    The Impeachment Thread

    There was a suggestion in the Russia investigation thread to start a new one for impeachment. With the investigation now over and the SCO dissolved, the next phase begins. There is growing support among House Democrats and one lone Republican (Justin Amash) on starting impeachment hearings over the 11 counts of obstruction highlighted in the special counsel report.
  2. A lot of economically anxious right wing folks have descended upon UVA this weekend. Of course, there are heroes in this story. Who were sadly failed by their local police departments.
  3. To The GOP is making up claims of electoral fraud to undermine the trust of the public in our electoral process. Happening in FL and AZ for the past few days, and now it seems Nevada GOP is denying results that pretty much swept them out of power at every level of government in the state. As the GOP reaps the electoral results of their bargain with Trump, expect this to worsen.
  4. I see what you are saying tshille but if people want a say in who defeats Trump, they should take part in the Dem primary. Dem primary voters shouldn’t be tasked with keeping the sensitivities of a sliver of center-right voters in mind when they go to the polls. “I like Elizabeth Warren but what will my Trump hating GOP neighbor want me to do???” isn’t going to happen. The Trump hating GOP neighbor should instead look into how he/she can participate in the Dem primary and cast their ballot for the candidate they finds most relatable.
  5. Recently received news from a friend whose grandfather had been jailed in these camps. Just three years ago, his grandfather was able to travel to the US and visit his family here. He was taken into detention last year and released from one of these camps a few months ago. Upon release had lost his ability to speak and we just learned that he recently passed away, a few weeks before the birth of my friends daughter. He never had a chance to see his first grandchild born.

    Xbox One Vs Ps4

    Interesting, post updates if you can about how it goes. I am using Raspberry Pi's right now mostly for things like Bias Lighting on TV's and touch screen interfaces around the home. Never thought of using it to set up a mini arcade until now.

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

    Mitt is more like the Houses who begrudgingly tolerated the Bolton's while never fully supporting them. Trump's Reek is really a tie between Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.

    I wonder how challenging it is to make your own arcade setup using a Raspberry Pi. Might be worth looking into some DIY videos.

    Fantasy Football 2019

    That’s a tough call because Fournette is better than Mack but it’s not a massive upgrade. The main benefit of this trade is that you give yourself some bench depth in case one of your primary backs is injured. Seems like an unnecessary trade tbh, stick with your line up especially since CMC and Mack are both past their bye weeks.

    It depends on who your second RB is behind McCaffery because Zeke and Fournette is a pretty good offer for CMC. If your second RB is not that good, I would take it.

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

    They are as much a cult as Christianity or Islam or Judaism. They were so much a cult and dangerous that the Chinese government promoted their beliefs until they grew too large and posed a challenge to CCP’s grip on power. “Cult” was a label thrown on them to justify persecution and to eradicate them from Chinese society. It really doesn’t matter if you think organ harvesting and persecution of the Falun Gong didn’t happen because this is verified by multiple independent sources. Just like no one listens to moronic Nazi's distrustful of Jews, who think the Holocaust never happened, the same really applies here

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

    Hi numpty. Weird religious beliefs isn’t ground for unlawful detention, illegal organ harvesting, murder and all around persecution. Unless your position is that people whose beliefs you find weird should be persecuted and murdered, this is probably a debate you should stay from. I don’t think you realize that what you’re doing in this thread and the other one is the equivalent to someone saying “Nazis are bad” and some idiot joining the conversation with “but do you know what the Jews believe in???!”. In his tiresome crusade against Western countries, Bennings has taken the position that communists murdering people who believe in kookie ideologies is perfectly reasonable and in fact, commendable.

    Would be more helpful if Pierre Delecto said these things out in the open.

    The Brexit Thread

    Brexit delay passes again in Commons. Boris looks defeated.
  17. It’s people like my mother. Suburban women who like him because he was Obama’s guy. I still bought her a Warren yard sign and stuck it in the front of her house anyways.
  18. Tulsi is going to have an amazingly long career making money off of Rube Nation. Get that money desi sister.
  19. This is just a general rant. Over the past few months I have been traveling quite frequently for work. Flying is just an absolutely horrendous experience at this point. It is remarkable that in a country where a substantial chunk of the population is obese or overweight, seats on aircrafts have gotten exponentially smaller to squeeze more and more people into a single flight. The end result is a miserable experience for everyone involved. Yesterday on a three hour flight, I was squeezed into my already tiny seat because the passenger adjacent to me couldn't fit into her seating space. I had to give up about a quarter of my seating space to her. Most airlines have instituted policies for larger passengers of size, and countries like Canada mandate that such passengers be given a 2nd seat at no additional charge. I know most US airlines have policies in place to accommodate passenger comfort but I don't think this ever gets enforced. Something needs to change.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Why do you say that? It seems like the more NBA relies on analytics, the more likely it is that spacing and shooting become central to the game. Barring rule changes, I doubt we see an NBA that allows teams to feature someone like Ben Wallace. This team needs to start drafting well and getting value out of its draft picks. The biggest failure of the Wall/Beal era has been the downward spiral of poor FA signings patched through trading of draft picks. They need to first draft valuable role players and then use FA to patch in the holes or bring in complementary pieces.
  21. I was holding off on posting this because I wasn't sure where this dumb conspiracy was headed. But this has now reached enough of a mass popularity in right wing circles so here you go. Tl;dr: people are convinced that a Trump admin official who they have dubbed "QAnon", is posting subtle hints of a massive conspiracy on the 4chan board /pol. http://nymag.com/selectall/2017/12/qanon-4chan-the-storm-conspiracy-explained.html

    The Impeachment Thread

    When I wrote the poll, I only asked if he should be impeached for obstruction as laid out in the Mueller report. Silly me doubted Trump’s ability to commit even more high crimes and misdemeanors in the future.

    Sorry, difficult to pick up on it these days.

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Atomwaffen Division is a terrorist group. “Opposing the current political powers” is an interesting way of framing their recent spat of killings and hate crimes around the country.
