Balder Regional Message Board
Trump doesn't even have to be a sell-out; he's a con artist. The man makes ordinary establishment politicians look like paragons of honesty and dutifulness, and before this election I would've sworn that was an impossible feat.
Can you give us an example of how he "man makes ordinary establishment politicians look like paragons of honesty and dutifulness" and some examples of who he conned and how he conned them?
Note for Easter-Egg hunters:
It's December now, so now is the time to try and get the secret Christmas issue (as it's only attainable this month).
I'm not entirely sure on the conditions to get it, only you have to put something "Christmas-themed" in one of the changeable name options for your nations, e.g. change leader to "Nicholas Santa", changing national animal to "reindeer", change currency to "Christmas presents", stuff like that (but I can't say for certain what will, and wont work).
If you do get the Christmas issue, please let me know what Christmassy names you used.
I was excused from jury duty for being legally blind! I'm not entirely sure how to feel about this. On the one hand, I've never had jury duty before and would kind of like to try it. On the other, I probably would have been excused during the jury selection process anyway, because I think too much, so one of the lawyers would have used one of their free passes to get rid of me. No one likes a juror who actually has a brain.
What number trial member were you and how many jury members were going to be picked.
My mother was number 13 of a 6 man trial. There was no way that she could have been picked.
I have no idea. The date for jury selection is coming up on the 7th, but they sent me a letter excusing me based on my initial answers to the little "survey" thing that lets you know you've been called.
Perhaps they don't give you the number until you get to the court.
I'd assume that's how it goes, yeah. Again, since I've never gone before, I have no idea. And the way they inform you may even change depending on the municipality.
I don't like the term "legally blind", I mean, are there people out there who are illegally blind?
Also not a fan of the current legal system, because neither side care about the truth, only about winning, and sometimes having an expensive lawyer can matter more than the truth (so it's basically an unfair system that favours the rich).
And having a jury of non-trained people decide the outcome just means that the outcome can be determined by emotional manipulation, misleading evidence, etc. (so again, can be determined by how good the lawyer is at playing the jury, than on the facts).
Oh, and all the stupid frivolous lawsuits and stuff, hate that too.
