Only 13 seconds?  I mean, thats pretty quick.  You know him, he likes to soak it in for a while.

Also, totally lied about hush money payments to his porn mistress as we saw from the revealed court documents.

When The Onion needs to write a positive, normal sounding article about Trump to still be satire.

1 main point of all 4 women:

Social security is socialist.  Public schools are socialist.  Ya know, fyi.

To be fair, none of those things or people are inherently socialist. Don't fall for the trap from republican brainlets who think socialism is the government doing stuff. If it doesn't involve advocating for the workers to control the means of production, it plainly is not socialism.
I disagree.  Controlling the means of production is communism, which is a form of socialism but not socialism as a whole.  To me socialism is the government providing a service for the benefit of society as a whole.

Trump is simply speaking out loud what every sane person in the US feels at the moment.

MLK, Jr. would disown every single one these supposed Democrats.

Please, do tell me the main points all 4 women have about America thats bad?

Please note that Trump himself said America was bad too, ya know before he got elected.

B) Omar is in the country illegally. She is a noted Anti-Semite.
And Obama was an illegal president.  Right.... ::)
Also, just assuming she managed to get forged documents and bribes to get through not only election officials but republican research teams (but not you, obviously)..... This is not a point Omar is making about America thats bad.  So I guess you couldn't find anything eh?

III) Pressley thinks that people of color should all have the same thoughts and ideas...if not, they need to keep their mouths shut.
Dunno about that but I know Trump feels that way about Americans.

四) Tailib, also an Anti-Semite who thinks there is nothing wrong with yelling, "motherfucker," at a gathering of friends.
So Trump insulting, using crude language with co-stars is fine but that isn't?  This js also not anything against America. 
Also, does getting mad about her use of "Motherfucker" mean you're an offended libtard snowflake?  Need a safe place from the big bad women?

Please note Trump never stated America was bad.

Please note he stated those things that were wrong.
Please quote me any of those women doing something different.  Saying America is bad.

Quote
Please note he only stated he would make it right and make it great again.

Please note it is.

Please note it will continue to get better.

Please note the truth is not lost on his supporters.

Please note there will be continued weeping and gnashing of teeth in November of 2020...

Please note our beloved and illustrious SUPREME LEADER!!!

Please note these 4 women will not be doing anything but whining and bitching for the rest of their miserable lives.
Yeah... See I heard most of the whining and bitching from republicans for 8 years.  Know what I think?  I think the insane and delusional always view themselves as right, even when they're wrong.

Isn't it funny. The Squad is speaking up about the problems that exist in this country and that translates into hatred for America.

Trump built his campaign on the notion that there were deep problems with the country that needed to be fixed, hence "Make America Great Again". But he's a patriot, and they should go back where they came from (The Bronx, Detroit, and Chicago, in the case of three of the four women he was addressing)...

What difference is there, aside from skin color?

I don't think anybody other than the moronic, racist deplorables who make up his base is buying it. Or the notion that Pelosi and the Dems in Congress are supporting socialism by defending the targets of his vicious attacks, for that matter. That's just silly on the face of it.

But this is what he thinks he needs. He thinks that riling up those racist deplorables who make up his base is all he needs to do to win again. His other defense of those attacks? A lot of people agree with him! Well yes! As we've all been reminded in the past decade or so, and especially since Trump got elected, there are a lot of racists in this country! He is now baldly acknowledging that he recognizes that he got elected in the first place on the backs of racists. And why not? Even if he came out and said  "I am a racist" his collaborators in Congress would probably still support him! Of course his base will too as that's how he got elected in the first place.

Even when he tries to justify his words, surely with the help of professional Republican spin doctors who are used to cleaning up messes like this, he sounds like a racist. And again, it doesn't matter, unless it disgusts enough people in the handful of states that matter in the next election that he's voted out.

I'm not a religious man, but... let's pray.

You think he needs spin doctors?

His own supporters do it for him.
And for a guy who "always says what he means" they sure do interprete alot.

I'm guessing thorking as the text says a file is called thork.mp4 which I'm half sure you don't use as your pc name or account name.  But I could be wrong.

However, from a 4-dimensional perspective, there is no time and no beginning or end. Everything is seen all at once: past, present, and future are known all at once. So where is free will? How can you change the future if it is already in the picture?
I never understand this argument.
I've said this before but if I offer you the choice of two activities, one you hate doing and one you really enjoy, you're going to choose the one you enjoy.
If I know your preferences well enough I might know what you're going to choose, but I'm still giving you the same choice.
The only difference is my knowledge, nothing else about your experience of the choice changes. You are free to choose whichever you wish.

Let's say you're watching a sports event live on TV and I am watching it on an internet stream which is delayed from the TV broadcast by a minute.
You know ahead of me what is going to happen but unless you tell me my experience of watching the event is exactly the same as yours.
Your foreknowledge of what I'm about to see in no way changes what I see or how I react to it.

The argument, although fun to think about, is flawed in the sense that there is no way to prove any of it. Does the 4th dimension exist? I think it does, but that is my personal belief.

Here is a thought exercise:

Let's say you have two choices, pizza or spaghetti.

At this particular cross-road, you have a decision to make - "what will I eat?"

Suppose I choose pizza (because who wouldn't?!), and now I have gone down the pizza road. The choice was made, however, since I can never go back in time to re-evaluate that choice (at that time), did I really have a choice? Was eating spaghetti (at that junction) ever REALLY a choice? How can you say it was a choice? Regardless how many 'branches' there are on the road, you can ultimately only go down one road. So, philosophically, you will never know if you ACTUALLY had the choice, or if the choice had you.

That is another way to look at it.....

Suppose it is not us who makes the choice, but rather the choice that makes us? Maybe each pathway chooses us, rather than we choosing the pathway? Again, how can you prove or disprove such a thing?

The 4th dimension is time.  Time exists.  We know because we have memory.

And while I see the philosophical view, well... You still have a choice.  It may be predictable but its still a choice.

I was discussing with a friend earlier whether Trump is actually stupid or just pretending to be.
We were talking about Trump and Boris Johnson.
The way I see it, Boris's bumbling buffoon is a thin veneer beneath which lies a very cunning and intelligent person.
Trump is just a proper idiot. He knows how to whip up a crowd and he says things which superficially appeal to a certain demographic but I don't think it's an act.
I don't think he's shrewd, he's just a boarish oaf.

I've pondered along those lines a time or two.....

This is a double-edged sword. I would like to think Trump is literally just an idiot, and not pretending to be, but then roughly half of the US are also idiots because they voted for him. If Trump is pretending to be an idiot, that would hint at a larger conspiracy for which Trump is nothing more than a smoke screen to capture the American media along with the majority of American's influenced by media. That is a scary thought.... what is REALLY going on behind the curtain if our government has engineered this chaos?

I think its kinda both but shallow.
Like he says these things because it riles up his base and he loves the praise.
He has teams of people telling him what to say for the biggest cheers.
He watches Fox and tweets when he see's something that makes him mad.
He assumes a position of power and to him, power is making others weaker.  So things like sudden, public firings or name calling are all ways to belittle his enemies so he appears stronger.

In the end, its all about him.  America could fall and as long as people loved him, he would not care.

God like he doesn't understand how racist he is.  Or he does and doesn't care.
The worrying thing is none of his supporters care.
The crass impression of someone with disabilities should have been the end of him.
The grab 'em by the pussy tape should have been the end of him.
A load of things since should have been. But it doesn't matter. Much of what he says isn't true. Just clearly and demonstrably false. And it doesn't matter. There is no consequence.
It's pretty scary stuff.

He has the following of a fascist leader without the actual skill to use it beyond his own ego.

His reply is priceless.

Congresswomen Denounce Trump Tweets Telling Them To 'Go Back' To Their Home Countries https://n.pr/2YYbhEw

Trump: You're muslim so go back and fix your own country!
Dems:... 3 of us. ARE Americans you racist!
Trump: See, they always call their enemies racists!  Dems, you should stop them, its bad.

God like he doesn't understand how racist he is.  Or he does and doesn't care.

Or...this, like many others, are coded messages for help.

Like this one, if we assume he knows they're Americans, then it means he's telling us that America's government is a catastrophy, corrupt, and failed and he needs help.

We need to save Trump from whoever is keeping him there.

The POTUS mentions Bitcoin by name for the first time in history

Am I missing something?  Because either Trump is endorsing bitcoin or he's attacking it.  He doesn't have another mode.  So he attacked it?

Have you tried clicking the link immediately above the paragraph you quoted to see what he actually said?
No.

-ok, so he attacked it.
Great.  I'll go delete my shitposting now.

Meh.  Trump could be on tape raping 14 year old girls in 1992 and he'd still have all his supporters.
There is nothing short of him switching to the democratic ticket that will stop his supporters from supporting him.  Well, maybe if he took away their guns.  But that's it.

« on: July 08, 2019, 06:31:57 PM »
Well the reviews are in.

From what I can tell, both the new video cards and processors give more bang for your buck than Intel or NVidia, but both still hold the lead in terms of power and tech.  (Ray tracing support on NVidia being a big one)

Still gonna go for the Ryzen 3700X with the  MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS, S-AM4 motherboard, and the Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200MHz 16GB.

Probably around Sept. or Oct.
