That is a pretty annoying culture

It's not just the US that has that problem.

Here in the UK, we had over 6 million people sign an online petition on the government's official website demanding that Brexit be stopped, while in the European Parliament elections 5 million voted for a new political party demanding Brexit go forward no matter what the cost to the country. Can you guess which group are calling themselves the "majority", getting all of the media attention and demanding that the government does what they want?...

Brexit just blows my mind. I'm definitely not an expert on UK politics, but from what I can tell, there is legit no way for Brexit to happen without incredible damage to the country - to the economy, to security, etc. The Northern Ireland situation is also a mess.

But hey, there was no way for Trump to happen without incredible damage to the US. And yet.

When Brexit happened I knew the US was ****ed because we truly have dumb ass people voting because a celebrity ran for office.

It’s ironic that Felicity Huffman is playing the prosecutor in the Central Park Five case knowing what’s happening to her in real life. Sidenote that prosecutor was a ****in racists through and through.

As the prosecutor, she had to know the case was weak? There was no evidence against the boys. There was no real indication there had been more than one attacker.

At all. What’s worse is they could’ve stopped the actual rapists and Lourdes Gonzales would be alive right now. The actor who played Korey has gotten so much better since doing Moonlight. He and the adult who played Ray had me in years multiple times. I was to young to understand the case back then much like Rodney King and the Riots but by the time I saw LAPD allowed OJ to walk I just knew the justice system was a hot ass mess.

Yes, and he went on to rape multiple women (murdering one IIRC) before he was caught for another crime, after the rape in Central Park.

Ugh. He can't ever be wrong. Even with literal DNA evidence proving him wrong, he still can't admit to being wrong. He thinks it makes him look strong, which is about as true as him believing his poorly tailored clothes hide that he's overweight (I don't care that he's overweight, nor would I wish to shame him for it, but I CAN shame him for hideous fashion choices, lol).

The Dark Phoenix is pure evil. omg. It sucks FOX just gave up on The X-Men because with a better script it could’ve worked. Sophie and the cast is not the problem.

I admit, I haven't been racing to see that one.

You think it can't get more ridiculous than Trump talking about windmills...and then he starts talking about space.
