    Sean Spicer has resigned as White House press secretary. The New York Times was the first to report on the news, and Spicer himself confirmed it over Twitter. He will remain in his post for another month, after which he will be replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

  • Sean Hannity has had his William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence snatched away from him. The award was supposed to be presented to the Fox News host by the Media Research Center at their September Gala. Politico reports that Christopher Buckley, the late National Review founder's son, objected to Hannity receiving the award. Hannity and the MRC have said that the change is the result of a "scheduling conflict."
  • Several Canadian members of the travelling equestrian show Cavalia have been arrested in China for smoking weed. Two Canadians remain in prison in China, however both the Canadian government and Cavalia are working to get them released.
  • Justine Damond, the unarmed Australian woman shot by Minneapolis police Saturday, "did not have to die" according to Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said. Mayor Betsy Hodges has made similar statements, although both have stopped short of calling the shooting illegal. Read Reason's coverage of the story here.
  • The BBC reports on Rob Spence, a filmmaker with one human eye and one robot eye!

  1. Sean Spicer has resigned as White House press secretary.

    He was too beautiful for this world.

    1. Hello.

      “Justine Damond, the unarmed Australian woman shot by Minneapolis police Saturday, “did not have to die” according to Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said. Mayor Betsy Hodges has made similar statements, although both have stopped short of calling the shooting illegal.”

      You think?

      But hey. Things happen when people have to get home to their families. Procedures were followed-ish.

      1. I snark about that incident only to avoid getting incredibly depressed and ranting about woodchippers.

        So far it’s almost working.

        1. I offer the following article for the commentators who have become more numb to murders than you seem to have, XenoZooValentine (commentators such as Rufus to whom you responded). Thus, please do not read this.

          To me the article appears as a “sanitized” version of what was intentionally done.

      2. Except if you or I shot an unarmed woman for approaching our car and talking to us through the window, we’d be in jail on murder charges, not on paid vacation at home.

    2. Melissa McCarthy hardest hit

  2. …after which he will be replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

    What unholy amalgam is this???

    1. At least they didn’t name her Chelsea.

    2. She’s a Bible-thumping socialist!

      1. And he’s an alt-right feminist! Together, they fight crime!

  3. Amazing that someone as lame as Chris Buckley even fines Hannity unbearable.

  4. Several Canadian members of the travelling equestrian show Cavalia have been arrested in China for smoking weed.

    Lucky for them the Chinese police isn’t full of trigger happy cowards.

    1. You probably don’t ever hear about it when they are.

    2. Chinese tank drivers, OTOH…

  5. Hannity and the MRC have said that the change is the result of a “scheduling conflict.”

    Hannity’s schedule was full kissing the president’s ass.

    1. You misspelled “sucking” there.

      1. He also misspelled ‘dick.’

        1. Nah, “sucking the president’s ass” was correct.

    2. That’s odd, our resident lefties seem to think we love Hannity

      1. Am I a resident lefty? Was that aimed at me?

  6. SPICY…………OUT!

  7. Sean Spicer has resigned as White House press secretary.

    Mooooooooooooch.

    Scaramucci spoke confidently from the podium and made an effort to call on as many reporters as possible, before ending the press conference with an air kiss to the media. Many reporters described Scaramucci’s performance as “smooth,” while others praised his comfortable speaking style.

    He’s also not fat, doesn’t chew and swallow dozens of pieces of gum everyday, tans, and is a dapper dandy.

    1. Why can’t he be president??

      1. Same reason Romney couldn’t be president.

        I don’t know about his policies, but by God that man’s hair was presidential.

    2. That dude from Jersey Shore really moved up in the world.

    3. Isn’t the first rule of PR something like “don’t pick a spokesperson named after a James Bond Villain”?

      If not, it should be.

      1. The names of most political hacks these days support my hypothesis that we’re in a fictional universe.

        “I was in a computer game. Funny as hell, it was the most horrible thing I could think of.”

  8. A good way to end the week: the (Japanese) trailer for the new Charlie Sheen, Whoopie Goldberg, LUIS GUZMAN movie, 9/11.

    I have no idea if this high art is meant to be released in the states. Maybe VOD.

    1. Whoa, is this how the rest of the world feels when Hollywood makes movies about their history?

      It feels wrongish.

      1. Japan does this to their own history too. So part of it is a Japan problem.

        1. As the video is gone now and literally nothing about this movie is japanese, your statement makes zero sense.

    2. I said extra foam.

      1. I’m flattered when you train your eye on me, but your previous handle really was perfect.

        1. No way man, people said I was worthless and a waste of time, and that only idiots would have anything to do with me.

          1. I assume there was a also a cuck or two in there.

  9. >>>that Christopher Buckley, the late National Review founder’s son

    Never Trumpers hit Hannity where it hurts! Trophy case.

    1. So am I suppose to care about an award I never heard of being given out by a guy whose claim to fame is that he is someones son to a guy who is one of many reasons why I don’t have cable TV?

      1. politico says “yes!”

      2. ^^Trumpsters hit hardist.

      3. Well, only in years when the award distribution process involves dissing a right-wing partisan.

  10. Ben Affleck’s Batman Future in Doubt as Warner Bros. Plots Franchise

    The studio is working on plans to usher out Affleck’s Batman gracefully, a source says, addressing the change in some shape or form in one of the upcoming DC films.

    Tell me: why is life even worth living?

    Also, list your suggestions for his replacement!

    1. Cesar Romero

    2. I actually really liked Affleck as Batman after being sure that I wouldn’t. Funny that of all people, Affleck is the guy that brings more manliness to the bat which was sorely needed.

      1. Wtf was Christian Bale, chopped liver?

        1. He was good, just not as gritty.

          1. He wasn’t the right build.

            1. Yeah, that works better for a Bond. Like Pierce Brosnan. Another guy I didn’t think I would like in a role but turned out to be pretty good.

              1. Really? I thought Brosnan was too slender, and it didn’t look like he could pull off the fight scenes. I thought they deliberately tried to make Affleck into a beefier Batman, which was cool.

                1. “You make me want to be a better Batman.”

                  1. It makes sense that I was the best you could do.

                2. Yeah, that’s why I thought I would hate Brosnan (Remington Steele, really?) as Bond but I thought he did fine. I agree they beefed up Affleck but I thought he did a good job with the character as well.

              2. “Like Pierce Brosnan. Another guy I didn’t think I would like in a role but turned out to be pretty good.”

                I like to call him Pierce Bronson.

            2. It’s a hard role to cast. So,done who looks like Bruce Wayne, who is also around 6′ 2″ and can be built up to a very lean 220-230lbs., and also has the acting chops to play the role well.

          2. So Ray Winstone?

            1. So Ray Winstone?

              44 Inch Chest.

      2. And while male stars have been able to stretch their action-film relevance further in an age when there are fewer bankable young stars (Robert Downey Jr. is 52 and going strong as Iron Man)

        I suspect that having a costume that allows them to use pretty much anyone as a stand in for the action sequences makes it much easier to be old Iron Man.

        1. The male actors get older while the female lead is always the same age. Same old hollywood story because it still makes money. The biggest male action stars do movies right up until they die.

        2. Iron Man wears an armored powered exoskeleton. Bateman wears a mildly protective bodysuit and relies on his strength and athleticism to best criminals to a pulp with his bare hands. Batman should be in his 20’s to 30’s, like in the comic books. If you want to see a Batman in his 50’s read Frank Miller’s excellent ‘The Dark Knight Returns’.

    3. Paul Reubens

    4. Leslie Jones. The role could use some manning up.

      1. so could the Cowboys d-line…

    5. Meryl Streep.

    6. Too bad Don Knotts isn’t still with us. He had experience playing heroes named after flying (sort of) critters.

        1. Limpets fly if you throw them hard enough.

        2. Mr Chicken?>
          That a boy, Luther!

    7. Donald Trump

    8. They need to find a gender confused minority since superhero movies are dominated by cis gendered white men.

      1. Too soon. I’m still irked after last weekemd’s nut punch where they revealed the Doctor will regenerate into a woman at the end of the Christmas special.

    9. Tell me: why is life even worth living?

      Are you not a river to your people – in various venues?

      Thou hast been affirmed.

      1. Q: Why didn’t the chicken cross the river?

        A: Because it was not the same river, and it was not the same chicken.

        1. If Crusty is a river to “his” people (across various internet venues) ….

          Go on.

          1. I guess the moral of the story is: Don’t cross Crusty, for he is vast and contains multitudes, and your feathers will get all soggy.

    10. Hitler?

    11. George Clooney?

    12. George Clooney?

  11. Several Canadian members of the travelling equestrian show Cavalia have been arrested in China for smoking weed.

    Those were just maple leaves.

  12. Justine Damond, the unarmed Australian woman shot by Minneapolis police Saturday, “did not have to die” according to Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said.

    Just as bad as coming out in blind support of your officers before all the facts are in.

    1. Damond’s family responded by saying that it is man’s nature that all of us must one day die.

      1. Valar morghulis

  13. Justine Damond, the unarmed Australian woman shot by Minneapolis police Saturday, “did not have to die” according to Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said.

    Too bad that Aussie chose to approach North America’s most dangerous predator as if we ain’t got shit on Australia’s drop-bears and black widow moths and carnivorous bunny rabbits. You go venturing into the wild, you best learn something about the local wildlife.

    1. Jerryskids,

      You seem darker in mentality than my memory recalls.

      1. You try to use humor as a defense mechanism but the world gets a little less funny every day. Plus my dog’s dying. He’s been slowly dying the last six months or so but lately he’s been picking up the pace. 15-year old boxer and I figure as long as he’s not suffering no need to hasten the night, maybe some morning I’ll wake up and he won’t. But at some point the body starts shutting down and I know he’s weak and he’s tired and it’s time to make sure he doesn’t start suffering.

        1. Jerryskids,

          I have been thinking and thinking whilst writing, deleting text, and re-writing for a while now in response to your comments.

          When my parents died I inherited their pet. She was ever an excellent companion to them and had become sort of a feline member of the family. When she lived with me I tried to look after her as much or better than my parents did. Evidently I performed well in this capacity since she lived another 5 years (attaining almost 19 years of age). However, as you seem to be experiencing with your dog, there was a deterioration in health. I agree with you here that to see this slow deterioration can not only be very tasking but alter one’s outlook.

          1. Odd. He wasn’t always my dog, I sort of inherited him along with the grandkids when my sister passed away 5 years ago, August 8.

            1. Odd indeed.

              You’ll read no more commentary from me in this regard, regardless of any goodwill I have for you and your canine friend. Take care.

        2. I own Boxers, my favorite breed. When my last boxer was about 12 he developed a degenerative myelopathy in his hind legs which basically stripped him, very slowly, of his ability to move freely on his own, eat unassisted or get outside to the bathroom without my help.

          Towards the end he started to pee on himself in his bed so I bought him this doggie diaper that he could wear overnight which was puffy and denim and made him look like he was wearing boomers. A couple of times he peed on the floor inside, something he hadn’t done since he was a puppy, and when I came to clean up after him he growled at me in a way that wasn’t aggressive but seemed to say, “Okay, Dad, I’m embarrassed. We need to figure something out.”

          The vet prescribed Metacam for any pain but I knew it would only be cosmetic and that I was going to have a make a decision soon. Dogs are funny that way. They won’t tell you directly but usually one way or another they’ll let you know when the time has come.

          Good luck.

          😉

  14. NY Times reporter accuses white women of racism on city sidewalks

    In a Wednesday essay titled “Was That Racist,” reporter Greg Howard singled out white women for forcing him “off the sidewalk completely” when walking toward him, not allowing a straight path.

    “In seven years of living and walking here, I’ve found that most people walk courteously ? but that white women, at least when I’m in their path, do not,” Howard writes.

    “Sometimes they’re buried in their phones. Other times, they’re in pairs and groups, and in conversation. But often, they’re looking ahead, through me, if not quite at me,” he continues.

    “When white women are in my path, they almost always continue straight, forcing me to one side without changing their course. This happens several times a day; and a couple of times a week, white women force me off the sidewalk completely. In these instances, when I’m standing in the street or in the dirt as a white woman strides past, broad-shouldered and blissful, I turn furious,” Howard said.

    Fucking white people, man.

    1. Can confirm, white women are the worst.

    2. Go fuck yourself Greg you unmanly jerk off.

    3. Maybe they’re just tourists.

    4. I turn furious

      After they’ve passed? That’s useful. Try just standing your ground. Seriously, just stop cold, in the middle of the sidewalk. If those bitches are as afraid of brushing up against a black man, as you seem to think, they won’t think twice about stepping into the street themselves.

      1. Did he properly signal before his furious turn? You can get ticketed for that.

        1. Tickets to the policeman’s other ball?

          1. Scarecrow Repair & Chippering,

            Was that a reference to a Monty Python skit?

            1. No, that was the other other ball.

      2. Grab their pussies. They like that.

    5. “Sometimes they’re buried in their phones. Other times, they’re in pairs and groups, and in conversation. But often, they’re looking ahead, through me, if not quite at me,” he continues.

      Most white women aren’t that impressed by guys grunting “MUH DICK” at them unless they’re in high school, or freshmen in college at the latest.

    6. Other times, they’re in pairs and groups, and in conversation.

      I don’t think it’s a race thing, but I do frequently encouter “packs” of women that have spread across the entire walkway/hallway and just expect everyone else to get out of their way.

      They are the worst.

      1. They travel in packs or two and three, with their itsy-bitsy doggies and their teeny-weeny tees.

    7. I saw that NYT news blip today. I’ve always said the minute the runaway ID politics locomotive comes screeching to a halt will be when middle class, liberal American white women start getting thrown on the tracks by the other ID groups. ID politics is a zero sum game no matter which locomotive you’re riding. It isn’t going to be pretty.

    8. Get some revenge. Promise to use lube when you go anal on them, but go in dry.

    9. Goddamn honkeys!

    10. The dumbest part of this is that this phenomenon was described in REVERSE in the huffington post as “manslamming”: the idea that men won’t allow women room on the sidewalk. So isn’t this just an example that this was a particularly ‘woke’ group of women taking their sidewalks back from evil men? Or is it ‘white-supremacy’ because the white ladies forced the black man to walk in the gutter?

      I could seriously imagine a huffpo reporter seeing a group of white women walk past and force a black man out into the street then be split apart by a white man 5 seconds later and think “great! I can write TWO articles today!”

      It’s almost like this entire ideology is based on people’s feeling and someone jumping to the worst conclusions they can think about people’s motivations. They see race/gender based racism/sexism everywhere because they are racist/sexist or at very least their ideology is. And they have no problem with power structures oppressing people they just want to change the order of the cards so the deck is unfairly stacked toward them instead of against them.

  15. The BBC reports on Rob Spence, a filmmaker with one human eye and one robot eye!

    Soon to be banned like Google Glass.

    1. Calling it a robot eye makes it sound like it has volition of its own, separate from Spence.

  16. Cop accused of sex with teen cadet is a ‘scapegoat’: attorney

    Robert Cain, a 10-year LAPD veteran, was charged late Thursday with two counts each of oral copulation of a person under the age of 16, lewd acts upon a child and unlawful sexual intercourse, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Friday.

    Cain, 31, who befriended the girl while she worked as a Los Angeles police cadet, allegedly sexually assaulted her during three separate incidents at three different locations, according to Deputy District Attorney David Reinert

    Always looking for a fall guy. I mean, he definitely diddled the dickens out of that girl, but still.

    1. ’cause the badge was gonna turn on the high school sophomore?

      also, the fuck is a “police cadet under the age of 16”? they have those?

      1. http://www.lapdcadets.com/about/

        They apparently have a children’s program in LA:

        The Cadet Program is designed to offer youth an opportunity to develop skills that will help them throughout their lives, while working with one of the finest law enforcement agencies in the country. The Program is offered at each of the 21 community police stations across the city, as well as at seven specialized divisions.

        1. Further proving that every organization with a modicum of power has a youth initiative that boils down to unspeakable things happening behind closed doors.

          1. Like the home of Seattle’s mayor with his foster sons?

        2. >>>one of the finest law enforcement agencies in the country

          cute.

          1. Graduates of the academy perform, on average, two standard deviations above normal at yelling stop resisting while beating in a man’s head with a baton.

            Neat

            1. >>>[Under]Graduates of the academy perform, on average, two…

              oral copulations per week on superior officers

        3. “The Cadet Program is designed to offer youth an opportunity to develop skills that will help them throughout their lives”

          well you have to admit that in this case…

      2. Yes, a male buddy of mine did shit like this when he was a teen. Local PD lets them do ride alongs and there are regional events for cadets to go to and do for shooting competitions and pseudo cop training.

        1. shut my mouth. had no idea. apologies if this posts 2x.

    2. “Oral copulation” just sounds so much dirtier than “make fuck with oral cavity.” Disgusting on the authors part.

      1. Did he say “making fuck”?

        1. Berzerker!!!!!!!!

  17. Roaming monkey attacks teen

    – A teen and her grandfather say they were attacked by a monkey roaming the streets.

    The 16-year-old was a passenger in the front seat of her grandfather’s truck on Thursday when it happened.

    The teen said they stopped and she rolled down the window to take a picture of the monkey.

    That’s when they said it leapt onto the truck and attacked her.

    Her mistake: making eye contact. Never try to establish dominance with a roaming monkey.

    1. “EYE CONTACT, NO EYE CONTACT NOT MATTER TO STEVE SMITH!”

      1. STEVE SMITH JUST WANT TO BE LOVED

  18. All this Russia/Trump stuff is such a nothing burger.

    1. Glad to see you admit it. Now let’s focus on criticizing Trump for the actual shit he does and supports.

      1. Haha good one

        Trump could murder 1000 civilians in the ME and then make a transphobic comment the same day and it’s obvious what would garner more outrage from the left

  19. Sean Spicer has resigned as White House press secretary.

    Way to ruin the next season of SNL. Thanks Sean. *sad*

    1. he ruined *this* season of SNL

    2. Don’t worry. The cast of SNL will find a way to ruin the next season all on their own.

  20. Reuters takes down live feed on Spicer home after blowback

    Reuters set up a camera outside the home of former White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s hours after his resignation, drawing rare bipartisan condemnation on social media.

    The news agency decided to take down the feed later on Friday

    Turning government workers into celebrities turns you into a celebrity reporters. Swell job!

    1. Worse than all the fake news is the true news they inflict upon others.

  21. The Fox-Newsification of the White House

    On Friday, news broke that Spicer was resigning from his job?reportedly in protest over Trump’s decision to bring on Anthony Scaramucci, a Fox News soundbite-slinger and hedge-fund manager, to run White House communications.

    Spicer’s fall and Scaramuccci’s rise are the latest?and perhaps most significant?signs that the Trump White House has abandoned whatever vision it once had of trying to shape press coverage through diplomacy and dealmaking, and has chosen instead to go all in with its made-for-cable-news culture war against the Fourth Estate.

    At least it will be somewhat entertaining.

    1. Huh?

      I’m sorry. I must’ve missed that nanosecond when Trump was trying to Shape press coverage through diplomacy and dealmaking.

    2. Except it’s too many dudes. Is that Sanders Huckabee gal showing some leg, at least?

      1. Or something low cut? Maybe a tight sweater and a push-up bra?

  22. The Minneapolis police chief and mayor are in a tight fucking bind here. They have been salivating at the prospect of bringing down a cop for blowing away unarmed citizens walking around in their PJs, but this time it was a Somali cop. They will prostrate themselves before the media to protect office Noor and see that charges are never brought against him, while at their cocktail parties they will lament the fact that it wasn’t a white cop who pulled the trigger.

    1. Exactly what makes you think the chief and mayor are salivating to put away cops?

      I have to say it’s funny, elsewhere on the Internet I’m reading a bunch of comments alleging that this guy is getting thrown under the bus because he’s black/Muslim and shot a white woman, but the opposite theory evidently exists as well.

      1. What do people think counts as throwing him under the bus? Because that clearly is not happening. I guess maybe not wholeheartedly buying his story and going scorched earth on his detractors?

        1. Basically. The fact that there isn’t a quick full-throated defense like there usually is. To be fair, I’m not sure that’s about race than it is about the fact that this is an international incident and that thus far there doesn’t seem to be even one of the usual fig leafs (the victim was armed, attacked the officer, resisting, didn’t listen to commands, etc.) to hide behind.

          1. Hey, there was a loud noise in the dark. Cop shit his pants and wanted to go home safe and sound.

    2. I think it’s glorious. You have an white Australian woman, whose home country has some pretty strict laws on private gun ownership and whose citizens believe that self-defense is not a legitimate reason to own a firearm, who was killed by a Somali cop–a class that the left waffles back and forth on whether they should be armed themselves, depending on who the audience is. The fact that the cop is Somalian is a nice little bonus of cognitive dissonance.

  23. Justine Damond, the unarmed Australian woman shot by Minneapolis police Saturday, “did not have to die” according to Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said.

    I hope some youth shatters Janee Harteau’s jaw during a round of that knockout game the kids love to play.

  24. These Americans Hated the Health Law. Until the Idea of Repeal Sank In.

    Favorite part:

    “I can’t even remember why I opposed it,” said Patrick Murphy, who owns Bagel Barrel, on a quaint and bustling street near Mr. Brahin’s law office here in Doylestown.

    You’re not alone, Mr. Murphy. You’re not alone.

    1. I’m supposed to care what idiots think?

    2. He hated it because he was worried his health insurance was going to get real expensive – which it did, except the money he saved by cutting employee benefits and dumping employees into the exchanges where they can pay a small fortune to get a worthless plan exceeded the cost of his personal insurance.

      1. Boom

    3. “I can’t even remember why I opposed it,” said Patrick Murphy, who owns Bagel Barrel, on a quaint and bustling street near Mr. Brahin’s law office here in Doylestown.”

      Yeah, as soon as there was an interviewer around, he forgot all about the way his premiums tripled.

      1. Asuuming this interview even happened.

    4. “You’re not alone, Mr. Murphy. You’re not alone.”

      So were we paying your insurance along with your mortgage, you slimy parasite?

      1. No, I get my insurance from my employer. I was assured by Sean Hannity et.al. Back in 2010 that this would not be possible, but here I am.

        You’re getting Medicare, right slimy parasite?

        1. Oh, AmSock! If you didn’t exist, we’d have to invent you. And really, none of us want the blame.

        2. Robespierre Josef Stalin|7.21.17 @ 6:03PM|#
          “No, I get my insurance from my employer. I was assured by Sean Hannity et.al. Back in 2010 that this would not be possible, but here I am.”

          Right, as if any employer would have anything to do with you at all.

        3. You get that you’re probably the only one here that watches Hannity, right?

          1. I can’t say for certain, but I’d also guess his claim that Hannity made any such comment is pure bullshit. Most of what commie-kid posts here is, so let’s go with the odds.

        4. And as a self employed person I got kicked off my plan and offered a shittier one at over twice the price.

  25. I have to say the Huckleberry Sanders woman has a certain disarming charm to her. Reminds me of some cousins I have who live out in the woods.

    1. I assume they moved there to get away from you.

    2. Tony it’s funny how your kind see themselves as somehow superior to conservatives and libertarians, when it’s proven that we’re smarter, better educated, and just generally superior to progressivekind.

      You’re a weak little man with a tiny mind and stunted dreams Tony.

      1. And you know that because you read it on the website of some fatass inbred lunatic who hears voices, yes?

        1. I don’t know if Noah Carl, PhD, Oxford sociologist is a fatass but I’m pretty sure he’s not inbred.

          Tony’s a science denier, what else is new.

          I mean, Tony, the guy has a PhD (where’d you get your PhD?) and has a faculty position at a prestigious university; by prog standards doesn’t that mean you should be sucking his dick?

  26. This guy needs his own cult

  27. “We’re sorry our 80 IQ virtue signaling, third-world hire murdered your daughter.”

    Too bad it couldn’t have been some open borders fuck that suffered some consequences.

    1. You sound like some cosmo commie cuck-a-schmuck at a cocktail party. Sad!

      Maybe you should really make your voice heard by cancelling your subscription, and making your own libertarian website, and never ever returning, except for occasionally engaging in the political equivalent of drunk-texting your ex.

      1. We live in a world of borders. It’s idiotic to pretend otherwise, and we’ve seen the horrific results of doing so. Troy is right.

        Now apologize.

  28. Justine Damond, the unarmed Australian woman shot by Minneapolis police Saturday, “did not have to die” according to Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said. Mayor Betsy Hodges has made similar statements

    Serious question: Are these “statements” some kind of woman-talk?

    To me they are ridiculous and insensitive.

    1. They were originally going to go with “Yeah, we shot that bitch, what are you gonna do about it?” Got nixed by some pussy in legal.

      1. He was from Somalia, which as we all know is Libertarian Paradise, so it was obviously all part of some stealth Kochopus conspiracy to undermine our democracy. Nancy MacLean has been appointed as a special prosecutor.

        1. Jo from Facts of Life?

          1. Child stardom does sad things to people.

            1. Adult stardom isn’t helpful to mental health either; see G. Clooney, S. Penn for examples.

  29. Update from Minneapolis: Chief Harteau tenders her resignation. Too much bragging over the “good work” she has done in her resignation letter, I think.

  30. When the going gets tough…quit.

  31. At what point does Trump wise up to the fact that all his problems go away the second he announces he’s leaving the GOP and joining the Democrats? Everybody would be happier, not least the GOP who can go back to being the loyal opposition, endlessly grousing about how their plans would be so much better without actually having to produce any plans. Trump could go ahead and start holding business meetings in the Oval Office, admission ticket pricing available on request, and you wouldn’t hear a peep out of the media. Trump’s supporters are going to applaud his genius 8th-level wizard skills and they’re all on the Free Shit bandwagon anyways, and the Dems don’t give a crap as long as they’re in power. Admit it, Donald, you’re a big-government Democrat and you’ve always been one – embrace the dark side and it’ll all be over.

    1. 8th? Trump is at least 11th level!

  32. Two Canadians remain in prison in China, however both the Canadian government . . . are working to get them released.

    Why? I mean, weed is illegal in Canada too. Its illegal because its bad. So why not leave them to rot in a Chinese prison for doing something bad. After all, they hurt the Chinese *and* Canadians by using weed.

  33. Pretty doubtful anyone here is not aware of the Venezuelan general strike, and Maduro’s claims that everybody is ignoring it, but coincidentally all the buses broke down and all the merchants lost the keys to the front doors.
    Anyhow, it was news to me, but rely on Trump to, well, Trump the issue:

    “on Monday, Donald Trump threatened to take economic actions if Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro moves forward with plans to create a Constituent Assembly in a July 30 vote.”
    MSN

    Great! Maduro needs a villain to blame, and Trump steps up the plate and knocks one into his glove!

    1. Great! Maduro needs a villain to blame, and Trump steps up the plate and knocks one into his glove!

      Must be one of those “memetic kill shots” I’m told he’s so good at.

  34. WHY ARE WE INVESTIGATING DEAR LEADER? HE HASN’T DONE ANYTHING WRONG. WHAT WE REALLY NEED IS HOUSE COMMITTEE INVESTIGATION INTO HILLARY CLINTON AND HER EMAILZ #145. WHAT A JOKE THIS CONGRESS IS!

    1. Robespierre Josef Stalin|7.21.17 @ 9:42PM|#
      “WHY ARE WE INVESTIGATING DEAR LEADER?”
      Good question, but he’s your “dear leader, not mine.

      “HE HASN’T DONE ANYTHING WRONG.”
      That investigation is now over 7 months long and the “details’ never seem to appear.
      Pretty sure he’s really guilty of making slimy lefties like you shit your pants.

    2. AmSoc, Sessions needs to spend every moment on the job putting demcorats in prison. Not fucking around going after legal pot. There are so many obvupiously guilty democrats out there right now that he could do end two Trump terms just going after the low hanging fruit. Clintons, Obama, Lerner, Holder, Lynch, Wasserbeast, just to name a few. It even looks like Bernie and his wife had their hands in the cookie jar at that college.

      Hell, I’ll bet if they looked into you and Tony they could find some legit reasons to lock you guys up for at least 20 years. But I would prefer they focus on the big ticket shitbags.

      1. AmSoc, Sessions needs to spend every moment on the job putting demcorats in prison. Not fucking around going after legal pot.

        And anybody who seriously believed that would happen deserves to feel foolish, for smoking it all without offering the rest of us any.

  36. “Trump’s lawyers explore his power to grant pardons to family, aides”
    http://www.sfgate.com/news/art…..304008.php

    Commie-kid wets his pants, details promised soon, fast forward to October when Trump is ‘investigated’ for eating fired chicken with a knife and fork!!!!!!!!

    1. Trump is ‘investigated’ for eating fired chicken with a knife and fork!!!!!!!!

      He fired the chicken for gross incompetence at road-crossing.

  37. Hey reasonoids, I need your help.
    I know we are all mostly free range kids supporters….

    I have a 13yo cousin who’s mom is pretty much the opposite of that, never lets him leave the house, he can’t have a bike, etc. and he’s a good kid, straight A’s, concert master in band, lives in a good area, etc. people complain that kids don’t want to go outside etc, but he wants to and can’t.

    I really feel bad for him, not sure what to do. He really feels like Quasimodo from the hunchback of notre damn. Can’t ever leave the house to go biking around or hang with his friends or anything. No sinlongs so it’s just him putzing around the house playing video games

    1. is there a rec center or something he can get to after school (when school starts)?
      he could go year round, but being out of the house means he might be able to stay out longer.

    2. 13? Doesn’t he just spend all his free time masturbating?

    3. That sucks. I wish you the best of luck with the situation, but I’m not a parent so I wouldn’t know what advice to give.

    4. Any youth groups he can get involved with? Boy Scouts, something like that? Maybe join a sports team?

    1. “I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Democracy simply doesn’t work.”

    2. Democracy is nice, but limited government is the only thing that’s essential.

  38. I don’t understand what is going on in this world.
