It's true.  although i do appreciate that it seems like it's only going to be using the original 150.  Or at least I didn't see any pokemon that I didn't recognize not being in the original cast (I haven't payed any attention to them past that point, and that weren't any that I didn't at least recognize)
certainly a quality to appriciate. surely standing out for it's benefit from the early 21st century pulp. etc etc gag gag adhgdsfadsadsasd sorry

You'll likely be denied at first because every state is doing that(low fundzzzz), but if you look at your state's misconduct law you'll see that you usually have to be fired for something outrageous in order to be disqualified for unemployment benefits. Continue claiming every week if you get denied and file for an appeals hearing, once that comes around just honestly explain to the judge your situation and you'll likely win(and get back pay for the previous weeks you've claimed). Lately I've been doing a lot of organizing and outreach to unemployed/fired/evicted/etc folks in my area and you might be able to find some kind of volunteer attorney service for unemployment cases in your city if you sniff around a bit(try googleing around for community law centers)

most states are "at will" employment states, meaning companies can hire&fire whoever the fuck they want whenever/for whatever the fuck they want. With the labor market the way it is, employers that don't have to deal with unions all have their unskilled workers under their heel and will crush anyone for the smallest reason simply because they can and they can find/train a replacement fairly easily given the huge rise in unemployment. welcome 2 america

Esh should make a twitter. He's clearly a big enough dickhead to have one. I'm campaigning for him to get a twatter.

To those who didn't see because I got pagebumped:

Every now and then I need to reassert my hatred for the right wing by getting into a Twitter argument with a random right winger. Preferably one active in the media.

i was laughing like a child at the scene in that clip.  james' voice is my favorite aminé voice of all time.  it's one of my favorite voices in general.  the only thing that even comes close is the lady who did sailor moon's voice towards the middle of the series who spoke in the way i'd imagine a turkey would if it could talk
