NY Times - “This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google,” he told the packed auditorium. “‘Don’t just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table’ — Donald J. Trump.”
The crowd burst into applause. President Trump is quite popular in Pineville and the surrounding area, which is the heart of coal country and overwhelmingly supported the president in the 2016 election after he promised to bring coal jobs back to America.
“Just kidding,” he said. “That was Barack Obama.”
The cheering abruptly stopped. The crowd went mostly silent. There was a lone boo.
Ah, yes, tribalism at its best. If Trump says something, it's gold. If Obama says something, it's globalist propaganda being used to destroy America and abort babies. I think this little clip highlights a major problem in our country right now. Nobody cares about what is being said, they only care about who is saying it.
Major props to this kid for getting up there and trolling the hell out of his class. I'm sure it can't be easy being smart in Kentucky.
This kids gets an A+++++ in trolling.
It turns out men on the shorter side really do feel like they have something to prove. Researchers at Vrije University in the Netherlands split a group of 42 men into pairs and allowed them to meet their opponents in a money sharing game researchers called the “Dictator Game.” The game is used to assess how fairly individuals treat others. They found that shorter men responded more aggressively when competing in the game, as long as there were no repercussions. Lead researcher Jill Knapen says, “It’s probably smart for short men to be like this because they have [fewer] opportunities to get resources.” Specifically, the shortest men in the study, around 5-foot-seven inches, were most aggressive, while the tallest men in the study, at six-foot-two inches, were least aggressive. This all means that the Napoleon Complex is real.
Well, I guess this explains Ben Shapiro.

Target.com The retail giant Target recently announced it is now offering drive-up service for its stores in Florida and Texas. Customers can place their order on the Target mobile app and then they'll receive a notification when the order is ready for pickup (usually within two hours). When you arrive at the store, park in one of the designated parking spots and then notify Target that you've arrived. An employee will then come to your car to complete the transaction. It's that easy!
I know, I know, it's hard to believe we're now living in a world where we're no longer burdened by such trivialities as "walking" or "pushing a cart" while shopping at Target. But actually, Target's drive-up service has been around since last fall and is currently available in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and South Carolina. Judging by this list, it appears as though the South is finally getting its sweet revenge for the Civil War. Northerners still have to get out of their cars and search for items in the store like idiots. But don't worry, Target is planning to expand the service to more stores nationwide by the end of 2018.
