That’s a not insignificant part of the reason why Trump’s favorability is consistently so low in polls, I think. It’s not that he’s not volunteering during a crisis, it’s that he whines inconsolably about every setback despite being one of the hundred or so most privileged people on the planet. Even if you allow that he does it strategically rather than out of simple vanity, because it tends to work in getting him what he wants, the spectacle of a celebrity billionaire who lives in a gilded apartment in the sky above Manhattan whining that the media is mean to him appeals to literally no one outside his own cult of personality. Even Rush, who’s spent the past year apologizing for Trump, seems to find it hard to take. It’s not the sort of thing you’d waste time doing if you’re trying to claw back 10 percent from Hillary Clinton in the polls. It’s exactly the sort of thing you’d spend time doing if you’re trying to prepare your base for a loss and are desperate for them to understand that it’s not your fault.Quote II

“Don’t bring that violence here,” said Kimberly Neal, one of Smith’s sisters.Quote III
Despite CNN’s selective editing, Neal was not calling for peace — she was calling for peace in black neighborhoods and requesting that rioters instead target the white community for violence. “Burning down sh*t ain’t going to help nothing,” she continued. “Y’all burning down sh*t we need in our community. Take that sh*t to the suburbs. Burn that sh*t down. We need our weave.”

"The five-shot rifle, that’s a standard military rifle; the problem is if you attach a clip to it so it can fire more shells and if you remove the pin so that it becomes an automatic weapon, and those are independent criminal offenses,” Weld said. “That is when they become, essentially, a weapon of mass destruction. The problem with handguns probably is even worse than the problem of the AR15."

“We can never know what to want, because, living only one life, we can neither compare it with our previous lives nor perfect it in our lives to come…There is no means of testing which decision is better, because there is no basis for comparison. We live our lives without warning, like an actor going on cold.”Quote V

I personally feel, by the way, that it’s probably time that we start the process of fixing the Star Wars numbering system. I understand that we cannot simply pretend that the first three movies ever happened, but there’s still no reason to reward failure. We need an alternate method for counting these movies.

Now I've analyzed this movie with a team of cheerleaders, who all came to one unanimous conclusion: that if I let them go, they won't tell nobody.Quote VII

Charli XCX isn't so much a singer who strips as she is a stripper who sings.
