thanks, asshole

I am utterly disgusted.

A little earlier this evening I started watching a television program on the Discovery Channel, a show called "Futureweapons" discussing, as you might suspect, military technology of the future. At one point, the narrative turned to the phenomenon of Electromagnetic Pulse, where the wave-front of a nuclear explosion wreaks havoc on electrical and electronic systems and causes them to malfunction or stop working altogether.

The narrator called them "nukular" explosions.


On the Discovery Channel.

After the third "nukular," I changed the channel.

Apparently, our barely-literate empty suit of a puppet president has normalized stupidity to the extent that a pronunciation of the word "nuclear" that is not accepted by any standard reference work is able to make its way into use on a television channel that purports to be educational.

Thanks for lowering the bar on literacy, George. Oh, and thanks for causing decades worth of damage to our nation, damage that we may never be able to repair.

And while I'm thanking you for that, George, and as hurricane season begins, I don't want to forget to thank you for taking such good care of New Orleans, where they today found another Katrina victim dead in the laundry room of their home.

Thanks, you cowardly, incompetent, illiterate, illegitimate, dishonest, privileged, pretender-to-the-throne, sorry-sack-of-shit asshole of a president.

Happy Memorial Day.

New Orleans is not exactly high priority, is it? He probably wishes it would all just go away. Like education.
