Re: Orange is the new President

https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1204503645607333888 Not sure I would cast Trump as Thanos. For one thing the skin tone is all wrong. The closest analog would probably be Dark Reign-era Norman Osborn, but the difference is that Gobby is actually smart and can make and follow through on plans....

Re: Orange is the new President

I thought he was an idiot who would be able to stumble his way out of Afghanistan and Iraq. I thought he was dead serious about the immigration and trade stuff but that he would be completely cock blocked by Congress and the bureaucracy. I am a stupid motherfucker sometimes. Probably all the time. ...

Re: Music for the Masses

Youtube's algorithm is completely shit now. Absolute dog shit. It just suggests other commercially viable stuff you've listened to. It used to be good. Do you use Pandora? Their algorithm is pretty good. Spotify, too - I've found a lot of good stuff through their "Discover Weekly" personalized play...

I fully expect that, after the eventual pullout, there will be those who argue "We were winning, but we were stabbed in the back by the liberals/MSM/libertarians/etc."
There are miletry loiers who make this very argument about Viet Nam 1.0

That's what we call electability. You fill in the blanks on your own.
This is a good point. We didn't know what Barack Obama thought about anything in 2008 or 2012.

Re: Brexit: what say ye?

Also no one except idiots have ever claimed that shareholders provide some kind of service. They provide capital, and they want return on that investment. Sort of like, oh I don't know, people who buy sovereign debt.

Re: I just don't get it

I mean there's a lot of takes out there about the ad. I haven't seen any that express offense. I found it funny that her vlogging looked like she was being held hostage by a stationary bike (which, considering the cost of a Peloton, might not be far off).
