Wow a top ten, I've tried to make one before but its so dependent on the mood you're in. Thats an evil question to ask Eve. I'll get back to you on that in about 10 hours.



On another note, I finished Overman King Gainer last night. Started as a typical Sunrise Mecha series....... and ended as a typical Sunrise Mecha series. Not being the biggest mecha fan, it got old about half way through. There was literally a boss fight every one of the 26 episodes. If that's your thing, you might find this one worth a watch. I just wish there were some fillers in there to flesh out the characters a little more. 6/10

Not even sure if I need to spoiler it, but whatever... (Click to show)
He had a cup of water in his cup holder during the delivery. As long as he didn't spill any of it, the tofu had no chance of getting ruined.

I'm not so sure about that.
The president dude paid people from all over the country to come to the capital and protest against the opposition. Several times with enough people who confessed that they got paid for it.
And even if most of them like the governments decisions, why aren't they getting their asses up and do something against the opposition? Preferabley something that doesn't involve violence :P

I don't think that Russia is the better choice. In fact, I think that EU and Russia equally stupid options. Okay the EU does have one thing that makes it better than Russia...they don't have an insane dictator as their leader.

I don't like the article that you posted there :/
And does the context really matter? Do you think that the government would actually remove these horrible laws after the whole "revolution" is settled? Not in a million years. They would just keep them.
I know that you think that manipulating the media is fine in some situations, but you also know that I super don't like schiit like this :D
Yup, the did the same thing. Was it okay? No.

Or the government could just do what the protesters want them to do. If the people like the government so much they will re-elect it in a new election and if that is settled nobody would need these stupid new laws any more.


I don't know where you are getting your news from, but here in Germany, every newspaper etc is writing that opposition is leading a violent protest. Not a single word about the government being to violent. Okay, maybe not toooooo violent.

I wrote this in a rush so.....♥

 

You are the only person here in this thread I can have a fun time with debating about stuff like this. Skim through it or whatever, but please let me know what you think. I'm going crazy in my life by how few people care about stuff like this.

---

 

A large portion may not be violent, but they are condoning it. Watch the livestreams and videos. Random people in the back get 'caught up' in the moment and also run up to throw rocks. Them being in that general violent area with all the others also more or less puts them at fault. You may not have shot the man, but when you are screaming at your friend to pull the tirger or that the guy he is about to kill is a dipschiit. You aren't exactly free of any charges. 

 

President dude? Paid?From what I read, a radical party in parliament is taking subterfuge acts against the authority. And it is the radical parties that are causing the laws and assembly to be delayed and it is them who are issuing all the promises of amnesty to the protestors and backing them.

 

Russian history with the Ukraine does make it a 'better' match in the sense that years of historical association and governmental types do help. Keep in mind that if the Ukraine went with Eurodomain, there would be a huge economic slump if not collapse. Some analysts argue that the benefits outweigh the cons. However, taking into account many other factors, partnering with Russia is the better deal in my opinion. Not only does historical association play into it, but also Russia has more suitable measures to economically and militarily help the Ukraine. The U.S publishes reports on military strength of groups worldwide. A few years ago, Gates, the chief dude of that report publisized a report that more or less said that Europe and the EU was practically doomed due to how little military strength they actually have. Notable of this would be Turkey, one of NATO's largest allies about to leave to NATO to join up with Russia and China. Turkey has expressed that despite being in NATO, the economic and military aid that Russia and China can give would be far greated to their economies. Keep in mind, that politics like this also have to play into future friendships. If conflict was to break out, it is undeniable that if the Eastern powers wish to, Europe would be absolutely gone due to the connecting land-mass of Eurasia. Each country is self-actualized and self endearing in their goals, they must promote them above anything else. With the current tension around the region, and how weak the nations of the EU are politically to key areas that the Ukraine wishes to partner with (Europe not having as much pull with former-nonEU Soviet countries) and in the Ukraines close proximity to Russia. 

 

A few years back, Putin publically said that any former Soviet state that joined up with NATO or the EU will and can face catastrophic consequences. There is of course nothing wrong with any statement from any country. People are inherently biased towards countries that aren't their own or have interests that undermine their own countries. That is a sad bias that people have, but its also a powerful weapon for humankind, in the sense that if we didn't have it, we may not be as far developed as we are today. From an 3rd party standpoint, its ridiculous, but it is helpful.

 

I don't like the article I posted either. I posted it as the first link to come up. EU may not say the protestors are bad but LOOK AT ALL THE ******** media here in the USA. Any time a protest happens or a rebel group (that hasn't been identified with Al Qaeda) has a rebellion of sorts. The media here paints the government in total absolute wrong. 

 

That of course is a problem with laws like this. But this is how politics work. The law currently means well, but it can be perverted yes. Look at Germany or USA political laws. Stuff like this happens all the time. Where a critical point in the country created a law that would have future ramifications. But guess what, lawmakers don't care about future ramifications. This is just politics, its business, no hard feelings. As a 3rd party person, like I said before, each country is selfish and cares for their own national interests. 

 

As a 3rd party person, manipulating media is as fun as watching anime. I see conflicts and the world as if I was floating in space, its something I've accustomed myself to do. In the sense that every thing that happens is just 'interesting'. This is REALLy the only actual way to look at conflicts. The only way to explain how this works is by history books. Notice how when you are in history class learning about stuff. You learn abotu centuries worth of material. Genocidies, despots etc. And you just quickly go through it? A law passed here, that was interesting, a genocide there, wow. Etc etc. That's how I view it. In that this is just a fraction of a moment of human and the world's history. It is just...interesting is all.

 

However as a person living on this world. Yes. Due to how globalization and human kind has affected media relations with the people of today, I have come to see that media has become a thorn in the side of the people. Where it has come to a point where media is tainted and taintable by everything. And thus rather than beliving in the will of the people, I rather choose to believe in controling them to make rational decisions.

 

The USA and many countries operations today were founded on the principles of not letting the common folk have any say on elections. The original USA founders saw letting stupid ass people having a vote in issues of national importance as stupid. That was good. But as time went on, and people became land owners and became smart. The USA and many nations changed their ways. The 40's to 70's probably have the 'smartest' people in the USA. It was ok to let people dictate what they saw. They were actually using insight and personal opinion and wisdom. BUT TODAY, globalization, and the pseudo natioanlization of media has created a class of people who rely on the propaganda they hear on TV to be their guide and holy master. They thus are not self-rational peoeple capable of worldly decisions today.

 

Here in America, every newspaper is writting in support of the hero's of the Ukraine and their non-violent protests that police and military are savagely killing and maiming wihtout any care int he world so that Ukraine can partner with Russia for nuclear weapons and to hide Taliban, and is denying so so many people of the Ukraine the right to join the Ukraine.

 

That's literally the jist of it. Notice all the 'spark' words I used in that

Sure

 

Media in general has come to a point where it is literally controlling people. And the Ukraine government - while having made bad decisions in some of the early moments of the protest - is for the most part in the right. Their decision to partner with Russia has future ramifications that would not only save the Ukraine economy right now, but also give Ukraine legitimate military 'aid'. The location of Ukraine right next to Russia and other Russian friendly countries as well as its former Soviet-association more or less Russian ties better than EU ties.

 

The current problem in the Ukraine - through a short version that isn't 100% accurate - was through radical groups and members of the public that would rather go EU-ties than Russia. It is unknown if the protestors know of the immediate problems of Eurodomain. Most of the Ukraine public supports the governments decision however. The protestors, while not in the mass minority, still represent a smaller percentage than those that prefer Russian-ties. 

 

Is that short enough? Need any clarification?

Politics, generally about the recent protests in Ukraine. Can't really tell any specifics, since I usually don't read such huge posts on mobile. They'll wait until I get on my PC...

 

Basically, nothing you might be interested in, I'd guess. :-P

I watched the first two episodes of it and kind of lost interest since it looked like it was just going to be a mediocre body-switching show.
Is there more to it?

That's kind of true. If been to many many demonstrations in my life and I know too well how things like this can escalate. I'm always trying to stay away from these hardliners. Nothing but trouble and people with one-sided minds.
The opposition admited that at least two of the dead protesters were not killed by the police.

Given that is true, why are people even considering hooking up with the EU if their country would be tossed into darkness and despair?

Statements like this one make him so so much more unlikeable....but I have the feeling that he doesn't even care about what the rest of the world is thinking about him.

It really is. There is no right and wrong in politics, only more and less acceptable.

Which is super weird since they have all the informations one could ask for easily available to them. It seems so hard to avoid being swamped with news nowadays but somehow people still seem to manage being super not up-to-date with what is going on in the world.
For example some of my fellow CS students. They don't have the slightest idea what is going on in the world. Makes me want to slap them in the face.

Are we talking about Fox News or a serious news source like Wall Street Journal or New York Times?
Either way, that sounds horrible. The statements from the US government on this topic are waaay more harsh than the once coming from German politicians.

People don't know schiit today

 

Statistics show that people today don't know schiit about politics, ramifiactions, future effects, and what not today. Half the people in the Wall Street Progress probably didn't even know schiit.

 

Partnering with the EU won't throw it completely into despair obviously, but EU laws of economics would have huge ill effects on Ukraine economy. But if all goes as planned, it will come out fine. The problem with that is that nobody knows IF it will even go fine.

 

Putin is someone I look up to. Remember, no right and wrong. Putin's bad assery statements, and his recent actions in the last decade make him an icon for me. He does'nt fu***** hide that he will do whatever it takes and that he controls Russia. He doesn't hide it. He makes bad ass statements and gets stuff done. Russia's economy, and social life has improved by mangnitudes since he took office. He is the Arnold Swarchenegger of Russia. He will **** you up, and doesn't care. He will get his way and it will be done. However, the thing I love most about him is that he is a rationale being that makes compromises while still getting stuff done. Obviously, Russia still isn't completely reinvirogated, but compared to before he took office and before he became the ruler. Russia was a desolete place post 1991.

 

Fox News is the worst. but WSJ and NYT has bias as well. Fox News bias is much easier to pick out and call it as true bias. WSJ and especially the NYT use plausible deniability of bias. Their usage of bias can be argued to not be bias by them, but any historian will tell you that its bull schiit. 

 

Examples being that Fox News will literally feed you B.S that isn't true or analyzed upon, but they can get away with it due to USA laws about news corporations / entertainment industry. Read any article on Gay Marriage from Fox.

 

NYT will use spark words that instigate internal thought of something bad. They use carefully selected facts and info, and push the info on you using those 'spark' words and thus it creates images in your mind. The example being NYT and most Western media calling Russian and Chinese media as State Media all the time. This is plausible deniability in bias. They can argue that its true. Yes it is true, it is state media. HOWEVER, any analyzation into why they use the word and why they use it so prevelantly more or less yells Bias. State Media is a spark word that doesn't innately draw bad ideas or associations, but with globalization and indoctrination, has acome to incorporate something being bad. This creates the plausible deniability of bias. Because seriously, if they can call others state media for being owned by the government, I wonder what other countries can call the American media that feeds out of government hands./
