    I am of the opinion that making Trump pay for his transgressions, big time, will be an important step in restraining that next would-be figurehead. They all need to see that there are clear and severe consequences to becoming a demagogue and aspiring tyrant, and failing.

     

    As for Republicans being "extremely likely" to retake both houses in 2022, I believe that will be strongly affected by what happens under a Biden administration. If the country is doing relatively well in two years and a socialist dictatorial asteroid didn't fall on it :rolleyes: , the Dems may hold the line or even make some gains.

     

    I certainly would like to see Trump brought to justice for the same reasons you do.

    This is why, despite the incoming Biden administration, America has a long way to go to get out of the hole it's currently in.  Three decades of indoctrination by cable news and social media literally have 40% of Americans believing Hitler was a bad guy but he had the right idea.  The federal government is hamstrung by Q Cucks Clansmen like Hawley because a those Americans are now indoctrinated to think white supremacy is a feature, not a bug, and they vote accordingly.

     

    Trump may be (almost) gone but his power base is still there and all they need is a new figurehead to rally behind.  Hawley is one of the people applying for the job.  What will happen next is that Democrats will be so fixated on making Trump pay for his transgressions that they will fail to prevent the next figurehead from taking power.  Remember that the Republicans are extremely likely to retake both houses of Congress in 2022. 

     

    Yeah, the Democrats tend to do that "The blue wave is here"

    I laughed out loud at this, thanks.

     

    Oh, it gets better...

    Honestly, I could understand if she went after my spelling, but no that's not what bothered this matriarch from a distant wing of relations

     

    Quote

     

    Your terminology in the sentence "all AOC has done is propose additional funding to help those who have been indoctrinated into Q anon and White supremists" is revealing.

    "additional funding" -

    ""help" -

    "indoctrinated" -

    and the implication that Q anon and White supremacists are evil and to be neutralized -

    I think that we shall have to agree to disagree.

     

     

    These are the sort of folks on one of my relative's feed.

     

    THIS is the Bleep we're up against.

     

  5. Yeah. I've already got relatives putting things on their facebook  like a link to an article how a limo got set on fire in protests against  in 2016 when Trump got inaugurated. I asked what the point of the article WAS? was it to give pro trump forces THEIR turn to destroy property  ,or was it some weird attempt to find an equviincy with an attempt to over throw the government on Jan 6?

     

    Said relation did not reply, but soon put up a long quote from Alexis de Tocqueville about Tyranny in Democratic Republics taking the form of shunning. I tried not to read too much into it... but it sure sounds like she's angry that I asked a question regarding the point of the article earlier. 

    Asking folks to provide facts apparently is a form of tyranny now. But I didn't say that, because it might NOT be about that, and if she's feeling victimized and passive agressive about it, not much I can do.

     

    Then someone else responds to her post about  preferring that "benign tyranny to A. O. C.'s plan to use federal funds to psychologically reprogram conservatives ...", which, turns out to be bullshit on many levels...though I was nicer than that when I tried to explain that it was for those who needed help DE programming from Q Anon and White Supremacy. Of course, said person went into a rant about the GOVERNMENT being terrible... and it should never have the power to judge people that way without a hearing etc... I finally just asked for EVIDENCE she had that this was indeed AOC's plan other wise it was idle speculation at best. (Again I was trying to be nice). I expect I'm about to get in trouble with family for offending some grand matriarch on some cousins' side by actually asking her to support her bullshit.

     

    Some Trump supporters are SO desperate to pretend they haven't enabled the near destruction of our democracy that they are scrambling to find ANYTHING to take the moral highground or at least claim parity. Which is only going to happen if you create some MORE lies and try to sell them to yourself and others.. which is how we ended up with jackholes wearing buffalo head dresses invading Capitol hill convinced they're the good guys.

    Here comes what my be the dumbest question of all time...Is coming up with the three Options more or less mandatory?  Or is it just for embellishments to the story?  The story in my head didn’t really need a “McGuffin” but I can certainly come up with one.

      Optional Option 1:  Codes to the Containment Cells Worldwide.   (Cabin in the Woods — Movie)

      Optional Option 2: The Mother Box     (Justice League — Movie)

      Optional Option 3: The Design Schematics for the Titan Ark Ship     (Titan: AE — Movie)

     

    I thought I had mentioned it in one of our Private messages so my apologies it's just one pick a day, and that includes options unless you skipped a day ...  this started on the 11th, so last pick should be tomorrow.

  7. This is what I got so far... folks let me know if I'm missing any of your picks

    Who or what is Malthus? Some say that he's a former student who holds a grudge against Xavier and the school. Others speculate that he is a mutant who died, but whose spirit, consumed with revenge, never passed on to the next life. Still others think he is from another dimension, brought here to torment and destroy this Earth. 

     

    In any case, and for whatever reason, he has taken particular interest in Elsa and her friends.

     

    Is he the ultimate enemy...or just a pawn of someone bigger? Nobody knows...yet.

    Is this the antagonist, a looming threat, an option?

  9. Yes, we are drafting through the weekend. Sorry to those that have Real Lives, but I've found that sometimes my own life (or family) hits me with surprises that whammy out of nowhere and can break up a good draft.  So in hopes of reducing the odds, I'm shooting this through :)

     

     

    And by the way, you guys are getting some amazingly inventive and fun stuff up. I wanted to do this fancy 'judges make commentary stuff' like Log-Man and others have done so well in the past, but heck with it. I'll just say I'm impressed!
