    There's no high horse about it. It's feeding the single-post burner accounts just trying to get a rise out of people.

    They're like a grease fire; if you throw facts and well-thought out opinions at them, they'll just burn brighter and more stupid. That's their MO: to obfuscate and distract. In order to make them go away you have to ignore them.

    It's actually pretty incredulous to believe that the public should accept a four page summary of an unknown volume of pages from the original report by a politically appointed official who wrote an 18 page memo on his own volition explaining how Trump cannot be indicted.

    This is another five alarm fire call for our country, we are witnessing the absence of checks and balances and the precipitous rise of conservative authoritarian governance.

    It's also unavoidable. The mods are right, if they introduce a post-count limit, these burners would infest the rest of the forum. And we are literally the trash heap, we just gotta deal with it. I'm curious about that mystery solution Chaud hinted at, though.

    God, please let it be a Russian mob squad driving to their homes... just this once, listen, dammit. :P

    Dunno, man, I liked Es muss nicht immer Kaviar sein. Then again, that was anything but crass.

    I also used to like children's shows from the DDR back in the days.

    This has already gone off topic enough, for my sins in taking part in such, let's not perpetuate that with talk about moderation and banned accounts.

    You'll get the report sooner or later... Freedom of Information Act or something something...

    As for the checks and balances, you are witnessing them. See, they don't always bite. For good reason, they're not meant to keep specific people out, they're merely designed to keep the constitutional order intact. What you do within that order is up to you. And the US, like it or not, have democratically elected a clown as President, within the confines of their constitution. So yeah, the election system is shite, but it worked as designed. Can't blame Trump for that.

    You'll have to solve this politically. It seems the justice department is not going to dig you out of this ditch.

    Boy someone is projecting hard.

    Britain made some of the best TV shows of all time, particularly comedies, so I don't know what you're on about there. Also why are you bringing up Hollywood and then talking about cable TV shows? Also don't you guys hate Hollywood?

    Hang on, are you even American?

    Okay, it's based on a novel, so that's a good sign. There are exceptions to this rule, of course. Heinz Rühmann did very good movies and was one of our best actors, too. But as a general rule, German TV productions these days are shite.

    I'll admit, it may be a case of being a prophet in your own land, but who knows...

    Maybe US liberals will now get they are focusing on the wrong shit, Trump has literal concentration camps for fucks sake.


    AoC summed this whole shitshow up best.
    Conservatism and its off-shoots are the most rotten idealogies to ever exist in human history.

    I'd add almost everything Graham Linehan made. And the Thick of It. And the original Office and Little Britain and Bromwell High. And a pile of others.

    And Dr Who and Red Dwarf...

    I wouldn't know... The only German TV I've seen these past years are the antics of Böhmermann and whenever Hungary is mentioned on the Heute Show. But even if the stuff was good, it would still be drowned out by American and British works.

    I doubt as many trolls would bother creating burners if they had to post 100 posts in other subs. Besides, it would spread the workload to other mods.

    Their bit about Europe, amazing how it's still relevant today and how it explains the British attitude so well.
