Texas bro.

About every 4th vehicle here seems to be some souped up $60k truck with $20k worth of lifting and addons. The economic anxiety is palpable.

I'm sure this guy is a horrible person who I shouldn't root for in any way, but that's still pretty badass.

Re: July LC Thread **Survivor White House Edition**

I ate tacos at Torchy's today in Kingwood and watched game 2 of the WC. It was good. I decided not to mess with hip areas and just drive around in the suburbs. I felt like that would be a more authentic Houston experience.

I saw my old subdivision in Kingwood - Kingwood Lakes Apartments. I guess it was under 7' of water and they're still redoing the apartments.

I may have a day to kill in Galveston tomorrow.

Re: July LC Thread **Survivor White House Edition**

Lest I have ever given the impression that Australia is free from struggles with right-wing idiots, I woke up to this from our right-wing state government in the local newspaper today:



Quote:
As countries around the world look to loosen legislation around recreational use of the drug, South Australia’s government wants to go the polar opposite direction.

As part of a new war on drugs declared by the Marshall Liberal government, the state’s Attorney-General Vickie Chapman is looking to slap those smoking weed with fines which are more than four times higher than they are now.

The proposal means cannabis would be elevated to the status of “other controlled drugs” such as ecstasy and heroin with fines of up to $2000 or up to two years behind bars.
Imagine how much of a dip**** you would have to be to think this is good policy. As ever, it will be enforced regressively. I have weed sometimes and am obviously not going to stop if the penalties increase. I can't imagine any circumstance in which I'd get busted, and being middle-class and well spoken I wouldn't be shocked if I got let off with a warning. It'll be some poor bastard up in the dirt-poor northern suburbs where they bother to enforce it.

Bonus idiocy:

Quote:
However, Health Minister Greg Hunt has been the most vocal critic of the Greens’ proposals [to legalize marijuana], saying that legalising a “gateway drug” would create physical and mental health problems.

“Marijuana is a gateway drug. The risk of graduating to ice or to heroin from extended marijuana use is real and documented,” Mr Hunt told reporters in Melbourne.
The risk of graduating to ice or to heroin from extended marijuana use is real and documented

Denmark were gonna pry people's wedding rings off as they entered the country to "pay for welfare". Something has been rotten in the state of denmark for some time.

Re: July LC Thread **Survivor White House Edition**

Hey guise remember when we spent circa 2007-2012 debating whether DOCTOR Ron Paul M.D. was a genuine racist or merely played one in newsletters?





Also it's a Ben Garrison cartoon because of course it is.

I'd say these guys are barely trying to hide it anymore, but DOCTOR Paul did replace the image in his tweet so I mean I guess they're still trying to hide it a little bit?

Anyway sometimes you'll hear pundits say Sarah Palin was the canary in the coal mine for Trumpism but sharp observers know it was Ron ****ing Paul and he was really the forebearer of the movement. 90% of Ron Paul Blimp passengers migrated straight into r/TheDon without missing a beat.

I hate to defend Garrison, but that looks suspiciously like one of the cartoons trolls modified to make it even more explicitly racist.
