Dems looking to term limit SCOTUS. I'll take it.

Won't Republican's just then add another 4-6 seats when they get in power again?

Without bullshit like gerrymandering and voter suppression, Republicans can't win. They represent a minority that's shrinking all the time. They know it (hence Trump saying the quiet part out loud once that "if everyone votes, Republicans would never be elected again").

The idea is to stack the court and then make voting easier/more accessible, and so on and oh look, they never get majority power again.

And I'm worried MS will foist another New Vegas on us since they own Obsidian too...

This would be the best news all year.

A lot of people feel that way. And Obsidian was pretty coy about it when asked directly.

I'm just... not a fan. NV was my least favorite Fallout, and Obsidian games generally fall flat for me. Most recently The Outer Worlds, which was forgettable and got stale before I could finish it.

Except Grounded. I'm having a lot of fun with that, but I think that's just a small segregated part of Obsidian working on it.

Starfield looks like a DOOM game.  Lately those have been super twitchy for me.  I should probably give it another try.

Wut? AFAIK, we haven't even seen anything for Starfield yet. Where are you seeing a DOOM-like to it? It's Elder Scrolls in Space...

Are you sure you're thinking of the right game?

I hate this news. I'm worried what it means for Starfield, TES6, and ESO. And I'm worried MS will foist another New Vegas on us since they own Obsidian too...

Collins is useless and as trustworthy as Lucy holding a football for Charlie Brown.


Can't wait to vote her out of office... >.>

No guarantee McConnell would have seated her replacement, had she retired then. Murkowski and Collins have both said no vote before the election, though the gop can afford up to 3 defections, so unless two more join them it doesn’t matter. And then there’s the lame duck period.

Supposedly Chuck Grassley has also said no vote, but I can't find any confirmation. He did say that back in July, but July was 50 years ago.

And if they wait for the lame duck, McSally could be out of the equation. Since she's a replacement, if she loses (which she will), Mark Kelly gets seated immediately, as I understand it.

It's the only play left. Win the presidency, take the senate, and pack the fucking court.

And while we're at it, statehood for DC and PR.

I love Rogue 1.  But New Hope - Empire Strikes Back > Rogue 1 >>>>>>>> the rest.

The original and Empire will forever hold the top spot.  I still remember the utter joy of coming out of the theater having just watched the original.  I was 8 years old, the perfect age for it.  It forever warped my brain.

Yeah, I'll grant you that, for pure nostalgia love, they are tops. I saw both in the theaters, New Hope back to back (my grandmother took me and we stayed through the credits and watched it again - I have no idea how. I was like 5 years old).

But watching them all now? The first one especially doesn't hold up as well. Still fun. Just... not the same. Rogue One just feels more epic, more in touch with the whole Star Wars universe, and had a better droid sidekick. lol
