    Now I'm curious how much you earn On a more serious note, based on what is said and what I see/hear in the news here in Europe I'm quite convinced that Trump crossed one or more lines he shouldn't have crossed. But I also think it's true that, like he said himself, he can shoot somebody on the street and get away with it. There are 2 ways I see Trump leaving: 1. He has a health issue, so can't continue; 2. Republicans will stop supporting him because of a reason and will help getting him impeached. If they see he is losing, they will, like almost all politicians, just say they never really supported him

    True, I've always wondered why Presidents are term-limited and other public elected functions are not, in almost all countries of the world; And having it a little longer (president 8 years, other public functions 16 f.e.) isn't that bad, since experience is a positive factor - and almost all becoming president already have political experience - but too much increases the chances of corruption.

    Well, I think everyone knew already that there aren't really high chances that Trump will be impeached, because around 1/3rd of Republican senators will have to vote in favour. As long as Trump doesn't do something really stupid, which can't be denied/ignored ánd also alienates a huge group of the republican voters, a senator will commit political suicide by voting for Trump. And since most politicians are attached to their power and have that power by the grace of their voters, they won't quickly vote for impeachment. And some will/can be persuaded, but not enough. The question is, if you truly believe Trump is misusing his presidency for personal gain at the cost of the USA, should you start, even if it is with only a small chance of succes, such a procedure. I'd say yes. I'd prefer a politician that does what he believes is good for the country instead good for himself. Though a part of the democrats will probably do it for personal gain. No difference between democrats/republicans i guess

    Just Another Day in Monetezation

    Come on, this one isn't a change from the past, they quickly started selling virtues after going F2P and I was surprised they didn't introduce these right away. If you didn't see this one coming, that's just a little weird...

    After I wrote this I played a part of old Anorien (okay, not MT itself...) and that isn't much content/area, so I sure hope it's bigger

    I guess it's happening...

    Well, in the last update we saw Elrond and Arwen travelling towards Minas Tirith; They just crossed the misty mountains

    The FPTP system can create very strange results this time, especially with the Brexit Party as an uncertain factor; If they go all in with "we CAN deliver" they eat away votes from tories mostly When I look up a recent poll, these are the percentages: Conservative: 36% Labour: 23% LibDem: 18% Brexit Party: 12% Green: 6% Other: 6% If brexit party grows with 10/15% it can be anything as a result

    why do they say then that they won't do one instead of we have one? And calling people traitors on a referendum that is by law advising and not binding, where options aren't binary, but because multiple options won't work in a referendum they are put into a binary option, where only 73% voted, with a 52/48, thus almost split result, and those affected most (younger people) had the lowest turnout (yeah, their own fault) and both sides, but leave more than remained, lied about the effects, is just stupid. I still think they should respect the referendum result, even though I'm convinced it isn't a good decision for the UK, but not respecting it gives also a shitload of problems and distrust. And I don't see the problem in delaying it a little more so the deal can go through the lawmaking-process in a normal way instead of a rush. It is one of the most important laws in recent UK history after all. And if this won't pass it will probably a hard brexit after all beginning next year.

    Well, they fear it's the start of the reunification of Ireland - which I do understand because there will be some sort of difference between NI and the rest of the UK; And yeah, they have that decision, but as I understand it, Sinn Fein must also agree or something like that; Though I've seen a lot of different versions, so not totally sure what the current idea is. There is a huge chance that this solution will prove to be eternal in practice, a.k.a. the backstop just renamed. And it could also just be a way to get more UK-money to NI

    Minas Morgul Preview

    Well, the idea to see Dor Amarth ~3.000 years before Mt. Doom erupted and be a part of the last year of the 2nd age is a nice one; And it looks better/friendlier than during Mordor based on a quick scan. But the total area feels small. I think, based on the map and seeing the size of Minas Morgul on the map, that the Morgul vale is larger than Old Anorien, but because it's probably a lot of mountains the accessible area is probably smaller. And now it's for 10 lvl's;

    Well, I don't think it matters, because I don't see the EU give an extension if there isn't a good reason for it; Because if there is an extension for 3 months, we will have the same shit all over again the last 3 weeks of january. I can see the EU agree with an extension if there will be a public election or referendum about the current deal, but just saying "parliament couldn't agree with the boris-deal, so please extend" won't be a good enough reason I'd guess

    Well, I think everyon e does some sort off discrimation, because we as human like to put things/people into definable boxes and we usually prefer things we know compared to things we don't know. And about the parties, I remember reading something about the parties switching from standpoints years ago, so what we call democratic positions were republican positions a long time ago and vice versa? Well, I think Greta Thunberg is used by people to steer the public debate and young kids are ideal for that. Even though I am certain that global warming is happening and that we are, at least partially, to blame for it and we can solve it/ the impact of it. And even if it's not true, transitioning to non-fossil-fuels will make us as western countries a lot less dependent on middle-eastern countries, which is positive. And I don't have the feeling I'm becoming a minority in my own country (okay, I'm a Christian and most of the Dutch don't believe in anything anymore, so I'm becoming a minority). Yeah, about a quarter of our population has at least 1 (grand)parent that is not from the Netherlands, but I have those kind of people in my own family. Heck, even our whole royal family falls under that definition. I believe the power of our small country is to deal with different backgrounds and cultures and merge them together. And yes, that gives problems and these days people prefer to focus on discussing about those problems instead of solving them. Left-wing is very good in ignoring, Right-wing is very good in shouting about the problem and neither of them is really solving the problem. Politicians...

    The thing I really don't understand as a dutch citizen, is that it will probably be Trump against probably Biden/Warren/Sanders; 3 out of 4 will be in their eighties if they fulfull their term, Warren will be 76 I think; And if I see them I really have doubts about their health (mental ánd physical). Is this the best you have in the USA?
