Ukraine at the same level as Poland? Hmm...

It's not great, but I still think there's a significant difference.
4  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Tillerson: Human Rights are no longer condition for US foreign policy on: May 03, 2017, 03:15:20 pm
The human rights never were an actual condition for US foreign policy. Learn some history people.

well, sometimes...and at least this was a very effective fig leaf which other countries took so literally, they worked with a similar approach.

and the US is not winning anything with this kind of "honesty".

I understand, I'm just tired with people living in the bubble, implying everything was warm and fuzzy before Trump. It's not just stupidity, it's a very dangerous myth.

Sparky, you are asking the wrong people here.  You should PM Inks for dating advice, since he is the Atlas forum guru on that subject:

Sorry if this is stupid question but who run this website? It says "Dave Leip's U.S. Atlas" but is the forum run by same Dave Leip or other people?

Leip runs the main website, and is technically the highest ranking forum member, but much of the forum is run by others.

Ok thanks. So Dave Leip owns  both the website and the forum?

Yes. Dave used to be more involved in Forum affairs, but he's largely absent nowadays.

Everyone on here needs to take things a lot less seriously.

How does this contradict me disagreeing with a power-crazy mod who is overreacting to a ton of sh[inks]? I'd say that I've been very consistent!

Well, you've been very committed to escalating the drama beyond that.

Literally all we've done is pointed out exactly what you've done and what it means, and that's the responsibility of members of any member of this forum. If you don't don't want drama to surround your actions, don't do stupid sh[inks] in the first place.

Were you not the one who escalated the entire situation with Averroes, by taking a post by him that wasn't even directed at you and decided the best course of action was to leak his reports? That's escalation; commenting on what you've done after the fact is not.

You know, there's a way to comment without increasing vitriol.

Then why are you pressing on with this?

Guys, this particular talk can only degrade further. Let's just resume giving me a hell and drop the Hitler thing.

We have a very strong contender!

Girl: Uh hey Sparky, are you just waiting around outside my class?
Sparky: N-n-no. I have been meaning to tel--
Girl: ...okay. Um. Well I have to go. I'm, er, busy.
Sparky: O-o-okay. *fidgets* Uh... I will follow you!
Girl:
Sparky: H-hey. Look at this bench. Why do you think someone would *cough* leave a flower there?
Girl:
Sparky (sweating profusely): Uhhh. W-will you marry me?
Girl: wtf no, get away from me you creep
Spark: Y-you match my... criteria for a suitable interest.
Girl: *running screaming for campus security*

This girl has never met me before ...

In my case, the dialogue would go like this:

Girl: Uh hey Tender, are you just waiting around outside my class?
Tender: *staring at her from top to bottom for 1 minute, using a big fat Wink*
Girl: *running screaming for campus security*

That would be... pretty tame.

True.

So true

Liberal smugness personified, continuing in The Daily Show's established tradition of detached center-left political commentary in which most of the attempts at humor comprise lazy vulgarity or pointless pop culture references. ("Hahaha! They're referencing things I know!")
