    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    I watched those clips and it simply amazes me that a President of the United States would say such things openly, and more so to an audience that is made of of teenagers. It's like Hitler hyping up his Nazi Youth. The lies and the vileness that flows out of his mouth with such ease, and no where in that crowd does anyone say, "Wait, this isn't who we are." Nope, instead, it's "President for life". This garbage has been festering in our nation for a long time, and Trump is the putrid puss filled boil that needs to be lanced.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Every day it's a new **** show. Meanwhile, we're all chasing down his lies and obstructions and he's off destroying another government agency. Trump commits enough grievances in one week that would have sunk any other Presidency, but because he has McConnell and a GOP Senate he gets to do exactly what he wants because he owns the guard dog. He's the worst of everything we've imagined about politics and his supporters use that to employ their self justifying false equivalencies. The saddest part is all of those people screaming "Barabbas Barabbas" erm....I mean "Send her back" will be the same ones folding their pious hands before Pence if he were ever to take over. @Springfield said it, "There is virtually no infighting" because they've cast our all of the heretics in their Rightwing ideological purge, those who are left are an active part in the destruction. Many voters have said they left the Republican party because of Trump, and yet will be there as his loyal lapdogs to pull the lever for Trump when the time comes. Which means that their flight from the GOP is symbolic if it is anything at all.

    Hey, where are all of our Conservative Republicans at anyhow? The sickest part of all of this will be the things our neighbors say when Trump's finally gone, "Oh I didn't like him that much anyways, but what could I do?"
  5. Fair point on 2001 Space Odyssey, I disagree that a broken computer suddenly makes it syfy. That said Trekkies who say that SW isn't syfy are just stupid. Star Trek is just Star Wars told by Berkeley professors. There's nothing specifically sciency that differentiates Trek from Wars. Ahhh well that explains it. 1sec.... Here you go...this should help.
  6. I'm not bashful about admitting that. Some stories are told before their time. Have you even been on twitter?

    And yet the emoluments case was dismissed. **** all of these ****ers.
  8. 1) we see that in Ep 1-3 the way Obi and Qui gon deal with some crowds of droids. And the Jedi were to serve, using the force on people seems hostile. Now why Darth uses his physical strength to lift the Captain (opening scene) rather than the force I dunno. 2. And yes, I think the biggest problem with using the force in Ep 4-6 was the technology for the story telling, that existed for Ep 1-3 and following but in the 70's and 80's would have looked silly.
  9. Yeah seems a pretty thin distinction, I guess 2001 Space Odyssey would be science fiction, just set in the future as well, and Jupiter Ascending. Oddly enough Star Wars isn't in the future. And I don't think of Jurassic Park as sci-fi. For me sci-fi is space/futuristic/time travel/future fantasy/adventure/horror etc. I'm not sure what I call JP or any of the awful sequels but not sci-fi.
  10. Because they tend to gang up on you in pretty big ways. I will admit, the one thing that Ep 1-3 did was show a greater willingness to use the force than in 4-6.
  11. Ouch! Well, that does make me feel a little bit better that those who were making the film knew it was ****. Space cowboys. I've never quite understood what people mean when they say "space opera". And why isn't science fiction appropriate? Is it because of the Force?

    Ok, let's go ahead and recount Trump's diplomatic acheivements: Germany....nope Israel/Palestinians......He went to his resident Jew....then promptly abdicated any sense of objectivity France.....ehhhh UK....inept China.....lolz North Korea....ROTFLMAO Mexico....no senior Saudi....still currently bent over and receiving their good will Russia....Helsinki Sure, let's allow Trump to negotiate between to rival nuclear powers who have a long standing history of killing each other. What's the worst that could happen? On second thought, maybe they'll bomb that call center that constantly calls me about my car's warranty!!

    The Grilling and Cooking Thread

    It does, thank you. I've been considering the gasket fix. I don't have the thermometer built in so that's not an issue. My top vent and bottom are almost completely closed, but I get a lot of smoke from around the lid seal. On the top vent I actually use one hole to place the ambient temp probe with a wad of tin foil around it to reduce the opening. It's pretty incredible how just a little air will push temps up though, it feels like walking a tightrope with it until I get it dialed which can take over an hour at times. I've also considered Weber's fan based temp regulator, but at $139 that now makes my $99 kettle a $350 smoker. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A7F1B60/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_9ahnDbT575298

    Beautiful!! I love my SNS it drastically improves the kettle's performance. My biggest problem is keeping the temp down. Mine seems to get too much air so I have to nearly close everything even while using binder clips around it to keep a seal with the lid.
  19. When they are openly discussing repeating their passivity then yeah it's an issue.
  20. It's like anytime I've ever had to help counsel someone when they couldn't accept difficult truths. They will resist, but if as a counselor you buy into their delusion then you've compounded the issue. I'd suggest watching, Shutter Island with Leo Decaprio. Eventually you have to come to terms with reality or you'll keep destroying those around you in order to maintain the fiction you've created to insulate your psyche.
  21. Not even remotely wrong. You could have helped prevent Trump, you stood by and let it happen.
  22. I've said it for three years, those who knew to do something to prevent Trump and did not are just as responsible. You are Peter Parker who refused to stop the thief because he was angry with the fight promoter...only to then find that the thief killed your grandfather. But you want to pretend that your failure is not your own shortcoming.
  23. That's an excuse you've taught yourself to insulate you from your complicity. It's a natural mental defense mechanism, I get it, but people who are aware and mature realize when their brains are ****ing with them. Here are your choices if you are anti-Trump: 1. Vote against him in a meaningful way that will actually help get him out of office. 2. There is no 2. If you do anything other than that then you've decided that Trump isn't really that bad, and that you can tolerate another four years of the last three years.
  24. Those are the rich people who don't want to pay taxes.
