Thank You Based Newsanon

There's still a net gain due to Turkish immigration.

Thank You NewsAnon!

good anime

Burgers at it again.

Shit, you can be this retarded and still get a job as a teacher? I might have to look into this..

you might be joking but I have a lot of close family deeply ingrained in the education system and 80% of these people should never be able to teach. It's astonishing how low the bar is for teachers. Too many aren't even teaching what they focused in and are just handed a handbook to recite and make sure x number of students passes.


I'm very ashamed to say I've seen that pic in perso

fix your site you fat pedophile tinfoil

If the Catalan people back down in the face of Spanish repression, I'm gonna be so fucking depressed for months to come.

...

More people need to say it, tbh.

Bush being stupid was just a meme; he was obviously very intelligent guy. Trump being stupid is just a fact; anyone who listens to him talk and doesn't have their head up their ass will realize he's incredibly intellectually impaired.

*a very

You don't think he's unironically pretending to be retarded? You can listen to how he speaks before the election and he doesn't sound retarded at all.

Once again confirms my suspicion that the next tech boom will be in, basically, replicating sustaining natural processes so that humanity can continue to exist. Ecological engineering is coming in fast buckos:

Why do you think Bush was intelligent? His father, sure, but he himself sounded like a child in public speaking. t. Britbong and I wasn't as politically active when he was president so I'm no expert

You'd think so, but the NSA's transnational corporate backers all need their man on the inside.

...

Absolute madman.

>You're a Russian co-conspirator!

Trotskyist thinks the Neocon president is intelligent. Go figure.

This is why this board should embrace Shia Islam, we need a Hezbollah flag tbh

No, a Nazbollah one

No, Trump always sounds like a retard except for when he has a script.

Bush was actually dumb. Trump just makes him look smart.

Let's blame Russia seems to be the game everyone plays in the government when they don't get anything they wanted

lol

It's not even like Putin is a communist or anything, it's just capitalist oligarchs fighting each other, there's really there for people to attach themselves too, Russia and the US don't give a fuck about their people.

Why not both(as well as a long, long overdue Posadist flag).

Thank you news user

forgot my question mark, also polite sage

Iran's supreme leader calling Trump a retard sounds like it should be a Memri TV meme.

Bush and Bush apologists are literally the "I was only PRETENDING to be retarded" meme come to life

Bush Sr. sure, Dubya hell no. I read his ghostwritten autobiography and even that shit clearly insinuated that he just let Cheney and friends run the show for him.

...

It's not about what's easy, it's about sacrifice to the god market. Suggesting preservation will get you 40 lashes.

I don't know, if you watch interviews of him he seems entirely articulate and bright. Doesn't mean I like him, I just don't think he was stupid.

People let the "Bushisms" overshadow the fact that, unlike Trump, the vast majority of his speeches and interviews went by without any major fuck ups or mistakes.

b-but man, we gotta kill those mosqitoes, they give me the itchy things and that's such a minior problem that's totally worth completely going against nature to prevent. If the birds die too that's even better, at least they won't poo on my brand new Mercedes.

bush was clearly not intelligent in the way that barry or bill were. just because he wasn't clearly suffering from dementia doesn't make him a brain genius.

Trump just keeps losing
