The Last of US: Part II - Early Impressions
Video Game News & Discussions

I'm about 7 hours in. Think it took my roommate 27 hours to beat the game. Enjoying it so far - I forgot how frantic the combat can get.

Major spoilers in no particular order to follow:

Why is this image NOT racist?

Counter-counter-point:

In what universe is that a 'counter-counter-point'? It's case-in-point for the paragraph you quoted.

The DOJ proposes a pro-censorship bill disguised as an anti-censorship
bill

Politics & Religion

Doesn't help that most of the right wingers complaining about section 230 seem to think it says something completely different than what it actually does.

Tl;dr this bill doesn't itself explicitly kill the internet (like the last one would have) but it does still set a pretty dangerous precedent

What do you predict Trump will do after losing?

I'm not convinced he'll lose. Not to Biden.

It's a long five months to November.

How Privileged are you?
Politics & Religion

59 out of 100. Some of the questions are weirdly open to interpretation, so I erred on leaving them unchecked.

In your face, anyone who believes in "white privilege".

That's a really weird conclusion to draw from a quiz that's about a wide spectrum of "privilege" categories.

It's fair to say that Obama could have done much more on this issue, but I think the idea that he did "nothing" isn't supported by the evidence.

Defund the Police? Wait what the fuck.

if you believe that police response times are outrageous now with current funding trends I don't think they are going to get better after defunding them.

I think you're taking the "Defund the Police" slogan a little too literally. It's less about taking

I highly recommend finding a good password manager. It'll cost you a couple dollars a month, and once you get used to it I think it's faster and more secure than anything else.

My personal favorite is 1password.

Interesting context on Mattis, there was basically universal support for him on Gtx0 at the time of his nomination:

#defundthepolice is the most idiotic liberal idea yet
Politics & Religion

Officers are suspended, so the entire unit "resigns" (except not really because they don't have the backbone for such a thing) in a show of solidarity for their fellow bullies.

Law enforcement's contempt for the vaguest whiff of accountability on full display. If the supposed 'good cops' are wil

Attacks on journalists surge in US protests
Politics & Religion

A handful of officers have been disciplined (or more accurately, they have been reassigned to desk duty pending an 'investigation') for these incidents. But by and large it appears most of these officers will get away with their behavior.

If that is the case, we can expect further escalations and

From what I have observed, right wing media is largely not covering these violations of press freedom.

They are perfectly willing to play the "gotcha" game with the mainstream media however:
