Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
sure, but is it going to be Bannonbart vs. Trump or vs. the Globalist Cucks surrounding Trump in the White House? I'm sure Bannon recognizes just how dumb and useless Trump is individually.

If,  by "globalist cucks" you mean dog whistling for the anti-semitic crowd,  I'm hoping Team Bannonbart goes directly after first jew/daughter Ivanka and first jew-in-law Jared Kushner.  Crushing those two would inflict the most damage on Trump. 

Team Bannonbart vs Ivanka & Jared Kushner
It's officially GAME ON,  per reporting & supporting links which appear on mediaite.com  (dated 8.20.2017)

The mediaite.com article links to Breitbart's lead story:
(Breitbart) "Report: Ivanka Trump Helped Push Steve Bannon out of the White House".

The Breitbart report leads to an aggregated Daily mail story:
(Daily Mail) reporting: "How Jewish convert Ivanka got 'Bannon the Barbarian' to go: Trump's daughter 'helped to force out' aide blamed over President's failure to condemn neo-Nazi rally"

The core of the Daily Mail story:
Quote
Donald Trump's controversial aide Steve Bannon was 'pushed out' by his daughter Ivanka and her husband because his far-Right views clashed with their Jewish faith, according to Washington sources.

Chief strategist Bannon, 63, helped orchestrate the US President's stunning election victory but was vilified for his extreme opinions.

Many blamed him for Trump's failure last week to condemn neo-Nazis after a violent rally in Virginia at which a woman was killed and dozens were injured.

First daughter Ivanka converted to Orthodox Judaism when she wed millionaire businessman Jared Kushner in 2009.

The couple have three children. A source said: 'Jared and Ivanka helped push him out. They were concerned about how they were being viewed by the Jewish community.'

Nobody is absolved from anything. All of us are racist or prejudiced to some degree or another  and there is no excuse for it.

^ And here is Dave making a weak correlation between implicit bias and the contentious behavior exhibited by white supremacists.

Dave, does this comping mechanism make you feel less slimy amongst the other deplorables in the basket you reside in?

It probably would have been fine if Melania went on her own.

Trump is unable to attend a public or cultural event, unless the audience is stacked with wall-to-wall shills.

Melania must be sad. She likes to dress-up and you can't wear formal attire to a Trump rally.

wonder how much this is going to hurt Trump in the long run with his populist base
[.....]

By the looks of Breitart senior-editor-at-large Joel Pollak's initial reaction tweet to Bannon's ouster  (posted below), along the reader comment section on Breitbart.com, civil war has been declared in Trumpville.

And does it not give you pause, when you consider that you and the Nazis share such enthusiasm for the same president?
What do you think they think he's going to do to advance their cause?  And are you sure he isn't?

 Again... Logic fail.
 Your university probably has a logic class. You should enroll.

On second thought, dont. Instead, come visit me here in Missouri and will go meet some farmers and ranchers. They have much better logic than what you can learn in a class.

Here's the thing about the "logic" of the farmer/ranchers you associate with...
Missouri ranks in the Top Ten of hate group states in the US.

So, I'm betting half my chips your farmers/rancher buddies belong to one or more of the 22 active Missouri hate groups listed here:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The "logic" of  *racists & bigots ranges between widespread forms of stupidity & ignorance,
to mentally troubled individuals who often exhibit conduct disorder.
 
* and by racists & bigots, I am referring to you, and your Missouri farmer/rancher buddies, and Donald Trump.
  Because bigoted birds of a feather flock together.

Dave is in the basket of deplorables.
I know you guys enjoy debating with the nutjob.
But it's pretty disturbing what's underneath Dave's skin.

Not confirmed, but initial reports identifying the suspect/driver as Driss Oukabir.
Known to law enforcement, having previous arrest(s).

Philosophy / Re: Is there a perfect moment?
"Is there a perfect moment?"

Yes. Most often, you see perfect moments documented and captured in a photograph.
Not every photograph, but some prime examples can be found:
worldpressphoto.org/
worldphoto.org/
nationalgeographic.com

Now if you are talking about personal perfect moments, I view those to be more psychological; linked to one's personal state of well being & happiness. More elusive, abstract & serendipitous.

Lol
You read too much fake news.
Tell that to Heather Heyer.
I wonder how Bluffy would feel if someone spouting hatred and bigotry ran over one of his daughters and then someone else justified it by referring to her as a "fat, childless slut".

Dave has a daughter? Is she attractive?

You know.....   the "grab em by the pussy" kind of young & attractive?

So, after being dropped by both GoDaddy & Alphabet/Google, no one would pick them up; Daily Stormer was forced to move to a TOR site.

General Discussion / Re: Electric bike anyone?
Somewhere, TR has an exceptionally long thread about electric bikes going faster than the wind downhill. Lots of heated disagreements on that thread.

Also the secret service is not coming to meeps house over dumb posts on a message board nobody cares about.

Exactly. TR has no internet presence to speak of.
Nobody cares about a message board (like TR) that has more smilies than actual members.

Arts and Entertainment / Re: Game of Thrones Season 7
I think the problem with this season is that the show is compressed into 7 episodes.

The dense story-telling would have benefited from the traditional 10 episodes.

And then, finally wrapping it up with 7 or 8 episodes next year.

Nonetheless, this year's GoT still holds its place as one of the best series currently out there.  
22
honestly it's time for the CIA to take him the fuck out.

Agreed. As much as I would like to see Team Mueller take Trump out, I would much prefer to see Trump die.

Perhaps an accident, where Trump gets pushed  falls down an elevator shaft in Trump Tower.

I would also like to watch Trump tumble all the way down the staircase of Air Force One and break his fat neck.

Or due to an unfortunate set of circumstances, Trump gets decapitated by the helicopter blades of Marine One. As his long tie waves in the wind, still attached to the shirt collar around his severed neck & head.  I would pay to see that.

General Discussion / Re: Electric bike anyone?
I had a long ride on one today, resulting in mixed feelings about the product. The advantages and disadvantages seemed to cancel out somehow, but maybe that is just me.

What make/model/year did you test ride?

The Zero (which Worldtaveller has mentioned) has improved immensely over the past years.
Decent & entertaining review fron gizmag:

2017 model is very expensive (ie overpriced), but as Worldtraveller mentioned, good/practical commuter transport in the right weather conditions.

The sooner Mueller publishes his findings and begins charging Trump associates the better.

Yes. It will be Mueller (and his team of investigators & attorney/prosecutors) who Make America Great Again.
