Re: Politics & Current Events

He was setting up this narrative in 2016 (the election will be illegitimate, watch out for voter intimidation at the booths, etc.), only nothing came of it because he won (and no one was more surprised than him). I guarantee had he lost the EC by 1 or 2 votes that he would have spent months challen...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I don't think there is much Trump can do to try to remain in office unless we have a replay of the 2000 election. The bigger fear, I think, is that he has a call to arms with all the Right Wing militia types. I can see a bunch of MAGA gun nuts intimidating people at polling places in Left leaning d...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Again, mostly with you, but I was going with the 'ignoring the rules and making law enforcement actually ensure the government thing happens'. E.g. Trump loses, makes up some nonsense about voter fraud in a magic number of states that make up the difference, the Senate refuses to do anything until ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Nowhere did I say that he could/would extend his term if he lost. Then why would you be worried about him "challenging the results?" Like his supporters would be hunky-dory with whoever replaces him if he didn't piss and moan about losing/the new person? How would it be any different to h...

Re: Politics & Current Events

LOL, the Michael Scott bankruptcy thing was kind of what I was imagining. He's just going to make it as ugly and difficult as possible, while breaking as many things as he can. He'll fight it any way he and his enablers can dream up. I hope I'm wrong but I'm just envisioning a very chaotic time... ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Like, this isn't something that can just be gummed up by a Senate vote/non-vote, or in the courts on a whim or declaration; it would involve essentially suspending the government as we know it. I am generally with you in what you're saying here, but this is basically what the Oregon GOP is doing ri...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I could see him attacking another country if he loses the election. OK...but how would that keep him in office after the election? Then trying to impose Martial Law, whatever, etc. That's a pretty loaded "whatever, etc." that's doing a LOT of heavy lifting. Literally nothing is off the ta...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I'm also curious what people who say they're afraid of Trump...doing things to challenge the election results if he loses think he can actually do. Like, it's not some insurmountable obstacle if a president refuses to accept a loss or leave the White House or whatever. Quite the opposite, actually.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump’s new narrative that he didn’t actually lose the popular vote is setting the foundation for him challenging the results of the 2020 election. Things could get very ugly next November, especially with a party that has no interest in telling him to horsefeathers off If he goes there will be tro...

The newest Trump rape has not even garnered a statement in Congress or on the campaign trail. The normalization of this monster is perhaps that worst thing that has happened.

Re: The Business of Baseball (AKA never side with management)

It's not like baseball is shooting itself in the foot with a shrinking talent pool when everyone wants to treat anyone drafted past the first few rounds like an intern.

Also: "they're getting paid to play a GAME. They should be grateful they get anything at all!!!"
