Thursday Night Open Thread

Remember Cyndi Lauper? Yeah, she was big there for a bit. I haven’t really seen much of her since she appeared on Donald Trump’s TV show back in 2010. She’s still around and performing though. Some theater work. Songs. Stuff.

I Know Where They’d Feel at Home

In Florida, record numbers of people are reporting seeing hungry alligators in their yards, their pools, or even in the streets.

Just waiting for the left to demand sanctuary cities for them.

Trump Truths: Drill

In order to combat rising gas prices, President Trump has vowed to open up drilling in whichever National Park makes Democrats scream the loudest. Worst case, the derrick on Lincoln’s head could be disguised as a stovepipe hat.

It’s a Hard-Knock Life

In a throwback to communist-style censorship, a Russian news site was blocked by its government for being anti-Putin.

Russia’s lucky. America’s news sites have to put up with Trump mean-tweeting them.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

While I’m not a fan of country music, I did hear a lot of it growing up. Some of it I still listen to, having it on my playlists. Such as this one by everyone favorite sausage maker.

These Programs Never Fail

Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren tweeted criticism of President Trump’s tweet about Ilhan Omar, saying he “is trying to incite violence“.

I’ll suggest the obvious solution to all this violence: a tweet-buyback program.

AOC’s Green New Deal Movie Hailed As “Chilling, Dystopian Masterpiece”

Emitters will be thrown into the Pit of Heads!

NEW YORK CITY (AP) – With her ground-breaking 7-minute film now available online, Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already generating Oscar buzz for her work, which is set in a future world where Green New Deal legislation was actually passed into law in 2021. Critics are hailing “A Message From the Future” as a “chilling, dystopian, masterpiece.”

Rotten Tomatoes said, “It opens with a lone figure dressed in white riding alone in a bullet train. It looks like Lily Munster, but the calming, nasally Bronx accent quickly assures us that it’s AOC. Why is she alone? Why are there no protesters in front of the Capitol Building? There are ALWAYS protesters in front of the Capitol building! Is protesting even allowed in the future? Later in the film, we see a lot of disembodied heads surrounding words in blood-red suggesting that “emissions” (the emitting of opposing views, perhaps?) be “cut in half”. AOC doesn’t waste time getting dark and creepy.”

IMDB’s review notes, “Iliana, the secondary protagonist, unable to get a good paying job in the fossil fuels industry, is forced to work in an alligator-infested swamp planting mangrove trees. Later, we see her working as a nanny. Did a brush with malaria destroy her hopes and dreams, leaving her crippled and physically unable to do manual labor? The narrator says it’s OK because her new job is “low carbon”. I guess if she were “high carbon,” she’d get to dress in white and ride alone in her private bullet train car.”

Even Roger Ebert was a little shaken. “Definitely not a kid’s movie. Just to prove what happens to “emitters”, the Democrats in charge of all three branches of government (after being swept in during the 2020 elections) completely ignore a devastating hurricane that destroys Miami. If you thought New Orleans was tragic, you will weep as 20-story buildings are swept out to sea while a Democrat President’s FEMA minions stand idly by, doing nothing to relieve Miami’s cries of despair. And I don’t want to spoil the ending for you, but that last frame where all the buildings are slowly being taken over by encroaching foliage… I can’t imagine a darker vision for America’s future. Look out, Stephen King, AOC is a horror prodigy!”

AOC said she’s already working on a sequel, tentatively titled “Soylent Green New Deal”.

Trump Truths: Prize

President Trump deserves a Nobel Peace Prize, since he posted a video unflattering to Muslims, yet not a single American ambassador died because of it.
