I know that it's probably just some combination of A. His sugar daddies want cheap labor and B. Democrats are leaning onto border controls so now he has to be contrarian, but you know what, if this gets republicans to embrace positive immigration reform, I'm here for it.

Still not voting for him though.

Hazzia ,

An 8-1 ruling is like, 5 broken clocks going at slightly different paces being right at the same time though! That's pretty impressive, right?

Hazzia ,

Because they fight literally everything Biden does in court.

Hazzia ,

Accidentally change the result by being the only voter lmao

Hazzia ,

The most effective ways to die sound painful, and even for the "painless" ones, if you fuck it up you either suffer way too long or get slapped with insane medical debt and locked up in a loony bin for a ehile (usa). While I don't fear death itself or have a strong emotional attachment to the life I'm living right now, my life's in no way bad, so it's still an easy choice for me.

Hazzia ,

Bro I am the worst at remembering people. When I visit my hometown I sometimes get people coming up to me to say hi and I literally have no idea who they are. I can count on one hand the number of people I would actually recognize from this place I lived for 20 years of my life. Yes, I probably have some sort of cognitive dysfunction myself (on top of my serious introversion), but when it comes to "trump alzheimer's" I am far more swayed by him rambling about sharks out of nowhere

Hazzia ,

Kyoto. Absolutely beautiful, awesome cultural landmarks, and when I went pre-covid - we stayed in an air bnb - it had a cool large-town vibe despite being one of Japan's major cities. I liked it much better than Tokyo.

Hazzia ,

Jesus I had to read your first sentence twice lmao. Initially thought it meant "it won't matter who wins" as opposed to "your question is void in the event that Trump wins", which made me think you were somehow arguing that Trump could do all that even if he lost

Putin offers truce if Ukraine exits Russian-claimed areas and drops NATO bid. Kyiv rejects it ( apnews.com )

Russian President Vladimir Putin promised Friday to “immediately” order a cease-fire in Ukraine and start negotiations if Kyiv began withdrawing troops from the four regions annexed by Moscow in 2022 and renounced plans to join NATO. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy rejected what he called an ultimatum by Putin to...

Hazzia ,

I, a random American citizen with no political power, declare Putin's presidency null and void!

Hazzia ,

Ah, resting bitch voice

Hazzia ,

I am polite, most of the time. Wouldn't really consider myself nice tho.

Hazzia ,

OP did, in fact, confirm elsewhere in another comment. Still doesn't guarantee he's from a mental-health friendly nation, but it is kinda crazy that he was indicating that the USA was somehow inherently better for building relationships than other places...

Hazzia ,

Of course there aren't any reviews (not that I'd automatically believe them, anyway). While it sounds super exciting, I'm not super willing to spend almost 300USD for unverified tech. Somebody should send link this to Gamer's Nexus to review lol

Hazzia ,

Dude, same. On top of that, I also struggle with imposter syndrome and a work for a company with a burnout culture, which a recipe for constantly kicking your own ass for not having literally everything done always, so I force myself to try to be "productive" the whole time, which always, ALWAYS backfires, but the guilt from watching everyone else work themselves to death is just too much. I'm hoping to switch to a remote job with a company who values employee wellbeing over "the grind" soon though.

Hazzia ,

But where will I get the money to run it!?

Hazzia ,

"that is, if diabeetus doesn't get him first"

Ethics standard: yes, absolutely

Term limits: the idea behind the supreme court's lifetime placement was meant to separate them from the immediate political atmosphere of any given election season (imagine the entire bench being Alito's and Thomases while Trump was in office). While it's obvious now that it backfired by instead ingraining one over-powered president's bullshit for way longer than anyone wants, I'm not sure if I agree that term limits is a "good" solution if we want to keep that intended level of separation. Maybe moving the judiciary to a self-contained governing system similar to the military that doesn't require allocation from either congress or the president, where a lawyer can become a judge can be appointed to the circuit court, etc, but congress could still oversee the ascension process with their own ethics comitee?

Tie Dye Robes: this is highest priority

Biden Administration Tightens Mileage Standards to Buoy E.V.s | The new rule requires automakers to achieve an average of 65 miles per gallon across all models by 2031. ( www.nytimes.com )

The new standards require American automakers to increase fuel economy so that, across their product lines, their passenger vehicles would average 65 miles per gallon by 2031, up from 48.7 miles today. The average mileage for light trucks, including pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles, would have to reach 45 miles per...

Hazzia ,

I want the laws regarding importing small vehicles to change, too. I hate hate hate big vehicles, but I could definitely use a vehicle with a bed. I want a japanese mini-truck dammit.

Judge Cannon expands hearing on Trump’s request to declare special counsel’s appointment invalid | CNN Politics ( www.cnn.com )

"The issue, now before Cannon in the Southern District of Florida federal court, is likely to remain in the political debate at least until Cannon holds a hearing on the legal power of the special counsel to prosecute a defendant, on June 21."

Hazzia ,

Man, the New York charges get me every time 34 state felonies while a literal insurrection attempt gets 4 federal. I already knew NY as a whole didn't like Trump but it's glorious to see how much they must hate him

(I know Florida has more, but I'm not holding my breath because it's florida.)

Hazzia ,

It's crazy how little experts like these think of humanity, or just underestimate our tollerance and adaptability to weird shit. People used to talk about how "if we ever learned UFOs were a real phenomena, there would be global mayhem!" because people's world views would collapse and they'd riot, or whatever. After getting a few articles the past few years since that first NY Times article, I've basically not heard anyone really caring (who didn't already seem to be into them before, anyway). Hell, we had a legitimate attempt to overthrow our own government, and the large majority of our population just kept on with their lives.

The same AI experts 10 years ago would have thought the AI we have right now would have caused societal collapse.

Hazzia ,

Damn those goal posts are so far away by this point that they fell off the edge of their flat earth

Hazzia ,

Imagine being in a meeting with all the most important people when they figure out the problem and it turns out that you were the one who fired the guy. What I wouldn't give to listen in on that meeting lmao

Hazzia ,

Never heard of it before, but it looks like it's useful as a salad green. Clearly the solution is to embrace the goat inside of you and send it the way of the dodo.

Hazzia ,

Literally the only times I've heard anybody say anything about it was basically when they first learn about it and giggle for a few minutes, then get on with their lives.

I think the only way the name could be any sort of issue was if they were explicitly trying to be "family friendly," which would imply that it's intended for either christian mothers or advertisers (we all know how the children feel about sex jokes), which, since this is Lemmy and we're talking about FOSS software, I'm sure I don't have to explain why that's a stupid idea.

Hazzia ,

Absolutely agree that, at this point, he's probably right, especially if he were to go all-in on the free market aspect and cut 100% of fossil fuel subsidies. However, it does bug me that he's clearly ignoring how that "free market economy" produces those oil/gas/coal company vultures to begin with. The primary issue I have against vanilla libertarianism is their insistance that deregulation is a solution to everything when we're living in a time that's obviously worse off because of companies and individuals who weren't being properly regulated.

Biden campaign launches Pride Month push as allies work to shore up LGBTQ support ( www.nbcnews.com )

The campaign plans to have a presence this month at more than 200 Pride events in 23 states, including all of the battleground states, and to launch a paid media blitz aimed at mobilizing LGBTQ voters, two campaign officials said in details first shared with NBC News....

Hazzia ,

I'm specifically voting against Trump into the only direction that has a real chance of beating Trump, which just so happens to be Biden

Hazzia ,

Istg why do important people lately completely ignore what the person of interest is actually saying and substituting what they wish would happen? It's just like the fucking bankers who have been saying "the fed is definitely gonna lower rates" for the last year when then fed has been saying "we're definitely going to fucking not" and then get surprised when they dont

Hazzia ,

Oh sweet it's on 7/11 free slushie day, now I can watch collapse of democracy attempt #2 while sippin on a free slush

Hazzia ,

I can see a few legit users following him just out of curiosity to see what kinda shit he pulls, though I imaging a number of those unfollowing once they inevitably get sick of his shit. Or maybe they would follow him to enable another stunt like when all those kids bought out a Trump rally 2x over and just didn't show up, leaving the venue almost completely empty on live TV after they had set up all those extra seats

Hazzia ,

It would be nice if you could block everybody who follows someone you blocked, specifically because of "celebreties" like this.

I don't actually have tiktok, but like, in general

Hazzia ,

Question's been covered by others here, but I just wanna pitch in with I can't remeber names OR faces. Imagine how awful I feel when someone starts talking to me like they know me and I don't recofnize them at all lmao

Hazzia ,

To be fair, a guilty verdict wouldn't change my mind because I wasn't going to vote for him anyway

Hazzia ,

Can't tell if I'm excited for this prospect or disappointed that it's not going to be an army of anime cat femboys

Hazzia , (edited )

Not an EU citizen but is there any way for you guys to jist like, kick them out? I only ever hear about people wondering why they were let in to begin with

EDIT: damn I'm learning a lot about euro politics from these replies. Thanks guys!

Hazzia ,

Fake? No no no, my german great grandpa insists that it's 100% real and stalks the wood at night, waiting to consume children who masturbate

Hazzia ,

Considering the percentage of californians that have emigrated to TX the past few years, I'm actually really curious to see whether that radical red strategy actually holds or not. Would be pretty hilarious if the californians flip them blu anyway, ngl

Hazzia ,

I've only ever grepped log files. 9 years into my career now so not sure which side of the spectrum I'm on (i'm definitely on the spectrum)

Hazzia ,

Damn. I had a story but it's a hard nothingburger compared to this so I don't even want to write it

Hazzia ,

Similar but different:

I was leaving a facility and went to get in my car in the parking lot. Unlocked it, it went beep beep, and I got it. Then I realized something was off. This isn't my sweatshirt, this isn't my drink! This... isn't my car! It's the same make, model, and color, and some cosmic bullshit luck had it set to the same frequency as my keyfob!!

I quickly got out and got into my car 2 spaces down that was hidden behind a truck, just in time to see the actual owners of the other car come out of the facility and get in.

I bought a lotto ticket that day and lost.

Hazzia ,

Well okay then:

It wasn't really alarming at the time because I was a stupid child, but I may have almost gotten kidnapped. One day in the 90's when I was maybe 4 or 5 years old, my family all went grocery shopping at Target one day and I somehow got separated from them and started wandering around looking for them (hadn't learned "stay in place" yet). Some nice lady offered to help me look for them, took my hand, and after wandering for a bit, said "maybe your parents are out in the parking lot!" So, she took me outside and we were walking to the end of the lot when I did, in fact, spot my parents. Turns out they had completely forgotten/not realized I wasn't with them because they were loading groceries and getting ready to leave.

When I say "my family" went to Target, ot was my parents and older brother, so by no means a Home Alone situation. Really I'm more alarmed at them than the lady for having left their youngest child in Target.

Genuinely I can't even remember because growing up, my dad was that type of guy who took us kids to obligatorily "fun" things and without fail did or said something that would make it feel completely miserable, then get angry at us for not having enjoyed ourselves at the fun thing.

A couple of instances I remember in particular was when he took us to Hawaii (he wasn't rich, just wanted to look rich and was very good at avoiding debt collectors) and kept being an entitled shitbag to the poor staff which made me super uncomfortable the whole time, and the time he took us to a magic show in vegas and spent the whole time explaining the tricks when I didn't even fucking ask.

I now find it very difficult to find any "fun" things actually fun.

Majority of Americans wrongly believe US is in recession – and most blame Biden ( www.theguardian.com )

Nearly three in five Americans wrongly believe the US is in an economic recession, and the majority blame the Biden administration, according to a Harris poll conducted exclusively for the Guardian. The survey found persistent pessimism about the economy as election day draws closer....

Hazzia ,

I mentioned it in a different comment, but there was a paper written by some economists that compared the current inflation formula with the one they used to use (in use in the 80's, iirc) which takes borrowing costs such as mortgage into account, and that 9.1 peak pandemic inflation number doubled to 18 something %, with our current 3.4% becoming something north of 9%. So yeah, not great.

Hazzia ,

Or just tax their fucking wealth...

Don't you threaten me with a good time
