Fair enough, but you're posting in the "Politics" section right now, so of course it's going to be political. Tongue

Blink Oh right, yeah... the politics section. Fuck me. I just sorta assumed this was in casual coffeehouse.

How could you possibly know that? Consider

She can do simple math. Carrier claims the move would have saved $65 million and 65>>7. It's not that hard. You can do it if you try. Let me know if you require tutoring and I can set you up with an 8 yo somewhere.

Good news! Now you can get Trump-scented candles. Though you'll have to scroll through the article on Trudeau-scented candles to read about it.

But this is no ordinary pile of shit. This shit is on fire! <--- Typically when you type that phrase you don't mean it so literally.

"I can never, and will never, change any of the haters.
It's not about them. Not this time and not here.
This was about binding up the wounded; about showing compassion and empathy for the hurting and fearful among us.
Or, in some christian traditions, this was about washing my brothers' feet."

Justin Normand, I salute you.

Good news will be when Trump is impeached and sentenced to prison for being a Russian puppet.

I'm having difficulty lately of believing anything the FBI says anymore.

And I do mean anything.

I wish I had a government I could actually trust but I don't anymore and haven't for a long time. Perhaps the trust I felt before was simply an illusion, I can't say, all I know is that I used to have much more faith that most were trying to do the best they could....

Today, it's not about that, today it's more about pandering to either the their religious beliefs that harm others, or pandering to the donors who line their pockets and most times it's both at the same time.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Gee willikers, more good news for Christians. trumps pick to head the Education Department, Betsy De Voses is a proponent of bringing church back into everyone's life. Ah yes...lets all go back to the 1950's.

Here's a recording from an interview she and her husband gave, both working together to shove religion down people's throats. Whoop-de-do.

Once again, fuck you trump. Fuck your family and fuck your pick for the head of Education.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
