I blame the architet, Gehry. Who was born in Canada IIRC. He probably spells funny to this day.

People who build Gehry buildings are members of the Oligehry.

Death by a thousand strokes. Killed my Great Grandmother, my Grandmother, may yet kill my Mother and will probably kill me before I reach the end of my Trump jokes and the Internet.

Any old fool who would book a cruise with Glenn Beck is either insane or has Alzeheimer's Syndrome and should be watched very carefully. Also, they should get their money back, dammit, because they are technically minors.

Ooooohhhh, I get it now. I never watched that guy so I didn't get the headline. What was his name again? All I remember is that he should be hated. Oh well, can't be everywhere at once I guess.

The most important thing about Glenn Beck is that his whereabouts are unknown in 1990, when that little girl was raped and murdered.

People Spent Thousands To Go On A Cruise With Glenn Beck.

"What better way could there be to let your family embrace the faith, culture and values that you cherish than to let them experience it for themselves in the places where it actually happened: Jerusalem, Athens or Venice?" reads the website for the cruise.


I think this might actually be the one my dad invited me to join him on.  I turned him down; Avenue 5 was running at the time of his invite, and I had a feeling they'd try to throw me overboard like the one hapless dude that played the higher-up in The Office.

"And we thought it would be nice to be around like-minded people and not have to worry about political conversation or any innuendos."

It'd be interesting to have a count of how often that cruise ship hears someone say "uppity n*****s"

Getting scammed by a seedy grifter is basically the epitome of laissez-faire capitalism.

I'd say you got your money's worth there.

THESE are the people I feel great pity for today. The crew members still in a limbo, literally. How many are STILL on ships that the media has forgotten about and moved on from discussing?

Some crew members have spent days in small, windowless rooms with no information about when they will be going home as their ships float in and out of U.S. ports. Some are on long journeys crossing the Atlantic Ocean without any assurance their home countries will allow them to dock. Some were told for weeks that their ships were virus-free only to see colleagues quietly evacuated to Miami hospitals days later.
Many feel like an afterthought after watching cruise companies use diplomatic and logistical channels to promptly repatriate passengers.

This is some real "martime law/gold fringe" bullshiat right here.


The seafarers have little recourse. U.S. labor laws do not apply to cruise ship workers as the companies and ships are registered abroad. The International Labor Organization, an arm of the United Nations, recommends that cruise companies pay crew members at least sick wages during the COVID-19 pandemic, whether the crew are quarantined on land or on a ship.

Remember when Trump had that big "covid' meeting a few months ago with the Cruise ship CEO's?

I wonder if the fate of those crew members in limbo was discussed at all.

Multiple passengers told BuzzFeed News they have begged CruiseBuilder, the Utah-based travel agency that handled the bookings, to give them information as far back as February, when the coronavirus outbreak in Italy was becoming severe and as cruise ships were in the news as major vectors of the virus.

That's the problem right there. Whle most people crack on Utah for dumb shiat that either isn't true or is no longer an actual thing, this state is the farking king of pyramid schemes. Like there are big office buildings for this shiat, it isn't hidden. This money was used to line someone's pockets for sure...

Anyone remember when Beck came out and apologized for all his conspiracy-mongering and that he regretted the part he played in fueling partisanship?

...and then it didn't pay the bills so he went back to yelling about George Soros?

I have a crazy theory that L.O.L. also stands for Lack Of Love, a North Korean programming that causes people to be brainwashed into not giving a shiat about their fellow human being. If I was talented like Phillip K. Dick, I would write a dystopian short story about it.

but we are in dystopia, aren't we.

Glenn Beck is such a piece of shiat that he made fun of a couple on air for their miscarriage.

If you like and/or trust him, I genuinely don't care if he kills your kids and/or pets in front of you. Nothing you love has any worth.

When I got to that part I found myself wondering who would trust a cruise company based in a landlocked state. Then I remembered these were people who were spending thousands of dollars to rub elbows with Glen Beck.
