  1. Asteroids are the likely source of water on the Moon.

    Space fracking will ruin that asteroid water.

    1. Ice Pirates are already on it.

    2. Not sure what the co-ed Battlestar Galactica bathrooms have to do with it.

    3. You laugh, but the gaiafreaks are already whining about how planetary exploration is “ruining” supposedly pristine sites.

      1. To be fair, those golfballs on the moon made us a galactic laughingstock.

        1. That brings up an interesting question. Is humor universal?

          1. Let me answer that question by posing another:

            Do women have a sense of humor?

            1. Yes, they’re just not funny

        2. You try hitting 4-iron in a Michelin Man get up. Galaxy laughs either way.

        3. I believe the Apollo 11 landing site has been named a National Historical Site by the US Congress, but I don’t know about the sites for the other landings. The golfballs were from Apollo 11 (Alan Shepherd), and I don’t know whether they travelled outside the boundaries of the NHS (if any).

          1. How does Congress have authority to name anything outside the US as a national historical site?

            1. Same way the U.S. could invade Panama to arrest Noriega for breaking U.S. law:
              Because FY,TW.

          2. Apollo 14. Feb 4, 1971. Shepard shanked his first swing and then hit one about 200 yds.

            1. He probably won a proposition bet.

            2. 200 yds. into a water hazard.

        4. Do you think Alan Shepherd gives a damn what anybody else thought about that?

        5. You laugh shitlord, but I’m sure the exogorth that got one of those damned golf balls stuck in its blow hole wasn’t laughing!

      2. So they’re more than Gaiafreaks.

    4. Armageddon is the future. Michael Bay IS a genius.

    5. Hello.

      “Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump a “fraud” and his Trump University a “scam.””

      She’s a scam.

      1. Well, she is a world class expert in frauds and scams.

        1. In the Standard Model of Politics, Clinton Global Initiative is the antiparticle of Trump University.

        1. Towlie, you’re like the lamest character ever.

      2. Something, something, stones bricks… something, something, glass houses mansions, something…

      3. I can hardly wait for Trump’s response. Glass houses and all that.

    6. you know, the man just upped my rent last night
      cause water’s on the moon

    7. What you should be worried about is GMOs (Galactic Modified Organisms).

      1. If there is going to be any galactic organism modification, then I want some Kryptonian DNA.

    8. Water on the moon can be used to clean the rings around Uranus.

  2. The new president of the Philippines says some journalists deserve to be shot, because they’re corrupt.

    At least he didn’t call for them to be woodchipped.

    1. “Am I wrong? Am I wrong?”

    2. Really sense the new guy calming troubled waters in South China Sea.

    3. In the Philippines, they use machetes to create mulch.

    4. But what did he have to say about Trump? What did Trump have to say about him? How the hell is this newsworthy if it has nothing to do with Trump?

      1. I think the media has already called the guy a southeast Asian Trump.

      2. They probably won’t be regional enablers of each others’ worst tendencies. Not at all.

  3. UCLA went on lockdown during an apparent murder-suicide, but police say the campus is now safe.

    Isn’t it a gun-free zone in a background check state?

    1. Well, it’s a stand your ground? and pursue state.

    2. Cue the calls for common-sense gun control.

    3. Don’t worry. The reality will be rewritten to fit the narrative. It always is.

    4. What California really needs is another law moar gun lahzzzz!!!

    5. That gun free zone is a magic force field, right?

  4. UCLA went on lockdown during an apparent murder-suicide, but police say the campus is now safe.

    SWAT has driven back to base, so, yeah, now safe.

    1. Um, murder-suicide kinda leads one to believe that they were safe before the lock down.

  5. Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump a “fraud” and his Trump University a “scam.”

    Oh, boy — are the debates going to be great!

    1. We truly do live in the best of all possible worlds.

      1. +1 Dr. Pangloss

    2. This is the only thing keeping me from crying.

  6. Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump a “fraud” and his Trump University a “scam.”

    On the twitters? Because that’s where you level those kind of charges. Social media.

    1. Only belatedly did Hillary’s team realize @nothillaryclintonsecretwitter missed the point of Twitter.

      Afraid of her reaction, Hillary’s team did not inform her until two sprints into the next epic.

  7. Gary Johnson says he stopped using marijuana to be “knife sharp.”

    So then it sounds like the two major parties will need to draft Ben Carson’s belt buckle to stop him. REMEMBER THAT STORY?

      1. You know, they guy who thought the Egyptians invented Hefeweizen while erecting the Sphinx or sumthin’ like that.

    1. Oh great, Gary is already calling for violence.

    2. So can we expect to hear Anthrax “In My World” at the campaign rallies now?

  8. (((Echoes))), Exposed: The Secret Symbol Neo-Nazis Use to Target Jews Online

    Neo-Nazis, anti-Semites and white nationalists have begun using three sets of parentheses encasing a Jewish surname ? for instance, (((Fleishman))) ? to identify and target Jews for harassment on blogs and major social media sites like Twitter. As one white supremacist tweeted, “It’s closed captioning for the Jew-blind.”

    The origins of the symbol ((())) can be traced to a hardcore, right-wing podcast called The Daily Shoah in 2014. It’s known as an “echo” in the anti-Semitic corners of the alt-right ? a new, young, amorphous conservative movement that comprises trolls fluent in internet culture, free speech activists warring against political correctness and earnest white nationalists. Some use the symbol to mock Jews; others seek to expose supposed Jewish collusion in controlling media or politics. All use it to put a target on their heads.

    1. Is this like that secret logo for pedophiles that toy companies put on toys? So many secret symbols when you know where to look!

      And I’m pretty sure ((())) has something to do with bbw.

    2. I’m suspicious. I’ll hold out until Reason’s resident alt-right expert (looking at you Robby) weighs in on it.

    3. )))Winston’s mom(((. She is tired.

    4. I wonder if they still do that with Melania (((Knauss))) Trump, Ivana (((Zelnickova))) Trump, Ivanka Trump (((Kushner))), and Lara (((Yunaska))) Trump? Or did they all earn their Ehrenarier card from their willingness to carry Trump seed?

      1. Damn. Those cards must have been worth a lot of money.

    5. The Daily Shoah

      I haven’t recalled this for years, but back when Yahoo! News allowed comments, I would post as Shoah Me the Money. It really was the wild west back then.

      1. The Daily Shoah hasn’t been the same since Jon Stewart quit. Oy!

    6. Quick, somebody call Robert Langdon to verify this.

    7. I thought that symbol represented Hilary.

      1. You must be thinking of a pentagram.

  9. Solid gold, diamond-encrusted eagle statue worth millions stolen in Ladner

    Delta Police are looking into the robbery of an 18-pound, solid-gold, diamond-encrusted statue in Ladner, worth about $5 million according to the statue’s owner.

    Sgt. Sarah Swallow says the heist occurred “on the street” Sunday night in the 4700 block of 57th Street. The owner, Ron Shore, suffered minor injuries, was treated in hospital and released.
    Ron Shore

    He said the eagle had been on display for four days at the Art! Vancouver exhibit and was in transit when the theft occurred, while it was being loaded onto a vehicle.

    “I struggled as hard as I could and yet wasn’t able to prevent the robbery,” Shore said.

    Probably should have invested in some armed guards, or seomthing, sheesh.

    1. How long until it turns up in the hands of a sultry red-haired broad in Los Angeles, painted black to hide its identity?

      1. Damn your nimble fingers.

        1. Rikki-Tikki-Tavvi, bitch!

      2. There’s no time for this schoolgirl act.

    2. The Maltese Falcon?

    3. Sarah Swallow

      Cousin of Holly Goodhead.

  10. The cop who shot Corey Jones in West Palm Beach has been charged with manslaughter and attempted first degree murder.

    I cannot begin to figure out how he was indicted for *attempted* first degree murder when the guy died.

    1. Whoops. Forgot the link.

      Also, this was apparently part of the recorded conversation. The cop should’ve been charged with first degree murder just based on this:

      According to the transcript included in the charging documents, Raja asked Jones several times if he was “good,” before transitioning to demanding he put his hands in the air.

      Raja: You good?

      Jones: I’m good

      Raja: Really?

      Jones: Yeah, I’m good.

      Raja: Really?

      Jones: Yeah

      Raja: Get your f***ing hands up! Get your f**king hands up!

      Jones: Hold on!

      Raja: Get your f**king hands up! Drop!

      Then, according to the documents, Raja fired three shots in rapid succession, prompting an AT&T call center operator who had been on the phone with Jones as we waited for the tow truck to exclaim “oh my gosh!” Then, 10 seconds later, Raja fired three more shots.

      Prosecutors say that Raja then called 9-1-1, about 30 seconds firing his last round.

    2. Well it worked in Canada.

    3. So they can throw it out on a technicality?

      Duhhh!

      1. Actually, this is apparently the answer. It still doesn’t make any sense.

        “Oh, the first five shots, he was really trying to kill him with those. But the shot that actually killed him? Totally not on purpose.”

        The State Attorney said that five of the shots fired at Jones are attempted murder, but the single shot that killed him was due to negligence for various missteps they say Raja took before and during the shooting.

        1. That’s amazingly blatant.

        2. I’m sure anyone who fired 6 rounds into a guy on the street would get the exact same charge.

    4. I cannot begin to figure out how he was indicted for *attempted* first degree murder when the guy died.

      That is the logic the judge will use to rule “not guilty”. See Illinois.

  11. Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump a “fraud” and his Trump University a “scam.” Trump is set to visit his golf course in Scotland a day after the United Kingdom votes on whether to stay in the European Union. Gary Johnson says he stopped using marijuana to be “knife sharp.”

    Three events in one is bad.

    Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump a “fraud”

    Takes a fraud to know one.

    Gary Johnson says he stopped using marijuana to be “knife sharp

    Dammit does this mean that Reason will have to disavow him?

    1. Abuela Totally-Not-a-Neocon, may I present a mirror.

    2. No. We still get the Mexicans and the Ass-Sex. So long as we keep the Mexicans, Shika is in, and as long as we keep the ass-sex the rest of em aint going anywhere.

    1. Therein lies an irony. The left loves to rail against CEO pay (where the average salary – around 300k I believe – is far lower than the gazillions they think CEO earn), but Democrats do get their ‘fair share’ of support from them, no?

      1. Crony capitalism, how does it work?

        1. How does it work?

          1. It “works” really hard to not. 😉

      2. Salary does not equal total compensation. Usually it’s not even half.

        1. Given that the non-salary compensation for CEOs is mostly made up of stock, which is to say unrealized gains, it’s kind of immaterial. The conflation of stock with pay is disingenuous.

  12. http://observer.com/2016/06/ho…..-security/

    Only Hillary knows exactly how much blackmail information Russia and China, and who knows who else, has on her. But this is just a fake scandal. Donald Trump was mean to some journalists yesterday and that is what is really important.

  13. Asteroids are the likely source of water on the Moon.

    My dad had asteroids so bad he couldn’t sit down for a week!

    1. Asteroids? I hardly knew ‘eroids.

  14. MSPs vote in favour of a fracking ban as SNP abstain

    The Scottish Parliament has voted to support an outright ban on fracking after SNP MSPs abstained.

    1. So they voted for poverty.

      1. Well, they voted not to be even richer (and not send as much money south). Scotland already exports a ton of oil and natural gas.

    2. Scotland is going through the opposite of the Scottish Enlightenment.

      1. So they are pushing the sheep away from the cliffs???

      2. The UnEnlightenment has arrived!

        1. The Retardation.

  15. Obama: Prepare to Flee Climate-Caused Hurricane Devastation

    “it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared for a disaster. And that means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit.”

    With all due respect, President *Sanders* would provide every citizen with such a kit.

    1. While climate deniers are getting ready for RICO prosecution…

      Florida sets record: 10 years without a hurricane

      1. Florida’s been hit by an average of one hurricane every other year over the last 12 years. It’s just that all of them hit in the first two years of that.

        Statistics are fun!

        1. But we just had a monster tropical storm depression system event hit South Carolina.

          /Weather Channel

      2. They’re just saving up for the big one!

        like earth-quakes!

        Which are also because of AGW!

        1. I thought they were due to fracking.

    2. I thought he said the oceans had begun to recede and the earth to heal. Was that not true?

    3. Encouraging people to hoard? That can’t be…

      1. I still can’t buy any fucking .22 at the local Wal-Mart because he was so good at encouraging hoarding.

    4. It really isn’t a horrible idea to have a disaster supply / emergency preparedness kit on the ready.

      Maybe that’s just cause of years in the scouts.

      1. That’s what the ATF is for.

        Alcohol, wacky-tabacky, floozies.

      2. No it’s not, but to do so because of CAGW is silly. You put a smoke detector in your house in case their is a fire. Not in case their is a fire because CAGW has turned your home into a tinderbox.

    5. Oh, I just noticed!

      “it is every citizen’s responsibility”

      *Not* every resident.

      1. !!Obama Advocates Mexicans Dying Via Hurricane!!

        Extrapolation is fun!!

    6. Climate-caused?

    7. This is a perfect example of what I love about the cognitive dissonance of the average prog: They try their hardest to scare the shit out of everyone about “climate change” up to and including painting some ridiculous “Day After Tomorrow” scenario for our future and then are shocked… SHOCKED… people would dare to want to horde emergency previsions and own firearms.

      Either they are too stupid to believe they would be effected by their ultimate boner of a scenario (because Government would save them or something?) or they really don’t believe the bullshit they are constantly shoveling.

      1. They’re just that fucking stupid.

  16. The new president of the Philippines says some journalists deserve to be shot, because they’re corrupt.

    What’s he’s saying is that some “journalists” who manipulate interviews with gun owning citizens by selective editing ought to be put “Under the Gun”.

    1. Journalists might have greater numbers who deserve to be shot, but have a higher average.

  17. http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/…..re-voters/

    After 6 years of giving Obama everything he wanted and allowing him to do anything else, the GOP Congress is ready to flex its constitutional muscle against a Trump administration.

    Pardon me while I throw up.

    1. Keep us in charge, and we’ll keep the president?whoever it is?in check.

      “The Stupid Party”, indeed.

      1. They have done such a great job of that over the last six years. Stupid, insane, delusional, there are not enough pejoratives to describe these people.

    2. After 6 years of giving Obama everything he wanted and allowing him to do anything else, the GOP Congress is ready to?

      Too lazy to click the link. Does the WSJ say this, or is that a John statement? Because it’s utterly retarded.

      Yup, “6 years of giving Obama everything,” such as…

      Carbon taxes/cap-and-trade
      “Card-check” legislation
      Gun control
      Higher spending, more taxes to pay for it
      Immigration reform, which is why Obama went the “pen and phone” route
      Subsidies to health insurance companies, which is why the administration illegally dispersed the money
      Paid sick leave bills
      Ban on fracking/oil drilling/natural gas
      Approving Merrick Garland or some SC nominee

      I suppose screaming “GOP CUCK FAGS SURRENDER TO BLACK GUY” is easier for conservatives/Republicans/Trump supporters.

      1. I guess I missed all that. I was paying too much to

        $10 trillion dollars in national debt
        An illegal and worthless deal with Iran
        Complete discretion to rewrite and enforce Obamacare as he wishes
        Every single judge and cabinet appointee Obama wanted
        Full funding for Obama’s make sure people in the suburbs live next to poor people HUD program
        An illegal war in Libya
        Ignoring and selectively enforcing immigration law
        Reading Title IX to cover transvestites
        continuing to use the IRS to target conservative groups, (yes that is still going on and no one has paid any price for doing it)
        His crony capitalist TPTP

        Yeah, they have really showed Obama who is boss.

        1. You forgot the worst – no debt ceiling

          1. And letting the EPA regulate CO2. I forgot that one. They funded that and let Obama do it because he might have vetoed the spending bill and that would have been bad.

        2. John, you’re exactly right about all of that. But it could be worse still.

          That doesn’t mean pretending the GOP Congress is like Pelosi and Reid controlling Congress makes it true. The Repubs suck, but there are people who could suck even worse (better?) than McConnell or Ryan.

          1. Every single judge, sans the SCOTUS appointment. They are still confirming judges today, six months before the election. Those worthless mother fuckers should have never confirmed another judge after they took the Senate. And now they are going to be all tough guys with Trump.

            Fuck them. They are worthless fucking leaches, every single one of them.

            1. And the problem? They are completely right to confirm judges with Clinton about to become president.

        3. So they haven’t impeached him. That’s “giving him everything he wanted.”

      2. It’s really an asinine statement. The GOP are hardly ushering in a glorious era of drastically reduced government but to say they’ve just rolled over for Obama is absurd.

        1. It’s really an asinine statement. The GOP are hardly ushering in a glorious era of drastically reduced government but to say they’ve just rolled over for Obama is absurd.

          Yeah, ^this^.

          I’m not defending the Repubs, but they’re just mostly incompetent and/or scared of a black president (and his media worshippers).

          But RepubCons like Rush Limbaugh love scaring the hell out of their supporters and whipping them up into a frenzy even it means spouting bullshit about the GOP “actively helping” Obama.

          It’s like how if you don’t vote for Trump, you’re for Clinton. Because the GOP obviously owns your vote.

          Backwards logic.

        2. Sure other than spending and borrowing, judgeships, cabinet appointees, enforcing the law, holding anyone in the administration accountable for any misconduct no matter how serious, and illegal wars they were all over the guy.

          What do you have? Oh, they didn’t try to unconstitutionally ban and confiscate everyone’s guns. Yeah, that totally means they didn’t roll over for him.

          1. I completely cede the point on spending, John, although one could argue it would’ve been higher had Obama had his way completely. I don’t think it’s fair to say the GOP has just opened the door for all judicial appointments as I believe there are still over 50 being held up, including an Associate Justice. Congress has no constitutional authority for “enforcing the law” and these illegal wars are illegal because Congress failed to authorize them. Barring voting to impeach him on these things, I don’t see how the massive executive overreach committed by Obama in half the things you’ve listed is on the GOP’s head.

            1. Barring voting to impeach him on these things, I don’t see how the massive executive overreach committed by Obama in half the things you’ve listed is on the GOP’s head.

              But impeachment is really the only way to force a president to respect the Congress’s prerogatives. You can argue that, for political reasons it was better to not impeach Obama, but by making that decision, Congress share responsibility for every illegal action that he has taken.

          2. 1. Republicans like spending.

            2. Spending IS lower than otherwise thanks to the sequester. Don’t bait Shrike to get involved here.

            cabinet appointees

            You know they sued Obama over his recess appointments, right?

            1. “You know they sued Obama over his recess appointments”

              Yes, but the agency got created and Cordrey appointed. A loss.

      3. This. It’s simply not true that the GOP gave Obama all he wanted. They even had a few decent achievements, like borking the Ex/Im bank.

  18. UCLA went on lockdown during an apparent murder-suicide, but police say the campus is now safe.

    Well…

    1. There are many males with penis’ running about…

      1. Those males better go catch them. Sheesh, if you can’t train better than at least use a leash.

    2. …until another apparent murder-suicide, that is.

  19. The new president of the Philippines says some journalists deserve to be shot, because they’re corrupt.

    Sounds like something Clinton or Trump would say ? in a private setting. Out loud? Even they aren’t that dumb.

    1. They are not that smart. I can’t think of a platform that would be more universally popular than a pledge to shoot every journalist in Washington. Can you? It would finally be something everyone could get behind and bring the nation together.

      1. I can’t either, John. But they wouldn’t pledge to shoot “every” journalist. Only the other guy’s journalists.

        Then everyone will get behind that.

        1. Nah. I think most people hate them all. Just shoot them all to be on the safe side and let God sort out the good ones.

          1. Woodchippers for everyone!

      2. I can’t think of a platform that would be more universally popular than a pledge to shoot every journalist in Washington

        Pledging to shoot every Democrat in Chicago would be wildly popular. Hell, a few Democrats get shot dead every day in Chicago, but that’s like removing a few grains of sand from the Sahara.

      3. A pledge to provide everyone with super model concubines would be pretty awesome too.

    2. You’re giving Trump and his supporters too much credit. He’d say it and they would lap it up.

      1. Anyone who couldn’t lap that up has no heart.

  20. He can’t stop smoking, he became addicted the second the THC hit his blood.

  21. http://www.knoxnews.com/opinio…..03511.html

    Jonah Goldberg gives us today’s beltway conservative delusion. It is going to be a 4 way race with Bernie, Hillary, Trump and that Dreamy Mitt Romney and that is going to put Romney in the White House!!

    Beyond the fact that there won’t be a four way race, even if their were, Mitt Romney would finish butt naked last in such a campaign. These people have lost their minds. They really don’t get it.

    1. [Hillary] reveals herself to be some sort of animatronic device sent from the future to bore us to death (which would make her ineligible under the “natural born” clause of the Constitution).

      He made a funny!

      1. Jonah can always spot another model.

    2. Hell, Johnson has a better chance of getting elected than Mitt Romney.

      1. I agree. How can you have your head so far up your ass that you think Mitt Romney is popular?

        1. Same way you can have your head so far up your ass that you think The Donald will be good president.

          1. You are so smart and erudite Bobarian. Have I mentioned that lately? You are not one of those people. Don’t worry.

            1. I love how whiny and butthurt you get when people call you out for being a dumbfuck. It’s obvious why you’re so sensitive-the truth hurts.

              And Donald won’t be president.

              1. Aren’t you some Canadian who voted for Trudeau?

          2. Could he be worse than Choco Jeebus or Her Cankles? -No.

            1. He can be and is.

  22. Anyone else having trouble getting the comments to load?

      1. Come to think of it, it has been quite a while since Hitler commented.

    1. I’ve had trouble posting comments since last week. The Comment box just freezes up.

      1. Euphemism?

    2. The am links would show comments for me.

      1. Wouldn’t. They didn’t exist.

    3. My IE stopped working here this morning so I had to go to Firefox. On IE it says at the top I’m logged in but I’m locked out of the comments. At first I thought maybe I had been banned for calling some retard a retard or for posting the two Sumi Jo links last night but I’m not banned on Firefox so maybe it’s just the MS incompatibility bug.

  23. UCLA went on lockdown during an apparent murder-suicide, but police say the campus is now safe.

    As always, the paper of record has many photos.

    It is worth a click just to see how fucking scary that must be. Wow.

      1. And, um, crowded together. Just sayin’.

      2. There’s a single donut on the sidewalk

    1. This one cop tried to climb some stairs, after the third step or so he was already out of breath.

    2. That’s just conditioning. Soon, we will all think that is normal.

      1. I’d get shot in a heartbeat. Some up-armored fattie telling me to get on my knees while I am walking down a sidewalk doing nothing? Suck my twisted hog.

        1. ^THIS

          Holy shit, I’d be shot in a second. Think the drill instructor in Full Metal Jacket when he starts telling Pyle that he is a fuckup and gets shot.

    3. Why the hell are they dressed like soldiers? And why the hell are they pointing guns at innocent students? Why the hell did they need a whole fucking platoon? Fucking wannabe pussies.

      1. 1. They want to play dress up. game time = war time! 2., I think that turns them on. 3. field trips!!1!

  24. http://arstechnica.com/tech-po…..-kid-porn/

    sex with a 17 year old is legal in Texas but a naked picture of a 17 year old is child porn and punished with a five year minimum mandatory for mere possession. Yeah, that makes sense.

    1. That is kafka-esque in its degree of absurdity.

  25. An Al-Shabaab suicide car bomber killed at least 10 in a hotel in Mogadishu.

    Obviously there’s too much freedom in Somalia. If only they had common sense bomb control like us.

    1. Gotta watch out for them shish kabob motherfuckers.

  26. Something called ‘The American Thinker’ channels their inner Harry J. Anslinger.

    According to the latest reports coming out of Colorado, marijuana is a major cause of homicides in the state, and the problem is only getting worse.

    OMG! Devil weed!

    Legalization will not reduce the need to acquire resources ? often illegally ? to purchase a drug. In fact, it generally increases the problem, as Colorado is showing. Since marijuana makes users, in non-technical terms, stupid and lazy (note to liberals: this is #science and #fact, aka settled science), the drug thus poses severe challenges toward the acquisition of money via legal means in order to satisfy the corresponding habit.

    Science!

    This social experiment has failed miserably. Time to recriminalize marijuana in all jurisdictions as a means of minimizing, as best as practical, the damage already done.

    For the children!

    *barf*

    1. They need to prove it’s addictive. And they won’t, because they can’t.

      1. Doesn’t matter. Addictiveness as a quality is hardly a prerequisite for prohibition.

    2. The legalization proponents overlooked a basic fact that District Attorney Brauchler’s comments make clear ? you will always require money to purchase pot, whether it is legal or not, and it is that need to acquire currency to procure the addictive drug that is a primary driver of marijuana-related crime.

      So a county DA with absolutely no proof or explanation claims that legalized marijuana is causing crime because the desperate dope fiends are robbing to get money to buy the stuff and this guy takes that and runs with it.

      Both tobacco and alcohol are as addictive or more so than pot. Why don’t we hear stories about people committing crimes to buy tobacco or alcohol?

      Why does this subject always make people retarded?

    3. This word “thinker.” I do not think it means what you think it means.

  27. Gary Johnson says he stopped using marijuana to be “knife sharp.”

    There’s multiple layers of stupid embedded here.

    – If you’re going to make a case to the public for the legalization and normalization of weed… acknowledging sans any prodding that it has the effect of “making you stupid” isn’t exactly a move by a clear-minded, sharp-witted person.

    – knife-sharp? as opposed to “knife”-dull? its sort of redundant, lame, and less potent than “razor”. “”I’m taking Ritalin and overloading on Ginko Biloba for MY campaign!! FUCKING YEAH WHERES THE VOTERS I GOT ALL THESE FUCKING IDEAS COMING OUT OF MY PORES”

    – The more he emphasises weed, the more he’s easily pigeonholed and co-opted by others. “The Weed-smoking republicans? lol” Dems want legal weed too, but at least they’re not *crazy* amirite?

    1. Which Dems want it legal?

      1. The ones who Tribe Blue voters assure me exist but have no proof of.

      2. I was parodying a typical “mainstream” lefty perception

    2. I see it as no different than someone acknowledging giving up drinking for the same reason. I do see your point though – the general public is unlikely to see this the same way.

  28. http://www.usatoday.com/story/…../85216494/

    Third baby born with zika defect. But fuck it, the federal government has priorities. A fucking cross dresser might not be able to use the women’s restroom somewhere. Who has time for disease and mosquito control?

    1. Time to break out the DDT.

      1. Will that get rid of the trannies?

    2. This is just a liberal plot to create a future victim group.

      1. No. It is a God damned crime that ought to result in the people responsible hanging from lampposts.

    3. Well, they keep blaming Congress for lack of funds, but as far as I can tell, the CDC has time to study non-diseases like obesity and gun violence but not Zika.

      1. Exactly.

    4. Time to shit our pants!

  29. Speaking during a press conference on Tuesday, Duterte, who was elected in a landslide on May 9, said: “Just because you’re a journalist you are not exempted from assassination if you’re a son of a bitch.” He was responding to a question about a reporter who was shot dead last week in Manila, the capital. He went on to say that many journalists who have been killed had “done something,” such as accepting bribes, that justified their deaths, or were corrupt.

    And really, people shit their pants over Trump. This is how people have done politics like for-ever.

    People want to pretend that the West is just one strong-man from becoming a totalitarian dictatorship, but the fact is that we’ve mostly let it happen already by gradually undermining institutions that protect liberties. Trump OR Hillary wouldn’t even need to pass any new laws to have their own federal police-state. Its already here, its just that we use different marketing to fool ourselves its different.

    1. Pretty much. The only thing that worries the pants shitters in the media is that Trump isn’t one of them. He might actually use the powers of the police state on someone who matters. And we can’t have that.

      1. I think that Trump is too unpredictable for them. They can never be quite sure what he’s going to do and I don’t think anyone knows.

        Hillary, OTOH, is the most predictable person in politics, she will drop her drawers for a dollar any time of the day, and there will be scandals on top of scandals, and they all know it. They know exactly what to expect from Hillary, which makes them feel secure.

        1. Yes. There is no danger she will ever change anything or go after someone who matters.

        2. Hillary, OTOH, is the most predictable person in politics, she will drop her drawers for a dollar any time of the day, and there will be scandals on top of scandals, and they all know it. They know exactly what to expect from Hillary, which makes them feel secure.

          Thanks, Hyperion! I really needed to barf. Been long overdue for a good barfing.

    2. Trump OR Hillary wouldn’t even need to pass any new laws to have their own federal police-state. Its already here, its just that we use different marketing to fool ourselves its different.

      As long as we have elections, and the caudillos retire after their turn is up, Americans will continue to believe that we are free.

  30. An Al-Shabaab suicide car bomber killed at least 10 in a hotel in Mogadishu.

    …signaling that it was tea-time on Wednesday.

    1. How the fuck do you get a car bomb anywhere in Somalia? I mean there are no roadz there, so WTF?

  31. Rikers Island: Man Spent 5 Months at New York Prison Without Knowing His Bail Was $2, Lawyers Say

    Aitabdel Salem was to be released from Rikers in late 2014 after being arrested on assault charges but was not released until April 2015 due to dollar bails on two minor offenses, his lawyers said.

    1. Typical

    2. Who the fuck would even make the bail $2?

      1. There were two bails of $1 each. I suspect it’s some sort of technicality, like “selling” a car to your nephew for $1. There is some reason they can’t give a PR bond, but the offense is so petty that they’d rather make it easy for people to bail out, to save the beds for more serious offenders.

    1. it claimed it could test for 240 diseases from a few drops of blood?and for A-listers like Henry Kissinger and Bill Frist on its advisory board.

      How did anyone not laugh in this broad’s face after hearing that claim? The fool and his money I guess.

      1. Frist was just there for his cat-testing expertise.

        But the Theranos blood drop testing still seems like a good idea to me. Why do they need to take a cupful to check for a few impurities?

        1. Because it is not that simple. If it were, someone would have already done it.

          1. Spoken like someone who has no idea what they are talking about ie typical John.

            The advances made in DNA sequencing and RT-PCR over the last 5 years is staggering, and makes Theranos’s goal totally doable.

  32. Lysander Spooner fan pays his speeding ticket in pennies.

    I laughed.

    1. Needs more slow-mo, but gangster.

    2. Why did I scroll down to the comments?

      This habit rarely leads to anything good.

      1. i did the same thing.

  33. Obama Goes on “Myth-Busting” Tour To Pump Narrative

    Obama attempted a nearly line-by-line takedown of claims Republicans have made about his policies holding the economy back. He dismissed those GOP voices as “anti-government, anti-immigrant, anti-trade and let’s face it, anti-change.”

    “My bigger point is to bust this myth of crazy, liberal government spending,” Obama said. “Government spending is not what is squeezing the middle class.”

    Obama and his aides have long signaled frustration that as the economy has improved, the public’s perception of his decision-making hasn’t tracked the same trajectory. Obama brushed off his opponents’ refusal to give him credit as a symptom of their decision early on to reflexively oppose all of his ideas.

    Sub 2% GDP growth, low-employment participation, decline in home-ownership, stagnant wage growth, etc….. these are all explained by Racism.

    1. He dismissed those GOP voices as “anti-government, anti-immigrant, anti-trade and let’s face it, anti-change.”

      We mock her but damn, Dalmia has some high-level influence!

      1. Conservatives are supposed to be anti-change.

      2. DALMIAAAAAAA

      3. Well, she’s not wrong. Usually.

    2. Yeah, Obama, those huge insurance rate increases, which is now mandatory for everyone, and sky high deductibles aren’t squeezing the middle class at all. It must be nice to live in a bubble where there are paid sycophant retards to echo those voices in your head.

      1. Notice Obama didn’t outright defend his administration’s statist regulatory policies.

    3. “and let’s face it, anti-change.”

      They… they are called conservatives. You’re not crossing a line or anything by saying this.

    4. Highest percentage of people between 22 and 34 living at home with mom and Dad. Yeah, great job, Obama. Can’t wait to see what else you’re going to do.

      1. Highest rate of 65+ living with family.

  34. “The new president of the Philippines says some journalists deserve to be shot, because they’re corrupt.”

    I ain’t gonna argue with yer premise Mr. President, but the same applies to most presidents ya know??

  35. You know who else was knife sharp?

      1. Is he back in town?

    1. #NotGaryJohnson?

    2. Edward Scissorhands?

      1. Close. Freddy Kruger.

        1. I almost threw that one out there.
          So fricken close!

    3. Bryan Adams?

  36. Stovall Middle School: Arrest Warrant Issued for Houston Teacher Impregnated by Student, Police Say

    Teacher accused of sex with teen student turns herself in

    Prosecutors said Alexandria Vera, 24, had a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old student. Vera is an English teacher at the school, and the eight-grade student was in her class, officials said.

    The pair’s relationship apparently had the blessing of the boy’s family, according to court documents.

  37. Keith Olbermann: Commentator Criticizes Media for ‘Its Failure to Ask’ Donald Trump ‘Tough Questions’

    “Who will stand up and point at the emperor standing in only a comb-over and ask where in the hell his clothes are?” Olbermann wrote in a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter.

  38. Poland: European Union Issues Official Warning to Country Over Constitutional Court Changes

    The EU issued an opinion stating that recent actions by the Polish government, specifically changing rules for placing judges to its top court, pose a threat to the union’s “rule of law” principle.

    1. So this is a plank in which party’s platform?

  39. Myspace: Time Inc. Says Hackers Infiltrated Social Network and Made Data Available Online

    The data breach, which occurred before Memorial Day weekend, involved usernames, passwords and email addresses from Myspace accounts created before June 11, 2013, Time Inc. said on Tuesday.

    Soo… ALL of them, then?

    1. MySpace still exists?

      1. Now with more retard

  40. Kate Beckinsale: Actress Says Director Michael Bay Criticized Her Appearance on ‘Pearl Harbor’ Set

    “I think he was baffled by me because my boobs weren’t bigger than my head, and I wasn’t blonde,” Beckinsale said Friday on “The Graham Norton Show.” She also said that Bay told her to lose weight.

    1. …,Beckinsale says. “Then when he was asked about me, he’d say, ‘Kate wasn’t so attractive that she would alienate the female audience.’ He kept saying it everywhere we went.”

      Bay is retarded. Kate is spectacular.

      1. I’ll be in my bunk

  41. Race-Pandering Politician Tries to Artificially Lower College Costs = Gets Called Racist

    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) ? A North Carolina lawmaker who proposed to slash tuition to just $500 a semester at five public universities that serve mostly blacks, American Indians and the poor says he is scaling back on the idea after running into mistrust and skepticism so fierce that he was called a racist.

    For weeks, administrators, faculty members, students and alumni have warned that the drop in tuition revenue could damage the institutions. And they said they didn’t trust assurances from the Republican-controlled legislature that it would make for the lost funding with up to $70 million a year.

    Others warned that a rock-bottom tuition of $500 would look bad and cheapen a degree from the schools involved.

    Apodaca says his goal was to make college more affordable and boost enrollment.

    1. The black and the red have the same right to extravagant indebtedness as the white man.

  42. Are Michael Madigan and John Cullerton still drawing breath?

  43. RE: Clinton Calls Trump a Fraud

    Pot calling kettle black.

  44. UCLA went on lockdown during an apparent murder-suicide, but police say the campus is now safe.

    By “police” you mean multiple local agencies AND several Federal agencies. For gunfire.

    1. I”m not sure what happened or why, but I think we should ban assault weapons anyway–just to be safe.

  45. “The new president of the Philippines says some journalists deserve to be shot, because they’re corrupt.”

    I wonder if Preet Bahara is trying to extradite him.

  46. The black box is at the bottom of the sea. Huh.

  47. I see it as no different than someone acknowledging giving up drinking for the same reason. I do see your point though – the general public is unlikely to see this the same way.

    “I’ve cut back on the breakfast bloody marys during my campaign.”

    “That wuss isn’t presidential material!”

  48. Sanders with a great endorsement. Sorry if this has been posted, I’ve been busy.

  49. http://electiongraphs.com/2016ec/

    I’ve never heard of this site before, and don’t know if they are as amazing as Nate Silver, but it’s a great little Electoral College info spread based on current state polling. Not a shocker: doesn’t look good for Trump.
