Duh it goes:
1. Staring at a solar eclipse without sun glasses.
2. Banning slavery.
3. Stopping Hitler's regime.

You mean, "Selling weapons to other people so they could stop Hitler's regime."

WWII was won on the Eastern Front in Europe. Everything else was a distraction--not necessarily unimportant, but a distraction.

I wasn't being technical.

I see enough Americans saying, "We stopped the Nazis!" that at this point it's a reflex for me to say, "No, the Russians stopped the Nazis. You distracted the Nazis."

Again, important distractions. And Lend-Lease was an important program (and set the US on the path to being the arms dealer it is today). But put everything in its proper context.

No school should be more concerned about its brand than its students.

The part that I've always noticed is that any attempts to keep the brand clean always tarnish the brand more than the initial incident. (See also: Nixon and Watergate, Penn State and Sandusky)

Those are the ones that got leaked and became common knowledge. Most of the time, PR works, and when it works, it's invisible.

Well then, I guess Trump is better than both Jesus and/or Cthulhu, according to Fox News. Fair enough, I say.

Did a Fox News presenter seriously suggest that the sacred "founding fathers" don't in fact measure up to a current president? Huh, I thought such a thing amounts to high treason amongst American conservatives.

Don't you know? Jesus was the only real founding father. And, as awesome as he was, he was never President.


Naw, here's the real founding father.


Hey, Lovecraft was a shoe-in for the alt right and he's surrounded by froggy dudes!

And look, the sky's orange.

Yeah, the racists are suspicious about the whole story.
It contains details of people browner than them being a fukton braver. Cue shrill cries of "fake news"!
