Greetings Webtaculators. You are getting Webtacular World a day late in honor of our current president who got his budget out way past its due date. Happy President’s Day! On to the news.
STORY OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Immigration Is Not An Emergency
Why: Because when both the Cato Institute and the National Review rebuke a Republican President’s decision, it must be wrong. Our Dealmaster in Chief not only lost a ton of money in American productivity by keeping the government closed for a month, but also got a worse deal out of the final budget that passed, which as expected, did not include enough money for a wall. Like most things in life, it would have been better for Trump if he had actually done nothing. I guess that means that I need to edit the opening paragraph again, since it turns out he does do things, they are just mostly wrong. But since being wrong is his MO, that actually means I can leave it alone. He then proceeded to shoot his argument in the foot and run it over with a car, before heading off to golf.
ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: No AMZN For NYC
Why: Because Amazon backed out of its HQ deal with New York City after a large pushback against some of the company’s tactics and plans for the location.
LAW THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: I Don’t Pledge
Why: Because forcing people to pledge allegiance to something is what fascists do. Getting arrested for the outcome is even worse.
SCIENCE THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: The End Of Opportunity
Why: Because the NASA rover went offline for the last time.
SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Hey Now, You’re An All Star
Why: Because Basketball is the most fun All Star game in professional sports. Mostly due to Curry related alley oops, like this and this.
MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Alita Nonsense
Why: Because this movie looks like it had potential, but that apparently is the problem.
MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (long read)
What: Just Stop
Why: Because I don’t think I ever actually heard a Ryan Adams song, but for some reason this ass hat keeps coming up in regards to ruining other peoples careers.
TRAVEL THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Idiot Tourists Ruin Everything
Why: Because Everest base camp is closed due to too much trash.
LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (6 min. read)
Why: Because it’s not a good thing when a person who was (briefly) in charge of the FBI says that they have to protect the world from the current president.
VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (quick look)
What: Another Week, Another Too Many Games
Why: Because Anthem was supposed to be the big thing, but it probably isn’t the best out of a bunch of mediocre games that tend to get released right near the end of the fiscal year. Metro: Exodus is probably a better bet.
THING YOU SHOULD GET BRIAN OF THE WEEK
What: McDonalds Fries
Why: Because Brian deserves it.
