Cripple. History Major. Vaguely left-wing.

I just hope it doesn't have repercussions in the general.

EDIT: Oh, it was only 13%? That's actually something of a relief. Stuck here in the Fediverse (and in a rural area where fellow Democrats are rare as unicorns) I was ready to hear 40% or something terrifying.

Can we send airmen OVER Ukraine?

France recently floated the idea. It's not absurd that the US would feel the need to state a position.

Attempts to influence Western elections, or a need to ration gas at the homefront? Perhaps a little of both.

Do it Macron. It'll make future generations gloss over the rest of your failures, like Winston Churchill being shitty every way other than leading Britain during WW2.

Well, yes, but the principle is the same.

"I literally can't see the difference between 'old man with shitty policies', and 'fundamental change in the power and decision-making structures of the country'. Both sides!"

You really crave a day-one dictator that badly, huh?

United Daughters of the Confederacy would lose Virginia tax breaks, if Youngkin signs off (apnews.com)

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Legislation that would end tax benefits for the United Daughters of the Confederacy — the Richmond-based women’s group that helped erect many of the country’s Confederate monuments — is on its way to Republican Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin, who hasn’t said whether he supports it....

Any daughter of the Confederacy is no daughter of the US. Yet they'll claim to be patriots in the same breath as they worship literal traitors who betrayed the country for the worst possible cause.

Well, he's just an informant. All sorts of horrible people end up as informants.

While I agree in principle that a one-state solution is preferable, the reality is that neither side is interested in any one-state solution that the other - or the rest of the world - would find palatable. A two-state solution is uglier and messier and all around worse than a one-state solution, but more viable. "Politics is the art of the possible, the attainable - the second-best."

Partially necessity and partially the ascendency of Hamas, which is uninterested in any... serious one-state solution. Fatah was much more open to the idea, though they still pushed primarily for the two-state solution.

Of course, Israel fueled Hamas's rise, so there's definitely an element of self-inflicted wounds here too.

1, he's been elected before, yet we've still got our election system.

Did you forget January 6th? It's not for lack of trying that our election system remained intact through a Trump presidency.

Dont by hypocritical, flip the roles around and imagine Trump or republican states are the ones barring Biden from running. It's not gonna sit well with you is it?

Of course it wouldn't. Because Biden running would not be contrary to the Constitution, unlike Trump, whose candidacy is a clear violation of the 14th. The rule of law should apply to everyone - not just the poor.

Well, to be fair, they WERE a bunch of pirates. Getting killed is basically an occupational hazard.

Yeah, not nearly as charming as "I joked around and read poetry to my captors"
