How do the mass shooters become democrats, most of the time mass shooters become dead. What the fuck is this woman injecting into her veins?

West Virginia teachers hit the picket line

UNION TEACHERS and staff in public schools across West Virginia will begin a two-day strike February 22–their first in almost 30 years–to call for increased pay, an end to attacks on seniority and a real solution to the crisis of the Public Employees Insurance Agency (PEIA) that provides health care coverage for state workers.

No shit her claim isn't true you retard, that isn't the point, the point is it's absurd just on its face

We're coming for that toothbrush whitey!

He won't get anywhere.

I can't be the only one that thinks that these student protests are where the alt-right crumbles. Rubio got fucking eviscerated last night and Trump's listening session was a goddamn joke. GOP leaders are hiding and the NRA are attacking everyone.

The Right's weakness is on full display.

Oh man, could you imagine if the Trump administration were taken down by a group of traumatized children with determination? It's like a Care Bears cartoon, it's great

...

How is it absurd? I fail to see what you're this worked up over.

UK LECTURERS START 14-WORKING-DAY STRIKE
bbc.co.uk/news/education-43140729
Honestly lads, this is a kinda big thing: it is perhaps the first organised revolt against the very concept of New Public Management itself and is the longest strike in many universities' histories by a long shot.

Just to note the Petro brought in 700 USD: which is 25% of expenditure.

Most mass shooters seem like right wing Holla Forumstards to me. Not that Democrats aren't shit, but Holla Forums is fucking delusional.

TYBNewsAnon2.0

Zizek says patriarchal statists are in retreat. I tend to agree.

These alt right sickos screaming Crisis Actors and spreading Alex Jones propaganda is just a fight or flight defense as they run away. They completely stopped using critical thinking skills and analysis to debate their positions. The laziness of their minds and willingness to embrace cringelords aides leftists far more than any single group of activists could hope to accomplish on their own.

Our job is to develop praxis and dialectics to ensure we don't get stuck with Obama liberals the rest of our lives. Because the right wing is digesting itself as we speak.

Don't get lazy with debate and resort to the same cringe tactics. Use that critical analysis leftists are known for to debate their lazy minds.

No joke, I've been thinking about moving and living in my car. I've been wanting to move to a city that pays more than 8 bucks per hour and doesn't have used syringes in every street corner, but I can't seem to get the guts to do it.

He’s talking about turkey

I hope they're actually there to coup them. There is no one I would trust more with the stewardship of Islam's holy sites than the Pakistani's.

If kids and teachers are taking to the streets, it raises the question why aren't more people doing so? This is going to open the floodgates for even more protests as people fully understand that Trump and the GOP aren't going to do anything to solve these problems and no amount of "civil discussion" is going to make them.

Can somebody please make an Eternal 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧Boer🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧 meme?

you mean Eternal Idpol

STRONG AND STABLE

my uni is full of whining bitch students complaining that teachers won't tell them if and when they are striking. the concept of a strike is clearly too confusing for them

Is Ramaphosa for real? Given that he was Zuma's deputdeputy and a hedge fund manager, I expected him to be more neoliberal trash. This is promising, but I'm still assuming the worst from his ANC.

honeslty even though it's just about gun rights, it's great to see so many high school kids protesting. Trump era politics have brought about more youth engagement than we've had for the rest of the 21st century

The Trump and the Republicans are going to lock up on this issue just like they did with DACA and that will make Americans question the legitimacy of their government.

I wouldn't be surprised if all of these recent protests merge into one massive movement against the GOP.

Man I hope so. But then again, Americans always let me down when its the right time for change.

PORKY IS SPOOKED

Can they pay their whole debt by selling shitcoins to nerds? LMAO

I agree. It's disgusting to see the ICE terrorizing kids and single mothers for some vague 'security' and 'worker protection' promises while the government refuses to do anything abkit school shootings and gives massive tax breaks to the rich.

Only for one year, but it may be what they need.

If you can convince lolberts into believing that doing so would undermine their socialism and is in some sense 'safer' than other cryptos, then yes, absolutely, hilariously

I know but I still don't want more war in middle east. Considering Turkey is in NATO this could sparkle an invasion of Iran and I just really don't want the people of iran to suffer as much people did in Iraq and Afghanistan because of US invasions.

that pic fucking 10/10

Tbh most of my mates from back home are petit-bourgeois and are like "why are they striking" but tbh I think they will win. This is the longest strike in uni history and both supporters and opponents alike are emailing units for refunds. if you are gonna run your uni like a company, get expected to get treated like company.

"end up being democrats" is just American "English" for "end up being discovered to be democrats"


Kek, saved

I think we're at the breaking point. Trump and the GOP's reaction to Florida confirms everyone's worst fears about this administration: that in the event of a major crisis, they'll divest themselves of any and all responsibility. They'll do nothing except lie and blame "fake news" and the democrats.

Muller files new indictment containg 32 counts, including tax charges against Trump campaign officials Paul Manafort and Rick Gates.

Mueller isn't fucking around.

Looking into this, the new indictments are because Rick Gates turned down a plea deal, so Mueller's going to hit them with a truck.

And this is on top of the previous indictments issued in October, which included conspiracy, money laundering, false statements, and failure to disclose foreign assets related to his work for Ukrainian politicians.

Do we have a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the gamer salt mines that just opened lined up yet?

I want to see the Holla Forumsirgin tears.

SEXTUPLE FOUR DIMENSIONAL MAH JONG

...

Most gamer gators hate vidya nowadays so this probably won't do much to change their opinion on Trump.

It has always been official.

They should just go ahead and nationalize ALL the land while they're at it. Land ownership is reactionary even under capitalism.

Time to ban everything besides tetris and nethack

...

Please tell me someone posted this on 4chan's Holla Forums. I want to see them crying tears of rage.

I don't blame Manafort for not flipping. I'd rather take a gamble on a presidential pardon and then facing NY AG Schneiderman than getting a ricin surprise courtesy of Putin. Let's not forgot Manafort stole 30 million dollars from a Russian oligarch…

...

I knew this was going to happen. I FUCKING KNEW IT.

Trump has always had a hate boner for Vidya. Holla Forums deluded themselves into thinking otherwise.

How is the child actor conspiracy theory still running around in FLORIDA in the year of our lord two thousand and eighteen

...

If anyone from the Russian investigation gets a pardon, you can bet your ass that the GOP won't win any election from that point forward. It'll be an admission of guilt on Trump's part.

Of course, Trump is too stupid to think in such broad terms.

The Right are desperately clinging to any flimsy argument they can to avoid addressing the problem.

Take for example their "good guy with a gun" argument, that if they have armed guards patrolling the school (preferably ex-cops/muh veterans), everything will be fine. Well…
