Of course not. if you avoid naming anyone specifically you can keep up the illusion that its not aimed at anyone in particular.

I'm pretty tired right now, so I'll address the rest of your post later. Right now, I want to address this.

How in the fuck is it not obvious I'm addressing each and every Trump supporter including you and the other BHDNers? I wanted my posts to be broader than just addressing the BHDNers, so I didn't name your sub-group in particular because I needed to address the group your sub-group belongs in.

Y'all don't think much. it was plain as day.

Feel free to dial back the hyperbole, assumptions, and self-righteousness, if you're capable. Your tumblr blog is showing.

Before I begin, I want to say that every time I use "you" after this paragraph, I'm using it in the royal way. It's addressed to every one voting for and agreeing with Trump. It is not solely addressed at you, popehentai. You're not being singled out.



Now, let's begin.



Considering what your actions have wrought, I don't really think me dialing back is warranted. Y'all don't seem to realize that when you create an atmosphere of screaming at minorities, eventually people like the KKK and KKK sympathizers and etc pop back up and try to get office.

This happens in so many countries. Look at what's happened in history, what's happening right now in so many countries. This is giving rise to hate groups; y'all are all directly responsible for this. Own up. Man up. Adult up. A vote for Trump is a literal vote for a future of hate. He may not do anything, but hate group members and hate group sympathizers are feeling more and more comfortable with being open. Google it, you'll find more than one article about this(If y'all are super lazy, I'll do it for y'all later).

He may not do super evil shit, but he is the gateway to it. Take the wool off your eyes and look at what your actions have done; what the actions of all your fellow voters and fans of Trump have done.

You allowed for a KKK member to try a comeback. That alone is unconscionable at best. Think and repent. I'm not saying vote for Hilary. The Clintons, including her, are not exactly the nicest of fellows and will also damage the world, but at least don't vote for Trump. Look at the details of what he wants to do, and look at what so many prominent supporters want to do in the future. Just... just fucking look. Ignore his dumb ass twitter account(and Hilary's for that matter. Hilary's is the work a PR team and Trump's is a mixture of him and a PR team like Hilary's), look at his speeches, his statements.

A vote for him is a vote for a weakened America, and a path to hate.



And now the following is not aimed at anyone and is just ranting and pondering.



I have to wonder if things would have been this bad if we'd elected a white president with the exact same policies as Barack Obama. I am no fan of Obama at all(Drone strikes and expansion of domestic spying? No. Fucking. Thank. You.), but so many of his fucking proposals and actions just aren't that bad. Hell, some of them are just continuing Bush2 stuff(The aforementioned domestic spying). He also  pushed bailing out the auto industry and helped save the economy from a depression(Not that the economy is wonderful, but a Great Stagnation is better than a Great Depression II). Have people forgotten this?

Why is he so hated? Why did this give rise to the alt-right?

Just so... confused about that shit.

Read their twitter. The self-righteousness shiiiiiiiiiiines all the way through.

Disc is likely bad. Can you try with a download or somebody else's disc?

Honestly, given how cheap the game is now, you're likely better off buying the GOTY edition used or new to replace the one you got.

Sucks, I know. I've been there too.

I thought KaioShin was staff but I see he's a hero member. I was gonna say staff should allow people to have opinions like liking the Sonic series but nevermind.

He retired a while back from all positions except for IRC, much like myself.

From the sound of it the result was being pushed from pretty much the starting gate. Some of the conversations question his religion, others were saying his campaign was in shambles when it was doing just fine, they'd push for articles to praise Clinton and downplay Sanders on political sites and on MSNBC.

I mean, it wasn't like this was random people doing this. It was the top tiers of the DNC doing it. It's kind of mind boggling to me that these same people have been badmouthing Trump over this and that, while they're saying and doing all this to Sanders behind everyone's backs. Hell at this point I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually come across conversations between the DNC and the DoJ.

It also irks me like crazy how a fair share of news networks aren't saying much at all about this and it's literally because it happened on the Democrat's side of the fence. I mean, seriously, if this happened on the Republican side, everyone would be having a 24/7 field day with this shit.  :huh:

I don't like any of this shit, which is surely not a surprise. I just figured it was already going on, so I'm not freaking out about the leak happening. Even considering the use of religion in general against him is downright evil as far as I'm considered, and that shit is stuff that should have been left to the past.

What a person believes or doesn't believes religiously is their own business unless they take it to the extreme that it influences their behavior significantly in office. See quite a few state and national congressmen and women for examples of that. Otherwise? leave 'em the fuck alone. If they believe in a religion or don't I don't care, unless it's a goddamned cult like Scientology or some other cult I am unaware of(When you have around 7 billion people on a planet, there's gonna be a shit ton of cults).

Luckily, one of the masterminds behind this shit got tossed. Normally, heads of the DNC and RNC resign shortly before or after election(To make way for the new political generation, you see), but being tossed before the convention even happens is highly, highly unusual. Bernie bitched about this on TV and goddammit, he was right to.

I just don't think he could have won regardless. The numbers were against him months before he conceded, all the way back to April. He only conceded this month, for fuck's sakes.

Back to Wikileaks for a moment(Yes I'm ADHDing the fuck out of this post), they've been rather anti-semitic as of late and it's kind of amazing how they decided it was an intelligent move to release donors bank accounts, social security numbers, etc alongside of the documents.

You know, you could make the argument that donors were duped into supporting a bad political machine, but when you release their numbers, which could potentially leads to people have their shit stolen from them, well, you lose your credibility.

So, yeah, this entire thing is a cluster fuck from top to bottom, and it's all bad and nothing good has come of this aside from somebody who was going to resign anyway quitting at most eight months early.

Thanks Wikileaks! Surely what you've done will help people oh wait no it won't.

This isn't like their other big leaks. This didn't reveal people being tortured or monitored. This leak has hurt people. Without the bank accounts and SSNs being released one could make an argument they did a good thing. I'd disagree and call it useless because all it did was say what everygoddamnedbody already knew, but I could see it. I really could have seen why people would agree with what they did.

But with people's financial numbers being outed, who knows how much theft is gonna happen?

The ship is apparently closely based off of the Ralph McQuarrie Phase II design(Phase II isn't the most well known of Trek things... It was a concept created by Roddenberry between ST: The Motion Picture and the original show. It wound up not being made and a lot of stuff from Phase II was reused for ST:TMP. Sorry if this seems a bit info y'all might knowish, but Phase 2's obscure enough that there's likely a fair bit of people reading this who've never heard of it).

Not really staff anymore, but if it was more than trivial to accomplish the work in your hack, you might be able to make an appeal or something. We reconsidered and changed our minds on stuff in the past upon learning new information.

As for the DNC leaks, well... Wikileaks definitely did not pick the best examples to highlight on their twitter./

Doesn't mean there is no damning material, but we're not off to a great start here on finding anything that indicates the entire thing was fixed from top to bottom. Seems more like a result was(probably) illegally pushed faster than it would have otherwise come around.

How are y'all going through these so fast?

I'm referring to specific members of the board. I didn't use their names because I'm sure they knew they were being addressed. Saved my crippled ass some typing.

and now David Duke also wants to run for Congress again.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/ex-kkk-leader-david-duke-says-plans-run-153047572--election.html

Are you... people happy with what you've done? Are you happy that a white supremacist can even think for a second he'd be accepted by America? Are you happy with what you've lead up to?

I'm sure you are. After all, this is what you've dreamed of.

David Duke, famed white supremacist has endorsed Trump.

To be accurate, he endorsed him months ago, but he's back in the news and in 100% approval of Trump. More like re-confirming, if you will.

http://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2016-36870438

Back in 2008, he gave a tentative approval of Obama, though when one reads it, it comes across more as him being mad at McCain and a possible PR move: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=96373766

Much different than the enthusiastic approval he's giving Trump here.

A lot of stuff can be done with a cheat editor. They're surprisingly versatile. Unless the hack involves direct replacement or severe rewriting of the code, of course... I'd wager prolly... 60% of the hacks that do not need replacement or mega rewriting here could be done with a cheat editor.

What i'm saying is the statement "it could have been made with a cheat editor" is incredibly vague.

Yeesh, didn't know about the poverty/education issues there. Now I can see why things would be spiraling out of control. I've noticed things have been rapidly getting worse since the Dallas shootings as well.

And is it just me, or is BLM (or at least a chunk of them) starting to look and sound like a black panthers jr.? I mean, chucking rocks, fireworks, and molotov cocktails at cops while shouting out violent
rhetoric is kind of as opposite of what they say their message is as humanly possible.  :huh:

Or maybe it's just the fraction of assholes on side B doing violent acts on side A for what the fraction of assholes on side A were doing to side B.

...Why are you bringing up BLM when there's no evidence of a connection?

Gee, it's almost like people are trying to paint BLM as a terrorist organization when literally all they do is protest loudly.

Oh, wait, no.

That's what people are trying to do.

ISIL's taken credit, but there's no direct evidence otherwise. Could be like the case of the Orlando shooter who was basically a repressed gay man lashing out. I.E. using one thing to cover for a real motive.

So far, there's been no evidence found that he has any ties to ISIL, nor anything found that indicates he is a member including any declarations.

So, if you see any news stories saying he was an ISIL affiliate, read 'em closely. If they mention direct evidence, please link. Just be wary, headlines are often just link baity bullshit.

Honestly, from what little evidence we have, I think this guy was just a fucking asshole with a huge rage problem(He's been convicted in the last year of an assault due to his anger) and decided to hurt as many people as possible. that said, I used the phrase "from what little evidence we have" on purpose. Connections to ISIL or some other terrorist organization(Al-Qaeda still exists, after all...) could arise as more investigation happens.

The SNES emulators on the standard 3DS are so hacky that they don't really function very well. The one for the 3DS, Nintendo's official emulator, runs so much better in terms of compatibility and accuracy and etc etc.

I guess that's what happens when you over double your clock speed. Suddenly you can fucking do shit.
