Blaming your fellow soldiers years after the (never happened) fact IS dragging them through the mud. What an ass.

Why can't Substack keep track of visited links? Even 1??????

MOST times when I click a link then click back Substack does not return me to where I was. 1 freaking link!

I don't experience this on the vast majority of websites I visit. It's actually quite rare.

But on Substack it is not rare, it is very common.

Just a few minutes ago here I clicked the back button to go back 1 step and I saw two other destinations flash up on the screen vefore the 3rd and WRONG one showed up.

Good dyslexic doG Substack; either get some competent coders OR if you have competent coders let them do their job.

Do not ever navigate the page away from your current place in the comments. Always open any links in a new tab or window. This also applies to the "continue thread" dooickhey -- do not click it. Instead go to the timestamp [of] the comment above, which is actually a link, and right-click/long-click to open that link in new tab or window.

Better answer: *NEVER* connect one of these "smart" TVs to the internet. Use something else to stream to it.

I turned off the WiFi on my LG tv because it was constantly wanting to update something.

I don't need any updates to a tv!

Expand full comment

In my household's opinion, the UX of the LG smart TV is just not as good as the Roku I plugged into it.

Expand full comment

Oh yea - something else to worry about. We have a LG TV that’s had some weird navigation issues lately. Guess I better check the model.

Guy is a pretty bad liar, too.

Next time, chucklefuck, just do like Drumpf’s entire cabinet did multiple times, and go with ‘I do not recall’. It’s the US after all, and thanks to the piece of shit asshole party you belong to, it’s bullets whizzing everywhere. Drivebys, school shootings, people could probably totally buy you might have been shot like sixteen times and have simply lost track which bullet that was. Hey maybe several of them took out chunks of what you ever had for a brain giving you yet another excuse.

You’re running for the Pathological Liars Party. Up your game, kid.

Are they genuinely trying to lobby Donald Fucking Trump to not only act in good faith, but seemingly unaware that he’s a Russian asset?

This the same David Cameron? The one who broke the UK and then immediately quit his job? Hasn’t that pig had enough?

Brexit was practice for fucking trump.

Yes, but there's literally no level of failure hard enough to get you bounced out of the Tory party for good.

People have literally been sacked for espionage-flavoured dealing with foreign governments for money and walked back in the next month with a new ministerial post.

Even in the incredible event of someone shitting the bed so hard that the Tory party had to cut ties, they'd just saunter down and join Labour or the Lib Dems.

Once again....why is a rando candidate being courted to set US policy?

That should not be a thing, the press. That is VERY BAD THING the press, that the GOP is allowing this guy to dictate from them from beyond politics. Very bad!

The single most broken aspect of our modern political system is the fact the Republicans have weaponized the press’ need to believe parties are always acting in good faith and unwillingness to call them fucking liars directly to their face.

“I am against a thing my party has run on for 50 years because it makes me look bad”

I don’t believe you!

And people have been yelling at the press for this for at least a decade now and they absolutely refuse to listen or change in the slightest. No wonder they're going under.

*glances at unemployment numbers*

You know, the other day when I was getting gas, two chuckle fucks also getting gas in their gigantic trucks were complaining that they could not find good help "even offering 20 dollars an hour" because the "kids don't want to work these days"

This must be a memo that went out or something.

Never mind that places like McDonalds are now offering that, plus benefits, plus college money.

No, must be that people just don't want to work.

That, and people have been complaining that kids don't want to work since before we invented writing.

I read a newspaper article from the 50's that had people braying the same shit they scream now.

Expand full comment

The two oldest existing pieces of writing say these two things:

1. "Kids today are lazy and disrespectful."

2. "Don't buy copper from Ea-Nasir, he's a cheat."

2a. Plus he will mistreat your employees.

Expand full comment

ya know, I've been working since I was 11. First the paperroute, the only thing you can work legally until someone is willing to trust you to babysit. Then it was baby sitting until 15 which is the age you can get a real job. Then retail and food work and so on and as I remember those years, the one thing I clearly recall is:

Employers treat "kid" workers especially like shit.

Maybe it is that, I am thinking, that the kids are objecting to.

Another Santos?????

It makes more sense to lie about serving your country, as a member of a political party that talks up their love of the military (while doing nothing for actual soldiers), than to lie about the hundreds of things Santos lied about.

Expand full comment

he cares so much about his platoon getting dragged through the mud that he is willing to throw them under the bus for his political career

Expand full comment

I mean, he is lying about how he got his wound and basically blaming his fellows for it to cover up that he is a dipshit who shoots himself in the arm.

Would not put it past him

Who woulda thunk that Santos or Trump or Gaetz or _______ or ______ or . . . or _____ would be the face of the GOP?

WHO?

Expand full comment

oh I coulda told you something like this was happening 20 years ago. It is the logical conclusion to half a century, or more, of increasingly insular politics relying on hate and fear to retain power.

Granted, I thought the country would never have elected Trump, did not think we were that bad off, but that was a perfect storm: a disengaged electorate, massive interference by a foreign power (which had infiltrated our institutions no less) a complicit press media, and apathy on the part of the opposition because their candidate was not perfect enough.

So much THIS!!!!!

I did not think they get to the incredibly bold brazen megaphonic outright lieing and racism though.

doG dang I was too naive.

Expand full comment

When everyone was trying to blame everyone else for Hillary's loss, I was all like lol, it is ALL y'all. Learn from this.

I include myself in that too. Back then I did not rock the boat and kept the peace and tolerance and all that. As we do because we are afraid (of losing a relationship, of being shot, what have you, fear is fear).

After that, I decided that keeping silent was being taken for agreement and started speaking out. Got a few people mad at me, but they have learned by now that if they do not start it, I won't finish it.

Rather a win

Did you know the poet Dylan Thomas and Gen. Eisenhower met each other once? It was at a social event in their younger days, and Ike was short a few bucks to tip the valet, so he hit up Thomas, promising he would pay Thomas back. Only Ike never did.

This led to an incensed Dylan Thomas writing his most famous line, "Rage against the lying of the Dwight."
