It's time.

Already. 

Stop screaming, you're upsetting the goldfish.


Kicking off this horrorshow, Bernie Sanders misses an excellent chance to shut his big fat spoiler face:

Trump also now has legal incentives to fuck with the election as much as possible, since, in practice, sitting Presidents are almost immune from prosectuion.

And boy are there a lot of prosecutions coming his way.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

This struck me is pretty weird. Of particular interest to me is the bit about the "affirmations" that the Democrats want.


https://www.npr.org/2019/03/04/700121429/bernie-sanders-files-to-run-as-a-democrat-and-an-independent?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_term=nprnews&utm_content=20190304&fbclid=IwAR29-5sfYHCks2JuZxrVsi23Dww4UiTH6HPHu61ZUVcvXTYkMg3P8AUxCIU

The affirmations don't apply in this case.  The blowhard is running for president as a democrat and for the senate as an independent.  The affirmations only say he will run as a democrat in the presidential campaign.

Doesn't change the fact that he's a bastard spoiler, though.

I don't think he's going to win the nomination. There's still a fair number of fanatical Bernie fans out there, but I don't think he's going to get the nomination for Democratic presidential candidate out of them. Mainstream Democrats have already been Berned once. Of course his Fanatics will pick up their ball and go home if they don't get their way instead of helping to unseat Trump.

I'm not saying Trump is going to win, but I'm going to brace myself and prepare as though he will, because the fucking jizz mop just might. God dammit  :argh!:

If he looses, it seems likely that the nuttier members of his base will finally completely lose their minds. People are already talking about another civil war in America, and not just the youtube crazies.

That would be like trying to put out a dumpster fire with a truckload of live chickens.

In the Darkness even the Truth is in doubt. What is needed is the kicking of some asses! That and a viable Democratic candidate folks will unite behind...

Actually fuck it. Bring on the chickens! Gritty has a modest cult following. Mister Rogers has an even bigger cult following. We need a light to Rally around. Something or preferably someone True and Good. Bernie is not true and good despite his best intentions all he really has is ambition and a platform that pays for colleges with 'taxpayer money'. We need the second coming, a fucking Christ figure. Chaos magic won't save us. Nothing will. But I'm in the mood to cause chaos and dance in the ashes... No, too angsty. I'm in the mood to watch a shit ton of flaming chickens run around The Neighborhood!

If there is a civil war it won't be a formal one like the great civil war was. It will be geurillas by night and Psychopaths opening fire in broad daylight. I don't see the US military Schisming entirely because they lost a shity commander. I do see the culture wars becoming even more bloody than they currently are.

Idk, from an outsiders perspective, American discourse is so hyperbolic and non-sense because commentators are so needy for attention and ad-revenue, and the need to keep the audience at the edge of their seat thru ever escalating means.

Like, what I do have noticed is this "revenge-ism" attitude between Democrats and Republicans, in which actions dont seem to follow pragmatic objectives but more of "OH THIS WILL SHOW THEM" under a logic of pettiness.

If this exact trend continues escalating, i could imagine a real civil war no earlier than 2028 and i couldnt imagine it going on for too long with all the control and surveillance the government has over the population.

It's more that we're just plain bad people that have had it too good for too long.
