Re: Oakland California Mayor Oughtta be in Jail

We need more people like her in the country. Trump is a fool to go after immigrants. Despite their grating music, Mexicans, like every other country, should be allowed to walk across the border and not face deportation. We have enough food to let them all in, and they will fill the positions no one ...

Re: DENVER

Of course, Amsterdam is the model for cannabis legalization. They turned it from a problem to a boon. Now they make billions on tourists and taxes. And the whole thing is very quaint. Even if you go to Amsterdam and don’t smoke, the coffeeshops are a real draw.

Re: Donald Nixon

I find Trump’s similarity to Nixon endearing. Both outsiders, both falling under heavy attack by liberals. But I think trump doesn’t deserve it.

Re: Mueller Indicts 13 Russian Nationals

I think it's funny, countries knowingly allow foreign spies into the country. I think Trump did the right thing deporting all of those diplomats. He’s been pretty strong on foreign policy. Quick and thoughtful action. He must have some intelligent people on his team.

Re: We are going to undress them on the street - cops

The idea of confiscating clothing from random guys is so outlandish. Cops are supposed to take things like weapons and drugs. Buncha criminals if you ask me.

Re: No cash for public transportation.

In NYC they have this crazy card system where you swipe the card on the outside of the bus. And then if you don’t keep your card you will be practically incarcerated if a cop catches you. I remember in Amsterdam they had this funny system where you buy a ticket and you don’t even have to swipe it. F...

Re: Laughing gas

When I was in college we had a laughing gas blowout. My friends were experimenting with different kinds of drugs. I didn’t like laughing gas very much, it was like hyperventilating. I think that a big part of that blowout was an attempt to crash the party of some unwanted non gratas.

A half hour later two doppelganger porters loaded my bags, and I was on a bus to the airport. The trip has been much anticipated and much worried abo...

Copenhagen, day 4 Today I went to Helsinore, site of Hamlet. Its primary purpose was to collect taxes from passing ships. If a ship tried to pass then the castle would open fire.
