Re: NHL Thread

So both #8 seeds advance, Toronto still can't get out of the first round, the Jets disappoint again, the Penguins get swept....anything else I'm missing from the first round? I'm wondering what 9 days off will do for Columbus' momentum heading into this Boston series Caps could go out also which wo...

Re: Politics & Current Events

So Trump challenging all these subpoenas (asking for his financial records) could drag out past the election. How broken is our system that a simple record request can be dragged out for 18+ months?

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump thinks he's packed the court so much that they will bail him out if he's impeached. Obviously, Constitutionally he's wrong, but it is quite stunning how corrupt his thinking is. He is such a criminal and only thinks the way a criminal thinks. He has the judges, now he can do whatever he wants...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Buttigieg appears to be cleaning up on the fundraising front as he has no reservations about taking large $ donations. Hey, whateves, fill the war chest, I'm seriously not judging. He looks headed for the squishy middle, maybe a young alternative to Biden? Or am I way off on that? Nope. It sucks to...

FWIW, I attached no judgment to his stance. Just saying what it is. His reasoning was pretty well-founded; once you start creating groups of people who can't vote, you open the door for more and more voter suppression. He's not wrong, but the GOP dum-dums will eat up the "BERNIE LOVES TERRORIS...

Re: It's Maddoning

At the risk of summoning the anti-anti-fun brigade, is it really that objectionable that he says "I'd prefer if people liked the sport for the sport, and not the celebrations"? He doesn't even say or imply the celebrations are bad or too much. What the hell do we call a hot take that is s...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Did Bernie really say that he wants to let people currently in prison for violent felonies have voting rights, or was I half asleep and hearing things? Cuz I....don’t think I can support that one.

Re: Albert Almora is insanely good

Stay mad, I guess? If you're convinced that a player who is playing well is actually bad (at this moment), I don't know what to tell you. I'm not saying Adam Jones (or Heyward or whoever) will continue to be good the rest of the year, I'm only saying that in the small sample size that is the 2019 s...

Also, Tyrion is not smart. His only two intellectual accomplishments in terms of leadership are: 1) Slightly outsmarting Cersei in King's Landing for awhile 2) Holding out in a fortified city long enough for reinforcements to arrive after having time to prepare, which is literally the entire point ...

Bernie has given Trump at least 5 or 6 attack ads so far, and all they need to do is play a 20 second clip from this event.

Re: Game of Thrones

The only disappointing part of the episode is that Bran says the White Walkers motivation is just the annihilation of the human race. I was still holding out hope that it would be more complicated than that. I see a lot of people saying the same thing but I don't really understand why. A convoluted...

Re: Politics & Current Events

As I noted a few days ago, today in Alabama it's Confederate Memorial Day. All state offices are closed as the state honors the death of traitors, villains, racists, and the stupid who started the Civil War. In case you're interested in verifiable proof that reparations should be paid, here is a br...
