The article does. Gromnir just jumped the wagon to bash president, but in doing so he advocates the witchhunt of a child.

That isn't what Gromnir did at all.

On another note, what's with this strange bedfellow between alt right types and hipsters?

I consider myself a leftist but not a hipster and I've noticed some alt righty types hanging out at my local hipster cafe.

Is it merely a case of opposites being complimentary or is there something sinister going on here?

None of those words mean anything, SonicMage.

Do hipsters have beliefs ? Or just disbelieve in 'mainstream' ?  Could explain it as alt right types and Marxist wannabes always moan about that.

As for something sinister going on here...I think the only sensible option is the cautious one.  Hipster genocide.

It's weird that the only defenders of Trump on this site don't even live in America.

Maybe the locals are just too scared of the tolerant liberals to share their beliefs

Now that multiple people have corrected Skarpie's very clear misunderstanding of Gromnir's statement, I'm sure he will learn from it and we will all move forward with better communication in the future. :thumbsup:

I'm always glad to hear people opinions.

My home state (Maine) has a strange history but we could accelerate that this November

Maine could be the 1st state to elect a Green to the national level and about damned time!

I hear there are Stranger Things in Indiana though.

let's get this straight. skarp is using a child as a human shield to deflect an argument 'bout trump lies, and Gromnir is the villain in the scenario?

the next time trump takes credit for veteran's choice, something he does frequent, and uses an anecdote o' a veteran to sell his mistruth, if Gromnir calls out trump on the lack o' honesty am s'posing it will be a case o' us attacking the veteran and taking a dump on the patriotic contribution o' those who served in the armed forces?

*chuckle*

has been awhile since we saw somebody try and use otter level deflection defense in real life.

 

 

 

that said, am not sure the obsidian board, with skarp o' all posters trying to play otter's role, counts as rl.

HA! Good Fun!

If nothing else, it's such an obvious and pathetically desperate attempt at distortion that it makes it obvious to everyone in here what Sharp_One really is, :).

I never gave more than 2 fugs about S King anyway.  Way too Blue for my liking. 

He's even calling for aggressions against Iran which demonstrates his ultimate credibility.

OK seriously now. If you are using a person's politics to decide whether you like their books/songs/movies/etc. then you are waaaay too uptight about politics. That is like disliking someone because they cheer for a different sports team than you.

Unless of course they are Yankees fans. Then hating them is perfectly acceptable.

No, really, Skarpen isn't Sharp_One in the same way that ComradeMaster isn't SonicMage117. They're just suspiciously similar in outlooks, writing style and posting quality.

Although to be fair to Skarpen, he's at least consistent. ComradeMaster is a variation of a theme, coming off every bit as manufactured as his predecessor personality.

Disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti found guilty in Nike extortion trial

Anybody remember when this piece of crap was mulling a presidential run off of the good publicity of Trump's prostitution affair scandal? :lol:

I thought it was just paying off someone Trump had an affair with sometime after the fact, iirc there wasn't any exchange for the sex itself.  Anyways **** Avenatti and **** Nike.

You are correct - I had to actually go look up the stupid controversy on Wikipedia because apparently I had forgotten. Edited the post.

I would not buy US Bonds if they took dried dog poop for payment. One of two things will happen before those mature:

  1. The government will default
  2. The currency will be worthless

Sorry Uncle Sam. You spending habits and money management has convinced me you are NOT a good credit risk.
