The worst part is the way spanish gov handled it. Usually only the really passionate would go vote for independence but now because of how they handled it way more Catalunyans will go vote just because of the chaos and brutality. Catalunya can also just say that if the first vote fails they can have another one because many voters got witheld from voting because of the riot police. I just can't fathom how incompetent El Presidente is.

Special mention should go to the King too, who's making a case for a Republic by not saying or doing a single fucking thing while the country basically crumbles around him.

“We have a lot of mental health problems in our country, as do other countries. But this isn’t a guns situation."


-Dozens killed with guns, again, but not a "guns situation"

-IS a "mental health situation" but still won't support improved or cheaper healthcare, mental or otherwise

-Other countries have mental health problems, but don't have mass shootings every few weeks

-Other countries also tend not to have legal guns or regular gun massacres. Who'd have guessed these could be correlated? Oh sorry, forgot that this wasn't a "guns situation". Who needs facts anyway?

-Goes on to say "at least someone was shooting him back" essentially. Would literally rather have people shooting each other than no one shooting anyone.

-Of course insane white people should be allowed guns to shoot each other with but sane muslims should not even be allowed in the country.

-Insane white people who kill people are mentally ill. Insane muslims who kill people are dirty terrorist scum and should be executed.



How is this shit even real?

Yeah well, it's totally a guns situation, everyone and their mother knows that. Unfortunately there's no easy solution here. Way too late to stop selling guns or taking peoples guns away which is their only way of feeling safe/in control. Denying the gun problem might just be something to help them cope with it. It's tragic but there's no way of solving this.

No way of solving it overnight, but maybe if they started doing something instead of burying their heads in the sand 20, 30 years down the line we could see actual solid results. But of course the problem is, even though we're probably the species with the longest attention span on this planet, it's still on average a very low bar  :face-normal. Most people just won't care about a problem that doesn't have an instantaneous solution. See also: global warming.

Yeah but I think gun control is much harder for americans than global warming because theres a much bigger sacrifice to be made. Also because theyre not just giving up their guns. Theyre giving up their false sense of safety.  Also theres so many guns in circulation its just ridiculous, not even 30 years would be enough for. Even if there was regulation, people can just hide the guns they already have and bad guys will still use them anyway. Theres never going to be gun control. It can never be the way it is in europe.

So the Italian Prime Minister visited the town of Carthage in Tunisia and said that there have been "ancient relationships" between Rome and Carthage that eventually "bloomed in a beautiful friendship".

You know, Carthage.

The mortal enemy that Rome fought in three wars, the last ending with the sacking, razing, and salting of the ruins of the defeated city  :face-rolleyes.

Reminds me of how the UK acts super friendly with all the former colonies as if it didn't brutally colonise them and is now bitter about immigrants from them, but still thinks that without immigrants it's the biggest superpower in Europe and then wonders why everyone doesn't climb over each other to do business with it

I suspect the whole affair was more very unfortunate choice of words rather than outright ignorance - and that by friendship they meant the modern relationship (which, huh, I wouldn't define a beautiful friendship either, but hey! Diplomacy-speak). Still, it was a really stupid thing to say :face-rofl.

That would work more with Lybia or Somalia. If we went by Roman logic, y'all people were our bitches back then  :face-rofl.
