The Truth About Addiction, Addicts, Users, and Pushers:
Don't EVER pin your drug stereotypes on ME. I say we root these users and pushers one by one and crucify them for destroying humanity. Wake the F up. I'm not playing their poster boy or fashion victim. They need to put the horse in the right stable for once. Tell these users not to crawl back to my society after rehab and to just OD. Hey, they took the legal jobs, why don't they F'ing do something for once besides picking their asses. The legal lines were already drawn. I don't need these potheads or worse in my way. Don't sell me your denial businesses. You all start to F'ing quit. You aren't Poe, and his writing should be canceled. These nuts think they wake up after a week. Brain plasticity takes like 25 years. FU, and stop confusing psychiatry with psychology. I don't need their therapy BS. They think clean people are out there succeeding and falling for success stories and marketing tactics, or scrubbing their kitchen floors. FU, again. Drug "gas" lasts for years and years. They'll be out there super performing with a half-wit the whole time. One more and they're a "roont" plow like from the Gunslinger novels. I don't need this.
SHAME on Oliver for flipping off Jill Stein with such lighthearted arrogance! Of course the US can afford to cancel student debt, one way or the other. How many trillions are spent on catastrophic wars? The real issue is, how can we organize real opposition to the R/D Corporate War Party that is destroying any resemblence of a humane society and, in fact, actively pushing the entire human race towards extinction? This is what is at stake! And the abysmal failure of the Dems to represent their voters is what gave us Trump -
not third parties or "Russia". Remember, Oliver is paid lavishly by the same 0.1 procenters that benefit from this rigged system. He is a Fake Progressive. Go watch The Jimmy Dore Show instead!
My favorite president of all time won as an independent.
Fun Fact: The Democrats and Republicans used to be one party - aptly named the Democratic-Republican Party (1792). It was formed to oppose the Federalist Party (1789). The Federalist Party fell (1824), the Democrats split off (1824), and those who didn't like either option created the Anti-Mason Party (1828), later merged into the Whig Party (1840). Basically 1. Democrats and Republicans used to be on the same side and 2. There used to be a successful third party. If we did it once, we can do it again!
Your guys' third parties seem pretty pointless. They don't seem to have any chance of winning. Our (Ontario's) third party almost won in our recent provincial election. It was so close... so close... (Our premiere sucks lol)
Jill is literally a pushover agreeing with everything anyone says and Mr tongue is trying to win votes by being a comedian. Why didnt I watch the news back then to see this. Literally hilarious. By the way, prohibition? Who the hell tries to run for president with prohibition as one of your tools in your belt? Did he even get 1 vote? Everyone doesnt want prohibition. Either they love alcohol, like alcohol or dont drink and have friends or family that like to drink a bit. The only people that would vote for that are 5 year olds that dont know what alcohol is.
Hows it going thr with Trump?? You corporate hag. After grossly misleading people about Jill Stein's policies. You along with all the neoliberals deserve whats coming to you. Oh wait but you shitheads wont be the ones to suffer. It will be the people who are already down on luck. You know the ones who were actually wanting third party candidates.
Here grandmother who lost her grandson to a drone strike and wrote about it to the new York times. Are they a part the this conspiracy?
Let's check in on Libya. https://www.africanexponent.com/post/7974-hillary-clintons-role-in-libya-and-the-killing-of-gaddafi
This one's a bit more tame, but it still illustrates your goddesses character and the culture surrounding her whole campaign.
She was also anti legalization of weed, a blatantly racist law. She was anti gay until 2013. She thinks that the most powerful man in the world having sex with a 23 year old in the oval office isn't sexual harassment.
Clinton was never president, and you have a patently untrue idea of what a "regime" is. Also in general you just spat a bunch of bullshit right up there in the nonsense-scale with Benghazi and Uranium. Buzzwords debunked with a Google search (provided you steer clear of Infowars and the like.) You're okay with conspiracy and bullshit putting limp-dicked wannabe dictators in power, and that's okay.
Trump will be on his way out soon. Mueller's coming to town.
+JacksonJin and false indictments, yes or no, is Hillary Clinton a war hawk? (Hint, check her voting record) Yes or no, did Obama kill an American citizen in Yemen? (Hint, yes, it's verifiably true). Yes it no, under the Obama/Hillary regime did we go from being involved in 2 wars, to 7? (I hope you get the point now.)
Just face it. All you care about is the political sport, and if you have to look past innocent people in poor countries being killed, then you're ok with doing that. I'm not.
+JacksonJin sure. Jill Stein got 1% of the vote and she singlehandedly got Trump elected. An ignorant boob is an ignorant boob. And only an ignorant boob would think 1% of the vote is enough to swing an electoral college win.
I used to think John Oliver was cool, now I see him for the shill that he is. What we need most in this country is a real alternative to the two corporate bought parties. I voted for the lesser of two evils in 2016 and I will forever regret it. Never again. Jill Stein could save this country, but people like Oliver and his mindless crwod laugh at her. Such fools.
+JacksonJin This is mass murder.
This is good natured humor about arguably the most despicable crime known to man.
Here's a little bit about how much she's profited from the speeches she gives to those swell guys at the banks.
Quit making excuses.
Also worth noting in another comment you say Jill Stein "didn't have a snowballs chance in hell" to win, but Stein voters (1% of the vote if I'm not mistaken) are to blame for Hillary "super predators" Clinton's loss?
Let's be real. At the heart of the issue, is that Trump constantly says dumb shit.
Obama's record deportations are fine because he's a cool guy, who kids around with Zach galifianakis. Bills rapes and sexual predation is no big deal because he plays the sax. Hillary's war crimes and... You know... Everything else... Are easily ignored because she talks about Pokemon, and tells Charlemagne she likes hot sauce (because black people love hot sauce right? (Yuck)).
To think that Trump is anything but the end result of decades and decades if the lesser of two evils is delusion we can no longer afford.
It's time to grow up.
+JacksonJin You are part of the problem. You're so angry its off putting. I get it, I thought and still think the same way you do about Trump which is why I VOTED FOR HILLARY YOU DUMB FUCK! You were so busy foaming at the mouth that you didnt even pick up on that did you dipshit??
After having voted for her I realized it was a mistake becuase the entire system is broken. You can yell and pound your chest, but Dems are losing people right and left. Why? Because they're greedy corporate bastards, JUST LIKE THE REPUBLICANS. So you can get mad at me, but mybe you should check yourself and your party, before you go around demonizing people for getting fed up with the bullshit. Being an asshole isn't winning hearts and minds douche nozzle. As a matter of fact, you make the Republicans sound right when they say the left is now the closed minded side. So pat yourself on the back for helping another Dem see the light. Kinda the opposite of what you were hoping to accomplish, right?
See, I shouldn't have to dignify this bullshit with an answer, but it's actually satisfying to point out shit so blatantly wrong, so I'll oblige. Clinton? Acted within the law at all times, is STILL unable to be indicted for *anything* despite the GOP getting full control of the house for 2 years AND spending billions on investigations into her, and regardless stood firm as the only candidate who both understood global politics and didn't advocate using nukes for the hell of it. Trump's quote? "If we have 'em, why can't we use 'em?" You wanna talk about mass murder, let's get in on Trump trying to meet an unarmed *refugee* caravan with a full compliment of troops, spending taxpayer money to threaten innocent civilians fleeing firing squads. Let's talk about Pence, more than happy to try and follow up on his Anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and dehumanize entire groups of people, demonize and directly get them killed. Let's talk about Trump's asinine combat decisions, including attempting to provoke a nuclear war out of North Korea, over a pissing contest.
Contrast Clinton... Who did not advocate "mass murder." And was a perfectly fine choice if you weren't the kind of nutcase who believed Pizzagate was a real thing and charged into a pizzaria with a gun to get at their basement that doesn't exist.
Get your shit outta here, bub.
+JacksonJin you're just all over these comments blaming third parties for Hillary's spectacular loss aren't you? It's delusional at this point. Mass murder us the line. No amount if mean comments makes me vote for mass murder. Sorry Democrats.
Sure, jntc126, I'm sure people will believe your bullshit... Oh no, wait, people realized how shit abstaining from voting or voting for a third party was when 2 years of Trump turned out to be the actual worst and everyone acknowledged how rigged the system is to hand power over to republicans in absence of majority voting. As such? Fuck off.
Given that Bush never told the truth, it is unlikely his version of what happened on 9/11 is substantially correct. We still have not seen photos of how that great hole appeared in the side of the Pentagon.
Stein is essentially right re student debt. The Fed is independent in name only, its chairman and board are govt appointees and would be replaced if they vetoed a democratically mandated federal program. Get better informed (and funnier) writers, Mr Oliver.
It's 2018 and looking back it makes me so sad that we could have had a tiger for Secretary of State and a Lioness as Vice President and neither of those things happened. And I'm more sad about what did end up in the White House.
Yeah, that's the thing: Third Partiers always say that you shouldn't vote for the "lesser of two evils"- but they seldom make a convincing case for why they're not just another evil- you're just supposed to assume that because they're a third party, they're inherently better. But if you look closely, third party candidates usually SUCK. Seriously, the only reason Jill Stein wasn't the worst candidate in 2016 is because Donald Trump was running.
I wasn't in love with Gary being the nominee (as someone who leans libertarian) but if you're genuinely interested in the platform check out Larry Sharpe (he ran for governer of New York). Or even Ron Paul. A lot of people would like to paint libertarians as fringe lunatics. And maybe it is lunacy to want to end the wars, end the drug war, stop over policing, and lower taxes, but those all seem reasonable to me. See what you think, and if you don't agree, fair enough.
3:54 Female Pikachus have a heart-shaped end to their tale. Is that a male Pikachu in a dress? Is this a trans Pikachu? WE NEED ANSWERS! (Although there was an actual trans Pikachu in an episode of the show and she just taped a heart to her tail so maybe he’s metrosexual and he likes dresses?)
Joe Exotic was just charged with trying to hire a hit man to kill Carol Baskin, the CEO of a Big Cat rescue group in Florida!
Have a great day!
Fun fact: the pikachu wedding graphic shows a gay pikachu couple. Both of them were male because pikachu are sexually dimorphic, meaning the males and females look different. They differ in the shape of their tails, with females having a heart shape on the end of it. Therefore, the pikachu shown in the graphic were both male
I'm fine with libertarians, because they actually have different beliefs than republicans. But I think that the Green Party is throwing away their votes, considering the Democratic Party holds most of their views.
