  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.

    The stealth genre has been suffering big time since the Splinter Cell series took a nose dive. It sucks that AC is now seemingly ditching it too. How hard is to make a stealth game with great level design, simple but useful mechanics and a decent story, like the OG Splinter Cell games? Or maybe there is no market for this stuff anymore and I’m just an old fart pining for the good old days while the youngins are busy spending their time and money on Fortnite character dress up.

    Presidential Election 2020 - ManChild vs Adult

    The end result was that both movements lost to Donald Trump. I have a better idea: trash them both in the garbage and look for a better alternative.

    Corey Booker is the king of theatrics. The idea that words inflict pain and violence is also by far one of the dumbest ideas to come from the left. No one is hurting today because Joe Biden's brain is still stuck in post-segregation 70s.

    Bernie is somehow running a sadder version of his 2016 campaign. Boy, bye is right.
  6. No one is more of an apologist for statist abuse of power than right wing conservatives. Pointing out the bad **** our government has done causes a brain aneurysm. Distrusting the governments ability to do good, while enabling all of its worst excesses.

    Does it matter? And even then I think unintentional failures are more worrying.

    We've had more Amtrak trains derailing than planes crashing in the US lately.
  9. Socialism as a substitute for bad economic policies. Even mouthbreathing GOPers screaming "VENEZUELLAAAAA!!!" is just projection at this point.

    You are right. In a country full of low information voters, style and money typically do matter, even moreso than substance. It also explains why we are a mess today and we will likely continue to do be one until people start taking their civic duty seriously.
  11. You will never “win” a trade war with an authoritarian regime grounded in centralized planning, with no voters to answer to. The answer to China was TPP and bringing our European allies on board to isolate them further. Trump fire bombed most of our international diplomatic channels. The end result of “America first” is America alone and isolated, stumbling around in a globalized world that will leave you behind very fast.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    It makes perfect sense for the team that employed Ernie Grunfeld for 20 years and let him run this team 10,000 feet into the ground before finally doing something. They are morons who are bad at running an NBA franchise.

    There is no master plan for this team. They were ready to hire Connely had he accepted a shorter length contract.

    I guess it matters whose ass you are kissing. I am not enthusiastic about any Democrat who still feels the need to hit up wealthy donors to promise them that he’ll look out for their interests. Feckless liberalism brought us Trump. It might end up keeping him in power too. We are not. They are both blowing smoke up everyone’s ass. Bernie is probably the last person I’ll vote for in any primary ever. Bernie and Biden are both two sides of the same coin. One is a raging blowhard who will accomplish nothing, and the other is an empty suit who will also accomplish nothing. Both for some reason appeal to a certain demographic that cares more about style than substance.

    They will do nothing with that haul. I agree with some of the posters here that we should keep Beal. If we are getting terrible basketball for the next two years, I want it to be at least mildly entertaining with some hope at the end of the tunnel.

    CNN damn near lost its mind over this story. It is hard to fathom a suicidal pilot flying a plane full of dead people for 6 hours.

    Don’t aim so low. Say it loud enough and senpai might even reward you with admission to Trump University.

    He’s still infinitely better than a swamp monster from the upper east side who’s convinced some of you dorks that he’s some kind of populist.

    There are plenty of Democrats fundraising without resorting to kissing ass in the upper east side.

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

    Vote for a clown, expect a clown show. A Raytheon lobbyist taking over DoD after a Boeing executive resigns sounds about right.
  22. He should run for Congress at this point. Millions of conservatives will happily vote for a conspiratorial nut job attracted to children.

    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.

    Open world games don’t even feel all that “open world-y” when atleast 80% of the map is usually capped by the leveling system. And to level up, you typically have to grind mindless crap. I just roll my eyes when I see a game developer bragging about the scale of its games map. Congrats on building a **** ton of buildings that serve no purpose to the core gameplay. Look at a game like the Division 2. It’s got about 20% of DC mapped perfectly block to block. It captured a portion of my neighborhood down to the five guys and obscure falafel joint. Yet the map is so damn lifeless and the game totally boring.
