Moves to change the date of Australia Day, or ignore it altogether at the cricket, is pointless, divisive — and won’t help indigenous Australians, writes Jacinta Price.

"Over the past four years, the idea of conversation has come to seem, if not pointless, then like a prospect with sharply diminishing returns." @laurenoyler  on conversation after Trump

If you ever feel pointless just remember that they have made two seasons of a Snowpiercer series. So instead of watching the 2 hour movie made by one of the greatest directors starring Captain America, you can watch the same story get stretched out with added filler for 20 hours.

one thing the "free speech" discourse seems interestingly conflict about is whether censorship/deplatforming etc is pointless because it's ineffective and even counterproductive or so effective as to be very dangerous

Good news! President Biden has ended America’s cruel and pointlessMuslim ban. Encouraging to see as we work to restore the values of our nation. We will do what it takes to root out hate & discrimination as we continue to build a more perfect union, and we’ll do it together.

In today's @markets  newsletter, I wrote again why I think the idea of issuing 50-year or 100-year Treasuries is totally pointless. Sign up here. Hitting inboxes in a bit

The thing about prominent conservatives getting into pointless online tiffs with liberal celebrities is that only Donald Trump can do it well. Everyone else tries to “clap back” by saying like “oh sip your latte a little harder while you ride around in your LIBOsine,” garbage...

This seems an absurd and pointless hill for the U.K. to die on. Of course the EU’s permanent representative should be granted full diplomatic status, as its representatives are almost everywhere else in the world

Biden has been the president for almost half a day, why hasn’t he started a mindlessly pointless media feud with like Elle magazine yet for being “nasty” and not having “it”

Good news: After pointless histrionics, Trump finally signed the relief bill with unemployment, rental and food assistance, and an eviction moratorium. Bad news: Republicans are still blocking $2,000 for every American. Families need more help. This is about survival.

I proudly endorsed Bernie Sanders in 2016. Bernie’s endorsement of Joe Biden in this campaign reminds us that no matter who wins the primary, we must unite behind the candidate, otherwise the whole exercise is pointless. I’ll sure as hell be voting for Biden in November.

The fact that Trump has lifted President Obama's ban on elephant trophies being imported into the country is a devastating blow to the survival of these beautiful animals. It's savage and pointless. It breaks my heart.

This shutdown cost the U.S. economy $11 billion, including $3 billion in economic activity that can't be recovered. Let me repeat: The #TrumpShutdown  cost the U.S. economy $11 billion. What a devastating & pointless exercise this has been. : No more shutdowns.

Never abbandon prayer, even when it seems pointless to pray.

NEW YORK POST EDITORIAL. “Worse Than Pointless. All those hours of televised testimony plainly failed on their announced goal: to change American’s minds. Part of the problem is that Democrats already leaked the best evidence they had. More important, NOT ONE WITNESS OFFERED.....

Can't make this up.→ Democrats are holding a show vote to request access to the classified whistleblower documents. There’s just one thing...they ALREADY have access. They were literally able to view the documents in the Capitol today. This Dem Majority has become pointless.

Secretary Nielsen’s policies were cruel and unconscionable. A generation from now, we will still recoil at how America separated children from their parents and put them in cages. But make no mistake, a change in personnel is pointless — the problem comes from the very top.

BOB WOODWARD quotes John Kelly in his new book as saying of POTUS: “He’s an idiot. It’s pointless to try to convince him of anything. He’s gone off the rails. We’re in Crazytown. I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had.” Via

Trump ordered the end of DACA and TPS. Then he shut down the government. Now he’s holding federal workers hostage, saying he'll temporarily give back what he took away—only if we give him a pointless, ineffective wall he falsely promised Mexico would pay for. This is a bad deal.
