  1. The delights of a two party system where each side is deathly afraid of becoming irrelevant. Willing to drag everyone into the us vs. them struggle.
  2. There is some real truth to Barr and 2024. He'll wreck whats left of the Constitution that Trump hasn't already. I read some of his published material. The guy has this thing about co-equal branches and how it is interpreted. Essentially he thinks the Executive branch deserves a bigger slice of the pie. I haven't given weight to anything he has said while working for Trump. Barr knows AG is a stepping stone, so he'll say what he is told and endure the fallout. Honestly I don't think Barr is presidential material. Pompeo? I don't see it. He is tainted by Trump.
  3. To me the meaning of a moderate, centralist means being able to pick and choose sensible positions from the political spectrum. If they reside outside of the center as long as they provide positive outcomes the majority of the people can benefit from is fair game. With that said, free education and healthcare are within that meaning. Just because they are social programs doesn't meaning they are leading the way to socialism. I find it funny when people make opposition to those two ideas, but at the same time don't consider bailing out banks and business sectors socialism. Also the same pe
  4. President-elect Biden gave a very good victory speech tonight. His confidence seemed overwhelmingly evident. He covered nearly every concern an American might have if not all of them. Tonight's speech might be the best I've heard from any politician in more than 20 years.
  5. Ya its far from over and I don't mean Trump throwing child tantrums. Without Senate control for Biden its really just a wasted span of time. Mcconnell is the swamp. You know, the one Trump wanted to get rid of. Biden will already have to sell his soul just to get cabinet members. Biden ought to just pull the bullshit move Trump used and place interim proxies for his cabinet which just happen to never get replaced. Mcconnell will block any and every nomination and legislation Biden's Democrats put forward. Then later want to use the backroom for bargaining. The end results are just more of the
  6. Seems this sites edit function has disappeared.
  7. No it wouldn't but then you've not given a reason why it is a bad thing. The problem with the EC is its points at doled out state by state. Where as they should be stand alone points per EC district decided by the census. Doing it this way gives each EC point and equal standing amongst the total number. Also the majority of voters in a specific district get proper recognition. Nebraska and Maine have it right. The remainder of the states have it wrong.
  8. You are correct. He is still a US President residing in the White House until Jan 20th 2021. After that date things change for any President. But... Let's not get ahead so quick. Before Jan. 20th. If Trump is seen to be shifting large amounts of assets or currency, it will be seen as suspicious. Being as such will also attract scrutiny and public criticism. This suspicion isn't just limited to Trump the person but also his family and those who control his finances. If this scenario plays out there is no chance the US gov't will let lame duck President leave the country. The risk
  9. Some people just can't figure it out. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?684237-New-p2w-relics-garbage-loot-progression The LotRO treadmill spins the wheel of insanity.
  10. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/is-president-donald-trump-a-flight-risk/ar-BB1au69W 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
  11. This is an increasingly common occurrence. Players feeling the need to list their loyalty badges while submitting to the forums for help. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?684095-Any-SSG-support-tech-please-view-this-thread-Cordovan "I'm a VIP since pre launch in 2006.

I am at a loss for words from both ends (the player and the company) after reading this. I'm happy I left this shit sh
  12. On a semi serious note it is a bit depressing watching SSG sink to the bottom of the ocean. So just to lighten up the tone I made a new thread in the suggestion section. Partly out of humor. Yet why not? How much worse could the game be now? https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?684031-Whale-pet-please "I want one. I have cash. SSG make it happen." Anyway, I expect it to get buried in a day or two.
  13. Read the current forum threads today. Sounds like everything is broken from scaling instances to content purchases. Players can't get logged in. Complaints about the price packages and more. Looks like most who complain about the 'recommended' package are pissed they want a boar 🐖 but not for the forty dollar price tag. With this level of irritation the forums are ripe for trolling while wearing the fanboy hat. What do FC?
  14. It actually could happen and should happen. Here is why. Trump has been the most disruptive person to ever set at the Resolute desk. He is a belligerent, arrogant, too dumb to know he is stupid moron. I don't say that because I dislike him. It's just obvious to the casual viewer Trump is a child throwing tantrums when things don't go his way. A President needs to display something worthy of respect to the American people and to the world. Trump is a divider of people and has many times trampled on civil rights, human rights and lacks empathy for his fellow man.Though those offenses don't
  15. https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-suggests-he-may-leave-country-biden-election-2020-10 "Could you imagine if I lose?" Trump said on Friday. "I'm not going to feel so good. Maybe I'll have to leave the country, I don't know." Translation: If I lose I'll be running with my tail tucked all the way to daddy Putin. Or will he? I think the answer is no. I also don't think any US President has ever left the United States and formally lived as a citizen in another country after their term expired. Additionally, I don't believe a future administration (regardless of party) would
  16. If Democrats retain the House, gain the Senate, and the White House, Trump can be impeached again. Hypothetically if Trump was convicted he could be denied access to any elected position in the future including the US Presidency. Its not like Democrats have to look far for impeach worthy actions from Trump. In fact it could be run through the House and Senate as quickly as say a Supreme court nominee.
  17. Historically, Trump is starting to make Nero and Caligula look like good guys.
  18. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/in-a-few-days-more-people-in-trumps-orbit-tested-positive-for-coronavirus-than-in-all-of-taiwan/ar-BB19LxxU?li=BBnb7Kz In a few days, more people in Trump’s orbit tested positive for coronavirus than in all of Taiwan Amazing triumph from the infected tiny hands man. I read somewhere that, that was moderated on Twitter. Also the dumbfuck had his Twitter account locked for posting a person's email address until their info was removed.
  19. It is a shameful disaster how one man who wasn't loved or nurtured can near single handed destroy a nation all because his stupidly rich father couldn't afford a hug. The psychopathy is real in Trump. The guy can't resist being cheered at no matter the consequence. Nor does he care about the price of his desire for adoration. One way or another this fucked up circus side show will end soon. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/polls-biden-has-a-double-digit-lead-on-trump-nationally/ar-BB19HiUR
  20. Words are just that. Without definitive proof of test results its a challenge to put belief in the words of a compulsive liar. Even more of a challenge to believe a liar who wields power with the ability to coerce others under their thumb to support their reality. So thats a skeptical opinion but I feel its well warranted considering the man in question. The pragmatist in me says if this is real someone will become extremely ill based on the percentage of those who become infected and those who survive. Forty to 50 passengers in a plane where one person is actively infected will surely im
  21. Dismantling their game's community has long been a manager pet project passed along to each new EP. PvMP is a good example. Passive avoidance and silence while letting systems harboring player loyalties march their way to the graveyard. Replaced by insta-gratification systems which intentionally inherit monetization structures. I'd guess every time SSG reads on their forums where a player says buying the Life Time was the best money they ever spent on gaming is a likely good source for the motivation to disenfranchise the non profiting portion of their playerbase. The F2P model has served its

That way SSG can claim idea origin. I'll keep watch of the current thread to see if SSG jumps in the thread. Then link that thread to say umm ya it wasn't SSG's idea. Radhruin is gonna be shitting out bent rusty nails. The howling will be excruciatingly loud from him if indeed a new Brawler class introduction is approaching. SSG has been placing plot discussion devi
  24. This guy would have never survived a Mueller investigation testifying in person. The guy talks shit his whole life and in 2016 when questioned under oath, expects to not be held accountable for those same words. In the end, Trump lost and paid $25 million and was ok with that as long as he could admit no wrong doing. Now we can see 1st hand why his attorneys try to keep him off the stand at all cost.
  25. I keep reading this stuff about how SSG is a business and they need players money desperately. Ya umm nope. Not this year in particular. I know damn well DBG and by proxy of DBG's umbrella, SSG too have gotten millions from the US as a result of Covid-19 through the US appropriations for small businesses. Think this through and you will see what I mean. DBG recently broke up their business into smaller development companies. That in itself made them eligible for loans to keep their employees working from home and with the caveat of loan forgiveness for adhering to policy's set forth by US cong
