    [–] Reddit, what does everyone need to calm the f*ck down about? Redditsoldestaccount 2 points ago in AskReddit

    More fear mongering than when the first world war began. And the problem is, it makes any real issue less believable.

    Thank you!

    I think you're right but this is a useless exercise. Both parties exist to exploit you and maintain the status quo. Look up inverted totalitarianism if you are interested

    What about CNN's treatment of treatment of Bush?

    Look I really would not like to get into a red vs blue argument as I feel that just distracts from the larger issues we discussed before and takes our scrutiny away from the people in power. If you want me to, I'll concede that the red team deserves more blame but I feel its a useless exercise.

    Do I think Bush was a good President? Absolutely not. Do I think Obama was a good President? Absolutely not. Both presidents enabled the erosion of our liberties and strengthened the police state in which we currently live.

    I don't think we've had a president looking out for American interests since JFK, maybe Jimmy Carter too.

    I don't think this is strictly a partisan issue or the blue or red team's fault. I try not to look at things through that lens

    That being said, I think a good portion of blame can be placed on Jerry Falwell and his ridiculous claims made almost daily back in the 80's that were pure fear-porn. On the other side of the coin, you can blame democratic establishment figures for constantly victimizing their base. To what degree either of these had an influence I don't know, but the point is both sides are guilty and we can see that today with identity politics on both sides of the aisle.

    Comparing Fox News and Fox Business is extremely useful

    This is a very good point

    This phenomenon to argue about the SOURCE of information instead of the actual information is very, very disturbing.

    It seems there's been a slow but steady trend over the last few decades to make everything more about identity politics than the actual issues. I can't tell why or how it's happened but its here and we saw it culminate in the 2016 election.

    Is it because the quality of public education is so poor? Maybe, since politicians are (supposedly) representatives of the people.

    Astro-trufing from both sides of the political spectrum (ShareBlue vs Cambridge Analytica) are a cancer on the site.

    Dude I hate Trump, but just because someone has a different opinion than you doesn't mean what they said is invalid.

    The simplist scenario is it was a random mugging or altercation.

    If it was a mugging, why were none of his possessions taken? He had valuable items on his person. The mugging explanation makes no sense.

    A random drunk altercation is plausible in a vacuum. But the fact that it was initially labeled a robbery and then changed to a murder after months makes this all really fishy.

    I have no idea what's going on here, but the case is extremely suspicious though and smells like foul play

    It seems you're choosing to view these comments in a negative light, my friend. You can determine on your own how to perceive the world, and if it is the negative way so be it, that is your choice.

    I can tell you from personal experience that my life improved significantly once I made a concerted effort to find the positive in everything, for what its worth. You really do reap what you sow :)

    Just some thoughts that seemed applicable to this conversation. I hope that you choose to use your powerful intellect in a positive manner in the future.

    Cheers fellow internet stranger

    Actually it was the Balfour declaration in 1917 by the British that created this mess.

    Your username is quite relevant. Good day sir

    P.S. Here's an article that was on World News last week about how the State Department doesn't want to classify a sect of Al Nusra (terrorist organization) as terrorists for fear of getting sued for supplying terrorists in Syria (which is exactly what the US has been doing). https://www.reddit.com/r/worldnews/comments/6b9cxz/worried_about_being_sued_canada_and_us_refuses_to/?st=J2QQ3Q60&sh=d0902367

    You technically just did. By the way, the United States exports more terror than any other country. I say this as someone born and raised in the United States. Take some time to actually study our history beyond what they told you in high school. One day you will understand.
