    Interns work for 12 weeks and are paid $7,200.

    But do they earn it?

    I tried last year and was told I'm 'not sexy, not sexy at all.'

    I fell into a deep depression. I studied so hard and read all the great libertarian thinkers.

    But they didn't ask me any questions like that.

    They put on a song by Prince, I think they said it was 'Kiss,' and then was told - 'dance, be sexy.'

    I guess I failed.

    Fortunately my special lady friend had some MDA and marijuana.

    She gave them to me and said I was her 'sexy man friend,' and would make me forget the mean libertarians.

    Add some pics to make your writing sexy.

    Pledge of fealty to The Resistance optional, but preferred.

    $7200 a spring is not worth being given a troll account and told to increase web traffic.

    Good experience when you send your resume to the Russians.

    Kidding, kidding! Was joke, comrade!

  • Anti-Fasciitis||

    They don't need trolls, they have SJW writers for that.

    Off topic, because I expect there to be no more articles about how credible Dr. Ford is:

    The woman who Ford names as the female present at the party, described as a "life-long" friend, says she has no idea what Ford is talking about.

  • Scarecrow Repair & Chippering||

    Interesting! Says the denier is a lifelong friend of the accuser. Wonder how much longer that friendship will last.

    "The woman who Ford names as the female present at the party, described as a "life-long" friend, says she has no idea what Ford is talking about."

    That seems to be quite common.

  • Unicorn Abattoir||

    That's because THEY got to her first.

    *cues ominous music*

  • lap83||

    another casualty to Russian FB brainwashing no doubt, tsk tsk

  • Anti-Fasciitis||

    Hopefully not a "lifelong friend" in the sense that Seth Rich was a lifelong loyal Democrat.

  • Unicorn Abattoir||

    12 weeks of full time work for $7,200 comes out to exactly $15/hour.

    I think somebody's going to get a cocktail party invite!!!!

  • SIV||

    No dogs, no Hillsdale and no Liberty grads need apply.

  • Unicorn Abattoir||

    How'd they figure out the order?

  • OpenBordersLiberal-tarian||

    From the New York Times: Breaking News: The Trump administration is aiming to sharply restrict new green cards for those who legally use public benefits. The move could affect millions.

    Absolutely disgusting. Such senseless cruelty.


  • Rockabilly||

    I'm working on a go fund me project.

    Every dime you give me will go toward helping the freeloaders with my thought and prayers.

    Will you donate $1,000.00 or are you an all talk and no action democrat progressive socialist?

  • LeaveTrumpAloneLiberal-tarian||

    When are fucking assholes like you going to realize that libertarianism is for old White guys who don't want to pay taxes— not brown people looking for work. Geesch, maybe you should apply for the Reason internship and make minimum wage and learn something. But your probably not worth what their paying McDonalds workers anyway so forget it, I guess.
