No, weren't you listening? Prince John from Prince John!

But yeah, she probably meant Prince John from Robin Hood because all these rightwing fuckheads like to imagine they are in a totalitarian state where as soon as they have a scrap of money to their name, Joe Biden personally comes to kick them in the crotch, take their money, and give it to a Black person.

I think she meant Prince Charles, spewed out Prince John, realized that wasn't a real person and then her tiny brain short-circuited on live TV.

I know folks don't like Nate (I'm not a fan, either, for the most part) but yeah... go get 'em, boys!

Itís pretty clearly some kind of Jurassic World fan art, though with the internet, itís hard to say if Blueís being portrayed as a pet or part of a throuple.

I was confused too. I thought that there were religious people out there that think humans and dinosaurs coexisted on the earth at one point. No atheist thinks that, we believe in evolution, so what is this meme even supposed to suggest? I have no idea.

For one, Blue is over the sheets, so...

It kind of smacks of "ignore the greedy corporate oligarchs over here because at least they aren't bombing you, just bankrupting you."

It's a rather clever jab at inter-office politics, don't you think?

I can see that.

Eventually we'll be an EV society, but those vampires will have already found another way to suck the money out of us.

Nope, Nate's a dummy.



The orchestra decided that maybe they didn't want to play the musical piece composed in celebration of the Russian army's glorious victory. It's got nothing to do with Tchaikovsky's views on Putin, or on reflexive anti-Russian bigotry.

Nate's become a super blowhard thanks to social media. I'll check out their polling, but beyond that, he has nothing to say that I'm interested in hearing.

I took the meme to mean "let's not say this war in Ukraine sucks because gas prices are going up" as the FIRST fucking thing Americans do.

​​​​​​​I guess I didn't read it that way. I read it as "care less for your own problems and more for your neighbors". But I can certainly see y'alls interpretation now.

Fair enough. However...it clearly says. "try feeling grateful that you aren't..." , which to me implies your problems aren't as bad compared to others who right now have it worse and are suffering because that could be you.
