    Kevin got a reaction from MightyRay in Christmas 2017 (Christmas Haul/General Topic)   
    Just recently came back from spending Christmas with the family and I could have asked for a better Christmas trip if I’ve tried! The best Christmas present I got this year was my cousin surprising me by coming a day earlier than expected. We’ve become very close over the past few years and we’ve been so excited to see each other. Needless tloss say we had a great time hanging out with each other. 
    As for the rest of my gifts, I got some Amazon and iTunes gift cards, a new mattress cover, an extra shaver and electric toothbrush, and a waterpix flossed.

    Now that I've digested the news and breathed a sigh of relief, here's my more detailed thoughts on the results:
    First, let me start by saying that I didn't expect Jones to win. I really thought even after everything Moore has said and done and the allegations surrounding him, he'd still win since Alabama is one of the most Republican leaning states in the country. Honestly, had it been Strange running against Jones, it'd be a different result.
    Let's face it, outside his core base, Moore was widely disliked even after putting the sexual allegations aside. I'm betting deep down inside, the Republicans are breathing a sigh of relief that they don't have to deal with him in the Senate.
    Give credit to the higher Democratic turnout, especially the African-American turnout for helping Jones win. It also wouldn't surprise me if those who'd normally voted Republican either did a write-in or stayed home.
    One could also say this was a rejection of Trump and Bannon, and that may be true, but the real answer to that question will be next year's election.
    With the way things are currently going, I think this is a warning shot to the GOP. I understand that anything can still happened between now and next November and that the current party in power tends to lose in mid-terms, but right now, things are not looking good for the GOP.

    A fifth woman has now come forward with an accusation against Moore. I have a feeling that more accusations and denouncements are coming. This isn’t over. Not by a long shot.

    Oh those wins last night were glorious! It definitely sends a signal of how things will go in 2018 if things continue to go that way.
    People are saying that this was a referendum on Trump, and while that may be true, history shows that the incumbent’s party tends to lose in midterms.

    Just caught up on all the news and holy shit, what a mess! Even though I was mainly a lurker there, I'm hoping that Evilore won't be getting away with his sexual harassment this time, especially if he did it before and admitted to it. This is one of the biggest gaming forums on the internet and it's going to a huge fall if it closes up for good.
    With that being said, I'm glad to see the issue of sexual harassment coming to light. It's a very serious issue that needs to be given more awareness.

    Well supposedly we'll know how gets the first charges in Muller's investigation consider it's been said they'd be taken into custody as early as Monday. Who does everyone think will be indicted and do you think there's a good chance that Trump will fire Muller?

    Kevin got a reaction from Patticus in Chester Bennington (Linkin Park vocalist) has commited suicide at 41...   
    Linkin Park had a profound effect on our generation. Growing up, I remember around the time of their rise everything was mostly boy band and sweet pop. In comes this band called Linkin Park with a completely different style and actually connected with us teenagers who were going through lots of shit at the time. I remember In The End being played constantly and how everyone knew the lyrics by heart. While I myself am not a big heavy-style music person or the biggest Linkin Park fan, I very much appreciate how much they have influenced and helped others through their music.
    Having lost a family friend due to suicide, this news hits me even harder. It was something I never saw coming and it was heart wrenching for her mother to go through. I still think about him to this day.

    Man, Genndy Tartakovsky is giving no fucks! That last scene was clearly shoehorned in to get a reaction out of the fans, and boy did the ship sail! I do agree with Bea The Bee that the animation in this episode felt off though.

    It was absolutely sickening to watch this pass! This is a bill that got no score from the CBO and no hearings and even worse is they have the gall exempt themselves from being affected by this terrible bill.
    I was born 3 months premature with a ton of health problems that be considered pre-existing conditions. Even though I'm covered through an employer plan, if this get signed into law, I may never be able to get insurance because of my pre-existing conditions. Millions of people are going to lose insurance and it's horrifying to see the GOP celebrating this. I want to say that I hope that the Senate will have a brain and consider this DOA, but I'm not so sure.
    Oh and that press conference....dear god that was painful to watch! The "leadership" and "determination" of the President? Yeah right! This bill, which the public hates was rammed through! I'm really hoping that those who've voted for this bill lose their political careers in '18 and '20.

    After the insult Trump gave to Dickerson of "Face The Nation", you've got to hand it to Colbert for delivering this epic monologue.
