Wow, I'm late to the party. All the refreshments are gone!
Larry Krasner: I don't know much of anything about them. Like many I've read up on the guy and he seems alright, I guess. We could definitely use more people like him in the prosecutor's office. Or we could get rid of the prosecutor's office. I can't say I care which happens.
Minnesota: I like the idea and theory of Minnesota, though I'm not sure how it's worked out in practice. Living there might be interesting. That part of the continent has always had an allure to me for some reason.
FALGSC: The goal all society ought to be aiming for. Someday we'll overthrow the current order and release ourselves from the shackles of liberalism!
POTUS: Of the options available, Howie Hawkins. If I got to pick anyone, probably someone like Maxine Waters (or Ron Dellums, were he still alive). She's got a decent track record of supporting policies that will bring America into the 21st century, such as Medicare-for-all and the Green New Deal, and I'd probably have a beer with her. I'd imagine it'd be kinda like drinking with my mom or grandparents, y'know.
I think the broader issue, though, is with this idea that if we just elect the right people — to the presidency, to Congress, whatever — that all our problems will be solved. No. Individuals do not change the world, collectives do.
Lemon tea plox.
Larry Krasner: A person
Minnesota: A place
Space Communism: Sounds like the Federation in Star Trek
El Presidente: Out of the Dem field, I liked Yang and Warren the most. I'd vote for Ilhan Omar if she ran. In general though, I'm pessimistic about the future of the country no matter what President we "pick."
If only we could achieve the Federation.
Honestly it's kind of interesting to ponder about how much destructive power is placed in a Starship Captain's hands.
The NCC-1701 had the capacity to lay waste to an entire planetary surface. The Romulan T'liss -with Destabilized Plasma Torps- was able to vaporize a several mile thick asteroid-base used by the Federation in two shots, and the Enterprise-D was capable of boring a hole nearly two kilometers deep in the span of fifteen seconds. Even compared to the US and it's nukes there's an absurd amount of fire-power in the hands of a single Captain.
And that's ignoring that Photon Torpedos are basically gamma-ray bombs
Like nukes are scary but that was enough to obliterate the planet down to the mantle.
Besides, nukes are cool owo
Idk, they all kind of feel the same once we get to the "obliterating all life on the planet" part.
I don't really care about what happens afterward.

- WHICH JOKER IS YOUR FAVORITE (LIVE ACTION ONLY)
Can I get Merc's skin well done with a side of his eyeball juice?
Ahhh, Benefit Cucumberpatch. Good Actor, I don't know too much about him.
I don't think I have watched a Batman movie all the way to the end, on that note Heath Ledger is the best Joker.
I think governments have a responsibility to ensure the well being of their citizens, including providing adequate mental health resources for everyone. The US has struggled with this, as you all know, especially when it comes to public schools. We can do better.
TBH I've never understood why people put RL stuff up on the Storefront. Like, the old world guns I don't understand already since technically anyone can claim them, but this is weirder because it's just swapping out "Chernobyl" with "YN Nuclear Power Plant" and claiming ownership of the radiotrophic fungi within.
A beef wellington, wrapped in some Merc, with gold leaf and pineapple crush, please. Tack.
Benedict Cumberbatch: I don't really care for him. Like, I don't hate him. I just don't care about him. I've never seen Doctor Strange or Sherlock, and probably never will.
Ben Affleck: See above, replace information as appropriate.
Government and Mental Illness: Y'all may recall that I've been involuntarily committed before — what we in Florida refer to as a Bakeracting, after the law that gives the state such power. In fact, I think I posted here as it was happening (they left me unsupervised for like 2 hours lol). It was literally the worst experience of my life and I'm still recovering some four years later. I was both glad and incensed to have learnt in my most recent round of therapy this past fall, that the entire exercise was apparently conducted completely improperly.
Despite this, I do think the government ought to have a place in the mental welfare of its citizens, just as it does in their physical welfare. I think the current #DefundThePolice movement is useful to this effect. Police, who by definition are actors of state violence, should not be conducting welfare checks and whatever paltry funds devoted to doing so ought to be redirected toward social workers of some kind. Personally, I fail to see the point of police at all but that's a separate conversation
Joker: Wow, I really just wanted to answer the mental illness question, because I don't care about the Joker either.
Issue #1,071 - Up the Creek
One of the longest rivers in The Kitsu Federation is also a major shipping lane in The Confederacy of Free Nations. Bigtopia, a downstream nation, has unveiled its plans to dam this river, prohibiting any ships from travelling further upstream and beyond its waters.
“The lifeblood of my people is at stake!” cries the ambassador from an upstream landlocked country. “My country’s only access to the sea is through that river! If that damned dam gets built, cargo ships would be unable to travel to and from my nation! Bigtopia won’t listen to our pleas. What do you say we and the other upstream countries gather an army and blow those asshats out of the water?”
…water fights now end with thousands dead. (My allies depend on that trade route. You wouldn't listen to diplomacy, so...)

Following a fracas between the Minister of Paternalism, the Minister of Patriotism and the Minister of Patchouli, your inner circle has gathered to discuss how best to run your nation’s most recently acquired colony.
“The best approach is through direct rule, of course,” chortles Hiro Cullen, slamming his hunting crop against the table so your secretary startles. “That accursed continent needs intelligent and honourable people — like myself — to teach those childlike natives. A colonial administration, staffed entirely by our people, will look after them and teach them good Spanelskoan values. When they see what great civilisation our pioneers bring to them, they won’t be so upset that we mowed down a few hundred primitive shacks for our five-star clubhouse and gated communities. They’ll see it was just common sense.”
Me: We have good values?
Literally the entire ConF= Press X to doubt
