Quote from: http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/03/what-george-w-bush-really-thought-of-trumps-inauguration.htmlThe inauguration of Donald Trump was a surreal experience for pretty much everyone who witnessed it, whether or not they were at the event and regardless of who they supported in the election. On the dais, the stoic presence of Hillary Clinton — whom candidate Trump had said he would send to prison if he took office — underlined the strangeness of the moment. George W. Bush, also savaged by Trump during the campaign, was there too. He gave the same reason for attending that Bill and Hillary Clinton did: to honor the peaceful transfer of power.

Bush's endearing struggle with his poncho at the event quickly became a meme, prompting many Democrats on social media to admit that they already pined for the relative normalcy of his administration. Following Trump's short and dire speech, Bush departed the scene and never offered public comment on the ceremony.

But, according to three people who were present, Bush gave a brief assessment of Trump's inaugural after leaving the dais: "That was some weird shit." All three heard him say it.

It's like watching someone try to guess my password based on what he sees lying around in my office.

A testimonial from the depths of /r/discordian:

Quote from: Chinagreenboring
PD.com forums: a disorganized echo-chamber full of concordian, Greyfaced radical left-wing nutjobs who honestly believe they can take down imaginary Nazis by distributing flyers. They are highly-suspicious of all newcomers and hostile to almost everyone, including themselves. The only thing they don't take seriously is Discordianism.

Totally not butthurt tho  :lulz:

So you would not or you maybe would? The way I see it, there is no choice. Something has to be done, and if it means breaking the law to do it then the law is wrong.

It's the reason exploitation and atrocities have happened over and over again. People won't realise they need each other, until things get really bad, and only then will they look back and realise that they had the opportunity to head this off at the pass.

There are 13 states writing laws to re-illegalize Gay marriage...Anticipating a friendly supreme court, given that Trump's likely nominee is a guy who thinks homosexuality should carry the same criminal penalties as pedophilia.

The left's response:  bicker about whether the 3 million woman march was trans-exclusive because they wore pink hats in mockery of something Trump said.

There is no fucking hope.

Also, I'd like to announce the first release by Donald., a political punk band I helped start.

Our first song and video is called "Sad."  It's only a minute and a half long, so watch it.

We also have a Facebook page.

I like it!

Alien versus Aliens and Terminator versus T2 are the film world's version of debating politics and religion.  :lol:

I've only ever seen 3 movies that I actually considered scary, and Poltergeist doesn't really hold up when you watch it again now.

Play Misty For Me is my sleeper pick for HOLY FUCK TERRIFYING, possibly (probably) because of a lifetime of ignoring Rule #3.

But the scariest movie of all time? Fuck you if you don't think Aliens is some paralyzingly frightening shit. I saw that movie in the theater when it came out (I was 9 and my mom thought I was seeing some dumb kid movie) and I swear I didn't sleep with the lights off for a week. And it's the only movie that's possibly gotten even scarier as I get older because there are so many LAYERS of horror there and the best ones aren't even comprehensible to a little kid.

I've never heard of Play Misty For Me, but I'm definitely going to check it out. I'm always up for anything that might scare me. Thank you for bringing the film to my attention!

Damn, Waffle. I hope whatever is wrong gets fixed quickly and painlessly.

Eveery time I've heard someone mention Are You Afraid of the Dark?, the episode with the pool is always, always, ALWAYS mentioned as the one that fucked them up the most, because that was a hellaciously fucked up episode.  That show was supposed to be for kids?

I absolutely love Are You Afraid Of The Dark?. The episode that messed me up the most as a kid was the Tale of the Shiny Red Bicycle, the one about the kid's friend who got trapped in a river, drowned, and then haunted him. That episode is why I'm apprehensive around dams.

Funny enough though, a while back I watched the episode again to see if it was as scary as I remembered it, and it's actually a nice story about friendship.

Have you watched R.L. Stine's A Haunting Hour?  A lot of the episodes come close to being on the same level as AYAOTD. Some of the episodes are generic kid/teen horror, but a lot of them have fantastic/scary fridge logic that left me with the same impresion as AYAOTD, as far as not believing they'd do that in a kid's/teen's show.

Quote from: Cain on March 13, 2016, 05:00:37 PMTrump has threatened to send people to attack Sanders' rallies,

While I understand the "an eye for an eye" mentality, if Trump wanted to play it smart he should lay low and accept this gift that Bernie's supporters are trying to give him.

Is there any evidence at all that the people showing up are Sanders supporters?

MSNBC has an article on who organized the protests in Chicago and how they organized it, if you have some time to kill.

from what i hear a percentage of the protesters are carrying bernie sanders signs

The Guardian has reported that is the case:

QuoteSigns in support of Sanders were visible around the protests in Chicago on Friday night, and the senator defended the protesters. "What our supporters are doing is responding to a candidate who has in fact in many ways encouraged violence," he said.

Of course, there's a big difference between that and what Trump is claiming.

I think I prefer Trump's version of reality, that Bernie is a shadowy puppet master ordering his brownshirts to do his bidding, just because it's such a hilarious idea.  I mean we're talking about Bernie fucking Sanders here, a man with the aggressive nature of a teddy bear.  What would that scenario look like?  "Listen, my friends.  Okay.  I want you to take these government subsidized baseball bats, okay?  Go to Trump's rally and break up his supporters' kneecaps like I'm going to break up these big banks once elected!  And don't hold back, okay?  Remember that once I'm elected they'll get free healthcare so go to town on them like I'll go to town on Wall Street!"
