    You're right. It won't make him go away. It can't be fixed, he won under the current rules and you don't change the rules in the middle of something. Another rule is that we have a right under the first amendment of the constitution of the United States to free speech and assembly. That rule isn't going to be changed in the middle to make you comfortable either. We will continue to exercise that right. We do not have to remain silent in the face of racism, misogyny, sexism, homophobia and religious intolerance.

    That is a video of a Russian military exercise. Iskanders and Smerches....

    Is no one else here interested in wtf is the purpose of this military training exercise?

    Maybe it's a military exercise? Unless we're witnessing some sort of helicopter mating call.

    Straight, white male here. I don't care who you are, who you fuck or what you believe. As long as you are open to learning the shooting sports why would any of us care? We are united by guns, the only politics that belong with guns is resisting people who would see our homes invaded by swat rather than let us exercise our Constitutional right. Even further I don't care if someone hates guns, not everyone needs to like them but I expect them to be respected.

    >The use of ‘the people’ isn’t used in the First Amendment until it talks about collective rights. Collectively, the people of the United States have a right to assemble. Collectively, people have a right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. The phrase ‘the people’ is not used to refer to individual rights — to exercise religion, speech, and press.

    *Next on Judge Judy* *The plaintiff says his car was hit by a military helicopter during a training exercise and his insurance company doesn't believe him* *The defendant, the United States Army, refuses to confirm or deny a training exercise ever took place*

    sounds like just a regular military exercise then.

    It's just another military exercise I think. What's going on?

    I have DACA and even though we don't share the same beliefs u/thomastl1 I however agree with u/HasedAsparagus if that's what you really believe and want to do, run for office, exercise your vote, write letters and call your Reps. You matter in how this system works. That is the beauty of the United States.

    African American vote doesn't get out the vote and this is the result. Sorry folks, this is all on you. If you can't be bothered to exercise the one thing that makes everyone equal in the United States than there is nothing any of us can do to ameliorate your position. Minority voters stayed home. Sheesh....

    Just think of it as another military team building exercise, teamwork makes the d(c)ream work!

  • Celia Kautzer Reply

    You give up NO rights when you enlist. Including the freedom of religion. Ask any military chaplain if they gave up the right to exercise their faith while on duty. Ask any military defense attorney if their enlisted clients have the right to remain silent after an arrest by a military police officer. And don't forget that you took an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States." Nowhere in that oath did it say "and not be subject to it anymore." Drink that kool-aid.

  • Newell Reilly Reply

    In all seriousness I would not be opposed to a united front fighting the results. The country has never been to this point in the modern age and of we do not proceed with the momentum it will be back to the status quo and having younger generations indoctrinated with the believe that the government is too big and corrupt to fight so why bother. They do a fantastic job pushing the "I've got my own problems in life I can't handle taking on a new exercise in futility" narrative that quells the masses.

    **Two days ago:** > ["With [his age being] 31, I know he can [play on]," said Mourinho. "I know he can, I know he's a top player, I know he can play at the top level. I cannot make this kind of mental exercise of what is going to happen at 32, 33, 34 or 35.

    You don't understand the first amendment. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, ensuring that there is no prohibition on the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble, or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.

    The move will take place next spring, with Denmark and France also taking part in the huge military exercise.

  • Peter Doyle Reply

    Truest patriots in every sense of the godamn work i say. Willing to defend their country, and exercise their very rights upon which their nation was founded. Some may say this act and flag is disrespectful, I say the founding fathers would wave it proud as a gesture to how far the united states of America has faltered on its path regarding personal freedom and liberty. God be with you men and may you not receive article 15s for this and don't smoke weed til you get out.

  • Wyman Nader Reply

    Because voting is a right and people can choose to exercise that right or not. It's better to explain it with guns. The 2nd amendment gives us the right to have arms. It doesn't mean I'm required to have a gun, just that I'm allowed to have a gun if I so choose. The United States is about Freedom after all, if people choose not to vote then its perfectly fine.

    Well to be fair to Yudkowsky, Trump supporters (1) *do* pose a clear and present danger to the good order of the United States and the world, in that they *might elect Trump*; and (2) his preferred methods of dealing with disagreement, the presentation of evidence and the exercise of reason, *don't work* on Trump supporters.

    IT IS A MILITARY EXERCISE. THE MUZZLE IS NOT FOR THE SAFTEY IF THE SOLDIER, BUT FOR CIVILIANS ON THE GROUND.

  • Haven Macejkovic Reply

    No. I'm glad we won't do this in the United States. People should be allowed to exercise cultural, religious and ethnic freedom, as long as it doesn't trample on someone else's. These burka bans are insane. What's next Jewish skull caps and Sikh turban ban?

    Funnily enough India and Russia are doing a military exercise right now in Russia, Indra-2016

  • Robbie Bergstrom Reply

    Religious organizations have restrictions on political lobbying, so long as they wish to retain their tax-exempt status. The United States government recognizes the doctrine of separation of church and state and does not strive to impose undue restrictions on the free exercise of religion - which, yes, means the RCC is still free to discriminate against the ordination of female priests. And, of course, the US doesn't actually have any regulation of ordination at all, so if somebody wants to start a rival Catholic Church that does ordain female clerics, that's cool too.

    Having a "limp wrist" for PotUS isn't a bad thing. A smaller federal government with stronger state governments is a great structure for our country; in fact, that's the way that the United States was set up. Johnson isn't weak, though. He was a strong leader of New Mexico as governor and will exercise the same strength (within limits) as President.

  • Tad Zemlak Reply

    There's a laundry list of things the United States is awesome for, and this isn't an all-inclusive list: * Highway/Travel: getting around vast expanses of space isn't difficult * Markets: an abundance of affordable goods and services make high quality of life accessible for almost everyone * Government: a system of accountability exists (if the electorate is willing to exercise it) * Human Rights: Individual rights are codified and guaranteed, with recourse for violation And more! It's the best nation in the world, that United States.

Its true that companies can have their own ToS which prevent freedom of speech, but i personally don't believe in censorship so shouldn't esports.

  • Marge Brown Reply

    Perhaps I'm wrong--and I am welcome to being corrected--but isn't this already the case? An EU citizen can't settle in the United Kingdom unless he or she is employed (either by a company or self-employed), a student, or retired and having a sufficient income to support a reasonable lifestyle. Right? It was my understanding that these are the only ways to exercise so-called "treaty rights" and, otherwise, an EU citizen is only entitled to stay for 90 days visa-free, just like everyone else.

    Vegeria on Nogalitos has some healthy stuff (some not). Not too far from sw military. Chick fil a (south ros) salads are very tasty. Luby's at south cross if you can exercise restraint.

    I've never personally seen any large scale kind of military exercise, nor have I really heard of any in recent memory. I doubt they would do it in populated areas.

    No. Citizens United did not declare that money is speech. Citizens United said that you do not lose your first amendment right to free speech when you exercise your first amendment right to free association. >because those funding those candidates don't have actual votes in the election. Do I have that right? Yes. What are you accusing those outside people of doing? Making weaker arguments the stronger (with their money)?

    I don't know, but at the risk of getting all political up in here, I've been for Trump since day one. The United States is a business. It needs a seasoned businessman to run it, not someone from sales. The reason it NEVER gets better is because U.S. politics is an exercise in insanity. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

  • Isaac Bernier Reply

    I wonder if the US government believes it has a right to make aliens (and I mean extraterrestrials) pay taxes, if they happen to be conceived over the continental United States when their spaceship was busy abducting some hillbilly. Just an intellectual exercise, don't take it too seriously.

    There is a plethora of evidence that suggests foul play not to mention that the official story of what happened on 9/11 is nothing close to what the evidence shows us. And lets not forget the "military exercise" planned for that very same day that this happened on and ask yourself whether the United States, which has toppled democratically elected governments around the world to protect their own interests, really doesn't have the "ability to execute". Poppycock to your comment!

  • Kasandra Conroy Reply

    nail-on-the-head. Whiney voice of Dallin Oakes: I so want to live my religion as I see God has commanded me to. He says, "Kill faggots" so if you don't let me kill faggots, you are violating my free exercise of religion guarantee. It says so right there in the first amendment of the Constitution of the United States. And you know faggots were not even recognized as existing at the writing of the constitution, so it doesn't have anything to say about *their* rights.

  • Anika Macejkovic Reply

    He didn't retire because he was played out of position. That is what the media jumped on when he did retire. Scholes quit because he never saw England as being a serious competitive venture. He's spoken at times about training being a joke for England and some of his lower placed team mates treating the whole affair as an exercise in self promotion. He chose instead to lengthen his career at United. If he'd come out and said that in 2004 there'd be all sorts of crying about it in the media.

    Alright, how about family laws in the United States, more specifically California state law dealing with distribution of children. Or primary aggressor laws in states all across the country? Look, I don't want an argument, I'm just saying that they have as much of a voice as you do and they exercise it more. Shit sucks, man.

    He doesn't actually mean it. It's actually an ingenious training exercise. Trump is so committed to our allies in NATO that he wants to make sure they are prepared for all scenarios, such as what if hte United States were going to leave NATO becuase Donald Trump was elected President. He isn't actually going to do it, he just wants to make sure NATO is ready for it, shoudl he actually do it, which he absolutely will not.

    Political protesting in the United States. We're already seeing the government set up 'protest zones' where protesters are 'allowed' to exercise their right to free speech. It's only a matter of time before protesting is deemed dangerous and outlawed because of homeland security concerns. I don't even give it 50 years. Maybe 10.
