Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.
It’s a miracle!
That’s been the Republican strategy since day one of Obama’s presidency. Block the President at every turn, then blame him for not getting anything done. In fact, here’s Newt Gingrich openly admitting to it.
That’s why Republicans block jobs bills — so they can blame Obama for the economy still sucking. They’ve blocked budgets, resulting in a government shutdown that they then tried to blame on Obama. They’ve tried over and over again to block Obamacare, and complain that it’s a failure as they work their asses off to try to make it fail.
It’s kindergarten politics, and we need to vote these schmucks out in November. A bunch of white guys throwing temper tantrums and shouting NO! to everything just because they don’t like the president is no way to run a government, especially if we’re going to continue to pretend to be one of the greatest nations on earth.
Giles, everything’s just been so…
Pretty much this.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen another game that can quite match the Personaverse for its cast of lovable idiots.
(If there is one, tell me because I want in on that.)
If there’s one thing I dislike about what people say about Yukari’s character in The Answer, it’s when they say it ‘contradicts’ her development in the Journey. In a way, it did push her back to square one, yes.
But it was simply another cycle of development.There are countless parallels in The Answer that connect to Yukari’s actions and development rather well:
For instance - the parallel between Yukari’s Father & the Protagonist.
- Both men died suddenly, causing Yukari to isolate herself from others.
- She didn’t get a chance to tell either goodbye before it was too late.
- The reasons for their deaths were unknown until Yukari found out.
- Both were prominent figures in her life. Her beloved father and her leader, friend and implied love interest.
When Yukari was upset about her father, who was the only one who came out to help her? The Protagonist (whether he wanted to or not). Now he’s the one dead.
Which leads to the other parallel: Yukari and her mother. As we know, Yukari’s mom had terrible means of coping.
- Yukari’s mom coped with her husband’s death by sleeping with douchebag men and neglecting her only child to the point where she moved out.
- Yukari coped with her father’s death by isolating herself and developing trust issues.
- Yukari coped with MC’s death by isolating herself and forcing herself to forget by looking ahead.
For most of Yukari’s life, she swore that she would never be like her mother. She eventually wanted to understand her, but she never wanted to know her pain.
Not only does Yukari understand it, she’s living it.
