Remember that time the U.S. shot down an Iranian civilian airliner over Iranian airspace, killing all 290 on board, including 66 children, and then refused to apologize for doing it?
"I will never apologize for the United States. I don’t care what the facts are. I’m not an apologize-for-America kind of guy." — Vice President (and then-presidential candidate) George H.W. Bush, commenting on the downed airliner, 8/2/1988

That quote makes me sick.

LTMC: I actually did not know about this.  My only defense is that I was 4 years old at the time, and the government apparently did a great job of glossing over the history books on this one.  Also, that GHWB quote is solid gold, thought not as solid as the solid gold dancers.

He actually said that basic quote throughout the the 1988 campaign:
I will never apologize for the United States,” the Vice President declared recently. ”I will stand up for her. ”
Also, the United States has since expressed it’s deep regret over the loss of life or some BS like that, but never made an official apology. Then again, I don’t even know if the United States recognized Iran’s government at the time. There certainly weren’t diplomatic relations. 
Anyway, the point being that you can’t compare the two incidents without comparing their political situations, which are dramatically different.

WTF?!!!!!!!


Stark quits as the hand to the king?

snorlaxatives:

why the fuck does everyone in the purge movies want to kill people if crime was legal i’d find a way to erase my student debt and also probably steal a bunch of new clothes

I’ve always wondered, is conspiracy to commit a crime on the night of the Purge a crime?

Spotted: Walder Frey (i.e. actor David Bradley) at a wedding. Luckily, it ended better than the typical Game of Thrones wedding.

I am all but certain that he was cast in Broadchurch just so that everyone would suspect him.

If I ever get in a fight, I want Daft Punk to DJ it.

look what you can buy

There is a Pope in the Cars universe. This means that there is Catholic Christianity, which means there was a Jesus car who was crucified. Jesus Chrysler was crucified by car Romans under Pontiac Pilot who washed his wheels. A car was nailed to a cross and ascended to Heaven.

Turns water in to gas.
