  1. A really scary thought, if anyone dissatisfied horribly ENOUGH with the election results thinks of it - Guy Fawkes day is two days after this year's U.S. Election Day...
  2. To be fair, if the DUP can survive the retirement, and later passing away, of Ian Paisley, whom the party was practically built around, I think Labour might just pull through post-Corbyn.
  3. I have never cut someone from my life for how they voted, or intended to vote. My Aunt (my late Father's sister) and her husband (thus my Uncle, the only living relatives I have contact with on my Father's side of the family) live in Rural Alberta (though they were Snowbirding a lot for a few years before COVID closed the border) have long been staunch supporters of the Reform Party of Canada, then Canadian Alliance, then the Conservative Party of Canada, and the Alberta Alliance, then Wildrose Alliance, then United Conservative Party Provincially (chains of right-wing parties at the Federal a
  4. Elementary my intrepid tuberosumic odobenus rosmarus, it's anlogously comprehended as a robust, multifaceted, and enlightened autonomous edification and erudition.
  5. The Halloween part was a throwaway ending line. The rest of the post is far more important.

  7. It's quite likely if you only have one that is for P4E2008, there may likely, even probably, not be one for PI. There is no scenario "upgrade," or "port," algorithm, and if no one redid the scenario manually, from scratch, using only the original images and data plugged into a new editor, there would be no updated scenario. The great majority of election scenario subject elections here never get updated to later editions.
  8. This kind of reminds me of old footage from the Zimbabwean 2008 election (I can't remember if it was Presidential or Parliamentary) where Movement for Democratic Change (the biggest opposition party in Zimbabwe) leader Morgan Tsvangirai was heckled at three consecutive campaign stops by Pro-Mugabe, Pro-ZANU-PF crowds, and the Zimbabwean Police stood there and made no action, even jeering Tsvangirai his MDC campaign staff, and when a formal, written report was made later, Tsvangirai and the MDC were actually slapped with a fine for "causing a disturbance." Is this the path of U.S. election cond
  9. Those stupid icons. I only woke up recently, haven't had a coffee yet, saw the big "A," making a post like that, and thought it was @admin_270. That's quite embarassing...
  10. There was also the huge endowment Cleveland gave his illegitmate child, pretty much setting them for life. It wasn't just a vocal admission in terms of the responsibility he took.
  11. I don't really think Trump is the master strategist you portray him as. Or even like you portray him at all in any trait relative to conduct, success, and competence. It's obvious you must step from an alternate universe where Trump is just something else right before making your posts here.
  12. There are a few others I, myself, would say are worse, and of them, only one CHOSE not to run again. I'd say Trump's incompetence and ineffectiveness (compared to what he probably could have achieved, if he knew what he was he doing, and didn't alienate so many people so fast, which is, as a potential that wasn't met, a terrifying thought, but a fortuity it was not to be) puts him, in my opinion, below such Presidents as Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk, William McKinley, Richard Nixon, and George W. Bush, who pulled off and achieved high crimes and betrayals, that Trump is just too obviously obt
  13. Doesn't Trump take immense pride in preferring copious amounts of Coca-Cola to touching the "Demon Drink," (not that swilling tonnes of cola, or other "soft drinks," is really much better for you in the long run - just different health consequences)?
  14. An excellent choice of movie on the brink of a U.S. Presidential Election!
  15. What reference to Palestine and emergency powers are you making there? Or did you mistype, "Palpatine?"
  16. A very chilling dystopian short story from the '70's by a member of the Futurists (the informal NYC sci-fi literary club Isaac Asimov, among others belonged to) whose name escapes me, but the story is called, "the Syndic," (it's generally viewed as dystopian science fiction, but a number of Libertarians prize it for perceived positive values, like the works of Ayn Rand and Terry Goodkind, and some select Robert E. Heinlein works, are) that covers a disturbing view of clandestine, de facto stand-in's for non-existent law-enforcement given the nature for security and order (except for some who a
  17. This is the benefit that United Russia and ZANU-PF also have. It's called a corrupt, entrenched, and abused incumbancy. They just claim the system is not rigged, and it's completely free-and-fair, because there's two parties benefiting, like the late-19th Century Spanish "Turno Pacifico," or the early 20th Century Argentinian and Colombian, "Gentleman's Agreement," (in all three cases, the pairs of benefiting parties there were called the Partido Conservator and the Partido Liberal), but part of the real problem is also that that, at the end of the day, Democrats and Republicans agree on more
  18. A good indicator of how extremely partisan and sensationalist (and thus utterly unreliable as a source) U.S. News Media has become in totality. I get my news from the BBC, the CBC, Global News, Southam News, Reuters, and even Al-Jazeera, but not from American owned and based news media sources, anymore.
  19. That sounds like the title of an old style Country and Western song.
  20. Assuming he doesn't croak, quite possibly. Though, his fast food diet mixed with a term as U.S. President (bad for anyone's health) and his populist haranguing might possibly mean he's simply unable to due to unavoidable circumstances...
  21. I have no idea why. Then again, I guess the craptastic American electoral system forces them to choose one of these two jokers - or have their vote "wasted," by the rigged de facto institutional suppression of Third Party and Independent candidates. But enthusiasm? I can't see it, myself. [Keep it PG please - Admin]
  22. Although I'm still considering my vote (leaning to Hoover or Bush, Sr.), I'd be dubious of anyone who voted Cleveland, because he was the only one that came back - after some snide and smug comments about the bedsheets in the White House.
  23. I have, among my personal friends, a woman who is Guatemalan-Canadian, and a man (whom I haven't seen for a few years, unfortunately) whose a Salvadorian-Canadian. Though Edmonton does still have a small Latin American community, nonetheless (probably the weather ).
  24. Ah, yes, the old United Provinces of Central America, that broke apart in civil and regional wars and ceased to a single, unified nation in 1841. Everyone knows it's a "nation," like Cuba, Venezuela, and Mexico.
  25. This is probably, optimally, a Game Feedback forum, and not General forum, issue. This issue is something I haven't (yet) encountered, so the forum for tech support would likely serve you best. A heads-up there.
