  1. 245) We were talking yesterday about NBA players being trained to take a condom home after a one-night stand. But that brought up something for me: What’s the point? I don’t mean of taking the condom home–what’s the point of banging somebody if you have to wear a condom?

    Is that what all one-night stands are like? Or sex with groupies? Puts being a pro athlete or a rock star in a whole different light for me. I never considered before that Mick Jagger or Gene Simmons or Wilt Chamberlain were wearing condoms for all those chicks. Seriously, I would pass with any female if she wanted me to wear a condom. I would rather wait for a blood test to come back, or whatever.

    Maybe I’m spoiled, I’ve been married since I was 23. I’ve never really played the field. And I won’t lie, consequence-free sex with an attractive young lady would be tempting. But with condoms, I wouldn’t even want to. I don’t think this is just an old man talking?20 years ago, I hated condoms just as much. It’s like you’re not really getting it on. Maybe it’s just me. Am I making sense here?

    1. Condoms = alcohol-free beer = designated hitter = high school graduation lock-ins = well-done steak

      1. Using a condom is like washing your foot with a sock on.

        It gets wet but it doesnt get clean

        1. It’s like the inverse of that actually. It stays clean but doesn’t get wet.

      2. Same here. Fucking with a condom is as much fun as watching a video of people on a roller coaster.

        Although for some guys, just the “conquest” of the female feeds their massive ego. That’s not really part of the appeal of sex for me.

        1. So, you can’t get off unless there is no condom? I mean, I guess I’d rather not wear one, but I still go. And if I am going, I am ultimately still enjoying the experience, right?

          1. Right, I usually can’t finish if I start with a condom on. Not to get too graphic, but I’m not lacking in the girth department. They tend to leave a painful ring-shaped indent around the base (even the large sizes, which are mostly just longer).

            1. The purple ring at the base happens to me too, but I have found a brand or two that works. Have you tried Theyfit condoms from Europe? I am sure they have something for you. Get some dirty Europeans to ship you some.

              1. Get some dirty Europeans to ship you some.

                So, pretty much any random European.

      3. designated hitter

        Bad example: condoms take away from the action, they don’t add to it.

        1. Spoken like a man whose pitchers don’t know how to play baseball.

      4. I didn’t know you were from Sub-Saharan Africa.

        1. It’s like eating the candy with the wrapper still on.

    2. We were talking yesterday about NBA players being trained to take a condom home after a one-night stand.

      Worst advice ever. You bring the condom with you TO the one-night stand. If you’re taking it home with you afterwards, you either didn’t do it right, or you’re a disgusting person with no sense of good hygiene.

      1. I think the point is that leaving your genetic material around like that exposes you to trumped up rape charges and potential child support demands. You don’t have to take it home, but you don’t want to leave it there.

        1. Yes, they’re also advised to flush it. I doubt sanitation workers are in favor of that method, though.

          1. Plumbing company owners love it though. Its a nice profit generator.

    3. Hello.

      Clean Hands Freak is a mystery.

    4. Do you need us to explain how babies are made?

      1. Coincidently, I just happen to have a banana and a condom on a table right in front of me, so if you need a demonstration let me know.

        1. You need a stork, too. Oh, and some tape for it’s beak.

          1. Raping a stork is one weird fantasy, but Rule 34.

            1. Leda and the Swan. Apparently some have had the fantasy.

      2. Go on…

    5. It does amaze me that there are people in long term, monogamous relationships who use condoms.

      But if you are interested in casual sex, you want to be careful. Condoms are a drag, but I wouldn’t say they render it pointless (unless you are one of those procreation-only people).

      1. All it takes is one good pregnancy scare to drive home how much you DON’T want some people in your life for the next 19 years.

      2. “It does amaze me that there are people in long term, monogamous relationships who use condoms.”

        Why?

        My wife can’t use birth control, and I am too young for a vasectomy to be easily approved or paid for.

        I am more amazed that you’re amazed by something so un-amazing.

        1. You are right, I should be less amazed as there are a pretty good number of cases like that. For some women, birth control doesn’t work very reliably either.

        2. I am too young for a vasectomy to be easily approved or paid for

          “Approved” by whom?

          “Paid for” by whom?
          They’re not that expensive.

          1. Insurance. And my doctor.

            “They’re not that expensive”

            What kind of sucker pays for it when it is completely covered for me in 2 years?

        3. My wife can’t use birth control

          ANY kind of birth control? My wife uses the implant rather than the pill, and the only times she’s gotten pregnant is when she didn’t have it in.

          1. It’s anecdotal, but I know 2 dudes that had vasectomies because of the issues their wives had with both pills and implants.

            1. I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised. It’s not like birth control pills or implants are “natural” in any sense–women are altering and disrupting their biological hormone cycles when they take these, and it stands to reason that some of them would not react well to it physically.

      3. I’m in the same boat as a couple other commenters. My wife has been through several birth control methods and none of them worked right for her; made her feel like shit, killed her desire, etc. We don’t want another kid right now but we do want another so a vasectomy isn’t on the table. Condoms it is.

        Get a good-fitting condom made of the right material and it’s fine. Feels different, but not so different as to be unenjoyable.

        I think it also helps that, since we are a committed monogamous couple who are “okay” with an accident happening we’re willing to use some thinner materials. If I were a professional athlete screwing my way through every town and worried about paternity suits driving me into poverty or catching some disease I wouldn’t risk it with the “Super-ultra-thins”

        1. My wife is off BC because she’s between pregnancies and the pill can be a bitch to get on and come off of. Outside of that I’m in the exact same situation.

          Helpful note for readers: Trojan makes a terrible product. Stay far away.

          1. What about an IUD?

            1. Never looked into it. We’re lazy and condoms are good enough.

    6. This is such a strange comment.

    7. “what’s the point of banging somebody if you have to wear a condom?”

      Not sure if serious?

      1. What’s the point of masturbating if you have to wear a sock?

        /Same basic reason

  2. “I happen to be a clean hands freak. I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as much as possible.”

    The pussy grabber?

    1. I see these as mutually reinforcing rather than mutually exclusive.

    2. Also, you so slow.

      1. Burn!

    3. I figured it was Lady Hillary Macbeth.

      1. She no longer possesses the hand-eye coordination to wash her own hands.

        1. I figured that’s what Huma is for.

          1. aren’t there a bunch of videos where her right eye goes wonky? seemed that way i’ve never seen this one before

          2. aren’t there a bunch of videos where her right eye goes wonky? seemed that way i’ve never seen this one before

    4. I am confident that anything I hear about Trump can be written off as complete bullshit.

      1. Thanks, HuffPost commenter.

  3. Florida millennials want no part of this election:

    They’d rather hang ten, chad than hang a chad, right?

    1. Too busy smoking the meth and molesting alligators.

      1. Florida Millennial?

    2. Nice pun +1 historical reference to how a stolen election happens.

  4. Forget this “Hillary is unlikable” stuff. Hillary is downright inspiring.

    Help us, Barfman! You’re our only hope.

    “[Trump] threatened to jail her for the crime of being a successful woman in the public eye.”

    Forget it Barfman, you were too slow! ***BBAAAARRFFFF***

    1. It’s all rationalization.

    2. Anyone who believes this woman is ‘inspiring’ is literally – and I mean literally – functionally retarded and without hope.

      1. You’re not inspired by a woman who is strong enough to hang on to her husband’s coattails so tightly?

        1. She’s an inspiration for little girls everywhere: if you’re willing to be as mendacious and corrupt and capricious with national secrets as she is, you too can be a ladyparts president.

          1. I somehow doubt this; much like the One is ensuring a generation before another black man will get a whiff of a chance at that seat, Hill would ensure about 100 years before another woman gets a shot.

            Hellary could possible cause the 19th amendment to be repealed.

            1. Once Hillary is elected, we can look forward to her packing the SCOTUS and to the Democrats importing an electorate that will ensure no Republican can ever attain the Presidency again.

          2. But only if you have the luck to hitch your wagon to an ambitious and powerful man whose coattails you can ride so long as you enable his criminal assaults of women.

    3. Although we may never reach peak derp, we are reaching new derp heights each day!

      1. “. . . it is plain to see, we need a derpendectomeeeee” /sings.

    4. The way she lines her pockets by selling access to power, the way she skates instead of facing felony charges….INSPIRING!

      1. Making hundreds of millions of dollars through a career in “public service”! See, she’s just as successful at business as Trump!

  5. Boko Haram has “released 21 of more than 200 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram Islamists in 2014,” Reuters reports based on a Thursday statement from the Nigerian government.

    Bring Back Our Publicity.

    1. Of course at around the same time Boko Haram had murdered hundreds of boys, but nobody gave a shit, because Patriarchy, I guess.

      1. Yeah, I always thought it was strange how nobody bothered mentioning that little detail.

    2. Unfortunately they were shot by some dentist on the way home.

    3. Michelle is gonna use this success when she runs for President.

      I helped bring our girls back!

      In fact, she’ll be the first hashtag black woman Prez.

      1. It’s funny that you think she will still have to actually run for president by the time she is ready to take the throne. We should be well-entrenched as a third-world banana republic under single party rule by then

    4. Boko Haram has released

      A Whiter Shade of Pale was overrated, but most of their other stuff was underrated.

      1. I had no idea they were still performing, but they were never the same once Trower left.

  6. Permit me: That illustration makes Dylan look like a clown.

    1. It’s a statement that the Nobel comittee is seeking new ways of beclowning themselves after that Obama Peace Prize incident.

      1. Chuck Berry was robbed.

    2. No, no, no…harlequin.

      1. “*Harlequins* to the left of me”?!

    3. Dylan look like a extremely creepy clown.

  7. A new Pew Research Center survey finds 57 percent of Americans favor marijuana legalization, nearly twice as many as a decade ago.

    Unless they vote that way, it doesn’t matter.

    1. So, I had this conversation with my mom (76 years old) about marijuana legislation & ballot proposals a few weeks ago. Michigan has legalized medical use (which has its problems, but is better than nothing), and earlier this year had 2 proposals for recreational use, which are both not on the ballot now (thanks to review of signatures, and finding that some signatures were more than 180 days old, which disqualified them).

      Anyway, my mom launches into this rant as to how recreational use will pretty much be the end of society. No way was she going to see that it’s no bad thing. Medical use, she has no problem with, however. I am used to such “logic” in my family, so I just shake my head.

      1. Years of pop culture brainwashing won’t easily be overcome.

      2. My parents had an End Of The Republic reaction to Washington and Colorado’s legalization. Mom is 80, Dad’s 84.

  8. accusing Donald Trump of non-consensual kissing

    yeah, but was it con sensual?

    1. I’m not sure why I should take Trump’s alleged sexual assaults seriously, when they are being reported on less than 30 days before the election. I certainly take them less seriously than Bill Cintons which we’ve known about for decades.

    2. Non-consensual would be pro-sensual, right?

  9. “I happen to be a clean hands freak. I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as much as possible.”

    Michael J. Fox’s character on Scrubs?

    1. Jesus, I must have tuned out early in that series.

      1. You didn’t miss much. That show lasted about 5 seasons too long.

        1. Comedies seem to have a shelf life of about 5-6 years before they end up turning into a self-referential mess. I’ve found the ones that last longer than that are typically driven by audiences tuning into them more out of habit than because the quality of the shows remained good (I’m thinking of Big Bang Theory, Friends, Cosby Show, Family Ties, the Simpsons–ones that sort of turned into something resembling a perpetual motion machine rather than a television series).

          1. Comedies seem to have a shelf life of about 5-6 years before they end up turning into a self-referential mess.

            I agree, though I’d contend that The Simpsons peaked after that window (it’s a unique case). Oddly enough, some of the most beloved recent comedies (Community; Arrested Development for example) start out that way and it seems to make the core audience love it even more while making it harder to sell to a wider audience.

            1. On the subject of Scrubs, I thought it’s entire run on NBC remained excellent and finished right on time.

              Whoever decided to desecrate the corpse and move it to ABC should be drawn and quartered, and displayed at the studio as an example to others.

              1. It’s early run overlapped with my time in college, and I enjoyed it. I didn’t really watch after I got out, but it was still on NBC the few times that I tried again and I didn’t think it was any good.

                Agreed on the ABC thing. Whose bright idea was that?

            2. I agree, though I’d contend that The Simpsons peaked after that window (it’s a unique case).

              Oh absolutely, but even then it wasn’t that much longer. I saw an article a couple years ago that rated the episodes on a “must-see/okay/skip it” basis, and it was telling that most of the must-see episodes took place in the first ten years of the show, which is around the time I stopped watching it on a regular basis. Maybe the costs of production are why it’s remained on the air for so long, in the same time slot no less, because it’s certainly hasn’t been because the shows have been good.

  10. The 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature goes to Bob Dylan for what the Nobel Committee describes as “having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.”

    I like Bob Dylan, but isn’t there a pretty clear distinction between music and literature?

    1. Right. Just because there’s no Nobel Prize for music doesn’t mean you can just start making things up.

    2. He’s, like, a poet, man!

      1. Poetry isn’t literature either.

        1. That’s just, like, your opinion, man.

    3. I mean, read the lyrics without any music….is it still deemed to be good in its form, structure, and poeticness (is that a word?)? Now it would be kind of stupid to judge Dylan without including the music, but shouldn’t you do that for an apples to apples comparison in a prize for literature?

      One gets the impression that at least certain Nobel prize committees have become a way for committee members to meet celebrities that they like.

      1. Nobel Prizes for the subjective artsy subjective things are completely without credibility at this point.

        They permanently damaged it by shit like this and handing out peace prize to Arafat and Obama.

      2. I mean, read the lyrics without any music

        I think that’s a good way to look at it. A lot of lyrics, including really good ones, don’t really stand too well on their own without the music. A lot of the time when I read the lyrics to a song I like a lot, I’m surprised at how few words there are and how little it really says. The music and performance really fills in a lot of meaning.

        1. I avoid looking at liner notes now for this exact reason. A lot of songs seem meaningful until you actually look at the lyrics and are like, “Is that all there is?”

          Although, I suspect Dylan’s lyrics are among the few that would hold up on their own. I’ve always thought Natalie Merchant’s stuff was pretty poetic, too. Not sure who else. Maybe people who are storytellers, like Tom Waits.

          1. Leonard Cohen

          2. Peter Mulvey.

          3. I’m not knowledgeable about hip hop, but I suspect there are artists whose lyrics would hold up very well on their own.

            1. +1 Aesop Rock

              1. Holy fuck yes.

          4. Adam Duritz.

            1. The Counting Crows’ first album was fantastic.

          5. Bruce Cockburn. And, to a lesser extent, Gordon Lightfoot.

            Also +1 re: Leonard Cohen.

            And k. d. lang when she’s covering Cohen.

        2. To be fair to Dylan, when he sings his lyrics, he’s not really improving their delivery, so just maybe there is some merit to his poetry?

    4. And thus the path – slippery slope if you will – of prize being awarded to Lady Gaga.

    5. If they’re handing out Nobels in Literature for lyrics and they didn’t give one to Chris Kenner there should be a thousand people rioting in the streets. Or at least dancing

      1. If Kenny Loggins isn’t in line, the whole Nobel Committee is in the danger zone!

    6. I don’t know if there is such a fine line between music and poetry. I’m not sure that his lyrics really stand up as good poetry on their own.

      If I was going to give a literary prize to a songwriter, it would probably be Leonard Cohen.

      1. Ok, you beat me to Leonard Cohen.

    7. Now that music is officially sanctioned as Nobel Prize eligible, we must ask – When will Kanye finally get his due?

      1. Yes, when will he finish his slow fade back to obscurity?

        1. You know white people get money don’t spend it
          Or maybe they get money, buy a business
          I rather buy 80 gold chains and go ig’nant
          I know Spike Lee gon’ kill me but let me finish
          Blame it on the pigment, we living no limits

        2. Suckers like Drake are selling millions of records. Kanye’s not going anywhere.

          He’s a retarded man-child, but the dude has legitimate talent and sees music as more than just a vehicle for getting paid. He’s also already a massive celebrity with a giant ego, and those guys don’t leave the spotlight quickly.

        3. When Kim Kardashian takes half his shit?

  11. who described Trump’s advances as “like an octopus. His hands were everywhere.”

    Quantity over quality?

    1. Octo-erotica

      1. Trump just won the Japanese-American male vote

        1. including doing an online debate on parenting with Michael Lohan.

          Jesus.

      2. Do not summon Sugarfree!

    2. An octopus has zero hands.

      1. Trump has small hands, which is similar.

        It does seem an odd comparison to make. Has she had experienced being groped by an octopus?

  12. including now 74-year-old Jessica Leeds, who described Trump’s advances as “like an octopus. His hands were everywhere.”

    KOCHTOPUS!!!1!! Wait…

      1. Trumptopussy?

  13. “More than Trump or Johnson, indifference may be the biggest challenge Clinton faces to win millennials’ support.”

    Ennui is so in this year.

    1. Ennui is the runaway favorite for president.

      1. I dunno. Angst is closing the gap.

        1. Apathy, however, is still on the starting block. It also declined to comment.

          1. I don’t know whether ignorance or apathy is more rampant, and i don’t really care enough to find out.

            1. Did we just win ourselves a Nobel prize?

              1. The Nobel Prize for Lethargy?

                1. The Nobel Prize for Lethargy?

                  It looks like this: ?\_(?)_/?

    2. “On oui” is the French version of affirmative consent.

      1. Sort of listless consent, at best.

        1. Meh. I’d reply to this, but why bother.

          1. *Holds cigarette between thumb and index finger*

            Eez just a little death.

            1. *narrows gaze at the lot o’ ye*

  14. A new Pew Research Center survey finds 57 percent of Americans favor marijuana legalization,

    And to prove it, we have Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as our leading presidential candidates!

    1. Favor leagalization – but do not regard it as the most pressing issue.

      1. How does that kind of nuance help me make internet comments?

        1. Alas, I do not regard that to be the most pressing issue either.

      2. More pressing issues:

        deregulation
        tax reform
        welfarism
        Russia
        China
        digital security
        border security
        when it’s appropriate to grab her by the pussy

        1. when it’s appropriate to grab her by the pussy

          If she has passed out at the party, you can carry her home like a six-pack?

    2. In other news, I’m now against marijuana legalization.

      1. Do you look down your nose at those who favor it?

        1. Of course! If I can’t virtue signal, what’s the point?

      2. Yeah, it went mainstream and sold out.

  15. Guess which presidential nominee said it? “I happen to be a clean hands freak. I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as much as possible.”

    You Human Trafficked the link.

  16. Well deserved by Bobby Z.

  17. Let’s not forget the NYT published a bogus hit piece right before the 2008 election about John McCain supposedly having an affair with a lobbyist, that they later had to settle a lawsuit over.

    1. But Obama won the election, so it was of course worth it.

    2. Which is probably why Trump’s making such a big deal about threatening a defamation lawsuit; added bonus in that it pushes his narrative that the media is so completely in the tank for Hillary that anything they publish can’t be trusted.

      1. I think that’s more than just a narrative.

  18. The 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature goes to Bob Dylan for what the Nobel Committee describes

    I want to start getting online-mad more often about perfectly fine things. Is this a good place to start?

    1. Buddy, you’re in just the right place.

  19. Is Dylan getting the Nobel Prize any worse than Obama’s finely virtue signaled one?

    Whatever

    1. Don’t think twice, it’s alright

      1. Sure. You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

    2. Dylan’s is far more justifiable.

      1. Can’t argue that

      2. Agreed.

        Dylan has a track record.

        1. I suppose he has released singles, but that’s inexcusable behaviour, records should have more than one track on them.

          1. Not following. He’s had some pretty solid albums. Blonde on Blonde, Highway 61 Revisited…

            1. It was a bad pun.

              A track record.

              One-track record.

              Single.

              Why did you make me explain the joke Rufus? I’m not that funny to begin with and explained jokes aren’t funny.

              1. Sometimes. I’m just not that smart.

                Actually. All the time.

  20. …have come forward this week accusing Donald Trump of non-consensual kissing, touching, and groping them.

    Trump is so persona non grata, who’s going to admit they wanted that snog?

    1. Odd how there were no contemporaneous accusations, but they are now just coincidentally put forth right before the election and right after the video release. Not at all suspicious.

    2. Hillary and all her minions have had their hands in my pants for decades.

  21. Contrary to the stereotype, Florida is no longer a wheezy haven of shuffleboard, blue rinse and early-bird specials (with a bit of Latin spice). Millennials now outnumber residents over age 65

    Ah. THAT explains the accident-plagued roadways there.

    1. More people leave Florida to retire than move there to retire. That’s been the case for over twenty years now.

      Part of the reason for that, I believe, is that Florida is no longer the home of cheap real estate.

  22. As voters head to the ballot box in November, a new poll finds that the majority of Americans support efforts to legalize marijuana.

    On the issue of whether contentious social issues should be decided democratically, socons have already moved the goalpost clear to the other side of the field.

    1. What?

      What, exactly, have those crafty socons done?

  23. ?Boko Haram has “released 21 of more than 200 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram Islamists in 2014,” Reuters reports based on a Thursday statement from the Nigerian government.

    They probably saw Michelle Obama’s Tweets

    1. Her WHAT?!

      *** rereads ***

      Never mind.

  24. Trump campaign just released this letter from his lawyers demanding a full retraction/apology from the New York Times.

    NY Times v. Sullivan was only decided 52 years ago. I mean, if most people know nothing of West Virginia v. Barnett, which was 74 years ago, why should they remember Sullivan?

    1. The letter alleges that the Times showed reckless disregard of the truth, which if true would meet the Sullivan standard.

      1. Plus, I’m pretty sure every NYT article about Trump is published with malice.

        1. Malice isn’t enough – Sullivan calls it *actual* malice – but Trump’s lawyers claim it was actual.

          1. Umm…I would think “malice” is “actual malice,” or else it wouldn’t actually be malice. But I’m not a Supreme Court justice, so what do I know?

            1. It sounds silly, but I’m fairly sure that’s the case.

              Check this out (unless you’re looking for legal advice, in which case ignore the link and consult an attorney in your state).

              1. The defendant publishes a statement about the plaintiff he knows is false; or

                The defendant publishes a statement about the plaintiff with reckless disregard for whether it is false or true.

                Does anyone have standing to sue Paul Krugman as a bad actor for knowingly or recklessly impugning reality?

    2. The NY Times did have to settle a lawsuit for a similar pre-election hit piece implying McCain had an affair with a lobbyist. Of course by the time the suit proceeds the damage is already done.

      1. Should have had that shitheel Reid do it in Congress.

  25. “Guess which presidential nominee said it? “I happen to be a clean hands freak. I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as much as possible.””

    The link is broken, so I’ll just guess that it’s every single physician running for President – Stein, Ron Paul and Rand Paul.

    At least I hope that’s the answer.

      1. How racist of me.

        But it says nominee.

        So…Ron Paul and Jill Stein?

      2. Nice.

      1. Politico discredited itself a ways back. I really can’t take it seriously.

  26. New Museum Invites Visitors to Desecrate Image of Virgin Mary

    Estonia, evangelized in the 12th century and predominantly Lutheran as of the 16th century, is one of the least religious countries in world. Some two thirds of the population declares no religious affiliation whatsoever.

    ROADZ TO HELL!

    1. “The Museum was inaugurated on the 29th September 2016 by the President of Estonia and the exhibit itself forms part of area that covers the history of the Reformation in Estonia.”

      Fascinating, though it seems the Lutheran Archbishop protested the exhibit.

      One of the critics said it was designed to offend Russians.

      1. If only the exhibits had a toilet bowl with “socialism” and “communism” printed on it, then maybe the Left would have protested.

    2. New Museum Invites Visitors to Desecrate Image of Virgin Mary

      We can expect a violent response from radicalized Christians very soon.

      1. Where is the exhibit which lets visitors simulate burning the Koran?

        1. Doing that would take some actual balls. By desecrating Christianity, they can pretend to be courageous while assuming no actual risk.

      2. The process of laying the groundwork for not giving a shit when Russia takes back Estonia has officially begun.

  27. The 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature goes to Bob Dylan

    And the MC5 still ain’t in the R&R Hall of Fame

    1. It’s time to… kick out the jams, motherfuckers!

      1. The girls can’t stand it when you do it right.

        1. Is this Trump’s current excuse?

    2. In related news, Nobel prizes are now available at cinnabon franchises everywhere

    3. MC5…I remember picking that album up at a place called ‘Cheap Thrills’ waaaayy back.

    4. Yeah, neither is Dick Dale. Just shows how much the curators know about that new fangled rock and roll music all the kids seem to be listening to nowadays.

  28. I was raped by trump. In florida. The bids start at “new Porsche 991R”. Do I hear a carbon fiber package?

    1. Bugatti Veyron.

      1. Sorry, too Guido. Also, that would require me claiming trump gang raped me as part of a satanic ritual. Too tawdry. I’m a classy girl and I was fingerbanged

        1. Hey, some of my cousins are guidos…wait, ok, you made your point.

        2. The kids are saying fingerblasted these days… I hear.

  29. WaPo endorses Hillary for President

    Man, I did not see that one coming!

    1. Blindsided!

    2. I remember some people claiming that when Bezos bought it, the paper would move in a more libertarian direction.

      What a joke that turned out to be. That shitrag is arguably more raging leftard now than it was before he got there.

    3. Pretty sure Wikileaks beat them to the announcement.

    4. The comments. And out came the Hillarybots. Ugly.

  30. Things JB’s prog friends say, the cult of personality edition:

    Watching the MTV thing on Opioid addiction (Prescription for Change) and Obama is on it talking to Macklemore, and that’s the kind of thing that hits me with how lucky I am to have been here in the US when Clinton and Obama were running the show, both incredibly charismatic, and with the amazing appearance of actually caring, and knowing what works in so far as going on mainstream TV and doing things like this.

    No way Trump would do it, Hilary – unlikely, but I feel like she’d send Chelsea instead, but Trump I don’t think would give a shit

    1. I just don’t even… wait, is your friend 15?

      1. Nope! Actual, honest to goodness, adult!

    2. the amazing appearance of actually caring, and knowing what works in so far as going on mainstream TV and doing things like this

      Because that’s what really matters

      1. Going on mainstream TV? Is MTV the hot new hipster-douche ironical now or something? I didn’t know MTV was even still a thing.

        1. Last I heard, MTV was a bastion of racists and sexists spewing disparagement at whites and men. I don’t think anyone who works there even knows they used to show music videos.

          1. That bigot Laci Green has a show there, so… there you go.

      2. Yes, it’s the appearance of caring that counts. Not any actual results.

        1. ^ That emphasis exactly

    3. Macklemore has a song called “Drug Dealer,” which is about the opioid epidemic. Listen to it or read the lyrics if you are a fan of good, topical hip-hop.

    4. That flavor-of-the-week jackass is still around? Why?

      Quiz time: am i talking about Macklemore or Barry O.?

    5. No way Trump would do it, Hilary – unlikely, but I feel like she’d send Chelsea instead, but Trump I don’t think would give a shit

      I’m glad he wouldn’t give a shit. The last thing we need is another president with a few dozen hobby horses that’ll give him a reason to govern me to death.

    6. Personally, I’d prefer if Obama worried less about “the amazing appearance of actually caring” and focused more on “not locking people in a cage and ruining their lives and their families’ lives for using opioids.”

    7. Holy shit.

      Thus proving how easy it is to dupe a mass of people so willing to be deceived.

      It’s utterly depressing.

      1. Pretending to give a shit about opiates is the opiate of the masses.

      2. Remember when “questioning authority” and “fighting the man” were celebrated hallmarks of being young or being a rock musician? It’s truly amazing how things have changed.

        1. That attitude was only cultivated for as long as the progressives were out of power. When the right people wield authority, it is backwards and bigoted to question or resist them.

  31. bevy of women, including People magazine reporter Natasha Stoynoff, have come forward this week accusing Donald Trump of non-consensual kissing, touching, and groping them.

    Yeah, but think of all the women Trump hasn’t groped! WHYCOME REASON NOT TALK ABOUT THAT!!!1!!!!1!!!!

    1. Totally credible, too, that they only decided to accuse right before the election and right after the video release while having not made a peep at the time it supposedly happened.

      1. “People Magazine”?

        That’s like buzzfeed, but less credible, right?

  32. “now 74-year-old Jessica Leeds, who described Trump’s advances as “like an octopus. His hands were everywhere.””

    I figured if we had nothing to say to each other he would get bored; go away. But instead he uses it as an excuse to put his testicles all over me.”

    “You know, like octopus? Testicles?”

    1. I want my two dollars!

      1. I just realized this mountain is made entirely of SNOW! Do you have any idea what the street value of this is?

    2. Gee, I’m real sorry your mom blew up, Ricky.

  33. Electronic spoons which make food taste sweeter

    The invention ? dubbed Taste Buddy ? emits a low-level electrical current to stimulate taste buds so the mouth perceives sweet or salty flavours, even when they are not really present.

    Licking a 9V battery is cheaper and more effective.

  34. A bevy of women, including People magazine reporter Natasha Stoynoff, have come forward this week accusing Donald Trump of non-consensual kissing, touching, and groping them.

    Which are very credible accusations since they came out about this before that leaked video was released. Oh wait.

    1. Eh, its a little like Bill Cosby. His lawyers can suppress any one accuser until someone (in this case Trump himself) gives them space to make the accusation. And then once the press has it, the accusers have a way of fighting the lawyers.

      1. Exactly this. They have him on tape saying he does stuff like this. He can’t really accuse them of defamation.

        Trump is such a colossal fuckup. I’m serious.

        1. Crap. Accidentally hit submit while sneezing.

          To continue:

          He had to have said shit like this numerous times. If I were in his shoes, I wouldn’t have even considered running, knowing that there was a high likelihood of something like this being in the news.

          I suspect he thought nobody would kick up a fuss, since they hadn’t before. What he didn’t realize is that before nobody cared to destroy him in the public eye. The moment he threw his hat in the ring, he made enemies. He went from getting away with shit because nobody cared to having a bullseye centered on his spine right behind the heart.

          That he didn’t even realize this is headsmackingly stupid.

          1. Or perhaps he looked at what Bill got away with and said, “Why not?”

            1. I’m not sure Bill would have survived ’92 if the current media/social media environment existed then.

              1. He’s a Democrat. He’d be fine today too.

                1. He’s a Democrat. He’d be fine today too

                  Eh, maybe. Weiner was a rising star in the Democrat party before he started dick-picing random bimbos and porn stars. Bill, being a southerner, has a lot more charisma and natural charm than a neurotic loudmouth like Weiner, so he’d probably still be able to get away with a lot more, but I’d say the chances are about 50/50 instead of 100% if it happened today instead of in 92.

                  1. Was John Edwards’ illegitimate baby the only thing that sunk him in the primary? I can’t remember. And he knew that was a possibility going in.

                    1. Was John Edwards’ illegitimate baby the only thing that sunk him in the primary? I can’t remember. And he knew that was a possibility going in.

                      That and the fact that he cheated on his wife while she was on her deathbed and then used campaign contributions to pay off his mistress. A crime for which he was charged and found not guilty, despite being forced to pay back the money that he was supposedly not guilty of stealing.

                  2. Eh, maybe. Weiner was a rising star in the Democrat party before he started dick-picing random bimbos and porn stars.

                    And yet Weinergate was not widely touted as being emblematic of the Democratic Party unlike Sen. Larry Craig trolling men’s restrooms which was widely considered to be the epitome of Republican hypocrisy.

                  3. “Weiner was a rising..”

                    I swear, I’m 45 years old & couldn’t help giggling at this.

                    My poor wife.

          2. Trump was a world-class media manipulator, a 7th level wizard of some sort, a master persuader if you will, remember? Trump’s such a fat-headed egotist that he seriously believed all the publicity he’s gotten over the years was “earned” media and that he was the one calling the shots in the Trump/Media relationship. No, Donald, the media are two-dollar whores that’ll do anything for the money – but they always get their two dollars, don’t they. They were using you as much as you were using them; you got the publicity you wanted, they got the eyeballs and the ad revenue they wanted. Welcome to the real world, where you find out the two-dollar whore has a side job as a high-stakes, high-priced assassin and you’re waaay out of your league, little man.

          3. I suspect he thought nobody would kick up a fuss, since they hadn’t before. What he didn’t realize is that before nobody cared to destroy him in the public eye.

            The raging hypocrisy of these people is what irritates me more than Trump’s apparent satyr-like appetites. Take the Entertainment Tonight video from 1992 where he greeted a 10-year-old girl and joked that he’d be marrying her in 10 years. This wasn’t a hot-mike moment; it was an aired segment on national TV, and NO ONE apparently gave a shit, even though now I’ve got self-righteous windbags on my FB feed talking shit about how they’d be in jail if someone talked to their wife or daughter like that. If this guy has been a multi-decade a sexual predator, why was Hollywood and the media enabling it by giving him film and TV parts, a reality TV show, and fawning publicity for all these years? Why were they okay with it then, but not now? That question is rhetorical because we all know they’re perfectly fine with pushing hyper-sexualization and gross personal behavior as long as it’s pissing off conservatives. “Ugh, it’s just sex, don’t be such a prude!”

            At this point, I don’t even care if the assault allegations are true or not, simply because the WHOLE reason Trump was allowed to get to this point is because his buddies in the media elite looked the other way when it happened. And now I’M the one who’s supposed to be outraged by these allegations? Where the fuck were these people 10-20 years ago?

      2. Bill is a Democrat, they are still excusing his raping and Hillary’s enabling.

      3. Except Cosby had contemporaneous accusers, while there were no accusations against Trump until the video release and right before the election. If there had been accusations put forth around the time any of these allegedly occurred, they would have more credibility. And the NY Times had to settle a lawsuit for a similar pre-election hit piece implying McCain had an affair with a lobbyist, so their credibility is questionable, to say the least.

    2. You know who else was accused of a pattern of sexual harrassment, denied he had ever once done such a thing, and then had his denial publicly blown up when somebody produced hard evidence of the sexual misconduct? (Hint: All the major news media clutching their pearls and collapsing on their fainting couches over Trump’s behavior fiercely defended the guy at the time and are right now actively shilling for his wife, who also defended him by attacking his victims.)

      1. Of course all of this is just a deliberately planned distraction to avoid covering the substance of the Wikileaks email revelations.

      2. You know who else was accused of a pattern of sexual harrassment, denied he had ever once done such a thing, and then had his denial publicly blown up when somebody produced hard evidence of the sexual misconduct?

        I know it’s definitely a double standard, but Clinton’s was worse since his accusations of misconduct where out, then the evidence came out. For Trump, the tape was released that showed him talking about how many women turn into sluts around celebrities (which no one can really say is false) AND THEN accusations come out.

  35. Dear Reasonoids,

    Shameless self-promotion follows:

    I’m a writer and co-author of the book:
    Each One, Teach One: Preserving and protecting the Second Amendment in the 21st century and beyond
    , written with Greg Camp of Guns.com

    Given the affinity that (l)ibertarians have for gun rights, I wanted to share our work here. The outcome of this election is going to be really bad for the Second Amendment. In the long-term, however, the threat is from ignorance of firearms, and that’s what this book is about.

    If you read my book (thanks!), I would appreciate it if you can post a review or simply email me feedback. My email address is in the book.

    Sincerely,

    1. I forgot to add that the book is available in Kindle and Paperback. The Kindle edition lets you preview the 1st chapter and half of the 2nd chapter.

    Dayton says Affordable Care Act has become unaffordable

    Speaking to reporters, Dayton said insurance companies have driven up costs in order to participate in the state’s MNsure program ? and gridlock in Washington, D.C., has made it difficult to pass reforms that could bring those costs back in line.

    “The reality is the Affordable Care Act is no longer affordable to increasing numbers of people,” he said.

    This is great coming from the guy who presided over a truly fucked up roll out of MN Care.

    1. Let me guess, he wants to call a special session to deal with it

    2. But he haz a shiny new hoofball stadium!!!

  37. 1,200 more leaked emails yesterday and not one mention of the corruption in our government and political system here at Reason.q

    Just some ancient unsubstantiated Jackies getting raped by Trump.

    1. The distraction tactics are working to perfection.

      1. This election is probably the greatest example of the media being Democratic Party sycophants. *Every single time* a story comes out about Hilary’s latest scandal, fiasco, malfeasance, criminal act, the media hones in on some random bullshit that her opponent supposedly did. The DNC email leak is probably the best example, where election fraud was uncovered but the media utterly ignored the contents of the emails and instead focused on some unsubstantiated claims that the Kremlin released the emails because Trump is in bed with the Russians.

    2. We’re seriously supposed to believe though that every one of them saying that they’re either voting for Gary Johnson or not voting at all is being completely honest. No, really. Because these darlings would never, ever lie to us. Ever.

  38. The worst thing about the FL MMJ constitutional amendment passing is that I’m going to have to give most of the credit to John Morgan of the ambulance chasing law-firm Morgan & Morgan. He has spent a lot of his own time and money and influence over the last 5 years getting the medical pot over the finish line. I’ve stopped hating him and started thinking of him as an actual human being.

    1. Yeah, he’s been instrumental. He was the money behind the failed measure (thanks, Sheldon Adelson) in ’14 and he’s back doing it again this time.

  39. I’ve decided to come forward myself.

    In 1997, I was groped by Hillary Clinton on three separate occasions.

    The reason I haven’t mentioned it before is because I was overcome by feelings of guilt and shame.

    I only mention it now in the hope that other men who were groped by Hillary Clinton will feel empowered to step forward to reclaim their dignity and their lives.

    I suspect I’m not the only victim.

    1. You’re obviously lying, because nobody has ever survived being groped by Hillary.

      Those claws have monomolecular edges, man.

      1. This is a very serious matter. Her hands were everywhere.

        Actually, I’m looking for someone to help me code a website, “gropedbyhillary.org”.

        The website will host links to professional counseling, legal resources, and, most importantly, media contacts–so that all the victims of Hillary’s groping can come forward, band together, and demand the recognition, accountability, and publicity we deserve.

        God only knows how many men might come forward and say they were groped by Hillary Clinton. There could be thousands of victims.

        1. Why?

          Drop 100 bucks at Nearly Free Speech hosting, set up a wordpress site and you are off to the races.

          No coder needed.

      2. Those claws have monomolecular edges, man.

        Hillary is Sally Shears?

    2. “In other news Ken Shultz committed suicide by sniper rifle to the back of the head yesterday…”

    3. Where did she grope you? I would never wash those spots.

      Instead, I would cut them out with a carving knife.

    4. Her venomous DEMONIC LIZARD TONGUE alone would have killed you.

      1. This isn’t funny.

        There could be dozens of victims of Hillary’s groping right here in this very thread.

    5. I too was viciously finger banged by Hilary. It was a sultry Georgia night, the sounds of passing traffic and croaking bullfrogs seemed to hang in the air and only slowly fade away. Her skin was sticky to the touch, she smelled like the cafeteria in an old folks home, it repulsed me, the clinking of the chains was a constant reminder that there was nowhere to go, I could never get out of her reach, she was going to have her way with me. But I won’t bore you with details.

      1. Somebody get the New York Times on the phone.

        1. Unless Hillary suddenly becomes a Republican, they don’t fucking care.

    6. Sorry, completely not credible, everyone knows Hillary is a lesbian.

      Now if you were a woman I might have believed you.

      1. Maybe he identified as a woman when the assault took place.

    7. I FEEL like I was groped by Clinton every time I read a SugarFree post… does that count??

  40. How My Husband’s Subconscious Racism Nearly Destroyed Our Marriage

    We live in Atlanta, where multi-racial, multi-ethnic options are everywhere, yet when we socialized with his friends I was required to visit all-white neighborhoods, businesses, and events. Many of his friends lived in “white flight” zones, suburban areas where white people moved to avoid the “downfall” of urban areas. I was constantly required to go to the one Atlanta county still referred to as a “sundown town” ? as in a town Black people shouldn’t be in after dark. And while he and his friends were pretty clueless about these things, I was very aware.

    It was in one of these predominantly white spaces, a restaurant with a mostly-white clientele, that I first ran headlong into Kevin’s unrealized racism. I’d just learned that he and all his friends carried 4-inch pocket knives (or “box openers,” as they liked to call them), and I was kinda freaked out by it. My weapons tend to be off-label weapons, like my keys, a pen, or my purse. I only had one friend who carried a gun, and nobody carried knives. Now, I was sitting surrounded by armed white men.

    1. That man really should run as far as he can away from this headcase.

      1. If I had to guess, I’d say it was her insanity that is destroying their marriage, possibly aided by his willingness to surrender his testicles.

    2. “We met in the geekiest way possible: He saw a picture of me in a cosplay outfit, wanted to know more, found my blog, and then found my profile on a dating site and asked to meet at DragonCon. Everything about that impressed me. I loved the idea of someone being willing to do a little legwork to find me, especially since exercising my curiosity and putting in some effort to satisfy it is how I engage with the world. His approach spoke to me.”

      It’s hear fault for marrying a stalker. /sarc

      1. “I loved being objectified! It was such an ego boost!”

        Also, who doesn’t carry a pocket knife?

        1. Apparently, her husband after she “confronted” him.

        2. A folding knife with a 4″ blade is a tool that may be used as an improvised weapon, like a ballpoint pen. Those men were no more armed than she was.

        3. I carry a gun. I think the term for people like me is “Grand Wizard”.

      2. “Being exposed to so many white people, including some who were now my family, helped me recognize racist buzzwords like “conservative,” “social conservative,” “Republican,” “traditionalist,” and “older generation.” These code words make racism more palatable and less offensive to those that engage in it. It also makes it easier to lie to ourselves about it.”

        Amazing.

        1. Serves the guy right for marrying a fucking lunatic.

    3. Pocketknives?!?!? In Georgia?!?!?

      Fetch me my fainting chaise!

    4. I’m not understanding the link between having a pocketknife and being racist….

      1. Sounds like you need to have an SJW yell at you until you understand.

      2. Rednecks love pocket knives, and rednecks are racist. Therefore pocket knives are racist. QED!

        1. You know who else loves my pocketknife? Every coworker, my wife, and anyone else around me who has ever had to open something sealed and not had a pair of scissors or a knife of their own handy.

      3. I read the article.

        She thinks her husband is racist because he commented that “at least we don’t have to worry about getting shot” when she bitched to him about him and his friends being armed in a restaurant.

        She thought that if she carried a real weapon (instead of the ersatz ones she keeps in her purse) that she would be killed, and she was upset that he didn’t feel as intimidated about carrying a weapon as she did.

        The rest is basically a detail free set of claims that:
        1) She used to be intimidated and allow people to be racist towards her
        2) She forced her future husband to admit he was racist as a price to staying with her
        3) She no longer puts up with the evil racism inherent to white culture and is proud of her heritage.

        I think it’s kind of fascinating that she never once expresses the idea that the men sitting at that table cared about her, felt her no ill will, and would have used those weapons to defend her life. I wonder if she would have felt the same way if she were to be in a restaurant with her friends who happened to be black and discovered they were carrying.

        1. It’s all preconceived notions and projection.

      4. That’s because you’re steeped in unconscious bias, shitlord.

    5. We live in Atlanta, where multi-racial, multi-ethnic options are everywhere, yet when we socialized with his friends I was required to visit all-white neighborhoods, businesses, and events.

      She was REQUIRED to visit with white people. Oh that’s terrible. Yeah it’s definitely her husband that was the racist.

      1. Seriously, change “white people” to “black people” in that article to see just how disgustingly racist it really is.

        1. I don’t need to swap words around because unlike most people, my brain is fully capable of discerning logical inconsistency.

          1. Sure, but it is an informative exercise to drive home the point for other people. Which is why the SJWs came up with the “black people can’t be racist” bullshit to excuse this blatant racism.

            1. Yeah I know, I make that kind of point to people myself. But it’s sad that it even needs to be done to get the point across. That tells you how fucked up everyone’s worldview really is. Radical egalitarianism is the norm, and it’s applied inconsistently to boot.

    6. Kevin should have known that having a knife is racist.

      Wait what??

  41. No link to the death of Boomyball? ENB should be ashamed. I’m sure she isn’t.

  42. Today’s NYT has editorials titled “”America’s Toxic Masculinity” and “The Obsession with Panda Sex”

    No mention of cruise missile attacks, or why we’re now in a shooting-war in Yemen, rather than just “helping others bomb them”

    1. Gilmore, there’s no need to worry about frivolous things like our constant wars in the Middle East, Russia’s threats to the U.S., or that silly business in India and Pakistan. After all, Trump talked about pussy-grabbing. That’s the most important thing.

    2. Is there such thing as “toxic femininity”?

      1. Sure was, which is why feminist extinguished femininity.

        1. And there’s shocking Panda-ity.

      2. “toxic femininity”

        All things feminine are good and virtuous, it’s only manly things that are icky, gross, and evil. All goodthinkful people know this.

  43. Is there anything like FASCR for Android?

    1. You could always apply the blackberry delete tool.

      1. I mean a plugin for comments

  44. Dammit. Since everyone is coming out with their story I suppose I will too.

    At first, I didn’t want to come forward because, well, I’m a lowly Canadian. I mean, who would or could possibly care I was raped by Hillary? It happened in 1987. I was but a young, not so promising teenager with a care-free, bureaucrats love us for our own good attitude. I gave out leaflets about how important it was to vote for anything benevolent bestowed upon us by government. One day, Hillary was walking Canada (Canada has one street) whistling as if she owned the street. No one paid much attention to her but her twinkle in her eye and that wonky cankle strut was so inspiring it overwhelm me. Like getting punched in the stomach by LOVE. She was a little surprised someone looked at her and asked, ‘What’s your name, fella?’ Gawking and drooling I responded, ‘R-rufus’. ‘Hello, Rufus. My those are nice pants you got on.’ ‘T-thanks.’ ‘You like pants, right? You know what’s better than putting pants on in the morning, Rufus?’ ‘No’ I replied. ‘Taking them off.’

    She then proceeded to hand me a key: Room 69…I went to the Motel Canada (Canada has one motel). I knocked on the door and an arm reached out and violently pulled me in. It was within the confines of those 6 walls Hillary proceeded to rape me with first her eyes….and then her fingers….

  45. I got raped by Hillary and all I got was a Chevy.

  46. With all of these admissions that you guys were raped by Hillary, I’m finally confident enough to share my own shame. It was 2008, I was in the student union at my college. Hillary was campaigning at the school. There I was, sitting on a couch reading a book. And Hillary walks in, along with Chelsea. They stride towards me, coming ever closer. Close enough that I could feel their gaze upon me. I felt so objectified. They were within feet of me, talking to some sycophantic supporter and…nothing. They didn’t rape me at all. I felt then, as now, like a failure. Not even good enough to be groped.

    1. Not like the usual Hillary story, which ends, “and when I checked my pockets my wallet was *gone!*”

    2. I’m sure they wanted to rape you, but just didn’t have time. Or maybe Hilary had just finished herself off on the last chap and couldn’t get her clitpenis up again. THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT.

      1. Thank you for your support.

  47. Guess which presidential nominee said it? “I happen to be a clean hands freak. I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as much as possible.”

    Trump. Because he knows where those hands have been.

  48. A bevy of women, including People magazine reporter Natasha Stoynoff, have come forward this week accusing Donald Trump of non-consensual kissing, touching, and groping them. Trump’s campaign is demanding an apology and a retraction from The New York Times for its story about two of the women, including now 74-year-old Jessica Leeds, who described Trump’s advances as “like an octopus. His hands were everywhere.”

    At least his hands were clean…

    1. Now physically assaulting a college-aged man? Ol’ Bobby agrees that is what locker rooms are for.

    2. Is that an Onion-like site except for sports related stories? It has to be. No way that’s real.

        1. Oh good. Reality is starting to look more and more like satire.

        2. Yep. After reading a couple other stories, it’s very obvious.

      1. With Bobby Knight, anything is possible. But yes, it is similar to The Onion.

        1. With Bobby Knight, anything is possible.

          That’s what had me wondering. It seemed too ridiculous to be real, but it’s getting harder and harder to tell parody from the real world these days.

    3. Oh for fucks sake, “locker-room talk” is just shorthand for describing how a lot of men will talk trash about women and sex when there are no women around. It’s not meant to be taken literally.

      1. The media becomes hyper-literal with anything Trump says.

    4. Jesus Christ everyone’s taking the “locker room talk” phrase literally. It’s meant to convey the idea that men say crude things when women aren’t around. I know for a fact, no matter what someone with more literal locker room experience tells me, that men do talk about crude shit when in front of appropriate audiences.

      1. What do they call it when women say crude things when men aren’t around…oh wait, they don’t care if men are around.

        1. It should be called “Elizabeth Nolan Browning”.

        2. Like one of those feminist blogs bitching about The Fappening or objectification of women et cetera, that puts out an article talking about how awesome it is that some leaked photos show Justin Bieber’s big dick. Fucking hypocrites. It’s just such a non-issue it’s ridiculous. And if Hilary wins, it’s because of this distraction.

          1. I dearly hope this election rings the death knell for insincere sanctimony. The response to bitching about crude language should be even cruder invectives.

            1. If anything, insincere sanctimony has reached new heights.

          2. or that video someone posted yesterday where the female reporters are screaming at another female reporter walking down the aisle of Obama’s campaign plain because he’s showing off his dick through his pants, and that bitch was in the way!

        3. Yeah, when a man grabs a women he doesn’t know and starts to rub her breasts on a plane and stick his hand down her pants that’s just talk.

          1. Ask any of the women who Bill Clinton did that to!

  49. The best part of this article…

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10…..-news&_r=0

    Is this…

    In a phone interview on Tuesday night, a highly agitated Mr. Trump denied every one of the women’s claims.

    “None of this ever took place,” said Mr. Trump, who began shouting at the Times reporter who was questioning him. He said that The Times was making up the allegations to hurt him and that he would sue the news organization if it reported them.

    “You are a disgusting human being,” he told the reporter as she questioned him about the women’s claims.

  50. Hmmmm. Looks like Rasmussen has Trump taking the lead amongst likely voters.

    I can’t recall ? was Rasmussen one of the polling firms that opined that Romney was going to win back in ’12?

  51. While coming to education, the technology has brought many advantages to students and as well as teachers. showbox For example, students can do their homework or assignment with ease and can complete it faster by using the Internet.
