When I read the quote where he said "who knew Healthcare could be so complicated' I nearly gave myself a neck injury from facepalming so hard. I mean, I don't consider myself to be all that smart but ... fuck dude you are the president at least try to make some effort?

Humans and their silly 'I am a rational being' conceit.

Sorry you're feeling shitty, but yay for the teaching gig! That's awesome!

The attempts to address issues were minimal, and then heaped more issues on top. Not a good way to go about it. But now they can scream 'Obamacare is collapsing and it's all the Democrats' fault!" while they continue chipping away at it.

And yes, he did campaign on 'repeal and replace' but what he described as the ideal plan and what the GOP gave him are worlds apart. I would say I'm surprised he tried to sell it but it kinda seems like he has no clue what he is doing so...

I always use the Oxford comma. I deal in these sorts of precise language issues occasionally at work too, so I am always trying to be aware of how something I put out could be interpreted. Not that the people who are supposed to read my emails actually do, mind you.

I relate to this so much.

Here's a link to the podcast we were listening to if anyone wants to give a listen.

I have it on DVD but I have a famously short memory for things I have watched, so...

rd thought I was talking about Trigun when I asked him if he wanted to watch with me. So now we are watching Trigun, lol.

I love the aesthetic of this series, the way that it shows the dirt and grime and graffiti underneath the bright shiny future. I like that people in the series talk about living on Mars as though it's wide open and spacious but when they show it, life is confined to a crater. (Maybe more than one, but still.)

Getting ready to watch with rd95.

They must have made tiny hands jokes during the campaign. :/

I have to agree with you on this. I kept looking for a 'next page' button when I got to the end.

Counts in my book. Good job! (Maybe)
