  1. The hoops you jump through to justify the worst authoritarian impulses of this man are truly astonishing and quite frankly it's why we don't see you as someone that isn't a Trump supporter. The impression you give is to be entirely on the Trump Train. If you can't criticize this with great clarity than I cannot trust your objectivty on that matter.

  3. How many of these trivia questions did you know? Took me about 45 minutes to research this and type this up, so hopefully someone responds: First Chief Justice: John Jay Only justice to be used as a diplomat: John Jay First Chief Justice that was former Assoc. Justice: John Rutledge Only justice to serve but then get unseated by the Senate: John Rutledge Last Judge to wear a full wig at court: William Cushing First Scottish born justice: James Wilson Only justice to go to debter's prison while in office: James Wilson First justice to die in office

  7. Yeah, it's not surprising. No previous president would have even thought about saying that. It's another feather in Trump's authoritarian cap.

  12. No it wouldn't, but them doing this means they want to assure Americans that they won't allow Trump to disrupt a transfer of power. I don't think it changes his mind. It might cause him to backtrack on his comments or clarify them. He's embarrassing.

  16. I see absolutely no problem when the election is decided by the Supreme Court. On the contrary, this could calm down the atmosphere, as a decision by the highest court takes away the legitimacy of any protests from both camps. One could still criticize the ruling obviously, but there is absolutely no encouragement for further violence I believe.

  17. You're ignoring the obvious: what if Biden wins? I do agree that it's likely more bluster and whatnot, getting media attention on himself, than anything, but still, it is a bit worrying.

  18. It's all over the internet. I'm surprised you can find obscure comments about Biden's campaign lid but you can't find a major news item that has the entire media talking about it. GOP members are even distancing themselves from the comments. House Min Ldr McCarthy had to comment that there would be a peaceful transfer if Biden wins. https://apnews.com/article/election-2020-virus-outbreak-voting-elections-voting-fraud-and-irregularities-8bb28627b03474a3a5ce2454ae3d1639 https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/517976-trump-says-he-would-accept-supreme-court-election-ruling-after

  23. I remember when I made a 270Soft forum presidential election you made your candidate from Arkansas. Last name Ackermann, I believe. I think he became the VP in the playthrough. My grandparents retired to Arkansas in a wealthy community in the hills. As a kid, I used to go there at least once a year. It was really pretty. We once went into Little Rock, Hope (Clinton's birth place), Hot Springs, and I remember as a kid (5 or 6 years old) thinking how depressing the cities looked. It seemed like everyone was fat, tired, bored, and bitter. It may just have been that I was focusing on the do

  26. I used to be a heavy chainsmoker, at my peak I would smoke between 1-2 packs of cigarettes a day; I used to smoke cigars as well though. You can find authentic Cubans outside of Cuba if you know the right places to look, but as OP said, most are knock offs, especially if they are being sold in tourist areas. Montecristo, Romeo & Juliet, Cohiba, there are many quality namebrands to choose from if cigar smoking is something that you enjoy. I personally used to inhale when I would smoke them, probably because I was primarily a cigarette smoker that just used to enjoy a good cigar every

  34. also forgot to add that I had some hallucinations after my dad died probably out of grief. In all my hallucinations, I knew they were hallucinations. I never thought they were real.

  35. I've hallucinated a lot of things without any drugs other than coffee, sleep deprivation, not wearing my glasses before I got lasik, and misreading stuff because I read it to fast or misheard something because I wasn't fulling listening to a nearby conversation.

  36. @ThePotatoWalrus forgot to answer your question. I don't have a favorite black coffee. My sense of smell and taste buds are probably worse than most people, so I can't taste the difference between a lot of things.

  37. Yeah, on the third day I felt like I had kicked the addiction of sleep or something. I didn't even feel remotely tired. I remember I saved an armadillo from a swimming pool using a floatation device. Believe it or not I didn't hallucinate that. I did hallucinate later. At one point I sat down for the first time in like 20 hours. I felt the blood rush to my head. All of a sudden I saw contemporary me talking to a 5 year old me, giving me life advice. I knew it wasn't real, but at that point, I realized I should probably try and go to sleep or something bad might happen. I laid on the bed with t

  39. Dunkin Donuts doesn't exist in Canada. Neither does Krispy Kreme. Both tried a business expansion or two over the years into Canada, but it always quickly became quite apparent they just could not even remotely compete with Tim Horton's, and the Canadian Market always gave them a cold shoulder.

  42. I've read about cigars as an old time asthma cure. I drank black coffee primarily to keep myself at peak alertness. If I put anything in my coffee I drank it too quickly, so I kept it black. My favorite state is to be at peak alertness. I don't like being drowsy unless I want to go to sleep. I don't like being buzzed unless I'm forced to socialize when I don't want to. I don't like to eat when I'm working on projects because digesting food sometimes makes me drowsy. I'm at peak or near peak alertness about 15 minutes after waking up. Then again about 12 hours later. I'm most alert

  43. I started drinking coffee regularly when I was twelve years old (that was 1988). But, I have never indulged in any other recreational psychoactive drugs, be they legal ones like alcohol, tobacco, or (now) cannabis, or illegal ones, like cocaine and crude variants (like crack), opiates, halucinogens, amphetamines and more nasty refined variants (like crystal meth), and much more noxious and more recent synthetic crap. I don't even have a significant or notable sweet tooth.

  44. I don't know if he ever did or not. It wouldn't surprise me anyway. I do know that he drank a gallon of coffee a day, which might be about 40 cups of coffee. I used to drink 12 cups a day in undergrad and that made me probably really difficult to be around. I was like Robin Williams hyper. I never stopped talking, rarely stopped moving, and I wasn't talking gibberish. It be talking about US history, literature, Napoleon, architecture, astronomy, chess, etc. at about 200 miles per hour in a coffee shop. That was 2001-2004. About 2004 to 2005, I think I cut down to about 7 cups, which toned me d

  46. My other for #2 is that it is unhealthy and in that sense it is negative. Ultimately, I don't care if a president smokes cigars, pot, or fish, so long as they have a good platform, can enact it well and efficiently, are knowledgeable and intelligent, and can show a sincere connection and empathy with people during difficult times. As for me, I've never smokes a cigar or cigarette. I don't care if other people do. I've just never had the urge to do so.

  47. Is he deluded enough to believe the very same military he's shown himself as an incompetent Commander-in-Chief to, that he's insulted several times, and whose high level brass it has leaked have less respect for him than any other post-WW2 U.S. President and would likely prefer Biden, is going to back him up on an illegitimate and high-handed declaration of a "non-peaceful transition of power," by his fiat and decree alone?

  48. I think changes in education, publication, and academic scholarship during this same time has been a decline from what came previously based off what has been published before and after say 1988 in history, political science, literature and in other liberal arts areas. There’s a lacking of depth in the books that comes partially from experts with writing with less complete knowledge, or they are so much of a specialist that their ignorance outside of their area of expertise really wrecks the credibility of their book or argument. The best books on us history that I’ve read have come most from
