Why SESTA Is Such A Bad Bill
We've been talking quite a bit about SESTA – the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act – and why it's so p.roblematic, but with hearings today, I wanted to dig in a bit more closely with the text to explain why it's so p.roblematic.

How do people say shit like this unironically?

Iran would be the worse war the US could ever possibly fight: imagine a mix of the terrain of Afghanistan with the ideological strength of Vietnam and the ethnic issues of Iraq.

Also yeah Russia would fuck with them the entire time.

If the US invdaded Iran, would Russia come to Iran's aid?

Russia would protect its interests, if that is supporting the Islamic Republic, some other government or actual invasion is up for debate.

The what?

Syria is a shithole where the government doesn't even register births. They'd likely get mitigation funding from the UN. Shill harder.

What does this mean? Stock market issues?
