What was civics? I remember home ec (sorry jennifer, I used baking soda instead of baking powder in the muffins and blamed it on you even though you were nice to me), and I remember introduction to law, which included such overlooked basics as civil vs. criminal. But I don't remember there being anything called a civics class.

Your generation may not have had one.

Mine did. We learned such things as what the constitution actually means (independent of what any particular person or political party ever wanted it to mean), how various individuals and groups have perverted it over the centuries, what our rights and responsibilities as adults will be under the current model of US citizenship, the difference between criminal and civil law, the history of the Supreme Court, and other such essential facts of your existence as an American that would be highly detrimental to politicians today for you to know and apply any critical thinking to.

My oh my! That sounds like some kind of domestic terrorist training camp! For me, that stuff was covered in such a fractured and piecemeal way over time that even silly PSAs on the TV between my cartoons helped fill in the blanks. How ridiculous is that? At least they put a big emphasis on reading and writing so I could go back and learn myself later on when it seemed like something was much, much worse than people seemed to suspect.

I'd settle for gook, my point is I haven't heard anyone say "chinaman" since Back to the Future Part Three.

Anonymous 22/09/23(Fri)17:18 No. 2224 ID: d8ac5f

Technically, the orient would include asia minor, not just south east asia. Back in the day it might have been sufficient to call everyone to the east of western civilization, but nowadays it's like how brits consider subcontinentals to be "asians." That, too, is technically correct because the indian subcontinent is part of the asian continent, but it's much more useful to use specific terms like chinaman to refer to somebody specifically from china.

Even with "gook" you could run into autistic arguments about its mess of a historical origin. Although at least nobody is going to think you mean a turk or a sri lankan.

Someone called me out the other day for describing Afghanistan as middle eastern, because--geographically speaking--it is "asian".

My takeaway: gook refers to a wide ethnotype, but is more specific than "Asian" and also less inaccurate, and less dated, than describing non-Chinese as "chinamen" while being equally offensive to anyone it refers to. It's technically the more politically correct term for people of (southeastern) oriental heritage.

Should the United States ban all political parties?

And I do mean all of them.

If the US instituted heavy import tariffs based on the source country's equivalent environmental codes and practices... Maybe pride could save the world.

Quite the opposite. He immediately shut down domestic production, just as promised on the campaign trail.

When this thread started, gas was 3$ a gallon

Feel old yet?

Nah gas used to be less than $1/gal when I was a new driver. I had to learn about banking and inflation on my own, of course, because obviously they can't let children learn anything useful in the public fool system.

What's the point? The dnc and rnc are corporate shills that care about their reputations and money more than the people?

I'd ask you to put your argument into words, but you're either an illiterate manchild or an automated postbot.

The nonvoting count was still around 80 million in 2020. Eighty million people who think their vote doesn't matter. If those people wanted to get anything done, they could get it done while every partisan voter cried about it.

Votes matter, instead of letting other people choose your life for you, vote third-party--at fucking random if you have to, but get registered and fucking vote.

The+Red+Barron 22/05/16(Mon)08:17 No. 2201 ID: 7cb4c3

Honestly the government is rigged, but I still vote just in case I'm being schizo about it and it matters ever

Better than not voting.
