US inmates stage nationwide prison labor strike over 'modern slavery'

US inmates stage nationwide prison labor strike over 'modern slavery'

Organizers have put together a list of 10 national demands. They include improved prison conditions, an end to life without parole sentences or “death by incarceration” as the authors call them

If you end life without parole you end up with one of two situations.

1.) Death sentence becomes far more common and we're left with an even larger issue.

2.) People that have absolutely no business being a member of modern society have reduced sentences and are reintroduced to a population that shuns them for the rest of their lives, likely resulting in the felon returning to old habits and ending right back up in prison.

Life without parole is a necessity in today's world, like it or not. Some crimes are unforgivable and you lose your rights as a human being.

Netflix Shows Commercials, Claims They're Not Commercials

Netflix Shows Commercials, Claims They're Not Commercials

I will immediately cancel my sub if i begin seeing commercials on the platform.

Netflix was my answer to avoiding a corporate pipeline of nonsense bombarding me in my home. There's nothing on Netflix that I want to watch bad enough for me to deal with advertisements.

Just like radio stations advertising themselves every 3rd song while they claim you're in the middle of a commercial free hour.

“You’re listening to a commercial free hour brought to you by <corporate sponsor>”

I've been finding it tougher and tougher to find shows I like on there anyway.

#MeToo activist Asia Argento settled a sexual assault complaint against her, report says

#MeToo activist Asia Argento settled a sexual assault complaint against her, report says

Surprise surprise. Women can commit crimes of sexual violence as well. #equality!

/s

I don't think she understood what #MeToo meant.

Good. The #MeToo activism is about trying to decrease ALL types of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and rape. This includes when women sexually assault men.

She was paid to offer you samples man. It’s fucking Costco.

Men Are More Satisfied By ‘Bromances’ Than Their Romantic Relationships, Study Says

Men Are More Satisfied By ‘Bromances’ Than Their Romantic Relationships, Study Says

Men in the study sometimes referred to their girlfriends using sexist or disdainful language, they wrote, and demonstrated an “us and them” mentality that suggested allegiance to their “bros” over their romantic partners.

That's a long way of saying "bros over hos" lol.

They conducted "semi structured interviews" with only 30 men. This isn't scientific at all. Time Magazine is kind of a joke now.

I think the fact that all parties surveyed were in a sports related major in college, and were still young men, has a significant impact. Sports fosters comradery with teammates. Your teammates are usually all the same gender. You become accustomed to developing relationships with your teammates who become your friends. You've experienced defeat and triumph together and you build significant bonds. With these experiences and the relatively young age of those surveyed, I don't think these findings are a revelation exactly.

I also believe that friendships take significantly less work to maintain than a romantic relationship, in both you have obligations to each other, but the nature of the obligations are different, which they touch on in the article.

The most surprising thing in the article is that 29 of these Bros stated they cuddled another bro.

I really dont get that attitude. Theres a whole culture of "my girlfriend is a bitch" that I dont get - like just dont have a girlfriend if it's so shitty

Now this is 18 times better than nazi-punching! "I'm not even mad son, I'm just disappointed."

"I'm stuck in a situation where I have to stay with my family, cause I'm paying all these lawsuits..."

Well heck, eh! If only you weren't some kind of white supremacist jerk in the first place, you wouldn't be in this situation ya hoser!

Gonna need some sources there, bud.

Not all white supremacists have reasonable parents.

Satanic Temple statue unveiled at the Arkansas State Capitol

Satanic Temple statue unveiled at the Arkansas State Capitol

The Religious Right did this to themselves. I'm not sure why they can't understand that the Constitution doesn't just apply to them. Imagine the shitfit they're going to throw when a secular Baker refuses to make little Matthew's baptism dessert.

That is a beautiful fucking statue.

Not a satanic, or religious person for that matter. If a religious statue is allowed to be displayed, then all religious statues should be displayed.

Equality and all that jazz

Credit where credit's due. Vigilantes are toppling their statues because they supposedly mean something different than when it was "heritage," but here's a literal fucking Baphomet erected on the state ground of the bible belt.

Unacceptable, she needs to be removed.

I told her she had painted her eyebrows too high. She looked surprised.

Can we now have a serious discussion about racism and how it's not just white men?

I already know the answer...

Yes, just like that.

He also claimed that gay marriage could lead to incest, and that discrimination against gay people may not exist because “our gay friends have incomes that are much higher than the median.”

I'm guessing he just made that shit up. Because that sounds 100% made up.

CNN’s KFile obtained 15 months of audio in which Lewis laments not being able to call women “sluts”, stating that “it used to be that women were held to a little bit of a higher standard. We required modesty from women. Now, are we beyond those days where a woman can behave as a slut, but you can’t call her a slut?”

In the audio recordings, Lewis also argues that women vote for Democrats because they are “guided by emotion not reason” and do not understand economics. He also suggests that young women who vote based on birth control coverage are not human beings and do not have a brain.

I'm sure those comments will go over smoothly. /s

I don't know the context of the quote, but like, getting paid less isn't the only form of discrimination. Even if what he said was true (which it isn't) that still don't mean no discrimination exists.

I hope he gets raped... in the polls.
