The Russians are offering money to Afghanis to have them travel to America and kill people? That does seem over the line.
It was to kill coalition soldiers in Afghanistan, not to go to the US.
I think I see the main problem here, and Russian bounties aren't it.

Re: The Sheriff Joe Arpaio Memorial Prison Reform Thread

I can't find much information about Australia, but what I have found suggests something similar. From 1860—the earliest year for which data is available—to 1919, Australia’s incarceration rate fell from 650 in 100,000 to 78 in 100,000, after the country ceased being a collection of British penal co...

Re: Guns and Whatnot.

I ran across this.... uh, pistol, recently . Apparently that's not a stock, but an arm brace. I've fired 10mm before and found it a bit much, but in something like this, it could be much more manageable, and 30 round magazines are always fun. I guess the current ATF attitude is that the Banshee and ...

I'm not even going to google this. I'm still pretty angry at the "tell all" book from Bolton. What a cock. That's the thing you're angry at Bolton for? It's the coverage of his book like he was a lone hero fighting for America inside the corruption that is the White House. That annoys me in a way I...

Re: Music for the Masses

Speaking of space rock I highly recommend this album. It's definitely in the running for album of the year for me. The whole thing is great and each song manages to be it's own thing while still maintaining a unified theme. (It has a long intro for the first song but stick with it. It's all good.) ...

In a reliably Team Red state, it looks like McSally is going to manage to lose both Senate seats to Team Blue. Quite the accomplishment.

heist movie parody inception was very enjoyable.

"rick is an emotionally cruel toddler" kind of sums up the series theme tho
Different strokes, etc. I couldn't stand either the heist inception episode or the story train episode.

I haven't seen last night's episode of Rick and Morty yet, but 3/4 of the episodes of this half of the season were weak. The Vat of Acid episode was great, though.
