After barely surviving the immediate fallout of the government shutdown, Baby Trshmnstr and I braved the post-apocalyptic wasteland to see if the Starbucks gift cards still worked. On the way, we passed by ground zero, one of the hardest hit places in the world by this tragedy… a National Park. Specifically, Manassas Battlefield National Park.
Blood stained these grounds a century and a half ago, and we honor the loss, but this park will now have new historic meaning as the Bull Run ran red with the life essence of the millions who have died because of the government shutdown.
I originally thought that I had captured an image of a valiant National Park Officer shielding the gawkers and rubberneckers from the unimaginable horror that lies beyond the main entrance. Upon further inspection, it was an evil libertarian trying to pillage the piled up bodies for gold and for survivors to put to work in their salt mines. Thank God for the gate blocking their way! Some heroic government employee must have put it in place prior to dying from lack of funding.
We trudged on: me, the less than loyal dog, and the only-partially-aware baby. Oh, to view this horror from the eyes of a babe! What a punishment! A sentence worse than death: to grow up and live a shell of a life surrounded by death and rot! And all because the damn Republicans shut down the government!
We continued to what was once the field hospital, where the wounded were once brought to be hacked up or to be released into the sweetness of death. However, through the wanton cruelty of the Trump, the casualties of today’s Civil War weren’t even given a chance. Only a few straggling survivors were able to make it to the field hospital to revive the building to its most glorified use. The well that once was polluted with the severed appendages and disfigured tissue of battlefield casualties is quietly empty today, the few survivors too disoriented and delirious from the mass gore and violence of the GOP assault.
We finally passed by what was once a gathering place for schoolchildren and other lovers of learning to gaily frolic from historical monument to historical monument. Horses would gallop by and athletes would perfect their fitness in a small utopia built up on government land. Now, all that is left at this alternate entrance to the park is a bevy of burnt out automobiles, husks left from a happier time.
As we drove past this monument to unspeakable violence, choking back tears and vomit, it struck me how this park would look in a far away future, once this turmoil has passed. Much like the neatly lined cannons and artillery pieces that adorn Henry Hill not more than half a mile from this place, a future monument to this oh so frivolous act of hatred will show these destroyed cars lined in neat rows, scorched by the hatred of this nation’s Hitler.
I part with a single thought. As I gaze into the cruel face of government shutdown, I see that the struggle is finished. I love Big Brother.
Shelter in place, American Glibs. I hope yous make it through this alive.
I…I am watching the roadz disintegrate before my eyes. How will I get back to my (most likely burnt and looted) home?!
“I am watching the roadz disintegrate before my eyes.”
I am seeing that too, but it’s Baltimore, nothing has changed.
Click your heels together three times and say “there’s no place like home”.
I like the Democrats new message – illegal immigrants are so much more important than tax-paying American citizens that we are willing to shut down the government for them.
“It’s a bold strategy, Cotton. Let’s see if it pays off for them.”
My guess is no.
My guess is no.
My guess is the Senate caves. Then its up to Trump to veto it, which (if he does) makes the “eevul Republicanz” narrative easier to sell.
Annnd the Donkeys did cave: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/jan/22/dems-give-shutdown-fight/
I guess the poll numbers were much worse for them then we realize.
Pro Illegal aliens and anti tax cuts. That seems to be their entire platform right now outside of the identity politics insanity. I don’t think the midterms are going to turn out as well for them as they think.
You’d think any debates this year would be easy-peasy for Republicans.
“Do you oppose tax cuts that will reduce taxes for __% of American households?”
“Do you support giving people who are in this country illegally citizenship?”
“Do you support allowing men to use the women’s bathrooms and locker rooms?”
My guess is that, outside of partisan Dems who will vote for any (D) no matter what, the party-line answer to those questions will not be popular with swing voters.
Unfortunately, the GOPe is yes/yes/yes, at least at the cocktail parties. Maybe not outright, but they’ll weasel into those.
The positions, not the cocktail parties.
I think you are lying to yourself if you think that the third one of those is going to impact swing voters at all.
Literally the only ones who really care either way are the hardcore SJW’s and hardcore Socons. The other 70% of voters might have an opinion on the issue but it isn’t going to be what swings their vote either way
I think you underestimate the aversion of soccer moms to having their daughters share bathrooms and locker rooms with men. I think you also underestimate their aversion to sharing their own bathrooms and locker rooms with men. But, this could also be confirmation bias on my part.
I think you underestimate the aversion of soccer moms
…or any man with a daughter. Ever.
I have 2 daughters and I really don’t give a fuck if a tranny uses the womens room at the same time my girls are in there and honestly I look down on men who do.
See I am smart enough to recognize that my girls are infinitely more likely to be molested by their school teacher than they are some random stranger in a public bathroom, especially one who gained entry into the womens room by dressing as a woman. Further I would consider a F-M tranny currently dressed and presenting as a male waltzing into the womans room just because she still has a vagina to be far more problematic that a M-F who to all external appearances looks to be a woman. The fact of the matter is trannies are so rare your kids might be in the same bathroom as one maybe half a dozen times in their first 18 years of life and in 99.9999999% of those cases the kids will have absolutely no way of knowing that it is happening because the tranny isn’t droppong Trow until they are safely ensconced in a stall where the kids can’t see the dangly bits.
But Rasilio, you are informed and relatively non-emotional.
And the concern here has never really been about genuine trannies (well, not mainly, anyway*). Its been about genuine pervs using their new legal right to go into the “other” bathroom or locker room.
*I have hardcore Dem partisan doctors complaining to me right now because we have an “uncut” M-F tranny waving xer dick around in the women’s locker room at the hospital.
See I am smart enough to recognize that my girls are infinitely more likely to be molested by their school teacher than they are some random stranger in a public bathroom[…]
I’d tell you to Lighten up, Francis. Meh, carry on.
I didn’t say they liked it but at the end of the day those same Soccer moms are also overwhelmingly either hardcore SocJus or SoCons, of the apolitical portion they tend to be very low information and think emotionally and are easily swayed by the pro tranny argument and so this issue is not gaining republicans many if any votes
How many are already committed partisans, I couldn’t say.
But I doubt that, for the low-info emotionally-driven soccer moms, the pro-tranny argument is going to outweigh their aversion to having men in their, and their daughter’s, bathrooms and locker rooms.
Of course, if the Repubs don’t push the issue, it won’t really matter either way.
That’s only a small part of it.
I don’t like when a small group of people try to tell everyone else what to do.
Want my support on an issue? Don’t cram it down my throat.

Actually, what little I have seen looks like TEAM BLUE caved in exchange for a verbal promise of a future vote being allowed by TEAM RED.

That hospital would still be open if not for Trump.
Oh, to view this horror from the eyes of a babe! What a punishment! A sentence worse than death: to grow up and live a shell of a life surrounded by death and rot! And all because the damn Republicans shut down the government!
That’s what they are.
Just so we’re clear. That is exactly what they are saying.
Only a 5 point spread, and I’m guessing that internal polling numbers weren’t favorable for the Donks since they’re kicking the can down the road a bit now.
A poll is something women dance on. That’s the only legitimate definition anymore.
Also, Trshmnstr, I like this submission. Funny, short, and with pictures.

I would kill for a CA government shutdown.
Don’t keep us in suspense. Kill whom?
We were totally going to invade your puny world (like seriously, for real this time). However our permit requires a functional government must be present to surrender to us.
Damn you mediocre mammals!, you have foiled us again
The Russians can surrender for us, they’re the world’s puppetmasters it seems.
So the Russians control the Kochs, or is it the other way around?
Sounds like the government shutdown has ended.
That was a rough weekend though.
Now we are left to assess the damage, and to collect footage for the 1 Year Anniversary of the Government Shutdown documentary.
Aren’t government offices closed on weekends? So the whole thing lasted 4 hours tops.
Yep…losing 3/4 my expected drill pay plus the orders I was supposed to drilling M-W this week is a bit of a kick in the teeth. Should get it later this year but I need it now. Sure hoping my orders get processed in time for my classes next month. Only requested billets for them in October.
Looks like the new CA motor voter law will go into effect April 1, and automatically register anyone with a driver’s license or state ID to vote.
Since CA only requires proof of residency to give you a license, this looks like a facial violation of federal requirements that only citizens can vote in federal elections. The CA voter rolls will simply not conform to federal requirements.
The question is, what will the feds do about it?
Electorally, of course, this changes nothing unless it catches on in FL or OH.
Frankly, I don’t much care. If you live by our rules and pay taxes, you count more to me than most of my native neighbors….and it’s not like the polls are all that busy. Maybe everyone should get one vote for every $10k in taxes paid.
Not for Pres, but for Congress? This could be problematic.
See we’re not racist in AZ. Honest. Report: Cardinals hiring Steve Wilks as head coach

There’s no way around it. Either Arizona is rife with “unconscious bias”, or the University is running a program which is overtly biased against white people just because they are white and presumed guilty of racism.
Its both and neither. Whatever helps make us appear to be the poster child for de facto racism.
Which reminds me, when are us Arizona Glibs going to go drinking?

That was a rough weekend though.
Fear, uncertainty and dread are no laughing matter.
Here in SW Ohio, the local news has at the top of their page the giant “HOW LONG HAS THE GOVERNMENT BEEN SHUTDOWN” clock.
Also, as home to Wright-Patterson AFB, their breaking news coverage reminds the viewer/reader that while military operations are in full-swing, civilians and contractors may be sent home. That and the Museum of the United States Air Force is closed. I’m doing my best to shelter-in-place.
This gets a Nelson Muntz “Ha-ha!”
I wonder what convinced them to give. It was stupid to begin with, but they clearly thought that either there was some kind of leverage that either wasn’t really there or evaporated, or they thought they’d get some kind of PR victory out of the deal, which, at least so far, doesn’t appear to be the case.
The second, absolutely. And the media coverage naturally valiantly tried to pin this one on the GOP, too, but it wasn’t really taking. Not the way it had in the past. I’m sure it didn’t help to have video clips of Chuck Schumer from five years ago talking about how idiotic it would be to do precisely what they did last week.
the media coverage naturally valiantly tried to pin this one on the GOP, too, but it wasn’t really taking.
I credit Trump’s tweets and an aggressive PR campaign from the White House setting this up as “the shutdown is due to Dems wanting to give amnesty to illegals”. That kind of pushback was notably absent from the Repubs in past shutdowns.
I suspect the timing on this is the result of weekend polling by the Dems showing them not doing well with swing voters this time around. Pollster makes calls, writes up report, report sent this morning, Dems caucus and decide not to die on this hill.
Here’s something from DU.
TheMastersNemesis (9,161 posts)
A CNN poll. Imagine what a bipartisan poll would look like.
There’s two kinds of political polls:
Public polls, which are designed to create public momentum toward one side of an issue by capitalizing on people’s herd mentality. That’s what the CNN poll was supposed to be, but apparently they couldn’t get the result they wanted.
Internal polling is supposed to give real information to people to act on. That’s the polling that I think went south for the Dems over the weekend. They got their asses handed to them, again, by Trump. Given how much they genuinely despise him, that’s gotta really chap their ass.
They just made a spectacle to achieve nothing and realized that the blame game was not really going their way. So then Schmucky Moobz had to say they got some sort of promise from the GOP to debate immigration, to make it appear like they ‘won’ or something like that. Their constituents are jumping up and down right now, truly believing that they just got a million more lifetime voters by ‘standing up’ to those mean old Republicans. The way these people are jumping with joy one moment and seriously depressed the next on any minute thing that happens around Trump, I think they are going to have some sort of complete breakdown before long.
Here’s a good example of how the left will cast out and excommunicate anyone who refuses to go along with whatever the latest group think is.
Greenwald an outcast for not buying into Russia hysteria
Apostates are always hated more than opponents.
I had to look at the headline, “Does this man know more than Robert Mueller?”, a couple of times. At first, I thought they might have actually been ready to acknowledge he had some insight on the topic. Nope. Just blind obedience to authority.
The reason is Russia. For the better part of two years, Greenwald has resisted the nagging bipartisan suspicion that Trumpworld is in one way or another compromised by a meddling foreign power. If there’s a conspiracy, he suspects, it’s one against the president…
Openly admits they can’t claim anything concrete or even articulate what the Russians could possibly be doing that would be considered ‘meddling’, still whines about Greenwald’s position. In one sentence they managed to completely benefit Greenwald’s position.
If there’s a conspiracy, he suspects, it’s one against the president
I think, based on what we already know about the DOJ, FBI, Fusion GPS, and the DNC/Hillary campaign, this conspiracy is not just plausible, but close to being pretty much proven. I would bet that more of the blanks are filled in by the so-far-secret memo circulating in Congress, which I am confident will find the light of day one way or the other before the end of the week.
Nixon went down for asking federal agencies to interfere in an election, a request they denied. The Obama administration had federal agencies interfere in at least two elections, and I am still betting that, no matter what evidence comes to light, Nothing Else Will Happen. Federal agencies are in the process of testing the proposition that they can destroy evidence of their own wrongdoing without any consequences. I am betting that on that front, as well, Nothing Else Will Happen, and the administrative state will finally be free from any kind of oversight or accountability.
Does anyone even know what’s supposed to be in this memo? I somehow doubt it’s much of anything.
I gather its some better-documented connections amongst the various conspirators, especially as it regards the DOJ using Fusion GPS to falsify probably cause for the FISA warrants.
Hell, I think the various Trump defense teams could probably subpoena the Congressional memo if it isn’t released. Wouldn’t that be interesting.
This investigation is a farce, and it’s ridiculous that we’re still spending money on it.
After the latest text messages. Trump has a built-in motion to dismiss. The case is destroyed.
This is the biggest fuckup of Mueller’s life, and that’s saying a lot.
Of course the Russia investigation is a total farce. Sometimes I wonder why Trump has let it continue for this long, unless he’s waiting for them to hang themselves with their own rope. The investigation team is stacked full of Hillary donors and supporters. It was no doubt Hillary and co-conspirators who invented this entire thing and it’s never been anything but politically motivated. You would think that democrats being as dirty as they are, would avoid stirring up a shit show like this. But I guess they really are that desperate.
I suspect some selective leaks were a possibility, but the truth is grinding its way out. No need to hurry up and wind up the operation, when they are cashing big checks…they will milk a few million more and write up something scathing sounding but devoid of legal substance.
After the latest text messages. Trump has a built-in motion to dismiss.
When someone has committed spoliation, there’s a couple of things that happen. They can be held in contempt if it happened after a subpoena was issued (like when Hillary’s crew wiped her server, which was under multiple subpoenas at the time). The other side also gets to basically assume the worst as far as the destroyed evidence is concerned.
This case is almost unique, in that the evidence that was destroyed was DOJ communications that could be exculpatory for the defense. If the defense calls anyone whose texts were destroyed, then they can claim that their due process rights to examine the witness has been violated. If their examination was critical to their defense (and in this case, I think it would be, as it would go to whether much of the other evidence against the defendant was properly obtained and thus admissable), then I think they’ve got a good motion to dismiss the entire case.
An aggressive Congressman could pile on right about now by calling DOJ IT staff and grilling them over the claimed reasons for the failure to archive, lack of backup, lack of oversight, etc. The reasons the DOJ cites for not having the text messages would have to affect far more than the two lawyers at issue; is it really true that nobody who had those phones has any texts archived? That kind of thing.
What are the limits on contempt?
Could the jduge have them held until the evidence is turned over, even if that means for life if they actually destroyed it?
I don’t know if there is technically contempt in this case, because I don’t know if there was a subpoena for those records or an order to preserve them when they were destroyed and/or they were released from the archiving requirements that DOJ has.
I didn’t necessarily mean this case.
But say, the server case, in which the subpoena did exist before it was wiped. Could those involved be held until they agree to turn it over, and since that is impossible, forever?
yes, but as i mentioned in previous thread, the political cost for doing so is probably worse than letting him finally wrap up and go,
“uh, we got nothing, but here are some details which the press can use to go, “RUSSIA” some more for the next 5 years”
I agree he has to let it run its course.
But the coverup by DOJ makes it nearly impossible for Mueller to bring a viable case against anyone.
Nearly any case he brings will ultimately be tainted by the FISA surveillance conducted under a warrant that was obtained by DOJ conspirators working with the Clinton campaign and DNC.
At least Nixon’s party WON the election he cheated in.
But you’re right that if nothing happens, the corruption will only get worse. Banana Republic worse.
I will be genuinely shocked if this entire episode doesn’t fizzle out with no real consequences for anybody that matters. Proving that apparatchiks are above the law, can use their office to go after their political enemies, and in the unlikely event they are caught, that they can then systematically destroy evidence of their wrongdoing.
Yeah, with that set of incentives in place, we will truly be in a banana republic, with rigged elections and an unaccountable government.
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Nihil supernum.
If there’s a conspiracy, he suspects, it’s one against the president…
No, it’s a conspiracy against the American electorate. This President, whose candidacy was certainly targeted, is ultimately immaterial to the matter. The bureaucracy wants to sway elections. It’s an entrenched and privileged class trying to usurp the republican system of government. That is why Greenwald, an avowed socialist who doesn’t support Trump, has a problem with it.
The only real question is why most Democrats don’t have a problem with it.
Because their party descends from classists who wish the crown still ruled the colonies.
They know that the bureaucracy is mostly on their side. Why would they oppose it? Trump will be out of the White House sooner or later, the bureaucracy will stay.
I mistakenly stumbled on to CNN’s home page. They have a government shutdown clock to remind us how long the government was shut down.
Well, you need one because otherwise you wouldn’t even know anything had happened.
So, approximately the same amount of time as it was last weekend + federal holiday?
It’s like holding your breadth. You can die very quickly.
I like to imagine progs being triggered by that clock and going into fits of agony and despair. Makes me feel all warm and cozy inside.
Thank god the government is reopening and the nightmare is over! I could barely get to work this morning what with the dead bodies piling up in the streets and the gangs of roving marauders.
Says you, I worked for one of those gangs and am now going to be out of a job.
Was a sweet gig too, paid medical, dental, plenty of loot and I was free to rape prostitutes and kill dogs and black kids all day long with no paperwork or threat of any kind of internal investigation.
Looks like I’ll have to see if I can get back on the police force now even if it does mean I have to file paperwork every time I use my gun or “detain” a hooker.
“I have to file paperwork every time I use my gun or “detain” a hooker.”
Looks like you’ve forgotten proper protocol already. You meant to say every time your gun ‘discharges’.
Damn you’re right man, got too used to the freedom of the shutdown. Gotta go back to practicing my mantras…

That was quite the guest list to his wedding.
I see we will be moving our embassy to Jerusalem before the end of next year. Assuming that actually happens, I expect this will be a PR nightmare for the Palestinians. They will have to protest, because otherwise they tacitly consent to Jerusalem as the Israeli capitol. And I can’t see their protests not being publicized, or being any different than their usual displays of frothing hatred and anti-Semitism.
That doesn’t even taken into account the likelihood of actual attacks on the embassy. In fact, I expect the people preparing the new embassy for occupancy to be attacked.
A bit risky for the Palestinians to attack a US embassy, especially with someone like Trump willing to cut off their cash at the drop of a hat.
Oh, it will be “rogue elements” who were “provoked” during a “peaceful protest” and were only “defending themselves” against “violent and aggressive” Israeli and American security.
Except they must know that Trump is unlikely to buy it, or are they still that clueless?
are they still that clueless
Wouldn’t be surprised. They have been getting away with similar bullshit for decades. They might well miscalculate based on the fact that its always worked so far.
Lone wolf terrorist attack. The PA condemns the attacks and also the provocation of moving the embassy.
It’s going to finally bring about the 2 state solution.
Israel gets both states.
If I were a Pali, well if I wasn’t indoctrinated since birth and afraid being found face down tomorrow, I’d want want to be in israel too.
The terrorists have done their damnedest to make conditions unlivable for the Palestinians. While the Israelis are not blameless, the vast majority of Palestinian suffering has been a direct or indirect result of terrorist attacks against Israel.

Here’s one of the new Democrat heroes.
Look at my hat!
He says he will pass laws based on evidence.
I don’t know what that means exactly, but it sounds like a nerd not knowing how to see logic and premises.
But maybe that is what he meant.
So, he should lay them out and let us see what conclusions would flow from his premises.
Even if he is a lefty, maybe he is a lefty with principles and not principals.
I question his ability to interpret evidence based on this statement for his daughter:
“Colette, You were born on the #WomensMarch2018 when millions declared they will stand up against a president that openly brags about assaulting women. Things are scary now, but we’re shaping the future to make the world a better place for you. Welcome to #TheResistance.”
Also, he is running against Mia Love, doesn’t that make him a misogynistic racist?
He’s more of a woman than Mia, she’s not a real woman, let alone a block woman. She’s engaged in wrong think and she doesn’t even wear a pink pussy hat like this guy does. So no, Mia’s the real misogynistic racist.
Seriously, does this guy have any self respect wearing that stupid hat in public?
That’s funny, but I can almost hear the”Voting against her own best interests” spiel.
“What a great dad!”
No, the opposite is true.
A REAL dad would shield his young kids from retarded politics.
Trshmnstr, this is a good piece. Thanks!
Grace Mugabe tries to get her cars out of Zimbabwe, collision ensues.
A fleet of supercars owned by Grace Mugabe have been involved in a pile-up as the disgraced former First Lady attempted to spirit them out of Zimbabwe.
A rare £250,000 Rolls Royce Ghost, a Porsche and a Range Rover were damaged as they were driven at night, in convoy through back roads of Botswana to a safe haven in South Africa.
I have mixed emotions about this.
Heh. A bit of sunshine today.
None of these are supercars.
I guess from the perspective that most Zimbabweans either have 2 feet, or a single-speed donkey for conveyance, even a Chevy Chevette would be a supercar by their metric.
I can’t tell if “Variable Speed Donkey” is a piece of mining equipment or a Primus track.
Or a show in Juarez, Mexico. Amirite?
Wait, you mean that email I got from a Zimbabwean Princess asking for my help getting her assets out of the country was real this time?
I played a little Fallout 3 over the weekend. I can only assume it was a brighter scene than the real DC over the weekend.
Hurry up and finish that so you can move on to the good stuff, New Vegas.
I played New Vegas and 4 first, then went back to play 3.
You’ll probably be a bit disappointed by the lack of depth in that game, especially compared to NV. It look me about 30 hours to finish it and I was like meh, it’s not on my list of top RPGs, but it was ok.
The ending of 3 pissed me off to no end. It’s not the worst ending I’ve ever encountered in a video game (NWN 2 actually used “rocks fall, everyone dies”), but it’s up there.
Meh, I played the Mass Effect series, that was a bad ending after playing through 3 full games that made it seem like the ending could be great. But I still enjoyed the games.
I should reinstall Andromeda and actually play it. One of these days…
hmm, they didn’t put Andromeda on steam. I’ll probably just keep forgetting to buy it then.
Yeah. ME3 was a terrible ending as well. As for Andromeda not being on Steam, EA stopped putting most of their stuff on Steam a while ago, trying to make Origin something worth installing.
“EA stopped putting most of their stuff on Steam a while ago, trying to make Origin something worth installing.”
I already have Uplay on my puter, how could it be worse than that?
I didn’t say that because spoiler, but yeah, it’s bad.
No spoilers there, just mentioning it’s a terrible ending. Seeing as how it’s almost 10 years old, I’m fairly certain it’s out of any spoiler warning zone anyways.
Yeah so far it isn’t as good. But it’s fresh content before I start getting mods for the other games and replaying them.
New Vegas is by far the greatest game in the series.
One of these days I’m going to go back for a “bad” ending, as opposed to the NCR ending or the independent New Vegas endings I always seemed to end up with.
(I can’t be a bad guy. I also never did a dark side run in Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic. I’m a terrible libertarian)
Yeah, I usually end up playing the way I would make decisions in real life and usually end up with the milquetoast endings.
“But Dad, they don’t have any roads in Far Cry Primal.”
“I played the game the whole way thru’ and by the end of it, there were no roads, every facility had a heroin vendomat in it and the only functioning part of the economy was Mexican Ass Sex.”
In a real libertarian game, that would be exactly what it’s like. Only orphans, you forgot orphans.
i still felt the “enslaving people” options were more-limited in Vegas compared to FO3
if i can’t create my own slave-colony, i just don’t see the point
Fallout 2 was the best (once they patched the bugs out). In what other game can you be forced into a (literal) shotgun wedding, and then sell your spouse into slavery? What other game rewards you walking around with live grenades and explosives in your pocket to ethically kill child pickpockets?
Blackest of Isles.
Fallout 3 has one thing going for it. One very big thing:
You can fire nuclear weapons at supermutants in the ruins of the Capitol building.
You joke but there are no buildings left taller than the Washington monument left in the Capitol.
I was unemployed for almost 4 whole hours. Can you believe it? Almost 4 fucking hours! I’m incredibly traumatized. My safe place wasn’t available. I think I need therapy. Maybe I could get on disability for this.
Man, that was a short vacation. Damn that Trump, he really is worse than Hitler.
Owls ODing on the devils weed.
Why will no one think of the owls?
There’s just no end to the damage climate changes is causing.
That’s actually pretty fucked up, why not get a bunch of Farm Cats and be done with it,
Paging Sugar-Free! You may have some competition.
TW: potentially bile-inducing.
I think the guy has the same hair stylist as Mark Davis.
I was thinking Tiny Tim-esque. But Ill concur with your assessment.
God damnit, now they are going to accuse all of us swinger types with kids of doing the same shit
Well, in the 1st place, polyamory is wrong. Wrong, wrong, WRONG.
Either its polyphilia, or multiamory. You cant just mix latin and greek word roots.
