United States Politics Thread
NO BUY FRIDAY'S. LET'S DO IT.



This has been a hell of a year. I've changed mentally, and socially following several events and tipping points. So welcome to a whole new perspective, and a thread which may bring something similar to you.

Or not.

I never thought I'd see the day.

But the day has come.
The Establishment has divided the people based on cultural issues. But you can never ever bury the real problem.
And the real problem reared it's head, and the people exploded with a furious rage. Many trading companies are
stopping purchases of GameStop stock. This is Market Manipulation, and everyone can see it.

Left... and right.


This is what they fear, this is what they really fear.

We may not agree politically on cultural issues. But those issues come second to a stable economy for everyone.
Now that the Establishment Right and Left have purged themselves of their Populist counterparts, expect events like this to become more common.



As of right now, the GME Stock is holding well. Although it should be going up.
Hedgefunds are doubling down, but so are the Redditors.
The Gamestop Rebellion had their Empire Strikes Back yesterday. Soon the Jedi shall Return!
💎🤲


Gamestop Stock fell today. But not really.
Mega investors sold and bought stock of gme at low prices in high volume to artificially drive the price down. And then the media started fear mongering and tempting people with other stocks and investments to try and divide the movement.


WSB is fighting back hard, as they buy every dip.

Welp. Could have told ya this would happen. They're going after the Redditors and letting the Hedge funds go free.

Yeah, no. Don't expect any defense on this one from me chief.

Holy forget.

Shooting flies with a shotgun logic?
How about nuking an entire continent to destroy a wasp.

This is absolutely the worst anti-trans law to date.

Florida is a loving stuffshow of a state.

They threatened to take away their means of survival if they dared to even think of forming a union. They also incentivised them to report their co-workers under that same threat. All while creepily smiling and claiming not to be anti-union in their newgrounds flash animation.

Holy forget I was on the wrong side of things for too long. This is actually creepy and evil.


Derek Chauvin was not charged or found guilty of Murder in the 1st degree. Last year Derek Chauvin was
filmed kneeling on the neck of George Floyd. Afterwards he died from suffocation among other causes.
While charges in the second and third degree, as well as manslaughter charges have stuck, he did not
get charged with murder in the 1st degree.

Police shoot and kill baby.

Look.at this stuff.


"WAAAH NO ONE WANTS TO WORK FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR MAKING BOOMERS SNACKIES, ;((((("

TOO loving BAD.

Boomer forgets roll up in their big as sedans and teslas ordering up half the loving menu. Then one thing gets mixed up or hell maybe its sunday and "the lord" said 'god helps those who help themselves" so they helped themselves to a free meal at the expense of every food slave in the building.

"Oh yes ma'am, sorry ma'am"

#forgetOffMaam and take youre luxury vehicle, tiny dog and diabetic death snack with you.

Maybe people would get your order right or hell, even come to your stuffty job if they weren't paid just enough to live in a cardboard box behind the dumpsters.

But no, we're the entitled ones.

We need to "just get a better job." Or we "should have gone to colleg" they say from behind their highschool diploma or even a GED and 6 figure salary and multi million dollar retirement plan from a job they had for 50+ years.

"Millenials and Gen Z are lazy and entitled, now give me my frosty or I'm going to have you fired."

forget boomers.
forget the rich.
forget rich boomers.
forget bootlickers.

And forget capitalism.
Duces.


If we automate labor as we've been heading towards but we do so acknowledging that in the current system people will be displaced. We could tax the companies that automate labor fully and pay the displaced workers as though theyre still working that job. Just a BI and not a UBI here but...

UBI would expand from there of course. As displaced workers are nolonger forced to work for poverty wages doing back breaking work into the grave. They could contribute in other ways.

The more mentally endowed could study up into higher positions.

Those who are still more physically skilled could use their laboring skillset or abilities for more artisan goods than traditional labor.

And we could continue to step up the taxes on wealthy mega corps slowly to get the money needed for a complete UBI.

We'd need to become less lenient towards countries that dont have similar policies. and start sanctions and embargos to begin punishing those who dont start the automated UBI road. And for those who do wish to get on board, we should begin assisting in advancing their automation in labor.

Automation is inevitable. If we do not get in front of it we will go under it.

Putting this first and foremost. Funding internationally from the government itself is not a decision Fauci could have made.

This had to be passed through the house, senate and the white house. This happened just before covid.

This along with increasing likelyhood that the lab leak is now the most likely cause of covid.

The Annoying Orange Administration and the Republican Party funded the Lab that caused COVID19.

This pandemic is all Annoying Orange and the Republicans fault.

We must avoid this war at all costs.

We should consider some ideas becoming normal.

Surrender, will likely be necessary in a war scenario.

We could adopt more pro-chinese policies to cool tensions.

We could also adopt some chinese culture nationwide for similar reasons. 

This is a copy and paste so here's the source paragraph.

Why No Buy Friday is a great form of protest.

Yesterday was the 3'rd No Buy Friday. I like this idea it's simple, peaceful, team building, unites us, anyone can do, and has minimal sacrifice.

It's peaceful, no one gets harmed. Most likely you will postpone your purchases. There is no intent of harm. Any ideas that inflicts damage requires too much sacrifice, and many people will have fear such as losing their job, losing their home. This is just chill on friday. At first you will probably sacrifice being with your friends as they will want to go out and spend money, but once they join in, you and your friends can just go to the park & chill.
Due to above point this has potential to build additional trust with your friends, as it's also a team building exercise.
It gives a light signal to corporations that something is up and we are working together.
It is something that everyone can do no matter the income level.
The sacrifice is very minimal, and there is no risk of anyone losing their jobs over this. Just shift changes in jobs to avoid Friday. Which I hope will have a trickle effect into normalizing a 3-day weekend. I don't know how far it will go, at minimum this protest will accomplish us gaining trust with each other.
Builds a community that wants change. Right now there is a clear problem and we can't agree on how to protest, or what issues to protest for. This is a baby step that creates a rhythm, creates trust and belief that we can accomplish something together.
You don't have to go anywhere. I recommend enjoying your day with free activities like park, playing games, you can just stay home.
Disability friendly, and accessible due to above point. Anyone can join this protest.
If you see on the news that this isn't working, the fact that it's on the news means this protest is working. Anything that harms corporates will have a storm of FUD campaigns dismantling the organization. If such a thing happens that means a simple day like this is harmful more than we understand and we should definitely continue protesting like so. The media keeps telling us we can't work together cause it doesn't work. Well, it doesn't work cause first of the enemy is telling us it doesn't and we believe them. It's a self fulfilling prophecy. And secondly corporates put huge effort in dividing us for anything even if it's useless and I suspect they will try for this protest too. By growing weekly every friday, we grow our trust, our beliefs, and we unite on the simple fact that we want change. This thing alone will scare corporates.

Any form of strike requires huge amount of coordination, requires supporting each other, neighbors, strangers and more. No buy Friday is weekly and the coordination is adhoc, doesn't require a central entity, just your belief, which will make it hard to infiltrate. The protest itself is not perfect, it's not entirely my idea, I have seen discussions on this sub antiwork about doing different forms of picking a day and not buying anything. I want change, I'm frustrated, I want something, and this protest is the simplest, easiest to achieve. At minimum we will achieve uniting together on a massive scale. Unity alone will scare corporates as they have been fighting against it, and trying very hard to divide us.

Apes together strong!

Basically 3 day weekends should be the norm. And this could do it.
Don't buy anything on fridays. Nothint at all. Just vibe.

I believe the American people are ready for something better. This is our moment to prove hope is more powerful than fear, love is more powerful than hate, and light is more powerful than darkness.

i love how this artist drew Julian


tl;dr
Annoying Orange did in 4 years, what obama couldnt do in eight and biden couldnt do in 40.

He made change, positive change.

The riots are the fault of dem cities releasing rioters after arrest and refusing national guard help.

The coronavirus response has been way better than the media has made it out to be. 

Oh, and democrats dont have a spine, they run to get elected, not to make change.

Only post six legged land arthropods.
