Re: Occam, Trump, and Russia

So some of this makes me wonder is there any way to go through non-official channels in Russia without those channels being connected to the mafia, intelligence agent, oligarch, or Putin henchmen? All countries have these back channels and influencers and are used by various politicos all the time t...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

Fuck that noise. Lets get high and have sex. Yeah, I never get why people are sad about not having some higher purpose. Bacon, rubbing one out, and reruns of good sitcoms are more than sufficient to qualify as a good life for me. I like those things too but the feeiling I get when overcoming obstac...

Re: Ragequits

Dark Souls games. I love them to death but there will be times when you know what to do but just can't seem to do it and end up running your head into a wall over and over again. Lately it's been more Star Wars:Galaxy of Heroes. There's a lot RNG in the game which makes me nuts sometimes. Back in th...

This bad even for Trump. It would be one thing to be bland and non-committal but openly supportive of Putin is just bizarre.

Re: Orange is the new President

So if I understand the defenses of Trump in this thread, it's that Trump's rants about witch hunts are not because he is worried about what Mueller's investigation might turn up, but is Trump's civic-minded attempt to avoid seeing taxpayer funds wasted on pointless investigations (especially when t...

I know Trump likes to shoot off at the mouth but that would show an amazing lack of self preservation even by him. Especially someone in no way guaranteed the presidency or other legal cover.

It is quite likely that he thought he had deniability, that he could blow it off as "Just a joke." And right now your theory boils down to "The fact that he did something that looks incriminating just proves that he had no knowledge, because if he knew what was going on he wouldn't have done incrim...

We know that Trump's son and campaign manager met with Natalia Veselnitskaya, as well as a few other people, arranged via Trump friends with contacts in Russia, because she supposedly had dirt on Clinton.

Re: Orange is the new President

I'm not sure why we all want use of military force to be an easy and quick policy option for everyone. It's certainly not a good thing when we do it. It had better be at least as quick and easy as it is for the people knocking on your door. Other views are simply naive. This is how WWI started. And...
