I mean, if I understand it right the UK came to be known as that later. The various countries that make up the UK still retain their respective identities on top of the collective “UK” identity, right?
The US doesn’t really have that. From the beginning the States have always had a collective identity, with at best their individual identities being “just” a portion of a greater whole.
So yeah it is pedantic.

I don’t blame them, that’s a bullshit definition. I’m pro vaccine, I’m vaccinated, I’ve encouraged everyone I know to be vaccinated. I still oppose mandating the vaccine though.

I think the original definition is wrong too then. If Fox News disagrees on that they can also go pound sand, and are idiots for being mad at “regulation” and not “law”.

They’re just grifting as usual. The definition “change” was brought up over social media recently (nevermind the fact that it was apparently done in 2018…), Faux News caught wind of more anti-vax/culture war nonsense, so of course they jump on it like a treasonous propaganda network jumps on a desperate attempt to distract from the anniversary of an insurrection they are responsible for.
Exactly like that.

Ok, so apparently, Ken Akamatsu (the manga creator of Love Hina and Negima) will be running for an Upper House seat in the Japanese Parliament.
I appreciate his concerns about manga being poorly westernized (think the failed push Capcom did in the 2000s that resulted in Donte and the Wife Arm), but I don’t think he has any idea how to be a politician.

I mean, how did he qualify “Westernize”? His own works are a good example: Love Hina, Negima, UQ Holder etc are all great stories. But they very much rely on many tropes that either won’t fly nowadays (Love Hina) or sexualizing of underage characters (Negima) that simply doesn’t translate well in countries with stricter age of consent laws.
In some good news, Trump has cancelled his Jan 6 victory tour. No doubt because he’s still sore about how his recent rallies have had embarrassingly low turnout, imagine if his failed coup on the nation conference was met with a similarly failed attendance rate?
As it goes, Cohen was initially arrested for his crimes acted on behalf of Trump. He was sentenced and served some time in prison, however he was later put on house arrest for fear of Covid infection. But during that time he wrote a tell-all book against Dear Leader, so Trump sicked his attack dog Barr on Cohen and put him back in not only prison solitary confinement. He apparently was treated so harshly that he came down with PTSD over it. He was able to get out and back in house arrest some time later, and now is seeking litigation against the former dog of the former president.
That’s some authoritarian despot stuff right there.

The sexual misconduct charges against former NY Gov Andrew Cuomo have been dropped. The district AG says despite credibility there isn’t enough evidence to bring to trial.
A California superintendent and other school officials conducted an investigation into and subsequently punished a group of students for painting Swastikas over their bodies and sharing said photos over the internet. And also for underage drinking, but I digress.
They have subsequently been given daily death threats from Nazi sympathizers.
And here I am feeling like this.

I believe he was referring to westernization as a whole, but most of his arguments rely on the censorship aspect.
Which, to be fair, has merit, but a part of me thinks it’s just an excuse for him to keep drawing naked lolis.

Trump is the definition of a loser:
First president since Hoover to leave office with fewer jobs than when he entered.
Lost popular vote TWICE, the first time even after cheating.
First one-term president in 30 years
Went bankrupt 6 times
Somehow bankrupted casinos
Impeached twice. Do you know how bad you have to fuck up to get impeached once, let alone TWICE?

Most schools have an ethics policy that gives them the latitude to punish for certain off campus things, particularly dangerous or illegal activities such as underage drinking and threats of violence.
As for the Nazi stuff, there’s definitely a debate to be had there.

In addition, he’s the only president in the history of polling to never break 50% approval.
And something like 4/5 people he endorsed lost in their campaigns.
Most presidents have only like 1 or 2 albatrosses over their necks. This guy barely went a week without something happening, so much so it’s hard to keep a tally off the top of your head.

@Zincy
Yeah, but their have been a few cases where the courts have sided with the kid. I don’t know the details of the case so it’s hard to say any more.
@Thanotos Omega
Without details it’s hard to say, especially since underage drinking was involved. However if this was a case where students were just drawing swastikas on themselves out of school and taking pictures and the school punished them I don’t know how that isn’t unconstitutional. I can understand why minority students wouldn’t feel safe, but that alone wouldn’t give a school authority to take action.

I think i know why because they want him to run against trump in the next election is the only dirty enough to challenge trump.

A former tech boss turned GOP strategist (a term I use loosely) turned a GOP fundraiser into a rant about the Jews.
And it’s wrong of us to call the GQP Nazis because??? You literally have big wigs in the party making claims about global Jewish conspiracies, like the fucking Naizs.
