  1. There has even been talk of a ban on travel to the communist dictatorship.

    There’s certainly reciprocity.

    1. Hello.

      Wow. 32 comments in 10 minutes. I see improvement!

      1. The wound left by Robbie’s departure is slowly scabbing over.

        1. And the scab is sprouting a lustrous mop of shiny, golden hair.

        2. I bet he’s had like fiddy cocktails by now.

          1. He is halfway through Breath of the Wild already!

        3. So, what’s the story with Robby? Is he gone, or just on leave or something?

          1. Writing a book, I believe.

          2. He is on sabbatical writing a book. He also had an op-ed published in the New York Times* last weekend.

            *I KNEW IT!!!!!

            1. We don’t have those kind of interviews!

              He’s been interviewing for that job for years.

            2. Whaaaaat? And Reason didn’t post it? I can smell the writer’s room drama from here.

        4. Robby left?

          1. Robbie’s spending more time with his wife and his wife’s child.

          2. Good riddance. Hope he’s gone for good.

            1. Indeed

  2. Reporters across the nation ready their hot takes for the final results of Tuesday’s special congressional election in Georgia.

    Proggie tears incoming I imagine.

    1. Trump only won the district by 1 point. It’s been changing Dem for awhile. Sure, Price won by 20 points, but local politics is local politics. People liked the guy, not Republicans in general. I just don’t see this as much of a sign of anything. It was already a battleground district.

      The outcome is probably going to have the same vote difference as the presidential election, in either direction. Nothing shocking about it at all. A lot less shocking then, say, Trump winning Michigan.

      1. People liked the guy, not Republicans in general. I just don’t see this as much of a sign of anything.

        I’d say quite the opposite. Lots has been said already. Distancing yourself from Hitler puts you neck-and-neck in a Red or Pro-Trump district or is otherwise not a slam dunk.

        Not to forecast the death of a party but this is more of an “I’m not irrelevant yet!” moment than has been advertised.

        1. I can’t figure out what you’re trying to say here.

          1. I can’t figure out what you’re trying to say here.

            Trump was supposed to be political poison and the GOP was said to be divided and dying. Instead, a blue candidate is running on an anti-Trump agenda and can barely break even.

            Even if it’s decidedly (or at this point not) in Ossoff’s favor, it’s only going to be by like 5% and with a huge national push. Nobody else, democrat or republican, will suddenly be adopting the notion that if they veer left enough or veer away from Trump enough that it will hand them a tight race.

            Trump was supposed to be Hitler. Running against the Nazi party, even in Red States, should’ve been a slam dunk. So, either the Democratic Party is less popular/relevant/liked than previously imagined (worse than Nazis!), Trump isn’t Hitler, or both.

    2. Meanwhile, French Socialists lost 90% of their seats in Parliament (or whatever they call their legislative thingy).
      That news doesn’t seem to be getting much play. The math does not compute with the Proggie talking points

      1. How different _are_ La R?publique En Marche! from the Parti socialiste, really?

        Is it not a very fine line between Social Liberalism (in the European not North American sense) and Social Democracy?

      2. “Off with their heads!” – Red Queen

    3. Another moral victory and another dagger in the Trump Administration’s credibility.

    4. Oh there is no joy in proggyville tomight. That was $32 million well spent by the democrats.

  3. The few times I’ve taken Uber I’ve tipped cash.

        1. Uber was sold as a tipless, cashless transaction. Our whole society now suffers from tip-inflation. It’s getting to where you’re expected to tip everywhere. It’s exhausting. Just give me my ride, you negotiate your fee with Uber.

          1. You don’t tip the carni kid?

          2. Ok, that’s you. I liked the drivers so I tipped them a few bucks. What’s the big deal? Besides, like I said, I’ve only taken Uber a few times, as in like 4. If I took it all the time, I’d probably tip less often if at all.

            1. I never have cash when I take an Uber… or really ever. Well, I do sometimes have cash but I’m a grownup so my smallest bill is a $20. And because inflation has taken our fine nation *shakes cane* nothing seems to cost less than that, so I just end up with 20s and some coins in my pocket which go straight to the change jar.

              1. I wish change would just go away. I’d actually use more cash if I didn’t have to worry about getting change back.

                1. I like change. Gives me something to play with in my pocket besides by balls.

                  1. Just don’t accidentally tip with a testicle.

                2. All prices should be rounded to the nearest quarter, taxes included.

          3. At least with a car service tipping has a long history.

            But this crap where every food truck and coffee stand now has a tip jar is just ridiculous. And it works! On idiots.

            1. Fun fact: Most ‘tip’ jars are ‘primed’ by the establishment by stuffing a few loose $1 dollar bills in there to make it appear that tipping is customary or expected.

              The More You Know?

              1. I was actually going to speculate that. It’s revolting.

            2. Yeah. Counter staff don’t get tips. I’m ambivalent about tipping for table service, but that’s how it works here, so I deal.

              One nice thing about places where servers don’t work for tips is that they aren’t in a hurry to get rid of you. Although it does sometimes make it harder to get their attention when you want to pay your bill.

              1. If my Uber driver was going to refill my glass all evening, sure, maybe I’d tip.

              2. Although it does sometimes make it harder to get their attention when you want to pay your bill.

                ^ This.

                I was struck the first time I visited Europe that when you go into a restaurant, you have to actually go find someone who works there and tell them that you have entered the establishment with the intent of purchasing something in the very near future.

                1. Customer service is an American thing. It’s spreading, but it’s in America where it happens the most and the best.

                  1. Korean customer service is way better, and they’re horrified if you offer to tip them.

                  2. I suppose you’ve never been to India.

                    The way it was explained to me is that people like to tip there because it established social-status superiority between tipper and tippee.

                    On the other end of the spectrum – in Japan they would chase you down the street to return the money you left on the table at a restaurant should you leave a tip. Nobody would dare claim it. If they couldn’t find you I would bet they would have your tip stashed away in an envelope near the register for years just waiting for you to come back and claim it.

                    1. In France, they cleaned the Euro change out of the toll-tray before wife and I got back out from the office to collect the luggage and personal stuff.
                      ‘What change? Non!’

            3. A fun treat for a rainy afternoon is to report all the tip jar establishments to see if they are abiding by all the accounting laws on tips.
              I worked in a place in college where the owners tried to say all tips would get pooled and split with the kitchen staff, because they “didn’t get a chance to get tips”. I asked if the kitchen staff was paid the tip allowance minimum wage like the wait staff, or if they got a real wage. The owners said that was none of my business. The owners were the kitchen staff. I quit and ratted them out to the IRS.

          4. Our whole society now suffers from tip-inflation. It’s getting to where you’re expected to tip everywhere. It’s exhausting.

            Check out Mr. Pink over here.

            1. Can I be Mr. Pink?

              1. I was thinking about Chris Penn before bed last night not sure why, it seemed to happen right out of the fuckin’ blue.

                1. An astral visitation . . .

                  1. Some say that our existence and universe is a plane reality and sometimes our plane overlaps other universes, known as a multiverse.

                    So we get ghosts, astral visitations, black holes, whatever as all things are happening simultaneously.

                    1. Nah, it’s aliens.

            2. Mr. Pink: I don’t tip because society says I have to. Alright, I mean I’ll tip if somebody really deserves a tip. If they put forth the effort, I’ll give them something extra. But I mean, this tipping automatically, it’s for the birds. As far as I’m concerned they’re just doing their job.
              Mr. Blue: Hey, this girl was nice.
              Mr. Pink: She was OK. But she wasn’t anything special.
              Mr. Blue: What’s special? Take you in the back and suck your dick?
              Nice Guy Eddie: I’d go over twelve percent for that.
              Mr. Pink: Look, I ordered coffee, alright? And we been here a long fucking time and she’s only filled my cup three times. When I order coffee I want it filled six times.
              Mr. Blonde: Six times? Well, what if she’s too fucking busy?
              Mr. Pink: The words “too fucking busy” shouldn’t be in a waitress’ vocabulary.
              Nice Guy Eddie: Excuse me Mr. Pink, but the last fucking thing you need is another cup of coffee.

          5. Uber was sold as a tipless, cashless transaction.

            And then Uber drivers started giving fewer stars to the riders who didn’t tip. Check your Uber score. I was just as outraged when I found it out — that was 1.5 years ago. Here the idea that riders should be rated triggered another expansion of the tipping culture in the US.

          6. It’s getting to where you’re expected to tip everywhere.

            I can see how a full plate of scraps would count, but does forgoing a regularly scheduled beating of your orphans count as a tip or no?

            1. forbearance can be an element to a valid contract.

        2. Plus, with congestion pricing, do you still tip when you’re paying double the fare for the same ride? That’s the tip.

          1. Americans are simply programmed to tip, maybe one of our cultural virtues? I get confused every drunken time I use the Uber app as I look for where I enter the tip but cannot find it, because it doesn’t exist.

            1. Exactly. It doesn’t exist because it’s not supposed to be there. And no one on the planet who actually has a schedule to keep carries cash– and definitely not in denominations that would suffice a tip for an Uber driver.

              1. If I order a coffee that costs $2.80 and I lay down $3 and walk away, I’ll be keeping to my schedule better than you.

            2. Somehow, aside from table service in restaurants, I was never told about all of this tipping that is apparently expected (or perhaps it’s just not prevalent where I live among thrifty Yankees). Do people actually tip their mailman?

              1. I was shocked when I found out about hair cuts… but then I assimilated right fast.

              2. You’re supposed to give them something for Christmas. I don’t have any problem with tipping for table service in restaurants. It’s the uncertainty that you might be expected to tip in all other settings that annoys me. Thanks, Zeb. Now I know another advantage of living in the wilderness.

              3. The baggage handlers in Miami and Philly ask for tips, with a tone that suggests that it would be a shame if something happened to your luggage.

            3. It’s not about rewarding good service any more, it’s about showing you’re not cheap.

          2. Plus, with congestion pricing, do you still tip when you’re paying double the fare for the same ride?

            I’ve never seen this, so no.

            1. So what, you take Uber to your neighbor’s house?

              You take it to ball games when you don’t want to fight for parking with all the losers from the suburbs. When those games get out… congestion pricing.

              1. I’ve taken it home from the airport because it was too late to take the Metro. Twice I’ve taken it home because I was entirely too drunk to drive. And the other time I was running late and the Metro was taking forever because it fucking sucks. So in a way, I felt extra appreciative to the driver for arriving quickly and taking me straight to my destination.

                1. Fair enough. I’d like to take it home from the airport but our fine city made that illegal so I can only take it TO the airport.

                  1. So start a recall petition or move. Local control is supposed to be a libertarian platform plank or something.

            2. If it’s like a restaurant, you tip double, duh.

    1. I don’t know what about an Uber ride would warrant a tip. If the driver gets me through a neighborhood riot, I guess I’ll go digging for some cash.

  4. The whole point of Uber is that it was a cashless, tipless transaction.

    1. Hey, I’ve tipped waiters in Europe too!

      1. The Ugly American strikes again.

        1. I did too, but don’t worry, I felt bad when I realized what an ass I was.

          1. Does everyone look at you askance? I’m honestly curious.

          2. Yeah, I’m sure that waiter picked up the extra money and thought, “Christ, what an asshole.”

            1. Actually, since that’s what the Euro’s do when we pay for their defense, I assume you nailed it.

              The roll their eyes at the Douchey American, but it didn’t stop them from taking the money.

            2. Its Europe – he probably did.

      2. I don’t think it’s that uncommon to leave a small tip if they do a good job.

  5. Reporters across the nation ready their hot takes for the final results of Tuesday’s special congressional election in Georgia.

    This isn’t the first time the Dems’ hopes rested on an empty suit.

    1. Georgia polls close at 7:00 pm EST.

      I find it funny that Democrats are so hyped about thinking that Ossoff will win. They have pumped millions into this race against a well liked Republican former Secretary of State.

      Add up all Republican votes and you get 51%, 48.91% for Democrats and .09% for Independents. Ossoff loses.

      Democratic Jon Ossoff 92,673 48.12%
      Republican Karen Handel 38,071 19.77%
      Republican Bob Gray 20,802 10.80%
      Republican Dan Moody 17,028 8.84%
      Republican Judson Hill 16,870 8.76%
      Republican Kurt Wilson 1,820 0.95%
      Republican David Abroms 1,639 0.85%
      Democratic Ragin Edwards 504 0.26%
      Democratic Ron Slotin 491 0.25%
      Republican Bruce LeVell 455 0.24%
      Republican Mohammad Ali Bhuiyan 415 0.22%
      Republican Keith Grawert 415 0.22%
      Republican Amy Kremer 351 0.18%
      Republican William Llop 326 0.17%

  6. Tourism and travel to North Korea comes under increasing scrutiny in the wake of Otto Warmbier’s death

    Wait, wait, wait…. Tourism is a thing in N.K.?

    1. I think you know the deal.

      “Dude, that reminds me of the time I was in Pyongyang and this little North Korean girl came over to me and……”

      1. “Dude, that reminds me of the time I was in Pyongyang and this little North Korean girl came over to me and……”

        “….said, ‘You know, dear leader will kill you if you take that poster.'”

    2. Dennis Rodman seems to enjoy it there.

      1. Dennis Rodman is a CIA asset, he’s there for work not pleasure. Possibly a bit a both, after all that’s what Bond would do.

        1. I love that Dennis fucking Rodman is an intelligence asset now.

          1. I hope you did the requisite Chris Farley air quotes as you typed that.

          2. I love that Dennis fucking Rodman is an intelligence asset now.

            His memoirs are going to be legend.

        2. You know, when future-you from 2022 visits past-you in 2014, tells you that President Donald Trump and Dennis Rodman brought down North Korea, peacefully, in 2019, past-you won’t believe him.

  7. Reporters across the nation ready their hot takes for the final results of Tuesday’s special congressional election in Georgia.

    I just had a hot take too, but i’ve been eating a lot of Mexican lately.

      1. My name is Jennifer Lopez!

      2. Here is a hint: she has a porcelain complexion.

      3. I’m talkin’ ’bout poopin’, Paul.

        1. Paul thinks all turds are female.

          1. That is hella problematic.

  8. The National Review says libertarians need to give up on dereuglation…to save deregulation.

    The National Review says a lot of things.

    1. NR has said that Trotsky was not a bad guy

      http://www.nationalreview.com/…..n-schwartz

    2. What do want? Dereuglation! When do we want it? Nwo!

      1. OK, I chuckled.

        Thanks.

  9. Everyone’s favorite company Uber institutes new policies for its drivers, including a tipping option for grateful riders.

    Once again labor demands ruin it for everyone.

  10. Everyone’s favorite company Uber institutes new policies for its drivers, including a tipping option for grateful riders.

    Always awkward cause I never have cash on me unless I’m buying drugs — which, I suppose, is exactly why the Man wants to 86 the dollar bill.

    1. Sure he does, because your old dollar is going to be worth 86 of the New Dollars.

    2. No, he wants to 86 the hundred dollar bill, so that bag of 20’s you walk away with looks like Santa’s pack.

  11. The National Review says libertarians need to give up on deregulation…to save deregulation.

    We haven’t given up already?

  12. Tourism and travel to North Korea comes under increasing scrutiny in the wake of Otto Warmbier’s death

    No word on the millions of North Korean deaths and its effect on tourism.

  13. …one particularly asinine Slate article was mockingly titled, “Would I Cross the Street to Spit on You If You Were on Fire? There’s Always a Trade-Off.”

    The trade-off would be a flaming fist to the face.

    1. Fact: “One Particularly Asinine Slate Article” is the standard subheadline for all Slate articles.

  14. This taboo sex trend involves only your soul being penetrated

    Steve explained: “Feedback is very important during sexual intercourse and that’s sometimes lost in the physical world? but in the astral world, feedback is automatic, because you’re seeing their soul.”

    Ladies, give me your souls.

    1. The cadaver in that picture is unhealthy looking.

      1. Gah!! I hope he’s feeding her a cheeseburger with his other hand.

        1. Sure, euphemistically speaking.

    2. “People forget that the brain is the biggest erogenous zone.”

      “On you maybe.”

    3. I just astrally projected all over you, Crusty.

    4. That’s… not how sex works. THAT’S NOT HOW ANYTHING WORKS.

    5. I can’t help but wonder if “astral” sex got started with a misunderstood request in a noisy bar.

      1. OK, I lol’ed.

        Maybe I haven’t been spending enough time in the English language recently.

    6. Ladies, give me your souls.

      Astrally, I can only ejaculate to the sensation of one foot stepping on a fish.

      A sole soul sole soul fetish.

      Also, my astral refractory period vanishes if either the foot, the fish, or both are S. Korean.

      1. What you did there… I Seoul’d it

  15. Daniel Day-Lewis Quits Acting

    He did not give a reason for his retirement. In a statement, Day-Lewis’ spokeswoman, Leslee Dart, confirmed the news: “Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject. “

    Our milkshake has finally run dry.

    1. Method acting probably fucked up his personal relationships.

      1. Lincoln was the last straw for his last squeeze..

        1. Who want’s to be called ‘Mary Todd’ all night when they’re getting fucked?

          1. “He kept that stupid hat on all night!’

        2. Especially after his little movie got eclipsed by the Vampire Hunter biopic.

    2. He’s just preparing for a role as an actor who suddenly retires from acting.

      1. Boom. Solid third place threadwinner.

        1. You think i’m joking? I’m not!

          1. That’s why you get third place, on the off chance this is actually what he’s doing. Fucking method actors.

      2. Or he wants to try puppetry.

    3. First Flounder, now D Day

    4. Saddest news in weeks.

    5. AIDS, or cancer? It’s anyone’s guess!

    6. Daniel Day-Lewis Quits Acting

      Again? The guy is like the Elton John of acting.

      1. The lesson is on forging mystique 101 — you’re instructor is Casey Jones.

  16. To be fair, it IS kinda retarded to go to places known to be asshole litters and expect your government to come fetch you when assholes are gonna asshole.

    1. Heck, I think it’s an asshole move to be putting thousands of dollars into the coffers of a government that ranks right up with Hitler’s Third Reich for real-world atrocities. WTF kind of tourism is that anyway?

    1. What the shit did I do there?

      1. You got alpha’d, cuck.

      2. You SHAT that link.

        1. Try once more, and don’t cuck it up this time.

          1. I feel like I was just diagnosed with low-t.

            1. You’re definitely diagnosable…but I’m not sure that’s what you have…

        2. Nope.

        3. You are really bad at this. Have you considered not being just a shambles of a human being?

        4. GET OFF THE FUCKING STAGE YOU SUCK

      3. San Franciscoed the link.

    1. Ugh. She looks like my brother.

    2. Shit, now I need to change my haircut.

    3. A European soccer star?

      1. It would need designs shaved into it + a lot more hair gel. And neck tatts.

    4. I suppose it was only a matter of time until the transition was complete. Everything about it screams ‘trans’, although I hate to badmouth a trans person and imply that they would fuck their own sister because of their misplaced sexual urges. That seems unique to Lena and the Appalachia’s, by and large.

      1. I think she said she identifies as a teenage boy? But I wouldn’t go as far as to say she’s actually transitioning… I think it’s more getting onboard with this androgynous, non-binary haircut that all the woke activist celebrities seem to be sporting lately.

      2. Everything about it screams ‘trans’, although I hate to badmouth a trans person and imply that they would fuck their own sister because of their misplaced sexual urges.

        I didn’t generally conflate “Lena Dunham’s sexual urges” and “the urges of all trans persons”… until you said this.

    5. Angry German kid?

    6. A lesbian.

      Oh FFS look at hipster Ken doll below.

      1. Is one of his outfits a romphim?

        1. I’d assume that’s sold separately. One of the new, improved Ken dolls does have a man bun and dad bod though.

    7. I don’t know but I hear a hipsterish remix of Goodbye Horses in the background

    8. who does she look like?

      I was thinking a young Shane MacGowan, which isn’t accurate at all, but it’s hilarious.

    9. I think it actually makes her look slightly less shitty.

  17. Senator Harris Releases Amazing Spotify Playlist To Celebrate African-American Music Month

    The playlist features nearly 50 songs from classic artists like Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, and Nina Simone, while also featuring young and innovative talent such as SZA, Chance, and even Migos, yes you read that right, Senator Harris listens to Migos. Senator Harris has spoken about her love for hip-hop in the past, and definitely didn’t shy away from including it in her celebration of African-American music. Naturally, as Senator of California, she made sure to also include some classic west coast musicians like E-40, and Pac. The playlist covers the breadth and depth of black music in America and it will continue to expand until the month comes to a close.

    She’s so cool.

    1. Ok there, Chris Weidman.

      1. For those that don’t get the joke, when Weidman got kneed by Mousasi in his last fight, the doctor asked him what month it was, to see if he can continue fighting. It was nowhere near February.

    2. even Migos, yes you read that right, Senator Harris listens to Migos.

      This is why we consider the media to be useless.

    3. Naturally, as Senator of California, she made sure to also include some classic west coast musicians like E-40, and Pac. The playlist covers the breadth and depth of black music in America and it will continue to expand until the month comes to a close.

      This is why Veep is documentary. I actually see her sitting around a white board with her staff, carefully choosing the playlist as a way to communicate to potential voters.

      1. Anyone who believes a word of that fluff deserves having her as senator.

    4. Something tells me my playlist of German aggro/synth music wouldn’t go over so well during, uh… what month do we get?

      1. Cucktober

      2. Men in leather shorts never goes over well.

      3. my playlist of German aggro/synth music

        How many Tegan and Sara songs do you have on that playlist? Mind you, if you answer none I shall brand you as a traitor.

    5. I saw this episode of .

      1. Err…..VEEP

    6. yes you read that right, Senator Harris listens to Migos

      Senator Harris listens to Lawrence Welk. Some of her staff listen to Migos, and have calculated that this inclusion on the list will make Senator Harris seem hip and relevant.

      1. It’s Obama’s “summer reading list” all over again.

        1. Exactly. She is running the Barack playbook step by step*, and the Dems and their sycophants are so desperate for someone not named Clinton they will eat it up.

          *Suzanne Somers was a foxy lady.

      2. Change one letter on their name, and you have a Southern breakfast…

        1. Mmmm – migas.

          You do mean migas, right?

        2. OK I’m Southern and I’m stumped as to what breakfast I’d be eating.

          1. Migas, elk, and haggis. Duh.

    7. Harris is going to be the first woman president. She has the ambition and the machine supports her.

      1. Old Tracey Flick wasn’t enough to beat Trump the first time, so next time out they’re pretty likely to go with Sassy Photogenic Black Woman.

        Watch the hoot-outs commence when Harris starts throwing out snaps during the debates.

    8. Wait, aren’t the Migos Problematic?

      What does Senator Harris’s staff hate gays so much?

      1. MIGOS RAMP UP HOMOPHOBIA RUMORS AFTER REPORTEDLY “REFUSING” TO PERFORM WITH DRAG QUEENS ON SNL

        World of Wonder, the production company that commissioned several of the drag queens to perform with Katy on Saturday, wrote on their website that while the drag queens were present for “Swish Swish”, Migos were too uncomfortable for World of Wonder’s performers on stage for “Bon App?tit” ? despite Katy’s intention to have the queens in both sets.

        “I was one of the performers on that table with them the whole time, during the rehearsal for 3 days,” a source said. “On the day of the filming, when I got there, I was told to leave. I wasn’t on the set at the time, but we were asking what happened. They said it was because Migos doesn’t feel comfortable with having drag queens there.” Some queens were allegedly also unable to attend the after party, as per Migos request.

        1. Put that out on the Twitters!

          I hope she is made to apologize for her homophobic musical choices.

    9. No Prodigy?

  18. Not sure if you guys have seen this, but Michael Moynihan went to Evergreen and interviewed the president and students:

    1. Whu doesn’t Reason cover stuff like this????

      1. Their budget only allows them to travel by Vespa.

    2. Ok, sorry about that Mazalon, we are dicks around here. That video was posted in an article by The Jacket a few days back. But thanks for posting it. I am sure not everyone saw it.

      1. Okay, I get it. I actually am one of the people who didn’t see it.

      2. It was posted by Welch, you dipshit.

  19. Reporters across the nation ready their hot takes for the final results of Tuesday’s special congressional election in Georgia.

    I’ve seen reports that Dem areas are expecting “biblical rain” so I expect that’ll be one.

  20. Laura Loomer, who interrupted the Julius Caesar play in NYC has tweeted:

    “Please support my legal defense fund. I am facing charges of trespassing and civil disobedience.”

    I don’t think she understands what civil disobedience is. Nor do I think you can be charged with it.

    What’s interesting is that I read her plea for money at wesearchr.com earlier today and it also mentioned trespassing and civil disobedience. Now it’s been revised to “Laura was arrested for speaking out against this performance.”

    1. Well, being honest about what she was charged with makes it sound like she committed a crime.

      1. Believe me, I felt as much guilty pleasure as the next guy when this play got interrupted again. But “arrested for speaking out against this performance” isn’t exactly the whole truth.

    2. It’s almost as if it was all a crass publicity stunt to generate attention for herself and a payday.

    3. Note to any alt-right shitlords and ladies reading these comments–the commies at the National Lawyers Guild aren’t going to give you pro bono legal defense for anything, ever. That’s reserved exclusively for left-wing fellow travelers like Antifa.

  21. Which in its current form will last longer?

    Communist Cuba or The United States?

    1. Communist Cuba will be admitted as a state following the fifth sequel to Trump; “Return of the Pelosi”

  22. Fuck that whole section of Atlanta, and fuck this runoff. There are lawn signs for Ossoff in areas of the city that can’t even vote for him. The hashtag Resistance is defined by dying for any and all hills you encounter.

  23. “?Tourism and travel to North Korea comes under increasing scrutiny in the wake of Otto Warmbier’s death. There has even been talk of a ban on travel to the communist dictatorship.”

    Hell, let ’em go. But don’t come whining to papa when you get your ass in a jam.

  24. I found a great site that focuses on stay at home mom’s complete guide to gaining a serious amount of money in very little time. While being able to earn an passive income staying home with your kids. If you are someone who needs more money and has some spare time, this site is perfect for you. Take a look at…
