Of course, but that's not the same thing. The hint is in the words "building up".
What you describe is also called progress. But can niggers 'progress'? You will be be hard pressed to find significant evidence of it. And no that one nigger with a PhD who discovered 'something important' is not significant evidence; it's an outlier.
Now add into the mix the wholesale adoption of the concept of white guilt courtesy of Jews and you have the perfect storm for the destruction of western civilization. Of course if you hate western civilization and everything it's brought you then its downfall would indeed be a sort of progress. But I have to ask what sort of revolution will it be when the cell networks and Internet fail and no one can Instagram that shit?
It's always easy to tear something down. Very difficult to build from scratch.

Manjaro. Previously had been using Mint and was happy enough with it but then decided to build a Linux gaming PC and on a recommendation in a forum tried Manjaro. The degree to which everything wasn't like pulling fucking teeth made me a convert.
Mind you that was a few years ago so things may have changed, but until there's good reason I'm sticking with Manjaro.

What does everyone think lies in the future of Reddit? by legendgamer320 in MeanwhileOnReddit

I still probably spend half of my browsing time there. IMO it's still the best source of kitty gifs and other amusing nonsense. But more importantly specific technical subs can be a gold mine when you need help or are just looking for information on a particular topic. And I regularly post comments when I feel that I can genuinely contribute to a discussion or asked question.
So, does Reddit have a future? Yes I think it does. With caveats:
When I do post I make sure not to say anything, even in jest, that could push buttons. The hivemind group think there is everywhere and I don't care how innocent a comment might have been if it goes against what's considered proper then you could be in for a bad time.
Censorship and promotion is rampant. Even if you just scan the headings you can get a very skewed take on reality. For example it's so pro-Bernie over there right now that you'll actually think he's a shoe in if all you read is Reddit.
Many posts and comments are fake, and it's not always easy to tell. Take everythingEVERYTHING you read there with a grain of salt.
I was on Reddit in the early days and recall fondly the heady sense of freedom and control. So it's especially hard to see what it's like now. Sites like saidit offer a refreshing alternative but not one of them has the same depth as Reddit, not even close. I would love to turn my back on Reddit for good because it really has become a cancer in so many ways, but not while it still has good utility.

Number of Muslims in Canada predicted to triple over next 20 years: study by REDISCOM in news
My wife was a refugee of civil war. Her family arrived here with literally nothing more but the clothes they were wearing and some paperwork. She and her sister had jobs within a day of arriving. She's run several businesses employing more than 100 people over the years.
I worked at a company for years that was only able to succeed because of the high quality immigrant labor pool it was able to draw on: Italians, Portuguese, Vietnamese, and Chinese mostly but also a few Poles, Hungarians, and Germans. The work ethic and devotion I observed daily from these individuals would put any Canadian to shame.
Later on they employed East Indians who were generally hard working but those muther fuckers stole like it was their job. I remember one pajet got caught red handed with a bunch of IP yet he turned around and sued the company for some thing I forget now. It went nowhere but christ you can bet that was the last time a curry eater was hired for a senior position.
Anyhow contrast that with the low IQ, west hating, baby machines they are currently bringing in by the boatload. Do you recall the so-called trained firefighters they brought in from Africa to help when the north was going up in flames? Not only were they not trained but they refused to learn. They demanded higher wages and ended up being paid more than the average Canadian firefighter, but they were still absolutely useless. Good job whoever it was that decided what Canada needed was to ship a bunch of niggers halfway around the world to help with the fire effort. Yeah, you're a real fucking patriot.
I disagree with you; In my experience (East) Indian doctors are low skilled (though there are exceptions). You seem to say that your father and brother are doctors, well when I talk to people that work in hospitals the Indian docs are at bottom of the list when it comes to, for instance, which doctor you'd want to perform surgery on you. "Incompetent" is the word most commonly used. A single example is not proof BUT when my mother needed emergency bowel surgery while out of province the Indian 'surgeon' assigned to her did more harm than good.
And the African doctors that are in the Medicenters are fucking useless. I go there to get scripts refilled because they are close and don't ask any questions, which isn't a good thing BTW. How they manage to get certified in Canada boggles the mind. Yet I know several highly trained Eastern European and Russian immigrants that were engineers and the like back home but could not afford to go through school again after coming to Canada. They ended up working mostly laboring jobs. These are the sorts of people that raise the standard of a country and that we should be helping, NOT some IQ 85 mud squatter whose idea of sophistication is a bone through the nose. I exaggerate for effect but my words are sincere.
Canada has clearly benefited from immigration BUT what we're seeing now is NOT THAT. And the notion that it's our duty to save the poor and disadvantaged of the world is the biggest load of claptrap there is. It's the lifeboat theory in action: If you keep pulling drowning people into the boat it eventually capsizes and everyone drowns.
The virtue signalling circle jerk woke idiots that are currently setting policy say it's for the good of the country BUT how? To shore up the labor pool? Ha! The vast majority aren't working nor do they have any plan to. Would you if you were given free money?
Bridge, as in burnt. As in you can't go back.
No, I knew what you meant.
Sure some of us are waking up, but I contend it's too little too late. Seriously, talk to any Canadian under 30 and chances are that they support what the liberals are doing. And if the person has gone to university then it's pretty much a lock. Not that I think any of the other parties of consequence would be an improvement. Meanwhile they're bringing in 1 million low or un-skilled welfare sponges per year and dumping them into communities in complete disregard of what impact it will have to that community.
I go for bloodwork semi-regularly and while I wait my turn I have plenty of time to count heads in the waiting room. Without fail at least 80% are some version of nigger that was clearly not born here. We have quite a few 2nd generation pajets but it's easy to tell them apart from the fresh off the boat crowd; for one they loath new migrants even more than I do.
And when I go to a medicenter the doctor is inevitably some graduate from Upper Congo U and is about as good at medicine as my dog.
The bridge, it's burned man.
That's the problem, our elected officials are already too 'woke'. And the trend is not going to reverse itself. Short of armed insurrection, but since it's Canada the chance of that is pretty much zero.
And the generation that is currently moving into more senior roles in the workplace and society in general is fully indoctrinated in cultural marxism even though for the most part they haven't a clue what they're talking about. It's all about feeling good about themselves because they are doing the 'right' thing AKA virtue signaling. Heaven forbid some low IQ uneducated half-human from sub-Saharan Africa or west hating Islamist not be given carte blanche to our welfare system, but the white establishment who's taxes are paying for it all can go to hell.
Nope, Canada is not going to recover.
Though there is hope that the corona virus will kill a good portion of the population. Just kidding... or am I?
Yup, that's gonna end well. Canada is already dead, it's just doesn't know it yet.

If I'm a ski instructor and pay all my bills doing it, am I a pro skier? by RatherSmallPotato in whatever
Well if you have a day job -- even though as in your case it's ski instructor -- and also compete in some races then you're not a professional.
You have to do nothing but compete to be considered a pro. Think of it as the professional athlete's job is competing, and when he's not competing he's training.
Now clearly there's grey area here. For example if you compete for a living but also happen to have a part time job for a couple afternoons a week to help make ends meet I would consider you a professional athlete. Likewise if you have a full time job during the off season but are still able to find time to train so that you're ready when the season starts again.
Olympic athletes can't be earning a living from their sport, ie. are not professionals. Only in this sense are they amateurs. The term as used here has nothing to do with skill, and clearly so because to compete at an Olympic level you have to be the best of the best. It only means they aren't competing for prize money or have a sponsor (yet).
A pro can become an amateur (presumably to go to the Olympics). And vice versa.
Hockey is an exception where they do use pros on the olympic teams. There may be more sports that allow pros, I don't know.
No, you're an instructor or teacher. You just happen to teach skiing. Professional in sports means that you compete against other pros and that you support yourself doing so. This is also why Olympic athletics are referred to as amateur.

If you're a reddit 'refugee,' why did you leave? by [deleted] in AskSaidIt
Well I haven't left Reddit, because I still haven't found a better place to start when I'm looking for help or suggestions on a specific topic. But even in specialized subs I have to watch what I say because even the most bland, innocuous statement can elicit unwanted attention. And of course sometimes it's too hard to resist the urge to troll, though admittedly it's very low hanging fruit and I should be ashamed of myself.
But the overt bot activity, blatant editorializing and pandering, and flat out made up content is irksome and disheartening, because I remember when it truly was a wild and free frontier and I miss those days.
Now Reddit's only real value, other than in specific subs as mentioned above, is as a good source of kitty gifs and the occasional breaking headline.

MOVIE REVIEW | The Red Pill by SierraKiloBravo in Documentaries
Because ideologists -- in this case feminists -- feel personally attacked when anything that runs contrary to their beliefs is floated. This is why you never get a rational, reasoned discussion going; just excessive, emotion laded, and often violent responses:
"I have well researched and supported data that debunks the Wage Gap."
"Why do you hate women, Hitler?!?!?" <picks up rock>

Agreed, all things considered it's a good documentary and well worth your time. Of course the irony is that the people it is aimed at ie. feminists refuse to watch it. Flat out refuse. They can't even have a discussion about the issues because their minds are already made up and fingers firmly inserted in ears. In fact a good portion of so-called feminists that I encounter are laboring under the impression that feminism is still about equality, instead of the man-hating "take no prisoners" abomination that it currently is AKA 3rd wave feminism.
Anyhow I do heartily suggest to to check The Red Pill out, even if you think you already have an appreciation of the issues I am sure you will get something new from it.

The Leftovers, Season 3! Let's discuss! by Ash in Television
My aren't you a wealth of TV info. And it's all good, thanks man.
Yeah Dexter turned into such a dumpster fire. I stopped watching mid way through the season with John Lithgow as the baddie. By then everything that had made the first season so unexpected and engaging was gone. I didn't see the finale but after reading about it that's a good thing.
I've never heard of Southland but taking your recommendations to heart and d/l'ing as we speak. Good timing because I just finished The Boys -- only worth watching for Urban's English accent IMO -- and have been casting around for my next watch.
I have a recollection of The Shield falling flat for me and I know I've checked out OZ but can't for the life of me recall it, maybe I'll give it another look.
Speaking of cop shows have you checked out Bosch? I'm a big fan of the books and the casting of the lead is absolutely dead on. Seasons 1-3 are some great storytelling, but 4 & 5 starts to feel tired.
In the same vein are The Killing, The Fall, and The Bridge (both the US remake and the original Swedish?). All great, compelling viewing IMO.
Rubicon was an amazing spy/intrigue show, unfortunately they only did one season which is especially upsetting given all the set up they did.
What is the name of the German P&R show? That's something I'd love to see, hopefully I can find it with subs.
Never heard of Z Nation or Captive State but have added them to the list. Thanks!
The Strain is a tad rough around the edges but good story telling and I always enjoy Corey Stoll. It's hard to make a show about vampires and have it feel fresh but they manage it in spades. Still haven't seen season 5 though so maybe they mess it up, hope not.
I have to mention Los Espookys in case it didn't hit your radar. One of the most fun, dumbest shows to come along in forever. Call it a guilty pleasure but I enjoy the heck out of that show. Angie Tribeca was also a lot of fun but they should have stopped after one season.
I'm trying not to get excited about Watchman -- too high expectations and all that.

6 Feet Under was so special but now that I've been thinking about it I have to wonder how much of that will seem hackneyed or overdone now. I can't talk details without giving important plot elements away, so I won't. But since one of the leads went on to be Dexter it might be hard to watch 6FU and not see him as that character, especially since he was so fresh and understated in 6FU. IDK... if you do try it again I'd appreciate hearing what you think.
I could not get into Lost at all and if I'd known that the same guy behind it did Leftovers I probably wouldn't have tried Leftovers. Sometimes less informed is better ;)
I tried Ray Donovan but it seemed so cliched that I couldn't get into it. Should I give it another go?
Too bad about the Sopranos. It and Parks and Rec are series that I can re-watch endlessly. Interesting that Edie Falco and Francis Conroy (the mom in 6FU) annoy you. Conroy also plays a psychotic mom (or aunt or something like that) in American Horror Story. Playing to type?
Another series that I unexpectedly became very caught up in, for a few seasons at least, is The Affair. After the 1st episode I was prepared to dismiss it as just another night time soap opera but after a couple more eps. it became quite a bit more. Runs out of steam by the 4th season though, but up til then I found it a very satisfying and engaging watch. I am a bit of a sucker for Dominic West though.
Speaking of have you tried The Wire?

I had no idea the S&G covered Feeling Groovy. I'm with you, the original is a better listen.
Just a heads up on 6 Feet Under. After the first 2 (or maybe 3, it's been a while) seasons it gets bogged down in personal drama and conflict that gets wearisome. In fact I stopped watching and hadn't planned to finish the series until I read a post on-line that described how awesome the final season (6?) is. Since I knew the characters I was able to start watching at 6 and I don't recall ever feeling that I was missing important backstory from the seasons I skipped.
The mom is not very likable, the casting is spot on IMO.

Season 2 is all over the place but I think they really pull it together in the end. It's actually my favorite season.
Season 3 is a bit drawn out but I think but the ending is up there with 6 Feet Under for Best. Finale. Ever. Unfortunately about 1/2 thru S3 the quality of music choices drops off. It's still pretty good and overall I can't think of another show that does a better a better job of the soundtrack. But the music for S1 and S2 is jaw droppingly awesome IMO. Hardly an eps. went by that I didn't stop mid-eps. to google the songs.

A nice happy little morality tale to remind us that no matter what bitches are toxic and you'll end up dead.

Yeah the number of actual killings is probably closer to a quarter million, and includes groups besides Jews. I mean that's still a lot of people, though not nearly 6 million and far far less than the loss of lives in Russia and China due to Communism.

Hot Rod comes to mind, I laughed like a fool all the way through. I haven't re-watched because I'm afraid I'll not find it as amusing or at all.
What was your most memorable time using public transportation? by flippermode in AskSaidIt
In that case I'll stick with "niggers".
If I replaced "niggers" with "african americans* is it still racist? Honest question.
The last time I rode the bus I was scared for my life because of all of the niggers. I would not recommend it to anyone.
Earliest memory of your life that you still remember today? by Vulphere in AskSaidIt
I have a vivid memory of laying in a 'basket' on the unfinished floor of what was to become my sister's room in our new house while it was still being finished. The winter sun was streaming through the window.
Years later I described this to my mother and she said I would have been about 6 month old at the time and since my parents were going to the house, and taking me with them, on weekends to help out it's entirely possible.
Otherwise my next memory is from when I was about 3 1/2 years old.

Best thing I've seen this year. These learned grey beards talking about climate change is nothing less than delightful. And probably something we can learn from.
Truth Vs Lies About Flu Vaccines *Updated* by Tom_Bombadil in conspiracyundone
This guy makes a lot of claims and throws a lot of data at you in support of those claims but everything is half baked and extremely one-sided. And his conclusions are prejudicial rather than final. I'm not saying he's wrong but I'm not taking everything he says as gospel either. Having said that I haven't had a flu shot for years.

I love it when the trailer tells the plot, so now I don't have to see the film. Thanks!
Nothing is More Racist Than the War on Terror: This weekend Americans were outraged over an incident in which a mob of white kids taunted a Native American elder in Washington, DC. Racist ignorance is the signature of the nearly 18-year long War on Terror that a majority of Americans support. by Orangutan in WorldNews
You mean the incident where the native american -- who turned out to be an actor from a previous encounter -- harassed the white kids?
Joe Cocker "Fire it Up" Live in Cologne - This nearly 2hr show was about a year before Joe died allegedly from lung cancer, his weight, breathing and skin color are good nor does he look to be the grip of a debilitating illness, maybe he was the victim of Randy Quaid style "Star Whacking!" by Dillinger22 in MartinTimothy
40 cigarettes a day his whole life not to mention the drinking yet lived to 70. Yup, definitely his death was the result of a huge conspiracy. Fucking jews.
Also that performance is just sad.
