Joe Biden faces increasing pressure to quit the race, but has spent a lifetime overcoming the odds
  • If Biden is the nominee, Trump wins. It's literally that simple. I'm personally fine with that because I think Joe Biden deserves to be remembered and hated as the selfish narcissist and right-wing enabler he always has been.

  • NYT Opinion | Donald Trump Is Unfit to Lead
  • At no point did I say third parties have no place in us politics, nor did I say never vote for third parties.

    Not voting or voting third party for POTUS does nothing. It’s just pure vanity.

  • NYT Opinion | Donald Trump Is Unfit to Lead
  • It's solved many problems.

    The point that the American historians quoted above are making is that if you enjoy certain policies, like being able to vote for senators, women's rights, or progressive taxation, thank a third party voter.

  • NYT Opinion | Donald Trump Is Unfit to Lead
  • Instead of trying to convince tens of thousands of voters in each swing state to handwave a genocide, you should ask Biden to stop the genocide. It's the more realistic strategy, and it's also the moral one.

    Political Memes @lemmy.world sub_ubi @lemmy.ml

    tl;fp

    "I Ain't Reading All That; Free Palestine"

    > The meme enrages Israel supporters because Israel apologia depends on mountains of verbiage to spin obvious atrocities as reasonable and appropriate. At some point the kids noticed this was happening, and started dismissing all the narratives.

    > ...Without mountains of narrative, all you’ve got is a nonstop deluge of raw video footage depicting the blatant genocidal criminality of Israel. No narrative overlay is required atop a video of a baby beheaded by Israeli military explosives. It stands on its own. You’d only need narrative to explain why the footage of the headless baby doesn’t say bad things about the side that’s dropping the bombs.

    > ..Manipulators understand that they can use narrative to promote material agendas if they can get people to believe those narratives, and it enrages them when people handwave away the narrative and stick solely with the raw data of material reality. If you’ve based your life around trading empty narrative fluff for real material resources and gains, having your narratives dismissed can feel like holding a huge pile of currency that suddenly got devalued to zero. Of course the manipulators would be upset about this.

    How can I see totals per up and down vote in sync? Right now it combines them.

    Every time you hear the Reddit CEO talking about how they need to become profitable, remember they raised $250m and then spent the last couple years building this

    Federated and local forums on the same homepage?

    I'd like to restart an old community with fedibb. The throwback phpbb UI is irresistible!😳 In addition to our own local forums, is it possible to include a couple forums from https://fedibb.ml/ such as "Music" and "Video Games" on the homepage and have my users interact?
