After centuries of magicians, carnies, pro-wrestlers, and televangelists, how did it never occur to this guy that you can still make the money without doing it for real?
It is only unlikely because Trump is doing it now instead of in four years time. ICE, law enforcement, and especially the Military all have a real problem with rightwing extremists infiltrating them, but the infiltrators are all still at pretty low levels of seniority right now.

First, the claim that… Read more
I know this world too, and sorry, but fuck this attitude. My white rural community was fucked, but you know was fucked even more? Indigenous communities nearby and black communities who had to live even more rural. The fact of the matter is that these people from liberal art colleges make just as many bad choices, but… Read more
