[News] Post a D&D Picture

Previous incarnations of Cleveland/P&C/D&D have had an image thread, to handle political cartoons and other image-based stuff that doesn't belong in the general post-a-picture threads.

If any of them spawn an extended discussion, please spawn it off into its own thread. Replies to non-picture replies should take the form of a link pointing to a post on a different discussion thread.

And I shouldn't have to say it, but the images still need to abide by the rules.

It was the gawd damn printer.

The Saudis bought the PGA

Man. I get we are 22 years past this event, and there are adults now that didn't exist then, and that creates a disconnect.

But it still seems very unfunny.

Yeah, no, not funny, sorry.

What I think it is interesting to note is how up in arms people are about it. Somehow golf a largely white, rich, luxury game is what people are choosing to be angry about? Not the slaves used for the World Cup construction, not the butchering of journalists, but rich folks walking around ecological horror parks.

But of course. Who do you think the world is supposed to be about?

People were very angry about those things as well.

Been waiting for that Fascist, mysogynist, homophobic, huckstering, hateful, lying, cheating scammer to die since the 80's.

Sending thoughts and prayers to his family and followers (but no checks). They might not be the thoughts and prayers they want, but it's just a fraction of what they deserve for the damage they have done to this country...

Thoughts and prayers that he is in hell at least.

Lest any of us forget, Pat Robertson was the racist piece of sh*t that said that the Haitian earthquake was God's punishment for black folks rebelling against slavery.

My wife, a 43 year old queer American who grew up in America, asked me, a foreigner who didn't live here during Robertson's heyday, "who's this Pat Robertson guy who died?"

Sometimes I feel like her entire life before meeting me was full-on Kimmy Schmitt in a bunker. It's a weekly occurrence that I have to explain something/someone to her that's common knowledge for most Americans.

LOL. In Korea, when folks say sh*t like that, the usual half joking response is "YOU'RE A NORTH KOREAN SPY!!"

Can anyone seriously imagine trump writing something like this - even to someone he likes and who supports him? This is the underlying difference between Biden and trump - a basic human kindness.

Power outages, police and political violence, mass shootings, toilet paper scarcity, Russian election interference, infantile tyrannical billionaires, Apple product mania, misinformation and conspiracies, killer bugs, massive layoffs...

It feels like a Billy Joel song
