    This question is so loaded it's battling the baked potato for space on the menu.
    This is why I don't need help answering it. Maybe if the GOP sees some of us do care, they'll start at least doing the lipservice mainstream Dems are.
    I'm with Sippy on this one. Somehow the government is at once incompetent and can't do anything but so laser-focused dangerous that they could swoop in and grab all the guns and establish a police state on short order and maintain it.
    There's historical precedent. Let's just say... the efficiency was a myth. <_<

    Considering a Koch-backed study found universal healthcare would save a couple trillion in the long run, fix it.
    My choice as well.
    More conservative areas would be negatively impacted by this in the long run. Do the bare minimums and not teach "controversial" topics like evolution and actual US history, and little to no sex education (there's a reason the states with the highest rates of teen pregnancy are all conservative states).

    This would also serve to kill off rural and low pop regions even faster. Young people are already leaving them for more opportunities in or closer to cities, why would they send their kids to a school that's barely funded by people who probably don't even want to pay school taxes?
    I have so many problems with GOP "education policy." Maybe this is a shot at getting them to at least change course a single degree?

    Or at least making it known that at least some of us don't want history and biology classes to start with, "Genesis 1:1 - In the beginning (at 10 AM EST on October 6th 3761 BC!)..."
    Seriously, Moff, why are you registered with this party?
    I've answered this before, Popey. Closed primaries and living in a red county. If I want any say in how my day-to-day affairs go... well...

    Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!
    A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, canít be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion?
    THE RIGGED AND CORRUPT MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!
    Actual quotes from the president. Guy has tissue paper-thin skin and as usual declares the media as an enemy of the people because he is incapable of handling criticism.

    Do you not recall the sweeping and foundation-rattling "Two Scoops" controversy that nearly felled the Trump Administration?

    I'm in the Discord, I just never have it open.

    Also, looking at...your and Popey's channel for anime and seeing a pic with a siege tower in it...I like that there are siege tower units in AoK. Dunno if they're a mod or one of the addons, but I'm also miffed because I developed a siege tower concept around 15 years ago and never got credit for it. Well, that's not entirely true...the guy who built the first working prototype credited me, so there's that I guess.

    That and figuring out how to make sailable ice without using triggers, mods, special units, or hacks.

    No, Pino is Big Bird except blue.

    Apparently it was intended as part of a PSA to get Dutch companies to research what the potential consequences of Brexit will be for them so they'll be better prepared. Though I question how you could possibly prepare for something that's so volatile at this point.

    That reminds me; the other day there was an article in the local newspaper about how Remain voters are squirreling away enough food to survive an apocalypse. That bad, huh?

    From what I've understood, it's more like Brexit negatively impacts us the least-- but it still impacts us negatively overall. We've gotten most of what little benefit there is to be had from all this, but at the end of the day the havoc Brexit will unleash on the economy will still outweigh that. A solid border materializing between us and the UK is going to be a major headache for us as well. Supplying on demand for British supermarkets was a sweet gig.

    Today, Dutch customs intercepted and seized a smuggled shipment of booze in Rotterdam, which was officially going from St. Petersburg to China-- but in actuality to North Korea. It contained no less than 90 thousand bottles of vodka, which Kim Jong Un had apparently bought. No doubt those were meant to keep North Korea's elite happy and complacent (while of course the masses can only dream of such luxuries). Apparently it's not even a good brand of Russian vodka.

    Take one down, pass it around, 89,999 bottles of vodka on the wall...

    Well, it's from the European side of Russia. So yes, sailing allllll the way around Europe, Africa, and Asia might actually be faster, or at least easier, than trucking it all the way across Russia by land. Welcome to the country that's the entire f*cking length of Asia and then some.

    It's just straight up supervillain behaviour that Kim Jong-un would take an armoured luxury train through the length of China, sipping on champagne and taking to bed pretty female attendants, rather than catch a plane like normal people of means do in the 21st Century.

    Well, whatever, just f**king shots exchanged between two hostile nuclear powers. Now, in important news, Brie Larson had released another statement about the upcoming Captain Marvel release...

    Ah, good. NBC news actually came on. What do they say?

    3. Cohen
    ...And back to Chicago Fire?
