  1. This is usually where people start to get on the lines of identifying as Pansexual. - Tends to make things easier to clump together for those who like women and trans women. That said, the only thing about me that is remotely gay is I still open Arma every once in a while.
  2. Whenever you’re sad, just remember @DeadPool is a real person. 

  3. SMH Biden got elected and now the taxes went up
  4. Agreed - something as mountainous as a worldwide pandemic is not one mans fault. That said - I think his handling of it was poor nonetheless. The encouragement away from mask wearing, the distrust in scientist and medical professionals, and over-zealousness on banking on an early vaccine as the only prevention was NOT the way to handle it. Trump wanted to drain the “swamp” - but when the swamp contains scientists and educated professionals, it kind of defeats the point of wanting to rid of corrupt politicians and just makes it looks like we’re getting a corrupt businessman in office instead of a corrupt politician
  5. I find the most preferable option would be healthily regulated capitalist economy with efficient safety nets for Americans. Wait times for medical care in other countries are very comparable to the wait times that already exist for Americans currently, but even assuming higher wait times, are we really saying that you'd rather be worried about having to wait a little longer for an ear infection than about having to pay the fee for an ambulance because of a broken leg? Assuming unified healthcare through the government, a LOT of Americans could be saving money by paying a little more on taxes than paying a nice premium for decent health insurance .
  6. The GDP actually went up with Obama in office, after the 2008 recession under Bush, and unemployment made a return back down to under what it was before the recession as well in 2015. https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GDPC1 https://www.statista.com/statistics/193290/unemployment-rate-in-the-usa-since-1990/ Trump was doing a great job at actually maintaining these trends, already set by the Obama administration, until of course COVID hit. A LOT of leftist fully blame Trump on Covid. It would have been impossible for anyone to maintain the same trends with covid, but where Trump failed was being able to at least recover some of his economic work by doing better at handling the virus. Now unemployment is in an area where it cannot be recover for likely at least the next decade. Instead of handling COVID with better protections, we were promised a vaccine by the election that is, you guessed it, not here yet.
  7. Seriously this though guys. 1) This is literally an online video game community 2) Politics is at its base, beliefs in what would make the country better - we ultimately have the same goal, just different ideas how to get there 3) Civility and open-mindedness isn't common sense but it sir does show a lot about someone's character. I have seen plenty of liberals and leftists act just as toxic I will add too though, so don't think I am just targeting conservatives here
  8. I am gonna need you to be specific here. Do you want countries with ANY socialist policies? The US is on that list. Do you want countries that practice something considered closer to democratic socialism? Or do you want fully socialist countries? He is gonna vote with his party - and the Democratic party won't likely pass things that are very progressive as I guarantee they are gonna try to hide behind their tails in favor of a centrist policies so that then can pray they'll get elected again (assuming Biden is elected this year) in 4 years. I mean the Democratic party painted Bernie as a commie just to try to get the moderate vote and he isn't anywhere close to a commie.
  9. Lul I’m not a tankie. Im very progressive but fuck I don’t want capitalism to go anywhere - we just need to have proper regulations so that we don’t have these massive monopolies controlling the country. Yeah Biden would TECHNICALLY be the closest we’ve get to a socialist President ever. The left shifts more left and the right is shifting more right. He is still no where near a socialist. He has a very clear history of voting on more centrists policies and he is very clearly not a progressive.
  10. And that right there buddy just showed me you are reading straight out of the GOP Bible. The classic “Venezuela” case LMAO. Of course Venezuela is a shithole with socialism. A country ridden with corruption and foreign interference from the US itself is bound to be in the shitter. How about you take a look at the Nordic countries? You know, where it’s a LOT more civilized than Venezuela, having less corruption and foreign interference down to a minimum since there are an ally to the US. Let’s go one step further now and go ahead and compare how right Biden’s policies are compared to democratic socialists as well. He’s no Bernie or AOC, so comparing to a socialist country is a mute point all together.
  11. Intel still holds the cake when it comes to most gaming tasks, however AMD wins hands down in content creation and other tasks. Although it'll be very intriguing when the Ryzen 5000 series comes out as Intel is sleeping right now

      @Iceman I managed to be on the Newegg mobile app right at their big drop at 8 CST and I clicked on the EVGA Ultra XC3 and I added to cart and checked out, and then it froze and went out of stock. Went back and tried with the EVGA Gaming XC3 and boom, order went through. As of now card is charged and shipping label created.

      Lucky bastard. I tried, but they sold out in literal seconds. 

  14. American politics now days are EXTREMELY polarized. It's literally a pissing match between red and blue and few/no one in government will cross party lines for policies and same goes for the entire country during the elections.
