5 Steps To (Really) Make America Great Again And Defeat ISIS

You’re a proud American. You love America. You think it’s the greatest country on Earth. That’s why you voted for Donald Trump. You want him to Make America Great Again. You want him to bring back American jobs. And you especially want him to kick ISIS in the taint.

So you were probably singing “Proud to be an American” when you saw him drop the “Mother of all Bombs” right onto ISIS’s front doorstep and send those terrorists straight up to their 72 virgins. Finally, you get to see a president get “tough” on foreign policy.

But hold on there! What if I told you there was a better way to defeat ISIS that didn’t involve launching a single missile, the cost of which exceeds what most people make in a lifetime? What if there was a way to not only defeat ISIS, but also create American jobs and produce more energy?

Well, my fellow Americans, there is such a way, and it doesn’t involve dropping a single bomb. Here’s five steps towards defeating ISIS and Making America Great Again:

NES Classic Discontinued, SNES Classic Rumored

Nintendo recently discontinued its insanely popular NES Classic console, in a move considered insanely stupid by most game critics.

I'm not really bothered by this. I was never too interested in purchasing the console, mostly because I never grew up on the original Nintendo.

However, I did grow up on the Super Nintendo. So I would be more than interested in a SNES Classic, which is rumored to be released later this year.

Now that I would buy! As long as it has both Super Mario World games, all three Donkey Kong Country games, and Super-Mario All Stars, I'll more than gladly be like...

Fan Art Friday: Now At Last I've Seen The Light

Disney Channel recently released its newest original animated series based on Tangled. I think it'! Not the best cartoon ever, but okay nonetheless. If anything, it makes me more excited for the Big Hero 6 series coming out later this year. Anyway, here's some awesome fan art based on the movie.

Throwback Thursday: Arthur Explains Asperger’s

With April being Autism Awareness Month, and in light of less-than-happy recent events, I’d thought I’d dedicated this week’s Throwback Thursday to something Autism-related.

Earlier this month, Sesame Street introduced children to autism with its newest puppet, Julia. However, Sesame Street was not the first PBS to discuss the subject matter. That honor goes to another great PBS Kids show, Arthur.

Several years prior, Arthur released an episode that also explained Autism—specifically Asperger’s Syndrome—by introducing an Autistic character, and also through a very fitting and creative metaphor:

10-Year-Old Autistic Boy Arrested

The young boy you see being arrested above is John Benjamin Haygood. He’s a ten-year-old student at Okeechobee Achievement Academy in Florida. And as you can tell from his behavior, he’s also diagnosed with Autism.

Now you’re probably wondering why this boy was being dragged away in handcuffs, despite the protests from both him and his mother. What did he do to warrant such manhandling by the cops?

He was throwing paper balls in class.

I wish I were making that up:

Senpai Noticed Me!

I’m sure you all remember my Power Rangers parody comic? The one with various YouTube libertarian personalities? Turns out a few of them noticed it. Namely Seamus Coughlin (FreedomToons) and Julie Borowski. Both of them liked and re-tweeted it on Twitter. Seamus even made a few good comments. Now that really made my day :D

Star Wars Triggers Whiny Man Babies

As a rule of thumb, if you’re offended by something in a movie, show, or video game, chances are you’re a privileged special snowflake with no real problems in your life outside of first world problems.

This rule, of course, applies to feminist SJWs, but it also applies to the opposite side of the spectrum to anti-feminist anti-SJWs, especially those triggered by non-issues such as Tracer being gay, or, as of recently, by the main lead to a Star Wars game being a black woman.

Yes, apparently, the main lead for Star Wars: Battlefront II being anyone other than a cis-hetero white male triggered many an entitled Star Wars fan with the Dark Side of The Force, and the impotent rage is as hilarious as you'd imagine. Here's just a small sample:

VGM Monday: Lost Woods (Saria’s Song)

The newest Legend of Zelda game, Breath of the Wild, was recently released. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the franchise in North America. To celebrate these occasions, I’m dedicating the next several VGM Monday posts to Zelda, wherein I’ll be highlighting music from the franchise, starting from the older games onward. This week, I'm featuring music from Ocarina of Time.

Why You Should Never Punch Nazis

There was a clash yesterday in Berkeley between small-dicked pricks and dickless pussies—er, I mean Trump supporters and Antifa! It ended up as badly (and hilariously!) as you’d imagine. If you want more details, I’d recommend watching the videos about it by Mister Metokur and Lauren Southern.

Perhaps the biggest takeaway from the whole ordeal was the very reason why the concept of “punching Nazis” is a bad idea: Nazis punch back—hard!

North Korea In A Nutshell

Considering how big of a bullet we managed to dodge this weekend due to North Korea's incompetence (or rather, "impotence"!), this cartoon best exemplifies the current situation:
