That last one reminded me of this*:

Which, in turn, led me to this Facepalm

It’s the great port-a-potty cover-up for President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. Workers preparing for the Jan. 20 event have taped over the name of the company “Don’s Johns” — that has long supplied portable restrooms for major outdoor events in the nation’s capital. Virginia-based Don’s Johns calls itself the Washington area’s top provider of portable toilet rentals. But the name apparently strikes too close to home for inaugural organizers. Workers have placed blue tape over the company name on dozens of portable restrooms installed near the Capitol for the inauguration. The company’s name is clearly visible upon close inspection, but is blocked for a wide-angle view by a TV or still camera."

Seriously, we must be part of some sort of giant, Truman Show-like thing, mustn't we? Mustn't we?! Shocking

BTW, have you guys seen this? Genius!





*Though, the two *can* be hard to tell apart. On the other hand, portable toilets are not *always* full of shit, unlike Dung's Dump's Don's supporters Dodgy

RE: #alternativefacts
Trump making an ignorant statement about crowd size is one thing. Being stupid and wrong is protected under free speech. Conway, lying her ass off when being confronted with pictures that show beyond a shadow of doubt (and what Tomasia is doing here with trying once again to lead a thread ad absurdum is beyond my me) the facts about the size of those crowds, and then calling her lies "alternative facts" is another thing and worrysome. But lying and ostensibly showing your character faults is still part of free speech.

The scary part was when they threatened the free press with consequences if they continue to point out that Trump is ignorant and his staff dishonest. When liars are threatening your for exposing their lies, then you should be worried about your freedom, because they seem to have bigger goals then just spreading lies

This can't be highlighted enough.

The slippery slope to government interference on press freedoms has already begun. It will not end well.

Trump needs to be impeached. Immediately. His lies are intolerable, and he hasn't even been in office for a week.

Even some of his Republican allies have had enough are calling for him to stop lying. Sources:

Actually i dont think this is a slippery slope problem at all, thats what i was trying to say. Slippery slope gives benefit of doubt to those engaged in it, and assumes some kind of good intention and bad execution, or something like not able to see a line that should not be crossed.

I will rephrase what i said:
If liars, whose claims are demonstrated to be true are threatening you then
#1 they intentionally lied
#2 they knew exactly what they were doing
#3 they dont care to be caught by you at all
#4 they think they can bully you into submission to whatever their greater goal is

Its one thing to have a run of the mill dishonest kind of lying-ish politician trying to wasel somehow out of what he just said.
Its a complete different ballpark if someone threatens you (publicly! On TV! For everybody to see!) with consequences should you keep pointing his lies out. This.is.Goebbels

When you face stuff like this, you are dealing with crminals with absolutely no remorse, and they are in control of your government now and oviously they are in the process to set up a propaganda apparatus.

Welcome to *insert your favourite tyranny*

Girly, dear, you're slipping. Are you okay? Confused





Actually, I kinda like it. Okay, it was Marmite, really, and I only had it once. In Brazil, of all places, 'cause a Brit had brung it with him all the way to Reno Rio. Ain't I globalised. Or something Rolleyes

You have learned well, grasshopper. The garbage collection and reference grounding duties are now yours. I have gotten lazy and left many pointers dangling. Big Grin

Sounds like some sorta plastic explosive. Probably tastes like one too. Hell you can probably use it like one.

Well, I did have a headstart. Was even considering starting a thread in which the whole conversation consists entirely of song lyrics (back when I was still here, I mean Rolleyes )

Quote:Not sure. I think I'm seeing dancing trolls.

And now I’ll spend the entire night, racking my brain, trying to remember where on Earth I know this song from. ‘Cause I sure as hell have seen it before, online or in a movie or something. Damn you [Image: damnyou.gif]

But if we’re gonna be talking about Aussie bands (and in light of PO(tu)S’ environmental and energy “policies” Angry

"And the company takes what the company wants
And nothing's as precious, as a hole in the ground"






"If I yell out at night there's a reply of bruised silence
The screen is no comfort I can't speak my sentence"
Undecided


Frankly, it tasted like a slightly buttered warm piece of toast with a bit of soya sauce on it. Which is something I kinda like, so I did enjoy it. What can I say, I like savoury things (boy, did I and the Brits have a hard time trying to explain the meaning of the word “savoury” to… well, can’t remember if it was the Americans or some other nationality but they were having trouble grasping the idea. Not sure why.)

PS. If Full Circle starts scolding us, in his new capacity of assistant chief whip, or whatever it’s called, I’d like to point out that it was Girly who started talking about slightly weird bread spreads Angel

One of my favourite songs, lyrics-wise, is by Men at Work, actually…

You can actually probably something like vegemite or marmite in your grocery store. Look for vegetable soup stock in a jar as paste. I've had them all and they are basically the same thing. I use it in soups and stews and gravies all the time.
