Oh I met a bunch of faggot that talk about weed like a 12 years old girl speak about her favorite band,but we just don't have the "420".
What is this "420" like what does it mean,where does that came from ?
User avatar #178 - Deeticky (04/19/2015) [-]
Where are you from?

Maybe 420 i just a U.S.A. thing? 420 nowadyas stands for April 20th (4/20). I know that the name wouldn't make as much sense in other countries where the date is given in the day-month style (i.e. 20th April). But yeah, 420 as a term for pot smoking actually came form California. You can read about it here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/420_%28cannabis_culture%29

Something to do with the date.
Maybe try googling it?
Either way, weed isn't a culture, never will be.

Makes sense. Your picture looks like a victory rally. There would be less chance a potential assassin was in a crowd of people who are cheering that he just won the election or some such.
User avatar #39 - Deeticky (04/14/2015) [-]
I really only chose that picture because it offered a good angle to see that there was no glass. Feel free to search for more pictures of the president speaking at non-victory rally events. You'll find that there's no bulletproof glass in the vast majority of them.

the problem with the seniors though is that they're easily swayed, talk to any elder person and they're VERY old fashioned and old minded, they tend to be very ignorant of what's going on around them, it's not like young people aren't involved in politics either, the problem is that young politics are different from old people's, they clash, a little too hard times. Young people also tend to be more cynical and less trusting because they know how corrupt the government can be, and they feel that no matter what they do or what they try they feel ignored.

Consider the Following,

I think of the government like the WWE, when they do listen, they tend to misinterpret it. In the 2014 Royal Rumble, the people wanted wrestler Daniel Bryan to win the royal rumble, he wasn't even in it, then the people got mad because the WWE was going with Batista, so they cheered for anyone that wasn't Batista, including Roman Reigns (the guy who main evented this year's Wrestlemania), WWE thought that the people cheered for Reigns because he was cool, not because they didn't want Batista. So this year, they went with Roman Reigns, and again, gave Daniel Bryan (the wrestler people wanted) the snub. The results, were not only the same, but it's hurt WWE twice in a row now, and it hurt Roman Reign's credibility as a future great pro wrestler. WWE like the government is trying to cater to a group they want to control instead of being listened to, most of Pro Wrestling fans are like me, nerds, but WWE is trying to cater to kids, a small portion. The government is trying to cater to the seniors, like you mentioned, and it's a small portion of the population. The reason is pretty much the same thing, they can both be controlled because they don't know any better.

Seniors can be in politics all the want, doesn't mean they'll be listened to, how many times do I hear about Seniors not wanting social security being taken away, but yet benefits keep getting taken away anyway? The only time I can remember the people actually doing the right thing was rejecting a Wal-Mart wanting to be built in my hometown's downtown area, the fact that our Mayor even considered and liked the idea of Wal-Mart there hurt his credibility, yet he still holds office. The people are not being listened to, and when they are listened to, the government misinterprets it, or just flat out ignores it.

As for our economy, I agree, it has recovered, gas prices are down which imo affects how much people can spend, by saving $1 a gallon of gas that's an extra $10-$30 a fuel up people can save and spend on something else. People I feel have also figured out not to shop at Wal-Mart anymore because they don't support local economies. I feel however that we have a lot more to do however if the US is to re-establish any credibility as not only a stable super power, but not a laughing stock in terms of our pop and government towards the rest of the world.

I agree, there's more work to be done. I tend to support small businesses as well. Yes, there are many examples of people not being listened to by politicians. There are also many examples of people being listened to by politicians. Social Security has been on the chopping block for a long time, because it costs a huge amount of money. Even though it has been reduced, the activism of senior citizens has helped to keep it from being eliminated completely. Gay marriage is another example. As the public has become more and more accepting of homosexual people, more and more states have legalized gay marriage. In fact, in my state, Minnesota, there was a ballot question, that if passed, would have defined marriage as only between one man and one woman. However, pro-LGBT activism groups fought really hard, and not only was that proposed amendment defeated, but gay marriage was actually legalized very shortly afterwards.

they don't listen to the people to begin with

you're points are great, but lets face it, our government and this upcoming election, are fucked.
User avatar #561 - Deeticky (04/14/2015) [-]
You're right, they don't listen to people, they listen to voters. Have you ever noticed how politicians seem to cater to senior citizens all the time? That's because senior citizens tend to not only have the highest voting rates, but because they are often retired, they also have a lot of time for political activism. If other groups were as active in politics as seniors are, they would be better listened to.

Also, I don't think the government is fucked. We're relatively stable right now. The economy has recovered decently, and international relations are starting to come back to pre-Bush era levels.

it doesn't matter who we vote for, we all get fucked in the end, that's the problem
User avatar #516 - Deeticky (04/14/2015) [-]
Well, in a democracy, it's impossible to build a world that conforms completely to what you want. Because people want different things, finding compromise is important. A presidential candidate has to pander to the entire American public. By default, that means there are going to be certain parts about each candidate that you like, and certain parts that you do not like. Maybe try looking into the more local elections (such as State House and State Senate)? Those candidates represent a smaller community, so maybe there will be some who come closer to your views.

Either way, if you choose not to vote, then politicians will have absolutely no reason to listen to you. After all, they don't need to take non-voters thoughts into consideration. That's one of the reason that young people/students are so often given the short-stick in politics. --They tend not to vote.
