Reason #854,392 why I wish California does secede.

 

Now they want to institute a monthly tax on text messages.  Because poor people have the right to text like everybody else, dammit.

"This isn’t very creative it's just political B.S.," Consumer Watchdog President Jamie Court told FOX11. “I find it appalling that there is going to be a text tax because it’s so visceral it’s so anti-consumer and we haven’t established a need for it."

 

Others echoed similar concerns about the plan.

“The public purpose program fund has, already, one billion dollars,” Carl Guardino, CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, told KTVU. "Sometimes we just don’t need a new tax for every idea that a government agency or official has."

I wish Americans had French balls.

People did with Occupy Wall Street but then TPTB told everyone it's the millennials and poor people's fault they are poor.

Dude, Occupy failed because it got taken over by freeloading hippies and socialists.

Hippies and socialists will always join income-equality movements. That's pretty much their entire platform, especially socialists.

Why did the Trump Administration ban bump stocks?

Christmas/Hanukkah present for Ivanka and The Kush probably.

Also why doesn't this go through the legislative process?

Because they amended an ATF regulation. They reclassified bump stocks as bad, bad things and banned them according to existing rules.

 

Basically...

 

Congress: "Machine Guns are illegal! Go get 'em, ATF! xD"

 

ATF: "OK, guys. That's great and all, but you guys are retarded and you don't really know what you're talking about, so you've left the definition of "machine gun" open to a lot of interpretation. I guess we'll figure it out on our own, as usual."

...

 

ATF: "Bump stocks DO NOT turn guns into machine guns! xD"

...

 

ATF: "Bump stocks DO turn guns into machine guns! Shut it down!"

"Hey guys, isn't wonderful to see this classy lady making friends with cuddly cute George Dubya. In these troubled times we need more people like this to stand up to sexist, racist, misogynist Putin-puppet fascists"

 

These fucking cunts just reached a new low. Fucking deranged beyond belief. Cunts. Cunts. Cunts.

The media is throwing a temper tantrum because Trump wants to leave Syria. War sucks. We have killed too many of our own and wasted too much time dealing with their problems. Time to GTFO.
