We let them off easy after Nixon.
And you bet your ass they'll try to gaslight you into nearly forgetting/downplaying the Trump era. "Yeah I voted for him, but I didn't SUPPORT support him" "Well, he was better than Hilary" "I only did it for the innocent children in the womb" "We need to heal this nation... Let my past transgressions go" etc etc.
The sad thing is, they'll probably be successful in doing so.
We, as a nation, need to hold their cold, jumpy feet to the fire they themselves lit.
Edit: *persecution, obviously. Thanks, autocorrect, for always being autoincorrect.
Also, obviously, "not all Christians". Mainly evangelicals. However, the large... LARGE overlap between Trumpers/Conservatives/Republicans and Christians is undeniable.
Didn't expect this to hit all. Thanks for the awards!
Edit 2: Please read the edits. Correction and the self-evident caveat above.
We are currently having a record level of downloads for the Signal app around the world. Between WhatsApp announcing they would be sharing everything with the Facebook mothership and the Apple privacy labels that allowed people to compare us to other popular messengers, it seems like many people are interested in private communication.
Some quick facts about us: we are an open-sourced nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring private and secure communication to anyone and everyone. One of the reasons we opted for organizing as a nonprofit is that it aligned with our want to create a business model for a technology that wasn’t predicated on the need for personal data in any way.
As an organization we work very hard to not know anything about you all. There aren’t analytics in the app, we use end to end encryption for everything from your messages and calls/video as well as all your metadata so we have no idea who you talk to or what you talk about.
We are very excited for all the interest and support, but are even more excited to hear from you all.
We are online now and answering questions for at least the next 3 hours (in between a whole bunch of work stuff). If you are coming to this outside of the time-window don't worry please still leave a question, we will come back on Monday to answer more.
Edit: Thank you to everyone for the questions and comments, we always learn a tremendous amount and value the feedback greatly. We are going to go back to work now but will continue to monitor and check in periodically and then will do another pass on Monday.
Top comments call for shifting support to third parties and purging the GOP:
"They didn't flinch when corporations got their covid payout but when it comes to helping hard working Americans, they don't care. We need to totally purge the GOP. We need a second party on our side."
Users begin accusing each other of socialism and concern trolling from other subreddits despite the thread being flairlocked:
Edit: other top-level comments begin supporting the idea of class warfare:
She's a support, her kit screams support and you should stop assuming she's a main dps and whine, like the whole Zhongli Drama.
Let me make that clear for you by pointing objective design characteristics specific to support characters in this game:
-She has an unique charge shot ability that deals a shitton of damage that needs you to be constantly on the field but you can just forget it and not use it because she's a support.
-Her ascension passive 1 boosts her special charged attack (that requires you to stay on the field) so you can use one or two to cover for the character switch cooldown after using her skills.
-Ascension passive 2 boosts cryo damage(what a coïncidence she's cryo) for all party members, we have a lot of cryo main dps so she's meant to support them :)
-Ascension stat is crit damage, a very useful stat for supports so they can do damage with minimum investments
-One of highest base attack value in the game so she can support her allies better with minimum investments
-Her E can also be used to give her space for charge shots but that's just the versatile nature of her skillset in action, it's clearly meant for support like Mona's taunt that constantly applies hydro.
-Her E also makes her dash backwards to make your other supports/Main dps lose time and make the game last longer hence supporting even you, the player :)
Yep she was designed to be a support and you guys are delusional
EDIT: Let's be real for 5 minutes guys, if you get a character level 90 with a 5* bow at level 90 at god knows what refinement with legendary artifacts at +20 of course she's going to do a lot of damage.
I wasn't wrong you guys are blind she's a support and the fact that Mihoyo buffed her burst to be spammable is the ultimate proof.
"I don't want to get in a word or sentence feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn't educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke," James said at the time. "And so many people could have been harmed, not only financially, but physically, emotionally, spiritually."
What James did not know was that Morey had befriended a number of Hong Kong residents while attending business school and had intimate knowledge of the challenges they faced living in a semi-autonomous country. His decision to tweet his support was neither rash nor uninformed, but a conscious effort to express his solidarity for people he knew well.
I (45F) have been a single mother to my daughter (18F) ever since her father passed away when she was a baby. It was hard pulling us through, but we made it. I finished my degree, earn a nice job with a high salary, and we now live comfortable.
One of my priorities was setting aside a college fund for my daughter. Her father had started one when he found out I was pregnant and I chose to add onto it once he passed.
When she was 17, I sat down with her and told her that once she is ready for college to not worry because I and her dad have saved up money for her education. I told her this money could go towards tuition, housing, food, books, etc. She planned on moving into an apartment in the same state as the school and attending some online classes/some in person. Anything to make her college life comfortable and fun I was willing to offer. I wanted the best for her because when I went to college I struggled financially. She was grateful and thanked me.
Obviously the pandemic has made school different for everyone and senior year of hs was difficult for her, but she was still accepted into one of the top schools in the nation (USA) and I was so proud of her.
4 days ago she sat me down and told me that she was pregnant. I was shocked because she was on birth control. I figured it was an accident. She's due in September, right when school starts. that meant we had to back out signing a lease for her future apartment and would have to stay home to raise the baby. Starting college with a newborn would have been a challenge, but doable. So I accepted it. until later that night I overheard--NOT eavesdrop--her convo with her boyfriend.
She told her bf not to worry about supporting the baby, she would just use her college money for it. I also heard that she'd been lying to me. Turns out she decided to stop taking the pill simply because she wanted to switch to a different bc, but she didn't tell me. So for the past three months she's been picking up her bc and she wasn't taking them.
If she wanted to switch to something else like the implant or an IUD I would have supported it. I'm not some stuck up prude, I was open to my daughter about protecting herself from STIs/pregnancy so this choice confuses me.
Next night I told her that she and her boyfriend would have to find a way to support the baby because her college fund was for COLLEGE only.
She broke down, asking me how she was going to manage to support her baby when she nor her bf had a job. I t... keep reading on reddit ➡
