A team of superheroes fight uptight and/or wingnut supervillains such as The Puritan, The Teatotaler, The Rednecromancer (who is trying to reanimate the confederate army), and Officer Buzzkill of the DEA (who attacks medical weed dispensaries)

A young man encounters logistical problems related to the fact that, everywhere he goes, large numbers of crows congregate. In his childhood he didn't realize the scope of the problem because, attached to a military family, he rarely stayed in the same town for more than a year. However, after getting his own apartment and a job, he found that many structures in his home town cannot handle the weight of thousands of crows perching on them. The stench of crow corpses (caused by so many crows perching upon other crows that they are crushed) is also a problem. The crows, despite their interest, maintain a respectful distance from him, but coworkers and friends are not safe from building collapses caused by abnormal crow congregations, and nearby ecosystems are disrupted as all local crows migrate to a small area, ceasing to eat (or do much of anything, other than watch).
After a batch of a popular soft drink is recalled because of a production mistake causing it to have poisonously high levels of strychnine, some of the resulting deaths have unexpected consequences: the drink was extremely popular among a clique associated with a private bittorrent tracker, who have become revenants, their bloated corpses no longer paying rent but still using superhuman strength to defend their hoard of pirated movies from anyone who gets too close to their building.
Yikes, that makes sense, and because of the 24 hour news cycle attention span the Russian links could well be forgotten for a long time now.Who else is waiting for Trump's response to the CIA leak? I'm on the edge of my seat.
Incidentally, look at that timing!
Explain like I'm five, is it the signing of the new travel order or something else?
Wikileaks dumps a bunch of stuff that makes the CIA look incompetent and like bad guys, while the pressure is going up on Trump about his administrations links to Russian intelligence. Could just be coincidence...
Trump seems to think that the President can order wiretaps, and that Obama ordered wiretaps on him. Of course, Comey did in fact obtain a court order allowing surveillance on Trump's communications, but last I checked, Comey is not Obama.
Not only that, his tone is increasingly shrill and hysterical. At this point, I think it's 50/50 whether a special prosecutor gets him or a heart attack does.
So then Pence, who is absolutely incapable of leadership.
Yes. It doesn't seem like Pence is "in the loop" on Russia, given how Flynn and Trump gave him the runaround. I could be wrong, but that's the impression I get.
But then if Pence goes, it's Ryan, so I'm not seeing any good options here.
At this point, I would be pretty OK with anyone who is an actual politician with an actual policy or law background and some experience in governance. People who understand what laws are, and have an inkling of how foreign policy works.
ANYONE who is not totally insane would make me feel, at the very least, less like the US is being pushed rapidly into total destabilization.
https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/mar/01/mcdonalds-fight-for-15-memphis-police-lawsuitQuoteThe suit alleges that a campaign of harassment began after Memphis workers participated in a nationwide day of protest on 4 September 2014. Since then, police officers have repeatedly threatened workers with arrest during protests, at one point telling them they had “authorization from the president of McDonald’s to make arrests”. On “multiple occasions” officers “seemed to take direction from McDonald’s”, the complaint charges.
Last November, police officers stepped behind the counter of a fast-food restaurant to prevent workers from signing petitions calling for better working conditions, the protesters’ lawyers claim. They also allege that officers have enforced local permit laws on the predominantly black workers in the Fight for $15, while allowing protests by mostly white crowds to continue unabated.
