  1. To anyone who says that Democrats and Republicans are the same: Democrats shun their sexual predators. Republicans give their's promotions.

      Not a supporter of the Republicans, but it sometimes irks me when people act like Democrats are any better.

      Democrats are better. Obv there's garbage apples on both side of the aisle but as someone who likes civil liberties, immigration, gay/women/minority rights, common sense regulations involving guns, the environment, and labor, as well as not colluding with Russia and tweeting like a madman; I find that there is one political party that is objectively better than the other in terms of its core beliefs.

      Democrats are at the current moment the FAR lesser of two evils. They have bad people and flawed ideals, but they aren’t trying to be an outright criminal organization desperate to subvert our society for short sighted greed and power grabs.

      Err... Democrats are probably better of the two just because they have some rights regarding the women/black/LGBT/disabled and some decent policies but they don't really have a strong leader, the last one was Obama who they might not get anyone like him again. At least they don't have a current leader who bows down to extremist views to please the extremists that is probably hurting the declining non-extremist Republicans even more but can't say (not all Republican leaders are bad, there were a few decent ones in history and Abe Lincoln is well liked). There seems to be getting more of them, that is even affecting people outside the US with their views and their insults... You can be left wing, you can be right wing, you can even be more of the middle but extremists are just bad on both sides more so on the right (because they can really hurt people rather than just mess up places). That's the thing with America, its ALWAYS those two parties. There's no middle ground, no different parties, you had to be one or the other.

      Then again there are probably a few Democrats who are indeed of the sexual predatory type but they cover themselves up. Like all politicians.

      @RedFox99 To be honest, both parties aren't that great and won't even vote for either. Even where I come from with Labour and Conservatives the major two parties, both have major issues. I'll never vote for the Tories and Labour has some issues of their own. Only vote for Labour out of principle and sometimes I don't even vote! Then again its really down to money a different issue than the US, if you're a working class person you are probably going to go for Labour (left but more to the center) or UKIP (extreme right) but if you have the money you vote for Liberal Democrats (left) or Conservatives (right). The Green Party is the extreme left party btw and usually considered a bit of a joke.

    That's... I... Wow. Just, WOW. You know what the worst part is? It's that, for all the appalling shit listed, the most shocking revelation to come out of this is that Trump knows who Ernest Hemingway was.

    Over 42,000 documents regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh were withheld from Senate Democrats until the day before the hearing. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R, IA) refused to acknowledge the Democrat's request for time to examine the documents before the hearing began. In any other legal proceeding the discovery process would ensure that both sides had access to the evidence and no judge would allow the proceedings to continue until both sides had sufficient time to examine the evidence and prepare a case. This is the kind of blatantly corrupt proceeding you'd expect to see in an Ace Attorney game. The only thing missing is Senate Republicans literally flogging the Democrats. Let Senator Grassley know how disappointed you are in his conduct.
  4. You know what's ironic? The whole point of the "POTUS must be a natural born citizen" rule was to prevent a foreign power from having undue influence over the American government.

  5. You know what would have been nice? If Resistance HQ in Forces had been on Angel Island. I mean, it would make sense, it's the home of the Resistance's leader, it's naturally well defended, and it's home to the most powerful artifact in the known universe.

    It's honestly baffling to me, Sonic Team will jerk off Green Hill and Chemical Plant till their arms fall out of their sockets, yet when it comes to the one Classic locale which has no reason not to be appearing every other game they're like: "Nope! Won't touch that!"

      Why else would Eggy go through the trouble of forming a new Death Egg if he could've use the ARK instead? Because both that and AI are stuck on the human world since Adventure and not the anthro Sonic world.

      Was the AI actually shown in any other post-98 game besides Adventure in "human world" ?

      That would be cumbersome to get to if we're taking regular citizens up there. I mean, it's supposed to be floating up thousands of feet in the air, right? A secure terrestrial base makes far more sense.

      @VEDJ-F Take the Master Emerald out, let it plummet into the ocean, possibly killing tons of refugees in the process due to the tsunami, and take what's left and put the Master Emerald back in :D!

    I'm getting sick of the main four

    Those aren't mutually exclusive you know. Yes, he's gullible and stubborn but his earlier appearances, especially the Adventure games, showed a distinctly contemplative and spiritual aspect of the character. Something sorely missing in later portrayals. Hell, "Unknown from M.E." (especially the SA1 version) is basically an expression of this dichotomy in musical form, alternating between tough-guy rap lyrics (♪Here I come! Rougher than the rest of 'em!♪) and softer, more introspective moments (♪Born on an Island in the heavens...♪) reflecting on Knuckles' ancestry, his sense of duty vs his desire for freedom, his ideological contrast Sonic, and other things which defined his character before he became a walking "strong = stupid" cliche.

    Sonic, Tails, and Amy? Sure. Knuckles? His current dumb jock persona is so far removed from what he used to be that he is, for all intents and purposes, an entirely different person now. Returning him to the philosophical, emerald guarding warrior-monk persona of yore would be tantamount to reintroducing a long forgotten character. Basically "Mighty and Ray in Mania Plus" for the Adventure era.
  8. Even Russia couldn't get people to attend Trump's inauguration.

    A Solo Sonic Game

    No. Just no. No more solo Sonic. No more minimalism. No more "roots". If you look back on the last decade of Sonic games and your biggest complaint is that Tails is too relevant then I'm sorry, but I think the problem may be you.

    The article he's citing comes from a website which literally has the slogan "We report the truth - And leave the Russia-Collusion fairy tale to the Conspiracy media" plastered on it's banner. Suffice it to say we're not dealing with the most credible of news outlets here.
  11. https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/27/us/jacksonville-madden-tournament-shooting/index.html Florida saw another mass shooting yesterday as gunfire erupted during a Madden NFL '19 tournament in Jacksonville. The shooter, 24-year-old David "Bread" Katz of Baltimore opened fire with a handgun during a match, killing two people before shooting himself. Eleven more people were hospitalized in the aftermath of the event, nine with gunshot wounds. All are in stable condition according to a statement given by Sheriff Mike Williams. Katz was a competitive gamer who was known for having won several Madden Tournaments in 2017, police have not yet given a possible motive. Audio of the incident was captured by a live-stream hosted on Twitch. My condolences go to the victim's friends and families.

    I say greet them with and open heart and a firm hand. People can change and I'll be the first to offer forgiveness, though not necessarily absolution, to those who see the error of their ways, and to try and push them to that revelation if they haven't made it themselves. However, until such a time as they express remorse for their actions, I will grant them no sympathy and cede to them no ground.

    I miss having politicians who could be respectful despite disagreeing and competing with each other. Make America Classy Again.
  14. “John McCain and I were members of completely different generations, came from completely different backgrounds, and competed at the highest level of politics but we shared, for all our differences, a fidelity to something higher: The ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched, and sacrificed. We saw our political battles even as something noble, an opportunity to serve as stewards of those high ideals at home and to advance them around the world. We saw the country as a place where anything was possible and citizenship as our patriotic obligation to ensure it forever remains that way. Few of us have been tested the way John once was or required to show the kind of courage he did, but all of us can aspire to the courage to put the greater good above our own. At John’s best he showed us what that means and for that we are all in his debt. Michelle and I send our most heartfelt condolences to Cindy and their family.” -Barack Obama

      His former political rival held him in greater respect than our current president and member of his party.

    All right then, here's a Russia based network reporting on the South African land redistribution three weeks before Trump ever tweeted about, so there's no way it could have been falsified to make him look bad. Guess what? It says exactly the same thing as the sources I listed above. I think it bears repeating that actual Nazis, support Donald Trump because they see him and his policies as supportive of their beliefs. Even after they actually murdered someone who was protesting a march they held, using his name as a rallying cry, Trump refused to distance himself from them, and, when he was finally pressured into condemning them, he equivocated and justified their behavior like there was not tomorrow. No, she said, and I quote: "Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up, and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” In other words, she was encouraging people to exercise their first amendment right to non-violently express their dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs, even if it makes some people uncomfortable. You know, like those "very fine" Nazis were doing in Charlottesville, at least before one of them decided to turn a young woman into a hood ornament.
