2020.10.22 19:25 MillieBunnyZ My boyfriend's mother is setting him up with someone else this Saturday

Yesterday (october 21st) my boyfriend(18m) told me (21MtF [transitioning]) his mother and father (mostly mother) sat down with him and had a long hard talk about how she thinks i'm not fit for him or right for him, he should be with someone else who can make him more happy.
We had recently went to disney world together , his family was kind enough to take me , pay for disney and the flight but not for souvenirs or extra snacks. Disney stuff is outrageously expensive i wasn't really prepared with my half time 20 hours a week job , couldn't save up for this trip in a months time so his parents were kind enough to take us along with them and explore and eat. (otherwise we would walk around by ourselves and really just sightsee and afford a few small things) So we did explore and sight see with them it was a good time, i'm a very picky eater and most food at disney world or epcot was very limited in choices and taste, so most of the time i'd order something i might like or really not and be a bit upset or hungry , i truly felt guilty for doing so because most of the high class exquisite food his parents bought and i didn't eat very much or express my gratitude often, I sincerly regret not making a harder effort to like the food or say thankyou more often, i have great difficulty with manners saying please and thankyou so i didn't say that very often or as much as i should.
Soon before the trip was over my boyfriend had recieved a call and text from his mom, after the call was over he explained saying "My mom says she's appalled by how i don't express any gratitude or much emotion" I wasn't too shocked to hear that from his mother because she has often before told him how she felt and it was usually very rude or unexpected to hear these what seem like to me heartfelt hatred , which i'm sure my boyfriend had actually watered down her words to make it easier on me when he relayed it to me, it hurts to not have her approval being his only biological parent who has been a tough and hard working mother who's done everything she can to get out of a bad home situation with her kid and do school and jobs alone to raise her first son.
I'm by no means a well rounded or perfect person , i cry when i get anxious , i don't express gratitude for the fear of being rejected later or hurt by anothers words later on, i don't want to show weakness to anyone so i try my best not to be down or sad or open up to anyone around me. I'm 21 and don't know how to drive or how taxes work , hell I barely got my first job after a moved here to be with my boyfrend in April (we've known eachother for about 5 or 4 years before we got together) i'm not where i need to be in life because I have no idea what to do or really what I should be doing what my first step is supposed to be, I don't even have an actual goal in life. After highschool i lived far out in the subarbs of Phoenix Arizona down south it was hard to get anywhere without driving only one road to take to the nearest stores and food restaurants , was about a 40 minute walk with more dirt to walk on that concrete I felt so hopeless at home with a constant fear of my family i lived with , always hearing their threats and rude language directed towards my shut door, every whisper i could hear i thought was for me every small thing i could connect to me i truly held on to and beat myself up for , through all that time my internet friends got me through it all and most of all my boyfriend did, we talked together everyday and slept on call with discord. He was still mentally unstable and had trust issues because of his previous breakup and past which was very similar to mine (being cheated on then left from our lives) giving so much love pouring so much time and effort into something for it to be crushed and left with nothing, just shattered peices of our minds and hearts. We soon grew feelings for eachother and wanted to be together physically soon after becoming officially together this i think was still very soon (about almost a year and 3 months in) but what i believed was a necessary step to strengthening our relationship. So i said yes and he convinced his grandparents to let me stay with them (such kind people ) he got me a flight to him about 3 weeks after our decision was made, i quickly had to say goodbye to my dad mom (who i was not living with , i had a hard time staying with my abusive dad so i went to live with my grandparents house with already 7 people and 4 rooms) my mom was homeless and lived on the streets due to her own bad choices so it was very hard to find her. Saying goodbye to my family and few friends so suddenly to be somewhere new with just my boyfriend and his family , having to fit in a totally different environment. It was all so difficult but i did my best for him still am trying to study for my drivers license test.
I gave up what i knew to be somewhere new for him.
I think this turned into a big venting post but hopefully you understand what i'm trying to say. I love him he is very loyal and kind , very mature and has alot going for him, a good family a bright future and passion. Am i right for him? Am i dragging him down? I think there really could be someone better for him than me. If i let this happen on Saturday (in 2 days today is thursday) could i lose him? Do i confront his mom or him? Should i let him have this opportunity? I have no idea what the other person is like but really i'm no good for him...
TLDR: My boyfriend has a date on saturday his mom set him up for , she does not like me nor think i am fit for her son. Do i let this go through?

Welcome back to the fifty-fourth edition of /neoliberal elects the American presidents!
This will be a fairly consistent weekly thing - every week, a new election, until we run out.
I highly encourage you - at least in terms of the vote you cast - to try to think from the perspective of the year the election was held, without knowing the future or how the next administration would go. I'm not going to be trying to enforce that, but feel free to remind fellow commenters of this distinction.
If you're really feeling hardcore, feel free to even speak in the present tense as if the election is truly upcoming!
Whether third and fourth candidates are considered "major" enough to include in the strawpoll will be largely at my discretion and depend on things like whether they were actually intending to run for President, and whether they wound up actually pulling in a meaningful amount of the popular vote and even electoral votes. I may also invoke special rules in how the results will be interpreted in certain elections to better approximate historical reality.
While I will always give some brief background info to spur the discussion, please don't hesitate to bring your own research and knowledge into the mix! There's no way I'll cover everything!
John McCain v Barack Obama, 2008
Profiles
  • John McCain is the 72-year-old Republican candidate and a US Senator from Arizona. His running mate is Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin.
  • Barack Obama is the 47-year-old Democratic candidate and a US Senator from Illinois. His running mate is US Senator from Delaware Joe Biden.
Issues and Background
  • The United States and other countries are in the midst of what many are describing as the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. The crisis was largely triggered by a collapse in home prices, which in turn caused securities tied directly or indirectly to real estate to plummet in value. In September, major investment bank Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy. A day later, the Federal Reserve bailed out and essentially took control of insurance giant AIG. Credit markets were on the brink of meltdown. In early October, Congress passed the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, which created an enormous government program to purchase "toxic assets" from banks and significantly increased the amount of insurance provided by the FDIC. Both McCain and Obama supported this rescue plan. Liquidity appears to have been restored, but the economic situation is still otherwise dire.
    • Senator Obama has described the current crisis as a "final verdict on eight years of failed economic policies promoted by George Bush, supported by Senator McCain, a theory that basically says that we can shred regulations and consumer protections and give more and more to the most, and somehow prosperity will trickle down." Obama has spoken of the importance of oversight over the TARP $700 billion, of the possibility of getting that money back, of making sure none of that money is going to executive pay or executive severance packages, and of following up the package with help for homeowners.
    • Senator McCain has said that what distinguishes him from Senator Obama on how he will lead the country out of the economic crisis is his commitment to get government spending under control. McCain has proposed a one-year spending freeze on "non-defense, non-veterans discretionary spending." McCain has criticized Senator Obama for supporting "pork-barrel spending" in the past.
  • The US occupation of Iraq continues. Last year, the Bush Administration oversaw a troop surge, and the conventional wisdom is that the situation has generally improved as a result. There are some indications that the security situation is improving and that the training of the new Iraqi military is working. That said, pressure on the US to withdraw has increased, as the Iraqi government has sought a withdrawal timetable and the US coalition partners have begun their own withdraw. Security responsibility for several provinces has already been transferred from US forces to Iraqi forces. However, earlier this year, General David Petraeus called for the delaying of troop withdrawals.
    • Both candidates accuse the other of failures of judgement. Senator Obama has criticized McCain sharply for supporting invading Iraq in the first place, while Senator McCain has criticized Obama for not supporting the 2007 surge. On the latter point, in January 2007 Senator Obama's stance was:
      The need to bring this war to an end is here. That is why today I am introducing the Iraq War De-escalation Act of 2007. This plan would not only place a cap on the number of troops in Iraq and stop the escalation: more importantly, it would begin a phased redeployment of United States forced with the goal of removing all United States combat forces from Iraq by March 31, 2008.
    • Early this year, Democrats seized on a statement from Senator McCain in which he indicated that he would be comfortable with an American presence in Iraq for "maybe 100" years. He has stood by the comments, saying he was referring to a presence comparable to what the US has had in South Korea, Germany, and Japan.
    • Under the Obama plan for Iraq, a phased withdrawal of most troops would begin which would likely remove the US troop presence by summer of 2010. A residual force would remain "to conduct targeted counter-terrorism missions against al Qaeda in Iraq and to protect American diplomatic and civilian personnel."
    • Under the McCain plan for Iraq, the US would not leave Iraq "before Al Qaeda in Iraq is defeated and before a competent, trained, and capable Iraqi security force is in place and operating effectively."
  • Sarah Palin has received a significant amount of both positive and negative attention relative to most VP nominees. Supporters praise her history as a reformer, her advocacy for families with special needs children, and her ability to energize parts of the Republican base. However, critics have raised questions about her knowledge of policy and her readiness to be President if it became necessary. Some in the media have expressed frustration at their limited access to Governor Palin. This scrutiny increased following a poorly received interview with Katie Couric which included the following exchanges:
    COURIC: You've cited Alaska's proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?
    PALIN: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side, the land boundary that we have with Canada ... We have trade missions back and forth. We -- we do -- it's very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America, where -- where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to -- to our state.
    ...
    COURIC: What other Supreme Court decisions do you disagree with?
    PALIN: Well, let’s see. There’s, of course in the great history of America there have been rulings, that’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American. And there are those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So you know, going through the history of America, there would be others but …
    COURIC: Can you think of any?
    PALIN: Well, I could think of … any again, that could be best dealt with on a more local level. Maybe I would take issue with. But, you know, as mayor, and then as governor and even as a vice president, if I’m so privileged to serve, wouldn’t be in a position of changing those things but in supporting the law of the land as it reads today.
    ...
    COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your worldview, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?
    PALIN: I’ve read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media.
    COURIC: What, specifically?
    PALIN: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years.
    COURIC: Can you name a few?
    PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news, too. Alaska isn’t a foreign country, where it’s kind of suggested, “Wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C., may be thinking when you live up there in Alaska?”
  • Health care reform has come up frequently on the campaign trail. Both candidates recognize a need to increase coverage and lower costs.
    • The Obama plan includes requiring health insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions, a tax credit to incentivize small businesses to provide health coverage, requirements on large employers to provide health coverage or otherwise contribute financially to their employee's health care, and "a National Health Insurance Exchange with a range of private insurance options as well as a new public plan based on benefits available to members of Congress."
    • The McCain plan is to offer "a direct refundable tax credit ... of $2,500 for individuals and $5,000 for families to offset the cost of insurance" and promote health savings accounts. McCain also seeks to make it easier to purchase health insurance across state lines.
  • Attention has also been given to the candidate's differing tax plans.
    • The Obama tax plan is to cut taxes for the middle class further than the Bush tax cuts did, while increasing taxes on the wealthiest 2% of Americans back to levels as they were in the 1990s. Senator Obama also seeks to implement a universal 10% mortgage interest tax credit, the elimination of income taxes for seniors making less than $50,000 a year, and an expansion of the EITC.
    • The McCain tax plan is to preserve all of the Bush tax cuts, phase out the Alternative Minimum Tax, cut the corporate tax rate to 25%, and establish a large R&D tax credit. Senator McCain also pledges to keep the Internet free of taxes.
    • In October at a campaign stop, Senator Obama was confronted by Joe Wurzelbacher, who has since become known colloquially as "Joe the Plumber", with concerns that he would be taxed more if Senator Obama were to become President. More recently, Wurzelbacher has made joint appearances with John McCain on the campaign trail. The McCain campaign has in particular seized on Obama's comment to Joe that "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."
  • McCain, currently 72, would be the oldest first-term President if elected. McCain gave reporters an opportunity to review his full medical records, which showed that he is generally in good health and has relatively low risk of heart disease despite slightly elevated cholesterol and past issues with skin cancer.
  • If elected, Senator Obama would be the first African-American President of the United States. Obama was born in Hawaii, the son of a Kenyan economist and an anthropologist from Kansas. While many find the possibility of the first African-American President inspiring, particularly when combined with the optimistic rhetoric of Senator Obama's campaign, his identity has also been related to unique challenges for him during the campaign. Members of his own party during the primary implied that his success in the race was mainly due to his race. Former VP nominee Geraldine Ferraro said:
    If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.
    Senator Biden, now Obama's running mate, said:
    I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man.
    In addition, Senator Obama has faced false rumors that he was born in Kenya and that he is not Christian. Some argue that the spread of these rumors is motivated partially or entirely by racism.
  • Republicans have argued that Senator Obama is connected to problematic persons and organizations.
    • Roughly 40 years ago, now-professor Bill Ayers was a leading member of the militant Weather Underground Organization, which conducted a bombing campaign of targeting government buildings and financial institutions. Ayers first met Barack Obama through a non-profit reform project's board of directors, and later hosted a small informal event where a departing State Senator introduced Obama as her chosen successor. Through each of their active involvements in Chicago events and initiatives, they would serve on a couple of the same boards and panels in the years afterwards. There is virtually no evidence to support some Republican claims that Ayers was some sort of political adviser to Obama, who has referred to Ayers as "somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8."
    • Senator Obama's pastor, Jeremiah Wright, has been the subject of controversy related to several sermon excerpts. The excerpts include claims that the government lied about its advance knowledge of Pearl Harbor, that the government lied about "inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color," and his comment that "America's chickens are coming home to roost," interpreted by some to be referring to the 9/11 attacks given the date of the sermon. President Obama addressed the issue in a broader speech on race in March of this year. Senator Obama stated:
      I have already condemned, in unequivocal terms, the statements of Reverend Wright that have caused such controversy. For some, nagging questions remain. Did I know him to be an occasionally fierce critic of American domestic and foreign policy? Of course. Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes. Did I strongly disagree with many of his political views? Absolutely—just as I'm sure many of you have heard remarks from your pastors, priests, or rabbis with which you strongly disagreed.
      ...
      I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother—a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe. These people are a part of me. And they are a part of America, this country that I love.
    • Pro-labor NGO ACORN has been accused by Republicans of orchestrating voter fraud, though further investigation has revealed this claim to be overstated at best. ACORN has hired people in the past to assist in voter registration, and sometimes these workers have come up with phony registrations - however, this issue seems to be motivated by laziness of individual workers rather than an attempt to conduct voter fraud. Obama served as a local counsel for ACORN in the 90s, and was endorsed by the ACORN political action committee during the primary. The Obama campaign also hired an ACORN affiliate for get-out-the-vote efforts during the primary.
  • Representative John Lewis, a civil rights icon, has received blowback for comments he made regarding the tone of the McCain/Palin campaign. Lewis accused the campaign of "sowing the seeds of hatred and division," and brought up the example of George Wallace never throwing a bomb or firing a gun but creating "the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans." McCain called the comments "hurtful" and called on Senator Obama to repudiate the comments. The Obama campaign has said that the comparison made by Rep. Lewis was inappropriate.
  • Senator McCain describes himself as a "free trader" and has criticized Senator Obama for opposing some free trade agreements. The Obama team has pledged to "use trade agreements to spread good labor and environmental standards around the world and stand firm against agreements like the Central American Free Trade Agreement that fail to live up to those important benchmarks." Senator Obama has also pledged to "fix" NAFTA.
Debate Excerpts
First Presidential Debate (full transcript)
(1) Obama on government spending:
John, it's been your president who you said you agreed with 90 percent of the time who presided over this increase in spending. This orgy of spending and enormous deficits you voted for almost all of his budgets. So to stand here and after eight years and say that you're going to lead on controlling spending and, you know, balancing our tax cuts so that they help middle class families when over the last eight years that hasn't happened I think just is, you know, kind of hard to swallow.
(2) McCain on Iraq:
I think the lessons of Iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy that will then cause you to nearly lose a conflict. Our initial military success, we went in to Baghdad and everybody celebrated. And then the war was very badly mishandled. I went to Iraq in 2003 and came back and said, we've got to change this strategy. This strategy requires additional troops, it requires a fundamental change in strategy and I fought for it. And finally, we came up with a great general and a strategy that has succeeded.
(3) Obama on meeting foreign adversaries "without precondition":
I reserve the right, as president of the United States to meet with anybody at a time and place of my choosing if I think it's going to keep America safe ... Now, understand what this means "without preconditions." It doesn't mean that you invite them over for tea one day. What it means is that we don't do what we've been doing, which is to say, "Until you agree to do exactly what we say, we won't have direct contacts with you."
(4) McCain on Iran:
My reading of the threat from Iran is that if Iran acquires nuclear weapons, it is an existential threat to the State of Israel and to other countries in the region because the other countries in the region will feel compelling requirement to acquire nuclear weapons as well.
Now we cannot have a second Holocaust. Let's just make that very clear. What I have proposed for a long time, and I've had conversation with foreign leaders about forming a league of democracies, let's be clear and let's have some straight talk. The Russians are preventing significant action in the United Nations Security Council.
Vice-Presidential Debate (full transcript)
(1) Biden on what his administration would look like if a President Obama were to die in office:
God forbid that would ever happen, it would be a national tragedy of historic proportions if it were to happen.
But if it did, I would carry out Barack Obama's policy, his policies of reinstating the middle class, making sure they get a fair break, making sure they have access to affordable health insurance, making sure they get serious tax breaks, making sure we can help their children get to college, making sure there is an energy policy that leads us in the direction of not only toward independence and clean environment but an energy policy that creates 5 million new jobs, a foreign policy that ends this war in Iraq, a foreign policy that goes after the one mission the American public gave the president after 9/11, to get and capture or kill bin Laden and to eliminate al Qaeda. A policy that would in fact engage our allies in making sure that we knew we were acting on the same page and not dictating.
(2) Palin on what her administration would look like if a President McCain were to die in office:
And heaven forbid, yes, that would ever happen, no matter how this ends up, that that would ever happen with either party.
As for disagreeing with John McCain and how our administration would work, what do you expect? A team of mavericks, of course we're not going to agree on 100 percent of everything. As we discuss ANWR there, at least we can agree to disagree on that one. I will keep pushing him on ANWR. I have so appreciated he has never asked me to check my opinions at the door and he wants a deliberative debate and healthy debate so we can make good policy.
What I would do also, if that were to ever happen, though, is to continue the good work he is so committed to of putting government back on the side of the people and get rid of the greed and corruption on Wall Street and in Washington.
Second Presidential Debate (Town Hall) (full transcript)
(1) McCain on nuclear energy:
But we kept the debate going, and we kept this issue to -- to posing to Americans the danger that climate change opposes. Now, how -- what's -- what's the best way of fixing it? Nuclear power. Senator Obama says that it has to be safe or disposable or something like that. Look, I -- I was on Navy ships that had nuclear power plants. Nuclear power is safe, and it's clean, and it creates hundreds of thousands of jobs.
(2) Obama on McCain's criticism that he's being reckless on foreign policy:
Senator McCain, this is the guy who sang, "Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran," who called for the annihilation of North Korea. That I don't think is an example of "speaking softly." This is the person who, after we had -- we hadn't even finished Afghanistan, where he said, "Next up, Baghdad."
(3) McCain on Russia:
I said before, watch Ukraine. Ukraine, right now, is in the sights of Vladimir Putin, those that want to reassemble the old Soviet Union. We've got to show moral support for Georgia.We've got to show moral support for Ukraine. We've got to advocate for their membership in NATO. We have to make the Russians understand that there are penalties for these this kind of behavior, this kind of naked aggression into Georgia, a tiny country and a tiny democracy.
(4) Obama on spending priorities:
You know, you may have seen your health care premiums go up. We've got to reform health care to help you and your budget. We are going to have to deal with energy because we can't keep on borrowing from the Chinese and sending money to Saudi Arabia. We are mortgaging our children's future. We've got to have a different energy plan. We've got to invest in college affordability. So we're going to have to make some investments, but we've also got to make spending cuts. And what I've proposed, you'll hear Senator McCain say, well, he's proposing a whole bunch of new spending, but actually I'm cutting more than I'm spending so that it will be a net spending cut.
Third Presidential Debate (full transcript)
(1) McCain on Obama's economic plans:
I don't think there's any doubt that Sen. Obama wants to restrict trade and he wants to raise taxes. And the last president of the United States that tried that was Herbert Hoover, and we went from a deep recession into a depression.
(2) Obama on comments by Congressman Lewis:
I mean, look, if we want to talk about Congressman Lewis, who is an American hero, he, unprompted by my campaign, without my campaign's awareness, made a statement that he was troubled with what he was hearing at some of the rallies that your running mate was holding, in which all the Republican reports indicated were shouting, when my name came up, things like "terrorist" and "kill him," and that your running mate didn't mention, didn't stop, didn't say "Hold on a second, that's kind of out of line."
(3) McCain on Obama's connections:
I don't care about an old washed-up terrorist [Bill Ayers]. But as Sen. Clinton said in her debates with you, we need to know the full extent of that relationship.
We need to know the full extent of Sen. Obama's relationship with ACORN, who is now on the verge of maybe perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in voter history in this country, maybe destroying the fabric of democracy. The same front outfit organization that your campaign gave $832,000 for "lighting and site selection." So all of these things need to be examined, of course.
(4) Obama on who he associates with:
Let me tell you who I associate with. On economic policy, I associate with Warren Buffett and former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker. If I'm interested in figuring out my foreign policy, I associate myself with my running mate, Joe Biden or with Dick Lugar, the Republican ranking member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, or General Jim Jones, the former supreme allied commander of NATO.
Those are the people, Democrats and Republicans, who have shaped my ideas and who will be surrounding me in the White House. And I think the fact that this has become such an important part of your campaign, Sen. McCain, says more about your campaign than it says about me.

2020.10.15 07:05 Throwaway27859684 Should A Single Person Buy a House? Also, question on Brokerage Accounts

Baby Step 6-7 is where I am technically I think. I have been investing into retirement instead of buying a house.
I currently rent for $370/month with all utilities included (except internet) for a studio apartment. The least expensive move-in ready house in my town is usually around $110,000. The median house is around $163,000.
Today: I am currently putting money into my Brokerage Account for the last 7 paychecks of the year 2020 since my Roth IRA and 401k are maxed for the year 2020. Never had a Brokerage Account before. If someone can break down how taxes work in Brokerage Accounts, I'd appreciate it. I have just been contributing to it in 2020 for the first time with no real clue how they work.
Age: 30
Annual Income: $46,500 pretax with no overtime (I can usually get around $13,500 in overtime on average; thus $60,000 pretax is realistic for me).
Future Life Plans: No kids (vasectomy), No dating (no desire), No pets (no desire), No garden (no desire). I really do not want a house either as I am more of a "condo" owner in my dreams. However, there are no condos in my rural town. I have pushed off home buying for 6-7 years because I was really hoping a condo complex would have been built in my rural town, but it never happened. Now that I am 30 years old, I am revisiting this topic again.
Minor Future Plan (no timeline for this): I'd like to get 200 (minimum)-500 (maximum) one ounce silver eagles in my life. I sadly have 0 today (had 200 at one point but sold all of them to help me get rid of the car debt I had before). I am debating on if I max my retirement accounts early in the year, whether to use the last paychecks of the year to buy silver eagles or just dump into Brokerage Account VTSAX again. I figure I better do Brokerage Account VTSAX until I make up my mind on housing. I also have no idea where I'd store the silver eagles. I'd feel uneasy in my house as well as the bank safety deposit box. But maybe the bank safety deposit box would be safest. Maybe put in my trunk where my Spare Tire and Tools are? I have no idea. No place really feels safe to me. I'd also prefer to own them physically than buy the ETF versions. If I had to choose today on where to store them: I'd store all of the silver eagles in the safety deposit box rental, except one coin by my bed. I realize Dave Ramsey thinks precious metals are a bad investment. I just want 200-500 silver eagles for fun. I like stacking them and looking at them. I have the internal stopping measure at 500 though.
Employment: Been employed at same company for 8 years. Plan to work there until I die (0-100 for enjoyment: 97; very few bad days for me on the happiness scale). But if I lose my job for any reason, I am moving to another State to a city as I prefer city life to rural life. It is a physical job, so I have to be mindful of when I get older if my body can handle the work. Thus, I need to be able to financially retire by age 60 incase my body can't handle the work and the company has no other job I can do. I am hoping when my body can't do that kind of work, they allow me to do another job at the company. But that is years down the road under a new owner by that time I am sure. I also want to bartend on the side, but I can't land a job in my rural town sadly. No one will hire me without experience.
Retirement Plans Currently: I plan to work for my employer until my death ideally. I like the company. If I lose my job though, I doubt I'll find as good of an employer so I'd like to retire somewhat early (say 35 years of working for social security purposes). Because Minnesota has harsh winters and slipping on ice at an old age is dangerous, I may have to retire no matter what around age 60-70 and move somewhere hot (looking at Sun City, Arizona being a 55+ city). Side note is I plan to delay social security until max age for longevity insurance basically (I know some argue to just take it early and invest it all. I see social security as insurance to longevity, not an investment in the stock market opportunity).
Investment Strategy: I want to remain 100% stocks for life through VTSAX for all my investments (except the Silver Eagles I just want for fun to stack and look at). Since my 401k does not have VTSAX, I had to use VINIX and VEXAX instead.
Location: [Rural Town], Minnesota (higher tax State)
Debt: None
Current car: Honda Fit with 24,000 miles driving 5,500 per year. Plan to drive for another 27 years or so, then buy another new vehicle sometime around that timeframe pardon it being totaled early.
Cash: $427
Checking: $5,950
Savings: $5
401k: $266,921 ($203,482 is Roth) invested in: 64% VINIX and 36% VEXAX
Traditional IRA's: $1,502 invested in: 100% VTSAX
Roth IRA's: $61,381 invested in: 100% VTSAX
Brokerage Account Contributions: $9,352 (all in year 2020) invested in: 100% VTSAX
Monthly expenses if I spend $12,001.20 per year on food. This is $32.88 per day on food. Realistically, I probably spend around $9,000/year currently. I just plan for worst case scenario. Food is my #1 Vice in life, followed by reading Kindle Unlimited.
12-months of expenses: $23,805
6-months of expenses: $11,902.50 5-months of expenses: $9,918.75 4-months of expenses: $7,935.00 3-months of expenses: $5,951.25

2020.10.14 07:39 DezzNutsInYoFace Regarding AR 10 and 15 and Custom Building

Where can I purchase a Cobb mcr 300 that shoots in 30-06? I have been searching the internet and I have found no results aside from old sales that date back to the early 2000s. Did the company go bankrupt? Also are there any websites or areas in Arizona that I can go to so I can custom order an AR 15/10 that can shoot in 300 Win Mag, 30-06, or 336 Laupa?

Welcome back to the fifty-third edition of /neoliberal elects the American presidents!
This will be a fairly consistent weekly thing - every week, a new election, until we run out.
I highly encourage you - at least in terms of the vote you cast - to try to think from the perspective of the year the election was held, without knowing the future or how the next administration would go. I'm not going to be trying to enforce that, but feel free to remind fellow commenters of this distinction.
If you're really feeling hardcore, feel free to even speak in the present tense as if the election is truly upcoming!
Whether third and fourth candidates are considered "major" enough to include in the strawpoll will be largely at my discretion and depend on things like whether they were actually intending to run for President, and whether they wound up actually pulling in a meaningful amount of the popular vote and even electoral votes. I may also invoke special rules in how the results will be interpreted in certain elections to better approximate historical reality.
While I will always give some brief background info to spur the discussion, please don't hesitate to bring your own research and knowledge into the mix! There's no way I'll cover everything!
George Bush v John Kerry, 2004
Profiles
  • George Bush is the 58-year-old Republican candidate and the current President. His running mate is Vice President Dick Cheney.
  • John Kerry is the 61-year-old Democratic candidate and a US Senator from Massachusetts. His running mate is US Senator from North Carolina John Edwards.
Issues and Background
  • One thing both President Bush and Senator Kerry agree on is that on September 11th, 2001, everything changed. On that date, the United States was attacked by the transnational Salafist terrorist organization known as Al-Qaeda. Nineteen terrorists hijacked four passenger airlines. Two planes were flown into the World Trade Center complex, causing the collapse of the North and South towers. Another plane was flown into the Pentagon. The fourth plane did not reach its intended target, with the hijackers thwarted by the plane's passengers - the plane instead crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks.
    • One week after the attacks, letters containing toxic anthrax spores were sent over several weeks to media outlets and politicians. Initial speculation including from top government officials suggested the letters may have somehow been connected to Al Qaeda or Iraq, but recent publicly known developments suggest the perpetrator may have been an American connected to the intelligence community.
    • The Bush Administration has taken a number of military actions internationally since the attacks as part of a global "war on terror." The most significant operations are given their own summaries in later bullet points.
    • The leader of Al-Qaeda is Osama bin Laden, and there is an ongoing manhunt for him. Senator Kerry claims that the United States had Osama bin Laden pinned down in Tora Bora but that President Bush outsourced the manhunt to Afghan warlords, and that this is why the terrorist leader was able to escape. This characterization is disputed by President Bush and by General Tommy Franks, who was in charge of US forces in Afghanistan at the time. Just days before the election, a new 17 minute video message from Osama Bin Laden has emerged.
    • On October 26, 2001, President Bush signed the Patriot Act. This legislation expands the ability of law enforcement to monitor phone calls and conduct other surveillance, allows greater pooling of intelligence resources across agencies, and expanded the types of crimes considered "terrorism" as well as the penalties for being found guilty of terrorism. Senator Kerry supports the legislation but has suggested it be amended to be stronger against money laundering and possibly increasing oversight of government surveillance powers. Kerry also says he doesn't like the way the current Attorney General has sometimes applied the legislation.
    • In late 2002, President Bush signed legislation creating a Department of Homeland Security.
  • In October 2001, following a failure to come to an agreement with the Taliban regarding the extradition of Osama Bin Laden, the United States invaded Afghanistan. By December, the United States had overthrown the Taliban regime and begun a rebuilding effort in the nation. Since then, and especially since 2003, the United States has fought the Taliban insurgency which formed from the remnants of the Taliban regime. In October of this year, Afghanistan held national elections, which President Bush has touted as a major success. Senator Kerry has described Afghanistan as the "right" war (in contrast with Iraq as the "wrong" war) and seeks to increase the number of American and allied troops in the country.
  • Starting in 2002, the United States began making the case to the country and to the international community for an invasion of Iraq. In October of that year, Congress passed an authorization of force against Iraq should it be considered necessary by the President. The authorization cited interference with weapons inspectors, domestic repression, the possession and development of chemical and biological weapons capabilities, seeking of nuclear weapons capability, and the presence of Al-Qaeda members in Iraq among other justifications.
    In February 2003, Secretary of State Colin Powell presented evidence to the United Nations, arguing that Iraq did possess weapons of mass destruction and was attempting to conceal this fact. He also attempted to link Iraq and Al-Qaeda, primarily through Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi. A month later, the United States announced to the world that diplomacy had failed, and proceeded to invade Iraq alongside the United Kingdom, Australia, and Poland. In April, Baghdad fell, and Saddam Hussein's reign of power ended.
    In May 2003, President Bush announced the end of major combat operations in Iraq in front of a banner reading "Mission Accomplished." What has proceeded since has been an occupation of Iraq which has dealt with a number of challenges. The United States set up a provisional government headed by an American diplomat. This provisional government dissolved the Iraqi military. Unemployment skyrocketed and many government services ended. The United States has since then had to combat an insurgency comprised of former members of the Iraqi military, surviving loyalists to Saddam Hussein, and religious militants. In June of this year, the US and its allies transferred power to a new Iraqi government led by Ayad Allawi.
    • In April of this year, CBS revealed evidence of egregious human rights violations being committed by US Army and CIA personnel against detainees in a prison in Iraq.
    • Just recently, the Iraq Survey Group submitted a final report concluding that Saddam Hussein's Iraq had no chemical weapons, no biological weapons, and no capacity to make nuclear weapons. President Bush's response to the report was as follows:
      Chief weapons inspector, Charles Duelfer, has now issued a comprehensive report that confirms the earlier conclusion of David Kay that Iraq did not have the weapons that our intelligence believed were there. ... The Duelfer report showed that Saddam was systematically gaming the system, using the U.N. oil-for-food program to try to influence countries and companies in an effort to undermine sanctions. He was doing so with the intent of restarting his weapons program, once the world looked away. Based on all the information we have today, I believe we were right to take action, and America is safer today with Saddam Hussein in prison.
    • Republicans have accused Senator Kerry of "flip-flopping" on Iraq, because he voted for the authorization of force there and called Hussein a grave threat, but this year has been very critical of the intervention. He has attempted to reconcile the issue:
      Well, let me tell you straight up, I've never changed my mind about Iraq. I do believe Saddam Hussein was a threat. I always believed he was a threat—believed it in 1998 when Clinton was President. I wanted to give Clinton the power to use force if necessary. But I would have used that force wisely. I would have used that authority wisely, not rushed to war without a plan to win the peace. I would have brought our allies to our side. I would have fought to make certain our troops had everybody possible to help them win the mission.
    • Senator Kerry's plan for Iraq is to use international diplomacy to shift the burden of the rebuilding effort away from the US during his first term. He has said it is possible that by the end of his first term, most of the foreign troops in Iraq would come from countries other than the US. He plans to solicit more international help in Iraq by granting the international community greater access to reconstruction contracts and greater say in the development of a permanent Iraqi government.
  • President Bush has signed into law two rounds of tax cuts. The first bill, in 2001, cut federal income tax breaks for several brackets, cut capital gains taxes, and began a phaseout of the estate tax. The second bill in 2003 lowered rates further. Senator Kerry intends to repeal the Bush tax cuts but only for those making over $200,000 a year.
  • In the 1960s, John Kerry served a four-month tour of duty during the Vietnam War, receiving several medals including three Purple Hearts. He first gained some national recognition as an anti-war activist upon returning, through his involvement with Vietnam Veterans Against the War. Returning to the present, a political group "Swift Vets and POWs for Truth" has formed to oppose Senator Kerry's presidential candidacy. The group claims that Kerry has exaggerated some claims about his service and hurt his fellow servicemen by opposing the war upon return to the US. The group has gone so far as to say he is "unfit to serve" as President. The group has released several television advertisements and a book. As time has gone on, the claims against Kerry have come under serious scrutiny, with some evidence (1) (2) (3) suggesting the attacks on Kerry are unfair or misleading.
  • At the end of last year, President Bush signed into law a major overhaul of Medicare. Perhaps most significantly, a new prescription drug benefit for Medicare beneficiaries will go into effect in 2006. Senator Kerry has attacked President Bush for blocking attempts to allow the importation or at least reimportation of drugs from Canada.
  • In 2002, President Bush signed the No Child Left Behind Act. The main provisions of the legislation mandate an expansion of standardized testing at the state level for public schools receiving federal funds. Further provisions and prescribed corrective action in the legislation depend on a school's ability to consistently improve standardized test scores. Senator Kerry supported the legislation but has criticized the President for not fully funding the associated programs.
  • Embryonic stem cells, coming from human embryos that are about 3-5 days old, are special cells which can divide to form the more specialized cells that are associated with a fully functioning human body. Scientists speak highly of the promise that research on these cells holds, and the potential treatments that could come from such research. However, many conservatives object partially or entirely to embryonic stem cell research because it typically involves the destruction of a human embryo. In 2001, President Bush issued an executive order only allowing federal funds for such research on colonies of stem cells which already existed when the policy was announced. The Bush Administration has argued this is a policy which compromises between ethics and the scientific value of the research. Senator Kerry wants to lift this partial ban.
  • In May of this year, Massachusetts became the first US state to license and recognize same-sex marriages, following a relevant court decision in 2003. John Kerry and George Bush both say they believe marriage is between one man and one woman. However, President Bush supports a Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, which Senator Kerry does not. Kerry also voted against the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.
  • As an exemplification of what they argue is the broader issue of Kerry's alleged "flip-flopping," President Bush and other members of his campaign have repeatedly referred to a quote from Senator Kerry in March, in which he said of a military supplemental appropriations bill, "I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it." Kerry has since said he regrets his phrasing.
Debate Excerpts
Quotations in excerpt titles refer to moderator's prompt, block quotations are from named candidate(s).
First Presidential Debate (full transcript)
(1) Bush on Iraq:
My opponent looked at the same intelligence I looked at and declared, in 2002, that Saddam Hussein was a grave threat. He also said, in December of 2003, that anyone who doubts that the world is safer without Saddam Hussein does not have the judgment to be President. I agree with him. The world is better off without Saddam Hussein.
(2) Kerry on Iraq:
The President just talked about Iraq as a center of the war on terror. Iraq was not even close to the center of the war on terror before the President invaded it. The President made the judgment to divert forces from under General Tommy Franks from Afghanistan before the Congress even approved it, to begin to prepare to go to war in Iraq. And he rushed to war in Iraq without a plan to win the peace.
(3) Bush on homeland security:
But the best way to protect this homeland is to stay on the offense. We have to be right 100 percent of the time, and the enemy only has to be right once to hurt us. There's a lot of good people working hard. And by the way, we've also changed the culture of the FBI to have counterterrorism as its number one priority. We're communicating better. We're going to reform our intelligence services to make sure that we get the best intelligence possible. The PATRIOT Act is vital. It's vital that the Congress renew the PATRIOT Act, which enables our law enforcement to disrupt terrorist cells.
(4) Kerry on the coalition in Iraq:
The United Nations' Kofi Annan offered help after Baghdad fell. And we never picked him up on that and did what was necessary to transfer authority and to transfer reconstruction. It was always American-run. Secondly, when we went in, there were three countries, Great Britain, Australia, and the United States. That's not a grand coalition. We can do better.
(5) Bush on the coalition in Iraq:
Well, actually, he forgot Poland. And now, there are 30 nations involved, standing side by side with our American troops, and I honor their sacrifices. And I don't appreciate it when a candidate for President denigrates the contributions of these brave—brave soldiers. It's—you cannot lead the world if you do not honor the contributions of those who are with us. He called them the "coerced and the bribed." That's not how you bring people together. Our coalition is strong. It will remain strong, for my—so long as I'm the President.
(6) Kerry on whether President Bush lied:
First of all, we all know that in his State of the Union Message he told Congress about nuclear materials that didn't exist. We know that he promised America that he was going to build this coalition. I just described the coalition. It is not the kind of coalition we were described when we were talking about voting for this. The President said he would exhaust the remedies of the United Nations and go through that full process. He didn't. He cut it off, sort of arbitrarily. And we know that there were further diplomatics—efforts underway. They just decided the time for diplomacy is over and rushed to war without planning for what happens afterwards. Now, he misled the American people in his speech when he said, "We will plan carefully." They obviously didn't. He misled the American people when he said, "We'd go to war as a last resort." We did not go as a last resort. And most Americans know the difference.
Vice-Presidential Debate (full transcript)
(1) Cheney on the connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda:
Concern about Iraq specifically focused on the fact that Saddam Hussein had been, for years, listed on the state sponsor of terror, that they he had established relationships with Abu Nidal, who operated out of Baghdad; he paid $25,000 to the families of suicide bombers; and he had an established relationship with Al Qaida. Specifically, look at George Tenet, the CIA director's testimony before the Committee on Foreign Relations two years ago when he talked about a 10-year relationship.
The effort that we've mounted with respect to Iraq focused specifically on the possibility that this was the most likely nexus between the terrorists and weapons of mass destruction.
(2) Edwards on Iraq:
The vice president suggests that we have the same number of countries involved now that we had in the first Gulf War. The first Gulf War cost the American people $5 billion.
And regardless of what the vice president says, we're at $200 billion and counting. Not only that, 90 percent of the coalition casualties, Mr. Vice President, the coalition casualties, are American casualties. Ninety percent of the cost of this effort are being borne by American taxpayers. It is the direct result of the failures of this administration.
(3) Cheney on Edwards:
Your hometown newspaper has taken to calling you "Senator Gone." You've got one of the worst attendance records in the United States Senate. Now, in my capacity as vice president, I am the president of Senate, the presiding officer. I'm up in the Senate most Tuesdays when they're in session.
The first time I ever met you was when you walked on the stage tonight.
(4) Edwards on Cheney:
The vice president, I'm surprised to hear him talk about records. When he was one of 435 members of the United States House, he was one of 10 to vote against Head Start, one of four to vote against banning plastic weapons that can pass through metal detectors.
He voted against the Department of Education. He voted against funding for Meals on Wheels for seniors. He voted against a holiday for Martin Luther King. He voted against a resolution calling for the release of Nelson Mandela in South Africa.
Second Presidential Debate (Town Hall) (full transcript)
(1) Bush on government spending:
We have a deficit. We have a deficit because this country went into a recession. You might remember the stock market started to decline dramatically 6 months before I came to office, and then the bubble of the 1990s popped. And that cost us rev-enue—that cost us revenue.
Secondly, we're at war. And I'm going to spend what it takes to win the war, more than just 120 billion for Iraq and Afghanistan. We've got to pay our troops more. We have. We've increased money for ammunition and weapons and pay and homeland security. I just told this lady over here we spent—went from 10 to 30 billion dollars to protect the homeland. I think we have an obligation to spend that kind of money.
(2) Kerry on taxes:
Right into the camera—yes. I am not going to raise taxes. I have a tax cut, and here's my tax cut. I raise the child care credit by $1,000 for families to help them be able to take care of their kids. I have a $4,000 tuition tax credit that goes to parents and kids, if they're earning for themselves, to be able to pay for college. And I lower the cost of health care in the way that I described to you.
(3) Bush on health care:
Let me start with how to control the costs of health care: Medical liability reform, for starters, which he's opposed. Secondly, allow small businesses to pool together so they can share risk and buy insurance at the same discounts big businesses get to do. Thirdly, spread what's called health savings accounts. It's good for small businesses, good for owners. You own your own account. You can save tax-free. You get a catastrophic plan to help you— own it. This is different from saying, "Okay, let me incent you to go on the Government."
(4) Kerry on abortion restrictions:
Well, again, the President just said categorically, "My opponent is against this. My opponent is against that." It's just not that simple. No, I'm not. I'm against the partial-birth abortion, but you've got to have an exception for the life of the mother and the health of the mother under the strictest test of bodily injury to the mother. Secondly, with respect to parental notification, I'm not going to require a 16- or 17-year old kid who's been raped by her father and who's pregnant to have to notify her father. So you've got to have a judicial intervention. And because they didn't have a judicial intervention where she could go somewhere and get help, I voted against it. It's never quite as simple as the President wants you to believe.
Third Presidential Debate (full transcript)
(1) Bush on the flu vaccine shortage:
Bob, we relied upon a company out of England to provide about half of the flu vaccines for the United States citizen, and it turned out that the vaccine they were producing was contaminated. And so we took the right action and didn't allow contaminated medicine into our country. We're working with Canada to, hopefully—that they'll produce a—help us realize the vaccine necessary to make sure our citizens have got flu vaccinations during this upcoming season.
My call to our fellow Americans is, if you're healthy, if you're younger, don't get a flu shot this year. Help us prioritize those who need to get the flu shot, the elderly and the young. The CDC, responsible for health in the United States, is setting those priorities and is allocating the flu vaccine accordingly. I haven't gotten a flu shot, and I don't intend to, because I want to make sure that those who are most vulnerable get treated.
(2) Kerry on whether homosexuality is a choice:
We're all God's children, Bob, and I think if you were to talk to Dick Cheney's daughter, who is a lesbian, she would tell you that she's being who she was. She's being who she was born as. I think if you talk to anybody, it's not choice. I've met people who've struggled with this for years, people who were in a marriage because they were living a sort of convention, and they struggled with it. And I've met wives who are supportive of their husbands, or vice versa, when they finally sort of broke out and allowed themselves to live who they were, who they felt God had made them. I think we have to respect that.
(3) Bush on Social Security:
I believe that younger workers ought to be allowed to take some of their own money and put it in a personal savings account, because I understand that they need to get better rates of return than the rates of return being given in the current Social Security trust. And the compounding rate of interest effect will make it more likely that the Social Security system is solvent for our children and our grandchildren.
(4) Kerry on assault weapons:
I believe it was a failure of Presidential leadership not to reauthorize the assault weapons ban. I am a hunter. I'm a gun owner. I've been a hunter since I was a kid, 12, 13 years old. And I respect the second amendment, and I will not tamper with the second amendment. But I'll tell you this. I'm also a former law enforcement officer. I ran one of the largest district attorney offices in America, one of the 10 largest. I've put people behind bars for the rest of their life. I've broken up organized crime. I know something about prosecuting. And most of the law enforcement agencies in America wanted that assault weapons ban. They don't want to go into a drug bust and be facing an AK-47.

2020.10.10 20:33 CryptoJennie Upcoming AMA with Brian Clifton, VP of Engineering at Brave (Oct. 16, 2020)

Event date, time, and location: Friday, October 16th, from 10:00am - 11:30pm Pacific on BATProject

About Brian

Hi everybody, I'm Brian Clifton! I'm the VP of Engineering at Brave and I oversee development on the Desktop, Android, and iOS products. I joined Brave Software back in 2016 and you'll often see me on GitHub responding to user issues, trying to help with code reviews, and occasionally fixing a bug or working on a new feature. Before Brave, I spent 8 years as a developer at GoDaddy working on different hosting products. Before GoDaddy, I worked at Intel in the manufacturing (TMG) org for almost 3 years helping with factory automation. And then a few smaller businesses here in the Phoenix (Arizona) area before that.
I started programming back in the early 1990's with HyperCard, Macromedia Director (Lingo), and then C++. I was definitely fortunate that our family has always had a computer and internet. I grew up with Nintendo (NES/SNES/Gameboy) and always wanted to work on video games. I made a lot of really bad video games and uploaded to the AOL HyperCard stack section where I got to meet a lot of online friends and chat with them about programming. I learned most of what I know by writing programs, talking about it with friends over AOL or IRC, and learning from another person when I'm lucky enough to work on a project with them.
Working on software is definitely my passion. I've had a lot of amazing opportunities to learn with and from others and I love being able to share these findings with folks and help them with their own personal and professional growth goals.
While I never got to work on a video game professionally, I have worked with a team of friends and released a game on Xbox 360 and Steam called Magicians and Looters: http://mal-game.com/
When I'm not programming, I love spending time with family at home, reading comics and watching movies with my 7 year old son Mikey, and learning about / working on older Mercedes-Benz cars. Lately, I've been dismantling broken down Mercedes "W126" cars (1979-1991 S Class) and helping get the parts to other enthusiasts so that they can keep these classics on the road. My in-laws have a ranch home in San Luis Potosí, Mexico that we all visit once a year to get away from regular life and eat delicious food like Enchiladas Potosinas.
____________________
Please leave your questions for Brian in the comments below. Questions will be gathered, vetted and posted by the host, u/CryptoJennie, during the event (with credit to the OP). If you can make it to the live event, we also encourage you to ask questions while the AMA is taking place. See you there!

2020.10.05 16:43 rusticgorilla Lost in the Sauce: Trump's National Security Advisor accepts Russia's promise not to interfere dispute mountains of evidence

TITLE SHOULD SAY "DESPITE MOUNTAINS OF EVIDENCE."
 
Welcome to Lost in the Sauce, keeping you caught up on political and legal news that often gets buried in distractions and theater… or a global health crisis.
Housekeeping:

Russia

Interference: Russia’s Internet Research Agency has been exposed posing as an independent news outlet to target right-wing social media users ahead of the U.S. elections. Last month, Facebook and Twitter uncovered a similar operation run by Russian state actors targeting the left.
Interference: National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien met with his Russian counterpart Nikolai Patrushev in Geneva on Friday, reportedly accepting Russia’s promise not to interfere in the election… despite mountains of evidence that Russian operations have been and continue to be underway. On Face the Nation, O’Brien confirmed Russia’s commitment but added “we’ll see what happens.”
Russian media: Russian state media reacted to Trump’s performance in the debate last week, conceding that Biden won: “All the while we’ve been thinking that Biden is feeble, but it turns out he isn’t. He was able to handle the debate well and acted in an absolutely normal way.” However, a host was sure to point out that not all is lost for Trump’s fans in Russia and beyond: “In 2016, Hillary also allegedly outperformed Trump… but still didn’t end up in the Oval Office.”
Top Kremlin propagandist Dmitry Kiselyov: “Trump is in a hurry, because in case of a disputed outcome, the question of who will become president will be decided by the Supreme Court…the funniest thing is that no one expects the justices of the Supreme Court to act in a just manner.”
Trump’s role: Following Trump’s non-stop lies and misinformation regarding voting and the election during the debate, former national security adviser H.R. McMaster said the president is “aiding and abetting” Putin’s disinformation efforts.
Trump’s role: According to NYT, American intelligence and homeland security officials are worried Trump’s “rant about a fraudulent vote may have been intended for more than just a domestic audience.”
They have been worried for some time that his warnings are a signal to outside powers — chiefly the Russians — for their disinformation campaigns, which have seized on his baseless theme that the mail-in ballots are ridden with fraud. But what concerns them the most is that over the next 34 days, the country may begin to see disruptive cyberoperations, especially ransomware, intended to create just enough chaos to prove the president’s point.
DNI’s role: Just hours before the debate last week, Trump’s DNI John Ratcliffe declassified a Russian intelligence assessment that was previously rejected by both parties on the the Senate Intelligence Committee as having no factual basis. The document claims that then-candidate Hillary Clinton personally approved an effort “to stir up a scandal against” Trump “by tying him to Putin and the Russians' hacking of the [DNC].” In his letter to Sen. Lindsey Graham, Ratcliffe noted that the U.S. intelligence community “does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the extent to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication.”
“I’m not saying whether it’s true or not,” Graham told reporters. “I’m asking Democrats, do you give a damn whether the FBI investigated it, or do you just care only about investigating Trump?”
CIA and NSA officials reportedly urged Ratcliffe not to release the Russian assessment, arguing it could have been deliberate disinformation.
Moscow mayor: Trump accused Hunter Biden of receiving millions from the wife of Moscow's late mayor Yury Luzhkov. But Trump himself sought business with Luzhkov's government in the 90s, according to press reports, SEC filings, and comments made by Luzhkov last year.

Courts and DOJ

NYAG: Eric Trump is scheduled to speak via video today with New York state investigators probing his family’s business practices. A judge two weeks ago gave Eric Trump until Oct. 7 to comply with a subpoena for his testimony in New York AG Letitia James’ investigation into whether the family company, the Trump Organization, lied about the value of its assets in order to get loans or tax benefits.
Vance: The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office said it will not seek to enforce a subpoena for Trump’s income tax returns until the president’s appeal of the subpoena is resolved. During oral arguments on last month, Second Circuit Judge Pierre Leval suggested that he was allowed to collect the records from Mazars immediately.
Flynn: District Judge Emmet Sullivan heard arguments last week related to the DOJ’s attempt to drop charges against Michael Flynn. Sullivan suggested that he is not yet prepared to let the government abandon the prosecution and still has more questions about the case. Under questioning, Flynn’s lawyer Sidney Powell admitted that she briefed Trump on the case within the last two weeks and requested that he not issue a pardon.
Flynn: A lawyer for Peter Strzok told Judge Sullivan that someone had altered handwritten notes by his client in one of the recent batches of internal materials turned over to Powell — adding two dates to them that he did not write, including one that suggested a White House meeting happened earlier than it did. Judge Sullivan ordered the Justice Department to provide a sworn declaration certifying whether the materials submitted to him “were true and accurate,” saying he was “floored” by the “unsettling” claim that they had been modified.
Census: The Census Bureau finally committed to continuing its count through the end of October, after initially defying District Judge Lucy Koh’s order. The Commerce Dept. is appealing her decision.
She said the Census Bureau was “chaotic, dilatory, and incomplete” in following her original injunction, and issued a clarified injunction, directing the Bureau that it must continue its count through Oct. 31, and publicize its efforts to do so, including texting employees on Friday to inform them.
Wohl charged: Two right-wing operatives and conspiracy theorists were charged for intimidating voters with inaccurate robocalls that discouraged residents in urban areas from casting their ballots by mail. Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman were charged with four felonies of intimidating voters, conspiring to violate election law, and using a computer to commit a crime.
Parscale: Trump's former campaign manager Brad Parscale was hospitalized last Sunday following reports of a suicide attempt at his Florida home. The Friday before, Parscale apparently told Trump campaign staffers and friends that he was under federal investigation. No further details are known but Vanity Fair reported that the Trump family is worried that Parscale could turn on them and cooperate with law enforcement about possible campaign finance violations. “The family is worried Brad will start talking,” the source said.
  • There are unconfirmed reports from less reputable outlets (like DailyMail) that Parscale is under investigation for stealing up to $40 million from Trump’s campaign and $10 million from the RNC.
Paxton: Top aides of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton have asked federal law enforcement authorities to investigate allegations of improper influence, abuse of office, bribery, and other potential crimes against the state’s top lawyer. In a one-page letter to the state agency’s director of human resources, seven executives in the upper tiers of the office said they each have “knowledge of facts relevant to these potential offenses and [have] provided statements concerning those facts to the appropriate law enforcement.”
Political interference: FBI directors are appointed to 10 year terms to avoid politicization. Trump told multiple people "he intends to replace Wray near the start of a 2nd term" because of "unwillingness to swiftly root out Trump’s perceived enemies in the bureau."

Trump money and campaign

Kushner: The Kushner family real estate company was granted $850 million in government-backed loans with “unusually good terms.” The loans backed by the government-sponsored Freddie Mac last year to Kushner Companies made it possible for the business to purchase thousands of apartments in Maryland and Virginia in its largest deal in a decade.
Conflicts: Kushner holds an ownership stake worth between $25 million and $50 million in Cadre, a real estate investment firm that he helped start in 2014 with his brother. In a newly reported aspect of the conflict of interest, Cadre is eager to capitalize on “distress” in the real estate market caused by the pandemic. Without aid, owners are going to be forced to sell or be foreclosed upon, opening opportunities for Cadre to get property for cheap. Kushner, as part of the White House, is likely involved in discussions regarding coronavirus relief packages.
The hotel industry says it needs federal help to stay afloat. Cadre has indicated it is interested in hunting for hotels that go under. Kushner is involved with each of the competing sides of this equation. He could well personally benefit, if Cadre starts making a buck off hotels clobbered by the coronavirus that do not receive federal assistance.
Preferential treatment: Donors who have provided private jet travel to Trump's re-election campaign have later seen family members receive pardons, had their companies receive additional government contracts, or received substantial coronavirus aid very quickly. “Records reviewed by The Associated Press show that donors with private aircraft have provided nearly $600,000 in private flights since July 2019 to Trump Victory, the president’s big-dollar fundraising committee led by Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Fox News star who is dating Donald Trump Jr.”
Corruption: Last week, the USDA began requiring that a letter crediting Trump be included in millions of federally funded food aid boxes distributed across the nation to families in need. Organizations handing out the aid complain the program is now being used to bolster Trump’s image a month before a high-stakes election — and some even have refused to distribute them.
San Francisco-Marin Food Bank is removing the letters at distribution sites and asking any of the neighborhood pantries in their network that receive these boxes to do the same, says Keely Hopkins, the food bank’s communications and social media manager. “We wouldn’t put any third-party messaging in our boxes, and we wouldn’t want anyone to think we are pushing a political message,” she said.
Guilfoyle: Fox News paid the former assistant to ex-host Kimberly Guilfoyle upward of $4 million to avoid going to trial after the employee wrote a 2018 draft complaint detailing allegations of sexual harassment against her. Guilfoyle currently serves as the Trump campaign's finance chair and is dating Don Jr.
Guilfoyle told her that she needed to know what the assistant would say if she were asked about sexual harassment, and warned her that she could cause great damage if she said the wrong thing. Guilfoyle, she said, told her that, in exchange for demonstrating what Guilfoyle called loyalty, she would work out a payment to take care of her — possibly, she said, with funds from Bolling.
Tapes: Melania Trump was secretly recorded in the summer of 2018 expressing her frustration at being criticized for her husband's policy of separating families who illegally crossed the southern border while at the same time needing to perform traditional first lady duties, such as preparing for Christmas (YouTube clip).

Miscellaneous

Immigration: CDC officials objected to orders issued in March allowing agents at the border to immediately return to Mexico any migrants they encountered crossing the border, citing the threat of the coronavirus. At the time, White House officials said it was a decision driven by public-health experts.
A review of internal government documents and interviews with people involved in the process, however, show the policy was driven by immigration officials in the administration over the objections of senior officials at the CDC, the agency with the authority to issue the order, who warned the rationale behind enacting the pandemic policy was an inappropriate use of its public-health powers.
The AP reports that Mike Pence intervened after the CDC refused to comply. “That was a Stephen Miller special. He was all over that,” said Olivia Troye, a former top aide to Pence, who coordinated the White House coronavirus task force. She recently resigned in protest, saying the administration had placed politics above public health. “There was a lot of pressure on DHS and CDC to push this forward.”
Immigration: Last weekend, ICE installed bold black-and-red billboards along highways across the key swing state of Pennsylvania, depicting the faces of, as ICE put it, “at-large immigration violators who may pose a public safety threat.” One employee said it seemed “suspiciously political that it’s being done in a swing state. The administration almost seems to regard all of DHS as an arm of the Trump campaign these days.”
Border: Construction crews are working non-stop to build the border wall as quickly as possible ahead of the election. The latest figures from U.S. Customs and Border Protection show the rate of construction has nearly doubled since the beginning of the year, accelerated by the government’s ability to cut through national forests, wildlife preserves, and other public lands already under federal control.
In southeastern Arizona, blasting crews have been using dynamite to level the steep sides of Guadalupe Canyon, a rugged span where the cost of the barrier exceeds $41 million per mile. Across the state at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, border agents have forcefully broken up protests by members of the O’odham Nation attempting to block the bulldozers near ancestral burial sites and a fragile desert oasis.
Political interference: Voice Of America White House Bureau Chief Steve Herman is being investigated by political aides at parent agency USAGM for anti-Trump bias. “NPR has learned the appointees compiled an extensive report deemed ‘confidential’ on VOA White House bureau chief Steve Herman, claiming that in his reporting and tweets that Herman had been unfair to Trump and had broken the broadcaster's standards and social media policies.”
  • Separately, six senior officials at USAGM have filed a whistleblower complaint with the State Department’s inspector general and the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, alleging that they were retaliated against for raising concerns about the new political leadership installed earlier this year
Corruption: The consulting firm where the wife of acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf is an executive has been awarded more than $6 million in contracts from the Department of Homeland Security since September 2018.
World: Prominent US human rights lawyers are suing the Trump administration over an executive order they say has gagged them and halted their work pursuing justice on behalf of war crimes victims around the world.
Environment: Exxon Mobil Corp. has been planning to increase annual carbon-dioxide emissions by as much as the output of the entire nation of Greece. Internal projections from one of the world's largest oil producers show an increase in its enormous contribution to global warming.
Environment: A top official at the Interior Department has delayed the release of a study that shows how oil and gas drilling in Alaska could encroach upon the territory of polar bears — which are already struggling for survival as a warming planet melts their habitat.
DHS: Federal law enforcement officials were directed to make public comments sympathetic to Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with fatally shooting two protesters in Kenosha.
Proud Boys: Far-right groups celebrated on social media after President Trump responded to a debate question about white supremacists by saying that the extremist Proud Boys, a male-only group known for its penchant for street violence, should “stand back and stand by.”

2020.10.02 22:35 insidioushatemonger Need someone to talk to

Hi, my names Rob. I have Autism, and i moved to Arizona a year ago from Massachusetts. I didnt have any friends when i got here, but a few months ago i met a girl that wanted to date me. We lived together for a long time but a week ago a legal altercation came up for my girlfriend, and she was arrested. Ive been sleeping in my car since. I know the internet is a place full of creeps and for all anyone knows i could be one too, but im all alone and sometimes days go by without talking to anyone else. Im alone, and i have the world on my mind, and i have noone else to share my words with. I dont need anything but someone to talk to, just to know im not all by myself in this world. I just need a friend to laugh with, but thank you at least just for reading this if anyone noticed this.

2020.10.01 06:02 YouSoVayne Inconsistent BSOD and crashes during gaming (but not all games); is my GPU faulty?

I'll list off everything I've already done and/or checked before elaborating more, as well as my specs. All parts are ~1 year old or newer.
CPU: Ryzen 3600 (EVGA 240mm AIO cooler) Mobo: ASRock X570 Extreme 4 GPU: MSI Tri-Frozr RTX 2070 RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro DDR4 3200 (2x16GB and 2x 8GB, both 3200MHz) PSU: Seasonic Focus 850W 80+ Gold (not even 6 months old, replaced EVGA thinking it was problem) SSD: 5 total: 2 NVME M.2 Sabrent drives, 1 Kingston SSD, 2 ADATA SSD
- Re-installed Windows 10, all updates installed and everything up to date. - Not GPU driver issue. Ensured I was disconnected from internet when re-installing Windows so Windows wouldn't auto install drivers. Clean install of latest driver. DDU with previous two versions of drivers. - Chipset drivers up-to-date. - Newest BIOS version installed - Bought new RAM a month ago thinking it was RAM, removed old RAM but still same issues. - All drivers up-to-date - GPU not OC'd, though I do use Afterburner to keep fans running at 100% due to Arizona summer temps. - Ensured AIO is properly seated (temps never above 75C) - Probably more than I haven't listed yet. - Putting GPU into Debug mode - Vsync/etc off
Issues started after installing my EVGA AIO cooler tbh, but that could just be coincidental as having EVGA Flow Control installed or uninstalled has zero effect.
Prior to purchasing the 2070 in April, I had an RX 580 and had ZERO issues. I gave the RX 580 to a friend, so I can't swap the GPU to confirm if its my issue or not. Every game I played worked (albeit it only ~30fps) but every game I ran played flawlessly, zero BSOD, zero crashes/freezing, nothing.
The biggest issues I've had are attempting to play Red Dead Redemption 2. Actually ran well at first with no issues. Shortly after installing the AIO cooler, RDR2 became completely unstable. Game would crash no matter what I did, if not BSOD the system entirely.
I have zero issues playing Witcher 3, Final Fantasy 15 and Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, so I just chalked it up to being one of the many people that experience issues playing RDR2 in a stable manner.
Then, I tried to play Final Fantasy 14 again. Constant DX11 issues, its unplayable despite the fact it was totally fine when I played it last in June.
Only FF14 and RDR2 are giving me issues consistently, though I've had AS:O crash on me occasionally it works just fine when I restart it.
I'm absolutely tearing my hair out over this guys. I finally worked hard enough to have my dream PC, but it is driving me nuts. Most of the games I can't even play and I've done quite literally everything that I can think of.
Replacing the PSU did nothing, new RAM did nothing, clean Windows/GPU driver installs did nothing, even re-installing the games in question/verifying integrity of files has done nothing.
I am beyond stumped and I am begging for any and all help.
Does anyone have any recommendation as to what I can try?
Or is my GPU just bad? I pretty much only get to play League of Legends on this PC at this point, though AC:O and Witcher 3 work great too so that's why I'm hesitant to blame the GPU. But what else could it possibly be? Especially when my RX 580 in this exact same build gave me zero issues?
Thanks to any and all who spare their time and provide me with a response.

2020.09.30 15:20 nomorehome TRIP REPORT: The Escarpment Trail - The Catskills, NY

Hello, /Ultralight - I'm a longtime lurker on this sub (thanks for the tips, guys) and reading other people's trip reports was a big help planning this hike. So, I figured I'd contribute one of my own! It's always fun living vicariously through other people's adventures, too. Feel free to comment with any questions about this hike / logistics / gear / etc. Also down to recommend parts of this for shorter hikes too. Here goes:
Dates: 9/25–9/27 2020
Weather: Perfect! No rain, Approx 72º/50º. Sunny days 1 & 2, overcast day 3.
Lighterpack: https://lighterpack.com/kzftct
Map: https://www.alltrails.com/explore/map/escarpment-trail-hwy-23-to-north-south-lake-30da227
Distance: Conflicting internet info, but my Alltrails map came in at 22.2 miles and 5545 ft of elevation gain (before water runs and other diversions).
Challenges: Rocky terrain with brutal elevation changes, lack of water sources.
Hikers: nomorehome 39/F, the obsessive hike planner. Loves scenic vistas, maps, and suffering. Passionfruit, 33/F, the enthusiastic partner. Loves mushrooms, cute moss, and pine forests that remind her of Oregon.
Pictures: https://imgur.com/a/ZNryfAe Imgur sucks and totally put these out of order... help?
About the Escarpment Trail: This trail runs from the Rte 23 trailhead/parking lot in Windham to Kaaterskill Falls, crossing 7 3000+ ft peaks along the way, including two Catskill 35ers: Blackhead (3940ft) and Windham High Peak (3524ft). You can clearly hike it in the opposite direction, too, but I’m pretty sure we picked the right way. Many scenic views of the Hudson Valley (to the East) and the Catskill Mountains (to the West) are to be had along the way, making all the hard work worth it. Maybe.
I hatched the plan to hike the whole thing in a long weekend in earnest about a month ago, wanting to time it for good weather and plenty of fall foliage. Though if I’m being honest, it had been on my mind for quite some time – we have a few friends who live close to this trail, making the logistics easy and the terrain semi- familiar from various day hikes over the years. Somehow I convinced Passionfruit this was a good idea. She still thinks it was, but there were moments on trail where neither of us was entirely sure.
DAY 0 (Thursday): We finish work and head up from Brooklyn to our friend’s place, say hello, pet the dog, and crash immediately. Big day tomorrow!
DAY 1 (Friday, 8.5 miles): We’re up around 7:00 to eat breakfast and do some last minute geafood futzing. Our friend follows us as we drop our car at the Laurel House Rd parking lot, and shuttles us back up to Rte 23 in Windham. We wave goodbye and sign the trail register as Windham High Peak (WHP, 3524ft) looms above us. It’s about 11:15 and we’re on the move!
The trek up to WHP is a popular day hike, and we encounter many other hikers along the way. The first two miles aren’t too difficult, so we’re feeling confident and warmed up, though a little sleep deprived and weighted down by a big (3L each) water carry. The third mile is where the rock scrambles start, and by the time we reach the top we’re VERY ready for a break. There’s a spot with a great view of the Blackhead range, so we plop down and eat our sandwiches and apples, the last time we’ll have normal person food for a while. We find a perfect hiking stick which we name the Wizard Staff, and we vow to bring him all the way to Kaaterskill Falls.
The moment we pass the marker for the top of WHP we stop seeing as many people, and the trail becomes more remote and much less worn in. I disturb a small snake's sunbathing session. We feel like the hike has finally really begun! We catch our first views of the beautiful Hudson Valley side of the ridge and are thankful for the solitude and for a bit of downhill and flatter trail - the 3.5 mile grind up WHP was long and hard with full packs. Before we know it, the trail rises again, crossing Burnt Knob and Acra Point, with a bit of a dip between. Somewhere after Acra Point we’re tired, hungry, running out of water, and we cross over into the Type 2 Fun zone, but we have to keep pushing if we want to make camp before dark. The last two hours are a bit of a blur.
We finally roll into the Batavia Kill shelter area around 6:20pm and immediately celebrate with some bourbon, and our spirits are high again. There’s one other camper, a guy who passed us not long ago and is seemingly doing the same trail solo. (Hello if you’re reading this, random guy!) We get the tent set up, grab water, and make some mac and cheese, which is about the best thing either of us have ever tasted. Passionfruit passes out while I take a minute to sit in the clearing around the shelter looking up at a sky full of stars.
DAY 2 (Saturday, 7.5 miles +.8 mile water run): I get up at 7:00 and make horrible instant coffee, which rouses Passionfruit. We pack up quickly, gather about 2L of water each to make it to the next source in 4.5 miles, eat a few handfuls of trail mix, and we’re off. Our first challenge today is climbing up Blackhead (3940 ft), which is +1000ft over .9 miles. It is a really hard yet fun rock scramble - we agree this was both the hardest part of the trail and our favorite. We’re passed by several day hikers who do NOT envy our full packs. That mile took like an hour and a half!
Just after the peak itself, we make it to the best panoramic viewpoint of the whole trail. It’s a perfect day and the whole valley is filled with clouds – it feels almost like being on a plane. We hang out for at least an hour and make breakfast on the rock, taking time to relax and chat with other hikers who periodically pass by.
The descent on the southeast side of Blackhead has plenty of scrambling, but nothing compared to the way up. Eventually we reach the beautiful open flat terrain of Arizona Mountain, and we look back up at Blackhead towering behind us, feeling pretty good about our day so far. The final lookout before the descent to Dutcher’s Notch is stunning, with a view of two lakes - Capra and Colgate. There are some tents set up a little ways off trail right on the ridge, and I make a mental note for future trips. By the time we make it to the notch, our water is just about gone. We drop our packs and scurry down .4 miles to the spring on the east side, which thankfully is running with cold delicious water. We get 3L each for camp and the next 6 or so miles.
The climb up to Stoppel Point is a slog with all that water, and we have a repeat of yesterday’s Fun Wall at around 6.5 miles. I yell out in both triumph and frustration as we reach the top, and start laughing like some kind of maniac. We pass a plane crash (still there from the 80s) and agree this part of the trail feels “ghosty”. The trail thankfully flattens and turns to stunning pines that remind us of Oregon, where Passionfruit is from. We’re calling these sections “reward trail.” The late-day light is perfect. Around 5pm we bump into a father and daughter at a viewpoint who are planning on making it to Batavia Kill over Blackhead that night - i show them some other possible camp spots on my map, fearing they might be underestimating the trail.
Our last hour is fairly moderate and we’re thankful when we reach the clearing on North Mountain around 6pm. Just prior to this, there’s a bushwhack to a hidden campsite that we find with some difficulty, but it’s occupied by our friend the random guy from our last camp (Hi!). He offers for us to join him but we figure we’ll be able to find another spot, so we leave him to his magic ridge view. We head back to the clearing and wander around until we spot some nice flat areas and a fire ring just behind it - a perfect campsite! We get set up just before dark, and enjoy a Knorr side, fritos, and the last of the whiskey back out at the clearing. We head back to camp, make a mini fire and have some tea before bedtime. The wind has started to pick up to a howl, and we’re honestly pretty psyched to be nestled between a bunch of pine trees rather than out on the ridge. We sleep like rocks.
DAY 3 (Sunday, 7ish miles): The home stretch! We’re low on water so we split a cup of tea and eat the rest of our crackers, salami, and cheese and head out. Our packs are light and feel like nothing now! Just after our camp we hit North Point, a wide open rocky area with stunning views of the mountain ridges and North/South lake. It is overcast today, and clouds/fog are nestled into the mountains. The leaves have seemingly gone full Pumpkin Spice over the past two days.
The trail is much easier from here on, with only intermittent fun rock scrambles instead of miles of them at a time, and many views. There are lots of beautiful pine forest sections and open areas. We’re suddenly seeing tons of people again, as this is one of the most popular day hike spots in the area. It’s still a shock to the system when we emerge at North/South lake campground and are totally back in civilization. We grab some water and make coffee and breakfast at a picnic table, and wait for our friends and their dog Sid, who will hike the last few miles with us.
When they arrive, we drop our gear in the car and head out towards Kaaterskill, taking in more views, snapping pictures, and enjoying our victory lap. Sid is thrilled to bound up the rocks and play with other hikers dogs, and between our friends and Good Boy Dog Vibes we find our 45th wind. Before we know it we’re at the falls, which is overrun with people as usual, where we hang out for a bit. We head towards the car, thinking only of the showers, cold beers, and giant plates of food that await us. Passionfruit still has the Wizard Staff – we couldn’t just leave him :)
In Conclusion: This hike was amazing! We loved it SO MUCH and we are never, EVER doing it again. We’re pretty experienced backpackers and it definitely kicked our asses, mostly because of the Water Situation - having to haul lots of it up steep scrambles, and needing to make the miles no matter what. Planning it out, I thought: 8ish miles a day, no problem! But these are Catskills Miles, a whole different breed. Though, like any hike, I kind of already forget the hard parts and just remember how great it was, so you never know. Already planning on hitting all the 35ers on the Blackhead range, so.

2020.09.30 06:48 SnooDucks4666 need help choosing components for first gaming pc!

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Primarily gaming, like Minecraft, Overwatch, etc., and everyday tasks on the internet. Possibly might branch out to streaming on Twitch.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
$1000, but preferably around $800.
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Within the next two weeks.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Everything basically, all components in the PC and case, a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
Arizona, United States. No I don’t have access to a Microcenter.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
I will not be reusing any parts, this is completely from scratch.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Most likely not, since I’m new to this I’d rather not mess around with it.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
I would like to have the Ryzen 5 3600 CPU (unless there’s something that would work better for me), other than that just basics for a gaming pc.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
I would love to have a semi-clear case, possibly with RGB if my pc parts don’t have them, and I’m not set on any specific size.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Yes, I haven’t done research on which type, but if you have a recommendation I’d love to hear it.

2020.09.30 02:15 SuzieQue101 Living in Raleigh Metro, North Carolina

I am a 31 year working professional of Indian ethnicity and recently got a job offer to move to Cary, NC for a job. I would be making more than my last job in Phoenix, Arizona and have a better work profile. I have never lived on the east coast before and want to get a sniff of what is coming my way. I'll share about my background: I'm from India and moved to Phoenix in 2011 for grad school at 22, and continued working in phoenix. Next to the city where I was born, Phoenix has been my longest home. I liked it here, but I have to move since I didn't get a job offer in Phoenix. Beyond the occasional Netflix and NFL, my pastimes are Latin dancing, a bit of boxing sometimes and socializing with my cross-fit community friends sometimes. Moving to a new city, Help me how to tailor my expectations with respect to the following:
  1. Social acceptance: What is it for someone from India to be living in Raleigh Metro?
  2. Dating women: I am single and would want to find some-one, no bias on faith or color. Although being a brown male, phoenix was pretty generous to me in lading dates and affairs.
  3. Bias towards religion: I'm not much into religion. Internet says that North Carolina is in the bible belt. what does that mean?
  4. I'm vegetarian: don't know if I'm up for any surprises.
  5. Living long term and buying a house: I was able to picture myself living long term in phoenix, but unfortunately, I have to depart due to job. Do you'll see Raleigh metro to be a long term place for living your lives?
  6. I have never lived in snow/super cold weather, lived all my life in hot weather. should this bother me?

2020.09.17 12:31 CaptainGordan Throwback Write-Up #20: NB Ridaz - NB RIdaz.com

Artist: NB Ridaz
Album: NB Ridaz.com
Label: Upstairs Records
Released: April 4th, 2004
Background
NB Ridaz, formally known as Nastyboy Klick, are a Hip Hop/R&B group out of Phoenix Arizona. Started by MC Magic, the group became popular locally by selling their CDs at swap meets and making personalized songs of their hits for people. They dropped two albums under the Nastyboy Klick moniker, one of which had one of their most successful singles with “Lost In Love”. Their debut also had the hit “Down For Yours” featuring Roger Troutman, who laid down the chorus with his signature talkbox singing. That sound would become a staple in NB Ridaz’s future hits. With the name officially change to NB Ridaz, they dropped Invasion in 2001, with the hit song “Runaway” In 2004 they dropped NB Ridaz.com, their most successful album to date, spawning hits like “Notice Me” “So Fly” and “Pretty Girl”. The influence Roger Troutman had instilled on the group’s sound is especially prominent here, with the talkbox chorus on “Wishin on a Star” and “Pretty Girl” This album also served to promote their website NBRidaz.com, where they sold merchandise and promoted their personalized songs that fans can put requests for. Although the site is no longer active you are able to see remnants of the site if you use the wayback machine.
Intro
I wanted to preface by saying that the reason I chose this album was because it was huge among Hispanics/Latinos in the US. and in Latin America, but I feel like they are largely unknown to this forum and non-hispanic hip hop listeners. I realized I lived in a bit of a bubble when I overestimated their general popularity on this sub. Living in a large Mexican community, the album and songs like “So Fly” and “Pretty Girl” were inescapable and most girls I went to middle school with including my sister had a crush on MC Magic. I talked about them once in the DD a while back when someone brought up Soulja Boy’s influence by using the internet to blow up and being the supposed first one to really use the internet, and I mentioned how NB Ridaz were using their website to promote personalized songs before Soulja Boy was active, which was then downvoted and followed by a “Who?” response. Anyways after that and testing the waters by posting “Pretty Girl” (which was downvoted), I became aware of that bubble and how the album is not known to the general hip hop audience. To be fair, even when the album was in heavy rotation during release, I noticed it was more popular among girls than dudes, and this sub/website isn’t exactly known for their demographics in the women department.
Review
One thing about this album is that almost every single song has to do with love or intimacy, whether that be the pursuit and wooing of a new partner, cultivating and strengthening of relationships, or lamenting of past relations, probably why it was more popular with girls than dude.
The album kicks off with a forgettable intro followed by U Got Me Hot, which is just a fun song about meeting women at the club and a good track to kick off the album.
Now she was rockin hot jeans
Low-cut baby tee
Hotter than the Fourth of July in A Z
I mean I'm trippin, I couldn't even think
Booty so thick she can hold two drinks
Next is Pretty Girl. Though it wasn’t the leading single on the album, it is probably the most popular song from this album after Notice Me. With a smooth beat reminiscent of 90’s G-Funk, and a chorus and verses backed up by the talkbox singing that they picked up from Roger Troutman, this song has everything that makes it both timeless and a callback to the group’s roots. My favorite part has to be MC Magic’s verse, as he blesses us by alternating his rhymes between English and Spanish seamlessly.
Si tu supieras lo que siento
Cada vez
Que me pongo a pensar en todos los momentos
All the good times we've had, me and you, you and I
Hot summer nights, making love in July
The only girl that didn't give it on the first night
Una mujer incomparable, Imma love her life
After Pretty Girl and, the album transitions to its raunchier side with the lead single So Fly. One small detail I always liked about this song is that each member comes in with a short intro setup before their verse starts, with Zig Zag and MC Magic singing their first lines before rapping, and the DJ Scratching on the beginning of Dos’s verse, I thought it was a pretty neat touch. Zig Zag’s verse is iconic too and etched in my childhood since my sister had this song on loop on her boombox.
I know, I been on the road and away from home
But I been fiendin' for you
Dreaming of you
And what I'm gonna do when I have you alone
You heard the message
On your cellphone, me sayin' "Daddy's home"
I'm about to put it down, got you runnin' around
Half-naked around the house
And this isn't just fast sex
We makin' love until we both climax
Next up Tu Eres, a love ballad sung entirely in Spanish. The lines are a bit cheesy, but since it’s a love ballad it’s expected. If you get serious with a Latina who’s in her late 20’s/early 30’s, you’ll get bonus points if you play this for her.
Despertando una manana pensando en ti
Tus brazos y besos los quiero sentir
Yo te quiero y te amo que haria sin ti?
Un angel que Dios me enviado a mi
On Wishin’, the song revolves around getting hurt by being broken up with by an ex, but still wanting them back. Though it sounds great rapping and beat-wise, and the chorus is nice as hell, it’s my least favorite song on the album on subject matter alone. After that the album gets more upbeat on Playaz. Dope hook, classic beat, and great verses all around where NB Ridaz affiliates 'The Hav Nots' lay down some good verses.
The album then does a 180 with 4-Ever, a song about committing to be with your partner forever. The chorus features singer Angelina combined with the talkbox singing by the NB Ridaz. Though this is one of multiple tracks on the album that feature the talkbox singing chorus, and not even the only one that also features Angelina on the chorus, they still manage to get creative with it. Next up is Notice Me, which was probably the song that got the most radio play in my area and in general. While being the second song that has both Angelina and the talkbox singing chorus, it still manages to sound fresh and change from a theme of commitment to one of simping.
Until I Die is probably my favorite beat on the album, even with dope 90’s West Coast style beats of “Pretty Girl” and “Playaz”. Hearing this makes me wish NB Ridaz experimented more with guitars on their instrumentals. This song is different from the other love songs on the album in that it focuses on growth in partnership, from struggles to sacrifices couples would do for each other. Featured artist and long-time collaborator Big Gemini has a great verse on this as well
I used to say once you're born you're just waiting to die
And every day in between is just a waste of some time
But in time I was convinced that I was far from the truth
Believe it or not I found truth the night I met you
So just know that if there's life after death I'm a wait for you there
To love you forever for real
Sunshine features the same singer (Mary) who did the chorus on U Got Me Hot, and she easily steals the show on this. This song always reminded of a 90’s R&B ballad, and probably the only song on the album where I think Dos had the best verse. .
Not once not twice but your three times a lady
The comfort of your arms got me feeling like your baby
Ill be there for you lets make love in to memories
Your tender touch and your smile always get the best of me
Never let you go or treat you bad ill give you all i have
I belong to you and only you girl i want you bad
Sunshine is followed by the Lil Ridaz skit, just an obnoxious skit of these two little kids breaking into MC Magic’s studio and rapping. Kinda wishing they cut this because it’s not great. The skit leads us into the next song, Bounce If You Wanna, that uses the same beat as the skit. Something weird I found in making this writeup is that not a single lyric website has this song correctly noted, as every site instead has the lyrics to the Lil Ridaz skit. I wanted to highlight Kid Frost’s verse because he was nice and it was iconic to have the first Mexican-American rapper to blow up on an NB Ridaz track. This doesn’t exist anywhere else so I might have mucked a few words
Collar stay popped like champagne bottles, it’s full throttle
That’s the motto, and I spend dough like I won the lotto
Hit trees like there’s no tomorrow
Still spittin hot shit for you to bump in your barrio
Kid Frost, Two fifths of Hennessey
2002 West, go to push and a half ounce of kush
Went triple x, now there’s plenty of bush
Pornstars and strippers get snatched with one look
It’s the Kiddie crook back with them NB Ridaz
O’s and G’s, flippin pounds of keys
On the regular, there’s no competitor
Take it from the editor, back like the predator
Exterminator, Terminator, Violator, Regulator
And I’m way too smooth than them brand new wall of gators
Kid Frost still a boss and I floss on you haters
Fakes and phonies, and all you perpetrators
Southwest Ridaz is up next, and the album is just the group spitting cold hard bars. MC Magic shines as usual and alternate Spanish and English lines like he did on Pretty Girl, except with more hardcore rapping on this track. San Diego’s Mr. Shadow makes an appearance, who was also popular among latino hip hop listeners in the mid 2000’s, but who catered more to the gangster rap crowd.
MC Magic expands on how the group started in the skit Magic’s Custom CDs, where he recounts how his group were able to establish themselves by making personalized CDs for them and advertises how fans can use the website to request their own custom CDs, and as a bonus he even includes an example of a custom song he made using Lost in Love as a basis. The album’s closing track, Guess Who’s Back was always my guilty pleasure as a kid. Borrowing my sister’s CD of this album every now and then, this is the track I always skipped to since at the time I wasn’t feeling like hearing love or heartbreak songs, so this one holds a special place in my heart. With this and Southwest Ridaz, the group made it known they can drop bars when they wanted to and aren’t just a group that coasts on love ballads.
I didn’t mention the Cho and Lo skits, until now, but they are a series of skits on the album that have a radio duo ragging on each other. I used to like their banter when I was in middle school, but I’ve grown out of it since then
Conclusion
As I mentioned before, upon doing my research for my writeup, I found that I overestimated the group’s popularity and my perception of their popularity was warped because of where I and who I grew up with, being from a city on the west coast where there are more Mexicans than any other race. In spite of their popularity among Latinos with songs that have +10 million views on youtube, they never had an album chart on the Billboard 200, and even their most famous songs only peaked close to the bottom of the Billboard 100 charts. In spite of their lack of reach outside the Latino community, this album was huge for those of us who did grow up listening to it.
Questions
For non-Latinos, did you listen to or come across this album while growing up?
In light of NB RIdaz's use of the internet to push their albums as did other artists, do you feel that their practices are overlooked when discussing the history of artists using the internet to sell?
What is your favorite hip hop album by a Latino-American?
Favorite song on NB Ridaz.com?

2020.09.15 07:49 ThrowRABFadmission I posted about my boyfriend admitting to sexual misconduct. Then I posted about how I broke up with him for it. Then the internet lost its mind.

If you have been on reddit in the past couple of days, you may have seen my post. It was never my intention to do the internet equivalent of shooting a flare gun off in a munitions factory, but I suppose people took interest in my problem, and substantially more interest in how I solved it.
TW: rape, sexual assault
I figured that my post was relatively innocent. When my boyfriend admitted to raping his first crush, I did what everyone says should be done: I held him accountable to the best of my capabilities. I got out.
You see, there was no question in the world about whether or not her did it; this was not a case of a potentially false accusation that men bring up reflexively whenever allegations of sexual misconduct are made. It was a man who fully acknowledged what he did. It was a man who (and I don't mean to give him any credit) was being torn up from the inside out years later. He was the perpetrator, and a poor woman who is still out there today was the victim.
Minutes after I posted the resolution of my problem, responses started coming. At first they were unanimously positive, supportive, and gave me a tremendous feeling of hope. Nearly three years after the #MeToo movement began, I thought that maybe, just maybe, the social climate was changing.
Unfortunately, I was just naïve.
For the first hour after my post, I refreshed the page repeatedly, reading from people telling me I did the right thing, providing helpful commentary, sharing their own personal experiences, and discussing the situation civilly. Then it got to the front page. The first abusive comment rolled in from a gentleman telling me I should harm myself. An anomaly, I figured. Just a random misogynist on the internet, a scared little child of a man hiding behind a keyboard. Then came another. And another. And another.
I soon realized the messages weren't going to stop. Then I noticed I had received chat messages from dozens of anonymous senders with language so obscene I hesitate to even repeat it, despite my trigger warning above.
They had so many reasons to be outraged at me for having the audacity of choosing not to date a self-described rapist. That’s what really seemed to set a lot of them off. Apparently, if a man admits what he did and feels sorry for it, we are supposed to deem him irreproachable for his crimes.
I have heard from so many men on the internet and in real life that if there is actual evidence that a man hurt a woman, the first people to hold him accountable will be other men. They talk about how sexual predators are treated in the criminal justice system, where they’ll be ganged up on. That’s not what I saw in my messages. I saw a lot of men fighting in his corner, stating that he was entitled to a relationship with me for being honest.
Strangely enough, it wasn’t the abusive messages that bothered me the most. Even more unsettling were the messages from women. There were so many asking if he was Jeremy from New York, or Thomas from Arizona, or Andy from California (these are fake names to protect their identities). My situation was described with careful detail. My ex’s behavior was a sequence of highly specific predatory actions. But he sounded familiar enough for a dozen or so women to message me asking if he may be someone they know.
Just how many women have been through this? How many women have seen the theft of their undergarments escalate into unwanted touching, and then that escalate into rape?
And how many more will it have to be until we, as a society, say no more?

2020.09.10 01:45 Coalclifff Image from the Past

On the eve of 9/11, I found this old postcard from a colleague, dated from 1985.
On the back is his comment: "Is this symbolic of the sunset of capitalism? I think not!"
Sort of prescient but little did we know then - it was a different world ... no mobile phones, no Internet ... people still wrote lots of postcards!
Where were you on the day? It was 22:15 in Darwin and I had already pulled the pin - so I didn't know of it until the next morning ... quite a shock!
My BIL - a senior US intelligence guy - had to drive solo from Arizona back to Washington DC, basically non-stop - 3,700 km.

2020.09.03 01:08 Robot_ninja_pirate Ten cool looking upcoming VR games

So I see a lot of people who seem to not be aware of some of the upcoming games So I thought I would make a Top ten list like all the click bait sites (number 9 will shock you)
  1. The Walking Dead Onslaught - Been developed by Survios developers of Sprint vector and Raw Data this is a this is a promising looking Single-player Survival game based on the AMC version of the walking dead.
    Note: this is not connected to the Walking dead game that released a few months back from Skydance
  2. Star Wars: Squadrons a Big AAA VR game from EA Single-player and multiplayer you will fly a small squad of 5 X-wings or Tie Fighters Star wars fans rejoice!
  3. Microsoft Flight Simulator While Microsoft Flight Simulator is already released VR Support is on its way expect it by the time of the Reverb G2 release.
  4. Vertigo 2 - an Indie game being developed by Zulubo Productions there original game Vertigo was one of the best early VR titles and it recently had a remaster to bring it back to modern standards, its lead(Sole?) developer Zach Tsiakalis-Brown was 16 when he made the origianl game and must have made an impression on valve as it landed him an internship where he made Knuckles Tech Demos, (and maybe worked in Alyx?)
  5. Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds - being developed by inXile Entertainment who had previously developed The Mage's Tale (and Wasteland 3) it's a team-based multiplayer shooter with PvE element it looks to be quite processing and after mage's tale I trust this to turn out well.
  6. Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond - An oculus exclusive unfortunately it is both single-player and Multiplayer, personally I am more excited for more single player VR shooters. a new trailer was released at gamescom
  7. Sniper Elite VR - Rebelion has been silent on this for a while but a AAA game non the less
  8. Gnomes & Goblins - now with a release date! 23 Sep, 2020 the original demo was released back in 2016 and was very fun it main claim of notoriety is Jon Favreau's involvement in the game.
  9. Sam and Max: This Time It’s Virtual! - recently Announced at Gamescom being developed by Happy Giant not a whole lot is known as of yet but the Sam and max IP is a favourite of mine and I hope this turns out well
  10. LOW-FI - A very ambitious project claiming a Massive open world retro-futuristic cyberpunk, it looks to have great potential but I beleive is being made by a fairly small indie team
Honorable mentions:
Project Wingman - Being developed by Ace Combat fans frustrated by the lack of PC Games, graphics are very promising
After the Fall from the developers of Arizona sunshine
Rhythm of the Universe: IONIA - I dont know much about it past the trailer but the graphics look good, I just wish I could carry a rhythm.
Starship Commander: Arcade - A short arcade style experience the game uses the cloud to power voice based inputs, the game is on the shorter side but can be replayed for different outcomes, potentially a create game to show to people new to VR.
Grapple Tournament - A Multiplayer arena Shooter stylized graphics reminds me of the old Grappling Hook days of Quake.
Video Games Deluxe's game - A Subsidiary studio of Rockstar very early days, not much to say about this yet.
I also maintain a list of even more upcoming games that I think are cool among other VR things here
Edit I appreciate the awards I really do but im just an internet nobody, I would much rather see this money given to a charity or someone in need, thanks
