Find Me On:
Because after every debate… or any milestone in the campaign… the next day i have to listen to the hordes of right wingers I know go BALLISTIC and spout out one asinine thing after another that makes absolutely no sense to me and sounds like groupthink and scares the bajeezus out of me… so i need to have my arguments prepared. Sharpen my knives if you will. To turn around and snap, “he said 32% not 79% you lying bastard!!” Regardless of age, people are as impressionable as children. If they hear this garbage and there is no one there to refute it, then that’s not good in my opinion.
So – yeah, i need to be savvy on the latest debate to have my arguments in place. OH! And, okay, my immediate family is hardcore republican. I’m talking like… they wish W Bush was president for all eternity. I pretty much strutted out of the womb as a liberal/leftist piece of garbage in their eyes. So we get into constant screaming matches and the ONE intelligent thing they have to pull on me is to say, “Tell me where you get your info. Did you watch this that one night? Did you watch the debates? The conventions?” On and on. If I didn’t, I lose all credibility to them. I gotta fight the power. The powers that be.
Yeah Ryan doesn’t want any exceptions in the first place… so when they make exceptions to get elected and those exceptions don’t pan out and this huge gray area erupts, they can just slip on in and say, “look at this mess! look at all these court cases where the girl wasn’t related to the uncle and this other girl lied and this other girl wasn’t raped on and on… oh the babies” and that’s when they’ll strike and do a blanket law… illegalizing ALL abortions. Quelling all the “issues” and removing the gray areas.
I have hope that this will never ever happen and yes, it’s alarmist. But if anything even comes close, it scares me and any girls I might one day have.
F balls. I was looking forward to a Puppy-controlled Apocalypse. These guys have to ruin everything.
I agree – I think that they think their ideas are in the best interest of everyone… but we are too stupid and weak and co-dependent to embrace them right now. Like we are crack addicts or something and they need to make a story up to get us to the rehabilitation, and once we are in there, trapped, they’ll let us know what our new lives are going to be like. What’s “best” for us.
“It’s a trap!”
Just googled it. Momma like! ahahahaha – seriously though that was the first thought that popped into my head.
Just realized that my rant doesn’t seem related to the thread lol – but Ryan’s inability to provide details on his policies reminded me of all the little slogans he was using to say basically, regardless of the details, him and Romney most definitely, no doubt, he’d bet his millions of children on it, will complete the task and get XX results immediately (that’s Dems too though). And I overheard him say after the debate to his wife that yes, the Republican ticket plans to provide Robot Bulters for everyone very soon. Well, cyborg robot butlers created from junk yard scraps and poor people parts.
Agreed – I understand that being wishy-washy about an argument is probably not the best in the politics game… but like, is it seriously insane to think that a politician would just once admit, “Hey – this is my plan. If things go according to plan, I think we can do this. But like ANY OTHER F-ING PLAN THAT HAS EVER BEEN CREATED things have a way of not following the path and not adding up to an ideal outcomes. It’s wild! It’s kind of like guiding a car with no breaks through a crowded shopping mall or some other analogy that is far better. You could do it… but you’ll probably have to change course along the way, hit some shit, hit some peeps, snatch a pretzel from Annie’s Pretzels because you are hungry… etc… and you might on crash the car into Payless but it’s further than Abercrombie.”
I don’t know what I’m saying… that was some stream of consciousness stuff. I just really hate when any politician says, “we CAN and WILL do this by THIS TIME FRAME and this is exactly what is going to happen and the other side made promises and waaah they didn’t keep them but we will definitely 110% keep every promise we make.” I’d rather them give the plan and say, “this is the ideal scenario. but obviously, due to reality, this might not pan out exactly as we planned.” Is that so hard to say?
I thought it was very good, actually on an entertaining level… and terrifying level. When they were both asked about religion and abortion, and Paul Ryan gave his answer, I seriously felt my heart race and my skin crawl. Like – this guys and his ass backward viewpoints are simply terrifying. I mean, I’m SURE half of the kids that jumped up on stage after the debate were adopted, because if they weren’t he’d be a complete hypocrite… so for sure, 80% of them are adopted but really? Can this guy honestly say that Obama is attacking religious freedoms when this guy, if he had his own choice, would force his religious viewpoint on an entire gender, illegallizing abortions completely? Aaaaaaahhhh! I don’t want to start any S on this forum but it really really really infinity “reallys” bugged me and scared me.
Aaahhh!! Dead Calm!! I remember watching that movie as a kid!! Whenever we went to visit my grandma, she had a convenience store/vhs vental store down her street and we got it from there and then we watched it and it scared theee sh*t out of me. And that dude from Jurassic Park is in it too and he’s great.
I give this infinity upvotes.
When I talk to my toaster, it listens. It REALLY listens. So everyone needs to calm down about people not being allowed to marry their toasters. Okay, multiple toasters… that’s just insane.
Although I agree with the general consensus that what Don did for Lane was definitely called for and very generous of him (not ratting him out but giving him the opportunity to resign quietly)… me hating Don kind of changed that scene for me (hate in the sense that I find his character endlessly interesting and frustrating and different etc). Like… really Donnie? YOU are going to chastise someone about breaking the rules? About trust? About a lot of things (I realize that this is obviously part of the Weiner design lol – but definitely made me dislike Don just a little more). Don isn’t Don Draper. He’s lied to everyone. Used another man’s identity for years. I’m not a lawyer but I’m a guessin’ that’s breaking a few laws to an employer. And when Pete told Bert about his identity, Bert was like “whatever – does this have anything to do w/ contributing nothing to anyone and not wearing shoes? No? Okay get outta my face.” Bert threw him a bone. Couldn’t he throw Lane one? Doesn’t he owe the universe that much? Not to say I didn’t like his reaction – I loved it, because it was so incredibly hypocritical and crappy of him. But took it a different way I guess.
Does she HAVE to sneer like that? Don’t do that! Scary…
If they make ALF into a movie, I hope they take a very modern, dark, cynical direction. Maybe Christopher Nolan can pick that baby up. Give ALF some more depth… a fur cut perhaps… add some much needed sophistication. Explore his past a bit more. WHY does he love to murder and eat cats so much? He’s not a part of his alien world any longer. There are other things to eat. But ALF doesn’t care…
Because the Tanners were murdered by the CIA to remove the only obstacle between them and him. But now he thirsts for more than cat flesh. He thirsts for vengence.
Small Wonder scared thee sh*t out of me as a kid. I shudder to think of it in 3-D. No. NO. Noooooo
This wins. I say it now and I will stand my ground. This wins.
He’s probably dead.
Holy crap I can’t believe that this kid is all grown up… time sure flies. I like the Blade Runner/Jerry Mcguire mix to his message too. Those two movies should have combined forever ago.
This seriously is amazing.
I hope you call them the full names when you are calling after them. That’s. Awesome. I had a stray cat outside my apartment complex in college that I called “Daenerys Targaryen Stormborn Dragon Mother” – Dragmo as a nickname. I know. I’m pathetic. But it amused me to no end.
Re-watch GOT – I swear they are even better the second time around.
Watch Archer because it’s amazing.
Is there a reason they are doing this outside just wanting money and prolonging the inevitable? I mean, can’t they be a little less obvious about it?
And we all look exactly the same as when it started…
She ALWAYS does this face.
I like Carson’s eyebrows. I think he combs them upward.
I think this was the episode where I started to hate Bates. That might be unbelievable to some cuz he’s all sweet and virtuous to a fault n’ stuff. Just seems like he’s that dude your friend dates and is super in love with that constantly has all these issues… your friend has to battle for his affection, then gets it only to find out that he’s got a crazy ex-beast that wants to destroy him, and then he abandons your friend to appease ex-beast, then your friend convinces him to come back, and then ex-beast is after him again, on and on. And your friend is telling you all this over some half off appetizers and margaritas at Applebees and your like, “Giiiirl you need to run from this man. This is no good.”
