  1. 100? Try 3000 years, Israel has been in a semi constant state of conflict and war since the Old Testament!

  2. if our brothers and sisters from the army say something is true, then it's true.

  3. “Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us,” Mattis writes. “We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society. This will not be easy, as the past few days have shown, but we owe it to our fellow citizens; to past generations that bled to defend our promise; and to our children.”

  4. The end of democracy is near. All news point to that. GOP is cheating in multiple fronts.

  5. This isn't as big of a deal as it seems, if New York hadn't lost the seat Minnesota would've.

  6. ... by increasing police power. The ONLY thing Dems and Reps agree on.

  7. What else are they supposed to do? Politely ask violent bigots to stop assaulting people due to their race?

  8. He could have used nunchucks like a real ninja would. Or those cool throwing stars.

  9. No shit, clearly this is a target he is setting for his successor to uphold.

  10. Joe Biden doing the bidding of industry lobbies - and cruising to loosing the U.S. Senate in the midterms.

  11. It will make it harder for them to achieve majorities in the house

  12. Why is everyone always calling for blanket cancelation? There are plenty of wealthy middle class people perfectly capable of paying off their loans, debt forgiveness should be means tested.

  13. To answer you and the redditor below you:

  14. This is the same argument conservatives give for lowering taxes, but at the end of the day, the government needs revenue, student loan interest is a way for them to get that and if you can live a comfortable life while paying off your loans, I see no reason for the Gov. to not collect. And plenty of people do live comfortable lives with large amounts of debt, like doctors and lawyers, or computer science majors and engineers. The upper middle class already pays far less in taxes than they should be.

  15. Hawaii never wanted to be a state. The vote for statehood was fraudulent.

  16. That's not true, they held a vote in 1959 and a majority of those who voted approved of it. At that time, the groups that didn't want statehood, mostly native Hawaiians, were a minority.

  17. Are Amy Klobuchar, Joe Biden, and all the rest of the politicians who pass this bill going to allow quadplexes to be built next to their houses? Nope.

  18. Depends on the year, currently it's to assist, train, and advise the Afghani government.

  19. Which is going to vote Republican anyway in 2024 whether the nominee is Trump, DeSantis, or Rubio.

  20. Sounds like a great way to lose to the GOP and hurt millions, people making a real difference usually don't have the luxury of being idealists.

  21. So neoliberals neoliberal? Very interesting.

  22. You're right, but I believe that OP was criticizing him based on the articles title.

  23. You don't have a high schooler's history education do you? What the White House said is as close to admitting they fabricated something to advance their military presence as it gets. We've done this song and dance a hundred times before.

  24. The report came out during the Trump administration, who vehemently opposed it as "fake news." Clearly they would not fabricate intelligence that would go against their own narrative. This is just a case of further investigation disproving early reports.

  25. So they are, which is good. The ANA is going to need all the training and advice they can get.

  26. What effect is the rise of crypto assets having? It can’t hurt to invent a new major asset that rapidly appreciated for everybody.

  27. Well maybe if YOU guys wouldn't have held hands with the right and denounced the leftists then we would have gotten a head start on all this. That was basically my main point. What's done is done, I get that, but let's not act like you guys are innocent saints here.

  28. You put way too much blame on the Democratic party for broader societal trends and the Republican's success with the southern strategy.

  29. They deserve it! Stop making excuses for oligarchs who sold us out long ago. The Dems gleefully joined the Repubs in denouncing "big government" over the last few decades.

  30. Because that's what the voters wanted, parties adapt to what the public wants, not the other way around. Progressive candidates were not viable at the time.

  31. Can't believe being against the unregulated selling of food is controversial.

  32. Because it should be so low on a list of priorities that a mayor ideally may never get the chance to address it.

  33. All he did was tweet about it, there's no evidence that he's going to let it interfere with him tackling more important issues.
