Re: Politics & Current Events

This story is very confusing. Was he actually arrested? Was there a person with bruises that called the police on him? What led to the arrest - they wouldn't just arrest somebody for dv based on a third party tip, right? It was an unspecified woman and he was arrested. TMZ is controlled by a Trump ...

Re: Journalism Thread

Because IMB is probably too proud: It's Nov. 15 and we've raised about 1/4th of our goal. NewsMatch, if you missed our earlier emails, is a program that is offering to match donations (up to $25,000) to The Frontier during November and December. So far we have raised more than $6,000 - most of it fr...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

It seems like I make this post about every month, a two-year-old in Birmingham found a loaded gun and accidentally killed himself.

Edit: I just checked and my last post was on November 4th. So it every 10 days.

Re: Video Game Thread

They still make those baby jumper things that you can hang in a doorway, right? Or did those turn out to be recalled baby murder machines? Heck, even if they did, odds are pretty good you can dump a kid in one of those for a few hours of cowboy living. Depending on size, a clothes basket works. Whe...

Re: Video Game Thread

I started a game in RDD2 and my 10 year old son messed it all up. I had a great horse and like $500. I started to get pissed at him then I remembered I’m approaching 50 and he’s the one I bought the game for.

Yep, two years ago I might have been convinced the other way, just to avoid becoming a worldwide embarrassment and the damage Trump was going to do to ...

If by "privatized forest management" you mean clear-cutting the forest and building luxury apartments and homes, you are correct.

Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

I'm not even taking sides in the matter but it's insanity to keep doing the same thing over & over and expect anything to change. It's insane to equate people who say we need more gun control with people saying we need more guns, and blaming them both for "same thing/nothing changes"....

Why is Nancy Pelosi in particular a good bogeyman, the fact that she's from California? All the 'liberal elite' scaremongering just uses her as an avatar, anyone they make Speaker would work just as well. Name recognition for one. She's done the job a lot, and has already had a LONG history of the ...

I've been thinking, I feel like Theo is harder on the team than some posters here.

I like to think this is especially true now. Missing o...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I think yesterday's outcome is as close to a best-case scenario as the Democrats could have hoped for. In Alabama, it turns out the Trump did fire up the blue hairs and knuckle draggers. I didn't help that Democrats don't have a functioning party apparatus. As for O'Rouke, Gillum, and Abrams, I'm sa...

I’ve been mostly driving African Americans to the polls so my sample is biased, but Black turnout is incredible in Montgomery Alabama.

I don’t want to get my hopes up, but they are.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Huge turn out in Alabama. No one knows what that means. It could be that Trump scared the knuckledraggers enough or it could mean a Democratic wave the likes of which we've never seen. There are some real horsefeathers stains holding office in Alabama.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Maybe for this horsefeathers to actually work out for once, the Cubs have to go back to being infuriating and they have to have a horsefeathers offseason and be mediocre next year. Like, the reverse version of how the Cubs winning it all ushered in Trump. The Cubs HAVE to miss on Harper, for the go...

If the Cubs do not sign Harper or Machado, I will curse any fan who used $/WAR to knock a player for his salary. Maybe anyone who complains about player salaries in general, but oh that gd lowballed $/WAR... On the morning of signing those peole will be cursed with unusually cold, gross coffee AND/...

I just can’t bring myself to believe that the Cubs won’t be in on Harper and Machado. I mean, sure, there’s a strong possibility they get neither. But all these reports read like they’re not even going to really try. And afte the way the season ended, that would be flat out negligent. It’s worse th...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

Another child was killed in Alabama close to my town. She found a loaded gun laying around. Here in Alabama, they arrest women when their babies test positive for trace amounts of drugs, but parents of kids who kill themselves or one of their friends while playing with guns get thoughts and prayers.
