  1. Trump Presidency

    The worst administration staffed by the worst people: https://www.outsideonline.com/2355936/zinke-fires-inspector-general?fbclid=IwAR2EG347Hb67LkkbIjFCbbU1PNaJ9bNZn1xWDS_NQdVp_Nk6IZHOt7I4cpg If you're facing a record number of investigations, fire the person investigating you and replace them with the person who was hired to cover up another investigation of unethical behaviour. But, you know, it's improtant to troll the libs because all government spending is wasteful and no one really cares about the enviorment, right?
  2. Plastic

    This argument is infintile. Plastics - both their production and their waste - are harmful to the enivorment. Saying that they are not related to climate change is like saying that if you're dying of both lunge and pancrotic cancer, that smoking only makes your lung cancer worse. The point is that you are dying of cancer - or in this metaphor, human activiety is harming the planet, making it less habital - so splitting hairs about much your cigarettes are hurting completely misses the point.

    Actually, I think it's on brand. He's an entitled rich douchebag who should have been getting laid at highschool parties but because he was an angry drunk, he didn't and had to restort to grobing unwilling girls over their clothes or exposing himself at parties.
  4. Plastic

    Plastics are being put (left) behind in the environment, which is ... wait for it ... changing to climate!

    The irony that the man who became famous for wanting to question Clinton about the details of a blowjob refused to (or lied about) the sex games he played was lost on nobody.
  6. Plastic

    Pollution and Climate Change are inexorably linked.
  7. Plastic

    Some cities are banning plastic bags/charging $.10 per paper bag, and plastic/single stream recycling is now the normal (at least in the north east), with some municipalities allowing for composting to be seperated as well. On a societal level, no. There is no appatite for changing or reducing plastic consumption. You have to remember, half of the country doesn't believe that climate change is real, that we can - or should do anything about it, and any effort to do so would risk personal/regional/national soverignty. Everyone was afraid in 1946 that the US would end the world with nuclear bombs, but it turns out the US is going to destroy the world with narcisistic short term self interest. Sorry, I guess?

    No, they were all aledged criminals, when they were murdered by the police they had much less due process (trail, lawyers, cross examination, evidence), than rapey mc rapeface. However, in their cases they were at entitled to a trial; rapeface never was. This was a job interview. The least he could have done was to acknowledge the event, acknowledge that he drank a lot, doesn't remember it, move on a "accept the decision of the committee." Instead he got defensive, blatently lied and outed himself not as a neutral non-partisian judge, but as a fierce paristian fighter who still thinks the clintons are out to get him. So, no, like, not comparable at all.
  9. Solo

    Ranking of star wars movies is hard, since they are all cheesy at best, but saddled with 30 years of cultural significance. My review of both of the spin offs so far is that I think they were both better than the new sequels... Sticking with Solo; the movie was basically the story of a street urchin and his coming of age story to how he became a smuggler. If you look at it from that perspective, it did quiet well.

    *also, one of those 5 people is alive, and sitting on the highest court in the land. The rest are dead. So...
  12. The War on Terror

    To be perfectly honest, I thought that one of the lessons everyone learned in school was that putting people in camps is evil, driving people out of your country is bad, and walls should be celebrated when they are torn down, not cheered when they were put up.
  13. The War on Terror

    Islmaphobia is as alive and well now as it was in the fall of 2001. It is just as sad, disgusting, vial and counter-productive is as ever. But, you know, keep on banning people's religon for freedom or something.
