Why, Chuck? It's clear that America's happy to renege on the promise that Lady Liberty offers - hell, we regularly mock the providers of that statue as "surrender monkeys" because they didn't agree with our need, 16 years ago, to ruthlessly bomb a country that had nothing to do with the heinous terrorist attack even as we glad-handed the country that sponsored it.

The last three decades or so have done a grave disservice to Lady Liberty. If we really want to use her as a symbol once more, it's time we goddamned walked the talk.

'd---ed wall'

Glad The Hill opted not to offend their readers' delicate sensibilities by bleeping the headline. I hope none of them read the first line of TFA, they might not be near enough to their fainting couches.

What the fark is Chuck Schumer wearing in that video?

The top half looks like he's going to a Deadmau5 show, the bottom half is wondering if he can buy Ensure in bulk at the local Kroger.

Lady Liberty's promise has always had an asterisk. Just ask any Italian-American, Irish-American, etc.

Shhh, don't give him any ideas. Taking down the Statue of Liberty is now within the realm of possibilities. Especially if you tell him not to do it.

Why doesn't trumpee just reach out to his billionaire and millionaire buddies, and all those companies he thinks support him to build a wall..

Or, why doesn't DC go after the CEOs and companies that hire illegal immigrants and punish them for hiring illegals?

Oh right, because they benefit from immigration, they hire immigrants (legal and illegal), and those immigrants spend $ in their businesses......

Lets just drop this stupid wall shiat.

The schedule is whack. I got asked at like 8pm yesterday if I could do the double today. My normal shift is 11pm to 7am, and they wanted me to cover the 3pm to 11pm shift.

So off at 7am, finally asleep by 10am because I didn't prep (usually I get more notice), wake at 2pm to get here at 3pm, working till 7am...

If this was a more active post I'd be in trouble.

Abramson's thread is not quite right.

Trump has at least one real political objective---settling scores with the brown people who, he thinks, humiliated his father by insisting on their right to rent apartments from him if they had the money and not be denied housing because Fred Trump thought only white people ought to live somewhere decent.

Trump never forgave the lower orders of humanity for what he took as an insult to the family honour. He won't rest till he gets even.

I've been away from the fandom for a few years, but there was always those few Nazi-uniform fetish people even back then. At the time I thought it was mostly just for the 'taboo' aspect plus the snappy uniforms, but still wouldn't go near that corner of the fandom. Sounds like it has gotten a lot worse...
