#1415422 Donald Trump Is Your New President.

Posted by raubhimself on Yesterday, 08:20 PM

Unrelated, but I'm looking for some help with a project I'm trying to get off the ground over the next month or so. Our city budget hearing season is coming up where you can go to budget hearings and give input into the city's discretionary budget. But really since it's one of the few accessible ways to get in front of every city council member, you can gripe about anything. Last year we did this as a group in my neighborhood to get a stretch of a street rebuilt that has been neglected for two decades and has caused a lot of problems for people. We as a group hit up all of the almost 30 hearings to make our voice heard. This year I want to organize a coalition to push for comprehensive and compassionate solutions to the growing homeless situation in our city.

 

tl;dr:

If you know of any articles, resources, etc, that other cities or communities have done to combat homelessness, please send them my way.

 

I don't want to show up and just say "fix homelessness". But I need to educate myself more.

#1414980 Chiptune Appreciation Thread

Posted by raubhimself on 20 February 2020 - 04:08 PM

Yeah there just isn't anything like that unfortunately. Even chip=win is sometimes months behind on stuff.

 

I think chiptunes just hasn't matured to the point of like, being able to exclude bad stuff? I don't really know how to put it more nicely. Many chip musicians and fans are still at a point where literally any chiptune music is novel and amazing. I feel like chip=win is kind of like that sometimes. The reviews aren't really reviews, they are just things they think sound good. I don't really think there's ever a bad review, and I don't blame them because that would piss some group of people off. Like 99% of the stuff on the facebook group is stuff I'm not into or I just don't think is good, but the only reactions are either stay silent or say "Yeah, awesome dude!" And if you have to accept everything as noteworthy, there's just an overwhelming amount of stuff to sift through.

 

I don't really want to come off so negative about it. I like the stuff I like but not everything has to be tailored for my tastes.

#1414581 Donald Trump Is Your New President.

Posted by raubhimself on 13 February 2020 - 04:30 PM

I want to add an example to this from recent a post:

Armcannon: "Elizabeth Warren, Harvard Economics Professor, thinks we can pay for these things, who the fuck are we to argue with her?"

 

Compared to: (which is the same sentence format)

Any Trump supporter: "Donald Trump, successful international businessman, thinks we cannot pay for these things, who the fuck are we to argue with him?"

I haven't read the rest of your post yet, but this stuck out at me big time.

 

Warren was a Harvard economics profressor, that is a fact. That comes with its own pedigree. There's a lot of room for subjective opinion on that as well, but the fact remains, she was a Harvard economics professor, and you have to have some amount of expertise in knowledge to be that.

 

Trump being a successful international businessman is entirely subjective. By many measures, he is a terrible businessman. This doesn't mean he didn't make money though. He is a successful grifter, cheat, conman, and exploiter. Saying he is a successful businessman relies on equating making money to being successful, which isn't necessarily true. Many people fail upwards, many people make money despite themselves and at the expense of others. Trump by all historic accounts, falls in that camp.

There don't need to be billionaires in the world.

Here's a hot take: if you have a billion dollars, anything over that should go into social services. Yeah, I'm talking a wealth cap.


I wonder what makes this a "hot take". Like, who would argue against that?

Someone who doesn't understand how much a billion dollars is?

Someone who thinks everyone should be free to do what they want? (No one actually thinks this)

Someone who thinks everyone should be free as long as they don't harm others - and doesn't understand that "harm" can include more than individual instances of physical violence?

 

Yes to all of those. They all exist.

Utah is literally flying state employees to Mexico to buy prescription drugs because it's cheaper than health insurance.

#1414447 Harden The Fuck Up February

Posted by raubhimself on 11 February 2020 - 01:59 PM

I didn't make any specific plans but I've been feeling a weird unfeeling type depression for the last 2-3 months. I don't feel bad, I don't feel good, nothing excites me, nothing really moves the needle one way or another for me. But, I forced myself to go to the gym yesterday for the first time since July or August. I was going pretty regularly then but got really busy with other stuff and never got back into it. Hopefully it's a step in getting back on track.
