    Sticky: Re: American Politics: We're in for it now

    It looks like that's what they're doing, at least in written form. The only articles I could find on it were the NYPost one, National Review, and Bloomberg Media. I read the Bloomberg one and it does...

    If you're looking to try some Sanderson, the entire Warbreaker book is available free on his website chapter by chapter. Ironically it's one of the few books by him that I haven't read.

    Trump has peddled half a dozen fake cures that all have serious and potentially deadly side effects. He simply can't be trusted on the matter. His endorsement of any vaccine is irrelevant at this...

    I'm guessing your shock is at the wording on Prop 16. Prop 16 basically allows California to reinstate affirmative action, meaning that a No vote is to maintain racial equality (as opposed to...

    Adding to this, Biden's also got a big 6-8 point lead in Wisconsin, with him leading by as much as 10 in recent polls. He's doing arguably better there than in Pennsylvania. Plus, Biden's also...

    I'd argue that Trump won tonight's debate simply by bringing Biden down closer to his level. He wants to depress turnout- two old white guys yelling incoherently at each other works nicely for that....

    The spell slot recovery ability is definitely pretty neat. I appreciate how they've limited it so it won't be too ridiculous (it's still strong early on though!)

    I think my caution in approaching the Wild Magic Barbarian comes from that most of its abilities don't really get stronger, they just get more control over them. And most of those bonus action...

    Susan Collins has also said she won't confirm anyone in a lame-duck Congress. But it's the human embodiment of a shrug, Susan Collins, so take that with a planet of salt.
