HSC syllabus content retained shouldn’t be the only thing that qualifies you to finish high school. Some people are so immature that they should be made to better themselves as people before entering any sort of ‘real world’. Fuck you.
“What has emerged in the second decade after 9/11 is a remarkable consensus among Democrats and Republicans on a core approach to the nation’s foreign policy. It’s certainly not a perfect alignment. But rarely since the end of the Cold War has there been this level of consensus. Indeed, while Americans may be divided, polarized and dysfunctional about issues closer to home, we are really quite united in how we see the world and what we should do about it. […] Paradoxically, both George W. Bush’s successes and failures helped to create this new consensus. His tough and largely successful approach to counterterrorism — specifically, keeping the homeland safe and keeping al Qaeda and its affiliates at bay through use of special forces, drone attacks, aggressive use of intelligence, and more effective cooperation among agencies now forms a virtually unassailable bipartisan consensus.”—
In simple words: While domestic policies remain a forum where disagreement is diverse and intense, the platform for foreign policies is where agreement is reached. Which also means candidates claiming to change the foreign policy won’t deliver much - similar to the case of Obama. Drones, bombing, covert ops, assassinations will continue to “protect US freedom.”
I meant to post this earlier. Read it. And don’t apologize for this stuff with the old “but at least he’s not Romney!” garbage because somehow when the focus is on electing the favorite of two candidates, very important issues like those mentioned are swept under the rug. These issues can’t wait for some people.
So tired of the “but he’s not Romney!” line. Obama fails on foreign policy, and that matters most to me, because foreign policy affects more people than any of his other policies. He’s kinder to college students with debt, good. He doesn’t despise women and wish to strip them of their rights in the same way Republicans do, good. But innocent people keep dying at his hands in countries many of his citizens can’t even locate on a map, and to me, that is unforgivable. You can’t protect your country at other people’s expense like this.
Come down All the fighting’s over I let you breathe your own air I will set my arms down in a corner When I turn around you will tell me how you’re up now from your dream of clovers Said “not a thing will compare to the sense you give me and disorder when you turn around and I can’t breathe.”
I would like to request that any teenagers wanting to complain about the fact that they’re single do it far away from wherever I am at that time
It gets to the point where you just sound like a whiny fuck who has nothing else of substance in their life
Or it sounds like your life is so wonderful that the only thing missing is a goddamn boyfriend who you can text 500 times a day and ignore all of your friends for
Either way, seriously, you will get no sympathy from me. Maybe when you’re 60 and have never been kissed or something you can complain, but being single at 16/17/18/19 is not a goddamn reason to whinge every day
If I see one more person compare the campaign for gay rights with the civil rights movement in the United States or the independence movement in India or oh my God anything like that at all I am going to fucking kill something.
And you don’t want to be here in the future So you say the present’s just a pleasant Interruption to the past And you don’t want to look much closer Because you’re afraid to find out all this hope You had sent into the sky by now had crashed And it did Because of me
People always criticise protestors by saying they’re violent. Yo, do you know the meaning of that word? Going limp when a cop grabs you is not a violent response. If you’re unsure of what violence means, ask a cop. They’re very familiar with that tactic.
