• Due to datamining of the demo files, substantial leaks are now everywhere. As a reminder, some of these are in-development screenshots and may point to events that aren't going to be in the final game. Some of them are clearly going to be in the game.

Freybs saw that trampoline gif. She keeps laughing hysterically at the name 'Donald Trump'
She asked me 'Who is Donald Trump?'
I said 'He's going to be the president of the United States...'
'what kind of guy is he?'
'well.....'
'Is he a dog?'

I kind of wish it was a dog.

Interesting recording of a Mark Blyth lecture that tries to read the tea leaves about how we got here and what we're in for, from a global perspective.
 
So, Trump has had friendly conversations with both Pakistan, and Taiwan, pissing off India and China respectively. Countries are not just big companies Trump, you can't just say nice things to them and everyone will get along on the surface!

OTOH, he / the US will probably get away with it; both countries export a lot of goods and services to the US and/or for US companies (Apple, IBM, HP, probably Microsoft, probably a fuckton of other smaller companies). So there's an economic reason to not do anything rash.

Depends what you mean by "getting away with it". Mainland China has already complained.

My brother, Monterosa, lives in Taiwan, so I've learnt about the relationship between Taiwan and the mainland. On paper, both sides claim sovereignty over the other, but Taiwan's claim is basically realpolitik: relinquishing their claim would mean either declaring independence, which could lead to an invasion that they'd have no hope of resisting, or accepting the mainland's sovereignty over them, which would involve giving up a lot of the rights and freedoms their people currently enjoy. I'm sure they'd become a sovereign nation in a heartbeat if Beijing allowed it. So they're in a pretty shitty situation, which I'd like to see change.

I'm not sure Donald Trump is the person to bring about that change, however, and I'm even less sure that circumventing Beijing is the way to do it. Then again, it was only a phone call, hardly a recognition of sovereignty. :P

Besides he's not actually president yet so err... Actually he probably shouldn't be doing anything involving foreign affairs and shit just yet :monster:.
 
Global Trumpism jumps its latest hurdle, that being a successful "No" vote in an Italian referendum. Granted, it is also a chance for progressives in that country too.

However, former Greens member won PRESIDENCY in Austria :P.

lmao. This crackerjack, leftist dump made me laugh my head off. Thanks for the read, folks ;)

Guess it must really hurt to have so much fail. Trump for 4 years and, when he fixes the broken voting system that allows illegals to vote, another 4 years to follow.

Sucks to be a Marxist freak like on here. :awesome:
