Relax, it does not look like the Ruskys are going to invade eastern Europe. That was the fear, NATO needs more US dollars?

You are happy to be raped by just about anyone so long as you perceive them as White.

Your 4 year running news flash is as follows; Russia IS invading Eastern Europe.

There is some good news. Belief trump has committed treason is up to 49%

Personal affiliation with the republican party is finall dipping past 25%, on its way down to 15%

Teams will follow suit

Nobody wanted to be first

Damn. We got a president taking it in every orifice from THE FUCKING RUSSIANS and youre concerned football players demand a stop to state sponsored racism...

You're a real winner.

Kid just doesn’t want you to read or think about things like this

Could cost you 4 games in Miami if you want to not stand for the anthem

Well done, Dolphins.

It should cost 4 terms in the Congress or Senate if you want to not stand for the country or its constitution

That would rid us of republicans for many years

We’re on the lookout for a scoring guard with good vision and a tight handle.

So now...defending [small or not] US allies is not popular in Trump-Washington?
Honouring Alliances is now not popular in Trump-Washington…ANZUS for example?

You are going to get no support from trump. It you get twitchy about it, you likely will induce China to act. Trump is as belly-up for China as he is for Russia (yak dung cigarettes again). He’ll do nothing to stop them. What other allies do you have that will stand up to China?

Your best hope is to be a sitting duck and hope that you fall far enough down the list of priorities of the new world powers that you are overlooked and thus avoid large scale direct interventions.

Hope that trump and the republicans are quickly and decisively obliterated. You may get your old friend back that way.

I should clarify. Kid has the mentality analogous to a Polish or Dutch Nazi.

A little sample of how the right wing is turned...
7  National / Bush Administration / Re: Bush Administration on: July 18, 2018, 04:36:15 PM
Kid’s mindset is clearly laid out in the testimony of mid level Nazis at Nuremberg. From there you can easily cut and paste what he will post next.

I am far less troubled about Russia conquering the world or influencing elections than I am about violence and terrorism within the US borders.

You have been well programmed. Your media diet has its roots in Russian money well spent.

NRA and white Nationalist messages circulated via Russian capital got us the Vegas shooter, Charleston, Charlottesville, and much more terrorism and violence besides withinthe US borders.

You don’t need to take your country back. You need to take your brain back. If you do you will find your country has been waiting here for you the entire time.

I think it was a standing order to shoot down any non Russian overflights during their commission of war crimes. They needed to keep their land grab under wraps as much as possible. Russians like republicans wilt and stink when exposed to sunlight.
10  National / Bush Administration / Re: Bush Administration on: July 18, 2018, 02:16:19 PM
Russian surface to air weapon from Russian held territory in the midst of an illegal Russian invasion. Russia denied it so paid agents and useful idiots in the West would amplify their message. Are you gettting rubles,  Kid? If not, you are a very cheap asset on the Kremlin books.

Luee’s mentality is Bin Laden’s most enduring success.
11  National / Bush Administration / Re: Bush Administration on: July 18, 2018, 03:55:30 AM
Luee, Republicans are only in power at the national level because of their ongoing shameless treason. Russia’s wish was achieved by American hands. There were Russian players like the young red head who built her career wagging the NRA and using it to break a proud American political party, but it was in the largest part an inside job.

Russia has always tried to play both sides. For the last decade, one side has played back with an endless font of greed, hypocrisy, and criminality. These are your republicans. If you don’t kick them out they will fuck you and fuck you and fuck you till there is nothing left of you but a pulverized corpse.

Russia knows that America’s greatest weakness is how it lets racial animus corrode all of its institutions and the fabric of society by allowing exclusion and discrimination to tarnish and now, finally, to overshadow all of its positive values. It made hay from Old Jim Crow for decades and now churns out racist disinformation through the NRA, amplified by fox, till it finally pollutes actual news (what the puppet calls fake) and poisons susceptible citizens’ brains.

You are scared of the things you are scared of in the way you are scared of them in large part because Russia has been tweaking your fear dials for years. This is the only reason there is still any right wing in this country ready to frack us all into hell and enslave any survivors.

Before giving Mario PF minutes realize he rolls over in the post defensively like trump does for Putin. It’s complete abject surrender. He allowed opponents to score there at a better than 70% clip. This makes him a liability against many SFs as well.

Kornet and Lance are our best bets at PF. We may need to use those Hicks call up games as well.

A Kornet Robinson Knox frontcourt should get a long look as well. On the other hand there’s no downside to running Kanter into the ground since there is only a minuscule chance he will be back after this season.

I don’t think there is any amount of minutes that will make the Noah we have now tradeable.
13  Sports / Basketball / Re: Knicks on: July 17, 2018, 09:05:30 PM
I’m being ableist, in the context of NBA competition. I have an aversion to players who suck for whatever reason. That covers Jimmer and Ron.

Mario will be interesting I can see him being fun and helpful on offense, maybe even turning the corner to consistent. The question is will he do more or less harm on the defensive end? There is no verdict yet, but Mario hasn’t given us much reason to be optimistic with his career so far. If he plays brilliantly within the offense, he’ll get a bit more slack. Either way he’s off to his next stop next summer unless we decide not to pursue bigger targets.

Glad to see no further angst 're Troy Williams

NBA is a numbers game even for "bad" teams

Angst is for Mario who won’t be as good.

Bewilderment is for why Baker is still on the team

"You make an offer to Tim at 14 mil and it is either matched or not"

Well, no.  He had to accept first.

The only reason Tim would have turned down anoffer for 14 mil per is if he were too much of a Knicks fan to see his team overpay like that. Since he took a good bit more, we know that’s not the case.
