(Rolling Stone)   You'll never guess who wants to defund law enforcement after the raid at Mar-a-Lago. Ok, you probably can and yes it's the usual suspects being hypocrites but damn it I need a green because I'm at work and hung over right now and need cheering up   (rollingstone.com) divider line

Oh, cheer up.
The world only gets more insane and inane from here on out.

They haven't been this mad at the FBI since the feds started arresting klanners for violating peoples' civil rights.

I'm sure we'll see all the same Farkers pointing out to the Republicans that "it's a terrible marketing message" 🙄

Voted up and a post to bump up the post count.  That's all I can do.  For subby's sake, I pray it is enough

And it's the type of defunding that they twisted the term around to when "the left" suggested it for the police.

This is why Trump wants the ability to fire mid-level people anywhere in government that he pleases. How better to prove your innocence then eliminating all the people who might investigate your crimes.

Hypocrisy is a core conservative value.

That Frank Stallone is really getting in to things he doesn't understand.
 
2022-08-09 1:50:23 PM  
Calm down, everyone. I'm sure this is just one of those "no-knock" raids that got the wrong address.

Those are never a big deal.

Wow.

Wow.

They must really be worried about something if they're in panic mode to get rid of law enforcement like that all of a sudden.

"Wait.  WE'RE WHITE! You can't do this to us!!!!"

I'm holding out until I hear what Diamond and Silk have to say.

As mentioned in previous threads, they don't see the hypocrisy because they don't see the FBI as part of "the Blue" for some BS reason that's mostly based on feelings.

It doesn't matter. For those keeping score: this is the 1,304,422nd call for fascism by TFG and his GQP supporters.
 
2022-08-09 1:52:48 PM  
Oh, now you want to defund the police.  Too bad.  Just be glad they didn't put a knee on his fat neck and ride it like the Shai-Hulud.

I hear you Subby, here in Australia it's nearly get up to go to work time and I'm up early because I'm hydrating to minimise my hangover too.

When headlines become confessions. Anything for clicks, we're all clout-chasers now.

Gosar's "failure is not an option" ROFL. What about your failure to inspire your own family members, 6 of whom farking campaigned against you? Was it an option then?

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene whined that defunding the Department of Justice would "completely cut out of their budget the ability to persecute Republicans"

You wouldn't be able to persecute Democrats either, or anyone else for that matter.  Maybe you aren't thinking this all the way through.

Remember when Steele ranked in the top 5 stupidest republicans?

"They can never win with this message, Independents won't go for it."

*easily sails to reelection*

"Yeah but still, it's electoral poison."

I like when the hypocritical echo chamber pretends to take issue with many things but seeing hypocrisy itself get mentioned resulted in a smile.

The FBI tends to investigate/arrest corrupt small town cops for things like corruption or hate crimes. They really don't like that.

TFG is clearly orange therefore the standards of white privilege do not apply.

If she had the ability to think things through, she probably wouldn't be a Republican.

If that were the case, the cops would have shot him dead and sprinkled cocaine on his corpse.

The gameplan was for them to keep the Dems from accomplishing anything for two years so they can swoop in for the midterms.

So far the past week...

- The Dems passed the Inflation Reduction Act
- The GQP was shamed into passing the PACT Act
- Gas prices continue to drop
- The entire contents of Alex Jones' phone are in the hands of the January 6th Committee
- The Feds legally obtained a search warrant on TFG and Mar-A-Lago
- Everything else that has come out today

What was once a guaranteed "red wave", the GQP is looking to lose the Senate, possibly even the House, even a supposed powerhouse like DeSantis is seeing his opposition creep up in the polls.

/not getting cocky
//but I am cautiously optimistic

Republicans keep trying to make everyone mad at the FBI but it's just not working. They're screaming bloody murder, doubling down, invoking the Names and calling people socialist...and nobody cares. It's falling flat.
 
2022-08-09 1:58:27 PM  
Subby, everyone knows that all you have to do for a green around here is misspell the headline in a comedic way. Why be so pathetic about it?

The trumpers are about to become even more desperate.

If she had the ability to think things through, she definitely wouldn't get elected in her district. I've spent a little time there, they really hate that.

Most ppl who work for a living aren't real fond of craven servility. Those that are harbor a wish to be cravenly served, truth be damned.

Why you gotta blue ball subby like that?
