  1. The President said the word "infrastructure" earlier today so now it's infrastructure week and get hyped.
  2. This is why I said I'd trade HB1 for 5 billion in wall funding. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-05-21/federal-wall-funding-of-1-57-billion-yields-1-7-miles-of-fence The wall always was and will continue to be a symbol, while any attempt to actually build it will be filled with graft and laundering. It's never getting built.
  3. Indeed. If the outcome is as Larry put in the hypothetical, then America is already lost. That being said, the theory that they are laying the groundwork has merit. I want to see people dragged before committees in cuffs after defying subpoenas as much as anyone, but failing to follow proper procedure will only cost time in the long run when a judge says something wasn't done right. All the more true with the number of landmine Trump appointees, any possible reason to stymie the Dems will be used to its fullest. And courts will undoubtedly have to be involved, if not from Dems bringing challenges to GOP conduct, then from GOP challenging Dem conduct. I just wish they'd lay out the roadmap a little more openly. The slow roll plan looks like weakness whereas it may be the most effective strategy in the long run if they follow through.

    Game of Thrones Season 8

    Alright, so for spinoffs we have: Small Council - sitcom - basically Seinfeld except Kramer is in charge of all the money. West of Westeros - Adventure drama - basically the Odyssey, except with Arya. Anyone remember this thing: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118414/ A Gone Targaryen - Action Drama - Jon discovers some new evil in the north, and must defeat it. But he can't do it alone...

    Well yeah, electoral college was a joke. Really they just went from hereditary monarchy to oligarchic monarchy. PROGRESS!

    They compromised and basically got the electoral college.

    I mean, in fairness, he did what he was named to be. A Gone Targaryen. But also yeah, I expect the books to handle that a wee bit differently. And for that I would like to say screw you to D&D, because now I have to read the books.

    After a 30 minute delay due to fighting with Dominos for my pizza that was an hour and half late... ...I'm cool with this. We all knew Dany needed to go. Can't go cray cray and not get shanked. Kinda surprised at Bran but honestly it sorta makes sense. He's probably the most level headed of everyone there. Jon pet the puppy. That helps.

    Honestly, the main characters are actually pretty hardy, and that's even before they all donned their plot armor for episode 3. They survive a lot, unless they needed to die. Then they died. Like Ned took a sword to the back of the leg season 1 and had a permanent limp, but meanwhile how many times have we seen a character's leg slashed since then and they prance around?

    So why not just kill her [Arya] here and further the story in the ´╗┐process´╗┐? I know this was 5 pages ago but HOW DARE YOU. HOW DARE YOU! In fairness, Arya survived similar stuff like 6 times that episode so it's not out of the realm of possibility.

    Honestly the thing that annoys me more than anything, and I do mean anything, is the scorpions. Like they could have done so much with them! My thought was that they were going to illustrate some greater point about the march of technology, in that even if Dany won now with dragons, it would only be a matter of time until someone invented an even better model or got a lucky shot. In a war of magic vs. Technology, magic had the upper hand for a while but now technology was winning, and magic truly was going to leave the world. Further this would presumably force Dany to learn how to rule without her dragons or slave armies (because they all died at Winterfell and you cannot convince me otherwise). She has to win the throne on merit and ideas, not force of arms. And maybe that could be what pushed her over the edge. Maybe Drogon was injured in the fight at King's landing. Maybe he died shortly thereafter. But something happens to demonstrate that the march of history will leave her dragons behind. Shoot, that'd be the perfect catalyst for her to go crazy. She dive bombs the fleet (really divebombs, not the fake divebomb they did which was really like a 44 degree angle), and destroys most of the scorpions. She busts open the walls. She lands near a bunch of people and starts to talk about how they are free and stuff and they keep running from her instead of worshipping her. Maybe you get a couple yelling "Cersei save us" (with some build up in previous episodes of her giving speeches about how she'll protect them). And then someone fires a scorpion bolt into the dragon's leg. Maybe it's a soldier, maybe it's a fearful civilian. Probably better if its a fearful civilian. But either way, her dragon just took a bolt to the leg after she was trying to get the people to rally to her. Instead they run and scream. She views the people now as thankless thralls of Cersei, and decides killing them is fitting. Dracaris all day. And boom. Descent to madness works perfectly.

    For real tho, how? Like okay, I get *some* unsullied surviving, they had some defending Mel behind the fire line, and I get *some* Dothraki surviving because some managed to run back after the most ill advised cavalry charge since Pharaoh's in Exodus, BUT to have an entire light cavalry army left seemingly? Could they at least have thrown in a scene of Dany stealing horses from everyone on their march south?
