It's been a weird year. People finally stood up and said enough to our out of control police force while completely ignoring the fact that our government failed to prosecute anyone of any importance, not just black people. We lost several planes, including another one in Indonesia just yesterday. The movie studios continued to put out terrible films, and some great genre ones, all the while cowering over a North Korean attack that was never going to happen. Several world leaders went publically insane, as well as a voting block here that now has Jeb Bush at the top of the heap for the Republicans while Democrats fight for Hillary. What is wrong with the world? Let's see those runner ups in a really douchebag filled year.
12)Ebola/CDC- No disease was more misunderstood and overblown than this one. People panicked that Ebola was going to spread across the nation even though there was little chance of that. Of course none of this was helped by a press blowing this way out of proportion, a CDC that has done one inept thing after another this year, like sending deadly flu virus samples through the mail, infecting their own people with anthrax and Ebola, and even finding a sample of smallpox in an unguarded store room. Nurse Kaci Hickox didn't help by refusing to self quarantine causing a panic and her eventual move from her home due to death threats. And Texas Presbyterian was responsible for more fear than anyone by letting a person actually infected with Ebola leave the hospital and later infect two nurses who lacked proper training and equipment. If a plague ever hits, we can safely say, we are all dead in days because these ass clowns have no idea what they are doing.
11)Bill Cosby/Stephen Collins- Two of America's best loved father figures plummeted to Earth with the former being accused of drugging and raping dozens of women over the years while the later confessed to being a child molester. Good times. Both had their shows pulled from the air and have little chance of salvaging what was once a fantastic career. Of the two, I am even madder at Bill Cosby because black people have so few role models to begin with and this ass just took one of their best ones away because he can't keep his dick out of sleeping women. Rot in hell, Bill.
9)The world economy- As of this writing, Japan's economy appears to be in freefall. Wages are plunging, sales have flat lined and their stock market has not done well this year. They have responded by their own version of QE infinity, only this one is far, far more lucrative, resulting in $15 billion a day, whereas ours was $85 billion a month at its peak. The PM there, Shinzo Abe, recently won re-election in a vote that few showed up for as the alternative was just as bad. I feel your pain as 2016 is shaping up to be the worst election of all times. Much like here, no has any money so no one is buying anything, yet they feel that doing the exact same thing that hasn't worked ever will work this time. Insanity. Meanwhile, Russia, Venezuela and Iran and collapsing due to falling oil prices, Greece is in the red only because they are not paying their bills, and the US government tells us our GDP rose by 5% last month, solely due to stock buybacks and Obamacare. 2015 is going to be another roller coaster.
7)Sony/movie studios/movie theaters- Where to start with these abject morons? Drunken monkeys could have made better decisions than what these guys did this year. Studios in general put out a lot of crap this year in TV and film that never should have left the printed page. What idiot read Sex Tape or the Robocop remake and said "this sounds good. Let's film this." Reality TV died a painful death when expensive flops like Utopia went south quick, Honey Boo Boo's mom started dating a child molester (not Stephen Collins) which ended that series stat, and Duck Dynasty ratings plummeted when people found out what racist, homophobic douchebags they really were. Harvey Weinstein was such a dick he sent one of the best movies of the year, Snowpiercer, to theater Siberia (eight whole theaters showed this masterpiece) because the director correctly said he wouldn't cut 20 minutes from the film, which having seen it, was not possible. So this ass munch made far less money, as much as 50 million dollars, than he should have just cause someone told him no and he had a hissy fit over it. Who does he think he is, Kim Jong Un? This type of attitude is rampant apparently as leaked emails from Sony show a junior high mentality from people running multi-national, multi-billion dollar companies. I could do a better job for half the pay. The worst of the bunch were movie theaters that refused to show the Interview after North Korea made a baseless threat that they have been making for sixty years now. Sony didn't help by looking every bit as cowardly as the theaters, but they at least grew a pair and eventually out the film out, while the big chains are still wearing their diapers. Way to act like an American, not to mention the massive profits you guys missed out on.
5)Grand Juries/Justice Department/Supreme Court- This year we say first hand how ineffective both of these things are, with grand juries refusing to indict cops caught on camera killing people while the Justice Department made a mockery of what they are supposed to be doing. Eric Holder has been another loser in a long line of AG's going back at least forty years, strongly suggesting we should eliminate this position. No prosecutions of anything or anyone of importance no matter how obvious it was. Banks did illegal stuff? A slap on the wrist. Rich people stole money? A wink and a nod. Medical pot? Confusion. How hard is it to follow the laws we have on the books. And then we have grand juries, or secret trials, where all the evidence is behind closed doors as perps are sent to trial 99% of the time while police in trouble as the exact opposite. Our justice system is dead. The worst of the worst was the Supreme Court who have made one bone headed decision after another, opening the flood gates for even more money in politics, removing barriers from abortion clinics so screaming idiots can "talk" to people who just want to be left alone in a very personal choice that is none of their business and is actually against what is said in the Bible they supposed revere and said corporations can be religious. These guys, both liberal and conservative, have been terrible and should all be removed from office.
3)The American Public- We are a particularly stupid people. Black people made everything about race from the First Lady complaining about a short, somewhat clueless white woman, asking for her help getting something down from a shelf at Target, to Whoopie Goldberg's assertion that only black people know what racism really is. They refused to see that Mike Brown may have been shot due to his own ignorance and have completely left the station when it comes to the acknowledgement that a majority of crimes in this country are committed by black people even though they make up only 13% of the population. White people fared no better by voting in a Republican majority, even though they have publically stated they want to strip the average person of things like unemployment insurance, Medicare, Social Security, unions, and a fair wage. Hell, some want to make people work weekends for no extra pay. Sure the democrats sucked this year, but good Lord, way to vote yourself into an early grave. We are a dumb, dumb people that can't name all three branches of government, yet know all the Kardashians by name. We are so screwed. The worst of the bunch were also mostly white, conspiracy theorists who came up with some real humdingers. We are still hearing about the missing planes over the Indian Ocean, the plane shot down over Ukraine, the Sony hack attack and a zillion other notions that were laughably stupid. The winner hands down was the morons who are now suing the Federal Government for, and I swear this is true, one trillion dollars for "lying" about the Newtown shooting which they still swear didn't happen. Nevermind the fact that, even according to them, hundreds of people would have had to have been involved, and as no one has come forward yet to verify it, seems more farfetched then a unicorn hunt. Same goes for climate change deniers that continue to use questionable data to fuel their skepticism even though the effects can be seen with the naked eye.
