now, i'm sure Trump thinks he can simply pay his way out of this like he does every other time he fucks up, but i doubt that's possible. morally, yes, something had to be done. in reality, is there a leader to replace Assad? is there a way for Sunni and Shia and Christians to get along? better yet, is there a way to simply eliminate organized religion period? and the minute that jackass commits troops on the ground to Syria, hopefully it means he will only be in office for one term. god knows, if the USA gets really involved in that, there will be no turning back.
and to think that dumb fuck has the nuclear codes right at the tip of his small fingers. and better yet, i just saw where Syria expected the missiles and moved everything and is already using the base again for bombing raids. so much for sending that tough message.
of course, as any genus knows, follow the money. the company that makes the missiles saw their stock fly through the roof today is now worth $5 BILLION more after the bombing. anyone want to guess or speculate which rich people owned some of that stock?
that ends the political portion of today's blog. now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.
The Big Bang Theory was hilarious last night.
Life in Pieces was great right up until some asshole came on the television to tell us why 59 Tomahawk missiles were fired into Syria. thankfully, i was able to see the ending on CBS.com this afternoon.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be VICE, NJPW and Real Time with Bill Maher.
the New York Yankees start a series tonight at Baltimore. i get a feeling these games will feel like softball games. first one to 10 runs will win.
i think my sister will be down here at some point over the weekend. part of me thinks she's coming down because she doesn't believe what's going on with mom and has to see it for herself. of course, i'm a cynical asshole as well.
i saw that the point guard that Dayton recruited from Minnesota, who ended up winning Mr. Basketball in the state, has asked for his release and wants to open back up his recruiting. he said Dayton will still be an option, which i'm going to take as bullshit more than anything. i'll give his chances of actually staying with Dayton somewhere less than 1%. so, here's the first real challenge for Anthony Grant. i know he started his face to face meetings with the recruits today. i'm sure that's why this video just happened to come out today as well.
i hope everyone has a great weekend. my thoughts are with everyone in Sweden. i would say you are in my prayers, but i'm old enough to know that shit doesn't work.
of course, i did see Tim Tebow hit a home run in his first minor league at bat yesterday. the guy he hit it off of was draft pick number 666 in 2015. that's some spooky shit right there.
but, yeah, to the lovely people of Stockholm, be safe.
be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.
peace and chicken grease...
