Fuck civility. It it walks like a goose stepper and talks like a goose stepper, it’s a Nazi.
I’d never seen this Tina Fey tribute to Steve Martin, but the thing that struck me at the very beginning was the woman sitting next to Steve looked like a younger, thinner version of Tina.
Tina noticed, too.
This is going to sound insane, but there was a time I thought scenario No. 3 was a legitimate possibility. I really did say to myself, “did someone turn on the Large Hadron Collider on Election Day.”
Because the only way this was possible was if there was a rip in the space-time continuum caused by the Collider, and I was shifted into an alternate universe. Somewhere in the quantum realm, Hillary Clinton is president, the kandy kolored klown is on Fox News spewing stupid shit, and the Republicans have begun impeachment hearings on stuff that they made up, but stuff that Spanky is actually doing in my current reality.
But then, I thought, I’ve been watching too much “Star Trek.”
Democrats need leaders who are willing to fight for what’s right.
Nancy Pelosi did this last year:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Sunday that even if Democrats were to retake control of the House in the 2018 elections, pushing for impeachment proceedings of President Donald Trump would not be one of their legislative priorities.
“It’s not someplace that I think we should go,” Pelosi, appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” said of whether Democrats would seek to oust the president if they regained the majority.
And in 2006, during the administration of George W. Bush (the Dumber), she said this:
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi promised Wednesday that when her party takes over, the new majority will not attempt to remove President Bush from office, despite earlier pledges to the contrary from others in the caucus.
“I have said it before and I will say it again: Impeachment is off the table,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said during a news conference.
Pelosi’s “threat” to the country isn’t that she wants to impose “San Francisco values” on the rest of America (whatever the hell that means in the warped minds of the right). Her threat is that she isn’t willing to take down war criminals and human rights abusers when they’re staring her in the face and say she’s the threat.
Aly and I went to magic mountain to ride rollercoaster for her birth day and we filmed it with the new Fusion from @gopro . This is just footage put through stabilization during the stitching process. I thought it looked interesting, what do you think?
So what does it normally look like?
Both pretty trippy.
Yeah, we know what you mean. Because we also speak code. Damon Young over at VSB provided a list for:
2. Real Americans
3. Middle America
4. Working-class Americans
12. Red-state voters
13. Rust Belt voters
20. Soccer moms
22. Law enforcement
23. Hardworking Americans
24. The middle class
25. The upper middle class
26. The upper class
30. Baby boomers
32. The military
33. The troops
34. Yinzers (for Pittsburgh)
35. Steel/coal/plant workers
36. Legal/documented immigrants
37. Regular/simple/decent/rural/normal Americans
And he followed up with:
2. Inner city
3. At risk
4. Low income
6. Welfare recipient/dependent
7. Any out of context reference to Chicago (This, btw, also works for Detroit.)
8. Drug dealer (Interestingly enough, not drug addict. Perhaps because drug addict implies a passivity and victimhood that drug dealer does not.)
9. Single parent(s)
11. Transient population
12. Section 8
14. Low socioeconomic status
16. Affirmative action
23. Diverse people/population
24. Depressed neighborhood/school/people/population
25. High-crime neighborhood/school
27. Sketchy block/neighborhood
29. Those people
Keep your code list handy as we move closer to the midterms.
I’ve been pounding my head against the wall since November 2016. Not good for my head, and definitely not good for the wall.
Haven’t you noticed that “incivility” creates angst among the pundit class only when the left defends freedom and human rights. When the right yells and screams to take away the rights of others, it’s celebrated by the same pundits as the Tea Party.
The fascists who put babies in concentration camps (and that’s what “internment camps” or “tender age shelters” really are) should thank God that the most threatening thing they face is someone yelling “shame” at them while they’re trying to enjoy their cheese plates.
