  • I'll add this to the announcement, but an example of dismissing someone for their identity would be this. Quote from Bill: “First, you very obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Second, you're Canadian, so I'm unsure why our elections are of great concern to you. Third, given the fetish that most non-Americans (and a good chunk of American liberals) have for European style socialism (and accompanying hatred of America), you very likely despise America's political culture and history,…

    Pietro - - Serious Discussion

    Post

    Recently, especially since the election of Donald Trump the intensity of arguments in SD has been dialed up to a point that many members are uncomfortable with. There has been namecalling, as well as personal attacks that seek to dismiss the arguments of members based on personal identity. This has been to some extent tolerated (when it really shouldn't have and that was a failing on my part.) For all such recent attacks until this point I will not be issuing infractions because doing so at this…

  • Fair enough, like I get that fear and I share it, but there are some commentators on the left I've seen that basically arguing that the whole Russian story is nonsense and just the media and the Dems trying to absolve Clinton of her responsibility (namely Michael Tracey and Jimmy Dore of TYT, but I know there are others on smaller outlets I haven't watched who argue the same thing.) I get progressives arguing that we can't go down the Clinton path again, I just disagree with some of them putting…

  • Quote from Moechacho: “But Donald didn't go to the Russian informers, it was his son and campaign chief, is it still illegal in that sense since they aren't the ones running for the presidency? I am not familiar with the specifications of the law. If anything, if Donald and his sons are in the clear for legal trouble, then this isn't stupid at all, this is pure genius. Using the law and its loopholes to his advantage is something Trump claims to have done and will do in the previous years. ” vox…

  • Donald Trump Jr got a mob lawyer after admitting that he met with a Russian lawyer connected to the Kremlin for the purpose of obtaining damaging information about Hillary Clinton during the election (with Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner), information that according to him the Russian didn't provide. But in any case the act of meeting with a foreign official for that purpose is illegal whether you obtain that information or not. Now we know why it seems Donald Trump is embarrassed by his sons an…

  • Finally (yeah, I know triple post), I'm glad that the Democrats aren't focusing as much on this anymore, not because I don't think this is an important subject, but because its been dealt with. They successfully pressured the government into allowing Mueller to do an independent investigation, their job thus far is done. Whether or not anything is turned up in this investigation, there is nothing the Democrats can do before the results of the investigation are revealed (if there is evidence of c…

  • Quote from LeoBravo: “I was under the impression that anti-globalist protectionism was the mainstay of the right? Why is this being blamed on the left? Unless it's right when Americans protest foreign multinationals killing small business, and left when foreign citizens protest American multinationals killing small business? Of course I'd say it's less about politics and more about "violent dickheads with nothing better to do". ” Its not really an issue that belongs to the right, its actually tr…

  • Quote from Bill: “For example, I've pointed out that Trump had a stronger response (striking Syria) against Russia than Obama ever did, which everyone here has completely ignored. Everyone has also ignored Obama's dovish posture in general toward Russia, but has not given Trump the same benefit of the doubt. Why was it OK for Obama to be diplomatic, but Trump has to be tough? If this was such a serious matter, why didn't Obama do anything, and why did he say no serious person believes the electi…

  • No name calling in SD or anywhere on this site. Post with respect.

  • Quote from Bill: “How does the left, generally speaking, not own the behavior of those protesters? Those are anti-capitalists who hate the 1%. It's not a few bad apples. There were hundreds of people involved in those riots, damaging cars and setting them ablaze, breaking in windows, shooting rockets etc. there's no way they could avoid reporting on this. Another reason the must report is because they would face further erosion of credibility otherwise. If they don't report (and even if they do)…

  • Quote from Bill: “Peaceful G20 anti-capitalist/anti-fascist protests in the paradise that is Hamburg Germany: youtube.com/watch?v=E_u0yYuvzT4 How is this allowed to happen? Where are the police? ” Interesting, right wingers complain about the left wing media. Yet the corporate media consistently reinforces right wing talking points about the "dangerous protesters", interesting that Time didn't post a video of the peaceful protests in Hamburg, only the violence perpetrated by the black block. Nix…

  • Peter Julian dropped out of the NDP race :(. Now I don't know who to support because I really don't like some candidates and am indifferent to some of the others.

  • Quote from HylianRoyal: “Quote from Pietro: “I scoured the internet trying to find the Democrats' plan on healthcare and I finally found it. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patient_…n_and_Affordable_Care_Act There is also a Democrat plan to replace Obamacare co-sponsored by many Democrats in the House, over a hundred representatives. congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/676 Why doesn't the media point this out, they do have a plan, there it is.

  • A couple of days ago I found a copy of Mega Man X on SNES at a thrift shop for 5.99$ and today I found a bunch of Atari games very cheap. I'm on a bit of a run when it comes to thrift shop finds.

  • Quote from ich Will: “Which reminds me, what games would you guys choose for the SNES Mini library? I know I'm missing Killer Instinct, Darius Twin, R-Type, and Donkey Kong Country 3. ” Your SNES 30 I made a thread on this :P. My list turned out pretty accurate, other than the assumption that we'd be getting 30 games. KI wouldn't be included because its from Rare, but DKC 2 and 3 are glaring omissions, I'd also like R-Type and R-Type 3.

  • Yeah I don't think an N64 Classic would have that same appeal. SNES games still look great, most N64 games and early 3D console games look like shit. Also Nintendo doesn't have the rights to most of the N64's greatest games. No Banjo Kazooie (Tooie), no Perfect Dark, no Goldeneye, no Conker. They could probably get Microsoft (through Rare which they own) to let them re-release DK64 (ala the Donkey Kong Country games), but apart from that there is precious little when it comes to N64 games that s…

  • Hotdogs (Quebec style steamed hotdog and bun): coleslaw and cabbage, nothing else. Hamburgers: lettuce, tomato, cheese, onions, bacon. Not a big fan of sauce condiments these days, but I'm fine with chipotle or some kind of garlic based sauce for hamburgers. No sauce on hotdogs, too messy.

  • cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswi…origin-stickers-1.4185690 All of a sudden Conservatives are for burdensome regulation on private business and against letting the free market decide which oil Canadians use.

  • Let me preface this by saying that I believe Canada should produce as many goods as possible for the purpose of being used by our own people. cbc.ca/news/politics/canada150…ment-government-1.4185265 I read this CBC article today about how 70% of the swag that was purchased to be given away for Canada's 150th anniversary were made in foreign countries. For some reason this has gotten people up in arms and I don't understand why we have these flashpoints of protectionism every so often followed by…

  • Searching through a thriftshop for good video games, books and DVDs. Its rare to find good stuff, but when you finally find a well priced console or video game (or a rare instance when someone dumps their whole collection for a console and you just buy out the whole lot) or a Criterion DVD for 2$. It feels so good, I love the thrill of the thriftshop hunt.

  • Quote from Bill: “The increasing trend of the left adopting the language of the right and joining in their ridicule of hurt feelings and safe spaces. This is called winning the debate and taking back the culture. As for the specific content, it's weak sauce. Donald Trump has small hands? Call the press, haven't heard that one before. ” "The left" isn't a monolithic group, its like half of the country, I for one have been mocking right wing politicians complaining about safe spaces on the one han…

  • Today, Donald Trump truly became president of the United States. So beautiful, will go down in history between the Gettysburg Address and "Ask not what your country can do for you". I find it more funny and pathetic than outrageous. The fact that this man is so thin skinned that he throws tantrums on twitter because the Morning Joe hosts don't like him anymore like they did during the election... lol. Maybe his staff should warm up a bottle of milk for him, just make sure the bottle is made for …

  • Quote from Topaz Mutiny: “Well, maybe that means there's hope for my family yet. Last night I caught my older brother explaining to my parents how mad he was that preorders in the US are already gone. ” XD, yeah don't worry according to what I'm hearing from old ebgames friends today there will be no preorder to miss in North America. I hope this becomes policy for all of Nintendo's collectable stuff. Yeah, I know scalpers could still get a few of their willing family members to camp out, but I'…

  • Quote from john_marston: “Quote from Pietro: “There's a chance that there just might not be pre-orders. I've been told by people who work at various retailers that they were specifically told not to take preorders on the item unless they are told. NOA might've taken all the criticism of last time as, "well the scalpers are getting all the online pre-orders so now we'll only let people buy at launch, mostly in store." Canadian retailers don't even have the drop page yet and this is also the case …

    Okay, I'll let this thread continue. But please answer Luc's questions and discuss the topic at hand rather than if he's serious in posting this thread. If you want to ask him that send him a private message.

  • Quote from john_marston: “I'm a needy European ZUer! Can't believe it's sold out everywhere already (well, I can, but I'm annoyed nonetheless) ” There will be restocks before launch, don't worry yet. Though I am pissed that I'm looking for insider info and can't find anything. I do know that its likely EB Games in Canada won't be taking pre-orders.

  • Will, if you end up with multiple SNES Minis and I don't get one from a Canadian retailer I'd gladly pay full price + shipping man. Don't even worry, you'll be able to sell any extras you get very easily and I respect the fact that you wouldn't scalp them, didn't sell my NES Classic even though I got an offer for 350$.

  • twitter.com/NintendHOME/status/880076204245745665 Apparently there will be 160,000 SNES classic editions sold in France, compared to 84,000 for the NES Classic. If this twitter account is accurate that is.

  • Preorders still aren't up in Canada or the US...

  • theintercept.com/2017/06/23/de…desta-comcast-prudential/ I saw this on the Intercept a few days ago and its a very interesting and important read, I suggest everyone read it to really know what goes on in the US politically. It seems that many of the democratic insider lobbyists have switched over to trying to push Trump's agenda. Whether it be the telecom industry where democratic lobbyists such as (from article) Ingrid Duran, Vincent Roberti, Steve Elmendorf, Al Mottur, and Arshi Siddiqui, who…

  • Quote from Bill: “Not surprising that the play would be to go for character assassination rather than address what was uncovered (which, edited or not, is highly damning and speaks for itself). ” Pointing out that someone was proven in the past to have heavily edited videos and outright lied to attack his political opponents, to the point where he was forced to settle lawsuits against people he had harmed with his lies isn't character assassination. Its his record. The general public and the med…

  • en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ACORN_20…rcover_videos_controversy James O'Keefe is a hack and proven liar who heavily edits tapes to attacks the political enemies of his conservative patrons including the Donald Trump Foundation. He's the one who brought down ACORN with his videos despite the fact that not one of the many government agencies investigating his claims with the full unedited tapes found any wrong doing by ACORN after they were already shut down and that James O'Keefe paid a settlement to a …

  • game.co.uk/en/super-nintendo-e…m-classic-edition-2024185 For the UK Zuers go for it, still in stock. And its been up for awhile, looks like they really increased availability. The NES Classic would've been long sold out by now. Hopefully this is the case for NA also.

  • kotaku.com/nintendo-announces-snes-classic-1796418700 So this is a thing. I managed to get the NES, so I hope I can get this.
