    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Democrats are pussies. None of that is actually going to happen. Not yet, not under Biden. I hope I am wrong, but leadership is mostly spineless pigs. Your blind loyalty to them and/or blind optimism would be inspiring if it wasn't so misguided and baffling. lol.

    I mean this is either taking me out of context or you are just confused. I didn't say I was voting for Trump. I didn't vote for Trump last time either. What I did say though.. Was based PURELY on SCOTUS, I would prefer Trump. Biden's pick for the high court, in my opinion, would be much worse. Just an opinion, you don't have to agree. With that clarified / reiterated -- I have never voted for anyone based on one issue. Ever. Not starting now. And just as I was talking with Sean... I never called Portland a hellhole. I, however, can't support how they choose to get their ideas across. They are hurting themselves and others in their community more than they are the system or higher powers. I could be wrong, as I usually am, but I see no benefit to Portland whatsoever. None. At best they may get some new half-measure city ordinances? Wohooo? Eh.

    I agree. It's a discussion that needs to be had and one that needs to lead to change. But then I also look at who a lot of those people are going to be voting for... And it's nobody who has their best interest at heart. You know how I view Bernie... Not super favorably, lol. But I hate seeing these corporatist hack Democrats just continuously fight the progressive wing of their party. Beating them back like they are some kind of evil voodoo magic lmao. I... again, respect the idea. The action itself to a degree, I just dislike the manner in which they chose to share their displeasures. I am perhaps being pessimistic, but it is going to be so hard to make these types of changes when our leaders don't believe in them. I've had trouble with this idea for years of going too big too fast.. starting the grassroots movements, start local and eventually the change will trickle up... But damn, is that a slow ass strategy lol. I just want it all, right now. Tomorrow. This election. And I am sure there has been some mention at one of his media outings so I am being a little facetious here.. But when was the last time Biden even talked about fucking health care? It. Blows. My. Mind. I

    Nah. They ain't fighting for my anything. Same for those losers in Seattle who set up and enforce their autonomous zone. Maybe the original idea was pure, but when you're beating up random people going into your zone or even jsut people you don't like... You are officially a moron. I feel awful for anyone who owns a business in that zone, complete mayhem. Those pricks look out for nobody but themselves. Just more divisive egged on or allowed by the government to distract. I know they've been mostly scuttled by now but so many in the area still feeling the aftermath of them "fighting for everyones rights" lmao. Unacceptable.

    Only problem with this is Biden has been up higher. Substantially so. It's weird seeing Biden camp out at his house and do nothing while Trump makes himself look like a moron and then look at polls that say Trump is (obviously still behind) but gaining. This isn't directed at anyone person specifically... but I find it sadly hilarious that people can be so Anti-Trump that they allow Biden to do a lot of what they hate Trump for. He's a corporatist, non-progressive pig with a long history of bad personal and legislative precedent on racial issues with a history of being very fucking weird with women and children. Creep level. Gross. Also, all these people talking about how Trump winning would be the end of democracy or whatever... Man, go check out Portland, is that shit democracy? Go look at the DNC literally rigging votes and elections RIGHT NOW. That isn't to say the GOP isnt't doing the same exact thing, of course they are. But if you vote for either broken wing of this shit bird -- I think you are just buying into the partisan, divisive politics that both parties champion. They want it to be Us Vs Ourselves and that's what they have. We are all too worried about my team beating your team to turn the attention on the systemic issues that got us here to begin with. Also, I am going to be honest... I have seen a lot of grandstanding in regards to voting for Biden just for the SCOTUS seat. On that note: 1) Trump's already packed the courts to the brim. The SC as well, but you've seen both Roberts and Gorsuch flip occasionally. This has supposedly pissed Trump off immensely. So if the main argument is the SC and the evidence is two conservative judges dissenting from the conservative pack, which pisses off Trump... eh, it doesn't hit as strongly for me as motivation to vote for Biden. 2) I do not trust a Biden nominee anymore than I would a Trump nominee. Biden and Harris are so pro-prison and pro-incarceration that I think I would be legit more afraid of the damage that person could inflict rather than some doofus extreme pro-lifer. With that said, I also don't believe the propaganda machine trying to convince me Roe v Wade is being threatened. Even with a mega anti-abortion judge like Amy Coney Barrett -- I don't think Roe is going anywhere. Coney Barrett herself has talked about abortion as a right that, which isn't going to change. Maybe it becomes more restrictive based on term or how close to birth the woman is? Idk. Even with a Trump packed SC -- I don't think they would have the votes to make drastic changes to abortion law though. With that said, purely based on the SC... I think I have to pick Trump over Biden. If Biden was an actual progressive I would think differently.

    I am not sure why Biden chose Kamala, but if the main goal was to appease the far left, there were way better options. Her record as AG is appalling. Her (some former) stances on criminal justice / reform are scary. She pushed for max sentences on the lowest level offenders, she went after marijuana offenses incredibly hard, she fought to keep an innocent man behind bars because she's more worried about a W than actual justice.... She fought to keep cash bail which very clearly impacts people of color and and poor people... I don't care what some stupid site says about how "liberal" Kamala is. She is not. That site just looks at bills they sponsor and co sponsor.... Maybe a decent indicator, but not a full picture. Kamala got credit for being super liberal because she signed onto Bernie's single payer system that he introduced. Yet, when she was running for President, her proposed health care solution wasn't even close to true single-payer. Her actual stances differ greatly than just what she's actually sponsored or co-sponsored as a Senator. Trump is quoting the same thing you are as an attack on Harris which shouldn't give you confidence in that data. lol. Healthcare and Criminal Justice reform especially, she is very NOT LIBERAL lol. Which, regardless of perception is why I think Biden chose her. He knows when she gets in there, she will largely follow his vision of the country -- locking up people of color and keeping them poor forever. People are afraid of Trump and to a degree should be.... But at least people call Trump out on his shit. If we elect the old white rapist racist Joe Biden and his corrupt AG VP... they can inflict silent hell on people and nobody will say shit. I really don't know how anyone can justify voting for any of the scum of the major parties on the ballot.
  7. After a few bumps in the road ( like having to perform the full board conversion from my phone).... We’re here! Everything is still a work in progress, so if you notice anything — no matter how big or small — say something so Vin / I can address it. One thing already on tap is a lighter skin for those of you who don’t dig the dark or default stuff. I have a 4 day weekend coming up here so that’ll hopefully be done by the end of next week! Anything else though, anything at all... let us know. See something, Say something!

    Don’t disagree with you in principle. There’s never really been a truly great time for the black community and they continuously get fucked by elected officials who pretend to have their interests in mind. The “first black president” (Bill Clinton) absolutely devastated the black community with his crime legislation. The actual first black president didn’t really do shit for the black community.... They really need to stage a mass protest against the Democratic Party, who would never win another election without blacks (Republicans don’t even feign interest). My problem with the “riots” (looting, destruction of property, other violence) is that there are a lot of innocent people being impacted — which is also what they’re fighting for. Ya some of these big stores are owned by millionaires.... but who works in these stores ? Who is actually going to pay for the destruction and looting ? It’s the poor people. The rich are going to hoard their wealth and protect against their losses. It’s the poor and down trodden that are going to clean up, fix, and indirectly pay for every single thing that is stolen or destroyed. Placing a heavier burden on those people is not, in my mind, beneficial. This needs to become a movement. Something that has a wide berth of peoples from everywhere standing together. And it can’t be stopped or slowed in days or week or even months. Keep it going at scale, and it will force action.

    That doesn't really allow a large volume of people to participate tho. I guess if you get the whole stadium to do it, but with how little room there is I don't think that works. Needs large demonstrations across the country where people actually show up -- a lot of people. And believe it or not, I don't think looting is required.
  10. I've read that before, but what I took from it at the time, was that it could've gone longer but that choice would've had to be made a long time ago. It's not like they got to season 8, and could've stretched that into... 9, 10, 11... I think it's more he (GRRM) was talking about all the stuff they had already actively cut. Stuff like lady stoneheart for example. I think HBO and D&D knew where they were going relatively early. I think that stuff would've just slowed the show down too much. Again, that's me thinking george was talking earlier cuts. I don't think the material was there yet in Season 8 to stretch that, but obv that would have been ideal because it was basically just an info / action dump.
  11. You’re way beyond “just not liking it” . Lmao. Let’s be honest with ourselves here.
  12. I’m sweating over here just thinking about it lol

    Mark Zuckerberg came out and said that social media companies shouldn’t be the arbiter of truth. Kissing some ass so Facebook may escape penalty lol
  14. That’s still the problem. They didn’t have the material from George. George probably didn’t even have it at the time. He has since said he will change his original ending because of Karen’s like Thanatos. Which is beyond dumb imo. Maybe he’s backed off that some, I haven’t checked in on his progress for a while but it’s sad that people can alter the creativity of a guy whose been writing this story for 30 years.

    Trump got fake news removed from twitter and his press secretary said he's going to make a big move against the tech giants / social media. This should be fun.
  16. How do you maintain such a high salt level for an entire year?
  17. One year later, I realized just how right I was. Damn, I am good. Lol

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    I would agree with Stevo here. He's being used as a conduit. I think the idea is to use Biden to garner more support for other potential candidates in future years. None of the other candidates who ran this cycle blew people away. Some because they just sucked, others because they just weren't well known enough coming in. Getting work in during the administration, in their mind, would hopefully try to transfer that popularity to future wins. The black vote is what saved and sealed this nomination for Biden...Nobody else was even really close. Dems need to build support among blacks for these other potential candidates in 2024.Perfect opportunity for VP -- especially because whoever the VP is going to be will very likely have a much more open and active role than we have seen in recent history.

    Oh yes, that reminds. A few days old now, but the Biden campaign allegedly officially requested to vet Amy Klobuchar for VP -- she agreed. rep. Val Demings of Florida also agreed to be vetted as did New Mexico governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. Senator Jeanne Shaheen of NH declined when asked. Tammy Duckworth will first interview with Biden's team as will Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer. Mostly names we kinda already knew, but the confirmations are officially there.

    He can't even claim he's not Trump when he keeps doing the same things as him lol. (But I get what you're saying and totally agree). Also... Not related but Libertarians nominated Jo Jorgensen to run for President. Less this year than any other election I have taken part in -- I was really trying to throw my eggs in the party (Dem). Obviously that failed and I have done so little research on these other candidates. I will have to start watching more of her and whoever the green party nominated (sometime in July IIRC).

    Biden: 'If You Don't Let Me Sniff Your Hair, You Ain't A Woman' https://babylonbee.com/news/biden-if-you-dont-let-me-sniff-your-hair-you-aint-a-woman
  22. Sums up my feelings ... Works for Presidential options as well.
  23. You're right, but that makes it even more sad that Trump is president. lol. These people just need to go vote. I still think Trump has an edge, but a mass mail in push would give Biden the advantage. I would really like to know who his VP is gonna be though.

    I mean... I see what you’re saying about the testing being less restrictive but at the very most I’d call that a wash. If the idea is to “stretch this out” or whatever it was you said last page, it’s working and so far the states that have reopened haven’t seen an insane backlash (looking at hospital data). Hospitals are doing much better than any expert figured, with or without closures and shutdowns . It’s almost worked too well on that regard. If we’re just stretching this out to be sure those hospitals can function, I think that too warrants reopening. Even in New York, the US epicenter of the disease, they’re doing fine. They had all these makeshift and emergency overflow “hospitals” that are by and large completely useless and empty other than for a few people who see it more as a convenience (if they’re closer than a hospital) than a necessity. Also... I think it’s.... Missouri ? That’s the first state to allow social gatherings for like concerts and shows. Still have to follow social distancing but I don’t think it’s gonna be long before more states follow suit
