Supposedly Trump is slated to pick Chris Christie as his vp if he gets the nom. But what if..... PALIN?

At times like this, I usually say something like, "I'm moving to Canada." But now? Hell I guess even Mexico would be an improvement now.

Here's a list of people dumber than Sarah Palin.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

(There's nobody on it. See what I did there?)

Media, social media above all, is freaking out over the anti-tranny law NC just passed. So many people are taking strong and passionate stances with this on both sides. This is how I feel. I think trannies are a little odd, I feel that it's a little weird that it's increasingly becoming more of a standard for young gays and lesbians to emulate their opposite gender, but of course I'm not in favor of any kind of discrimination or different treatment. Assuming the right wingers have a point, which is preventing sexual predation of some trannies that are perverts, what exactly did this law do? Instead of a male -> female tranny using the women's bathroom, they must use the men's bathroom since it says male on their birth certificate. So now, this hypothetical pervert, will be using the restroom next to my son instead...? Lol

I think trannies are weird like I said, and yeah I don't want my kids pissing next to trannies at a urinal. But all this bill seems to accomplish is singling out the LGBTQ community and enraging the crazy liberal youth. Why couldn't they've just left them alone/let individual counties and cities decide whatever? Damn it.

Several news sites are reporting variations on, "Teen Groped...", "Teen Girl Sexually Assaulted...", etc., at Trump rally.

But is that accurate?

In the first video clip, a Black Lives Matter protester at a Trump rally is accusing an older man of "touching her breasts," subsequently tries to sucker punch him, and gets immediately pepper sprayed by another bystander.

<span data-s9e-mediaembed="youtube" style="display:inline-block;width:100%;max-width:640px"><span style="display:block;overflow:hidden;position:relative;padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe allowfullscreen="" scrolling="no" style="background:url(https://i.ytimg.com/vi/TA1S0KQD2W8/hqdefault.jpg) 50% 50% / cover;border:0;height:100%;left:0;position:absolute;width:100%" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/TA1S0KQD2W8"></iframe></span></span><br /><a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/TA1S0KQD2W8" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/TA1S0KQD2W8</a>


From this alternate angle, it appears to me as though the only thing coming into contact with the protester is the folded piece of paper the man was gesturing with, at about 1:25:

<span data-s9e-mediaembed="youtube" style="display:inline-block;width:100%;max-width:640px"><span style="display:block;overflow:hidden;position:relative;padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe allowfullscreen="" scrolling="no" style="background:url(https://i.ytimg.com/vi/qg_cuODF5rU/hqdefault.jpg) 50% 50% / cover;border:0;height:100%;left:0;position:absolute;width:100%" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/qg_cuODF5rU"></iframe></span></span><br /><a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/qg_cuODF5rU" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/qg_cuODF5rU</a>

Haha! Notice the dude in the red hat who so very nonchalantly maced the cunt in the eye... also nonchalantly tries to escape unnoticed through the crowd afterwards.

What kind of a fucking dork goes to a political rally anyway? Anyone here? If so, sorry, but you're a fucking dork. It's like going to church. It doesn't benefit YOU at all. It only benefits the asshole standing behind the podium, who, when you really get right down to it, doesn't give fuck number one about you. STOP GOING TO THESE THINGS, ASSHOLES.

Most of these protesters come to these events to start trouble.  That girl started the incident and when she threw a punch, someone ended the incident  :evilgrin:   If she had not threw a punch, then she just would have been a annoying B and would not have got peppered.

IMO she got what she deserved.

If dreadlock dude handles his shit like that, he probably deserves to be bullied by a girl. Whatever happened to the good old days when someone said something completely fucking rude and dickheadedly out-of-turn to you and you'd turn around and shoot back with a simple yell of "FUCK YOU!"? When the Japanese blew the fuck outta Pearl Harbor, our grandparents didn't write Japan a fucking thoughtful letter requesting that they meet with us and a neutral third party who would mediate a conflict resolution forum. They geared up and shipped out to the Pacific to go hunt down and kick the living shit out of the Japanese for what they did. And most of us think of our grandparents as nice sweet old farts who go to church and watch Andy Griffith reruns on TV Land, but they still have 1000 times more BALLS than todays generation apparently.

"Venezuela Runs Out Of Money To Print New Money"

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-04-27/end-venezuela-runs-out-money-print-new-money



:uhoh:

"Wait a minute, why not just print a single 100,000,000 Bolivar note instead of one million 100 bolivar bills?"

lol
reminds me when Zimbabwe created the 100 trillion dollar note!


and then they decided to abandon their local currency (zimbabwe dollar) to use only american dollar and south african rand!

Boy have things changed in 4 years. From Romney being afraid to cut Obama down to trump now referring to Hillary as "crooked Hillary"... Lol.
