Complaining that the national parks are closed is pretty short sighted. Along with fairly inconsequential.

 

Just wait until these people realize they won't get their tax refund. 

 

 

 

What refund?

I usually still have to pay a bit.

 

(Besides, why should I feel "good" about getting a refund on money the Gov borrowed from me, interest free, for a year?).

The article I posted talkes about a Russian named Konstantin Kilimnik.  Does this correction have anything to do with the USA Today piece I linked or is it to a different article?  

 

 

 

Sorry it was from NYT's article, I should have noted it. They 'mispoke' about who Kilimnik was sending the data to.

Amen.

Fuck me, I'm well before average income, and I still haven't seen a refund in years. I *might* get one this year, provided that I don't have to pay the poor tax (individual mandate that I purchase a product from a private company under coercion from the government) this year.

 

Oh, you don't make enough money to be able to afford sky rocketing health insurance premiums that are for effectively worthless coverage anyways, you better pay up for a fine then, bitch. Might as well bring back debtors prison at this rate.

Gabbard, a 37-year old combat veteran, has done little to hide her presidential ambitions. 

 

...

 

Within her party, the three-term congresswoman is viewed as a maverick with a penchant for bucking party orthodoxy. During the 2016 presidential election, Gabbard stepped down from her post as a vice chair of the Democratic National Committee so she could endorse Sanders, making her one of the few House Democrats to back the Vermont senator over Hillary Clinton during the primary. She has since been associated with the Sanders movement — in her 2018 reelection campaign, she was endorsed by the Sanders-aligned Our Revolution outside group.

      After seeing the rampant crack down on speech in the UK, I decided that more should be done than just Thoughts and Prayers. 
       
      I know that it's a scary time for our UK members. Knowing that what you say on the internet can put you on the wrong side of a Bobby's nightstick, well, I find that despicable. 
       
      So I've created this place for all your impure or degenerate thoughts. Here's how it works. 
       
      Perhaps you want to say something "offensive". Instead of saying it yourself, you can message any US member of this forum and have them act as your avatar of avarice. 
       
      For example, say you had a particularly heinous fish and chips at the local pub. You may want to say, "Oi, that cheeky fucker Barnaby William can't do a proper chip if he had a fryer for hands!"
       
      This on it's own could send you straight to jail for defamation. Moreso, if instead of chips that sent you reeling it happened to be a kebab from Omar down the street. 
       
      Now your crime has gone from offensive to racially insensitive!
       
      Anytime such an urge comes along, call on your ex colonial friends. We will translate and post your complaint for all the world to revel in, free of charge!
       
      I personally think Omar should learn to pull the fucking kebab off heat before it's crisper than his wife's crotch and blacker than his beard. That tosser!
       
      See? Don't you feel better? And now, no one will be knocking on your door, serving you with a summons for being a racist git.

      Might as well make a new thread now that the election is over.
