    Russia is about to have a civil war!

    A couple of years ago, I saw a top adviser of his give an interview talking about the flaws of the west, it was an eye-opening and refreshing take, he had great insight and knew us really well. Really spot on observations from the outside, it was the closest thing I've seen to a modern day Alexis d'Tocqueville interview. For most of it, he was sharply critical of how we'd allowed our ideals and promise as a nation/civilization to be hijacked by corrupt insiders. There was both a love/respect for the west and a disappointment in him. On most points, I couldn't help but agree with him. To answer your Q directly, his answers are not in any way the sort of things you would say if you were being controlled by George Soros. I'll try to dig it up. edit here it is. Fair warning, google considers him "the most dangerous philosopher in the world" and, since I can never remember his name, an easy way to find him by typing that in your search engine. He's a big critic of individualism and is heavily pro-Russia, two things which, I can't say I agree on at all. I only want to say how in awe I was at how accurately he's diagnosed our problems.:

    Matt Stafford asks for a trade

    Komrad Stafford is the best Lions QB of my lifetime and it's not close. The second best, after a steep drop, is Erik Kramer. My gripe is not his talent. The 2020 Lions were the wokest team in the NFL. They disgust me, They're more embarassing than Matt Millen's 0-16 squad and I refuse to watch them so long as Stafford is their QB and the NFL embraces lies about the police. Now that Bob Quinn, Matt Patricia andStafford are out the door, and if the NFL smartens up on wokeness, maybe they'll be tollerable again next year but I don't know if I'll start caring again. The only thing I know about the 2020-1 season are the unclicked thread titles I see in the Geek Club. We're a couple of weeks into the playoffs and I don't know who's left. I did figure out that WTF = the Redskins, so that solved a mystery I was having.

    Russia is about to have a civil war!

    Putin hates the corporatist globalist elites in the west, so he and I have that in common. I was more than happy to see his puppet win the war in Syria. Better Assad than ISIS. But, then I have to stay alert and can't warm to him because every now and then, he does things like this to remind everyone that he's a rat-bastard himself playing his own totalitarian games in Russia. Being the enemy of your enemy does not make him your friend.
  4. Commander in Chief is so far up the chain of command that what they do doesn't matter otehr than be in a war or not.Try having concurrent turds at a platoon sergent and at as company commander at the same time, you have to deal with these a$$holes every day.

    Do they have an expansion team in Portland or Iran or North Korea? He’d be perfect. Doorknob - Ass

    I don’t think he minds, Mike. It’s the same sentiment.

    Death Pool-Larry King

    RIP Great interviewer.
  10. I know what serving under a sh1tty chain of command I despised is like since I experienced it first hand on active duty... and got the fock out. The National Guard was so much better. I am so happy my time didn’t overlap with George W. Sh1tbag or Governor Half-Whit or the current pathetic fool we have in the White House where you just get used and discarded. Until recently, I had always intended to encourage my kids to join the National Guard to pay for college but given the current situation in the US both political and educational, I am seriously reconsidering and doubtful that I will follow through when the time comes.

    Music that makes you want to murder

    Not really. There is music that makes me want to gouge my ears out, but I have always found that turning the radio dial and never, ever going to rap clubs solves that problem 99.9% effectively. I once got a ride home from a person and there was rap music glorifiying Ferguson and put your hands in the air ... it was torture. If hell exists and I wind up there, this is what they’ll be playing on a loop.

    Tulsi Gabbard on Joe Rogan podcast

    I like and miss Joe, but attempting to sign up for spotify tests my tech skills and I hate testing my tech skills. I did eventually get into Parler, so that was a win but haven't been there since that first day. Maybe I'll give it a go the next time I turn on my VPN.

    How Long Can MSM Keep Running Our Country ?

    It's hard to see the insider corrupt corporate shills and the communists staying in alliance forever but whichever side wins out, either way, America is focked.

    Libs still protesting

    At least they're consistent. This is the pathetic dipshit's problem now. Maybe schlurping their inch and a half dongs will work again. Whatever. Who cares? It's just Seattle.
