Technically, his mother was a US citizen living abroad when he was born. You’re considered a “natural born citizen” if your born to at least one parent who is a current US citizen even if your mother gives birth in foreign territory.

“Hey, why am I blocked? I don’t care about GG. I was pointing out that Harper is kind of being a jerk and abusing her power.”

HOW DARE YOU QUESTION OUR ABUSE OF POWER! SHUT UP! SHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP!
The fact that you questioned our abuse of power shows that you deserved to be blocked.”

This is somewhat promising but let’s see what Eron Gjoni’s lawyer (I hope he has one by now) will do with it before we get too carried away.

I don’t “hate” LW, but if there is proof she’s been abusing the law to censor criticism about her past actions, then I want her to face legal penalties.

I’ve got to be honest I don’t know much about this guy. I do what I can to keep up with politics but US politics are always wrapped in party rhetoric. Every news article seems to be an opinion piece. I just want the facts so I can make my own decision. All I want to know is what they’ve done in the past and what they say they’re planning on doing.

I agree with some of this guys videos but then he starts unironically going on about the Illuminati controlling the music industry.

Just more evidence that they’re blocking people based on political beliefs rather than harassment.

I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that Obama was blocked for a while. As if these people were so far left that even Obama was to much of a right-winger for them.

Shit. I meant to say terrifying not terrific. Stupid spell check.

No. I’m a “North American student” and I’m not that pathetically weak neither are a lot of others I know. It’s really the vocal minority that want to tone-police everything.

I’d say a lot has already been accomplished. Some people on the anti side still keep bringing it up so that they have a clear enemy. On the other hand, people on the pro side still see corruption that needs someone to keep an eye on.

It’s like the Korean War. The bulk of the fighting has stopped, but no one signed signed a treaty.

I saw this. That whole anti-feminism prank was actually pretty terrific. I mean, these people are willing to get violent about it.

His last name is Coffin because he keeps digging his own grave.

Yeah, he can be a bit of a dick. His whole “religion is always bad and has never helped anyone” thing is not for me. But if people agree with him and want to support him then that’s their choice. I don’t mind.

Personally, I agree with his rejection of feminism and a few other things, but other than that he’s a bit of an ego maniac. He hasn’t done anything noteworthy in the scientific community outside of thought experiments about genetics and culture. He hasn’t actually done much in terms of experimentation. He’s more of a science writer and an atheism advocate.

My point exactly. There are people in both parties that have disdain for the poor. There are also people in both parties who would like to see lower classes do well (at the very least, be safer and have more opportunities) but the way in which they want this to be achieved differs.

Lol. Sounds like it would be hard to fund.

But in all seriousness, I respect the rights of organizations to lobby the government. I just wish they had a little less power. At the very least, it would be nice to have more transparency about who’s influencing and funding who.

Are they implying that the Democrats don’t hate the poor?
Aren’t politicians from both parties in the pockets of corporations, just different corporations?
Can’t I be pro-capitalism and also pro-charity?
Don’t both parties spend money on useless shit?
Both parties talk about the free market until their friends need a tax brake or an exception to the regulations.
Both parties have their intelligent hard-workers and their lazy idiots.

Let’s stop pretending the two parties are that different. They like to exaggerate their differences because it creates a nice “us vs them” narrative. This kind of narrative helps you get elected.

You’ll have to excuse a lot of people giving excessively short explanations. They answer these kinds of questions a lot.

You eastern Europeans are really nationalistic.
Every time I see a Russian online they’re praising Putin. It’s as if Russians think he can do no wrong.
In the US we make our leaders into jokes. Even the ones we like, we openly mock.
It’s OK to have a healthy respect for your leaders but you should never lick their boots. People in power need to be watched carefully and their power needs to be limited.

Though I can’t really condone some of our recent military actions (most of us are really sick of the “War on Terror” and the powers congress gave the president after 9/11 need to be revoked), I must point out that a lot of our foreign bases are at the request of the countries they’re stationed in (especially the smaller ones). We’re allowed to have strategic positions in those areas while those countries get help if they are ever attacked.
