  • U.S. Politics episode 4: A New Thread



    Here's a video that accurately describes why I personally find it is often quite useless to engage in "conversations" with those on the far right.  They almost always use disingenuous speech, ask questions irrelevant to the subject being discussed, to move the goal post and try to place their victims into a trap, where they can either "win' the argument or delude it so much the topic is so distorted it becomes unrecognizable to its original purpose. 

    I rather not have to waste my time in engaging anyone who uses these tactics.

    Also read Trump's words here carefully "Okay, what about the alt-left that came charging at us?"  Consider what Trump was referencing in that sentence. 1. Neo Nazi's and White Supremacists. 2. The "Alt-Left" (The "Alt-left" is a bullshit term and no alt-left actually exists) 

    It can be no more clear that Trump in that sentence directly called himself a White-Nationalist/Nazi.

    Not a New Yorker...but Wow. It feels weird watching NY Gov Cuomo's press conference. Actual factual coherent information. Much better than donalds daily mini rallys.

    So let me get this right... 

    A non-redeemed Jamie and Mad Queen Cersei die beneath a pile of rocks, 

    The White Walkers, and The Night King and his army of others are defeated in one night... 

    Jon becomes a Queen Slayer by killing his Queen, Lover, Aunt, who went crazy and burned down an entire city killing almost all of its people. He then reunites with Ghost and gets to live a life completely free without having to worry about Kings or Queens or the realm. 

    Bran becomes King of six kingdoms, with the implication that he may have planned for this entire scenario to happen by manipulating the time-line?

    Sansa becomes Queen in the North

    Arya becomes a care free adventurer, journeying for unknown lands beyond Westeros 

    Sam becomes Arch Maester

    Bronn becomes Master of Coin

    Davos becomes Master of Ships

    Tyrion becomes the Hand of the King/Queen for the 3rd time. 

    Brienne becomes head of the Queens Guard 

    Drogon fucks off and flies who knows where with Dany's corpse. 


    Where exactly is the bittersweet ending at? 

    Okay, King's Landing and Dany died but that seems to be it. 
    So, are fans going to go from saying that the ending was looming to to be all bitter and no sweet to now arguing that it's mostly sweet and no bitter?

    My eyes cannot possibly roll around anymore in my head without falling out of their sockets.

    Go ahead and roll them, you're free to like it but it's not really a bittersweet ending. 
    I mean, you know what "bittersweet" means, right?

    And the bittersweet ending isnt just talking about the literal last episode of the series since that was always going to focus more on what happens after. Its talking about the ending of the story, which includes the past couple of episodes as well.
    Like I said, you're free to like it. I won't critique you for it, as it's a fair opinion. But being upset because people disagree with your definition of what a bittersweet ending entails is quite patronizing to be honest. And look I'm not interested in arguing about this, it's not worth it to me. I didn't like it, you do. And that's okay.

    I always play one of those ten hour rain videos on YouTube at night to go to sleep, occasionally during the day when I’m just lying on the couch reading too. (It’s great on hot days because it tricks my brain into thinking it’s colder.) 
    Me too actually. Actually it has to be very specific, it has to be the sound of real rain, without any loops. Sometimes it can take me a long time to fall asleep, hours even and if I notice any breaks in the audio it distracts me and annoys me. So I preferably look for videos that actually show the rain, and not a static screen or CGI animation.

    I also always have the fan on full blast. Sometimes, if I can set it up correctly I listen to the sound of rain plus webcam footage w audio of a bullet train from Japan. There as this one video that I could occasionally hear citizens talking or arguing about daily life stuff as they walked near the tracks/bridge. For some reason I found that very soothing.
