I really worry about this hurricane and the people in its path. The government didn't do that great helping out Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Maria. Worse even than the response to Katrina. Hopefully this goes better...

Better watch out Blue. The EU just passed articles 11 & 13, so now you're going to be liable to pay taxes on every single link you post if you serve users across the pond. And liable for any content posted on your forums if you serve users over there. They even have a mechanism to come after you if you're not in the EU.

Yep... this is a reaaaaally bad decision on the part of the EU. Though not a surprising one. There's not a single more pro-corporate pro-copyright body than the EU.

In that same trailer:

"The choices we make, no matter how small, can put us on the path to greatness or lead us down a road to ruin."

and

"There are no wrong paths, no wrong decisions."

We've gone too far in the other direction. Due to multiple disparate health issues, my mother is in massive pain daily. She is allergic to every pain killer except Vicodin. However, no doctor will write he a prescription in the current climate. It's horrible.

My mother has had rheumatoid arthritis since she was 24. She's been on the same dose of oxycodone forever, and even though she's been taking the same drug for an eternity, its always a pain in the ass for her to get her refill. When she switched primary care doctor it was actually pretty difficult to find one that would take a patient who was on oxycodone. When she found one, she got in an argument with him when he wanted to try to switch her to something else because he was skittish about prescribing oxycodone. Her current medication works fine enough for her and she just wants to keep taking it like she has for the like 10-12 years.

With a long term visually obvious painful disability, two knee replacements and two shoulder replacements, she still sometimes gets treated like some kind of junkie.

That's why businesses uses Microsoft Office, and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future.

Yep. The cost of grabbing MS Office licenses is insignificant for most businesses, not worth rocking the boat and making everyone relearn some other user interface potentially lowering productivity.

Steel and aluminum mills are opening again.

While businesses that rely on aluminum and steel are shutting down or are in danger of shutting down because the cost of raw materials has skyrocketed. The best information available currently says Trump's tariffs are going to create like 27k jobs and kill 400k jobs.

What should Trump say to the 15 workers losing their jobs so that 1 other worker somewhere else can keep their job?

Do you have specific examples of prominent left wing or centrist accounts on social media that break TOS without consequence?

What dumbass Trump doesn't understand is that even with tariffs, there's still no incentive to start up expensive factories.

Does Trump think he is President for Life? Whoever comes after him is going to shut down every last fucking tariff, because the stupidity of his tariffs are one of the things most congressional Democrats and Republicans agree on. So unless there's some other candidate waiting in the wings just as stupid as Trump who can pander to the lower 20th percentile of Americans in terms of intelligence, those tariffs aren't going to last.

The same is true of the foreign treaties he's trying to "renegotiate." The reason he can't seem to get a deal worked out is because he has no real leverage. These other countries know he is out in 2024 at the latest. They can just sit on their hands and wait for someone more reasonable to sit at the table.

Whatever happened to Dawn Wells anyway? She is 79 years old. She got divorced in 1967, never remarried, never had kids.

It's not that it is particularly strange. I'll probably die alone in an alley somewhere. But I wouldn't expect that from an attractive actress who apparently worked on the stage for decades. 79 and without a person in the world except fans...

As Nucas said, though, it's bizarre that the Alex Jones crowd in general believes that Facebook and Google are monopolies that need to be treated as public utilities, while the ISPs aren't. How does that make any sense?

Yeah the contradiction there is pretty weird.

Regulating ISPs so that they can't censor, throttle, or otherwise unfairly fuck with you = Bad.

Regulating Social Media companies so that they can't censor, throttle, or otherwise unfairly fuck with you = Good.

It's like every Republican in the country has suddenly developed a split personality where they are able to toggle back and forth between authoritarian and libertarian ideas at will without experiencing a single contradictory thought.

They want small government, until they need someone they don't like to be stepped on, then they want the governments help.

They don't want the government giving taxpayer funded handouts, until they need the handouts themselves.

They don't want to be discriminated against for their religious beliefs, but they want to be able to use those beliefs to discriminate against others.

Trump does not fall into a single political stereotype, and he will drag these megacorporations into government regulation, kicking and screaming. Welcome to the public utilities of the 21st century.

You think any of the corporate stooges he has appointed to various agencies are going to actually ADD regulations? You need to stop eating lead paint chips.

I love watching all the conservatives contort themselves into a pretzel over this shit. They are all about letting corporations do whatever they want, and crying about the free market and peoples right to choose who they do business with.

But then one of their favorite bullshit peddlers gets the axe because he can't behave like a normal human being, and suddenly these people need to be regulated and required by law to allow people do whatever the fuck they want and use THEIR site and bandwidth to do it.

Alex Jones is bad for business.

They drastically over-estimated the desire for a more hardcore WoW.

The leveling process was unusually slow for a modern MMO. The attunement process for raids was difficult even for experienced MMORPG players with a premade group in voice comms. Then they spun up too many servers, which led to ghost towns and players leaving after the initial burst died down. They were too slow to get rid of the 40-man raids when the population wasn't able to sustain them.

I think the game could have been a moderate success if they had made it just a little easier. It's a stylish game, and I found the combat to be really enjoyable for an MMORPG.

Basically they made stupid mistakes which didn't allow them to get a solid playerbase that could fund future content. And a PvE MMO without content is dead.

Hah. Maybe.

As an aside, I never really understood how that's supposed to work. If a white person pointing out shitty parts of white America is a racist, is a black person pointing out shitty parts of black America a racist?

Did they ever give any indication of why Trump's election might have increased their racism or anti-Semitism?
I don't think it increased the amount but it emboldened them. If a racist was elected President then they could "come out of the closet" so to speak. They thought they were the new majority.

I understand that's the reasoning for the more Conservative racists. But Liberals are so vehemently anti-Trump that it's hard to imagine them being MORE likely to voice their racist views.
