Too Tall Oct 17 2019 at 12:13 am Comment of the Day (and we just started). I got nuthin…. kadaka Oct 17 2019 at 2:18 am There are marriages of the faith that are important like to the husband she has kids with. Then there are marriages by the state which are meaningless pieces of paper done for worthless legal reasons as our governments reject the dominion of Sharia law so Ilhan is free to lie, cheat, and marry her own brother. She simply didn’t have both kinds going simultaneously with the same person, no big deal. What we can all agree on is she looks much better with a simple head wrap then those nightmarish head and shoulder covering pleated things which made her appear like a rejected crossover between Star Wars and God Emperor of Dune. Try to not imagine the Halloween costume with that face on a hidden stick ready to zoom within an inch of your face. *shudder* Brent Dotson Oct 17 2019 at 3:58 pm The “worthless piece of paper”, i.e, , the marriage license was started in this country after the civil war to stem the rising amount of interracial marriages. Before then adults had the right to basically marry whomever they wanted. The state took a right and by licensing it, turned it into a privilege so they could deny it. Pretty much their standard M.O. epilitimus Oct 17 2019 at 8:30 pm Goes back further than that, to the Massachusetts bay colony. Only there it was for religious reasons. Pamela Oct 17 2019 at 2:13 pm Isn’t Adultery a Stoning Offense in the religion she waves like a banner of morality in our faces…. cmblake6 Oct 17 2019 at 6:05 pm Why, yes. Yes it is. Why has she not been done by her own? JJ cooper Oct 18 2019 at 3:09 pm They typically marry within close family ties, although, genetically, marrying one’s brother is an invitation to marred children. JJC Steve Oct 18 2019 at 4:25 pm Actually, that’s not really true, in the first generation. Animal breeders do that sort of thing all the time to fix desirable traits, it works out fine. It only really becomes a problem when it happens over multiple generations, a la European royalty. Halley Oct 17 2019 at 12:17 am I wish I could understand the difference between the Democrat party and an actual crime syndicate…. NotYetInACamp Oct 17 2019 at 1:21 am One gets indicted. The other does not. Henry Oct 17 2019 at 1:42 am One has to arrange for Democrat politicians to get a legitimate paycheck, the other is less constrained. Pamela Oct 17 2019 at 1:50 am Don’t both entities resort to money laundering? They just go about it differently. JTC Oct 17 2019 at 10:45 am The Big Bosses of the latter have their adversaries rubbed out, while the former…umm, oh. Steve Oct 18 2019 at 4:28 pm Simple – crime syndicates can’t legislate. Being market-driven enterprises, they also tend to have more reliable, if not outright superior, ethics. interventor Oct 17 2019 at 12:24 am Schumer and Pelosi left the White House in a huff (a 1935 Huffmobile). Supposedly because Trump called SanFranNan a third rate politician. Not, the real reason, of course, as that’s a given known. The real reason, Pelosi saw a bucket filled with warm, soapy water in the room. Shocked, she remembered the unfortunate incident concerning her granny. Dowsed with the same, she melted. Boomer Oct 17 2019 at 12:56 am Halley, the difference is the Democrats take bribes, crime syndicates generally pay bribes. epilitimus Oct 17 2019 at 8:34 pm Nah. the difference is one is a bunch of slime sucking, bottom feeding, parasitic politicians. The other is comprised of honest criminals. Fox2! Oct 17 2019 at 1:10 am +1 JTC Oct 17 2019 at 1:15 am Oh they’ve been making “Trumped-Up” mean something for three years now. Only not like they want. DT has Trumped them up, down, and sideways. They are well and truly Trumped, as in fucked, and they know it. Pamela Oct 17 2019 at 1:53 am No using that PIN if getting off is going on. They’d use whatever decency laws are still on the books to crucify people by any means necessary. NotYetInACamp Oct 17 2019 at 2:09 am Nancy just wants them to keep quiet enough long enough for Kooks in California a to get enough illegals / invaders / military colonists allowed to vote democrat / socialist so democrats keep their power and gain more. https://noqreport.com/2019/10/15/gavin-newsoms-agenda-illegal-immigrants-will-spread-across-america-hes-not-stopped/ The enemy wants the long game in destroying the USA. Holly Oct 17 2019 at 1:23 pm Potential fix at the federal executive level – make states balance their own budgets, and pay for their programs out of state funds. kadaka Oct 17 2019 at 6:52 am Morning News Flash: US Rep Elijah Cummings, Chair of Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, dead at 68. “He played a key role in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.” No word from Speaker Pelosi, 79, if this will cause any delay in the impeachment inquiry, since technically there isn’t one anyway as Nancy hasn’t officially allowed it. Exgunman Oct 17 2019 at 7:14 am “I never wish for someones death, but there are obituaries I read with a great deal of pleasure”—Clarence Darrow (?) JSStryker Oct 17 2019 at 10:41 am “I wasn’t able to attend the funeral, so I sent a strong letter of approval”— Mark Twain. PaulS Oct 17 2019 at 7:58 am The grim reaper is apparently RACIST! I just can’t say how saddened I am by that. Will the reverend Wright be doing the service? “Elijah, is going home, to roost!” Hallelujah, hallelujah… kadaka Oct 17 2019 at 8:34 am Social Security and Medicare are racist, Black Americans die about four years sooner than White Americans therefore blacks slave away to provide more benefits to whites than they receive. So it would only be fair to let blacks get SS and Medicare benefits four years before whites are eligible so both get about the same amount. Pass it on. Halley Oct 17 2019 at 7:34 am I dream of the day we can safely ignore the Dirty Dims and instead focus on the Purple Ticket’s choice of campaign bikinis (or preferably lack thereof)… DogByte6RER Oct 17 2019 at 11:43 am On top of that, this nitwit professor claims that Oprah and other obese black women can blame their eating habits and resulting girth on Trump and racism … See: https://www.lacortenews.com/n/professor-blames-trump-and-racism-for-black-womens-overweight-issues JTC Oct 17 2019 at 12:08 pm Or maybe they can get reparations but this dude… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pa46dQiIAuU There’s about a hundred more like it. Old Codger Oct 17 2019 at 12:14 pm OT From the Babylon Bee: https://babylonbee.com/news/pope-announces-any-time-spent-watching-the-view-counts-as-time-served-in-purgatory Pope Announces Any Time Spent Watching ‘The View’ Counts As Time Served In Purgatory VATICAN CITY—Pope Francis has made one of his official, Popey announcements. (For our Protestant audience, a declaration from the pope is kinda like when Russell Moore tweets something; it carries a lot of weight for Catholics.) Anyway, the pope declared that any time you’ve spent watching The View in this life will count as time served in purgatory. “Frankly, if you watch those women bickering, that’s punishment enough,” said Pope Francis in a speech. He declared that your time will be tallied up by the angels, who will then mark that off as though you’d spent the time in purgatory. If it was 10,000 to 1 I might consider Il Papa’s offer but at merely 1 for 1 it ain’t worth it. Watching those shrews/witches is too much like being in hell! Toxic Deplorable Racist B Woodman Oct 17 2019 at 3:46 pm “too much like being in hell!” That’s the point.
