Lazarus and TRR were allies long before either were defender or democratic and it was a relationship that I always encouraged as a TRR citizen. The way in which the Imki regime was established, however - in contradiction to the Peacekeeping Agreement - left me and many others uncomfortable with whe...

Ultimately it was someone infiltrating to seize the delegacy who saved Lazarus (Kazmr)[...] Lazarus under the PRL, wasn't a free region, as folks were barred just for being raiders and let's not even start on pre-PRL figures like NES being outright banned*1. Kazmr was coming into a system that wasn...

Has Lazarus become a democracy yet? How is this not a walk-back of TSP foreign policy? Lazarus from the start was determined to take it's time, and democracy vs authoritarianism was never a debate. What was a debate was how should we structure our region, and what should we put in place to keep us ...

That isn't the argument though. The CDC can be prepared and capable, though that does not mean that it is prepared as it could be. Cutting funding to areas and spontaneously boosting them is not going to be as effective as the funding all being there in the first place, and operating for years. Wel...

Who's saying that? We are capable of handling this without the CDC, we have our own disease control organisations. Whether the US will be able to handle this without the CDC is another question entirely. Good to know that Trump has made America and the world so prepared for this: Neutering the CDC ...

There are four possible outcomes IMO: 1. Bernie wins the nomination, but fails to win over the folks that still blame him for Clinton losing in 2016, and are just afraid of anyone who isn't a died-blue centralist. If he were smart he would pick either Warren or Buttigieg to run with him, in an attem...

Defending fascism is never morally okay, just like defending any other authoritarian system that would exist to undermine human rights and deny democratic self-determination of the masses. When role-playing a fascist society, the goal should not be to celebrate or encourage that ideology in other re...

I made a mistake in that incident, and have apologised for it.

I had solicited such evidence from people on multiple occasions and never quite go...

Nevada is going to be interesting and we don't have many polls but I suspect Sanders will win there as Biden falters. Buttigieg and Klobuchar will be the most to watch: we'll see if minorities will give them a second look. There is.always time for Mr Hillter to enter the race, who is close to Hilla...

I am not surprised, though I am shocked that they don't fund electric shock treatment for LGBT, prayer circles to end natural disasters, and creation science education featuring dinosaur rides. I thought that was what the GOP promised.

In France specifically, you have Marine Le Pen, and her ilk who give Christianity special status and treat Muslims in general as a threat to the country, who has an equivalent called Geert Wilders in the Netherlands.

Actually there is a greater chance it flips if Trump loses as we are past the mid-terms, when the President's party historically takes a hit. I kinda found it hilarious when some in the GOP ignored historical trends and forecast a "red wave" during the mid-terms, and generally we can expe...

Sanders if he got elected would be a lame duck, and he would lack the super majority that Obama had when he came into office. There is no guarantee that the Democrats will hold the House either, and the Republicans have a good chance at flipping it or at least causing a sizable reduction to the Dem...

While you're on the right track, it's difficult to imagine a scenario where President Sanders would have any more meaningful anti-gun policies in place than President Obama did after eight years. That’s true. But I’d imagine most people who vote based on gun rights would prefer a candidate who appo...

Bush certainly gave me some concerns back in the day, no doubt. He wasn't nearly as odious or obnoxious as Trump is, but he had some other rather serious problems...

She lost twice, and most just want her to go away. It isn't enough that she lost in 2016, as she has to keep attacking her own party to bring in book sales.
