    Frontline is still alive and kicking. One kid starts college this fall and the other enlisted in the Navy.

    The TNZ mod office looks like Eddie Valiant’s office in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. A lot of empty liquor bottles and desks untouched for years and covered in dust.

    I can settle for us at least acknowledging where we went wrong in our own countries and working towards fucking that. I don't think anyone would let their lawns go to seed just because the neighbors keep a hoodie fleet on cinders in their driveway. :shrug:

    Speaking of that, how's Justin Trudeau's approval ratings after the latest round of "Canada Fucks First Nations Members in the Ass Without Lube"? :?:

    I have no idea what you mean by this. It's one thing to acknowledge how your own country has fucked up/is still fucking up, and it's quite another to criticize other countries that are also fucking things up today. I feel comfortable doing both.
    1. Fuck Trudeau. Scheer and Singh are still somehow worse alternatives, but Trudeau remains the only politician I've ever booed in person.

    2. That whole situation is... iffy. It's not always like Standing Rock where there's sincere concerns about health and safety, first nation protests in Canada are usually more of a shakedown.

    I think if we can realize what brought our societies so far out of that sort of thing we can find ways to motivate them to do so. The problem is we have a lot of people who like them fighting in the dirt because it keeps them from being real competition to our nations and it makes money. I think the key was what scared the Saudis and made them kill that journalist. Communication and the breaking of the language barrier will expose future generations to each other in ways that has never been done before,

    Really you could never get me to take up arms against English speaking countries, Japanese, australia, Canada, Mexico, and a lot of other places because I have people I know there. The more the language barrier is broken the more I will know people in other countries. The more I will see them and their friends and families and not what the media shows me. The more I will care about those people. Those walls are crumbling as we speak, but change takes time.

    exactly. If I know the people of the world I am less likely to want to kill them because they matter to me. When I am ignorant of who they are it is easier not to see them as human. That works for other people too.

    I have sort of realized that the beast spoken of in the Bible is actually a good thing, and it may have been predicted. Not because of something spiritual, but rather because one of the con men who wrote it realized that worldwide communication would bust the grip religion and tribal hate on humanity. When everyone is part of the community you have no other tribes to attack and then morals fall onto the individual with crimes. They realized way back then how their holy kingdom would fall.

    He was not reliant on mainstream contracts and money. He also does not seem like an overspender Kardasian type. You are not going to destroy a guy like that. He is probably going to get more alt-right now because that will be his audience and he knows it. He has no reason anymore to try and please anyone else because they all are trying to hurt him by not spending. He is smart and he an work with the controversy. Don't be surprised when he become a right wing darling.

    I suspect it will turn out well, that he will sell out the venue for both his shows, and the people who buy tickets will have a hilarious time.

    Those who have already decided that he's a filthy rapist and feel the need to continue to bash him in an attempt to erase him from public life will certainly go nuts on Twatter and other social media sewers, because that's what's expected of them. These are pathetically unhappy people who find no other purpose in life other than pinballing from one online fauxrage to the next. It's all a contest between Twatter spastics to see who can virtue signal the most vigorously.

    No need to worry, the Twatter spastics will move on to the next online fauxrage the next day, probably something having to do with the color of Kim Kardashian's thong that somehow isn't inclusive enough. :dayton:

    If the Improv in San Jose gave a fuck about what Twatter spastics thought, they wouldn't have booked CK.
