Re: Hot game deals

So, is Mass Effect Andromeda fun? It's only ten bucks used at this point. I'm not expecting a good story or a lack of glitches, but they at least didn't manage to make the game play worse than ME2, right? It's fine. No aspect of it is better than the previous trilogy but the core components of Mass...

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

Now, I see three possibilities here: 1) Michael Wolff is an animagus. He knows what Murdoch said when he got off the phone because he was in the room, spying on him in the form of a Wolff-spider. 2) As Rupert Murdoch's biographer, Michael Wolff has unprecedented access to Rupert Murdoch, who willin...

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

A lesser sidebar issue is that if Conyers is taken down because of a leaked confidential settlement, we need to see every single one of them.

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

Yeah, I'm not surprised the actual party doesn't want to oust Franken and Conyers (and Conyers is probably untouchable in general) but I expected more from liberals who had me convinced these past few weeks that we were actually going to start taking sexual harassment and abuse seriously only to giv...

Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

Virtue-signalling internet lynch mobs continue to make me extremely uncomfortable, no matter where they lie on the political spectrum.

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

I'm honestly a little surprised McConnell et al have condemned him as strongly as they have. They may hate Moore - he was never their guy, of course - but they really, really cannot afford to lose this seat.

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick

The point is that calling these schmucks "Nazis" is like calling griefers in CoD "Green Berets". Let's just call a spade a spade here and refer to these Old Navy mosquito torch motherfuckers as "Wannazis". come on, man; the nazis around the time of the Beer Hall Putsch...

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

It's my understanding that the reconciliation rules limit the number of bills passed using that method—the fact that this failed under reconciliation does not eliminate it from future attempts, and even if it did, the fiscal year ends in like two months anyway. The one justification I could see for...

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

FTR while on some level I feel inclined to the smugness I felt when Scalia died because here, too, is a man who is making life actively worse for a large number of people simply through inertia (IOW, retire bitch), there are two mitigating factors 1) McCain is a legit war hero whereas Scalia never d...

Yeah, Up Simba pretty much sums up my feelings on McCain and he has done literally nothing since the 2000 election to change that view

I'm pretty much just raiding these days; otherwise just logging in to do emissary quests over lunch.
