I’d also like to remind Darth Id that some of us have gone to that thread for support when we legitimately need it, like when I lost my father.

You can remind him, but trust me, he does not give a shit.

Former House Speaker John Boehner gave President Donald Trump’s young presidency low marks at an event Wednesday, saying that other than getting the House to pass a health care bill, “everything else he’s done has been a complete disaster.”

“He’s still learning how to be president,” Boehner said during an appearance as the keynote speaker for the KPMG Global Energy Conference, according to a recap from RigZone.com.

Boehner also said that his hopes for tax reform had dimmed, calling the preliminary discussions that are going on “just a bunch of happy talk.”

The health care bill may end up being the most disastrous of all!

I knew he was trolling—but I also knew I’d be shouted down if I pointed out the obvious in the “emo-supp” thread, where the mentality of victimhood is nurtured and privileged to run free and unencumbered of any scrutiny or accountability.

Ah, I didn’t think anyone would make a post as pointless and mean-spirited as Alderaan did, but I was wrong.

So since I have no idea what the fuck is going on, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say the list of victims came out and there’s nobody matching what he’s said about his daughter?

Correct.

People are really ****ing gullible and there are some real pieces of work on this board.

That is all.

We may have been played for suckers, but better to be a compassionate sucker than a cynical bitter person.

Did I miss something?

A lot of us had a lot of questions that were answered once the final victims names and ages were released, but Alderaan was the only one to be an asshole about it.

I think everyone here has probably spent more money on Star Wars than is necessary over time regardless of format. And we would do it again if they let us.

We ❤️ Star Wars and give it all the moneys.

And this…

As far as this community is concerned, you should own the official retail release of a fan project’s source material if it is possible to do so. Content producers deserve to be compensated, so if you don’t own the retail release (if available), you have no business possessing a fan project. This applies equally to fan edits, custom DVDs and restoration projects.

If a project is sourced from an HDTV broadcast, and that movie has subsequently been made available for purchase on Blu-ray Disc, you are expected to own the BD before obtaining the fan project.

The drip-drip-drip of Russia info continues.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/24/us/politics/russia-trump-manafort-flynn.html

American spies collected information last summer revealing that senior Russian intelligence and political officials were discussing how to exert influence over Donald J. Trump through his advisers, according to three current and former American officials familiar with the intelligence.

The conversations focused on Paul Manafort, the Trump campaign chairman at the time, and Michael T. Flynn, a retired general who was advising Mr. Trump, the officials said. Both men had indirect ties to Russian officials, who appeared confident that each could be used to help shape Mr. Trump’s opinions on Russia.

Some Russians boasted about how well they knew Mr. Flynn. Others discussed leveraging their ties to Viktor F. Yanukovych, the deposed president of Ukraine living in exile in Russia, who at one time had worked closely with Mr. Manafort.
