I don't really get "news" - I scan headlines and use my keen and well-honed sense of the human condition to know what the truth is.

yep - I don't want anything to do with the college-educated person that wrote the article.. just let me know what the dude who flunked out of the Des Moines School of Typewriter Maintenance thinks about tax policy.

True. Boomers have been terrible in respect to public policy. However, as bad as Boomers have been, they did not test the limits of our democratic institutions like the current administration.

Aren't a lot of the high ranking politicians boomers still? Seems like they're just trying to fuck us one last time before the younger generations take over.

Oh fuck yeah. The tax cuts in my waning years will be a boom for me. Then, as I’m ready to kick, the deficit will be so high they’ll have to cut social security and Medicare.

Y’all are fucked.

I think he thought if the university officials focused in on the keg-havin' frat brothers, it would divert their attention away from the young boys he had in his closet.

It’s funny how some people thought Obama was the Antichrist. Trump and Pence fit the profile much better.

The same Mike Pence who ratted out the frat brother is the guy who used campaign donations from his failed 1990 Congressional run to pay his mortgage, bills and greens fees to the tune of $13K.

Typical "conservative Christian" He has a keg but there's no problem with me spending money meant for my campaign of golf and house payments. (In 1990 its was just shitty, not illegal.

the sexual predator thinks a good 'ol fashioned Jihad on America is a good thing. It would take focus off of the Russia investigation and urinating prostitutes and allow him to advocate for his wall and his other anti-American bigoted ideas.

Nothing would please the sexual predator more than a non-white guy terrorist attack on Americans.

Another murderer was found not guilty of what is clearly murder. There’s a link below if you want to watch but man, it’s fuckin bad. If I were you I would just work on your life plan to ensure you never have to have an interaction with a cop under any circumstance.

Wait, this cop was put on trial and they used that video?  And it was a not guilty verdict?   ON what basis?  Background please.  Was the guy on the ground a known murderer who has shot people?   Why was th ecop so scared of a person in shorts and a t-shirt?  Who was the guy who was killed?

We just live in a police state guys, that’s all it is. Avoid them at all costs. There’s almost nothing they can do that will result in any sort of punishment and they know it. They don’t even have to plant evidence anymore. They just have to say “oh I was so scared” and they get to murder you.

That’s fine as long as they promise I never have to see or talk to them because there’s a decent chance that after holding a gun to my head for 5 minutes if I flinch they will murder me.

Yep, it's not even a lead story on the news anymore.  Kids getting killed by guns in high schools has an "Oh by the way" news flash to it.   Kids.  Unless you're counting deaths by gun, then the NRA counts 16 & 17 year olds as adults.
