Reluctant decision: Who is a little more trustworthy?
This is not an easy "decision". . . . .
Which of the two congressional Republican leaders do you trust ... a little more? (I know so many would prefer to say "neither of them!")
• John Boehner, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, from the state of Ohio
• Mitch McConnell, Minority Leader of the U.S. Senate, from the state of Kentucky
Tough decision, but I'm going with John Boehner. I think he knows deep down the right thing to do is compromise, but since the wackos in his caucus are threatening him and with Cantor breathing down his neck he is in a difficult position.
I look at Mitch McConnell and all I see is the face of all those Dixiecrats who shut down their schools rather than let black people attend. There is something evil about him. I see him and see the devil.
Christ that's like being forced to choose your own death by fire or acid.
You guys just like Mitch better because he's e*ffeminate.
Equally treacherous cunts. Boehner is held hostage and Mitch is among the most evil people to ever populate the senate. His vow to make Obama a one term president at the expense of this country is enough to qualify this motherfucker for a life in hell.
I don't want to get too worked up though. Hoping he drops dead of a heart attack soon.
Mitch McConnel's public declaration that the most important job they have as elected public servants was to hurt Obama...and not y'know try to help the country puts him over the top.
R2 nailed it.
Boners give it to you straight, whereas total assholes are full of shit.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
