Republican calls for ‘civil war’ if Trump loses
  • (Reposting from another thread)

    Enough is enough. Shit like this is putting us on a path for another insurrection.

    Here is a sample letter to provide George Lang, especially if you are an OH resident. George Lang contact form

    subject: "Call for Resignation Due to Undemocratic Remarks"

    Dear Senator Lang,

    I am writing to express my profound disappointment and concern regarding your recent comments about the potential need for a civil war if certain political outcomes are not achieved. Your statement, “I’m afraid if we lose this one, it’s going to take a civil war to save the country, and it will be saved,” is not only deeply irresponsible but also fundamentally undemocratic. Such rhetoric is dangerous and unbecoming of a public servant in a democratic society.

    As a concerned citizen, I am compelled to voice my strong objection to your words. They undermine the very principles upon which our nation was founded: the peaceful transition of power and the rule of law. Democracy thrives on debate, disagreement, and ultimately, the will of the people as expressed through free and fair elections. The suggestion that violence is an acceptable response to losing an election is antithetical to these principles.

    An apology for this grave error is simply not sufficient. The damage caused by promoting the idea of civil unrest as a solution to political disagreement cannot be undone with mere words of regret. Your statement has the potential to incite division and violence, putting our nation and its citizens at risk.

    In light of the seriousness of your comments, I call on you to resign from your position as a United States Senator. The responsibilities of your office require a commitment to uphold democratic values and to lead with integrity. Your recent remarks have shown a disregard for these responsibilities, and as such, stepping down is the most honorable course of action you can take for the sake of our country's stability and unity.

    The United States faces numerous challenges that require thoughtful, collaborative solutions. It is imperative that our leaders prioritize dialogue and cooperation over divisive and inflammatory rhetoric. I urge you to consider the impact of your words and to take responsibility for them by resigning your seat.

    Sincerely,

    [Your First Name]

    Additionally i encourage looking up your Senators and contacting them as well:

  • What's Vance got to do with it?
  • Marriage largely is dissolved by a no-fault divorce meaning you can get divorced for any reason without proving wrongdoing. Before no-fault divorces you had to prove fault or wrongdoing of some kind such as being beaten but even then the bar to prove fault was hard and difficult which left women (and men) in abusive relationships, loveless marriages, etc.

    The republican party as a whole has been moving against no fault divorces, and this will mean some people are not able to justify a divorce if the abuse is not deemed serious enough. Jd vance has spoken against no fault divorce and has said that it enables people to change their spouse as often as they change their underwear. Which to me sounds like jd vance doesn't ever change his underwear which is kind of gross but the smaller issue here.

  • Ofc, though the problem when talking to anyone older about inflation then they'll think that the cost just increased at the same rate as inflation. But the problem is that tuition in particular is one of the fastest rising costs that has blown through inflation many times over. By showing someone the present value of their tuition against current tuition they'll be able to realize that it outpaced inflation and it is much less feasible to work yourself through college while working.

  • I think it would be hard to get banned there.
  • I must respectfully disagree with your assertion that not using punctuation and paragraphs should be a bannable offense on every form of written media to exist because while it is true that punctuation and paragraphs greatly enhance the readability and clarity of written communication it is also important to recognize that language and writing are inherently flexible and evolving forms of expression there are numerous contexts and situations where the rigid application of punctuation and paragraphs may not be necessary or even desirable consider the vast array of poetic forms that eschew traditional punctuation and paragraph structure for the sake of rhythm flow and emotional impact similarly many modernist and postmodernist literary works deliberately abandon conventional punctuation to challenge readers' perceptions and to convey a sense of disorientation or stream-of-consciousness thought furthermore the digital age my name is chatgpt has given rise to new forms of communication such as text messaging and social media where brevity and speed often take precedence over strict grammatical rules in these contexts the use of punctuation and paragraphs is often minimal or non-existent yet the messages conveyed are still understood by the intended audience imposing a blanket ban on the absence of punctuation and paragraphs would not only stifle creativity but also fail to acknowledge the diverse ways in which people communicate it is also worth noting that not everyone has the same level of proficiency in written language for those with dyslexia other learning disabilities or those for whom english is a second language the conventional rules of writing may pose significant challenges these individuals should not be penalized or excluded from participating in written discourse simply because they struggle with punctuation and paragraph structure instead we should foster an inclusive environment that values the content and intent of their communication rather than its adherence to rigid formalities additionally there are cultural differences in writing styles that must be considered what is deemed appropriate or acceptable in one language or cultural context may not hold true in another imposing a universal standard for punctuation and paragraph use would ignore these important variations and contribute to a homogenization of global communication that undermines cultural diversity therefore while punctuation and paragraphs undoubtedly play a crucial role in enhancing the clarity and effectiveness of written communication it is neither practical nor fair to enforce their use universally across all forms of media doing so would overlook the rich diversity of expressive styles the unique challenges faced by different individuals and the evolving nature of language itself instead we should encourage a more flexible and inclusive approach to writing that respects and accommodates the myriad ways in which people choose to express themselves

  • Dramatic
  • This has nothing to do with accepting or not accepting people for who they are

    to you. you do not see this as someone's self expression because you do not value it. That is OK if you don't have anything similar you'd like to express yourself with, but that doesn't mean other people do not. Would you not agree that some people identify with their hair, tattoos, style of clothing, etc? Piercings can be the same way

  • TIL the term "Mad as a Hatter" likely came from hat makers using mercury and the resulting mercury poisoning.
  • Fun fact- Mormons believe that Joseph Smith translated golden plates into the book of Mormon by sticking his head in a hat. For decades they tried to hide this and portrayed artwork with him as translating the golden plates directly, but i think it was a lawsuit that caused them to start portraying artwork correctly and owning up to Joseph Smith being a mad hatter sticking his head in a hat to receive the word of God.

    Sounds kind of silly when you think about it like that but they'll of course tell you it was divinely inspired. Just like when he married a 14 year old by promising her family a spot in the highest degree of heaven.
