    Russian figure skating news & updates in 2022

    I think part of it is cultural. When I was in Russia (a loooong time ago, 2001) Russian doctors were seen as on a level as teachers since it was also a government-funded job that didn't pay well. If you were wealthy/high-class you could go to a specialist in Europe. Even Putin hasn't seemed to...

    Insurrectionists and subversives: Trump and his supporters (Thread for all things Trump)

    I'm definitely not a fascist and I'm not particularly woke either. It would not be beneficial for me to even try to get into Civil Rights activism publicly, at least where I live. Of course if I say "racism is bad" to certain people, the automatic reply would be "You're wooooooooke." I mean, I...

    It started out among black activists, ie they are "awake" to the issues of their community and are working to change things. It got coopted by Internet neckbeards who were mad for things like black people being cast in Star Wars, then metastasized into white supremacists in the media and in the...

    My hometown is roughly 50/50 Protestant/Catholic and most of my Catholic friends I grew up with had no idea we (Baptists) were taught that Catholics were basically pagans. I also admit that for an amount of time that is embarassingly overdue, I thought that Michael Dukakis was an "avowed...

    I hope we don't get anywhere close to this, but people who don't check all of those boxes but like their tax cuts and vote accordingly, they really don't realize the extent of this whole Evangelical Christofascist state thing. Their ultimate aim is to bring about the apocalypse so that Jesus...

    I said that I was pessimistic and "at most" would be house arrest. So no, it's not really a punishment but can you actually imagine that dude being perp-walked around in a jumpsuit? The Feds usually don't go after criminal trials unless they're sure they win - they've got like a 92% conviction...

    I doubt he'll actually go anywhere near a prison. I don't know how one would go about even seating a jury for a former President, but even if he was convicted of something it's not like he would be placed in gen pop. He does have a Secret Service detail and they would essentially have to be in...

    Yeah, I heard it was something like a very elaborate comb-over.

    That was my first thought too. If the coach is under the impression that they're retiring, but the skaters say no, I took that to mean that they left him but didn't leave competitive skating.

    They're not woke. So you can just ignore the other stuff.

    So with all the claims of Trump declassifying documents before they were taken, did anyone else get the mental image of Trump declaring something declassified the same way that Michael Scott declared bankruptcy? https://youtu.be/C-m3RtoguAQ?t=65

    Hillary and Hunter were never the President of the USA, that in itself makes things worse for Trump. And nothing they're accused of is as serious as this - - I'm not counting the QAnon stuff because whoever thinks that Trump is the whitelighter personally chosen by Jesus to rid the elites of...
