Your opinion is not necessarily mine; Your opinion is not fact; Your opinion is not absolute. Your opinion is a perspective.
Smells like Serbian lies to me. Its a well known fact in Denmark that Serbians cannot be trusted, even if vouched for.
Nice try though.
I figured since most of the people on Moddb that I actually care about are a part of this group, this might as well be where I wish everybody a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
So Merry Christmas to everyone, and Happy Holidays to Pain. Heathen...
Oh the poor Americans, paying half the price of Europeans for gas must be such a burden to bear.
Note that the CIA and FBI AGREE that the hacks came from Russia, its simply to goals of the Russians they disagree on. No matter what, Russia interfered with an American election. Doesn't matter in favor of who, or for what reason, it deserves to be investigated. But I guess the narrative of the vindictive President Obama was too compelling a narrative to write in this article. The narrative is not at all ruined by how Obama have reacted in general to Trump becoming President-Elect. While a lot of highranking Democrats thought it to be the apocalypse, he kept a cool head and made preparations for Trumps entrance into the White House. He even made extra time to help guide Trump about his duties, routines and daily tasks as president. If he was out to get revenge, he wouldn't have done that.
Its funny that you accuse Obama of blaming everything on everyone else, yet the reverse is true for many others that love to blame Obama for everything. Blaming Obama for everything, whether justified or not have become so prevalent over the last 8 years that it became a meme. Lol
Obama was dealt a ****** hand when he became president and he did his very best to fix it. But because he couldn't magically make the debt disappear without first getting rid of the 1.4 Trillion dollar deficit Bush's administration handed him, he was handed the blame. 8 years later and opposition on almost all issues in congress this article asks why he used so many executive powers to get things through.
All I can think of is WTF? Everything I ever heard from the US during his term is "Congress refuses to work with Obama." Not the other way around. But sure that's the "Corporate and leftist biased media distorting the truth." Like most Americans I have talked to about the election and Trump gave a rats *** about the truth or facts, the moment someone is confronted with facts, they ignore me, change the subject or the most famous go to excuse "that is a leftist site, I can't trust anything it says."
I can fully understand most of peoples opinion son Hillary, but when it comes to Obama I think a lot of Americans are absolutely blind to the good things he have done. Shaving down the deficit by a Trillion Dollars among them. But oh no! He doubled the debt!!!!!" *Facedesk*. Lets not even go into the fearmongering myths that's been spouted about who owns said debt...
Apologies for the rant (don't worry, It'll be the only one I think. xD I work to much these days to argue unfortunately), Obama was not a perfect president, but he wasn't horrible either.
This comment has been posted in a private group.
The more joyful and happy you make your story, the more grim the ending becomes.
OOC: At least you seem to have the time for it. These days it seems like I have less and less time. Lol
I would expect much more from a remake. And based of what is shown in this video, I would rather play the original.
Just more unsubstantiated news that everybody eats up just because its posted on Twitter or Facebook. Wait for the facts instead of ******* sharing every piece of information that happens to align with your political views instead of applying even the smallest measure of critical thinking.
Also, you're using Breitbart as a source? I mean, if that's your political leaning, that's your business. But I find it a bit insulting that you use it in this group,as if any of us would find it the least bit credible.
Unless this is no longer the group for Democrats, Liberals and socialists? We Alt-right now? Lol
OOC: Hail Hydra!
@Pain: Nightsisters were very unique/different in their use of the dark side, which adds to the fact that yes, they taught themselves independently (Mostly). However I suspect the Eternals make use of many of the same teachings as the Sith/Dark Jedi?
@Ten: On the other hand, while dark side force cults tend to be more primitive/simplistic in their knowledge and methods. I doubt very much you can "detect" through the force if they are actually Rogue Sith or not, outside of a rough estimate of how strong their connection to the force is and what way they lean (Under normal circumstances)
"Even better, majority of the time they're Tu-142s, literally feasting on the radar data/IFF and response times stronk NATO employs. Typical bureaucratic incompetence, willing to sacrifice potentially game changing data just for a show of "look we can intercept those evil Ruskies!!1!"."
We would have intercepted them even if we weren't part of NATO, totally irrelevant to what I'm trying to say.
December 2014 springs to mind. A Russia jet almost had collision with a civilian aircraft after it took off from the airport in Copenhagen. When we, along with Sweden contacted the Russians, politely asking them to keep their transponders on in civilian airspace. They basically deflected the issue unto NATO, which is again, irrelevant to what we were asking at the time.
Don't get me wrong, I get that they have to challenge NATO, for a multitude of reasons. But they can do that without being ******** about it, or at least be ******** to the Americans instead of us.
Anyway, this is not at all the debate I'm interested in having. So I'll end it there.
Edit: Good thing I'm familiar with Moddb doing this, otherwise I might not have had a copy of my comment. Would not have written it again xD
"just rushing legislation through without even asking us what we thought could use revision in it to begin with."
Oh please, like Trump and the Republican are gonna ask the Democrats about anything now that they have the majority in both the Senate and Congress. The Republican party haven't, and won't, be anymore saints that you believe the Democrats to be.
"Probably because the policies he was initiating weren't going to work to begin with? Why would they support something doomed to fail? Take Obamacare for example."
They did work, not perfectly, but they did work. While there are certainly things to be changed and improved about it. Tell the over 20 million people, who couldn't afford insurance before, that it didn't work. And after that tell them to go **** themselves because is their own fault they can't afford the overpriced medicine that's being sold. Because all those people, especially the liberals are; "lazy people who has never worked a day in their lives. Am'rite murica?". And you guys say the liberals are the only ones to stereotype. But I'm sure you have proof, some statistics from PragerU maybe? Lol
"You have any idea how many pages were in that law and it was passed anyway without being read and understood?"
Oh sure, nobody read it. If nobody had read it, how could they disagree with it? Even before Obamacare was written, the Republicans were outraged. So if they out of spite chose not to read it, then its their own damn fault. Its a BS excuse if I ever heard one.
"maybe that's because their objections held actual merit?"
How could they object to it if they never read it!?! Omg. Sure they could with 20/20 hindsight, btu they have been "objecting" to it since before Obama was elected.
"Really? Internet isn't just absorbing, it's telling. That's the key difference you're ignoring here. I can not only respond to propaganda with internet, I can counter it anywhere in the world. Welcome to info wars."
I'm not ignoring anything. The problem with the internet is that its biased towards EVERYTHING. I don't know about in America, but in Danish schools internet sources are typically frowned upon because they are either very biased, or severely lacking in their own sources. This US election have been a good example of that if you really want to find facts that support your perspective you will. The problem with these facts are that they are most often taken out of context and out into one that serves ones own narrative.
On election day, a guy told me on skype, that he heard Hillary wanted raise the abortion limit up till birth and maybe after... That was one of his reasons for not voting for her. That's not even the worst or most popular conspiracy theory out there. And don't get me wrong, there are plenty of reasons not to vote for Clinton, but there is so much nonsense out there that too many people on both sides believe.
"Uh huh, and that's what we're looking to back away from."
"Not because of how we project power to others. I'm tired of wars over regime changes and sick of conflicts over political gravitas."
Then why do you need a bigger military if you're not gonna use it? The USA can effectively defend itself against any threat in the world with its Navy alone more or less.
The thing is, eventually a military have to justify its own cost.
"He's been critical of the Syria conflict, and likewise wants good relations with Russia. Contrary to the policies of those like Obama who kept us in Iraq and Afghanistan, put us in Syria and Libya, and then started fights with Russia resulting in Crimea."
Enough with the Russia thing, neither Obama nor Hillary actually wants war with Russia. Just because they don't want to put up with Russian BS. Then again, that's easy for the American to say, when was the last time a Russian Bomber aircraft violated US air space? Oh? Never? Well as a member of one of those little countries that Russian loves to **** on, who has to spend money on sending expensive jets up to escort them out every time, I'm firmly with Obama and the rest of the EU in terms of standing up to Russian power projection.
I said nationalism, not patriotism. And I did so on purpose because I believe the two are fundamentally different. Nationalism provides people with a reason to fight, good & bad. Patriotism is your contribution to that fight. (In regard the the context of our discussion at least)
"Because you made it sound like anyone who supports Trump totally screwed up because "they're willing to compromise and we aren't". I just explained why we couldn't compromise, cause they're not even willing to meet us at the table"
Lol. Obama have spent 8 years sending olive branches and trying to work together with the Republican party towards something they could all agree on, but in pure spite they have refused to cooperate on most issues/policies, instead trying to discredit him or make him look bad in an attempt to better their odds for the next election. But sure. They were the ones not willing to meet at the table. Even if the Democrats now aren't willing, it still makes anyone from the other side a hypocrite if that's their issue. After all, the Democrats are just taking a cue, albeit a ridiculous one, from the Republicans on this.
"Most the populace isn't going to support a war over "oh, the King of France insulted the Queen. We must respond in FORCE!""
WW One/Two didn't happen in medieval times, so that's bad example. In regards to the internet preventing future World Wars, I don't think so. The internet is to the modern age what the printing press and radio was to the 19th and 20th century. As we saw, the radio and printing press just became a tool of governments to make people continue the fight.
The internet will be used in the same way. Already is in most conflicts, a lot of ISIS success when it comes to recruiting can easily be contributed to the internet.
"Globalism isn't needed. Frankly, the reason your politics is important to us is due to the fact those same globalists trying to take over your world are trying to do so in mine. Not very happy about that. So naturally I'm gonna be a nosy Americana."
And yet, when it comes to influencing or generally just messing with other nations. I'm pretty sure most of the world agree that America is the front runner in that business. If you're so afraid of globalism, look first at the nation who's got a finger in every pie. Whether its culture, economics or military, its the USA that's everywhere. Then again, maybe I'm confusing Globalism with Imperialism. I'm pretty sure the US is guilty of at least one of those. But ah, American hypocrisy at its finest.
Edit: Btw, Globalism (In its origin) is about making sure the US kept being the economic and military top dog in the world. I thought that was what you wanted? Lol
There is plenty of healthy patriotism. Thing is, Denmark is a small country, in many ways an insignificant country and we know it. Therefor we associate patriotism with societal welfare and the greater good.
We also have a small military, but we are tremendously proud of it, and we were very proud of having been selected to fight in some of the toughest and harshest regions of Afghanistan some years back, and we did it well.
Our patriotism just doesn't register outside of Denmark. Or in Sweden, but that's more of a "Healthy Rivalry" thing xD
"Headhunter, have you ever tried compromising with someone who's done nothing but throw insults, labels, and riot when they don't get their way or the highway?
You really don't have a clue what you're talking about right now and it shows, not that I'm surprised given you don't even live here."
See... this is what I'm talking about, I ask a Trump supporter a few questions, is in any way critical and they decide I'm stupid, ignorant, or that I don't understand because I'm not American. All it took was two short comments, and you decide my opinion isn't valid, or that I'm in some way horrendously uninformed.
To flip it, you, and many Americans this election, have talked a lot about Europe and because of Bernie Sanders, Denmark (Where I live yes, not the US). Saying its destroying itself, or that the Danish government is **** for reason A, B, or C. Yet you don't know a thing about Denmark. Doesn't stop you from judging us "bigoted Euro's."
So why do you get to voice your OPINION on us, seemingly claiming to understand European politics, hoping for the EU to come crashing down, welcoming back the nationalism that sparked two world wars in Europe. Thinking you know whats best for us. How come you can say that, but because I'm not an American, and because I disagree with you. I can't understand?. I guess I "don't have clue."
Haha, this guy got spirit :P
