    Amazing that people don't embrace a pointless spoiler candidacy.

    America’s Homelessness Crisis Exacerbates As Leaders Look The Other Way

    It’s no secret there is a serious homelessness problem in the United States.

    In recent years, it has assumed alarming proportions, from rough sleeping to being chronically homeless to living in crowded, makeshift accommodations.

    https://popularresistance.org/ameri...is-exacerbates-as-leaders-look-the-other-way/

    America easily has $20 billion to end homeless in our country. They could have actually prevented homeless in the first place. Yet Biden won't lift a finger to get the job done. He clearly doesn't care about the problem, and neither does the entirety of the democrat party.

    Facts like these are why I will never ever believe... a democrat or a republican.

    Why would they spend $20 billion on solving the homeless crisis when the homeless crisis gives them an excuse to spend $90 billion on their favorite pork barrel, AND has the added bonus that you get to campaign on being "Tough On Crime"?

    Here's a real winning issue! Michigan Republicans want to end paid family leave, which enables workers to care for a new baby or sick family member.
    Because they are so pro life.

    Elon Musk blamed Jews for antisemitism. Why not, we are responsible for everything else, right? He is suing Anti Defamation League for criticizing Nazi and racist posts on X

    This is really great. An awesome outlook for one's own sanity.

    Here's my concern. When we ignored the asses and took the high road for a few decades we were given Trump and MAGA. Which has eroded the rights of women and minorities an unimaginable amount.

    And I believe we lucked out to have only given up that much...

    We have to do something different.

    A waitress in a South Dakota Denny's refused to serve to Black long haul truck drivers. Insisted they leave the restaurant for crime of trying to eat breakfast while Black.

    The waitress was fired. Will she say it is her sincerely held religious beliefs that she should not be forced to serve Black people?

    It's a good analogy.
    The issue is 95% of the asses believe they are the tiger in this story.

    This is it. Right here. MAGA types read this thinking they are the tiger AND the lion of this story. The cognitive dissonance is astounding.

    No idea. This is the problem with fascism running rampant in a democratic society. We don't have all of the answers at this point. As things are going, I think the natural progression is for MAGA to eventually become an insurgent style group of terrorists, and that is if they don't somehow seize power.

    What if the mob had found congress on Jan 6th?

    The mob was literally right outside the door congress members were hiding behind, when a police officer literally used himself as bait and lured them away from the door.

    Some congress members would have almost certainly been killed.

    That's pretty dystopian, IMO.

    America is a "dystopian paradise" right now, as it is.
