"They only build luxury housing!"

Well yeah have you seen land, labor and materials costs for city centre development sites?

Zoning reform

Developers would love to build more, but zoning often makes it unprofitable and thus impossible

Get rid of height restrictions, get rid of minimum parking spaces, and get rid of backyard size requirements

That alone would cause a boom in construction

And down the line, luxury housing stops being luxurious. You need that churn.

Yeah pretty much.

Imagine if they were sending their best!

Finally an African country wins the World Cup!

After all the Twitter racism regarding the French team's "African roots", it was refreshing to see them win!

My favorite photos of Macron during the World Cup.

I thought this was WSB for a sec

Can’t be, the caption says gains not losses.

Do you also swallow the mic at the end of your monologue to make your point more emphatic?

I was so sure this was WSB until I saw this comment.

It honestly would fit better there.

Sorry Bernie Bros But Nordic Countries Are Not Socialist

Sorry Bernie Bros But Nordic Countries Are Not Socialist

Hot take: The Bernie crowd are socialists in the same way that we are neoliberals. People on the right have for a long time called anything that looks like a welfare state socialism, so now the left have embraced the label, like we have embraced neoliberalism, without actually being socialists

Breaking news: Most American socialists are actually Social Democrats. More at 8. In other news, Scientists discover water is wet. Later, is the Pope Catholic? The answer may surprise you.

I just want people to have healthcare honey

Their model is literally called Nordic capitalism. I don't even know why this is still being debated and articles written about it.

A robust welfare state with an expansive safety net and strong labour laws a socialist economy does not make.

"In the context of the Nordic model "social democracy" refers to a set of policies for promoting economic security and opportunity within the framework of capitalism rather than a replacement for capitalism."

"Rapefugees Are Destroying Germany"

"Rapefugees Are Destroying Germany"
A - -

Top quote is about crime (down = good)

Middle quote is about unemployment (down = good)

Graph is GDP (up = good)

Overall, the image is jumbled and confusing. Plus the super-sexy woman distracts from economic fundamentals. I give your meme the worst grade imaginable:

Also, ever notice that the right only cares about rape if it's Muslims doing it? Otherwise it's all "stupid SJW feminazis trying to ruin men's lives"

It’s almost as if the far right doesn’t care about rape or the women involved and are just trying to politicize it and use it as a tool

[x] booming economy

[x] lowest crime rate in decades

[ ] doing well in the WC

not worth it, rapefugees are destroying German culture

The biggest myth in this sub is that you can use logic to change people's political views. We can celebrate "trapping" Donald fans, but most of them don't give a shit about being logically coherent.

/u/Kaliyugaz has a similar take to this.

i dont know weeb shit

It's always about race. No matter what they try to dress it up as, there's an "other" and hating the other is integral to their identity.

You can't convince people who browse The_Donald online, but you can convince apolitical people.

England is connected to the continent now.

Just as it should be.

McMahon falling out of seat: Me when I realized that Ireland is connected to West Scotland

That's where all the nationalists were dumped to live in their fake reality. Sorry Borneo.

Boris Johnson resigns as foreign secretary

Boris Johnson resigns as foreign secretary

It’s almost as if representative democracies shouldn’t delegate incredibly complex economic decisions to a popular vote...

And maybe it’s a bad idea to continue down a path decided by a thin margin, with low voter turn out, now believed to have been influenced by bad actors.

I ate all my popcorn last night.

Shit.

Brexit is a shit idea

FTFY

Johnson is an oaf and a hard brexit is a shit idea
