    Hawaii is really expensive.

    If you go to Florida, avoid Jacksonville, have family that lives near there. While it has some decent places, it has some real crappy ones too. You can guess where they lived. Get to see people so strung out they look like Chloe from Fight Club.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    Not to derail the thread further but Florida has built a lot of its economy around accommodating retirees (see: The Villages) which is why so many head there. I think there used to be medical reasons as well (better for arthritis?) but from what I can tell the jury is out on whether or not that's actually true. As for myself I'd rather head somewhere cooler. Back to the Yukon or Nova Scotia for me.

    Reposting this:

    So apparently one of the sources for the smears the GOP are using against Hunter Biden? To borrow a phrase from @Breccia, they don't exist.

    Literally: The supposed source for a 64 page dossier on Hunter Biden does not exist, a man claiming to be named Martin Aspen; his profile image appears to have been generated by an AI, the company he claimed to work for before his current job says no one by that name ever worked there and no one with his name lives in Switzerland and the company that he claims to work for, Typhoon Investigations, doesn't appear to exist, either.

    Given the level of effort put into this particular hitjob, it smacks of a Russian disinformation campaign yet again.

    Nice.

    Just so we're clear: this is a claim the source does not exist, but then again, we haven't exactly seen the material, either. So Zaydin's claim they don't exist counters any claims they do, until we have proof one way or the other, and we're back to Fuck Trump You Got Nothing.

    If you had only been born within the last 4 years and had been fed nothing but Trump rally speeches then MAYBE you could be forgiven for thinking that Trump had "the interests of the people at heart". However, anyone who doesn't fall into that category and isn't an absolute fucking moron could see that the only interests Trump concerns himself with are his own. People have known this for decades. The guy has been scum for decades.

    His entire life has been based around being a selfish bully and gaming the system. It's not like he popped up out of nowhere 4 years ago. He has always been a stupid, arrogant, self centered bully. His entire business strategy has revolved around capitalizing on his own name, and for some goddamn reason no matter how poorly managed those businesses are (some having been outright scams) idiots continue to be duped into giving him money. At a certain level of wealth, as long as you have the right lawyers, accountants, and other connections, it becomes very difficult to stop being wealthy. Donald Trump and his staggering ineptitude are proof of that.

    It was poorly phrased. The supposed author of the fake dossier does not appear to exist at all.

    Motherfucker.

    On topic but less morbid: the Gov. of Georgia bails on his final debate to instead rally with Trump.

    And in this headline I found from two weeks from now, the Governor of Georgia has been released from the hospital following their COVID treatment.

    Yeah... it’s pretty bad... but not completely unexpected. My prediction for tomorrow and Saturday isn’t looking that unlikely is it...
