  1. The Weed Thread

    How much is an 8th where you guys come from? I've been grabbing mine for $25 in Philly. If you go to some of the worse neighborhoods you can find them for $20 which is crazy, I remember like four years ago they were always 35 or 40.

    Is there any evidence/literature pointing to opium control being a factor in U.S. military presence in Afghanistan? I'm not really understanding the causal connection here. It's not like the American government is selling the opium.
  3. I.R.S. 2005 demo redux - Buckethead w/retail mix

    I'm definitely interested in that.
  4. Mustard

    Spicy brown only. Horseradish mustard for certain situations. Yellow mustard is just crude.

    This isn't the case for everyone. My mom is low income and her work insurance costs her around $200 in addition to medication costs which can be as high as $94 for her. Previously she had next to free health insurance, independent of her work, I'm not sure what the change was but she said it was her only option (I will ask next time I can) . I do agree that generally if you are poor the system works for you (I pay nothing myself) but for whatever reason it doesn't for many.

    You just carry it around and it hurts your credit. I have ~$1000 following me around from a few years ago, I went to the hospital with Strep throat, they gave me some Tylenol and a prescription for antibiotics.

    You go to the emergency room, they treat you and kick you out as soon as possible once knowing you don't have insurance, and you end up with thousands in debt.

    What white privilege is really meant to show is non-white disadvantage. I always felt that the term is needlessly antagonistic in tone for something which is hard to deny.
  9. It's cool to hear him single out Buckethead in particular.

    True. But at the same time, things like Supreme Court picks only don't affect you until one day they actually do, you know? It's rare that something affects everyone or even a majority of people, but that doesn't make it meaningless - it's affecting someone and someday it could be your turn. It partly comes from a place of privilege (hate to drop the p word here) to know that oneself will be generally unaffected by political debates & decisions because its the more vulnerable groups which would generally be more likely to be affected by such things. I think it's probably a better thing than not that the state is rigid enough to not go through drastic structural changes according to whatever the contemporary political whims are. We take whatever deeply rooted injustices are inherent to the system in exchange for our stability.

    Uhh, yeah? Maybe what I wrote wasn't clear. Most cases seen by the Supreme Court (or a lower court... In fact, especially a lower court) do not have issues at stake which neatly fit along the ideological spectrum or partisan lines that we know here in America. So the fact that two judges from opposite sides of the aisle vote similarly has no connection to the conclusion of that picture (that partisan battles are a show/theyre all the same). Edit: now seeing a different read of your post. At first I was reading the "Right." sarcastically. If thats the case and your point is just that this Supreme Court pick just doesn't matter as much as we all made it out to seem then I suppose I agree, but the whole thing became about more than that. I still find the picture silly. https://caselaw.findlaw.com/summary/court/us-supreme-court/201806/ @wasted they vote on like 80 cases a year I've read so there's a lot of bullshit ones

    Not every Supreme Court case is over an issue which is necessarily partisan or divided in ideology along a liberal/conservative spectrum, in fact I would think that most wouldn't fit neatly along those lines. So the premise in this picture already holds a broken connection to the supposed conclusion, which is itself ridiculous... How can anyone possibly say that they agree on "almost everything"?

    I agree there should be a hearing, but many have seemingly already made up their minds.

    I am completely understanding and sympathetic to the reasons that women do not always report rape or report it immediately, but there is a large (or just loud?) chunk of the left which is not even attempting to grasp what it would mean if we were to reject Kavanaugh only based off of someone's word. The precedent it sets is simply unworkable. The threshold for evidence required to ruin someone's career and reputation just cannot be zero.

    I could very well see Trump responding to Axl, he'd have a lot of material for him. I wonder what his nickname would be (trump gives all of his enemies cartoonish nicknames)
