How can anyone at Fox News be bored when Hillary is using the deep state to email uranium to Benghazi with the help of the FBI?

I don't have one, and won't have one.

You wanna text me?  Text me on 7.042 MHz.  Oh, and you *MIGHT* want to bone up on your Morse, I send pretty fast.

Only if you can hack it to make a dick pick your driver's license picture.

I do like to dabble in dick puppetry...with enough time, I could probably craft a costume that acts as a reasonable approximation of the complex tapestry that is my face.


Heh, Dick Puppetry sounds like a cover band that only does 1980's Power Ballads.

My CSB:

I got in an accident and the guy that hit me from behind (on his cell, no doubt) pulls out his smartphone to show me his insurance card image. I stepped to my car (with his smart phone in my hand) to copy the information and my thumb slips and the next thing I see is a metric ass-load of dick pictures! I damn near dropped the phone.

end of CSB.

The best part of it is that I can say shiat in Morse with long and short strokes and she has no idea what I'm saying.

Big pig peaches --

The requirement to even carry a license of any kind is outdated. Police computers can look up whatever they need to know.
Can't happen - they need black people to reach for something before filling them full of lead - get your mind right, boy!

If I was looking to track people who were specifically searching for bad stuff on the internet, I might ask myself how I could convince them to use my search engine instead of Google.


They'd be outed in court records. Sure they'd bury a few, but it wouldn't be worth it to operate just to get a few.  Like VPNs for stealing music files, if users started to get convicted the word would get out pretty quick

FWIW, I think DDG is owned by a Russian company.

aseras: That's BS the cops all have computers now. They know your license, insurance and registration status before they even hit their lights to stop you. It shows a picture of the registered owner from the DMV database and make and model of the car. Insurance is all computers. They don't care if you have a card or policy. It's instantly verified. Hell most of the cops here have printers and print out citations. No more ticket books at all.


We'll yeah, that's how 90% of the cars/people pulled over on Live PD never have licences or insurance.  They know driver is suspended/expired and follow them until they commit a minor traffic infraction to bust them (since there is no proof of WHO is driving, they have to wait for a stoppable offense and then, " Oh surprise, the registered owner is driving and *gasp* they don't have a licence!!?? And a warrant !!!? Well sir, just so you know I pulled you over because you didn't signal your lane change 100 feet before moving over but now you are under arrest and your car is getting towed.")

OkieDookie: With the E-DUI law we've just passed, I'm just waiting for our state to come up with a Drivers License App, so the cop can get you for an E-DUI for touching your phone in a vehicle when you hand it over.


Because I touch myself when looking at my phone, I assume no Fife would want to touch it.
