The hypocrisy of the republican party in the united states and their followers blows my mind. I get it that the democrats aren't any better but damn it's so obvious.

I read about a horse medication that people are trying to use for covid. So we have a fully cleared medical vaccine and people would rather take a horse dewormer instead?

The USA just pulled out of Afghanistan. Messy no matter who would be president. But trump and his stooges turn a blind eye that they were the ones who made the deal in the first place.

The 2nd amendment is only good as long as your a white male. Back in the early 80's California banned open carry of firearms that are loaded. The governor at the time said that any honest citizen doesn't need a loaded gun in public. The governor was Ronald Reagan. The prophet of the republican party.

Ivermectin. I am so royally pissed off about this. I have goats, and am in a state that has had way too much rain this year. The result is that parasitic worms are horrible this year. But some a** wipe decided that this livestock dewormer could cure covid. The covid is rising almost exponentially because you idiots won't get vaccinated, and you don't wear masks, because it infringes on your rights, but you want to injest a chemical you know nothing about because some uneducated influencer tells you to?
How Stupid are you people?
Meanwhile I still need to worm my goats, and 1/3 of the dewormer cocktail I give them is not available. Thank-you so much for making it impossible to take proper care of my animals. ( last sentence was Sarcasm) If I can't get rid of the worms some may very well die of anemia. It will be your fault. Grow a brain! It's too late to grow a heart.

So in each type of group project group, there's always someone blaming you for being the other type of person, if that makes sense. So you'll be in a group where the others are slacking off, but they say you're a control freak and doing all the work.

People who tailgate, especially if you are behind a vehicle going under the speed limit. Like what do you expect me to do? Push the lead car?

People standing too close at the check out. Even with the pandemic there are people who literally bump their cart into you while you are checking out.

Those who stare when a person is upset. Specifically when my mini munchkin is in meltdown mode. I'm doing my darndest to find a quite place or find the nearest exit and you staring or glaring at us is NOT helping.

Litter, especially when a trash bin is within sight of where the person dropped their trash.

People dumping animals. Nobody can predict what may happen and sometimes a person absolutely cannot keep a pet, but most vet clinics will take in a pet if a shelter is unable to do so. Animals control could put you in touch with someone who can take in a pet. They are not trash, don't treat that way.

I think cancel culture is absolute poison on multiple levels.

Instead of inviting people to an important conversation, it isolates them. At worst, the only lesson they get is that 'those people who think [popular viewpoint] are all a gang of bullies,' which just sends people back to their old ways and groups, more hateful than before. Then those bullies feel accomplished for treating someone with a different view like crap, which is no better a lesson.

In the end, it always ends up polarized into 'us vs them' which ruins any chance of discussion. There's never an option of, "I like this person but still feel they did something wrong and should learn" or "This is really abhorrent behavior but it's totally unrelated to their job." From a practical sense, whatever they are cancelled from gets screwed over - being forced to remove an employee is never helpful, and affects many people.

I think the worst example was Liam Neeson - he told a repentant story about how his racism was fueled by a tragic event and all he could blame was 'a black guy," which sent him off into a pointless blind rage. The internet quickly ignored all context and started attacking him for being a racist, completely missing the opportunity to talk about how racist thoughts are born and can be overcome, and what makes people learn and change.

The idea that someone should lose their job and never be allowed to work again because they are not progressive is contrary to the progressive idea that people can learn and change and pay their dues. Moreover, the historical digging (i.e. tweets, comments, media, products from years or even decades ago) portrays the fantasy that we should all be perfect in our pasts and should never be expected to change. The exaggerated shock and awe at 'I can't believe people from 50 years ago didn't know what I learned 3 years ago' benefits nobody.

*This is all separate from illegal behavior, which should be handled in the legal system. That system needs to develop as well, but that can only happen with constructive conversation to get support.

The cost of health care and prescriptions in the USA. I have diabetes and my medications, without insurance, would run me about $2400 per month alone (4 prescriptions.) That's not counting being required to go to my doctor every 3 months ($200 per visit with insurance $468 without) to have labs ($98 with insurance every 3 months $389 without.) At my last OB/GYN visit, I had a procedure done in the office that, upon looking at the bill, cost me $6500 for my deductible for insurance. Without it..it would have cost me $22,000.

And don't even get me started on surgeries and cancer treatments. My mother-in-law had a life threatening illness that required infusions every week. Her insurance covered all but $600 of it. Added up over the time of treatment and she spent $6000 in a matter of 10 weeks...and she passed anyway.

In the end, she wasn't sure she wanted to continue treatments because of the cost. In what kind of society to we live in where a person would rather die because the only option for living means being in poverty for the rest of your existence. A pretty crappy one. I hope all those millionaires that profit from the medical insurance and prescription companies choke on their caviar.

How can the US health system justify these costs? In Australia, when I have an appointment with my GP, it costs me $76.50 (approximately $56 US). Medicare refunds me $39.10 [approximately $29 US]. For an American to have to pay the equivalent of $273 AU (insured) or $635 AU (uninsured) for exactly the same service is nothing short of scandalous. I can stay in an Australian public hospital (usually in a 4-6 bed ward) and pay... $0. The government covers the cost of my bed, meals and medical care (by doctors and other staff employed by the hospital). If I want my own doctor, I can choose to be privately insured, and I can then be cared for in a private hospital.

1. The fact that everybody seems to feel misunderstood by society and has this intense need to talk about themselves in an effort to make others understand just "who" they are on some deep level. It's like everyone sees themselves as important or intelligent or philosophic or prophetic or something and feels like "everyone will finally realize it" if they can just talk about themselves until they're blue in the face. Coincidentally, everyone these days is also simultaneously terrible at listening to / caring about other people and - if they do "listen" - it's usually obvious that they're just waiting for the person to shut up so they can go on talking about themselves. Everyone wants to talk, no one wants to listen. It's both comical and sad.

2. The term "influencer" and ESPECIALLY anyone who refers to themselves as an "influencer". It's like someone referring to themselves as "the most popular kid in school." Well, sorry, but while you might have been interesting a second ago, your ego inevitably makes my mind say "go f**k yourself" and I will pretend like you dont exist forevermore.

Just basically how the UK government ... and all the ones for at least the last 30yrs has failed in terms of educating children. I learnt very early on in my girl's development that the school system was going to teach her jack s**t. I'd be astounded when I'd ask her stuff like basic stuff when she was at various stages and she'd be saying 'i don't know...... we've not done that yet', when i knew for damn sure we'd already covered that already when i was her age in it. Through no fault of our own our kids are turning out more specialised, but in general terms pretty thick in terms of broad knowledge.

Just realised I forgot to add it in the description.

Subscriptions. I do want to read a news story, but if I have to pay $30 (HKD) just to read some dumb article about cats bumping into walls, then no.

There are a lot of other things too.


Apple updates. They take so long, and the actual thing that results is something useless! Assistivetouch just makes it harder for me to do anything on my phone, and MacOS Big Sur- well… it’s actually the login screen that aggravated me. I can’t change it, but it just… it takes so much of my willpower not to smash my computer to the ground.

My SIM card. The data thing, you know? It has 50GB in it, and even though it’s prepaid, it expires after one month. MAKE UP UR MINDS YOU STUPID CU@$S! And then, after all that, my SIM card expires 120 days after activation! That means that my phone number will change in 3 months! I hate you so much!

Phone cases. I have one that is filled with water and glitter. It’s a time bomb waiting to break my phone.

Spam callers. I live in Hong Kong. Usually the callers talk in super fast Cantonese, and the second they get any hint that you don’t know Cantonese, they immediately hang up. It’s wasting all of my data. I only get a few hours of phone call per month, and those f$@&ing cu&ts waste so much of it.

Ads. Maybe they’re a great way to spread word around, but they cover up so much stuff. Public transport in Hong Kong is covered up by all of it. The buses are supposed to be painted a nice pattern, but it all gets covered up!

Also, BTW, kids thinking real life violence is okay due to violent video games ISN'T ACTUALLY A REAL THING. We're legitimately not tricked by the advertisement with dramatic music and cool-looking images because at the end it says "join the US army." It's so completely utterly different.

How people and companies treat people with disabilities. When I was looking for a job I would get to the final stage of the interview and be a total shoe in for the job and then as soon as they learned about my disability it was all “Sorry but you’re not what we’re looking for”. Just because some people are either born different or have had a serious health condition does not mean that they can’t do any job. Because of this the only job I could get is a very physically demanding job which isn’t actually good for me and is causing my health and body to suffer.

I want to take a moment to talk about how people use eachother, coming from my own personal experience. I've lost count at how many people I have helped but I like doing it. I enjoy seeing the smile on my friends faces and detecting they are happy makes me happy too. I'm emotionally sensitive which means when I feel an emotion, I too get that emotion. However of all the times I have helped and repeated helping people, when it came time to help me with my issues, none of them wanted to know saying how they had no time to help me because they were so busy and that nothing they would do would help so why bother? It's like, Thanks guys. Means a lot you all just abandoned me in my time of need

And what the hell is up with jobs refusing me because I am autistic anyway? I never got the help I needed in school so some of my grades are high up and other way down and I was constantly bullied for being different. And now the Adult world does this too? Just what the hell was I looking forward to when I left school behind?

Because of people doing these things to me, I have depression, Anxiety, Psychosis and suicidal thoughts. Finding a therapist is hard as well. No one should ever say "Get over it" or "It's not that bad". What does that even fix? Put in some effort once in a while or even just a minute of thought and the world would be a far better place for everyone

Ultimately, what I've always wanted is for people to see me for who I am instead of what i am and to show the level of care I gave to others. I never asked much but why do people always hurt you when you try and reach out for help?

New topic: Racism and Sexism. What the hell happened there? Who the hell says people are worth more than others because they are white males? As a white male myself, I can say with perfect clarity That being a woman or being of a different ethnicity means absolutely nothing. Everyone is equal in that regard so why can't we act like it?

New topic: Twitter. Twitter twitter twitter. What the hell is wrong with you? You can't go 5 seconds without being so damned toxic, you push away everyone new and form hate groups for every opinion different from your own. Sure it's nice to have people who have the same opinions as you but that's no excuse to shut everyone else down

Antivaxxers and people like them. I don't even know where to begin. What on earth made you think things like Vaccines cause Autism or that they are chipped and Bill gates can read your mind? If anything, Autistics make up a good number of the worlds greatest minds and scientists who are alive today. Doesn't this mean that Autism causes vaccines? Abd if Bill Gates wants to read my mind, go right ahead. He might even find a new hobby to invest his free time in while he's in there

Only going to comment on the job search. After college I was looking for a job. My degree was in art, but you can't just immediately start making money with it. So I needed to support myself. Had a decent resume from job I had had before. But wasn't getting call backs. Finally 1 place came through. Manager was from my home state, which I think was why he called me in for an interview. He asked me point blank. You have a college degree, why do you want to work in a factory? My answer wad simple. Because I have bills to pay! Rent, utilities, groceries etc. I got the job. Which then led to a better job, and then a better job. Dont give up!

When dogs die in movies/books/TV shows for NO REASON. Look, I get it when it's important for the plot or something, but I read this one book where the main girl got a dog which got hit by a car literally three pages later. It then wasn't mentioned for the rest of the book! It especially hurts now, because my
best friend's dog died after she'd only had it for a week. It's just pointless misery!

Oooh boy, Young Adult paranormal romance novels. Specifically the ones where the girl finds out she’s special or different and then has to choose between two boys. One is a silent, cold withdrawn type and the other is a dark, rugged passionate type. She always picks the one who treats her the worst. It’s no wonder that more and more young girls are getting into abusive relationships because they read this trash and think that it’s ok. It does my head in. I just want to read a paranormal genre book without reading this three way tripe.
Another one is unwanted and unwelcome parenting advice. Specifically when mums give you advice that is supposedly well meaning. I just had one woman tell me I should be doing baby led weaning with my 6 month old. Umm isn’t all weaning baby led? It’s not exactly like I can force him to eat things he doesn’t want to. I’ve also had people come up to me when my 3 year old with asd is having a meltdown giving me advice about how I’m not disciplining him enough or how he needs to stop being so spoilt. He’s the most loving, intelligent and awesome kid. Just because he gets overwhelmed does not make him a bad child. You coming over when he’s mid meltdown and trying to self harm is just making the situation even worse.
Ok rant over for now.

Bro I wanna rant about my friends. Like... I dunno, is it just me? Why do I keep getting left out by these people? (I mean, really just two people but still...) One is related to me, we've been friends since they were born and I was 1. Basically 17 years now. The other is a pretty new friend that I met 2, 3 years ago — but they're through that first friend.
Idk if it's my family issues (another thing I'd prolly like to rant about), but I've been desperate for social interaction and they keep denying me... And hanging out with each other. And telling me about it when I've already said I'm going through tough times, I don't need them to rub it in my face.

Sooo my school- where do I start?

The worst thing isn't even the boring classes or that. It is the fact that they are currently rebuilding the entire roof and floor under that. And almost everything else, but yeah, that's the main thing. It's loud the entire time, I can't understand what the teachers say sometimes and mostly I'm just afraid that THE F*****G ROOF WILL COLLAPSE OVER MY HEAD. And let me tell you about all the times I thought it was close.
-before summer, when they dropped something above us and it was so loud we thought it was directly above us
-this year, same thing, but the floor actually shook x3
-when my teacher was sitting on her chair, they drilled and a tiny bit stuff came down(at that point we could just hear it) , she stood up and moved aside and a bit ceiling broke of on her chair, together with a good pile of drill material

that was it by now, and we are moving room now because it is too loud all of a sudden. IT WAS THAT FOR THE ENTIRETY OF THE SCHOOL YEAR BUT NOW IT IS TOO MUCH?? yeah so thats why I hate going to school

It's not breastfeeding that's the problem. It's women who make it a spectator sport and then freak out if you have a problem with their exhibitionist streak. Also, that same pair of sweater puppies that helped attract the man who put that baby in you have magically gone from dude magnets/ free drink generators to "OMG I'm NOURISHING my CHILD, how DARE you stare at me!!" It is that attitudinal switch-- not to mention how harshly it's utilized-- that is the problem. Intelligent people comprehend the difference between the two issues.

there are a few different topics i could go off on but i will stick to somethink kind of general as it encompasses much of my 'triggers": education. we have done a disservice to our youth in our current educational curriculums. first, we took out 'home ec' classes and, at least when i was in school, those were limited to only girls. now, it is known in some areas as 'food science' which teaches basically how to read a recipe and that's it. at the same time, shop classes...wood, metal, auto, etc...were restricted to boys only. those classes taught basic life skills. also, general type classes such as math and english, both of which haven't really changed with the exception of how 'formal' writing has been modified to be more acceptable. school districts have changed things such as 'adverbs' to 'helping verbs'...wtf? why? also, not to mention the expense of new text books that contain basically the same info but, for the sake of profit and/or acknowledgment of the authors, have been replaced by new books or, worse, printed copies which do not allow for a book for reference. there is something reinforcing in having to copy out a problem on to paper and working the problem. this may seem insignificant but was the basis of education for literally decades. then, moving onto history, there have been districts that have allowed for part of history to be removed from the curriculum because 'they don't have the time'. again, wtf? we learned ancient/world history as well as american history with no problem...and, i was fortunate to have had the benefit of history that included what is now considered the basis of 'cancel culture'. nope - it's just history as all inclusive...the good parts we were involved with as well as the parts that embarass us and wish we wouldn't have done. it's still history. so, i'll put my soap box away for now

The Australian federal government diverting tax-payer funds to catholic schools.

Slightly over 13billion (this year) has been specifically spent on catholic schools - with just under 9 billion for public schools. Public schools have approximately 67% of all students nation wide, with private schools having the other 33%.

This is in addition to the school chaplaincy program - which directly places unqualified religious extremists, to provide "pastoral care" (which i believe is a euphemism for child abuse) in severely underfunded public schools.

The kicker here is that the elitists created by the over-funding of private schools are the same people that moan about a lack of skilled labour... the skilled labour that they are specifically going out of their way to ensure cannot be cultivated by anyone that is not already part of socio-economic upper class.

I have a theory, of course untested because I'm just a driver, but here goes... When you see a sign that warns you of lanes being reduced, or speed , whatever, then stsrt changing lanes then. Don't wait until the ladt minute to try and jockey into position. Left lane clised in 2 miles? Get out of the left lane then while trafgic is more sparse. Slow down when told to do it. I believe that if people just acted as soon as safely possible the traffic would smoothly transition through the lane closings and you woulsmd be through it faster. But that would take be a generous driver and not a being a road hog. So never mind.

Motorcycles don’t need to be so loud either,it’s mostly added sound effects. There are many such vehicles in my gym parking lot and for some reason the drivers make several circuits around the parking lot before deciding to park.

Single-lane street where two cars can’t fit past each other so one has to pull in behind a parked car to let the car approaching from the other direction pass and that bastard does but acknowledge you with a thank you wave or an extended index finger - that really jerks my chain!

Dammit, I made errors in that post and evidently you can’t edit your posts. FWIW, I meant to say ‘does not acknowledge you’

Curated? Meaning you delete what you don't agree with.

Being a teacher in my country in with the new generation...

I have been teaching a few years and I absolutely love my job!!!

That being said the arrogance, disrespect and general apathy from both learners and their parents is mindbogglingly and really kills the motivation to try and help students...

Not to mention getting threatened by n student and called all kinds of things to have the same behaviour repeated when the parents are called...

What happened to basic human decency

People try to express their words and use multiple consanants instead of multiple vowels. ie: the day is beauttttiful. S/B the day is beauuuuuuuuuuutiful.

Effect means to impact, Affect means the impact. Effective means creates a lot of affect and affective is stupid and means to emotionally impact. So effect means to cause affect. Effective is a different use of the word effect, but also a qualitatively good and like effect, but lots of it. And Affective! Is hardly f*****g related to the rest of the words

This is the opposite of correct. Affect is a verb. Effect is a noun. Effective is an adjective. Affective is a term related to psychology.

Anything about Socialism. I am basically arguing against every left-wing policy here. Please debate me, so I can change my arguments. Above all, be respectful. We're only disagreeing about economics here.

1. Universal Basic Healthcare
This is a horrible idea. If people don't have to work, they won't work.
"But if we make working conditions better, people would want to work!"
Maybe you can 'improve conditions'. However, how in the world are you supposed to make work fun?

Improve conditions all you like, janitors still have to clean poop, police officers still get shot at, teachers still have to prepare classes, doctors still perform exhausting surgeries, firefighters still rush into burning buildings, etc.

Ask yourself: no matter how much you can 'improve conditions', would you still rather work than play video games, read, draw, walk at the park, watch movies, hike, etc?

2. Universal Healthcare
How would you fund this? Taxes. Who pays the taxes? Everyone. What if someone doesn't want to pay because they don't need the services (they're really healthy people that rarely see the doctor)? The government goes up and points a gun at his head.

I am fine with paying for some services because I like and need them. However, you're forcing me to pay (through taxes) for healthcare I do not need. Change the system all you want. Just don't increase taxes.

3. Regulation
I agree with most of you when you say that corporations are too powerful. However, my answer to limiting their power lies in LOWERING regulations, as regulations cause a practice known as rent-seeking.

When the government wields power over the economy, companies will seek to weild this power. They will manipulate regulations and licenses to prevent competition and to hurt competitors.

For example, Amazon is trying to create an internet sales tax to hurt eBay. The AMA has for a long time tried to make obtaining medical licenses harder, stifling competition and giving themselves monopoly prices. Regulations make it cost about 1 billion to bring a new drug onto the market. Why? Because the big pharma doesn't want the new competition.

Lowering regulations will force big companies to compete fairly, and not through market manipilution. This will obviously drive down costs and drive up quality, which in and of itself could be a solution to the horrible healthcare in the US.

4. Minimum Wage.
There are many alternatives to increasing wages, such as resigning, striking, and unionizing.

The minimum Wage also hurts the employees as well. Let's say you're a janitor. The government makes a minimum wage of 1,000,000 for all janitors. This won't turn ANY janitors into a millionaire. It will get every single janitor fired overnight, and create a black market in janitorial services.

Let's also pretend you're an unskilled worker at Amazon. Then, the government makes you get paid as much as a neurosurgeon. The Amazon Execs will think, "Hey, we're paying them as much as a neurosurgeon, when they are not even NEAR that value. What's the point in keeping them? Let's just fire them all and hire actually skilled people who are worth the money."

5. Tax the Rich
Now, I am not against taxing the rich. However, I am saying that it won't work. Whenever taxes increase, the rich take all their money, assets, and Jobs away from this economy and to another country.

One example is Sweden in the 1970s, when they massively increased taxes of all kinds. What happened? Every single rich person, including Bjorn Borg the tennis player, the founder of Ikea, and a movie director, they all left. In the end, Sweden was begging for them to come back.

Another example is closer to home. The US Congress decided to tax yacht sales. What happened? The rich stopped buying yachts overnight. The industry got annihilated, losing 90% of its revenue. 30 years later, they still haven't recovered.

This is a challenge to all those 'socialists' on BP. Please respectfully debate me here.

1. I think you meant Universal Basic Income. This was not meant to pull everyone up to middle class or beyond; it wouldbe enough to survive on. People would still work to have a higher standard of living. Want wine instead of water? Work. If you have no skills, the janitor job is still available. 2. No one needs health are ...until they do. Think of it as insurance if you need the emergency room. find an unexpected lump. Also your healthy years of payment yet services not-needed, will counter-balance your eldery years where you would need more services. You are thinking short-term only. 3. I don't know enough about this or have read anything on it. 4. You examples are too extreme. No one is making millionaires of janitors - If you raise a salary to 11.00/hour from the 7.25 it currently is, you are not making as much as a neurosurgeon. The minimum wage has not kept up with inflation. It needs to rather than have people further dependent on social services.
