  1. Voting is a form of participation. I never voted until the 2018 midterms, after being convinced of a good argument in regards to voting for harm reduction. Still, though, I desperately want to abstain, and might jump back into doing so especially the more that each major political party does not represent the will of the people but rather corporate/powerful interests. Basically all I'm saying is there is a third way, accessible to anyone regardless of their standing, that doesn't enable, validate, or honor the garbage bulls#!t facade of choice and freedom that the powerful of the world feed to us to keep us in line.
  2. Huh? This isn't new. Michael Vick essentially broke the game from Madden '04 onwards. The only thing that's changed is the mechanic is slightly easier (but that still dates back a decade+ since they turned it into a button hold vs a button toggle) and that there are more dual threats in the NFL now than there were back then.
  3. I see OU winning this by either a score akin to 51-17 or 31-28.
  4. Partly offensive scheme of our opponents, I thin, but one thing to think about... this has been a yearly trend for Chinander's defenses. 2018 we had 6 sacks against Colorado, 2019 we had 4 against Southern Alabama, 2020 we had 3 against Ohio State.
  5. Jesus spent....let me check my notes, ah yes, literally zero amount of time trying to cast out or overthrow the godless 'enemy' government of Rome. It's always possible, but our system of checks is actually incredibly thorough and involves so many steps that it's entirely trustworthy.
  6. So your explanation of zero news coverage for Stacey Abrams (someone you specifically mentioned as an impossible to prove hypothetical mirror situation) being harassed, called racial slurs and having her campaign stop railroaded by white supremacists would be...? Seems at least 50% as newsworthy as getting hit with an egg. Yet zero major media coverage whatsoever across the entire world. I wonder why?
  7. Let's just say 15, 18, 21, 24, and maybe even 27 year old me would be mortified, judgmental and take great pity on who I am now.
  8. Best way to cripple the system is to stop participating in it and living by its spectrum and division.
  9. What does that have to do with anything? Do Biden and liberals condone dressing up like a gorilla and throwing eggs? What are you talking about? I thought the conversation was about media attention, not what politicians condone. I don't know about eggs, but Stacey Abrams had a campaign stop in Augusta disrupted by white nationalists shouting slurs and harassing her and other black female veterans. Go ahead and see if you can find any coverage or mention of it at all by CNN, CBS, MSNBC, NPR or ABC.
  10. Absolute bologna. Conservative and/or Trump supporters all across the country have committed all sorts of actual violence and actual racism without being several day long breaking news stories, and they're all way worse than someone in a costume throwing an egg. It's impossible to prove something doesn't exist, but let me try anyways. Have you heard John Martin Roos, Henry Slapnik, Frank Nucera, or Steven Martan? They threatened many federal officials with death (including Obama) and were found with pipe bombs, attacked their black neighbors with a knife citing Trump as their reasoning, and sent death threats to a representative, respectively. All charged and found guilty and did jail time. Here's the youtube search results for MSNBC + each of those names specifically to see if they demanded a lot of on air media attention. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=msnbc+john+martin+roos (no results) https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=msnbc+fran+nucera (no results) https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=msnbc+steven+martan&sp=QgIIAQ%3D%3D (two local news outlet results) I'll do you another one. When Obama was President, more than a few citizens had depictions of his being lynched in rallies and parades across the country. Let's take a look at how much mainstream media commentary there was on that... https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=obama+lynched Oh. Nothing? Damn, the liberal media is really disappointing they had a gold mine of breaking news headlines for days and didn't use it. Jussie Smollett created a hoax for media attention. They took the bait, but he deliberately engineered it that way, and it's hardly an apples to apples comparison. You definitely seem to be eating up this divisive propaganda s#!t judging by your "divisive" partisan language and perspective. I guess their stuff is working great on you.
  11. And when others point it out on the right, they have four or five people (you among them) claiming it's not true. You're exactly like them (and the media for that matter) in that regard of caring about and focusing on certain things far more than others. Side note, there's a distinct difference between activism-based bias vs natural ideology-informing bias.
  12. ...and? Major conservative media orgs have no issue spending days upon days discussing, dissecting, and discussing more bulls#!t nothing burgers such as The War on Christmas™‬, immigrant caravans, fearmongering about how the election was stolen, and Obama's birth certificate. Liberal media has a liberal bias? WHAT?!?!?! No way. Gosh I thought they were objective, fair, impartial and had no special interests other than informing us
  13. I guess "media and news organizations don't cover everything in the world and make choices about what they think are newsworthy while others make different choices" isn't nearly as compelling a narrative as "the media are silent about the things that really matter and discriminating against us"
