I believe that if I see someone verbally attacking another person it is my duty as a fellow human

being to say something. And that includes the growing number of racists who feel empowered because of trump.

I hope other people do this too and I hope if some are not doing it that they start, if you are uncomfortable saying something you can always apologize to that person for the OTHER person's behavior after they leave or to say something like, "I'm sorry that happened to you. That person is just ignorant".

I know plenty of people do this already. But it bothers me to hear people say, "It's not my business" I believe it is our business to look out for one another.

Trump Documentary from years ago! 1:20 hours long! Everything you never wanted

to know about the tiny man in chief. I just paused it in the beginning because I had to post this! They are talking about Gorbechav!!!

The Russian ties go wayyyyy back


EDIT: Dear Oklahoma women who hate this guy and want to make him pee in his pants

(I think I am being irresponsible here but you get my drift. If I were in Oklahoma and were of child bearing age I would do this)

Tell the newspapers that you are pregnant with this guy's kid and you need his "permission" to get an abortion. This is your new baby daddy.

Make him prove that he isn't!

Color me stupid but if someone at the IRS sees Trump's returns and also sees connections

with Russia which could result in a danger to the national security shouldn't they be required to report this information to someone?

For example, If everything was above board and a politicians taxes revealed that they received money directly Putin I would think that would be a national security interest and the IRS would have to share the information with the proper authorities

At the very least they should be auditing him again since they were 't doing it when he said they were.

I also don't know why his taxes haven't been leaked but that just me being curious

Not exactly on topic but I need to know what kind of pipe to get for an herbal mix

I read about these 2 herbs, Khella and Lobelia that are supposed to be great for asthma and other lung problems. Lobelia is called "Indian Tobacco" because native Americans used to smoke it. The thing is they never got sick from it and it actually does the opposite of tobacco.

I bought some loose herb from Amazon and went to the local convenience store and got rolling papers. I never really smoked pot as an adult and can't roll the damn things!

So I decided to get a pipe and I thought about those glass ones but it looks like it might not stay lit in the little bowl. (?) And the regular pipes I looked at were expensive!

So I'm asking what kind of pipe would you use to smoke pot since this stuff is a herb like it.

(By the way when I have gotten a semi decent roll and I can take in a kind of big toke it burns the back of my mouth for a few seconds and then I hold it in and my lungs literally relax and open. I love it! I'm also taking the Khella through a tincture and that is helping a lot too)


Trey Gowdy Concedes the military could not have gotten to Benghazi in time

Trey Gowdy Concedes: The Military Could Not Have Gotten To Benghazi In Time To Save Lives

A central element of conservative conspiracy theories spread in the aftermath of the September 11, 2012 attack on our diplomatic facility and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, has been the myth that the military could have responded to the attack more quickly and therefore saved lives.

In the most outlandish version of this story, President Obama or Hillary Clinton ordered the military to “stand down” rather than come to the aid of the Americans who were under attack.

Earlier this week, a letter from two House Democrats to Rep. Trey Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican who is chairing the select committee investigating the Benghazi attack, revealed that the GOP’s own chief investigator acknowledged during the investigation that nothing “could have been done differently to affect the outcome in Benghazi.”

I don't know how to post these things

Check out how this Orlando bakery got out of baking an anti-LGBT cake!


Judge rules Orlando bakery didn’t discriminate against anti-gay customer

A Florida bakery that refused to make a cake with an anti-gay message was found not guilty of discriminating against a customer who requested a message the owners found “hateful,” News Service of Florida reports.

Orlando area bakery Cut the Cake first attracted the attention of religious conservatives after it was targeted by Arizona evangelist Joshua Feuerstein, who called on April 1 to request a cake that read: “We do not support gay marriage.” Owner Sharon Haller asked if it was a prank call before saying her bakery wouldn’t put a hateful message on a cake.

(She didn't know she was being recorded by this guy)

But Haller and her daughter Cyndol Knarr, who co-owns the bakery, said they didn’t technically refuse the Mannarino’s request. Knarr gave him a quote over the phone — $150 per letter, for a total of close to $6,000 — and then hung up before completing the order when Mannarino said he was recording the call

Kellyanne Conway's interview tricks, explained

What bothers me is that any news station would invite her on at all. It wastes the viewers time as does every interview with someone who dodges the questions does.
