What a ****ing joke.


The only thing I am tired of is you chiming in with your sanctimonious bull **** every few months.






That is all.

When are we going to stop trying to protect the middle man and just do what needs to be done?

No. There's a couple in here that agree with you. You're in good company.

Saw that the other day. Reddit predicted someone would take the clip of the President trying to put the Marine's cover back on, play it in reverse and peddle it as Trump making a **** move.

In reality, it was the classiest thing I've seen him do as President thus far.

I went searching for it. Pretty hack job on the lower third editing for the meme, but I'm sure there's enough idiots out there that think CNN actually did that.

So Trump and Fox News are just feeding each other back and forth to come up with the latest story that Comey gave out classified info in memos to the press.

I'm guessing this is to try to avoid talking about Trump Jr.

lmfao

Pardon me for a moment, but what is going on with the internet/memes/photoshop/media right now reminds me so much of the first year of World of Warcraft.

What happened was: a vast, open-world RPG, was opened up to millions of people world wide. And in the beginning, there was no supplemental information to go along with it. These days, there are in-game mods that tell you exactly where to go and when, there are huge online databases dedicated to telling you the stats of all the items, creatures, bosses, boss encounters, theorycrafting of certain character builds. Basically, everything about the world is known now, and the playing field for players has been leveled out over time. The game is on rails, and even joe-blow casual can be a god-tier WoW player.

But in the beginning, there was none of that. It was the wild west. There were no "right ways" to build your character, there were no "optimal specs", you just did what worked. If you were good, you were MARKEDLY better than other players. I mean the learning curve was REAL and it was amazing. You'd go into PvP (player vs player) games (or duels) against players with much better gear, but if you were good, and you knew your ****, you could overcome their gear advantage and still win.

Right now, we're in that wild wild west **** on the internet with the memes and the photoshops, etc. The people that have the discerning eye, and the experience on the internet can, for instance, spot a "reversed video" from a mile away. Or they can examine the pixels on a photoshop and tell instantly that its fake. And they're miles ahead of Sally Facebook in this regard and they're playing her for a fool because of how little experience they have with this internet bullshit.

IDK, just funny to me. Exciting too, in a perverse way. It's not sustainable, and we'll look back on this time as a hilarious point in history when we essentially meme'd a shitposter into the US presidency because of this "internet learning curve".

Cool story, bro.


I'm fairly certain everyone here agrees that Trump is doing a piss poor job in the Office.

Or is this the smoking gun for the next eight hours?

I don't think it's because he's done badly in office. I think it's because of his dumbass Twitter rants and the never ending negativity from the media.

I'm going to go with the fact that he's done little of substance while in the office.

He said himself the morning after the election that he had to deliver. So far, he hasn't.

He has the house, senate, and court in his corner and he's still delivered virtually nothing.

I agree that he's delivered nothing. And I'm far from a "Trumpeter".... however I do wonder how much, if any, all of the stories are affecting his ability to implement his plans.
