Once again, people look at it from their perspective only and completely ignore all of the ways in which something is used for others. While there is the ability to provide the same services by other mediums that can still be obtained with low-level tech, you can't remove access to it when nothing has been done to mitigate the risks of not having it in the first place.
Don't give them access to city water then. Make them carry buckets to the nearest source of fresh water. If you can't afford a service that other people are doing to provide you with something, it's on you to find other ways to survive without trying to force those people to take a loss. It's so very Atlas Shrugged...if you haven't read it, you should. Now, that's not to say there isn't ways to improve the services so the costs go down, but in this case that holds true for EVERY public service and there is not one person in this country that can say either side of the aisle has had the little man in scope when discussing government wasteful spending.
So Dems do it every single day and spend billions of taxpayer money on culture war lawsuits and legislation and not a peep. As soon as someone who isn't a Dem does it, all of a sudden it's a bad thing.
Can't make up this level of 100% verifiable and inarguable hypocrisy. I hate what he's doing to Disney because I try not to be a hypocrite and private business is private business so he shouldn't be trying to interject politics into it, just like all the clueless Reps talk about but then become hypocrites once their side is doing it. But that's still no excuse for us voters to accept the hypocrisy being done by our parties and even post comments as if you don't even recognize the hypocrisy.
Two things are known regarding the target of the reparations...they have no problem destroying each other in the name of self-serving vanity and greed, and they have no problem destroying each other's successes. Both can be evidenced by many factors, some of which are crime demographics and the BLM riots that destroyed their own peoples' businesses.
Giving them huge payouts without first providing the education and services they need to correct the behaviors that will lead them to continual self-destruction is irresponsible and foolish. Additionally, giving them those payouts without giving them financial education and tools they need first on how to manage that money just exacerbates the foolishness of this solution.
Funny, I just read an article a monthish ago about a veteran who regularly used his service in that war as his basis for living an excellent life. Cherry-picking to make a point is bad in itself, being a person who falls for it by reading an article and immediately accepting its validity as a measure of an event because it meets your platform is even worse.
"This doesn't really hold up when one side is outlawing ablution and trans, and the other side isn't doing anything like that."
This is the kind of statement that proves there is a huge problem with people who are too partisan to be objective. The fact you think Dems aren't doing things to limit freedoms and gain control, when there is ample, real-world, irrefutable evidence they are, is indicative of everything wrong with this country today. Your statement would be correct if you said, "This doesn't really hold up when one side is outlawing ablution and trans, and the other side isn't doing anything like that" and had qualified it by saying the other side isn't doing anything like that in regard to those specific topics. It still would read bad but at least it would be the truth and not some partisan statement. Dems have been trying to control free speech and free thought for most of the 21st century so far, and that isn't debatable, just like Reps have been trying to control abortion. Enough people have been fired, their lives have been ruined, etc. because of Liberals. Even in cases where someone was falsely accused, the Liberal outrage that occurred ruined that person's life.
And that's just one example. There are many, many, MANY others. Your inability to think objectively and understand that both parties are vying for control based on their prevalent opinions is harming this country, not the actual legislation itself. America is meant to change with the times so laws changing is a good thing, it's the people who refuse to see any other perspective and then making everything they don't agree with into a national emergency that is why this country is hurting.
"FOX is right-lite designed to sell advertising to people that can't stomach the left leaning sources."
I have to say, that is one heck of an accurate description of FOX. Can't stand all their ads and their catering to the companies that match their narrative.
"You are overcomplicating it. Everything is the other party's fault, all the time."
This is the way.
"US Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger on Tuesday ripped into Fox News host Tucker Carlson over his commentary about footage from the January 6, 2021, insurrection that he aired Monday night, saying the host "cherry-picked" from the footage to present "offensive" and "misleading" conclusions about the attack."
In other words, for those of you with at least a few brains cells, he did EXACTLY what Libs have done. Cherry-picking what they want the people to see in order to sway opinions. There can be no debate that's what Liberals did. And there can be no debate that is what Carlson is doing. So, both sides do the same thing and each side uses it as ammunition against the other. And the only victim is America.
How dumb and if you fall for this kind of stuff, I hope you seek help.
Well, that's how it's been in America since formal education began. So having a problem with it now only reeks of an agenda, not doing what is right.
Secondly, and this is the most serious point, we have escapees from China who have been publicly making these same types of points in this article about the damage Liberals in America are perpetuating for some years now. These are people DIRECTLY FROM COUNTRIES WITH REAL HUMAN OPPRESSION. Yet, Liberals demonize them, ignore them, etc. But Liberals LOOOOOVE talking about how great someone who has lived almost his entire life in America is when it comes to what it's like in other countries.
Godwin's Law almost always is entirely incepted by kids with very little real-world experience because they can't understand hypocrisy, which mirrors what most DR Liberals are anyways. So, it's a moot point. Hitler made it a policy to destroy historical artifacts that didn't agree with his ideology, just like Dems are doing today in America beyond any debate. Once Liberals can admit that every ideology has its faults and to not be hypocrites about it, only then can they be considered logical, educated people that should be listened to. Stop doing what Hitler did and then pointing the finger and demonizing others for doing what Hitler did. There isn't any trick to this. It's absolute common sense. Argue all you want but that doesn't change reality.
The incredibly liberal use of the word "could" in this article says everything you need to know about the bias contained within it.
Absolutely right. So, now that we've established a media outlet being a political operation, what are you going to do about the Liberal media outlets like CNN, MSNBC, etc. who are also political operations?
"Bigotry and hate are Republican tenets."
So then how do you classify all the hate coming from Democrats? What you mean to say is the hate you agree with is fine but anything you don't agree with is bad. And that, my friend, is why nothing is getting better.
And if you say that Democrats aren't spewing hate, or that their constituents themselves aren't spewing hate, then it proves you read CNN headlines and nothing else to form your opinions. And that, my friend, is ANOTHER reason why nothing is getting better (not that you only read CNN but that people like you are too egotistical to think critically, objectively, and fairly.
Yet members of the Squad harass and vilify Jews on record in front of the entire country and Libs cheer them on. I'm all for getting rid of hate...ALL kinds of hate. But, as Liberals evidence every day, they only care about hate that impacts their jobs, just like what they are accusing DeSantis of in this article.
Can't get any more stupidly conservative than going beyond wanting things to not change to changing them to something that was wrong a hundred years ago and has been phased out.
Ok, perfect! Consequences for past actions. 100% on board.
In other words, Florida is going 100% by the logic in this article. The best part is there is absolutely nothing Dems can say that doesn't further their hypocrisy. Nothing. You can try but EVERYTHING you try to counter with can be responded with the OP's article.
You want consequences? You have them. And adding context doesn't do any good because Dems have not enabled context from any of their past "consequence culture".
And many of the comments already on there ALSO lend to agreeing with consequences. There is no way out of this hypocrisy for you. None. You either agree or you are 100% hypocritical.
And I tend to agree with every one of the Dem's responses. This is stupid and silly. This takes away from concentrating on real issues. But, that hasn't stopped Dems in the past. If this is what it takes to get them to stop their "consequence culture" once and for all, then so be it.

Cherry-picking metrics has become an actual political platform for Dems. There is also peer-reviewed, substantial research that shows increasing minimum wage also increases inflation disproportionately. There's a lot of research that shows increasing salaries significantly leads to more bankruptcies and poor wealth management.
The point isn't that increasing minimum wage is bad, the point is that every decision has negatives and ignoring them only ensures that new problems grow without any solutions. So you fix one thing and 2 more bad things creep up.
"Except inflation hasn't been caused by political wage-tinkering."
There is plenty of research to show it has in the last 3 years. There are people hard at work on both sides doing research to discredit the other, and much of it is actually good research...it's just hidden by lies and falsehoods spread by those who don't agree with the results. But, by your statement, you actually believe that none of the inflation that has occurred has anything to do with politicians lobbying for increased wages. Sure, not all of it has to do with that variable in the equation but your statement goes against all logic AND past REAL, DOCUMENTED history that has occurred in cycles over and over again. In short, you are ignoring reality and minimizing problems just because you don't like that they exist. The next time you want to point a finger, just know that kind of ideology makes things a lot worse than most people you are pointing at.
