Kaiserreich mod for Hearts of Iron IV. The Second American Civil War breaks out at some point due to the rise of Syndicalism and other such, splits the nation, and causes a total takeover of the country by one group.

In my playthroughs, it’s almost always the Syndicalists as the Pacific States get screwed by Mexico because they’re National-Socialist/Fascist.

Follow up to this story…

Korea will march as one contingent under a Unification Flag.

In the meantime:

which corresponds to this view:


#3052

I don’t know about that, SK and NK have had problems before, since the korean war i think but yet:

The two countries have marched under the flag before, in rare shows of unity, first at the 1991 World Table Tennis Championships, and at a number of sporting events since. It was most recently used at the 2006 Winter Games in Turin, Italy.

So i think it is simply because Kim Jong-Un like sports, did you know the North Korea national football team have a norwegian coach? That’s right Jørn Andersen is their coach :smiley::

and we all knows Kim Jong-Un invites Dennis Rodman because he is a fan of basketball as well.

Gandhi’s Nukes…


#3054

Early this year, word went around that someone was killing gay men in Toronto. They arrested the guy today.


#3055

I find the whole article to be kinda yellow press. I mean, if you are a serial killer you have to be suspected and charged of three or more murders. “Two and likely more” does not fit the criteria. He is not being charged for “likely more”.

I find that important use of the words is vital to communication. I certainly don’t want the media making this guy famous over murder which are on top of all publicited, and inaccurately.


#3056

The FBI definition changed to two murders recently. Besides that, I’d be surprised if they can’t link him to additional killings through the known disappearances.


#3057

Article from a more respectable source. The Sun sucks.


#3058

A very apt way to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of Trump’s Presidency. The entire Government shutting down.

I also read that this is the first time in history that there has been a Government shutdown when a single party has controlled the Presidency, the House and the Senate.

Who comes up with this stuff?


#3062

Probably the same kind of person who thinks eating laundry detergent pods is a good idea.


#3063

Isn’t all of these grounds for getting your firearms licence revoked?
I recall also one of the points in a firearms licence says that leaving your home with a Loaded Gun is enough to register as intent to shoot?


#3064

That would be stupid. What the point in having a gun for protection if you have to load it first when someone tries to mug you? Guns have a safety function, which allows you to carry a loaded weapon without having to worry about accidentally shooting yourself or someone else.


#3065

What I recall is a phrase that says something like: “In the event that you have discharged your weapon into another person causing injury or death, any finding that recounts the weapon was loaded when you left your home can be construed as intent.”.

So i think it was something like IF you injured someone with your weapon, and it recounts that you left the home with it already loaded then that will count in findings against you unless other conditions apply (eg: Self-Defence, etc.).

N.B.: I might be remembering a specific Vehicle Carry rule… now that I think about it, since the context was listed under Traffic situations.

This example lists the violation as “Carrying a Loaded Firearm in a Public Way”:

2:20 to 2:36

basically summarizes the whole trend.

Translation
"Don’t play with guns that’s how people get shot-stop being silly for the camera."

But most of these looks like stunts for the camera anyway. Like ol girl really sleeps ontop of a loaded shot gun like that?

I groaned each time one of them struggled to get the gun out the pocket


#3067

Speaking of no lacking.


#3068

Are you referring to a handgun carry permit? There is no permit to purchase or own a firearm in Tennessee, which is where this incident occurred.

Not all firearms are alike in this regard, and no mechanical safety device, whether manual or passive, is a substitute for observance of gun safety rules.

That’s Massachusetts, which has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country. In Vermont and New Hampshire, which border Massachusetts to the north, carrying a concealed handgun is legal without a permit. In Tennessee, it’s legal to carry a loaded handgun in your vehicle without a permit (either on your person or elsewhere).

The Bruce McArthur story got worse.
