In this particular clip, you'll recognize every political argument you've ever had packed into three oversimplifying minutes. With dragons. At 2:00, they say what we're all thinking. At 2:37, I guffaw.

Here's Why We Can't Have Nice Things

HBO's "Game of Thrones," if you aren't familiar with it, is basically a show about a bunch of fantasy-renaissance realms fighting each other, and *SPOILER ALERT*, a bunch of hungry ice zombies hurtling toward them.

In this particular clip, you'll recognize every political argument you've ever had packed into three oversimplifying minutes. With dragons. At 2:00, they say what we're all thinking. At 2:37, I guffaw.

LOL! It was all a spoof on guns. Right?
But seriously, this is about as close as it gets to ANY time in history regarding ANYTHING to do with human beings, since the beginning of humanity. If it isn't guns, it's dragons, it isn't dragons, it's_____(fill in the blank) Neanderthals were supposed to have evolved by now, weren't they? Who remembers staring at their reflection in a pool of water for days and days and days and not being able t figure it out. Hands up!

You are welcome Brian and Angelika. I'll say yes Beverly!
You cannot currently send a star to Angelika because you have done so within the last day.

Well done, but that is NOT from the Game of Thrones not even for this coming season. It would never fit, though I guess most viewers are younger and just might not get the not so subtle approach to politics. True enough it is a fantasy show, and full of violence. If you haven't seen the Throne, well it speaks for the theme.

I think this would be an excellent PSA. Where can I get my dragon? I have a hunch J L is hiding her dragon, is that dragon properly licensed?

BTW...that picture is from season one.

Did you give your dragon a name Angelika? LOL I haven't seen the episode yet. Yes it is fantasy and it is well written for a TV show.
BTW didn't Ronnie Raygun tell you you could have anything you wanted? I suppose the Wicked Witch of the Midwest at the second last DNC convention let it slip that you couldn't because she and her minions didn't think you were smart enough; mature enough or capable enough to manage your own finances and responsibilities. Therefore if elected she was going to take a lot of your privileges away. Barky carried out the mandate anyway. So thank you Hillary. BTW you need a new broom.

Interesting how many different fill in the blanks are emerging from viewers isn't it?

Amusing. Though I venture to say that Anne McCaffrey in her Dragon Riders of Pern series of novels would certainly agree that dragons don't kill people, lol. The truth is in the video, people kill people. Sadly.
