I have realised that much of USA treats politics like a sport, sports like religion and also has a weird connection to rekigion but I'm not sure how to describe it.

...For some it's a "get rich" scheme and for the others it's also a team sport.

Many of the worst people on Christian News Network are being "assembled" and organized into a discussion group by Lady Checkmate, which is REALLY interesting to me because she mostly keeps to her two echo chambers on Disqus and only goes to Christian News Network to upvote Amos.

Here is the channel she is using for this purpose:
https://disqus.com/home/channel/communitycouncil/

Here's the thead where she makes the call-out:
https://disqus.com/home/discussion/channel-communitycouncil/socks_trolling_christian_news_network/

She's keeping her "Peewee the Troll" story alive and well and amazing no one is calling her on it, gullible little sheep they are.  That's right, Lady Checkmate, you are only being "trolled" by one single person with 6 million accounts.

Politics and Government / Re: Russia Banned from Winter Olympics

Of course Putin is blaming the United states for this because he could in no way no how cause an olympic doping scandal at an Olympics he was hosting. It's his typical defense when the Russian people get mad at him, to blame the United States for everything.

Just another example of him pretty much taking all the worst parts of the Soviets and continuing that legacy.

Though I don't know if he's caused any famines yet, he's at least continued the blame-shifting for his problems and the suppression of free speech for his political adversaries much in the same way.

Yeah, I'm certainly enjoying the game overall. Even the combat, if only the strategic side of it. Just a shame that anything involving timing and reflexes on my part tends to get lost in translation.

Still impressive that they managed to make as good a game as they did, given how poorly-optimized the engine was.

Anyone else played the original Witcher? Let's just say trying to make an action RPG with the same engine as Knights of the Old Republic and Dragon Age: Origins wasn't exactly the greatest of ideas.

You normalize and tacitly encourage and accept racism and/or naizism, and give credibility to the un-creditable "just joking" defense, depending which you were talking about.
