  1. Other countries warn tourists going to America about our mass shootings.

    And massive wall in the making.

    1. Hello.

      That’s some haircut Rocket Man is sporting there.

    2. What’s funny is, when not counting gang-related shootings, Europe has been seeing far more acts of random public violence than America, lately. Don’t forget that America has 330,000,000 people, far more than any European country.

      1. Citation needed.

        1. The Party of Science denies multiple studies and tables upon tables of statistics?!

          Whodathunk…

          1. Just waiting to see them.

        2. If you follow Europe (I do Italy and France) this is an ‘open secret’.

          1. And you would propose that we permit all these random attackers to have semi-automatic weapons?

            1. Are you proposing to Rufus? Pretty sure he already has all da bitches he wants. #Canadianbigpimping

              1. Nonsense. Canadians don’t have genitals.

            2. They already have them.

              http://www.independent.co.uk/n…..86621.html

            3. Yes. That’s *exactly* what I propose.

              I’m also going to marry a carrot.

            4. Don’t seem to have been able to stop them from getting them so . . .

              Why not let the rest of the people be able to defend themselves?

            5. shall we also permit them to have any of the other constitutional rights while we’re at it?

              1. Q. How many rightwing GOOBERS think the right to bear arms is absolute?

                A. Roughly as many who believe Trump and O’Reilly are NOT serial sex abusers.

                NO RIGHTS CAN POSSIBLY BE ABSOLUTE … BECAUSE EACH IS ABSOLUTE … THUS PRECISELY CO-EQUAL …. LEARN WHAT UNALIENABLE MEANS.

                Even Justice Scalia said you’re bat-shIt crazy!!

                His Heller ruling

                “We also recognize another important limitation on the right to keep and carry arms. ‘Miller’ said, as we have explained, that the sorts of weapons protected were those ‘in common use at the time.‘ 307 U.S., at 179, 59 S.Ct. 816. We think that limitation is fairly supported by the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of ‘dangerous and unusual weapons.'”

                …. as we have said, the conception of the militia at the time of the Second Amendment’s ratification was the body of all citizens capable of military service, who would bring the sorts of lawful weapons that they possessed at home to militia duty….. But the fact that modern developments have limited the degree of fit between the prefatory clause and the protected right cannot change our interpretation of the right.

                Unless, of course, a bellowing Gomer says otherwise,

                P.S. Are gun righst superior to the Right to Life? OOOPS!

                (walks away laughing)

                .

        3. Citation needed.

          He heard it on redneck AM radio.

      2. What happens if you remove Europe’s largest source of public violence?

        1. The Marshall Plan?

          1. No idea. I don’t even know what it is. Real question, not an attempt at a rebuttal. Curious how it compares if you remove their outliers as well.

        2. Workers not working?

          1. Workers not working being told they won’t be paid anymore for not working.

        3. Soccer? I thought the rules were it’s always Hitler…

        4. you lose every source of shish kabob.

          so you lose a bunch of violence and rape, but you lose skewered meat and we can’t have that

      3. Doesn’t Norway still hold the record for the worst mass shooting ever?

  2. The fallout from Trump’s comments to the family of a fallen solider continues.

    So we’re officially off the NFL now?

    1. We’re just preparing for the next game.

    2. Even GREATER bullshit from the psycho White House!
      https://reason.com/blog/2017/10…..nt_7006243

      Will this undeniable proof be reported by the home of Fake News – Fox? (lol)

  3. Trump/Fallen Solider Scandal Continues

    I expected nothing less.

    1. The Super-conducting Super Solider was always controversial.

      1. And it was all jammed up Kelly’s ass! And Trump’s. Again.

        https://reason.com/blog/2017/10…..nt_7006243

  4. North Korea talks behind the United States’ back in letter to Australia.

    HATE ‘EM WOULDN’T WANNA DATE ‘EM

  5. http://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/v…..jw-marvel/

    This might be the saddest thing I have ever seen. Hey let’s beat the SJWs by becoming just like them only douchier.

    1. Vox Day sucks anyway. As well as being an obnoxious pun of a name.

      1. The only thing that sucks more are his fanboys

        1. Fanboys are the worst part of everything.

    2. That’s the only way to win, John.

      It’s akin to how the Left Wing must feel the pain of employment laws, the “woke” crowds’ baying of racism at everything that moves, and the sexual “harassment” jihad.

      we’re done with the clean fighting, John.

      1. But you are a fucking racist. You just said so downthread. You don’t get to complain about racism police when you yourself are guilty of being a fucking racist.

        1. please yes scream racist more.

          I LOVE IT.

          call me a racist over and over again. It’s fantastic. Start doing it to everyday Americans, you lunatic.

          CRY RACIST AND LET SLIP THE HOGS OF WAR

        2. just fyi nothing I said was racist. I said the Congresswoman acted like an awful stereotype.

          if it’s racist to say DON’T act like a stereotype then you’re just dumb.

          but please please please keep calling me racist.

          1. So are you saying if I stop calling you a racist you’ll consider giving actual thought to policies instead of whining about being called a name?

            1. I’m not whining! I want you to keep going.

              your whole party looks like Evergreen College writ large, and I want you to keep it up.

              1. Jesus, dude, you’ve been here long enough to know Tony isn’t real.

              2. I actually agree with you on that. But wouldn’t it be nice if more people recognized that all you rightwing morons ever do is cry and moan about how victimized you are, and that you are the actual special snowflakes by a factor of a billion?

                Alas, Reagan had that horse, and the GOP is still riding that fucker.

                1. When you agree with someone that you think is a racist, you’re a racist.

          2. ABSOLUTE, UNDENIABLE PROOF … Brakeless MAGA Train is EAGER to swallow and promote Trumpian bullshit! He’d even defend Trump from public murder (per Trumps own insult)

            https://reason.com/blog/2017/10…..nt_7006243

            Left-Right = Zero

      2. I am all for fighting. Just do it better than this. The way you fight is by telling the left to fuck off and kicking politics out of life not becoming the same kind of politics obsessed idiot they are

        1. nope, because kicking politics out of life is not going to happen. that genie is not going back in the bottle.

          1. Don’t try so hard. Just write a comic book where a gay or a tranny is the villain. Make it good and let losers like Tony scream about it.

            1. Rightwingers are fucking morons and that’s why they can’t do art or humor well, ever. That and the giant conspiracy against them, of course.

              1. Right wingers did most of the great art in history. No one does great art today. Sorry Tony but a guy wearing assless chaps having a gerbil shoves uo his ass is just a guy having a gerbil shoves up his ass. It’s not art despite what you tell yourself

                1. You’re a strange little man.

                2. I don’t know. What’s the gerbil wearing?

                  1. John’s pussy ring.

              2. +1 Dennis Miller.

          2. Well, it definitely won’t happen with that attitude.

        2. Except cake bakers. They should make everything about politics. And anyone else whose political agenda is to shit on minorities. But only them.

          1. uhh who politicized cake bakers in the first place?

            the Gay Agenda was never about marriage. it was about punishment; it was about retribution. it was about letting those yokels EAT IT and SERVE ME you bigots!

            we know that already.

            1. Well don’t you idiots kind of deserve it?

              1. “live by the sword, die by the sword”

                thank you for your tacit admission. you know the Democrats hate you now, right? you’re not one of their favored minorities anymore. they love transmissions and “POCs” more than they love you, Tony. you’re a cisgendered white male shitlord. you just don’t know it yet.

                1. Lectures on being used like a cheap whore and discarded after election day from a fucking supporter of Republicans. Ha!

          2. Yes Tony will always be free to hate your guts. It is one of the things that bring us together

      3. Lol. At least you are done pretending you are any different from the left.

        1. lol the Left wants you dead or in a re-education camp.

          the Left wants Evergreen College on a national scale.

          you know the only place libertarian politics have a chance is in a right-leaning nation. I’d wager 90+% of libertarians used to be Republicans.

          I dream of a country where the left is libertarians and the Right is the Right. there’s no room for Communists; they get to take the Rotary Pinochet Express.

          1. And you seem to want the left dead or in a reeducation camp. You literally just called for the murder of communists.

            1. it’s rhetorical.

              but being a Communist is illegal, you know.

              anyway, Marxists are dedicated to fostering division in our society and destroying it. they are existential threats.

              I want the Left to not exist anymore. you know as well as I do the only hope for anything libertarianish is in a Right Wing country.

              1. It’s an inherent contradiction calling for a libertarian society through crushing of dissent.

                1. But it is kind of the only way.

              2. being a Communist is illegal

                What? Acting as an agent for a communist country might be, but holding those particular political and economic beliefs isn’t.

                1. nope. Communist Control Act of 1954.

                  Communists openly call for the overthrow of the United States Government. 18 USC 2385.

                  1. That sounds like one of those weird laws no one bothered to enforce then. I can’t imagine that wouldn’t immediately be put down as a free speech violation.

                    1. The MAGA train has no truck with such technicalities and loopholes.
                      No small number of libertarians and right wingers violate that as well. And it’s a pretty fucking blatant violation of the first amendment and the founding principles of the country.

                  2. The Brakeless MAGA Train
                    Communists openly call for the overthrow of the United States Government.

                    ANOTHER mindless bot, spewing tribal bullshit from your puppetmaster.
                    THIS is why a growing majority of Americans has NO loyalty to EITHER tribe of goobers,
                    Totally devoid of shame. Progtards vs. Contards.

                    1. “Fundamentally transform America”
                      Who said that?

              3. you know as well as I do the only hope for anything libertarianish is in a Right Wing country.

                False.

                The only difference between a Right Wing and a Left Wing country is which tiny slivers of freedom will be allowed.

                  OMFG! A libertarian! In Reason’s comments!!
                  How did the conservatives and Paulistas allow such a thing?

            2. You literally just called for the murder of communists.

              This is a controversial opinion how?

              1. This is a controversial opinion how?

                You wouldn’t grasp why.

          2. Is MAGA Train a brainless tribal shill?

            you know the only place libertarian politics have a chance is in a right-leaning nation.

            Bend over, as I jam the truth up yourass.
            And twist.

            Readfy?

            Over 60% of Americans would self-describe as “fiscally conservative and socially liberal.” Per a major pollster (Zogby), commissioned by the Cato Institute

            NOW THE TWISTING!
            Scroll down prox 2/3 to the bold subheader, How Libertarian see themselves.
            It gets even worse for you.

            I’d wager 90+% of libertarians used to be Republicans.

            BEND OVER AGAIN!
            90% is too high. But WHY did they quit, Homer? The religious right …. which was attacked by BOTH Goldwater and Reagan, most severely by Goldwater, who famously said that all good Christians should kick Jerry Falwell in the ass! … and that the Moral Majority was a major threat to his party.
            Is THAT what you meant?

      4. Isn’t that just the Alinsky principle? Force them to live by their own rules?

        1. we tried it the clean way. it didn’t work.

  6. Steve Mnuchin says pass a tax bill OR ELSE.

    If the market pinned its hopes on the GOP doing something, it deserves to tank.

    1. Or else what? His wife will take a few more jet trips at our expense?

  7. “North Korea talks behind the United States’ back in letter to Australia.”

    If 4th graders ran the world, would it look any different?

    1. Less sexual harrassment out of fear of rampant cootie breakout.

      1. If 4th graders ran the world, I’d give it a week until nuclear holocaust.

        1. It would probably be for a better reason then inevitable real nuclear holocaust. Probably about lack of chocolate milk or something.

  8. Facing persistent questions from reporters, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded that John Kelly’s four-decade career in the Marine Corps makes him beyond reproach.

    “He answers to a Higher Power.”

    1. You know who else had a 40-year military career?

      1. Helmut Von Moltke?

      2. Georgie Jessel?

    2. (laughing) Kelly; has been outed as a bulshitter … just as shameful as Trump … by UNDENIABLE PROOF!

  10. RE: Fallen Soldier commentary.

    This is a war hero and Gold Star father against an idiot with a freezer-temperature IQ and who wears the hat from Arby’s.

    It’s not even a contest. It’s like Godzilla vs. Bambi.

    1. she also didn’t do her race any credit, as she acted exactly as crass and ridiculous as the worst stereotype.

    2. The war hero is a big fat liar, and there’s video proof.

      1. *eyeroll*

        no one cares. you guys are out of credibility because you keep promising you’ll come up with something earthshattering and you never do.

        you’ve been tuned out.

        1. Lectures on credibility from a Trump leg humper.

          1. the Left hates facts. your hero is someone who is marginally retarded wearing a cowboy hat and cackling about telling her parents how she’s going to be on the news!

            you stand no chance.

            1. Lectures on facts from the pussy grabber’s poodle.

          Left – Right = Zero

          (Bellowing Blowhards Be Blustery)

    3. “Godzilla vs. Bambi.”

      Great movie. I’ve seen it twice.

      1. my aunt and uncle were watching me one day. I was about eight. They told me they had a great movie for me to watch. they got me popcorn and blankets and darkened the room and put that video in. I was traumatized in a good way.

        1. I was traumatized in a good way.

          But enough about how your Uncle touched you, what about the movie?

          1. Getting molested while watching a deer and a lizard wrestle fundamentally altered my sexuality.

            1. wait this isn’t a universal thing?!

              1. Maybe. Because I was talking about myself.

      2. The sequel was better.

  11. Mnuchin also gave an “absolute guarantee” that Trump would sign a major tax bill by the end of the year.

    “The Secretary clearly said “Absolut guarantee”, referring to his jocular bets in which he wagers a bottle of vodka.”

  12. Five so-called links, one with only seven words, AND NO ALT-TEXT.

    Do they even fucking pay you to do this, Christian B.?

    If so, you are ripping them off …

    1. I think no one ever told him his internship was over and he never complained so they just keep letting it happen.

      1. +1 Milton Waddams

        1. That is a purty shade of red on your stapler, there, Christian …

  13. Kelly saving Trump from himself isn’t the same as saving the country from Trump.

    1. it’s probably time to accept the results of the election, “Resistance Fighter” (lol are you serious guys)

      1. Lectures on seriousness from a fucking Trump bootlicker? Do you ever watch what he says and does?

        1. The election is still over, Anthony.

          1. His name is actually short for Tonionio

          2. The investigation isn’t.

            1. “In Which the Gang Debunks a Dossier”

              1. Which was the last president you bent so far over backward to defend?

                1. Be thankful that Trump accepted the election results.
                  Speaking of which, how many Electors did you contact after the election?

                  1. Electors? Where he won by 80,000 votes … in three states combined?
                    With a little help from Putin.

                    Don’t forget nearly 10 million voted against him. And he got the most ANTI votes ever (anti-Hillary NOT pro-Trump) And got the GOP nomination with only 37% of the Republican vote.

                    Is that what you meant?

                    1. Yes, Electors were contacted to try to change their vote. By people who said it would be a threat to our democracy if Trump didn’t accept the election results.
                      Maybe Putin is under your bed. Better go check.

                    2. Electors were contacted to try to change their vote.

                      Totally irrelevant! Even more useless than your original!!!

                      Trump throws HISSY FITS when the facts ruin his narrative. OMG, so do you!

                      Maybe Putin is under your bed. Better go check.

                      Okay, now that I’ve finished ridiculing you …..

                      (boldface and tone in response to aggression and cyber-bullying by a triggered snowflake.)

      1. They really never get old do they?

        1. The sick thing is, that’s all there is to you. You don’t care about any policies or the misery and death of human beings caused by the hyper-incompetent man-baby administration. You care about giving the nerds a wedgie. You’re a bunch of fucking meat-headed retards, and you’re proud of it.

          1. I care lots about the victims of the Obama Administration. That is why I voted for Trump silly.

            1. One of these days you’re going to be confined to a hospital room or something and FOX News won’t be available, and you’re going to feel really embarrassed for yourself when you realize what a fucking moron it made you.

              1. If it’s up to people like you and we end up with socialism, sure. That is why I am not a Democrat

                1. You’re not a Democrat because some former frat rapist on TV tells you how to think.

                  1. Look, don’t talk about Bill Clinton like that man. It’s not nice.

          2. Which stage of grief is this?

            1. He’s gonna tell us about his childhood rape fantasies next.

                1. Tony has been in that stage for 99 & 44/100ths of his life …

            2. Viewers are urged to pay close attention to what the Democrat and Republican infiltrators are saying about each other, and remember that next opportunity you get to cast a law-changing spoiler vote against both looter parties.

  14. “The fallout from Trump’s comments to the family of a fallen solider continues.”

    MSM throws more spaghetti at the wall, hope it sticks this time.

    1. (sneer) ANOTHER brainwashed puppet, dancing on Trump’s string!l.
      YOU LOSE, SUCKER! https://reason.com/blog/2017/10…..nt_7006243

  15. “Active shooter incidents occur from time to time in the United States.”

    “Unlike any other place on the planet.”

    1. “Active” shooter. What other kind is there?

      1. More and more these damn millenials are becoming inactive shooters. And we wonder why obesity rates are so high?

      2. “Passive shooters” are when the gun made them do it.

        1. Or cops when they use the passive voice to describe their murderous fuckups. “The gun was discharged, shots were fired, blah, blah”

          1. I suspect that is the passive shooter definition, unfortunately, if there even is a definition at all. (Which I doubt)

    2. Right, nothing like that ever happens in France, for example.

  16. The fallout from Trump’s comments to the family of a fallen solider continues.

    Obviously the solution is for Trump to tweet his comments to the families of fallen soldiers.

    1. “His death is sad, but his sacrifice will help #MakeAmericaGreatAgain – let’s kill some bad guys in his honor. GO USA!”

    2. I’ll vomit back up what I said earlier today, because as we can all tell I hate thought. Listened to them talk about this for 25 minutes on the radio today, no comment or question about why we are in Niger. The reaction of everyone I know when they heard those soldiers deaths was, “We’re in Niger?” If that’s not a sign to at least talk about it I don’t know what is.

      1. Why argue about a bipartisan decision, when the *real* issue is this horrible, horrible man’s clear unfitness for office!

      2. ISIS is imploding and unemployment claims are the lowest they have been since 1973. The media needed something else to talk about. That is all that is going on here.

        1. Damn, Trump got all that accomplished and manages to find time to tweet about his hurt feelings every single day?

          1. He does all these things and still has time to troll people like you. Is there anything he cannot do?

            1. Touch his toes.
              Make a conversation about someone else.
              Read.
              Digest food properly.
              Make an honest profit.
              Get anything passed through a Republican congress.
              Win the genetic lottery.
              Console a grieving widow without fucking it up.

              1. But he can beat Hillary. And that is what matters

                1. Not without his boyfriend’s help. And certainly not with a majority of actual human votes. Sad.

                  1. Luton his Hillary’s boyfriend. She hooked him up with all that uranium. They have been an item ever since

                    1. Ever wonder what you’d be able to fill the space in your brain with that’s currently occupied by debunked rightwing horseshit?

                    2. Debunked??? Comrade, I read the Daily Worker religiously and I still did not know that! So all those donations to the CGI from parties involved in the Rosatom uranium deal were on the up-and-up? And Bill’s half-million speaking fee from the bank involved in the deal was just a coincidence?

                      I will report myself to an indoctrination camp to cure my lack of faith in our betters, but could you please, as a favor to a fellow traveler, CITE YOUR SOURCE? Please?

                      Fucking BULLY.
                      You demanded a source for something he never said.

                      THE THREAD IS ABOUT TRUMP … YOU PULLED A CLINTON ATTACK … OUT OF YOUR ASS … AND DEMANDED THAT HE PROVIDE A SOURCE.
                      Shame on you, thug.

                    8. If you’re going to bold fuck a long-dead thread’s corpse, at least try to read before responding. Tony responding to John’s uranium comment that that issue was “debunked rightwing [sic] horseshit” was what made me write my comment. As always, Tony did not contribute a source.

                      Don’t want to be taken for a thug, don’t use bold like one.

                      P.S. Where’s YOUR source, chump?

                      .

                    10. If Hillary Clinton can force 16 other government agencies to get in on her scam, shouldn’t we just give up and let her have the power she could so easily grab anyway?

        2. What do unemployment claims stand for these days? I remember during Obama they radically shifted what unemployment rate meant, and I haven’t kept up.

          1. These are new claims. It means very few people are losing their jobs. Amazing what not making war on the economy can do.

            1. Got it. Thanks. So this is a slowing in the rate of layoffs?

              1. It means the fewest number of people lost their jobs in any month since 1973

                1. And it’s all a result of the sheer majesty of Trump’s presence in the oval office. Sure as fuck isn’t a result of any policy, because he can’t get any of that passed.

                  1. No it is the result of Obama no longer being there.

                    1. So you’re saying a healthy capitalistic economy is dependent on a nuke-happy manchild with no self-control being president? Yay capitalism.

                    2. So you’re saying a healthy capitalistic economy is dependent on a nuke-happy manchild with no self-control being president?

                      No. He didn’t say that at all. He said the economy is doing better because Obama isn’t holding it down anymore.

                    3. What an odd endorsement of Harry Truman

                    4. No it is the result of Obama no longer being there.

                      ^ This.

                      Seems pretty undeniable, really.


                    5. No it is the result of Obama no longer being there.

                      Turns out if you depress the economy with executive orders, removing those orders stops repressing the economy.

                      Now the conversation needs to start up about how to stop someone like Obama, or Trump for that matter, from ever doing that again.

                      *crickets from both Republicans and Democrats*

                    6. This presumes they prefer the alternative. It must. Which means our economy depends on certain actors behaving like irrational lunatics. Which isn’t an endorsement for letting the markets run wild.

                  2. Maybe, and I would agree that over the short term it’s difficult to tie the economy to any one variable. That being said, his team has done a fair amount related to the regulatory state which is probably the major weight upon the economy and doesn’t consist of policy passing through Congress.

                    1. WHAT? He’s using Executive Orders– like he ridiculed Obame for … because he TOTALLY fucked up his entire legislative agenda … the ABSOLUTE biggest Presidential failure in over a half-century/

                      While shitting on our fallen heroes.
                      And lying enough to make Nixon look like Jesus Christ in comparison.

          2. Same BS. One administration lies, gets away with it, and the next one follows in its footsteps. We still have an anemic economy, which won’t get better without massive spending cuts. As it is, the debt is eventually going to crush us.

            1. The BS number is the unemployment rate. But the number of new claims is a real number and a very good sign for the economy. It is not a lie.

      3. It’s just too risky for them to put the word “Niger” on his teleprompter.

  17. “The possession of firearms and the frequency of violent crime are generally more prevalent in the U.S. than in Canada. But your family is infinitely more likely to die on the highway on the way there, or to be killed in hospital through medical malpractice if you happen to survive, so no worries.”

    Fixed it.

  18. Is anyone else just sort of fed up?

    1. Yep.
      And to top it off there’s no booze in the house šŸ™

      1. I’m listening to the latest 5th column. Jesus, Harvey Weinstein makes Roger Ailes look like a charming grandpa.

        1. I’ll save that the booze.

  19. Three right wing followers of Spencer arrested for shooting:

    “Just waiting to see them.”
    (regarding violence in Europe)

    Here, you idiot:
    “”But we are the only advanced country on Earth that sees this kind of mass violence erupt with this kind of frequency. It doesn’t happen in other advanced countries. It’s not even close. And as I’ve said before, somehow we’ve become numb to it and we start thinking that this is normal.” ?President Obama, announcing his new executive orders on guns, January 7, 2016 (Emphasis added.)
    This claim is simply not true. Between January 2009 and December 2015, the period that President Obama has been in office, there are 11 European countries with a higher frequency of these mass public shootings than the US, and 10 European countries with a higher rate of deaths from these attacks.”

    1. Quit shilling for gun control.

      1. Go fuck your daddy

    2. Obama was one gigantic logical fallacy.

  22. Well BEFORE Reason’s latest suckup …. an actual news video provides UNDENIABLE PROOF that Kelly lied about the black Congresswoman. Shamefully

    Florida News-Sentinel broke the story (with their old news video)Politifact has the best summary

    Many sources have confirmed that Kelly admitted Trump said as claimed. But he meant well! Hence, the Trump style personal assault.

    How much shame and humiliation must we suffer from this White House?
    Will Faux News report this? (lol)

    I now yield the floor to the same Trumpbots who would defend him of even a public murder. As he claimed about them.

    P.S. Trump said he has proof AGAIN … and FAILS to provide it AGAIN. One sick fuck.
    But …. Hillary’s email server …..

    1. Oh, FFS, Mike, get lost before you make more of an ass of yourself than you already have.

    2. I think you know it’s much more than Clinton’s end around of records retention laws and her national security breaches. But, it is possible for them both to be uniquely and similarly terrible.

      1. Of course! Left – Right = Zero

        (The Hillary comment was satire. Or one might assume it as ridicule)

        1. Satire? Here at Hit & Run???

          1. 1) I simply cannot sink to the level of this commentariat.
            2) You missed “ridicule” there?

            Left- Right = Zero

  23. “North Korea talks behind the United States’ back in letter to Australia.”
    From what information is currently available, it seems that the Korean population is being fed by either direct aid from those countries still offering it (few are), black-market trade with China, the true (if “magical” to the likes of idiots like Tony) increase in wealth as a result of (ignoring? allowing?) some of the population to engage in trade.
    Put simply, if the aid (hand-outs) and the illegal (and it is) trade were removed, mass famine would be the rapid result.
    Kim Il Sung admitted that use of the nukes was suicidal; most of those who report on NK suggest Jong Un is aware of that. But he was educated in Switzerland; he knows full well that if he yields to ‘reform’, the billions he and his henchmen have stashed in offshore countries will be confiscated, and his chances of surviving are pretty much nil.
    At this point, he has no alternative other than hubris.
    Given any sort of concern for the poor folks who have been victimized by the Kims, we don’t have many good options, either.

    1. As it happens, I had a discussion with a Volvo marketing guy in Munich several years back. We were vacationing, he was a attending a heavy-equipment trade show which was in town at the time; crowded restaurant, he and his wife shared our table. According to him, Volvo, under the direction of the Swedish government, was dealing with the Norks for any and all heavy equipment, which he justified (?) under the concept of ‘constructive engagement’. I’m guessing it has less to do with some SJW fantasies than the hope that Sweden might recover what most of us would call sunk costs:
      “North Korea now owes Sweden SEK 2.7 billion ? and hasn’t paid for 1,000 Volvos”

  24. Apparently “the fallout from Trump’s comments to the family of a fallen solider” is that henceforth we must always take care to insist that everyone who goes into the military is a brainless moron, incapable of making an informed decision as to their career choice, who was duped into joining despite having no idea what might be involved. Any claims to the contrary are blasphemy.

    1. I have not read what Trump said either by accident or research.
      Having dealt for nearly a year with TDS and the whiny losers who still don’t accept that the miserable hag deserved to lose to a random toad, when there is a headline about ‘what Trump said’, I don’t bother to read it.
      As was suggested when the press had the last R as a whipping boy: If Bush walked on water, the headline would read “Bush Can’t Swim”.
      So fuck those who find his offer of sympathy not acceptable. And fuck the press which seems to find the issue front page material.

      1. You really should pay attention to what he says and does. Maybe you’ll stop embarrassing yourself by defending that fat demented clown.

      3. He said that her husband knew what he was signing up for.

        1. Even Kelly admitted that — before he went psycho-liar on the black congresswoman.

    2. Apparently “the fallout from Trump’s comments to the family of a fallen solider” is that henceforth we must always take care to insist that everyone who goes into the military is a brainless moron

      UNFAIR!
      Kelly is a PROVEN crazy fucking liar, which is NOT typical of the military

      1. Dude this is a libertarian website, nobody’s defending Trump from his ridiculousness.

        Oh wait, literally everyone else here is doing that.

        1. Oh wait, literally everyone else here is doing that.

          You, too, suffer the egregious sin of tribal-themed exaggeration.

          1. There are two sides by design. Equating them serves only to absolve the worse actor, no matter how much worse it is.

            1. That’s as phony as saying Trump is an asshole but still better than Hillary,
              Or Obama is a DINO, but still better than Bush.

              And when both tribes have no clue that “only two sides” has been obsolete for nearly a half-century.
              But fight on! There are many more windmills to tilt!.

            2. Tony (n?e National Socialist) imagines this is Salon or the YAF website. Does anyone have an idea on how to explain “third party” or “non-looter” to the Strump-fixated sockpuppet?

      2. Michael usually has better sense than to try and referee a hissing match between a National Socialist altruist and an altruistic International Socialist. Both of them shout about people, not ideas. What does that tell us?

    3. There are statements that, while technically correct, are not appropriate to make when talking to a grieving mother.

  25. This place sounds like a barrel full of empty barrels.

  26. Gosh, religious conservative suicide berserkers run amok and kill half a hundred in U.S.-controlled Afghanistan. Can anyone explain by what standard this version of Reconstruction is successful?
