• The 'Comrade' title is now available in a fetching communist red for purchase by all of you capitalists who survived the Sietch gulag during the people's revolution. And in the spirit of all communists everywhere, it was broken until the capitalist pig dogs fixed it. ;)

  • Sometimes it seems like the only thing I am considered good for by a family and friends is being stepped on, take advantage of, or thrown under the bus to protect thier pride or comfort.

    I'm sorry.

    I suppose at least some of it has to do with your differing political views, if you don't mind me asking? I recall you saying you came from a partisan Democrat household and inherited those views for a time, before discarding them in favor of what's pretty much a "Rooseveltian Right" platform. Perhaps they didn't take kindly to that change, going by what you've said about them.

    No, this goes back much farther than the issues with politics.

    It's been a pattern of behavior since I was pretty young.

    Oh.

    Well, whatever the case, I'm sorry. Hope you find (or have found) different people who you can lean on, as well as some way to stop having to put up with it from your friends and family.

    Well my sis got here car stolen yesterday at lunch.

    Now we get to see how much was actually lost and how much insurance will cover.

    They found the car a few days after, some jackass had taken it for a joyride and left it with smashed out windows in the rain.

    It's totalled, now we just wait to see what they get from insurance.

    Like I said, sorry to hear that. 😟

    Hopefully, there's not too much of a bill to pay. Not to mention how the jackass who stole it ought to have some Karma come his way. 😡
    The amount of otherwise intelligent and insightful people who want to pretend the elite of the US, and world, are not out to remake the game into a neo-fuedal future via the 'Great Reset' and associated policies disturbs me.

    They don't see the writing on the wall, or just do not want to admit they see it.

    I started typing this 3 minutes after you posted it, and have rewritten it several times.

    I couldn't figure out what to say that wasn't just trauma dumping. I am so tired of so much, and feel like...I don't even know. I feel like my own life and situation...

    Is there a term for hopeful for humanity and the long term survival of our species, simply because we will engineer our way around damn near any problem or limit if we are forced to, even if you think your own situation and future is FUBAR and was from the start now, thanks to the Wu Flu and politics?

    If you ever want to speak with me about your fears via PM don't hesitate, keeping them bottled up won't help you in anyway, I know the past year has been eating at you more than most and I understand your frustrations.

    As for your last question? There isn't a term I can think of, but that's a good place to start in thought process wise, in retrospect even as bad things are and might become humanity has survived and overcame many obstacles and been to many dark places that we hopefully will never have to see and as bad as things get we will always strive for something better in spite of it.

    We should remain vigilant, but always remember that time moves ever onward and we should make the best for good or ill and show the best of ourselves while doing so.

    I appreciate that, and thank you for again for the help you've provided before.

    It just feels like on so many level there are no 'right moves' or 'solid plans' for anything, anymore, and we are headed for a 1984 or worse totalitarian hellhole with rapidity I would never have believed, while my personal life is just more bad news every few months it feels.

    I'm not sure anything can really 'fix' stuff in my personal situation, because there are so many things in fluxon so many levels that 'planning' beyond the next week or two feels like an exercise in futility.
    I really wish I had chosen a different airline for my trips this week. Southwest sounds like they've been habitually overbooking flights out of PHX, and they already stuck a half hour delay on my flight today.

    Visiting family/travel prep assistance; dad needed help getting the house set before taking my grandfather back to my uncle.

    I'm sorry to hear that, I hope you get well soon.

    I've been meaning to ask you for a while, I wanted to do it by PMs but I'm still not allowed to use that feature here.

    Is your Code Geass SI story dead or on hiatus?
    Bacle
    Bacle
    That SI is on hiatus, not dead. I have every intention of continuing it, and part of focusing on my writing is so I can get new content out. For most of 2020 the virus and politics took up most of my mental energies, so I didn't write as much as I should have.

    Amir-015
    Okay.

    The main reason why I came here was because I wanted to read more of that story. ^^

    I wanted to see how the SI effects things and how he handles himself with the inevitable butterfly effects.

    The anti-LGB part of the Right will be it's undoing, if they are allowed to take power or dictate policy.

    The LGBs who came over to help and unite under Trump will not forget who stabbed them in the back, if paleo-con control of the Right's views on LGB comes to pass.

    There will be no mercy and no peace with paleo-cons if they try to keep pushing us back into the closet.

    The ban was Zoe throwing a temper tantrum as she tried to destroy this forum, same with a lot of the stupid shit she did since March. Zoe admitted she wanted to kill this site because of us expressing our political views, views that conflicted with her position of power/job IRL, and that she viewed this site as a 'threat' to the nation because we dared to say the election was stolen, Covid is being overhyped, and that Texas is in the right for wanting to succeed, now that the Constitution is a dead letter.

    Looking back, Zoe should have left after her facist quip near the beginning, and given it to Sunhawk then. She may have created this place, but she was toxic to it in the end.

    Yeah, that was a problem from the get go, and Zoe was stuck in the stupid 'civility above all else' mindset of fucking prissy New Englanders.

    She wanted a Veinna Coffeehouse, and when she didn't get that, she decided she had to 'course correct' the site in some of the most hamfisted ways possible.

    She really should have left/sold this place a long time ago; everyone (her included) would have been better off for it.

    Welp SCOTUS just proved that the Constitution is meaningless.
    Bacle
    Bacle
    I know, I saw they decided to be cowards and dodge on the case by not ruling on it's merits, only on Texas's standing.

    There are other cases headed to SCOTUS though, and Trump himself has not filed his case yet.

    So this is a set-back, and sucks, but it is not the end. Even if SCOTUS chickens out on all the cases, there are Congressional methods to deal with the electoral fraud and issues surrounding the election. Trump can still win in several ways, including other SCOTUS cases.

    It's not over till either Trump concedes and/or Biden is sworn in.

    Also, check this out:

    There are state level officials talking about succession as a way to save the Constitution from the Swamp, and they may be right.

    Fair enough. Still, not a great thing, but I can understand why SCOTUS wouldn't want to grant it before the full case is heard.

    And the Texas case seems like it is on much firmer ground, given Texas specifically did not allow the Dominion machines to be used their because of security concerns.

    The moderation on this site has become less coherent, and more knee jerk, since the election and is only getting worse.

    This is the problem with the owner and some Staff also being Fed contractors who value thier jobs above the integrity of our elections and the survival of our Republic.
    Bacle, though I still have serious disagreements with you on some issues, I have come to respect you even more as of late. Since, you have proven that you have clearly defined ideals that you wish to stand up for and you wish to do the right thing.
    So I now have my official Trump hat.

    It's the 'Make Space Great Again' version. I knew something had been shipped from the Trump campaign for me, didn't know what.

    It's like Trump knows I'm a giant space nerd and sci-fi fan.
    It's become evident that trying to be a voice in the middle is pointless on this forum.

    Almost everyone already has entrenched ideological positions, sees compromise as a 4-letter word, and most only care about the 'culture war', not effective governance or trying to heal divides.

    This site is becoming a dark mirror of SBs worst bits with increasing speed.

    Well, for the site, pretty hopeful. Despite the hysterics of some far-right folks, I'm feeling pretty happy about this sites future.
    For the US...that entirely depends on what happens durring the election; not hugely optimistic that even a Trump win will allows things to settle down.
    For Trump winning...fairly hopeful, despite the polls. The GOP is registering more new voters than the Dems, and a lot of them are ex-Dems, or blacks and hispanics.
    For myself...that depends on if I can find a way to live with my TDS afflicted father long term, how an upcoming neurologist appointment goes, if things settle to the point I can find work without worrying about Covid, and whether Trump wins or not. I've basically staked my future on Trump winning, and know if he loses, people like me are going to be purged, either with force or 'social credit' type stuff.
    I've realized that the base of both sides of American politics are as tribal as ever, and only want the center to echo what they think, not criticize their sacred cows.

    I have a home on neither the Right or Left, because they both only tolerate dissent when they feel safe and sure they will win.
