    That's the kind of post I wouldn't even put in the random section, you could bind it on your favorite hotkeys!

    Woo new election time for England time to pick between a bunch of fucking idiots and a bunch of fucking assholes.

    Think like a mini US election but with less threatening war against Russia and more choice between having workers rights get fucked or national security get fucked.

    I don't want the Tories to win but they're gonna take it by a landslide. Labour is fucked, >LibDems, people have been losing faith in SNP and the Green Party is... well the Green Party.

    Oh yeah I forgot UKIP exist lol I'm sure they'll win a seat.

    Can't wait for 18-24 year olds who didn't vote to protest when the Conservatives win, again.

    The trouble is who else do we reasonably have?

    I don't want the tories again either but Corbin is a fucking nutjob and I can't trust the lib dems anymore after the coalition.

    Really the protests would be justified if they were just done under the banner of all 3 major partys being shit.

    It's like the US election lite, our supposed wildcard is less offensive and our business cronies are slightly less crooked but we're still voting on the amount of lube we get assfucked with rather than having an option which doesn't involve getting fucked over.

    It's the first time since I was able to vote that I'm actually considering not voting simply because I can't find a candidate I don't hate.
    “It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so ****ing what."

    One day, ElderGOD, you must realize that your only hope is to regurgitate until you're blue in the face. People have troubles with both research AND attention span. It may just be easier to grab links of your own posts and save 'em somewhere to copy/paste whenever someone insists upon your regurgitation.

    Admittedly, that'll only then cause them to respond, almost verbatim, with whatever the posts that followed did, thus you'll also need the responses you made to them originally also on-hand to regurgitate THEM, as with the above postulation, they will be unable to bother with the chain of discussion that follows and instead continue with the same rhetoric.

    Some people are too dumb and not worth repeating stuff to.

    When you take the time to present someone with facts and all they can do is skip all the facts and only read the last line then they are too ignorant to further respond to.

    Let the ignorant close their eyes and stick their head in the sand if it helps them sleep at night.

    Many people just want to remain in their liberal echo chamber.

    God forbid they leave their safety space and delve into a fragment of truth:

    I have little faith in that North Korea would be desperate enough to strike against the US first. I mean, cult of personality and dictatorship aside, they DO realize that in case of an all-out war against basically any other modern country they will get wiped out completely, right?

    The intelligent thing for Trump to do would be to have a private meeting with Kim and strike a deal to have him secretly start selling out the people pulling the strings while having Kim still continuing to make threats to stay consistent and not suspicious.

    And why would Kim do that? What benefit is there to him to strike a deak with the enemy of the state?

    This is looking more like An Elephant and Moska with each passing day, with NK being the Moska in this case

    You're looking at NK by itself, that's why it makes no sense to you.

    Think of NK as just a pawn, it will make more sense.

    Look at what is happening in this country and others with all of this anti-Russia anti-Syria propaganda to force war against Russia, Syria, China, etc. NK is another pawn being used as bait.

    Attacking NK would be falling for the bait.

    The intelligent thing for Trump to do would be to have a private meeting with Kim and strike a deal to have him secretly start selling out the people pulling the strings while having Kim still continuing to make threats to stay consistent and not suspicious.

    People like Salman of Saudi Arabia and Soros should start getting exposed.

    It's too bad that people didn't want to follow all the bread crumbs that the Clintons and Obama left behind, you would get to see how deep the rabbit hole really goes.

    Now I'm really curious, please enlighten us with your knowledge about the war in Syria, the anti-Syria propaganda.
    Please. Or at least tell me. ELI5

    Everything that's happening in Syria right now is being done for two simple purposes - one is the removal of a strong leader (was was the case with Ghaddafi in Lybia), so that the country would turn into a terrorist incubator, which would then give the US a reason to start a yet another war (as well as claiming whatever resources the country has, which is mostly oil, since the Middle east is so rich with it and there's still a lot of unexplored ground)

    Second is since Putin and Assad are friends, attacking Assad (and his removal from power) would be a big attempt to provoke Russia either openly (by angering Putin), or through an accident (like if the US troops hit the RU troops in the area, or if Hillary succeesed in establishing a no-fly zone and a Russian jet would get shot down, think when same scenario happened between Turkey and Russia but Putin and Erdogan are smart enough to not chew the bait and worked things out with each other)

    It's all to spike a bigger war, a global one, one that would expand beyond what is happening in Syria right now (with all the shots and blaming about civillian strikes or chemical attacks or whatever), and which would involve more and more parties as it went by

    I.E. it'd be US vs RU, China would join RU, NATO would join US, and boom you've got World War III right there

    The question is who would benefit from wiping out basically half of humanity and making most of Earth's surface unfit for living after all the destructio and possible Nuclear fallouts

    The us should not want to take nk as that would lead to so much money being drained into a money pit

    It is why china doesn't wreck shit in nk, but fat kim is proving to be a wildcard and a liability. The best hope is china pushing a regime change and making nk into a cuban resort style area.

    Like that would be best case, but it depends on what trump would offer china in exchange.

    Trump being wildcard is also why it is a slipper slope

    Sooo looks like it's gonna be the run-off between Macron and Le Pen in France.
    (Some) People already urging their followers to vote against Le Pen, let's wait and see how close that one will actually be.

    Obama and Hillary interfering in the French election to support Macron and to sabotage Le Pen is proof enough that people shouldn't vote for Macron but France is so brainwashed I wouldn't be surprised if Macron wins.

    Then again, interfering in elections and blaming others for something he does is not uncommon for the holy Democrat Obama:

    Le Pen is France's last change, if she loses then they have lost their nation forever. Might as well empty the Louvre while it is still possible to save the great works.

    I guess there's quite the chance for that to happen no matter who's gonna win. :f

    Le Pen is just too extreme for some (conservatives, center-right, yaddayadda), so they endorse Macron for the 2nd round in two weeks.
    But the results are still only the projected ones so far, will take some time for the real ones.
    Far left, far right and a centrist making up 60-70% of the votes, quite the ride.
    I just really, really don't expect Le Pen to have great chances in the 2nd round, far right against center/left...

    [e] Oh, Fillon already endorsed Macron?

    Where did I say that? Macron is a centrist.
    Fillon and Hamon already called their supporters to back him up.

    She's certainly less right compared to others, claims herself to be for all people, not really that different from Fillon. The FN got more tame under her.
    Le Pen has some good points for sure, the FN itself is still a no-go for many people remembering her father or the holocaust denier last month etc.pp
    The one thing from Le Pen I really don't like is her idea about favouritism, but guess that's just me.

    People just make sure that the FN won't win, like 15 years ago. Maybe.
    I'd expect her to get ~40%, him to gain more from the others' votes, but well.
    Whatever the results may be, hopefull it'll help the others recognizing some major concerns...

    Le Pen oppisition won't recognize those concerns ever. You should already know this, because had they recognized these concerns and done something about it, Le Pen would b a non candinate

    I don't know. These mother fuckers in france rioted because they were going to take away mandatory vacation time.

    Le Pen isn't targeting gibemedats, she's targeting rampant bullshit regarding immigration and the disruption to rightful french hegemony and cultural dominance within France. The entire issue is that she's Nazi light (which doesn't mean shit now in days, way to normalize racism libshits)

    Was more thinking about it in general and the situation in the EU.
    After the votes in the Netherlands, Austria, Brexit, France etc. you'd think politicians miiiight get the idea. They probably won't.
    Because integration and education works so well, hooray Islamism.

    Would've preferred Fillon myself, was surprised that he still got the amount of votes yesterday.

    I just checked and you're correct, though I thought William was next in line too, really not sure where that line of thought came from.

    Actually they do. A bill do not pass on to law until the queen signs it onto law. The queen can fire all of Parliament for the UK, Canada and Australia and appoint new people for the position. She done this before recently with Australia when they would not balance their budget. The taxes are "her" money and not the state's, and it's her military. The queen just nolonger make the laws and she does not do the day to day running of the country. And half of parliament is not elected, they inherit their seat from their families.

    It wouldn't matter if one of the Queen's dogs was next in line tbh, the royals do not run Britain.

    Actually they do. A bill do not pass on to law until the queen signs it onto law. The queen can fire all of Parliament for the UK, Canada and Australia and appoint new people for the position. She done this before recently with Australia when they would not balance their budget. The taxes are "her" money and not the state's, and it's her military. The queen just nolonger make the laws and she does not do the day to day running of the country. And half of parliament is not elected, they inherit their seat from their families.

    The Queen doesn't do shit. The Queen fired nobody - Turnbull called for a double dissolution election. The PM must ask for the dissolution, which is then approved by the GG.

    The power to dissolve Parliament lies with the Governor General, and is separate​ from his existing duties as the Queen's representative.

    The same lies with signing bills into law - this is done by the GG, and they do not need to consult with the monarch.
