Counterpoint: Woodrow Wilson sucked about as hard as it is possible to suck, his version of "progressivism" was garbage, and his racism was abhorrent to people of his own time (as was slavery in the century prior). He resegregated the federal workforce!…
Seriously, what are we even doing here, why is "oh he was a PROGRESSIVE" supposed to be a key argument here
Woodrow Wilson was a trash person and a trash president! The only thing that should be named for Woodrow Wilson should be actual trash bags!
The League of Nations? Trash! James McReynolds, one of the most anti-Semitic people to ever exist, let alone serve on SCOTUS? Trash! The Espionage Act of 1917? Trash!

Birth of the Nation at the White House? Trash! A. Mitchell Palmer as Attorney General? Trash!
If you are RE-SEGREGATING the federal workforce and supporting efforts to segregate streetcars and ban interracial marriage in DC, that's an indication that perhaps you're more racist than many of the people of your time (which was, again, the 20th century, not the 19th)
Princeton should absolutely take Woodrow Wilson's name off buildings, I will even help

I will not watch the squid show, why would I watch a show about stressful things when I could not do that
Counterpoint: I could just not watch this…
Again, what I want from a television show is to make me feel either "nothing" or "good"

Republicans want to regulate social media companies. Democrats want to regulate social media companies. They want to regulate social media companies in different ways, but they both want to regulate social media companies.
I see the argument that Republicans want *less* moderation (and want to force social media companies to bend the knee), which is both true...…

Also, Section 230 applies to all sites that contain third-party (as in your) content and permits any of those sites to edit/moderate user content and users as they see fit.

Peter is the Rock of the Church, Peter also denied Christ three times, once to a child, and also witnessed the freaking Transfiguration and responded with "this is a real estate opportunity!" And that's SAINT PETER, for heaven's sake.
(I will never get over Peter going from "I'm gonna cut off that guy's ear!" to "I don't know her" in like four hours.)

If you're a fitness influencer the last six hours of your life have been extraordinarily challenging. No one's getting influenced on here. These are the dark places.
