I'm confused
  • Initially we didn't know that the shooter was Republican.

    More over though I see a lot of people discussing stats for voters based off of 2020 but I really don't think that's a good year to base it on given that the covid lockdowns were taking place. A lot of people had nothing better to do and actually paid attention to politics. A lot of people were miserable, partly because of Trump's awful handling of covid but also just the fact that we were going to be miserable anyways.

    All we really know at the end of the day is that Trump feeds off a lot of occurrences like this and it's worrisome. Many people are more anxious for their futures than ever before right now.

  • Who here likes Ratatouille?
  • Guessing this person made some sort of mistake.

    A lot of people on Fetlife for example know to vet their partners thoroughly so they don't end up with a serial killer and to be careful with the information trail they leave on there.

  • We're cooked...
  • Man, people on lemmy need to look outside of their own bubbles a little more. There's more than just those in my camp and those against my camp.

    There are uninformed voters who genuinely do not pay as much attention to politics as those of us on this platform do. Uninformed voters exist and they are influenced by the big headlines like this.

    This is why other factors regarding a candidate such as whether or not they are likeable matter. It's not for me. It's not for you or any other hardline party entrenched voter. It's for them, the ones who barely pay attention.

  • Gunshots reportedly fired at Donald Trump rally - as former president rushed off stage
  • I feel like you're a little out of touch here.

    There are hardline Democrats and Republicans who aren't going to change their positions over anything. There's also many people who don't pay close attention to politics and only pick up on big news like this. Those are the people that are going to be influenced unfortunately. These people exist. They are uninformed, easily influenced and they can swing the outcome unfortunately.

  • Gunshots reportedly fired at Donald Trump rally - as former president rushed off stage
  • This was the worst possible outcome. Unless someone intends on finishing the job it may as well be his election now.

    He'll spend the rest of the election telling people how strong he is, how Biden could not have survived and he'll use the attack to validate all his claims of Democrat corruption/Republican righteousness.

  • Let's see who's gonna get roped into this job
  • Even if he didn't try to have Pence killed, he doesn't need Pence at this point. He's got the evangelical voters now. I believe Rubio is out of Florida, so that won't work out for obvious reasons.

    Meanwhile the other two have a bit too much spine and self-respect for themselves still. The orange ego maniac will be looking for someone that obeys him at every turn.

  • Dad life
  • YouTube is great in general. I remember as a teen going into college thinking that the changes were going to kill it but really the platform has a lot of great content for everything. Everything except gaming anyways, which is a bit ironic.

    Tutorials, cooking videos, engineering and math videos, historical discussions and theory.

  • ‘As Long As I Gave It My All’...
  • “there’s a fuckton of low-information voters who are unlikely to vote for a guy who clearly displays Biden’s health issues”.

    There's a lot of people who complain but know the reality of the situation and will vote according but low info voters are another issue altogether. People on here don't realize that.

    There's a lot of people out there who don't pay nearly the same amount of attention to the news as the people on lemmy do. You have to work around these groups. This is why being likeable is important. These people lack most of the information, many of them don't even care. You can't just sit there and scream at them how they're ruining their own lives. That doesn't work.

  • History is written by the victors
  • Even if you look past the cruelties committed, it's still disappointing.

    I've read a variety of books on various wars and those that we were involved in were mostly disappointing in regards to tactical decisions. Everything after the revolution either feels like a fluke or just simply feels as if we brute forced our way through with resources until the post WWII era where various campaigns failed due to guerilla warfare. I'm oversimplifying but especially early on in its life the country's militia was a bit unimpressive.

  • I'm helping I promise!
  • Yeah, I just snip the tips on the front ones usually. I've been doing it since he was little and while he doesn't appreciate it he has never fought or clawed me in the process of it.

  • My disdain for mega banks knowns no end
  • My old man was like this. It always felt awkward though because he made more money than a lot of my classmate's parents combined but it didn't show because he spent it so quickly. We rationalize it a lot by thinking about how he grew up in extreme poverty. That said, he stroked out when I was a teenager and there was nothing to fall back on afterwards.

  • It's not all that broad. And I look forward to their indignance.
  • Says the dude actively using twitter. GTFOO of twitter people.

    Centralization sucks. I know a lot of people who are currently dropping BlueSky and migrating back to Twitter because it was just too much of a loss for them unfortunately.


    Can't be bothered responding to each post individually so I'll put this here.

    First off. Mastadon isn't that great of an experience. There's a reason it's not even at half the amount of users it started with. The devs don't listen to feedback and at the current time attempting to get the average person on there is a struggle.

    Second off. There are people who use twitter for professional purposes. There's also a lot of companies that refuse to drop the platform which means people collaborating or coordinating with them end up using it for that purpose too. A lot of people and groups with large followings still find moving off the platform too risky. I'm not among those groups but you're being a bit ignorant if you think they don't exist or that they don't matter.

  • Oh Joe...
  • Biden was was talking like someone with the grogginess just getting woken up in the middle of the night then smoking a joint right before coming on. (i.e. We’re fucked either way.)

    As someone who doesn't like giving Biden free passes just because he's not Trump, I feel like I haven't seen anyone mentioning the time limit set for responses during the debate. It clearly was not in his favor. Trump can talk your ear off about any nonsense he can dream of at a moments notice.

    Biden has always had to take time to think. Look at his speeches, look at the times he responds to reporters. There's always pauses and gaps between responses where he has to think.

  • Ironing
  • I like ironing my clothes though and if you show up to a formal family event with a shirt that looks like you rolled around in it, then I will offer to iron for you before the next time.
