Only thing missing is a "but her emails" sign halfway covered in water

They are a truly dedicated people.
I doubt the world will come to this due to the worlds combined efforts to stop global warming. However the U.S. missed a golden opportunity to create thousands of jobs by manufacturing renewable products and selling renewable energy. I guess our "smart businessman" doesn't really know that much.
I don't think any dude with a man-bun thinks climate change is a Chinese hoax.
So his 8-year-old daughter saves up for a guitar and finds it. They drive up to buy it and this asshole then just tells her that there's a sales tax so she can't afford it? That's 6 dollars at worst man, suck it up for your kid instead of trying to lure her into your bullshit ideology maybe. What an absolute Asshole.
Edit: the sales tax in the US is apparently only 10 percent max. That's 3,50!
Edit 2: While I greatly appreciate all the responses to this comment, my inbox is getting a bit clogged with everyone's local tax rate. I get it, they vary over the US.
To be fair, that sort of is how Republicans are born. Teach them about taxes, but not all the things taxes pay for. Or the whole idea behind taxation in the first place. Just let them assume the government is stealing their money for caviar and blow.
"Maybe next year, sweetie."
"Maybe next year, sweetie. The feckless poor have convinced the black-hearted liberals in charge of the evil government to take your money away from you so you can never have anything you want."
Mike Pence would end the coal industry by tomorrow
I genuinely think that this could actually work on them.
1 Trillion dollar investment in renewable energy by the end of the week.
"If global warming is real, why is it cold today?" - paraphrasing of an actual FB post
"Okay, then there's only the GOP's plans to build an expensive border wall, cut funding to welfare programs, and a special 'voting council' led by the Vice-president."
Also there is a climate change denier as Secretary of Energy and the administration is reversing progress on environmental protection.
Let's not forget Betsy Devos Under funding and destroying our American education and public school system.
Don't leave out the Secretary of Interior who literally wants to poison our water with lead.
This whole GOP double-think is slightly disturbing. They naturally hold two diametrically opposite opinions/views at the same time and not be consciously aware of the conflict.
"Trust us to run your government"
"The government doesn't work! Watch as we prove it"
When Trump claims something almost impossible, it's obvious that he's telling the truth and that we should believe him. If you don't believe him, you're being shortsighted and partisan. Stop being stupid.
When it turns out that he wasn't able to do that thing, then if you bring up his earlier claim, then you're being ridiculous and partisan. He was obviously exaggerating and anyone who took that seriously needs their head checked. Stop being stupid.
"Trump is just a straight shooter who tells it like it is...but here's what he really meant".
This might need a NSFW tag.
"Nobody knew that fighting international terrorism was that complicated"
Possibly even NSFL
I dig the poo poo juices.
They're Russian upvotes!
I ask strictly out of ignorance. Is it normal for a post to have over a thousand upvotes with only 5 comments?
People like you are literally impossible to talk to.
Trump: this whole russian interference thing is a made-up witch hunt...
Trump: why didn't the Obama administration do anything about Russian interference?!
I would say Carlin would be having a field day with this administration but it's almost like he already saw it coming.
Someone has to fill those private prisons.
There's no shortage of things he's said that were very true when he said them and have become even more true over time.
His trenchant humor reminds me of H. L. Mencken. But Mencken wasn't a comedian or a performer.
As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
Sadly, I don't think Trump is rock bottom.
The best teacher is not the one who knows most but the one who is most capable of reducing knowledge to that simple compound of the obvious and wonderful.
It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place.
A newspaper is a device for making the ignorant more ignorant and the crazy crazier.
Change "a newspaper" to "the media" - and it's perfect for now.
The men the American people admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars. The men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth.
I thought a lot about that during the campaign. And after...
There is always a well-known solution to every human problem - neat, plausible, and wrong.
They are the opposite of pro-life. They are anti-choice, that's all.
Jesus even warned about people that would use his name and claim to follow him who were really evildoers.
15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17 In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will know them by their fruits.
21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many deeds of power in your name?’ 23 Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; go away from me, you evildoers.’
~ Matthew 7:15-23
It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.
go away from me, you evildoers.
For some reason, that part is hilarious.
Jesus is just a brand now. His actual teachings hardly matter to his so-called adherents.
Doesn't matter who is president, the Military industrial complex are the ones who are really in control of things.
These were started under obama
Yet posts like this keep reaching the front page
I don't support trump at all but frankly all this mindless false shit (somehow) further decreases my opinion of reddit
Funny when Obama does it no one says a word.
more people should hear that creepy Eisenhower speech warning about the Military Industrial Complex.
