Thread: President Donald Trump

  1. #7461
    I think that in retrospect, at the point where the political chatter became increasingly confrontational, the best path would have been a private polling of the then-regulars on whether to double-down with a "hot topics" thread - or to get rid of that stuff entirely from a fantasy baseball site.

    then at least the result would have been what a majority of regulars sought.

    I mean, I didn't think of it at the time either - so it's not a criticism. more of a lament.

    My question would be--Why?

    Every one of us has a choice to come into this subforum or not to.

    I don't go into the regular topic sports bar because the topics aren't my cup of tea (one can only get into so many Ärtist de Jour, song draft threads and keep one's sanity

    I don't enter the non baseball sports threads and when I do read the baseball forum, I only open topics I want to read about.

    I don't understand why you can't be happy doing the same --It's obvious you're not happy dealing with this sub forum and it's atmosphere.

    In any case, as someone who's been here since the sites inception, I'm absolutely against eliminating the Sports Bar from RJ. That includes the Hot Topic sub forum.
    If I whisper my wicked marching orders into the ether with no regard to where or how they may bear fruit, I am blameless should a broken spirit carry those orders out upon the innocent, for it was not my hand that took the action merely my lips which let slip their darkest wish. ~Daniel Devereaux 2011

    Trump has been bringing up attacking hurricanes with bombing, including nuking a hurricane.

    I did not enjoy the cult film Idiocracy, but I gotta say this real life simulation is even worse.

    GITH, you have won the war.

    I believe that most (kind of) current and mainly departed posters do not share your view, so your victory ultimately may ring hollow. maybe some founders will regret handing you and your brethren the keys, but that's for them to decide. this torched, barren landscape is yours to - I don't know, enjoy, if that's the word.

    I find it funny that I'm one of the most active political posters on the board, constant article links and quotes and YouTube clips, and yet 90% of it is ignored... yet when I say "ding dong, Koch is dead" it sets off a mini-firestorm...

    I appreciate Judge Jude posting Matt Taibbi highlights, and links to reputable sources (just as 1 example) because it shows he cares about issues. I may disagree with his conclusions, but I appreciate the effort to have an elevated discourse. Most of the right wingers that have left, posted mere opinion and trash, and i largely do not miss their content. I would miss Judge Jude, and many others here. But the bloviating on moral degradation that Teenwolf has wrought?... c'mon... I have a loud and obnoxious style, and if you cross MY perceived line, I call it out. But I do wish people cared more about serious content. I would trade all of the discourse on "tone" to add 1/10th more discourse on substance and we'd be much better off. But if you all prefer hysterically decrying my offensive takedowns of scumbags, there's not much i can do about that. I'm just being me.

    Well, Canadian Trump perhaps if your tone were more civil, there would be more serious content. It amazes me that everyone calls out the real Donald trump for his lack of tone, and that the left is looking for more civil discourse, but here in RJ land it's the left that has lack of tone and civility.

    i have epiphanies like that all the time. for example i was watching a basketball game today and realized pom poms are like a pair of tits. there's 2 of them. they're round. they shake. women play with them. thus instead of having two, cheerleaders have four boobs.

    I think that's somewhat of a generalization, don't you?

    Just an observation - in here I expect mudslinging. However I expect more - much more - from my country's elected leaders (and am constantly amazed that this isn't generally the case).
    It certainly feels that way. But I'm distrustful of that feeling and am curious about evidence.

    Trump uses next year's G-7 meeting to possibly get new business for his sagging Doral Club in Miami. *sigh*

    BIARRITZ, France — President Trump is eyeing a new showcase for his hotel business: next year’s Group of Seven summit.

    The president on Monday used a bilateral meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to plug the Trump National Doral golf resort in Florida, which he touted as a likely location for next year’s G-7 summit.

    “It seems to set up the best,” he said. Among the attributes he cited for the resort: foreign delegations could each have their own buildings; its “very big, great conference rooms”; its “tremendous acreage”; and its proximity to the Miami International Airport, which he said “takes planes from everywhere.”
