I was just telling my friend this the other day! Huffing glue is such a thrill, but one google search? Yeah of course it tells you this sort of fun is bad for you.
MSM/Big Healthcare hit pieces about the dangers of glue huffing are easy to find, so I’m just going to wait until someone gives me a more reputable source for refuting glue huffing. I won’t fall for the global conspiracy/collusion hogwash like the other sheeple. /parody
Wikipedia can be fallible, but it is a hell of a lot better than propaganda-laced websites like “The Grayzone”
Does that mean all msm news or any news should be fact-checked by some person in their underwear editing Wikipedia?
The only time I use Wikipedia is to check on say a footballer’s stats or some band biopic. And those are not always correct if you have knowledge of them beforehand.
Who fact-checks the fact-checkers? Who polices Wikipedia?
People were also complaining it was too hard to follow developments with all rhe nonsense spread in. I’m trying to only move over the more obvious candidates. I suppose i could just temp or flame everything posted over there that should be over here with context
I think it doesn’t matter what we do, can’t please everyone
On Ukraine, while not being anti-Nato, I think the West interfered in Euromaidan, in effect laying the groundwork to overthrow a democratically elected but pro-Russian leader.
Then jumping into the fray this time without thinking how it would impact supply chains or the average Joe and Jane in the pocket book for energy.
During the Cuban missile crisis, Kennedy wouldn’t allow warheads in Cuba.
In the 19C, the Monroe Doctrine dictated neutrality for European powers in the Americas.
Yet, we are in their backyard and sphere of influence.The promises made by James Baker after German reunification on NATO expansion? Not saying anyone should capitulate to Putin, but what happened to discussions and trying to de-escalate?
With Hunter Biden’s links to Ukraine etc., the Dems have become the Chickenhawks.
What has always made America great was openness to discuss, even those with whom you disagree with. In this era of jingoism and polarisation, I think groupthink has won
Tseng’s pastor, Tamih Hkaw Cilangasan, commemorated him on facebook. Tseng wasn’t acutally Amis Pangcah. He was really a Sakizaya. So his people experienced genocide by the Qing government, and his family barely escaped to friendly Pangcah tribes where they hid their identities for a century. Around the time of the 1996 Taiwan strait missile crisis, his family briefly moved to Belize, probably anticipating a full-blown war. All these cultural and personal experiences made Tseng very aware of the pain of losing one’s home. Tseng was also a very committed christian, and voluntarily served in the ROC army prior to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Tseng felt compelled to help, and resigned his post early to join the Foreign Legion.
Russia takes out electricity and water supplies for the majority of a country before winter. That’s fine. Ukraine targets a bit of infrastructure, that’s Nazis. With the support of the evil NATO and/or UK.
