  • He made The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny. I will love him forever.

  • Graduate's father arrested for blocking Black superintendent from shaking daughter's hand
  • Again, you're giving massive benefit of the doubt by assuming the psychotic parent is not racist and that he's telling the truth about the bullying situation, especially when his actions don't seem to match his words.

    Just because he says he's not racist, doesn't mean he's not racist. And his actions look pretty damn racist.

  • Graduate's father arrested for blocking Black superintendent from shaking daughter's hand
  • Because even a moment's consideration will tell you a situation where the district superintendent and only the district superintendent is responsible for poor handling of a disciplinary situation is extremely fucking unlikely.

    You are going out of your way to give a psychotic parent who assaulted a school official benefit of the doubt that he has not earned.

  • Graduate's father arrested for blocking Black superintendent from shaking daughter's hand
  • Then why specifically the superintendent? Even if this was a bullying issue with an unsatisfactory conclusion, there's no way he would have engaged with the superintendent of the district without engaging with the principal first. They would both have failed to resolve the problem, so why would he have gone after the superintendent specifically and left the principal there to shake his daughter's hand?

    And, of course, the other issue is, even if that was true, that doesn't make what he did OK. He's marginally less shitty by virtue of not being openly racist, but he still made sure that his daughter's last memory of high school is him getting arrested for assaulting the district superintendent and embarrassing her in front of the entire graduating class and their families.

  • So, we eat the cops as a side dish when we eat the rich, right?

  • Gender rule

  • XP actually wasn't great on release, though I don't know anybody who clung to ME, considering it was itself a huge dumpster fire. It wasn't until SP1 hit that XP got really good.

    Most of us were just riding out 98SE as long as we could until MS got their shit together. Some people had 2000, but it wasn't really a consumer-class OS; it was meant more for the enterprise.

  • At the rate we're going, this is what Windows 12 will look like.

  • Right wing humorule
  • I always looked at Team America as a satire of right wing thought. Basically the Bush worldview taken to comical extremes.

    I know Parker and Stone are lolbertarians, but they managed to actually skewer the right pretty well back in the day.

  • Trump floats idea of three-term presidency at NRA convention
  • And what chance do you think the Democrats are going to have to reform after Donald Trump undoes the entire democratic process and proclaims himself president for life?

    He's not going to go away quietly. We know this. He proved it on 1/6, and he's outright saying it out loud again now. Stop pretending he's just another politician. He's a wannabe despot, and we need to not give him another chance to become an actual one.

    Look, Biden is garbage. The Democrats are garbage. But at least they're garbage that play by the fucking rules. If Trump wins, I honestly do not believe we are going to get another chance at this.

  • THEN STOP WALKING INTO THEIR FUCKING JAWS

  • Trump floats idea of three-term presidency at NRA convention
  • You're preaching to the choir here. Biden is shit. But, again, at least I know he'll go away in 4 years. Trump is going to try his damnedest not to. He already fucking tried once. And frankly, the fact that it's been four years and he's free to try again is proof enough the courts aren't doing enough to stop him. There's a reason they've been pushing all this stuff until after election.

    Open your eyes and stop pretending Trump is normal. In nearly 250 years that this country has existed, nobody has tried to pull the shit he's tried to pull, and he will try it again.

  • Trump floats idea of three-term presidency at NRA convention
  • Who needs courts when you have a cult of personality, a lot of whom have organized into paramilitary groups?

    Even now, the courts are failing to hold him responsible for what he did. They won't save us. And half of Congress is on his fucking side.

  • Trump floats idea of three-term presidency at NRA convention
  • You seem to still be thinking in terms of Trump doing a term and going away. He won't. He proved that on 1/6/2021, and his little jokes and musings now only reinforce it.

    I have every expectation that, if Trump manages to become President again, he is not leaving that office until he dies. He will undo American democracy to keep his power. He already tried before.

    Biden sucks. Democrats suck. You won't catch me arguing with you there. But Trump is the death of the Republic.

  • Trump floats idea of three-term presidency at NRA convention
  • Even so, still better than a perpetual Trump dictatorship.

    If Trump wins, he will, without a doubt, try again to end American democracy. He did before. And whatever you think of our current situation, at least we have a fucking voice right now.

  • Trump floats idea of three-term presidency at NRA convention
  • So when Trump pulls another January 6, but succeeds this time and declares himself president for life, do you think that will make the situation better or worse?

  • Trump floats idea of three-term presidency at NRA convention
  • And that's a big part of why, despite everything Biden is doing, I am 100% voting for him. Because if Biden wins, there will be a 2028 election where we can hopefully find someone better, and I'm not convinced that there will be under Trump.

    Four years of Trump came really close to turning this country into a kakistocratic dictatorship. I really don't want to give him another chance.

    Men in a sports utility vehicle speed past a pedestrian and shout "you're fucking gay, man" and "gaaaaaay." The pedestrian waves at them, with joyous tears in his eyes and says "thank you boys, you've helped me come to terms my with my sexuality!" The men in the car consult a list of names and one asks "ok, who's next on the list?" They pass by another pedestrian and shout "you're trans!" and "admit you're trans, idiot!"

    Also, pretty sure those guys have been in my subconscious every night.
