A round up of Trumpian events 🖕🍊🤡


#4566


Good thing they’d never mistakenly detain an American and accidentally “deport” them somewhere else! /s

Missed this the first time I read it:

In August, the Border Patrol set up its first highway checkpoint in New Hampshire in five years — more than 70 miles from the border, and near a local marijuana festival. It used drug-sniffing dogs, then turned over people suspected of drug possession to state police for arrest.

Then they came for the hippies. . .


#4568

That’s quite a tag-team to do what border patrol and law enforcement couldn’t do separately:

  • Police couldn’t do a mass stop’n’sniff.
  • Border patrol couldn’t bust citizens for drug offenses.

Still, it wouldn’t be the full trifecta of abuse of powers until they worked out a sharing arrangement for proceeds of “civil forfeiture”.


#4569

“Russia’s internet providers don’t have the ability to block specific URLs, meaning that the entire country risks losing access to the platforms if the original publishers don’t take the videos down by Feb. 14.”

An entire country not being able to watch Paul Logan taser a dead rat is just horrifying. /s


#4570

But if Russia blocks YouTube, where will BoingBoing get most of its terrifying-road-incident-video posts?


#4571

LiveJournal (it’s one of the few places where it’s still popular)


#4572

Not coincidentally, LJ got bought by a Russian company and changed its TOS to comply with Putin’s hatred of gay people, so the bulk of its remaining non-Russian user base fled to less intolerant pastures.

To swing back on topic, I thought Republicans were against Big Government telling people what they could and couldn’t do, because that was tyranny.

Oh wait, it’s only tyranny if you’re rich, my bad.


#4573

For folks living outside of the US, this is what prime time television here looks like


#4574

This is not troubling, no, not at all.

Those foods would include shelf-stable milk, juice, grains, cereals, pasta, peanut butter, beans and canned meat, fruits and vegetables, according to the USDA.

Mmm, mm. Love that canned meat -spam?- and canned peaches drowned in high-fructose whatever instead of those yucky fresh ones.

And how would those be delivered? Wouldn’t those boxes be stolen from doorsteps with the same frequently as Amazon packages?


#4575

Come on, would hungry people steal food?

/s


#4576

I’m a proud Soylent drinker, and even I see where this is going…


#4577

#4578

Part of me wants to imagine this as a (very stupid) make-work project for the USPS, but I’m pretty sure it’ll get pawned off onto FedEx or UPS for like six times the price because Republicans hate the USPS for some inexplicable reason. Which means 90% of people will probably have to get to the depot and wait in line for their monthly bread allotment USDA-approved corn supplement Blue Apron For Poors™ box. Assuming it isn’t stolen.

#4581

Big Brother has long been a guilty pleasure of mine. That said I couldn’t even make it halfway through the first episode of this session before being like, “nah, I’m good.”

I didn’t expect much in the way of celebrities, like maybe one of the Lesser Baldwins or like Heidi Montag or some other washed up TV personality as a “big name”. Even with my low expectations I was hugely underwhelmed with the cast. When fucking Omarosa on her apology tour is your big draw, you done fucked up.


#4582

#4583

See how immigrants are always involved in crime?!?


#4584

Because his team would kick them out.


#4585

Sorry, funds NOT available
