the real joke is that we actually sell fighter jets in a model not dissimilar to franchise ownership but that's another story

more seriously though it rules to live in a country that's so preoccupied with giving people here and elsewhere Hope and Legitimacy like they're shots on the house and a Denny's franchise respectively

not saying that if anyone in the Blue Angels popped a modafinil, did a line of blow, and flew at Mach 3 into Teddy Roosevelt's forehead on Mt Rushmore on July 4th they would for a millisecond become one with the universe and understand its oneness but I'm also not not saying it

you love to soar in a $100 million death machine over a city where people are dying of plague to Give Them Hope

I had completely forgotten creationists were still a thing until some guy responded to this on Facebook hollering about “transitional fossils,” felt like I’d been transported back to 2002 or something https://t.co/q0SIqAQlKm

I feel like many conversations about the cruelty of American life tend to boomerang back to someone going, "Well, it's not perfect, but don't you at least love and believe in America?" No. I don't. I really don't. We have potential, but for now, that's it https://t.co/TkouRtDFCi

pretty sparse crowd out here at this gun weirdo event outside the capitol in richmond. the speaker just cheekily asked how many people here are racists, expecting everyone to say none, and three guys in skull masks gave a hitler salute. https://t.co/HviBVYtz0C

Quoted @JonahDispatch

People dunking on the founding should appreciate that they’re taking a sledgehammer to the very soapbox they’re standing on. No founding, no free speech, no right to assemble, no due process. If you think that’s all just “white supremacy,” try protesting and carping without it.

"well actually, little people, you would not have rights if not for the fact that some assholes gave them to you, be gratefully deferntial to them, and me, their tedious messenger" is so much US conservative thought in a nutshell https://t.co/LtdK7vtKea
