Good line, I like it.
@Latecomer
I think thousands less dead, no wars, no drastic curtailing of rights directly resulting from the event, is better.

In response to the $50k a day fine Cyber Ninjas has shut down and disbanded. A clear attempt to evade said fines.
So clear in fact that the judge said no, the fines will still be leveled on the individuals regardless.

Oh and the best part is the judge was notified by Cyber Ninjas’ lawyer, who afterwards gave his resignation on account of them not paying him. So now they are without legal representation, and will be unlikely to find one to help them challenge or issue any lawsuit since future lawyers know they won’t get paid.
Cyber Ninjas grift has come to bite them hard.

Oh I wish that were true, but unfortunately they’re already using the Jan 6th thing to push for an even bigger national security apparatus…which is going to be bad for everyone when the wrong person gets in power and uses it to do terrible things. It’s why I despise the liberal fantasy that “they will always remain in power, so whatever excessive powers the government has will be used justly.”

@Ebalosus
I said less, not none, so still right - for now at least.
(And tying your own hands has it’s downsides too. Not like bad guys usually need an invitation to go beyond the rules.)

So, the three men in the Arbery Murder Case are facing Life in Prison. Two of the three men, Travis McMicheal and his father Gregory McMicheal are sentenced to Life in Prison without parole, while William “Roddie” Bryan is facing Life in Prison with the possibility of parole 30 years from now.

Speaking of dictatorships and fake democracies…
Why haven’t Xi Jinping and Kim Jong-un said something to the effect of “fuck this charade,” and crowned themselves emperor? I mean they may as well at this point with no check and balance against their power.

You said it yourself: it’s all about appearances. It’s for the same reason Putin is in no hurry to abolish the so-called Russian democracy to proclaim himself czar, despite being one in all but name.
Napoleon tried to pull that shit back then and ended up crushed by the rest of Europe in barely ten years. Bokassa did the same in Central Africa in the 70s, it took him less than three to get overthrown.

According to three people with direct knowledge of the matter, the twice-impeached former president has noticed the emotional accounts, particularly that from Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Some he has found annoying. Others, however, have become targets of mockery and casual hilarity for him.
In several conversations with close allies over the past 12 months, Trump has repeatedly made fun of the idea that certain legislators, police, or journalists were traumatized by the violent events of the day, according to these sources. There are moments when the ex-president has speculated that his critics are “faking” their trauma and anxiety, for attention. Other times, he’s done poor, whining impersonations of perceived enemy lawmakers crying about the riot.
Trump’s callousness toward his real and perceived enemies, no matter the level of trauma inflicted, is standard fare for Trump: a man who built much of his political legacy and appeal by demagoguing and viciously smearing those who speak out against him. For example, despite his frequent claims about “backing the blue,” Trump privately referred to some of the police officers who were at the Capitol that day as “pussies, The Daily Beast previously reported.
Lock him up and throw away the key. Let the last public photo of this monster be him crying like the bitch he is as he’s driven away in the back of a police car.

ANARCHY
@Dustcan
Let’s be real though. That probably won’t ever happen.
The GOP have their heads too far up their own assholes to ever admit that “Hey, Trump’s kind of a nazi!” And he’ll probably be the main Republican candidate for president again in 2024, because Conservatives eat up all the neo-nazi rhetoric that the little bitch shoots out on a near constant basis.
So yeah, whether we like it or not, we’re f###ed.

I’d dispute this. Dictatorships collapse all the time. New democracies are vulnerable when there’s no previous democratic tradition, but established democracies tend to be more stable than dictatorships.

Because it pleased the Western world to keep him around as a counterweight to Iran. They could have wiped him off the map at any time; look how quickly he got bounced from Kuwait in Desert Storm.
That’s the key to survival, as a democracy or a dictatorship: don’t piss off the people who could take you out. And there will always be people who can take you out.

“LOL, the south is so racist/homophobic, not like up north!”.
The only difference between rural Georgia and rural New York is geography. Pretty much every state outside of the cities is deep red.

Well, yeah. When you have to travel 20 miles to meet your next door neighbor there’s very little opportunity to have your prejudices challenged.
Compare that to states and/or counties that actually have a population, where socialization is possible, and people realize quick “Oh hey people don’t suck. Who knew?”
