    https://apnews.com/a66bf441fdfb43ca80d200dcbfb5d09d Kinda interesting how the media doesn't want to cover the genocide of Christians in the Middle-east. And yes, I know Isis is just about as lethal to their own (arguably more so), but they've been killing anyone not them for a long time, including people of other religions. And that's one of the main reasons why they want Israel gone. So wait... Isn't this what you just did? Idiotic hypocrite...... ---- Fun fact about the tax returns, Trump has zero legal reason to do it, as it was a political move started by Nixon. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/10/03/want-your-presidential-candidates-to-release-their-taxes-theres-a-bill-for-that/ So why are you so intent on prying into the private life of a person?

    I doubt it will be much different tbh... Still can't wait for it to happen, as he's head and shoulders above any of the Democrat candidates... as the main ones are all either a foot in death's door or propped up by the media.

    If they were smart, they would have moved to VMs... that said... If no one ever replaced a server with a new one, we probably have an ancient Windows installation and those DO NOT work well because of so much accreted junk accrued over the years.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/hillary-clinton-says-tulsi-gabbard-is-a-russian-asset-groomed-to-ensure-trump-re-election So if it's anything remotely threatening to the mainline Democratic narrative... it must be from Russia, amirite? Funny how we've heard the exact same thing since 2016 and we're all still here. Or that's just hyperbolic fearmongering because you're disjointed from reality....

    So https://www.moodysanalytics.com/-/media/article/2019/president-election-model.pdf is interesting. Basically if Trump doesn't slack off from now until the election, with the weak showing the Democrats have (seriously, this is the best they can do?) it's looking like it might be a Red curb stomping in 2020. Maybe this will finally snap the noisy fringe back into reality so we can get on with governing the country instead of worry about Twitter....
  8. So, now that we're starting to get into the "gotta regrind the LIs with each new level increase" and past the fun content of SoA and MoM... are the legendary servers going to become ghost towns as players lose interest?

    More fun stuff with Biden: https://en.interfax.com.ua/news/press-conference/617936.html So what's your actual point? I speak of what I have seen, and other stuff from the past talking to miners and what not, and a lot of what shut them down was the EPA regulations that make it nigh impossible for the small man to operate. Do you want me to go dig around the internet that backs up personal experience? Your point of view is so grossly out of touch with reality there's little to do other than point and laugh at it.

    And yet, he seems to keep making honeypots that the Democrats keep walking right into. It's akin to tying a piece of bacon onto a dog's tail and watching it spin for the lulz. And that was the entire problem because clean energy (like wind and solar) isn't sustainable as solar panels aren't nearly as power efficient, and they lead to other problems (such as massive swings in available power on the grid). That entire initiative only works because the Democrats have been shoving it down our throats at the expense of the US mining industry, which has crippled Colorado's mining economy, among other states.. Most of those protection rules didn't actually do anything because the risk was less than you winning the lotto IIRC. Why legislate out an improbable risk? Again, the ban on the chemicals was because they hyped up the actual threat of what they can do, and most of those chemicals aren't nearly as deadly as you are making them out to be. It's because renewable energy is (with the exception of Hydro) not actually economically viable because the technology is better memed than implemented. If we were serious about moving away from coal, we would be talking about nuclear power, and then figuring out how to process the nuclear waste into fuel for another reactor type, and keep making more nuclear reactors so that the final one in the chain produced lead. That solves the nuclear waste problem, and generates a crapton of power that is actually really clean. I mean, there's a reason why enviros are saying this: Which shows how little you actually know of what you speak. You're ignoring the impact that the smaller mining and oil operations (that once fueled the Colorado economy). And that's also a strategic weakness for the US that needs fixing. Then again, I'm not from an island that basically can't do anything without importing raw materials, so I guess that'd explain why you have such a screwed up view of the economy. So you're saying this take is actually rational and not laughably hyperbolic? if this is how you're opening this giant wall of text, then I don't need to read it to know that your head is clearly in the sand. I mean https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/01/us/politics/biden-son-ukraine.html starts with: If you're saying that the above is not criminal activity, there is little we can discuss because you are essentially saying the sky is yellow - which means I don't need to spend time reading the rest of your insane ramblings.

    And perhaps the entire point of his usage of Twitter is just to make a smoke screen to distract those that really don't matter in the big scheme of things, while Trump does other stuff? It's been pretty effective in that regard. Also, if you're talking about world "leaders" like the pansy to the north.... maybe they just need to grow up and also grow some balls? He's cut back on a lot of the green policies enacted under the Obama administration that were strangling small business. I know you see that as tantamount as blowing up the world, but America's economic strength is built on the small businesses that make it work... not the corporations that the Democrats tend to favor so heavily. For the US economy to flourish, you've got to make it possible for the smaller business to be able to compete against the larger ones, and part of what was needed to do that is smartly deregulating the economy by getting rid of the regulations that don't actually do anything but add operating costs to the smaller businesses that the larger ones (like the mega corporations) can just write off because they work at such a huge scale that the extra regulatory costs to them are effectively nil. And yet, very few that aren't paying attention to what Trump is actually doing are going to understand that because the message the MSM wants to send is "ORANGE MAN BAD" because Trump is a Republican and not a Democrat. So... you're suggesting that maybe we need more information before we start jumping to conclusions? But... I doubt you're going to put down your pitchfork and torch because you've got a lynching to goto.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/i-can-beat-him-again-hillary-clinton-teases-2020-run Just when you think things can't get any messier... HRC actually contemplates entering the 2020 primary.... If money can't get appropriated for a project, it's gonna die on the vine. What I think a lot of foreigners don't understand is that Congress actually holds a lot of power in the US government, so just because Trump can (for example) order the US Army to go build something, but if the US Army doesn't have sufficient funding from Congress, there's going to be far less funds there than needed to go build the thing. Having one half of Congress stonewall a President can really grind their agenda to a halt. I think that underrates Melania quite a bit, as she comes off as far smarter than just a trophy wife. I mean, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melania_Trump sounds like it's done by the book, especially with what I know working in an office that's about half full of people not from the US originally. Like above, a lot of that was dealing with Republicans that were (most likely) swamp monsters. The vast majority of that stuff was either stuff that needed to go, or stuff of questionable constitutionality that Obama did and the media swept under the rug. Why should a country allow people from a country that openly states they are the devil to enter that country? I realize that's not exactly what happened, but if there's just cause I'm fine with saying "people from this country can't enter". The problem with global economies is that it renders the US economy weak to a foreign power like China deciding that we should follow their values or we get cut off. I mean, all you have to do is take a look at BlitzChung and Blizzard (or just browse https://www.reddit.com/r/Blizzard/ ) and you can see how badly this sits with Americans. Part of the American problem with poverty was caused because we outsourced jobs and shipped them overseas, so getting that baseline industry BACK into the US will help the poor a lot more than the social programs have done. IIRC we got a nuclear power to disarm (I think it was Libya), and then proceeded to topple them under the Obama era. The smart countries realized that nuclear disarmament is a bad idea because they can use nukes to keep the US out. Iran realized this, and (as far as I could tell) decided to just ignore the agreement and build nukes. North Korea has Seoul (which is on the border) in the target of a dead man's switch, so NK needs to be dealt because taking out NK is going to take out SK with NK's death throes. While there are many that hate nukes, the sad truth is that we all need to be nuclear armed so we all think long and hard about armed combat. I'm sorry, but if you haven't realized that Twitter is where President Trump's mind goes to take a crap, and should thus be ignored, you're a moron. Twitter doesn't matter in this day and age, and companies that bow to Twitter go bankrupt. I think I've made the point on why I think this isn't the case. Yes, you should bow to the God Emperor, lest he unleash his Space Marines upon you. Ok, can't read the WSJ article cause that's behind a pay wall, but from the other one, apparently they were part of a pro-Republican PAC.... which means nothing. Anyone can form a PAC and the PAC can be pro any candidate without the Candidate acknowledging (or sanctioning) the PAC's action. We need more information. The latter half of the article just rehashes the Ukraine stuff, much of which was already covered in the transcript... so that's nothing new. Keep trying, and you might actually have a smoking gun. Then again, it did take the room full of monkeys quite some time to generate the manuscript for a Midsummer's Night Dream....

    No, he's not. He's been a far cry better than Obama did as he didn't completely screw up our health care system by demanding everyone get insurance... and then the insurance companies raised their rates and made the cheaper policies useless ($1k deductible, other stuff like that). And as much as you're going to argue that point, that's EXACTLY what happened to me after Obamacare went into effect, and why I didn't have health insurance for close to 8 years - as it was more cost effective to just take the penalty than pay for health insurance. With the company I'm with now, even factoring the costs for some of the needed procedures, it was still the correct call as I'm still ahead financially compared to what I would have spent had I been on health insurance the entire time. Yeah, the Canadians are going to point out that they have free insurance (but it's really not because their paying for it with their tax dollars).... yet why do so many Canadians come south of the border for access to the US health care system?1 Trump is actually doing something about illegal immigration (despite the Democrats fighting him), which is going to help out the poorer communities in the country as it makes it harder for using illegals and paying them under the table with the sword of Damocles dangling over their head of "We'll just call ICE on you" for non-compliance. Then there's also a ton of sex-trafficking that occurs with illegal immigration... that is, unless you like to commit acts of violence against women and rape them after you pay your conscious money. Prostitution needs to go, as it is heavily tied with sex trafficking. Those males that support that oppressive industry need to be emasculated for their part in this oppression. Although, Trump is far from perfect (and I imagine all of us would agree that he's an asshole), but he's a damn sight better than the cluster that HRC's presidency would have been (assuming she didn't die in office as she was looking rather sickly). Trump's also a better candidate than Sanders (he's lost it), Biden (he's corrupt), or Warren (she's just incompetent) as the news media has decided that those three are going to be the Democratic candidate as (IMO) Yang or Gabbard would have made a better all-around candidate... but they aren't as in-bed with the media as the other three. Trump's going to troll his way to re-electoin, as the problem with impeachment is that most of the moderate Democrats are #WalkAway ... which is going to create an opening Trump will capitalize on, especially since he loves throwing out honeypots. Re Orange: Ha ha. That was funny.... four years ago.

    Yes, we wouldn't have to see you sperging out because the thoughts involved would need to be more complex than "orange man bad".... ---- https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/10/09/trump-surges-deportations-of-illegal-aliens-by-453-percent-in-recent-months/ And this is the kind of stuff I want to see. I don't want to see people in this country that didn't use the official channels - and if those need fixing we should fix them.

    As if the Democrats don't have dinners with extremely high plate costs per person as a fundraiser... Oh wait... But in all seriousness, campaign finance is a complete cluster so seeing stuff like this is hardly surprising for anyone that's half awake.

    Except the problem here is that the only thing the Democrats have is a noisy defense for the Biden's criminal activities - and there's no way to impeach Trump without Trump taking out Biden. And one other point your empty headed "IMPEACH DER PREZ!" doesn't seem to grasp: Do you really want Mike Pence as the President? I'm not really keen on the move, but the US has been screwing with the Middle East for so long that there's no way to extricate ourselves without making the area worse. I doubt the Turkish genocide of the Kurds will see MSM coverage because that story would OF COURSE be Islamaphobic as everyone KNOWS that Christians can't be a victim... I think Trump has done alright. Then again, he hasn't turned the US into an Islamic colony, so I guess the EU has that "fault" to complain about.

    They are better at hiding it than the Republicans. Much of it has to do with how they have institutionalized it into social programs (like welfare) that promote behavior counter to what psychology has determined to be beneficial, like the mother/father family where both parents are present. A lot of the absentee fathers issue started out when the minority fathers realized that they could actually earn more income for their family by not being present, so they made the necessary sacrifices for the first generation, but unfortunately their children learned the wrong lessons, and became the actual absentee fathers. Articles like http://fathers.com/statistics-and-research/the-consequences-of-fatherlessness/ go into why this is bad for the kids. Then you have the Hollywood depiction of the African American - which is almost always done as a gangster, and very rarely are they depicted as a normal middle class person. That's very subtle indoctrination and reinforcing of the gang culture... which ties back to what we were talking about earlier with gun violence. When you grow up and all you know is the gang culture, most are going to follow in that path. There's a lot of normalization with the Associated Press, and how that works within the news media (as many outlets run their articles). The problem when the left sees a problem and the right does not with little in the center. People in either echo chamber automatically assume the opinion to be part of the other one, even if one echo chamber is demonstrably wrong while the other is correct. There's too much noise, and too much of an agenda to throw Trump out of office. And too much ignoring of how https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_in_the_United_States#Procedure is supposed to work. Most of the Democrat claim has been (from what I can tell) "We're going to impeach you because we don't like you" which is complete and utter bullshit. I think Trump has shown that, yes, they can. The biggest problem Trump has had (and why he draws so much flack) is that' he's quintessentially anti-establishment (in the lobbyist sense), and he's been working (as he can) to break up some of their hold over the government... which started with the FBI as that was pretty obviously politicized towards the Democrats around the time of the election. The thing is, as alluded to earlier, the entire impeachment argument is coming from the Democrats, and most Republicans see it as largely baseless. With respect to Ukraine, Biden needs to be investigated to see if he actually did break the law (which I strongly suspect he did), and if he did do so, his ass needs to be arrested and tried. If that involves sending Rudy and Barr to the Ukraine to do it, and asking the Ukraine to help the US look into the matter, I don't see an issue with it as it's no different from normal police accusation as they have probable cause that an abuse of power has occurred. While I can definitely see the issue with the timing on this (why now and not several years earlier?), the Democratic smokescreen to terminate the investigation into probable criminal activity strikes me more as a CYA thing rather than wanting to get to the truth of the matter - which only lends validity to the claims that Biden broke the law.... otherwise this entire Ukraine investigation debacle is one giant gift to the Democratic party and they should let it play out and then roast the Republicans over it. If Biden truly has nothing to hide.... why make all this noise? --- One more thing with the racist Democrats... the Democrats were the party of the South during the US Civil War, and many lobbied to retain slavery while the North was largely Republican (something they have tried to bury in the years since). The KKK ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan ) was created by ex-Confederates and had deep ties to many Democrats (including a mentor of HRC) until it became socially radioactive. And then you have https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Crow_laws which, according to Wikipedia: And then you get all the joy of the anti-Semitism espoused by Ilhan Omar, and a couple other members of the Democratic brat pack, which gets defended by the Democrats as a whole. So yeah, the Democrats be racists.

    Oh yes, a publication known to lean left ( https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/the-atlantic/ https://www.allsides.com/news-source/atlantic https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:The_Atlantic ), so the forgone conclusion is that they have fabricated/misconstrued/taken out of context many things to create the argument for why Trump should be impeached... when the reality is that they are butthurt that HRC never was elected, so they're going to do everything in their power to stop Trump. Funny how they all seemed to like Trump just prior to him throwing his name in the hat for the Republican presidential nomination. It's almost like he committed an unforgivable sin and they must excised him from reality.... That said, if you do the research and bring in a few right leaning sources to either refute (or back up) what The Atlantic said, I would be interested in that analysis.

    The great irony is that they have rationalized abortion as birth control so that the racist Democrats can perform eugenics without the populace realizing it.
  23. Almagnus1

    US Elections 2020

    Which is why Trump is going to curb stomp them. None of the Democratic candidates (except for perhaps Tulsi Gabbard or Andrew Yang) are electible because they are either a foot in death's door, or so far off to the left that no American would vote for them even WITH the entire MSM propaganda machine propping them up (which is why HRC got the Democratic nomination due to the MSM going on and on about the super delegates despite the electorate heavily favoring Sanders during 2016).

    At least I'm not showing vapid bullshit while pretending it's an independent thought like you are. Can't wait to see how badly you'll be crying when Trump wins in 2020 as you'll somehow be blindsided by the obvious.... again. And then proceed to fail at a coup (which is actually the crime of sedition) for a legitimately elected president until 2024 like your have been failing at doing since 2016. Then again, expecting moronic thugs to follow the law is too high of an expectation...
