  1. It was like watching two old men arguing at a shuffleboard court. Someone explain to me how I'm "wasting" my vote again? Votes for those two are wasted.
  2. Well I’m definitely going to be watching. I hate them both, don’t give a damn which one wins the election, and which one goes home in ignomy. They are both trash. But watching an absent minded and doddering old man argue politics with a know nothing blow hard, especially when neither of them has a clue what they’re talking about, sounds like entertainment to me. Do you know the worst part? I’m not even sure which one of them is which!
  3. Libertarian nominee Jo Jorgensen on voting third party and why America should be more like Switzerland well, she is getting my vote. Neither Trump nor Biden deserve it. Just because somebody hands me a bag of poop does not mean I have to take it.
  4. Just taste better. Plus I live a hell of a long way from the ocean. Good seafood is hard to come by. Back when I lived in South Florida it was easy and common place to get. I miss that
  5. well if it’s my last meal, and I’m not going to die until I get it, then I’ll take two scrambled dodo eggs and a dinosaur steak please. I’ll wait. in all seriousness I’d like an appaetizer of steamed stone crabs. For dinner a grilled yellow fin tuna raw in the middle, conch fritters, salad with orange vinaigrette dressing in big slice of Keylime pie for dessert. Oh and a pitcher of margaritas would be nice. Maybe I have to go but I shouldn’t have to go sober
  6. The first patch comes out today. And it's a big one. The patch notes are north of 15k words: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2020/09/28/crusader-kings-3s-patch-1-1-culls-excessive-bastardisation-and-other-ai-quirks/
  7. All this talk about bell peppers.... that's it I'm making stuffed peppers for dinner tomorrow night
  8. I wasn’t even sure which game content was modeled in which was vanilla. Until I ran into a NPC with Amalee )from Skyrim’s Interesting NPCs mod) voice
  9. Here is an article echoing a lot of the things that Gromnir has said https://www.yahoo.com/news/reason-supreme-court-vacancies-getting-044620938.html
  10. It IS a thing for local elections where even a hundred votes one way or the other could turn an election. But a presidential election with 130+ million votes cast you could not fraud your way into that.
  11. I played FO4 all night. It's not a great RPG. It's not even a great FO game. But it IS enjoyable. Put aside it;s flaws and legacy and just "live" in the world and take in the atmoshpere and it's pretty good. Of course my game is heavily modded and was the day Nora stumbled out of Vault 111 so maybe vanilla does suck.
  12. Well I’m of the opinion that a persons religion is unique and personal to them. The best way to spread it is to be an example of it. Not use it as a club to browbeat other people into thinking like you do. But that’s just me. I also think religious convictions deserve to be and should be challenged from time to time. Besides, what do you think is more pleasing to God? Blind acceptance of what someone said? Or cold rational deduction that God is real and does, on occasion, takin an interest in the humans. And the other critters to.
  13. Democrats prepare bill limiting U.S. Supreme Court justice terms to 18 years So.... is anyone going to tell them Article 3 fixes SCOTUS appointments for life? This law, even if passed and signed, will be struck down. Not that Democrats give a flying f--k what the Constitution says unless it allows them to do what they want. Used to be the Republicans were the defenders of the Constitution. Ah the joy of remembering days long gone. Anyway. The only way this happens id by Constitutional Amendment. That is sort of a pain in the butt. And it takes years. But the Democrats are many things. Stupid isn't one of them. Other than AOC. I suspect they know this bill goes nowhere. Sometimes politicians do this kind of s--t to appear to be "doing" something about one of Mencken's Hobgoblins.
  14. I could listen to this man play all night. Sometimes do.
  15. I just heard this on the radio and had to double check on the Internet. Turns out it’s true. Vladimir Putin has been nominated for a Nobel peace prize. No I didn’t get that off the onion. I didn’t think this was possible but somehow Trump looks like a better candidate now.
  16. @Achilles OK if this s--t actually happens THEN I'll agree our democracy is in real danger. This isn't spamminmg the internet with BS. This is actually plotting to subvert an election: https://theweek.com/speedreads/939191/trump-campaign-reportedly-discussing-contingency-plans-bypass-election-results Of course I still find this a little hard to swallow. Not that Trump and his ilk are not capable of it. Rather I find it hard to believe any state government would go along with it.
  17. https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/23/politics/marjorie-taylor-greene-qanon-congress-invs/index.html “QAnon adherents believe in a baseless conspiracy theory that there is a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles who have infiltrated the highest reaches of American government and are working hand-in-hand with other elites in business and Hollywood. They believe President Donald Trump is secretly fighting to destroy this cabal and that messages are being delivered to them in code by an anonymous central character called Q.”
  18. Sure. We go to the polls and vote. And the pattern continues. “Oh no the Republicans have screwed up the country let’s elect the Democrats“. Four years later it’s “oh no the Democrats have screwed up the country let’s elect the Republicans.“ meanwhile the Republicans and the Democrats are working together to keep the other parties off the ballot. No problem has ever been solved by employing the same processes that created the problem. A new political perspective is needed.
  19. Not really. Because even if they were all honest paupers the country is still $27T in real debt an unfunded future liabilities. Both political parties have badly mismanaged they’re spending all while blaming the other for the problem. Neither of them is going to fix it. They have to cut spending and they’re not going to do it.
  20. You are missing my point. Suppose Merrick garland had been a Republican appointee facing a democrat senate. If everything had played out exactly the same then and now the only difference would be who is screaming. Government is an ugly and dirty business.
  21. He would think it was a beer or something doh! Malc beat me to it
  22. This narrative is becoming seriously tiresome: https://news.yahoo.com/bernie-sanders-sounds-alarm-trump-120810706.html There are two things I want out of this Presidential election. 1) Jo Jorgensen gets as many or more votes than Gary Johnson did 2) The outcome is not close. This thing needs a clear and unambiguous winner on the night of. I don’t really care which turd gets flushed and which one stays in the bowl. In my opinion they are both terrible even if it’s a different terrible. But this cannot come down to recounts, court battles, absentee ballots shenanigans. If I can only have one of the two things I want I will take the latter
