes, but less premiums. What precisely that means for everyone it is surely going to vary a bit. Like Obamacare,...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

A few things on Obama vs Trump on immigration.

Yes, Obama wasn’t great on immigration. His administration was kinda centrist on a few things like this (Interventionism, for example). Yes, problems...

Re: One & Only Illegal Immigration Thread: Part IX

Didn't realize Chicago and New York had so many. Also for some reason I blanked and didn't think of CA. I guess I was thinking Texas and New Mexico and Arizona and such.

Re: One & Only Illegal Immigration Thread: Part IX

Doesn’t that only help on a local / smaller level?

Wouldn’t the extra population just give more EC votes to border states like Texas or whatever, without more voters to change the voting balance...
