  1. There was a point in time where Republicans cared about our allies.
  2. Even the saturnine Russian foreign minister, Sergey V. Lavrov, happily noted the strains, remarking that the Euro-Atlantic relationship had become increasingly “tense.” “We see new cracks forming, and old cracks deepening,” Mr. Lavrov said. The Europeans no longer believe that Washington will change, not when Mr. Trump sees traditional allies as economic rivals and leadership as diktat. His distaste for multilateralism and international cooperation is a challenge to the very heart of what Europe is and needs to be in order to have an impact in the world. But beyond the Trump administration, an increasing number of Europeans say they believe that relations with the United States will never be the same again. Karl Kaiser, a longtime analyst of German-American relations, said, “Two years of Mr. Trump, and a majority of French and Germans now trust Russia and China more than the United States.” Angela Merkel of Germany — who delivered an unusually passionate speech — and from her defense minister, Ursula von der Leyen... They cited Mr. Trump’s recent announcements that American troops would leave northern Syria and Afghanistan, as well as the administration’s decision to suspend one of the last remaining arms-control agreements: the ban on land-based intermediate range missiles. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/17/world/europe/trump-international-relations-munich.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage This fits nicely.
  3. If you take the collective of the right at this moment in time it’s a bunch of rednecks clutching their pearls, guns, and bibles. Obama only got 2/3rds of it right, but that seems like ages ago and a different time.
  4. What exactly did Trump solve with North Korea? I’ve yet to hear an explanation. Kim still has Nuclear Warheads. He is still processing technology for ICBMs. He’s more of a threat now than ever because he’s been given cover.
  5. It’s an amalgamation of the conspiracy theorists with a ton of white people who feel left behind to go along with innate bias and prejudice being inflamed by the racists. I quoted it the other day: “I’ll tell you what’s at the bottom of it,” he said. “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.” Johnson was an intelligent man though and knew what he was saying. Trump is a puppet imo whose strings are being pulled by men much smarter than him.
  6. Just to add onto this for a second: he was blasted last night so there was no filter and all truth. His sensibilities, even as a top bartender who pulls a ton of girls from all over the world, was still disgusted. Think about that for a second. Ole boy is out banging chicks on a global scale and has literally no time for politics...yet he went off on the matter for about two minutes saying basically these exact words. Funny how life works that you posted this the next morning. I just let him have at it.
  7. The strange part of where our country sits is the fact everyone who recognizes this also recognizes the fact that 3.5 out of every 10 supports it.
  8. One of my good friends, an Englishman, Stryder, told me just tonight how much of an abomination the man is and what it symbolizes to the world. The guy is a top 100 bartender in the world as well as a top DJ, goes by DJ Storm Trooper. He’s traveled the world likely more than anyone on this board. Everything he said strangely backs this article to a T.
  9. People calling out Obama over possibly lying about being a White Sox fan = Republicans in 2019.
  10. This entire display over the past 10 years has been a massive exposition of the truthfulness of Dunning Krueger. Inside of this narrow construct I don’t believe it’s as necessary to call out bullshit as it is in other arenas. We all come here because we enjoy the dialogue. But you are an engineer so feel free to call those fucks out any time, but just keep in mind how insulated and wonderful this place really is.
  11. I’ve been saying this for years. There are a lot of them. People like Ben and Tux posting on a Titans message board as they do should be a warning that we are in pretty deep water here. Thankfully the massive majority of them are old white rednecks with a beer belly and ED. It is kind of scary watching people on a Titan message board call for outright civil war though. Trump needs to be removed in 2020 and not by Mueller imo.
  12. Take that a step further: he’s defunding key segments of our counter narcotics division to get it done. Shameless stupidity.
  13. Bringing up the House and Senate reports released by Republicans is quite hilarious. Did they even make their findings public?
  14. Notice he called her out today and said she was off the reservation. The idiot can’t even keep his troops in line because he runs his mouth so much.
  15. If he’s there in the second I wouldn’t hesitate. He moves just like Casey. Guys that big who can move laterally and burst have freak ankles.
  16. And by real Americans I mean all of the people who really aren’t paying attention and haven’t just dug in on one side. We know where the idiots stand. They think a dictator is awesome as long as it allows them to think the brown people on the south of the border can’t steal their Walmart job and will continue to live in worse places than their apartments and trailers.
  17. I really hope you’re wrong. Americans, even those distracted with kids and 60 hour a week jobs, should inherently feel this is wrong and stand by that fact. Our history is one of checks and balances to make sure we do not end up with a dictator. We’ve fought 5 major dictatorships or oligarchs in our history (England, Germany, Italy, Soviets, and China) albeit some of them were indirectly. If this doesn’t stir the pot of patriotism then I don’t know what will. We are not a monarchy and Trump is not king. He went so far as to say he didn’t need to do it. Any real American that hears those words should be fucking furious.
  18. I’m not a Mariota hater like you, but this is exactly right. The only way this makes sense is if it’s a one year deal (not likely happening) or they want him as a long term backup for when we draft a QB next year.
  19. The only way this reasoning makes sense is the idea that we are not going to re-sign Marcus and will then have a QBOF first round next year on a rookie contract. Otherwise let Marcus sink or swim. Does anyone actually want to see Case Keemun as our starting QB next year? Or we re-sign Marcus and have largest cap hit in the league for QBs. I would hope not unless it’s a one year deal I guess.
