    It's because our stupid system has enabled one asshole to have so much power.  It's quite extraordinary that one guy can stimy legislation by refusing to bring bills to the floor.  McConnell is untouchable unless he's voted out of office or democrats flip the Senate.  I have little faith in that because people are always voting against their best interests.


  2. People seem to think that Democrats have some crazy loyalty to Biden, we don't.  One difference between Republicans and Democrats was on full display during the Franken ouster.  Democrats, DEMOCRATS, demanded he resign.  If Franken had been a Republican they would have come up with numerous reasons why it was really perfectly ok.  Oddly enough, I don't think what Franken did warranted the outrage it received, but I'm old and don't have the energy to get pissed about stupid jokes.

    If Biden broke a law then he should be punished.  However, that doesn't excuse Trump's actions.  I didn't get away with that excuse when I was a kid.  Why should the POTUS?

    stupid as well. At least the link offers a shit load of laughs from the comments.

     

    Seems other agree our President is a moron.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/news/thanos-creator-feels-violated-after-trump-campaigns-avengers-ad/ar-AAK0ao7

    "After my initial feeling of being violated, seeing that pompous fool using my creation to stroke his infantile ego, it finally struck me that the leader of my country and the free world actually enjoys comparing himself to a mass murderer," Starlin said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "How sick is that? These are sad and strange times we are going through. Fortunately, all things, even national nightmares, eventually come to an end."

    It's a good thing Trump still has some money because he is gonna need it to pay a lawsuit.

     

    Btw have you noticed no one calls trump, President anymore? HaHaHa!

    Why do I get the feeling that after they created that video his team started vigorously jerking each other off?  That is until a woman walked in and asked "You do know Thanos loses in the end?"


  4. No matter how much you polish a turd, it's still a turd.  The price of admission for pvp was too steep to really interest a ton of people, even at its peak.  They should have made pvp entirely separate, meaning another faction of freeps built like creeps.  The other option would have been to create pvp servers where people were allowed to beat on each other.  They didn't do either of those things, hence pvp withered on the vine.  It's too late now, and there aren't enough people playing their regular game, let alone pvp, to warrant spending any time or energy.  

    It's pretty obvious from the direction they've been taking this game, if pvp had been a big cash cow, they would have supported it much more.

    Funny you cite that, because at https://youtu.be/ca12k2qbUQM?t=467 it mentions exactly what I've been talking about: The Democrats have prevented anyone with firsthand knowledge from testifying.....

    https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/first-hand-witnesses-describe-key-trump-zelensky-call-on-day-3-of-impeachment-hearings

    "Jennifer Williams, a special adviser to Vice President Mike Pence on Europe and Russia, said Trump’s reference to Biden in the July 25 call “sounded political.” Williams, who like Vindman listened to the call, said the conversation was different than other calls she’d heard between Trump and other foreign leaders.

    The only ones that are preventing other witnesses with first-hand knowledge from testifying are people inside the White House.


  6. Imagine if the whistle-blower hadn't come forward.  Trump released the aid on 9/11.  It was going to expire on the 30th.  I believe that if Trump hadn't been outed he would have let the aid expire.  There is a reason everyone knows that Biden threatened to withhold aid if they didn't fire that prosecutor, and that is because it was done out in the open.  It wasn't done by Biden's personal lawyer, and it wasn't done because he heard from a guy, who heard from another guy, that saw a post-it note, that some guy running for office did some illegal stuff.

    What would have happened if Obama had been withholding promised aid and then called up a foreign leader and said: "Hey, do me a favor, I heard Mitt Romney has been doing some shady stuff over there, and I want to you to look into that."  The shit would have hit the fan so hard they would have been scrubbing the Oval office carpet for years.

    This whole thing was serving the interest of two parties, Trump's and Putin's.  It wasn't for Ukraine's benefit, nor ours.

    Furthermore, I'd like to point out that I have zero, ZERO, allegiance to Joe Biden.  If he's guilty of something, then fuck em'.  If they decide that nepotism is a criminal offense then charge him.  Of course, that will never happen because Trump is the biggest nepotist of them all.

    Vindman DOES NOT have first hand knowledge of the call, that's a well known fact... if you've been paying attention.  As for the other, that's a 5 hour stream... where's the timestamp?

    If you're citing Vindman, your data is bad.  He DOES NOT have firsthand knowledge of the call.

     

     

    OK, I'm done with you.  You're so unbelievably stupid that you've given me a headache.

    You should be proud that you taught me something =D

    From the numbers alone, I do not doubt the Democrats are going to proceed despite whatever collateral damage this may do the United States - as they assume this political move will strengthen their weakened field for 2020.

    And don't count your chickens before they hatch.

    And this is more than enough proof that you're not attached to reality and stuck in the libtard echo chamber.

    If it wasn't for Hunter Biden (and the probe looking into his activities) Trump would not be looking into Ukraine.  I'm not really surprised you keep overlooking this fact as you are so desperate to throw out Trump.

    I make far more in the tech industry, thank you very much.  Truth be told, I wouldn't be surprised if I out earned most of the board.

    Right... like how you quit the thread earlier?  You're just as weak willed as those idiots from the official LotRO forums that keeps saying they'll quit... yet keeps coming back.

    You first.

    For the love of Jesus' butthole, stop multi-quoting everything.  What you just said could have been condensed into a single paragraph, yet you felt the need to fill up 2/3rds of a page.  We're all smarter than you.  You don't have to break down every sentence.  We can follow your bullshit very easily.

    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.

    The founding fathers did not intend for congress to be a lifelong career.  After they were done with their business they went back home.  They received a stipend depending on how far they had to travel.  Up until FDR, there weren't any term limits on presidents, that's why he won four terms.  Some people were not happy about that so the 22nd amendment was passed in 1947.  Both Democrats and Republicans have tried over the years to repeal the amendment.  However, states have to ratify all constitutional amendments and it takes 38/50 states to do so.  It is unlikely that such a measure would ever be ratified.  

    Term limits for congress would be extremely wonderful.  Unfortunately, they would never vote for anything that limits their power.  Congress also votes to give themselves raises. How does that make sense?  Imagine going up to your boss and telling them that you've all voted to give everyone a 30% raise, and they have to comply.  I would think that term limits on Congress would have to be something the states take up as a unified front.

    Oh noes, it's not like dear old daddy abused the office of VP for Hunter Biden to get him a job he didn't deserve and get a Ukrainian official investigating these activities fired.

    Oh wait... he did. https://www.wnd.com/2019/09/ukrainian-prosecutor-fired-investigating-hunter/

    =

    Except he didn't, and citing world net daily as your source is laughable.  The official WAS NOT investigating corruption.  That's why they wanted him gone.   The investigation into Burisma was dormant for well over a year before the US and other world leaders called for his removal.  It wasn't a unilateral effort to cover for Hunter Biden.  More importantly, if Biden had been engaging in illegal activity the Republican-controlled house and senate would have been all over that like stink on shit.

    It doesn't really matter what anyone tells you.  You'll never change your mind.  Keep gargling Trump's nut butter.  When they have to haul him out of the White House I'm sure he'll thank you personally for your unquenchable love for him.  Oh wait... he won't.

    Why has Trump not tried to have Biden investigated before now, why wait until he is running to be the Democratic nominee for President.

    Why did the Republicans not launch an investigation into Biden when they controlled the Senate

    The reason is that the whole Biden/Ukraine thing was a conspiracy theory and not anything anyone actually believed.  Trump is an idiot and easily fooled.  Guiliani ran around pushing this conspiracy theory and Trump bought it.  He was hoping that getting Ukraine to publicly state they were investigating the Bidens would have the same effect that the reopening of the Clinton email investigation had.  It kind of did.  Biden's standings in the polls have diminished since.

    So breaking down the impeachment, here's what I see going on:

    • Democrats have enough numbers to force through an impeachment without any Republican support.
    • Democrats see impeachment as key to their victory in 2020 because they lack confidence that their candidates could beat Trump otherwise
    • Democrats have enough control (due to their numbers) of all committees in question where they can vote down any motion to bring in a witness, cross examine one by a Republican, or show evidence that may counter their narrative
    • Democrats believe that the Trump/Ukraine quid pro quo is real, citing concerns of a sitting president investigating a presidential candiate
    • Republicans see it as a collaboration, as they site Ukraine wasn't aware of the quid pro
    • Republicans also site Biden doing exactly what Trump was accused of, except Biden used his office of VP to get his son a job in Ukraine
    • Republicans have also cited this entire impeachment thing is setting a bad precedent, as the Republicans are going to eventually do what they perceive the Democrats of doing to Trump to some future Democratic president somewhere down the line should the Democrats force through an impeachment

    At this point, I'm honestly not sure we're going to find out what's actually going on as the Democrats have the numbers and motive to force through an impeachment based on their narrative, while the Republicans can do little to stop it... except from carrying out several monster filibusters to block.

     

    The Republicans already set a precedent when they voted to impeach Clinton for lying about a blow job, and/or telling other people to lie about said bj.  Trump isn't being impeached because the Democrats don't have the confidence they can win.  It's to set an example that no sitting President is allowed to do whatever he or she pleases.  If Trump continued without a consequence of any kind, then it will only get worse as future Presidents get more and more brazen.  You must have been born after 1998.  I remember the Starr report and all the crap that Republicans are now excusing on behalf of Trump.  It's the most blatant level of hypocrisy.  

    Trump is dangerous and unfit to be President.  When Trump was elected I stupidly assumed that the people around him would temper his rhetoric and it would be another Republican President who created yet another recession.  I could live with that.  Trump waited one day after the Mueller report came out to start this Ukraine crap.  ONE DAY!  He felt empowered because jack shit happened to him.  In order to accept that Trump did nothing wrong, then you would have to assume that the whistleblower, the IG, the DNI, and everyone who has testified are lying.  I suppose that's possible from the lens of a total and complete moron. 

    Public testimony will begin, more and more people will decide that Trump needs to go, and Republicans will start abandoning ship if they believe for one second it might cost them reelection.  The only reason they haven't yet is because of people like you.  People that bought such a monumental con job and don't have the balls to admit they made a mistake.  

    Touting that you're voting for someone because it will piss off liberals makes you an idiot.  If your only agenda is to piss off half the country, then you and the rest of your kind can pack up and leave.  Unless Republicans change course their ability to get elected with be reduced to zero.

    And still no donations registering during the stream, followers seem to be tapped out.

    So there is an Ultimate and a Collector edition up for grabs on her Tuesday show. This minimum $50 has totally screwed her. Can she actually alter her plan? The psychology shown in the repeated failing strategies in the game would suggest not. A load of small donations would get more for the charity but I'm not sure she could take giving away what $89 and $140  packages to a $20 dollar "bidder".  

     

    Now the likes of Bludborn are buying big point codes because they are growing their channels and driving us the subs and have a chance at making a go of it. There are very different motivations in play here.

     

    You're a glutton for punishment. :)

    Mostly the giveaways are provided by SSG/Cordovan to official streamers.  Point, title and pet codes even a month's VIP.

    Could be SSG are more generous if they are driving something like this Extra Life or Movember charity.

    DF has likely actually bought the codes for the expansion to drive up her donations - before the job issue came up. Queen Bee has to win, can't have her underlings getting more contributions. Well not exactly has to win, but if she does she is going to make damn sure to remind everyone incessantly. And she'll have a reason why she was (unfairly) beaten.

     

    One comment I missed last night, well not exactly missed but it's such a common occurrence with her.

    The mention of an instance or raid being closed down or requiring to be patched her go to thing is to jump to "Exploiters" are the issue. Chromite did put her right in chat to say it was Not an exploit but an encounter that could not be completed within the instance. It's always very ill-informed opinion and the viewers know no better and get to believe it. 

    She's had SSG believing she knows what the hells she's doing for two years.

    But even after all this she's still intent to carryon on, in her own small way, maybe help others to moderate the Cord of the Rings and stream when she can. [Still clawing on desperate to retain her influence]

     

    Mac

     

    So DF has been removed from the Cord of the Rings stream?  It's about time.  I don't have a problem with poor players streaming for sheer entertainment value.  Sometimes it can be fun to watch someone derp around.  Cord is terrible at the game, and having her hanging from his sack every week was stupid.  He should have been matched up with players that are knowledgable and skilled.  Chromite would have made a good fit.  That dude knows his shit and I had been in a kinship with him for some time, he's also funny.

    The Trump Derangment Syndrome is quite evident in this thread. It's really most amusing to see the cognitive dissonance of so many sufferers of TDS, here and elsewhere.

    I especially like the one where they blame his election on millions of hillbilly racists ... who also voted for Obama,  oh hmm oops.

    This is even extra special when same people who deride the dimwit racists complain about the elites looking down on regular people.

     

    I agree Trump is deranged.  Thank you for admitting that.

    There's always that saying that money makes money, and it's pretty much true. Normally, you go nowhere but up, unless you're gambling on stocks and shit. But Trump did something I find remarkable. He started wealthy, with all the contacts you need to succeed, and then actively LOST money through decisions he made. It's like he went out of his way to fail. The only reason he didn't end up completely destitute was the sheer size of the fortune he received. I'm genuinely not surprised that people close to him in the White House see that his true colours are lacking.

    And yet a man that incompetent made it to the highest position in the US, if not the world. Even with his ego, his exaggerations, his buffoonery, and his penchant for lying, he beat out a woman with all the cards in her favour and all the corrupt contacts you'd need to become president. It says a lot about how tired half the US population was with being constantly derided for their beliefs and existence, that what amounts to an inflated used-car salesman appealed to them to that degree. The tinfoil hat part of me is screaming he was intentionally put in as controlled opposition, to keep the dial turned the other way from here on out.

    Clinton was simply a terrible candidate.  She was far too easy to vilify.  Trump ran as a populist and squeaked out a victory by empowering some of the scummiest people in the country.  When you have someone as derided as Hillary running, you definitely bring out the voting against crowd.  Which is what happened.  A lot of people polled simply lied.  If you have to lie about who you are voting for, why are you voting for them?  I voted for Clinton because Trump behaved like a manbaby during the debates.  Nothing about his rhetoric or attitude said: "yeah, things are definitely going to be better under Trump."

    No, because you and I both know that if you actually provide that answer, you will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that you're a bad faith actor, so all you're doing is creating a smokescreen because I called your bluff and you can't admit that I out-maneuvered you with a simple post.

    So go on, answer the damn question already.

    ---

    And for those wondering about the richest in America:

    As of July 2019 https://www.jalewa.com/top-10-richest-people-in-america/

    1. Jeff Bezos - Democrat (or at least, mostly supports them through campaign donations)
    2. Bill Gates - Democrat
    3. Warren Buffet - Democrat
    4. Mark Zuckerburg - Ambiguous, however, Facebook has a strong Democrat and as corporate culture flows from the CEO...
    5. Larry Page - Democrat
    6. Larry Elison - Democrat
    7. Sergey Brin - Democrat
    8. Charles and David Kock - Republican
    9. Rob Walton - Republican
    10. Jim Walton - Republican

    So how about we stop pretending that one party favors the rich over the other?

    I didn't realize all of those rich white guys were in Congress.  Who knew?  I guess if Jeff Bezos runs for senate or President you can vote against him.  Guess what, I wouldn't vote for any of those assholes on your list.  That's because billionaires do not care about regular people, just like Trumpy poo.
