Reading TNLP's posts is like reading the comments section on a Facebook post. Not quite coherent enough to argue against, and you know it wouldn't make a difference, anyway, but damned if he doesn't leave a few on every thread.

I am truly surprised that none of the articles on this have been posted here yet:

Berkeley riots 'sadly ironic' at home of free speech
How sadly ironic that the home of the 1964 Free Speech Movement — the University of California at Berkeley — was the scene of a violent and ugly protest Wednesday night that successfully stopped the constitutional right to free speech.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

How many motherfracking Trump threads do you need? Are you autistic?

Edit: would have thought there'd have been a filter for that one.
Filter, pfft. I'm astonished that you typed that here. Frankly Skip's fracking translation doesn't really change very much.
Why not put your erudite vocabulary to work writing incendiary tweets for Fainn? You can help. Ignore Bob.

Yay for saving the environment!!!

Sanitation crews work to remove massive amounts of garbage from DAPL protest camp before spring thaw
It's estimated it will take 250 trucks filled with litter to clear the camp.

When I organize for our village festival, I hire some dumpsters to manage all of the trash. I wonder why the protesters never thought of that?



On the other hand, I never thought of disposing bodies in my dumpsters. I guess you just can't think of everything.

Where do you dispose of bodies?

I know a guy in the floral delivery business. He moves bodies on the side.

Seriously though, it's bad enough that the environmentalist protesters left 250 truckloads of trash.

But it is even more troubling that the DNR clean-up crew is a bit worried about IED's and other mayhem.

And then to recall the piles of litter and trash after the "Women's March," and all the vulgar hate-speech and violent threats from their celebrity speakers.

I'm starting to wonder if half of Hillary supporters belong in a "basket of deplorables." Irredeemable, perhaps.

Right or left, people are just messy in general, IMO. I'm saying this as I organize my pens by size and color. :lol:
