  • Power is a drug and only Ksen is immune, but that is because he delights in being a vehicle for popular sentiment. Febble is nuts and doesnt realize her power hunger. Ty is a moron and thus simply blends into the status quo which guarantees his privilege, however petty. Supernaut is clueless and just delights in his tiara.

People are just rage rage rage against the dying of the light.

I wish they'd just rage against corporate ownership of our society and culture, but I may just be lost in the 90's. Today, apparently, we welcome any and all messages from our corporate overlords, and don't expect subservient media companies to contradict them.

Deadspin is a decidedly liberal/leftist sports blog, with usually liberal/leftist comments. They reported that ESPN apparently caved to an advertiser, and changed a headline because said advertiser protested. The comments on the article about it, though, are pretty much universally in defense of the advertiser, and claim that ESPN was clearly in the wrong to potentially harm the brand of someone advertising with them. What sort of sickness is this?
"the widening scandal over Obama's portrait"
How much milk does one man even need? Dave, if you start doing squats, you'll be built like Arnold Schwarzenegger in about a year.
There's a cynical part of me that feels like it will be awful timely to end gerrymandering right before the hypothetical "blue wave".
I heard another story about an ex-military cop deciding not to shoot an armed dude who was clearly just trying to get shot. In that case, though, the guy ended up actually surviving, and the cop wasn't fired. Although, some other cops did grumble about it all. It sounds super weird to say, but I think cops might need some military training. They get to use military equipment, after all.

Oh man, Rick Snyder recently had to undo his stupid plan to have private companies provide food in prisons, because it was just that much of a massive garbage fire. Maggots in the food, high costs, employees of the beneficiary companies having sex with inmates. The whole nine yards.

Of course, the point here isn't to improve anyone's well-being, but to cut SNAP, and run distraction by saying, "but we'll send people random ass canned goods. Soup is good food."

Every good capitalist knows that governments make better economic decisions for people than they do for themselves. But, I guess Trump never pretended to be in the capitalist wing of his party, which is fucking weird if you think about it. I mean, he's Donald Trump.
Anyway,  Nazis aren't really all that bad. Right Dave?
No.  Nazis like you are horrible.

Hmm. I don't remember advocating genocide.

Dave, on the other hand, has hinted at it, when suggesting that unNatural interventions or preventive measures like vaccines are BAD, and that it might be better to have people die NATURALLY.

He will deny this, of course, and he won't see that that is the implication of many things that he has said (he understands eugenics well enough when it comes to livestock, to which he also applies this argument), but he has no problem with advocating cultural traditions in which the physically weak go to the wall.  Or in which political opponents are hanged for treason.
I've always said that vaccines and antibiotics are fine for people who insist on living contrary to Nature's laws.  However, it would be better for them to stop living contrary to Nature's laws.  I do believe in capital punishment (violence by a democratically elected and controlled government), but not in private violence.

You know Lincoln was democratically elected. It's hard to see how your position on violence isn't a contrived excuse to defend the confederacy, and one you have no intention of consistently adhering to.
It's just an advertisement. This is where we are.

When it comes down to it, I think the shining goal should be providing equality of opportunity. I think you have to deal with wealth disparity (reign it in) before you can even really start to get there.
I mean, I do. I think I'd like some basic income scheme over the weird patchwork system that currently exists in America, but you can't always have everything you want, I guess.
Give a man a pig, and you know what happens. Teach a man to pig...
If the economy crashes, does Trump just get primaried? It would be hilarious if Pence ran against him, but I know it won't happen.

I read some random paper a million years ago that said it takes about a year before a president can claim ownership over the economy. I'm sure that's a bit of a huerestic, but I liked the conclusion of the paper--Republicans are bad--so I remember it.
Oh, I know. I just heard about the poll results I mentioned, and thought it was relevant. Not enough to actually Google it, mind you.
Didn't some polls pop up after the last shut down, saying most people blamed it on Trump and/or Congressional Republicans?
infowars? Seriously?

We kinda all knew Dave was down w/ Alex Jones, though. I mean, Mueller did 9/11.
So reviewing their relative policy positions, I think El-Sayed is better than Whitmer, but he better be eligible to serve as governor, because if a Democrat doesn't challenge him on that, then any Republican politician sure as hell will.
I don't know about El-Sayed, but Democrats in Michigan aren't that hot on Whitmer.

It's all mainly because she's low-profile, and some folks were hoping for someone to run with an established name and brand. That's not going to happen, though, so the current thinking is we have to rally behind her.
Omg. Robert Mueller did 9/11
Hey just for fun... Does anyone here know the date Robert Mueller assumed the role of head of the FBI?

September 4, 2001. Off the top of my head (I had to wiki it).
