We...we could've been saved at any time in the past nearly four years by these groups?

WHY'D THEY WAIT SO LONG???

Why the sad tag?  Obvious off getting beaten by police for following their orders?

Not sad. Good. We need everyone to point at us and tell us how much we suck right now.

And yet my mother in law still posts crap on Facebook that is borderline delusional.

Maybe a coalition of democracies can invade us and make us change our government.

We're basically one predictably catastrophic, illigetimate election cycle away from becoming a flat out failed state right now. The GOP is doing everything in their power to fark with this election, and if they stay in power we are completely screwed.

That the Trump administration cared so much was surprising: It had quit the council two years ago, calling it an anti-Israel "cesspool of political bias" and denouncing its membership for including human rights abusing countries.

Every accusation, a confession.

/... and even if it did have some abusive countries, the first step would be getting them to the table, which I guess is why we don't want to be anywhere near it.

Good job predicting something that 100% of people also predicted, slightly later than they predicted it.  And also predicting it about the wrong leader, apparently.

I'd give you a gold star sticker but I haven't taught middle schoolers in a while so I'm out.  Just imagine one at your convenience.

We're in something more like a Stage IV cancer that was diagnosed Stage I by oncologists some 30 months ago, had an 87% chance of beating in the long run if we dealt with it properly, but doing something meant a change in our daily routine and that was too upsetting... so now we're going with the Pikachu face instead of admitting that Our™ collective apathy was always the most significant variable in our own doom.

Or maybe we were a third world shiathole country this whole time, but with fat inheritance to bop around on, and that bankroll is finally depleting to the point where we can't cover up the holes fast enough.

Try hundreds every year.  That's without getting into the non-lethal abuse that minorities are subjected to.

I was just thinking about how we're going to need outside observers for our elections.

Not just for this one: from now on. Even if Trump gets the boot there's too many desperate gremlins willing to cheat to pretend that everything is fine.

"If we add so many exclusions to the data that it only lets us pay attention to 2% of the recorded police fatalities then the problem goes away" is an incredibly stupid take.

And you were told that the last time you drooled it out over your keyboard.

What difference will it make? Any time cheating gets exposed it'll be dismissed as fake news foreign meddling.

Also: if Trump wins in 2020, she likely will be on another continent because we might be leaving this one.

She doesn't have any idea, and if she did, she'd assume we weren't serious or some shiat.
