Colleges and universities spent an estimated $2.5 billion on fees for hedge funds in 2015 alone. They paid an estimated 60 cents to hedge funds for every dollar in investment returns between 2009 and 2015, according to a report by the Strong Economy for All Coalition. chronicle.com/article/How-Colleges-Lost-Billions-to/239245
Trump Team Fosters Fears He'll Adopt Alternative Economic Facts
Instead of using the mass industrial system as its launching point, this mode of insurrectionary technopolitics will look towards an as-yet unformed productive system whose genesis lies in the shops, garages, basements, and pop-up labs in anonymous urban zones and boring suburbs. c4ss.org/content/47950
REEE when will war against USA start? I want to be a part of that.
Why is my country like this? There have been real tangible effects of climate change here but all our politicians seem to care about is the coal industry.
Ahahahahah Trump getting cucked by daddy
Everyday I look forward to this thread
I like seeing how much OP misses from Reuters and AP bigstory
What did Ecuador do right that Venezuela did wrong?
yes I'm sure somebody was holding a gun to the heads of the poor defenseless piggies they are the victims boohoo
The sad part is they really think they they're the victims and not the people whose lives they destroy
Reminder, he needs 40% and have a 10% lead to the second placer to win it in the first round.
Right now he's at 39,11% and the second has 29%.
What the fuck is up with this article. The author seems to be saying that what Milo said in those tapes is OK. Saying older men having sex with thirteen year olds is not abusive and useful for helping them find themselves is completely repulsive. If a man was to say this about young girls no one would be defending him.
Do these people not know thirteen year olds, the vast majority are way to immature to have an equal sexual relationship with an adult. Is that author gay? Can someone who is gay on this board tell me whether this type of attitude is normal in your community? I've had gay teacher and friends who I respect but anyone who tries to normalize this thing is a serious degenerate imo.
I'll be the first to admit im attracted to newly pubescent girls but I would never act on in or try to argue it would help them to sleep with them because I know its wrong.
Oh boo hoo, they had no other choice! O woe and such misfortune those poor innocent little piggies were FORCED to fire at those evil, awful disobedient """civilians"""
Can't call them civilians if they aren't civil, free will must be beaten into submission, daily reminder that your life has no value.
Interesting news. Shit article. Been checking local sources, none of them mention any correlation with Trump, nor what they were rioting about, so that is presumably all speculation. From the local sources: Seriously, wtf
Holy shit, someone actually is defending Milo?
Copied this from another thread. Dunno how true it is because I honestly don't give a shit about Milo enough to care.
Here's the lowdown:
Milo was the kid in a gay pedo relationship when he was 13-14. He talked about the experience and said it didn't fuck him up and he didn't feel like a victim because of it. He, personally, was okay with it happening to him at that age.
That's it. He never advocated for anyone else to do it, never advocated actual pedo shit. He told the story of himself being the victim and his own experience being not so bad for him.
What got added to this were a pair of clips put together that make it look like Milo is shitting on age of consent laws, but it was a clip from another stream where they were talking about affirmative consent in college rape cases. A seriously dirty fucking play by the media. But when you put the three things side by side, it paints him as a pedo defender if you don't know the context.
Why is the first link in these threads always Russia shit?
Russia is more happening nowadays.
Not an argument
I haven't even clicked the link yet and i'm already raging.
But it's basically correct, there are several competing deep state factions. The one thing they can agree on is anti-Socialism.
Well to be honest, it already does fail, it's just that first world people don't notice. It just happens that, unsurprisingly, developed country can outbuy a limited food supply while poorer countries get stuck with shortages.
This basically happened back in 2007. There were food shortages all around the world, but its effect on the developed world extremely limited.
Great, gotta link that article in each thread your ilk spammed on this board. Of which there's like 20 at this point.
Trump wanted Putin to RENT Crimea?
Trump getting cucked by Putin
From the article their reasoning was that it would be a way to end US sanctions on Russia. It was floated as an idea by Trump advisors who have financial interests in that happening
Convenient. Just enough time for the US to tamper with the results.
Why does every hebe-defender rely on lazy ad hom? You're not even being silenced you're just responding angrily for no reason.
Your hypocrisy really is limitless, isn't it?
…ad hom users? Lazy argument makers?
If calling you a "hebe-defender" was an attack then you need to get a thicker skin. I made no value judgement other than defining what you were.
It's a dramatic mischaracterization of hebe-defenders, so it's arguably worse than just calling them names.
I guessing this time will be longer and a more noticeable?
It's not a mischaracterization if every response I've gotten on the subject contains a knee-jerk "retard" response for daring to question their arguments.
Impossible to predict such a thing. Maybe there are some bio-engineering advances that would alleviate a shortage, or maybe not. You can never tell from the outset, only be vigilant and prepared.
Yeah it's kind of fucked up. He basically talks about his experience being kid-raped but said he doesn't consider himself a victim and this is the response. I know what your going to say: "I'd care about this if it was someone besides Milo." I know. Don't waste your breath.
This is not an ad hom, you retard. Compare:
"You are a puritan retard, therefore I'm right" - fallacious, the latter does not follow from the former. "You are a puritan retard" - a simple statement of fact. May be true or false, but is always logically consistent and as such cannot be fallacious.
John Oliver says we should go to war with Russia.
True. Not understanding the difference between insults and ad homs is reddit-tier retardation and should be a banworthy offense.
I actually liked him when he was playing that drunk teacher in Community.
But holy shit, he became a literal spokesman for neoliberals
my favourite thing about john oliver is that he never connects the dots between all the shit he covers. HBO would never let him say capitalism is bad he is too much of an """edgy"""john stewart to actually do it.
