    Hello.

    And yet, all Trump did was send DACA to Congress and force them to, you know, do their fucking JOBS.

  • Crusty Juggler||

    When is this Trump fella gonna get a fair shake, that's what I want to know?

  • Sports Reporter Charles Manson||

    He's obviously doing fine, it's the public which needs a fair shake by knowing what's actually going on. And that need isn't served by the legacy media with their daily ration of "Trump's fault" and "Trump's a Nazi!"

  • Crusty Juggler||

    When is the media going to give Trump a fair shake?

  • Sports Reporter Charles Manson||

    Seriously?

    I guess that depends on which media. Some of them are fair, the "legacy media" and some allied outlets will be happy to give him a fair shake as soon as another Republican President is in office and they can get nostalgic about Responsible Republicans like Trump.

  • Crusty Juggler||

    No, not seriously. I think the media overreaction to everything he does is part of his strategy, because it just riles up his sycophantic, populist base, who thrive off the predictable media overreaction.

  • Sports Reporter Charles Manson||

    I have no doubt Trump has sycophants, but not all of his base can be put in that category, some of them simply think the other politicians are so bad that Trump starts looking good.

  • Citizen X - #6||

    Media overreaction also riles up the Democrats' base, so it's a win for everybody! You know, aside from people who want to be left alone to make sense of the world.

  • Crusty Juggler||

    Media overreaction also riles up the Democrats' base

    Yes - it's part of both their little game of, "I want to control you and steal your money." The Dems just have more prominent figures, while the Team Trump has people on Fox News and the Alex Jones' of the world.

    As an outsider looking in, what Obama did was take an action without proper consent of the people via the established channels as prescribed by law.

    And this is just my impression of observing eight years of that doofus-chooch, it wouldn't surprise me he knew acting unilaterally that way was probably illegal but assumed no one would dare challenge or even rescind his action. I wonder if Brad Smith would feel the same way about copyright laws. I doubt it.

    Obama cynically did it for votes because if he really cared he would have worked with Congress as is ethical, proper and legal.

    Of course, I could be misreading all this but it's just the 'maintain order' Canadian in me.

    I think Obama approaches the Constitution in the same manner as a good statistician approaches a data set: it can mean anything you want it to, given enough mental gymnastics.

    My guess is that Obama's legal team wrote lots of reports on how his executive action would be legal and ethical, and they were counting on public outcry to keep it in place after St. O ascended from office.

  • Unlabelable MJGreen||

    I watched the first season a year or so later, because people were still praising it and I was in a good mood.

    My favorite memory of that experience: Dunham directed the first few episodes. Halfway through episode 4 or 5, I thought to myself that this episode is much better directed than the others. Better use of the camera, better staging, better editing. Sure enough, it was the first episode directed by someone else.

    Death of NFL inevitable as middle class abandons the game

    Herrera cares about the lessons the game can teach. He and other coaches are deadly serious about instilling "heads up" tackling techniques to protect the heads of their players.

    "But it's the parents," he said. "They're worried about the brain."

    It is all about the brain. The brains that are injured in the game, yes, but also about how the human mind works, as the American middle class withdraws from football, a cultural trend that will cut the NFL away from American virtue.

    What is virtuous about brain damage? I'd prefer to watch prizefighters. At least prizefighting is honest about its violence. It doesn't wrap itself up in mom and apple pie.

    Woman ends Tinder date stuck in window trying to grab her own poop

    Thought your first date was crap? This Tinder hookup ended with a woman being pried off of a window after she got stuck trying to grab her poop.

    Fact: never go out with an English bird.

    t all started when Smyth took his date to Nando's, a Portuguese restaurant in Bristol, UK. Afterward, he took her back to his apartment, where they Netflix'd and chilled.

    But when his date got up and went to the bathroom, she returned panicked.

    " 'I went for a poo in your toilet,' she told me," Smyth wrote on his GoFundMe campaign site. But when the toilet wouldn't flush, she lost her head a little: "I reached into the toilet bowl, wrapped it in tissue paper, and threw it out of the window."

    Unfortunately, her poop didn't make it out the window at all. Due to a design quirk, the bundle instead fell inside the wide gap between the window's two panes.

    C'mon.

    In Conversation: Bill de Blasio

    In 2013, you ran on reducing income inequality. Where has it been hardest to make progress? Wages, housing, schools?
    What's been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there's a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. And I would, too. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of history that have elevated property rights and wealth to the point that that's the reality that calls the tune on a lot of development.

    Fact: private property rights exist in Westchester.

  • Citizen X - #6||

    Christ, what an asshole.

  • Rhywun||

    You got that right.

    But this grandiosity fits a man who, in the same New York interview, expressed bewilderment that, given the incredible successes of his administration, he is not more widely celebrated. "You'd assume," said de Blasio, "they'd be having parades out in the streets."
  • Mickey Rat||

    "...joyously shouting 'Duce! Duce!'"

  • Jerryskids||

    "Christ, what an asshole" doesn't even begin to cover this one.

  • Rhywun||

    And people think I'm exaggerating when I say the man is a communist.

  • Libertarian||

    Property rights have been increasingly elevated? INCREASINGLY? When does NYC elect the next mayor?

  • Rhywun||

    Two months from tomorrow. The communist is expected to win in another "landslide", i.e. he will get 80% of the 15%-20% of voters that show up.

    Whole Foods: America's Temple of Pseudoscience

    From the probiotics aisle to the vaguely ridiculous Organic Integrity outreach effort (more on that later), Whole Foods has all the ingredients necessary to give Richard Dawkins nightmares. And if you want a sense of how weird, and how fraught, the relationship between science, politics, and commerce is in our modern world, then there's really no better place to go. Because anti-science isn't just a religious, conservative phenomenon—and the way in which it crosses cultural lines can tell us a lot about why places like the Creation Museum inspire so much rage, while places like Whole Foods don't.

    Out.

    Start over.

    You can't break the law and then 'wave the kids' and 'we work here now' in the face of the law. You send a very bad message if you do.

    It's nuts and a good example of how laws become meaningless. The West is what it is because of the Rule of Law and private property rights. As well of freedom of speech.

    You do realize we're talking about people who came to the US when they were children, had no choice in the matter whatsoever, and have no ties to their home country, correct?

  • Old Mexican's Speedos||

    Re: paranoid android,

    Do you really believe it's our highest imperative right now to devote national law enforcement resources to ruining their lives?


    You're describing pretty much what Trumpistas wet-dream about.

  • ||

    Well, maybe the people who broke the law in the first place should have thought of this, no? Why do they not face any responsibility or consequences for their actions? And if America cares so much about its laws, what's so bad about Congress fixing this? He's not ending it, he's asking Congress put a legit face on it. I admit I could be over reaching on that one.

    If you permit me, you seem to be engaging in a bit of an appeal to emotion and maybe the focus should be on people who committed the illegal act who shouldn't have done so to begin with. If you don't close or fix this matter why bother having immigration rules and laws on the books if they won't be enforced? That's a little waving of the 'what about the children'.

    Basically what you're saying is 'okay. You broke the law but you have kids here so we'll grant them whatever'. From a humanist position it's the correct stance but legally and the signal it sends, not so much.

    Know what I'm saying?

  • paranoid android||

    If you permit me, you seem to be engaging in a bit of an appeal to emotion and maybe the focus should be on people who committed the illegal act who shouldn't have done so to begin with.

    I think it's more an appeal to common sense than anything, but if you prefer, we can talk about the NAP. Whatever law may have been broken, the persons affected by DACA had no choice in the matter whatsoever. These persons have committed absolutely no aggression against anyone by being here, and to penalize them for it is an injustice.

    The status of the parents in fact has no bearing on any of this. DACA didn't cover them and rescinding it doesn't affect them either. They live in just as much fear of being discovered and deported as they ever did, if that makes you feel better.

    Immigration law does need to be fixed, I can't believe you don't see how Trump's stoking of racial divisions actually prevents a more just policy from being created.

    As an aside, do you get as worked up about marijuana dispensaries in Colorado and Washington operating in technical defiance of federal law? Is it an outrage that the DEA hasn't been sent in to put these business owners and their customers in prison? Would doing so promote liberty because the law is the law and must be enforced with maximum intensity in all cases?

    Trump's stoking of racial divisions

    LOL, nobody beats the master when it comes to stoking racial divisions over the 8 years prior to Trump.

  • BYODB||

    Anarchy isn't a long-term, or even short term, replacement for the rule of law you know. I know that a lot of people around here seem to think that it is, but those people would be badly mistaken.

  • BYODB||

    Also, the comparison to dispensaries in Colorado and Washington are not as delusional as claiming that Congress isn't 'allowed' to set rules for immigration, but yes it also drives plenty of us insane that an entire fledgling industry only exists according to the whims of the king.

    The Huffington Post is so intersectional it publishes the pro-censorship group formerly known as Morality in Media urging harsher criminal sentencing for folks involved in gay sex work.

    The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) has chosen to speak out on this matter because it believes every individual, no matter their sex or sexual orientation, should be free from the harms of prostitution and sex trafficking, and the Rentboy.com sentence has shown how easily people can sexually exploit others—especially when the victims are male or transgendered—and avoid justice.


    Prior to his trial and subsequent arrest, Mr. Hurant ran what the government has called "one of the largest sex work ventures ever prosecuted." Rentboy.com, has now been taken offline, but was portrayed by Mr. Hurant during this trial as a profitable online enterprise and provider of important "social services" to prostituted males who were solicited on Rentboy.com. Mr. Hurant claimed that the purpose of his website was to help those in prostitution avoid the ills of drugs, pimps, abuse, harassment, and violence, as well as help the gay community.

    In truth, this "noble mission" was a farce and a front facilitation of prostitution—i.e. pimping— and sex trafficking in the interest of making money.

    HuffPo really will print anything.

    I refuse to call them 'dreamers' since it's a soft 'feel good' label, thus I am forced to use the phrase illegal alien to counter act the inherent lie that is the label.

    Clearly, they hate America. If they really wanted to be civil rights heroes they'd refuse to serve gay people, like real patriots.

    A Cuban man in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody died after being found unconscious in his hospital-room shower.

    As God is my witness, I thought Cubans could swim.

    I wonder if we have any Turks in custody.

    Oh my gosh! A poor immigrant died in one of our American Immigration Gulags! THE INHUMANITY!

    Osvadis Montesino-Cabrera, 37, was admitted to Larkin Community Hospital Aug. 22 after ICE Health Service Corps medical personnel at the Krome Detention Center diagnosed him with urinary retention and transferred him to the hospital where Larkin medical staff admitted him for further evaluation and treatment.

    Oh...so he had the benefit of Cuba's nationalized healthcare system but died here in the United States in one of our hospitals on the government dime. Clearly, it's because he was used to a far higher quality of care in his home nation.

    Now, how many of you open borders types would be ok with it if ICE had dumped the guy on a street corner, free as bird, to die like a dog? You heartless monsters!
