    Not every center-right candidate has the baggage of a clinton. 

     

    Bill Clinton was considered the good moderate choice, had a lot of baggage, and coasted to two elections. Trump is a known liar but won. What you're arguing against Hillary is what people argued against Bill and Trump from the beginning. 

     

    You're admitting a radical is a better option than moderates who have won. Ask yourself why.

    Again, if you don't want to listen to what im saying, thats fine. Hillary was a liar, had a long history as a liar, and had too many scandals behind her. Even if those scandals were really nothing, they were easily used against her. And that's exactly what happened. Right dopwn to the final week before the election. 

     

    You're starting to understand why the argument for the center-right moderate falls on its face as you're saying the "radical" could have bested Trump easily over the bad normal moderate candidate because policies didn't matter.

    Bernie being a better candidate than Hillary doesn't make him a good candidate. 

     

    So Bernie, who you have touted as someone who could have actually beaten Trump, is a radical who is easier to pin down as a radical by people on right-wing sites (unlike Obama who was unable to be attacked by Fox), yet is better than Hillary, the normal candidate.

     

    Sounds legit.

    But the left is far worse for eating their own than the right is

     

    This has been proven wrong for the past 30 years.

    Also, the more radical the nominee, the easier it is for Sean Hannity to create a boogeyman that will draw out conservative voters.   

     

    I don't know why TheGreatGamble upvoted this considering he thought Bernie was a better candidate than Hillary and you're saying Bernie's radical.

    1. I never wanted Trump. I strongly disagree with him and quite frankly hate him, so this misrepresents me by making it seem like it's populist Democrats that triggered me when I feel it even more strongly towards the right wing, which has turned the GOP into a nationalist/protectionist party. It's not that I suddenly want normalcy on both sides just because Sanders showed up. I have felt this way for a while now. I don't want any populists in charge. I want leaders that listen to experts and bring people together. 

     

    2.  The Iraq War was fairly popular right before and as we invaded. These Democrats probably voted for the invasion because they thought it was the right thing to do and Iraq had WMDs,  not because they were scared. I don't think the votes were there to pass the public option regardless of what a political leader said. There were a number of senators that weren't ready even as Obama and Pelosi were.I think there is a middle ground between going all out Bernie and going to some swing state senator that killed the public option during the ACA debate. Obama is an example of a politician that I would refer to as normal, and he was for the public option then.

     

    3. The Patriot Act passed because 9/11. Americans felt insecure. Saying this was a policy that was passed because Democrats didn't move the window seems like it ignores the mood of the nation at the time. America was in a war-like state after we were attacked. Not a politician on the left or right could stop the momentum. There isn't always a way for leaders or politicians to control what policies seem appropriate at all times. Sometimes outside factors such as 9/11 have such a drastic effect on the public that no one can alter for a time until people settle down.  Pelosi and Obama did chase the public option. Pelosi got the ACA passed with a public option in the house. Obama pressed as hard as he could. It's nonsense and revisionist history to suggest that they didn't do their best to try to get it done. They eventually calculated that certain senators were a no no matter what, so they had to change gears and get as much done as possible. I agree with you about gay marriage. It was shameful how Democrats didn't push harder for it and I think a lot of people would have gotten on board sooner if they had.

     

    Anyway, I have no problem shifting the window in directions that are towards good public policy. A public option was always a good thing to fight for. A Federal jobs guarantee isn't. Rent control isn't. There are many others I could point to that populists favor that are just shitty policies.  

     

     

     

    If we're going with the "mood" of the nation to excuse bad policy, then don't be surprised if the populist mood leads to policies you dislike. 

     

    Democrats were scared. Senator Cleland voted for the Iraq War literally because he was in a tight reelection race and calls it the worst vote he ever made.

     

    Obama did not try as hard as he could for a public option. It isn't revisionist history; this was literally the debate at the time.

     

    POLITICO: W.H. backs away from public option (August 2009)

     

    Quote

    Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Sunday that the public option was “not the essential element” of the overhaul. A day earlier, Obama downplayed the public option during a Colorado town hall meeting, saying it was “just one sliver” of the debate.

     

    Business Insider: Obama Is Ready To Drop "The Public Option" (August 2009)

     

    Quote

    Facing mounting opposition to the overhaul, administration officials left open the chance for a compromise with Republicans that would include health insurance cooperatives instead of a government-run plan. [He got no Republican votes]

     

    The Hill: The Obama administration’s shifting position on the public option (September 2009)

     

    Quote

    May 6: Sebelius reaffirmed President Barack Obama's commitment to create a government-run insurance program to compete with private companies: "Competition helps to promote innovation. It helps promote best practices and also can help to lower costs.”

    ...

    Sept. 5: David Axelrod, a White House senior adviser, says he “believes the public option is a good tool.” But Axelrod adds, “It shouldn’t define the whole healthcare debate.”

     

    ABC: Obama Calls For Public Option, Which He Once Hedged Against (October 2016)

     

    Quote

    “The public option, whether we have it or we don’t have it, is not the entirety of health care reform,” Obama said in August 2009 during a town hall-style meeting in Colorado, according to The New York Times. “This is just one sliver of it, one aspect of it.”

     

    Now, the president is citing the public option as one of three essential solutions to perfecting the law, along with more states expanding Medicaid and an expansion of tax credits for middle-class Obamacare enrollees.

     

    Why is the answer to all our problems something that was downplayed, a sliver, not the definition of the health care debate, supported but not the biggest deal in 2009? All the compromises netted him no Republican support, and a non-swing state Senator in Lieberman helped to torpedo it. Why not go big, then, if you're gonna gut much out of the law just to not get any of them to vote for it? Now it's the center of Biden's platform and he's lecturing progressives about how to pay for this and how to get that done when he couldn't get the public option done with majorities in both houses of Congress.

     

    They didn't even try to change public opinion on that; they were limp about it. They didn't go all-in like Trump does or the Tea Party did to try to change people's opinions. Same with gay marriage. Or marijuana legalization (which Harris failed to fight for as attorney general but now has seen the light). Or the Iraq War.

     

    I'm sorry, but the "far left" people prove time and again they were correct the first time but get lectured by the "normal" moderates later about how they don't know what they're talking about. What was seen as "far-left" at the time is now being adopted by the leading "moderate" candidate; let's grasp how nuts that is, not the

    The bottom line for me is I'm ready to get back regular Democrats and Republicans. I'm tired of the "drain the swamp" populist nonsense that Trump supporters talk about everyday and I see the left-wing equivalent in Bernie Sanders and to a lesser extent Warren. The idealistic nonsense being peddled is not realistic regardless of the Overton window being the to-go-to justification around here.  It doesn't have to be Buttigieg, but he is the candidate closest to my views with money that isn't too old. I'll take Klobuchar. I just want a regular politician. 

     

    The problem is many would reject this premise entirely:  

     

    1. We haven't had "abnormal" Democrats in charge. There's this tendency for Republicans to be straight up crazy for decades, but once populist Democrats show up, it's now time for normalcy on both sides. 

    2. I don't think democrats were normal? What I mean is, they were running away from their own shadow starting in the 1990s, you had conservative ones like Richard Shelby in Alabama who turned Republican, you had ones without a lot of backbone of the early 2000s who voted for the Iraq War, you had Obama's press secretary his first year in office complain about the professional left, and now the supposed sane one talks vigorously about a public option when he should have been doing that when the Affordable Care Act was first being debated. It's been a lot harder to find what a Democrat is because they're scared to support their own policies, and I don't see how that's what we should strive to return to.

    3. Not shifting the Overton window is why the Patriot Act passed, the Iraq War was voted for, a more ambitious Health Care Program was not chased, and Democrats were limp on their gay marriage support for years and couldn't come up with a good argument as to why it shouldn't be legal.

    This is like when you play Minecraft and you think you dug out all the ore from the last cave, but then you find a new cave, which eventually connects to a massive cave network, which gets you lost in all the twists and turns until you get to a giant trench, eventually leading you back to the first cave that you started in when you created the world over a year ago.

     

    You have made an analogy that speaks to people in a deep way.

  9. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib to endorse Bernie Sanders for president

     

    Quote

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, along with progressive freshmen Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, are endorsing Sen. Bernie Sanders for president, several sources told CNN on Wednesday.

     

    The backing of three of the four "squad" members, with Ocasio-Cortez expected to formally announce her endorsement at a Sanders rally Saturday in New York City, is a welcome boost for the Sanders campaign, which has gone to great lengths to win over voters of color and create the kind of diverse coalition that mostly eluded it in 2016. Whether their support will sway progressive voters, who according to recent polls have been drifting toward Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, is less clear.

     

    The fourth member of the "squad," Pressley, is noticeably absent. She's also a Massachusetts representative who I'm guessing may want to endorse Elizabeth Warren.

     

    Unless she endorsed someone and I didn't notice.

    Can't say I blame them. 

     

    Nearly three years later, and this country is a complete dumpster fire, to the point that I can't decide whether it would be better to have the Dems win in 2020 and try to salvage what little can be saved, or have Trump get reelected and just get this apocalypse over with. 

     

    I legitimately feel like if Trump wins in 2020, that's it.  There is no hope for humanity.  Climate change will kill us all in a just a couple decades.

     

    Oh, I definitely blame them. Most of them aren't doing anything besides mope online. Do you really think we weren't a dumpster fire 15 years ago and all these people didn't exist then? That African-Americans weren't facing discrimination? That LGBTQ weren't facing discrimination? That black people weren't gunned down wrongfully? That sexual abusers weren't getting away with their deeds (but are actually getting taken down now)? That we weren't in a shitty war with neocon warhawks in charge of all levels of government?

     

    We have people leading protests to protect the environment nationwide, including my state of Florida which houses numerous environmental groups who get little sleep leading the fight statewide to ban fracking and protect our natural beauty, people from older generations creating climate adaptation centers to help the younger generation who would feel the effects, a host of young people who decided to get into public service and journalism after 2016, young girls like Greta Thunberg who spoke to the UN and made worldwide news, thousands of young and old people who protested the sham health care Republican bills and helped to defeat them, women and men across the country bringing down former giants such as Epstein and Bill O'Reilly and Roger Ailes who would have gotten away with everything just 20 or 30 years ago, lawyers and activists across the country who challenge every bad bill and executive order Republicans try to shove down people's throats, white cops who are actually getting put to justice because black Americans never quit fighting and other white Americans/minorities joined with them, lawyers on opposite sides of Bush v Gore who helped make LGBT equality closer to reality along with *gasp* politicians who signed laws legalizing it, stopped defending DOMA and overturning Don't Ask Don't Tell, numerous voting rights groups fighting nationwide to end gerrymandering and fight Republican restrictions to voting (including Stacey Abrams who still refuses to call the Georgia governor legitimate and finds the fight for electoral balance more important than her 2020 aspirations), young kids who got off their ass to protest gun laws that have been shitty for ages and decided they had enough of waiting, people who decided to get up and vote even in small elections to make a difference in their community...

     

    And I'm supposed to overlook how many people decided not to lay down despite having little power in 2017 and 2018? I know my ass got up for every referendum and judge reappointment, shit I always opted not to do in years past. I'm using my power as a meteorologist to talk climate change, do climate change/extreme weather stories and publicly school idiots who think they're smarter than I am on it. 

     

    A lot of white liberals are realizing the crazy shit that most minorities already knew were there and already want to give up even though the latter fought to make things better for centuries and continue to do so. Either you try to fix the problem or you're part of it. Irrational defeatism where someone's logic isn't even consistent? Fuck that shit.

    I find life to be a lot simpler by believing everything is shit until something proves that it is not shit.

     

    It's overkill. There's a line between, "Lower expectations so I won't be disappointed," to, "Hopeless pessimism and irrational contradictions," and we cross that line numerous times to where we contradict our own reading of the country depending on whom we're talking about. I have to admit that I respect Kal's viewpoint of, "Y'all are celebrating too early," but constantly being amazed at how much 2016 broke people's brains permanently. :p

    Technically, you’re right, but this is a political process, not just a legal one.  If it looks skewed or illegitimate in any way, public support for it will collapse and so will the political will to follow through with it.

    Remember we’re talking about a public with a three second long memory and a news cycle too fast for them to keep up with.  Those support numbers are very fragile.

     

    Yeah, I still remember when voters forgot that something to do with emails revolved around Hillary and she became president while many Democratic Senate candidates rode her coattails into office and universal health care became a thing and men's penises grew everywhere because they could afford Viagra through health insurance.

     

    You guys can be insufferably defeatist sometimes. :p Everything Republicans say, no matter how dumb, will be masterful at swaying public opinion. Everything Trump does is 12D chess distractions even if those supposed distractions are laws he broke. Voters' memories being bad only ever applies to good things Democrats do and bad things Republicans do, nothing matters except if a Democrat does something or something looks skewed for Democrats, in which case voters will remember it and support will collapse permanently because the memories become good. Democrats overperforming by 5000 points in 2017 meant nothing. Obama/Romney was tight. Obama's gonna get assassinated before stepping into office. Democrats are gonna fuck up the 2006 midterms. 

     

    You guys are this Simpsons episode.

    https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2019-the-witcher-3-switch-tech-analysis

     

    Quote

    In terms of visual features, we settled on two comparisons - PlayStation 4 and PC. We can look to the Sony console as the ideal that Saber and CDPR might have strived to match, while the PC game configured to 720p on low settings is closer to the reality the developers were likely to deliver.

     

    Docked:
    720p is the highest we've seen the game render at while docked, dropping to 960x540 in our tests at lowest, seen while panning past the city in Toussaint.


    Portable:
    Handheld play works the same way as docked - a dynamic pixel count that adjusts based on load. Here Switch uses 960x540 as the top number, but drops steeply where it needs to. Pick a busy street in Novigrad for example, and the lowest reading comes in at just 810x456


    NPCs are drawn at half frame rate at distance:
    their draw distance is compromised on Switch, but the rendering range on NPCs is generous enough to cram everyone in. The only snag is that the frame-rate on characters is halved towards the distance.


    Pop in issues:
    Beyond the inevitable blurriness, there are further downsides. The first is pop-in; often it's well-handled, but Switch has limits in how quickly it can draw everything in. The big trouble spot is cut-scenes; fast camera cuts overwhelm the system, and the way geometry flickers in and out can be pretty glaring. Detail-rich areas such as Novigrad can also push the streaming systems hard, resulting in pop-in that varies on repeat tests.


    Textures, filtering and sound quality also take a hit:
    The Witcher 3's drive for compression also has an impact beyond FMV quality. Textures and sound also take a hit. Texture assets and filtering are of a notably lower quality, where a form of trilinear filtering is used which adds to the generally blurry look


    Foliage density compared to PS4:
    There are few surprises in terms of console comparisons. Beyond the resolution drop, shadows, textures, and LODs are altered. Panning around the outskirts of Novigrad, foliage density is pruned back significantly. It's all reined in, creating a generally less filled out world - at a distance anyway - on Switch. It's amazing what's achieved on a smaller, less powerful system, but the trade-off to make it happen can't be overlooked.


    Docked performance:
    And while there are some notable dips, the bulk of the time in areas like Velen - at least outside towns - delivers a mostly solid 30fps. Docked play is solid, but dense areas like Novigrad will see performance drop to something closer to 20fps.


    Portable performance:
    Portable play is similar, but not quite as robust overall. Once again, we're looking at 30fps, but when taxed in stress points it'll go into the 20s

     

    Quote

    Overall, Saber and CDPR hit an impressive bar of quality here. Clearly, performance can vary, but on balance it holds 30ps more often than I expected. The Witcher 3 Complete Edition pruned back everything it can to be playable, while still somehow retaining a lot of its best visual features. Graphical points like reflections, light shafts, water physics, and even a high NPC count are incredible to see on a handheld.

     

    This is close to perfection. The only thing you more you could ask for is a cloud-based mechanism, to transfer PC save games to Switch and vice-versa. The feature worked brilliantly in Divinity: Original Sin 2 and suits a massive-scale adventure game like this one. Being able to play an uncompromised experience at home on PC, and swapping seamlessly over to Switch for portable play, would delivered the best of both worlds for the most ardent Witcher 3 players. And I really should stress that the handheld experience is very special overall. In fact, it's a stunning technical showcase for the Switch and a credit to the developers at Saber Interactive and CD Projekt RED.

     

     

    ArsTechnica -- “The Switcher” is real: Witcher 3 on Switch is a blurry, tolerable compromise

     

    Quote

    If you don't have any other consoles or a decent gaming PC, then "Switcher 3" is absolutely playable. (Plus, in my personal opinion, it's better than Switch's Skyrim as an on-the-go RPG, even with low resolutions and other visual compromises.)

     

     

    tl;dr: If you're looking for a mobile version of TW3, this is actually fantastic as it plays at a pretty stable 30fps and works. If you have any other option, it's pointless at docked because it'll look blurry, messy and antiquated.

  15. Fed up with the coverage on his favorite cable news station, President Donald Trump decided late this summer that a direct intervention was needed. So he telephoned the chief executive of Fox News, Suzanne Scott, and let loose.

     

    Quote

    In a lengthy conversation, Trump complained that Fox News was not covering him fairly, according to three people with knowledge of the call. Scott, who has led the cable network since last year, responded by urging Trump to sit for an interview with Bret Baier, the channel’s chief political anchor, the people said.

     

    Quote

    When Henry, interviewing pro-Trump commentator Mark Levin on a segment of “Fox & Friends” in September, suggested that Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian prime minister could be problematic, the president retweeted more than 20 posts from other Twitter users calling Henry names like “fake news.” Trump had sat for an interview with Henry less than two weeks earlier.

     

    Trump-friendly hosts receive periodic reminders that the president is keeping tabs. At a rally in Minnesota last week, Trump ticked off the names of his favorite Fox News stars like an announcer at an all-star game. (“Sean’s got the No. 1 show,” he said. “And Laura Ingraham’s knocking them out of the park.”) But he also had a subtle warning for Brian Kilmeade, the “Fox & Friends” co-host who recently questioned Trump’s decision to remove troops from Syria.

     

    Quote

    Anthony Scaramucci, who served briefly as Trump’s White House communications director — and has recently become a vocal critic — invoked a popular story about Lyndon Johnson viewing Walter Cronkite’s reporting as a bellwether for the public mood on Vietnam.

     

    “Fox News is Trump’s Walter Cronkite,” Scaramucci said in an email. “Once he loses the majority of them, it’s over. He knows it, which is why he is bashing and intimidating them.”

     

    Quote

    [F]riends said [Shepard Smith] was dismayed at the in-house deference given to Trump’s prime-time cheerleaders [Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity].

    Such is the scrutiny on Fox News that a theory sprang up on social media tying Smith’s departure to a meeting last week between Rupert Murdoch and the attorney general, William Barr. In fact, Smith had been considering an exit for weeks.

     

    Quote

    But Fox News executives see some tactical advantages to Trump’s jibes.

     

    For one, the rebukes offer a useful rejoinder to critics who deride Fox News as “state TV.” The network has also sought to highlight skeptical Trump coverage to advertisers who may be leery of provocative right-wing punditry.
