No, but they are making it safe for them. Jeeze GVH, what's wrong with making sure people are safe and in an AirBnB that is adequate to stay in? The people pushing for this aren't doing it because they feel sorry for the Airbnb guests, it's hoteliers mainly. I will take the plight of hoteliers over...

While I also meme as an Imperial the fact is that loyalty will not protect you in the Galactic Empire. ESPECIALLY after Operation Cinder. Also if you fuck up you have a not insignificant chance of being killed for said failure. Basically no one should want to live under the Galactic Empire. “I real...

“I really would like to live under the Galactic Empire”
“But the genocide and the slavery”
“No no, I would be the one doing the oppressing”
“This calms me and alleviates any further questions”

As time passes I have a dimmer and dimmer view of President Obama. But it's not for the usual "didn't do enough" reason, it's for the war crime he committed. The CIA under Obama infiltrated the compound where they knew OBL was living. They did this with a CIA agent impersonating a nurse g...

That's a decent idea, I'll get on that tomorrow if I get the chance!

I’d advise against it. Nothing kills an OOC like a discord, since only a small amount of people can be active, and they will decide everything while people in difficult time zones will have nothing.

So if the Senate decided they wouldnt convict even if Trump assaulted Secret Service and threatened staff with a gun so be it? Your effectively declaring the President above the law. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. What if Trump loses in November? He'll still be President for a couple of months...

That’s what a legal opinion is, in essence. And I happen to agree with the opinion. Impeachment would not make sense without immunity, and the Federalist Papers imply as much. I think it’s stupid, but that does not mean that’s not the system in the constitution. It just makes the constitution fault...

He shall be removed upon impeachment and conviction, but he hasn't been convicted. My point is that the Congress isn't required to impeach under any circumstances. Suppose he commits treason, no doubt about it, I'd rather he be tried in a court and imprisoned for 20 to 50 years. Whether or not he s...

But sitting Presidents can't be indicted. So if Trump went crazy on Secret Service agents or staff and started attacking and threatening them you couldn't indict him as far as I understand it. An opinion issued to that effect by the DoJ. Not a ruling of any court. An opinion based on what the Court...

Yes. I would qualify that. Any crime committed in office (using powers of the office, using confidential knowledge of office etc) but not "any crime". If the President beats his wife, prosecution would be appropriate. Not impeachment. No, don’t qualify. Any crime. If the president beats h...

TLJ left our heroes at a low point, all rebels fitting inside the Milennium Falcon, the First Order in a position of power with an unstable leader. You can take that anywhere. 3.
