    Watermelon Man is one of my favorite funky songs. Such a unique beat.

    This works sometimes, but it depends on which mod you get. I messaged the mods and the one who banned me demanded that I take a loyalty pledge before he unbans me. I refused, reiterating that my comment didn't break the rules in the first place, and I'm still banned to this day. Oh well.

    I also got banned from there. Literally advocating for non-violent resistance and I get a ban saying I'm an alt-right sympathizer.

    Sometimes I can't stand /r/Fuckthealtright, but this is great work. It seems like this is obvious to everyone but T_D.

    My argument is that conservatives such as yourself like to blame Obama for as many things as possible. Like this, for example. Obama wanted limited police presence in school discipline, so you say he made it easier for the young man to acquire a firearm since there wouldn't be anything on his record. That isn't true because, thanks to Republicans and conservatives in the state, there are still laws in place that make it incredibly easy to buy a weapon whether or not you have a criminal record. Obama's policy didn't affect his ability to acquire a firearm at all. But you know who else made changes to gun laws? Trump. He removed an Obama-era law that limited access to firearms to people with a history of mental health problems. Why not bring that up? It might not have applied to the shooter, and it might not have stopped him, but you can say the exact same things about Obama's policy.

    Hi I'm the person who sent you all those links to racist comments. I'm glad to see you hard at work! Let that ban hammer fall.

    It's slow because it's still a relatively new sub that hasn't gotten its deserved exposure. Feel free to link people here from relevant threads. I do my part by redirecting posts from /r/Existentialism, but a sub of this nature will only ever be as popular as the ideas we discuss.

    [–] This sub is so empty- does that confirm we are alone in our existential weirdness? OVdose 1 points ago in ExistentialSupport

    I wouldn't recommend either of those. Existential_Crisis is just as dead as this one, and their only mod is completely unresponsive. That's why I created this sub. Also, if you post material that belongs in this sub on the Existentialism sub, I will have to remove it.

    It wouldve been harder to get a gun.

    No, it would not have been harder. That is my point. It wouldn't have mattered how many times he had been arrested, he still would have been able to purchase a firearm legally through a third-party seller. And that is because of ultra-lax gun laws supported by Republicans and conservatives in the state. So your point about Obama taking police out of school discipline is basically moot.

    I think it’s a stretch to blame his acquiring a firearm on limited law enforcement involvement in school discipline. Firearms are ubiquitous in Florida and he could have easily purchased one legally at a gun show or from a third-party seller without receiving a background check.

    Yes, let’s turn Texas red, comrade. It’s about time for us to stand up and reclaim the value of our labor! Viva revolución!

    I mean, even the majority of voters didn’t vote for “your side.” I don’t think the majority of Americans are conservative in the traditional sense. We are constantly evolving toward the progressive side. Do you not see this?

    [–] Ted Cruz leads Beto O'Rourke 54 to 45, Quinnipiac poll says OVdose 1 points ago in politics

    Yeah 800 is a massive sample for a state like Texas. My problem is the people they surveyed. “Likely voters” polled through landlines? Yeah I’m sure that’s an accurate assessment.
