    Forums should impose a character limit equal to the amount of minutes played since last post. Boom, politik threads save empires rather than killing it.

    You're limiting people's ability to post to their relative free time outside work, you fucking ablist. Maybe I have dependents to look after; maybe I volunteer; maybe I haven't had Empires installed since 2012; who are you to judge me?

    You should work for the DWP.

    I think we can all agree that a single teacher with a glock could have saved 17 lives in Florida. I'm glad president Trump is having concrete plans to supply the necessary life protection tools to teachers at no cost.

    Donald Trump advocates death penalty for drug dealers in rambling speec

    President covers wide range of topics at Pittsburgh rally before mentioning Republican candidate Rick Saccone whose campaign he was there to endorse.

    In a campaign stop three days before a crucial special election for Congress, Donald Trump advocated the death penalty for drug dealers in the course of an hour-long rambling campaign style speech where he bashed television anchors, unveiled his re-election slogan and discussed nuclear arms negotiations with North Korea. He also mentioned the Republican candidate whom he endorsed. Speaking to a crowd of supporters in a packed airplane hangar outside of Pittsburgh, Trump gave one of his trademark speeches including a rare imitation where he feigned what it would be like to act “presidential”.

    The event was held to support Republican Rick Saccone who is neck and neck with Democrat Conor Lamb in a congressional district that Trump won by over 20 points in the 2016 election. Trump praised Saccone saying “he knows things other people don’t know” and bashed the Democratic candidate as “Lamb the Sham”. He also discussed the physical attractiveness of both candidates. Trump said of the 33-year-old Lamb “I hear he’s nice looking, I think I’m better looking” and then followed up by saying Saccone “is handsome too”.

    Funny how the article briefly mentions about Trump advocating the death penalty, but they announce it in the headline, as if the article was mainly about talks of the death penalty .
    Not saying they're liars, but they're holding a narrow spotlight to the subject

    They're like a kid in a candy shop when it comes to reporting retarded shit coming out of Trump's gob. It's a better headline than "Trump continues to basically be a fascist invalid".

    Couldn't describe it better than that.
    I better stop talking about Trump and the media and all that. I fear I'll start ranting and raving in a forum where people try to get away from that stuff.

    A bunch of kids in the U.S. are walking out of our schools to protest school shootings. Yeah, as if they were truly caring about banning weapons and weren't just using this as an excuse from class.
    Meanwhile, China is going nuts about a female reporter rolling her eyes in a press conference.

    Sometimes I wonder how this world hasn't gone nuclear yet.

    its not an excuse from class because a bunch got suspended and/or got their graduations cancelled. but i mean, believe all you read on sites that reinforce your view
    its crazy to think about but most people do want to ban guns. shh dont tell anyone though

    people are going nuts about a reporter rolling their eyes because they're sick and tired of living in an authoritarian regime, and its a way of expressing that feeling
    didnt you actually believe this like a couple months ago
