Stannis harming his daughter in any way would make me rage. I guess it'd be for me what the Ramsay/Sansa rape was for so many others.

Um... why does everyone seem to be banned?

Whatever the problem was, it seems to have been fixed.

>implying democrats can pick up IL-13

I don't see why they couldn't. It obviously wasn't close in 2014, but if a progressive like Gill could make it razor thin in 2012, then a less progressive Democrat should be able to win it in a more favorable year than 2014.

If someone like Ann Callis could barely hold Davis under 60%, even in 2014, something is going very right for him.

Callis never seemed like a particularly great candidate and ran a pretty weak campaign in 2014.

my expert forensics analysis has determined that these alleged "chat logs" located in the OP (original posting) are acutally cOMPLETE FABRICATIONS falsely designed to committing of slanderous fraud

my friends this is DEEPLY DISTURBING indeed

I'm not sure if you're lying, trying to be funny, or what.  But either whatever "forensics" you claim to have done were wrong or you're simply lying.  Out of respect, I'm going to assume it is the first, but you should really be more careful before you start making false accusations like this.
You're talking about respect? You consider me as a friend and then you openly try to undermine me by leaking private discussions to my worst political enemy in this game.

The worst part is the fact you couldn't even manage to do the dirty job yourself.


And BK: hahahahaha, it reminds me the time where I was trying to convince the jury that it wasn't Fitzy who said that but someone who impersonated him Tongue.

Unlike Griffin, you're at least entitled to an answer.

As far as I'm concerned, the sort of mentality you displayed when you said that the only way to win was to control everything, when you decided to recruit someone else to the region because one person moved there who *might* not vote for your candidate (kinda paranoid, no?), when you essentially advocated a ruthless win-at-any-cost approach to a f***ing internet game of all things, etc that mentality is one of the biggest things wrong with the game right now.  I sincerely hoped that by putting such a clear example of said mentality on public display that there was some chance some folks here might actually start expecting better from their fellow players.  If there was even a chance of that happening, then it was worth sacrificing any shot I'll ever have at winning anything again in this game.  While it sadly doesn't appear that this has caused anyone here to have a change of heart about how to approach this game, I had to try.  

And while we're on the subject of friendship, your whole attitude during our conversation came across as though you were just trying to use me as a chess piece to get to vote for whomever you wanted.  It came off as though our interactions had no value to you if you didn't think I'd vote for said candidate.  Friendship isn't a game you can cheat at and when you act like it is, people tend not to like it.

You know I get why everyone says you're like Wolfentoad, I can't believe I didn't see it sooner
For people who don't know, Wolfentoad was a 12 years old who accused people of being rapists by PM, who was the definition of a psychopath.
Of course I don't care about the fact he believes that. I will always prefer being deeply hated by half of the people and being deeply beloved by the other part of the game rather than being deeply hated by everyone haha.





I'm not gonna get in another pissing match with you, Griffin.  Life's too short and you're just not worth the time.  Find someone else to drag down your rabbit hole.

Geez, where did you all grow up? I mean, I don't think it's the worst word in the world though I've never used it in the noun form. I'd imagine most have the decency to at least restrain themselves from using it most of the time and from what I've seen, actively discouraging others from doing so.

Stuff like the "r-word campaign" or people complaing about "gay" being used as an adjective to describe something that's stupid/lame are just ensuring people say the words in a demeaning way more often.

Really? From my experience the word 'gay' completely vanished as an insult when I was like ... fourteen. Whether that is because of a changing cultural zeitgeist or because I simply stopped being fourteen is an open question, but I can't imagine using the word gay as a derogatory sense just out of spite caused from someone telling you not to use that word. That seems like the actions of a an arse.

My guess is that it is still fairly common among middle schoolers, although that kinda speaks for itself.

The Kentucky State Board of Elections' website shows the same result as AP and AoSDDHQ - Bevin +83.  But they claim there are still precincts outstanding in Jefferson County (Louisville).

That would be good, I think I saw Comer doing god awful in Jefferson County (one of the lone Heiner strongholds).

Woah, why do you hate Comer so much? I thought your last negative post was being misinterpreted by my brain.

Domestic abuse doesn't play well in the general, you see. And I don't even like Matt Bevin much, I just want crass opportunist Jack Conway to be beat.

Why do you say Conway is a crass opportunist?

Because he is. The man has been on every side of every issue. Even MSNBC moderators like Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews have called him on it.

Could you give actual examples?  I was kind of hoping to learn something Tongue  Lastly, I don't give a fig what the soulless hacks at MSNBC have to say about anything, neither should anyone else.

Mad Max: Fury Road

It's basically a video game, but does have some redeeming features.  The first is that the cinematography, costume design, sound, etc are excellent even for this type of movie.  Secondly, this is probably the closest thing to a female-driven (and perhaps even feminist) action movie I've ever seen.  It's not perfect in this regard (I'm not a fan of how the villain's wives were used, especially in the first act, although even some of them were given occasional bits of characterization), but I liked that they didn't objectify Theron's character (Furiosa) at all, gave her real agency and independence, and made her essentially the main hero of the story with Max relegated to the second fiddle role Furiosa would've been given in any other action movie.  It is also one of the rare times that the relationship between the male and female leads in this sort of movie wasn't sexual or romantic in any way, shape, or form.  They were just to damaged people trying to survive.

On the negative side, the film really isn't about anything (this is an action film, but it isn't enough fun to make the viewer overlook the lack of a real plot) and (odd as this may sounds) takes itself a bit too seriously during one scene in the beginning of the third act.  Additionally, although the movie is only two hours, it feels about twice as long and simply isn't enough fun for that not to become a real problem by the end of the second act.  Lastly, there's a really dumb subplot (if you can call it that) in which one of the minor bad guys does a pretty dumb and random Heel Face Turn when the character probably should've just been killed off in the first act to cut down on the runtime.

All things considered, I'd give it a C+

Can whoever's causing the late LKP surges to stop, at least for this vote? At least let us have female emancipation!

No, Kreisky is a Nazi apologist and thus completely unfit to be dog catcher.

But what if the KPO wins? They won't have Kreisky as Chancellor.

They might form a coalition with his party and give him major input on policy and besides, they're Communists.

I actually don't get your SPÍ hate in this. If it's because of Nazis, there is not and was not a dime worth of difference between any of the parties, despite maybe the Communists.

Kreisky is one of the worst because he's a Jewish apologist for Austrian Nazis.  I will likely shift to another party sooner rather than later though.  I'll start supporting a different party once Kurt Waldheim inevitably rears his ugly face.
