What is DSA? I’ve seen the acronym on a few things I’ve read about happening in the last day or so. ... and am interested.

Oh, put Jeffrey's Romans speech on repeat, and blast it over the sound of toddlers crying.

People should hang for this.

There were asylum seekers that took voluntary deportation with the hope of being reunited with their children, and weren't. I'm not exaggerating. People should hang.

Hey nielsen, you just held a press conference where you attempted to justify locking up brown toddlers. What are you gonna do next!?

"I'm going out for fajitas!"

.... I don't see how she thought that was a good idea.

Ok, good first step. Now how about the NPR report yesterday about the asylum seekers who took voluntary deportation expecting to be reunited with their children, and were fucking not!?

I’m lucky to work for a company that has branches worldwide... so it’s just about finding a proper transfer.

Thanks for the pep talk. I’m not far along in the process, and laziness will likely set in... but I’d much rather be the family that looks back an 40 years saying “damn we’re glad we got out early” rather than those that had to stay and deal with the 4th Reich.

Because he could announce today that he's firing Jeff Sessions for overreach

Jeff Sessions is evil, but not a dummy. You know he made a recording of when Trump told him to enact this policy, meaning that a congressional hearing would see right through the attempt to fire him.

Wait... I just said congressional hearing.... fuck. Jeffrey is scrweed.

Through this whole ordeal, I've never actually considered leaving the country.

I started looking for jobs yesterday.

I can’t just blame trump anymore.

I can.

I can’t just even blame trump supporters any more.

I do.

At this point, I blame all you Americans. What the hell are you waiting for to protest this evil policy?

This shows a fundamental misunderstanding with our situation here - and I say that with love. We are organizing. The problem is, things are coming at us so fucking fast. Every day there's a new atrocity, and if we don't pick our battles, then people get burnt out. So, the USA is a gigantic place. Furthermore, we don't have a good train system that we can just hop on to go protest at the capitol, like many European countries... if we want to protest in any meaningful way, we need to be sure that there's enough of a wave of protest that it gets heard.

If 500 people show up to protest at Arizona's state capitol, it doesn't make national news. Fuck, it might not even make Arizona news. So we have to schedule our protests for weeks in advance, because we're really fucking spread out.

The problem we're dealing with, of course, is that by protesting something weeks in advance, by the time it comes along, we're no longer marching because of incarcerated babies, and our message gets watered down.

The solution may be a national general strike... but again, that takes a LOT of organization to not just walk out on your job for nothing.

I can.

The national guard should also be enforcing the rulings of the Allied tribunal at Nuremburg, and publicly hang those ICE agents involved.

See? Still not a threat.

Glad to hear this. It was 4 yesterday afternoon.

I mean, I have literally no hope that Arizona will do it, but at least in the coming civil war, I'd like Arizona to be outnumbered.

Are they?

Rugby is kind of a big deal there, since it was used as a tool to stop apartheid and everything...

I mean, I agree. This is most likely one of Austrailia (if OP is talking league), New Zealand, or SA.... and of those, NZ is the most likely.

I didn’t point out that cat rentals aren’t a thing.

I once read a comment on reddit where someone was presented with a perfect opportunity to fill a niche in the market that hadn't been filled, and just complained about her first potential customer wanting something they didn't understand.
