Trump is just trying to be a real-life Mr. Burns at this point, right?

she was 14 and he made her touch his dick

there's nothing OBVIOUSLY wrong about a grown man making a 14 year old girl touch his dick it's just an arbitrary social convention that we think this is maybe not acceptable behavior beep boop  :vcide:

Alabama's State Auditor is going to the mat hard for Moore right now and explicitly defending kid-touching, just like Joseph and Mary.

What kind of Christian doesn't know that Joseph didn't touch Mary
God did though, and he's way older than Joseph.

For a minute I was wondering why South Africa was saber rattling at Iran.

There's a few things going on here.  One, almost all of these careers require the person to move.  Let's assume for a second that the laughable idea of coal miners learning to code -- guys who probably have not been in a classroom since they graduated high school -- somehow produces decent coders.  Let's also assume that these newly minted coders would be competitive not only against people 20+ years their junior with bachelors degrees and internships, but also Indian and Vietnamese and Russian outsourcing firms who are right now taking large chunks of work from American firms simply because they will work for cheap.  Let's pretend none of that exists, and these guys are ready for the job market.  There are no coding jobs in fucking Appalachia or rural PA.

Equally laughable is the idea of turning these guys into nurses.  Yes, an ex-coal miner is really going to go to school to learn how to wipe seniors' asses, while competing against people 20+ years their junior. 

So that natural gas thing -- that's a good idea! Except these guys have to move.  They don't want to move.  I don't blame them.

What is surprising to me is seeing people who would normally not champion the libertarian idea of "You need to pick up your whole fucking life and go where the jobs are!" sort of Randian absolutism if, say, we were talking about Latino immigrants or poor, working mothers.  But if it is poor white trash well, then, fuck em. Right?  Come on.  Stop it.  Though I do expect it from teeth because he is a weaselly racist. 

The whole fucking country cannot live on the coasts.  There is something to be said for wanting to live a simple life, not in a city, not crammed on top of every other fucking person, paying too much for rent and food and every other fucking thing.  It might seem quaint and bumpkin-ish to snobby liberals but please, realize how elitist this sounds.  There are millions of people who do not want to live in a city.  Crazy, I know!  Something must be wrong with those people.

Are they being stupid for holding out for coal jobs?  Sure.  Would I see this level of scorn if this story was about black folks in Detroit who were refusing retraining because they hoped the auto industry was going to return?  You all know the answer to that.  Quit being fucking jerks.

ETA: Teeth really is a stupid shitbag.
I guess living in a declining coal town or living in a coastal city paying too much for rent and food and every other fucking thing are the only two options. Sucks that we live in a cartoon world of absolutes instead of some kind of world filled with nuance and shades of gray.

Jesus, i thought the first ad was batshit.

Really hoping there's some future date that I can look back on crazy shit like this and laugh.

It's very much in keeping with conservative values as a whole.

Also this. Playing John Wayne dress up and waving a gun around at a rally.

Obviously the best way to maintain good relationships with your neighbors is to barge into their homes and shit on the floor.

hmm yes I can see why abortion would be an irrelevant topic and just a political disagreement that you should tolerate when you're in a supposedly sexual hetero relationship it's not like pregnancy and what to do about it might ever come up as a real issue or something it's just "tribalism" for people to date those who share their values i mean why won't these ugly fat progressive lesbian bitches go out to dinner with me and listen to me rant about libtards and then split the check because lol feminism - checkmate!.
I was going to say something along these lines, but you said it much better.

Way. Too. Many. Cracks.

O brave officers, thank you for not shooting people who threw empty plastic water bottles at you!

The comments on that first Breitbart article are hilarious. I loved this one:

We are witnessing the final fall of our nation, if DACA stands those 800k illegals will make 1.9 million anchor babies the next generation will be 5 million 20 years down the road 10-20million on top of the 40 million already here... Its GAME OVER
What game exactly will be over I wonder? Hmm
Monopoly?

I'm still a little surprised to occasionally read redstate.com and nod my head in agreement.
It's nice to see things like that, but it's also an example of them deflecting blame. The author acts like Trump is some disease that's infected the GOP when the reality is that he's just a symptom of the GOP's real problem: their decades long courtship of racists, xenophobes, misogynists, and other assorted... ahem... deplorables.

And here's one of the guys from that video now literally crying about how there's a warrant for his arrest:

What the hell.

It's as if these people are actively trying to make a parody of themselves.

What is he afraid of? A trip to Burger King?


As a matter of fact, he probably is. Here's Cantell in 2014.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vQ5h8iWa0Q

Now that this appearance on Colbert is circulating people are claiming Cantell is a leftist plant to discredit the true patriots.
But according to the Trumpkins online, Nazis are leftists so that doesn't make sense.

I was shocked Trump didn't endorse Moore.
Strange.

One might even say he was "white proud"
They were white powerful sentiments.

I always find that hilarious. Especially considering how many Spaniards no doubt have some Moorish ancestry.
