Politics is killing us we change the voting system from a first past the post system to an instant runoff system. That way we can vote for the reasonable candidate without fearing "losing" our vote. Fear is what keeps the two-party regime in power. It's also why they keep getting more extreme.

So I've chosen to avoid most forms of social media. I know a lot of people will assume my silence as pro-agenda for whichever side, but I'd rather stay out of the matter.

I run a sizeable whisky related IG and this morning almost every post I saw was just a black box for blackout tuesday or whatever it's called.



Personally, I'd rather not speak about it. (I'm a double minority, my voice isn't any louder or quieter than anyone else exercising their free speech. Welcome to america)

If you're not saying anything, it's fine. It doesn't mean you're being complicit. It just means you are exercising your right to not say anything at all which can be a form of speech. Silence. Big surprise. Or it can mean you're neutral and you're waiting for all of the actual facts to be released to make a decision.



Since this thread is called random thoughts....


I haven't watched the news in a year and a half. Just decided to turn it all off. I hear things from people and then I MIGHT do some research myself.



So can ANYONE tell me for sure this cop was a racist and not just a power tripping officer that manslaughtered another human? Race isn't even relevant unless it can be proven that it is. He could easily just be a s*** human.

Yes.

The cop in question has killed and attempted to kill multiple other people who are minorities, and has a dozen police brutality complaints lodged against him.

This isn't anything new for him, he just chose to do this one at a very bad time.

A neighbor busted the water main drilling for posts. They had to shut down both wells. No water. Once fixed, boil orders until water gets re-tested. Sucks. I didn't get my shower in.
