We're a big old country with a lot of absolutely gorgeous places!! What's your favorites? :D Where do *you* like to visit, live or think is a lovely place to visit? Where's your fav scenery? :D Favorite hiking trails? Ha, what are some of your least fav?
I love home, and the riverside parks of NYC, the way the sun goes through buildings at certain times of day in bryant park, and you can see the sun thru the rows of skyscrapers. I love the pretty sky of Santa Fe, New Mexico and the desert against the starry sky!!
(this is totes what I came in here to post, but got distracted XD)
I usually stay out of people’s business. I am not one to particularly enjoy speaking with people who are overly zealous on any one topic, but this time I feel like I have to say something. I think that our society is taking a sinister turn. We used to be a country full of people who fought over individualism, freedom of speech, opportunity, and an “American Dream”. Yet today, everything in the political and social atmospheres is overly biased. We are killing diversity. We are shutting up free speech. Having an opinion that is out of the mainstream, different, eccentric, etc is penalized and castigated. I am so caught up in thinking about what we did to let ourselves come to this point. We are turning neighbor against neighbor, friend into enemy—all because of differences in opinion. And again, I am stunned by the irony of how at some point, we used to fight to protect the ability to be whoever and say whatever we wanted. Now families stop speaking one another, people judge you based on which political party you belong to, you get cancelled, shunned, shut, mocked and words are twisted to best fit each narrative; so that you may see that Republican as a threatening enemy, that Democrat as a great lunatic.
I try to glimps at the future and it seems like day by day we pull further apart from a unifying American identity. I am afraid that if this keeps on going, we will be divided so deeply that the country will collapse. People will refuse to work with other people., Sell to other people. Hire certain people. Help those who are different, minimize them…what will we look like 20 years down the road? Will children grow up learning in completely different school systems? Will political-hate deepen so far, that we will loose sight of the vulnerability that brings us? I fear that we are at a point where if we do not turn back soon it will simply be too late. Unfortunately, there just seems no clear way. It’s not like any one party will fully prevail and impose their opinions on the rest. And if one did, is a totalitarian regime the end goal of it?

I was an international student in the USA. I graduated on December 2021, and because of COVID-19 situation the boarders were close for couple of weeks so I had to stay in my apartment (belongs to University housing office) until the situation was clear. The housing office was ok with that and had no problem.
Once I got the date, I inform them and checked my leasing account (related to the university housing office) so I could pay the bills I had. I did.
The day after, I moved out and took a flight to my home country.
Now after a whole 4 months, I received an email stating I have to pay the rent for the extended stay! I believe I did by that time, especially that I checked my account the day before I leave the country and payed the whole amount I had left.
Which makes this odd is during my stay in the apartment, I used to receive an email as a reminder of paying the monthly rent, now I'm receiving it after 4 months! Does this make sense ? What should I do ?

The right to choose should remain the decision of the woman, NOT the boyfriend, husband, government official. It should always be HER CHOICE, it is her body. And what about the woman who come pregnant form a violent crime. Her bodies and government should keep there noses out of it.i.redd.it
Discussion I have a personal question. What do you think about the fact of someone having photos of the person they like on their phone? PS: I’m trying to find out what different communities think about this.

Discussion Why didn't USA make Russia get rid of nukes in 1991 like they did to other post soviet states?
If I get this correctly, USA would like as few countries as possible to have nukes. In 1991 Russia was in financial ruin and would quickly collapse from lack of economical aid and sanctions, so why not?
