This is not for the weak… If you cannot make light of death and mortality, please stop here and head to disney.com or someplace else.
That said, it is once again time to submit your dead pool rosters. It is still free. Maybe some day we will do a paid option for all of the marbles, but not yet.
Here is the way it works. I respect your privacy, so I you have two ways to submit your roster; you can post it in a comment on this post if you don’t care if anyone sees it, or you can email it to me. The email address to send to is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your roster should look like this:
Dead Pool 2018 Roster
[What name do you want to be displayed as on the standings.]
[Snip – for brevity]
The rosters will be gathered up and published on a post to keep us all honest.
Why the alternate? well, it is possible that someone that you have on your roster may pass away between the time that you submit it and the first of the year. This happened to me for the first time last year.
I will be using the same rule set as last year.
If a person on your roster passes during the year 2018, you will get a score of 100 minus the person’s age at the time of their passing. There are bonus points that may apply and I will award them as they occur.
Time and time again we hear the GOP preach that they want a smaller government and fiscal responsibility.
I would love to see either of those tenets to be true.
I just have not seen it yet. Each GOP administration has expanded the government. We are still early in Cheeto Von Tweeto’s administration. Since he seems to be too mentally challenged to fill out his appointment list, he may achieve this before his impeachment.Time will tell if he is destined to choke on some prison cock, but that may be a debate on another day.
Fiscal responsibility… not from this administration. All of those people who felt that a failed reality show host was a great idea. fuck the hell off. You helped screw over a few generations. It is going to take some time to repair the damages on this tax cut bill. We know that T-Rump will sign it, thinking that it is amazing. well it is kind of amazing. amazing that millions of people were so stupid that they set the stage for this shit show.
We learned from Reagan that his trickle down theory does not work. Later on, we watched in horror as W game away billions in tax rebates. Yes, I cashed mine too. We knew that the country was not in a position for that tax package.
Is the GOP so stricken with tunnel vision that it cannot see what must be done? If you want to cut taxes, great find a way to pay for it. What are you going to cut? Congress (both sides of the aisle) are very happy to raise their pay, benefits, pensions, protections and exclusions. That is the easy stuff for them. The hard part seems to be doing things responsibly, like oh I don’t know… pay back all of the money that they and their predecessors have stolen form social security over the years? How about they find some pork to trim away?
Sadly this is not the modern GOP way. The new way is to fool the masses in thinking that you have a fucking clue as to what to do, then protect the wealthy.
Want the positive? Here it is, most of the damage is done after the next term is over. So T-Rump will be out of office no matter what. If we the people are enjoying any luck, the next congress or two will undo this fuqtard’s actions. No I am not wanting him to be erased from history. We need to never make this kind of mistake again.
