Who would you kill?
I was having a deep and thoughtful conversation with a beautiful friend and, to my slight surprise, they mentioned that they would be happy to assist with the killing and disposal of several individuals we both know.

Time to end Obama era sanctions on Russia?
Would it be better to let job creating trade flourish rather than hurting both countries economically? Can Russia be our friend?

The Phillipines
Just because i've been away for a few days, somehow there is no thread about this... One news headline (paraphrased) 'ISIS captures city in Philipines!' Is rather click baity... But goes in to refer to the 'Most Catholic country in south east asia'.

This is what colonial/state oppression looks like. As far as anarchist are concerned they are one and the same, the state oppresses its own people, the colonial empire oppress other peoples. In China they have this lovely grey area...

Why is Terrorism the only time people feel a visceral response?
I noticed recently there was an incident where a man crashed his car into multiple people injuring many and killing someone. But because it was not terrorism, people did not seem motivated in the same manner against alcoholism as they would have if he were a terrorist. If he had indeed been from any Muslim country at all, and also under the influence of alcohol, one has to wonder if people would just automatically assume it was a terror plot.

American reporter arrested for asking questions to Trump HHS Secretary
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/10/business/media/reporter-arrested-tom-price.html

Freedom of the press is an integral part of the 1st amendment. Just wondering how rightwing media handled or ignored this story about Dan Heyman, the reporter that was arrested for asking persistent questions to Tom Price, HHS Secretary.

On how PPSC scoring does not encourage players to throw games
In our recent discussion (threadID=1432961), many mods and fellow pillars of the community claimed that when you have two Great Powers in a game that have between 12 and 16 supply centers, one of these Great Powers has a (D) points-incentive to throw the game. I disagreed and this puzzled my fellow users, but only Lethologica took the bait when I explained my position. Here it is again:

Just another example of Trump hypocrisy. He slammed Obama for merely bowing. The curtsy was bigly over the top.

There is apparently a somewhat suspect video of President Trump slightly inclining his neck so that the Saudi King could put a medal on his neck. The video also doesn't show his legs, so there is absolutely 0 evidence of a curtsy. I'm not saying it's a good thing, but it's a far cry from a curtsy or bow.

As curtseys go, it was a "beautiful thing". Daffy Donald, the world's biggest "sooky la la", whining that no other politician has ever had such a hard time as his experience... Clearly he's never heard of Nelson Mandela, or Lech Walesa (? not sure of the spelling of that).
Hauta (1598 D (S))

Trump bows to the extent necessary to receive the medal/necklace. But after, he clearly squats about 2 inches. This can be nothing other than a gesture of respect. A curtsy. I'm fine with a curtsy. After all, who cares right? But Trump slammed Obama for bowing and then did something similar. Worse yet is Fox News, using a still photo on the story to misinform their viewers.

If you look at the pictures I posted, Obama and Trump received the same medal. Here's Bush Jr. receiving the same medal:

Seems to me that neither guy actually did anything out of the ordinary for anyone getting a medal from a much shorter man. Trump tweeting out criticism for Obama without having checked to see if his statements are true it isn't a big shocker either.

I know that many people form their political opinions on the slenderest of information, I suspect that it was ever thus. However, anyone who is better informed, and has the opportunity to hold politicians to account, but doesn't pick them up on such hypocrisy, is complicit.

Juggernaut is actually a horrible alliance
Despite the fearmongering ive seen in Press games about Juggernauts over the past 5 years ive been here...I cant help but note its low rate of success and how its paranoia often benefits France or England most. Please share games where Juggernauts fail miserably. But also include ones which work out in a 2wd (if there even is such a situtation)

Are there any otherkin on this site? I'm genuinely curious to understand this culture more. If you identify as something non-human, do you think you have a right to get the privileges that all humans deserve? Or do you believe you're in a separate category and thus have different standards and base rules to start off with?
