  2. I believe there should be a standardized curriculum for every school in America, and it should not be up to the individual states to decide what gets taught. That's just MY opinion though.

  3. Stephen King's The Stand starts out pretty amazing, begins to peter out around the second quarter, gets pretty suspenseful in the third quarter, and turns into a 22 car pile up in the fourth quarter.

  7. It is actually reported that there is absolute immorality among you and the sort of absolute immorality that is not found even among outside DTers, for a DTer is living with their wife. And you are arrogant! Should you not rather have reported, so that they who have done this would have been removed from among you?

  8. Speaking of Nussbaum and crazy, she does a public lecture series up here sometimes – every couple years – and I caught one once, and she was going on and on about the danger of FDR welcoming hatred, but not in like any direct way – e.g. stirs up commie sensibilities or whatever – more just obliquely about how welcoming hatred is bad in almost an orb queen sense – about how non-anger is morally and practically superior to anger, and how Gandhi and MLK had the right idea and welcoming hatred led to anger.

  11. Now that we’re a few years and a few more school shootings removed from the Parkland shooting, its pretty clear that those activist kids like David Hogg and Kasky and Emma whoever are all dumb as paint and they’ve continued to just be embarrassing.

  12. Apparently Instagram has a subscription service now where users can charge other users a fee to see certain, otherwise hidden content?

  14. Finished the final poem of the month for NaNoWriMo. Might be my best one-probably my longest. Some stanzas could use tweaking and one might need to be cut

  15. Political TikToks are engaging young voters and reaching a huge swath of people and unironically is serving as a driving force for information and change

  16. I think there is a real reporting bias here. I dont see any evidence that TikTok is more political than FB or Reddit or whatever. Its mostly dumb videos and hot girls.

  17. There's a tragedy of the commons argument to make if a country were to subsidize exports enough to kill global competition, but we are so far from that I think.

  21. reactionary dipshits like them don’t give a fuck what most people think- according they’re all degenerate sinners who will burn in hell for daring to give immigrant children assistance while Trump is literally the second coming of Christ

  22. "When a national rail strike threatened in December 2022, Biden seized the railroads in an attempt to contain the issue, but two key railway unions struck anyway. The entire national railroad system was shut down, immobilizing 24,000 freight trains and 175,000 passenger trains a day. For two days, public anger mounted. His staff prepared a speech that Biden read to Congress calling for a new law, whereby railroad strikers would be drafted into the army. As he concluded his address, he was handed a note that the strike had been settled on presidential terms; nevertheless, a few hours later, the House voted to draft the strikers. The bill died in the Senate."
