re: Help me pick a premier league team - Mephistopheles
basically be original and don't choose Arsenal, Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool or Tottenham. I think that leaves the only other Premier League ever-present team as Everton, so maybe them? Unfortunately Goodison Park is a shithole with about 4,000 'restricted views' I.E. you're stuck behi...

re: England vs Belgium For the Group - FOX 2ET/1CT - Mephistopheles
I am. Southgate may have that cricket ground demeanor of slightly standoffish slightly reserved Englishness to him, but I assure you that beneath it all is the beating heart of a man so desperate to win a major trophy with England that he would literally sacrifice his family and cut off his own geni...

re: England vs Belgium For the Group - FOX 2ET/1CT - Mephistopheles
Everyone was on Panama as the Cinderella story of the tournament. I was too. I didn't get to watch most of the England match, so I heard the comments afterwards. I heard Jesse Lingard straight up say they played dirty. I thought, "wow, that's a bit harsh, a bit unguarded". frick me he wasn't w...

re: The Official Singapore Summit Thread | Trump meets Kim | 8PM CDT - Mephistopheles
And one other thing, perhaps a pro "Trump-Doctrine of diplomacy" post, although not exactly totally accepting of what he's doing... In the past leaders have used "enemies" as propaganda tools to push their own points and pay back the privileged few who paid for their campaigns. The truth is, no m...

re: The Official Singapore Summit Thread | Trump meets Kim | 8PM CDT - Mephistopheles
I don't want to piss on the parade here, because I recognize just a handshake and photo op with Kimmy is a huge fricking deal, because it can open a door to positive future developments, even if nothing actually follows, but A) Where are we on denuking? I feel like it's being ignored now. B) NK h...

re: David Frum's Theory on Melania - Mephistopheles
David Frum is a conservative (remember those?) And his point isn't that Trump did or didn't hit Melania, it's that Trump's legal team leaked a dossier and it makes obstruction of justice legal whilst president....

re: What has Q Anon correctly predicted? - Mephistopheles
If you can't debate respectfully why do it at all. Come on, you're better than this. It's all about evidence. Perhaps you can give a list of a few key terms (including non-common words) that could be put into a site specific google search on tigerdroppings, or perhaps a Q fan blog that lists his ...

re: Avenatti withdraws as Stormy’s attorney in Cohen matter - Mephistopheles
And it was a smart and well calculated move on his part to withdraw his motion to represent Ms Clifford's interests in the SDNY case. Now that Cohen actually has competent representation they were making things a little bit uncomfortable for him. I haven't followed the news closely of late so I ...
