Thoughts?

Let's be real, it's been more of a parsnip point

FoolofaTook 10-25-2018 01:07 PM

Parsnip, sage, rosemary and thyme.

Their called freedom fries, you goddamned terrorist.

Zer0 Hour 10-25-2018 01:22 PM

LOL, Freedom Fries. From the early days of the "GOP Has Really Gone Batshit" era. I remember when they started warning people to watch out for exploding beer kegs on the Fourth of July.

Yeah, it was part of George W. Bush's "We're always under attack!" propaganda campaign. Fuck that asshole forever.

Eh, let's not forget that Dubya bullshitted this country into a war that killed half a million people, and he was also instrumental in getting Judge Rapeface confirmed a couple weeks ago, working behind the scenes to get senators to vote yes. Don't get me wrong, Trump is a criminal, a traitor, a sexual predator, and a puppet for Russia, but Bush is also a POS.

Mals Marola 10-25-2018 01:51 PM

GW was absolutely worse than Trump. Dons fans are worse than the man himself (not to say the man himself is particularly good but I wouldn't say that about George W)

FoolofaTook 10-25-2018 03:23 PM

yeah i suppose those two wars were a lot worse than anything this dickwit has pulled off (yet)

redbreegull 10-25-2018 03:26 PM

Trump's stupidity, ignorance, and lack of political capital have prevented him from doing most of the awful things Dubya was capable of, but he has also been able to do things like intern babies so it's kind of a hard one to work through

FoolofaTook 10-25-2018 03:30 PM

i don't follow politics at all. is there any chance of him actually building that fucking wall he promised?

FoolofaTook 10-25-2018 03:30 PM

when i saw that shit in bethlehem... oh man. what an awful feeling.

smashingjj 10-25-2018 03:38 PM

A turnip point without any doubt. Burek?

I thought this came form France not being on board with the Iraq war so we had to ban anything called "French _______"

Yeah, that is what it was. But itís all relative. Bush and the GOP built up this culture of fear, predicated on the idea that we were under constant attack and if you expressed any doubt about the way they were handling things, you were the enemy. So you know, the French and the Dixie Chicks were suddenly the enemy.

Itís those kind of authoritarian tactics that gave us Trump.

NovaFritz 10-26-2018 12:12 AM

Remember Billyís two messages of that era?

Zwan - love conquers all, peace + God, heartsongs
Zeitgeist - something confused about celebrity culture and death?

Zer0 Hour 10-26-2018 10:06 AM

I thought Billy also had some sort of half-assed political message with Zeitgeist too. Like, paranoia will make you believe someone is going to blow us up, so ignore all news and hide away in a recording studio in Scottsdale for six months and record a bunch of shitty songs. Or something like that.
