Like most mindless lefties, I bet you didn't even read the articles, did you? :lol:

If you had, then why would you have bothered to post them? You just read the bullshit, misleading, yellow journalism headline, did your bigoted knee-jerk, and echoed it like a good little ass-puppet.

Explain yourself. What point were you trying to make by posting these articles? What do you think they say?


I can post the same story from some right-wing lawyer if it would make you happier.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/secret-service-cant-pay-agents-due-to-trump-travel-family/ar-AAqsmrJ

Quote:
WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer afford to pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump's family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast.

Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex'' Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year.

Not sure if the E stands for Ecstasy or Europe.

Ecstasy. In the UK and Europe (and Japan), MDMA is called "E". For some reason, they used to call it "X" in the US, even though there is no X in the word Ecstasy.

These days, people call it "Molly" in the US. No idea where that name came from.

Huh that adds up. Had a patient with MDMA-like OD symptoms and the word Molly but nobody knew what it was. Thought it was his GF.

The X probably came from the bastardized shortening of the word "ecs"tasy.

The word Molly? Mumbling? A tattoo?

:lol: That is a logical assumption on your part.

I wish people knew what they were doing. Know what you're taking, know the dosage, know the bloody chemical's actual name (3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine), and use it responsibly.

Yeah, but that has such an "Idiocracy" feel to it.

Bit of trivia... the word in Japanese for good is "Ii" (pronounced "E"). Like to say that is good you would say "Ii desu". To say something feels good you say "Kimochi Ii", which is also could mean "Feels like E" as the slang term for MDMA in Japan is E, at least in Tokyo.

Maybe that explains it :D

X didn't last as a name though, did it? My awareness of it went from Ecstasy to Molly, but I'm not into the culture

Seems like a natural progression to end up with it being called E.

Split off the antifa and related comments as only one thread is needed.

They've been merged to American Al-Qaeda: fatality after terrorist action.

It's pretty interesting to see a president that is almost incapable in making any kind of deal.

Four ways Trump could force Congress to either fund the wall or shut down the US government

Quote:
The problem? “I’m not sure if Trump is capable of negotiating something that’s a win for all sides,” Lieber says. And it wouldn’t be easy to persuade Congressional Republicans, who have spent most of the last decade railing against Obamacare. Giving it more money in exchange for a wall that they’re not very fond of anyway won’t make them happy. “There is not a lot of political excitement within Republicans in Congress to fund the border wall, and to fund it at the cost of shutting down the government because they can’t get Democrat votes,” says Binder.

Trump Took Three Tries To Spell "Heal" Right In A Tweet And People Had Jokes

After a right-wing "free speech" rally and massive counterprotest in Boston on Saturday, President Trump tweeted a call for the American people to come together and "heel."

Autocorrect is oftentimes more irritating than helpful.

Kind of like unnecessary large and bold text.

Russian lumber industry benefiting from Canada-U.S. trade dispute

The U.S. is importing more softwood lumber from overseas after it slapped tariffs on Canadian supplies, making them more expensive. Russian shipments are 42 per cent higher so far in 2017, according to U.S. government data.

Whatever happened to "Muh Russia"?

How do you say 'whoops' in Russian? Podesta Group retroactively files more DOJ disclosures for pro-Putin work

Quote:
The Podesta Group belatedly filed several new disclosures with the Justice Department on Aug. 17 related to work the firm completed between 2012 and 2014 on behalf of a pro-Russia Ukrainian think tank.

Back in April, the powerful Washington lobbying firm run by Clinton ally Tony Podesta filed a document admitting its work for the pro-Russia European Centre for a Modern Ukraine may have principally benefited a foreign government. New disclosures revealed dozens of previously unreported interactions the firm made with influential government offices, including Hillary Clinton's State Department and the office of former Vice President Joe Biden, while lobbying on behalf of the center.

Found "Muh Russia"! It's was the DNC itself.

IT staffers may have compromised sensitive data to foreign intelligence

Quote:
Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say.

What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects.

Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

“This is a massive, massive scandal,” a senior US official familiar with the widening probe told The Post.

Yeah, not surprised at all. Seems like much of the regressive left (and Globalists in general) just has the goal of "Get Trump by any means necessary"
