Well, given that the president IS a child molester, it isn't much of a stretch.

We should end his welfare. No more secret service or airforce one for his expensive trips.

I don't think he's that philosophically nuanced. I think his thinking boils down to "if I get money or attention, it's good, if it doesn't, it's bad."

The vote on the tax hike bill that people keep inexplicably giving in to the propaganda and calling a tax cut got bumped to tomorrow. Rumor has it it's in trouble, negotiations aren't going great.

It's a revenue cut bill. We can call it that, right?

That's a good take on it.

I have no doubt he's being manipulated (poked/goaded) by the people around him - he's still being himself, but they're finding ways to capitalize on Trump being Trump.

It's also obvious that the overall strategy is to overwhelm people with so many scandals that we all get exhausted and stop caring. It's working, unfortunately.

How is he still in office?

I'm not normally big on take-civic-matters-into-your-own-hands type stuff, but I must admit this was surprisingly well done.

By like 20000 votes though. Also, something like 70% of white voters went for Moore, which confirms that the majority of white Alabamans are racist trash.

Moore already seems to be going in that direction, since he has still refused to concede defeat.

Brietbart was publishing articles the week before claiming that George Soros was sending his minions to illegally register current prisoners to vote or some such nonsense.

Apparently faith can move mountains, or at least convince you to discount the harming of children by fellow Evangelicals (unless they support abortion or speak out against killing non-white children by the military or police; those are now dealbreakers).

He probably is, but the margin of error is such that I would probably wait to concede as well

There are probably enough white, Moore-voting Alabamans who are generally civil (even friendly) with their black neighbours but who have been convinced that stopping abortions and homosexual acts (both of which are condemned by GOD) far outweighs earthly issues like treating people equally and not sexually abusing children. In other words, people who might be decent if not for organized religion.

Of course, there are also the outright nasty bigoted fucks, especially the ones in power preaching this garbage to the other people.

One of those nasty, bigoted power preacher/politican just killed himself in Kentucky after some local investigative journalists publicized the allegations that he sexually assaulted his daughter's 17 year-old best friend at a church New Year's Eve party (among other bad things he had done).

I played* a lot of Nethack back in the day (which was evolved from Hack, the original Roguelike), and certainly won it several times. Key points of a Roguelike for me are ASCII text displays and randomly generated levels.

* And coded patches for it.

Yes, I know this is 9 months too late to be topical. Nethack is fun, though and always topical.
