This is your place to talk about the latest political kerfuffle.

Remember, even if you hate each other('s side or candidate), let's tackle the ball instead of the player. Insult Killary or Drumpf all you want, but your fellow member's moms are off limits.

Check the forum guidelines here if you're in doubt: https://forums.obsid...tion=boardrules

Also, in case it's unclear:

THE EDIT BUTTON EXISTS FOR A REASON. USE IT.

Carry on.

It's official. Trump is in for 2020: https://www.cnn.com/...2020/index.html

 

No one has ever announced this far from an election. I guess that means something. Not sure what. But something.

I'm sure he's envious of Xi Jinping making himself Dear Leader for life.

Pfft, he started the 2020 campaign almost immediately after inauguration, including all the trappings of a campaign. Though it was in part to pay for his legal bills (which is kind of scammy if you ask me). Practically the embodiment of the eternal campaigning that US poilitics has gotten into.

That is hardly unusual. But coming out and saying it is. I wonder what a Primary challenge will look like and who will sign up for it. It does not matter. There are only two Republicans left I have a shred of respect for and neither is named Donald Trump. No matter who iit is (unless it;s one of those two) I'm not voting for the Republican candidate.

This seems like a pretty reasonable response from a gun seller. I wish the NRA would adopt stances like this:

They did the same thing after Sandy Hook though, and dropped it once the good press died off.

It seems to be more of a visual difference than a functional one. Which I get that people love to nitpick, but that doesn't change the fact that a lot of these mass shooters have been attracted to very similar looking weapons.

Remember the Vegas shooting. 58 people dead and we are still supposed to pretend that a fork is a deadly weapon  in the right hands. Guns don't kill people, yada yada.

 

Guns aren't all the same and they aren't equally good at killing 58 people in the shortest amount of time.

with the idea being if the would-be mass sh00ter cannot purchase an ar-15, he will simple call off the whole plan and instead take up macrame or something similar?  after all, it ain't as if 5 minutes o' internet searching could possible reveal to a prospective purveyor o' adolescent mayhem the availability o' semi-auto elk hunting rifles which is genuine far more powerful than ar-15s. not to mention we ain't yet seen a school classroom which is the kinda 400 metres which is testing the ar-15's max range, so 'course deprived o' an ar-15, the wannabee attention wh0re would never consider a backpack or duffle bag filled with handguns as a viable option b for confronting his perceived abusers in these smallish school classrooms and hallways. 

 

have said before how Gromnir actual is in favor o' any number o' gun control options. even so, am disappointed by the fixation and distraction o' assault-style and military-style weapons.  shouldn't make hurl the punching bag, but has gotten to the point whereby anytime we see "assault-style" or similar nomenclature, we feel need to vent a bit. doesn't make any sense to us.

 

HA! Good Fun!

NBC news says Florida among seven states hacked by Russian operatives
 
 


NBC News reports that three senior intelligence officials say that Florida, Alaska, Arizona, California, Illinois, Texas and Wisconsin were believed to have had state websites or voter registration systems compromised by Russian-backed covert operatives before the 2016 election.
....




Although they do have that "Update" saying that Homeland have talked to them with a "NBC's reporting tonight on the 2016 elections is not accurate and is actively undermining efforts of the Department of Homeland Security to work in close partnership with state and local governments to protect the nation's election systems from foreign actors."

"We should change the names of AR-15s to 'Marco Rubio' because they are so easy to buy."

We will get rid of him when the popular parties actually give us a decent or good candidate. Or everyone votes libertarian lol.

As someone who considers him an embarrassment as well, it says alot that even now it coulda been so much worse for us, except the media and EU woulda loved Hillary alot more. Granted the media wouldn't get as much to do with Hillary campared to Trump.

Hey next election we may have Oprah as next president lol.
