  1. I got some great news. It turns out the Tampa Bay rays really won the World Series after all. All I had to do is refuse to accept that the Dodgers actually won. Clearly there were some irregularities in game six. So anyway now the Rays are the champs. I can’t wait to order my T-shirt on Amazon. Any day now right?

    Trump is the first president in over 150 years not to have any kind of pets (...animals that aren't humans, I mean, before anyone cracks any jokes) at the White House. There is apparently a widely held belief that Trump hates dogs (his frequent use of comparing people he doesn't like to them certainly does nothing to help dispel that), so at the very least, @Guard Dog should be happy to know that there will be canines in and at the White House once again, :p. Though I wonder...if Trump hated dogs, was it because dogs hated him? 🤔

    Nah. No first dog will ever measure up to Checkers. He was the only piece of political graft in US history  no one had trouble with! 
     

    actually come to think of it I’m not sure checkers lived long enough to become first dog. I’ll have to look that one up.

     

    Edit: he didn’t. Checkers died in 1965 at age 13 oh well

  3. Just heard on the radio the race has been called. Joe Biden is the 46th President of the United States. So, let’s look at what he’s getting here. We’re still in the middle of a deadly pandemic. Half of the country literally hates the other half. A half of one of those halves thinks he was not even legitimately elected. The former president is going to go kicking and screaming and looks like he will make trouble for years to come. The country is $27 trillion in debt. There is a genuine risk of a currency implosion, banking failure, and its most important entitlement systems have about three years of solvency remaining. In other words this man is inheriting a real dogs dinner. I hope he has some hot sauce. Well, good luck Joe and beware what you wish for.

    As for Trump, hey America let’s not do that again. You guys of been wanting a celebrity president for years. Now you’ve had one you got it out of your system so just let it go. If you want to kill bugs you hire an exterminator. If you want your pipes fixed you hire a plumber. If you want to house you hire a builder. If you want a complex system designed in a timely manner and under budget you hire a good engineer. The moral of the story here is don’t rely on amateurs to do important s—t. 
     

    anyway, that’s all I have to say I’ll go back into my electronic semi-exile.

  4. Well folks I am officially sick and tired of election business. This damn thing is like a houseguest that overstayed their welcome and just won’t leave. That kind of describes one of the candidates too now that I think of it. I just got home from the grocery store. I stopped in the library on the way and checked out four  new books and now I think I’m going to turn off the Internet and all my electronic devices off and just decompress for the remainder of the weekend. Problably spend the weekend reading, playing Stellaris and drinking coffee while watching the sun set. See you guys next week

    I wonder if anyone has put together a venn diagram that shows what the overlap between those two groups looks like.

    I suppose the first step would be to figure out just let the heck the party really was and what it wanted. In my experience you can’t get the same answer from two different people

    But, again, the situation you are commenting on didn't involve anyone in an empty room, metaphorically.  CNN and Fox continued to carry the speech to my knowledge, so it was available if anyone wanted to hear it.  The broadcast networks pulled away, yes, but they're not obligated to provide a free speech platform as they're not a part of the government.

    Also, IMO, tying a requirement for someone to listen to free speech has issues.  I certainly want to be able to walk past the guy on the soapbox in the park shouting his thoughts at passersby, even if I support his ability to do same.

     

    Er...????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Do you remember the Cleven Bundy standoff in Nevada about six years ago? Where the government cordoned off an area in the desert 8 miles away from where they were set up. That was the designated free-speech area. And yes those BLM guys got very physical with protesters outside of it. Bureau of land management. Not black lives matter. An important clarification. The former gets to legally kill you. Anyway it happened again a number of times during the Obama administration and is still a common site on college campus.

    The massive turnout would be a red flag if it only benefited Biden, I suppose. But Trump is going to surpass 70 million votes, way over his 2016 numbers and probably the 2nd highest total in history. Maybe it was just an important election? Maybe it was easier to vote with all the drop boxes and clarifications of mail-in voting? Maybe people are just bored during a pandemic?

    Nah, it's probably fraud. :aiee:

    LOL! If I had told you on Monday that Trump was going to get the second highest vote total in history you would’ve thought he was going to win wouldn’t you? That is just too funny.

    Caging someone in an empty room and saying "you can say whatever you want" is hardly a free speech to me. An important part of free speech is the ability for someone to listen to what people have to say if they want to. This was taken from people. Censorship is a free speech issue. 

     

    You are right about that. It was the goddamned Democrats that gave us “Free Speech Zones” during the Obama years. Outside of which you could expect armed government agents to beat the absolute f-k out of you if you so much as uttered a peep.

    My guess is that you didn't follow politics much in 2008-2010

    My guess is you weren’t on this board or you would know the answer. The Democrats massively overplayed their hand and lost control of the House of representatives in 2010. Then lost the Senate in 2014. But in the short time they had absolute power they rammed the affordable care act down our throats. Not that it is all bad but there’s a lot of bad to it

  10. The thing that worries me is the two Senate races in Georgia are heading for a runoff. That means in January there will be an election that will decide control of the Senate. Jesus. You think this election was bad? That will be some insanity because the democrats will be fighting for total control of the US government. That is an outcome almost too horrible to contemplate. And they will fight like savages for it. Control of the Senate means everything for the crazy left. Expanding the court, Green New Deal, unprecedented growth of federal power. To quote Orwell "We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it.”

    Time to buy more cans, MREs, dog food, and ammunition. The fan is on and  the s--t bucket is full and ready to be heaved into it.

    Trump JR? 😂

    :lol: Can you even imagine that?

    That would be like holding a fifteen in blackjack and asking for a hit on a dealer showing 10.

    That would be like pulling the pin on a grenade... then throwing the pin

    That would be like the coyote opening an Acme box and thinking "this time for sure"

  12. I heard Trumps comments from last night. A President leaving office has two ways to go. They can walk away with dignity, with head held high. Or they can go kicking and screaming. Looks like Trump has chosen the latter. But... of course he would!

    Are there really people who think that consoles would make PCs obsolete (excluding PC gamers who don't understand why anyone would use a console so ascribe that motive to console gamers)?

    I don’t know. I just thought this was funny

  14. Did Biden get an edge from Libertarian vote in critical swing states?

    Quote

    “In this election, Libertarian voters could have swung the Electoral College by at least 22 votes by supporting Trump in battleground states Wisconsin, Michigan and Nevada. By throwing away their votes, they’ve likely become spoilers for the Trump reelection effort,” political strategist Ryan Cassin, CEO of Beast Digital, told Fox News.

    Hey as---le voting for a candidate you believe in, especially when it's the ONLY candidate you believe in is not "throwing your vote away".

    Quote

    “The tragedy of wasting votes on hopeless candidates is that instead of getting someone who agrees with you on 80% of the issues, you risk getting someone who disagrees with you on almost everything,” Cassin conjectured. “In 2020, that means the threat of Supreme Court-packing, halting our economic recovery, reversing decades of work achieving energy independence, and putting the most liberal U.S. senator a heartbeat away from the presidency.”

    I'm sorry... who are you talking about here? Who agrees with us 80%. You don't mean Republicans do you? Not even close to 80%.

    Look, if you want to get Libertarian votes then BE more libertarian. We are not disaffected Republicans and Democrats. We are a separate and distinct ideology.

    Further, and I may be wrong, it looks to me that you wouldn't need to run a massive nation-wide fraud campaign to disrupt the election anyway. Seems that targeting a few select districts would be enough.

    There is no way to know what districts will be important before the fact. That is why it's so hard to "steal" an election. If I'd said ahead of time Nevada might well decide the whole thing before Tuesday it would have sounded like a stretch.
