Re: Game of Thrones

The show is suffering because there is no source material from which to condense. It's like Martin gave them an outline and they're having trouble filling it. I still love the show, but last nights episode was syfi network quality.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Most of my immediate family are progressives, however, I have a sister who may be an anti-vaxer. She's a wanna be new-age hippy, but really she's just not well informed and loud about it. But at least she's on my side of the divide. Most of my extended family including my cousins are simply just whi...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Confiscating lands and redistributing wealth to the freed slaves. And continuing reconstruction probably until 1900 with marshall law. A policy like that would have been untenable. That'd be giving the KKK a can of spinach. Or actually following through and treating the south like the conquered tra...

Geez

Trump is all the worst parts of big city morals and attitudes all rolled into one cheese filled puff pastry. It's still a marvel to me how he convinced all the rubes in rural Michigan, Wisconsin, and PA he was looking out for them.

Trump's Presidency is cratering. He's heading to Camp David and has called back Pence early for a national security meeting.

I think most "athletes" get them as soon as they are drafted/signed. Also you can buy a check mark now and/or request one. Don't some of them get them while still in college? I think Josh Rosen is verified isn't it the amount of follows? I mean, if you're a public figure. There is no hard...

Sam interrupting Gilly when she's about to tell him Jon Snow's secret was unintentionally funny.

Did the show ever mention or go into detail about the specifics of the Azor Ahai prophecy? I can't remember anyone ever mentioning the 3 attempts to forge the sword.

I wonder if the military war games a scenario where the President is mentally unfit for office and they have to enforce what amounts to a coup via the 25th Amendment.
