    US Elections 2020

    Some people are not worthy to lead. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/youre-a-bunch-of-dopes-and-babies-inside-trumps-stunning-tirade-against-generals/ar-BBZ3qsx?li=BBnb7Kz This article is adapted from “A Very Stable Genius: Donald J. Trump’s Testing of America,” which will be published on Jan. 21 by Penguin Press. "By then, however, Trump had become a president entirely unrestrained. He had replaced his raft of seasoned advisers with a cast of enablers who executed his orders and engaged his obsessions. They saw their mission as telling the president yes."

    I wouldn't have a clue how you could come to such an absolute conclusion. We're talking thousands of people and you are claiming they are all in on the conspiracy? And least of all this one. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_Accountability_Office "investigate, at the seat of government or elsewhere, all matters relating to the receipt, disbursement, and application of public funds, and shall make to the President … and to Congress … reports [and] recommendations looking to greater economy or efficiency in public expenditures".

    You sure have a penchant for labeling others. Is that because you yourself have been labeled? Ofc If I were to affirm or deny such a claim this would place me into a position to be labeled further. But... before any such claims would stand to be true or false, such labels would have to be supplemented with proof. You have none. You're just a mean spirited person looking to bring others to your lowly level of existence. Btw, if you think, I give two fucks who you are, then you surely think something which will never be true. I have no fucks to give to you. "You are nameless, faceless, formless. Go back to the void from whence you came!"

    Can I have Tim's hat? It would fit well on a scare crow in a local vineyard. Your own personal tin foil hat hasn't done well for you so far, so I wouldn't want that one. 😘

    Why hasn't Trump gone after Lev Parnas on a twitter tirade? He almost has to in the name of consistency, yet he hasn't. The most Trump has said is he doesn't know him, which is a lie. I think Trump is silent because he knows Parnas has a shit ton of evidence that will incriminate Trump. So much so, it goes well beyond Impeachment. Perhaps enough to land Trump in prison after he is no longer President. "They are all in on it" Who is going to be the one to testify first hoping for leniency. Nunes, Giuliani, Mulvaney, Pompeo, Barr, Pence? Will Trump throw them all under the bus? Trump's silence on Parnas is telling. Are we going to see mysterious circumstances leading to deaths among critical witnesses? I really wonder how far Trump will go.

    I feel sorry for you if you think the world has only offered you those two choices.

    Are you an ass like this in your real life? If so, I imagine you don't have many friends.
  8. I found I had no current means to contact another outside of LotRO. Uggh! I downloaded a current patch and logged into a Creep about two weeks ago. I said I wouldn't do it and loathed the idea of watching the launcher update. I waited for near an hour for the other mentioned to log on. During that time I joined a Creep raid and went through the motions resembling pvp but my heart wasn't in it. Soon as we exchanged contact info I logged out and uninstalled the game.
  9. Looks like Severlin answered the questions with a sense of truth. 10k log ons per day. He is including alt cycling in this count, so at optimum the number is more like 8k and possibly much less. Anyway, let's stick with his number of 10K. The last expansion's price was from $40 to 140$. The rest of what he says is being underplayed. They sure are worried and though more Tolkien world exposure does indeed captivate generally more interest. Very little will go SSG's way. Hmm? Thirteen year old MMO or a brand new MMO? Which way will I go? Ask this question to a person with a small amount of disposable income and the answer is obvious. It doesn't matter if the person stays with the newer MMO. What matters is if SSG can endure the introduction of another competing MMO. It doesn't matter if the MMO is not LotR proper because Tolkien is Tolkien regardless of the setting. Everyone who indulges MMO's and Tolkien will choose at first the newer MMO. Well, because it's new. If Amazon's new game flops, it may not matter to SSG's continued development of LOtRO. Can it and they survive? It's not looking good for SSG.

    Has anyone actually said it was going on? I don't read it here. Maybe your friend Timhat is still going on about it. Idk really. Once I saw him for what he represents, I found his words a continuation of fake news pouring out of the Conservative Media Complex. The place you hang your own hat. The real humor (if was actually going on) is knowing you'd be a worthless piece of shit, stealing loves of bread at the nearest convenient store to hoard for the coming rapture.

    Who killed the Knapp family?

    After Reagan and his policies, the next largest detriment contributing to the article is NAFTA. Overall I didn't think Clinton (paying down our national debt) did a bad job as President but NAFTA's affect was felt nationwide within the first year. Trump's newer version will continue this trend where more working class Americans will either find themselves without work or resign to low paying service work. Labor unions saw their largest decline due to hubris and inefficiency compounded by international competition where US companies harvested 3rd world economies for workers. Free trade agreements haven't made the US better. The averaging of Americans in relation to the recipients of free trade has a cost that is hard to measure. The OP article above is a great example. I watched this video below in its entirety. It is a five part feature on how AI impacts now and the future. One segments is about loss on manufacturing jobs due to automation. White collar jobs are next for the chopping block attributed through AI innovation. Employment, Health care, cultural shifts, Ideology shifts, Technology shifts, governmental apathy have essentially thrown a large part of Americans under the bus. All in the name of progress, where the rich get richer and everyone else are the foundation the rich build their houses upon. One example is Jeff Bezos and his Amazon distribution network. Amazon is now the largest employer in every place where he has distribution centers. Those employees don't hardly make enough to plan for families or futures. Currently Amazon has the highest injury rate of any company in the US. Highest as in proportion not total numbers of employees. Those workplace injuries are more than double the national average. In some locations for his distributing network they are more than 5 times the national average. Production work nationwide has changed to a 12 hour day for many of Americas largest companies selling well known brands in the US and worldwide. Sixty hour work weeks are common. Swing shifts, split shifts and regular week day shifts and are with the agreement overtime is mandatory and often with little notice. Amazon is no different. Americans work longer and for less pay. That's even if the person can get the job. Being denied employment because a single household parent made a late utility payment 6 months before the interview. Those kids in the article had everything stacked against them before they looked out to see what the world was offering.

    Why would I do that? If you read the article you'd know the facts are outside of politics. Having Trump attempt to make them inclusive to his political rhetoric is hilarious. It just shows Trump will grab at anything to inflate it to the level of grandiose. The funnier reality is Trump might actually believe himself.

    Causal events don't require mental gymnastics. I'll leave that realm to Almagnus. Here is an example of causal events. Action and reaction. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/factcheck/trump-takes-undue-credit-for-cancer-progress/ar-BBYQ5UL Talking bullshit. U.S. Cancer Death Rate Lowest In Recorded History! A lot of good news coming out of this Administration. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2020 Calling out the bull shitter "Contrary to Trump’s intimation, however, the death rate improvement is a product of years of effort coming to fruition, not his administration’s one year of being in office." "The cancer death rate is indeed at a record low, but it’s misleading for Trump to claim credit when the reductions are due to factors that are many years, if not multiple decades, in the making." See? No mental gymnastics required.

    Through actions of complicity this blood is on Trump's hands. When you're bad at both it is best you stop trying. Trump working class? That's got to be the most absurd thought ever conceived about Trump. It doesn't surprise me coming from a source such as yourself. You've obviously been drinking the Conservative Media Complex Kool Aid.

    Exactly. No one gives shit about how high a stack of burgers can go. It's like the guy whose fish keeps getting longer in each retelling. Most of what Trump does is called Truthful hyperbole as defined here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veracity_of_statements_by_Donald_Trump "'Truthful hyperbole' is a contradiction in terms. It's a way of saying, 'It's a lie, but who cares?'" So when I say Trump is the greatest you can count on it being truth. At least in his mind anyway. Everything about Trump is over the top. Miles wide and an inch deep. I doubt the Trump will ever realize everyone is laughing at him.
