  1. Bush is legit no better than Donald Trump, he just wore the mantle of “statesman” better which merely means he maintained a veil of civility while intentionally killing people and causing untold harm. Just because Trump Gollumed out so long ago that he can’t even pretend to be human, doesn’t mean we should let the smiling monsters off the hook. The Trump presidency should not cause a reevaluation of people who were rightly reviled just a few years ago. We knew who Bush was and had no doubts, Trump doesn’t change that. There are lots of ways to be awful. By rights, Bush should die in a jail cell, obviously that won’t happen, but he should still be ashamed to step outside of his house and have the rightful scorn heaped upon him. He should not be turned into America’s dumb uncle. The idea that anyone in that administration was attempting to do the right thing is laughable. The same thing will eventually happen to Donald Trump, sadly, no matter when he leaves office. To maintain the status quo, his crimes will be minimized, his administration will be normalized, Michelle Obama will make a big show of embracing him and spew nonsense about “respecting differences”. All of our presidents will still be basically “good people” who maybe broke a few minor laws, started a suspect war or two, but ultimately American exceptionalism will set all to right.
  2. It’s 2020, people are dying, secret police roam the streets, and Trump has been a shit everyday he has been in office, yet we are still playing this game. I can’t seem to find evidence of this “new tone” in his tweets or public comments, maybe they accidentally used WH talking points as a headline. When, oh, when will he become a real boy!?
  3. Guys, I don’t know, but the day Donald Trump drank water with one hand may be the day he truly became president.
  4. You come at Teddy’s boys you best be prepared to fight an entirely different man. You come at his dad or his wife, he’ll lick your boots forever.
  5. Ron Perlman has gotten under some conservative skins today. Enough to have Ted Cruz challenge him to a wrestling match against sexual assault enabler and fellow traitor to his country, Gym Jordan. Fat drunk, Matt Gaetz, is farting around in all of this too. Trumpscum sure are weird.
  6. Just settling into the new indie release One Step from Eden, a roguelite which is Slay the Spire meets Mega Man Battle Network. You have a decks of cards which are your attacks and spells, but the combat is active across a grid which means you have to dodge and line up attacks. It can get a bit mindfloody at times tbh.
  7. Started watching Ozark from the start, it hasn’t grabbed me halfway into the first season but I am planning to stick it out for the long haul for lack of anything else to do at the moment. Also started Castlevania which is decent for a video game adaptation. And because boredom makes fools of us all I took this “which tv/movie character are you” quiz https://openpsychometrics.org/tests/characters/ According to my top 25, I may be a huge asshole April Ludgate (Park and Recreation): 88% Moaning Myrtle (Harry Potter): 85% Seth (Superbad): 84% Ian Duncan (Community): 83% Marla Singer (Fight Club): 83% Ziggy Sobotka (The Wire): 83% Jane Margolis (Breaking Bad): 82% Janis Ian (Mean Girls): 82% Jimmy McGill (Breaking Bad): 81% Ben Chang (Community): 81% Haymitch Abernathy (The Hunger Games): 81% Dennis Nedry (Jurassic Park): 81% Bellatrix Lestrange (Harry Potter): 79% Jesse Pinkman (Breaking Bad): 79% Gollum (Lord of the Rings): 79% River Tam (Firefly + Serenity): 79% Britta Perry (Community): 79% Krusty the Clown (The Simpsons): 78% Officer Slater (Superbad): 78% Theon Greyjoy (Game of Thrones): 77% Fox Mulder (The X-Files): 77% Meredith Palmer (The Office): 76% Loki (Marvel Cinematic Universe): 76% The Joker (The Dark Knight): 76% Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock): 76%
  8. I would say this is not unlikely at all, well, there may not be an actual quid pro quo, that may be a stretch, but I imagine whatever beef Bolton had with Trump could put aside for the sexual thrill he must be feeling over the prospect of a war with Iran finally looking like a reality. He was resistant to talking to the Democrat lead House, and he contacted The Turtle before announcing that he was open to testifying before the Republican Senate. I don’t think Bolton has any intention of telling the truth no matter what the cost, honesty has never been his strong suit, and his warboner may make him want to get impeachment out of the way quickly.
  9. I sincerely hope Gym Jordan has cancer festering somewhere in him at this very moment.
  10. They are uncensored when they air, not sure exactly when fuck became okay, I think FXX is the only basic cable channel where I have noticed it so far. I remember not too long ago on AMC, Breaking Bad only got one fuck per season and that was censored during the initial airings.
  11. It is not that a squid is more sensical, more important than the actual attack is where it came from. A nuclear attack by Manhattan would still fall on the shoulders of the U.S, it would not exactly foster cooperation between the Soviets and America and put an end to the cold war (and impending nuclear hot war), which was Veidt ‘s purpose. America fucking up and failing to control a weapon which they lorded over their enemies is less likely to lead to diplomacy than an attack from somewhere bearing no allegiance to either side. That it is a big squid monster works on the meta level of playing with the idea of a massive, ludicrous supervillain plan that the heroes just happen to fail to prevent on this instance.
  12. The cavalry thinks the squid attack is fake because Rorschach sent his journal to a far right publication before heading to Veidt’s base. So the truth made it out there through a lunatic fringe paper. I don’t think the film ending works at all, Manhattan was a US asset, even if he went rogue and attacked America too, the Soviets would still blame them . An attack from an outside source that no had any stake in make’s way more sense.
