  1. They gutted the Voting Rights Act, purged voter rolls, closed polling places, removed ballot drop boxes, fucked with the Postal Service, attacked voting by mail, and ignored a pandemic...all to try to keep their Dear Leader in office...and they STILL lost.

    Also...refuse to let states count mail/absentee votes early to speed up the  process...then cry that the changing vote totals mean FRAUD ON A SCALE WE'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE!1!!!!

    Fucking fucks.

  2. There are two runoffs for Senate in GA in early January. I'll be volunteering on those two after giving myself a weekend off to celebrate and recharge.

    There's also a race in Alaska that hasn't been called yet either.  And there are more R Senate seats up for grabs in 2022 than D, so there's work to be done then too.

    Acting cabinet seat appointments can work for Biden now that the precedent has been set. Just having competent people who know what they're doing is a major improvement from the shitshow we've had to deal with lately.

    How on earth so?? He will still be President until january 20, no? What will stop him from leaving USA???

    He is one of the most un-alone persons in the whole country...surrounded by Secret Service.  It's not like he can just sneak out.  He can go on an official trip, sure, but I doubt that he can refuse to come back while serving as President.  He might try it but I doubt it would end well.

    Was the statement merely a sour-grapes throwaway line by a cantankerous candidate facing potential defeat? Or was it a signal that Trump might actually abandon—some would say flee—our shores and seek refuge elsewhere if he is routed by a Joe Biden victory?

    During my long military intelligence career I spent countless hours with my peers working on diverse “What if…?” contingency scenarios in complex locales such as the Balkans and Afghanistan. In these intensely personal environments, where clan or tribal loyalty is paramount, local and regional leaders, often with links to organized criminal activities and enabling transnational networks could be dangerously unpredictable. Judging from the array of personality traits gleaned from these and numerous other experiences, and correlating them to his current circumstances, to me Trump appears to be a classic flight risk.

    By Brig. Gen. (ret.) Peter B. Zwack

    I knew soon as Trump said it, others would see the possible truth of a President being a flight risk. Being a dumbass, Trump has already sabotaged any chance flee the United States.

    He also likes to keep telling the crowds at his rallies that "If I lose, you'll never see me again".

    You are not alone.

    The following is pathetic.

    VIPs are complaining that this 'mini whatever' should have been included with VIP.

    What does SSG do? They add a 'War of Three Peaks map table with teleporter' as a (gated behind purchase) VIP quest reward to a vendor.

    And what do the VIPs do? They are excited and forget they paid at least $20 for something that used to be included in their subscription.

    What did Paiz say again? 'You can throw them anything and they will keep paying'? He was right.

    SSG pretty much admitted to this way back when the Mordor expac levels were announced...they said on stream that "The Ultimate" version was for those players who spend money no matter what (paraphrasing) and they said it with smirks on their faces.

    Meaning that he's missing his checks. It speaks volumes that SSG can't / won't afford some Standard edition codes for media shills to check their wares. On the other hand, maybe they don't want them checked.

    Someone has been reading my posts here, it seems:

    <cut>

    Some never evolve past middle-school playground of fecal bullying and reactive mimicry. No wonder they conflate studying monkeys with insights into human beings, having pushed the boundary of human experience as far as they're capable of reaching.

     

    She's a loon.  Always has been.

    It's worth noting that Justin over at Massively is a known fan boy of LOTRO.  This article is telling:  https://massivelyop.com/2020/10/22/lotro-legendarium-is-lotro-at-war-with-orcs-or-with-its-playerbase/

     

    You're right, this is new for him.  Usually when he writes about LOTRO topics that deal with player complaints or controversy, he acknowledges the issue but ultimately comes out with a wishy-washy conclusion that lands on the positive side.  None of that here.

    (To be fair, he has been consistent over the years about SSG's abysmal communication skills.)

  8. I'd love to see that happen, but don't have any hopes that it will.

    The only thing I could see as a very long shot is maybe selling it to the GOP as a way to redeem themselves from refusing to even look at the evidence the first time. For all the ones who will try to distance themselves after the fact to salvage their careers, it could be a life-preserver.  You know, the "I disagreed with him in private" types.

    But again, it's extremely unlikely.

    SO Trump is saying he is leaving hospital and he hasnt felt this good in 20 years

    This sticks of a ploy to open everything back up, scrapping all lock down measures.  Nothing to worry about life back to normal.  Just ignore the 200+ thousand  dead.  No need for mail voting.  Cant help but feel this is the last gasp con to try and win the election

    So prove it tough guy...have Ivanka meet you at the White House entrance and give you a big ol' sloppy kiss.

    Later: OMG he got back to the White House and took off his mask to get photos of him standing there looking all strong and leader-like, and the closeup video shows him very clearly having trouble breathing, like he's needing to gasp for air and trying to hide it. 

  10. He was bored and demanding to go back to the White House, so the doctors gave him the joy ride as a compromise.

    They can't sedate him even for his own good without invoking transfer of power to Pence, which the paranoid ass will never allow, so they have to let the raging shitgibbon keep acting out.

  11. And it was only thru the work of a reporter from Bloomberg News that the info about Hope Hicks' diagnosis came out at all.  The White House didn't release that info until after it was made public by other means. 

    There's no way he comes out of this unaffected.  Even if he recovers enough to get back to the White House, the potential for heart/lung/neurological/fatigue after-effects is very real.

    I think you're right.

    Hahaha! Good, I hope it gives that arrogant, boring, uptight cunt Radsomething the aneurysm he deserves.

    That person is having a fit in a thread about Rohan housing in the Suggestions forum too.

  13. The thing that struck me was this new concept of "missions" that will be playable by one-two people for levels 20-130. 

    New system, people! (*)  THIS time, it'll be great, we promise!

    Also no mention of whatever the epic story is called now, and whether that will be free, or behind this paywall.

    (*) new opportunity for store items, like 'mission masteries" or some such - the new promotion points.

    A company staffed by incompetent and unambitious bottom-feeders with extremely low cost of upkeep but devoted fans with more money than sense would make the perfect front. They're not hunting whales, they're letting automated robo-whales chuck dirty cash their way through micro-transactions, and funnelling it back out as legit funds. I can see why they'd be concerned with an interruption to this conveyor belt that's part of a larger Russian oligarch money-laundering scheme, but not giving a shit about things like lag, chat issues, or bugs.

    Nice game you got there.  Shame if something would happen to it...

    We need you to do us a favor tho...
