On Sunday night, Edward Snowden asked for political asylum in Russia, and in a matter of hours President Vladimir Putin agreed to grant it.
User avatar #39895 to #39891 - CapnInterwebz (07/05/2013) [-]
I think Putin said something along the lines of "you can stay, just don't be a dick" a few days back as well. Nearly everyone else has been turning Snowden away, though. Leave it to Putin to blaze a trail.
User avatar #39897 to #39895 - akkere (07/05/2013) [-]
He said if he wanted to stay in Russia, he needs to "stop doing work aimed at harming our American partners", which I'm guessing was his way of saying "stop flowing the classified shit out and we won't hand you over".

Of course, this is Putin we're talking about.

I didn't get a sense that the words are banned, rather they've just been modified in official documents.

It's just making things gender neutral. I'm sure that you can still use gender specific words, like Freshman, without being tasered.

Actually, just had a thought.

The suffix of 'woman' is already 'man'. Hell, I don't even know anymore, and I can't really be bothered to study the etymology of the words 'man' and 'woman'.
User avatar #40282 to #40155 - oxan (07/07/2013) [-]
But it's still 'journyman.'

I'm not saying I'm in favour of it - in fact, I'm neutral on this issue - but I can see their reasoning,
User avatar #39898 to #39890 - oxan (07/05/2013) [-]
Eh, for official documents, I don't think there's any harm in replacing, say, 'Chairman' with 'Chairperson'. But that isn't to say we ban the word Chairman. If the Chairperson is a man, call him Chairman, if they're a woman, call them Chairwoman, for example.

Anything more than mere formalities in documents is stupid.

Once again I am disappointed in my state. If anyone is genuinely offended by the indiscriminate use of words involving "man" then those people are at fault, not the english language.

Just came back from an "amateur" fireworks display at a public park in Chicago which I was invited to. Shit was cash. One of those fireworks didn't launch correctly and almost hit somebody during the grand finale, which was about the best thing I've ever seen.

Not celebrating 4th of july this year. Don't feel patriotic, I don't even feel like I live in the US anymore. It is now foreign to me.

And judging by the sounds outside, mostly everyone agrees. There is a pop every now and again, but maybe 3-4 out of 200 homes around me have serious fireworks.

I just got back from a barbecue that was shooting a major amount of fireworks.

Every year that we've done this, it really wasn't so much to be patriotic but just to shoot fireworks. Lots of fireworks.

This country has become a mess in every way possible. We are more divided than ever. We are suffering economic depression, although to be fair it is worldwide, but it is the cause of so many fiat currencies, one that we endorse and continue to pump into the system.

Our law system grows increasingly weak. Our politicians grow increasingly corrupt. Many of the basic concepts our founding fathers setup have been stomped over. Imagine if they were alive today, I think they would have a heart attack.

I really could rant forever about so many different issues. I think anyone here could.
User avatar #39879 to #39877 - akkere (07/05/2013) [-]
I don't think I can recall much of a time where the country wasn't in disarray. The division has become more prevalent admittedly, but for the most part we've been going on a back-and-forth deal long since bi-partianship became a thing.

That being said, I have noticed that politicians have become much more bolder and basically careless in their negative actions. Corruption has always been prevalent ever since "lobbying" was a thing, but now it seems like they don't have much of a desire to keep it as hidden.

Historically, the constitution has always been violated constantly, and the cancer at fighting this sort of thing has been the exact cause of the division. As edgy as it sounds, there hasn't really been many qualities with much of anything in regards to the American government, both federal and states that wouldn't leave me with a sour feeling.

I just don't exactly see why people would be any more depressed now about being an American than years before.
Really, if most people actually read the news, figured out what was going on, and purged themselves of the "Libs vs. Cons fite all day err day" mentality, they'd see there was plenty of shit behind the scenes that anyone could see by reading up more in depth.
There's not much difference between Dems or Repubs if both are building the same problem, but no one seems to truly recognize that.

"Days after President François Hollande sternly told the United States to stop spying on its allies, the newspaper Le Monde disclosed on Thursday that France has its own large program of data collection, which sweeps up nearly all the data transmissions, including telephone calls, e-mails and social media activity, that come in and out of France."

They don't have the excuse "but da te-rawr-rists" either, not like that was ever valid.

Honestly, it's probably so easy to perform a data sweep with how people are reliant on the Internet, I wouldn't be surprised if more reports like this show up for other nations.

I would be surprised if other nations didn't have this kind of thing going on. What good is an intelligence agency that doesn't gather intelligence?

No black people in England to come over as free men only the slave from Africa,
Asians were nonexistent in Europe,
Hispanics didn't exist yet,
Jews were welcome in Pennsylvania one of the most religious friendly states,
same rules for Muslims,
gay people and women were treated the same everywhere,
the French were able to come over to America in the colonies and they were England's most hated enemy, so Polish and Italians (Like Columbus) would have been allowed.
They never started the New England colonies to be separate from England, it set up as a colony to harvest raw materials for the home country. And we didn't preach equality, just that men should be free and have representation for issues that effected us and that matters of faith and speech were things all men had to choose for themselves. All men were created equal= God does not favor a king to rule over men over men to rule over themselves.

I know its a joke Seth MacFarlane but please sometimes you just come off as a cunt. Epically when you try to just go on about how much we suck. We suck we get it. We weren't perfect but for a while we did better than any country could have dreamed of when we started out. We respected all faiths (That were in the colonies at the time)

Ahhhh... America.

Even though he's also alluding to how whites were also persecuted in the same way? I loathe Family Guy myself, but that's a bit of a stretch.
User avatar #39743 to #39730 - byposted (07/04/2013) [-]
I think, at the same time, you are understating what Seth has done. Yes, Family Guy is a comedy show, but Seth has been putting his political ideology (liberalism) into it for years.

Liberals believe in institutionalized racism very heavily. They are the ones who cling to Affirmative Action. The majority of Democratic voters were not White, remember. While there may have been a pun at the end of the quote, do not distance it from Seth's view and that of liberals. Liberals believe America was founded on racism and that everything before the 1960s was a huge KKK rally.

he's also alluding to how whites were also persecuted in the same way?
In order to make a parallel between these "persecuted whites" and Illegal Immigrants, which I talk of below. Overall, this is irrelevant, though.

I know its a joke Seth MacFarlane
Nah, this is what liberals actually believe. Liberals actually interpret "all men are created equal" with "all these abstract minorities should have privileges." How many Asians, Hispanics and Muslims were there in the colonial period? Better yet, how many Asians, Hispanics, Muslims, Negroes and feral bulldykes does MacFarlane have to deal with on a daily basis in his gated yuppie neighborhood?

If we dropped Seth in the middle of Africa, he would be dismembered and eaten. It is a cultural divide. Poles, kikes, and Italians are much different as Slavs, usurpers, and Southern Europeans respectively to Anglos/Celts. In the end, these people integrated through generations of proving themselves; not any government amnesty.

Guys......I have come here today........bringing grave news.

Our friend, and hero, Kolimm.......has been banned at 11:17 eastern time July 4th

But in our hearts, he will live on.

In his memory, I was planning on spamming for 12 straight hours, but then I would share the same fate, and I believe Kolimm wouldn't want that.

So instead, let us just take a moment of silence for our fallen comrade.

Thank you.

Canada, and do not confuse this with my opinion, is an illegitimate nation. Most of its major cities which fuel its economy are near the US border. When us militaristic jew hating rightists dictate military affairs after pulling many soldiers out of crapistan, we will reclaim Canada with the exception of Quebec, which can get some booty of its own.

That being said, I know close to nothing about the geopolitics of Canada and this is a shame since Canada can be worked with to create a separatist state in the North. I believe we wouldn't so much invade Canada as be almost welcomed there, in a vacuum-of-power scenario. Rightists will never hold power over the whole of the United States, remember, only sections in the North and South.

I see Quebec as a nice area of Canada, made up of former French colonists who have secured their posterity. They're obviously different culturally from the rest of Canada and the United States.

I wonder where to begin. Those were the first words to think of. It was nothing of action but all of perspective. I typed staring down so many people I consider friends and yet in paranoia, I know they hate me, I knew it because of my nature was that of a child who would destroy and make peace in the same breath. Cry and coo with a single exhale. That I would bash and beat down those around me as cruelly and self destructively as possible. Debate was but a game to me. I held no personal connection to my values as I once did so passionately. Now I do not know what drives these words, my will to conquer, my shrewdness to correct, or broken self esteem that lusted for praise or fear for faith, wit, and words. Words that meant nothing come tomorrow, no matter how beautiful.
Sad truth of it is in the same breath that I condemn I extend the hand of friendship for I know in all my cruelty I mean well. I pass it off as a personality, but all it is suffering extending outward. My short time on earth made me cold, dark and bitter.And yet.. So very..
Kind. I act in kindness yet I speak in cruelty. I know pain and to act kind adds to my burden but still I do. Who I am and what I believe are always at ends with each other. They are not contradicting I believe but rather fighting for importance.
I once wrote I am nothing but the pages and the words upon them. So cold and dead lead to the existence of the name Undead Will. I was neither alive nor dead but simply a marker in the rare realm of abstract thought. I lose who I was and with it what I was. I become words. I could be little more than my laptop and still show more love. Reality and sanity are at odds. Sanity causes pain but is also bliss, while reality is neither interesting nor enjoyable but only to allow me to be insane.

I look at how many words I have left. Too many or too few. It scares me to think of the extremes of this. That having said too much and bored or too little and killed my work. It was, Sadly too few
