Putin is a War Criminal
There is only one way out of this. Voting is the only tool we have to make change that matters. Toss all 147 assholes who voted not to certify the election and tried to break America as a start. Add at least 4 Democrats to the senate and end the filibuster. Codify Roe. Amend the 2nd amendment to include that states have the right to restrict what types of guns may be owned and how they may be carried based on that states circumstances.
America may need 20 years of Democratic government to get this done, but it MUST be done. Otherwise all is lost and we may lose all that we hold dear and all that matters most. American exceptionalism is the ability to continue to progress even when forces combine to tear us apart.

Well, I have my suspicions but I won't burst your bubble. I've given up on predicting the future. I'll only say that Democrats have had 50 years to codify Roe. They've spent a long time fundraising off of this. And they're already sending out more emails asking for money. People can do what they want, but I think if you have money to donate it should be going to aid organizations. Many have been planning for this and have plans in place to help women in the affected States.


Some of the future is easy to predict. The nation wasn't in a mental or financial state to withstand the hate and division this has caused and the sun hasnt even set yet. Several hundered families will go hungry this week in our area because we had to shut down the food bank today. We were literally being told good thing you're distributing the food today because you're going to burn tonight. So nstead of feeding tbe needy today I'm on fire watch. Turning hungry people away is heartbreaking but the threats and insanity were happening before we even got the food unloaded from the trucks. Several older volunteers and a couple of the kids were shoved down and screamed at and spat on in the first half hour. Most of us aren't even members of the church, we just donate food and money and help distribute it to those in need.

That's so fucked up @MilesHigh. These fools are actively trying to stop people from having the most basic of needs!

These type of people, I really don't understand. I mean I get all sorts of fucked up behavior, but this is just such a low bar power trip that it's some of the most self degrading shit I can think of someone doing.

I hope you all are okay and you can soon safely resume your work!

And congress needs to pass a law as expeditiously as possible that states that "No state government may in any way attempt to inhibit or interfere with a citizen or resident choosing to go out of their state for medical care, or punish said resident for doing so."

I'm missing some context.....this was at a church food bank where people showed up to protest, shut it down and get physical just because the food bank was affiliated with a church and there was nothing else drawing them? Folks like that usually need something to get them going and a food bank, church or otherwise isn't usually a target.

Just to be clear - I don't condone violence from either side. Just trying to understand why a church food bank was targeted.

It is the closest real church for 50 miles in several directions. Isolated and out of any town limits. Lots of bored angry people in the surrounding mountains of Colorado. Ive never seen the majority of the angry people who stopped to scream at us (although a few were regular food recipients) . I suspect many were headed to one of the local resorts and saw a crowd at a church, due to the Roe ruling they either assumed our crowds were protests or they simply saw a convienant place to blow off steam. Cant really speak for thier state of mind, most were too full of hate to listen or do anything except threaten us with burning I guess they blame churches and or christians. Since we have 1 local cop from the next town over, the safe thing was to shut down. Volunteers are trying to use thier own cars to deliver food to the families we know depend on us.

Getting flipped off or screamed at is normal if you're standing outside the church on any given day, but today was astounding. I'm glad I dont live in a major city, I think we're going to see some truly ugly aspects of America in the coming weeks.

I just volunteer there, I'm neither a member of the church or a Christian, thus I cant speak for the churches stance or dog in the fight aside from the fact its a church. Maybe they're fire-breathing jerks on Sunday's...

Random people screaming and flipping people off daily at a church. Gotta find something for those people to do with their time. They obviously have to much of it on their hands.

Here's hoping someone got pics and plates at today's debacle.

I'm sure most of you know that we would never allow an abortion thread on FC, but that is what this thread is turning in to. So I will ask you all to refrain from discussing abortion in this thread going forward. Non-compliant posts will be subject to removal.

Thank you.

:peace:

Look, I don't like cops. But this is no way to treat the vertically challenged


It's a little satisfying to watch a cop who just threatened to murder a guy get his shit pushed in. But dannnnng he didn't need to go so hard at the little fella! He literally ran away. And the look on his face. Wow ☹️. Officer down. And all his buddies are like "knock it off, he's just a boy!"

I noticed the account name that posted this is "Google LASD Gangs". I forgot there was a big story over the past few years about how the LA County Sheriff's Department is infested with gangs. Mostly white supremacist gangs. The initiation is usually to murder a civilian.


The only difference between cop gangs and regular gangs is tax payers often have to pay out big settlements to the families of the people cop gangs murder.

If you have Hulu "Under the Banner of Heaven" was great. Season 1 of "True Detective" vibes. I didn't have a super high opinion of Mormonism before watching. Now I find it terrifying. Same tier as Scientology.

Lots of talk about GROOMERS lately. Important to note, Joseph Smith (a known fraudster BEFORE his spooky claims) specifically set up Mormonism as a Groomer Religion. Still amazing to me that the fastest growing religion in the world was founded by a 14 year old. Teenage boys lie about fucking everything.

I felt that Under the Banner of Heaven was taking a few liberties with the story, in fact it was all set in the fictitious town of East Rockwell. A more accurate and also more current show about LDS spin off groomer religions is Keep Sweet Pray and Obey, a limited series on Netflix.

Might be time for a second career as a Pre-Calc teacher. "Class, before we begin. Let us ask the Dark Lord to bless these logarithms. Hail Satan!!"

I'll never say it outright, but there will be a implication in the air that students who refuse to praise Satan will receive fewer extra credit opportunities. The School cannot fire me over this. Thanks Supreme Court!

Sweet, it makes more sense than both teams praying to the same god. Maybe I'll start watching football again. Instead of a hail Mary you can throw a hail Satan.
