    The Senate will delay their summer recess to complete "action on important legislative items" Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said today, placing some of the blame on Democrats for delaying executive appointments.

  • South Korea throws some shade at its Northern neighbor, saying that the long-range missiles it has recently tested would likely not be able to survive re-entry into the atmosphere.
  • The Economist warns that Brexit will raise the price of booze imported to Britain, including staples like Guinness and Bailey's Irish Cream.
  • An Olympia, Washington man will face federal charges for sending a severed finger, a joint of marijuana, and a bullet to the IRS. The 68-year old Normand Lariviere nursed grievances against the agency related to his loss of a civilian defense contracting job.
  • Is Donald Trump a conservative? Conservative Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) says yes.

  1. The Senate will delay their summer recess…

    Something about not taking their ball and going home?

    1. Hello.

  2. South Korea throws some shade at its Northern neighbor, saying that the long-range missiles it has recently tested would likely not be able to survive re-entry into the atmosphere.

    Because they’re too fat. Get the hint, North Korea?

    1. Dear Eater does not approve this message.

  3. An Olympia, Washington man will face federal charges for sending a severed finger, a joint of marijuana, and a bullet to the IRS.

    I’m curious about where he got the finger, but Britches fucked up the link.

    1. I’m curious about what the charges are. I’m assuming there’s rules against sending medical waste and illegal substances and ammunition through the mail, but I’m betting there’s some sort of terroristic threat crap involved.

    2. Britches

      Is it too late for a vote of ‘Britsch-Tits’?

    3. Goddammit man, you don’t literally give someone your finger!

    4. I’ve seen this episode of Black Mirror, and it cannot be unseen.

    5. I’d cut him some slack on the bomb-threat since he cut his whole finger off and all.

  4. Hello. I’M HERE FOR THE BEST TRUMP FELLATIO EVAH!

    1. Lonely Troll Fucks Up Unpopular Meme In Front Of Wrong Audience; No Film at 11

      1. Can I just tell you I found the whole thing dumb in the first place?

        1. Nobody would believe you.

          1. I would believe his emotional assistance animal found it dumb for him.

      2. “Many such cases!”

      3. Unpopular Meme

        Even the boring trolls are doing it.

        BEST M*M* EVAH!

      1. Of course shreek is going to bitch up with amsoc. Of course.

        1. I thought shreek was DanO. Buttplug is his own thing.

          1. No, Buttplug is definitely shreek. DanO is AddictionMyth/dajjal and seems to have gotten banned again.

            Of course, you could go full Mikey and assume that they’re all the same person, who is Dave Weigel, but you don’t want to do that, do you?

            1. My head hurts.

            2. Don’t forget that you and Crusty are one and the same. And also possibly Weigel.

              1. True. And Chipper Morning Etc. is also us/Weigel according to WakaWaka, who may also be Mikey. And here’s the real kicker: Weigel is Tulpa.

              2. We are all Weigel.

                1. We are all Weigel.

                  Fuck you.

                  Sideways.

                  With Negan’s bat.

            3. An obvious ploy to distract everyone from his own identity.

            4. You’re too stupid to realize that Mikey is also Weigel false flagging the other accounts so we all think they ARE different people.

              1. And everyone else is a cuckaschmuck gay boy.

            5. you can get banned here?

              1. you can get banned here?

                yes. thank you, mary stack.

            6. DanO is AddictionMyth/dajjal and seems to have gotten banned again.

              Thank the Old Gods and the New.

        2. Days, sometimes weeks, go by when I don’t enlighten you all with my posts here.

          1. Those are the good times.

          2. Apparently turning tricks at the Tijuana donkey shows is keeping you quite busy these days.

          3. We’d appreciate if you’d go off and die someplace.

      2. But are YOU in the right place? Methinks not.

        BEST P*N EVAH!

  5. The Senate will delay their summer recess to complete “action on important legislative items”

    They’re finally fixing the tax code, right? RIGHT?!

  6. The Economist warns that Brexit will raise the price of booze imported to Britain, including staples like Guinness and Bailey’s Irish Cream.

    There’s always Keystone Light or Natty Boh. We’ll make you a great deal to get drunk.

    1. Who gives a shit?

      What will it do to the prices of whisky exported from Britain?

  7. I’m going to take Reason’s continued silence on the Donald Trump Jr. revelations as further evidence of their continuing campaign to either discredit or cover for the President, whichever flatters my biases more.

    1. They’re above all that fake news being reported by CNN and the NYSlimes.

      1. We can’t all be bathed in the light of Revolutionary Truth like you are, comrade. Can you get the paper edition of Pravda delivered where you are?

        1. “News” printed on paper? Such luxuries.

    2. Or they’re one of the only calm and rational sources of news out there who will write put out a well-balanced piece about the entire thing within the next day. Shit’s still happening. We could all do with some calming the fuck down and waiting one single day for a thorough account of the news.

    3. I had an opinion on Don Jr. before there was even a story about Don Jr.

  8. Is Donald Trump a conservative? Conservative Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) says yes.

    I’d long had a suspicion that the word “conservative” didn’t mean anything anymore, so it’s nice to have that confirmed.

    1. It used to mean “Bible-beating idiot” – now we can just drop the first part.

      1. Your brand is worse than Trump. Keep doing what you’re doing.

      2. Now just “beating idiot”?

    2. Luckily, I can dislike people regardless of all these labels.

  9. The Obama mommas at the Reason home office refuse to cover this, because it makes their hero look bad: Obama’s West Wing frat house. Aide tells how all-white speech team called each other ‘bro’, drank, exploited their jobs to sleep with women, made d*** jokes – and president deployed the f-bomb

    He also reveals how the team – and other White House aides – drank, smoked, called each other ‘bro’, and liked – or pretended to like – only college basketball to please the president.

    One aide used his White House business card to sleep with a blonde D.C. newscaster and boast about it to his co-workers.

    Litt does not name the woman, but says that the aide who slept with her was clearly uninterested in a continuing relationship with her.

    My guess: It was Mika.

    1. So Veep would be more accurate if everyone was Jonah?

      1. Favreau’s phermones make the bitches moan.

    2. Based on the one first hand account I’ve heard of interactions with Obama (I have a vague acquaintance who is a big Democrat donor and got invited to Camp David), Obama likes to get drunk, hang out with celebrities and say “fuck” a lot. So he was probably right there with the dudebros in the speech team.

      1. Obama and Hillary’s shameless celebrity-whoring has to be one of the most obnoxious features of Democrat party politics in the last few years.

  10. An Olympia, Washington man will face federal charges for sending a severed finger, a joint of marijuana, and a bullet to the IRS.

    You want a finger? I can get you a finger, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don’t wanna know about it, believe me.

    1. I can get you a finger in under an hour. WITH nail polish on it.

      1. The hyrax is dead already, huh.

        1. Hyraxes don’t have fingers, you goon. They have weird little rubbery nubs that stick to rocks.

          1. Ok, Mr. hyrax expert. That doesn’t explain why you put nail polish on them nubs.

            1. To make them pretty, duh.

    2. The link is not to the correct story.

      I want to know whose finger that is!!!

  11. Man checks single can of beer as luggage on flight

    The Australian ale fan put his lone can of Emu Export on a Qantas flight from Melbourne to Perth on Saturday, the site reports.

    Dean said that he knew his precious cargo had arrived when he saw a group of people snapping pictures at the baggage claim area.

    “Sure enough there she was, alone on the carousel, proudly making her way around,” he said of his beloved brew ? adding that he had planned to file a lost luggage report had it not turned up.

    1. That’s awesome. Respect.

    2. That is great. Imagine baggage check.

    3. “Travelin’ light
      It’s the only way to fly…”

  12. Is Donald Trump a conservative? Conservative Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) says yes.

    Meh. Who says Lee is a conservative?

  13. Alt-text: The jowls are not what they seem.

  14. An ice cream sandwich made with chicken skin? Yes, and it’s actually pretty good.

    Bantam chef Katsuya Fukushima, who created the dessert based on Moroccan bastilla, surrounds the skin with so many other comforts that the fried bird epidermis can get lost among the pile up of ingredients. The ice cream sandwich is more literal than many of its kind: A couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream are sandwiched in a toasted King’s Hawaiian bun, a roll sweetened with a touch of liquid sugar. The skin is scattered atop the ice cream, and then the whole sandwich is sprinkled with powdered sugar, cinnamon and kinako, a roasted soybean flour often used as a garnish in Japanese desserts.

    Yum yum in the tum tum.

    1. Assuming the skin is crisped up, why would that be a surprise?

      1. Assuming the skin is crisped up, why would that be a surprise?

        I’m not gonna lie, IMO, pretty much any part of an ice cream sandwich only detracts from the chicken skin.

        I think the most incredulous part is that chicken fried [dessert] was supposedly invented in Japan.

    2. The grossest shit in that is the kinako.

      1. I’m a little on the fence between that and the Hawaiian roll.

    3. You know an abomination like that could only come out of Fukushima

  15. Nothing on Seattle’s new tax on the rich?

    From The Seattle Times

    “I would love to be taxed,” the 24-year-old from Ballard testified, drawing applause from a room packed with supporters of the tax.

    1. I’m curious if they are aware that they can give all the money they want to the government?

      1. I’m sure they are, but they’d rather give all of your money to the government.

      2. Payments being voluntary takes all the fun out of being taxed. It’s a lot like playing out a rape fantasy.

        1. I think we just learned something about Zeb’s sex life that none of us wanted to know.

          1. Yeah, sure you didn’t.

            1. Zeb’s rape fantasy starts with the raper popping open a cold IPA and then pouring it down the drain.

              1. Rappers pooping? What the hell is going on here?

                You’ve got it all wrong. My rape fantasy involves Venus and Serena Williams and a cold 12 pack of Zima.

                1. And Venus and Serena take turns shoving cold bottles of Zima in your rectum?

                  1. Get out of my head!

                2. go on…

    2. It’s a good thing there isn’t a city immediately adjacent to Seattle that’s just as pretty and not run by crazies that tax refugees could flee to.

      Oh, wait.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellevue,_Washington

      1. Wait until they learn that Bill Gates doesn’t have a Seattle mailing address.

    3. Funny how Ballard claims to make more than $170K a year, but not the $250K that the tax increase starts at.

      Seattle may assert that taxing total income is different from taxing net income, while also seeking a ruling that income isn’t property.

      I doubt they’d feel the same if their personal bank accounts were suddenly emptied.

  16. This Town Melts Down
    A veteran political reporter takes stock of how Washington has ? and hasn’t ? changed in the time of Trump.

    Since that description from a New York Times article will surely turn some people off:

    In 2013, I published a book called ”This Town,” an anthropological snapshot of the gilded, inbred carnival of early-21st-century Washington. It portrayed Washington as a permanent feudal village of bipartisan politicians, former officeholders, celebrity staff members, lobbyists, journalists, hangers-on and usual-suspects of all stripes. No one seemed to ever leave, because why would they? So-called change elections came and went ? Obama in 2008, Tea Partyers in 2010 ? but nothing seemed to change, except that the people involved seemed to grow richer. Washington kept celebrating itself while the rest of the country became more and more disgusted. The book’s original subtitle, ”The Way It Works in Suck-Up City,” reflected a city of norms, fixed positions and predictable guidelines. This was a static system, and you could always figure out how to game it if you stuck around or paid someone who did. This was the Swamp that Trump had promised to drain.

    It’s a good read.

    1. Interesting comment from McCain:

      ”If I were a Democrat right now, I’d be going after Trump for not telling the truth,” McCain said. ”I’d leave the issues, and just say, ‘Look, you can’t trust this guy, you can’t trust him.’?”

      The media in particular have been hammering on this for two years now, to the point they’re keeping a running tally of Trump’s bullshitisms, yet the man is President of the United States. I think we’re starting to see exactly why McCain got cornholed in two Presidential election campaigns.

      1. Pot calling the kettle “black”.

        1. BLACK KETTLES MATTER!!!111!!!111!!!111!!111!!!!!!!!11111!!

    2. It was 12:30, but the president was not eating lunch. He was watching a recording of ”Fox and Friends” from about four hours earlier on a large TV mounted on the wall. This was one of those stretches when Trump was tweeting a lot, including attacks on the mayor of London following a terrorist attack on the city the previous weekend. The tweets were becoming a growing topic of concern among Republicans, many of whom were urging him to stop. But like most reporters, I found his tweets far more illuminating than anything the White House press office could ever disgorge. I urged him to keep it up.

      Trump assured me that he would keep tweeting. ”It’s my voice,” Trump said of Twitter, enumerating how many millions of followers he had. ”They want to take away my voice,” Trump said. ”They’re not going to take away my social media.

      He doesn’t even watch that drivel live? What a jabroni.

      1. understands what it’s like to be a member of Congress except another member of Congress.” That has become another hallmark of life in the modern swamp: Common humanity is best expressed in private.

        Then be a leader and do something about it. Hug a Dem!

  17. An Olympia, Washington man will face federal charges for sending a severed finger, a joint of marijuana, and a bullet to the IRS.

    I was with ya until the marijuana, seems like mixed signals to me.

  18. Death spiral? Obamacare insurers may be having ‘best year’ yet under ACA
    BY TONY PUGH
    tpugh@mcclatchydc.com

    New data on the improving finances of the nation’s individual insurers are calling into question repeated Republican claims that Obamacare marketplaces are collapsing under the Affordable Care Act.

    For months, Republican leaders from President Donald Trump and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price to House Speaker Paul Ryan have said Obamacare was crumbling under its own weight and could not be saved. And this week, when HHS announced a 38 percent decline in the number of insurers that want to offer coverage next year in states that use the federal marketplace, Price said, “The situation has never been more dire.”

    My My My – DEATH SPRIAL! BLOOP! DERP!!!!!

    http://www.mcclatchydc.com/new…..01649.html

    Peanuts wrong again…….

    1. Tell us how the cost of healthcare has dropped since Obamacare passed–after you’ve paid your bet, of course.

      1. Year over year health care costs have only gone up the last 30-40 years.

        The rate of increase slowed during Obama’s tenure – largely due to the Bush crash in 2008.

        1. For such a ‘classical liberal’ as yourself, you’d know health care costs increased because of government regulation and interference. Medical malpractice didn’t help either.

          None of which Obamacare addressed – at least from what I’ve heard and read.

          1. Regulation is not even close to the primary reason health care costs increased – innovation/technology are. We have expensive “life-saving” treatment for all sorts of maladies we would just let someone die with 50-60 years ago.

            And the ACA is attempting to address that – with IPAB (Sarah Palin’s death panels).

            Its time to tell people -“You’re gonna die soon anyway. We won’t spend $250,000 keeping you alive a little longer”.

            Grow up someday and lose the partisan talking points, Rufus.

            1. Regulation is not even close to the primary reason health care costs increased – innovation/technology are.

              Wow! Because finding a better way to do something for the same price or the equivalent thing for a less price didn’t happen at all and, even if it did, it is intrinsically not innovation… I mean, it’s like the socialism has eaten away that part of your brain. Almost like instead of color blindness and rods and cones, you’re missing some fundamental logic structures in your brain.

              1. o do something for the same price or the equivalent thing for a less price didn’t happen at all

                Don’t be an idiot.

                What did a triple bypass cost in 1950?

                Zero – since you probably don’t know.

                What did one cost in 2015?

                $300,000?

                How is that “something for the same price or the equivalent thing for a less price didn’t happen at all” ?

                1. How is that “something for the same price or the equivalent thing for a less price didn’t happen at all” ?

                  You misunderstand my bewilderment. I’m not bewildered that it did or didn’t happen or whatever with regard to healthcare, I’m bewildered that you’re completely blind to the fact that it even could, that it exists as a concept.

                  It’s like a you’re suffering from form of fluent aphasia.

                2. Don’t be an idiot.

                  What did a triple bypass cost in 1950?

                  Hey dummy–what did a normal live birth and two days in a private hospital room cost in the 1950s versus today?

                  1950s: About $800-1,000, inflation-adjusted (real cost: about $50-$150).
                  Today: $25K, per the bill we got for the birth of our youngest. The cost for the procedure alone is about $10,000, which is also the current average.

                  How the fuck does “technology/innovation” result in a 1000-percent inflation-adjusted increase, just for the birth procedure?

                  1. Just call a local midwife and pay $200.

                    That is equivalent to 1950.

                    1. You truly are a stupid human being.

          2. $2,500/yr in savings for a family of four never materialized, in fact the premiums went up, as did copays and deductibles.

            There are still 20 million uninsured. 7 yrs later. We should have near 100% by now, not 50%.

            You and your ilk have much to answer for.

            1. “You and your ilk have much to answer for.”

              And many, many lies to avoid doing so, right, turd, you lying POS?

        2. Pathetic deflection, given the sunshine-and-roses promises that the administration rolled out when the law was passed. The Soave “to be sure” part is particularly telling:

          Certainly, some marketplaces remain under enormous pressure. Far fewer people than originally expected enrolled into marketplace coverage and those who did were sicker, older and more costly than insurers expected. As losses mounted, insurers sharply increased premiums in 2017, making coverage unaffordable for many as enrollment slipped. Some insurers exited unprofitable markets altogether, leaving 38 rural counties in Ohio, Indiana and Nevada with the possibility of no coverage options next year, according to Kaiser. Five states ? Alabama, Alaska, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Wyoming ? have only one insurer offering marketplace coverage this year.

          It’s also telling that you rigorously defend a plan that was supposed to provide insurers with paybacks–i.e., corporate welfare– until Trump decided to unilaterally nuke that part of the ACA.

          1. No, there is much in the ACA to be critical of. But DEATH SPIRAL!! is just stupidity and not the least bit accurate.

            The marketplace section of the ACA is to be applauded. The mandates are not to be.

            1. It’s very accurate. It is in a death spiral. Some states are left with only one insurer in the exchange. Other states have had wholesale takeovers of their exchanges by the federal government. It’s a death spiral. It may be slow and grinding, but it’s a death spiral. And it’s happening in the very way it was predicted. The exchange insurers would become unsustainable, leading to price increases which would cause people to flee the exchange, leading to more unsustainable revenue projections etc.

              that’s a death spiral.

              1. They lost 38% of insurers this year, but it’s feeling much better!

            2. But DEATH SPIRAL!! is just stupidity and not the least bit accurate. The marketplace section of the ACA is to be applauded.

              Hey dummy, if the ACA was creating a robust healthcare marketplace, insurers wouldn’t be exiting it left and right–they’d be tripping over themselves to be included. Just because you can’t understand basic mathematics doesn’t change this fact.

              1. If the ACA delivered as promised, Team Blue would be in total control of Fedgov and probably be running half the states outright.

              2. Even where you can predictably blame the Republican Kulak or Wrecker for sabotaging the god-like perfection of the ACA, when the Kulak’s sinister diktats were reversed the results were exactly as predicted, which is what the Kulak’s and wreckers were trying to avoid.

            3. You know who else had trouble with man dates?

              1. Lance Armstrong?

        3. Palin’s Buttplug|7.11.17 @ 4:55PM|#
          “Year over year health care costs have only gone up the last 30-40 years.”

          Turd shouts LOOK OVER THERE!
          Got it, turd.

    2. What is a death spiral? Premiums go up, people drop coverage, premiums go up more to compensate, more people drop coverage, etc.

      Well, rates haven’t stopped going up. http://www.pronoeo.net/health-…..ease-2017/

      The uninsured rate has been flattish for the past couple of years at about 11-12%. That’s the bottom unless rates start to decrease (or at least stop increasing) or something else changes dramatically. But as rates continue to rise, more people will start dropping coverage.

      Just because some insurance companies had a good first quarter doesn’t mean that they aren’t in a death spiral. Also, look at the language in the article.

      “Now it looks like they’re on track to be profitable and that they’re actually having the best year that they’ve had since the ACA began,” said Cynthia Cox, associate director of health reform at Kaiser.

      So their BEST year (so far) under the ACA has them ON TRACK to be profitable. Um, yeah.

      1. Premiums go up, people drop coverage, premiums go up more to compensate, more people drop coverage, etc.

        No, that is called a “market”.

        The ACA won’t fail because people opt out of it. It will be on stronger financial footing if so.

        1. So the mandate was unnecessary to make it work?

          Get your talking points straight.

        2. Palin’s Buttplug|7.11.17 @ 5:26PM|#
          “The ACA won’t fail because people opt out of it. It will be on stronger financial footing if so.”

          Sure. The two remaining members will pay the entire bill, you fucking imbecile.

    3. This seems like a nonsequitur.

      Why do we want insurance companies to be more profitable? That just means they are raising rates even faster than the cost of healthcare is going up.

      Meanwhile they are pulling out of the marketplaces, so either those are in a death spiral as predicted, or they are super awesome and performing exactly as intended to curb costs (and by extension, profits).

      1. Companies don’t pull out of a healthy market unless there is too much competition.

  19. Orr: “When I was a kid, I used to walk around all day with crab apples in my cheeks. One in each cheek.”

    Yossarian: “Why?”

    Orr (tittering triumphantly): “Because they’re better than horse chestnuts. When I couldn’t get crab apples, I used horse chestnuts. Horse chestnuts are about the same size as crab apples and actually have a better shape, although the shape doesn’t matter a bit.”

    Yossarian: “Why did you walk around with crab apples in your cheeks? That’s what I asked.”

    Orr: “Because they’ve got a better shape than horse chestnuts. I just told you that.”

    Yossarian: “Why, you evil-eyed, mechanically-aptituded, disaffiliated son of a bitch, did you walk around with anything in your cheeks?”

    Orr: “I didn’t walk around with anything in my cheeks. I walked around with crab apples in my cheeks. . . .”

    1. Where are the Snowdens of yesteryear?

    2. So constitutionXXXX is Orr?
      Explains a lot.

  20. FYI: On this “Prime Day,” Barnes & Noble has its own Criterion sale, every title half off. Which pretty much puts their prices at what a normal DVD or Blu-ray will cost ya.

    1. Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs is the top bestseller, which is disturbing.

  21. WSJ had an interesting article on the parliamentary tricks that Schumer is using to block confirmation of even the most trivial appointments. e.g. Requiring cloture votes and 30 hours of debate on every single one. Reality is that McConnell is being a pansy for letting him do it.

    1. Reality is that McConnell is being a pansy cuck for letting him do it.

      Cuck is the preferred nomenclature.

      1. BEST C*CK EVAH!

  22. I’m trying to piece together what Dear Leader Jr. is trying to do. He claimed that he went to meet a Russian civilian with ties to the government and that the primary purpose of that meeting was to talk about US sanctions and the Russian restriction on adopting Russian children. But I don’t see any evidence of that from the email chain that he published. Have I mixed up meetings or is this just another example of Jr.’s pattern of lying and then incriminating himself and his brother-in-law on twitter?

    1. Wait, back up, we’re going to impeach DTrump Jr. now?

      1. Where did I say that?

        1. I didn’t mean to put words in your mouth, I’m just having trouble with the master plan. I assumed when you said ‘lying and then incriminating…on twitter’, that these people were on trial for a crime and that their twittering was evidence. Sorry if I misunderstood, but if you have a newsletter for those of us who would like to follow along, I can’t seem to find it.

      “I’m trying to piece together what Dear Leader Jr. is trying to do.”

      This’d be like explaining arithmetic to a beagle; you’re nowhere close to being able to understand.

  23. i’d send those IRS assholes a toe, maybe. definitely not a joint.

  24. How about a story on Seattle enacting a 2.25 percent income tax on high income residents, in violation of Washington state law? And regressives calling it “fair” because it will collect $140 million from 20,000 citizens out of the 660,000 in the city. How is that not just a targeted cash grab? At least the money will go to good uses, right? “Transit services and affordable housing” are the awesomely wonderful things they want to spend the stolen loot on.

    1. “Transit services and affordable housing” are the awesomely wonderful things they want to spend the stolen loot on.

      Denver’s current mayor is having a conniption fit because he’s flabbergasted that a city that gained 1,000 new residents a month over the last year yet hasn’t built enough housing to keep up with the demand has suddenly become one of the most expensive cities to live in relative to income.

    2. Oh, and “sales tax relief” for the poor — like sales taxes will ever be cut in Seattle.

    3. Supporters waved signs saying:

      “When we fight, we win!

      $15/hr (check)
      Tax the rich (check)
      Rent control (no check yet)”

  25. The Senate will delay their summer recess…
