    [–] Reddit, you know it's finally here, right? Upgrades 2 points ago in videos

    I just heard an NPR piece and it was guys from CollegeHumor.com (remember that shit when it was the new thing?!) Saying they were making $30k videos (in production costs) and getting hired by companies to produce videos etc and then Facebook video came and completely destroyed the independent video content because they could no longer make money on it and all the views were moving there....then it turned out so many of the views were completely fake but the damage was done

    Pompeo was like top of his class at West Point...how he has stopped so god damn low and been completely subservient to this moron is a pretty sad turn for someone who started off things with his life so well.

    It's basically a 'You have the position where you could have influence....it would be a good thing to use it while you still have it' - of course there's no official requirement for her to do anything.

    Nobody, not even the lawyers themselves, call themselves Dr. The only title some use - but most don't - is Esq.

    My uncle is a hardcore libertarian and he's a very intelligent guy but the fact that he thinks the free market will protect us from corporations destroying everything around them to make another dollar, believing people just won't buy from them if they do something people consider wrong, is just delusional and we have so many examples pointing to the exact opposite taking place I don't understand how this line of thinking continues

    It's the fact that this doesn't solve any problem and simply is aimed at reversing something from Obama. It's spiteful and childish. If that was the problem then fix it - dont just reverse it all and then proclaim job well done.

    If you didn't know what they were why did you keep insisting abortion was relevant to the 7 deadly sins? You were making an argument before knowing what you were even arguing about. And you literally asked for someone else to write them out for you because you were too lazy to do a simple google search.

    Jesus fucking christ you're slow. Just stop now this is obviously getting too difficult for you

    [–] Just realized how big and majestic the Dodge Charger is Upgrades 1 points ago in cars

    Police do not sell cars from typical arrests - those are impounded and no longer are touched by police. Seizing assets and having your car impounded are two different things

    [–] Just realized how big and majestic the Dodge Charger is Upgrades 1 points ago in cars

    Street racers kill a fair amount of innocent people, either passengers, pedestrians, or other drivers on the road. Arresting someone doing 90 on a 45 mph street is absolutely a benefit to everyone's safety. I don't want that dickhead around me. Go race on the freeway late at night and kill yourself if you're gonna fuck up and flip your car instead of taking others with you

    [–] Just realized how big and majestic the Dodge Charger is Upgrades 1 points ago in cars

    Having your car impounded is different than seizng your car. If you are arrested after being pulled over on in a place cars aren't otherwise allowed to park, they have no choice but to impound your car (tip: try parking in a legal parking place If you know you may get arrested...if they feel nice or don't want to spend time waiting for the tow they can choose to leave your car there)

    Which part was wrong? Have you not heard of people getting royally fucked by civil asset forfeiture? The departments get to keep a cut - it's incentivized at that point. The shooting part everyone is well aware of so I'm guessing you mean the asset forfeiture

    [–] Yovanovitch calls for investigation following evidence released by lawmakers Upgrades 4 points ago in politics

    Well luckily Barr isn't required to approve individual FBI investigations, and good luck coming up with a legit way of shutting it down.

    [–] Yovanovitch calls for investigation following evidence released by lawmakers Upgrades 5 points ago in politics

    Following your own country's ambassador's movements around Ukraine and then reporting many of those steps to someone plotting against her is a weird drinking game

    [–] Yovanovitch calls for investigation following evidence released by lawmakers Upgrades 2 points ago in politics

    It wasn't personal - it was because of her anti-corruption no bullshit job performance in Ukraine.

    The scary thing is that these text messages or whatsapp messages about having eyes on her were from a month before she was told she had to leave immediately.

    [–] Megathread: The US House of Representatives approves measure to restrain President Donald Trump’s actions on Iran Upgrades 5 points ago in politics

    Him fucking up elsewhere isn't helping any forget how badly the guy has previously fucked up. Honestly I think this Iran stuff has likely turned even more people against him who otherwise we're on the border but who have ZERO appetite for war, especially when it'd widely be blamed on Trump's thuggish assassination plot

    [–] Megathread: Qassim Soleimani, head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, killed in Baghdad by U.S. Airstrike Ordered by President Donald Trump Upgrades 10 points ago * (lasted edited 15 days ago) in politics

    I just can't believe we spent SO MUCH TIME AND MONEY AND AMERICAN LIVES - as well as countless Iraqi lives cut short / destroyed - and Iraq is already a place where this Iranian leader is strolling around in Baghdad only a short time after our military wound everything down in Iraq...point being, we got fucking nowhere and accomplished fucking nothing with all that we gave away in the service of 'democracy gavage' while we pretended that they were actually craving it on their own so much that they'd willingly shove it down their own throats as soon as we 'made it safe' to do so. We were shoving a tube down their throats the entire time and they could take it or leave it in the end...

    Democracy has to be fought for and desired by the people the Democratic system is working for, or it'll be easy bastardized and conscripted to do things for powerful individuals in ways that are wholly undemocratic.

    [–] What about a meteorite abilities of chapter 9? Upgrades 2 points ago in Archero

    Ugh I just got to world 9 after not playing for quite a while after being stuck on world 8 - seems like they made it quite easier now. Anyways...picked the ice meteor and holy shit it's awful. It seems to trigger completely randomly, sometimes shooting 4 back to back to back to back followed by long periods of not a single meteor, and all of them are seeming to be aimed AT ME (they don't do damage to me, of course) and not my enemies. It's the stupidest fucking ability EVER and, as you said, it covers so much of the screen that it makes it confusing and difficult to tell where incoming objects are at that I need to dodge. It seems like they didn't even test the god damn ability out themselves with how fucking horrible it is. IT IS HITTING RIGHT AT MY FEET - NOT AT MY ENEMIES!

    [–] Washington Post: Giuliani held back channel phone call with Venezuelan President Upgrades -1 points ago in politics

    No - Ukraine isn't related to this. They're all just separate countries to exploit one way or another for Giuliani and Trump. Giuliani doesn't have some old Ukrainian network of people...they were going after Joe Biden and people came out of the woodwork in Ukraine to exploit Giuliani's and Trump's idiocy and to use them for their own plans there in Ukraine.

    And Trump isn't backstabbing anyone - he's front-stabbing them. There's no lip service being given anywhere. He's telling everyone loud and clear how fucking stupid and crude he is. But, yes, we are not acting as a reliable strategic partner because Trump doesn't know what strategy is so that would be impossible for us to do at the moment, sadly.

    [–] Washington Post: Giuliani held back channel phone call with Venezuelan President Upgrades 2 points ago in politics

    The shit is going to leak out for years to come well after they're all long gone from the white house. You'll get people retiring in all kinds of government agencies, etc. that will all have their own stories of what started happening once Trump took office and how his admin. fucked everyyyything up and we'll also hear about the colossal amount of work it ends up taking to put things back in order as well as the things that couldn't be put back in order because of what they've done. And his former supporters will never hear any of it because they'll only be watching his new TV network. No way he's not going to try and monetize the ever loving shit out of his base once he's out. I can't wait to see countless numbers of them exploited and scammed for everything they've got and still slobbering on his dick.

    [–] Washington Post: Giuliani held back channel phone call with Venezuelan President Upgrades 7 points ago in politics

    They are - they're all morons using personal cell phones. Russia has listened to all of it. So has anyone else with a proper clandestine agency.

    [–] Washington Post: Giuliani held back channel phone call with Venezuelan President Upgrades 2 points ago in politics

    Well, we were the only reason they were able to extract it at all. Once things went to hell, sanctions kicked in, and the western oil experts left town Venezuela's oil production came to a halt, and the oil company IS Venezuela. It employed way too many people as a social program and funded everything the government did to take care of the people.
