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.
151885 600 Ebola and friends cartoons
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.
10)Muslims extremists- ISIS made headlines this year by beheading Westerners, regardless if they were Muslim or not, while a deranged psychopath took hostages recently at a chocolate shop in Australia. Meanwhile, a bloody war was fought between Israel and the Gaza Strip because God forbid either side wants peace, and the Palestinians sure as hell do not want to recognize Israel which would of course solve everything. The Sultan of Brunei single handedly killed the famous Beverly Hills hotel when he enacted strict anti-gay legislation in his country, causing a boycott that still goes on today. Word is ISIS wants the pope dead, which if it ever occurred, would result in the genocide of Muslim people everywhere and WW3. Keep it up guys. If you looking at new ways to end the world, that one's a doozy

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.
8) World Leaders- Several leaders went nuts this year. Vladimir Putin seems to think it's 1950 and almost is double dog daring the West to attack. Recep Erdogan is trying to be the next Sultan of Turkey and actually jailed a teen who insulted him. Really? He also said women should stay home and make babies all the while building a palace that would make Versailles blush. The worst of the bunch was Kim Jong Un who had several temper tantrums this year, the latest of which was a cyber attack on Sony and threats over a very silly, but very funny movie, The Interview. These guys are going to get us all killed.

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.
6)NYPD/Cops- The American public have finally looked at the militarization of our police force and screamed enough. And while the Mike Brown case seemed to be a justified shooting, the Tamir Rice and Eric Gardner case were far less so. Gardner's case was caught on tape and they still found for no charges from the cop who killed him. Local police across this country have come under intense scrutiny for killing unarmed people in New Mexico and South Carolina resulting in charges being brought or even Justice Department investigations. Newspapers found forfeiture laws being used like brigands to steal from average people as well as the fact that SWAT team attacks have increased by 1000% of the last few decades. No one was as bad as the NYPD, and that absolute loon Pat Lynch, who this week said his police force would no longer respond to the mayor, in what most places would be described as a coup. The NYPD this year led the nation in accidental shootings as nobody on the force seems to be able to hit the broad side of a barn and have wounded and killed more innocent people than any other police force on Earth. This group needs body cameras stat.

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.
4)MSM- Last night, around 3 AM said it all. CNN was breathlessly hyperventilating over yet another missing plane. Fox news has a special about a War on Christians which could have been filmed at any point in human history as Muslims, Jews and Christians have been fighting forever. And, of course, MSNBC had Lock Up on as they always do. The MSM missed every major story this year, with this blog beating all of them by days, weeks or even months, until they woke up and realized what was going on. Economics was the worst as they echoed whatever the government told them and then buried the inevitable retraction on page D7, under the ad for Smegals' furniture, a happy birthday for some octogenarian, and a puff piece about a little girl's campaign to end world hunger. Print news did no better with Rolling Stone falling Journalism 101 in their fake rape story, a travesty of writing. The media is lying to you. Accept it and take everything they say with a grain of salt.

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.
2)Politicians- Both sides sucked this year and it showed. Democrats made the entire election about one thing: abortion and, as a result, paid for it dearly at the voting booths, getting shellacked in November. Republicans now have a bigger majority than almost ever before and that is solely because Democrats ran horrifically bad candidates than ran away from Obama at every turn, which didn't help at all. Obama waited until after November to actually do anything that people liked, which is the most bizarre campaign strategy I have ever seen. He has signed some legislation that is questionable at best, including things like increasing radiation and arsenic in our water, bank blowjob bills and other corporate giveaways that will do nothing to help an ailing country. The Republicans waited all of five minutes after winning before declaring war on the president which sent them running home with their tail between their legs as they have no alternative to the immigration plan Obama signed an executive order on. The public said loud and clear they want a raise and less money in politics, which they promptly ignored. Lindsey Graham lost his mind and has become quite the warmonger, wanting war with Russia, North Korea and, I think, Santa, after he didn't get his My Little Pony toy he asked for this Christmas. Both sides conspired to pass the worst spending bill in human history, a fact that will come back to bite us in the ass over the next year. These guys suck and the fact that Bush/Clinton seem to be in the cards for 2016 says how bad things are going to get.
1)Dick Cheney, George Bush, CIA and others involved in torture- If I was Bush, I would be telling Cheney to shut the fuck up already. Darth Cheney made the rounds telling anyone who would listen that of course Bush knew about the torture program which means if charges are ever filed, he may have just put W. in the electric chair right next to him. The penalty for torture is death and that is what we did to many Germans and Japanese after WW2 for doing the EXACT same things they did which cost them their lives. These assholes committed war crimes according to the Geneva Convention and charges are pending against them, as well as a lawsuit recently filed by Amnesty International for crimes against humanity, which Cheney has publically confessed to. If this ever goes to trial, those words are going to come back to haunt him. It is sad that a majority of suckers in this country agree with him, because the information we got from this program was worthless and at least 26 innocent people were tortured as well. How is that okay? Jack Bauer is one thing. Torturing someone who you think may have info you need is not. The fact the his brother Jeb is at the head of the pack for 2016 shows how bad our short term memories we have here. Does no one remember these dicks running this country into the ground and nearly ending the planet's economy? Apparently not. So congratulations Dick Cheney, W, and all others who should be in jail, you are indeed douchebag of the year.
