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

    I think we are at the point where a great majority of the public knows exactly who this person is and what kind of crap to expect if the GOP is running government. Harping on his abuses of power, corruption and waste of government resources isn’t winning you any new voters. His disapproval numbers are consistently between 50-60%, which means a lot of people will vote against him if given an alternative they approve more than him.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    We either have to commit resources to developing young players with potential or to continue seeing if we can rehab veterans with potential to regain form/get better. This team is not not remotely functional enough to accomplish both at the same time. I think Cousins is a fine project for a team stuck in the 35-45 wins category who thinks he might elevate them into potentially top 3-4 seed status. He’s an awful player to bring into a roster full of young players who are going to suck most nights and get blown out routinely. If this team was angling to contend when Wall returned, I would be on board with signing cousins on a 3 year MLE deal, provided Cousins isn’t looking for a 1yr prove it-and then cash in contract again. He’s affordable once Mahinmi and Howard exit the team next year. But it’s not really clear where this FO is taking the roster. Most of their moves this offseason seem to indicate that this is a multi year rebuilding project.

    I see no upside to signing Cousins unless it’s a multi year deal, which I think is a bad idea. I think there are too many risk factors with him and signing him to a one year contract is the ideal move. But a one year deal, the chances of him weakening our tank are too high and the upside too low since he will look to bolt for greener pastures.

    There are so many layers of failure in this story. Essentially, we're giving a huge pass to two adversaries, because our approach to both adversaries is beyond moronic. The loser in both situations is.... the US. Idiots.

    What happened to volsmet? Is he driving his Lambo and no longer interested in schooling the plebs on this board?

    NYMAG: Who is QAnon? The Storm Conspiracy, Explained

    Makes you appreciate the DMV area much more that it’s practically free of such trash. Seems like the worst people are heading into the city this week. Thinking of skipping town on Wednesday to NYC for the weekend.
  10. 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.

    Congrats to AOC on her promotion to the US senate.

    We are upset by AOC’s decorum - says the party of Donald Trump.
  13. Newsflash for our resident low-information troll: Iran was allowed to maintain a small fraction of its enriched uranium stockpile for civilian purposes. No one ever implied otherwise. This is from a BBC article, dating back to 2016: People living outside the right wing echo chamber were aware of this. And cement was indeed poured into their reactors that produced weapons grade plutonium (understanding details can be hard for some people, so that’s understandable). Anyways, please continue with usual dumbassery.
  14. Re: above article. The cruelty is by design. It bears repeating that the current immigration ****show is completely a result of this administrations desire to inflict harm and pain on poor migrants rather than govern with sensible policy.

    The Ian Mahinmi contract is the gift that keeps on giving for this team. The Wall/Beal era could have been greatness if Ernie wasn’t garbage and he didn’t strike out horribly in the 2016 offseason.

    ***2019-2020 NBA Offseason Thread***

    Screwed themselves into the ground is an exaggeration. They haven’t relinquished draft picks or given bad long term contracts. They struck out in FA pretty badly, although I think Julius Randle can be a good player in the right setting. They’ll have tons of cap room again in two seasons. What they do with it is a different story. But it’s a good timeframe to see how a core of Dennis Smith Jr, Barrett and Randle plays.
  17. By the way, a word of caution to all of us who live in DC: on July 6, a bunch of Nazi goons are coming to DC for a rally, and so is Antifa and several other left wing groups. Their last confrontation in Portland a few days ago got pretty violent and there is similar chatter over this one. Stay safe and be careful.

    They’ve banned plastic straws in DC and life went on perfectly fine.

    Kim Jon Un had an American tortured and murdered during Trump’s Presidency. Nothing really matters at this point in Trump’s Presidency. He is a raging dumpster fire and the GOP is a brainwashed, cult of personality, living in a fact-free world. It is up to the public to reject this type of idiotic governance.
  21. It can always get worse here. And I think if Trump loses in 2020, the rightward drift of the GOP post-Trump isn't all that far from straight up militia extremism. This has already been happening on the west coast, and we've had hints of it with Charlottesville and the the lunatics who are routinely caught plotting assassinations and bombings against liberal politicians or minority groups. A party that thinks of Alex Jones as "having a great reputation" isn't too far from its members going down a seriously dark path.

    I think it’s important that they sign Jabari Parker now, otherwise we are looking at a team that will be historically bad on offense. You just cannot go into the season with one person on the roster who can consistently score 15+ every night. With Beal/Parker, you form a decent 1-2 punch and Thomas Bryant might be able to provide another 16 PPG if he can stay on the floor more this year.

    If Wall is a reliable three point shooter upon returning, he will continue to have a productive NBA career. Beal is a good enough ball handler now that Wall isn’t our only option for creating something in the half court. I think Rui can be useful here too if he can take on slower, less athletic 4s and beat them one-on-one. For most of Walls career in DC, he was the only one who could create good offense in the half court. This has to change starting 2020.

    They don’t do it because it leads to doxxing of the people involved and their families usually. As was the case with the police departments and cops posting racist **** online that was uncovered by ProPublica, the names will get sent to whoever internally investigates this stuff. The tiki torch doxxing was most done by internet sleuths, who scoured right wing Facebook groups where the rally was organized and found/outed people. Some of them were also outed by people in their communities who recognized them in photos.
