To all of you people claiming that things will get better under Biden:

What do you think the chances are that the federal government under democratic leadership would take responsibility for federal jackboots gassing the people of portland? Paying reparations? If you think the answer is anything other than "jack shit" consider what it's taken for vietnam war veterans, and gulf war veterans to get any sort of acknowledgement of the damage done to their bodies with agent orange and depleted uranium, respectively.

Things don't "get better" when the fascists in power stop gassing human beings.

Things "get better" when the conditions that led to the situation we are in now are rectified.

@awfulawfulthings I want to be very clear that I don't think ending cheeto benito's reign is a bad thing.

Just that I seem to see a lot of people with this idea that biden will fix everything, and everything will get better.

Stagnation is a pretty good description of what's going to happen, though.

@Anarkat okay then we agree. I'm all for convincing the libs how biden and the dems suck and also the problem, I've just seen this message several times and I'm not always sure if the poster's angle is "biden isn't going to magically make things better once he's in" or if its advocating for some kind of nihilism, non-action, or "it doesn't matter which it is" ideas.

@Anarkat and let's not forget 20 veterans every day see themselves off this plane of existence because the help and services they desperately need isn't provided. Also the homeless population in the US is estimated to be 15% ~ 30% veterans.

If they, either wing on the same bird, can't be bothered to actually care one bit about the people they publicly hold up as models of Americans, what hope does anyone have?

@kusuriya 100% agreed.

A lot of responses to "hey, biden is a shitty person" seem to fall a lot in line of "what, so you want to keep the fascist dictator?"

No, fucker, the choice is moot. It's not a real choice. We've been scammed into this position of choosing "the lesser of two evils" because every step of the process that might have given us anything resembling a "good" choice, was stolen from us.

I'm tired of having my fucking furniture stolen and being told that, actually. sitting on the floor is more comfortable anyway.

@Anarkat yep "Look you have to choose one of these guys to rob your house.

Could we just not rob my house?

WHAT ARE YOU SOME SORTA FREEDOM HATING COMMIE!

sigh I guess I pick the dude not wearing the swastika armband in public"

@kusuriya Picking between getting robbed by a guy who climbs in through my bedroom window in the middle of the night and shoots my dog, or a guy who robs my house by knocking on my door and very politely informing me that he's going to have to poison my dog and take all my things isn't really much of a choice.

@Anarkat lol. I'm voting for biden just to trigger all the MAGA people.

They can dish it out, but can't take it.
