Woman: "Hi 911, I have a guy with a knife in my house right now trying to rape me"...
911: "Ok i can help with that, would you like the number to a place you can go and shoot up some heroin?"
Woman: "Ummm, no, I dont think that will help, I have a guy here trying to rape me with a knife"...
911: "Ohhh, ok, well best I can do is you just sit there and let him rape you, then afterwards I will give you a number to a PP officer where you can get an abortion!"
Woman: "Umm.. cant you send someone over with a gun or something to help protect me"
911: "Sorry we dont do that anymore, we defunded that department. But good news is the rapist will at least get some needed therapy when he is done raping you, so no worries"
@awl honestly, thats how the left adddress all problems. They think you just move money around and problem fixed..
Poor people: take it from the rich and dump it on the poor
Environment, throw money at it
police, defund them
Education, dump money at it..
dont get me wrong the solution very well may involve funding or defunding and otherwise moving the budget around. but if you talk about your "solution" in terms of money rather than actions that cost money, well you arent offering a solution at all.
@awl yup.. americans arent really critical thinkers anymore. Pretty much I expected the left to cheer on anything that came out ofBLM no matter how asinine.
Dont get me wrong I have nothing against BLM's message of "blacks are suffering, help us".. but as a strongly left leaning organizations that have all the failings of anyone on the extream end of the politicl spectrum. Namely group think, complete inability to accept messages outside of their own agenda and talking points, and overly simplistic "solutions" that get us no where.
@awl i have been trying to study deeply the esclation of large wars both civil and world wars.. not just the big bullet points but all the subtle and consistent patterns I can piece together to see what is consistently an indication and what isnt.
Everything I see hands down suggests this is on its way to a major war. Not saying this wont deescalate, the riots might end and the war might not come for another year or more.. or maybe it will happen soon. But I promise you it is headed there very quickly...
* extreamism towards both ends of the spectrum
*Fanatical nationalism and/or group think on both sides
* extrem propaganda from every news outlet
* extrem tending towards violent opposition to anyone callingout the propaganda, etc
*both sides supporting reducing individual rights (left with freedom of speech and guns, right with things like the patriot act or using the military to silence protests)
Loooong, only semi-related
Not that they'd get there in time anyway. Never count on the police to stop a violent crime I'm progress. They're useless for THAT purpose.
