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.
I think it is hilarious how much Hillary got accused of pandering. Jill Stein constantly panders to the conspiracy theory weird hippie demographic that thinks they are achieving something revolutionary by making a choice that frankly has the exact opposite of the intended effect. They helped a far-right wing reactionary gain power and they won't even admit it. They enabled Nazis and fascists to take over the mainstream of American politics, and Saint Jill is friends with the great Right Wing Authoritarian Mastermind himself- Vladimir Putin. She was always a pawn of the enemy. Anyone who supported her was a traitor.
The repubes just handed billions to the rich in tax cuts, Obama handed billions to banks and vehicle industries in debt forgiveness, and you are against students? John, you're are a sell out to corporate America on this one. Note, Hillary lost because she is a corporate dem no different than a republican, and the voters placed a non-political idiot as a president because they are tired of corporate repubs and dems who don't represent the people.
So, these are who the CIA picked to be the next presidential candidate.. after trump scares the shit out of the millennials?
This is terrifying. If there is no hope, then why vote? I can't understand your game, because you use the fucking media to send out information. Trumps only good point is bringing up everything is wrong with the world by example.
... reversing the power vacuum.. into a public autocracy fear... is there some method to the madness? Why are we all laughing about how we are all going to die if nothing happens?
After rewatching the part of this video about Jill Stein, it looks like it's about time to ditch this show. Thanks for exposing that you are a corporate democratic puppet, John. Luckily, I've found less biased sources to get my news from these days (yes, sources that I am in fact willing to question). I knew I should have ditched this show after watching the piece on online harassment but for some insane reason I didn't. But knowing that John is using the same easily debunked talking points and criticises Jill for being ACCURATE in her wording instead of showing blind dumb confidence is reason enough for me to ditch this show and tell everyone I encounter who watches it to do the same.
The focus of this show is clearly not to expose problems in society. It merely exposes the smaller problems to gain credibility, which John and his team will than use to look convincing when they are spreading lies and propaganda. Well John, sadly for you that only works temporarily. Because guess what, people remember. And when they for once don't decide to watch videos in the order you want them to watch, it becomes very clear that this is yet another propaganda machine. I hope this show is one of the first things HBO puts on the chopping block once corruption starts to get rooted out of the government in the next 2 decades. The process has already started. It's only a matter of time before shows like yours lose the reach needed to spread your propaganda, at which point people will no longer have a say in what parts of reality they are exposed to. They will be exposed to all of it, and will be able to see propaganda like this for what it is.
Eh. Either you enjoy the feeling of your fingers on the keyboard or you're hoping to create the illusion of intelligence through a slightly larger than usual quantity of sentences because that statement amounted to nothing. Vague points, no specific examples or support and would it have killed you to pull up Google for a word other than propaganda? Sheesh. it's like you base the credibility of your statement on how many times you can get away with saying it.
Thank you, John Oliver, for being willing to buck the far left by stating the basic facts about monetary policy. There are plenty of Paul-tards and Stein-tards and Trump-wad extremists out there who try to sell us utopia just like Hugo Chavez, but the truth is more staid, plaid, and generally boring. Big fan of your show, please continue to be equal opportunity in calling out BS (on both sides of the aisle).
why didn;t this include anything about Bernie Sanders? I know he stepped out of the race but still....he was closer to right than any of the 4 you mentioned. This just looks like you are saying 'if you are going to vote for one of the two 3rd party candidates because you can't stomach either Trump or Hilary, then think again - all you got is these two.....deal with it from there'.
At least the green candidate wanted to deal with issues that matter and wasn't a racist, orange, manchild.. She wanted to free people from student debt and he wanted to build a wall. Obviously Jill was a better choice, there is no comparison.
1. Trump has not yet made peace with North Korea. The Korean War is still going on.
2. The revitalization of the economy post-recession was carried out under the Obama Administration. It has nothing to do with Trump. In fact, Trump has made it worse with his attempt at starting a trade war.
3. Lowering taxes? You mean, for the rich, or have I missed something?
4. Yes, but he’s done it in possibly the worst way possible. He also cracked down on legal immigrants. This has quickly become a problem, especially in regards to our relationship with some of our allies (like Mexico and Iraq).
5. His flaming and nonsensical rhetoric has alienated our allies and tarnished our image. He said the Scottish were pro-Brexit, he shamed Merkel, he’s made racist comment about Mexico ( _”This judge is unfit to judge me automatically because of his Mexican heritage.”_ for one) he’s repeatedly criticized NATO and questioned its usefulness (which could jeopardize our position in Europe) and he’s pushed his _“America First”_ policy, going against our stance that _“The world must be safe for Democracy.”_ Nations have come to the conclusion that we can no longer lead the free-world, and have begun looking for an alternative, such as Germany.
6. His solution to the school shooting problem is completely ridiculous and shows a complete lack of understanding about the shooters themselves.
7. His crackdown on the media is almost dictatorial in mentality. Having the FCC shut down sources based on the validity of their news is a violation of Free Speech, and could be easily abused (like it was under President Adams.)
8. He doesn’t seem to fully understand our government. For example, he once said _”I have not yet spoken with the President of Puerto Rico.”_
9. He’s a notorious liar.
10. He’s repeatedly pushed the idea that the Mueller investigation is biased and must be shut down (when he has nothing to fear if he’s not guilty.)
11. He’s used whataboutism, an old Soviet tactic that is incredibly dangerous.
12. He pulled us out of the Iran Nuclear Deal, allowing Iran to renuclearize and potentially alienating a whole generation of pro-West children.
I could go on, and on. But let’s hear your response first. Please reply to all of my points.
As a Pokemon fan I would like to point out that both Pikachu’s that are getting married are males because the one in the dress has a regular tail instead of a heart tail that females Pikachus have, I am proud that you are in support of Homosexuality unlike Game Freak and Nintendo who produce these games.
You completely missed lead many people. Jill Stein is a wonderful person with a great deal to offer us. And you called her wacky. That is a very shameful shameful way to debase a human being that was the only anti-war candidate. She was the only candidate who was for universal healthcare and free/affordable college. How dare you think that it’s OK to do that when so many Americans and so many people around the world are suffering because of the status quo.
I'm glad I live in a country that has three representatives of parliament. Not just one president is chosen, in winning - three are decided by votes. The third party you could vote for; is just to make Americans hopeful, which many Americans know is simply a show.
What a grotesque piece of propaganda. Everything in it is flagrant lie. YES, quantitative easing IS a magic trick. And YES, the Fed does fabricate money out of thin air, using it to buy these garbage derivatives before handing it over to the major primary lenders to buy back their own stock and pay themselves huge bonuses and salaries. John Oliver is the Sean Hannity of comedy, a corporatist scumbag liar.
Great job bashing third party canidates John, but then you work for a propaganda agency that pays you lots of money in order for you to convince the public into thinking that they only have two choices. As long as both parties are corporate parties, the public is going to end up with a corporate government which will work only to increase the wealth for those in government and the corporations that own them.
"Strategic doubt" is the primary tool of every politician ever. Say the least and hope the other candidate screws up. With only two major parties, the US will forever be deadlocked in a fatal tug of war where no one has to say anything other than comment on vague feel good social issues.
Not sure why he decided to focus so heavily on negative aspects of these candidates rather than the positives. If you really wanted to seriously talk about them then why not bring up pros and cons instead of just cons. He quickly names a few policies he agrees with and then jumps right into one or two policies he doesn't and tears them apart the entire segment. If you guys truly cared you could have made this video 10 minutes longer(such as the vaccine video) and went into depth about the positives as well. But you just wanted to throw 3rd parties aside, well done on that front.
John Oliver is a pet rat of the 1%. In this video, he sells his bosses' idea that spending $4 trillion to bail out Wall St is a good thing, but only a crazy person would want to spend $1 trillion on a student loan bailout.
.....Remember, people: the enemy often wears a smile.
Gary E. Johnson is as neoliberal as one can be.
He had planned to cancel all income taxes, corporate taxes and the IRC.
So allmost the entire income of the USA would be gone and all the spending for public services too.
The only tax he likes is an excise, which hits low incomes the most.
And the only expenditure he likes is military which he will keep at about 57% of todays spendings.
*That's the "wet dream" of the rich.*
Almost 0 taxes for them.
High taxes for those who actualy have to work for income. About 10% of GDP spend on police and military.
We got this before. But we got rid of this shit a couple hundred years ago.
Nothing about this idea is new (neo) and it hasn't much in comon with freedom (liberal).
*I couln't belive that it's legal to promote slavery in the USA again.*
*It is not.*
That's the point!
But they couldn't call their agenda "be-born-rich-or-go-to-hell" so they call it liberalism. Where you can buy everything if you got the money. Neoconservative also sounds nicer than faschist.
To be fair, Garry was going for the libertarian party colors with the ties. He wants to be chill and not a bigwig who stands over the people. I don’t like him as a personal libertarian, but in politics if you want to succeed you gotta fake it.
To spite some of the 3rd party candidates being bat-shit, in hind sight they were so much more sane than what we currently have, it is not even funny. John, I am a little sad, because you bashed on real people running because they felt called, instead of rich folks running to make more money...
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
