Last Week Tonight: Venezuela

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John puts the spotlight on Venezuela. That country is having an election next week and John shows us what the limited option is for the people there.

Last Week Tonight: Iran Deal

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver talks about the Iran Deal and how Baby-Hands McDrumpf is most likely going to cram it down the shitter like everything else he gets his tiny hands on, including the presidency.

Happy birthday, John! Keep up the awesome work.

Last Week Tonight: Corporate Taxes

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver talks about how corporations are able to pay less taxes than the average working-class American citizen.

Don’t forget this little fact, speaking of tax season: Churches are tax-exempt. Why, then, do they constantly ask for donations?

Just a thought to mull over.

Last Week Tonight: Crisis Pregnancy Centers

In this edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John exposes the deception practiced by so-called “Crisis Pregnancy Centers,” which are vehemently against women’s rights to choose.

The tactics those places use are eerily similar to online sites which promise medical treatment and / or counseling, but are really a cover for some con artist to get money for nothing.

Short Comedic Clip

I saw this the other night and am still laughing over it, so it was worthy of sharing.

Spring Forward

Daylight Saving Time is upon some of us again. Had to set the clocks ahead one hour since it is time to “spring forward.”

Daylight Saving Time used to begin in April and end in October. Now it begins in March and ends in November. Here in the USA, two states don’t recognize this biannual time change. There are a few countries which don’t participate, either.

John Oliver has a short little piece about Daylight Saving Time which is pretty good.

Competitive Edge

Watching some of the events at the Olympics made me think of competitive edge. Anyone who has competed in a sport, and enjoyed it, knows the feeling.

All of those athletes got there through hard work, dedication, determination, and support from family and friends.

Do you think they would have gotten there if their supporters hindered them? Possibly, but it would have been a longer, harder road.

Stabbing someone in the back, steering someone the wrong way, or throwing someone under the bus isn’t helpful.

Cowards who are afraid of real competition seem to do that the most.

It’s funny that they think they’re better than the ones they sandbagged.

They’ve never been in a real competition with a real person, I’d wager.

Last Week Tonight: Drumpf vs. the World

I’ve missed “Last Week Tonight” and am glad that John Oliver is back with brand-new episodes.

In this first installment since November 2017, John takes a look at how America’s reputation worldwide has taken a major downturn since the orange-haired Commander-In-Cheat took over.

America isn’t perfect, but it is a damned sight better than some other countries: those shitholes of Italy, Australia, and Canuckistan, to name a few.

Movie Time

This movie has been on my must-see list since I first heard about it. It will be in theatres soon. Can’t wait to see it!

I’m sure to get a few new, excellent ideas for cosplay items. Comic-Con 2020 is one goal of many that I’m working on.

Sometimes…

People suck. A lot. Being insufferable douchenozzles or annoying asshats are the only things that they are good at, and they go out of their way to be so, constantly and consistently.

On a positive note, there are also people who radiate genuine good-heartedness and true, open spirituality. They are rare and wonderful beings to encounter, and one never forgets the ones whom we are fortunate enough to happen across.
