So look, all I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have, because we won the state. So, so tell me, Brad, what are we going to do?

Cheers, America!

JJ, you've been here long enough to know the rules. Is it really so much to ask that you don't bypass the language filters?

I was trying to emulate locker room talk with my answer and it wouldn't have been complete without at least trying to bring in some slightly misogynistic terminology.
Just as an explanation, not as an excuse. You know my stance on language filtering (which has been another American obsession) and it's no wonder George Carlin became famous first and foremost for undermining and subverting that (you know the famous sketch  of "there are only 7 words the others all go back to).

To answer your question, in the overwhelming majority of cases I don't feel the need to bypass language filters or use "forbidden" words just for the heck of it, like the Americans seem to do all the time, but a fitting word at the right place is a fitting word at the right place, forbidden or not, profanity filter or not.

So in principle it's not too much to ask, but in some rare cases there may be exceptions of the rule.

Trump was rumored to flee the country before the Biden inauguration. To golf in Scotland, but Scotland is having none of it. The First Minister commented on the rumors in a press briefing, basically that he is not welcome. She hoped Trump’s only immediate travel plans were to “exit the White House”. Oh Snap xD

Ross Greer MSP :“The only circumstance in which I'd want to see Trump in Scotland is if he's here to hand over an unvarnished set of accounts and financial disclosures for his Scottish businesses, given the pretty credible evidence submitted to the U.S. Congress linking their purchase to potential money laundering. Otherwise, he can stay stateside to sulk about his crushing defeat.” Oh Burn xD

Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP : “Scotland welcomes in comers of all backgrounds and beliefs, but that stops short of providing safe harbor for criminals. We’ve got enough on our plate right now than having to deal with the arrival of a delinquent former president.”

I love Scotland

The capitol building is on lockdown.

https://www.cbsnews.com/live-updates/electoral-college-vote-certification-2020-01-06/

Protesters reached the interior of the Capitol building, prompting the evacuation of senators and causing House members to take cover under their seats in the House chamber. Lawmakers were told to use gas masks to protect themselves from tear gas.

Congressman Gerry Connolly of Virginia tweeted that tear gas had been used in the Capitol Rotunda.

I can't say I'm really surprised by this.  It's a sad commentary about how fractured the United States has become.  This was not unforeseeable, especially with how profitable strife is these days.

It is also completely counterproductive to the interests of the protestors, but if they understood that they wouldn't be protesting their ridiculous cause in the first place and behaving the ridiculous way that they are. It's like "the emperor has no clothes, and neither do any of his followers".

It actually is tragic. This should not happen in a democracy. There are people though, even on these boards, who absolutely loathe democracy. Freedom of choice. And will do everything in their power to overthrow it. This is their last stand for this President, but I fear it will continue even after he is gone. The floodgates have been opened.

It doesn't help that the ex-President refuses to concede. He said today that he never will. He is such a sore loser my god.

Also it doesn't help that some right wing medias instigate the same conspiracies constantly. Insanity...

It's not just the right media, Minion.  Both sides are more than happy to peddle their nonsense in hopes of raking in that sweet ad revenue.  Again, division is just too profitable.  

This powder keg has been lit for awhile and I don't see how things are going to get better any time soon.

Trump isn't the main threat to US democracy. It's the population.

Always has been.

@OD:

The president needs to go to jail. That's not an extreme statement. It's just what needs to happen. Yes, that will create toxic ripples and possibly more outbursts from his minions like what happened today at the capitol, but the alternative is worse.

It is pretty beneficial for the wife who has cheated on her husband, to say that "both both did wrong", when the husband came late for dinner. But in reality there is no equivalence. When it comes to medias, both can peddle in nonsense indeed yes, but right wing media has driven off the cliff and sunken into the Mariana Trench. OAN or NewsMax, just please, they are garbage.

At least two suspected pipe bombs have been rendered safe by law enforcement — one at a building that houses Republican National Committee offices and one in the US Capitol complex.

Shocking!

Edit: This is happening at congress. WHAT COUNTRY IS THIS?

this pro-trump discord I was banned from for trolling some "germanic" neopagan loser yeeter into the bog, is now in full revolt against the soon to be former president for that "cease this crap" video he made.

just leaving this here for the rest of you to laugh at.
The server name is God Emperor Trump Epic Gamers, it's real, will probably show on a public server list.

I am having an amazing time, finally the dumpster fire I was promised. cheers.

FYI, I'm not on "their" side. when the big guns roll in and the protesters are getting blasted, I will laugh even harder.

Reckon Fred's somewhere in there?

It's quite the perilous situation, a single drop of blood and the whole thing might explode. Trump really shouldn't have riled up his supporters this much, it's turning very ugly.

I think some of these photos of the capitol building getting stormed are going to become immortalized.

USA's new Speaker. I have to say, I fancy him much more than old Nancy. He oozes vigour and strength and can actually be trusted to fight for your rights on the House floor, unlike those dodgy politicians and their ridiculous headgear.

Or is this the Senate? I can never tell the difference.
