What is this forum about?
Hello guys,

So, I have been browsing the forum a little, but it seems to be more like a Reddit forum where one can throw up anything they want to rather than

It is not OK to punch ISIS and Al qaeda members
If ISIS and Al Qaeda wanted to hold a march calling for death to America and a fundamentalist caliphate to take over the US then any who attack them or inhibit their right to free speech are evil violent people

What do you all think about Faustian stories?
Diplomacy is a great playground for turning on friends for personal advantage, and I'm pretty sure everybody might compromise their held virtues for a little harmless gain in most places of their lives. Do you all think Faustian narratives are on point the more we all trod into the great 21st century, or is the devil obsolete and unversed in the digital age?

When creating a game and selecting the pre-phase length, the description says up to 5 days but the dropdown gives only up to 2.5 days.

If he was a good strategist, what victories has he accomplished? As a strategist, isn't the failures of the administration's legislative agenda mostly on his shoulders?

he was good on the campaign trail during the general election. He has also pushed some executive orders that appeal to the base, but you are right he hasn't gotten anything accomplished legislatively.

You guys are looking at this all wrong. This is an opportunity for Mr. Trump to get even the bester of the best people. He has a very good brain and he will get the best people to join his team. I've said this from the very beginning and he has done that. And he is continuing to do that. He will get the bestest of the best this time and when needed, he will even get more of the bestest of the bestest of the best because he has a very good brain. Nothing he does can ever be wrong. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Mr. Trump is the bestest we have to offer and only the bestest, smartest people with very good brain understand that.

We should have expected this, Zultar hasn't gotten enough +1's this month. One of these days I'll just write a script that gives him 1,000,000 +1's a month to spare us all from these posts.

That would be great, jmo. That would give me a lot of +1s and save me time from illustrating that it is possible to be funny and not post shitty immature jokes that only Chaqa thinks is funny in a shitty attempt in pretending to bring levity to a situation. The overestimation in our own intelligence or sense of humor happens too often for many of us.

Frankly, is there anyone here who doesn't think that if we replace Trump and his entire team with Zultar and the mods the US would come out far ahead in that deal?

Alternatively, they can just form a band called "Zultar and the Mods"

The fascist style of leadership is to set your underlings against each other so they can never hope to challenge you. He's running his administration like The Apprentice, which is a much more scary proposition than it sounds.

That said, this is pretty great. Bannon is a pigfucker and this will alienate Trump's base. Even ND is doubting his God-Emperor.

I have no idea how intelligent he is. It doesn't matter if he's doing this consciously or not; it's still a facet of his personality that tends to accumulate personal power while destabilizing any organization he leads.

"He's running his administration like The Apprentice,"

I kept joking around during the transition process that he was filming all his interviews to make it the new season the the Apprentice. I guess they didn't get enough material.

@_Dargargoyle.. Is that Yankeetalk or Brooklynese ? It read like Brooklynese to me. Doesn't Yankeetalk have much more of a "Southern twang" and display a more fundamental and profound ignorance ? Just askin' ?

Leaving the grey arrow
Is there any bigger asshole than the guy who's doomed to defeat and puts in his moves with a grey arrow so that everyone has to wait a day or more each phase? Of course everyone goes out of town sometimes or is unable to get to the site for some reason, but someone who does it faithfully every turn should be banned. It's the behavior of a crybaby.
