    DISQUALIFYING



    What is he doing. I ... I mean, everyone doesn't have to eat them like do (I like to unravel them!) but ... oh boy. This is the biggest food crime since Mitt said his favorite meat was "hot dog."

    Or eating pizza with a fork? All the signs were there! Why was no one paying attention!? From 2011.



    Dafuqqqqq????

    A lot of people are asking why am I using plastic forks and knives that the pizza parlor gave. Well, I don’t walk around with forks and knives, and frankly, it was very comfortable. Plus, this way you can take the top of the pizza off so you’re not just eating the crust. I like to not eat the crust so we can keep the weight down at least as good as possible.

    I will knife and fork if the pizza is set on my table IMMEDIATELY after the oven. But for like one piece, half a piece till it cools down. I don't have pizza patience to wait ENTIRELY. But eating every slice entirely that way was a terrible warning sign and let us not overlook Jon Stewart's nightly tirades about this offense.

    I think Trump's bigger food crime is well done steaks with ketchup. *barf*

    Oh Christ! No wonder he has no idea what a good steak is!

    That's how my parents used to make steaks when I was a kid. I hated steaks until I tasted a correctly cooked one.

    Me too! Some of my family is still like that and we have to cater to them. Fuck that. They can take the properly cooked meat and then go microwave it until it's gray and dry. Don't take away my pink. I don't eat a lot of red meat so when I do, I want it to be good. Or at least edible.

    I don't think anyone here likes Bloomberg and we're all familiar with his choices as NYC mayor, but this is a good thread. And one of the comments summed it up perfectly: "Ok, Bloomer."


    He opposes legalizing marijuana and criminal justice reform; used the "gateway drug" argument.

    He's against investing in tech education in public schools because -get this- "we invest in computers and then they're used for porn and to plagiarize homework" , verbatim.

    I could spend a whole thread just on this but there's more to cover.

    He's against minimum wage and regulation around income and aid for poor Americans who have to hold several jobs just to make ends meet

    Literally said "you can't train people to do tech jobs, they're just not wired that way" when asked about tech education to mitigate job loss because of AI advances

    He ranted for several minutes about younger generations wanting to retire (?) and how that makes things hard on the economy #okboomer

    at some point said "women all of a sudden have opportunities now" so there are 2 bread winners in every family...

    Sorry Mike, ALL OF A SUDDEN?

    And finally, he said "we need to go back to how things were done in Clinton days, when he'd get 3 democrats, 3 Republicans and take them golfing, then go lock themselves in a room, close the door, smoke cigars and make all the decisions" (all men implied)

    In conclusion, pls don't.
    Speaking as someone whose town has connections to him, he's also stingy with philanthropic measures in his communities. People don't even bother to ask him for assistance. And maybe he has personal issues that make him not want to help certain places because of bad memories or something, but it mostly feels like "I got mine so fuck you" vibes.

    Every time you rabbit on like this I wonder if Vladimir Putin is actually paying you good money in exchange for your service.


    @Ryan, You have no idea how much I appreciate what you've done here at the forum. I haven't been here much because every time I visit, I feel I should make some kind of effort to express how much you guys have meant to me over the years, and I haven't figured out how to do that yet.

    I turned on MSNBC to watch the impeachment hearings and instead I’m having to listen to Deval Patrick blather on about his candidacy for president. I wish people would stop jumping in at this point.

    On the other hand, Adam Schiff is kicking ass.

    The gentleman is not recognized! *BOOM*!

    That gentleman is not recognized either! *Boom-Boom!*


    Come to think of it, does anybody know what the story is behind Adam Schiff having the same exact name as the character from Law & Order? I love that guy.

    I mean, the thing is that if we're honest, Gabbard has buttloads more experience than Buttigieg. So, I think we can genuinely suggest that she's qualified, but has shitty politics or is a shitty person. Buttigieg on the other hand, is certain not all humans deserve to be treated like humans (edit: meaning he's a moderate) and is one of the least qualified candidates to ever poll as high as he is polling. I mean, really, the only reason we're considering him is because of Donald Trump having won. What makes him more qualified than Tulsi Gabbard? Not that we should support Tulsi, but if we're strictly talking qualifications, it's likely that the person with 20 years experience and held the one of the party's highest positions is more qualified than a small town mayor with whom he has a questionable relationship.

    What's to stop him? Dems can't get their shit together and now more are thinking of running. Another 4 years of 45 will finish the destruction of the country. If free elections are still a thing in 2024, Don Jr. will run and the Trumpists will vote him in. No elections? Trump until he dies, followed by Don Jr. until he dies.

    Weirdly, the good thing about this terrible cult of personality is that I think it's non-transferable. Jr got booed by people further to the right last week. No one falls for Ivanka's shit except the NYT. Eric? Ha. And the other two don't count. If the Big Macs took out Trump today, these people aren't going to vote for Pence in the primaries or general en masse.

    I mean, they still would probably vote R *if* they voted, but the loyalty and devotion is single-sourced, imo.

    Hey frens! ! Haven't posted here in a long while. How are you all holding up in the Trump years? Who do you support for 2020? The ambiance here is like we're all huddled in a bunker

    Sounds about right! Except for, like, if they fuck up in a major way, I suspect the military will just start appointing people
