What a complete debacle.


Does it mean I can't run for office someday because I rocked blue-face when dressed up like Tobias Fünke?

The inevitable lesson from this is going to be to not care about racist things people did in the past because it was the past rather than for people to stop being racist

This is a fairly controversial statement in his social circles, where “if you can’t afford something it’s because you’re a lazy loser” is consensus.

Yeah, unfortunately, stating "health care is expensive because it's expensive" is looking pretty progressive these days

Boy, I thought Alabama was really overtly racist. For example, a giant Confederate flag flies over I-65 just north of Montgomery and at the University of Alabama Blacks weren't allowed to join fraternities/sororities until the 1980s. But Virginia seems to be pulling ahead.

So this Bezos story is crazy. I love that AMI, Enquirer, etc. had no advance warning, they found out when everyone did.

That woman is invaluable. I’m going to be devastated when she’s assassinated. Hopefully the revolution begins before that sooooo...sometime within the next 5 mins and say two years?

I suspect that they went after Bezos due to some kind of Trump political vendetta, but could you choose a worse target for this sort of thing? The richest man in the world? At his level of wealth, he basically has unlimited money. If I was Bezos, I would do everything legally that I could do to ruin these people. The National Enquirer's website is hosted by AWS for godsakes.
