Bernie Sanders joked about a topless protester who had messages written on her body during a radio interview on Tuesday.
President Donald Trump on Wednesday directed the Education Department to more easily forgive the federal student loans owed by veterans with disabilities, making a move Education Secretary Betsy DeVos had resisted for months.
Veterans and other student loan borrowers who are “totally and permanently” disabled are entitled under existing law to have their federal student loans canceled by the Education Department. But they previously had to fill out paperwork to have their loans discharged — a bureaucratic obstacle that veterans’ advocates slammed as too burdensome for many severely disabled veterans.
Trump said he was “taking executive action to ensure that our wounded warriors are not saddled with mountains of student debt,” vowing to “eliminate every penny of federal student loan debt owed by American veterans who are completely and permanently disabled.”
“The debt of these disabled veterans will be entirely erased,” Trump said during remarks at a veterans convention in Louisville, Ky. “It will be gone.”
The move will wipe out “hundreds of millions” in student loan debt owed by more than 25,000 disabled veterans, Trump said. The average amount forgiven would be about $30,000, he said.
Obama jointly used his departments of Justice and Education to declare that all learning institutions that take federal funds — from kindergarten through graduate school — must allow students to enjoy the lavatories, locker rooms, showers, other facilities, and sports teams that correspond not to their objective genitalia but to their subjective “gender identity.” According to the DOJ and the DOE: “Gender identify refers to an individual’s internal sense of gender. A person’s gender identity may be different from or the same as the person’s sex defined at birth.”
Three mice are in a bar bragging about how tough they are. First mouse says, “when I see mouse bait, I like to put a pinch between my cheek and gum and get a good high for the day”, and then slams his bottle on the bar.
Second mouse says, “when I see a mousetrap, I take the cheese, catch the bar in my teeth and do twenty reps with the bar”, and then slams his bottle on the bar.
The third mouse drinks his drink, puts the glass on the counter and says “I don’t have time for this shit, I gotta go home and fuck the cat.”
Scenario: You’re in your own home with your wife and newborn baby. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife kicks in the door, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges. You are carrying a 45 and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?
Whats a 45? Well, that’s not enough information to answer the question! Does the man look poor or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? Could we run away? What does my wife think? What about the baby? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? What does the law say about this situation?
Does the Gun have appropriate safety built into it? Why do I have a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children? Is it possible he’d be happy with just killing me? Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me? If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
Should I call 9-1-1? We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.
This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus.
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! click….(sounds of reloading).
Wife: “Nice grouping, Honey! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips??
Russian President Putin called President Donald Trump with an emergency. “Our largest condom factory has exploded!” the Russian President cried. “It’s my people’s favorite form of birth control. This is a true disaster!”
“Mr. Putin, the American people would be happy to do anything within their power to help you,” replied the President.
“I do need your help” said Putin. “Could you possibly send 1,000,000 condoms ASAP to tide us over?”
“Why certainly! I’ll get right on it,”said Trump.
“Oh, and one more small favor, please?” said Putin.
“Could the condoms be red in color and at least 10″ long and 4″ in diameter?” said Putin.
“No problem,” replied the President.
Mr. Putin hung up and started laughing with his aides about how those stupid Americans will fall for anything.
Donald hung up and called the President of a condom company. “I need a favor. You’ve got to send 1,000,000 condoms right away over to Russia.”
“Consider it done,” said the president of the condom company.
“Great! Now listen, they have to be red in color, 10″ long and 4″ wide.”
“Easily done. Anything else?”
“Yeah,” said the President, “print ‘MADE IN AMERICA, SIZE: SMALL’ on each one!”
