You might think women from India and the region are powerless but they have a mighty weapon. And when that weapon is unleashed by multiple women at the same time, well, it can shatter the globe and all the offensive men in their path.
India's most populous state, Uttar Pradesh, has created so-called "anti-Romeo squads" to tackle sexual harassment. (BBC)
It's the "mom slap" as I like to call it. An open-palmed cuff to the back of the man's head which reduces him to a little boy at the first contact. This relatively-painless blow strips the ego and the age from men who feel that women should be subjected to harassment and abuse, and turns them back into the infants they are. Powerless when confronted with a group of confident, angry, and united women.
The mom slap. I don't think there's a person alive who doesn't know what it is, and there's a lot of people who could certainly use a good slapping to knock some sense into them. Like the dickheads from the Freedom Caucus who are doing their own version of sexual harassment against women in the US. Only maybe in their case maybe mom should use a hair brush or a wooden spoon.
The mom slap. Deadly, determined and you'd damned well better think about it before ever trying that shit again. Ph33r.
And, among other things, the Trump administration wants the side of the wall facing the United States to be "aesthetically pleasing in color." (AP)
Chaos is pretty simple, just let entropy do its thing. On the other hand order and structure, well, that's muuuuuch harder.
The Republican Party of "no" for Democrat Barack Obama's eight years is having a hard time getting to "yes" in the early Donald Trump era.
The unmitigated failure of the GOP bill to replace Obamacare underscored that Republicans are a party of upstart firebrands, old-guard conservatives and moderates in Democratic-leaning districts. Despite the GOP monopoly on Washington, they are pitted against one another and struggling for a way to govern. (AP)
The first thing a baby learns is to annoy its parents by dropping, throwing and grabbing shit at random. Baby doesn't know much, only that it gets them attention and it's EASY. Parents, on the other hand, need to teach baby rules, limits and self control so that their youngster can interact with society at large, not be a nuisance, and to deal with the hard work of learning and growing up.
The GOP is still pretty much in that "throwing shit" stage of growth. After so many years of screaming, crying, pitching a fit, refusing to cooperate and acting out for attention they have no idea how to function as a viable entity. Sure they're all GOP in name, sure they have the numbers to make the government function to their benefit... but there's the rub, they can't all agree what that benefit is.
The government, and conservatives in particular, have forgotten the utility and art of compromise. Now that they have the ability to steer the ship, twenty hands are all grabbing for the tiller and the ship is stuck with it's sails luffing, no destination in sight.
Well... that's not all bad now is it? A few years of going in circles may actually knock some sense into them (or their constituents) and maybe IF they can learn to cooperate with each other, and that's a big maybe, then maybe they can learn to cooperate with the others as well. Maybe...
Too bad you actually didn't THINK them through eh?
In 1998, Mr Beristain came to the US to visit an aunt and decided to stay.
In 2000, he and his wife, a naturalised US citizen originally from Greece, accidentally crossed the Canadian border while sightseeing at Niagara Falls. When they crossed back into the US, border patrol agents detained Mr Beristain.[..] His wife supported Mr Trump because of his immigration programmes, and thought her husband - a businessman and father - would be spared. (BBC)
Gee Helen, guess you thought wrong eh? Mmmm, I love the smell of burning hypocrisy, I really do. All the conservative fucktards who suddenly developed concurrent cases of amnesia and patriotism and somehow FORGOT how close they and their family are to the immigrants they're choosing to hate. See immigrants like our parents, cousins, best friend's husbands, those aren't the real immigrants we need to interdict, they're "good" ones, it's the "bad" ones that need stopping.
Thing is, if you came here and stayed in any way that wasn't legal, you WERE one of the bad ones. Even if that happened fifteen, twenty, fifty years ago, that person standing outside America wanting to come in was the bad person. Time doesn't mean anything, as this case proves, and fools like Helen drank the red-white and blue Koolaid without a second thought, because well, thinking is hard.
Sorry you were so stupid Helen, you and the other people who voted for tRump that have conveniently forgotten their roots, relatives and friends. You all should be fucking ashamed of yourselves. And when it comes to spending money, don't go fucking crying to me about the abandoned babies, wounded soldiers and other social services that your president wants to cut and who are "more deserving". There's no damn reason we can't do all the things to care for our fellow humans, inside and out of this nation if it WERE a priority for Washington. These are not mutually exclusive and that logic is bullshit.
But then again, you'd have to think about that.
Awww, Dickhead Donald is having a sad.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- With the failure Friday of Republican health care legislation, President Donald Trump's campaign promise to replace so-called Obamacare "immediately" has been broken.
That promise stands at odds with his statement that "I never said repeal it and replace it within 64 days. I have a long time."
On multiple occasions in the campaign, Trump said he would get rid of President Barack Obama's health care law "very, very quickly," especially if he came to office with a Republican-controlled Congress.
Yep, keep making shit up as you go along Donny-boy, because ain't no one noticing your lies, contradictions and bullshit. Nope, no one is keeping count. Seems like all your threats didn't matter much. Methinks that they'll matter even less from here on. It's entertaining that even with a GOP majority that DD couldn't make it fly and has to blame it on the Dems again.
64 days of FAIL douchebag. And it's only going to go down from here. Since already the pattern of "lob out shitty legislation only to get it shot down" seems to be firmly in place. But hey, I'm sure the press will be more than HAPPY to paint your tribulations in a positive light, treating you and your successes with the same dignity you accord them. Nope, no one is keeping count. Well... then again, maybe I'm wrong about that.
It's totally true, nothing CAN be as stupid as tRump. Everything he says keeps supporting that hypothesis.
(CNN)President Donald Trump defended some of the most controversial claims of his young political career in a wide-ranging interview with Time magazine published Thursday, in which he offered a simple and absolute defense of his method:
"I'm a very instinctual person, but my instinct turns out to be right. Hey, look, in the meantime, I guess I can't be doing so badly, because I'm President, and you're not," he told Time's Washington bureau chief, Michael Scherer.
It's like he's never grown up, never gotten out of 2nd grade. Really that's the BEST he can offer? "I'm President and You're Not?" Really? Not even "well I thought about it" or maybe "I have some super-smart people advising me" possibly even "I support the will of the public, right or wrong." Newp, it's just "I'm right because I'm always right because I'm smarter and richer than you and also I'm president which means that I'm the smartest person on earth, even smarter than those other presidents who aren't president any more."
Seriously, this is the guy who just sat in a semi yesterday and said "vroom, vroom" as he sat behind the wheel. Yep that's the president, a certified imbecile.
Your privacy! Wheeee!
NEW YORK (AP) -- The Senate voted to kill Obama-era online privacy regulations , a first step toward allowing internet providers such as Comcast, AT&T and Verizon to sell your browsing habits and other personal information as they expand their own online ad businesses.
That's right SMALL GOVERNMENT FANS, now your internet provider can not only SNOOP on your browsing but make a fat pile off it too. Privacy? Lol. Fuck that, not when someone can make a buck off it. Of course if you don't like how you're being treated by your ISP you can always switch, because the GOP fosters business and competition!
Consumer advocates also point out that it can be hard, in many areas of the country, to dump your cable or phone company for another one if you don't like its practices. Of course, it's also hard to stop using Google or Facebook.
Whoopsie! Or not! Good job conservatives, pat yourself on the back. And if you can't I'm sure the internet will provide your name, address and email to someone who will solicit to do that for you.
Hey Junior, you're embarrassing your NATION.
LONDON (AP) -- Donald Trump Jr. is facing criticism for a tweet sent in the hours after Wednesday's London attack that included a months-old comment from London Mayor Sadiq Khan that terror attacks are part of living in a big city, but left out that Khan was noting that residents need to "be prepared" for such attacks.
So a month later you take a tweet out of context to attack London's mayor because HE'S NOT WHITE AND THAT OFFENDS YOU. You little turd, howabout you learn what your dad can't like WHEN TO KEEP YOUR FUCKING CAKEHOLE SHUT, you little shitbag.
Guess what? Daddy's little girl was gonna pout until she got just what she wanted, what every little girl wants, an office just like Daddy's!
President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump is to have an office in the White House, her lawyer says.
The 35-year-old will have security clearance and access to classified information, but no official title or salary when she works in the West Wing. (BBC)
Gotta admit, she's following in the patriarch's footsteps when it comes to raw, unfiltered, inappropriate greed. I can't recall any other president that just "gave" a family member leave to open a for-personal-profit business within the White House. But then, tRump and his loathsome offspring don't give a fuck, they're greedy-grabbing as fast as they fucking can.
Of course, not EVERYONE is a supporter. Or willing to turn a blind eye.
March 21 (UPI) -- Modern Appealing Clothing, a small San Francisco clothing boutique, has filed a class action suit against Ivanka Trump's fashion company.
The suit, filed last week in the Superior Court of California, alleges Ivanka Trump has used "the power and prestige of the White House for personal gain."
From Missus Slutty-slut-slut bitch-balling about how she was missing a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to profit from her brand" to baby-girl actually USING the White House and Daddy's staff to pimp her wares the tRumps are mocking the public at every turn. They're going to emerge richer than anyone, and it was all handed over, lock, stock and barrel by suckers who felt that somehow this would empower them.
I certainly hope the next resident of the White House will take the time to count the forks, because when it comes to greed and theft of the US, no one does it better than a tRump.
Because EVERY toddler should have a gun.
DELTONA, Fla. (AP) -- A woman who left her child unattended in a vehicle in the parking lot of a Florida church's school has been charged with felony child neglect after the 3-year-old boy found her loaded handgun and pulled the trigger, sheriff's deputies said.
PHOENIX (AP) -- The parents of a 9-year-old boy who was shot in the head in their Phoenix home put off calling 911 as they cleaned up evidence in multiple rooms of the house, police said Wednesday, calling it a case that "shocks your conscience."
It's tRump-merica! Everyone should have a gun! Every single person, including babies and fetuses. Because GUNS MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER.
Except for dead people. But they don't count.
Remember that "guy" who said America doesn't need foreign workers, rah rah? Well turns out rah rah don't cut it in reality.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- As President Donald Trump touts job creation for Americans as a top priority, his son's Virginia winery is seeking permission to hire foreign workers to cultivate its grapes.
That's right the good ol' flag-waving, fist-pumping, made-right-here with American labor isn't. Not when it comes to menial fucking jobs like picking grapes. Oh sure it SOUNDS good, and it sure sounded good to the suckers that bought into the notion that the US could operate just fine without foreign labor. Until guess what, no one applies for the job.
"It's difficult to find people," said Libby Whitley, an attorney who has worked with employers, including Trump Winery, on labor issues.[..] Whitely said she assumed her company would be flooded with people applying for the jobs because of the media coverage of the winery's initial request.
"Guess how many applicants we had? ... 13," she said. "And they were all from places like the Philippines, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria. We did not have one American worker apply on (the first job order)."
Yeah, that's the ACTUAL reality. Sure American's want jobs... just not THOSE jobs. You know the hard ones, where you have to sweat your balls off in the sun planting, pruning and picking. That's what we need cheap foreigners for, those we want to keep on the other side of the wall.
Goddamn people are fucking stupid.
Travis you're a dick. Actually no make that a dildo. Wait, no again, make that smegma, you know the yellowish stuff that smells really, really bad. Yep, that's about right.
The nude photo scandal has revealed to the public an age-old divide inside the Corps, where some Marines flatly reject the idea that the world’s most respected warriors should be judged for behavior that is unfamiliar or unsettling to most civilians.
One former Marine and member of the Marines United website at the center of the scandal offered a forceful defense of Marines and the conduct under scrutiny.
“We were only created to fight and win wars. We’re not some polite gentleman society. We are proud savages!” Travis Lee Hamrick told Marine Corps Times in an email.
“We love war, and we pray that we get selected for the combat deployments. Truth be told, we really just don’t fit in with civilians, whining over which bathrooms to use in America. We certainly couldn’t care less about politics anymore,” said Hamrick, who spent ten years in the Corps, leaving as a corporal. He now lives in South Carolina. (Marine Times)
First off, my apologies to South Carolina, because there isn't a state in the Union that you should live in. What you need is a rock, preferably outside the Union, like maybe on an uninhabited island somewhere. Empty. No other humans. Because you basically admitted that you're a misanthrope. Or psychotic. Probably both.
I'm very glad, however, that you couldn't care less about politics. That's a great thing. I hope you don't vote too, because your views are so far out of the mainstream that you really need to be kept far away from society, one that depends on decency and respect. It certainly doesn't need a fucktard like you going around with the urge to strangle everything that pisses you off. THAT GUY CUT ME OFF - KILL HIM. THAT WOMAN LOOKS FUNNY - KILL HER. Nope, we don't need any of that. Or you, for that matter.
Know how veterans are often greeted with "thank you for your service"? Right? Not in your case. It's "No thanks, sorry you served. Really, it's amazing the military survived your participation."
Yep, that about sums it up fuckwad.
So I keep encountering this theme: "Everyone else is intolerant and I'm just the victim here. I'm nice, I don't tell other people to shut up. I don't threaten them, they threaten me. I'm ironic, not mean when it comes to making political points, just laugh it off." In a nutshell these people are deniers, they deny that they've ever been rude, offensive, insensitive or aligned with political viewpoints that dole that out by the double handful. "I'm not an ultra-white-right-winger, I just think they're Right that's all."
I really like all those same folks who then point the finger at liberal anger, taking to the streets in protest when decades of anti-black, anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-immigrant anger didn't lead to deaths, abuse, burnings, tauntings, and killings. OMG LIBERULS HOW DARE YOU.
Right. How dare they.
It's not like they put bullseyes on their democratic opponents. Nor abused women in positions of authority. Nor mocked the first lady for being black. Imprisoned people for being gay. Or shot blacks in churches, or their own cars. No, that's white privileged and it's god-fucking-given, not hard-assed-earned.
So here's a message to the "bystander-white-right." You can't hide behind your little curtain because it's so fucking thin everyone can see right through it. Think you NEVER said anything offensive? Think again, you did, that time you were drunk, comfortable, unaware, accidentally honest, brutally honest, sarcastic honest, whatever. You're not part of the problem? Like fuck you're not. Just because you're not wearing the hood doesn't mean you wouldn't put one on if no one else was looking.
Guess what. It is you. And lot of people just like you. And if it bothers you that you're losing friends maybe, just maybe, you need to take a look at yourself and think about what other people see when they look at you. And if that doesn't bother you? Well, then what's there to feel bad about?
Now Cuntyway can have her cunty-hubby around too, both sucking the government titty for all they can.
March 18 (UPI) -- President Donald Trump has nominated George Conway III, husband of Trump's counselor Kellyanne Conway, to fill a key post at the Justice Department, according to multiple media reports.
You have to hand it to Dickhead, he does right by those who are stupid enough and dedicated enough to embarrass themselves and this nation in his name.
Never have so many given so much for so few.
But that's only because they've just begun...
When he doesn't want to face the actual WORK of being president what does he do? Go back to campaigning. Maybe that way the grass will stay greener...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- President Donald Trump is returning to the road, rallying supporters to recapture the enthusiasm of his campaign and reassuring them about his tumultuous early days in the White House.[..] In Trump's rally telling, things in Washington are going great. He's been cracking down on illegal immigration, is "way ahead of schedule" on his southern border wall and is on the verge of passing a new health care plan that "does so much for you."
Dickhead has a really hard time with actually sitting down and doing the work and who can blame him? Work is HARD. It means THINKING. It means REASONING. These are things that Dickhead doesn't want to do because they're not fun. Worse! People have been cracking down on his fun all over the place (how dare they.) Dickhead tweets whatever he wants whenever he wants, and it's all true because he's PRESIDENT. Anything the president says is automatically true and anything he does is automatically legal, but no, stupid people insist on CHECKING facts, on demanding PROOF. How rude! Don't they respect that he's president?
So to escape all the stress and "work" (read: showing off to foreign dignitaries) he's back on the road, pressing the flesh and stomping around on stage because even without bread, circuses are a GREAT way to keep the masses entertained.
Until, you know, they can't be entertained any more.
NEW RINGGOLD, Pa. (AP) -- Among the groups hardest hit by the Republican plan to replace the Affordable Care Act is one that swung for Donald Trump during last year's presidential race - older Americans who have not yet reached Medicare age.[..] Health care experts predict those older adults will end up buying skimpier plans with lower coverage and higher deductibles because that's all they will be able to afford.
Yes, those days of grandstanding to screaming masses have gotten a little more strained. It's one thing to have someone else to blame for the problems but now the buck stops with him. And Dickhead has to find a way to keep the cult happy, even when they're the ones who will be taking the fall.
Good luck Nero, keep on fiddlin'.
Eight years of un-fucking America under the banner of "hope" and stupid hicks could only complain that a non-white person was President. Now they have the ultimate, privileged white-boy who suckered them in and suddenly they find "hope".
In his first budget blueprint since taking office, President Donald Trump held to his promise to build up the U.S. military while slashing domestic spending - even for programs that benefit the rural and lower-income Americans who voted for him last November.
"Some people might think it's a betrayal," said Eric Waara, the Republican city manager of the 7,000-person town of Houghton on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, who said he hoped the proposal was just a negotiating tactic. "I think that we all hope it's the first small step until something better."(AP)
It's not "hope" it's fucking delusion. These are people who voted for someone who HATES them, loathes the poor, detests anyone who isn't in the top tax bracket and still they have "hope". Hope for what? I'd like to know. That he'll keep his promises of eliminating your medical coverage? Taking away your food? Ensuring that the elderly pay more and receive less? That their rivers and streams fill up with cancerous mining run-off? It's not like Dickhead Donald didn't say he WASN'T going to do these things, he sure did and you morons STILL voted for him.
Wanna know what else I find funny? After 8 years of screaming and crying from the NRA about how guns were going to get taken away NOT A DAMNED THING HAPPENED (except, of course, that gun companies made a fuck-ton of money as people hoarded as fast as they could.) Now, of course, gun stocks are poo-poo.
My fellow tRump-voting americans, I have this to say to you: "You're fucking retarded." And... as always... enjoy your "win". The more of you die as a result of your own actions, the better off this nation will be, because you're not smart enough to make good choices for yourself, not to mention the rest of the nation. Better stock up on "hope", because that's all you've got left.
Go on guess! Who am I talking about? You have absolutely NO idea right?
There are "no indications" that Trump Tower was under surveillance by the US government before or after the election, a Senate committee has said.
The statement from Republican Senator Richard Burr, Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, dismissed Donald Trump's claim his phones were tapped.(BBC)
That little white lie by the sitting president just cost the american taxpayers well over several million dollars. Because he can't come to terms with the idea that there's ACCOUNTABILITY now, completely incapable, a man who is used to getting and saying whatever he wants. It used to be some lackey's job to clean up after, to quietly hide the mess or make the impossible come true. That lackey is now the GOP.
And that lackey has just said: "no".
