  3. Fallen officer's family snubs McConnell and McCarthy at Jan. 6 gold medal ceremony Officers who responded to the Capitol attack pointedly refused to shake hands with the two GOP leaders as they received top honors from Congress Tuesday. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/12/06/mcconnell-mccarthy-police-gold-medal-ceremony-00072546
  4. What Congress can do with Trump’s tax returns https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2022/12/4/23491593/trump-tax-documents-congress Now that the highest court has decided Trump cannot block congressional committees from obtaining his returns and requested materials, the Senate Finance Committee, which will remain in Democratic control, could step in and request the documents, carrying out its own assessment of the presidential audit process. That, Hemel said, could motivate Congress to make legislative changes to the process if necessary — or “make a referral to the Justice Department for prosecution if the facts warranted.” From there, the committee could release the documents to the full Senate, by making such a referral or designating another legitimate reason to do so. Given the scope of the Ways and Means Committee’s reasoning for requesting Trump’s tax returns, the public likely won’t see those documents any time soon. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t — or that we never will.
  5. The main danger about Ye was that he was embarrassing members the far right such as Alex Jones. He needed to be shut down so they can go back to the usual business tickling the balls of white supremacists.

  8. 'The Mandalorian' Season 3 Sets March Release Date The 'Star Wars' series heads to Mandalore this winter. https://collider.com/the-mandalorian-season-3-release-date-2023/
  9. Surprise, surprise. We already knew Herschel Walker was dtf, but it turns out also doles out physical abuse. And he thinks he's the most qualified to make healthcare decisions for women. It seems like if he wants to improve women's healthcare he should a. Stop hitting them and b. wear a condom.
  10. Really disturbing that a judge allowed it. Kind of reminds me of the Brian Wilson thing.
  11. What James Gunn's 'Kingdom Come' Teaser Could Mean for the DCEU The DC director is “making plans.” https://collider.com/james-gunn-kingdom-come-dc-comics/
  12. Wrong, Burglekutt is clearly the lead and the man in charge. Definitely going to check this out and at least give it a chance.
  13. Well, to be fair he probably has girlfriends in both states.
  14. I agree with a lot of the points about Luthen in this thread, but he's also think he's not the best rebel leader possible. He's just the best for this era because the rebellion has barely kicked off. He's definitely not the best for the New Hope era and we know he's not around there by then. But the rebellion is quite a different beast by then and even has the capacity to mount fleet space battles against the Empire. It's likely Luthen won't even be the best leader possible by season 2. The interactions between Saw Gererra and Luthen were very telling. It isn't clear how he will take the betrayal of Kreeyr, but he not only accepts it, but approves. Actually I think Saw relishes it as it fits into his viewpoint on how to mount rebellion. Making the hard decisions and being the absolute best rebel warrior and hard man possible. The later rebel leaders do make some hard and dark decisions at times, but mainly in extreme situations such as to stop a Death Star. There's just no way though the likes of the honorable warrior Admiral Ackbar would have worked for/with Luthen though. Even if that had came about Luthen would have a large and dark reputation by then. I'm pretty certain Luthen is going to die next season. My guess is there will be a mirror scene with Luthen under the gun of Andor this time, but he will fire. Last thing, this show is very sparing of light-sabre duels and Jedi, but it must be remembered that this is Star Wars and The Force is very much out there. Making immoral decisions is very much not a free thing with only moral costs. It can literally turn people to the dark side, especially if they are important leaders. (And they don't have to be a force user for this to happen) There's actually mechanics for this in the Star Wars tabletop RPGs. Some of the video games, too like Knights of the Old Republic.
  15. The main reason would be if you want to do very little actual work and engage up productivity theatre. As was mentioned, playing online games on the job is ideal for this. It fills 16 hour time spans and gives the impression of a very serious person hard at work at the computer. And Musk himself said that the employees staying are the valuable ones. Musk has set these expectations with his behavior. So tweet and post things at midnight, to show you are still up hard-working. Make sure your badge shows you came in at 0400 and left at midnight. Constantly remind people how hardcore you are, possibly get a tattoo. Remind people how you never sleep and work 120 hour weeks, a practice Musk likes to engage in.
  16. Elon Musk has Twitter and Tesla problems Issues at Tesla are piling up while its boss is distracted by his new company. https://www.vox.com/recode/2022/11/23/23475730/elon-musk-twitter-tesla-stock-acquisition-lawsuits
  17. Biden paused student loan payments again. So the result of all those conservative lawsuits is that a bunch of people that can easily afford to pay won't be paying. Possibly for years.
  18. Walmart worker in Virginia opens fire, killing at least 6, police say The shooting at the Walmart Supercenter was reported to police shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday, police said. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/multiple-fatalities-shooting-virginia-walmart-police-say-rcna58488
  19. If Kanye bothers you just bring up Pete Davidson.
  20. I think he proved this early on when he interrupted Obama's speech. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt that it was political in nature. Possibly he's just a huge racist.
  21. I think that's debating with Democrats. And who knows if that holds up, it depends on who wins the primary I'd guess.
