    Because we don't reliably test for COVID, people are frequently diagnosed with post-covid syndrome without ever having a positive test. So there are theoretical false positives, but there's a reason for that

    Marty: The future, it's where you're going?
    Doc: That's right, twenty five years into the future. I've always dreamed on seeing the future, looking beyond my years, seeing the progress of mankind. I'll also be able to see who wins the next twenty-five world series.

    I feel like he's making that comparison because he's one of those people who goes "No it's not a paradox because as soon as X% of the ship is replaced that's a new ship, duh."

    a man who surrounds himself with people that tell him he is right does not care if he is wrong

    The thing about cops is they love to make illegal midnight no-knock raids into wrong houses and get very upset when the innocent and bewildered residents shoot at them.

    Assuming the innocent and bewildered person doesn't immediately die in a hail of return gunfire they probably get arrested for trying to shoot a cop that kicked their door in at 2 am and never identified themselves as cops.

    So yeah. Stand Your Ground laws should also include cops.

    Feels like one of those cognitive dissonance things where they were writing it thinking of the IRS or the ATF or what have you and only after the fact connected that to cops

    Cops will be like "we had to shoot him in his own house, we thought he was about to shoot us for being in his house!"

    oh wait I guess they already do that.

    also police still have qualified immunity, so if they shoot someone and it turns out they shouldn't have it's like "whoooooooops"

    if you're a homeowner and shoot a cop because you think they were overstepping their authority but then it turns out they weren't because Judges/juries believe cops' lies, you got no protection because you should have made a split-second legal analysis of the situation and now you're a cop-killer and the justice system is gonna squash you good.

    The number of protesters on both sides is growing.

    The number of armed protesters is growing too.

    The anti-fascist and LGBTQ rights supporters side has more people and guns at the moment. As seen here, a group carrying guns arrived a little while ago.


    It’s about an hour before the Christmas drag show starts. Both sides have grown quite a bit, but the LGBTQ side far outnumbers the far-right protestors side by about 4 to 1.

    this is why they will never take my hope, my fight from me. i'm not special; we all are. those that benefit from telling us we're alone will find out just how wrong they are

    it sucks that we have to fight, but when i feel defeated i have to make myself remember we're in this together. they can't defeat us all

    edit: whoops wrong thread

    I saw this last night and meant to post it. The whole thing is so funny cause right-wing chuds always think that anti-fascists/leftists won't use weapons

    Y'all second amendment rights apply to everyone better figure that out

    I generally mostly like John Green (as a YouTube/TikTok personality), but it’s also kind of telling that I don’t immediately know which of his books you’re talking about.

    Well, until we start defending ourselves and then, weirdly, a whole bunch of gun control laws start coming in.

    Didn’t WA state introduce legislation recently introduce a law that the sheriff gets to review every gun licence application?

    Yeah, iirc Black Panthers saw the NRA suddenly being pro gun control.

    In a world where I had a magic wand, I’d much rather no one had any guns but, given the real world situation, having an equal level of armament to those that wish you harm is the only sane play, really.

    I still haven’t taken the move to gun ownership myself but, it seems a progressively more favorable move each day.

    I think you're thinking of Measure 114 in Oregon, though WA might have also introduced similar legislation
