This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind.

Good God, could we get some actual competence in our opponents for once?

The January 6th show trial and ritual castigation just slid headlong into absurdity, with that silly bint Cassidy Hutchinson blathering about how Trump attacked his Secret Service detail and tried to take the wheel of the vehicle he was in.

Except the Secret Service is saying, 'Uh, no, that never happened and we'll testify under oath it didn't'.

There were so many logical errors in this story, it's like they sat around and cooked up the dumbest thing they could throw at the mean ol' Orange Man, and then ran with it.

Uh, no.

And once again, you step on your dick. Flattening it even more.

There is no way that he can step that high.

To be fair, that article, while admittedly seeming somewhat biased, did contain at least some links that supported his points. So I wouldn’t exactly call it that bad.

That said, still feel like Ghostmaker probably has the right of it, ultimately, in that she was not a very good witness and kinda seemed a bit absurd in some of her hearsay, even if parts have potentially been confirmed as Battlemaster’s article notes… Other parts have been directly contradicted.

Biden succeeded in keeping Trump from getting a second term. Trump hired former general Michael flynn as his nqtionalbsecurity adviser. After trumps loss in 2020, flynn,  a former general who had taken an oath to defend tbe constitution, advised trump to do the following:

On July 4, 2020, Flynn pledged an oath to the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory,[36] and as Trump sought to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in which he was defeated, Flynn suggested the president should suspend the Constitution, silence the press, and hold a new election under military authority.[37] Flynn later met with Trump and their attorney Powell in the Oval Office to discuss the president's options.


The fact that Biden got a potential dictator out of the white house alobg with people like flynn was a great victory.

Fuck the fascist right and the fascist left.

Potential dictator? Like Biden and his economy crippling executive orders? Like Biden ignoring his entire military staff and then blaming them when he pulls troops out of Afghanistan and leaving several billion dollars worth of military equipment behind for terrorists to confiscate?

I don't think you want to start invoking oaths, considering how many politicians wipe their asses with the oath they take to preserve the Constitution on a regular basis. Especially considering the behavior of certain states regarding recent SCOTUS rulings.

“William Roper: “So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!”

Sir Thomas More: “Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?”

William Roper: “Yes, I'd cut down every law in England to do that!”

Sir Thomas More: “Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down, and you're just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!”

Still wanna play with that chainsaw, Battle-buddy?

Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus.  Only a fool would trust a liar to be telling the truth, just because that part hasn't been proven false... yet.  That or someone who really wants the lies to be true...

Not yet, but maybe in 2024.
