Question on moves
Unit A attacks an enemy unit. At the same time units B and C support HOLD unit A.
What is the defensive strength of unit A? Is it 2 beceuse it is supported by 2, or is the support wasted because unit A is attacking rather than holding?

Hillary Clinton found guilty on 237 charges
Treason, Money Laundering through her foundation, illegally checking her facebook, illegally deleting an email from a south african prince who left her millions in his will, Regecide, criminal neglect, intent to have intent, causing rising sea levels, orchestrating the murder of rival DNC members, 9/11, and a whole host of other charges ranging from multi-accounting to impersonating Jesus. Lock her up. So glad this criminal investigation paid off.

But you surprise me. We have a poem saying (moreless, excuse my English): For how a man speaks/ you will know where he met the Sun/ if he speaks good about England, he' English/ if he speaks bad about Prussia, he's French/ and if he speaks bad about Spain/ if he speaks bad about Spain, he's Spanish.

Even the Democrats are realizing that progressives are backwards

Back to the Center, Democrats

Bigger government handouts won’t win working-class voters back. This is the fallacy of the left, believing that voters just need to be shown how much they are getting in government benefits. In reality, these voters see themselves as being penalized for maintaining the basic values of hard work, religion and family.

@Capt Brad

Its not so much about what the government gives to them though I am sure some in the progressive side would argue it but not all of them. Just like one could argue there is a significant amount of republicans that are for stacking things for massive corporations and the wealthy as we see with the most recent attempt at tax cuts.

The fight between progressives and democrats is not so much about handouts but to rebalance those that are part of the working class. Fight for a higher minimum wage so that those do work don't also have to seek out food stamps and other government benefits. I know of quite a few that push 40-60 hours and still qualify for government assistance which is pretty sad to say the least.

The other major fight is corruption vs taking money out of politics. The problem is this fight is harder than the first as both parties are bought quite a bit. Progressives did pretty well overall this election in that Bernie with next to no name recognition almost defeated someone that has been known for a very long time, backed by a massive super PAC and the DNC still almost lost in the primary.

CNN found the Reddit user who created the WWE wrestling meme
http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/04/politics/kfile-reddit-user-trump-tweet/index.html
This is just sad. A news organization so triggered by a meme that they would go after the poor guy and threaten to release identity to get an apology and is still threatening to release his identity. You can argue if it was appropriate that Trump tweeted this but this is not ok. This is freedom of speech and he might get severely punished for it. Apparently CNN never understood that "1984" is fiction.

Is the voter fraud investigation a distraction?
Is it Republican Data mining? Beating a dead horse? Or all of the above. It feels like its designed to help Republicans gain shitloads of unsolicited free information about voters. Why else would they need such data? Why not trust the states - many of which are Red states to uphold fair elections.
