Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t ignorance of the law an inadequate defense? Like just because Junior was too dumb to realize he was breaking the law how does that absolve him?

I’m with you. The only notifications that come through on my lock screen are texts, phone calls, and reminders that I set. That is all. I sit in meetings at work and see people’s phones blowing up with notifications about celebrity gossip, sports scores, etc, etc. It’s too much!

For all you people going on about how this comment is petty, or an example of blatant partisanship. You seem to be forgetting the three things Trump can absolutely be counted on to do, ignore democratic norms; abuse executive power; and whine, and rage as loudly as possible to as many people as possible.

Ouch, this is rough. I hate the idea of him being able to force a text to my phone, but at the same time, if this were literally any other president, I’d be fully behind it. If FEMA and the office of the POTUS both think I should know something immediately, I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Read more

I don’t really fly anymore because of this kind of crap so I vote DMV also. I have never understood why a public service department only opens during regular work days and closed afternoons and weekends.

Main difference between say NY and Paris is that the French government allocates money to maintain important infrastructure while the US congress argues about whether to hold another meaningless vote on the affordable care act.

Depend on government for your ride to work, surprised when it gets taken away for three years. Who knew?

I think they’re saying that depending on food you grow is dumb. So your staples should be things you bring with, while the stuff you grow is there for the psychological boost.

Really, what they’re saying is that early farming will be too limited to produce staples, so it should be something that’s a luxury, instead of to be relied on.

Real penises and vaginas aren’t at all garish. Purple cock-shaped vibrators with a sparkly butterfly attached – those are garish.

Maybe these corporations could use all the money they spending lobbying* politicians and use it to pay their employees like human beings. Or we could keep sliding into a cyberpunk megacorp dystopia. No matter how cool living in a William Gibson novel sounds, we should probably choose human decency.

Three things that will never rise again: the proletariat, the South, and Jesus.

Not in a Ray Wert kind of way. It’s like nature took broccoli and made it taste awful, take forever to eat, added toxins, and made it cause people to poop something fierce. It’s a vile plant that I wish didn’t exist. We love banning plants in this country - we should ban kale.
