chris paul get injured when i pick him for fantasy

You guys could at least give this dying forum the respect it deserves and take the random basketball comments to Lake of Rage. Or another thread.
People who avidly hate Trump will scream to the high heavens that this is a racial problem ("Muslim ban") while people who support Trump will tell you this is a step towards reducing the chance of terrorist acts on the US.
I'm largely of Oak's opinion on how to handle things like the Manchester bombing - just go about your lives and pay dues to the departed - but there comes a point where you do have to take actions to shore up and reduce the chances of shit like that happening in your country. You don't hear news of a serial killer being loose in your neighborhood and leave your doors and windows open.
I'm too ignorant and haven't done enough research on this to have an informed opinion, but that's what I think right now anyway.
The proposed travel ban remains ridiculous. It's still proposing to ban people with nationalities that have killed a grand total of zero people ever in terrorist incidents in the US, just with some additional measures.
It sounds like Trump wants to burn bridges with countries that the US already have an uneasy relationship with. That doesn't sound like a great idea.
Today's post is linked from Sunnyskyz.com because hey, we need a happy story to finish a sunny month.
Question for June 30th, 2017: What are your thoughts about this group of strangers who pitched in and bought a car for someone else?
Why couldn't they buy me a car?
That's actually a really sweet thing they all did. A shame that there's no one in the local area here who would be willing to do that for another person, because they're either broke as fuck and unable to contribute, or so rich that they don't give a fuck about anyone else.
Question for July 1st, 2017: What are your thoughts on Fyre Festival co-founder Billy McFarland being arrested and charged with fraud?
EDIT: Oak's a party pooper, and to be fair there's not much more to say on this. People got fucked hard.
also I'm breaking the chain cos this shit is kinda against the rules
Question for July 2nd, 2017: What do you think about penguins?
Penguins are cool. They are also skilled secret agents according to the Madagascar movies.
My favourite animal
Since I'm not dead yet and neither is PO,
I still have hard time believing this creature is real, not some meme or cartoon. Even more surprising is nature decided to put it somewhere humans safe so that humans couldn't fuck'em up.
Moreover, Emperor Penguin dads are probably the most dedicated parent in existence.
Question for July 3rd, 2017: What are your thoughts about this police officer adopting this child?
(hint, read the story)
im a psychic and to answer your future qotd for today
you saw that and thought about changing the question
I plan on getting shitfaced bc America is a shitty country morally and politically but it's also a very cool at times
2nd - Penguins look cool. There's something fishy about them, though.
3rd - Guy adopts kid that needed adopting. It's a noble thing to do. Him being the cop that saved him doesn't make it any better or worse.
I wasn't expecting that last part. It's sad & heartbreaking hearing about how they found him. But hearing that this noble police officer and his wife adopted him and while going through the adoption process heard that johns biological mom gave birth to a baby girl in jail and adopted the young baby girl as well is great & wonderful.
Also, penguins are cute. Never seen one in person but they are cute.
Question for July 4th, 2017: What are your thoughts on the United States of America?
A wide collection of different human beings let down by an idiotic minority of people. Claims to love freedom, yet someone tries to oppress the freedoms of various people, including its own citizens. Makes claims to be the best country in the world, but only leads in specific categories that do not necessarily reflect well on itself.
So basically, it's like almost every other country in the world.
On a slightly more serious note I think the fact that we haven't sparked another world war yet (and hopefully won't ever) means we're doing pretty decently.
better than venezuela
It's alright I guess...
I just hate that where I live, fireworks are illegal and yet I see the red rockets red glare, and hear bombs bursting in air
Question for July 5th, 2017: What are your thoughts on Pocket Mortys having multiplayer now?
Good for them.
Question for July 6th, 2017: What are your thoughts on France making this major move to cut down on fuel emissions?
Damn our president looks cool
nice idea, hope it actually happens, cos climate change is probably gonna kill us all eventually
"Other targets set in the French environmental plan include ending coal power plants by 2022, reducing nuclear power to 50% of total output by 2025,"
One of these things is not like the others
Question for July 7th, 2017: What are your thoughts on Trey Parker and Matt Stone steering South Park away from Trump and back to form?
I dont actually follow south park anymore but i think its pretty cool to see the creators not only thinking about the profit but actually caring about their show
haven't really watched south park since I saw the movie, so please refer to the gif I posted above
South Park is still aids for me anyways, but good for them!
I wish SNL would make the same move
I do like that they recognize a target too low, now if only they would have done that for the last 20 years
