The percentages indicate likely overlap between some people who like the idea of socialism and some people who want the free market to take the lead.

Someone please find these people and euthanize them, they're too stupid to be allowed near a ballot box.

Most of them are usually too busy getting stoned to vote. Ask them why and you'll get something along the lines of "It was like a good idea man, but it just didn't happen."

Meanwhile, in the UK


A MUM has revealed she had a huge poo "explosion" during labour - and we're sure lots of parents can relate.

Issy Fox, 28, gave birth to son Freddie last year and was not prepared for what happened in the delivery room - admitting she covered doctors and nurses with her faeces.

Issy and partner Luke conceived via fertility treatment and she had an easy pregnancy, with no complications.

But she didn't have a birth plan, having decided child birth would be "pretty awful" anyway.

Issy was already 10 days overdue when she went into labour - with her waters breaking at 1am - and the poo started pretty much immediately after arriving at the hospital.

She told Huffington Post: "The midwife asked me to go and provide a wee sample – and this is when the poo started.

"I couldn’t help but push a poo out into the tray because of all the pressure. The midwives just laughed it off and waited for me to just provide some pee."

By 7am, Issy's contractions were much closer together - and this is when her bowel movements ramped up a notch.

She added: "I was pooing with every contraction and the midwives were very subtly swiping it away.

"Unfortunately, my a*** was facing Luke most of the time so he also had the pleasure of watching a log fall out every minute or so."

Then, when she actually gave birth, Issy experienced an "explosion of poo".

She recalled: "I tore and exploded poo, womb stuff and blood all over the doctor, walls and floor.

"(My baby) was covered in my poo, his poo, blood and God knows what else. My first words were: 'I love you, but you’re disgusting'."
And they say news is dead!

The RAND corporation recently released a study on the changing presentation of the news in the last century. You can read the report here, and the brief here, and watch a C-SPAN interview with one of the authors here.


Television news has made stronger shifts to subjectivity, conversation, and argument
  • Similar to print journalism, television news has shifted from straight reporting that dealt with complex issues and grounded news in the abstract concepts and values of shared public matters to a more subjective, conversational, argumentative style of news presentation.
  • When comparing broadcast news with prime-time cable programming in the period after 2000, an even more dramatic difference is apparent, with prime-time cable programming being more subjective, abstract, and directive. However, prime-time programs on cable news channels tend to be opinion-based shows led by pundits, not news reporting-based programs, which could influence the comparison.
Online journalism features a subjective kind of advocacy
  • Online journalism is more personal and direct than print journalism, narrating key social and policy issues through very personal frames and subjective references.
This research presents key insights for Truth Decay
  • There does seem to be evidence of a growing use of opinion and subjectivity in the presentation of news. However, the results of this study are not necessarily generalizable. Also, some of the effect sizes are relatively small, and changes observed over time and differences across platforms are subtle in many cases.
  • Changes in news presentation identified in this report are relevant to individual news consumer decisions about which media organizations to use and which to trust; trends toward subjective journalism might reduce that trust.

On the front page of the BBC and Guardian is this story: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-48364081

A BBC manager has told colleagues she turned down a promotion after finding out she would be paid £12,000 less than a man in the same role.

Karen Martin emailed fellow members of staff to explain the BBC were hiring two deputy editors for the BBC radio news room.

She said colleague Roger Sawyer would be earning more than her.
Roger Sawyer has a Linkedin profile which says he graduated Oxford in 1986 which means he's probably 55+. He's also worked at the BBC for 12 years since 2007.

Karen Martin doesn't have a Linkedin profile but there is a Facebook profile that appears to be her. The profile works at the BBC, often links to BBC radio shows that the correct Karen Martin works on, and is friends with the previously mentioned Roger Sawyer.

Going by that Facebook profile she looks about 45-50 and didn't work at the BBC ~5 years ago (she appears to have been doing PR for a pub back then). She also has 3+ young kids so it's a good bet she took time off which would also explain why she was doing the pub job if she was apparently qualified for better.

5-10 years younger, 7-9 years less years at the BBC, and possibly 10+ years less experience in the industry. I can't imagine why she would be paid less...

But... but.... MUH WAGE GAP!

There are so many things modern feminists screech about, it reminds me of the line of Jack Nicholson's character in As Good As It Gets when asked how he writes such realistic female characters: "I just think of a man, and remove reason and accountability."

Gen Z and the “Swastika Pose”

A dangerous new trend has emerged among Americas Generation Z “The Swastika Pose” in an attempt to make light of one of histories darkest periods.

Racist internet memes were once relegated to web forums and social media sites alike but have recently began popping up in real life situations, consequentially resulting in real life hatred. There is no argument the “Roman Salute” (a nazi white supremacist hand gesture) symbolizes racial hatred, but the new “Swastika Pose” with it’s contortionist characteristics has blurred the lines between hatred and comedy (which is exactly what they want)

First came “the Dab” which eerily resembles the “Roman Salute” See how the majority of participants are young children making light of this serious gesture. The origins of “The Dab” are all but innocent as you can see in this photo. The purpose is to humanize hatred and re-package it as “fun” to Americas unassuming children.

There was “The T Pose” a bodily gesture designed to resemble the popular KKK “The Burning of the Cross” which once again became wildly popular among America’s generation Z. The birth of “The T Pose” is highly debated with many attempting to claim that it originated within video game culture but no one can argue that the KKK had existed long before video games were ever even conceptualized. See below:


The “OK” hand sign might be one of the most notorious examples of racist rhetoric wrapped up in a neat package of friendly gestures. What makes this hand gesture so horrifying is that almost every celebrity has performed this sign providing racists with more than enough propaganda to spread to the masses. The sign was even performed by President Obama (before it was found to be racist) The ADL identified the “OK” hand sign to be an official symbol of hate mid 2018.

Now, it is 2019 and there is a brand new trending bodily gesture subverting America’s youth and tempting a rekindled hatred once relegated to the past. The “Swastika Pose” is undoubtedly racist and there can be no debate around it. Where at one time these poses were ambiguous nods to the emerging far-right, there can be no doubt in anyone’s minds that this pose is in fact, a racist gesture.

Upon research i quickly came to a youtube channel titled “Master Nibu” who gives a tutorial on “How to do a Swastika Pose”
Those re-claiming the swastika as a “symbol of peace” is undoubtedly a part of the attempt at reaching children.

This video has taught countless children this outrageous pose who have all gone on to teach their friends, families and co-workers. As you can see in the image below, young commenters under this video have suggested they are attempting the pose at their schools.

The indoctrination of America’s youth has spiraled out of control under the Donald Trump Presidency. Right from wrong is no longer clear as the moral compass of America continues to spin into oblivion. These viral new trends which make light of Americas darkest periods are nothing more than an attempt by a sophisticated international organization of racial hatred who’s aims at subverting the youth are met with laughter and praise from teachers, celebrities and even the President of the United States himself.

With nothing standing in the way of moral degradation other than a reporter and her computer, i will continue to update you all on the pressing matter of our forgotten youth who’s futures seem all but bleak.

In lieu of a ‘salary’, Tama got all the cat food she needed. She received a promotion, too: in 2008, she became a ‘super station manager’ and was even knighted by the prefecture’s governor. In the process, she received a dark blue ceremonial gown with white lace neck ruffles, and thousands of tourists began coming to the small, single-platform station to see her.

Did a quick reverse image search on her profile pic as it looks generic as fuck; nothing showing up on TinEye and only her medium profile shows up with google; the image link is still valid despite the deleted profile.

A quick search for her full name returns only unrelated results and an 8chan page discussing the same article and calling her a jew. I archived it for good measure.

She doesn't seem like a real person; I'm getting a feeling it may have been a troll.

EDMOND, Okla. – Newly-released 911 calls reveal the moments an alleged shooter turned himself in after a man was sent to the hospital with five gunshots to the stomach.

Bernard Laster was initially arrested on a shooting with the intent to kill charge. Now, he faces assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm after a former conviction charges.
“He shot my baby daddy and my baby, my baby,” a 911 caller said.
A chaotic scene was heard on the other end of the phone.
“Is he breathing?” dispatch said.
“Yes! There is blood everywhere,” the caller said.
Moments later, a second 911 call came in. This one was a different voice.
“My kids almost got hit,” the second caller said. “They were over there.”
After several calls into the police department, one, in particular, led to the alleged shooter’s arrest.
“Do you know the person who shot the person or anything like that?” dispatch said.
“Uh… Kind of,” Laster said on the phone.
“Are you there with him?” dispatch said.
“Yeah,” Laster said.
But it turns out this caller was alone.
“Are you the actual person who shot him?” dispatch said.
“Yeah,” Laster said.
The 911 dispatcher couldn’t even believe the answer.
“You’re the person who did shoot him?” dispatch said.
“Yeah,” Laster said.
“Where is the gun at, Snook?” dispatch said.
That one word was the last that Laster, also known as Snook, would say before officers put him in handcuffs.

Police said the shooting began over a pair of shoes.

According to the Edmond Police Department, officers were called to the Coffee Creek Apartments.

Laster admitted to police that he did pull the trigger several times because the victim took his shoes and his car.

Laster currently sits in the Oklahoma County Jail. He was released from prison in 2006 after serving a sentence for robbery and drug possession.

News 4 is still waiting on an update on the victim’s condition.

Someone who was not legally allowed to have a gun, got a gun and shot someone with it over some fucking shoes. The best part is that this incident will add to gun crime stats, which will be trotted out over and over again as a reason to implement stricter forms of gun control.

There isn't a comedic writer on the face of the fucking planet who could make this shit up.

Man allegedly hiding drugs in butt accidentally shoots himself in testicles, report says (Archive)

Cameron Jeffrey Wilson, 27, was carrying a gun in his front pocket on April 5 in Washington state when the firearm accidentally discharged, the Wenatchee World News reports. The bullet pierced Wilson's testicles and then went into his thigh. Upon arriving at the hospital, a doctor was operating on the gunshot wound when a balloon of marijuana slipped out of Wilson’s anus, court records show, according to the report. Police arrived at the hospital and searched Wilson’s car where they also found a bag of meth, the report said. The man’s troubles did not end there, though. As Wilson -- who is a convicted felon -- was being processed into the Chelan County Jail, he was strip-searched and another balloon of marijuana came out of his anus, according to the Wenatchee World News.
I did a search and I'm pretty sure this hasn't been posted yet, feel free to delete if I'm mistaken.
