  1. Activists are reading into an unplanned outage at the Statue of Liberty last night.

    Women making something all about them?

    1. Outage. Outrage. What’s the difference?

    2. “Unplanned” or was it?

      1. A woman probably knocked the cord out of the wall with the vacuum cleaner.

    3. Hello.

      “Aides to Barack Obama say the former president is “furious” about President Trump’s allegations of wiretapping.”

      And people are supposed to care because…?

      1. …he has an army of trained seals at his beck and call? One word from The One and the Left is gonna dial it up to 12.

      2. Some people get angry when they’re scared. Just sayin’

      3. Who is not interested in drama amongst our betters?

      4. Why does he still have aides? He’s a former President.

      5. “Gee, Obumbles, your side makes allegations against Trump that could only be based on taps on his phone and in his residence, and you are OUTRAGED that he alleges that you wiretapped him? Well, you ARE a blithering idiot.”

    4. Lady Liberty is a woman after all.

      1. Would

        1. I dunno man, it would sort of incestuous, wouldn’t it?

          1. No dude, she’s French.

      2. I read a story somewhere that speculated that the model for the SoL was actually the artist’s brother.

      3. She has no vagina. Seriously, the Statue of Liberty has no vagina. It’s just a hollow shell of copper. So it’s stupid to think of the statue as a real woman.

        1. not all women have vaginas

          Dude you need to get woke.

    5. Will there be a comic of Lady Liberty weeping behind an unlit Lady Liberty?

  2. China’s foreign minister says the U.S. and North Korea are on course for a “head-on collision” over a missile defense system deployment in South Korea.

    Someone’s bucking for more food aid.

    1. White rice lies.

      1. The fact that white lies are the good kind of lies is just another example of white privilege.

  3. Aides to Barack Obama say the former president is “furious” about President Trump’s allegations of wiretapping.

    No drama indeed.

  4. Aides to Barack Obama say the former president is “furious” about President Trump’s allegations of wiretapping.

    I am sure he is. I am quite certain it never occurred to his dumb ass that any of this would ever come back on him.

    1. Any of what?

    2. Yep. How did trump russia narrative of colludig come about from intel sources if obama admin didnt have him spied on?

      Nyt on 1 19 specifically mentioned wire tapping

      1. Herself says it was computer experts that discovered that Trump and Puttin were sitting in a tree, K I SS ING all the way back in October

      2. Does no one remember Paul Manafort?

  5. Aides to Barack Obama say the former president is “furious” about President Trump’s allegations of wiretapping.

    I’d love to see that. I wonder what he’s like when he’s really pissed.

    1. He breaks popsicle sticks.

      1. I suspect he slightly bends popsicle sticks then hands them to Michelle to bite through.

      2. He spits out his nicorette gum, turns to Boehner and asks to bum a Camel.

        1. I bet he vapes now. He angrily blow vape smoke up at a 45 degree angle.

    2. “Uh uh uh uh uh uh UHHHH!”

  6. Everywhere I went today, all the women were working, doing the same shit they do pretty much every other day.

    Unlike the pink pussy hat thingy a few weeks ago which actually did draw a lot of people, this stupid idea today looked like a complete and total flop.

    1. If any women didn’t show up to work today for this, I don’t know them. Talk about fake news.

      1. “FAKE NEWS” I KNEW IT THIS PROVES YOU’RE JUST A TEAM RED STOOGE JOHN

        Yeah I didn’t see any ladies absent from work either.

        1. I know you are trying to be sarcastic, but would anyone here really disagree that John is a team red stooge? Probably John himself would agree with that statement.

          1. I think stooge is a bit excessive. Leans more Team Red sure.

          2. No I wouldn’t. I would however agree you are a moron. So there is that.

            1. John’s burns are like a solar-powered electric chair.

              1. It is not really burn when its the truth. The truth is too boring to be a burn.

          3. John is a team red stooge?

            Obviously. That science was settled long ago.

      2. As a just in case, I do generally enjoy your commentary John.

        1. Thanks and I knew you were being sarcastic.

    2. It’s not like the event lacked publicity.

    3. PG County, MD closed schools today for this shit. They are already the shittiest school system in MD (ok Balt. City takes that title but they’re damn close). But these same bitches will tell you how school choice is bad for the children.

  7. First Lady Melania Trump hosted a luncheon for International Women’s Day.

    She better not have cooked.

    1. Melania *always* cooks, emirite?

      1. Her cookwares are silicone-based.

  8. Aides to Barack Obama say the former president is “furious” about President Trump’s allegations of wiretapping.

    Of course, he’s also “clean” and “articulate”.

  9. http://nypost.com/2017/03/08/i…..g-sources/

    ISIS leader abandons his forces in Mosul and is now hiding out in the desert trying to stay alive. Funny how none of these assholes are interested in dying for the jihad. You would think at some point the retards who sign up to die for the jihad would notice that.

    1. I also keep hoping that the 18-year-olds in the U.S. who sign up and risk their lives “for the country” would notice the same thing about the wrinkly warmongers in Congress.

      1. They join for their own reasons. And they are not joining to blow themselves up. They are joining to go to war some of them. And some people want to go to war, even if the only ones available are the shitty little ones we are fighting.

        1. some people want to go to war

          Sociopaths?

          1. Young men who like adrenaline.

  10. Icelandic lawyers order new Porsches:
    “In world first, Iceland to require firms to prove equal pay”
    [?]
    “Iceland will be the first country in the world to make employers prove they offer equal pay regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexuality or nationality, the Nordic nation’s government said Wednesday”
    http://www.sfgate.com/news/wor…..985626.php

    Whatever it is Iceland makes and sells, its competitors can now rest easy

    1. Iceland will be the first country in the world to make employers prove they offer equal pay regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexuality or nationality…

      If you mandate equal pay, I would assume it was regardless of everything. It wouldn’t matter if you were a male lazy dolt or a female workaholic genius. You’re paid the same.

      1. “If you mandate equal pay, I would assume it was regardless of everything. It wouldn’t matter if you were a male lazy dolt or a female workaholic genius. You’re paid the same.”

        The market knows, the gov’t is ignorant.

    2. Didn’t they also just pass a law where companies have to prove their paying women ‘equal pay’?

      Would love to see how that turns out.

      1. Thank you for at least choosing a good one.

        1. You’re welcome.

      2. You make it sound as if Bjork were produced in some secret Iceland factory.

    3. The entire country is 1/6 the population of Brooklyn. Other than SF progs, who cares how they choose to wreck their economy?

    4. Whatever it is Iceland makes and sells, its competitors can now rest easy

      Bjork? Seal blubber? Sex with disturbingly close relations?

    5. That would be fish.

  11. alt alt text = President Stankface

  12. So anything happening in Sweden? Court orders teens who raped boy to be deported:

    In December, Uppsala District Court sentenced four of them to one year and three months in a closed facility for juvenile offenders, and the fifth one, aged 16, to one year and one month.

    However, it refused the prosecutor’s request to also send them back to Afghanistan after they had served their punishment, given their age and the security situation in the country.

    The latter point was then also brought before the appeals court, which threw it out on Wednesday, ordering their deportation and banning them from returning to Sweden for ten years.

    1. The boys all came to Sweden as refugees unaccompanied by any adults,

      Huh.

    2. Children with beards that can’t be deported. As if deportation is enough of a punishment. Sit them on a pike and send the weathered and jellied remains back to Afghanistan.

      1. That’ll show them who’s civilized!

  13. If you have money with State Street Global Advisors, take it out. They confuse business with SJW activities:

    “A $2.5 trillion asset manager just put a statue of a defiant girl in front of the Wall Street bull”
    http://www.sfgate.com/technolo…..983273.php

    1. No shit. Run and run fast.

    2. Yeesh, is that the average San Franciscan in the comments?

    3. Saw that on the news this morning. That shit better be temporary.

    4. Tomorrow, someone should lay down a chalk outline in front of the bull to depict what would have happened in reality.

    5. Wait….doesn’t the bull represent the healthy, prosperous market? And, they want the girl to oppose it?

      I mean, if that’s not the look they’re going for, it’s the one they got.

      How, exactly, are these people successful with money?

  14. “House Speaker Paul Ryan is downplaying growing opposition to the Republican healthcare bill.”

    Time will tell if the GOP voters give the GOP honcho hell for this misfire (albeit a perfectly predictable misfire.) If we are to see real change in D.C., the GOP leaders need to catch hell for this fiasco.

  15. House Speaker Paul Ryan is downplaying growing opposition to the Republican healthcare bill.

    Just let them pass so we can all find out what’s in it, is all he’s saying.

  16. Ed, I know we’re not supposed to read the links, but you’ve got the wrong one for “Kabul”.

    1. Somalia!

      Freudian slip!

  17. FBI Director James Comey told attendees of a cybersecurity conference in Boston that he intended to serve the remaining six and a half years of his term.

    DC might have other plans.

  18. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer says President Trump is “extremely concerned” by Wikileaks’ release of CIA hacking documents.

    Who knows what the deep state had in its Trump archive.

  19. Ullr smiles on the Tahoe Basin.

    Drought’s over, we’re skiing til July!

    1. Unless you also shoot bows, do not invoke the name of Ullr in vain.

    Rats jumping ship at Tesla. If anyone knows the company’s actual chances of survival without subsidies, it would be the employees.

  21. Aides to Barack Obama

    Why does he still have aides?

    1. I wouldn’t touch that ….

    2. He’s writing a book, damn it.

    3. Some youthful indiscretion with an Indonesian prostitute?

  22. House Speaker Paul Ryan is downplaying growing opposition to the Republican healthcare bill.

    But, surprise surprise, Trump is all in for this bill.

    1. We’re not supposed to take his words seriously.

  23. In the latest lock his ass up news:

    New poll from Quinnipiac University released Wednesday shows that a majority of voters think Sessions lied under oath, and that he should resign. Fifty-two percent of American voters think Sessions lied under oath in his congressional hearing, according to the poll of 1,323 voters nationwide conducted March 2 to 6, 2017, compared to 40 percent who think he only made an unclear statement without lying.

    1. Well that settles it. If some polls says he is guilty, then he must be.

      1. I’d like to see a poll about, say, the acceleration of gravity.

      2. + 1 polling the jury

        1. Totally the same thing.

          1. In a case such as this where the issue is narrow and the evidence is publicly available this polling result lends even more credibility to the proposition that probable cause exists to make an arrest.

            1. what evidence ?

              serious question

      3. So, 52% of American voters believe fake news. Not surprising since it’s repeated over and over.

        1. There’s nothing fake about the news. You just don’t like the public’s verdict.

          1. Sessions isn’t going anywhere, and I love that it’s eating your dumb ass up.

    2. Whatever, just get rid of the guy already.

  24. http://ace.mu.nu/archives/368753.php

    Huge rise in personality disorders among Millenials. That is really tragic and entirely predictable. We raised a generation of narcissists who were told how special they were and never allowed or taught how to fail and never installed with any humility. What the hell did people think was going to happen?

    1. In 2014, a survey of 100,000 college students at 53 U.S. campuses by the American College Health Association found that 84% of U.S. students feel unable to cope, while more than half experience overwhelming anxiety.

      We are truly fucked.

      *** brightens up ***

      Of course, they’re mostly just imagining it!

    2. In the 90s, I went to a private CEGEP academy (CEGEP in Quebec is essentially a stupid system and amounts to an extended high school). In reality, it was more a a prep school for those of us who fucked around in the bigger, public CEGEPS.

      Anyway.

      Its students were mainly drawn from the West end of the city where all the wealthy Wesmtount/Hampstead/Outremont kids went to the various prestigious English language private institutions who were fucking up as well. The school had an in-house psychologist because the kids were fucked up. Seems like they were often neglected by their wealthy power parents.

      Just thought this kinda fit in. Or I just wanted to say I went to prep school.

      It shows, right?

    3. John, what do you know about personality dis–

      Oh.

      1. Says the “person” with multiple personalities.

    4. Then again, how much of that is just as a result of the rise in psychologists overdosing everything??

      1. Probably a good amount. I thought of that after I posted it. That is a good point, although is hypochondria about having a personality disorder a disorder in its own right?

  25. Lena Dunham Pens Powerful Pro-Immigration Essay For International Women’s Day

    “Someone I love is undocumented,” the actress began her essay, first posted on LinkedIn. “She is a personal hero of mine: She has cared for the dying, for the just-born, for people who can’t care for themselves. She has a vast and encompassing religious identity rooted only in love. She feeds people literally and figuratively. She is everything you could hope for from an American. But she has not been allowed to become one.”

    At the end of her essay, Dunham encouraged readers to use today to “consider acts of courage great and small by immigrant women, and to commit to fighting with and for them.”

    1. I am not sure a rich person talking about how great her illegal hired help is really helps the cause very much.

    2. At least she didn’t take her clothes off.

    3. Does she still need to consider food allergies of she feeds them figuratively?

    4. Someone you love is undocumented. You talk about them in the press. Now they’ve been picked up by ICE and are in a detention area waiting to be deported. Way to go.

      If someone you love is undocumented, shut the hell up about it.

    5. The only powerful thing Lena has ever done is finger bang her sister.

    6. Crusty always has the best links. Respect.

    7. I try to avoid any documentation concerning women I love as well.

  26. ‘A Day Without a Woman’ Protest: Marches, Closings and Arrests

    Officials in Providence, R.I., said the absence of seven women who work as clerks and of one deputy court administrator had led the municipal court there to be mostly closed. The women handle many of the nuts-and-bolts operations.

    “That the court had to shut down in their absence, I think, is telling,” said Michaela Antunes, press secretary for the Providence City Council.
    Continue reading the main story

    “Some staff was on site today to assist anyone who wasn’t aware of the closure,” Ms. Antunes said. “Seven scheduled trials were heard in court, but no judgments have been processed today. No payments have been entered. Any mail received today will be processed with today’s date tomorrow.”

    1. The goal of this demonstration is to show that woman’s presence should not be taken for granted, and to highlight disparities in rights and pay. Organizers are asking women to take off work and to avoid shopping, unless it’s at small businesses owned by minorities or women. Those who are unable to participate are asked to wear red. At least two related protests will take place in Washington, and a march is being organized in Manhattan. Several other marches, organized by groups including International Women’s Strike USA, will be held around the country.

      1. Businesses run by minority men are OK?

        And big businesses run by women are not? Does being a successful capitalist unmask them as gender traitors?

      2. “The goal of this demonstration is to show that woman’s presence should not be taken for granted, and to highlight disparities in rights and pay.”

        Wait. The link to the Lena Dunham article above informs me that the event is about illegal aliens. I never thought such a tightly package undertaking would lose focus.

      3. The goal of this demonstration is to show that woman’s presence should not be taken for granted, and to highlight disparities in rights and pay.

        Yeah, if it’s one area where women don’t get paid as much as their male counterparts, it’s the court clerks. /s

    2. On Tuesday evening, officials in Prince George’s County, another school district near Washington, said in a statement that they would close for the day.

      Some 1,700 teachers requested the day off.

      1. PG county is a mostly minority and poor to middle-class school district. Nothing says social justice like making some poor black kid miss school.

        Not that the kids cared. i am sure they didn’t. But aren’t Progs always telling us how vital public schools are?

        1. Alexandria City schools were closed as well.

      2. See, what these places need is a decimation law.

        It’s simple enough. If enough people simultaneously walk off the job as to force a shutdown, one-tenth of the people who walked off, randomly selected, are terminated.

        As a bonus, the policy would help educate people about what “decimate” actually means, which the teachers aren’t doing themselves.

    3. No payments have been entered. Any mail received today will be processed with today’s date tomorrow.”

      I am sure the people who are getting fucked because they couldn’t pay a ticket or fine on time understand it is just a necessary sacrifice.

    4. The women handle many of the nuts-and-bolts operations.

      *** snort ***

    5. “That the court had to shut down in their absence, I think, is telling,” said Michaela Antunes, press secretary for the Providence City Council.

      That government workers are as lazy as I thought, or that they aren’t as useless as I thought?

      1. That they have no fear of losing their jobs no matter what they do.

  27. Except for the one who uses the printer in my office, I’ve had a day without women.

    1. Isn’t that your everyday?

      1. A daily aspiration.

    2. Meh. Every woman I know went to work today. Well, the one’s with jobs anyway.

  28. What the hell just happened in Camp Nou?

  29. Old man Gillespie really wrote a ‘jacket-ass’ column today. Just say’n

  30. http://www.tabletmag.com/jewis…..=march2017

    Point to where Mr. Joel touched you on the doll. This is the most histronic music review I have read in a long time. I am not going to claim Billy Joel is some great artists, but Jesus Christ this guy has lost his mind. It’s Billy Joel for Christ’s sake. You get to the end and you find out what this is really about. Joel has committed the cardinal sin of not giving a shit about his being Jewish. Joel has dared define his life beyond blunt identity politics.

    From the very beginning,” Alana Newhouse wrote recently in Tablet , “there was a tacit agreement made between this country and its Jews: You, America, give us liberty and freedom from the extreme degradation and oppression we experienced everywhere else and, in turn, we Jews, will gift you with our ?

    1. Jewishness. With Jewish thinking, and Jewish reflexes. With the ideas and impulses, honed over thousands of years, that could help a country create an unmatched economy, unparalleled creative industries and artistic and literary cultures, social and civic organizations, and more. America, at least so far, has kept its side of the bargain. But we have not.” Instead, we’ve practiced passing, an insidious art few have mastered more than Joel himself. When asked?in Germany, of course?about his Judaism, this is what the lyricist had to say: “I had the snip and I had nothing to say about it. I’m still a little pissed off about that.”

      A more mindful artist would spend more time thinking, about his own identity and about America’s. And more mindful artists are what we need, desperately, right now. Our greatest peril, in art and politics alike, is empty nostalgia that yearns for some imaginary and idyllic past; nostalgia, in George Steiner’s unimprovable phrase, for the absolute. We may not so easily eject the president, but we can start by rejecting the culture that made him possible by finding no fault with his cruelty, his disdain, and his disregard for all but himself. We can start by saying no to the Piano Man.

      1. “…will gift you with our Jewishness. With Jewish thinking, and Jewish reflexes. With the ideas and impulses, honed over thousands of years, that could help a country create an unmatched economy, unparalleled creative industries and artistic and literary cultures, social and civic organizations, and more.”

        I’m pretty sure that would sound pretty racist if you substituted in any other ethnic group.

        And basically this whole article is hating on Billy Joel for not acting like an ethnic stereotype, and not being interested in the culture of his ancestors… but so what??

        1. Billy Joel doesn’t give a fuck what you think in general, so I’m not sure this is getting through to him.

        2. Yes, that is the entire article. Billy Joel is his own person and doesn’t act like this clown thinks a Jew should act. It is pretty fucked up.

      2. So, this whole grand bargain between the Jewish community and the United States (of which I was previously unaware), isn’t going to unravel, and bring the country down with it, because of Billy Fucking Joel, is it?

    2. It can’t possibly still be cool to hate Billy Joel. I also like the Eagles, so people can go fuck themselves.

      1. You are right Tony. There is nothing wrong with music that is well made and approachable. Whenever someone tells me how much they hate the Eagles or Billy Joell, I write them off as a poser phony.

        1. I hate the Eagles, but I love Billy Joel.

          1. No accounting for taste. But, I bet you don’t hate the Eagles as much as this guy hates Billy Joel. If you don’t like the music, that is one thing. But when you extrapolate their making music you don’t like into some larger rant, you have gone off the deep end.

            1. I have nothing against the Eagles, just not my thing. And yes, that guy that wrote that article about Billy Joel is a total douche.

              1. That is what I mean. I am not a big fan of them either. But that just means I don’t care for their music not that there is something wrong with people who do.

          2. I write off their music criticism as being overly prejudicial against their parents’ taste in music.

            I’m not a fan of Frank Sinatra or Tony Bennett and, probably for the same reason, any criticism from me would be similarly prejudiced.

          3. C’mon man, I’ve had a hard night and I hate the fuckin’ Eagles.

      2. For once, we agree, Tony.

    3. Why did I click through and read this
      Whyyyyyyyy

  31. How to ruin Crusty’s commute: CSX Train With Hazardous Materials Derails in Newburgh

    A CSX freight train carrying sulfuric acid and other hazardous materials derailed Tuesday afternoon when it hit a work vehicle that had gotten stuck on the tracks in Newburgh, authorities say.

    An employee of Steelways Inc. told the Times-Herald Record that one of his co-workers was driving a forklift across the tracks when he heard the train’s whistle and saw the crossing gates come down “really fast,” trapping the vehicle on the tracks.

    “I looked in my rearview mirror and saw fire and a train barreling towards my car, and I had a moment of panic thinking, ‘Oh, my God, it’s gonna hit me,'” she said. “It jumped the tracks and came onto the road and it looked like it was heading straight for the cars.”

    “If it had gone a few feet further, it would have hit a building,” she said. “If it had gone the other way, it would have hit the oil tanks — which I can’t even imagine what that would have done.”

  32. “the former president is ‘furious'”.

    I hope he doesnt draw red line.

    1. He just *sees* red line.

  33. Aides to Barack Obama say the former president is “furious” about President Trump’s allegations of wiretapping.

    Why does he need aides?

    1. To keep his royal robe from touching the floor.

      1. +1 Coming to America.

        WIPERS!

    2. You know who else had aides?

      1. Tom Hanks in ‘Philadelphia’?

      2. Freddy Mercury? (this is a sad list)

    3. As soon as I can afford it I’m getting a servant. Before a yacht, before another house. They seem incredibly useful.

      1. Once you get yourself a proper orphan, Tony, you’ll come around.

      2. But yachting needs fossil fuels. You would be polluting atmosphere while destroying flippers home

        1. I came here to get away from your heel nipping.

          1. You would be killing the environment

        2. Not if you get an orphan-powered trireme.

  34. First Lady Melania Trump hosted a luncheon for International Women’s Day.

    Wait, what’d I miss here, wasn’t that Valentines day? Jesus, you’re telling me they get two days a year now?

    1. Like, so do veterans. Don’t be such a bitch.

    2. Don’t forget Mother’s Day.

  35. A day without Women was a lot like a day without immigrants. I didn’t notice anything different.

    1. It’s not even supposed to be a day without women. It’s supposed to be International Women’s Day and it is usually celebrated by men appreciating women by bringing them flowers and things like that. And yes, it was thought up by socialists. But it’s not a bad idea if it’s not politicized.

      1. I appreciate women every day. My web browsing history doesn’t lie.

        1. Dunno how I got there first, but I’m getting the Bebe women’s clothing ads on a couple of sites. I click on one every now and then to keep the bot linking them to me.
          It’s a pleasure looking at attractive young women wearing clothes I wish my dates wore when I was about that age.

  36. This is a headline, people: Fired Commentator sues ESPN, Denies Calling Venus Williams ‘Gorilla’

    Gorillas are different from guerillas, right? ESPN TV commentator Doug Adler apologized in January of this year after some viewers thought he compared Venus Williams’ performance during the Australian Open to that of a gorilla.

    Adler was fired by ESPN over the incident, and he has since filed a lawsuit against the sports network. Suggesting injury from the stress, Adler had a heart attack earlier this month in the wake of the controversy.

  37. That’s a fun website: Exclusive: 572 Stories by Fmr NY Daily News Crime Reporter Under Review After NYT Admits Source Fail

    iMediaEthics’s preliminary investigation of Deutsch’s Newsday coverage of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooter, Omar Mateen, already reveals evidence of the same problem in Deutsch’s Times story ? namely, quotations from what appear to be non-existent sources.

    Eric Baumer, quoted by Deutsch and described as Mateen’s coworker at the private security company G4S, never worked for the company, G4S told iMediaEthics.

    Aahil Khan, who Deutsch claimed was a “classmate” and “childhood friend” of Mateen’s, didn’t attend schools in Mateen’s school district, the district told iMediaEthics.

  38. So how did intel agency investigate trump ties to russia if previous admin didnt tap him??

    1. Look closely and you’ll find you answered your own question.

      1. Are you saying he was spied on which validates his claims?

        Or the russo trump narrative is bs since there was no spying in first place?

        1. He may have been spied on, but the president isn’t the one who would have ordered it, and if he was spied on that means there’s serious suspicion of criminal or treasonous activity. Why his supporters seem to want his claim validated on this escapes me.

          1. They didnt find anything which calls into question the motive for spying or it would have come out.

            The potus would likely know about an investigation like that

            So you are saying if he wasnt then the collusion narrative is based on bs?

            1. The investigation is ongoing.

              1. Who is doing it? Was he spied on or not?

                If not there is no reason for an investigation

                If they found nothing why investigate

                “The investigation is ongoing.”

                Is the agent Elvis alien love-child? The man on the grassy knoll?

  40. Anyone see hawaiis ridiculous lawsuit regarding travel ban arguing:

    It established a state religion in hawaii and hawaii citizens some are treated like second class citizens
