  1. For your information, South Bend has three Chipotles.
  2. Spot on, for all their talk about "freedom," we know they only mean it for select individuals—not all men and women.
  3. In the eyes of cultists like @eastvillagedon, only one group should get their speech protected. It's amazing how quick he and other party members were so willingly able to throwout the "snowflake" label, yet can't take it when speech is thrown back at them. Meanwhile, his side has actually undertaken real violence:
  4. They probably have a shred of integrity and don't engage in stunts like the one "gun girl" pulled. I don't think you understand what a fascist is. If you did, you'd probably be alarmed by all the moves the Trump admin has performed which fall right in line with authoritarianism. But for some reason, you ignore those and don't discuss them then run here to play the victim. It's amusing that half of the conspiracy crap your lot claimed Obama would do actually gets done by Trump and not a peep. We all know what the real reason is, though. What "gun girl" pulls off is pure trolling and looking for attention. Not unlike your posts. You want to talk about political harassment and violence? Maybe you need a reminder of what the "Gun girl" aligned Alt-right did: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlottesville_car_attack Or this one: https://www.cnn.com/2017/08/27/us/man-arrested-gun-charlottesville-rally/index.html
  5. This is rich coming from the guy who repeatedly ignores the conversation and tries to play the victim, promoted birther-ism, and is now linking to a holocaust denying "outlet."
  6. To be fair, I don't think that's what they're trying to accomplish. Rather, it seems like it's a revenue opportunity to help offset the RTC's operating costs. I.E. They have the space... may as well offer downtown parking spots whether those people use the bus or not.
  7. Yes, the suburban park and rides are free. I would imagine this would not be, though, as it's not similar to a suburban park & ride. If anything, it's comparable to/is a Downtown parking garage. A good idea would be making the circulator/parking shuttle included with paid parking. Streetcar too.
  8. I'm curious how they intend to physically structure the parking, but this is probably a great revenue idea for them. If they market Metro*Plus as an easy to way to get between uptown/downtown—could be really cool.
  9. You mean a newspaper with trained, educated journalists? You'd do well to recall two WaPo employees who investigated this. I know you're old enough to remember it.
  10. lol, get real https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/04/09/report-washington-examiner-was-used-undermine-dhs-boss-kirstjen-nielsen/
  11. Care to discuss the numerous discussions at hand or any of the other questions addressed to you across the pages? Or are you just gonna drop Stephen Miller fed headlines and hope Ram shows up?
  12. EVD, right on time with the off-topic propaganda drop!
  13. You answered your own question. Yes, testimony... which is exactly what that quoted tweet references, not removal. NPR, and other outlets, have made this quite clear. They're specifically covering who may cross for testimony, because that is where the current events are at this point in time. Ah, there we go. But "muh media" and "muh Bidens." Just like with the GOP constantly bringing up Obama yesterday... he's not on trial. Whether you like/liked him or not, that's not the matter at hand. And even still, the GOP held significant power both when Obama was president, Biden was VP, Hillary was Secretary of State, etc. Yet, they did... nothing? Hell, how many times have we heard rants about "muh Benghazi!" Yet, they never went after their sworn enemy, Hillary Clinton?
  14. I don't like to bog down this thread with linked tweets, but if there's any reporter who's been doing an A+ job throughout all of this, it's Mary Louise Kelly. With some interesting news coming this afternoon:
  15. Agreed on the Central Parkway alignment. If you're in the CBD and heading towards all the stuff on Main St, taking the streetcar is a great option. But if you're heading back... you have to go way out of your way to catch a Southbound car. Then you have to hope that car is going to show up in a reasonable amount of time.
  16. I mean—I get it (and you know I respect you), but quite simply that's not the way the world is going. It's not an obsession with "apps" so much as it's convenience. I'd rather buy 10 day passes and have them ready at will without having to carry tickets, cards, or cash. This is the way every other system works. The issue is that the app, while it works, isn't great or easy to understand/use. Especially if you're downloading it for the first time and have arrived at a station where ticket machine isn't working. Speaking of which... another reason why cash is moot in this case: our ticket vending machines are awful, always have been, and apparently will continue to be. Ok, boomer. This is my favorite post.
  17. Tried using the Streetcar on New Year's Eve. Per a days old tweet, it was going to stop running at "normal time" (which when you dig through the City's awful website, you can find out that the normal time for a weekday is midnight). So it allegedly stopped running at Midnight. On New Year's Eve. We skipped some plans since we couldn't rely on it, had no response from their Twitter account, and an Uber was going to be too ridiculously priced (nor could we get a decent bus route at the time we were going to need). Found out the next day that apparently the Streetcar was still taking on passengers after midnight. It's New Year's Eve for crying out loud. Why not have the thing run and have signage at every stop? Also, the integration with the Transit app. While it's nice to have ever service in one app: the payment process is slow and cumbersome. It was way easier to store your CC info and quickly buy tickets on the previous app. Transit does offer real-time tracking, but it's still inconsistent and the signs at stations are still bad. And the payment machines are still terrible. Look, we all knew the city was going to poorly manage this thing after the "divorce," but the streetcar has never been properly managed since its opening by any oversight group. Is anyone going to do something soon? It's like a bad joke to have seen this opportunity wasted for what will be four years in September while Kansas City and all these other cities have success. Cincinnati is so milquetoast these days.
  18. Thank you for that post. Agreed with every sentence.
  19. If the US “runs it like the 1990 Gulf War,” they’d be pushing ill-equipped Iranian forces with poorly maintained Soviet Technology out of a neighboring country and back to their border (until Don Jr. goes for round 2). So yeah, this is a poor take. The situations are not at all similar aside from the fact that both Iran and Iraq happen to be in the Middle East. The current military forces of Iran, while not equipped on the scale of the US Military, are far better trained and armed than the Iraqi Army of 1990 or 2003. A prolonged ground conflict is not going to be pretty, nor would it be something that could be “run” like Gulf War 1. Not to mention, then comes the “nation building.” And on top of that, the American military is being managed by a Republican administration that’s proven to have far more missteps than the last Republican administration that picked a Mideast fight. So maybe let’s take a step back on the overly simple “it will be over quickly” takes. That’s the kind of thinking that politicians sold people on the last time. Don’t let that dust covering your “Mission Accomplished” banner cloud your vision from the thousands of dead American soldiers who died in the last Iraq War. Sure glad we got them WMDs, tho!
  20. Did you watch the video, @eastvillagedon? You might want to take Gervais' advice. Especially regarding that line involving Thunberg.
  21. Have you ever tried linking to something credible?
  22. And that, by far, is the biggest issue. No one's arguing that Soleimani was a saint or even that he wasn't an enemy combatant. The issue is that the current administration has been found over and over again to be less the credible, forthright, and even effective. Imagine our resident boomer's minds exploding if HIllary or Obama had ordered this strike. Remember, loose birther conspiracies are ok in their minds and retweets by their favorite reality star are pure facts.
  23. Well said. Everyone thinks that Obama inherited two middle eastern wars started by a Republican administration, they forget that Obama lied about weapons of mass destruction and put us in Iraq!
  24. If this isn't the biggest case of projection, I don't know what is.
