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

Let's not forget that this old, straight, white man tried to make it a federal felony to participate in a boycott of Israel.

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

The part you quoted is quite clear. Pence makes the declaration, with cabinet support. Trump sends the letter to Congress, reinstating himself, and fires the disloyal cabinet. Pence would have another declaration waiting to be sent, knowing this would happen, and then Congress has to assemble within...

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

Not exactly. The 25th Amendment allows for the VP to declare the president "unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office" (and the president to challenge the assertion, and Congress to decide), and Article II allows Congress to impeach a president for "high crimes and misd...

Re: State of the Brontos

I managed to figure it out, apparently something turned on tracking protection somehow and that breaks tweet embeds. Turning it off specifically for brontoforum.us gets them working again.

Re: DIRTY SANTA 2017: YOU MADE IT

I'm still an asshole who hasn't sent mine out, I'm trying to find the time and energy to dig some stuff up I wanna put in it. I'm not gonna open the one I got until I have. I don't think I've earned it?

Things haven't been great.

Re: State of the Brontos

... so, seriously, did anything change on the boards? Did the plugin change? Because it works on Chrome but not Firefox, and literally nothing about Firefox changed from when it did work.

Re: State of the Brontos

So, the twitter plugin seems to have stopped working, at least on my end at least. I can't see embedded tweets. Dunno why. No Ghostery or anything, have uBlock Origin but that worked fine up until like ... last night? And turning it off changes nothing.

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

As was pointed out in one of those twitter threads, the problem with the book wasn't that it was hateful garbage. It was that it was poorly cited. The editor wanted to help Milo repackage it to be more accessible and sell better, and didn't publish it largely because he failed to write it.

I'm a bit familiar with the SCP Foundation, it just seemed like a total non sequitur.

Re: Our Collapsing Civilization

Yeah, I know that prisons are slavery. There's a reason I've been banging on about prisons for the better part of my adult life. When the year 2200 rolls around, and people look back at what we did, the same way we look back at what X time period did, and talk about how insanely bad whatever they d...

Re: Netflix and Kill Me

Its your own fault for watching something written by Max Landis. He's got some great elevator pitches, but has an aversion to world-building that could only come from deep childhood trauma caused by lego abuse. Also he accepts culpability about as well as Hillary Clinton, so I don't expect it to ch...

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

Because the GOP showed up after the recount was done with one extra shady-looking ballot.
