  1. I detest the man, but I'm not a big fan of this. I don't care for rewriting history, and the movie is a product of the times. I got a big kick out of the 40-year-old-Macaulay-Culkin idea, though. That would be pretty awesome.
  2. By the way, most seem to already have forgotten about Trump's call to Brad Raffensperger, though it's part of the Article of Impeachment. That call by itself was justification enough.
  3. Grumps, man, I appreciate it, but you're putting more words in my mouth than I am. First off, we need to clear up that I am not on the left. The vast majority of the time I've voted Republican or Libertarian, so any argument you may posit about a liberal bias fails. If Trump had just said he thought he lost unfairly, then left it alone and conceded (as Hillary did), we wouldn't be discussing this right now. The fact is he keeps pushing it....and pushing, and pushing, and pushing. Once again, without any evidence (though he certainly keeps promising to release it, doesn't he?), and ma
  4. I have no idea what you mean by impeachment being a technicality. Whatever the case, it amazes me how far our standards have fallen for our elected leaders. Propagating the election fraud lie with zero evidence (something that a good number of Republican officials are guilty of) was itself an act of sedition, even if you discount the January 6 speech. Would we as a society ever have accepted it even 10 years ago? This proves how much Trump has changed the equation, and certainly not for the better. As to your other points, in my opinion you're dangerously naive if you think that Trump is
  5. You are completely missing the forest for the trees. You cannot look at this situation as having been caused by this one speech, which seems to be what those who support Trump are doing. From the word go, Trump's rhetoric and demeanor in just about any situation were overly aggressive and rude, many times spilling over into combative and violent. That "Bull in a China Shop" mentality is what endeared him to so many who felt marginalized, but it's constant with him so it became the new normal. Many of those who admired it (I remember how many people described it as "refreshing" and “a bre
  6. I usually try to keep a certain amount of decorum and not fall into the realm of personal attacks, but considering these statements and the fact we're on the smack talk board.....you're an idiot.
  7. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each Hou
  8. Yes, you're absolutely right. Certainly the end goal of every left-winger I know is to turn the country into a cesspool. No better way for them to wallow in their own misery, am I right?
  9. A question: my understanding is that it takes a super-majority to convict someone in an impeachment trial, but only a simple majority to bar them from future public office. The former seems to be in doubt, and may need to be settled by the courts. Do you know if it is the same for the latter? Does the person have to be impeached for the latter to occur?
  10. I'll look into it, because I am curious as to the reasons for suspending the accounts you mention. In regards to the timing, considering the runoffs were basically right at the same time as the Capitol attack, I think it far more likely the latter was the reason for more activity on the parts of the media companies, though I have no proof of that.
  11. I laughed, then thought it's a damn good thing that Trump isn't nearly as intelligent as Putin.
  12.

  13. I don't usually post articles, so I didn't post this one when I read it just before the election. Wish I had. https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/31/opinions/trump-after-the-election-prepare-for-unimaginable-kasparov/index.html ------------------------ Win or lose, with Trump, prepare for the unimaginable after the election By Garry Kasparov Updated 3:58 PM ET, Sat October 31, 2020 Garry Kasparov is the chairman of the Renew Democracy Initiative and the Human Rights Foundation and a former world chess champion.

  14. And he still takes no responsibility for it and says "everyone agrees" his speech was appropriate. The scariest thing is that I no longer believe he could end this by coming out and saying the election was legitimate (not that he would, anyway). It might have an effect on a relative few of his hardcore supporters, but this is now a raging fire that he can no longer control.
