Doesn’t change where it started. And believe it or not, learning that Nazis were using atrocities caused the USA to realized they were bad, like forcing women of minorities to not be able to physically have kids.

As the resident UK user here…
Yes the UK does have a lot of problems with the Government. No it’s not as bad as how things are going in the US, but it’s still very bad (EG Brexit)
And while the UK doesn’t have a homophobia problem as bad as the US, we still have a very, VERY bad problem with transphobes/TERFs, not helped by the crime rate against them and the press going out of their way to dead name/misgender trans victims

Saying whether Davis or Trump are bigger traitors are semantic arguments.
Davis ran the Confederacy. Trump ran America, but sure as hell is shown to love the Confederacy better. And China, and Russia, and North Korea, and…
The Confederacy were our enemies. Trump openly simps for any and every one of America’s modern enemies, when he’s not praising the Confederacy. Usually while undermining America’s allies.
620,000+ people died in the Civil War, approximately 360,000 of which were from the Union. Over a 1,100,000 Americans died from Covid, and 2 separate studies found the Trump administration’s response (both to, and lackthereof) as directly responsible for around half of it. So basically Trump got as many people killed from Covid as died in the Civil War, and twice as many as Union soldiers died.
Davis had Union national secrets as Confederate president, being a former military man and senator. Trump is all but confirmed to have sold national secrets to our enemies.

You know, it’s one thing to acknowledge a country’s flaws. It’s a whole nother thing in attempting to ignore anything bad from other countries because of a raging hate-boner for one.
Is the U.S pretty shitty? Yeah, but we’re not going to let other countries slide because we’re always in the trending section.

Oh I have no problem blaming Trump for some foreign Covid deaths. That’s how pandemics work. But that butterfly effect is way beyond my comprehension.
So I just blame him for the stuff happening in his sandbox, for which he had control over. And what happened wasn’t good.
This is the Speaker vote all over again. I’m all for humiliating McCarthy. Fuck’em. But eventually a stalled House will start doing damage to the nation as Congress grinds to a halt.

And Trump gave the go ahead for Operation Warp Speed (which is why some of his die hard fans, including Ghost of True Capitalist Radio quit supporting him). Though he also set it up to where if you do have side effects from a vaccine you can’t sue the pharmaceutical companies.

The House has now cancelled all votes for the rest of the week as the sedition caucus continues to throw tantrums over McCarthy not letting the economy implode.
Sure sucks that we don’t have a Speaker of the House.

Woo-hoo! Four day weekend!
Seriously though, the government’s funded until September 30, so if they want to jerk him around for a couple months, that’s their prerogative. Not like they’d be doing anything of importance anyway.

Fox News has informed Tucker Carlson that his little premier on Twitter has him in violation of their contract. At best, this means that Fox won’t have to pay Tucker his multimillion dollar severance. At worst even more best, if they win the subsequent lawsuit it means they won’t have to pay the severance and Tucker won’t be able to continue airing on Twitter or elsewhere.
Biden has vetoed the GQP’s attempt to force student loans back onto college students.
This was a critical part of the debt ceiling package conceded by the Democrats, and Biden has reneged on it in favor of keeping his campaign promise to end student debt. Of course, Republicans failed to keep their end of the bargain to get 150 votes in favor of the debt ceiling bill in the first place so onus is on them.
This will likely be challenged by Republicans, again, and appealed up to the SCOTUS for a final ruling. But hey, good on Dark Brandon.

If Dems were serious about galvanizing voters, they’d shove it down all throats that Republicans are all about making students pay back their debts but balk at paying for the trillions they incurred last administration. Rules for thee, not for me.

The manufacturers of “forever chemicals” used in products like nonstick pans and waterproof clothing knew about the dangers their materials posed more than 40 years before the general public, according to previously secret industry documents. By following the same playbook as Big Tobacco, including suppression of their own research, the companies successfully stymied regulation for decades while the cancer-causing chemicals became ubiquitous in the water, air, and soil.
Major manufacturers are already spending billions to settle lawsuits and millions fighting federal regulations, including landmark environmental rules proposed this spring. The revealing industry documents, analyzed in a new study from researchers at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), could bolster efforts to hold the companies accountable for widespread contamination from chemicals that take hundreds of years to break down. The manufacturer 3M is reportedly preparing to pay $10 billion to settle claims that it polluted thousands of public water systems, but the cost of cleaning up the chemicals in drinking water nationwide will likely top $400 billion.
During the 1970s, a DuPont-funded laboratory carried out a series of studies to test the effects of exposure to the chemical coating Teflon. The laboratory had already established that Teflon dispersions could be highly toxic when inhaled, according to a 1970 DuPont memo. Subsequent tests found that rats exposed at low levels developed enlarged livers; dogs injected with higher ones died within two days.
But instead of reporting these findings to federal regulators, as required by law, the company adopted a communications strategy equating the toxicity of the chemicals to common table salt.
By 1980, employee surveys by DuPont and 3M found that pregnant workers exposed to the chemicals were giving birth to babies with abnormalities in their eyes and tear ducts. While assuring workers that they had discovered “no evidence of birth defects,” the company quietly removed female employees from high-exposure areas.
Best economic system we have according to basement dwellers, ladies, gentlemen and non-binary people.
