Can you believe that there was another Democratic party debate and nobody even cared to make a thread about it? The Alyssa Milano and Ted Cruz gun control debate was more /news/worthy, lol. Joe Biden is old
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/as-joe-biden-proves-a-durable-candidate-opponents-delicately-raise-his-age/2019/09/13/f64eb484-d633-11e9-9610-fb56c5522e1c_story.html

HOUSTON — Joe Biden has a record that spans nearly half a century, with some positions that can easily be cast as out of touch with today’s Democratic voters. He makes near-daily verbal miscues about matters trivial and weighty that can often undermine his own campaign.

Yet after Thursday’s third debate, the former vice president’s standing in the race appears as durable as ever, with none of his opponents quite sure how to attack him. None of their efforts so far have reshaped the race, and on Friday, Democratic candidates waded into a blah blah blah tl;dr nobody cares

The fact that polling data from multiple sources disagrees with your assertion, so either you were talking about him broadly (because he's less favored generally), meaning you didn't finish the sentence, or you live in some bubble where Obama is hated and then assume everyone else on the left side of the spectrum hates him too, meaning you're retarded.

Also it's entirely possible to be disappointed in the outcome of a presidency while still liking the man and his ideals (conversely it's possible to like the outcome of a presidency while hating the man and his ideals, ex. moderate Republicans' opinion on Trump). I personally feel there was a lot of wasted potential, he burned a lot of political capital to pass the ACA which ended up crippling the rest of his presidency, however I still like him as he represents a measured take on liberal policies, willing to compromise to try and get something everyone will like. Unfortunately for him, extreme partisans, left or right, don't compromise, so that same thing I like about him killed his presidency.

Honestly his failures probably galvanized a bunch of radicals: far left liberals, seeing that compromise got nothing done, decided to go all-in on socialist and identify politics shit; and far right conservatives, seeing liberal polices killed by a lack of compromise, decided obstruction is the best thing ever and started stonewalling even things with general bipartisan agreement or even other conservative ideas for not being conservative enough. Meanwhile moderates of both sides see this rising radicalism and find themselves wishing for another Obama type (though obviously moderate conservatives want a conservative version), which I think is why Obama's numbers remain high even though his legacy as a president is one of failure.

A transgender woman lost her job Wednesday after telling an employee of the Nebraska Family Alliance she was no longer welcome at a Lincoln coffee shop.

The story, told through varying social media accounts and interviews, started after Marilyn Synek, a communications specialist for the Nebraska Family Alliance, said she was told to leave Cultiva Coffee because of her political beliefs.

"This morning, I was asked to leave Cultiva Coffee and never come back because of my conservative (principles)," wrote Synek, a University of Nebraska at Kearney alum who has interned for Sen. Deb Fischer and Rep. Adrian Smith.

Synek said she stops in Cultiva once a week and has never worn anything political in the store or broadcast her conservative political beliefs.

According to her post, the employee said she recognized Synek and started berating her, calling her "bigoted trash."

"You are not f - - -ing wanted in our restaurant, so get out and don't come back," Synek recalled the employee telling her. "If you do try to come back, we will all refuse any service to you."

Reached later, Synek said while the woman raised her voice and spoke "very passionately," she did not physically threaten Synek.

"It was packed and the other customers turned to watch," Synek said. "It was pretty humiliating."

How brave of you, but why would anyone buy into the words of some who openly admits that they're stupid enough to be tricked into being a self-destructing baizuo? Only someone stupid enough to think that all people of the same skin color are identical could "reason" themselves into that corner. If you as an individual don't see merit in yourself and assume that you've only got what you got because of racism then thats your problem as in individual, don't blame my skin and bones for your personal inabilities.

I'm going to split the difference between these two extremes and say that while white privilege exists, its current effects insignificant compared to the power of money and influence. Being rich gives you minimal punishments (or none at all) for all crimes, being white just means you're more likely to be given the benefit of the doubt for petty crimes. Some white people might also benefit from the residual effects of Jim Crow segregation (which is the real era of white privilege) but that effect is uneven and fading with time, while being rich will get you benefits regardless of era (unless you're black during segregation, then white people will just burn your money, see the Tulsa race riot). So in modern times being wealthy is way more important than what race you are, that only really matters if you're poor.

Introduce a codified civil law. First world style. This way the judicature is no longer arbitrary and bribe-based as it is in the US and the UK, it has to obey proper laws and rules like in Europe or China. This makes legal expense insurances possible. These insurances are rather common in socially developed countries, but practically unknown in the primitive and corrupt judicial systems of the Anglosphere.

Almost every man I've met who went out of their way to complain about women being too picky, gold diggers, etc., was either an ineligible bachelor who had their sights set way too high, or had their hearts broken multiple times.

How convenient for you that you're a successful millionaire who conveniently met your wife before you were wealthy, yet you still feel compelled to visit us on 4chan to tell us how awful most women are, but no sir, you're with a wonderful woman AND you're super successful! Basically, part of your story is clearly a load of shit, but keep trying to convince us you're living the life.

Also, the entire premise of your original post is idiotic. What the poll found is that wealthy, successful men marry at a higher rate than less educated, lower income men. What a shocker! You know what else is true? Overweight women get married at a lower rate than skinny women, and are promoted at a slower pace than skinny women. It's almost like being attractive, intelligent, and successful makes people look like better suitors than being ugly and unsuccessful. Who would have thought that people are shallow and want the best partner they can find?

The American College of Physicians says its mission is to promote the “quality and effectiveness of health care,” but it’s stepped out of its lane recently with sweeping statements on gun control. And that isn’t the only recent foray into politics by medical professionals. During my term as associate dean of curriculum at the University of Pennsylvania’s medical school, I was chastised by a faculty member for not including a program on climate change in the course of study. As the Journal reported last month, such programs are spreading across medical schools nationwide.

Why have medical schools become a target for inculcating social policy when the stated purpose of medical education since Hippocrates has been to develop individuals who know how to cure patients?

A new wave of educational specialists is increasingly influencing medical education. They emphasize “social justice” that relates to health care only tangentially. This approach is the result of a progressive mind-set that abhors hierarchy of any kind and the social elitism associated with the medical profession in particular.

These educators focus on eliminating health disparities and ensuring that the next generation of physicians is well-equipped to deal with cultural diversity, which are worthwhile goals. But teaching these issues is coming at the expense of rigorous training in medical science. The prospect of this “new,” politicized medical education should worry all Americans.

The traditional American model of medical training, which has been emulated around the world, emphasizes a scientific approach to treatment and subjects students to rigorous classroom instruction. Students didn’t encounter patients until they had some fundamental knowledge of disease processes and knew how to interpret symptoms.

Do you have a source for the study on negative bias in patient care? Having volunteered at a county hospital emergency room for a short period of time, the only times I saw bias in care was when a patient had a history of drug seeking, was belligerent, or just outright rude to the overworked physicians. I guess I am just curious on the controls used in the study, like were the patients all visiting for similar reasons (Trauma, OD, infection, etc.), GP v Emergency room, etc. All of these can heavily skew the results

>>460302
I think that whats really going on is women get better care than men, but women are such terminally unsatisfied, demeaning crybabies that their superior level of care is still not good enough for them. They'd probably get a better grasp on reality if their enablers didn't let them get away with the incessant selfishness, thats my opinion.

You might be about to reeee over >muh anecdotal evidence, but I know countless women who have stories about not being believed by doctors. A lot of them have issues like chronic fatigue syndrome, hormone imbalances, depression, etc, and doctors (even female doctors) just tell them, "You're talking shit; you're just imagining it." It's an absolute disgrace. And yet, once they eventually meet an actual expert in that field, the expert always agrees with them that they do have the illness after all. I've got a friend with Behcet's Syndrome, which is pretty rare, and it took her years to be diagnosed with it.

However, on the other hand, my dad had kidney failure a couple of years ago and nearly died. My mum took him to several doctors, and they each just shrugged and went, "I dunno? Eat more vegetables?" until my dad collapsed and was taken to hospital literally a few hours before he would have died. So the issue might not be >muh women are victims, but rather that doctors frequently have no clue what they're talking about and are unwilling to admit to this because they have a God complex. I'd like to see some research into gender differences between patients who have dealt with retard doctors. Maybe women have more experiences with doctors being clueless shitters, or maybe they don't.

Oh dear, it seems Microsoft has once again released a dodgy patch for Windows 10, with a recent fix – which was supposed to address the issue of Cortana and the search box causing spikes in CPU usage – actually causing more problems, with reports emerging that search in both the Start menu and Taskbar no longer works.

The patch, KB4515384, was released on Tuesday, September 10, and while it seems to have stopped SearchUI.exe from causing undue stress on processors, it appears that it has broken search in Windows 10 completely.

Users are reporting that trying to search for anything from the Start menu results in a blank windows appearing, rather than search results.

He's actually right, but for the wrong reasons. As the Republican party loses prominence, the Democratic party will undergo a schism centered around one issue or another, probably whether to implement fully socialist policies or not, and we will eventually be left with 2 major parties again. Likely the parties will be similar to what we see currently, with one favoring more leftwing policies and the other right wing. The US public is just too comfortable with a 2 party system

Not the point I was getting at. The point was we have one country who already said they would intervene if the US has another civil war. So, again, how would that be prevented?
But since you asked who says the whole of Texas is with you, who says the whole military would be okay with shooting their own people? Who says soldiers won't defect?

>And if they did would anything change?
*sigh* I feel like we have a failure to communicate here. That was a sarcastic question (hence the two question marks)... you do realize they had boats that could cross an ocean during the civil war, right?

The point... I'm trying to make... is the only reason no other country interfered during the civil war was because of slavery. Otherwise you can bet your ass England and France would have loved to see the US divided.
