  1. https://thinkprogress.org/trump-ichan-steel-imports-cf7deb8beaf0/ Insider trading 101. If the SEC still does what it's supposed to do, this should be a major scandal that demands an investigation. This is the kind of corruption that is a hallmark of oligarchies. Also might as well make this the trade war thread. It seems like the tariffs won't just be for steel and aluminum.

    Election 2020 The Non Presidential Edition

    Bernie should be asked how he will get Dem caucus votes for his completely unreasonable M4A proposal. In no universe is M4A passing with a Dem Senate that has Hickenlooper, Manchin, Warner et al.

    It is worse than that. The “missing DNC server” is a dumb conspiracy popular in QAnon circles. Somehow a completely insane fringe theory got picked up by Rudy and now Trump is getting impeached because he’s a fwd:fwd:fwd grandpa email come to life.

    The guy who failed a class in college called “Meats” and was then put in charge of the nuclear arsenal, is quitting after being caught in Stupid Watergate.

    Everyone saw it coming. “No quid pro quo” was always going to morph into “it’s perfectly fine” because only a dumbass believed “no quid pro quo” two weeks ago. Now with multiple government officials, inside and outside the WH confirming that this was basically a dumb, criminal scheme carried out by even dumber people, we end up with “nothing wrong went down”. ”Nothing wrong with it” isn’t going to work when majority of the public believes you did something wrong already.
  13. I actually like the mall, it's the best in the area. But there is just no easy way to create an urban-style environment when you sit on the intersection of 7 and 123, with enormous parking lots and strip malls, an above ground metro and poor walking access to essential amenities like grocery and convenience stores. Better off living in Reston/Herndon, paying lower rent for better accommodation and you can just drive to Reston Town Center or One Loudoun, both which are more enjoyable than Tyson's if you want a faux-urban atmosphere and you're still in close proximity to Tyson's office and major highways. Speaking of renovated mall areas, anyone been to Ballston recently? The new Ballston food space is actually really nice. Hot Lola's

    Total clown show. When will these goobers turn against this moron and just move on with President Mike Pence?
  17. It is still a pedestrian nightmare so no. They are trying so hard to create a hip, urban vibe when this is absolutely not possible if you keep expanding roadways and plopping down parking garages. I can’t think of a worse location to live when you consider cost of living within the DMV.

    GOPer coming to a profound realization. Only if there were clear warning signs.
  19. My god this post is a loaded steam of ****ing ****, down to you repeating the communist propaganda of the Falun Gong being a cult. For someone who pretends to be such a social justice warrior, perhaps you should know that the communists started detaining, murdering and harvesting the organs of Falun Gong practitioners after falsely smearing them as as a “dangerous cult”. Having had first hand experience of what life is like for people fleeing Chinese persecution, I am going to fill you in on a secret. Groups like the Falun Gong and the Uyghurs end up supporting Republicans precisely because leftists like you are so inherently incapable of understanding that while the US has its warts, things are much, much worse in other parts of the world. It also doesn’t help that many of you end up repeating the bull**** talking points of genocidal regimes. Anyone fleeing communist persecution in the US has no time for people like you who have a completely warped understanding of freedom and human rights. So naturally they gravitate towards people who will listen to them and perhaps try to do something about it. The biggest joke in this thread is your whining that people lack nuance, followed by your repeated whataboutism and what now seems like talking points straight from the mouth of CCP thugs.
  20. You’ve also criticized China, but by first paraphrasing how bad the US is as well. Just like you can’t bring yourself to criticize LeBron without making poor attempts at making him a victim of mean ol white men of corporate America. This is called whataboutism and it’s not as clever as you think it is.
  21. One of the first posts in this thread is mine calling out corporate America’s self censorship in the face of Chinese pressure and this is before all of this mess happened. Your one purpose in here has been to first engage in whataboutism of “US is just as bad as China” and then bending over backwards to complain about the nonexistent and made up issue of “why are black athletes being criticized and not the corporate front offices”. Constant whataboutism and inventing fake narratives isn’t nuance. It’s Trumpism.
  22. Mr. Nuance should read the thread, which has plenty of criticism for the corporate egg heads in this mess. Let’s get real, you can’t bring yourself to be critical of black athletes without the need to perform an Olympic gold medal performance in mental gymnastics.
  23. This is Jimmy Sham. Within 24 hours after US House passed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, Jimmy Sham, the convenor of the Civil Human Rights Front and candidate of District Council Election, was smashed hard with hammers and severely wounded by 4 masked persons this evening. James Harden: “We apologize to China and will donate more hammers for the CCP to beat the **** out of pro-democracy activists.”
