    I like downtempo electronic stuff. The most well known would be Boards of Canada. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaJn3QqiIUc

    If you have a PS4, just do the free trial of PS Vue and then cancel it after the weekend.

  6. Some opinion piece written by some nobody. Great link. ETA: The fact still remains that it all came down to a lack of technology. People had no way of knowing who was better qualified between Jim Bob the farmer from Virginia and John the banker from New York. We have this thing called technology now, so information is readily available to anyone. It has ZERO to do with crappy states being given a voice, as stated by several in this thread. California wasnt even a state until almost a century after the federalist papers were written. Someone should tell the moron who wrote your opinion piece.
  7. That is not why the founding fathers made the elector college. At the time our country was founded we had a group of people who believed in Congress electing the president and another group who believed in popular vote, as Congress picking the pres was too similar to what the brits did. Since we had no technology to quickly count votes across the entire electorate, they settled on the elector college. Thats why congressional leaders can still go against the popular vote of any given state. It has nothing to do with the piss poor useless states in middle America. Youre welcome for the history lesson. HTH.
  8. It should be based on GDP. States on the take should get less influence than states that actually fund the government.
  9. That's in no way related to this thread, but ok.
  10. Not to mention the president himself.

    Why cant you have both? Why isnt it possible to put America first, but not be so naive to the fact that we have a global economy and the stability of the world also makes America stronger? I think people confuse patriotism with nationalism.

    Yah, I'm not sure what the answer is. Obviously this has nothing to do with 5.6B, as that's a drop in the bucket, compared to what they waste on any given week. It seems to be a battle of ideologies and appealing to their bases. Trump wants to fulfill a campaign promise to the people who voted for him, and give him some ammo for 2020. Democrats believe the majority of Americans do not want a wall. The problem is both sides are using working class folk as political pawns. People barely scraping by are having their livelihood put in jeopardy by a bunch of bickering old rich people. As for standing up to Trump, it's not that I want them to pass democrat policies. It's more of a standing up for the principles of the party. I do concede that the people who have done that have been fed to the wolves though. I just don't believe Trump reflects the true ideology of the party. At the root, my problem with Trump is Trump is all about Trump. I don't think he values the opinions of his advisers, and wants to surround himself with a bunch of yes men. That's not really the way a democracy is designed to function properly. Like everyone else, I just want the best for our country and a government that works on behalf of us all.

    More of the same, is better than the far left. However, in the end, the only thing that really matters is checks and balances on the twittard in chief. If the republican congress proved anything over the last two years, it's that they lack the testicular fortitude to stand up to Trump. I personally think a split between the legislature is good regardless of who is president. Elected officials should compromise and work on behalf of all people.

    Harper and Machado, what gives?

    Hope Machado goes to the Yankees. He's a POS and it gives me yet another reason to root against that POS franchise.

    My wife really liked it. She has very bad taste in movies and TV shows though. I dont have the attention span to watch movies personally. I can do a comedy or a really compelling drama (something like Saving Private Ryan or Fight Club), but I generally fall asleep during movies. Has anyone seen that Black Mirror movie? Shes trying to get me to watch that one with her.
