The government isn't "shut down". We're still paying taxes and they're still there to collect them with a smile. All is well, friends!

Yes. that's why I made the meteor countdown comment. I think around 8-12% of the government actually gets "shut down" during these stunts on average. But some see it first hand and it's an annoyance. In my hometown the ORV accesses to the beach get barricaded every time among other things on national seashore. So I guess the Dept of interior is affected. Whatever job IOU does was affected to some degree if I interpreted his post right. In my line of work being contracted by the federal government we were not affected.

So yeah, 90% of the population didn't notice a difference.

Dear sir and/or ma'am, or whomever might identify as a non-binary gender unspecific race of anthropomorphic objects of various origins and designs (not to say that design is inherent, as all religions and philosophies are viable and welcome in a safe space of progressive society... motherfuckers... such as ourselves. Not to say that fucking one's mother is acceptable. And not to say that it isn't acceptible in certain non-mainstream cultures located in isolated places in the rainforest)

I for one am personally appalled that we still refer to African Americans as "negroes" and I think if they had any conscience and decency at all, they would change the name of the United Negro College Fund to the United (As Long As It Is Consensual And Collectively Agreed Upon) Non-Specific Racial Identity Insofar As It Isn't White (spit, BAH! white is BAD!) College Fund (As Long As It Isn't Considered A Microaggression And Designed To Keep Non-Whites In Perpetual Under-Privileged Poverty).

Just Kidding. WHITE POWER!

Sincerely,
White Male Privilege

All the hubbub over race seems so 'provincial' on evolutionary time scales.

But, the memes are fun.

Not surprising.

Trump's toxic relationship with the majority of the press, lends itself to a negative story whatever he had said.

Trump bent the truth probably a few times during his State of the union but who hasn't? Lol. One I noticed is the making 2.4 million jobs thing when he's counting when he was president elect and when Obama was still in office. The same period before that Obama "made" 2.7 million jobs. Of course you can compare and contrast the jobs that were made, but right now the media is taking the stance that the president has no influence over job creation. I just wish they would have notified us of this when Obama was in office ;) :dohdohdoh:

Reading this crap and seeing how much scrutiny and bias he's under opposed to other presidents is ridiculous. The media's narrative is having a reverse effect on people like me.

I heard at least one person comment on Pelosi's tongue swabbing her gums saying "This is what happens when you get old and get your Polident and Preparation H mixed up."

"progressivism is the fear that someone somewhere is making America look good"

Since the phrase Shithole countries was offensive, these countries should now be referred to as Turd-World countries  :evilgrin:

I think this change of words makes the statement much more PC.
