Re: Pompeo setting a trap for Biden?

Depends on your definition of fisticuffs. If you count a couple of naval vessels getting too enthusiastic in a game of chicken and accidentally ramming each other, probably quite high. If you mean a genuine conflict with significant forces shooting at each other for a significant period of time... I...

Re: Guess the Word

The word is a lie. It doesn’t exist. Jamie just plans to drag this out for a few days before selecting a word he thinks is rather clever from the list of answers and pretending it was that all along. A scheme of such vile corruption and blatant disregard for one's fellow man has not been seen since ...

A common noun that describes an object...

Is it a rude word of the sort you might find etched on to a school desk?
It is not a rude word.
It isn't???

You've let me down, you've let webDip down, you've let your parents down, you've let your friends down. But most importantly you've let yourself down :(

Re: Can You Pass A US Citizenship Exam?

I got one asking what Benjamin Franklin was famous for wrong because the question writer had erroneously omitted being a traitorous cur from the choices.

Re: Can You Pass A US Citizenship Exam?

12? That's... ridiculously easy. I have no idea what a lot of the questions actually mean, but most them can be worked out with a bit of common sense. I have never heard, for example, of the "Constitutional Convention", but when asked what happened there it's not a massive leap to select the choice ...

Re: There was massive fraud; Trump won, you're all clueless

That much is evident from just his Twitter feed, no need to reveal him soliciting fraud... No it isn't. Trump's twitter feed is the Trump brand packaged for public consumption. A leaked phone conversation is, in theory at least, the uncut truth. They are nothing like the same level of evidence. You...

You've been inventing things I've not actually said again, haven't you? There's still time to make stopping that your new year's resolution, you know. It's a rather unfortunate habit for someone who likes to think of themselves as a man of reason. Kinda like a vegan who enjoys their weekly steak nig...

Re: There was massive fraud; Trump won, you're all clueless

Now that is rather curious. Who do you think leaked it? On the face of it it appears to be a strong indicator that Trump genuinely believes the voter fraud argument he's been making, which is something of a shock. Of course, if it was Trump himself who leaked it then it seems likely this was the des...

Re: US authoritarianism

If you're going to invent stories for which there's no evidence you could at least be a bit more creative about it ;). But yeah, it's a crap system that's been a crap system since time immemorial and no one has done a damn thing to fix it. American politics in a nutshell, some might say. Maybe Trump...

There is a term for someone that is on one side of the debate but pretends to be a supporter of the other side but has "concerns".

Re: US authoritarianism

In his world there are only two options - "Trump institutes a coup" or "no cause for concern". Following this logic, if Trump isn't successful with his coup then there was no cause for concern. QED.
