FS. Wikipedia contains a great wealth of information that is free for anyone with internet to access. Sure, it can be inaccurate, but so can any other source. The notion that random people edit Wikipedia and add false information is overblown since experienced editors often check all changes made to their articles to see if they are legitimate.

So songs like Work?

No, songs like Work are supposed to be ghettoish and more like "Trap" music. Matter of fact most of her music lately (Bitch Better Have My Money) has been like that, and it's a turn for the worse.

As opposed to Disturbia, Only Girl, Please Don't Stop the Music, and Shine Bright.

It should have gone to Osama. It's not supposed to be a reward for good behavior.
Precisely.

Good for them. The treatment of prisoners in some places and the awful conditions of many prisons nationwide is something that is far too often ignored. They are people too, and despite what some may think, many of these people are not violent criminals. Just because they are prisoners doesn't mean we can just wave off whatever bs they go through, with the excuse "they broke the law so fk 'em!"

Good. You need to stop ignoring so many people.

131  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: HuffPo: Trump Threatens War Over Hand Gestures on: September 10, 2016, 09:42:29 pm
As someone who almost never defends Trump, the thread title and the HuffPo title is misleading. Obviously Trump wasn't referring to literal "hand gestures". He was obviously referring to the incident when Iran captured several American sailors for allegedly being in their waters.

Stop being dense/dishonest.

Rihanna was better when she did 16 year old white girl pop music.

To paraphrase Chris Hitchens in the passing of a similar person:

"Giver her an enema and you could bury her in a matchbox, that's all I'm saying."

136  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: "Never wrong pundit" Allan Lichtman predicts Clinton win. on: September 06, 2016, 07:54:43 pm
Lichtman has obviously falsified the second and almost certainly the fourth key (Johnson and Stein will almost certainly have more than 5% together and they take more votes from Clinton than from Trump). But to his defense, his model has no way to react to the challenger party losing an easily winnable election because they nominated a terrible candidate, which is not surprising when you consider it hasn't happened any time recently (1948 is probably the last time it happened, considering that the Republicans should have won by the Lichtman keys).

Sad that number isn't higher.

This a thousand times.
138  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Why do the monarchies have so high quality of life? on: September 05, 2016, 01:21:06 pm
The monarchies have higher HDI than the world average. United Kingdom, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Japan and Arab countries have high quality of life (exception: immigrants in Arab countries don't have high quality of life).

Why do the monarchies have high quality of life?

To be fair, calling the countries in bold "Monarchies" per se is a tad disingenuous. They are Monarchies in name only, in practice they are liberal democracies.
139  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who would you vote for: a social justice warrior or a white nationalist? on: September 03, 2016, 04:15:33 pm
No there's not. These are a handful of trolls on the internet, not real people.

https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/no-true-scotsman

You made what could be called an appeal to purity as a way to dismiss relevant criticisms or flaws of your argument.

In this form of faulty reasoning one's belief is rendered unfalsifiable because no matter how compelling the evidence is, one simply shifts the goalposts so that it wouldn't apply to a supposedly 'true' example. This kind of post-rationalization is a way of avoiding valid criticisms of one's argument.

Seriously, can we stop with this outright denial? I'm not saying these people are some kind of massive movement but they are a problem on some college campuses. They form lynch mobs against anyone they suspect of being problematic under the guise of "call out culture", and deliberately seek out the most ridiculous things to be massively offended by. It's like those morons at Yale who got offended and made a scene yelling and screaming about fuking Halloween costumes. But I suppose they were just live action twitter accounts "from 4chan", and not "real people".

But I guess if I had to choose between the two I would vote for the SJW, but that could depend on if it was an extreme SJW (Dworkin types) as opposed to a more "moderate" White Nationalist (Trump types). But if they were equally extreme then I would have to and vote for the SJW.

142  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do you support the TPP? on: September 01, 2016, 01:22:36 pm
Strongly support.
I had some misgivings about it, yes. But there is a lot at stake. American credibility in the East, Obama's pivot to Asia, and future initiatives are at stake. If we don't pass it, our workers don't profit, our economy doesn't profit...but China does.

The Democrats frustrate me on gun control and trade.
145  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Canadian comedian fined $42k for joke on: August 31, 2016, 09:19:59 pm
That "joke" he made was despicable. I'm honestly not that upset that he may be fined for it

Because it sets such a great precedent for freedom of speech! We can't have "freedom of speech but". We either have freedom of speech or we don't, even if it is offensive and even vile.
146  General Discussion / History / Re: In world history, which great conquerors were great rulers too? on: August 30, 2016, 08:19:35 pm
Why not Mohammed? His religion basically included a political system along with it, and he reconciled the various Arab tribes, and set the foundation for the greater conquest.

That's exactly why he was terrible. Are you trolling?
147  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Which national pizza chain do you prefer? on: August 30, 2016, 06:59:19 pm
Pizza Hut. Best overall quality for the price. Little Little Caesar's is just the McDonald's of pizza.

President or Secretary Of State.

Karimov is a piece of garbage and I can't say I feel sorry for his condition.
