Alabama has elected a democrat to the senate for the first time in 25 years!

I read the story today and that was so crazy. People in this story killed themselves because of the guilt of their sins. This whole thing could be a movie really.

    Lending money to people who don’t have any is surprisingly profitable. In states where such stores are legal, such as Missouri, they’re more common than McDonald’s franchises. But in the 15 states where such stores are against the law, there are millions of desperate people willing to pay for fast cash and no one to give it to them. Scott pioneered what he thought was a clever legal loophole that would give him access to that market: He created websites that were owned on paper by an American Indian tribe, which could claim sovereign immunity from regulators. Those sites charged as much as $150 interest on a two-week, $500 loan—an annualized interest rate of about 700 percent.

This all sounds like the beginning of some drama movie but it’s all real life and people are getting screwed over as we speak.

So I should be expecting a live death tomorrow?

A lot of people on the right thinks Soros is funding all leftist movements. BLM. Antifa. Feminists. It's all Soros, this evil leftist mastermind!!!

Soros is pretty much a rally cry for the right sometimes.

Is it just me or does it seem like nobody really gathers phone numbers anymore? All you do is get someone's social media and then you talk to them on there. There is no need for a phone number or to listen to someone's voice through the phone when you have so many other options out there. Do you guys know a lot of people that really talk on the phone anymore?

Bad Pubski. You're late!

From what I have observed throughout the years is that nobody really likes the white moderate liberal. It's either go to the far left or the far right but don't be in the middle.

White Conservatives think white moderate liberals are giving up too much to minorities.

Far Left White People think that white moderate liberals are not doing enough and that they should be doing more even though they maybe dealing with their own personal problems. It's like Revolution or Nothing.

Minorities that are involved in left politics don't trust white moderate liberals and just think they are just latching on to make themselves feel better or that they are not serious about the movement.

I however do see minorities I know that do post things on social media telling for white people not to give their point of view on minority issues. I see it all the time. They say that white people should just listen. Most of the minorities that I see post this are from the poetry slam circles I sometimes interact with and usually very young and in the process of a college education. Very far left people.

When I first saw this article on a friend's facebook wall, all I could think was, "Wow, these guys are just trying to increase the amount of vending machines."

It's pretty much a hipster attempt at a vending machine but it's adding nothing new really.

People really hate this idea so far:

If these bots could really talk, they would be spewing things like this:

The best I got when it comes to making fun of nazis is this:

I'm not sure we can completely do absolutely nothing about this. In the past, Neo-nazis used to have their own little corner or were completely hidden in the dark. Nowadays it's seems like the Internet has given them a bigger voice and better access to contact one another.

If a rally happened in Charlottesville twenty years ago, who would know about it? People in the local community and from the surroundings. But is a person from California or Alaska or Montana going to come out to this event? It may take those people a while to find out about where a rally of this nature to take place and they may be too late for it. But today, you can learn about such things in less than twenty minutes if you know where to go and you can definitely plan in advance when you hear about these things for the first time on Facebook or Twitter.

Also if nobody counter-protested at these rallies, wouldn't more nazis come out? If the protests were safe and there was no consequence wouldn't that enable more people to join up. I think the possibility of violence at some of these things deters some people from coming out. There are probably white nationalists out there that would want to come out and rally but can't because they're scared they would be outed to their job about their beliefs or injured or killed.

How can this be fixed though? Well that's a tough question to solve. I think this is more than just wanting a reaction anymore. It's a thing that's growing. The Westboro baptist church, remember them? Why aren't they a problem in today's America? Well they never really grew. They just mostly stuck to being Fred Phelps's family members even when they got internet attention. Everyone in America knows about them but no one is looking to join them. The Alt-Right/White Nationalists want to grow though, they want more and more members. They want the rich businessmen who want the old ways, the college kid who feels like he's falling behind, the poor factory worker who has nowhere to go, the gunmen who feel like the government is going to take away their guns at anymore, the suburban fratboy, the mother who is afraid her children will pick up bad things from minorities and so much more.
