    They Sayers are Saying,

     

    I hope he buys so many things so many people took for granted that one day we all look around and realize no one knows from whom to collect one specific payment <in the amount of $1,378> that has to be paid to one specific creditor at one imminent hour or else the entire system shatters! 

    And no one pays! 

    And the economy collapses!

    Smiles, handjobs, and irregular pebbles become the currency of the land.

    Nobody knows who to blame 

    Nobody knows who to call

    American society devolves!

    The military apparati have guns, communications, DISCIPLINE and FUEL

    They hole up on their bases.

    Air sorties by blackhawk helicopters and A-10 Warthogs keep the roads mostly clear!

    The power works sometimes! 

    The Airforce keeps the nukes safe. We better prioritize the airforce!

    But the Navy has a lotta nukes too! They get deprioritized by agreeing to prioritization of Airforce on basis of nuclear maintenance but lock themselves into 2nd bannana status... classic powerbottom Navy technique. Try to undermine the Airforce at final tribal council. 

    Army becomes subsidiary of Airforce. Marines is already a subsidiary of Navy.

    It'll be fun!

    Yeah, if you're saying the Griner exchange is unprecedented or a bad deal, you need to do a little more background work.

    How's this for a deal:

    Our ambassador can hand Mr. Putin (or roll it to him across that table) a bullet and he can hand over everyone we name to him

    Alternatively, we deliver the bullet to him at an unspecified time and place in the future and do this dance again with the next despot

    ???

    I think my way would get way yuuger ratings, okAy?

    Couldn't find a better thread in the first bunch of pages, but thought this was a pretty fascinating read:

     

     

    I propose we take this new scientific summiting and use it to discriminate (muuuurder?) against anyone whose heartbeat does not meet an entaglement threshold with their brain!

    We'll come up with they 'whys' of the thing after we're done. Because the 'why' is because we can.

    <alternatively, if my heart-brain entaglement is below the threshold you're all monsters>

    I enjoyed my omelette this morning, but paying $6 for a dozen eggs didn't make it three times as enjoyable.  We're governed my people that don't give a damn about popular opinion when it comes to energy, open borders, and food production.  Do higher energy, unlimited immigration, and less to eat seem like election winners to you?  And yet...

     

    Money ain't nothin but a thang

    His cultists would probably buy into that… including Gosar.

    Cult is such a strong word.

    To describe Trumpistan you need a STRonGEr word, OK? Much stronger, it's gotta be so strong. So strong, ok? People... neeD ToLookAtThisWord and know this is a strong guy. 

    It's a strong guy, ok? You need to know it. 

    So strong...

    How strong? Well he's stronger than Hill-Airy Clin-Tonne 

    Stronger than her, ok? He picked up that old white lady, he picked her up in Ohio and Michigan and in Texas andToranntito... he picked her up in Umzakistan and TurkTaliban too, ok? Picked her up and gave her the people's justice because I, Tonald Drump, am the strongest.

    So strong.

    LOL, your too school for school act is the most pathetically patronizing of all, posing as if all us motherfuckers do not have the sense and moral fortitude to understand your righteous wisdom.  All you do these days is smell your own farts.

    Nothing about me is righteous. I'm just right about this. 

    Your enemies will kill for power. Your allies can't even get a traitor's tax returns. Won't even try to get his conviction and testimony.

    I thought Americans were devoted to their constitution. When I’ve been in the States on the 4th of July I’ve actually seen shops with displays highlighting the Constitution in their windows. Don’t you guys swear oaths to your constitution? Don’t children stand in classrooms and get daily doses of indoctrination on the constitution? Don’t soldiers stand in front of news cameras and talk about how they are fighting to uphold the constitution wherever they are in the world? Don’t Republicans, specifically, brag about how they uphold the constitution?

    What the flying F is going on when the former President says terminate the constitution so he can be restored to the presidency, and the entire US doesn’t rise up and shake their fist in his face. Or drag him to a lamppost for the requisite hanging?

    ”Freedom of speech”?

    Ameristan!

    Welcome the future, first Right on your Fucking Now

    Speaking solely as a Canadian and what my nation's been building over the last 150+ years... Trust is a gargantuan roadblock to this point.  

    That just means greater value from successful cooperation. Buuuunch of red states that would look mighty fine as independent allies of the Reconstituted States of America. 

    Not gonna get that deal from the Reds playa. Just gotta hit 'fuck it' first. And that day is nearer every hour, judging from what our friends on the fascist right are up to.

    And so, M Jace, what are you doing on that front? 

    More seriously, as Jace is the antithesis of serious, in our city this advocacy of involuntary commitments of homeless demonstrating mental derangements has become a public argument as that is what the clownmayor has decreed should be done.  It does not address the underlying cause of so much derangement among the homeless, which is HOMELESSNESS.  Just as his idea for dealing with the rat overload is to appoint a 'badass' killer of rats, without addressing the cause which is the massive lack of street sanitation due to the those outdoor dining shacks and street cleaning and pickup and sanitation.

    Well Kanye isn't homeless.

    Anyway, I think that if homelessness offends (it does me) then one should be willing to pay to resolve the offense. 

    So I say take all that state money Bezos has stolen back and use it to subsidize some building contractors. Cheap, affordable, housing isn't impossible. There's so much land in this country our masters stole. 

    Steal it back :)

    And if you're so bent outta shape that the masters stole the land from natives, well, that sounds like natural allies. :)

     

     

     

  10. Nah, you motherfuckers were discussing "what needs to be done" with the urgency and tone as though he took a Mossberg into a movie theater and started shooting. 

    Fuck your straw Jace

    Guy is a fucking doucheclown and a racist. HopefulYE Ye put he MonYE in trustYE accountYEs 

    When I make fun of a crazy motherfucking sub-villain (I mean he ain't no Trump) I don't feel the need to patronize the fuck out of him and pretend I'm concerned about his mental well-being instead of imagining some just desserts for a demonstrably asinine individual.

    So that's the thing I hate about liberals these days, Varys. The ass faced holier than thou act that is used to veneer every other sentence you people feel compelled to write around buzzwords and compassionate sentiment completely at odds with your broader message:

    Make this man go away

    I have also noticed this and think it is definitly ridiculously wrong . It really should not matter who writes about what. It also leads to finding one of the in-group to hide behind, if you want to criticise the in-group, which is hypocritical and cowardly.

    I think the who writes what thing is really quite annoying. IIRC there was a discussion not too long ago who may TRANSLATE the poetry of Amanda Gorman into German (or was it Dutch?) , and the translator who was first hired was dismissed because she was not of color and so could never translate this correctly.  (?) I believe  this way of thinking is fundamentally wrong and will lead- if thought to the end ,  to an extrem tribalism: Only some special people can write about something, only some people may translate it and only some people may read it (or at least can read it correctly). this is the opposite to empathy and mutual unterstanding  of differnt groups and accentuates and enhances the differences.

     

    Preach!
