    The Pet Peeve Thread

    They put the movie back in rotation and I was able to finish it again. Actually watched in twice. Great movie. Great acting. Great music

    POTUS Impeachment Watch

    I'm not worried about it anymore. If the House can get their own proof then this is impeachment 101. If you dont impeach for this then you don't impeach for anything and it should be taken out of the constitution. There's simply no defending this. Let the Senate own their own votes because so many of them are on record.
  3. Congress would override a veto if cocaine Mitch let them. It’s his shutdown as much as trumps.

    This is just an elaborate ploy to get Barr confirmed quickly by eager democrats. Then he will fire Mueller and expose the deep state once and for all

    That’s why Rudy was being Rudy last night. I was skeptical of those theories.

    Potential Democratic Candidates for 2020

    The GOP today is facing the same issues the parties faced when it comes to civil rights and segregation.

    2018-19 Off-season Thread

    I meant in person against the Tigers. I’m not a fan of forced rivalries but at the same time I liked it the few times it seemed like the tigers would play the pirates twice. I suspect the cubs/Sox and royals/cards games do well attendance wise and provide a bump over an existing league matchup The key is keeping it limited I’d also switch up the DH thing so it’s done in opposite parks Overall though I hate pitchers batting You night not know this but a lot of my personal preferences are based on game experiences rather than what I see on TV If I didn’t go to 30 games a year I wouldn’t care Just annoying when I go in my ticket book and see “oh.... the twins again We’re gonna get plouffed
  8. Ok, this is the moment when I use my size and grab you both by the neck, sit you down in a chair, get a beer, slap you across the face, and say cool it, drink your beer, light up a smoke of your choice if you do that, and be good. You're both good dudes who shouldn't be doing this. Each of you be the bigger man and move on.
  9. Why are certain words capitalized? In a real Presidency this would be written by a professional... not someone displaying 6th grade writing aptitude.
  10. Guys, stop. Just quit it. This is a silly thing over semantics. Nobody wants anybody's daughter to be raped. Stop it or else I'm going to issue temporary bans. Just don't reply to each other on this anymore.

    An Insidious Trend

    You mean the people like... unnamed family members of mine, who, when asked if anybody else needs anything, say No, then when the server brings over the water that was just requested by someone else say "Oh excuse me... can I get some tea?"???? Then when the tea arrives they say "Oh, we need more bread...." I get so embarrassed. Or they want something and start frantically looking around as if they should just be standing there waiting..... "Where is she?????" "Probably getting someone else's food..."

    I believe it does.... at least for 1/3 of the clubs and that's good enough. As a fan I like it. I'd rather see the Dodgers or even Pirates instead of another game with the White Sox or Rays. I liked it before when there was "Interleague week" though rather than scattered throughout. But I know that's necessary now due to the # of teams in each league.
  14. What's the point of this? I'm curious.

    An Insidious Trend

    My wife wants to go on a cruise and i have no interest for reasons like that. I'd feel trapped and the idea of having to carry around money and tip all the time would drive me nuts. I prefer all inclusive vacations when we do something like that. Maybe it's more expensive but I don't care.... I am there to relax and don't want to worry about any of that. You eat, get up and leave. The resorts we go to explicitly say no tipping. Signs everywhere.

    I think it helped him in a few races... and that was the goal. The house was lost. And that was pretty much across the board. Not sure that stuff helped any R house candidate.

    I think it helped in a few senate races too.... throw in Indiana as another state that probably hurt the D on that coverage. I'd also throw out that what was a factor in hurt some D candidates is that the senate race in 2018 were for winners in the 2012 election. Romney got poor turnout. In traditional R states like Indiana and MO, that could have propped up a weaker D candidate. Didn't McCaskill run against a stained candidate in 2012? Akin?

    Another caveat by Natasha Bertrand was “what about the candidate?” They keep saying the “president”.

    Rudy had a memorable appearance on CNN tonight. They’ve done moved the goalposts. Officially

    Political Pot-pourri

    My friend was arguing with me on the Internet about politics. He’s one of my oldest friends. He said something like “even the vape store guy knows this”. That sort of broke it up.
  22. What happened to "Russia's our biggest threat" in 2012?
