Not too bad, kinda tired. I played a little Smash today. My Palutena GSP is doing pretty good, but geez, it increases so slowly when you're in the 4.7 million range.>>42092546
Yeah, it doesn't have to be the OP. Any post in a thread that contains a dollar sign inside of greentext will break the entire thread for Flutter.>>42092548
The first night was Klobuchar, Delaney, Warren, Booker, Gabbard, Castro, Beto, De Blasio, Inslee, and Ryan.
It was really disappointing, not gonna lie. I know these debates are meant to be dumbed down and just give general ideas of where the candidates stand, but holy shit, what a dismaying display of sophistry and style over substance. Very little concrete policy was so much as mentioned, a ton of questions were dodged, and everyone seemed a lot more concerned with "looking" like they're the people's champion than actually having a plan.
Whenever someone got asked a basic question about how they would resolve [relevant issue of our political climate], rather than just give a straight answer, 9 times out of 10 they would derail into philosophical navel gazing and flowery language about how America should serve the common person, not only the affluent. I agree, but what are you going to actually do about it? Do you have any real ideas? Or are you just going to spend your 30 seconds jerking yourself off about how woke you are by reciting the same fauxgressive "grand vision" lines all the other candidates used?
There were a few exceptions here and there of people describing what their actual plans are, but it took a ton of prodding from the moderators, and overall it felt like a waste of 90 minutes. I know this is nothing new and the debates have always been more about grandstanding than anything else, but it really diminishes my faith in our democracy that this is where the bar is for the people who run our country.
