No of course I have absolute faith in this government to feed the poor to the wealthy. They spent trillions just to bump the line up a bit so the stragglers could sell for some cash, and then buyback their bitcoins later for an enormous profit when they hit rock bottom. All that money so they could short stocks, at a snap of their fingers smh

This government is completely different from a hypothetical future government that doesn't protect profiteering and insurance companies. The kinds of people writing the checks for those guys would fundamentally differ from those writing'em for these guys. Incentive structures, man.

Thbbbt! What insult? I never trusted that fascist-hugging torture apologist. So she made a vague gesture of support for Bernie in 2016, while being primaried from the left, by quitting a powerless ceremonial position, whoop-dee-doo! If she didn't have a pretty face she would have never gotten a following from the most gullible parts of the left.

But one has to ask, if Tulsi was a Russian asset, and has endorsed Biden, does that make Biden a Russian asset by association?

I never bought the whole "Tulsi is a Russian asset" bullshit. Just a conservative cosplaying as a progressive. Hillary Clinton smearing her was the biggest shot-in-the-arm Tulsi could have asked for at the time.

"Fascist-hugging torture apologist" is a pretty good summation of the entire democratic party.

Lipinski's out, but it's really way too little overall.

Man, lots of people have said for years that the 1976 film "Network" was prophetic for the media environment we're trapped in today.

But when I think of all those elderly people shuffling to their dooms in Covid-19-infected polling locations to vote for a clearly senile candidate because their televisions told them to; the film that truly predicted this moment was Cronenberg's "Videodrome."

Long live the new flesh!

Quote:
President Trump is firing the intelligence community inspector general whose insistence on telling lawmakers about a whistle-blower complaint about his dealings with Ukraine triggered impeachment proceedings last fall, the president told lawmakers in a letter late Friday.

The move came as Mr. Trump announced his intent to name a White House aide as the independent watchdog for $500 billion in corporate pandemic aid and notified Congress of other nominees to inspector general positions, including one that would effectively oust the newly named chairman of a panel to oversee how the government spends $2 trillion in coronavirus relief.

The slew of late-night announcements, coming as the world’s attention is gripped by the coronavirus pandemic, raised the specter of a White House power play over the community of inspectors general, independent officials whose mission is to root out waste, fraud and abuse within the government.


A quick refresher of the situation we continue to find ourselves in.

Don't worry, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and especially Joe Biden are going to save us!

It only looks like they get their asses kicked on our behalf over and over again. They're experts at 17-dimensional chess, you see. Playing a long game that'll totally pay off at some hazy point in the far distant future.

Whatever you do, don't vote for the guy who actually squeezes concessions out of Republicans and whose policies seem to meet the most pressing national needs at the moment. That wouldn't be sensible! Plus you wouldn't want people to think you're some kind of a bro, would you?

Trump's going to cruise to reelection from his one time payment of $1,200. (Which is somehow Totally Not Socialist. .. and it doesn't matter who is in power - the party in the big boy chair is always supposed to do the bare minimum to quell unrest.)

The Biden finger rape stuff is going to be a big deal when November draws close. Try to act surprised when it happens - the worst thing about the internet is you get to read the TV scripts ahead of time. Spoilers ruin all the fun of novelty and exploration.

Woulda-been Flordia Governor Gillum was found in a room with two dudes high on meth, some kinda meth orgy. It's a cliche that almost everyone in politics is some kind of sexual deviant for a reason. Makes sense though - why would you willingly choose to lick so much boot and become a glorified beggar for decades unless there was an exclusive reward at the end of it all?

Speaking of eerily prophetic stuff on the internet...

The Schumer tactic has been astonishingly effective - their tactic of campaigning to republicans has gotten them a ton of support of upper class tone police voters from major cities in states that are D in the electoral college. Those are useful people to have around in a primary.

The possibility of them having Biden step down for his VP to run isn't completely zero. Girl Trump, which is what their base wants, would be Amy. But if they put up Cuomo or something instead, that would be the most perfect Democrat losing strategy in the world... but I still think trying to maintain kayfabe with Biden the entire time is the most efficient path to failure for them. Not that anything matters in the wrestling arena this time. Cause, 1200.

$1,200 sure is a hell of a lot more than we're used to seeing from our country. Nobody will realize this is overwhelmingly meant as a payment to rent collectors - humans are very simple and strange animals..
