So after he is inaugurated we'll stop hearing the "What about Clinton?" deflection? Good, then we don't have a problem.

With any luck? Yep. We'll actually also see if there's "real concerns" or if it's simply a case of the left-wing media and political being so out of touch that they continue down the path of pushing fake news as being real, while screaming "thems are nazi's in the whitehouse!!!!1111" Because they still don't understand why they lost the election.

Remember that neo-nazi meeting that the media was all over? The one where they were screaming "THE END TIMES, THE END TIMES ARE UPON US!" Remember how many people there were? No? Less than 40. There were also nearly 150 reporters to boot. They're doing pretty good making a literal ant hill into a termite mound.

This is true. But do you believe that gives Trump a get out of jail free card for literally anything he does? I don't think "What about Hillary" is a logically sound excuse for anything now that the election is over.

Trump's decisions have to stand scrutiny on their own now dude. Yelling about emails or how crooked Hillary is doesn't help, primarily because most everyone agrees that she is dirty, they just don't agree that it matters anymore.

Trump has yet to actually *be* president on the other hand. He's appointed people for his cabinet, but has not assumed power. If we're(the media and people) going to turn around and claim Trump is all the "evils of the world" while not having any institutionalized power yet, then Clinton is still fair game isn't she. In turn, her connections to the Obama administration.

Until Trump is actually president in ~30 odd days, this is nothing but self-flagellation to make yourself feel better because he was elected.

edit: This is much more a reasonable cause as to the big push on "fake news" however. Massive ratings freefall, and trustworthiness by the public at 6%.

that's where you're wrong. Trump supporters already want me dead, they want to sell out to Russia and steal this nation's wealth. Make no mistake, the war is on, and the bad guys are winning, because people like you refuse to accept what they see with their eyes and hear with their ears. We need to FIGHT!! FIGHT!!! THERE ARE NEO-NAZIs IN THE WHITE HOUSE. We fought a war to slaughter NAZIs and they are here again, and you're telling ME that I'm not helping?

Nice edit there. Too bad you're showing yourself to be so self-absorbed in your own echo chamber, that you need to leave. Perhaps go outside, stop listening to what the media is telling you.

What's the similarity between Clinton and Park?

Dagnamit and loomy, you're not helping. You've managed to be worse than the Trump supporter.

Both were engaged in pay-to-play, with massive amounts of donations from either corporations or other government bodies with speaking appointments and/or promises of "helping hands."

Though right now with Park the more that the case goes on, the more dirty laundry gets into the air. So far there is drug running, actual indoctrination at a all-girls-school. Multiple cases of medical examiners at said school selling and providing drugs to girls at the behest of the president. Selling of access to Samsung, Daewoo, and a couple of other companies. Then there's the crazy stuff like N.Korean influence peddling, that's just hit the news as unconfirmed. Comparatively, you've got Clinton and her foundation. Selling access and taking large sums of money from 3rd parities. Those parties then suddenly being granted access to the highest levels of government or being granted positions in government during Obama's tenure.

A fake news site (Breitbart) calling a legit news source "fake". That's rich. Call me when Breitbart has actual climate scientists working for them and can present some factual studies.

Would that be just like ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR and so on and their fake news? I've still got the newspaper and reel-to-reel recordings of them pushing everything from "the ice age is coming" to "the world is going to starve to death by 1985" to "there will be no trees left by 2000" to "kids will only read about snow in history books by 2010." Or the more modern stuff like "hands up don't shoot" or the media's attempt to claim that the San Bernardino shooter was "linked to gamergate and wearing green and purple."

jesus christ trumpers are the dumbest fucking rocks


2008 [tinfoil intensifies]

Come on guys, there's no way that there's been a child grooming operation in Rotherham that's been going on for 15 years, stop being racist.

2010 [Tinfoil Intensifies]

Come on guys, the government isn't snooping in on all of our data, don't be silly. That would take a giant datacenter in Utah the likes of which would never be possible.

2015 [tinfoil intensifies]

Come on guys, there's no way that there's a Shaman controlling the South Korean president. That would be a modern day Rasputin, stop believing in stupid conspiracy theories when we have Occams razer.

Don't worry, we already know it. Facts hurt you feelings. No no, it's just a giant conspiracy theory guys! That's why a sitting president was just impeached.

Buddy, you got played so hard, and we're all going to pay for it. Your team's letter might be by his name, but Trump is not on your side.

You mean besides the source report on itself? That sucker is full of so many maybe, anonymous insiders and so on that it makes the WMD report on Iraq look credible.

Shifting the topic a bit, anyone been paying attention to S.Korea? No? Well they just impeached their president for basically doing what Hillary Clinton was doing.

First one of course. Witcher 3's first area though, it's very easy to get hung up on "oh boy, let's explore!"

Strangely, I could never get into Mask of the Betrayer for NWN2 - no idea why. It looks as though it should be really fun, and the reviews were excellent.

That's because it starts out very slowly, but once it kicks in it becomes great. The start-lag to actually get you involved reminds me of The Witcher. I hate the first chapter in the Witcher with a passion, but once you're out of that the game is amazing.

Wow. That's melodramatic. Did you know every website can alter what you post? And there are still records of this.

And this all stemmed from him shutting down a pizzagate sub. Pizzagate, for those of you blissfully unaware, was the_Donald and KotakuInAction regulars posting LinkedIn profiles of people they thought ran a pedophile ring with Hillary Clinton.

Nuke them all. Bottom of the Internet.
Nice of you to turn around and lie through you teeth there beamer. Think you mean, it was information pulled directly from the podesta and DNC emails that are on wikileaks. And that there were an awful lot of coincidences between pedophile slang in those emails and what pedophiles use to flag out their preferences for fucking little kids.


I doubt it. I use Reddit almost exclusively for subjects that don't even need to be censored. There are 100's of thousands of sub-reddits that move along just fine. If a few get twisted over this and go to Voat to keep it alive, so be it. Who in their right mind would want to be associated in any way with this drivel? Anything that is on the fringe of Reddit if it was gone... I wouldn't even know it.

Fringe? You mean like /r/politics or /r/worldnews? A couple of subs which actively censor things that don't fit in the groupthink, one of the reasons why people are going anywhere else? Or do you means subs like /r/european which were banned? Because they dared to post things that weren't politically correct. Well, after the new top-mod leaks came out. I wouldn't trust most subs these days, especially subs with large groups of power moderators.

The trolls got trolled and now they're crying bloody murder about it. I find it very amusing.

Except that's not the case. Just think, what the CEO has done has turned around and made sure that Reddit is now no longer covered under the Safe Harbor provisions. Enjoy that gigantic bowl of worms to start with. Now think a bit deeper. Can you prove that a persons comment was actually their comment? In let's say...hate speech? Nope. Incitement for terrorism? Nope. Now they've introduced a strong point of doubt, because the administration has shown they can edit and leave no evidence of tampering.

How about all that subpenaed information? Same deal. And we're just getting started. That's what his little temper tantrum has put into motion. Oh yes, it's very amusing. Not so much for the CEO, or what their engineers are going to have to do in order to fix this. Or that he's just nuked his(and the sites) credibility from orbit. I'm guessing 2 years from now? This will be the action that led to reddit's death.

That's not even touching on other subs, like SRS, circlebroke and so on which routinely engage in rule breaking from doxing to harassment to brigading. But they seem to want to go after T_D for whatever reason. Or the massive amounts of censorship in worldnews, politics, and so on. Especially if you're engaging in wrong-think.

No one cares about Clinton anymore dude. Two failed runs for President, unlikely to ever run for public office again. It's only going to get more and more impossible to get anyone to go after them.

Well no one cared about Jimmy Savalie either, until it came to light that there was 30+ years of him screwing pre-teen girls, and literally the political, social and media elite in the UK was neck deep in it as well. Going as far being directly involved and telling the police not to investigate it.

Noticed something interesting the other day though, you see all those pictures of Clinton? How she suddenly looks so "ill and worn out" after losing? Smells a bit rotten to me, almost like they're trying to setup a "Look at her, she so sick, and ill. You shouldn't go after her for doing all those things! You should just pardon her, and close that chapter of history."


Bodolza wrote on Nov 21, 2016, 13:22:
Yes they did. You haven't been paying attention.
You mean they didn't. Sorry, the media didn't dig into the DNC leaks. They didn't dig into the pay-for-access by individuals into the clinton camp. They actually did their best to bury it, and ran with the "russia made those emails" or "the hacks were because russia" or something along those lines. Hitting the media low point of "if you look at those leaks on wikileaks, it's illegal. Unless you're media like us."

This is not the first. It's been happening for about 200 years. You are either grossly misinformed or a liar.
So, people caught paying for access. And a person who was SoS, shouldn't be held to account not only for breaking the law but ethical policies that exist? Are you ignorant or a shill?

The "so on" includes members of both parties, and the current President Elect who has actually bragged about doing it.
Ah no. Those "so on" members in the DNC and other leaks show that this was directly coming out of the clinton camp, and out of the clinton foundation. Nice try to shift, but don't worry. I'm sure that the $0.01183 will be deposited into your account by the end of the day.

I mean, those don't involve someone currently in government, let alone President, do they?

You mean besides someone who was once president. Someone who ran for president. Something that the media didn't cover. The very first scandal about "selling access" oh...there's quite a few of those people involved in government, many still in government. Several of whom are still in the clinton foundation, work in the DNC, and so on.

yeah, glad that they just lost time of their life instead of something real. something real like your life, your home or your family, when you are an alcohol abuser or some other vile form of addict.

i'd rather look upon my years of WoW i had as the opportunity i used to befriend many people all over my country and finding the one woman in my life. with which i have a house and soon a family. that is a bit more optimistic than your outlook. i hope you reserve some of your views for the drug addicts near trainstations or gamblers which get tossed on the street.

Similar thoughts on that. When I broke my back a few years ago, it was the people I met in WoW that kept my spirits up. Helped me make sure I wasn't abusing the narcotics I took, and all that jazz. Those were the same people who had their own trials that I talked to them about. From the guy who was suffering at the hands of an abusive wife and finally got away from her. To the girl in university who was working on her doctorate in bio-chem, and thought "oh god, I can't do this anymore." I don't play these days, but I do keep in touch with the guildies and randoms I knew and new people I met. And they were from all over this spinning rock. And in the years I've met a few of them, but sadly they weren't "fat 12 yr old nerd who hasn't showered." Thin, overweight, fit, ultra athletic, take your pick. Ugly, incredibly hot, in-between. Yep all there. WoW was and some would likely say one of those games that crossed every barrier and brought people in.

It's lasted through two different video drivers. And it's always one time slow, one time fast. One time slow, one time fast. I think they just forgot to take a "decrypt shader cache" command out of there, but the game's been out nearly two weeks now, and still no fucking patch in sight.

Ah well, I should have known better than to trust Bethesda to deliver something properly.

Lasting through 2 doesn't really mean much. The skyrim problem I mentioned lasted around 4 months for me, through multiple driver releases too. Though if you're right about it being a shader cache problem, you should be able to sniff that out pretty quick with a debugger.

Gonna toss this bit of OT stuff in. Since there was some people talking about Planet Coaster and the new RCT title. And it's rather funny.

How about you first do a philosophy of Fix Your Three Fucking Minute Load Times To Get To The First Menu. Followed by one of Fix Your Shitty Performance.

Sounds like you've got something else going on. Doesn't take me more then 35 seconds. And that's on a 5 year old 7200 rpm 2TB seagate drive. I've had similar problems in the past with skyrim. Literal 5 minute load times, the culprit? Video drivers.

If you're concerned about what's going on in the paved streets, you're looking the the wrong way.
Pro Tip: You need to be looking at who will soon be in the White House.
Because if you did, you would be joining those in the streets.

Yes, because paid agitators by moveon, answer and other leftwing groups, destroying property isn't a problem. Nope, not at all. The problem is the anti-establishment candidate and the fact that the DNC threw their rulebook out the window and fixed their own primary process along the way.

But hey, let's complain about Trump! Never mind that garbage like TPP is dead. That shitty trade deals like NAFTA will likely die. Or that the previous president has racked up so much debt that it was more than every other president combined. But let's pick the corporate candidate that would continue the crony capitalism, unrestrained QE, and was pro-importing labor to replace people inside the US.

Yeah, he campaigned on anti-DC corruption and isolationism. He went after sacred cows that neither part would touch like the lobbying ban and a more isolationist foreign policy. Anti-free trade too.

Now he's installing the worst of the Bush Neocons and stocking his team with lobbyists.

Not fair!

Useful tip: Shit like TPP, NAFTA and so on aren't free trade. They're fair trade.

By the way, anyone else remember when people on the right were rioting in the streets over Clinton or Obama? Yeah...me either. Keep digging, and showing why people think and believe the left are fully unhinged.
