Re: Politics & Current Events

He's already shrank away from taking out the Iran deal before, and even tried to make Congress do it before they basically punted it back to him. He seemed to be scared off pretty easily by how much the blowback to torpedoing the Iran deal would hit him. Hopefully that doesn't change.

Re: Politics & Current Events

As much of a dopey cartoon character as he is, even he's not going to war without being attacked first unless it can be sold as a quick win. Iran and NK most definitely do not even come close to qualifying.

Re: Politics & Current Events

It’s hard for me to see the electoral reaction to Trump’s presidency thus far as anything but a sign he’s going to be emphatically voted out in 2020, but maybe there’s a turnaround or some other reason to think that things will change from Democrats flipping senate seats in Alabama to Trump threadi...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I just disagree with all of this. Hillary was a uniquely terrible nominee for the Dems in 2016 or it would not have been close. Republicans aren’t showing up this Fall and unless something unforeseen happens they won’t in 2020. You and I have argued about the existence of the undecided voter in the...

Re: Politics & Current Events

He's a Republican; he doesn't need enthusiasm on his side. If he's their guy, they'll show up. All we've seen is that Republicans will stick with the guy with the (R) no matter what; the time where some of them where making bull horsefeathers overtures about not being sure about him are dead and bur...

Re: TV thread

I just re-watched season 5, and it starts off so strong, but then after 4-5 episodes it just keeps...going along. Like you said, it's nowhere near bad, but so little is happening. Watching it again, I was FAR more into the Stan/Oleg stuff.

Re: Politics & Current Events

100% agree with all this, plus consider that 37%-40% is more or less Trump’s ceiling (as you sorta alluded to). 538 would call this a bad use of polling. Nate Silver himself has also repeatedly pointed out how Trump's pretty steady hovering around 41% leaves him just barely outside the polling wind...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Still seems like a stretch unless you're thinking someone like Miller was pushing him to post it. Trump doesn't exactly strike me as the type to have the patience to go digging around in Nazi children's books for some forgotten dog whistles.

Its worth clicking on that and reading the thread; it's ridiculous how a studio as huge as Disney is mangling its classic films.

Re: TV thread

I posted the trailer here a few weeks ago, but anyone else watching or has watched Babylon Berlin on Netflix? I just started it last week, but I've already only got 3 episodes left; I am completely hooked by this thing.

Also fantastic right now: The Terror.
