Oh, this has been fun. While the page here hasn't been as active due to me being in law school, I am still posting news at our Facebook page. This has led to some serious insanity, and our page isn't the only one going back and forth.
For those who don't know, Eastwood backed Bloomberg in an interview with Wall Street Journal. A lot of people immediately started screaming fake news, even though every news outlet from the biggest to the smallest posted a story about it. Some people on our Facebook page actually got angry with me, I had messages sent, and some people even left the page, because how dare I.
And it is tough to believe. This is a big change for Eastwood, who has always been a big supporter of the second amendment, to back a candidate who not only supports the complete destruction of the second amendment, but aims to micromanage the lives of every American from the minute they wake up through when they are asleep. Bloomberg is possibly the closest thing to a dictator I've seen in the USA since my birth, and people are actually supporting him. For people speaking publicly, Bloomberg has already admitted to wanting to pay people to show public support of him, he's admitted to paying off "influencers," and Twitter has suspended 70+ pro-Bloomberg accounts for "platform manipulation."
This leads me to believe that Eastwood needs the money. I doubt he is doing this for free.
Anyway, there was a lite break this morning that Eastwood claimed he didn't support Bloomberg. That was also fake! Check this out:
This was posted on little cared about social media platform Parler. And it isn't a lie. The guy who runs that account is pro-Trump and doesn't support Bloomberg. It's just that the owner isn't Clint Eastwood, either.
So, drama aside for now. Clint Eastwood backed Bloomberg - for whatever reason - in a Wall Street Journal interview. You can assume why. It could be money. Could be more innocent. My dad, as an example, was a Reagan Conservative his entire life. After getting brain cancer he became a Bernie Sanders supporter. Do with that what you will.
Anyway, celebrities are entitled to support whoever they want, just like the rest of us, even if the support is most likely bought. It's Bloomberg, with everything going on with him, if I hear anyone say they support Bloomberg I assume they are getting a check. Eastwood will most likely show up in an ad or at a campaign rally to tell us all we need to support him while Bloomberg lets the ink on the check dry.
Now, back to reality and things that affect our lives.
My news feeds are full of more news about the royals.
I still don't care about the royals.
I don't have to.
We won that war.
I screwed up. Mom's 70th birthday was yesterday and we took her and some friends out to party. I got home very, very late and was so exhausted I couldn't see straight. Guess what didn't get done! There's no podcast. SO! Let's go live at 10PM Eastern tonight instead. We'll just do the podcast live. The audio from the live feed will become the podcast later.

Guys, I know a lot of people don't want to hear this, but I'm sad. The Trump baby balloon was hysterical. I'm sorry, it was. Maybe I have a weird sense of humor, but I love it when people spend their own money to do crazy crap like this. I loved the giant Trump chicken way back when he was first elected, and man did that ever piss off the SJWs that I thought the chicken was glorious and hysterical.
They want you to get butt hurt over this stuff. It enrages them when you laugh about it. Popping the Trump baby balloon gave them another martyrdom. They were waiting for someone to do it (and it can be repaired so they can keep collecting martyrdoms off of the balloon).
Seriously, you should have seen the mass attacks I had come at me when I laughed about the Trump chicken and called it glorious.
If you want to make them feel like they wasted their time, don't destroy stuff. Don't go to their level. Laugh at it and have fun with it. Do you think Trump cares about a baby balloon? Why do you?
So AOC and Ted Cruz might be working on a bill together! Look, this is also a good bill. So I don't give a rat's patoot who is sponsoring it or writing it or presenting it, it needs to be done. Not that the elite will allow it through and it will become law, but this is a good start. And I applaud the willingness to work with those not on your side of the isle to get good things done.
Now I'm going to be interested in seeing what they actually come up with.
