  1. Seriously, I think I'll lose what faith I have left in our electoral process if another celebrity with no experience in politics gets anywhere close to becoming President. Got nothing personal against Oprah and she does have the inspiring story of starting from poverty and emerging one of the most powerful women in the world, but normalizing this phenomenon of electing people that haven't even held a job in the public sector would be a sad joke.
  2. On paper, one would expect law enforcement to consistently act by the book and be totally shocked when they don't. In practice, come on. Anyone that's not living under a rock knows full well that too much of the U.S. police force have this inexplicable urge to shoot to kill at the slightest bit of movement.
  3. I really have to ask if you got past the first sentence of your own source and somehow missed that there wasn't a single Democrat among that list of 265 members of Congress before you rushed in with "Well that's not true because it's both sides". Your own source very flatly destroys any notion that Net Neutrality isn't a partisan issue. It has been since Obama became President in 2008. Republican lawmakers overwhelmingly, if not unanimously, are opposed to Net Neutrality.
  4. If the response from the Alabama GOP... and the topic made after this one are indication, we have an actual pedophile to look forward to in the US Senate.
  5. I'm sure most of us are more than familiar with the story by now, but it is one that does call into question what we can unanimously agree to be red lines that shouldn't ever be crossed. https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/woman-says-roy-moore-initiated-sexual-encounter-when-she-was-14-he-was-32/2017/11/09/1f495878-c293-11e7-afe9-4f60b5a6c4a0_story.html?utm_term=.107926a6c2b7 What's interesting that Corfman's account was corroborated by 30 other people who were familiar with Moore during the time period, and there were 3 other girls that told similar tales on how Moore charmed them and asked them out on dates that he tried to escalate sexually. I personally find it difficult to believe that they all just fabricated the stories and they coincidentally had very similar fake tales. Anyways, I thought to post this since we had a similar discussion about whether or not underage teenagers can properly consent to charismatic adults they view as supportive role models awhile back. The answer is no. Should Roy Moore withdraw from the race if the allegations find more corroboration even further? Might this deem someone unfit for Public Office? Should we take a sigh of relief knowing the stories only allege hebephilia and ephebophilia, but not technically pedophilia?

    Racism

  7. Honestly, I have no idea what to make of this. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-41463719 Catalonia has been part of Spain for more than 500 years now and is one of the wealthiest regions in the country. It's pretty evident the Spanish government isn't going to allow a region that's so crucial to their economy to peacefully secede. Additionally, I can't imagine all of those images circulating of police beating up civilians is doing the public approval ratings for the Spanish Government there any favors.

    Racism

    It's probably a bit of both, though the former is the more malicious of the two.

    Racism

    Educated people are generally aware what coded language is and how words can be used dog-whistles to carry connotations something outside their literal definition. They generally don't use the word "niggardly" anymore for the same reason kids aren't named "Hitler" these days and toothbrush mustaches have been out of style since 1945. We all know people online start giggling and feel so clever when they use words that are coincidentally etymological similar to "nigger". Because it's a way of making racially charged comments in a way that can't literally be called out as racist. There's only so many reasons why people would be reluctant to willfully ignore that.

    rip daca (not dakka)

    Same reason why the candidate of "Law and Order" pardoned Joe Arpaio and was unusually reluctant to comment on Charlottesville. Dogwhistling to his base. There is no other reason that would justify deporting 800,000 people, 90% who are employed, based on the faults of their parents.

    Populate sG servers and JB!

    It's a bitter pill to swallow, but I think it's time we finally admit Jailbreak is probably isn't coming back to life this time. If the server didn't revitalize in the summer, which is when our server populations are historically at their best, then I highly doubt it ever will at this point. For whatever reasons, we just simply don't have a stable player base anymore.

    Half-Life 2: Episode Three

    This is probably the closest thing to an official confirmation we'll ever get announcing that Half Life 3 has been cancelled because Valve determined there were more profitable ways of to make money. Though, it is relieving to see this series receive some form of closure. There's no way in hell this isn't Laidlaw criticizing Valve and their new business model of emphasizing micro-transactions in established games and getting teenagers hooked on digital skin gambling, over actually creating new groundbreaking games.
