On punching nazis
I've decided to appease the centrists. Instead of punching nazis, we'll murder them by drone with no due process.

The new forum system is up and running, and we're ready to let users onto it to test it as we transition to it from this forum.

Probably best if you respond there rather than here, but I guess it doesn't matter:

Why couldn't I move?
Hey I was playing Italy in this game. I tried to have my fleet convoy my army in Tuscany to Smyrna. Neither were being attacked or blocked, but I was unable to make this move. Why? Here's the link to the map: http://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=203295&turn=9&mapType=large

Trump visits West Virginia and promises to "fix" the drug problems there.
Can Trump deliver on this promise ?
MajorMitchell (1033 D)

142 citizens of the USA have fatal drug overdoses every day. That's approximately the death toll of Sept 11 every three weeks. "Prescription" pain killers are a huge part of the problem. Not just heroin, crack cocaine, ice. Trump doesn't say how he will fix the problem, but he has promised to do that. West Virginia is a "basket case" State..needs financial help, ie welfare from States like California via Federal government. Can Trump deliver on his promise ? How ?

Isn't the general GOP response to just lock up everyone who does drugs, ideally with no representation and faked evidence?

Oh, my bad. That's only for black drug users.

But the problem of opiate based painkillers is complex, the suppliers are "legitimate" pharmaceutical companies for a start, and they have significant political influence, via donations and lobbyists

How does that death toll compare to inner city violence, gun crime, and car accidents?

Never mind comparing the number of people killed by sharks compared to the number of people killed by cattle.

What is the difference? Well Dangerous but rare predator vs domesticated animals which are all over the gaff. Same with Sept. 11th attacks. Intentional harm caused by actors trying to harm you - who have reasons that you can try to change vs accidental road collisions caused by people with reasons like - trying to get to work, trying to bring my children to school.

You can't/don't want to change those reasons.

So really, are those two numbers comparable at all? What is your point MM?

Also what is your position on treating people with an addiction as if they have a medical problem rather than a criminal problem? (though this is specific to inner city crime, i think the kind of arguments used transfer fairly well to this: https://www.ted.com/talks/gary_slutkin_let_s_treat_violence_like_a_contagious_disease )

Complex problems require complex solutions. Interdict drug supplies/sources. Confiscate the assets of drug traffickers (over a certain threshold ) improve the controls on "prescription pain kilers" Why is it an either/or choice between a criminal/medical treatment of addicts ? Why can't it be a combination of both ? Look where I am it's after midnight, and I have a big day tomorrow. So I'm going to leave this here for the present. Plus I don't have the qualifications, expertise to provide the definitive solutions, and I never rashly promised to "fix the drug problems of a city, state, or nation". Trump made a bold promise. For the greater good, I hope he actually does deliver on this promise.

This is another empty Trump promise that he'll deal with in the future that will never happen. He still hasn't revealed his tax plan and that's actual legislation among other things as president he should do so why expect something new.
