A Year After Trump, Democrats, Socialists, and Populists Sweep Elections



I really don’t want to defend LePen here but from that article it sounds like she’s being railroaded.

She probably deserves it for all the shit she’s done but it doesn’t sound like she did anything serious with the pictures she shared at all.

The Conservative Party keep manufacturing JUSTs at a dangerously unprecedented rate.

The Democrats fucking conquered Virginia. Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General , and House of Delegates are all in Democrat hands.

That Charlottesville protest backfired horribly.


that was exactly what it was intended to do

Yeah, then some sperg made the poor situation into a fucking catastrophe completely independent of any machinations but an autistic mind.

Why the hell is Turkey still in NATO

Because they know NATO can fuck up whatever they want. The Balkan Wars showed that the USA and the EU can do whatever they want, so staying in NATO is like being the butt-boy of the bullies. Yeah it sucks, but it’s better than the alternative.>>2235322

Maybe the landwhale shouldn't have thrown herself in front a moving car then.

Maybe you shouldn't entice the urine out of your bladder every fight you get into.

2018 is going to be a hell of a ride.

As someone working in management for a very well-known retailer, it's worse than people on the outside think. Workers are being asked to do more and more in less and less time, and they are unfairly punished and criticized when impossible goals are not met daily. Working off the clock has skyrocketed in my particular district. Manager-speak is the order of the day even more than when things were less terrible. Receiving 50 hours worth of freight with only 25 hours available to push. Shit is bad man, and this is only one district, one store, out of thousands.

It won't be a collapse, it'll be a fucking Hindenburg.

Wasn’t it a Sikh?

Man that's fucked.

Sounds accurate and I’m just a drone who works at a chain that nearly everyone considers “healthy”

Only Americans would consider a transgender legislator getting elected a great victory of leftism.

It's highly amusing to find out that of the 3 Payless stores I've worked at, 2 have shut down due to bankruptcy/mall closings.

Make sense though, they are resorting to those practices to stave off bankruptcy, not to just extract greater profits. This isn't regular porky action, this is scared porky action. I mean look at Kmart, that shit is collapsing and they don't even have enough assets to pay off all their debts in case of bankruptcy.
