One of the first replies I saw to that tweet:

Property owners. Like in the beginning. It is brilliant, really, because then those who have real skin in the game direct leadership.

Those who don't have property can't vote others' property into their pockets.

If you don't like that then get good enough to own property.

Yeah, non-property owning peasants have no skin in the game. :slol:

I like how he says "like in the beginning".

Let's return to those good old days of slavery.

The gunman who killed five people including a prominent doctor in South Carolina was former NFL player Phillip Adams, who killed himself early Thursday, according to a person who was briefed on the investigation.

This person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly, said Adams’ parents live near the doctor’s home in Rock Hill, and that he had been treated by the doctor. He said Adams killed himself after midnight with a .45-caliber weapon.

2 kids under 10 in the list of victims, so grim :dread:

Those football head injuries really do some damage. You'd hope he didn't blow his own head off so doctors could examine his brain, but by the sounds of it a .45 isn't going to leave much to look at.

Edit: of course, he could have just been a wrong'n, but there's a clear link between CTE and people going crazy.

It's not white supremacy, it's making sure the votes of white people are more important (superior, if you will) than anyone else's. Why is everyone so worked up? :simper:

Genuinely terrifying both how mainstream this racism has become and how many Republicans view Fox News as not being far right enough.

Is this what they are calling this now?

I'm old enough to remember when people were calling it the Kalergi plan.

Really alarming that this is on national TV.

It's worth pointing out of course that this theory has inspired a multitude of white supremacist terror attacks.

"They're diluting my vote! My birth right as an America is 1 man 1 vote!"

You still have 1 vote you twat. Although I would argue that you should have it removed for being a cock.

My main takeaway there is Tucker Carlson's parents loved his brother more, and that probably explains alot.

Shouldn't put your skin in the game if you're not prepared to fight for it!

Thank you for your service *salutes*

Perhaps there is an upside to the fact that my generation will be simply unable to afford to buy their own houses

My plan if I ever get drafted is to use my programming job and videogame ability to get assigned a cushy drone pilot role where I can dissociate from the people I am murdering and not risk getting shot myself. Checkmate vlasoul

I think the only reasonable option is to place the only voting booth on the moon.

That way we know any vote is by someone who really wants to vote.

Could his argument not be used to stop people already in the country having kids? I mean when there children get to voting age they'll be diluting the votes of all the people who had been in the country longer.

Looks like Amazon have enough votes to block the big Alabama union drive, which was widely seen as a litmus test for the rest of the corporation's warehouses

So it goes.
