Crowder, Straight pride parades, Folau

 
Steven Crowder is a comedian, but personally I think he can more accurately be described as an asshole. A journalist complained that he was getting constant gay slurs from Crowder and this violated YouTube's terms of service, which it does. YouTube since responded claiming it doesn't but offered no further clarification. I think it's a case of selective enforcement. The channel has since been demonetized; if he was doing nothing wrong why demonetize him? I believe that YouTube has the right to decide what is on its platform (conservatives don't btw) but the journalist should look into harassment laws and if appropriate take action against Crowder or YouTube. Crowder does punch down comedy and pokes fun of the powerless; he once imitated a person in a wheelchair and does similar to trans people. Comedy usually punches up because if you do that you're not being a complete asshole.
A few idiots in Boston want a straight pride parade, because, they want to be victims and/or deeply insecure about their sexuality. Sure that's not the official reason, but read between the lines! I don't mind a straight pride parade but I don't see a reason for it. Nobody is stopping people from being straight, people aren't bullied for being straight, laws aren't passed against straight people, straight sex is not banned in some countries, neither is straight marriage. As Cenk Uygur says some people can't wait to be victims. Boohoo we don't have a straight parade. If you think you need a straight parade, you're probably not straight.

Nobody is told they're going to hell just because they're straight.

An (probably closeted) Australian rugby player Israel Folau is suing because he keeps telling gay people they're going to hell on social media and was fired. Firstly many organizations have good character clauses, he broke that though honestly those things are just a catch all for anything controversial and is selectively enforced. I don't like organizations dictating what people can or can't say in private. However it's not exactly private if you said it on social media to thousands of followers that you only have because of your sport. The majority of them only give a shit about him because of his career. Some of them might be struggling GLBT and telling them they're going to hell might not be something they need. Do organizations including corporate sponsors have to deal with homophobia? Shouldn't they be allowed to exercise their rights not to support someone? It also escapes them from further bad press and boycotts; if something rises to that level something ruled by capitalism would have to act, which by the way is the free market at work. The free market has decided the guy is an asshole.

Australia, Sleepy Joe Biden, Strategy

 
The right wing won the recent election in Australia. According to a commentator I follow the Labor leader was piss weak and stood for nothing other than we're not the tories. It is clear that the strategy is a loser. Didn't work for the Democrats in 2016, didn't work for NZ Labour in 2008. We're not the tories isn't a viable election strategy and does not inspire people to vote for you.

I don't want to give credit to Orange Buffoon but maybe he's on to something with the nickname Sleepy Joe Biden. Joe Biden believes he can work with Republicans when he gets in. Was Biden in a coma throughout Obama's entire presidency? Republicans didn't let Obama do anything. The right-wing solution to health-care got NO votes from the right-wing party, although many Democrats lean right-wing by international standards, it got NO Republican votes. Obama kept reaching out, the Republicans kept punching him in the face. The same thing will happen. Biden is not great on policy but this also shows a deep lack of understanding of the political climate in the USA today, and hell the political climate in the last decade.

Nancy Pelosi said that she'll pray for Orange Buffoon after he stormed out of an infrastructure meeting. While this was wonderfully patronizing Ben Dixon had the best commentary; this sounds like thoughts and prayers after a massacre, they do nothing. Nancy: Don't pray, impeach!

If I was her I would get every Democrat to go on TV and say constantly he's a criminal (because it's fucking true) then I would start impeachment proceedings, go through the documents that would be uncovered because of the inquiry. Then I would likely have a new set of crimes, the Democrats will just repeat criminal criminal criminal throughout. If the Republicans don't convict at least his name will be toxic. This is how you fucking do politics!

Hillary Clinton partly lost because they turned her name to shit! They investigated the shit out of her, even though the investigations found nothing. You already have an investigation that uncovered crimes and it only scratched the surface. Stop being so fucking weak and enforce the law!

Subpoenas, Facebook bans

 
Over the past few weeks it has basically been Democrats subpoenas, Buffoon administration, Buffoon administration ignores subpoena. William Barr has been held in contempt of congress/kind of/but not really, which doesn't go far enough. They should jail every administration official that doesn't comply with the s, throw them all in jail until they do what's legally required of them.

Buffoon Jr has been subopened by the senate which is an interesting twist as it is republican controlled. I predict it will be a bunch of soft ball interviews, but I could be wrong.

Facebook banned a bunch of horrible people and misfits. Someone that says Sandy Hook was fake (or an inside job, I don't remember) went on the Alex Jones show and said she wasn't a conspiracy theorist. LOL if I was going to say that I wasn't a conspiracy theorist the last possible place that I would announce it would be on Alex Jones. How ridiculous. I don't think that you should be be banned from online platforms just for being a conspiracy theorist. On the other hand saying that grieving families are actors is slanderous. Conspiracy theorists sometimes are a public nuisance when they convince people that climate change is a hoax. Private corporations are about profits, they are not responsible for enforcing free speech. If they get sued because they allow slander that will eat into their bottom line and that is a problem for them. Government regulations may fix this but ironically some right-wingers that want to say racist and conspiratoral nonsense hate regulations. They need to decide what they hate more corporate censorship or government regulations. Corporations are just not going to allow people to post everything, clearly that idea is just ideological and does not translate into the real world, much like their economic ideas. Another option would be to crowd fund a platform that's hosted in Panama or somewhere similar that ignores laws.

Meuller, Buttigieg, Biden, Terrorism

 
A redacted version of the Mueller report is out, I changed my mind. I did say there was no collusion during the election, but this is only part of the story. The Tower meeting proves the intent to collude by Buffoon Jr and possibly others, which is still a crime. Also Buffoon tried to obstruct justice about ten different times, again this is still a crime even if the idiot was unsuccessful. My conclusion remains the same, lock this fucker up. Actually scrap that, lock his son up too.

Pete Buttigieg is running for president, he has fuck all policy (because he's a corporatist) and should be ignored. As mayor he didn't do anything about racist police officers. He's for taking big donor money. He recently spoke badly about Bernie Sanders supporters. Hillary Clinton was also dismissive of Bernie supporters, that didn't work out for her. I've noticed a similar trend as the 2016 Republican primary, the media picks their favourite for a few weeks then whoever fizzles out. His answer for health-care is the public option, which is not great but meh. The problem with that is that health-care companies just push the really expensive people to the government plan which makes it less efficient than universal health-care. He doesn't believe in universal college. His attitude is neoliberal and short sighted as once you take away the debt people have more money to spend in the economy which will grow it. I am NOT a bleeding heart liberal; people annoy me. I am just for smart economics instead of the neoliberal crap which doesn't work for most people Despite being gay he gets a NO from me because his ideas suck.

There's countless other candidates that I haven't reviewed and probably would be pointless to review. I'll do one occasionally.

Joe Biden announces, I already hate his campaign. His announcement video sucked, no policy at all. I just got he's not Orange Buffoon from his video. His video felt empty of an actual vision apart from let's go back to when we weren't racist. Terrible ad, terrible candidate!

A terrorist attack happened over easter in Sri Lanka. There is not much to say, terrorism is horrible, ISIS is horrible. I believe that Orange Buffoon claimed victory over ISIS a few weeks ago, well I guess he was mistaken. Sounds like Bush's mission accomplished moment. The US needs to employ smarter strategies against fighting terrorism. The death toll is over 300. It's a tragedy for the country and the people involved.

Buffoon and Joe Biden

 
Buffoon fired the homeland security head, apparently because she wasn't willing to break the law as much as Buffoon would have liked. On the one hand I say let the bastard break the law, perhaps he'll get impeached. On the other hand he has broken "many many" laws so who knows if that will happen.

The head of the secret service has been fired because a Chinese spy was found at Mar-a-Largo. Not sure why the secret service is responsible for a private company. (update, these things are not connected) The entity that hired the spy is obviously run by dumb people. All they had to do was pay $200,000 for a membership, perhaps they didn't have the money. I know I don't.

There's another Chinese woman selling access to Buffoon, she had ladies of the night in her last line of work I believe. I think she is under investigation. If all parties were consenting, I don't really care but it is one more publicly blunder for the Buffoon administration and it is amusing.

Joe Biden is under fire for making women uncomfortable. Firstly this is not new news. He has a reputation of being creepy old Joe! Considering Buffoon has about 6 assault allegations against him, well if nobody like Joe can be in office, Buffoon must resign immediately. Do we have a deal. Biden was joking about the situation earlier in the week which angered some parts of the left. Bottom line: nobody's accusing him of assault unlike Buffoon so if it is Biden vs Buffoon, vote for Biden. However Biden is too centrist for me, so I hope that he loses the primary if he enters.

Orange Buffoon, Mueller report, Anger, Leaving Neverland

 
I just watched a clip from Cenk Uygur about Buffoon may be unwell because he said his father was born in Germany when he was born in the US. Two problems with this. Buffoon is mentality unwell, no shit! Second problem, this isn't the first time he said this. I believe he said this in the Art of the Deal book and on his UK visit. So this alone doesn't indicate deterioration. You're not going to convince me otherwise. He said more crazy things, wind power causes cancer, republicans lost the midterms because of forged votes, Mueller report had oranges. You didn't misread the last one. Perhaps that would indicate deterioration. The other stuff is typical crazy Buffoon.

Mueller didn't find collusion before the election; this doesn't mean that a deal wasn't made after the election. This also means I was right all along. Democrats should have impeached him before the Mueller report on other charges. They still should impeac. He committed obstruction of justice clear as day, plus the illegal hush money payments, several constitutional violations, fraud before he was election. How many crimes can this guy commit before anybody in Washington holds him accountable? This is a serious question. I'll just quote what Orange Buffoon said about the central park five after they were found innocent. He "must be guilty of something".

I still haven't learned the last name of the Christchurch terrorist and I hope it stays this way. Luckily people have stopped posting pictures of him on social media. I will not be reading his manifesto either. The justice system will deal to him no matter what, there's no point getting angry. Anger is fine if you can change things or entertain people. Neither applies to this situation. There's also no point of view or arguments in this situation. So the terrorist is best forgotten about and the focus must be on the victims.

I did watch Leaving Neverland and I left with one conclusion, the parents were idiots. One quote stuck with me "He could go anywhere, he could do anything, but he wanted to spend time with my son". That sounds like a major red flag to me. The parents were idiots. I am not victim blaming, the parents were not the victims. Of course Jackson should have faced justice, but he was rich, so that didn't happen. It was mostly an one sided movie but there's also the settlement, multiple other court cases, medical book material found at his home. It's sad to think a guy that I admired in my younger days did those things. I guess that's life.

Christchurch Terror Attack

 
There has been a terror attack in Christchurch, New Zealand where I live. The target were Muslims. I don't feel like addressing anything else. I can say I think the government has the right solution. Luckily they appear to be following the Australian solution rather than the US which frankly offers no solutions whatsoever so massacres keep happening. Luckily we don't have the NRA buying off politicians. Nobody needs access to military grade weapons except the military. I don't care about your sport or duck shooting. People claim they're being punished due to the attack. Are you being punished by the government not allowing you to have tanks or nuclear weapons? I know they're taking it away but the fact is countries without assault rifles don't have these types of attacks. For me the real question is why after the dozens of massacres in the US those weapons were still able to be purchased here? Some of those lives could have been saved. You can't kill as many people with other types of people with other types of weaponry, that's just a fact. Also this is proposing a solution, not politicizing a tragedy to be clear. I don't accept people are politicizing a tragedy by proposing solution. If you don't have a solution it would be more likely to happen again.

The terrorists will probably claim Muslims are the violent ones. This is not true. Many groups have their radical fringes; they do not speak for everyone in the group. The only violent ones here are the white supremacist terrorists.

I was once accused of defensive of Muslims. I am not defensive of Muslims, I am just not a bigot.

The problem is that people believe things about the Muslim community that are just not true. People prefer to hate than fact check and their ideas accumulate. Sometimes it leads to this.

Earthquakes, a terrorist attack, what's next? Christchurch again needs to heal. Also frankly you could better do this by staying away from Facebook comments.

Michael Jackson

 
Some people believe that Michael Jackson's music should be gone because of his alleged abused. I say alleged but honestly I am just saying alleged for the sake of saying alleged. I believe he was a predator. I never believed he was, but after medical book material with graphic images was found at his home, I really don't see any other explanation, sorry. Plus he did settle a court case. If you don't believe he's a predator, you probably have a bad case of blindness due to emotional attachment. I don't want to argue with people online about this, I don't care what you believe. Maybe I am wrong. Allegations go back 25 years, and that is my problem with this. Suddenly they decided to take away his music? Huh? It's possible that the combination of the documentary and the modified culture lead to this. Perhaps it is a sign of culture evolving.

If you've been a victim of abuse I can understand why people celebrating such a man make you uneasy.

However the music industry full of creeps and abusers; mostly to a lesser extent than Jackson's allegations. The sad reality is that you'd exclude a lot of artists depending of what threshold you start the acceptable level of behaviour.

Thinking about it objectively this doesn't really affect my life and doesn't really hurt anybody, so whatever. I don't really care if he isn't on the radio but would point out they should have done that when he was alive for the sake of consistency. I also see why people may think they're punishing the fans. Ultimately I have better things to worry about than whether Michael Jackson is allowed on the airways.

North Korea, Michael Cohen, CGT, Right wing leaders

 
Commander Bone Spurs is in Vietnam (finally) he has done a deal with Kim Jong-un. I use the term deal loosely as it asserts North Korea will scale back nukes but the US is not going to verify anything. In other words it's nothing. My best interpretation is that the US government knows that North Korea will not give up their nukes so they wanted to do a deal, without doing a deal. Farron Cussins speculates that Orange Buffoon just wants to build towers in North Korea; although I really don't think that would be worth his while. He bankrupted casinos and tried to sell Vodka to Russians, even if it is bad business sense, that is totally his M.O.

Michael Cohen testified against Orange Buffoon, some notes
He didn't plan on winning the election, so my first instinct was right.
He knew about the tower meeting, not surprised.
He paid back Cohen the hush money payment after the election and it was solely because of the election that he paid. Again not surprised and he theoretically could be impeached over this..
He knew about the Wikileaks email dump before it happened.
Cohen threatened Buffoon's schools not to release his grades. Proving my point that he has always been an idiot.

Apart from the last I'm not surprised by most of it. Everyone is saying bombshells but frankly I kind of assumed most of the points already. I did go back and forward on whether he wanted to win. I'll take the word of his lawyer.

Meanwhile in New Zealand the Tax Working Group recommended a Capital Gains Tax. The over cynical side of me says that they must have built a time machine as this was Labour's policy in 2011. I am not entirely clear why people say it'll be too complicated considering most of the OECD has it. You tell them that they shift the goal post saying the US has it and it hasn't reduced inequality, which completely ignores the fact that since the Regan administration taxes have gone down, which ironically is an argument for more taxation. A quick look on Wikipedia reveals there are about a dozen countries with higher income and sales taxes than us. I am not arguing for a C.G.T. here but facts are facts. I say we tax Facebook and block the site if it doesn't pay, because if it doesn't pay at least the fucking site will be blocked.

Jenny Shipley and other Mainzeal directors were ordered by the High Court to pay combined compensation of $36 million to Mainzeal creditors. My only point is why do right winger leaders suck at business?
Rodger Douglas had a failed pig farm.
George W Bush had a failed oil company.
Orange Buffoon had failed casinos, plus at minimum five other failed businesses.
Perhaps they just suck at managing things.

National emergency and Bernie Sanders

 
I for one am grateful a national emergency has been declared. The president is an idiotic lunatic. One should have been declared on inauguration. Of course it's not the reason Orange Buffoon declared one, he just wants funding for his ridiculous border wall. A border wall that is completely unnecessary as crossings has remained stagnant for years, more drugs are found at legal ports of entry, undocumented immigrants commit crimes at lower rates because they don't want to be sent back, the economy feeds on immigration and people overstaying their visas is a good portion of illegal immigration. Additionally people can just dig under walls. So there is no emergency and even if there was a border wall wouldn't fix it.

Orange Buffoon said he "didn't need to do this" in reference to the national emergency. I'm not entirely sure that he knows what an emergency is.

I predict that this will get struck down in court which would give Orange credibility to say to his moronic base that he did everything possible and but the wall could not be built. Which ignores the fact that he could have gotten it very easily by holding the tax cuts hostage, luckily he's a complete idiot and never thought of this.

Bernie Sanders is running for president. Cue the hatred from the establishment because he would represent the people instead being a corporatist. I hope that he wins. Elizabeth Warren and Tulsi Gabbard are good enough choices but they have their issues with electability. He has name recognition, filled stadiums of people last time and has a constant net positive approval rating. On the other hand he will be constantly demonized especially in the media. He will be a massive gamble but I say roll the dice. Ironically Orange Buffoon have conditioned a percentage of people to hate the media so that may lessen the effect. While true that he didn't win the primary last time 40% against the "Clinton machine" with the media being favorable towards Clinton was a good effort, he did even better with independents. Money could be a problem but I believe Orange Buffoon won with less money than Clinton so who knows.
