BOOM

from the article

Outside court, Manafort attorney Kevin Downing said it was a "tough day" for his client, "but he's accepted responsibility, and he wanted to make sure that his family was able to remain safe and live a good life."

I feel like he has put his family in danger.  Since testifying against organized crime tends to get your family killed.  Admittedly Trump is pretty disorganized. Putin seems quite ready to clean up loose ends though.

UK shouldn't really get a vote should they?  They are quitting the union.

This one is for the technical discussion, the other one is for political stuff...

Well, it passed.  Let's see how this turns out...

That's not filling his diapers. It's campaigning for the midterms with impeachment as a wedge issue. Democrats should be doing it too.  "If Trump doesn't get impeached it's because you stayed home on election day!"

Internal affairs.  A police procedural following the adventures of an internal affairs division at a major city police department. They uncover terrible corruption that costs lives and gets people wrongly imprisoned while bending the rules in ways that would turn out awful in real life.  One should be a sociopath, another cheerfully corrupt.

The character that gets the most screen time is an idealistic officer that just made IA.  He's on a crusade to clean up some piece of corruption that turns out to be a neccessary counterweight to something worse.  As the show goes on he does more and more inexcusable things until he's a complete monster by the end.

The only thing that keeps convincing me to vote Democrat is Republicans. I think that means the two man con is working on me.

I'm a radical. I vote 3rd party when I don't think it will lead to awful. I try to push the Dems left. I hate Clinton, her husband's term led to a lot of what is currently wrong with the country and I know she helped shape his policy. I still voted for her, in the Arizona district where it almost made a difference.

On the other side of the topic I am glad trump is not a utopian, even if many of his supporters are. He's a crook and that leads to a certain sort of mess, the mess when someone takes charge to build the new world is Way worse.

Um... I had to look it up, but the 3rd party candidates in 2008 were:

Ralph Nader
Bob Barr
Chuck Baldwin
Cynthia McKinney


So, uh... who would you have voted for, otherwise?

Nader.  I agree with him far more than I do Obama as far as policy positions.

The nice thing about pathfinder 1 is that it's open source, so while Paizo may not be supporting it any longer anyone else is welcome to do so.

I really enjoyed GURPS with figs withHowl and his gaming crew. (Spotted his comment about it being best without them)

I think with Lieberman as vice he could have beaten Obama.  It would have been two white moderates vs the black guy with the Muslim name.  Instead he went with Caribou Barbie and scared all the people concerned about his frail health.  I know I was considering voting third party until I saw what a nightmare Palin was

Direct subsidies to farmers are a bad idea. Not because farmers don't need help and not because they shouldn't be helped but because it gives them a bunch of money to invest in changing careers at the moment their chosen career looks like a bad idea.  A massive increase in food stamps would be just as good for farmers while also ensuring hungry people get fed

So, had a thing with someone on the FB PF page.

He was bragging that he built this lich whose phylactery will outright kill anyone who destroys it, so someone (12th level characters) will have to die for the campaign arc to end...Because "I like bittersweet endings".

I said that if I were a player in his group, and found out he scripted my character's death, I would be in someone else's group by the following week.

In the same thread, he attacks me for mentioning the fake phylactery/recurring villain gag.  Because it's clearly bullshit to leave a fake phylactery around, but clearly NOT bullshit to mandate a PC's death to make up for lack of story.

This all went very well, with me making fun of him and him getting madder and madder, but then I pushed it too far and he blocked me.  I think it was when I suggested he try BESM, as it was more his speed.

So yes, there really is nothing worse than a bad DM.

He also clearly has not factored in player creativity.  sure, a lich wont die unless his phyalctery is destroyed, but that wont do him much good if he's trapped in an anti magic field in a cage.

Behold: Liberty University's The Trump Prophecy: The Movie

Quote
A collaboration between an independent Christian filmmaker and one of America’s largest evangelical universities is showcasing the growing prominence of a provocative belief about President Donald Trump ― that he was divinely appointed to lead the United States.
