    [–] Trump Pick to Oversee Worker Protections Promoted Sweatshops on Remote US Islands wyldcat 1 points ago in politics

    Sabotage or incompetence? With so many people involved I can't see how it can only be incompetence on so many levels.

    When he's not picking idiots that don't belong in the department he's just trying to undo Obama's policies.

    He's sabotaging either by his own will or someone elses.

    Not sure what videogames you've played but Silent Hill and Fallout are some examples ehich proves that wrong.

    [–] I warned of right-wing violence in 2009. Republicans objected. I was right. wyldcat 1 points ago in politics

    People can be violent. But only one group marches under Nazi and Confederate flags screaming "Jews will not replace us!" while carrying torches and rifles like it's a mob about to hang someone.

    The other group are against these so racists assholes.

    [–] I warned of right-wing violence in 2009. Republicans objected. I was right. wyldcat 1 points ago in politics

    So you have separate instances of crazy people, not a group which calls itself "alt-left". On the contrary the "alt-right", mostly racist and Nazis, go by that group-name willingly because 1; to disguise their hate behind a new name 2; to form groups of like-minded individuals who are scared by themselves.

    There's no such thing as alt-left unless you are grouping together your normal protesters and anti-fascists with people in some "antifa" groups who are more extreme against fascists.

    [–] Trump’s Bold New Afghanistan Strategy: Neither Bold, Nor New, Nor a Strategy wyldcat 1 points ago in politics

    To have American soldiers suffer severe casualties only to be replaced by contractors so Devos brother from Blackwater can earn a ton of money?

    [–] WikiLeaks Turned Down Leaks on Russian Government During U.S. Presidential Campaign wyldcat 1 points ago in worldpolitics

    Lol I wonder who's triggered here hahaha, "perfect record". You are clearly only reading whatever comes out of Trump's ass.

    This is not the first time they have neglected to cover Russian leaks. They also have spoken out against the Panama leaks which the majority were about Russian businesses.

    Let me know when you actually have some facts on your side instead of trying to sound tough and scared at the same time.

    [–] Antifa: Left-wing militants on the rise wyldcat 1 points ago in worldpolitics

    You mean more people are upset with Nazis and racists trying to spread their bullshit? Those guys?

    Anti-fascist groups have always been a response to far right extremism, which the article clearly points out as well.

    If Nazis and other racists weren't on the rise again, marching in the streets and screaming "Jews will not replace us" then there wouldn't be a problem.

    [–] David's Drawings w/ Text Transcriptions, Pt. 1 wyldcat 1 points ago in LV426

    During the flashback with a voiceover from David would be a way to do it.

    Or it could be a in the form of a reply to a question from let's say Walter.

    Walter: "Shaw didn't die in the landing did she? What happened to the people here?"

    David: "No she did not. These people, I call them the Engineers, posed a threat, to you as well. One could say I did you a favor."

    Walter: "How could they pose threat to us? Their technology--"

    David: Supreme, but naiveté destroyed them. While the Engineers had definitely taken steps to evolve their genetic structure and durability they curiously maintained a strange deference to the sanctity of their original pre-technological state. Strange for a civilisation who has moved through industrial, technical considerations shown in their early structures to the evolution inherent in their eventual aesthetic as a spacefaring culture. One can only assume they ironically treated themselves as they do their cities as cultural and developmentally historical documents to be treated with reverence.

    Walter: ...

    Lol.

    [–] Over a dozen Cleveland Browns kneel in NFL's largest anthem protest yet wyldcat 1 points ago in politics

    but it is obviously a great tactic in discrediting someone.

    It is, but I'm not labeling you anything. Just trying to get a justified answer out of you for your belief that these guys aren't donating. Why even bring it up? What made you think like "oh gee I bet these don't even donate to any political organizations or protest any other time".

    It's a great tactic to shift the discussion to something else entirely.

    [–] Over a dozen Cleveland Browns kneel in NFL's largest anthem protest yet wyldcat 1 points ago in politics

    A story about a dozen black guys and you're saying, out of nowhere, with nothing to back it up, that you don't think they are donating to political organization because...?

    Just saying it sounds a bit racist.

    Also even guys who don't think sports and politics should be mixed are talking about this now, I think it might be working ;). Hopefully you too can learn why this protest is important.

    [–] Over a dozen Cleveland Browns kneel in NFL's largest anthem protest yet wyldcat 1 points ago in politics

    You sound pretty racist (and/or condescending) when you're assuming these players don't donate to political organizations. Also, why does it matter? They are protesting now and are making players in their own team and obviously other teams as well aware of a huge problem. An audience by the millions are getting more aware of the issues they're facing.

    What's the real problem here actually? If you don't want to mix sports and politics then just don't watch at that moment. You might be pretty young and unaware but sports and politics have always been mixed, especially when it comes to race issues.

    Like some other guy wrote below, it brings attention to a national problem on a national level:

    It brings attention on a national level its a very effective form of protest. It reminds everyone of the issues in our nation. They cant stop being black. They cant forget what affects their community.

    [–] Over a dozen Cleveland Browns kneel in NFL's largest anthem protest yet wyldcat 1 points ago in politics

    The two go hand in hand because it can happen to everyone, doesn't matter if you're poor or rich, racism exists and obviously people are dying because of it. It's an every day issue especially if you are black, it seems.

    I wonder how many of these players donate their hundreds of thousands of dollars to political groups of their liking off the field? Probably not many.

    Now how the hell would you even know such a thing? Not sure if racist or just condescending as fuck.

    Still works for me. It's from the official account.

    [–] Yet Another State Department Hiring Program Is Suspended wyldcat 3 points ago * (lasted edited 18 hours ago) in politics

    According to a program coordinator, the suspension is coming from upper management, which explains the freeze as necessary for the “redesign” and downsizing of the State Department. Pathways is continuing to send intern applications to State Department offices, but nothing is moving forward. “I’m still gathering documents,” the program coordinator said. “We’re still sending them but they are just holding them.”

    In an address to interns last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that all state fellowship and internship programs would remain in place.

    Earlier the Trump admin pushed for a federal hiring freeze:

    The federal government hiring freeze implemented by President Donald Trump as one of his first acts in office will be lifted Wednesday. But budget director Mick Mulvaney says many jobs will remain unfilled as the White House embarks on a government-wide effort to overhaul the executive branch and significantly reduce its work force. Mulvaney told reporters Tuesday at a White House briefing that the move was part of the president's campaign pledge to "drain the swamp" in Washington and save taxpayers money.

    "It does not mean that the agencies will be free to hire willy-nilly," he said. "What we're doing tomorrow is replacing the across-the-board hiring freeze that we put into place on Day One in office and replacing it with a smarter plan, a more strategic plan, a more surgical plan."

    The president signed a memorandum in January freezing large portions of federal government hiring, barring the military and positions deemed necessary for national security and public safety. As part of the memorandum, Trump gave the Office of Management and Budget 90 days to come up with a long-term plan to reduce the federal government's size.

    Not so much for Trump's "JOBS!"

    [–] David's Drawings w/ Text Transcriptions, Pt. 1 wyldcat 2 points ago in LV426

    Awesome work, much appreciated! It actually explains a lot I wish they would have put in the movie.

    [–] David's Drawings w/ Text Transcriptions, Pt. 1 wyldcat 2 points ago in LV426

    While the Engineers have definitely taken steps to evolve their genetic structure and durability they curiously maintain a strange deference to the sanctity of their original pre-technological state. Strange for a civilisation who has moved through industrial /technical considerations shown in their early structures to the evolution inherent in their eventual aesthetic as a spacefaring culture. One can only assume they ironically treat themselves as they do their cities as cultural and developmentally historical documents to be treated with reverence.

    Well that explains a lot. Why couldn't they have used that line in the movie somehow? If they extended the flashback or just showed it as a prologue it wouldn't have left the audience almost clueless to why the Engineer city and clothes looked so "ancient".
