Lauchs,

I batch cook and freeze stuff, so honestly, most of my food.

Lauchs,

Really depends on what you make! Absolutely wouldn’t freeze say, a steak. And texture, generally agree with you. But some jerk, adobo, honey garlic, curry chicken work just as well reheated. (Make the rice fresh though.) Same with a lot of pasta based dishes (or sauces, a bolognese freezes perfectly.) Even marinated chicken thighs and veggies are great!

Lauchs,

Man, I remember reading lists that were pretty much the same about why people would obviously vote for Clinton in 2016.

Don’t remember how that went, can you remind me?

Lauchs,

Should unite us but somehow about half of America insists they are going to vote for trump.

So it does matter who runs against trump because, believe it or not, people disagree with us. And I would rather not see another trump term.

Lauchs,

No, but the age thing certainly is sticking. An overwhelming majority of Americans ate concerned about his age.

Like, Taylor Swift only has 60% or so approval in America whereas I think it was some 70 or 80% of Americans are concerned about Biden’s age/mental acuity.

Lauchs,

Canadian here. If I call in, pick it up then yeah, about 10 is my general go to. They’re in my neighbourhood, I like them and I’ll spend more than that on an unnecessary beer without thinking.

I’ve seen a lot of good places go under, I’ll do my small part to help keep places I like in business. Admittedly, while I’m not rich a few extra bucks here and there to people busting their asses isn’t a backbreaker. (Worked in kitchens, am not a hard enough worker for that ever again. Mad respect for those who do.)

Lauchs,

You might read the article a bit more carefully.

Silver is distinguishing unscripted speeches and/or interviews from scripted speeches, of which yes, there are many.

The question isn’t whether Biden can read from a script it’s whether he can respond off the cuff.

Lauchs,

I’m not convinced this is valid criticism as much as supposition.

It is a widely shared supposition, that’s literally the point of the article.

To sinplify: Trump may win because an overwhelming majority of Americans think Biden is too old. Biden’s team has been unable to convince the public that he isn’t.

Lauchs,

It’s not the media, it is an overwhelming majority of Americans that are concerned.

Covering your eyes doesn’t actually keep away the boogeyman or reality.

Lauchs,

I mean, the Right is going full force on Biden’s age and Biden/Biden’s staff seem unable or unwilling to forcefully rebut this by putting him out in unscripted moments.

And frankly, Biden’s age was a concern in 2020. Regardless of how much I want him to win, it would be an absolute dereliction of journalistic duty to not cover it.

Especially because if Biden is fully with it, a good hard interview (or even an absolute softball like the Superbowl interview) should be the easiest thing in the world.

I'm a US citizen, people in other countries, what do you think when you read stories like these about the US health care system? (www.vox.com)

I’d like to know other non-US citizen’s opinions on your health care system are when you read a story like this. I know there are worse places in the world to receive health care, and better. What runs through your heads when you have a medical emergency?...

Lauchs,

I just feel bad for y’all. Most Americans I’ve met are at least nice people who probably deserve healthcare.

Lauchs,

Yeah, i get how capitalism works and yes, I do feel them kids should lose their arms getting my clothes and/or phone’s cobalt.

Lauchs,

He’d probably cure him.

Or, pull the world war Hulk move and jettison him into space.

Lauchs,

I’d love to see Hulk grabbing, twirling and tossing Batman using his cape against him.

Any other greens feel under attack recently from democrats in the United States?

I’m voting green because if democracy is ‘on the ballot’ then I figure it’s the choice I actually believe in and not just the slightly lesser of two evils. And so recently I feel targeted by democrats and its getting kind of weird and I was wondering if any other greens are experiencing the same thing in the US. I’m...

Lauchs,

I think of it as follows: Five of us in a car and we’re sorting things out democratically. Two of us, including the driver, think the ride would be way more fun if the driver goy blackout drunk and wore a blindfold. Two of us want to go to Mcdonald’s. You don’t want to go to McDonalds and suggest a salad bar.

Well, the votes are tied and the driver and his buddy win by default and we all die in a car crash.

Yes, a salad was better than McDonalds OR a car crash but goddamn, reality is also a thing and doesn’t care about what we want.

The time to push for significant change was the primaries and our fellow progressives didn’t show up to vote. Voting a third party now just feels “if I don’t get my way, I’m taking my ball and going home!”

‘Just Like We Drew It Up’: What’s behind Joe Biden’s Super Bowl post? [12 Feb 2024 | Sarah Shamim | Al Jazeera] (www.aljazeera.com)

Yet, it was no meme page or troll account posting that image: It was posted on Biden’s own X page early on Monday. Coming against the backdrop of Israel’s brutal war on Gaza that has killed more than 28,000 people and that the US has backed, the image prompted particular criticism of Biden by some social media users....

Lauchs,

That’s a lot of posts to avoid answering pretty simple questions.

A) Would those people be alive if Biden’s social media team hadn’t sent that meme?

B) How much effort do you think Biden, or any of his cabinet who actually make decisions, spent on this? Several seconds approving it if that?

Lauchs,

You could just write out the more accurate and shorter: “those questions demonstrate the silliness of this post and as such I refuse to answer them!”

Lauchs,

Dafuq? He was the pollster who gave trump the best odds of winning in 2016, a position for which he took no end of mockery.

Lauchs,

Lemmy shitting on Biden for Gaza = “YAY!”

Literally any other criticism = DOWNVOTE THE HEATHEN!

It’s kinda weird folks.

Lauchs,

"All the stuff that was in my home was in filing cabinets that were either locked or able to be locked.”

Ehhh, I think there’s a difference between a locked filing cabinet indoors and a random bankers box in the garage.

Lauchs,

So it’s just lemmy basically wants Biden to win but doesn’t know American politics well enough to know that stopping supporting Israel would likely tank Biden’s chances in the election?

Lauchs,

No, because it’s super disingenuous to criticize Biden on it like Trump wouldn’t be way worse.

Yeah, this is my basic problem with Lemmy on this. Biden’s actions are largely the result of American political realities and trump would be way worse. Dangerously so.

Lauchs,

A multi national change where people can purchase weapons and use them as impliments of domestic terrorism is a keyword? How utterly unsurprising.
