  1. Which is exactly the same store, with the same shitty UX, but now in a full browser window!
  2. Hi folks. Apologies for the recent SSL certificate errors that were popping up on the site. Apparently the program responsible for renewing that broke on my server. I've been swamped with work and didn't notice until today. Everything should be fine now and no longer pose a problem in the future. Cheers!
  3. Well, not really, they kinda got trolled by some 50-ish year old grandmother (must be america at that age...) who got her tiktok followers to reserve tickets and it kind of snowballed... A good thing for public health I suppose.
  4. Well it's no surprise that the mostly democrat controlled cities have incidents. Most cities are democrat controlled, even in deep red states. Some of those headlines in the image are very odd though.. 1000 protesters did not clash with police and the secret service at the white house. The secret service (not DC police) just outright unleashed teargas and rubber bullets on them, also beating up anyone in their path, because the big orange baby with the tiny hands wanted a photo op.
  5. I wholeheartedly agree with this man. A lawyer who always tries to show both sides of an argument. What happened at Lafayette, beating, gassing and shooting peaceful protesters (including the fucking priest in charge of that church!), just so Trump could get a photo op.. where are second amendment goons now? This is _precisely_ what the second amendment was for.
  6. Hmm, odd. Then why the heck would Mr Fake News himself not dispute the claims? To be honest, this AP link is the only site that claims the lights were on that I can find. Most other news sites (including Fox) show the lights out.
  7. That was according to one of Trump's spokespeople. The lights typically remain on through the night, with an exception for the death of a president. If they had said "we turned off the lights to coincide with the curfew", it might have been a reasonable argument. This one was just nonsense.
  8. Right.. and done with this conspiracy theory bullshit. If you want to discuss the tensions at the Chino-Indian border, feel free to open a new topic. Without bringing up the protests in the US over the murder of a restrained black man by a man with a badge this time. Without linking it to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  9. Obvious racist post deleted. @LasraelLarson if I see any more of that shit again, that will be your last day on this site.
  10. And you just proved your own point. Deflect and deny. It's always someone else. I'm done with you. The corruption in the Trump admin is clear and well documented. If you're too blind to see it, fine.
  11. The American people expect a President, not some toddler. But then again, it's not Trump's fault entirely. Yes, he is an extreme narcissist, extremely insecure, a racist, sexist and unintelligent bordering on downright stupid. However, these characteristics get exacerbated by his dementia, of which he shows all the classic symptoms. Yes the Dems made an insanely bad choice picking Hillary as the candidate for 2016, any other candidate would have defeated Trump by a landslide. Many Trump voters regret their vote now, but hindsight is always 20/20. While many Americans might have expected T
  12. He holds the office, he never acted like a president. Even George W, who I disagreed with on policy matters, was a President.
  13. Trump has never been a president. He's treated the presidency as one long episode of the apprentice.
  14. Well, technically, no.. it's not that far fetched. Trump, his campaign and some of the extreme right wing media are already working on building the narrative that the election will be rife with voter fraud. Just like he claimed in 2016 by the way, to which even his own "special committee" nor the Senate couldn't find a shred of evidence for. With the current COVID-19 situation and states moving to send everyone absentee ballot applications to protect the public, he's throwing a tantrum for the swing states or democratic states (the traditional red states are fine obviously), even throwing in "
  15. Hi all, For the few of you who have ads enabled (thank you, it helps pay for about 2.5% of the cost of running this site), you might have noticed ads popping up that promote bitcoin scams. Since Google broke the Publisher Toolbar which allowed me to quickly ban those ads, plus the "blocking controls" on the publisher panel, I'm having a very hard time blocking them. I don't want those ads on here, but unfortunately I can't fix it right now. To those who don't allow ads: I understand, but please consider whitelisting the site and maybe occasionally clicking one. The cost of runni
  16. Well the spread really comes down to two factors: 1. How dense the population is. 2. How dense the population is. We're doing the social distancing thing here in the Netherlands. At first most people weren't taking it too serious, but now that there's fines imposed on gathering in groups (to the tune of 400+ euros for individuals), people are finally taking note and doing the responsible thing.
  17. My reply, yes.. about 6 hours ago
  18. Unfortunately I'm unable to investigate tonight. Will have a look tomorrow.
  19. Quick note, it might take a bit of time before it works for you.. please give it an hour or two.
  20. Apparently there was a problem with email confirmations (thanks for reporting it Doro). Fixed now.
  21. No, by not locking up people in massively overcrowded cells is how you are a decent human being. Or by not locking up underage kids or even babies in cages without proper healthcare is how you are a decent human being. Or by not constantly inciting hate. Or by making not constantly rubbing shoulders with billionaires while shafting the workers you supposedly care about at your campaign rallies. George W Bush was a horrible president, but he at least had a good amount of decency and moral fiber. Trump has none.
  22. I think Doro is referring to the fact that while many people over the past decade have seen their unemployment finally end (after the great recession), they're not seeing much if any improvement in their financial situation. The majority of the wealth keeps shifting towards the already wealthy. The overwhelming majority (>90%) of the wealth in the US is in the hands of the top ~10% income levels, with over 40% in the hands of the "1%" and with the GOP tax cuts of 2017 the balance shifts even more towards them, leaving a massive deficit Or to put it visually:
  23. Well.. this migration was a little ad hoc, true, but of slightly smaller scale.. they can hire me though
  24. Okay, we're back. The migration/upgrade process went much faster than expected. Unfortunately, during the upgrade process 2 posts were lost. One in this topic, one in the US elections topic. Sorry about the inconvenience.
  25. Soo.. time to kick this back up. Tomorrow evening will be the day. I expect to shut the forum down temporarily at 22.30 GMT. Expected downtime is anywhere between 15 and 45 minutes.
