I have to ask at what stage this shit becomes actually like... actionable. I know we have some people who know the score around here. When does this level of blatant law-breaking become something that legally can be turned into some sort of punishment? Or is the President entirely above the law outside of Congress slapping their hands?

All these double-speak declarations that are later passed on as "jokes" arent even funny.

It's only actionable when a Democrat is President.

The part of town I live in is FILLED with illegal immigrants. I know I'm dense, and stupid, but what I SEE in how they help complete strangers and don't burn the whole fucking place to the ground, makes me wonder, because a lot of these folks are a lot more decent than what we accept as an "american"... I start to feel ashamed of being an American because obviously good, hardworking people cannot be citizens of our country. They must've failed the "bastard" test.

EDIT: We have a thriving market here, just down the street. And no, it's not Wal-mart. We have businesses in the area, and a lot of them, that cater to people who don't speak a word of english. This is fine, although, nobody speaks english, so it's difficult to communicate what services you need. The residents of this community have been much more kind to me than other places I've lived. I can't understand, so I watch them, and when I do, I see the kind of morals we lost somewhere, fifty years ago, just in terms of kindness for random strangers. Then I read these alarmist news articles about homicidally inclined illegals, and my brain goes, yeah, that does happen, but our citizens commit a lot more murders than these folks, and don't even get me started on "Florida Man".

It's a trite one-liner and I've used it to death to shut down casual racist pricks who make the mistake of thinking I'd be down with their inferior, petty, half-arsed hatred of humanity but it's also gospel truth - 100% of people who have personally fucked me over, given me shit or plain attacked me in the street have been Caucasian just like me. If I was gonna get on board with racism then I'd be going after whitey.

Eh, it's only a good gauge to limit racism. All people are, people, and worthy of love and respect... even white people.

Quick skim: looks like the redactions aren’t too over the top. Just enough context given to understand why most of them are necessary (a couple of the larger blocks get side-eye worthy, but even those usually have enough build up that you can get the general gist of why it might need to be redacted). Not so much the personal privacy ones, but there’s few enough of those in small enough doses that I feel they’re not /blatant/ hiding of bullshit.

Again, just a quick skim, but that’s my initial impression. I’ll give it a proper examination later on probably, unless someone beats me to it. Pretty decent first impression given I showed up with a nail gun and several prints of Renaissance paintings of the crucifixion.

We have some few good greatest fucking hits today, and I speak without sarcasm.

The IRA redactions were pretty extensive IMO.

I don’t remember them being extensive in a way that resembled ass covering. Given the logical flow of the document you could tell roughly what they were looking into. I’ll give it another look in a bit, though, need to unbury the computer anyhow.

You’re right. I’d estimate much more, actually.

I might have missed that because by “skim” I meant “found first immediately interesting page number and scrolled down from there.” Whoops.

I feel like folks that claim it was a joke need to explain the joke more often.  Being called on it and just called an asshole makes the defensive and then they double down, insisting people don't have a sense of humor.  Having to explain it might get them to realize it really isn't funny.

Warren just called for the house to start impreachment proceedings.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, shattered underpance lies,
With blown elastic, and exploded back,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Doktor Howl, Spag of Spags:
Look on my ass, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
