    Sigh, another day in paradise. Pardon's designed to send a message to cronies that he'll pardon them. This of course at the expense of ignoring the rule of law. We also get to pay more for products because of the idiotic tariffs. Don't know how much more winning we can take. :(

    Anyone ever notice how much pundits on cable news and talk radio love to do this thing where they get way out ahead of their skis on something, walk it back, but then remark on how incredible it is that they're even talking about the thing that they're talking about? Any unfounded claim suddenly sounds so much more serious.

    "To be clear, there's no hard evidence at this point that reptilian shape shifters have infiltrated the highest levels of our government, but the fact that we're even talking about it is incredible."

    Yes, truly amazing. Only one step away from being real :nailbiting:

    inb4 someone bitches that I'm carrying on in main... @stuffalleysays@stuffalleysays' post is so scary.
    I'm still losing my shit.
    It was one thing (no matter how fucked up, granted I didn't see it at the time...) that my spouse-at-the-time was allowed to keep me off BC...
    but a BOYFRIEND. Oh my lord.

    I didn't want to comment because reasons, but that is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read.

    edit: ican't even formulate a good response to it.

    oh thank god it's not just me.

    holy fuck dude, me too. Every time I think this country can't get scarier, I get proved wrong. We all act right now like Handmaid's Tale is just a TV show, but the more I keep hearing shit like this the more it's hard not to think it could happen, in our lifetimes.

    what

    what the shit

    what the actual shit. Are you serious?!

    I don't...I can't...how can any sane culture do anything but congratulate a 19-year-old for being responsible and sensible and getting herself protected?

    It's kind of a good thing I just had a bunch of work show up because I could go on for fucking pages :p don't worry, I won't, I get nobody really knows me here or cares that much about what I think

    just. holy fuck. if that were my daughter I'd be in some doctors' faces (though of course Alley should do whatever she thinks is best for the situation, obviously I don't have kids so my opinion is of extra limited worth here)

    sorry. whew. rage easing off a little. Alley, if you see this, I am so so sorry to hear that your daughter has to deal with treatment like that.
    back to work

    Besides being in a PTSD-giving abusive marriage, most states want spouses to be on the same page about BC. Apparently Biblical terms for being as one are fucking legal. :cliff:

    It's gonna be cool in November to watch Democrats rail against Trump's corruption while at campaign rallies for Bob Menendez

    Is this a southern thing? Or small town thing??
    I can't imagine this happening in the New England - or the Mid-Atlantic States (well, most of them). I can imagine some small towns or Southern towns where they would pull this.

    Shocking in this day and age :(

    I believe this is sort of an 'f-off' USA.
    Emmanuel Macron


    The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be. Because these 6 countries represent values, they represent an economic market which has the weight of history behind it and which is now a true international force
