Iím eager to see whatís next, but itís maybe a 2/10 so far.

Oh yeah? Well you know what else was 2/10? Double Hitler crowdsurfing ten other Hitlers, you dodeca-Nazi.

Am I doing Godwin's Law right?

So a train is heading down some tracks, uninterrupted it will kill 10 clones of hitler, but you have the option to change the tracks, where it will instead kill the ACTUAL hitler. What do?

No. Let me demonstrate, THIS is how you Godwin:

You are all nazis, ALL of you, with your double speaking and insane avoidance of objective realities in your philosophically founded notions about equality and fairness.  Tell me, outside of human circlejerking on the subject, where do you find such equality in nature? If it was as self evident and important as you state, it should have been hit upon independently by many social species, but it hasn't been, has it? What do you see instead? Speciation with role behavior optimization, and flagrant gender dimorphism. 

Any physical trait adaptation is likely to have derived from a small but important survival benefit within a specific ecology or geographical region. This means that white people ARE superior to other races, within the environment that selected for them.  So, in some contexts, Hitler really *WAS* right!  But you cant accept such an answer, because it does not compute for you. Instead you have to violently reprogram everyone who disagrees, and label them race haters and shit. 

Likewise, it is entirely possible for a demographic of humans to become adapted to performing criminal behavior, if criminal behavior is unavoidable and is the only means of improving their living conditions, which many of you assert is true for certain racial demographics within the united states.  Why then is it wrong to point out that certain racial demographics commit disproportionate amounts of criminal activities? Hmm? 

(continue long and horrible rant)


PLEASE bear in mind that none of this drek is actually my internal view.  It is just the output of my Godwin simulator. :P

I would like to return yo the Mueller investigation conclusion. How long before we can expect things to start happening, if they do start happening? Are there any formal steps that needs yo go through now or could Mueller, if it seems it won't be made official in a satisfying way, be subpoenad like tomorrow already?

Our older politicians are so terrified of upsetting the applecart, even when said apple cart is covered in festering maggots and mold, that even when presented with concrete evidence of that festering decay in the very room with them, they are hesitant to make bold action to address it.

As such, I expect that even with outright incontrovertable evidence piled up on Trump, our legislators will waffle on whether or not to pursue charges or not.

It'd probably take more than a day -- stuff would have to be voted on or subpoenas issued or whatever, which would take a day or two at minimum -- but pretty certainly less than a month. To get started, anyway. Finishing whatever comes of it would take longer, and doesn't touch all the stuff that's already in progress. Still, you'll probably have a good idea of what's going to go down and a rough timeframe by the end of, say, April.

E: Actually, if you can stand a Twitter thread pile, check this out. Summarizes what's actually going on with the investigation (and related ones, which are myriad) better than I can.

I hate it, but can stand it in the pursuit of knowledge. Thanks for the link! It was very interesting.

Eye opening.

Tl;dr, Mueller "not bringing any more indictments" does not mean he's done. Information garnered is being sent to other agencies to determine if anything else can be drawn from it. What material Mueller's team does have remaining doesn't have anything eye-catching in and of itself, thus they can only send it to other investigators to cross-reference.

Shorter tl;dr MSM have went and lost their tiny little minds. Shocking.

AG Barr said that he could release the 'principal conclusions' sometime this weekend, so, it's moving relatively quickly.

It is difficult for me, as a Scotsman, to take AG Barr seriously.

It also makes me really crave Irn-Bru.

Just get shitfaced and try to slur your way through those sentences, it makes perfect sense then.

A. G. BARR, aka Barr's, is the company that makes Irn Bru, a popular soft drink in Scotland. It is therefore humorous that the AG is called Barr.

The joke is now dead.

My work is done.

Sadly not. I'm Scottish as well. I've supped on the nectar of the BRU since I was but a bairn, I've quaffed BARR lemonade many times. The sugary wrath of liquid confectionary has seared my soul and probably my arteries.

In other words I just stumbled into the thread after playing games for a few hours and saw the post, knew what BARR was and decided to spoil the fun.  :P
