    Isn't there a page in this thread where you posted 5 or 6 videos that have very right wing viewpoints? You even posted a link citing the Tucker Carlson founded Daily Caller. You've got a lot of crust making this comment. it's only bias if it's not your bias, right?

    Minas Morgul pre-order

    Thank you Daybreak games for ejaculating your supreme generosity and benevolence on the unwashed masses(read 100 people)with your most justified and affordable pre-order bundles. If anyone gives them 130 bucks for this then I invite them to slam their own head in the car door several times.

    It's pretty damning to withhold foreign aid and then call up the President of that country and ask them to investigate your political rival. Trump is so cocksure that he released that transcript thinking it would clear him. Unfortunately for him it doesn't paint a pretty picture. Allow me to quote a recent article I read on this subject. It's a lengthy bit of text so I apologize. "Even if Trump hadn't openly asked Zelensky to look into Biden and instead only suggested that he had heard rumors of corruption regarding the Bidens and Ukraine, this call would be problematic. Because the United States is a global superpower which was, at that moment, withholding loan money from Ukraine -- a fact that the newly elected president of said country would be intimately aware of. That Trump just came out and asked for Zelensky to investigate the Bidens -- after reminding him several times of how much the US did for Ukraine!!!! -- is something very close to the textbook definition of a quid pro quo. Take it out of the context of politics. Let's say you are a small business owner who has seen an uptick in business thanks to a series of referrals coming to you via a much larger company. And the CEO of that much larger company calls you and says something like "We are doing a lot of good for your bottom line, right? More than you are doing for us. So, hey, our biggest competitor is apparently doing some pretty nasty things with their workers. You should really look into that." Now the larger company CEO didn't come out and say, "Hey, do this muckraking of our main competitor or else your pipeline gets cut off by us," right? But unless your brain stem has somehow disconnected from your brain, you know exactly what is being asked here. Do this, or else."

    More for your reading displeasure... "As set forth in detail in this report, the Special Counsel's investigation established that Russia interfere~ in the 2016 presidential election principally through two operations. First, a Russian entity carried out a social media campaign that favored presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Second, a Russian intelligence service conducted computer-intrusion operations against entities, employees, and volunteers working on the Clinton Campaign and then released stolen documents. The investigation also identified numerous links between the Russian government and the Trump Campaign. Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome," It continues to say that they couldn't state that the Trump campaign's activities rose to the level of conspiracy, which I already conceded earlier. It still doesn't change the fact that Russia interfered with the intent or hopes of helping Trump get elected. The report later goes on to lay out 10 instances of obstruction of justice, which is why the Mueller report did not exonerate the President of any wrong doing on that front. As far as HRC is concerned, I couldn't give a rat's ass about her. She was a terrible candidate and what she and the DNC did to Bernie Sanders was a travesty. However, that does not change the fact that Trump turned out to be far worse than most peopled expected. I gave him the benefit of the doubt. I assumed, stupidly, that the VP and those surrounding the President would temper his rhetoric and we would have a fairly benign four years or so. Benign save for Republicans desire to tank the economy every time they get elected.

    https://www.justsecurity.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Muelller-Report-Redacted-Vol-I-Released-04.18.2019-Word-Searchable.-Reduced-Size.pdf Here you go tard monkey. Let me highlight the important part. "The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion. Evidence of Russian government operations began to surface in mid-2016. In June, the Democratic National Committee and its cyber response team publicly announced that Russian hackers had compromised its computer network. Releases of hacked materials-hacks that public reporting soon attributed to the Russian government-began that same month. Additional releases followed in July through the organization WikiLeaks, with further releases in October and November." Man you are a straight up moron. OBSTRUCTION IS THE CRIME. If my best friend is being investigated, and he's innocent, but during that investigation I do anything to interfere, I have committed obstruction of justice. In what world does no conviction = no crime? There are thousands of people running around who committed crimes, went to court, but were not convicted. You know, like all those people that got immunity for turning state's evidence. Furthermore, but what abouts do not excuse the crimes of someone else. You're a child if you think so. That doesn't even fly when you tell your mom, "but my brother did this." Good lord, your idiocy is fucking depressing. Go crawl back in your bunker with your cum stained maga hats and shut the fuck up.

    It's not a conspiracy theory that Russia interfered in our election in order to get Trump elected. Many organizations have shown that to be the case. They said that the evidence was not sufficient as to rise the level of conspiracy. However, obstruction of justice is an entirely different matter. Allow me to also cut you off before you say "can't be obstruction if there is no crime." Obstruction is the crime. It doesn't matter if you're not the one being investigated, if you obstruct an investigation, you're guilty of obstruction. So you're saying that when they show irrefutable evidence that Trump violated several laws, you will denounce him?

    Only if the Senate votes to remove him from office. Impeachment is a political process, then it goes to the Senate. It won't really matter. He's got his base firmly believing that all evidence presented against him is going to be lies. They don't want to hear the truth, they already know it. Even if they had video/audio of him breaking the law, they wouldn't care.

    As terrifying as it would be for any President to be elected for life, he can't do that. Any changes to amendments have to be ratified by 38/50 states. What's even more frightening is the number of people, such as yourself, who would be happy to destroy a country to "trigger" people. Do you know what's really hilarious? Those tariffs came with a huge government handout to the farmers that are being boned. Kind of like those Iowa farmers Almagnus mentioned. I gotta say, I'm not too happy that my tax dollars were stolen to bail out farmers. I don't own a farm, why should I have to pay. God damn socialists.

    US Elections 2020

    More people voted against Clinton than they voted for Trump. She was too easy to vilify as some kind of evil, corrupt, Washington elite. She still won the popular vote. She took some states for granted. Trump only won some of the states by tens of thousands of votes. He's now proven that he's a total pile of human garbage. The big problem, which has been illustrated nicely in this thread, is that more people want to reelect Trump to troll. They aren't supporting him because he's a good president. There are tons of comment sections in articles that have comments like "Lol, MAGA2020, make those dems heads explode." That's not a reason to elect someone.

    Too many people gave him the benefit of the doubt. I find it extremely difficult to believe that he has managed to sway more people with his BS than he's turned off. Clinton was a terrible candidate.

    It's ok everyone, Trump isn't going to win. The swing states he barely carried will not reelect him. Dems don't have to convince the Almagnus' of the country, they're so far up their own asses. I like when someone blasts MSM media and then posts links and videos to places like... The Daily Caller is a conservative news and opinion website based in Washington, D.C. It was founded by political pundit Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel in 2010. I would certainly take anything that mouth breathing fuck tard Tucker Carlson supports with a barrel of salt. The whole world is just a shitty echo chamber. Almagnus googles "Obama is a muslim nazi" and gets exactly the type of search results he wants. When I read about something Trump has said or done I go right to the source. Wow, Trump really did and said that? Yep, it's right there on his Twitter feed. PS. I don't really care at this point if Trump was involved in Russia helping him get elected. What I do care about is that he is corrupt and surrounds himself with corrupt people. Trump had a chance to show everyone that he wasn't a pile of crap, and he blew it. His time is over, regardless of party. It's best to remove him by way of elections and than indict him when he's out. We need to, because the alternative is Trump 2.0, when he doesn't care about getting reelected.

    Iran trying to start WW3?

    The Democrats? Wow you have your head really lodged up your ass don't you? It's those pesky Democrats who continue to push for increased military spending, even though the US eclipses the next, what's it up to now, 9 countries combined? /s To answer one of your questions, who profits from an oil shortage? Well Saudi Arabia for one, followed closely by US oil companies. The hilarious thing is that the US doesn't even get most of its oil from there. So, claiming that a hit to Saudi production is going to affect US gas prices is just an excuse to gouge consumers. Here is a lovely pie chart for you. http://www.randalolson.com/2014/08/28/where-the-u-s-gets-its-oil-from/ I think it's time for you to take off your orange tinted glasses.

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    Streaming a game you're bad at can be quite entertaining to watch. However, I wouldn't expect someone like that to give out advice on how to play. There is also that most important of components, personality, and she has none. She's bad at the game, but she doles out advice like she's an expert.

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    Ah the simple pleasures of not giving a fuck. Cord should have never had a "co-host." If he wanted to include "players" he should have gone with a rotating group of people. If you want to stream a game and can't find your asshole with a map, then fine. However, an "official" stream should not include the most ridiculous advice and suggestions. The official stream, if it's featuring game play, should have competent players who understand the mechanics. Otherwise, you're setting up new players for failure. There is plenty of time in the week to have a stream devoted to super casual play, but the only one hosted by an actual employee is not the time. I stopped watching lotro streamers a long time ago. You can only watch people level up a mini so many times before it gets boring. Watching people play badly and disseminate terrible advice stopped being amusing. In my opinion, which doesn't count for much, spending this much energy following and lambasting a total dipshit isn't worth your time. I can't sit and watch someone with a head that big wear a fez. It just looks stupid.

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    You guys still post on the OF? Why?
  17. Why does it seem that such a large percentage of pvpers are nasty, vile people. I know not all of them are and I have met some that are generally good natured. Are these people, outside of the game, actually liked by other human beings. I can't imagine wanting to spend time with people who appear as if their soul purpose is to be humiliating, demoralizing, hateful, snarky, and smug. If it's a question of being overly competitive I would hate to play clue or monopoly with them. "Go directly to jail bitch, and I hope your mom gets cancer!"
  18. SSG really screwed the pooch with their "legendary" server. They had an opportunity to bring back a lot of people that were unhappy after trait trees, but alas, they couldn't find their assholes with a map. Shoving a imposed level cap on the live game was stupid, and I think the numbers reflect that. I would have resubscribed if they had gone back to pre trait trees, removed the store, and then had a progression server.
  19. The game will end when Daybreak isn't getting a commission check. As long as some money is coming in, at least enough to cover overhead(with some profit), the game will continue ad infinitum. I haven't given them any money in over a year. Once in a while a friend will ask me to hop in and help them with something. It's a great feeling when you can say, "sorry, I'm not vip, I don't have access." Rest assured that we won't know the end is near until they shut down the game. I'd hazard a guess that players will get a month of warning, at best Announcing a closure further out would cut into their bottom line.
  20. If they're in the Capitol Building, you certainly don't want people aimlessly milling around. The onus of comprehension is on the group, not the instructor. Seems more like a cover yo ass scenario.
  21. Did it ever occur to you that the instructor told them to repeat the instructions back to her to make sure they were listening and understood? Heaven forbid the lady wishes to avoid having a crap ton of people come up to her without any idea of what they're doing. No, it has to be brainless zombies. That video is totally pointless. There is absolutely no context. I suppose it would make you feel better if 80% of them told that woman to go fuck herself, and demand that she stop trying to control them.

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    Oh this Grand Wizard of Freaks. The dude who probably faps to pics of his toons. The guy who was called out for creating an account, using a BoV, and then spinning these bullshit tales about the good old days of Lotro. The guy looks like he spends a whole lot of time in a windowless van with bags of candy. On a side note. I don't think Cordovan even knows what constitutes a troll. Being an asshole does not make one an internet troll. Getting other people to be assholes is what makes an internet troll. Calling someone an ass kissing douche bag is not trolling someone. Getting someone else to call you an ass kissing douche bag is trolling.

    You know damn well that some knucklehead will request they add them to the store. People did the same thing with trait points. Then they'll have their "Due to player feedback" loophole to suckle upon.
