>Who's Grogar again?
If you were paying attention to any of the threads - nevermind the episodes themselves - you’d know that he was introduced as the main villain of this season
>Is it some earlier-gen character
Yes. Smart cookie. He is from Generation 1.
>they're bringing back for muh nostalgia
Sigh
No. First off, that doesn’t make any sense because unlike people who watch Star Wars or Star Trek, virtually no one in the target audience (or actual audience) has watched the 1980s series and would be Nostalgic about it, because virtually no one who watches the show is in their 40s. This show targets children under the age of 10, who can be 100% expected to have never watched the older series, and the “briny” audience is mostly in its 20s.
Second, this is not bringing back a character for “muh nostalgia” because each my little pony series exists in a separate continuity, and so it’s not really “the same character” in the way that bringing Lando back in Star Wars episode IX is bringing back an old character for “muh nostalgia”
So what the hell is wrong with the show acknowledging that it is not the first television series of my little pony? It’s nice to have nods to the mythology. In any event, the writers aren’t really tied to however the character was portrayed in the older series, and continuity nods don’t hurt anything. Look at how The Smooze is depicted in “make new friends but keep Discord,” versus Generation 1.
>. I miss when the villains were school bullies, giant dragons existing in the wrong places, and overhyped shit parties
Sigh
Every single season has had a fight against strong, world threatening villains, as either an opening two-parter, a closing two-parter, or both. Some have had the villains as an arc. Your reference to season 1 episodes completely overlooks the fact that the very first two episodes of the series, season 1 episodes 1 and 2, feature - you guessed it! - an ancient evil that the heroes defeated through friendship lasers. And Nightmare Moon is also in part a mythology nod. Her intent, to bring about eternal night, is a reference to Tirek, the villain of the first ever my little pony special, “Rescue at Midnight Castle.” Hell, her line “the night, shalPost too long.

Episode synopsis
Twilight realizes she never returned a book to the Canterlot Library, and besides incurring the disgrace of a super-overdue book and huge fees, she may have caused her favorite librarian to lose her job.

Yeah, you are right I also thought the premise sounded familiar.

But honestly, I kinda like that they try to do something more mundane with this character now since I think these new writers suck at worldbuilding, for the most part with the excpetion of the kirins. I don't like the fact that the elements of harmony has gone from being this supernatural almost like religion of the ponies to being just one of Star Swirl's spells. It is just like the midiclorians in Star Wars.

But the Moondancer episode was boring and cringeworthy. They turned what should have been a fun-loving elegant and mischevious beautiful character into a complete uncultured fashionless and bitterly rude idiot.
Moondancer was suppose to be rude in a cute and elegant way, not to mention intelligent.

Moondancer was just another Zephyr, Maud Pie, Mud Briar, Glimmer, Shimmer, dumb angry dork #45 "character"

You totally missed the point of that episode then. Moondancer was essentially what Twilight would have become if she hadn't had Princess Celestia, her library, and eventually her friends in Ponyville. The episode was also a nod to some of the concept designs of Twilight's character, including reference to the name (Twilight Twinkle) and Moondancer's cutie mark was originally for Twilight.
Contrary to the Moondancer episode, Twilight discovered that her laziness about returning the book was a blessing in disguise to the librarian.
You did watch the episode didn't you?

>The center-right government of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison held onto power Saturday after a surprise surge in national elections that left some pundits making comparisons to President Trump’s poll-defying win in 2016.

>The apparent upset victory was the latest election to trample predictions by polling firms, which all showed Morrison’s political bloc trailing the opposition Labor Party.

>It also carried other uncanny parallels with Trump’s rise.

>In Australia’s coal country, Morrison was seen as an ally to protect jobs against a push for more renewal energy and greater efforts to battle climate change. Morrison draw further support with promises of tax cuts and a tough line on immigration, contrasting with Labor’s call for more social programs and less-stringent migrant policies.


>“This is a complete shock,” said Zareh Ghazarian, a political science lecturer at Monash University in Melbourne. “We have completely expected an opposite thing for two years. Voters rejected the big picture. They have endorsed a government that has run on a very presidential campaign and on its management of the economy.”

Yang is a jew who hates gun rights. His "Free 1000 dollars" shit exists to attract the selfish fags who want whites pacified into submission.
Trump is one fucking tiny step in the right direction, and his fans want more. I want more. You want more.
But how many hours do you think he'd spend in power if the Jews that really run this country thought he was a threat to their control, rather than a good thing for their wallets?
He's trying hard to convince the Jews a less Leftist America is a good thing for their wallets.
And being seen supporting the "Poland gassed Jews" lie gives Trump supporters an excuse to say "This is wrong! The holocaust didn't even happen, for fuck's sake!" where the other supporters can hear it and learn it.
He's the smallest beginner-level redpill there is, because if he went any further, he'd lose his one shot. He'd be taken out of power once the slanderers say "This is proof we were right all along!", giving the deep state the signal to take him out.
He's weakening jew control by waking his fans up enough to get them angry at "Globalism", AKA global jew dominance.
He's weakening jew control by waking them up enough to get them angry at the mainstream (JEW-OWNED) media and see how much the leftists and jews hate whites.
There's a reason why anti-nigger memes get over 10K upvotes on r/The_Donald. He tries hard to seem like a squeaky-clean symbol of hope, and his fans get more redpilled from the reactions of the left to this hope.
If someone angrier than Trump shows up in 2020 or 2024 in a portal from the future and says "I'm here to gas niggers and jews or die trying", let's vote for him.
But until then, Trump wins in 2020 and gets to finish Anti-Trust Busting the Silicon Valley jews or all Leftists will think their current violence against conservatives is acceptable and the ONLY way to win elections, democrats and the deep state pardon themselves and terrorists for their treason, leftist america aids white genocide and the EU's efforts against whites, the flow of gimmiegrants accelerates and never stops, Jew-owned democrats rule absolutely and forever, gun rights and the ability to defend yourself from niggers and doomsday prep are eroded, and western civilization's last election is lost.

You want to scream at the top of your lungs right now, but even more, a primal urge within you compels you to correct this man's fractal wrongness. You take a deep breath and prepare to address the crowd.

"FIRST OF ALL, you're wrong. I'm not the first man to get turned into a filly, I'm the fourth. The first was an honest to God Soviet, who is thankfully no longer with us. The second and third are with us right now, and if you touch Daring, she WILL bite."

On your cue, Daring makes a point to flash her pearly whites at the crowd. "Did you know," she adds, "that it is incredibly easy to bite through the human finger?" There is a sudden unease among the crowd and so Daring takes a bow. Good thing too, they needed to be taken down a peg.

You continue your pseudo-lecture. "SECONDLY… Did you just assume our species? We're ponies, not horses. Aren't you guys supposed to have a good veterinary program here or some shit? I am legit offended, and demand beer as an apology. I also demand another beer as apology for FONDLING MY FUCKING TITS. Seriously dude, where the fuck do you think you're grabbing? If you're gonna fuck me, at least get me a drink first."

At that line, the man quickly drops you, and you thankfully land on your hooves. You make a mental note not to pick up cats like that if you ever gain your human form again, because that fucking sucked.

"Seriously though, am I getting any beer or what?"

Never forget what happened with LavaBit and other sources that keep logs. Use Tox, XXMP, and blockchain content to prevent censorship. Use alt-sites such as here, bitchute, minds, etc., and use the deep web whenever necessary.

Do you think the Jews decided how this man treated his wives (DIVORCE BEHEADED DIED DIVORCE BEHEADED SURVIVED) or did all that church divorce shit was something that would prepare kids to be demoralized?

I could certainly see it as a sneaky way to plant the idea of "monarchy bad, democracy good", not that I think it's all that effective.
However, the question of whether the Jews did it remains an open one.

What is the point of celebrating Imperial Japan? The Japanese were barbaric invaders of China, torturing and raping civilians, conducting strange experiments on humans. They did the same to Filipino civilians, and captured American and British soldiers.

And they were scarcely part of the Axis. The Neutrality pact they secured with Stalin was absolutely critical to the Soviet victory over Germany. The divisions transferred from the Russian Far East were essential to the defense of Moscow. Stalin was so happy he repeatedly kissed the japense ambassador.

US Supreme Court allows Anti-trust lawsuit against Apple to go through
>In the case, Apple v. Pepper, four iPhone owners had sued the company saying the company unlawfully monopolizes the aftermarket for apps because the App Store charges a 30% commission to developers, resulting in inflated prices to consumers. The App Store is the only place iPhone users can legally purchase apps.
Justice Bret Kavanaugh wrote the opinion, joining the 4 liberal justices to form the 5-4 majority

>its a little early to break out the bubbly.

The reason this case is so significant is because it is a signal of how the Kavanaugh era Supreme Court will vote on antitrust cases that come before it. The United States formerly had fairly robust anti-trust laws, until the 1980s when the Court became dominated by “conservative” appointees, who reflexively vote against the plaintiffs in anti-trust cases because industrialists good, plaintiffs lawyers and regulations bad. So antitrust has been slowly whittled away under decades of conservative dominance. See the Virginia Slims case for an example.

To take another rather extreme instance, look at the 2007 case of “Bell Atlantic Corp v Twombly.” In that case, a consumer alleged that telephone companies were conspiring to not compete with each other and remain in their specific regions, as evidenced by the fact that they were mutually respecting each other’s territory. The defendants moved to dismiss, and the motion to dismiss was appealed all the way up to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court decides that the complaint didn’t not allege enough facts to evidence collusion, and so dismissed it. This is not a case that went to trial and was overturned, it never even went to discovery to allow any evidence to be found. This case so fucked up American law concerning motions to dismiss that every single law student in the US has to read this case in their Civil Procedure class, because of how it changed the law. Modern antitrust has been pretty bleak with the court having a majority of its members appointed by republicans for decades.

Along came this case. Four of the conservatives voted against the plaintiffs because plaintiffs lawyers bad. The four liberals, as per usual, voted against the corporation defendant because corporations bad. What was different this session - what shall be different for years to come - was and is Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who broke with conservative wing to vote against Apple.

>It would be nice if this increased scrutiny emboldened critics and tech-giant detractors
It will.

Hell, it’s already happening in one of the three cases above. India was inspired by the EU, and more shall follow, I clung India again and the EU again.

>these are relatively minor steps

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. The simple fact of the matter is that these corporations accumulated insane power over a period of more than a decade, and we are only just now beginning to counter them. It’s society waking up and just starting to react to the problem.

>simply because of the amount of time that will be committed to resolving them

It took more than a decade for these corporations to accumulate this much power, and it’s going to take more than a week to dismantle. It’s not like we are going anywhere. Most of us here will still be alive in three or four years, so if the battle against censorship is still going on then, so be it. It takes as long as it takes.

Look, what do you want out of a thread? Do you demand every thread to say “this great threat that has been menacing us for years or decades was suddenly and decisively defeated. The war is over. We won. You can all go home now.” Those kinds of events don’t happen very often, and when they do, they are proceeded by dozens or even hundreds of stories of skirmishes and battles. Europe’s victory over Napoleon, or the American victory over Japan, were not achieved in a single day. These require many years of successful engagements, or “small steps” as you call them, before final victory can be achieved.

What matters here is that these events, not necessarily important in themselves, show that everyone from Texas to India is fed up with Tech monopolies, and is starting to do something about them. That’s news worth spreading

You'd think jews would be more intelligent, but not Mike Vogel who doesn't care in the first place what he does and contradicts himself aimlessly and relentlessly.
That's what happens when you hire backwater executives and allow shit for brain investors/corporates to dictate. They have no talent, no experience, nothing, they are active 24/7 sabotaging manchildren. The MLP Movie was not suppose to be so shit.

If Hasbro handled transformers like they handle their minor IPs like Hanazuki, Littlest Pet Shop, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony then today they wouldn't be here.

I'm surprised they're capable of even taking care of 1 IP. You'd think the CEO would hire more competent people instead of leaving every IP to idiots and leaving only 1/100 IPs in capable and mature investors and executives.

What exactly do the feds provide that your state can't provide? If you live in a coastal state, gibs would be on the chopping block, and the niggers would revolt. Southern border states would have to manage the border, and would probably do a better job than the feds. Air travel might get dicey, IIRC air traffic controller are federal employees. The biggest problem I see would be going back to the barter system until alternate currencies arose. Expect to trade in cigs, liquor, ammo and dry goods.

If you are a federal employee on foreign soil, you are pretty fucked, though the armed services probably have enough materials in the field to get everyone home, even if there wasn't money to pay salaries.

I doubt other nations would launch an attack, the US is too far away, with unruly, well-armed citizens for any kind of a takeover to succeed. That said, federal assets or assets owned by us corporations in other countries would be up for grabs. Without us to defend europe, some eastern european countries might find themselves under russian rule again. Western europe would be butthurt that they would have to actually maintain a fighting force.
